My first take was too busy, muddy and lacked contrast. I decided to take what was working and go from there. I definately wanted to keep the Navajo mountain pattern in the Bubinga. Here is where the project is at the moment because – that’s all I have. ;) I’m not going to use Oak. All of the lighter colored wood will be cherry. I’ll be adding a paduak border a bit later. I may be addidng in some peruvian Walnut (Never heard of such a thing until today. Nex...
Hey everyone, Just wanted to share a couple of shop Jigs with you. One is a quick and simple jig for quartering your sheets of sandpaper to use in your palm sanders or sanding blocks. The second jig is a multi function tapering Jig that lets you do 4 sided tapers as well as straight edging rough sawn boards and cutting angles also.. There could be many more uses, there are just the 3 I focus on in the videos. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3
In the last episode the latest box (a Bubinga type thing) was in the final stages… After cleaning up the top’s edges, some “reveals” were found, small separations in the miters of the top… I tried what I’ve heard about here so many times, making a slurry of the sawdust and wood glue, and applying it to the separations… The results were excellent!! When the project is posted in a few days, You can be the judge of where the reveals were! :)Anyway, wh...
Almost four days ago, we left off with the four sides standing, and I was about to begin adding panels to this latest box… From the beginning, it was in the plan, to feature some of the Curly Yellow Birch that was purchased especially for Panel making…I’ve done this many times, and it is usually a routine step in the procedure… Alas, rumors of my abilities are greatly exaggerated…Little did I know, that such pretty wood, would be so ugly to work!!The panel ...
A couple of months ago in J.f.F. #71, after a bunch of milling, I came up with some book-matched Bubinga that I said simply must be made into a box… After a trip to New Mexico, to visit with the Patron,and after Debbie and I re-doing our living room,and several trips to the Beach,and a hundred other things I can’t even recall,this Week, work finally began. Oops, Sorry! I kinda lost track!Oh yeah… Bubinga… Box…Actually, all the time that I was doing those th...

In this time lapse woodworking video I’m using a vacuum bag to laminate 2 panels together, to create a single 3/8’’ thick panel with Bubinga and Walnut on either side. I had the 2 different veneers already on a mdf substrate, so it was simply cutting to size applying glue and turning on the press. Hope you enjoy and thanks for watchingPaul
I ask a couple of my woodworking friends to help me talk to you about some common woodworking joinery. Woodworking joinery is the method of joining two pieces of wood together to create a more complex item. Woodworking Joinery is the one thing we as woodworkers need to know and this video talks about 4 common woodworking joints that you are most likely to use in your projects. In this video you will learn about the following joints Half Lap Joints – Presented by Jay Bates Jays...
This week’s Project is a horizontal Murphy Bed. The bed I built is a twin size bed using the Create-A-Bed Hardware kit from Rockler Woodworking and Supply. The finished look of the bed can be trimmed and finished to match your homes decor, really the limit on the final look is only limited by your imagination. These videos just tell you about the use of the hardware kit and the general construction of the project. I hope you enjoy it.
