I got the cove cut on the tablesaw, my first time to try this. Even though I took several passes at the final depth there was a lot of sanding to do( I would have liked to use a scrapper but don’t have one yet). I cut out a piece of 2×4 (the opposite profile) on the band saw for a sanding block. I also decide to use miniature ogee bracket feet. Making them would be a blog entry by it self as it took several steps to make them The little ding on the corner was some chipout...
Not all my projects are made from solid timber.. this one is a love job for a friend to replace the top of her ironing board.. the frame is metal tubing and the top was “chip board” .... she wanted it replaced.. with wood…well you and I know that wood does not like heat… and the occasional misting or steaming.. so I was forced to revert to Ply Wood. I ripped the ply to width and then very carefully [after marking the taper from the original] I used the table saw to ...
For those who know, I care for my elderly mother. I don’t sleep well and find I’m always trying to catnap while watching her…’cause I’m always listening overnight. I sprang up at a cough last night…ran to her bedroom to assist. I’ve managed to get a little time here and there in my shop in the last 2 days.Seven or eight years ago I bought a draw knife and two spoke shavers…garage sales I think. The draw knife was still marked $5.00…a b...
Some friends wanted a Panel to mount a flat screen TV but were limited on wall space so they wanted the panel to go over a window, but wanted the panel to sit flush to the wall. Here is how I did it using some french cleats on a frame built inside the window frame. First I cut some cleats I mounted one side to the panel about 18” off the top and bottom with glue and screws. Once that dried I clamped the other side of the cleat to them and built a frame to match the window openin...

Hello All, Yesterday I wrote a description of how I created the dust collection, and included it in my post in the project section. I didn’t have any additional photos at the time, and it was 1 AM and well past my bed time. So tonight I took a couple of shots and posted the description in my blog. http://bit.ly/aXFFZW If you were curious how the dust collection works on my router table fence, then hopefully this will be a description that is helpful. If you find it still isn...
Ok. It’s time to place the Workmate aside and build a real bench. Don’t get me wrong, the Workmate served me well these few years, and it still has its place (wrapping newspaper comes to mind). Time to build a real bench. I’ve done the research, read the Schwarz, and even helped a friend build his bench. It’s my time! So I went to the Woodworking in America show in Valley Forge PA last October and as luck would have it, there was a company offering kiln dried Ash 12...
so i had completely glued up the panel that is to become the top of the blanket chest I’m building, when all of a sudden i notice a MASSIVE crack in one of the boards right along the grain. It’s in the nicest piece too, with grain shifting towards quarter-sawn texture. CRAP. I guess that’s one of the hazards with using reclaimed wood… stuff could have been abused in its previous incarnation. anyway, I basically bent it until it snapped along the grain and am now ...
