My daughter asked recently if I recalled the little ‘Note-In-A-Bottle’ ship I made for her when she was about seven. Like I could ever forget how thrilled she was when we actually heard back from it! It was a little ‘ship’ about a foot long rigged with a weighted keel underneath to keep it upright and a mast with a small sail to move it along with the wind. We mounted a plastic medicine bottle on top with her handwritten note inside. It was placed in the ocean off s...
A cross-cut sled should be one of the first jigs that a woodworker makes for the tablesaw. It’s more accurate that the typical miter gage and is safer to use. I’ve made a few versions over the years, but have not created one for the the Porter Cable table saw purchased three years ago. There are a couple things that set this version apart from the many variations seen on YouTube and various websites (or even Norm’s). First, the runners for the miter slots are made ...
Last week I made two hydraulic cylinders. The cylinders should be able to hold the crane boom in position. Therefor I additional made a “clamping” ring from ash. First I tried to do this with a rubber ring but finally I prefered wood. (I,m making two cranes at the same time, that’s why sometimes you she two cylinders) Below you can see how it was done. Thanks for watching.
While I cannot be called a die hard fan of pocket hole joinery, I’ll admit it has some uses. Such a use came about today as I was completing a project (to be posted in a day or two). This method of making pocket holes without an expensive jig I saw in a video by Steve Carmichael. (the link starts the video right at the part I’m talking about). [Above] These are the tools I used to do this procedure. Your choices may vary. I’m using a 3/8 inch spade bit, 1/8 in. twis...
I posted my completed bar project last December;http://lumberjocks.com/projects/160074I had the idea of a bar mat made out of those rubber stubby holders you get on holidays in gift shops.Anyway I had a collection of over a hundred to choose from.so I decided to stitch a few together (that’s hand stitch because I couldn’t find any volunteers with a sewing machine).Lucky I didn’t do any closeup photos to show my less than average sewing ability, but from a distance they don...

I’ve been living in the natural world of Rivers Inlet, British Columbia my whole life and I’ve never found anything that astounded me more than this. As a beachcomber, when I find a slide it’s a perfect treasure for me to sift through but what I found the day I came across this slide, completely blew my mind. At first sight, the log was a beautiful old growth red cedar – already a gem in itself. But once I started milling, the unique treasure I discovered within ...
I recently posted a video on YouTube on how to make an expanding trivet. This trivet is easy to make an a good way to use up some hardwood scraps.
