Ok you asked for it, here it comes! Tool holders are made so, here are a couple of closeups, I already have had these made, but I have not built them in… So this blog entry is an augmention of the plan, so you can see in wood how it should look. They are nothing more than some hardwood, in this case Ash, strips glued together. When selecting wood for tool cabinets or anykind of cabinet where steel or iron will be in direct contact with wood, the Cabinetmaker must always thin...
In this episode I cut the sides and shelves to the right length and width.
Okay will have parts this weekend… I found a source for pullout 110V squirrel cage furnace fan blowers, and plan to grab one this weekend. The idea is to grab one, make sure it fits the plan from ShopNotes, or make the shop notes plan fit the blower whichever… and get to building. Some changes I want from the shop notes design. #1. Relieve the edges with a 1/8” roundover bit. Nothing extreme, but those corners won’t be too much above my skull, I’d rather no...
This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.
I’m pretty sure im going to build a blanket chest for my wife for our second anniversary (holds the cotton!). I’m still in the design phase, and got this far with Sketchup. I have not filled in all the joinery, and dont plan to since there’s no need: The carcass will be assembled with loose tenons, so all parts will be milled to dimension and the joinery will follow easily enough. The top will be breadboarded. Most tenons will be doweled more for accent than strength....
IN this episode I talk about portable power tools.
Now me and my family have moved to a new home. It’s an old house built after war.. (1950 or something) As we moved in i discovered, that here is a small room at basement that used to be someones workshop. It even has the workbench there!! Let’s see how I have the time and the energy to make it a decent shop for me. First I have resolve the heating problem. The room has only concrete walls with no insulation… If I heat the place up with some kind of electrical thing, I will u...

Dear Lumberjocks, It all started in January 2009 when I published a first woodworking article in Wood News Online magazine of Highland Woodworking store, from Atlanta, USA. After that one I wrote three more articles, whose readers suggested me to join the Lumberjocks website. The warm reception and effusive support that I received from woodworkers around the world encouraged me to submit an exhibition proposal to my social club in Belo Horizonte, Brazil (Minas Tenis Clube — a very impor...
