I thought it would be interesting to try another inexpensive build and decided to re-purpose one of the Home Depot Husky 14” backsaws that sell for a little less than $9 USD. Here it is in its natural environment. On first inspection, you see that its made in the USA (from global components), but is made from high carbon spring steel, is .032” thick and the plate is not etched. The folded steel back of this is my least favorite part, and I debated slotting a piece of brass,...
There is no question about it, ‘at some point during our trek into the world of wood working we are going to need some sort of jig, whether it is a temporary one or a permanent go to Jig. Of course if you google it, you no doubt will get flooded with every type of jig imaginable, go to you tube and you find find countless video’s to build all sorts of nifty jigs. In my wood working most of my jigs are temporary jigs. Pending on what you your self are doing you may need more than o...
Hello lumber jock community. I’d love some advise and pics if possible on this. I’ve been asked to build a conference room table for a small company. I’m on a low budget but want to obviously make a quality top. I made the pedestals already but struggling with the top and budget. My thoughts are to either join oak 3/4” 6X8’s together or a sheet of oak ply and join butter board ends. I was going to pocket hole and glue everything together and case it with 1X3 o...
Admittedly, Tow Mater chairs and well executed portable work benches are both more interesting and practical than my fancy decoration but I am always happy when I build a tool that is received well by my woodworking peers. This chisel plane project is particularly special to me because where I have had several occasions to want one, I have never been willing to purchase one, nor had it occurred to make one until I saw that several other Lumberjocks have made their own and done a nice job o...
Recently, I built a rather large storage unit for my workshop. Once it was built I noticed that there was a big face that could be used as a back drop for my You-Tube videos. I had several ideas but a chalkboard won the day. Now it can be used to draw diagrams, write comments or anything that is interesting. Here is the link to my You-Tube video, (https://youtu.be/RS3n_1miBtg) The material list: One – sheet of plywood (cut to size) One – sheet of OSB (cut to size an...
Some old footage that I put together. Not a complicated or exciting build, but good practice at editing and I got to use some tools. Which is something I love doing. View on YouTube

In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them. After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the ...
