I have sleep apnea and currently just use a simple stand for my CPAP machine. I thought is would be wise to build a nightstand to put it in to help reduce the noise of the pump hum to help give my wife a good nights sleep as well so I designed a nightstand to contain my CPAP machine in a felt lined area to make it virtually sound proof as well as a drawer to contain all the spares and bits and bobs. Have a look.
I finally got some editing done on a bunch of footage of working this piece of Maple that I rescued from the fire wood pile last year. It is going toward the box build I am working on. I have no real plan, just a vague idea and I am letting the wood take me it’s own way to get there. https://youtu.be/ZWDVLtvamCY
I was determined to lean to cut dovetails last year so I asked Santa for a few tools to get it done. I was really good last year so he brought me a dovetail marking gauge, a marking knife, and a dovetail saw all from Veritas. I’ve been pretty busy so far this month so I made my first try two weeks ago after I was done with my shop lighting project. A rookie mistake here….. So today I tried it again and this time I started by spending an hour or so over two days j...
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. I am not computer savvy hence why she is going to post it for me. I am VERY excited about this project and I have taken it to my local woodworkers club- Diable Woodworkers for show and tell. Can’t wait for everyone to see it! Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!! Sincerely,Glenn Holsworth
Well, got the armrests done.. The square part didn’t ake all that long to chop out. The round hole? Forstner bit. So, when the armrest settles down over the tenon on the top of the front post, the post will get “housed” in the round hole….more places to add glue. I also chopped a mortise in each of the rear posts. Armrest would then slip into that mortise, and onto the tenon. I drilled a through hole through that rear post, in the center of the mor...
Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times. It has consumed my shop time since February. That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months. Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. When I was ready to head back out to the shop, I discovered the Walnut fairy had left two pieces of walnut ready for work. She’s pretty good at gluing too…After a few passes with the hand plane I’m sure the...
In this project video I show you how to make a baking board.
FINALLY! First, needed some rebates for the screen’s frame to sit in. Don’t have a wide enough bit for the router, BUT, I do happen to have a couple planes that seem to work nicely This one is a Traditional Chinese Edge Plane I build awhile ago. Set the fence for 1/2” and push it along until it is almost all the way down to …3/16” deep. Then go over it with an Iron plane, since it does have a depth stop Hmmm, Noodles, anyone? Ok, rebates all lo...

Happy Monday o/ I recently moved from a teeny one-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn Heights to a house in the sticks a few hours north. It’s a lot of space to fill. I get to have a reasonable dresser, a bed AND couch instead of a ratty old futon, etc. I started furniture shopping and my jaw hit the floor. I half jokingly suggested to my favorite bartender that I could outfit a wood shop for the cost of the dresser I wanted and make my own ugly as sin but sturdy and functional furn...
