I will keep things short here today because I have writing to do. I know I promised that the reindeer and sleigh pattern would be ready today, and it may be later on, but I probably won't really have everything done, including the site update, until tomorrow (Thursday). Sometimes things just take longer than expected. I will say though that the pattern will really be a nice one. I spent the day yesterday working on the 26 step-by-step photos that I will include with it. That is ...
Un-Covering an Old Friend ....and so it was in the now of ever, that I heard your sigh of wishing endeavor, till i knew the time had come for moments un-veiling,as i stood before your monolithic scaling…. —-to your sleeping time of years gone by, there is this awakening of joy-full cry, and i am also jumping within the soul of your tree,since won’t be long till we are art-fully free… I love to tell stories, and story telling of old trees is what I am purposed ...

I feel so disgusted with myself, just three weeks ago I was on here publicly declaring my involvement with a router plane, now the despicable creature that I am my attention has turned to a mortising attachment for the drill press… And wow do I like the mortising attachment; I brought my mortising chisel, gooseneck chisel and my trusty red oak mallet to class today figuring I would be spending my time chiseling out the mortises for the cross members to my stool. Ryan stopped by and ...
I have been intrigued by the Logosol chainsaw mill for quite a long time now. In particular the M7 Chainsaw Mill. But in the high two thousand dollar range, it is way out of my budget. I believe that the mill is not nearly worth that price. I So, I think I’m going to start making my own chainsaw mill out of wood! I plan to make a wooden platform for the log bed with steps so I can move the log up one at a time. To control the depth of cut I am going to build a sled that will slide a lo...
Well it has been a few weeks since any update on this project. Between work schedule, family and, kidney stones I got a little behind. Anyway here is the latest on the Stickley sideboard. I managed to get the two side panels made and glued to the legs, as we saw in the last installment of this blog. Then I used some birch plywood to make the back and bottom of the drawer area. I went with the plywood for two reasons. First being the stability and second the ease of use. These two pie...
What I Need Comes by Way of Wood ….from where i sit, the woods give grace, in the light of coming day-space, where off in the distance, ....there walks one who cannot come back…. —-ah yes, what is to be the conflict, of this one shaped as a mis-fit, dis-in-tangled from the society of structure, ....and walking now by sound of ‘deep calling unto deep’.... Long were the ages of past, when the ancients of old, gave forth the tales we are told, and so...
Good Afternoon all. Been awhile since I could get on here. Aside from my work schedule, my wife experienced the trauma of having to vacate her apartment due to a fire that broke out in a neighboring apartment. Building is shot with a few apartments totally decimated. Fortunately, hers was not destroyed and the majority of her things salvageable. I had to help her move her things into storage and she is staying with her folks until she finds a new place. Nobody was injured and all pets were...
My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...
Hi there, this weekend another project got my attention for a couple of hours so I guess I’ll need another weekend to finish the guitar. So, I could only glue the fingerboard to the neck and apply the first hand of polycrylic finish but I’m almost at the end of the project, yeah! Getting ready for the fingerboard gluing: This time I went with yellow glue to have more time to set the clamps, it worked as expected An hour later, after cleaning some glue run-outs the neck...
