So I got to looking at Martin’s recent changes with the projects section of the site. And I was kind of drilling around the pages at my stuff, when I realized a couple of my projects had the Daily Top 3 badges… Now I know what kind of woodworker I am. Pretty bad at it, but I have fun, and I get stuff done. Slowly, with a lot of mistakes, but I learn to hide them pretty well… The only thing I can figure is I must be posting up projects on days when nothing else is being...
A few months back. Mike (jockmike2) and I went in together on a couple hundred board feet of air dried lumber at Raven’s Farm, a mill that is local to us. The cost came out to about 1.25 a board foot which was a steal as far as I was concerned. Boards have been setting for a bit, with a dozen getting acclimated to the shop. I don’t have the space for a jointer so have been working the boards with a recent plane addition and then running them through my Ridgid. Woodworking i...
Here is a router table I made from an old table saw top. I wanted to have a router table that was solid and accurate when making cuts. I found this table saw top in my dad’s garage one day and I knew just what I was going to do with it. Using an end mill in my router, I carefully routered a flat pocket in the back side of the top just big enough to mount the router to it. Then I purchased a piece of gage stock to replace the blade insert plate. To get the right shape I needed to cut the...
In the last while, I have been sanding and shaping the helicopter. I did end up getting the pneumatic sander. It is the perfect tool for the job. I have probably spent 10 hours, but many more are to come. It is ver difficult to get it to the same shape of the real helicopter, it is still more square-ish then I would like it to be. Also just realized that the rear-bottom comes to a point, so a lot of material is yet to be removed. Thanks in advance for your comments.
This isn’t a tutorial, but a way to remind myself. Simple isn’t very forgiving. I’ve finished one simple black ebony pen with the hopes of equaling the same finish quality. A shiny glossy ca glue finish was the lofty goal I was trying to attain. Tonight I was denied the satisfaction. This was my 3rd pen. The 1st was done on a whim which led to the 2nd. The 1st was done without care and expectations, but the gauntlet was thrown down. It generated interest where someone reque...
Hi guys. yesterday i decided to make a quick n easy chiselrack for my new japanese chisels, they dont really deserve to be hidden away in a box on the shelve. i made it from some Wengé scrap that was just sitting there under my workbench anyways, this is the first picture after i assembled it,so its not done yet, and the chisels haven’t been fitted :) ps: iam making this after i sign out at work, so iam using my free time :)

Follow along as I build a tenor guitar. In this video I’ll finish fitting, shaping and gluing in the top bracing.
I haven’t fallen of the face of the earth but I am behind on the Queen Size bed build. It has become a money pit because of a 5/8” mortising bit that I didn’t own. Then I realized that the throat on the mortising machine is on 6” and the bottom rail is 8” so I ordered a 5/8” mortising chisel. While waiting for it to get here I dry fit the head board and low and behold a queen size bed is more than 6’ wide and by the way that was the longest length of pipe clamp that I owned. So then I shell o...
