Some of you may remember a previous post, where I was looking for someone to turn the handles required for the bench. Old Pete from the Australian Woodwork Forums answered the call. The original handle brain storm. The completed project, arrived in the mail today. The timber is Australian Blackwood. Pete, was more than generous, turned two alternate handles for the wheels, and two handles for the pins, and offered to re-make them if they don’t feel right. I do like the online wood...

As i have been building this thing, i have had my nose in the Schwarz’s book. However, i cringed when during my review i read this: Once you look at the characteristics that make a species good for a workbench, you see that white oak, Southern yellow pine, fir, poplar or just about any species (excepting bass wood and the soft white pines) will perform brilliantly. (p.14) And for some salt in the wound: Anyone who has purchased a white pine 2×4 bench from a home center can...
These are some of the jigs and such I made to get going on my box project. A zero clearance plate and a push-stick that my son said looked like a shark, so….. A miter sled made from scraps and a MDF shelf for the base A jig for cutting the splines, a Doug Stowe design off of his “Basic Box Making” DVDI also canabalized a pine shelf for it I thought I made a cross cutting sled, but it must be in the mess of my garage.Anyways, thanks for looking:)

Well its been a while since I posted an update on the everlasting build of the nightstands. I’m starting to move much quicker now with the build, but still only get a few hours a week to work on it. I’m still on though to apply finish before end of July so hopefully by August it will be fully assembled. All thats left now is the Drawers and top, and a few big fixes to some mistakes which might be more time consuming than I think to fix. These pictures don’t show too mu...
Over the 4th of July long weekend we had our family over to our house to spend the weekend playing games and building tables. To make a long story short, my wife’s family had a barn on their childhood property. The barn blew over when hurricane Ike came through and they wanted to do something with the barn wood to remind them of the great times on the property. I came up with a design for a shadowbox type sofa/entry table. All the siblings bought into the design and agreed to build...
I have an old contractor type saw which I think is great, it’s a bit like the old Delta it has round bar type rails front & rear it crosscuts great but the fence never settles accurately. I has a link rod running through the fence to a a locking bar that tightens up on the back rail & I ‘ve sprayed it all with silicone to try & reduce friction still no luck. When I set it exactly from my mitre slides the next move ment may be ok or as much as a 1/32” out. I’...
Ok, so this may or may not be the correct place to post this…..but heregoes: We have a smaller 1930’s house in central Indiana. I am simply just not satisfied with the furniture i see in stores. the size is too big, the price is wrong for the materials it’s made of, the colors are weird or they are just poor poor quality. My wife and I want to try building our own pair of love seats or a really wide chair that has become more popular in the past few years. I will prob...
