Apparently, my dear old Mom is more impatient than I am! Why do I say this? Simple. We both happen to be off today, and she announces to me this morning that she’d like for us to go a pick up the Poplar for her bookcase this morning. I figured it makes a certain amount of sense, considering the wood needs to dry out a bit before being worked, despite coming from Lowe’s. There was just one little problem with this…I hadn’t designed it yet! So, this will be inter...
Dad passed several years ago now but left me a box he had made when a kid and gave to his mom. It is in disrepair with glue joints failing (@ 50 years old). Memory not serving well regarding the top including or not including a lip. However the top is hinged and hinges recessed. The wood retains a bit of shine on 80% of the exterior, interior has no shine. The box measures @6 inches across front, @4 inches to back and @3 inches tall. The grain is red to brown, not sure if it’s mahogany....
I used to be primarily a lurker in online communities, lately i’ve gotten away from that, so here’s an intro. My name I Jarod, i’m 36 years old, living in Austin, TX. I grew up in central Illinois.

I got an e-mail message from a web site called LumberBoss. A member on LumberBoss has some air dried cherry about 10.000 BD Ft for $2.00 a BD FT. No minimum. He is north of Lynchburg VA. Contact me if you need a phone number.
Being the only driver in the house, I am the one who gets the joy of hauling a trailer load of rubbish to the local tip. I had backed up the trailer to the hopper (who said a woman cant reverse a trailer????) and a young (mid 20s) man was unloading his rubbish into the hopper from his boot (trunk) of his car. I was chatting to him whilst I spaded the junk into the hopper. He was clearing out his granddads shed who had just gone into a nursing home. He was about to throw a box of stuff i...

So this is your teaser check back in a week and hopfully we will have images and stories for you viewing pleasure!!! Cheers!
From my blog: This one is for Betsy, at Lumberjocks.com. Betsy has had trouble cutting to the line when hand-cutting dovetails. Therefore, she would like to improve the fit, by making sure to better cut to the line. I promised I would try to document how I do it. I found that using either the index finger fingernail, or the thumb fingernail, to create a “fence” for the saw, works best for me. Threrefore, I first place the fingernail exactly on the line, and then I place the saw on th...
From my blog: In this video episode Christopher Schwarz, Editor of Popular Woodworking and Woodworking Magazine, presents, discusses, and points out pros and cons of several benches and their features: 1. The European bench: He is not happy with this form, but also is not anti-European-form. His problem with this one: People take old principles and apply them to other benches. He likes to apply the kitchen door test (typical sizes we work on) and the kitchen carcase test (pushes him to na...
I am in the just beginning stage of making my workshop….after many years of wandering the non-woodworking world. Yes, I have come to my senses, and am coming home. I decided to start doing my projects, with wood saved from the brink of certain destruction. In the area where I live, there are many many orchards…...walnut, almond, peach, cherry, apricot etc, etc. A regular smorges’board’ of woods and root buroughs. And this is the time of pruning, for next year. ...
