I determined the centerline of the chop and leg and clamped the chop directly to the leg. I transferred the hole locations to the chop. The it was off to the drill press. Simple. While at Marc Adam...

A Strategy for Woodworking #7: Finishing Makes the Difference

1 day ago by Gary Rogowski | 0 comments »

How do people engage with your furniture? They look at the form first of course. If they like the shape ofa piece, then they approach it. They eye it to see the wood and the sheen of it. Always, without fail, the very next thing they do is touch the piece. Everyone loves to put their hands on wood because it’s warm, it’s inviting. And if there’s a finish on the wood, then what folks will be touching is that finish. You have to pay attention first to how that finish looks and next how it feels...

18 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

I had been assembling the small drawers and I needed to glue the walnut fronts to the maple drawer boxes.
