While I was in Portland I got to see the master class graduation at the Northwest School of Woodworking and all the beautiful work they had created. I had time to see Portland a bit and got to go to the famous Powell’s bookstore. I went to an apple festival in Estacada where I got to make my own apple cider. While there I was able to watch some carvers working on a large tree stump that was to become a totem of a kind and some little kids trying out some old woodworking. I saw an ...
So as most of you know I finished my cabinet a few weeks ago save the drawers. Since my mother’s garage cabinets that some of you have seen, I have had an outright war with drawers. I cannot seem to get them right, ever. I have tried the expensive soft close all the way to the under and side mount white roller slidey ones. This time was no different. I bought those crappy white roller wheel sliders because they were cheap and I wanted to try something new (not to mention it was fo...
It has been a long time since my last entry and although I am embarrassed that I haven’t gotten more done, it is not for lack of effort. It is amazing to me how long it takes me to get almost any little thing done on this project and equally amazing to me how many small tasks crop up that I had not anticipated. But, alas, it keeps my spare time accounted for! The image below is of the project room I have been working on. I am still new at posting blog entries so the first entry I mad...
Adjustable Bench Hook Bench hooks are a very nice addition to a workbench. Sometimes for carving a small piece, a bench hook can be a bit too deep. Using a woodtek router bit (bit #942858I 14” shank) had for making jigs I routed two slots in a bench hook and drilled some holes for the hardware to slip in. I had thought about using a T-track inlayed in the hook for the adjustment, but I thought ...
Hello Everyone,Just uploaded the last video for the Krenov cabinet on stand build. This build was a lot of fun and had a lot of firsts for me. All in all I think it turned out very good. Here is a link to the video. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQEr3xm4llk
Drawing in Perspective You don’t have to be an artist to be a woodworker, but a good foundation in perspective drawing can come in very helpful. I have the fortunate history of many art classes to pull from and I am often asked by clients to draw up a design that I have proposed. Being able to draw a design that will eventually resemble the piece you plan to build can make the process easier. I am a firm believer that a woodworker should always keep a journal of design ideas near...

It has been a couple weeks now since I started this journey, and joining LJ’s, and the fire is still burning. My amazement of what people can do with wood is what seems to be fueling my obsession. I have made some progress in deciding what area of woodworking I want to really focus on, and also learning and touching on every aspect of it. One of the first things I’ve been doing is trying to turn my wasteland of a shop into a useable space. with the shop being a touch bigger tha...
Saw a cool idea on Stumpy Nubs YouTube. A downdraft table imbedded into another table. I think that will make a great addition to my assembly table. I think I can cut out a section to add the downdraft table and a piece of Masonite to cover the holds when not needed to make a flush surface. Floated the idea with Drew (Rock-n-H Woodshop) we’ll see what he has to say. He built a better version assembly bench not tool long ago. Already working on how-to build a new fixture to inser...
