It’s been a long haul and not without a few setbacks, but our first semi-production run is almost complete. I have to say (and I have seen this mentioned before) these tops are the most labor intensive project I have ever experienced. With that said, I still have to build 3 more. It’s official-I really am not that bright!! and Cherry Base Clear Coated Tiger Maple and Walnut Base with Cherry Top That Big chunk of Maple with the pine “CA-ed” to the edg...
Today Dec 1, 2007 was the toy giveaway day for the Mason-Dixon Woodworkers Club Toy Workshop. We make toys all year long and we pass them out on the first Sat in December. This is the 13 yr that it has been done. It’s grown is scope but we are still looking for people that want to volunteer to make toys. We meet on every Wednesday of the year. Our first day for the 2008 toy making in this coming Wednesday. We had about 18 charities that showed up today. We had over 1200 toys to di...

Here is some more progress of the inlay. I started off by lightly tacking the star in the position I wanted and tracing the outline with a sharp knife. Light strokes at first and then gradually deeper. And then using a chisel to remove a little v notch. This allows me to cut slightly deeper with the knife and establishes the outside shoulder of the inlay mortise. It also gives me a visual barrier to look out for on the next step. I chucked up a small straight cutting bit in m...
As I mentioned in my last blog post, I was recently inspired to build a period reproduction piece of furniture. I chose to do a side table in the Queen Anne style based on a Glen Huey design with cabriole legs, scrolled aprons and a single drawer. I like this style and it poses some challenges in developing new skills. The picture is Glen Huey’s version. I’ve started down the path of building this piece and I hope that you’ll follow along as I post entries about its de...
Sorry Lumberjocks, this was intended to be part one. I’ve got it straight from here on. My eldest daughter is getting married! They got engaged Summer, 2010 and the wedding is planned for Sept. 17, 2011. I told them I’d like to make them something special as a wedding from my wife and me. This is what we all agreed would be a great gift. Never mind that I haven’t done anything in Arts & Crafts Style and that this is my reference, Bruce Johnson’s book on The ...
Here is my cherry refreshment table which will feature a single drawer and breadboard ends.-----I started by making breadboard mortises at the router table. The mortises are 1-1/4” deep and cut in multiple shallow passes. -----I used a 1/4” spiral bit to center a 3/8” groove in the breadboard ends. I made an initial pass in the standard right to left direction. Then I flipped the board end for end and made a pass from left to right to avoid a climb cut.-----I set up my t...
Here is the beginning of my current project. I got a new puppy Dec 1. We named her Jersey in honor of those great Jersey rockers – Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi. She’s big enough now to to have her own elevated dog bowl. I’ve cut the cherry stock from left over pieces of the kitchen table I have posted. Everything is squared up and I am ready to lay out the dovetails that will hold it together. I’m a tails first guy, so that will be next. She only gets a food...
