As mentioned in my previous post, I had an interview with a local reporter, here’s the video, and for those of you wondering what I really look like now as opposed to my profile picture that was taken 33 years ago, here’s the sad truth. I forgot to mention earlier when I first posted this that all of the music playing in the background was done by me. View on YouTube
My little cousin is getting married this year so my aunt asked if i could make her a blanket/storage/keepsake chest. This was my very first blanket chest/storage chest build but of course i wouldn’t turn down the opportunity!(quick side note, So i do about 90% of my work with hand tools only, i do all the milling and and joinery and basically everything other than long board rips, then i use a table saw…just thought this was important for you to know in this part of the story) So yeah…normal...
Hey guys i just thought I’d talk about the importance of networking with each other in the woodworking/maker community. Social media is a HUGE platform to show your work and meet other woodworkers all over the world( i think we all know this) but i just wanted to share my usernames for my platforms in hopes you guys could give me a follow and ill return the favor. Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...
I just ended up with about 30+ square feet of brand new leftover red oak hardwood floor material. It is about 3/4” thick, 3.25” wide and in random lengths. It has tongue and groove milled in the sides and the ends. The bottom side has some channels in it, so I’ll have to mill about 1/16th off to make it flat and parallel. (good thing i just got a planer!) Looking for project ideas that will make good use of this! Please comment with thoughts or links! I will keep...
I have built a bathroom cabinet from oak panels and a steel frame. It is industrial styled wich is very hot here in the Netherlands at the moment. I made a video of the building process wich can be seen on Youtube I hope you like it. Regards,Gerry
It’s a hectic world out there. That statement says a lot as of late, work, family, home repairs, remodels, obligations, appointments, meetings…. it goes on and on every single day in many of our lives. For thoes of us who love woodworking, but have other professions, where do we find time to do what we love? It’s difficult to, isn’t it? In my situation, commercial truck driver by proffesion, keeps me from home 5 days a week, day an night. When I am home, i have...
I know, not everyone is in the same situation as I am. Some are more lucky than I, and some just don’t have as many opertunities as I do. So that’s tosay, you may not be able to use the solutions I have, you may have other options I dont, but, this is what I found. As a commercial truck driver, more specifically a flat be driver, I have many opertunities to bring home what’s known as “dunnage”. In essence that is lumber (of many types and sizes) that is...
I had been tossing around the thought this I want a better work bench. The problem is, I don’t have much money or time to build one. As a commercial truck driver by trade, I’m only home for a little more than 1 day per week, and much of that time is taken up caring for my kids, house and volunteering in the Scouting Organization. But, like every other wood working enthusiast, I know I need to just make some time to do what I love doing. So on each weekend that I have even just ...
Recently I applied one coat of Black walnut Danish Oil to a red oak table top that I made. I have waited for it to dry thoroughly for 2 days now. It’s a bit cold in my shop, around 55/60F. When I lean it vertically small droplets form from the deeper recesses of the grain and very slowly drip toward the floor. I have been wiping them with a rag. Is this common? Can someone provide insight?
The base is basically a piece of 3/4” poplar plywood with a solid oak edge band that is secured with pocket hole screws and glue. I machined a 3/4” dado 1” up from the bottom of the left, right and back sides and the base just slides in. Before assembly I still need to position the 4 locking casters and glue and screw the the base and shelf into place. The upper shelf is the exactly the same piece as the base except I placed to dado 6” from each side to positi...
