First joint other than butt joint - mitered half-lap

Not the best saw for this, I know, but I want to make a picture frame and don’t have a band clamp or anything, so I figured I would practice this type of joint, which I recently saw in a book, since it would give a better glue bond with the long-grain to long-grain surface area. I’m showing my mistakes a...

I got a nice shelf tower finished today for my desk area to help store all the stuff that seems to accumulateout of nowhere. All pine, 10 shelf unit.82” H X 12.5” D X 21” W(The nice part of making your own stuff is that you can make the piece to fit just right in the space you want it in.)The top, middle and bottom shelves are permanently a...

All in all it was a great event with a lot of great entries. I would like to thank all those who participated in the 1st Annual Whirligig Wars Contest.

The response was overwhelming with over 6000 video views of the videos relating to the contest and many great comments from woodworkers all over. So it was decided early on that this would be ...

Door disguise #1: Cover the door but don't make it look like I covered it.

07-13-2012 05:38 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 9 comments »

My dining room has been used as a dining 5 times in the last 18 years. A few years back, my wife took it over as her little room. I’m good with that. The piano is in there along with an entertainment center and seating. I am almost 100% done with that room but something will always bug me. The doorway to the kitchen. It’s right behind the couch. I don’t want to see that doorway. I tried to fill it in (would have been pretty dang easy) but my wife said, “You never know ...

A New Work Bench, Mikey Style

07-04-2012 02:59 AM by MT_Stringer | 6 comments »

Several years ago, I built a simple work table as a table saw outfeed table. It quickly became my do it all table. It is made out of 2×4’s and two pieces of 1/2 inch cd plywood which I had stored out in my shed. Fast forward to the present time. Lately I have gotten a renewed interest in woodworking. I have been doing some type of carpentry since the 70’s when I was helping my dad build pole barns. After my dad passed away, I was given his Craftsman table saw (circa 197...
