:O) I am a bit excited. I finally have a set of GRR-Rippers in the shop. I have been wanting one for a long time. So I put together this video to show you just a couple reasons why I am pumped up about these helpful shop accessories. Not only are they keeping me safe, but they are allowing me the opportunity to perform tasks I couldn’t perform before… That in itself has got me doing backflips… lol Here is a look at the video
Why Square?As a complete novice I was always mystified by the idea of turning rough lumber into square lumber. It was hard to visualize, though I had read many articles. I thought that I would give any of you new to this aspect a glimpse of the process. The value: Start with square lumber = better chance of square project. Plus you don’t have to buy dimensional lumber from THE MAN. The VideoWe shot a little video/ stills of ourselves squaring stock for our kitchen cabinet drawers....
I have not really been woodworking all that long. I have actually owned a sawmill longer than I have been making any finished wood projects, long story. I have debated making a proper bench for some time. My old/first bench was a row of kitchen cabinets I took out on a remodel I did as a contractor with a solid plank on top. Everyone has different needs, I tried to design mine to fit the work I do. If I need to I can easily make modifications, as is I am calling it “done for now”....
I’ve built a bed for my oldest daughter and one for the wife and I. My youngest, finally on her own after college with a job and an apartment requested a bed too. My first was a raised panel oak bed. Ours is a maple platform with storage beneath it. This one will be very different. A floating platform bed. She requested Walnut and curly cherry. I went to look over the wood at Highland Woods in NH and decided that the curly cherry had very little contrast to the walnut so I chose to u...

As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...
Two days before Christmas, my wife casually mentions that she would like a jewelry box. Hmmm, don’t think the timing was very good. Having completed the 2×4 project, I decided to try to put together a jewelry box from the small pieces of wood laying around in my shop. I had a decent amount of 1/2” cherry, some figured maple, some oak, and a small amount of paduk. After spending a few days laying out a design and seeing if I had enough wood, I started cutting and gluing.Th...

Like most of you out there, I think my mother is the most amazing woman on the planet, and I wanted to find a way to express that to her. My mom’s birthday is on January 2nd, I feel very bad that she always seems to get short changed on the birthday celebration because everyone is tired from Xmas and New Years. I wanted to give her a very personal present this year to show how important she is too me. I was considering a jewelery box and when I saw this project in FWW, I decided ...
