Beginning not quite with the Thing being turned around. Read on. Here’s what happened yesterday and today in the world of turning a Wing-ed Bowl. Yesterday: At 1145 or so, I did some more sanding. This is where a crack started really getting my attention. At 1215, I turned my attention to the end-grain areas. (Disregard the 1745 in the upper-left – it’s wrong). The crack must be dealt with. It can’t get any longer. But it sure can open up. Methinks…...
So coat #1 being done in 2 parts, top, then bottom, is still drying on the bottom. It would appear I managed to get a few runs in the paint as well. Not sure I care, the idea is matte black to reduce the visible stage presence of this device. The intent behind this is functional with “5 foot” looks, as in if you can’t tell the problems at 5 feet away they don’t matter. The humidity around me has been fluctuating like crazy this week, so the paint is taking forever t...
When I learned about the bookcase design challenge I immediately wanted to design this bookshelf. I came up with the original idea when I took a furniture design class at BYU from Kip Christensen. I decided then to fully design and build a different project which I will post later on my blog. I draw inspiration for this project from, well… trees. What better inspiration is there to a woodworker? As I designed this project ideas kept flowing and the end product just kept getting bette...

After waiting a while for the finish to cure and a brief hiatus out of town, the Queen Anne Side Table is finally complete. I posted about the final finish process, and adding the hardware at my blog. There are a bunch of pictures of the finished table and some close-ups as well. Thanks for reading!
I got out of my blogging groove on these project. Due mainly to a heavy travel schedule, it’s taken me long time to get them both done. I finished the first one about 4 weeks ago and an have the second just about done. So, instead of a step by step, I’ll post some pictures from the along the way, and then I’ll post them as projects at some point. They are similar designs, as you can clearly see, but with some important differences The first font is QSWO, the bowl ha...

My Shop is just in the utility room of my house. As you walk in through a narrow hallway it open up to this. I have a little rack I’ve built for my axes, and adze, and acouple of digging tools there. As well as a planner, and a Jointer that we given to me. my buddy got some new ones and he just wanted them out of his shop. Free tools!!!! They are a lot faster then hewing and planing by hand. though I do enjoy hand tool work, I find myself waiting for a time I can use machines to make ...
Well I decided (read the wife decided) that I had waited long enough and that the bandsaw should go back and I would pick from one in stock today…. SO we went down to woodcraft this afternoon while we were on the way to a BBQ some of my wifes friends were throwing (woodcraft is in the same area as the friends) The manager at woodcraft was excellent as really he has been since this all started.. we unloaded the bandsaw in the back and he showed me the s14” saws they had in stoc...
As promised I made the stop, and a whole lot more. The guitar is almost done. It plays and my son gave it a whirl and he likes it. The String Stop – Needs Polishing The overall view is shown below. I finished the body (maple / limba blend) with satin poly. i finished the neck with lacquer and wet sanded it to 2000. Apparently guitar players like the feel of lacquer and it has good properties when used next to the skin a lot. I finished the fretboard with lemon oil (D-L...
