More photos available on my blog: Pallet Craft! Hello Readers! This past weekend, a major trend took place, it rained constantly and unrelentlessly. That being said, I was able to utilize my carport this weekend to get things moving on the pallet entertainment center, and the recycled lumber crib mobile. So lets dive right into the action! Pallet Entertainment center! This is probably the most exciting project for me since the pallet wood table that many of my readers saw in my fi...
Here is the project post for the Faberge Egg Eggnigma The jewellery box was inspired by the Russian jeweller Carl Faberge who made jewel encrusted eggs that contained a surprise for the family of the Czar of Russia on each Easter.My version doesn’t have any Diamonds or gold yet but with time I hope it will hold some loved and cherished pieces of jewellery.It has taken twelve months to finish with 355 individual pieces of veneer and 215 pieces of wood, how many hours who knows? The Egg was ...
The platform bed will have large, what I call wings, on the sides and foot. I glued a section of walnut on the side wings up near the head. These will serve as as sort of side tables. the wings are 5/4 in thickness and have recessed trays in them. I chose an ogee edge for them and routed the outer edges of the ‘wings’ .Using a tray or bowl cutting bit the depression was routed using both a bearing template of mdf and a simple sled to clean out the inside of it. I love routi...
All in all it was a great event with a lot of great entries. I would like to thank all those who participated in the 1st Annual Whirligig Wars Contest. When I presented the idea of holding a whirligig contest to Steve Ramsey (Woodworking For Mere Mortals) he and I agreed it would be a fun summer event. The response was overwhelming with over 6000 video views of the videos relating to the contest and many great comments from woodworkers all over. So it was decided early on that this would be ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #766: Seeing Double - Part 4 of the Video Series
Yesterday I received my newsletter from Lumberjocks and in reading it, I noticed that Debbie had mentioned that I would be adding on to the class that I ran next year. I was glad that they thought it warranted being brought to the attention of the readers, as I am sure that many who followed the class don’ necessarily read the blog here on a daily basis and it was nice that they announced it so that those interested could again come and see what we are doing. So far, the feedback ...
Hello All, As always check out this, and other projects at my blog: http://blogspud.blogspot.com/ I am finishing up a project I started on the side with my adult patio table set and I wanted to blog about it in my series while I wait for my wednesday pallet pickup for my next project as seen in my blog. This table is designed for my daughter to have and will have pretty much the same look as the full size set that I built. I plan to make like benches and stain the wood the same as we...
I was designing a project a few days ago, and a couple of the joints would use angled dado’s. I’m wondering if anyone has done this and opinions on the safety of doing so.
Another little video from FastCap—in this one we play around with the FastBreak sander. We recently shot a whole series of FastCap products, so I hope you like seeing these videos. :-) The tools are really great though. This one is pretty short—no goofing around like the glue video. ;) I have to say—after getting this item, it’s become one of my favourite tools. Sure, there are other ways to do this process, but this is by far the fastest for me. I was previou...
