It has been awhile since I have updated the progress on some of our projects. Here is the limb and base, they are both sanded. The limb is ready to be scribe fitted to the base.
Sometimes, the means to produce a part of a project are nearly as interesting as the project itself! I’m building another box (Shock!! Surprise!!), similar to the “Quiet Little Oak Box” only larger. I again needed to cut some skewed tenons.I didn’t want to do it the same way as last time. Not that it didn’t work, but I wanted more control and accuracy. Also, this time was not a change of mind, where I could use the first, straight tenons as a handy guide for sawi...

CLICK ON MY PROFILE (osageman) TO SEE THE PHOTO OF THE WOODEN SPOON. UNDER, LATEST PROJECTS… I can be contacted at, email@example.com if any one is interested in having me make a wooden utensil for them… How is everyone ! Sorry this is taking so long to set up… The suggestion I was given, was, to run the spoon guessing contest as a blog, so that is what I’ll do. No one had the right guess last month, so I will use the same spoon. If you check back and...
Howdy everyone, I thought I’d post a few projects that I’ve had to put on the back burner for a while. The first one is on the back burner simply because I’m not sure what to do with it! If you folks have any ideas on what to do with it, I’d love to hear it! This is a solid oak hand hewn barn beam that is about 5 or so feet tall. I don’t want to make a bench out of it. I think it should be a centerpiece someday. I’d make a manltle but I don’t ...
Welcome back Friends! First an apology. It has been several days since I have offered to you the previous installments of this blog. Time constraints (kids, work, etc) and my desire to use video demonstrations of the technique have kept me from keeping you informed in a timely manner. Well, today a window of opportunity has opened up. It is raining today, so turkey hunting, softball practice, and yard-work have been postponed. So I have been able to devote some time to my blog view...

(25th of each month) Verified by Molly and Odie. (even a nice steak bone couldn’t sway them, last time:)5.) You must correctly...
Well Folks, it’s been a super-productive day for me (as productive as a full time student with a part time job, a ministry, a woodworking hobby and a girlfriend can be :) ). Before I glued up the rails to the legs I had to take care of some cosmetic details. I measured 1” from every outer bottom corner of the legs and up 3” in the opposing side. I drew a line to connect these marks on the edges and cut them out on the band saw for the foot detail. As you can see, the b...
Welcome fellow Lumberjocks to the second installment of my blog. I hope that you felt like the information presented in the opening episode of this blog was properly presented and that I was able to convey the information to you in an understandable manner. Unfortunately, in the opener we had to cover a lot of necessary information and provide a lot of pictures so that all Lumberjocks could understand the concept and construction of the jig. Now that we got that out of the way…and we...
