Today I cut up the main play area surface (MDF). I knew I wanted to prime the base, so figured I’d cut the MDF first and get the fine dust mostly out of the air before priming. I had to use the same layout methods (and again told myself I need a table saw) and spent precious time marking and clamping before making a few cuts, but in the end, got a perfectly cut plank of MDF that will fill almost all the space inside the upper box. On the left and right, I also cut out 4” wide “wings” that ...
Today was a pretty productive day in that I got all the lower parts of the table ready for finishing, but my final output didn’t look much different than yesterday. To start, I flipped the completed bottom frame over a piece of 1/2” plywood and traced the outline. I then broke out the circular saw and using a straight piece of poplar plank, figured out the blade offset and clamped the straight edge down. I placed this whole thing on top of a sheet of 1 1/2” thick (I think) foam insulation ...

This year I joined with Woodworkers Fighting Cancer and built the table and chairs project. It was a fun build and I thank Marc and Nichole over at The Woodwhisperer for all the work they put into setting up this great annual build.

I created a video showing the construction of a Fliptop Tool Stand I built for my planer and oscillating spindle sander. My shop, like so many others is inside a small two car garage with some days feels like a one car garage. Space is not something I have a lot of and because the house I live in is a rental and only temporary, I can’t build cabinets like I’d like and or don’t want to put in the effort to build something that I’ll just have to remove and take apart whe...
Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdAK5fz7n3A My wife has picked up the scroll saw in the last year. She expressed an interest in scrolling so I bought an entry level Shop Fox 16” scroll saw for her. She’s made plenty of things including the pumpkin door hanger for our front door shown in the picture below. She saw a similar thing at a store, took a picture of it, and made one of her own at home. She has had 7 or 8 orders from people wanting her to make one ...
How this promise of a captain’s bed came about was almost an accident. My bride-to-be is used to having a large bed, California King, to be exact. All I had was a paltry queen-sized mattress on a relatively low frame. She commented that I probably stuck out over both ends when I slept (I’m 6’ 4”), and I had to agree with her. She also did not (understandably) want to share a bed with me that I had shared with my last (deceased) wife. So, I went and bought a Cal-Ki...
Yesterday I had to skip posting. Our internet had become so spotty that it was difficult to stay online for any length of time. Over the past couple of weeks, both Keith and I noticed the problem was getting worse. The thing that got us wondering though was that much of the time it would work fine, but then it would be 'dragging' for increasing lengths of time. Sometimes hours. It is funny how dependent we have become on the internet. Not only for our business, but for our every ...
I have not had much time to share anything going on in my woodworking life lately. My wife and I purchased a 15,000 sqft building about 3 1/2 years ago. So far the building houses a 1700 sqft 3 bedroom apartment we live in currently, and my shop at about 3200 sqft. We are turning one 2200 sqft section of the building into a Gluten Free Bakery my wife will run, as she is a master baker. Anyway I am making hardwood flooring for the Bakery and the area directly above the bakery that will become...
After building some regulation size Cornhole boards and they were a big hit with my friends and family I decided to build a scoreboard… My design is very similar that you see online on the likes of Pinterest ..the scoreboard consists of the following 2×4x1/2” thick sanded plywood ( ripped lengthways to give 2 panels with dimensions of 12” x 48” Materials::- 2” acrylic numbers ( 3 packs):- (2) pieces of 12” brass chain.:- (2) 2.5” brass h...
