I am using Holly strips that I sized 1/4” wide by 1/8” thick I use CA glue and tap them in place. Once the glue has set up I use a small flex-blade saw to trim the ends flush with the miters. I use a sanding block to sand the strips flush with th...
With the publication of my article entitled “It’s a Secret” (click here to read the article online) in the November issue of Popular Woodworking, I started getting lots of email with comments and questions about the subject. Evidently so did the magazine because they started forwarding the emails to me. All had a common theme…”we want more!”. Well, last week I started a series of posts on my blog that will add to the article. This series is going to be o...

The Northern California Woodworking show starts in less than 72 hours (three days), at the Sacramento Convention Center, downtown Sacramento. And the Lumberjocks will have a booth, compliments of the Woodworking Shows, Inc. A number of area LumberJocks have agreed to set in the booth for an hour or two on each of the three days. To all of those who have replied and said they will be in the booth, I have sent tickets. The tickets went out via snail-mail yesterday. I am looking forward t...
I finally got around to finishing the Sketchup drawing for my first fine woodworking project that I hope to start before the holidays. I had difficulty designing the sides and back and I’m still not sure if I like the grooved panels. I may go back to just a basic panel or raised. The shelf above the bottom drawer was also a pain, but that could just be because I was a newbie to Sketchup. Please let me know if there is a better, or easier way to build a shelf that sits like that. ...
A trip to the Boeing Museum of Flight After seeing the movie about Amelia Earhart and a book report project for our granddaughter we had a perfect opportunity to visit the Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle. If you are not from the area and should ever happen to visit, I highly recommend it weather you are a history buff, airplane nut or a woodworking jock, looking to see some extraordinary displays. Their web site is here and is equally as good as the museum. They do an outstanding job of...
