View on YouTube In this video I take some Oak stock that I previously prepared and make a picture frame. Repetitive parts have been edited out. Total real time to make this was about one hour start to finish, not including the 30 minutes clamping time.
Finished my wife’s workbench. Check it out and let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions on how I could have done it differently.
Wood has three dimensions and the table saw cuts both X (length) and Y (width) The Z (thickness) axis needs a lunch box planer. The table saw has the Incra rip fence and miter gauge so X and Y are covered. Z however needed some help getting the same accuracy as the saw. One of the benifits of digital gauges is that I can see the reading without squinting or having to bend down. I have a digital height gauge to set the saw height and set the router bits consistently. Repeatability is...
Used to have a shop, X got in the divorce. :( Fast forward 15 years & I have 2/3 of 1/2 of a garage to build a cabinet shop in. The core of any shop is the table saw and within my (retired) spending limit I got a brand new Grizzly G0715P. Simultaneously with the saw purchase I added an Incra LS-III rip fence and an Incra miter gauge. I’m disabled and can’t walk / stand a lot so everything is within reach of my chair in front of the saw. I’ve got most all of th...

The wife and I bought a vacation condo a few years ago and it came fully furnished with some dated furnishings. One of which was a metal table frame with a glass insert that was used as a night stand in the guest bedroom. We had the condo fully repainted recently and my wife brought the table frame home and painted it to match the wall color. She asked me if I could make a new top for the table and like any busy and extremely overworked husband I bowed up and shouted back at her . . . ...
In our kitchen is an antique hoosier cabinet in need of some serious restoration. I know the antique purists will say don’t touch it, it’s worth much more with the original everything even if it is falling apart but the cabinet is not an investment so much as a place to keep our corn flakes and bread. The Front of the cabinet and drawers seem to be mostly ok. There is a bit of cracking near the end grain on the top of a couple of the face boards but they seem to be stable now...
Call this a pick or a bodkin. It is chiefly used to nudge out the maple ‘wedges’ that hold the horse hair in at either end of a bow. I made mine from half of one of those nut picks that come with nut cracker sets. After cutting the nut pick in two, I chucked it in my electric drill (corded) and sharpened it on my belt grinder till it gained a nice long point. Then I mounted it in a scrap piece of white oak with a copper ferrule. The handle was finished with boiled linseed oi...
Previously made a TV Stand. The bottom shelf and top is kiln dried red oak,(50”wide X 16”deep X 2.5”thick). A friend randomly asked if I wanted to use reclaimed white oak for the legs… I used them,(about 4.5”wide X 3.75”deep X 18”height). Looks awesome! So I decided to make a coffee table with mostly similar characteristics… I have the red oak for the shelf and top. Now my problem is I don’t have anymore reclaimed white oak… So I cut...
I am in the process of making my first tongue drum. Got the Poplar box and Red Oak tone board made, needs lot of work still, and a bottom yet. But the 3/4” red oak tone board doesn’t make much sound and three of the 12 keys sound dead. Don’t understand what’s happening? It doesn’t rattle or buzz, just thump, no tone, well, not a pleasant one anyway. Sure could use some insight or help figuring out what’s happened? It’s funny, the two keys along one...
