Many of the portable power tools that I purchase come in a tool case. The tool manufacturers presume that I’ll be taking the tools on the road. A reasonable assumption for many. But my tools are used near 100 percent in my workshop. Sometimes they venture into my house, but I don’t need the case for those instances. In this video I offer a reason for throwing the tool cases away and creating custom workshop storage to better utilize the prize (i.e., limited) shop space....
On the router table, cleaned up the face of the peghead and finished the rest of the truss rod routing, and drilled the hole through the neck for the electronics (totally stoked, I drilled the diagonal by hand and managed to hit with my ¼” pilot hole dead on, then worked up to ½” total). Then with a deep breath and a few carefully placed Dominos, glued the sucker up. Daniel is way stoked.
We’re using a Festool Domino DF700EQ to help in the glue up of a large table top, for the local fire hall. We decided to add the floating tenons to help keep these large pieces of 2’’ oak and cherry flat during glue up. Hope you enjoy and as always thanks for having a look.
Have not been here much in the last year or so. I got a new position at work which has taken up more time in a good way. I have actually built a bunch more of the kitchen cabinets which I will post later. I am finally building some removable sliding windows for the porch. I put some fixed windows in a few years ago, but it was long enough that I completely forgot how to do the job smoothly. So I am going to document it this time. In this blog: How to make the frames. Here are two of the...
After posting my “Floor Dominoes” project, several readers expressed interest in how the dominoes were made. I wrote the following article and, with minor differences, it has now been posted on both Lumberjocks and on Rockler Woodworking’s “Buzz Saw” site...Set size: Mine is a double-nine rather than a double-six set, even though more than twice the work was involved. The additional work is because a double-six set has only 28 pieces and 168 pips, whereas a do...
Several days ago, I was asked to rebuild a few storm door inserts destroyed by some overzealous dogs. Dogs – 1 || Door Insert – 0 I hesitated a bit because it seemed liked a boring production item, but I am not one to usually turn down a woodworking project. No better softwood So I got some high-grade Douglass Fir and went to work replicating the screened versions. The mangled model was made with bridal joints in each corner and sep...
Last time I built cabinets, I used my biscuit joiner. I thought about going with it again, but since I have a Domino I said what the hey: Go for it.Solid panel waiting for mortisesThe cabinets have 5 identical rails: Two at the top for attaching the counters, one to act a a face frame nailer, and two at the back for securing to the wall during installation. There is also a bottom shelf. I start by marking the approximate locations of the rails so that I put them in the right place. The si...
Just to give the payoff early, here’s a video, no sound, skip to the last third if you want to see the fold-up action: I like model railroads. When I was a kid, my dad worked with a guy named Bill Kennedy who had the Ramapo Valley Railroad in his basement. It was HO scale, super highly detailed, snaked through several rooms, had walk-around throttles, and was featured in a magazine or two.. Years later I picked up an N scale train to run around the Christmas three, picked up a copy...

For the cabinets, I wanted movable shelves. I was told that the Euro style round pins “looked tacky”, and I didn’t want to run tracks, but I’d run across a note by Charles Wilson suggesting the use of Dominos for shelf pins, and that seemed like a great idea. I cut a strip of wood the width of the spacing I wanted, cut it in half, put a lip on each one so that I could place it on the edge of my carcase sides and it’d protrude over at 90 degrees. Then it was j...
