Got the fall 2015 issue #60 of Scrollsaw Woodworking to build another project but found the patterns for Lazy Raccoon and had to give it a try.I’ve never done a intarsia before so just thought I’d give it a try.Have got it pretty well all cut out and shaped but will do some fine tuning tomorrow but just wanted to show my progress.

I built it out of white oak, and finished it with the customers selected stain color and a satin poly. Once I finish editing the pictures I’ll post some glamour shots in the project section. Please watch, thumbs up, and subscribe to my channel. Watch on Youtube

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #3: Legs and Grill Work

10-21-2015 02:43 AM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

We’ll it’s been a while since I updated my desk build blog. I had 40 mortises to square up on the legs, so I’ve taken the “15 minute” approach to this build. Whenever I had a little spare time I would knock out another mortise. With all of the mortises done, it was on to the tenons. I bought a Rockler heavy duty tenon jigs a while back, and tried it once with mixed results. Prior to that I have been using a home made jig for my router that holds pieces flat...

10-12-2015 07:07 AM by Mike | 2 comments »

Hi All; This week I was very busy so I didn’t have time for a more traditional project video. I did want to try a new finishing technique I had come across called Hydro-Painting. It involves spray paint and a bucket of water. The resulting box is from one of my first attempts. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks, Mike View on YouTube

Slow Days at the Shop. #2: Repairing my antique basswood drawing board.

10-02-2015 07:48 AM by fatman51 | 1 comment »

I cleaned up my shop after work today, intent on gluing the plane tote pattern I printed from the Lee Valley website to a scrap of wood to make a permanent pattern, thanks goes to terryR for Shop Log 20. http://lumberjocks.com/terryR/blog/47745 . Unfortunately, my printed pattern was off scale, .9487 to 1. Rather than fiddle with he printer settings and hoping for the best, I figured out the scale and grabbed my old drawing board from the closet in my shop. This decision wrecked my plans...

My wife would like a new mirror in our bathroom over the vanity. She want’s better lighting so she can put her make-up on. I have an idea I want to use but, I’m not sure on the lighting issue. I’ve thought about putting can lights in the valance over the mirror. Will the lights get too hot in the valance encasement? Should I use low wattage lights such as LED’s? If I do, will the LED’s be sufficient lighting for her? Should I scrap the whole Idea and just ...

Slow Days at the Shop. #1: Cleaning, finishing the band saw stand, carpentry, and making pestles

09-29-2015 07:33 AM by fatman51 | 3 comments »

I took a look at my project lists this morning, like I do every Monday, and picked out a something that had been waiting a while. It was a carpenter project, custom exterior stair rails. I went out to my shop to take a look around and decide where to start. I decided that before I went outside in search of material, I needed to clean the place up. As I vacuumed the planer shavings out of the base of the band saw stand, I decided to finish the case and build the drawer that I had p...
