Building the NYWS chair. Using Cypress from Crossroads Sawmill in Land of Lakes, Florida. Planed it down today and letting it dry some. I picked it up yesterday in the rain, but what a better way to waste an afternoon right? I’ll post pictures as the project comes along.
As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I cut all the drawer blanks in preparation for today’s work. Unfortunately, most of the wood cupped overnight. So I had to scrap about 75% of the pine pieces. So, there is a lesson about the free wood. I guess you get what you pay for! I was able to salvage four of the drawer assembles, I put those together with glue, brads and clamps. I got to use two of my new Jorgensen Cabinet Master clamps, and will be writing a review later (spoiler:...
So I bought the wood in February 2012 and it sat in my garage until just now! Mainly because our 1.5 car garage was taken up by our pop up camper, but also because I didn’t have the drive just yet to get outside – it happens. So as the clock is ticking down for daughter #2, I realize that I had better get cracking on this project. I officially started breaking down the plywood on the 7th and just completed the cases last week. Now two weeks may seem like a long time to do this...

So I made a decent pair of hinges, but when I placed them on the box, they looked a little big for the application… Well, I can’t enlarge the box very easily… So I guess I’ll just have to “shrink” the hinges!! It’s good that these are versatile, but it took a little extra work to achieve…The center/lid stop part had to have its hole re-sized (in order to become a slip-fit) and I thought it “Stuck out” a little too far… so...
Anyone following what I do will know that I have moved from Ontario Canada to Alberta Canada (2500miles)When I lived in Ontario I had older staple guns that required T15 staples. I had 4 of these that I purchased from yard sales over the years. When I got to Ontario and tried buying them everyone there told me they no longer make that staple and can’t get them anymore. BUY THIS NEW gun that used T50.The next setback I had when I was in Ontario was the finishes that I liked to use. I hav...
So, jobs are hard to come by these days and so life has been on hold. No job means no new house and no new house means no shop, and no shop means no woodworking. But that’s ok, patience is a virtue. Anyway I’ve been using all my spare time to experiment with sketchup and to read a lot of books. Here is the workbench I designed with the help of Christopher Schwartz’s Workbench Design Book. This will have to do until I gain so meaningful employment. I sent out a few res...
