The last time I sat down and shared my insane ramblings, I was giddy with excitement over a very small, very simple trophy I was working on. It was so simple, in fact, that the only tools it required were a drill and a sander. And it turned out great—except for the actual inscription, which arrived at the wrong size and I had create something temporary. I threw a few pictures up of the final product, but I’ll be adding something to the Project Section soon. In the meantime&...
From Top to Bottom: Reed Diffuser (made in China) – where else(qty 3) hand-carved Long Sweet Acacia ChopStickin’sOnly reason I chose to show the “man-made” one was to show how close I could come to achieving a strait result. I cut the in this case small limbs of the Acacia tree, I scraped the bark off, the tape the stick to a “strait stick” I know there are a few “kinks” in them but that is what makes this project more changeling, in time I h...

I have been in my new shop a little over a year now, but it seems to have a mind of its own.I have been rearranging equipment and adding new storage. Most all of the Items are close to finished, Most of the shop cabinets still need drawer faces. I am quite happy with the way they are working out. My main bench has a 5” thick maple top, with a Chestnut base cabinet. Also directly behind my main work area are my Tool Chest, and my Cutter storage/hardware storage Chest. As well as st...
Ok, so I am new to wood working, I did a couple very simple projects such as a farm house style table and after built a matching bench for one side, I am a grown man and refuse to sit on a bench so I decided that eventually I would design and build some farmhouse chairs, I didn’t think I was quite ready yet so I built (I am still finishing it) a farmhouse bed. Any body noticing a trend yet? I really like the farmhouse style furniture. Well when I first started I was just u...
I’ve remodeled the entire house. Always a work in progress but mostly done. Ripped out walls, replaced paneling with sheetrock/paint, replaced carpets with hardwood floors, I made new kitchen cabinets, all moldings… etc. I’ve blogged most of it as I went along. The hole in the ground:We have a cellar that takes up about half the floor area of the house. The rest is a slab. It is a washroom, storage, houses the hot water tank, pump tank, etc. It’s finished off pretty...
Here’s a little idea I had last night, & decided to work out a way I could do it. It’s a Fully Off Axis Stemmed Goblet, where the whole of the stem is a half inch (13mm) off set from the cup & the base. To do this, I roughed to round, formed the cup, hollowed out (leaving the walls rather thicker than usual) & finished the inside & outside of the cup. (I should have also finished the shoulder of the stem section too…I’ll know for next time!) I then ...
I got the lower supports, hinge brackets, and the backstop on. Check it out!
I woke up early this morning with an idea of using Legos to quickly build an incremental table saw jig. This jig helped me quickly produce a new clamp rack that incorporates my new parallel clamps. The 1×8 line pieces acted as stop blocks for crosscutting dadoes. (in the future, I’ll use 2×8 pieces to reduce play). When one cut was complete, I removed that line, scooted the board to the next line, and cut another. For my parallel clamps, a line every 6 circles was perfec...
Got the support rack glued up and weight tested. Watch the video to pick up a few tips and tricks to getting it flat and square. This has been a really fun project so far! Let’s hope it works and can be useful for myself and for others!
