The one Project Video I get asked the most to make is how to build a crosscut sled for the Tablesaw. Well there are a lot of videos out there on making a Cross cut sled, so this is my take on it. I hope you can take something from this video and use it in your shop
When it comes to shop storage, these simple shelves are an easy and versatile way to get your shop organized..Construction of the shelves is a breeze, and they can be designed to fit your storage needs
I got a NEW lathe! So now I can turn longer shafts for canes and other things. Really pleased with it. Here is a cane I’m doing as a commission, with an antler handle and a lot of carving on the shaft. The designs are based on leatherworking patterns and will cover most of the cane. May end up having to keep it! I am working on a design for another lizard cane, a lady here in Arkansas may want a couple of canes, and a gentleman in Canada has contacted me about a Santa staff. Hopeful...
Doesn’t seem like 6 days have passed, but the calendar does not lie. I have a lot to catch up with.First order of the day was to edge join the pieces I would need to have wider- like for parts of the stand legs and the base of the harp.These Bessey clamps are the best.Then I needed to cut the angled sides. This was the most dreaded job, and the first rip (with the grain) on the table saw (my second least-favorite power tool). Took most of a morning to assemble the tool and then to figur...
So the discussion in my last blog really got me thinking and for whatever reason this evening I decided to give dovetails a shot. I’ve never done any sort of locking joinery before… in fact I’ve only even tried mitred joints a few times without all that much luck. I figured it out. This is 3/32×1/8 balsa wood. It was just two scrap pieces I thought I’d see if I could actually do it. Determining that, in fact, I could, I set about making the drawers. ...
This classic box is for a friend’s son, when he turns 13. My next step is to spray on an amber shellac finish.
Why this quilt pattern is called “Geese on the Move”, I sure don’t know.But what I do know is that it makes a great quilt square chip carving.I’ll show you how to carve two-sided chips in this lesson. Here you go: Next Lesson: Applying a finish
:O) I am a bit excited. I finally have a set of GRR-Rippers in the shop. I have been wanting one for a long time. So I put together this video to show you just a couple reasons why I am pumped up about these helpful shop accessories. Not only are they keeping me safe, but they are allowing me the opportunity to perform tasks I couldn’t perform before… That in itself has got me doing backflips… lol Here is a look at the video
I got my carving fixture completed today. Now I should be able to make some more progress on the carving. Been going slow because I have been focused on rehabilitation of my leg. Finally able to put a little weight on it (30%) and this means increased exercise, physical therapy and such. I’m still adjusting to the new level of activity. The fixture is made from some borg 3/4”by 24” by 24” plywood squares. I laminated two sheets together for the top to support...
Sometimes I am just like a child. I guess that age has nothing to do with maturity, does it? Here I was yesterday, doing what I was supposed to be doing (drawing) and my partner called that he got off of work early. By early, I mean it was about 2pm. He asked if I wanted to head to Bernie’s and re-saw that wood we got on Friday (I guess he is a child, too!) and it took me about half a second to answer YES! I have been thinking about all those beautiful wood pieces since we got ba...
