Trucking right along here. The bulk of tonight’s work was trimming the table top and carving out a couple through mortises. I have never done that before and don;t quite know what possessed me to do so but they turned out “OK” for a couple firsts. They are nice and tight but are less than pretty from the viewing side so some wedges will be in order. I do however feel very confident in their holding ability since I had to pound the crap out of the stretcher to get it set ...
I’ve made a lot of progress in the last few weeks. First I marked up the lumber, orienting grain and appearance for the various parts… Then I proceeded to cut everything to rough size. Laying out the curved pieces for the pedestal and cutting them to size… I then moved on to the feet… And starting fitting the pedestal and feet together… Everything went pretty well, and the experience of making the pine mo...

While I know that everyone says you should only really mill as much wood as you can work with in a day, the reality of it is that the wood I bought for the bench is taking up my entire garage, so, while I have cut the wood for the top down to size, before I can really get much further on it, I needed to cut the material for the legs down to size, then move the rest that I wont need for this project to the storage shed. In my last post, I mentioned my rip sled and some of the comments (I be...
The other day I received my new Bad Ass Nice Ash. What a beauty. Just as advertised. Then I needed to adjust it all I had was a 5 oz. ball peen, a framing hammer and a major wood adjuster. None of those worked. The ball peen came the closest but the metal just had too much force.So I decided to embark on making some wooden mallets to adjust the small beast. Below are some pic’s of the fun I had making tools to adjust the new tool. The smallest is the best for very small a...
:O) I am a bit excited. I finally have a set of GRR-Rippers in the shop. I have been wanting one for a long time. So I put together this video to show you just a couple reasons why I am pumped up about these helpful shop accessories. Not only are they keeping me safe, but they are allowing me the opportunity to perform tasks I couldn’t perform before… That in itself has got me doing backflips… lol Here is a look at the video

When a viewer sent me a comment asking if I could make a First Aid Cabinet for the workshop, I thought to myself. “Yea what a perfect project to do”, because I am setting up the new shop, and it was the one thing missing. The First aid Cabinet was made almost entirely out of Pallet Wood. Oh yea! my first Pallet Project! http://www.asimpledesignofocala.com – Websitehttp://www.ufoww.com – The United Federation of Woodworkers Member Sitehttp://www.twitter...
