Been a little while, but I’m still working on this. I built this thing in order to get a very precise and flexible tool. So I needed a new fence to attach to my Incra Ultra. I wanted to be able to mount accessories and auxiliary fences. I went with Baltic Birch, as I have a ton of smaller pieces. I CNC’d the front and back plates, with dado’s and holes for t-nuts. T-Nuts on both sides for attaching auxiliary fences, and T-Nut’s for mounting to the Incra. Also have a...
I spent a very happy day in my workshop today….mostly I jointed, thicknessed and ripped lots of timber… Purple Heart, Silver Ash, Silky Oak…[aka Lacewood] and Tasmanian Blackwood… I used an Incra TSLS 32 to rip fine strips for accents.. More woven pattern projects in the wind. It is such a pleasure to work in the new clean workshop… I moved the 3 metre machine around to make more room to play on the 2 metre machine… and moved the mitre saw… now I hav...
Last night, I took the rings off of where the stumps were, and 3 of the 5 stumps to be removed were nothing but holes in the ground filled with ash. 1 was a half burnt 4” tall stump, the other untouched (ran out of charcoal). I will grab a couple more bags of charcoal, and finish the task over the next couple of days… This weekend is not promising for any shop or even fence time as LOML are signed up for a 5K fund raiser with our Weight Watchers group (yeah I am a middle aged b...
I have used the glue and sawdust and made my own fillers. I read about using epoxy and sawdust and gave it shot and this is what I came up with. Enjoy—http://blip.tv/file/3705398
Preparing for Assembly These are the short “stretchers” that go along the sides. The rabbet on the inside is for the plywood bottom to rest on. Now, up to this point grain orientation on every piece of the case construction is “correct” in relationship to its self. These stretchers on the bottom of the side pieces are the first members that could potentially CONSTRICT seasonal movement of the side pieces. If I permanently attach these pieces at both...
Well part of it anyway. A new set of eight clamping sticks, waxed this time and polished. Major squeeky bum (ass) time. Glue in a dish. Brush at the ready. Quick slurp of tea and there off…...........Pick up the piece, slap on the glue, position it in the frame. Repeat until you’re sure you’ve done something wrong. Put it right. Continue…...... After 20 minutes—->The glue was probably OK for another two rows but I bottled it (chickened out). Wasn’t used to ...

We painted the bedroom recently and decided to put up crown molding. Our house is 100 years old, and the Home Depot stuff just wasn’t getting us excited. We finally found a place here in Denver that specializes in old style moldings, since they’ve been in business since the moldings were originally created. Turns out we liked one of their in-stock moldings, so I’ve got 56 lineal feet of it ready to be put up. You can also see the cutting jig I made with the very expl...
We completed painting our bedroom, and are going to put up some crown molding, so the wine rack is waiting patiently on the workbench downstairs. I did manage to get myself a finer and smaller bandsaw blade—the one I had was used for hogging turning blanks out of damp logs, so was pretty aggressive and way too large to make the tight curves needed. Next is to use my template to flush trim them—they’re cut within about 1/16” of the line currently.
I am honored and blessed to be starting a traditional hand tool woodworking apprenticeship at the Steppingstone Museum just outside Havre de Grace, Maryland this weekend. The museum is a recreation of a late 19th century rural farm complete with a Joinery and an amazing collection of period tools all in working order. I have written more about my initial visit on my blog so check out the post here and stay tuned for much more news and content in the future as I will be spending my weekends ...
