Two years ago i was introduced to high school wood working. I was formerly familiar with the trade and tools as my great uncle and grandfather were both career woodworkers making fine furniture. Ever since i made my first project the dream has been for a roll top , well its been three courses and 250 hours later , i have been all allowed to begin construction on my desk. This blog will be about building that desk. More for me to track my progress than anything but anyones welcome to come lea...
I’ve done a couple of raised panels now using hand planes. There are a couple of videos if you google raised panel with hand planes. One form Paul Sellers and one from Stumpy and basically they describe the same process. Unfortunately, I have discovered a couple of issues with this process that I did not care for. 1. The raised panel itself is not cleanly defined.2. The rabbet used to go into the sides of a frame or box are more wedge shaped and the panel does not seat claenly in...

I don’t mention it here very often, but woodworking isn’t the only hobby I am passionate about. Those that have seen the early photos of my shop may recall the canoe that used to hang from my ceiling. The boat storage has since been relegated to the yard, another boat added, and well… storage is getting to be a problem. I decided to take to Sketchup to solve the design problem, and I think I came up with a winner. Mostly a copy of someone else’s idea, but with some mod...
Well this is only my first blog because i have been under utilizing the time i have been given during workshop for the past 2 weeks using my shop time as a study hall for my other classes.:( However, from this point forward i plan to take a new lead in working more diligent while also effectively using the class time provided by Mr. Rocco lol. Although i have been very neglectful to my wood shop aspirations of lately, that is not my only setback. Both me and my mother have both had our ow...
Well I’m almost done making my in-laws a bench they requested. I’m a new wood worker but am proud of the bench. It’s basic design of course, with dado joints. I would love some feed back from everyone about it. Tell me what you like or don’t like or what could be done different to improve it. Dimensions 16”d x 45’l x 35”h. Made out of solid pine. Will be treated with minwax stain and poly seal. I made my own wood plugs from the same project wood an...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1251: Finishing Up the New Patterns for the Site Update
Today’s post will be quick like yesterday’s. I have been feverishly working on getting my new pattern packets ready for the site update (well – maybe not feverishly, but hard anyway!) I finished my little Easter egg tray pattern yesterday and it took most of the day to create the packet. It took longer than normal because not only did I have the painting instructions to do, but also the sewing instructions for the Roc-Lon fabric option. I couldn’t help thinking that...
Hope you enjoy this. It has been a blast till now. Part 2 won’t be far off.
On February 15th I bought a 1945 or about that Delta Milwaukee Table saw and Jointer combo with a Delta 1hp motor on a stand off of Craigs list. After I got it home i needed some info about it and was looking on OWWM site and found a table saw and jointer that looked like what I had Link to sawIt turns out this was the exact saw I had bought down to the green paint on the table saw. It was still in the same garage that the picture was taken in. That was in Lebanon Oregon.I thought it was neat...
It appears that we have another layer of snow this morning. Winter surely seems to be having its fun with us all, doesn’t it? I have read so many complaints about the weather these past several weeks and I can’t help to think back to a few months ago when instead of complaining about the cold and snow, people were unhappy with the heat. Go figure. I find that complaining about the weather is a waste of time and space. After all, no matter what is sent our way we really don...
