It’s the JET – JSG-96CS: 6’’ x 48’’ Belt / 9’’ Disc Sander w/ Closed Stand, 3/4HP 1Ph, 115V. It arrived by pallet in two boxes: Right away the 3/4HP motor and belt seemed bigger than I’d imagined this past year or two (this has been on my wishlist for awhile now). I had even scaled up my mental image, but it was still bigger than I thought: The closed stand is a very thick sheet metal, and heavier than I expected. It was a...
Merry Christmas wood buddies!!!!
After completing the Segmented Vessel, I decided I’d make the segments on my next piece a little thinner than the 3/4” previously used. Since we are all in the Christmas spirit, I thought I’d make a new ornament for our tree this year. The segments in this piece are 1/4” thick, and this piece includes a total of 92 segments. Here’s the before picture of the ornament blank glued up on the lathe. After turning, sanding and the first coat of wipeon polyurethan...
NORTH POLE – Due to the increasing population of the world and the “Cash for Toys Program”, it has been reported that Santa Claus (AKA Kris Kringle) cannot keep up with the many furniture wishes he has received this year. Santa tells reporters in his yearly press conference that, along with recovery effort, many other factors have contributed to the problem. The popularity of a baseball bed, murphy beds, and a Princess Castle Loft have made his schedule very demanding. ...
Our toy making operation was published in the newspaper again. It seems that the article was published in Delaware Wave on December 17, 2008, Delaware Coast Press in December 18, 2008 and in the Daily Times in December 23, 2008 It is truly an honor to be a part of this group of dedicated workers who meet each Wed of the year to make toys for kids. They are distributed to different charities in the area for their distribution to the children of their client families. We make about 120...

My youngest daughter was very much into horses when she was at home. We had 14 Acres in New Jersey and probably had horses for around 15 years or so. After High School was over the horses disappeared and the horse barn became a lumber storeroom. She got married and about 6 month ago her in-laws gave her some riding lessons as a birthday gift. The horse fever caught on again. This time she has a young daughter. For some reason girls and horses seem to go together. Missy sometimes takes S...
This is an old commerical that I did over 20 years ago with my brother. Don’t let any customers see the prices. Those prices aren’t even valid. LOL. Don’t forget to see what Santa is working on this year form our Current Projects page at www.wwbeds.com. Here is a view from our “elf cam”.Live video chat by Ustream
I’m posting this here as a blog because I wanted to talk a little about it, but also I didn’t feel the need to cluster the projects page with all these. To start off I wanted to say that these projects are important to me not only because of what they are for but because of who made them. She is an amazing woman, and I’m glad to have her in my life. These ornaments and decorations were cut out by me, or bought as kits. Most of this blog isn’t about the woodwork itse...
