This video covers a few simple projects that any woodworker of any skill level can make. I show a prototype of two projects that I’m currently filming how to videos on. A band saw box and a woodworking mallet. Both are made out of simple and easy to acquire materials, Alder and pine. Cheap and no excuses here: These projects are designed to be able to go from start to finish in one to two days, simple weekend projects that can be made from left over or scrap woods. Excluding finish I am using...

Well, As I sit in my air conditioned office, I am already dreading that hot job site that awaits us! We have moved out from the shop in the past few weeks and are on two sites that involve custom Trim work and built-ins. The problem is…IT IS HOT…and only June! The area we live in is normally very uncomfortably hot, but it has started early this year. Currently we are working on a large home on one of the resort islands. It doesn’t have the air working as of now. What...
Did you ever have a day where everything just falls into place and things turn out the way they are supposed to? I love those days. It isn’t that the other days are a disaster or anything, but looking back I can honestly say that it was definitely a good one. Not only did I accomplish what I set out to do, but unexpectedly, I liked the result much better than I thought I would. After writing yesterday morning, I set out to fine tune the patterns for the two Christmas candy dishes...
I finally got down to the business of drawing yesterday. It seems like so much has gotten in the way lately, I haven’t been able to spend any time at it. I did a lot of looking around on the computer and was in one of those phases where I have several things that I want to do and didn’t quite know where to start. Those are probably my most unproductive days it seems, although I tend to organize things in my mind eventually and then it flows and I get down to business. I near...
I have been thinking about going into woodworking full time. I like to work with wood all the time, what does that say about me ? Does anyone do woodworking full time ? I just don’t know what would be a good product to make and sell. Does anyone have any ideas ? Some pointers and tips would be good. I like making lathe stuff but I don’t think there is much money in it. Maybe some furniture or boxes ?
18 days, and more research Ive finally arrived at the time when its time to put blade to wood. In part 1 I uploaded my sketch up version I fashioned, only to change. Im sure this will change some more. Never followed instructions in school, so why should I follow my own here?Included in this marathon of woodworking, will be a saw bench. I downloaded some plans for one from Christopher Swartz blog, Lost Art Press. I’ve selected a bunch of Cherry that was given to me, yes sometimes even ...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #24: Finished 3 Frames, Wrote Some Instructions, and Made Some Pizza :P
Yesterday turned out to be one of those days where the clock must have been spinning double-time. It seemed I got an early enough start, but before long the sun was setting and it was over. It is amazing how some days do that. It just seems that time is not always my friend. Besides the normal Saturday ‘chores’ of cleaning the cat box, kitchen and bathroom and doing some food shopping, I had the most intense craving for Chicago-style pizza. Now Nova Scotia has some of the be...
For my parents’ 30th anniversary I told them I would build them a table for their remodeled basement. It is going to be solid white oak. I orignally planned on using quartersawn for the top, but in the end decided not to use it. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I’m excited because I’ve never built a table before and I’ll get to use my new grizzly jointer. I’m nervous because I’ve never built a table before. So here it goes. I’...
