Making some larger (these are about 10” high, 7” wide & 5” deep) band saw boxes for sisters-in-law + extra for the gallery. I decided to take some photos of the various parts… I neglected to take a photo of my side cut on the box that allowed entry to cut out the drawers. I did a full top to bottom cut for that purpose since I find I can get a tighter fit when gluing it back. I’ve had people ask how do you cut those things (especially with the segmented dr...

Next I decided to make the base. Since I wanted the skirt to match the skirt on our Captain’s Chest I copied the pattern onto paper then created a 1/4” ply pattern by gluing the paper to the ply, rough cutting with the bandsaw, then carefully sanding the edges using my disc sander and oscillating sander. I screwed the ply pattern to what would be the back of the front skirt piece and rough cut with my bandsaw. I then used a pattern bit on my router table to finish off the cur...
Every now and then you see something on Craiglist that makes you go hmmmm. If the old-timey BS isn’t worth a look, the work shop is.
For me, when someone makes a project that I have shared, it is the ultimate flattery. I hope the two youtube woodworkers feel the same as I make there designs of these fine tools for my shop. Special thanks go out to John Heisz and Peter Brown for providing plans and/or videos of these projects. Today I make three different designs of compass’s. I have needed a compass in the shop for a long time and some recent projects this need has arisen. SO today I am going to make three differen...
