I just changed my shop around a bunch. I took out a table that took up too much room and chopped it into pieces and made a table for the drill press. Added a shelf and made a drawer for it. Worked out very nice. I used a locking rabbet joint to make the drawer which was a good test for my new Dado set. Nice clean cuts, I’m impressed. I also added a picture of the bandsaw I picked up earlier this summer. What a steal, $150 and it works like a top. Delta 14” with the riser...
After putting my banjo project on display, I have received a number of comments running the gamut from complimenting the wood used to alluding to banjo player jokes. It seems as though there is a significant number of us that would like to build musical instruments, but are too intimidated or feel perhaps they are not musical enough to succeed. I really want to encourage you, if you are thinking about doing something like this, to give it a try. Go ahead and buy one of the many great ̶...
Art-Full Wood Rats ....and so today i am going straight for the soul of the word and writing as one can when they are expelling multi-words ‘off the cuff’ of their heart…. Yes, there are times more often then not, when I will write and milk the word to get at the heart of it’s meaning and then while sitting here waiting for a heady froth, I will go for a twist in the meaning to see if I can get outside the box and examine the art-full word in a new way of meaning...
hello everyone, I am new to woodworking. I am building a table, one like I saw in apple store.after a month of long struggle I finally got to the finishing stage.I am not a big fan of oil polyurethane because of its shine and non-woody feel of it.but I thought I might make it work if I applied very thin layer.and wiped it with cloth instead of brush. well. it didn’t work out very well. not happy with the outcome. shinny and plasticky does anyone know how to get that effect of f...
”Exogens of All That Is” ....as i am sitting here thinking of all my genetic dna’s in this game of global pursuit, as i am being rounded and roughly gouged by the hewing hand of this one greater then i, that one who holds the well oiled broadaxe….., greater then i….?!?....and so i look to the hand from which i was hewn as this one is the giver of all life in this my moment of now…. —-if i was to say to you my dearest remembered hardwood,or where...

I’am currently working on a small router table stand for my router table to sit on as i have a small router table and want to bring it up to around waist height , it is being made from MDF and i have seen MDF sealers should I use this to seal the MDF or should I use varnish I will post some pictures up on my page in the upcoming days
A few modifications have been made to the project. The plan is laid out. So we started off by cutting the side panels for the columns we’ve added. I know you didn’t see columns in the pictures from before but that is the main addition besides lengthening the lower cabinet to accommodate for more table space. The panels are cut and everything is as square as possible. Most of the wood was delivered bent so we’ll have to do some fidgeting a little later. Ok we’ve also us...
I know this is going to sound like a complete “Duh!” moment, but I personally find it so interesting how there are so many different ways to get a job done for certain people. I guess the interesting part for me is how I find people use the tools they have. For example, for someone, an oscillating spindle sander might be their most used tool, but if I had one, it might get used once in a decade. Depending on the type of work you do, how often you do it, etc can dictate your sho...
