Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...
I’ve Searched for a curved balancing bottle holder pattern online without success. So here’s one I use. It’s from a wood working magazine and printed on 8 1/2×11 paper. Hole size is usually 1 3/8” for 750 ml bottles. Width can vary from suggested 1 7/8” to whatever you like. I’ve gone with 3” here.
Late last night I ended with some small boards getting glued into larger boards. Well this morning while the little guy was sleeping I was able to get those out of the clamps and start getting them to final dimensions. I purposefully made the glue ups larger than needed to I can trim them to size and make up for any irregularities encountered during the glueup. First order was to simply clean them up 4 square.. Then I ripped the sides to get to final width (did a little of...
This is something I have been planning on building for a few months now. I have been putting it to the side until today when I realized I could really use it right now for my layout swap item. While I was building my workbench I was searching the net for vises just to get some ideas and inspiration for the ones on the bench and I came across the Benchcrafted Carvers Vise. It looked pretty nifty but like many of their products I simply cannot justify the price when it can be made fr...
The router lift is finished. I used plans from John Heisz and they are just superb. The plans include detail drawings with dimensions for each part, good explanations for the assembly and a Sketchup file that allows you to explore the design and see how everything works together. The completed lift works very smoothly – I can’t wait to put it to use. First, some pictures of the lift before installation. It’s just sitting on top of my current router table. ...

Today I am going to start building a mobile workstation/cart or whatever you want to call it. No doubt mine will be similar to carts others have built, but customized to fit my needs. So, here are my ideas. The Plan Table use: I plan to use the table for things like: a sanding area surface for mounting the PC dovetail jig mount for the pocket hole jig area for clamping glue ups. other uses where work piece needs to be held in position via clamps.

Several people have inquired about the Pochade box I am building for my wife. A Pochade box is a painter’s box that can be transported out into the field. Varying in size, shape and style they can contain any, all or none of the following: paints, pallets, brushes, solvents, canvases, etc. What a Pochade box really does well though is holds a canvas while one is in the field painting. Mine is made of walnut sides with a bookmatched maple top. The base, sub-base and drawers are ma...
