Having previously varnished the units to match the bed, I started early today, the first job was preparing the drawer fronts, I decided that because they are recessed it would not have looked right, to route the edges, I sanded them up to 320 grit, then drilled and fitted the handle screws in place. They then had a coat of varnish, and were left to dry. I made some stops, out of scrap mahogany to stop the drawers coming all the way out, they are just held to the back of each drawer by a si...
Part of every workshop success is being organized and having templates on hand to trace and cut out, my shop is no different, for the longest time I kept my templates stuffed in a box, as of lately I have been getting request for shelves, rather than dig out these templates I created the “I SEE IT BOARD” this way a person can see the options that are available, it will be easier for me as well because I will be able to grab what I need and when I am done I can easily put it back ...
My goodness the mornings go fast! It is hard to believe that I have already been up a couple of hours. I love my mornings, as many of you already know, because it seems that I am able to accomplish so much in those first few quiet hours of the day. Yesterday was a really productive day. It was one of those (rare) times when everything went 'as it should' and I was able to tick off just about everything that I had on my list – and then some. I filled orders, did errands, hel...
How this promise of a captain’s bed came about was almost an accident. My bride-to-be is used to having a large bed, California King, to be exact. All I had was a paltry queen-sized mattress on a relatively low frame. She commented that I probably stuck out over both ends when I slept (I’m 6’ 4”), and I had to agree with her. She also did not (understandably) want to share a bed with me that I had shared with my last (deceased) wife. So, I went and bought a Cal-Ki...
Between honey-do’s, I am taking on a project that the client is actually willing to pay for my time and materials to convert an old cabinet into a wine/liquor cabinet that he hopes to sell on e-bay or somewhere, that is, if I can quote him a price that will leave him some room for profit. I brought the cabinet home to measure up and repair some old structural damage and here it is on the bench. The cabinet measures approximately 30” high, 23” wide, and 19” deep, made of Mahogan...

This will be a gift for my wife. Years ago I rescued some wood at an old mill dumpsite that was going to burn it all to make room for a housing development. The table is made in Honduras Mahogany was some of that lumber. The center drawer is made in rescued Cherry. A friend of mine was on a construction job where a cherry tree was being taken down. He saved it from the chipper & brought it to me. Dovetail You Tube https://youtu.be/7XaxovjV574 Mark Dovetail https://youtu.be/goRf...
