I saved the design and building of the handles for last. Mainly, because I had no Idea what I was going to do for a handle. All I knew, was I wanted it to be made from wood. I searched through all my design books, and all over the web looking for inspiration. I finally came across Darrell Peart’s website in the Green and Green Style. Now this desk is not in the Green and Green style but I liked the simplicity of the handles on his pieces and thought they would work well with my desk. As al...
My closest friend Has a 15year old son who has been working for him for the last summer and has bought himself a lathe and has been putting out some nice projects. I thought I would offer him a project to make a new handle for an old timber slick I’ve had for years and in return I would trade his work for a plane out of my collection. I would have just given him one of his choosing with no strings but, I thought I would play this handle project out to watch his interest and follow thr...

Thanks all, I am gearing up for the next surgery (Tues Mar 5th). The gearing up will include some time spent in the shop this weekend, as I am cleared for physical activity until after the surgery. I am also doing the usual house cleaning, catching up on paper work, grocery shopping and having my 3 year old grandson for a sleepover. I’m getting good at this now with this being my 5th surgery since Sept 12. In the shop, I have been working on some shelves to go in between the bracke...
I have recently aquired a Kreg jr and believe I must be using it incorrectly. Although it seems very easy to work, I am not getting the expected results. The Pockets that I am creating are very shallow. I have tried to install the Kreg screws and the head stick out. It seems like the angle is not big enough, has anyone had this problem and/or does anyone have a solution? ThanksJoe
I’d like to react to tiny issue that happened between Dick and Cabinetman yesterday. (Now I see that you explained it together here. I’m happy for that – thanks!) Coffee Lounge is here for off-topic discussions – as the description states ”Need a break from all the standing and wood dust?”. So there is nothing wrong with posting something that is not 100% woodworking related there. Just don’t overdo it, please ;) On the other hand, it’d be...
Hi, Folks,Heartiest o’ greetings from sunny Castle Rock, Colorado! After lurking around LumberJocks for awhile, I decided to take the big plunge and join up. That happened this morning. Then I thought, “Why not start a blog?” It doesn’t look that hard. Lotsa other people do it! Being a woodworkermusiciangardenerstampcollectorcoincollectrocartoonistelectronicsgeek I figure I should have something useful to write about. A little background: I am a Colorado Spri...
Here are just a few shots of the garage after I finished sanding all of the walls. Something I thought I would never finish. Once you start doing it and realize how tiring it is, you think it will never end. Perseverance is the key. Just keep your head down, don’t look up and keep on sanding. I have some gaps in places but that no longer matters to me. I never planned for this to be a ‘home interior’ drywall job. That would have been great but when all is said and ...
This weekend was the Indianapolis stop of “The Woodworking Shows” series, and I couldn’t pass it up. As usual, there were a bunch of seminars, a bunch of vendors doing demos, and a bunch of random junk. After getting through the junk (where I picked up a few triangular files for sharpening hand saws) and trying to sit through a few seminars geared towards people who were clearly not me, I spent a bit of time at the Lee Valley booth playing with some of the planes that have...
Hello LumberJocks. I just wanted to share a giveaway that I’m having in February. I have been fortunate enough to have room in this month’s budget to allow me to give back to all of those who have showed their support for me. In February I am giving away a new Kreg Jig K4. If you would like all the info here is the link. http://jayscustomcreations.com/february-2014-giveaway/
