The Kitchen Project #1: The First Cabinet Door Attempt

11-30-2009 12:05 AM by End_Grain | 8 comments »

As you can see, my wife’s current kitchen cabinets are nothing to cluck about. They’re 35 years old, original. They were probably as ugly then as they are now. This is the final room that we haven’t remodeled yet. Everything is built into the house. The cabinets themselves are extremely stout. If I had the desire, I could do chin-ups off the shelving and they would not flex. This is my first raised panel door attempt. A lot of learning curve on the first. First tim...

The Patriot pens are new to the market and make a very pretty pen once turned. The last two are also new to the market. The last two are Western style pens, also very nice looking pens.

I know, weird title, but I am busy celebrating the release of my latest video, “The Making of the Rocker Cradle.” Sure had a lot of fun with this one. As they say, “what I really want to do is direct…” Okay, maybe not. Hope you enjoy the clip. Cheers! video

Helpful Jigs #2: Two Piece Jig to Make 1" Thick Bent Lamination

01-06-2014 09:51 PM by rhett | 3 comments »

Too cold to spray finish and waiting on blades, so here is a quick blog on a technique to make matching curves for bent laminations. NOTE: The desired final thickness of your lamination is equal to the diameter of the bottom bearing trim bit you use in this method. Blanks for the jig. 4 pieces of 3/4” ply to make a 3” deep jig. Cut and faired 1/4” template is used to get initial curve on a piece of 3/4” ply. Flush trimmed curve is used as bearing reference...

...in Which Tim Makes a Rake

08-09-2014 03:07 AM by Tim Anderson | 4 comments »

Ever since I bought a house, I’ve found myself doing too much yardwork, and not enough woodworking. I decided I could use yardwork as an excuse to woodwork. Rather than buy a $45 aluminum landscaping rake that I would probably only use 4 times in my life, I decided to use the old rake handle I found in the yard when the snow melted and a 2×4 to make my own. The first step was to remove the broken end of the existing handle: With this done, I started shaving off the end with m...

Handplanes #2: Mastering Woodworking Shows

Today I filmed two shows for Charles Neil’s Mastering Woodworking webcast. The shows cover the waterfront, from the types of planes and how they’re used, to planing technique, to restoring an old handplane. If you are a subscriber to the Mastering Woodworking shows, expect to see these broadcasts this week and next. If you aren’t a subscriber, the shows are an excellent way to learn woodworking and a lot of fun to watch, so you might consider subscribing. The website add...

How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...
