Hello woodworkers I have a question. I have turned a lot of my attention to creating furniture for 18 inch dolls, like American Girl. I have the book by Dennis Simmons, “Making Furniture and Dollhouses … ” and it seems to be the only printed resource for patterns. I have every copy of ScrollSaw Woodworking mag that contains a pattern for this. I have searched the internet and “YES” I have seen all of the suggestions about using ratios to change patterns to fit...
I found a few more shots I took whilst building the cupboard- The first couple of successful test drawers; a previous try with some solid fir failed with splitting along the grain – big surprise. Baltic ply worked much better.Dovetails came out mostly good; you should be able to spot a couple of minor goofs here. Some careful work with tiny slivers of suitable stock hid them quite well. Mostly.Fitting the doors; the best use of old business cards you’re likely to find!
Something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. Since I’m involved in whole house renovations at the moment I won’t get to building it for awhile but maybe someone might and find it doesn’t work and put me out of my misery in thinking about it. I have one of those 1 1/2 hp delta dust collectors. One side is the motor and impeller. The other side is the round metal hoop with a bag on the bottom for the chips and a bag on the top for air expulsion and dust. I took...

The gift is going to be a small wooden sign reading “Debbie’s Place”, in Cursive lettering, on an Oval Back.Gotta begin at the beginning, with lettering! Happily, I have Stencils of Written or Cursive style letters, this time I’m going with the one inch size. I’ve gathered what I can think of that I’ll need, though not likely everything. Ready to begin.Now there’s probably a few who will get a laugh out of doing it this way, but it works as good as an...
I’ve been building speakers for most of my life. It’s what led me into woodworking. Sadly, I don’t have a lot to show for it. I’ve either sold or given away every set I’ve ever built with only one exception, the set I’m currently running. Even worse, from a woodworking perspective, they’re pretty sad. Made entirely of MDF and finished with rattle-can stone finish paint, they aren’t pretty. I’m planning to rectify this situation. My next...
I received a call this morning from Keith July, he was going to try and get us a free space for our gathering and has done so at the JOHNSON’S WORKBENCH in Charlotte. It is almost centrally located in Michigan. JOhNSON”S has offered us one of their warehouses to meet in. They have tables and a grill/ So if it is OK with everyone we thought we would make some dogs and hamburgers on the grill and maybe the wives could whip up a dish. Since this is a meeting place for the MID MICHIG...
The picture below is of the after stage thein I mentioned in the first part of this blog along with an addition. If I have a bucket of water in the shop, along with my walls eventually getting coated with dust from it seeping out of my poor filter bag on my dust collector the water get filled with dust and it sinks to the bottom. after a few days of heavy wood cutting a 1/4” layer of dust is at the bottom. Yes I know, I need to do something about this. Part of it is my mediocre dust ...
