The build has begun!!Today I milled up some curly maple and walnut for the saw till and I was able to shoot a little video of the construction. I am not sure if I will save it up and make a montage of the whole build or break it down piece by piece. I want to save up until I have enough video to make it worth the watch so we will just have to see how much is accumulated with each build. The till is going to be about 40” tall and 14” wide. It will have a drawer on the bottom for th...
Hi everyone and Happy Thanksgiving! I am looking for a little bit of help. I just picked up a Powermatic model 100 planer off of CL. What I would like to know is how the heck to I remove the cutter head? I am looking at putting a byrd in. I cant quite find enough info on line to remove the cutter head and its not a project I will try to do with no info. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
A long time ago, a group of extraordinarily courageous people boarded a couple of very small ships, Mayflower and Speedwell, and headed off across the Atlantic to make a better life for themselves. Very few of them survived the voyage. But what they started, when they made landfall near a place called Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts, became, after much trial and error, much anguish and hardship, The United States of America. They never knew that. I don’t know whether they had any idea that...
FINALLY! Some real woodworking. Wood is like Bubba’s shrimp. You can steam it, bend it, carve it, laminate it, or pattern cut it and glue it together. And that’s the approach I took. Make a pattern, rough cut to size, rout to the pattern for matching parts, glue them together, and viola. You’ve got the makings of a curved drawer front. Here’s a few tips and lessons learned. Spend a lot of time up front perfecting the pattern. After rough cutting, sand the ro...
Young woodworker here looking for some advice. I’m working on a 34” x 34” frame for squeegeeing film photographs after they have been developed in a darkroom. The design is fairly simple I’m using 5/4 white oak for the frame connected with finger joints and then cutting a dado in the middle of the pieces to allow for a piece of plywood and plexiglass to rest in. This will be inside a school and will be exposed (not submerged) to water for about half of the year. I am making this to replace a ...
Okay so this is more of rant than a blog, but I need to get something off my chest before I explode, so excuse my being blunt. I’m pretty sure many of you have come across “primitive wooden projects” being sold at craft fairs etcetera. I my self in my area run into this every where. My problem with this I don’t consider these pieces to be primitive, I do consider them to be nothing more than piss poor excuse of craftsmanship. from the knicks in the wood you were to laz...

I decided to start my Christmas projects early this year. First project is a wall plaque for my youngest son who is a PA (Physician Assistant) at OSS (Occupational Spine Specialist) here. All I had to start was a pin he gave me a couple years ago. After a few pictures and about an hour with MS Publisher (didn’t need Adobe Illustrator with this one) the design was ready. Because the smallest lettering was on 5/8 tall by 1/8 thick, I used a #3 spiral blade and crossed my fingers. Alas, us...
