Who’d have thought it, but I’m making another box!!I made the sides out of a little of the cherry my Parent’s neighbor was kind enough to give me…The bad news is, the band saw only accepts wood under 5 1/2” thick and the original piece was almost 7” wide…The good news is, my boxes are small ones, so I cut about 1 3/4” off of it, and I’ll use that to make the hinges… I guess you can see why this was a cut-off…But the subject tod...
So I came home from work one day to find the February 2008 copy of Woodworker’s Journal out on the kitchen table with a post-it-note on it that said, “Make me one of these except with dolphins.” The article was about a bandsawn box with a ying-yang design. My wife saw that it was made with a bandsaw and wanted me to make it because she’s still mad at me for buying the band saw and not telling her until afterward. Now I announce to her every time I use it so that she...

If you’re like me you’ve probably looked in various woodworking magazines over time and have read articles on applying wood inlay. Sometimes the inlay can be rather simple and yet it becomes a nice accent. Other times the inlay can be somewhat complex and it can really grab your attention. I suppose that’s why inlay has been around for thousands of years. For example, the Egyptians, Chinese, Persians, and other cultures used inlay millenniums ago to embellish their works ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #24: Finished 3 Frames, Wrote Some Instructions, and Made Some Pizza :P
Yesterday turned out to be one of those days where the clock must have been spinning double-time. It seemed I got an early enough start, but before long the sun was setting and it was over. It is amazing how some days do that. It just seems that time is not always my friend. Besides the normal Saturday ‘chores’ of cleaning the cat box, kitchen and bathroom and doing some food shopping, I had the most intense craving for Chicago-style pizza. Now Nova Scotia has some of the be...
Well we got to work the bugs out of the set up. There were over 90 hand-made vendors….and about 90 consumers attending thus the ehhh….. We learned: that initial impression was key to draw folks into the tent. As folks were walking by the tent they would veer over to the products we had on the edge of the table closest to the opening. At first I had some expensive eye grabbing boards out there but as folks were drawn to the eye catching work the price tag helped them make the...
I’ve heard quite a lot about Wood Shop closures in various School systems around the Country… it’s saddening news. That’s why it was great the other morning to go by my old Alma Mater and see that, at least here in Manchester, the Woodworking programs are alive and well!!On my way to work I spotted these handsome works-in progress…I’m not sure exactly what you call them… They each had a tapered leg assembly next to them, so they’re a stand-up ki...
Woodturning has taken its hold once again. In this video we are back at the wood lathe with our turning tools working on a new woodworking project, a segmented vase of 18 rings and 432 segments. You’ll see the woodturning process from the very beginning along with edited clips displaying the various wood gouges chosen to cut and shape this segmented vase of mahogany, cherry, maple, and walnut. When the actual woodturning is completed we will break out the sandpaper and illustrate ...
