This week pasted rather quickly with some snow days included but the good news is I got some extra shop time to finish my cleaning and have already started pulling things apart again. Was able to almost complete an order of wine tilts for a customer but still waiting for the garage to get above 40 so I can spray lacquer them. Hopefully tomorrow. May have to spur it a bit with a heater. I am sure some of you are aware it is Pine Wood Derby Season again, I had a friend call and ask if her son c...

Greetings all, As I mentioned last week I wanted to take this 3rd week of the month and focus on selling products. First a little background… My wife and I both enjoy making things, she in her sewing room and I in my shop, we decided about 4 years ago to participate in the local HOA craft fair in the fall. We decided to stick with one major theme for both of our stuff… Portable Pastimes.We didn’t even have enough items to fill one 6’ table, we shared a space with my ...
With my new direction.. come trying to clean up and reorganize my shop/basement/marquetry studio. I have also decided that about 50% of the stuff in my house… does not need to be here. Since selling off the last of the power tools (cabinet saw) I am a large amount of space in the middle of the shop… waiting for some to put there. Mostly I have my saw bench set there…. with a ton of stuff sitting on top of it. Anyways… I decided to get underway and just do it, and...

Every woodworker should have one of these in their tool kit. A thumb plane. Nothing more than a real small plane with a blade no more than one inch wide. For being so small, it has a lot of versatility. I use mine mostly for creating small chamfers, or for easing sharp corners on project components, but it is also a great little tool to grab for trimming veneer edges, cleaning up small dovetailed or box jointed corners, flush trimming dowels, and even finish smoothing work on ...

It is snowing out.Again.I must say that this has been one of the snowiest winters we have had here in Nova Scotia since I came here to live eleven years ago. We already have an average of 2-3 feet on the ground and they are predicting more snow by the weekend. I laugh at the predictions because I think that they are merely guessing. As I checked today's forecast before I began writing this post, it said "Precipitation not expected in the next three hours." Yet as I look out my w...
So I was surfing the net and found a video about a guy (a real woodworker) making a cart for his vacuum and accessories. This is of real interest to me as I have got to be real careful of breathing and the lungs. So I said, ” I have already got the cart so just build the rest. Started by rounding up all of my vacuum accessories (I think) and planning how to best store them. I came up with a system of three shelves. The first on has a cut out to fit the different size vacuum ...
