I am finally able to get in the shop today. I went yesterday and picked up some screws that I needed for my PC router. (I lost the screws to the base plate) I ordered 2 sets(just in case). I spent some time yesterday edge jointing some smaller pieces for glue up. I found 3 pieces that I am taking with me to JockMike2’s tomorrow. I want to try turning something different. I am getting stock ready for a show in November. I am submitting the application on Friday to lock in my booth. The s...

I made some progress on the mortises but I hit a few road blocks, I been trying to cut a 3/4’’ mortise with 3/8’’ mortise chisel, I did it in two passes.
Hey all. Yesterday was a doubly eventful day for me as my ‘Snakes’ cutting board topped 1500 reads. At the same time the ‘Zee’ box topped 700 in 1day. I am staggered, especially when I remember my first thousand reader took 57 days!. I’m really, really happy with this but I must take a moment to thank all of you who take the time to look at and comment on my work. When I joined LJ’s I never expected anyone would be this interested in my ramblings. Thank you...

It feels really good this time to come down from such a hard push. It is funny, but it takes a while to gradually sink in that the urgency is no longer there. I wonder if it is chemical thing in our brains or something. I am sure adrenalin has something to do it. I spent yesterday glowing in the aftermath of the previous couple of weeks. Much of the morning I caught up on correspondence in between applying coats of finish to my kitchen table. Miraculously, none of the cats decided to ...
I built a large hardware storage cabinet to house an assortment of fine thread bolts.My friend builds custom cars in his shop.In order to secure these expensive nuts, bolts and washers, he hired me to build a cabinet to lock them up when he isn’t around. The assortment came with a large blue rack with a lot of bins for all the different fasteners.This rack is made in three parts that will slide right into my cabinet.If you’ve followed my blog, I built the Table saw island for the ...
I’ve had family in town since Friday, so work on the table has been put on hold for a few days. I did have time to test out Charles Neil’s Pre-Color Conditioner, which arrived on my doorstep Friday afternoon. This was a piece of poplar, with the normal streaks of light sapwood and darker brown areas (the corner facing the camera was pretty much very light in tone): You can click on the links to see a larger version of the pic (hosted from my home webserver, sorry if i...
Hello LJ’s, It has been pointed out, and rightfully so, that I am really descriptive in every aspect of my blog posts, except my methodology. This is true and tonight I decided to give a much more detailed account of how I glue up a tiny box with 45 degree angled joints. I have lots of pictures and of course, a silly introduction. Tragic Error in Communications – Extremely Average http://su.pr/2dhgCI Tonight’s post made me chuckle. :-) Brian
