”Dreams are made possible if you try.” ...Terry Fox This episode is part of the Let's Build Series Woodworking Techniques: 1.) Cutting 45 degree miters using a flat board miter sled on the Table Saw.2.) Cutting dados on the Table Saw using a Sacrificial Fence.3.) Sneaking up on table saw cuts with the aid of shims. In this online video tutorial we continue the woodworking process of using an exotic wood in the construction of a jewelry box. The walls and base of thi...
Long day at work doing precision work (3 root canals, bunch of fillings, implant impression, lots of looking through microscope loupes…..) time to do something BIG with my hands and the bandsaw!! So tonight was the night to let the timberwolf howl! I have been tinkering and practicing with pine to dial in the GO555P, adjust the resaw fence and figure out blade drift. I cut some maple and pear that I bought to do a tea box for my mom, but have been too chicken to hack into it until I g...

In this episode I go over the installation of the drawer slides. It is very important to remember that the width of you drawer box is the key to a successful slide installation.
I had asked about a recommendation for what wood to use for these picture frames in another post . Finally got some walnut and started it this weekend. Started out with 2 3-4”-8’ boards from which I cut out 3 36” long pieces. I need to make 3 frames which are 12”x18” and around 1.5” wide. Figuring 12” was too short to plane, I decided 36” would be manageable size and each piece would give me one frame when I cut the ends with snipe off. Since...
I found this site while perusing a survival site. There is some good ancient information here. Enjoy! http://journeytoforever.org/farm_library/device/devices2.html
Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...
As the last post to the milling weekend, here is the haul from the weekend, stacked and now air drying. Starting MC is well above readable range on my moisture meter, therefore in excess of 45%, so very ‘green’. All told, about 40 bd ft of pine. Not an extraordinary amount but it does represent the first self milled lumber from my own trees, so it is a milestone. With 50 acres of harvestable plantation pine, surely the tip of the iceberg of what is possible!
As we continue on in our build we get to where we need to build the boxes for our drawers. I run through it and explain about setting up for the drawer slides.
I am in the process of building two end tables for my youngest daughter that just married. The project is built from soft maple and each table requires three panels for the top and shelves. I edged and glued the panels, but I needed to level them and make the shelf panels 5/8” thick. These panels are about 15” x 22 1/2”. I am not that good with hand planes, have a thickness planer that large or the time. So like most of my projects, I have to build a jig. First, I made a ...
