Gary Fixler can identify with this. I’ve been working out of country for a couple of years to earn a decent tax-free income. However, with the global economic downturn last year, and the radical decline in commodity prices, The project I was on was shut down before Christmas and I’ve been without an income since. Not that I haven’t been working mind you, a farm has a never ending list of things that need doing, so I’ve been working, just not earning. Anyway, th...

I just wanted all to know it has arrived and is the sweetest thing ever.
Nothing tells you quicker how sharp your plane blade than taking a swipe across the end grain. It should go without saying that this tip requires a freshly sharpened blade. Come along and learn how I square up the end of a board using only hand tools.
I hate cutting bevels on my table saw. No matter what I do I get significant burning that has to be cleaned up, setting the blade and resetting to square adds time, and it can be very unsafe if not done properly. When I have limited bevel work to be done, I turn to my hand planes. This is the topic of my first hand tool tip episode.
This was a new technique for me and a learned a lot giving it a try. I think my neighbor’s kids may have learned some new colorful language too. Sorry kids! Come along an learn about eccentric turning and making a turned cabriole leg.
No electrons were harmed during the building of this table. This was great fun and even more affirmation of the time I spent building my workbench. Enjoy the video.
This build is part of my participation in The Wood Whisperer Guild build project. We are building these tables in the fight against cancer. Many of my fellows are donating or selling them with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society and our guild master Marc Spagnuolo is donating $5 for every completed table. Personally I will be giving this table to a good friend who lost her daughter to cancer recently. I hope you enjoy!
Some pictures of the tail – I’ll be working with the students today, so I will post some new pics we finish up. We are Car 170 in the Houston Art Parade this year.
