When we bought this house it had an old cast iron fireplace on a big rock hearth backed by a rock wall witha halfwall on the right side. I got tired of the monstrosity and tore it out, without taking any pictures of it.The removal included taking out the old stove pipe through the attic and roof that leaked every time it rainedand replacing it with a new one that exited through the side of the house. I do not have and pictures of thedestruction or construction, but here is the finished prod...
I knew when a fellow LJ’r Tom Francis told me about this site, that is was something special. Little did I know!! I was perusing the projects recently and saw a new workbench posted by Don Husslein. The bench was beautiful, but what really caught my eye was had attached to it an old Gripmaster vise system. I was given one of these in a box, i.e. no instructions, no pictures, no nothing but the pieces. Well, lo and behold, here is one on a work bench, and had made the remark to Do...

I show you a cool trick for cutting small dowel pieces and then the assembly begins. For small parts like this, I actually have a cool method glue-up that involves the use of two different glues. I then cut the triangle shape using a circular saw and a guide, which works surprisingly well. Finally, I add the mite...
I finished the Gingerbread Candle Tray set yesterday. It was near-done for the past couple of days, but I finished cutting and staining the little charms and doing the photography on it. I think it came out OK. It isn’t one of my most intricate projects, but I found that a lot of people are interested in it and I think it will be a nice and quick project to get done in time for the holidays. Here are the pictures of the finished holder: From SLD337 Gingerbread Candle Tray and Ch...

My prize for The Sawdust Chronicles Fall 2009 Build Challenge. Here is what I Got
Item two involves notifying everyone you know about your new business. Before starting this I would make up some business cards that clearly state the work you do. Make them clean looking and avoid anything that might confuse people about the work you do. I have made some excellent cards on my computer using simple software and biz card stock but you can also purchase them and even get some for the price of shipping from a company called VistaPrint.com. Once you have the cards, start by fa...
