Went to lowes to get some pocket hole screws, which they didn’t have. but checked the close out table. Got 4 qt’s of Cabot stains for $1 each , a gallon of stain (also Cabot) for $2 and a gallon of Minwax water base poly for $10. I don’t know if this was limited to my store or something going on throughout the chain but it might be worth looking for if you happen in to a lowes.

This next part is cutting the rabbet into the Keel and Stem. The rabbet is a groove for planking to butt into. The rabbet must be accurately cut in order to form a tight seal. The rabbet for sunshine runs down both sides of the stem as shown and continues along the keel to the stern. Keel Rabbet Cutting the Rabbet in the Keel was relatively easy since I had already beveled the keelson from the lofted lines in the Stem and Knee - Part 2 section. To me, it seemed practical to try ...
Wow – another productive day. Most of us actually have the box together and close to ready to cut the lids off! I apologize first that I left my camera and notes at the school. Too tired to go back for them so I’ll try to do the best I can from memory. I think I left off on having just finished the pins and getting ready to mark and cut the tails. My first issue with my pins is that they are really steep – way to steep – but workable. The problem with steep pi...
Today I am beginning a new blog about my latest home project. I am remodeling our front living room in the Greene & Greene style, including making the lighting, the front window and the furniture for it. This will be an example of what I will be marketing as part of my business. Our house is an early 60’s ranch with a full basement. The outside of the house is Ashlar sandstone. I will try to organize the process by indicating Day 1, Day 2, etc. Note that Day 2 may not follow t...

When I acquired a largish pile of black walnut I was interested in a project that would give me a finished product in a relatively short time. So there, under a pile of things I was too lazy to put away, is my Legacy mill. The lights went on. I glued up a turning stock and went to work. The first thing is to affix the connector. Then it goes into the Legacy headstock. Notice the pen marks. If I need to take the work out for anything it can go back in exactly where it wa...
I met with the SBA (Small Business Administration) this morning and discussed my business startup. She gave me a lot of good advice and is going to help me with my business plan. She looked over everything I had put together so far and the direction I told her I am planning to go in. She said I was doing things the right way and suggested at first finding either a bookkeeper or an accountant and let them take care of what they’re good at, and me take care of what I’m good at. ...
