What a great Sunday I had. And since the J-E-T-S were on I didn’t miss watching any football. Just kidding, gotta give them credit, they still had a nice year. Anyhow, back to my nice day. My compatriot John T, came over today to help me with some odds and ends. First, the cover of my Ridgid drill press was broken off where it screws into the top. So we lathered it up with some epoxy, and that seems to have fixed it. Also, John gave me a tutorial in cleaning up old hand saws. Here...

GREENE AND GREENE FRAME IN HONDURAN MAHOGANY AND EBONY #5: glued in the ebony pins, alcohol dyed and oil stained .... >evil grin<
glued in the ebony pins, dark oak aniline alcohol dyed and Japanese dryer jazzed-up Minmax red mahogany oil stained …. Exact same stain I use on my quartersawn oak…. note that all of the non-face board edges,chamfers etc were 24grit edge sanded on my ole 6×80 2 horse…I like the texture and think it adds more visual interest and another plus it becomes a couple shades darker.Every thing else is sanded to 400grit and rubbed out with steel wool….which is another pro...

Hi… Beginning a new project and have the concept drawn in SketchUp. SketchUp is great by the. I enjoy the design phase of a project and have done a lot of pencil drawings with T-Square and ruler. Once I decided to spend the time to learn SketchUp I was surprised how quickly I could produce meaningful 3-d drawings. Anyways, a pair of bedside tables to match some of the design elements of our simple sleigh bed. Hence the shape of the legs. A small drawer with a bottom shelf seeme...
day started with a snow blizzard mixed with slush. no fun at cleaning that up as it’s super heavy. but that also mean that it was above freezing temperatures. today I was able to glue up the drawer fronts. these are mostly maple, with some mahogany strips. the mahogany strips are there as a design feature that helps blend in the drawer pulls which will be installed next and will also be made of mahogany – hence the blend in. I added some 1/8” strips of mahogany and map...
I am building a coffee table that is based on a piece I built in 2007. The first table has a solid top made from Sapelle and a base where the apron and legs were from Mahogany. The new table will have the same general shape-in all sections-top, apron and legs. The changes will include, walnut for the legs and apron, and a top that is veneered with inlayed designs. The carving’s on the legs and aprons will be different too. I began taking pictures of this second table when I was ...
A local cabinet shop is going out of business and is selling every thing. They also tried at one point to retail lumber but the local market was not there.

It seems like the arched form needs to be lifted off the table by some amount. I’m not sure by how much. My technique in situations like this is choose from a range. Start with too little and keep adding until it seems like too much. Somehwere in between “too little” and “too much” there should be a “just right” or at least a “close enough”!In this case I start adding spacers underneath each end. Here is the range of heights. The wi...
