Just wanted to congratulate Jordan for being featured in the current Highlander e-magazine. That beautiful war shirt certainly displays some of his spectacular talent. For those who do not get the Highlander emails – here is a link to the article – Jordan's war shirt carving. Great to see some of your fantastic carvings getting more exposure….it should certainly lead to more commissions as more realize what exquisite work you do.
I’m making a credenza based on a design (“Reflect storage”) by Soren Rose Studio I saw on a website (http://www.finnishdesignshop.fi/huonekalut-kirjahyllyt-reflect-lipasto-p-5098.html). The drawer fronts are like propellers. I have never done anything similar, and lacking any instructions I decided to make them like this. I considered routing instead of table sawing the rough shape, but for some reason felt more comfortable with the saw. Please comment on possible easier ...
My wife and I love going across our state and looking for antiques. I have gotten so caught up in it I have started a face book page called Mississippi Antique Enthusiast. I have filled most of the basic and easy to find tools on my list. Now I am down to the rare or neat stuff. Today at Beckys Antiques in Louisville MS I found a Yankee #41 buy North Brothers with a few bits in the handle. It was tucked off in the corner. The store had taken over a few old stores and knocked ...
These are the rounds (now in the kiln) that will be used for gaming tables mentioned in the last entry … 9 of them should give us some good options. I’m thinking a nice simple S curve walnut flitch bench out of this one. Pondering legs, maybe osage since we now have that or mulberry with some interesting looking rough cross beams. Maybe 8 legs kinda cater-type-piller look out of the flitches along the curve of the piece. Ideas keep coming along – TIME and m...
I am considering offering a new special for those who would like to take my Maloof-style rocking chair class. After talking to a number of woodworkers, I have come up with a “class bundle” offer for a week of instruction on rocking chair science. If at least six (6) woodworkers sign up for any week-long (5 days) “class bundle,” then, by a drawing, one of those woodworkers will receive that “class bundle” for FREE. Included in the five-day (Monday t...

Today I was able to route and square all the mortises for the haunched tenons.To start, I laid out the legs with the best faces facing outward and numbered them so I know which way each leg should face and where the mortises would go.I then measured in so that the apron was 3/8” from each outside edge of the leg and scored them.I then lightly went over each scratch mark with a pencil to make the lines easier to see.The mortises are going to be 3/8” wide by 3 1/2” by 1”...
I have never fished for walleye and I’m planning to this year sometime, mid March to end of April. Has anyone fished at Maumee and what kind of lure do you use, pound test line, etc…. Any information will help. Thanks
God Bless Craigs List!!! I just picked up a lightly used radial arm saw for $65!!!!I need to make a new table and rip fence for it, but for $65, I don’t think I can beat the price! I downloaded the manual. I had no idea these saw’s could do so much! Cross Cut, Rip Cut, Rout!!!! This thing is a Jack of all trades!!!! I will probably only use it for rip cutting, but hey, you never know!
woodworkerscott just came out and took my two small Craftsman saws off my hands. I only advertised here in a blog and a week later they are sold. That’s pretty cool.I hope they serve well for a long time.
