Yesterday turned out to be quite a productive day. I cleared up all my correspondence and got all my cutting done and the pictures to the wholesaler and I even had a little time to paint in the evening. I even started to do some writing of the final packets I have to assemble, but I thought I would be fresher for something like that in the morning and opted with the painting. The ornaments were quite challenging but I was able to cut them without problems. They were stack-cut with one la...
Just this morning (7 July), I was saddened by a death in my wife’s family circle. Doris passed away today due to Kidney complications. Three years ago, she had undergone kidney transplant and we thought she was cured. And because of this, there will be 4 families coming home from USA and one from London will be here. A FAMILY REUNION. I am thinking to give gifts (boxes) to each family that makes 7 boxes. IF ONLY I HAVE TIME… CAN I DO IT? Can I let others do it? No matter ...
The tutorial has been read 84,000 times. I am reworking and rethinking the tutorial. Stay tuned. Andy
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 ?
