Final finishing up of the woodworking part of this project! I attach the hutch to the subframe, and then that assembly to the top. I also make the interior back and the back of the hutch. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! http://youtu.be/0wOl6AJZw9w
I have been salvaging wood from my job sites. The latest was some cedar cut offs, so decided to cut them into very thin slabs of about 1/4 and see what i could make. So far i have made a tray to contain silver ware in the silverware drawer and a large tray for the other utensils in that drawer and a pencil box. I am thinking of making larger items so have been joining the pieces which measure about 2 1/2 X 15 X 1/4” to make larger pc of about 15 X 15 X 1/4. Joining these pc’s h...

Finally got a chance to use the Stanley No. 8 I posted a blog entry about a few days ago. Gotta say it’s pretty sweet. I’m sure there are others that may be able to tune it to a finer degree, but when I remember the frustration of the first time I ever tried to use a hand plane it feels really good. And what a huge difference sharpening makes!! Today I was using it to even out the glue ups on my new workbench legs. I took a couple of photos to share. From Sawdust From Sawdu...
I had a great and satisfying day. One box I wasnt totaly pleased with I left in my shop so I saw it everytime I entered so I could assess what I wanted to do with it and I finaly end up taking a hammer and knocking the feet off it and now Im super pleased with it!

The last three days I have been doing nothing but running the planner and joiner creating eight 30 gallon bags of saw dust and I still have another days’ worth left. The big question is what to do with all of that saw dust? My father told me to ask the high school baseball coach if he wants it. I guess that they used to put it on the in-field to absorb the water after it rained. I will let you know what I find out because I know that we all have problems getting rid of saw dust. I have 95% of...
Sorry I’m late.. but alot has been going on. Jumping back in Today were making the TOP… Only cut what you can glue up (trust me on this, Movement will kill you (and me I had to add 2 more sticks after I tossed several I just cut last weekend that did the Watusi on me and I decided it was cheaper to just spend another 16 bucks and get a pair of 10’ start over pieces) So, The Glue really needs to dry for at least 4 hours. On a good weekend I can really only make a pa...
My lovely wife was on me to make a simple box to hold a planter, so I went out to the shop today and whipped this up out of some old, unfinished flooring pieces. Dead simple with one DT per side. She wanted it rustic so it was the perfect chance to try and cut them quick and see how it all fit together. For a straight of the saw tail sides and a chop to the base line, with virtually no paring, I was more than pleased! Finished it all off with a bit of BLO and 3 coats of amber shellac and a bi...
I made a little more progress this week. I now have the stretchers cut and fit. The first thing to do is to cut the mortises. It took a lot of fiddling and was pretty slow going with the mortises that are 2 1/2” deep by 3/4”. I could only get away with going about 3/16” w/ each pass that’s a lot of passes to get 2 1/2” deep on eight mortises. Next up was the tenons. These went much faster. Here they are roughed in using a dado on the table saw. I d...
