Hey Guys! I’m new the woodworking field but I’m always trying to learn new things and doing my best. I just thought I would show you guys some of the things I’ve been given access in these recent months. One of my neighbors is selling his property and having all of his land cleared out and cut down. With that being said I noticed a year or so before this that he’s got plenty of burled trees littering his property to which he gladly gave me permission to cut down. M...

I fell behind on this a bit with the holidays (plus a bit of a headcold). I guess I’ll start out with a follow up detail from the last entry. Lisa (aka dustbunny) complemented me on the compound miters (Thanks Lisa!). I have to confess that they did not turn out that way right after glueing up. After I smoothed the rough edges, a few of the corners were not lined up right. In addition to the mis match, you can also see there is a slight chip in the lacewood at the bottom. Luckily...
For my Introduction to Woodworking class, we have a “final project” that we choose ourselves. Given that I’m learning to use hand tools, I’ve decided to make a handplane cabinet. In my latest blog entry, I show how I use Google (now Trimble) SketchUp to create the design and the use of layers and scenes to showcase the various parts of the design without duplicating any portion. This was based on information that I learned from Bob Lang in his article from Popular Woodworking. T...
This feels like real progress! By the end of this blog, you’ll be able to see that this clock is actually coming together. When I stopped last time, I was waiting for the BLO to dry on the front frame. It dried. Now I need to apply shellac. I decided on clear to let the cherry darken and age on it own. Maybe on their 50th wedding anniversary the couple will pull out some old pictures and see how the tone has mellowed, just like them. Here’s a shot of the shellac being appli...
As I have mentioned in an earlier post, it was decided early on that we would make the bottom shelf slatted instead of flat plywood. This actually turned out to be a little more challenging that I had hoped. It ended up with 12 slats, originally 14 but I dropped the 2 outer slats because I felt the joinery would be too busy, all connected with dominos to the front and rear rails. I also went ahead and pre-finished this shelf in anticipation of access issues while spraying. This piec...
Leg glue up. Yes, those are some nice burns on the wood. Lumber cut to size. My first mortise and tenon. Ever. Headboard minus panels, dry fit. Tuning the slot for a panel. Drilling (Forstnering?) another mortise. This is my method for inserting the nut for the bed bolt. I got the idea from a magazine, but this method set me back some hours. I would probably just use a barrel nut next time. Still, it looks pretty good. Today, my orbital sa...
