I’m getting ready to build a box for my wife, based in no small part on several designs I’ve seen here and incorporating elements of many of them. I’m at the planning stage, trying to figure out how to best use the lumber available to me for this project. I’ve got some walnut, a good piece (36” x 6” – 3/4) of curly maple and another (48” x 3 7/8” – 3/4) of Tigre Caspi. Plus a ton of walnut and oak. I’d like to feature the...
Not much in the woodwork line today. Its Sue and my 15th wedding anniversary today. This coincides with the 50th birthday party for the company I work for, Mole Valley Farmers. Their party is down in Torquay so off we go. Had an eye test, last week and I need new glasses. They’ll be calling me Pebbles before long. Not surprising with the sort of woodwork I do. Should pick them up next Thursday. There was a project posted recently of a 2 cubic inch box. My little Bess Ring box come...
Today I thought I’d stop cutting after the second sheet in order to put the puzzle together to see what we have. Here is the front foot: And the rest fit together so far, although I might reshape the seat once it’s glued up. It’s fun to see all of the pockets and bolt holes being drilled in the passes before the profiles; the only thing I couldn’t do on the shopbot was the angled pocket where the back supports joins the underside of the seat. Planning on ...

So i was recently given a chance to make a coffee table for my local tattoo shop, and while they aren’t picky, i do have about a $300 limit, maybe more if I really impress. Today i started drawing up plans and looking up stuff online. so far the table top will be 62×34 inches with runners, stretchers and prefab legs. which brings me to my next question, where is the best place to look that has the biggest assortment of 12 to 16 inch turned/tapered legs? i did a google search but wa...
Just a reminder to all the Michiganders that there is a Woodworking Show this weekend in Taylor down by Detroit. Should be fun we’re going with Rustic Rick and his wife and meeting up with SteveMI. The html address is “http://www.woodworkingshows.com/” Hope to see a lot of Lumberjocks there. Maybe we can figure out a Lumberjock Picnic for an earlier month so we don’t freeze the balls off the old brass monkey. (An old Nautical Term).
Did you ever wake up and just know it was going to be a good day? I love when that happens! I feel like that today. (And, no. I don’t think I am “jinxing” myself. I don’t believe in that – although I do believe somewhat in Karma) Yesterday was a great day. There was no particular reason, but things just went according to plan – and then some. I got all my files in order and backed up on the new drive, I filled some orders, I made contact with the two ...
Check out how I did my first saw restoration!;https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuURBvPUoh_ghXT86FXtIRQ
What started as a leaking kitchen faucet has turned in to a kitchen remodel. However, I convinced my wife that before tearing up the kitchen, we should build a buffet in the dining room. If all goes well, then we will tackle the kitchen next year. We have been living in this house since July 1987. It has been paid for for several years and all of our kids are grown so it is just me and the missus. The cabinets are vintage 1983 oak but their time has come and gone. I don’t like the...
Hi everyone! I’ve been somewhat out of radio contact due to pressing work for my degree and working on a business startup…. Between then (when was the last post?) and now, the entire piece was constructed in Solidworks, had the bugs refined out (mostly avoiding work overcomplication and basic logistics), ripped apart and reconstructed. Very little has changed from the original dimensions and layout. The recipient of the largest changes were the doors in terms of the muntin/mull...
