I know that it is a while since I have posted more on this project… halfway throughout the build using cope and stick frame joinery….change of plan from customer…Now I have to make the doors with mortise and tenon… so yesterday I cut the 98 mortises and 98 tenons and got ready to bevel the inside edges and cut the groove for the panel…This was after remilling all the frame material..Good thing though… I managed to book match all the inside stiles for th...
Greetings All, Well, as I said in the first part…I grabbed out my original sketches and they looked nothing like what I had in my mind now, but knew I wanted to incorporate some of my original ideas into the final design. So, I grabbed my DRY ERASE MARKER…and made a cardinal mistake. I rough sketched my final design (going completely crazy on details) on my large whiteboard. I Would have been fine, until my g/f erased the whiteboards a week later, not knowing I hadn’t c...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #149: Skating Through Saturday on the Paintbrush of Life
After my proclamation the other day of my dedication to working on my holiday gifts in the evening, I still had to pack it in by 11pm and slept until what I consider ‘late’ – 7:30am. I was a bit disappointed in myself but I was tired and in the past few years I have found that I need to go with what my body is telling me and give in or I will perpetuate the cycle. My health has been excellent in these past two years though so even though I sometimes feel that I don’t...
Had a mate want to add a foot rail… to his bar …to rest you foot on…... when standing at the bar.. I made these brackets out of New Guinea Rosewood…. just need to drill a 40mm hole to thread a 40 mm Tasmanian Oak dowel through… There are six of them … three for each side of the L-shaped bar. Made a template and then cut all of them on a bandsaw and smoothed them out on the oscillating spindle sander. As well as drilling holes I will need to roun...

Were you all as horrified as I was when you read that statement? I was doing my morning mail and cruising around my facebook to see what my friends were up to this morning and those words jumped out at me from someone’s post. I don’t know about you all, but it is time to kick into high gear for me and really get moving on making my list and getting some stuff done. As many of you have witnessed, I have been working on a couple of additional skating pond sets which are both to...
I’m getting closer to the finish but I just noticed my grain direction is heading in different ways with the foot and head board. Also the top is a bit wobbly I may have to add more supports to it
After yesterday’s adventure, I am happy to be able to stay at home and get some work done today. Although I know it is good for me to venture out into the real world sometimes, I can’t help but appreciate the comfort and security of my own surroundings. I have always been someone who enjoys their surroundings, and even though I look forward to the day trips I take, there is something comforting and safe about returning home. I don’t think that it is severe enough to be re...
Greetings all. Well, finally got the camera back from the wife, only to find I hadn’t installed the software to use it on our new computer. Took me ages to find the disk. Oh well. finally back in business. There are two photos here, one of the completed cubes for the top. The other is of a couple of pieces from the same flitch of cherry veneer, one raw and one about a minute after wiping it with a sponge moistened with a 1 to 50 by volume solution of lye in distilled water. Q...
Well, here are the steps that I accomplished to get to this point. I did run the cut strips thru the drum sander to clean them up a little and to take any imperfections out so the glue would hold better, at least that was the plan. I hope to take the clamps off tomorrow and maybe run it thru the drum sander to see if my design will hold true. Misc. bamboo pieces I have to work with Cut blanks to be cut into strips Cut strips Strips turned on edge Bundled edge pieces Hopefu...
