So been a long hot summer and really haven’t been in the shop much since June when I built a mantel. Yardwork, vacation, stuff, but mainly just not feeling it calling until the past couple of weeks the weather has started changing and I found myself wanting to get back into it. So building a new worktable with 2×6 dimensional lumber base and an ash top. Got a Delta T2 fence to mount on the table saw to replace the OEM one. Took up Woodcraft on their free shipping recent...
Here’s a little peak at my first real woodworking project: three matching cherry frames with walnut splines for my credentials. After four years at my current job I figured it was about time to personalize my office a bit. I started with a few boards of 4/4 rough cherry that I purchased from a small hardwood dealer in the area and some walnut cutoffs that he had lying around. After planing down the lumber I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t perfectly clear, but after w...
Is the anticipation from hoping there are big crowds or because it’s almost over? Although we haven’t had banner crowds, I am perfectly satisfied with how my week has gone. I will leave with a comfortable profit and will have learned even more about how to do this. Had to rearrange this morning due to shelf units leaving booth. A guy that does reclaimed lumber work shows with in the summer. He brought in stuff to fill the void. I haven’t talked him into joining LJ’s y...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1373: On The Road for a Couple of Days and another Site Update
Today's post will be somewhat quick! I wanted to let you all know that I won't be posting much for the next several days. Keith and I decided to take some time to explore beautiful Nova Scotia as well as Prince Edward Island. We haven't been away since October and last summer we missed taking our annual exploration trip so we felt like now was the best time to go. I pretty much met all of my deadlines and while there is still stuff that I want to do, there will ALWAYS be thi...
Last fall I picked up an RBI 220 for a song ($75, really) but it needed about $80 in parts… no big deal. finally got around to playing with it at bit. I’ve got no real experience with Scroll Saws, so I got a copy of Nelson’s “Scroll Saw Workbook” and started working through it… I’m certianly no expert, but I AM getting better (I think…). Project two is a simple cat, and I 10 year old likes it!!! She thinks that its “cool” ...

I have been involved in the lengthy process of doing the finish carpentry of a new house we had built in the vacation land of Minnesota. It was built on land we purchased many years ago and have now retired to. The most challenging part up until now has been the windows. There are twenty three in all and I am finishing them in the old craftsman , arts and crafts style of the early 20th century. So far I have completed 15 of the 23 windows and have gained a great deal of experience in the proc...

I’ve always wanted to make things for children. I finally have a toddler to make something for in the family. My nephews came along before I was really into woodworking for fun. So now a small niece is in the picture. This is what I’m making her for Christmas. http://www.meiselwoodhobby.com/Products/ViewProduct.aspx?id=42983 It looks like a real fun project. They have a little weiner dog so hopefully she’ll like this. I didn’t get much done today – but i...
