Company is coming over today so not much going on in the shop. So I figured I’d quickly post pictures of my shop. I had to clean it up some since one of the guests is the guy who got me into woodworking in the first place and I want to present a good impression. Of course he’ll still remember my box of cordless Ryobi tools and BTS-20 portable table saw which I used on a 10’ x 8’ covered porch in Hawaii, so this should stand out a bit above that! Also, here is som...
i had a compund miter saw that i never used, coz it was in the corner, and i couldn’t et to it. i had a pegboard that i coudn’t reach.i had wood cut-off storage all over the place.my RAS and big table saw were at right angles to each other, and i like that. sort of like command central.i needed more wall storage; when i installed the RAS, i put up pegs for blades—wrong. after a half-dozen drawings and estimates of materials and countless trips to HD, for pricing, i fina...
I figured it was time to start another new blog. We’ve got friends that are getting married, and we wanted to give them something special. I figure the best gift you can give is one you want for yourself, so I’m going to make two while I’m at it. We originally thought about a mirror, but realized shipping it would be problematic. Then I thought about the clock project that had been bouncing around in the back of my head. After my usual extensive research, this is the de...
This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches. A tree crotch is where two branches come together. It is usually the piece that fire wood people don’t want because it doesn’t slit. That is because the crotch is the hardest part of the tree and the grain in going in different directions. It’s where you get what is called “feather”. “Haring bone, r...
Hey Guys and Gals, Well tomorrow is the big LJ get together in Michigan. I am sooo looking forward to it. I have built two new projects to show off. and have a design dilema for the guys to help me with. The better half and I can’t wait to meet everyone and tour the saw mill. She told me that I could go out and get some wood yesterday, but I told her that I am waiting for Sunday to get my wood. (she wasn’t thinking). So I also have some plans that I bought that are extras so if...
I’ve been having problems with my video feed lately. I keep breaking by good cameras (shop not a good environment). Then I crashed my computer. After waiting almost 2 weeks for a recovery disk. I think I have things going again. I also replace one of the camera. For building pictures and recorded video see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. See what we are doing live: <div></div>
I’ve been so fantastically lazy these past 3 weeks of pseudo-laid-off time. I wanted to use this unexpected break to go nuts in the garage, as it’s what I’ve dreamed of for more than a year now, but I think the anticipation of hard times ahead, and light anxiety of not having a steady income at the moment (first time in 6 years – since shortly after moving to CA) has sapped my motivation almost entirely. I’ve done almost nothing but wait. I’ve had some thin...

I have always used my assembly table as a work bench but after recently acquiring a truck load of hard maple from a local farmer the first thing I decided to build was a new woodworking bench. I’m using the plans from a recent issue of Woodsmith Magazine. The first picture is half the top, a mix of hard maple and cherry. the other half is standing in the background. The base is also hard maple glued up from 4/4 stock As it’s supposed to rain all weekend I hope to be ab...
