Hi, I thought you folks would like to read about this. We learned today that The Noyes Museum of Art juried Glen in as a Signature Artist. We had to submit 20 images of his work along with his Bio and artist statement. This is so great!!! Marie
As a semi-anual tradition (on an as-needed basis) I clean out my shop and load my truck with the un-lucky wood scraps that don’t make the “cut”, and either take them camping or to the beach for a very exotic, very expensive bonfire. So last week my wife and I camped for two nights at Pfieffer Big Sur along the coast of California. This is about 6 months worth of scraps awaiting there fate: A partial list of whats in that pile: Highly figured 8/4 Quilted Maple...

This has been a good week for getting stuff done and working toward having a place to work. I made another bench. Well, not quite the same as my workbench but very similar. It is going to give me a place to put some stuff. I am deciding right now but it will probably hold my mortiser, my wet grinder, and my baby drill press. I am really playing musical chairs with my tools to make room for the latest addition. Not totally woodworking related but I picked up a little metal lathe to add to...
Hello LJ’s, It has been pointed out, and rightfully so, that I am really descriptive in every aspect of my blog posts, except my methodology. This is true and tonight I decided to give a much more detailed account of how I glue up a tiny box with 45 degree angled joints. I have lots of pictures and of course, a silly introduction. Tragic Error in Communications – Extremely Average http://su.pr/2dhgCI Tonight’s post made me chuckle. :-) Brian
Being that space is at a premium – I have to move ‘this’ to do ‘that’ – I decided to add shelf/drawers for storage under the bench. I’ve been slowly progressing – until I discovered the biscuit joiner! I now have the carcass assembled and oiled! Here’s the oiled carcass: I checked for square as much as possible.

Hey guys and gals, Well today was a day to remember. First, off to the Dr. for yearly physical, (fun fun). Everything checked out ok. Then off to JockMike2’s shop,where I have a bowl in process on his lathe. I was there last week to start the bowl. Went today to work on it some more. Had a few checks that needed some serious filling. Then on to turning the inside of the bowl. When I left there today I walked out with my bowl in tow. It is a beautiful piece of maple with some spalting...
