There’s a new post available on the Little Good Pieces blog: “Wing Chun Dummy – Square Holes”. I fill in defects in the dummy body and finish it. Check it out! http://littlegoodpieces.wordpress.com/2010/11/22/wing-chun-dummy-body-shaping/
The post office delivered a wonderful gift today. It had traveled roughly 4000 miles or 7000KM to get here from what looks to be a wonderful island in Denmark. My LumberFriend DennisGrosen had sent me a package. The box contained an incredibly well wrapped package, a very thoughtfully written and heart warming Christmas card from Dennis and his family, and a load of packing puffs that my son had a good time with.Thankfully they kept him busy, which gave me time unwrap all the protec...
Well I finally pulled the trigger. I noticed that I was falling into the rut that I do with my code, always waiting to release until its just right…well it never gets there, you have to pull the trigger not look back and fix the little things you miss as you move forward…. So anyway with the help of a friend I was able to get the tall cabinets upstairs. I have the back on one unit and it survived the move, my wife wanted me to get the other one moved up too while I had help...

Start building Reed’s Murphy bed For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:
It was brought to my attention that my router table/outfeed might pose a problem when it came to obtaining a full 45 degree tilt with myTS. To overcome this I had to create a recess in the underside of the outfeed portion. This is what it looks like currently. Yuck! I must honestly say that I didn’t even think about how the table top would create interference with the saws ability to tilt at 45 degrees. Perhaps at some point in the future I’ll remove the top and clean up th...
I spent most of the day yesterday playing around with video stuff and reading about it. Usually Sunday is my painting day and with Christmas only a few weeks away I probably should have been working on my gifts, but I couldn’t help but explore this new ‘toy’ that I have discovered. I like the Windows Movie Maker software. (Now don’t start throwing rotten tomatoes at me! – I know anyone who says they like anything Windows puts out is instantly labeled “...
Proportional Dividers - Golden Section and Generalized #2: Proportional Divider (4 arms) - General Equation
Ok, while I’m messing with the Golden Ratio and mathematics, I thought I’d also try to figure out how to make a simple cross beam proportional divider. It’s been a while since High School Geometry, so I had to go back and reprove the relationships between proportional isosceles triangles to myself. I also couldn’t find this specific formula for making a divider anywhere on the net in a reasonable amount of time, so I just re-derived it. (I believe this is all correc...
The wood shaped to the line. If you check back a few posts there were two lines. My ‘final’ line is what you see remaining. Here’s a jig I made to cut the edges to size. Does anyone see what ‘the problem’ is in this picture? Think hard… It’s a 1hp Craftsman router with a 3/8” straight bit. I call it a ‘face off’ bit, but I could be wrong? The jig part is the device holding the router steady. It’s 1/8” alu...
Good Morning LJ’s, this week has been kinda slow but productive, the slowness comes from me having another accident on my job :( I slipped and fell hard twisting my knee so I been slowed up by this affliction but I was able to get my templates for my chairs redone out of 1/2” MDF, and one of my chairs finished, after readjusting my jig to accommodate the thicker lumber This is about all I got accomplished this week not much but I feel guilty if I don’t post something this w...
So you think you can go pro ? :) #2: Until you spread your wings (only then you know how far you can walk )
Good evening LJ’s,The smell of sawdust is in your nose, coffee aroma smells the air, those baked pies sure look good, your sure people are going to buy because it’s you right ? Wrong these days people have options (cheap ones to boot) to the small business- You have to sell yourself to people to prove how you can give them value.What’s in it for me? attitudes come along from most want cheap, fast, and easy greasy lemon pleasey thank you but no thank you types frustrate all ...
