One last push and they are done. Here is the box with the dried homemade wood filler. Here it is sanded. Not to bad. Some of the holes were a little to tiny to hold the filler . . . but that’s ok. I will know for next time. Boxes with nameplates attached. DW purchased the plates on-line for next to nothing. Its the second year we purchased engravings from this guy and they have been quality both times. The screws did not come with the plates. They are #4 Robinson...
ok, so 87 days ago I worked out (and blogged) the plan, and workflow to knock off a series of 100 similar turned ornaments. Similar in size and shape, but with a world of variety in the woods used. Rather than attempt another 30 projects in 30 days, 100 of the same seemed similarly challenging, but reasonable enough. I’d only really need to turn 3 a day for a month, plus a couple more on the weekends and I’d be all set. As I’ve previously mentioned, it’s the photogr...
I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Two sided tape to hold the sides together for cutting. Sides stuck together and marked for cutting. Front part of the box cut from the sides. I used the BS as it removed the lease amount of material. Back laid in place. Sides and back attached. Front of the box assembled. Test fitting the front. 3/4” brass hinges & most of the pieces for the drawers.
Holy cow! Christmas is only a month away. Have you started making gifts? Here’s a little decorative swing that holds a couple of flower pots. I had the most fun making the little ladybug that sits on the swing. Unleash your inner artist: it’s the unexpected details that make a mundane project soar.

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. ...

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...
