Well I am making some progress abeit that it is slow. I was in limbo wondering what I was going to do for the false drawer front material. I am trying to keep my cost down and really didn’t want to purchase mahogany to make the fronts out of. I was browsing around one of the hardwood stores that I purchaase from over in Memphis and got to talking to one of the sales reps and told him what I was trying to do and he put me on a species of wood that I had never used before and said that...

It has been some time since I have updated my blog on my progress. The bench is coming along nicely. I began working on the table top and am learning a lot as I progress. The top requires a lot of work. I don’t see myself building another bench for a long time. I am glad that I thought about what I would need before ever beginning. Since I started my bench, I have seen other’s benches on this site that look great. It has made me think about a wish list for the next bench,...
I have been asked to do a tutorial on how I made my Box Joint Bracelet I will be trying to go Step-By-Step and not leave anything out. I know I am missing a couple of pics but will try and explain things as good as I can. The first thing I would like to address is SAFETY There are many ways to do almost any process, depending on how you were taught/learned. Please be VERY carfull when useing your tools. I would hate to see anyone get hurt. Onward: I only used one piece of wood f...
Finnished the Plaque! Well it is finnally done. I kept getting side tracked with other things around the house. This is going to a dear freind of my wife and mine. He has been running the center for the blind in Yuma,AZ for the last 25 years. He is retireing on June 27th. This startd as an “Unknown Wood / Unknown Project” and turned into a dedication. I want to thank everyone who helped this design come into being. Thank You. The Angel is made up of the following woods...
Now that the sides are sized and cut to length, it is time for cutting feet and marking up to get ready for dados, rabbits and dovetails (dados, rabbits and dovetails, oh my! Sorry Dorthy.). The feet of the cupboard are cut into the sides and two lower front stiles. Notice that the “front” foot is slightly narrower than the “rear” foot. This 3/4” difference will be made up by the stile after it is attached. I drew the shape I wanted on some scrap 1/8”...
I decided I need a nice place to keep some china what-not that has started to accumulate around here. My parents keep dropping off stuff that they have stored at their house, now it is getting stored in mine… After much looking around and cogitation on the matter, I decided the first thing to make would be a cupboard, specifically a step-back cupboard. These are open on the top, and a closed cupboard on the bottom. Sometimes two pieces, other times one. Later I’ll look into...
Sorry I’m late.. but alot has been going on. Jumping back in Today were making the TOP… Only cut what you can glue up (trust me on this, Movement will kill you (and me I had to add 2 more sticks after I tossed several I just cut last weekend that did the Watusi on me and I decided it was cheaper to just spend another 16 bucks and get a pair of 10’ start over pieces) So, The Glue really needs to dry for at least 4 hours. On a good weekend I can really only make a pa...
Well, I was asked to put together a blog on how I made my segmentd ring. Since I had to make a new one for myself, (first one too small) I thought I would go ahead and do a step by step picture tutorial. My first time ever doing something like this , so hope it comes out OK. Here goes; Wood Selection The first step in making the ring is deciding what woods to use. As we all know, the selection is quite large. One of the most important things is color, but the most important is hardne...
