This dirty, heavy unidentified board had been kicking around for some years.. ..imagine my delight when I ran a plane over it and found this lovely lacewood: I scaled up from a photograph of a Moog lap steel. Imitation is, after all the sincerest from of flattery! Bandsawn to rough shape and tidied up on the bobbin sander. Rough planed to 1.5” and sanded through the trusty shop-made thicknesser: Routed out for wenge inlays: Inlays glued in and ...

Grip-N-Rip – Most Favored Item on LumberjocksFREE PLANS!!! Grip-N-Rip LINK Now with over 200,000 views and almost 500 favors…
Can you be addicted to woodworking? At this point I am finding more solutions than problems, partially thanks to lumberjocks. The work is challenging enough to keep me striving to achieve the illusive gold standard, pro-status, tradesman vice hobbyist. Still, I have no idea what accurate to one thousandth of an inch looks like. My tools and equipment are tuned well (hysterical laughing) and my technique is almost good enough to put flaws in the barely perceptible range. That range...

The warm summer days are definitely behind us. I sit her this morning writing with a cat at my side and another on my lap, enjoying the warmth of the blanket I am tucked under. It’s cool in here today, but that is just how I like it. Somehow it makes the coffee taste even better. I truly enjoy the autumn. I wish it would last forever. But then, as with anything I think that I may begin to take it for granted. We all tend to do that. We become so familiar with things around us th...
Well, a few more days have gone by, do I thought I’d post another entry here. Last time, I mentioned the dollhouse kit that I need to build for my daughter. It’s a nice little kit, but it comes with some very thin plywood that tears out every so easily when punching it out of it’s frame… I’ve spent much time popping out the pieces and sanding the edges. My wife bought some paint in the colors that we determined my daughter likes, but we still haven’...
Well, I must say this has been a learning experience. Unfortunately I had to make a mistake to learn from it. From now on I will never attempt a project without having the hardware ahead of time. Not a big deal sometimes, but on a crib, it turned out to be a big deal. I designed my crib myself, and halfway through building it, decided to change hardware types. Of course, the legs were already cut for the original idea. Last night I started planning down some more Walnut to make two new ...

Yesterday was one of those days when ‘unexpected’ things came up and plans changed. This was for the good though, as we wound up having some nice company for the day (Keith’s mom and auntie Dorothy) and we shared an afternoon and dinner. I love visiting with them and so do the kitty cats. They provide a wealth of entertainment and are fun and very social when people they like come over. I think it is just as exciting for them as it is for us! As a result, my drawing and...
