Well I am starting a new project and would like some input. After seeing to price of QSWO I was shocked to find the cost of the bed and rails made from Quarter Sawn White Oak came to right around a thousand dollars 8.50 A board foot. I can see using it on the legs and back rails that show but is that what everyone uses? Is 8.50 over priced? I thought it would be closer to 3.90 to 4.25 per BFT.
http://s1266.photobucket.com/albums/jj526/Rodman4071/Wooden%20Pens/ Here are some pics of pens I’ve turned lately and more to come. I find pen turning enjoyable and I can make money if only I would start doing it. I’m turning these pens on two different lathes, one a Sears 12 inch (which is very noisy and the other a Central Machinery 8 by 12 with virable speed and a quiet and sweet turning lathe, both of these lathes were given to me by my cool brother Julio in Georgia, my tha...

I did these “sketches” in Bryce to get an idea for proportions. I like what happened here. Problem is, in this sketch, the 4 main posts are 44 inches high, and my real life ones are 33, which is really the best height. However, I made the 3 raised panels to the specs in the drawing – 33” tall by 30” wide – way too big. The thing is way too big, when I tried to visualize it by laying out the posts and panels. Looks like I’ll have to take a good 8 inche...
So I had to wait another day after re glueing my palm box back together. After I got the clamps and tape off, this is what I was faced with. I don’t like sanding glue. Ok, one step back, now two steps forward. After Re sanding the lid, several times, I have everything attached and working again. There is still a hair line fracture visible after the clean up. The lid is working much better. It even stops halfway back instead of flopping all the way open. I...
Greetings All!Haven’t been on in awhile and I’ve missed you all so much! My illness has ventured into unimagined depths of late. I’m seeing a neurologist later this week to find out why my arms occasionally don’t cooperate as well as why I walk like a drunk chicken from time to time. Despite my worst fear (M.S) my attitude is positive and I will not quit or give up. Any and all prayers would be greatly appreciated! Now, onto my topic. My partner, Laurie, is in ...
We continue on with the build and get our dados sorted out.

It has been 2 months since I worked on the project and posted any progress. In the last entry I was happy with the first mitered top. But over the holidays I would look at it and think, I can make it better, (a tighter miter). The first top was cut at 45.2 degrees. There was a slight gap in the joint. I ran a few test pieces through. I adjusted the miter sled by 0.05 degrees. I’m not kidding. The best tests were at 45.15 degrees. If I was working in pine, the first cuts could have be...
I’ve been toying with the idea of starting my own woodworking business for literally decades. Now, at age 61 I think I finally have the nerve to do it. I don’t have any illusions about what I’m about to do. I don’t want to go “big time”. I just want to sell some of my work and (probably) use the money I make to buy more woodworking toys. I don’t really want to do much on a large scale. Little things like jewelry boxes, keychain bobs, hand carvings and...
