A quick update, this time around…. The Boss wanted to go over to Menards, and price a few items ( Honey-do sort of things..) While there I picked a couple 1×6 x 6’ Pine boards…...same price as a 12 footer, just a lot easier to carry in the van….took awhile to get a couple decent, but cheap boards….about half what they wanted for Clear Pine…..I can deal with knots… Letting them sit, leaning against the bandsaw…...the one in front was...
After a bit of a pause I finally was able to get back to this build… It feels really good!Watch the video… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNJfder-emQ

Small circular to crosscut the 1×8 into three 27” long blanks…..Jointed the edges.. With a Stanley #6c small jointer plane. Laid the three down...
Here the second and last part of the “stool in concert”. It’s just another shop stool, but was made with a lot of love. If you have not yet seen the first part, see it first to get in the right mood! (You can see and hear the complete concert on my videos). In this second part I dedicated to elaborate the seat, the final assembly and the finish. Here the wedges of the seat ! Thinking of finishes, and that this stool will be used in the workshop, I decided on wat...
Hello All, Well where to start lol. Kind of like one of those Dating sites. Quick background, I came from folks who knew how to use their hands, they had to it was do or die or at least without. I’m second generation of the rural flight caused by industrialization. WW2 brought both sets of Grandparents together, from four different regions of the USA. I was Born in New England but raised in the Midwest. My Uncles on one side all tradesmen, some craftsmen in their own right and on ...
It seems like it has been forever since I posted a blog. As a person who posted a new blog nearly every day for over five years, it seems that I have been quite lax lately in keeping up. I apologize about that.It isn't that I am not busy. Quite the opposite is true. It seems that the floodgates have been opened and all of a sudden things are really kind of wild. That in itself is wonderful, but it is also kind of scary. While I am thrilled and excited about this recent 'growth spurt...
Spent most of the day working on this box. When I removed the clamps, I found one corner that hadn’t glued up… So, got out the glue, and a couple big clamps. Trickle the glue into the open joint, and crank the thing tight.. I also took a bit of time to clean the other end of the box up.. Block plane to level things a bit. Since this is the bottom of the box, it would be nice if it would sit flat.. Set up the Stanley 45… With a bead cutter….I think it...
It’s a hectic world out there. That statement says a lot as of late, work, family, home repairs, remodels, obligations, appointments, meetings…. it goes on and on every single day in many of our lives. For thoes of us who love woodworking, but have other professions, where do we find time to do what we love? It’s difficult to, isn’t it? In my situation, commercial truck driver by proffesion, keeps me from home 5 days a week, day an night. When I am home, i have...

Ok, wasn’t the plan to work on a Monday in the shop…just kind of happened… Thought I could just size two plywood panels to make the lid and the bottom panels….Marked one out, thinking I could use that to mark a second one, once the first was done….bandsaw cuts were a bit..wavy. Got out a plane to un-wavy them.. Got a Junior Jack plane to joint the edges straight. Checked the ends with a square….recut, and then joint THAT edge. Then go through ...
