Well week 6 is behind me and so am I on this project. Last night I glued up the boards for the top and cut the tenons in the aprons( the blue tape was a big hit even with the instructor). There was another event tonight but they did not appreciate all the noise that was coming out to the lobby. Too bad we kept going. When I put the rails and legs together I realised how ugly the 8/4 poplar was and that I could have easily designed something nicer in my own shop. So back to the drawing board...
I turned 62 today! Now I can get back some of what I payed in all these years. We don’t need the money right now, so MaMa said I could have the money to put in the shop. That is quite the birthday present! Thank You Dear!

Just updated my 12 n 12 challange status with information on Marc Adams version of the Maloof side table. Check it out at Project Artistry.
I finally got started on the Townsend dresser. First I have to say that I don’t know the actual mesurements for this project and I’ve never actually seen one in person. I did have someone give me approximate measurements a few years ago but I lost those too. So I’m working from a couple a photos in some books I have.After I planed and edge glued some material the first step was cutting thru dove tails on the sides and bottom boards. I had to remove some materal from the tail...
A journey into the workshop. #16: Being there for one of my best friends... I NEED TO VENT. NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED!!!
I sat in my shop, more or less leaning on the bench, kind of staring at the mess, and the equipment, not really getting anything done… I had just gotten off the phone with one of my best friends from high school. The guy that was the best man at my wedding, and has been there for me through thick and thin… And I’d like to think I have been likewise… But the news last night was a bit much to take. I am pretty sure I sounded like a fool on the phone, but what can you ...
Tomorrow the Woodworking Show will open over at the Big Town Exhibition Hall in Mesquite, TX. Since I have the day off, I’m going to spend most of it there. I plan on doing a little write up on it with photos (if they let me take my camera in there). One of the things I really like about the Woodworking Shows are the classes they give. I’m looking forward to seeing the one hour “Hand Tool Rodeo” class where they’ll be going the use and maintenance of the di...
My dreams are slowly coming true as I am starting to get a lot of work and prospects. Surprisingly, I’ve got a custom furniture job as well. This week I finished up the vinyl siding on the room addition I’ve been working on. This coming week I will be finishing the fascia board, doing the plumbing for the bathroom, and insulation. It isn’t custom cabinetry or furniture but it has certainly opened some doors… Thursday evening I went across the highway to scope out...
I am planning on buiding a king size bed (Mission style) and would appreciate any leads you may have to any plans for this. Thanks- Gibbey
