CREATIVITY, INOVATION, RESOURCEFULNESS, These are the words of mouth from those who saw my multiple drawer. I made this after collecting toner drum catridges from a copier. I have seen the possibility of recycling it to a drawer because of the linearity of the protruding guide slide. This is definitely a difficult situation of making a groove precisely cut in between division panels. I used 3/4 plywood which is also scrap pieces. Another challenge was to utilize the top and the bottom ...
Hello All, The feeling of the hand plane in my mits was a joy. My results were sub par, but I felt some joy. It is good to be home. http://su.pr/2NHVZW Brian

Dewitt Memorial Building315 W Washington StDewitt, MI 48820 I read “Wood trade” would that make this a swap meet? I am reposting KJuly’s response to bring it back tothe fore front.

I don’t think there ARE many … universal truths. But … in woodworking … I’m absolutely convinced that there is AT LEAST one: YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY CLAMPS ;-) It’s glue-up day, folks…....
A few weeks ago I posted pictures of a keepsake trunk I built and several people wanted to know how I made the top and bent the wood for the straps. This is the start of another trunk for my wife.I give credit to American Woodworker Mag and Garrett Glaser for the design and plans. I did not follow them exactly but I feel the results are the same. I used a different box joint (Incra) and I bent the wood different than the article explained. I’ll follow that part with pictures later. ...
“If you do not expect it, you will not find the unexpected, for it is hard to find and difficult.” ...Heraclitus 500 B.C. This woodworking online episode is part of the Let's Build Series Woodworking Tips and Techniques:1.) Creating a foxtail wedged tenon joint. We continue with Part 6 of our arts and crafts wood project, the making of a Koa wood veneered jewelry box. We begin by finding the center on the wooden box lid. To do this we use a straight edge to mark diagon...
The first task I decided to tackle is the cabinet legs. If I cannot get the legs right, all bets are off. They look deceivingly simple in the design picture, but having the cabinet float above the legs, as well as my attempt to make the legs from 8/4 stock complicates things a bit. Nothing that a jig cannot solve, right?
In response to Hank Gilpin’s advice on my Jewelry Armoire in the October 2010 issue of Fine Woodworking, I decided to, instead of fixing the Jewelry Armoire, to design a new cabinet that implements Hank’s suggestions. This “Asian Cabinet”, as I am tentatively calling it, is smaller and more slender than the Jewelry Armoire. I also do not plan on keeping this piece, but instead selling it when I am finished, so if there are any potential buyers out there…. I ...
Well I got an HVLP sprayer from Harbor Freight. Kicking myself in the butt cause I havent gotten one sooner…several weeks of work, in several hours…sheesh… anyway here are some pics for you….. Right now I am spraying dewaxed shellac. I am trying to decide whether I will need to topcoat with poly or not…
The octagonal table project is making some progress! I have now successfully routed the leg(not totally satisfied). I was encountering some problems during the pattern routing of the legs as I described in my last 2 blogs: http://lumberjocks.com/lanwater/blog/18200 and http://lumberjocks.com/lanwater/blog/18452 Some of you have seen the problems I was having and gave advise that were very valuable.
