I was looking at Woodcraft and online for some brass pins for boxes, knife kits, etc…. I not only was unable to find anything at Woodcraft, but they were unable to order anything for me regarding this or even point me in the right direction. I know this probably should go in the forum section. I tried and it did not show up under Hardware section. I need these pins for building boxes for the gents in my wedding party and the Dads. Your support would be highly appreciated for recommendat...
Sketchup File Well the boss has tasked me with a different project than the bedroom. Last year we put laminate flooring down in the dining room and our office in preparation for putting builtins in the office. Nothing has been mentioned of them lately, until I started designing the bedroom furniture. Originally we were going to use kraftmaid cabinets to do the rooms, and I had a pretty nice setup… But I wasnt really happy with all my options and things we had to do ‘s...
In memory of all those lost on 9/11. Exactly 8 years ago at 8:46 am New York city was normal until flight 11 hit the north tower. I was on west street during the attack see my cousin was in from maine he is a lobster fisherman and I was at his dads apartment talking to him. Now manhattan is restricted air space because there are so many high rises so you never hear planes that loud. There are helicopters but not planes. Now west street ran on the west side of the trade center and I was about ...
One of my favorite projects ever to come out of my shop is the John Hall Frame reproduction (mine is on the left and the original is on the right). Just as a quick refresher, John Hall was one of the famous Hall Brothers who were responsible for the construction of many of the best known Greene & Greene creations. Now many of you may remember that I was attending a week-long class being taught by Darrell Peart at the William Ng School when I had an opportunity to handle, trace, and me...

This is going to be a shoe rack. You might wonder why i chose to make something with 46 dadoes as a first project, the answer is that i didn’t know what i was getting into, cutting square rectangles and routing straight dadoes wasn’t as easy as the books made it appear.The horizontal shelves were made with 3/4’’ plywood. The original plan was to use 12 plywood to match the 12 straight router bit that I had. After the discovery that 1/2” plywood isn’t re...
I have been working to try getting my shop in better shape. When we bought the house we live in now I wanted a 3 car garage to use the third stall as my shop but I always had it too cluttered to have it as my shop. my dad was in town this week so he designed me a wood shelf to stack wood on which helps a lot in cleaning my space. Also got both of our cars back in the garage as well. I put the pictures up in my workshop area of my lumberjocks account.
Well, I found 4 2×4x8s of cedar following me home in the bed of my truck tonight. Not a bad deal considering Lowes had them for a lower price than I am used to seeing them around here. ($5.16 each, I am used to seeing $6.89 each). So I came home with them, and decided to squeeze some planing time in before 9:00, and got the dressed boards down to at least thickness before I had to wrap it up. I have had my planer since Valentine’s day 2008, it was a gift from my wife. I love thi...
