I managed to land some commissions this week so when i was cutting some material the outfeed drop leaf table on my radial saw decided to give up the ghost. the osb sheeting on my drop leaf desintegrated where the piano hinge mounts. time for an upgrade! the new ones will be laminated plywood cores with cut down 2×3s framing the edges so that the hinges have solid wood to screw into and the frames will hold the weight instead of the plywood. this will all be topped with some white 1/8...

My garage is getting pretty tight now, the pantry will probably be out of there soon though didn’t do a blog on it but will probably post it in completed projects pretty soon, I have to cut some granite and then I can install it. ...
Weekend Warrior Woodworking Magazine #9: Wooden Boat Festival but More Importantly the Tool Vendor Area!
Had some fun today at the Lie-Nielsen both during the Wooden Boat Festival, read about it here.
The past few weeks, I have really lived up to my name "Scrollgirl". It seems I have spent more time than ever at the scroll saw. But that is a good thing, right? It goes to show me that it may very well be possible to be able to design both woodworking and painting patterns and keep things in balance. It helps tremendously having a partner like Keith. He is so talented and when I meander over to the painting side of things for a while, he is always busy keeping our scroll...
One of the greatest influences in my life was my Dad. I mention him in this blog, because I started thinking about him again as I often do in relation to woodworking. My Father was a woodworking enthusiast just like me. But since I came to this after he died, I never had the chance to discuss woodworking as one enthusiast to another, the way TimberJocks do. I often question in my mind, “I wonder what Dad would think of this or that piece?” Or wish I could ask him how he would d...
First, I did add pictures to my earlier, background blog. Well, I did not master sketch-up, but I did get it to show the way I plan to start my storage wall. So, the plan is to attach the OSB to a 2×4, back-up the OSB with a sheet of vapor barrier foam with some type of construction adhesive, and then attach the 2×4 to the floor joists. The block wall this will be against is bowed and I am not sure how best to locate the placement of the 2×4s on the underside of the ...
This episode shows in detail the procedures to make Through dovetails on the Leigh D4R jig. The steps are very simple: 1. Arrange the guide pin spacing2. Route the tails using a suitable dovetail router bit3. Route the pins using the matching straight router bit The variable pin spacing makes the D4R a very versatile dovetail jig, allowing an infinite arrangement of dovetail spacing. In addition, this capability also allows setting half pins near the edge of the boards, which I find ...
Phase one ended with the 4 upright post positioned for the pergola. And while the first 3 phases came together within a months’ time; phase 4 had a full years delay. I bought the cypress boards shortly after we were done with phase 3, but somehow I never got around to getting the work done. So one year later… I was glad to see the post stayed upright and except for a little twisting were good to go. It’s tough to store 2×10x12 cypress, so for 9 months they just laid on saw horse ou...
