Check out this years Christmas presents for family and friends. https://youtu.be/qFf5-WgeKRE Used pine, walnut gel stain, bottle openers, black pipe with end nipples, angry orchard beer. Let me know if you like the idea. Thanks Bob Dec 13,2015
So, after taking some time to get over my hissy fit about the rocking reindeer, I once again approached them – this time with a tube of E6000. I carefully glued all the broken bits back together and then proceeded with FINALLY attaching the rockers to the legs. This time everything stayed together (thank you epoxy!). I’ve had them sitting on a shelf for a few days now to let the epoxy cure, and I’m going to, with some trepidation, to take them back to the shop today to tr...
I decided to make a cooler box for my deck and I designed the whole project using examples from the web below are some of the design aspects that I designed on Sketchup.. Also is a shopping list for all materials and tools that I will be using in its construction: If you decide to make this cooler please take your own cooler measurements… As you know they are all very different, my cooler is a 48 quart cooler.. The cooler roughly cost me $100 for materials but I had to buy the K4 ...
Like I mentioned in my post Stay Tuned , I have been traveling for some time. So, why Mexico? Why not Africa, Asia, The Americas or Europe? Well, I am just going to tell you why Mexico and from there you can dissect the reasons why I did not move to the other places. Reason #1. SportsOnce I finally get a bi-weekly video going on, you will hear me bring up Liverpool, Mexico futbol, American football, WRC and F1 from time to time. Mexico gives me access to all these sports on the tele. Th...
Back before Christmas I built this simple beer tote to present some beers, which I had bought my Dad as a gift. As this was a gift I designed it to tightly house the bottles (the handle acts to hold them in place) but this could easily be adapted for day-to-day use. Check out the video below!

This is a project my friend and I have been talking about for a while. Between both our schedules it’s been tough being able to actually start this and it will take a while to complete as well. The design we are going to use is something that my friend came up with, it’s his table after all ;). Today we drew up a rough sketch and picked up some maple and cherry for the top. The idea is to have a table top with a removable chessboard in the center. Underneath will expose an ice ...
Hi everyone. I would like your advice on a process problem. I’m looking to make 40-50 cylindrical wooden beer mugs with handles.To make the body, I plan to turn out a long cylinder on a lathe, then cut it down to length. The I’ll drill the center out with a big forstner bit on a drill press. (I don’t have the capabilities to center drill this on my little lathe) From there, I’ll rout a flat spot to glue on the handle. My questions: Is there a better way to ...
Things I am going to make from this ole Texas barn Part 1... #1: This ole barnwood is too pretty to carve a ranch sign out of...but too late now :)
This ole barnwood is too pretty to carve a ranch sign out of…but too late now :) Yep, that’s my blog and I am a sticking to it…Got an order last week for a 1”x12”x12’ and a 1”x12”x6’ carved sign for a ranch in Comanche, Texas and the lady wanted it carved on old barnwood and ready for her husband’s birthday on the 4th of next month, so I took a deposit and looked at what I had and I did not have a 12 foot long piece, so I started sw...
