Based on the response to my recent post of the Pembroke table, there seems to be a fair number of woodworkers at LJ who may not be aware of this group. It’s the Mecca for those interested in period American furniture. This is where you will find the real deal. I was blissfully unaware of the group until I attended a couple marquetry classes with Patrick Edwards and Patrice Lejeune at the American School of French Marquetry in San Diego in June 2014. It was when Patrick casually me...
So as most of you know I finished my cabinet a few weeks ago save the drawers. Since my mother’s garage cabinets that some of you have seen, I have had an outright war with drawers. I cannot seem to get them right, ever. I have tried the expensive soft close all the way to the under and side mount white roller slidey ones. This time was no different. I bought those crappy white roller wheel sliders because they were cheap and I wanted to try something new (not to mention it was fo...
I built a particle separator that used a thien baffle in 5 gallon buckets. It has a small footprint, all one vertical unit, rolls around, has onboard hose storage and works great. Watch video.
Here’s a video about the extension I made to support stock on the left side of my tablesaw. Easy to adjust and simple to make. Watch video.
Here’s a video of the stationary outfeed extension I added to my contractor style table saw. Watch video.
So I got a wild hair when I was cleaning up my table saw. But first a little background, I have been trying to clean up my shop and make it presentable for pictures and videos. I have been woodworking for 16+ years and I feel confident that I could teach. So I thought the logical place for me to start would be some on-line videos and see where it went from there. It is a slow and arduous process to take a woodworking shop that has been used for years as a factory of furniture making and turn ...
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...

I was watching one of the You Tube channels I subscribe to and found a neat way to clean saw blades. It works very well and I had one of those “Why didn’t I think of that” moments. A great tip I got from the TabLeft Workshop channel that I tried. https://youtu.be/BZ-d1MdbQI8
Part of every workshop success is being organized and having templates on hand to trace and cut out, my shop is no different, for the longest time I kept my templates stuffed in a box, as of lately I have been getting request for shelves, rather than dig out these templates I created the “I SEE IT BOARD” this way a person can see the options that are available, it will be easier for me as well because I will be able to grab what I need and when I am done I can easily put it back ...
