Well… today was pretty productive. I definitely prefer building and creating over demolition. But I like that I’m making room for what comes next. So here is what I started with. I wasn’t sure how hard taking this bad boy down would be. But I located my crow bar and my favorite hammer and got started. First off… those ridiculous tiles. There was some leaking from above the window during the fall/winter. It’s all fixed now. But its obvious that it...
Mesquite Slabs 10/4 thick, 24-36” wide, 17’ Long. Would make great conferance table or bar top. Check out the figure in these!!
Sanded to 40 grit on my 80 inch belt sander. Showing off the surface textures from the belt sander, so here’s a close up. Got this glue from dude on Ebay. Thumbs up ! Search E-Z Bond
This silly story started Sunday evening when I was all jazzed up after watching my Broncos clinch their ticket to the Super Bowl! I decided I wanted to make a video for my YouTube channel that was Bronco related as a way of showing a little team spirit. So Monday morning I found a beetle kill pine log in our shop and decided I’d take a shot at chainsaw carving – something I’ve never done before but have wanted to try for a long time now. Using my 445 Husqvarna with a standar...
I have a day job that allows me to have a nice office full of furniture that I built. The office doesn’t have a window to the outside, but rather 2 walls of glass that turn inward to the building. It calls to mind a sort of human zoo, where I am one of the attractions. I have a number of interesting things placed in those windows for everyone to see, hopefully distracting them from looking at me. One of the stranger things that I am often questioned about is a stack of 100+ structural...
Onward and upward. I made the drawers out of hard maple. The front of the drawers were made using a Porter cable dovetail jig to produce half blind dovetails. The back of the drawers was simple butt joint construction, using glue and brad nails. The rear piece was ripped short so it could be installed, then the bottom slid in. I anchored the bottom with several short staples across the back. This method works out pretty well for me. Cutting the dovetails on the front only reduces produc...
I am very happy with the quality of cut I am getting with the Fussion blade, and have no reservations about gluing up the panels right off of the TS. Smoother and straighter than my jointer produces (granted, it’s a really old jointer). My daughter came down and cut the biscuit joints and assisted with the glue up. I’m so glad she did, as we needed to move fast. We were much better organized and prepared than my first build, yet were still challenged to get it clamped up qui...
I ordered this bad boy a week ago and it got here today and I live in japan! Wow was that fast. Only problem now is I don’t have a honing. Guide and they are on back order:(

Hi Buddies and fellow LJ’s. I am sorry I have not been around these past few weeks but things have been pretty hard to handle. Then on Saturday 28th June life really kicked me in the gut when my amazing loving wife Kelley passed away in the ICU of the Hospital. I cant even face the workshop knowing my Kelley will not be on the other side of the wall doing her pottery while I am making sawdust. I am so very lost with out her, 18 years younger than me she was far far to young to leav...
