A Hard Year in 2015 Wife's Courageous Fight with Colon Cancer and the Eulogy I wrote for Her Funeral

01-21-2016 08:27 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 36 comments »

For most of 2015, I don’t remember posting much, or writing much in my blog. I don’t even really remember thinking much about doing it. I Just didn’t have the energy for that. We did a full-on fight against Colon Cancer, after it was discovered as the reason for my wife’s cough that wouldn’t go away. This was quite a shock for both of us, and the adjustment took some time, and was exhausting. Shelli had a bad cough that started about Thanksgiving in 2014, ...

Splinters of thought #7: How Do You Measure up?

10-30-2015 01:01 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Recently there have been articles discussing tape measure maintenance, selection and how to use them in the shop. My opinion is to use them at the cutoff table for large crosscuts with a radial arm or chop saw, and leave them there. There should not be a dedicated place in your woodworking tool cabinet for a tape measure. The closest I would come would be a fabric tape to measure curved work. I worked in construction for a while and used a tape for everything, I just don’t see their pla...

In this video you can see how I typically make and install dovetail keys. Dovetail keys are used to keep a crack from opening up any more, they also add an artistic touch visually. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JPtsz8xOgU

Around the Shop #10: Stanley #55 Set Up Follow Up

09-13-2015 07:17 PM by Mosquito | 4 comments »

I guess my definition of “Soon” is somewhat lax lol I had mentioned before (5 months ago, in this blog post I had taken some extra pictures and I would do a follow up on how I set up the various skates of the #55 to make the molding profile I had been testing out. So this is the profile I had been using:   There are up to 3 skates on the #55 ( I used all 3 on this profile, but only two with the smaller version of it). First is the skate that’s on the main ...

22'' Wide slabs to dining table top

06-27-2015 07:11 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 5 comments »

This is a quick run down of one way to go from rather large Walnut slabs to a beautiful dining table top. By using large vintage woodworking machinery and new world wood working tools I take two 22’’ wide 2.5’’ thick Walnut slabs from rough raw lumber to a soon to be dining table top. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCoSTnI1JpA

Flatten Veneer with Hot Aluminum Plates! #1: I really want to know what you think about this!

06-01-2015 02:48 AM by CharlieK | 6 comments »

I just completed a video that shows How to Flatten Veneer using hot aluminum plates. This really is an amazing technique! I am very impressed by how well it works. My friend Tom Schrunk showed me this technique and he was nice enough to participate in the video with me. I did upload a very short video from the Handworks event, but that was just kind of a quickie. I really put a LOT of effort into this one! I tried some new things in this video and it would really help me to know wha...
