The Holsworth Woodworks Family Blog #3: Check back for my latest completed project- Zebrawood Cabinet!
Hey friends! Just wanted to update everyone and let you guys know that I will be visiting my daughter soon so that I can upload my new cabinet made from Zebrawood.

Can’t wait for everyone to see it! Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!! Sincerely,Glenn Holsworth
A simple project made of oak with decorative walnut top and walnut splines for the door. -once I get pictures, I will post them.
Sam Maloof inspired rocking chair #2: First try at the Maloof joint **Project on hold pending move**
Not having done this before it was a bit of a challenge to do I hope the joint is tight enough after the glue is in the joints and its clamped up. This is just the dry fit for now.In the two photos below are the left and right front legs. Today my 1/4” down cut spiral bit came so I will be routing the holes for the back slats then next week when my new band saw blade gets here I will cut the seat profile, sand and scoop the seat then comes the front legs.One thing I realized is you ...
First, I have to apologize for this multi-part series not being posted as I went along. I am starting posting this series now that I am 97% done with the whole thing. As a two year long lurker on LJs, I know that if I’d been posting these as I went along, I would have had lots of helpful, timely feedback al the way. I probably would have avoided some mistakes and been more efficient as well. But I didn’t. So why am I posting now? I’m doing so as way to give back to this comm...
Not sure how to start this, i’ve never done a blog before and i’m not the best at writing/speaking LOL. So here goes. Many years ago my grandpa made a coffee table for us, i’ve been trying to figure it out and my best guess is between the years of 1972-1974. It has passed through all our family at one point or another, but the last several years its been in storage because its a hard table to make work in ones living area. You see its very large about 6’ long to be ...
What should be the first entry in this series is my really simple table saw panel cutting and edge jointing jig. This is my my take on a mortise jig for a plunge router. I wanted to keep it as simple to build and as inexpensive as possible, but I also wanted it to produce good results for a rookie because I was going to use it for my first attempt and a M&T joint. Now that I’ve verified that it works well, I’ll probably add a toggle clamp or two for holding the work. T...
Late last year, before I put the saw away for the winter, a piece of the casting on the tablesaw broke. It was causing some vibration and the blade to move side to side a bit when adjusting height. Not good in conjunction with zero clearance inserts. Anyway, it is getting warm again and time to get the saw ready for what I hope will be a productive summer. The “key” as I am calling it had to be fixed. There are 2 parts that mount on a shaft and are keyed together you can see ...
First of a Series on a Contemporary Clock posted in my projects. Hope you enjoy.
I finished up the project in this session. Since it sticks out, I will comment on my non standard design – i.e. drawers in the back. I originally did this as an attempt to fix an issue in my shop lay out – stupid move. Fortunately, the flaw is not as annoying as I was worried since the INCRA Router Top has you standing at the side (facing the fence) vs standing at the long edge. So I started here And ended here Steps I followed in today’s session1. Dust Collec...
