My statement from the last blog post is still true. The table is saved. I swear the learning curve on this project is straight up. I have had such trouble putting the final finish on the table top, plus the weather, (I’m working outside under a canopy), plus other chores… I still expect to get the table delivered this weekend, although rain is predicted for Saturday! I kept getting nothing but brush strokes trying to put the final finish on. I sanded, but when I got the bru...
I received a set of Stanley 750 chisels for my birthday months ago and decided that they and my planes needed a place that was easy to get to and easy on the eye.Pictures are worth more than a thousand words. I started with the plane till so I could get a general idea of the size of the cabinet.Then using No3 (third grade cherry) boards planed down to 820 thou I edge joined using biscuits narrow boards to get up to over 9 1/2” wide, after joining the boards I planed the joined boards...
So the final details have begun on this Mystery Project…As was said at the end of the last blog, the Cherry that was purchased will be the story here, it is to be used for all of the Hardware and Trim…First it had to be squared and Planed… Since this Box is kinda large, I thought it would be a good idea to give it handles on either end, the easier to lift it with… While the block of Cherry was still whole, I thought to try some things…First, a mortice was mark...
It is hard to believe that we are beginning a new month already! September seemed to pass by so quickly, and before we know it, we will be into the holiday season. It has been such a busy month for us here, and I am sure that is why the time flew by so fast. It seems that I have been going non-stop and one day just bleeds into the next. I am not complaining at all though, as I have been very happy that there have been so many opportunities ahead. After the closing of the magazine, I must...
Many of you who read know about my little "all season" tree. It is a tall and slim tree that I keep up all year round and change the decorations to coordinate with the season. Even though we live in a small place, it is nice to have such a wonderful little tree to brighten things up and decorate with different things. Since Keith and I are always designing new ornaments and things, I never run short of things to adorn it with. In fact – I don't think I have ever had it loo...

Grooves for planes cut, dividers and inserts dry fit with planes….... Glued and clamped…. Insetting hinges.
And, happily, the last part!You are probably as tired as I am of looking at this thing… Though very little has actually been produced here, 12 hours of Work and almost two weeks time have been consumed by this one detail!Anyway, we left off with all but one of the slats cut at the appropriate angles… The process of pegging these on with wooden doweling was a simple one, but care was needed!Each Slat was first given a quick but thorough sanding… Most of them had been pa...
This weekend was splendid! I finally was caught up enough to do some things around the house that I have been meaning to do for quite a while. My little 'all season tree' is now beautifully decorated in a cute, Halloween theme (you will have to come back tomorrow to see that – I have too many photos to show today!) and not only did I do some major cleaning, but I cooked a great Sunday dinner and I plowed through a fairly large pile of "UFO's" and got them all...
