Hello again all. I got the beading done on the blades. ! ! After that I use an oversized bearing on a rabbeting bit to remove the material between the beading. Also I left some material on the dovetails. The only reason for that is I was afraid of tear out. ! ! I roughed out the drawer template the same way a I did the drawer fronts with a pattern cutting bit. But the drawer fronts have to follow the same contour as inside the beads. I just used the same rabbeting bit to take c...

Petunias, & Snow trying to compete. Let’s sit down, & enjoy the Morning.
Almost Done I only have a few things left on the list for this round of shop organization. I need to get the clamps hanging on the wall. At the moment they are just laying on the floor. Before this started they were standing, piled in a corner. It was difficult to access them or pull them out individually, but I cannot neglect them for one more day on the floor. This has been their temporary home while I finished the wall. I also need to hang the extension cords. I have a lot of ...
Couple of old cheap guns I have had very bad plastic grips on the pistol and the gunstock was homemade out of pine and had broke.I carved the shotgun stock out of 8/4 cherry. Its not quite done yet. The grips for the pistol I carved out of scrap curly hardmaple. The guns are practically worthless so I thought I would ‘dress them up’ a little.

I met a gentleman last week and we got to talking about wood. Turns out he used to work the wood and “still had some walnut” he says. “If you want it, you can have it” Well, my week went by and today my wife and I had to go down to San Diego, so I decided to give Butch a call. “OKay” he says, “I’ll dig it out from the corner of the garage, oh, and bring a truck, because this won’t all fit into a car trunk, that is if you want it all.”...
Sitting With Some Old Friends ….sitting with some old friends,and what is this need that shakes my be-ing,till from the shards of my distant past,comes the dust storm of ever present wood-chips…. ….these friends have sat patiently now,as the years pass and seasons come and go,their numbers all-ways on the increase-decrease,but with patience and expectancy they abide…. ….my friends have with-stood the ages of change,knowing that in these times-these too shall p...
I was recently asked by a friend to build an entertainment center. No big deal, right? Simple case, some shelves, etc. etc. The one part of this request that has me scratching my head a bit is this: Mount the tv on a vertical stand so that it can be hidden in the table when it’s not needed. He was thinking about having a hand crank or some other manual mechanism to raise the tv. Pneumatic shocks to assist. While that seems possible, motorized mounts are around and seem like a ...
