Hello Wood Chopperoos! Chad Stanton has been quite busy working on that bridge project you know, so he wanted me to type something for his latest video, this one, THE FLOWER BOX TRIM – Part 3 in the series. Chad is one hard working guy. He can’t even take a crap without someone calling or emailing him some question about wood, carpentry or that Brooklyn Woo-Fang dance move….or whatever its called. Please take notes during this video and keep your eyes peeled for ...
One of my Christmas gifts is due in tomorrow, a Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide, my kids got it for me via a gift card. I made these Glass Sheets along with the honing guide to use in the Scary Sharp system. I use the 3M micro-abrasives as specified over at Brent's Sharpening Pages. The glass is 3/32”x6”16” and the boards are from a pile of oak shorts I purchased a while back. The boards are 3/4”x6 1/2”x19” and the dowels are to keep the sheet from moving dur...
I reciently made trip to North Carolina and while there I stopped in and visited the local The Klingspor Store. The most interesting thing abut the store is the sandpaper. Klingspor is a sandpaper manufacturer and one of the side effects of are leftover pieces of sandpaper as they are cut from the roll. In the not so distant past these remnants were thrown away. They now take these remnants and throw them into a 4’x4’x3’ tall box and ship it out to one of the stores. These s...
I have written the following three blogs for the third time now. Originally I wrote them up as one blog, but due to unfortunate circumstances lost both of the previous write ups. I am going to write each one up individuality now….crossing fingers. I have been working on several “big” projects and in the mean time I have worked on several smaller projects. For the first project, I selected a space on my workshop wall behind my Miter Bench as a new home for my marking and m...
Hey Guys, I told a friend I’d try and sell some of his black walnut so here’s the offer. I’m trying to put together a package deal since he wants to sell all 7000 bf of it in one fell swoop, of course it doesn’t have to be all one buyer. Anyway the wood is all air dried, all 10/4 and 5/4 stuff, some of it is up to 12” in width and none of it is less than 6’ long with most of it 8’ up to 12’ in length. I know lots of ya’ll might not b...

Yesterday we started working on my son’s 8’x2’ computer and gaming table. He is a great guitar player and has his receiver and mixing board that has to find a home, other then the floor. The table will have two 24” x 24” cabinets with shelves for all his equipment and consoles with a slide out shelf for his sound mixer. I cut all the parts yesterday and painted the inside of the cabinets flat black per his instructions. Today I cut the holes in all the shelfs and...
Every woodworker has scrap wood setting around the shop just waiting to be purged or merged. I’m no exception and I’m sure I’m not alone in the thought that I just can’t seem to part with the 3/4” plywood 6” by 9” piece because it could be useful sometime in the future. In particular, I have several scraps of 1x material laying around. In an effort to clean up my shop, I’ve decided to make something out of some of my scrap rather than just th...
If its true that what you do on the first day of a new year is what you do for the rest of it then i,m in trouble. I got food poisoning on xmas morning!! It hit me just after I went to a good friends house for one of his typicaly brilliant English roast dinners and it was to be the highlight of an otherwise crap year, but alas it was not to be. It did mean I missed the vodka induced brawl later that evening so maybe it was a small blessing. So my plans for the start of the year were thrown in...
