Hey guys i just thought I’d talk about the importance of networking with each other in the woodworking/maker community. Social media is a HUGE platform to show your work and meet other woodworkers all over the world( i think we all know this) but i just wanted to share my usernames for my platforms in hopes you guys could give me a follow and ill return the favor. Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...
Ok, time to get caught up with this thing.. Had two of these to do for the back apron Had two of these to chop out for the bottom rail of the drawer opening.. And the top rail gets a dovetail on each end….finally got the whole mess into the clamps and let this sit a day…..Monday, the shop is normally closed…not today…got the base out of the clamps. Checked the drawer, again…needed the front planed flat.. Works for me.. Corner blocks…were ...
Beginning to dislike hand cut half blind Dovetails…...PITA to do.. This is the second one I’ve ever done, without using an electric router and jig…..Maybe after a few more, I might get decent at these? Second side is out of the clamps, legs have their beads milled And stashed over with the first side. Dovetails are passable.. Ok, besides cleaning up a new plane I traded for, I did manage to make a drawer today. First, since I am done with the bead cutter, I cou...
Well, the cussing has begun…... Decided to mill a few tenons on the ends of the aprons…..Discovered I NEED the spur installed as soon as it gets here on my Stanley #45…..as I “Fired” the Wards #78 today. First off, I laid out for a tenon Didn’t want a tenon the full width of the 1×6, so.. Cut off a 3/4” x 3/4” square on each corner. At least there is less to work on….Got the Stanley made Wards #78 out of storage and star...
A quick update, this time around…. The Boss wanted to go over to Menards, and price a few items ( Honey-do sort of things..) While there I picked a couple 1×6 x 6’ Pine boards…...same price as a 12 footer, just a lot easier to carry in the van….took awhile to get a couple decent, but cheap boards….about half what they wanted for Clear Pine…..I can deal with knots… Letting them sit, leaning against the bandsaw…...the one in front was...

I am sure many other folks have thought about this when they got their house. I am a truck driver and I am limited mostly on time. but i am for the first time in my life venturing out to do something that i have wanted to do for many years. This past Sunday, 12/11/16 I met with my parents about a house that i have loved since I was 10 years old. As a kid we moved in next door to this old man that would quickly become one of my closest childhood friends. The man that showed me how wonder...
This is the story: after tinkering the plane I got so tired that at night I dreamed that I was at the beach using the plane like a mirror. So check out my dream come true here: https://youtu.be/eIzW6Nsi0aE The plane is a Stanley n5 with the sole and edges in a very poor condition. In addition, the blade holder (frog) was not flat so the blade did not work well. Although it’s a work that needs patience, believe me that you will have a happy ending and the difference is well worth ...
The next step in make my Shaker candlestands was to figure out how to hold the spindles/posts to cut the dovetail mortises for the legs. After turning it over in my head for a couple of weeks, watching some videos on youTube (include 3 different New Yankee Workshop episodes where Norm makes pedestal tables), and trying a few options, I finally decided to make a fixture to hold & index the post at 120° and use a router to cut the mortises . Here’s the fixture: The post...
Let’s see, cleaned the bench off a bit Except for a couple tools I thought I might need.. And brought this thing out of hiding.. Yep…that pine scrap did wind up glued in place. Wide chisel to pop it off. Got to looking at the legs….decided in the interests of it NOT falling over, a fourth legs was needed. First two legs were NOT 120* apart… Did NOT feel like digging another dovetail joint into the base with three already glued up. Used one leg as a pat...
