Just a quick update: I built one drawer box and one drawer front so far, unfortunately I ran out of milled stock to do the second, so I’ll have to mill some more (hopefully this weekend) to finish up the second cabinet. This was the first drawer box I’ve done, so I was very happy that it came out just about perfect in width so that the slides attached properly. I goofed the first time mounting it, forgetting that the slide had to be flush with the front of the box, so the drawer...
Well being so new to woodwork and what not I expect to make mistakes. I have made many so far and im sure I have just scratched the surface of whats to come. My latest one is really bothering me though. Its bad when you wake up thinking about it…. Ugggg A little background… My oldest daughter has a younger half brother whom she wanted me to make a step stool for. I was very excited when she hit me up about it. I am 34 years old and still remember the one I had as a child. The o...
Got the new SawStop PCS today (arrived Friday but the local Woodcraft could only deliver today). Got the saw mostly setup; need to do adjustments and checking tomorrow (fence mostly – the rest I expect to be as good as I can tell without specialized testing equipment… but I’ll check anyway). I have not turned it on yet until after that’s done. Some first quick impressions compared to my old Steel City: The saw was the expected pleasure to put together – oth...
this is my winter project. I need to clean out the basement of the junk and move stuff from the garage to have ‘elbow room”! no pics yet, but the garage is small so every inch counts.
Furniture School #10: I could have sworn I had posted this ...well maby not. Better late than never!
I really thought I had posted the final product. Anyway here it is almost a year later. I am pleased with the results and will likely take the second part of the course comes April. I have been busy in and out of the shop but since the holidays season is upon us I have a bit of time on my hands. I will likely post a few project this evening. The finish is dark walnut water base satin with sprayed lacquer top coat (5 coats) then buffed. The bench had to match an antique piano (100 years ol...
INTRODUCTIONThis is a description of Tammy Tote, a much different tote than Tommy, who was described per request, and is very utilitarian, meant to leave the shop when necessary, and had a distinctly electrical bent. Tommy is described here Tommy Tote, and the tote philosophy. So here is the new tote, Tammy the shop tote, loaded with the intended tools, which I am sure will change over time: HISTORYTammy, who has a very different appearance, is designed to stay in the shop, but is m...
Is it just me or do the years get shorter as we get older? It,s been a unusual year to say the least. I started the year with food poisoning and pnumonia with barely a cup of rice to feed myself and no work and i,ve ended the year with good health and a couple of kilos of rice and my own workshop so things are certainly on the up. Along the way i,ve lost twentyfive kilos, grown a beard, met more con men and thieves than i,ve ever met in my entire life, found God and received a serious lesson ...
OK everybody get a good laugh out of the way right here at the start. I decided to make my first cutting board this holiday season, we had too much time off work. I started with some nice white oak that i have lying around. planed it and cut it into 1-1/2” slices, glued it together, and (ok here is the silly part) sent it thru the planer. Anyone who has tried to do this is now laughing and saying i remember trying this, everyone else is laughing at my stupidity! Talk about chatter, and ...
Greetings to all : I thought I might just throw this in for some serious consideration for those interested. In my early days of woodworking, I, like a lot of you out there in woodland, use the cheaper verson of the thin bar clamps, like Jorgonsons, Pony, etc. I built a cheap-o clamp rack to hang them on the wall out of the way. But a couple of years ago I started using the Bessey bar clamps and began to accumulate quite a few, along with some pipe clamps of various sizes. It was time for a n...
Here it is. My next video… finally! I feel like I got over a lot of learning curves on this one. I found this a particularly challenging subject to present because router inlay can get involved and there are often several ways to go about the different steps. Trying to cram all that into a video, however, is more likely to discourage folks from trying router inlay. My goal in this video was to present the essential knowledge and skills that one can start building on, thereby remo...
