No job should be this much fun. I know I have said it before, and that some of you may think that I am exaggerating, but I find if anything, I tone it down. This past week and a half should be proof of that. In the last week and a half, I drew up seven new candle trays as well as a new project for the August issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and pretty much got all the prototypes finished. I still have one more tray that I didn’t even really show you yet, but I wil...
Today I am just going to post a couple of pictures. I made good strides yesterday, and I can see the finish line in sight. Some of the pictures aren’t the best, but after everything is finished, I will be sure to get the lighting as good as I can and take some really nice ones. The first tray that I will show is the “Love, Hope and Faith” tray. I did this one in 1/2” ash and even though it is probably the simplest of this group of designs, I think it looks pretty...
I spent the day yesterday working on the final version of bunnies. This version is once again a silhouette, but it is going to be painted using a couple of nice techniques. I spent the afternoon working on the base coating and I used some crackle medium to give them a crackled finish. In the past, I have used the crackle medium with a dark under coat so that the crackles really stand out. This time however, I decided to use the bright pastel colors underneath for a more subtle effect. I a...
So a few weeks ago i posted a picture of the cabinet I made for American Woodworker Magazine. Well finally I’ve got the video done. Hope you enjoy it.
Over the past week I’ve been building a much needed kitchen table. It is a country style table based off of Ana White’s plan. I have made a few modifications to it to suit my own personal preferences (and my wife’s). So far I have the full construction complete except for plugging any screw holes. Here is the most recent picture.You can catch up on the build by clicking these links.The PlansDay 1Day 2
My mom has always loved living in the country (all her life) but was never really big on raising cattle herself. However, she still likes viewing cows out of the kitchen window whenever she gets the chance. Unfortunately, the house she lives in now doesn’t have a kitchen window so she came up with this great idea one day and asked me for some help. She knew a rancher, friend of hers, was tearing down an old house and asked him if she could have a few of the old windows. He said t...

We continue on with the build and get our dados sorted out.
This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at email@example.com.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686
I started a build on a Jelly Cupboard for the house the other night. So far I have been able to get the Carcass built and dry fitted most of the components. I used biscuits to join the sides together. From Windows Live Writer From Windows Live Writer I milled all the parts something I might not do next time around since I ended up re cutting a couple of parts. From Windows Live Writer I setup all the mortises and routed them out. This was my first time doing this and did pretty ...
