Yo whats up everybody today I took down my old clamp rack and set up a new one. Then I started organizing all of the cut offs and the shorter pieces of wood.
MONDAY, JANUARY 18, 2010Designing For Children- There’s No Place Like HomePublished article: Homestyle Magazine (November/December 2009 Issue) It takes a while for me to really appreciate a beautiful home. The exterior and interior design of the structure (or as I call them. The “picture“ and the “frame,” respectively), as well as the landscaping, are all visible and tactile elements of architecture. The sound of children’s laughter and the spontaneous interaction between parents and...
Should have posted the plans in the first entry
I have been commisioned by a young man who is an ameture astronomer to build for him an eyepiece box. That is, a box that will hold all of his eyepieces, his filters and his maps without any damage to the pieces. He travels with his telescopes every year to SC, I believe, so it needs to be secure enough to not open up on him and to withstand an accidental tumble or two. I have had to learn how to use a dovetail jig and have done pretty well with it. However, due to my lack of proper pla...
Planning a project is often my favorite part (aside the finished product). Thus there will probably be many many more plans/drawings on here than work updates. However, this project is going to be seen through to completion as I need a workbench in my shop for future projects I probably won’t finish. I’ve scoured books, magazines, and the internet to come up with a good vision of what I think I need in my bench. My current shop is 10’x20’ so space is at a p...

The top and sides were glued up and trimmed a couple of days ago and today I was able to cut the dados and sliding dovetail slots. Of course, I screwed up one of the (supposedly stopped) dados and will need to insert a little block for the, err, stop. I had almost forgotten how much mess routing a dado can make. I made the drawers to a variation of the intended design after discovering that even the slightest deviation between the holes for the shelving wires and the actual wires was enoug...
For the last few days at the end of last year ….LOL…I was very busy… I was designing a recessed base for my Lazy Larrys..I have just taken the time to post this….To start I have cut a circle of 5/8” plywood to mount the bearing.. this is roughly 300 mm or 12” in diameter as seen to the left in the first pic.This is accomplished by using the router to drill a hole in the centre.. the same size as the pin in the table. The hole is dropped over the pin and th...
Well here it is, the year 2010 and we are planning our newest projects for the year. I have come out with the idea of we use each others talents to enhance our own products. All of us is better at maybe putting a certain cut, or carving out that likeness of and animal a little bit better, or routering those curves, angles or ends on a piece of wood, What ever we are just a little bit better at maybe we can help each other with that special project. I hope maybe my talent of burning that speci...
We have an old house and there is not place to put anything…. Our closets are tiny our rooms are cluttered with chests and junk, the stairways have chests and piled on junk. The reason for this is that A/C or Heat was not invented when the house was constructed. So we pile up towels and sheets and such in several trunks and chests that while they are pretty(I made them) the are unpractical. Thus we start Sandi’s Crhistmass present ! SO. in that light I was tasked to build ...
