I’ve been living in the natural world of Rivers Inlet, British Columbia my whole life and I’ve never found anything that astounded me more than this. As a beachcomber, when I find a slide it’s a perfect treasure for me to sift through but what I found the day I came across this slide, completely blew my mind. At first sight, the log was a beautiful old growth red cedar – already a gem in itself. But once I started milling, the unique treasure I discovered within ...
Overview I’ve enjoyed using the layout boat for fishing, but duck season is only a month away and it’s time to finish the final stages of making this boat “disappear” from wary ducks in the marsh. That involves fabricating flip blind doors, a dog blind, and brushing out the entire boat. Fabricating the flip blind door frames requires head brackets, foot brackets, and tubular framing. Head Brackets Both aluminum crossbars attach to brackets screwed to the...
“Girls and Typing,” and “The Wee Little Craftsman Style Kid’s Desk”; Seeing the Timelessness of Gustav’s Vision. (M.D. DeCou copywrite 1-16-2007) I got worried about using someone’s name without asking permission. So from now on, I will try to use “fake” names to represent the innocent, and in this story, the 50% guilty. The actual names are not essential to enjoying my old antics and consequences. Girls & Typing:Well, yesterday I got sort of carried away with th...

I didn’t have much time in the shop this weekend. We’re getting ready for our Passover seder and my college softball team had a double header today, and I couldn’t resist spending a little time in the sun. In the shop I worked on the sizing the strips which will hold the panels in the doors of the wall cabinet (see project posting). The doors have a rabbet that runs around the inside of the door to hold the panel. To hold the panel from the back I’m using strips...
So, now I have posted most of the things that I have built, and will start blogging about projects and that kind of thing. Currently I am finishing up the school year at the High School that I teach at in Santa Rosa CA. This is my first year as a Student Government teacher and I am just now realizing that the end of the school year is the busiest part of the year for that position with all sorts of things going on, mainly a trip to Disneyland for 255 of the graduating seniors in two weeks, ...

I have not been online much lately, but not for lack of desire. I have been spending time building a potting table for a customer. Even with that, I still have had a few minutes to look online. The main problem has been the lack of DSL connection. Last Monday, my DSL modem decided to give up the ghost. I called AT&T, and after diagnosing the modem, determined it was dead. I ordered a new modem, which was supposed to be here in 48 hours. Alas, I should have known, that was to opti...
Woodworkers are changing their spots. We just don’t want to make things and toss the waste away. Nor do we want others to waste the resources it took so long to grow. Here’s a couple of examples and a few ideas. I rose from my chair and cheered something I saw in high definition the other night…a pair of New York designers, woodworkers who are creating furniture from scrap wood…called Scrapile. If you’re looking for ideas…or ways to use your scrap...
