Finally got to the point where I could try the waterslide transfer decals out. David’s instructions were much clearer than what came with the product. Having already used a different first coat, than in his demo (oops), and not being sure of compatability issues (not to mention wanting to wait for a few coats of spray finish to dry) I tried using them unprotected (as per the manufacturers instructions). They worked great – slid off perfectly. I didn’t find them too ...
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
A few weeks back, I did a horse project for a customer. She sent over a picture of a painting hanging on her wall and wanted a piece done of this painting. I absolutely loved the picture that she sent over and was extremely excited to start this project. There is a few ways that I could have done this project for my customer 1) Making the pieces follow the musculature of the horse’s body or 2) Having the pieces follow the shading in the picture. I decided to do this piece with option two in h...
What’s happening in the shop for July 10, 2010 . Today I should spend most of the day in the back showroom doing the final assembly for Blake’s murphy bed, bookcase, and desk. I’ll also be taking pictures to write the assembly instructions for it all.For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:
Yet another project in the making. My wife asked me to build her a scrap book cabinet to put all her many papers and books, glues, tapes, ribbons, etc. Enough to build a 5 ft. by 5 ft. by 14” deep with about 20ish slots for paper, 10 drawers, ribbon holders (which I haven’t quite figured out yet) shelves to hold the many albums she has already made. Using 3/4 ply. with oak veneer. (Lowes on sale) and press board 1/2 thick. Also plan to use some oak facing on the drawers, and po...
custom,furnitureThis blog is on my website, but I thought I’d post here as well. It doesn’t have a whole lot to do with woodworking other than how it relates to treating customers, but it’s kind of a funny story. re’-bar- a steel bar or rod used to reinforce concreteker-fuff’-le- an annoyingly trendy synonym for a dustup Not so long ago my wife, the sweet and lovely Penny, and I went shopping for a new bedMore… and ventured into one of the ubiquitous ...

This is a quick commission I landed last week. The gal asked me to finish it asap so she can open up her new store. Cabinetry is one of those wonderful things which is really easy to do when you’re properly setup, and make a lot of money doing it. I’m not gouging her, but I’m definitely making my minimum hourly on this project. The design is simple enough. Divided storage areas for a reciept printer, wrapping paper, shopping bags, etc. The larger of the two lower left cub...
Creating custom woodworking pieces becomes art when I find passion behind a piece. My son got a new truck recently and like most young men, this became his pride and joy. My wife and I have often joked with him that he was going to wash the paint right off. For Christmas, I wanted to make him something special. I took a picture of his truck with my phone one evening while he was over for dinner and used this photograph to create a 3D woodworking picture of his truck. I wanted the truck to...
