Apparently I was in the right place at the right time, when my church announced that it was replacing all of its original circa 1963 oak pews with pews that came from a much older church. The pews they were getting were much more ornate than the ones they had. If I can I will try to get a photo of what the new pews look like. The pews being removed were very simple in style, down right bland and not much more than a block of wood with a butt divot. However I thought this would be an opport...
I have only cut the rabits in the bottom and sides, cut the datos for the deviders, cut the bottom, and made a half lap in the deviders to cross over. I still have to make my vennered top, make feet, and attach the top, as well as make a tray that will go into the top with I think will be 16 deviders. Please give any suggestions, and comments. Thank you. P.S Sorry for the to big of pictures. I have a camera that takes huge file sizes, and when I took the picture it was on high and the pict...
I thought it was high time I did a more detailed post. It’s not exactly blogesque, but at least it’s not clogging up the main projects with details. This goes with the cabinet I just posted on the projects page. Enjoy. This bathroom cabinet/sideboard was a house-warming present for a friend’s oddly-shaped full bathroom. At least, that’s what she thinks. I think it was a great excuse to use up some wood I had lying around, and a chance to try several things for the fi...

Beholder of Art ....art-full to be-hold, i gather what surrounds me, adroit nature i am….—by flp And so I was sitting this morning looking over some photos I had taken recently outside and out of my landscape of framework, came these pictures speaking to me. Imagination is a wonder-full gift, and when coupled with writing, the words of the soul can be heard, which has caused me to spend a rich time here at my desk with pencil and paper, writing out note-full stories for futu...
Funny. In Malaysia, land of rampant logging (legal and illegal), I can’t seem to find really nice wood. Well, maybe the wood is nice, but it is stored horribly. It’s typically kept out back behind the hardware store under a big tin roof, all stacked right on top of each other. So you can imagine that I would be somewhat tempted by the beautiful boards lined up at the back of Ace Hardware (there are a few branches of Ace here in Kuala Lumpur). I’m so glazed over that I don...
So i was recently given a chance to make a coffee table for my local tattoo shop, and while they aren’t picky, i do have about a $300 limit, maybe more if I really impress. Today i started drawing up plans and looking up stuff online. so far the table top will be 62×34 inches with runners, stretchers and prefab legs. which brings me to my next question, where is the best place to look that has the biggest assortment of 12 to 16 inch turned/tapered legs? i did a google search but wa...
