We have been working real hard trying to get ready for the craft show coming up on Friday. I made a bunch of signs and Terry made benches to take but today he called me at work and said that we were not going to have anything left to take to the show. He sold 3 signs, a table and 4 benches already this week. I only have 2 days left to try and catch up. Maybe I’ll just have to take orders like I did last time but I was trying to have a good selection of different signs to choose from. I ...
I’ve been tossing a bunch of ideas around for a stand for my planer. Even bought a plan for a flip-top cart to hold the planer and a sander I will eventually purchase. I decided not to build that and go with something small and functional that will fit under my table saw. After taking some rough measurements, and drawing a little sketch on napkin, I headed to HD to grab a sheet of maple ply. I knew I wanted it about 11” high. Then with 3.5” castors and the 20” pl...
Being pretty new at woodworking everything is new to me. I’ve been watching all sort of videos on google sketchup and I’m so impressed by the program, it’s very powerful. However, here at work I am not allowed to download it onto my computer so I’ve been messing around with an alternative. MS paint!!! it’s pretty funny, but it allowed me to design the liquor cabinet that I’m getting ready to start. I’m heading to Chile in less then 2 weeks to pl...
Today I bought 2 Bd.Ft. of lacewood for another lock. I also bought a small piece of bubinga for a inlay. I have never worked with lacewood or made a inlay before, so hopefully I will learn something new. I am hoping to photograph the lock as I make it. Today I finished the calf roping stand for my son. He picked it up before I could get a pic of it.
am I the only one getting that VERY annoying Alaway pop up in EVERY window ? not too many things will make me leave a site but this will. That’s odd, it didn’t show up here – YEA !
First off Thank you to William for all of his recent blogs on the segmented pens. I had taken a course on some of this about a year or so ago but really have not experimented with it much on my own until now. I decided to use one of my “Pen”dants as the experiment which I think have great potential to make them look a little more Jewelry-ish, so here is what I came up with for my first attempt. The wood is Paduak with a light colored veneer that I have had for quite a w...
Hi everyone, just a short blog to catch up with those who care. Moved into the new house back on June 19th and have been getting settled every since. For those of you who have moved before you know how long the settling takes. This is the first time I’ve moved my shop. With all the moving I’ve done in the past nothing was more frustrating that having my tools packed away. It’s amazing how even some you think are dedicated to woodworking get used for other things around ...
Tomorrow will mark my first lumberjock birthday so i wanted to extend my gratitude out to everyone that makes this a special place. I consider this website and all of you to be my mentor. If i hadn’t found this site i’m not sure if i would have had the opportunity to further my skills and knowledge in wood working. This place has also give me a great amount of confidence in trying new things because no matter how frustrating something is or how confused i might be i know i can ...
I know y’all want to see photos, you are just going to have to be patient for a couple more days… Today is going to be install day. In what free time I did have over the weekend, I took the opportunity to fill holes, prime and paint the wall that the library will be mounted on. Now mind you, I didn’t bother with sanding down the patches all that well. It IS a garage after all… and most of the patches will be hidden behind the library, but it’s done. Gone is the b...
