Just wanted to congratulate Jordan for being featured in the current Highlander e-magazine. That beautiful war shirt certainly displays some of his spectacular talent. For those who do not get the Highlander emails – here is a link to the article – Jordan's war shirt carving. Great to see some of your fantastic carvings getting more exposure….it should certainly lead to more commissions as more realize what exquisite work you do.

Had a little time today and thanks to the Kreg jig, made a lot of progress, relatively speaking. First up, I used the coping saw to make a duplicate shelf for the upper stage. Then I cut out a rectangular shelf for the very top and sanded everything smooth and to the correct size for a snug fit. Out came the Kreg and in a few minutes I had pocket holes drilled for all the shelves, glue applied and screwed in place. Once clamps were applied to the sides, I came back and drilled pilot h...
Hello! I stumbled upon LumberJocks a week ago while looking for woodworking tips. Looks like a cool place to hang out. However, I was so busy finishing my Christmas gifts that I didn’t have a chance to introduce myself. I found myself amazed at how many folks submitted nice comments on my arrival to LJ. I started woodworking in 1998, but it took six years to finish the first project I started. I did finish a couple of others between though. For the last six years I’ve been c...
Hello All, The story of Claude was discovered with the help of Henry the tiny box. Henry is still hanging out here, until the post office opens on Tuesday. Then he will be off to his new home. I hope you enjoy the story. http://su.pr/2xzTeQ
The stain recipe is going on. So far, so good. I think I’ll like the way it turns out. And yes, it’s more work than most will think poplar is worth. That’s ok. HOWEVER: I got greedy, and I’m paying the price for it. I tried to pull the tape up with the stain still wet. In some places, it pulled the stain in a string onto the maple inlay. Not much, but some. So I stopped, will let the rest of the table set, and on the second one, I’ll just wait. Patien...
In the process of planning the Michigan Picnic coming up, my lovely wife thought that it would be great to have an Inernational lumberjock event. I agree, but just the logistics of the whole thing scares the hell out of me. Who would come, what to bring, where to have it and so on. I know I for one would go to it. Maybe someday we could pull it off. For now I am content with meeting with my fellow LJ’ers from Michigan. Well I guess I got that out. Back to getting myself ready for our pi...
So, in continuation of the drunken canoe series (wine cabinet/rack), here’s what I’ve accomplished up till now (Mon, Tue, Wed): I have a pretty small shop so in order to work with the long lumber on the band saw, I had to move it. Note the crude stand to get the saw table to the same hight as the other surfaces.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The cut using the band saw was way too wobbly with the 3/8” blade. I ordered a 3/4”...
I have sat down three times this weekend to write this blog entry. Each time something has come up and instead of just leaving the window open I closed it down and went to take care of other things. I just got done mowing the yard and I am presently trying to cool down and re-hydrate. This should be a good time to get this done. At least nothing but maybe dinner will interrupt it. I went out in the shop the other night to get a screwdriver and I started feeling the urge to get some woo...
cleaned up the base with a wire wheel and drill then washed it off, I am going to try to weld up the holes in the base this week
