Howdy, I started mounting the table top today. It occurs to me, in hindsight, that I may have caused myself a lot of frustration. I’ll find out soon enough when I try to place the diamonds. Be that as it may, it’s turning out pretty well but you can still tell that a rookie is doing the work. I was able to use the warped pieces but now I have a few pieces that are slightly higher than others. I just bought myself more hours of sanding. I’ve also got a few gaps. A f...
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

My youngest daughter is getting married in September. I’ve decided long ago that i’d make each (I’ve got two) a bridal chest when that time came. Well it’s here and I’m doing it. I’ve made blanket chests before but they’ve been made with raised panels. This one is much simpler. Almost Shaker in nature for the design. It will have large finger or box joints at the corners. I think I’ll make a simple jig for my router to accomplish that. It will b...
I’m now working on a couple of desks for a Medical clinic. I’ve been working on this project for about 13 days now. I built this unit out of oak plywood and red oak lumber. I started this project by constructing the the upper portions first. I had to wait to receive my hardware before building the base cabinets. This set of desks is custom for the client, the first desk station on the left is 50” wide than there is (3) 40” wide stations one of the stations is going to ...
Morning all, Well yesterday was my birthday, and my loving wife and kids gave me two tools, plus some clothes. Since I doubt you LJ’s would care about the clothes, here are the new tools: Just an 18v Jigsaw (with laser sight) and a countersink/driver bit set. Not earth shattering, but they’ll be well used out in the shop. I have a relatively complete kit of Ryobi One+ tools, so I’m well stocked with two chargers and several batteries already. Now I just need something ...
I don’t believe that this subject has been brought up or not before but as I go throught the many processes of making boxes, there are times when I hate to disrupt or change the settings on my table saw ( blade angle to be exact ) and wish that I had a 2nd saw. I know that many of you have both a table saw and miter saw but do any of you have a “2nd saw” like a smaller trim saw / table top saw for cutting smaller, more detailed pieces and maybe different angles? It sure does...
View on YouTube I visited Michael Cooper in January of 2016. Michael is an unbelievably creative and talented guy. His body of work is so impressive that you will have to see it to believe it. He and his wife, Gayle, are as friendly, nice, and down to earth as Michael is talented. If I had to sum them up in one word it would be “Wonderful”. Michael Cooper Shop Entrance Entrance to Michael Cooper’s Shop Michael has a 2000 sq. foot shop in northern California. The setting is...
The frame is easy to make out of pine, fir or any soft wood. We want to make it look precision yet old at the same time. The hardest part is convincing the sun to age your project for you 2000 years in about a few days time. The sun owed me for a few sunburns soooo… Just kidding, we’ll get to the aging part later.I remembered a frame I had seen at the museum in grade school. I jumped in my truck that weekend and went to the museum to look at ancient lacquered furniture. I took not...
and panel raisin’ Got the Pine panel out of the clamps. Hand planed to as flat as I could get in. Time to raise a panel. Same way as the side panels. Mark out a “stop line” about 1” in from the edge. Take a #4 sized handplane, set it a bit deep. Go at a diagonal to the grain. Plane until you reach the stop line, check the remainder of the edge for straightness. As you get close to the finish line, back off the depth of cut. I do the end grain ...
