The project is nearing the end. Adding the storage drawers provides a good area to put all those odds and ends that are needed to play darts. Thank you for following my build. I appreciate the questions and feedback that has been provided. Mike View on YouTube
From a Worthing Herald report ”A MASSIVE clean-up operation is underway after 2,000 tons of timber washed up on Worthing’s beaches.Giant mountains of wood have hit almost every beach along the town’s coastline, drawing visitors from across Sussex. Here is a video clip showing the scale of the problem, and here's a slide show. The timber comes from the cargo ship Ice Prince, which was on its way to Egypt when it sank 25 nautical miles south of Portland on Monday. Her...

Summer and motorcycles seem to have interrupted my bench build for far longer than I thought. Six!!! months. Wow. I did get the dog block fitted and installed before getting distracted. All that’s left to do on the top is cut the mortises for the legs, drill the dog holes, (yes, round pooches for me), rout the mortise for the sliding deadman, and cut the tops to final length. ALL of those depend on the location of the legs, which depends on the final length of the base, which won...

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...
