Well i got the island out of the shop and into the kitchen today. Now i need to order hardware( hinges) for 1 door. and re finish where i had to shave drawer fronts to make them fit.

Here is a picture of the pine island top that i got input from folks here about how to join the boards i went with Biscuits, glue, and pocket screws then screwed to a 3/4” piece of plywood.!And 1 mor...
Its hard to believe that this is my 26th weekly post and that it is therefore half way through the entire year of 2011. I am enjoying these posts and they do help to encourage me to get into the shop each week in order to do a little bit of something. I look forward trying more new things with each project. As to what I did this week, we went to spend a few days with my wife’s family and they all seem to like a good puzzle. So after I got done packing on Friday I took a little time in the...

Hi Everyone, We’ve made stops and Karson’s and SteveN’s place and got some great stuff added to the box. We’ve got a couple of challenges going on now – let’s see what we can do. The box is on it’s way to Florida now to spend some time with brewtang. Here’s the latest map… Now here’s another challenge for those that participated in Round 2… let’s see some pens! We had some great materials come around in that...
I’m sure Martin has logged off for the night but will take care of this first thing in the morning…. please ignore the postings. Thanks.
My father, another avid woodworker, has told me on many occasions: The mark of a craftsman isn’t NOT making mistakes, it’s all about the skill in hiding them. Or something like that. So now that I have my panels dryfitted I started patting myself on the back. Great job, Blue! Look at how the panels fit into the grooves nicely, mate up with the grooves in the rails so neatly and the even have space to float slightly. See..I can move them back and forth slightly so that humidi...

I’ve got a few days off for the holidays, and i’ve been able to get a little more work done on my desk project. I’ve been trying to figure out what type and color wood I want for the inlays and accent pieces. After talking with the guys at the local woodcraft, I picked up some trans tint 0 black dye, a chunk of walnut and some walnut veneers. I played around with these (and after dying my hand black, be careful with this stuff), but did not like the pitch black look. A f...
This morning I find that I’m avoiding the trip down to the wood shop. What lies behind this procrastination, I ask myself. Could it be that I am on the verge of tackling a new level of skill but do not yet know what that might be? Or perhaps it is that the little projects that I have started are not meeting my expectations and a little self-doubt has slipped into my being? The motivation behind inaction might also lie in still waiting for the image of that summer contest project, so...
