How often have you dined at a restaurant and the waiter or waitress asked you “Would you would like some cracked peppers with your meal?” Probably more than once, right? If you’re like me I answer “Sure. I’d love some.” There’s just something nice about having a good meal with freshly ground salt and pepper. For a long time I have browsed through my various woodworking catalogs and noticed mechanisms for salt and peppermills. Then one day I decided to order the mechanisms and make a se...
I have decided to build my own guitar. It’s something I have wanted to do for a long time and I hope to eventually turn it into a FT hobby someday.. So I finally took that first step this week. I got plans from Chris over at http://www.eguitarplans.com he draws up some really good plans. The body is going to be a 2 piece Solid Mahogany body. I started by cutting the two sides to length about 19” for this guitar so that I had a little extra to play with. Glue U...
I made a trip to my favorite wood supplier. The reason that he’s my favorite is that all of the wood I get is free. I get the scraps, cutoffs, splits etc from his door and window making process. I’ve been collecting Honduras Mahogany in my latest trips. Today one of the pieces had a name on it 6/4 Acajou. That was new to me and in my research is also called Honduras Mahogany some places call it just Genuine Mahogany. Over the last month I’ve probably picked up about 300 B...

Hey everyone,I am in need of some help! I am writing a book called “The Burl Hunter”. I am looking for interested people who are willing to read as I write to help me out. I am not a great writer but I love to teach. What I would like to do is get about 5 people to read and critique the book. Even edit my grammar. I would like 2 people who know about burls just to keep me in check and 3 to just read to learn and see how it flows. I need your input. It is a book that will g...

I wanted to make a tongue drum for a friend who is a musician. I wasn’t too bothered about the tuning etc, I just wanted to try out something new. He could use it as a paper weight if nothing else!! The problem is it is barely audible. The construction is 3/4” oak top with 3/8” mahogany sides and a 1/4” ply bottom. This is based on a plan I found on the Portercable site (posted on this site somewhere, but can’t find it now!). Some questions about this proj...
In the last installment, I showed the latest box I’m working on, it’s now time to make a pair of hinges for it…But, and it seems like there’s always a but, I had a problem with the fitted panel for the lid. When I cut the tenon around the thing, to fit into the side dadoes, I was trying to “sneak up on it”, once, twice, three times and it seemed like nothing was changing. So I gave it one of those “All or Nothing” taps to the Table Saw fence and...
