I am making a small bit of progress toward getting my working tools organized. I look at all the fitted tool cabinets and love how they look but I just can’t see myself working out of one. Come on, how do you work out of something like this? It is beautiful. It is a tool shrine. But seriously, how do you work out of it? I need a chisel. Here, let me take out two saws, get the chisel, put the saws back, work, take the saws out, put stuff back in, put the saws back. You either sp...

Hello LJ, As you know, the last few days I have been distracted by StumbleUpon and writing Winston the Camel stories. Tonight I got back into the shop and bent a piece of wood. This was very exciting for me, as I have been wanting to try it for some time, but I was chicken. It was just a small piece, and only a test. But I had success and it was fun. http://su.pr/2hvPPK Brian
Since I started woodworking one of the first projects I wanted to do was an adirondack chair. I finally started a couple of weeks ago. The plan is to make two full size chairs and one scaled down version for my daughter that is going to be here in the next couple of days or weeks. The first weekend I started by making full sized templates in 1/2 ” mdf. The second weekend (I may have skipped one or two where I did nothing related to these chairs) I rough cut some of the stuff and fin...

Today I cut the splines fairly flush with a flush cut saw after taping all around them with blue painters tape. Measured and drilled holes to install SOSS barrel hinges, and rough sanded everything to 120 grit. The first photo is of a maple box in progress. I found a 6’ piece of what appears to be 8/4 maple crown molding and decided it would make a neat box/shallow chest. It will have a spalted maple & walnut laminated top. After flush cutting and sanding box bodies. I did...
You are not going to believe how simple this glue-up is going to be. Some of you will not believe it will work. Others, possibly some of the cutting board purists, will say I’m cheating. Frankly Scarlet I don’t give a damn (name that movie). This is a box top and all its joints don’t have to be impervious to water, like a cutting board. I will flood the top of the pattern with a clear epoxy finish ultimately, anyhow. These are the players in this little drama. Left, t...
I thought for my first project I would start with something easy. So I have decided to build the ‘Coffee Table’ in the latest issue of the Woodsmith Magazine…What?...you don’t think that is an easy build. Well…You are probably right and my version may not look much like the picture in the magazine…but I’m going to build it none the less. And I’ll tell you why. Cause my wife likes it. It doesn’t get any simpler that that. So that...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #15: The Business Side of Woodworking - Risk Taken/Lesson Learned
Besides writing for the magazine and selling patterns through my site, I have a couple of larger companies which I sell my patterns to at a wholesale rate, for them to resell retail. This is a necessary and important part of my job because even though writing for the magazine is wonderful, it is on a free-lance basis and certainly wouldn’t be enough money to sustain me in a living. My own site is doing pretty good, and really gaining momentum since I have spent the time and attention ...
