Not being the most creative and obviously skilled I have taken up a huge project that I am hoping will make things functional and smooth for every project to come. I recently acquired a Dewalt planer DW 733 and a DW 745 for 350.00 in great condition from a close friend. My hope and plan is to do right by him and use them until they die or I die. The goal a large “L” shaped work station that will house a table saw area, compound miter station, planing section, router station and ...
We have had rain for several days as the remnants of the hurricane that hit the Baja has drifted over Texas and onto our heads! So I couldn’t go to the lumber yard. Instead, I went through my lumber rack and dug up all of the maple I could find and a few pieces of poplar. I managed to mill enough for the six top drawers. These drawers have 4 inch sides so there were a few pieces that got glued together and then milled. The drawer fronts have half blind dovetails. The rear of e...

I complete the three legged stool. In this episode I glue up the seat and eventually the rest of the stool. I shape the legs, install the wedges in the mortise and tenons, sand and finish the stool. Thanks for the support and kind comments! This was a fun project and satisfying to have completed it. Best RegardsChris http://youtu.be/jhUJkumaA18
After a few feeble attempts at using a belt sander and a hand plane ( as if that was going to work) I decided to build a router sled. I don’t have much in the ways of a work surface that can accommodate a piece this size so I fashioned up a few sawhorses, a bed to hold the slab, and then the router sled itself. The whole thing took me an afternoon and is made of MDF. Because the slab varies in height so much I wanted a easy way to adjust the sled potion without having to move the wal...
While being a long way from a furniture maker and only dreaming of having the amount of skill (and tools) needed for beautiful wood working of that caliber I did find the courage to take on a project that seemed very difficult but was in fact relatively easy but came out really nice (especially for a first attempt at real woodworking as opposed to simple carpentry). Putting in a new kitchen was simply not in the budget but something needed to be done with our 35 year old cabinets and kitch...

Just some pics of shaping the flute, I have given it a blow and it has a really nice sound so I assume I must have got the nest right.
I have a couple of pics so far. I had to make a join in the timber so I dowelled it together at the block of the flute. I think the next step is to join the pieces together and start shaping the outside. I have heard it is a good idea to finish the inside of the SAC with a waterproof finish to stop any condensation getting in there and ruining the timber but am unsure if I should do this or not.
