I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...
One of the beautiful aspects of woodworking is that there are so many facets to the craft. Marquetry is one of these woodworking crafts that requires just basic woodworking tools and is well with the reach for all of us. The primary shop tools used for this wood project are the scroll saw, table saw, and the band saw. The hardwoods selected for this project came from a number of wood species that were in the scrap bin. Selected woods for this woodworking project include hickory, maple,...
I have a wonderful Forrest WWII thin kef blade on my table saw which I am very careful what I choose to use it on – maybe because it cut a big hole in my budget (glue edge I might add). So I have researched cheaper blades that I would not be so picky on using to rip anything. My guess is that there are folks out there who can’t risk throwing a tooth on a Forrest when ripping less than perfect lumber.Eureka, buds I found a couple of WOW blades that you don’t have to take bai...

I deal with correcting mistakes instead! It has been quite a while since my last post, but I AM still working on this project. In addition to regular life, we have had a week long vacation, business trips (including 2 weeks in China), a family illness and preparing for RAGBRAI . The shop time has been hard to come by. I figured this would be a good time to confess and share how I am dealing with this round of unexpected issues. Dull Bandsaw Blade I started to shape one side of the...
Thought I’d share one of my more popular projects with everyone. This is a candle holder that I make quite a few of and still now and again make mistakes as you will see. I hope everyone enjoys this episode—
Yesterday turned out to be a pretty productive day. Among other things, I finished cutting my matching self-framing picture frame, which will be the companion piece to the dresser tray I designed last week. In designing this pattern, I was fighting with whether I should or should not do additional scroll work in the center of the tray. To me it seemed that it was interesting enough on its own. I wanted the scroll work border to be the highlight of the piece, along with the beautiful chara...
Hey everyone,I am in need of some help! I am writing a book called “The Burl Hunter”. I am looking for interested people who are willing to read as I write to help me out. I am not a great writer but I love to teach. What I would like to do is get about 5 people to read and critique the book. Even edit my grammar. I would like 2 people who know about burls just to keep me in check and 3 to just read to learn and see how it flows. I need your input. It is a book that will g...
In this episode I glue up the bottom case. Then I start staining. http://kostasworkshop.blogspot.com/
I had already taken some pictures of some of the tools that I discovered when removing the top layer of the collapsed shed. To preface this, the door to this shed was to open inward but it wouldn’t budge before it collapsed because a ceiling beam had fallen and wedged itself against the door making it impossible to open. I couldn’t get to the hinges and I was always fearful of kicking it in because I had no clue of how it might fall if I did get the door to budge. Through some cra...
