Found a few boards to use. Got the one 1×6x60” cut down into three boards. Glued up into a panel, and then flattened with a couple handplanes. I have a large, plastic tub sitting under the bench, to catch a few shavings Between the top, and a pine shelf, it got full kind of fast. Sawed a couple found 2×4s into some leg stock. Plan (Plan, I have a plan??) was for a notch about halfway up the legs, to house a shelf. Grabbed a small saw, and knocked off a corne...
Time to make the frames for the drawer fronts. The pieces were narrow and some were small so I set up a featherboard to help safely guide the pieces past the cutter. They turned out nice. The drawer fronts will have flat panels. I could have used either plywood or mdf but NO! Instead, I glued up some short pieces of poplar, planed them to almost 3/8 inch thick, then ran them through the drum sander. Next, it was cut to final size, then rout a rabbit in the rear so the panels would fit i...
between my constant war with my phone and losing pictures and forgetting to even do much posting on this blog they are few and far between. Not to mention putting a lot of overtime at work and life in general..you all know how that goes. it’s not a big deal anyway, I am an insomniac so this gives me something to do while I am up all night.. I almost bought a new/used 14×24 shed this past weekend, but i didn’t get back with the sellers quick enough and they sold it late sat...
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...

For my first video, I show how I made a hand screw clamp. This is actually the first of the videos I’ll be putting out in English and Esperanto. http://youtu.be/-2OktYszZDU To find the Esperanto video, look in the Ligneroj channel.
Originally i was going to include my adventures in vise making, into my blog about my new work bench. But the farther along i got and the more mistakes i made, the more i realized it should be separated. Here was my goal:1. build a leg vise that is extremely strong and worked well.2. Not to spend a fortune (ie +$300 for the BenchCraft kind)3. Try out some new ideas – could i use regular threaded rod? – is there a better way to make the stop on the bottom part of the ...
Howdy, I added all of my little U-Turns to the top and here is where I start this Blog. If you have any disparities in your measurements, Here is where they make an appearance. I have to add a 4 inch long piece of Curly Maple here but it’s wider than one inch because the rest of my strips were less than one inch wide. I cut a piece to length then I used a series of stopblocks and clamps to shave it to the exact width. Easy Glue up around all four corners. Once I got back to...
It’s now 24.9. It all started on 26.8. (with renting a sement mixer. It took only 6 hours for us to get the slab done.) Since then allmost every day has been a workday. Maby 3 days has been lazy day with only 2-3hours of work. Still. I started to be quite fedup. Rest of the work is a piece of cake: digging a ditch for the rain water. I’ll put a tube on the bottom and fill with gravel 008. The “door” from the old ‘pihatto’. Pihatto is the house for the hors...
Hey everybody, I started a forum topic to get some ideas for Christmas gifts this year. I decided to try my hand at making some 3D Tumbling Block Cutting Boards like this one by lanwater. I found a blog by degoose with a very good write up on the process. I have never blogged about anything before so I thought this would be a good project to start with. So I hope you guys will enjoy this. Thanks, Jayson
