Fine Woodworking Magazine published an article many years ago of a table that Sydney Barnsley built in the 1920’s.The table is now in a museum in Cheltenham England. The article had original drawings that I redrew in Sketchup.I traveled to England last year to see the original and I have just procured some old white oak barn beams that I am going to use for the undercarriage. The table fascinates me and will require a lot of hand work and chip carving.It may take a while, but I wi...
The other day I was working from home, I was bummed out because I had been to busy to do much woodworking lately, so I said “Hey, standing desks are supposed to be good for your, and my “joinery bench” is about the right height, why not put my laptop on the bench?!” If I cant woodwork, I can at least be around my tools. One thing leads to another and while on a conference call I get the bug in me to reshape this plane tote. I’ve always disliked the shape of...

I keep hearing you can never have too many clamps. I expect that’s because I always misplace these or are left in a pile to be sorted out. I was watching several videos on YouTube on clamp storage. Steve Ramsey redid his storage putting clamp racks behind a door. No such luck in my shop. Someone had made the “ultimate” clamp and wood storage cart, however, a 30” x 96” cart is out of the question also. However, several of the ideas from that build and a ...
Here’s a little idea I had last night, & decided to work out a way I could do it. It’s a Fully Off Axis Stemmed Goblet, where the whole of the stem is a half inch (13mm) off set from the cup & the base. To do this, I roughed to round, formed the cup, hollowed out (leaving the walls rather thicker than usual) & finished the inside & outside of the cup. (I should have also finished the shoulder of the stem section too…I’ll know for next time!) I then ...
Ok, last episode, I was getting a center stile made. Well, after measuring three times, the dang thing still was short. Yanked it out of the door frame, used it to mark another board. THIS time, I held the new blank to it’s new home, and marked things out, and cut leaving the lines. I needed to cut a groove on both edges of the now center stile. Clamped it into the bench vise, and gave this old boy a work out First a little hammer work to center the cutter. Might have had ...
I started working on my sheet good storage system. For a small shop, this is ideal! When you don’t want to use it, you just fold it up and get it out of the way! See the first video in the series on how I made it!
You will see some amazing joinery and craftsmanship in this slide show. Great for ideas… An ad man named Leonard Fenton has spent well over two decades now working on Artemesia, reputedly the largest Craftsman house ever built. And it is something. The 13,300-square-foot mansion in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood was built a century ago by Frederick Engstrum, a construction tycoon who built downtown’s lovely Rosslyn Hotel, according to a story last year in Los Angeles Ma...
