Well, last time, I had a couple frames almost done. I went down to the shop a couple times today. Got the second large frame all joinered up. Then worked on the narrow end frame.. This is from laying out where the rails would go. First I had to trim them to length. Got out a mitresaw.. A little old school, but it works. Had a plain candle handy, and before most cuts, I’d rub the saw with the candle. Made sawing thos oak a breeze. Cut a few tenons with that same saw. h...

Oh my! You guys have no idea how happy I am right now. It took about two weeks, a digital angle finder, a dial indicator, a new Biesemeyer fence, table saw extensions, and a lot of sweat, but this crosscut sled is done! Well, almost. Still have to build accessories, paint it, and make it look all pretty and whatnot, but at the very least, I can use it to cut, or more exactly to crosscut. You are probably wondering how on earth can a simple sled make a guy this kuckoo right? It is by no mea...

For precision I like to use a pencil with a fine tip to mark cuts lines. When working with dark colored wood and some grain patterns, not to mention aging eyes, I frequently lose the mark. So it’s back to the bench to measure again and find my mark. I’ve found that a dash of white chalk solves the problem. Chalk the line first, pencil your cut line on top. It also puts an end to all the one piece at a time “Run and Cut It.” Now I sit at my bench, concentrate on...
I decided to make a cooler box for my deck and I designed the whole project using examples from the web below are some of the design aspects that I designed on Sketchup.. Also is a shopping list for all materials and tools that I will be using in its construction: If you decide to make this cooler please take your own cooler measurements… As you know they are all very different, my cooler is a 48 quart cooler.. The cooler roughly cost me $100 for materials but I had to buy the K4 ...
Being new to woodworking, shop projects are a large part of my efforts as new tools come into the shop and the shop becomes more of a shop than a garage. I am refurbishing one wall at a time, so please keep that in mind when an unfinished wall comes into view. This was an early project to get my clamps out of the way. It was just a simple box placed on said unfinished wall. please excuse the trailer park curtains. They have been replaced now with the mini blinds. :) This is t...
I follow Darbin Orvar on Youtube and built the stool that she featured last year. i even tried something new to me, distressing a painted finish. I used the leftovers of the Teal Green bench that I made previously, and top coated it with leftover color from a kitchen project. I sanded some “worn” places on some of the edges for a used appearance. We were invited to the second birthday of a friend’s child and did not know what to give her. it came to me in a flash! The sto...
