Well, the lower back settled down for a while…..set with a HOT heating pad on it for a day and a half. Could finally walk more than 10’ without going OUCH! Got bored sitting around, didn’t have anything to “baste” the back with while it was baking.. meandered SLOWLY down the steps to the Dungeon Shop…..stairs and my back are NOT are speaking terms to each other. Had the correct tools back from the Loft Bed Project in one hand, and a pine 1×6 in ...
At this rate, it might take awhile. Managed to get one hour of work in, before the back started to have …”issues” Laid out the lines on the end panel, had to check several times to make sure that THIS was the way the pins go. Since some diddn’t like my use of the old crosscut saw to cut pins with, I tried out the Disston backsaw I have.. Had a lot of trouble with the cuts, even with some wax on the blade…..ah, needed the rip style one. This saw was le...
Well, back is giving me fits tonight. I tried to get at least one corner test fitted. Soooo, here we go.. had the lines all marked out, but needed a decent saw to cut the pins for the dovetails…..had a panel saw, 10 ppi, seemed to be sharp. tried it out, just splitting some lines.. Saw isn’t all that big, maybe 20” or less. Came from a hardware company up in Cleveland,OH. Seemed to do a decent enough job.. Well, after all the lines were sawn….I clam...
After I take the rails of the bending forms, I true up one edge and then rip them to size. I layout for the angled cuts on the curved ends, and then cut them with the miter saw. All the joinery for the curved rails are then cut with the Festool Domino. I also go through my clamping strategy for when I’m ready for glue up. As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

Hello Everyone,Just uploaded the last video for the Krenov cabinet on stand build. This build was a lot of fun and had a lot of firsts for me. All in all I think it turned out very good. Here is a link to the video. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQEr3xm4llk
Finally my first video is out! It is a lamps series that I made for a sushi restaurant. Basically I’ve used Spanish pine wood and water-based lacquer to finishing. Please feel free to leave a comment below and if you like, give a Thumbs Up and Subscribe! Watch the full video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjJBOy_3Ge0
We’ll it’s been a while since I updated my desk build blog. I had 40 mortises to square up on the legs, so I’ve taken the “15 minute” approach to this build. Whenever I had a little spare time I would knock out another mortise. With all of the mortises done, it was on to the tenons. I bought a Rockler heavy duty tenon jigs a while back, and tried it once with mixed results. Prior to that I have been using a home made jig for my router that holds pieces flat...
Hello Everyone, Uploaded part 4 of the Krenov Cabinet On Stand Build to YouTube. We have made some good progress and the cabinet is looking great. Check it out! Here is a link to the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjEyjbt_UhU
Hi all, I measured at least 10 times before making the cavity cuts. These need to be done before shaping so there is support for the tools – drill press and router. Before beginning the routs I had a little cleanup to do on the butt end of the through neck. The photo shows I back cut the tuner mount (this travel guitar is headless and has the tuner behind the bridge) to 20 degrees. This is so the tuners swing nominally level after tensioning the strings. If I didn’t ...
So I started talking about this table over in the forum and decided maybe it should be a blog instead. So I have been trying to put my limited wood working knowledge to good use and start trying to sell things I build, or sell items that have not been built yet. I tried everything, posting on craigslist, posting to bookface friends and family, and then on a local for sale page on the bookface, and once I put tables on the for sale page I started getting emails like crazy. Everyone wanted a cu...
