Here is where those seasoned veterans of the Festool Domino can point and laugh at some rookie mistakes. I am making a new cabinet to house my air compressor because the dawgone thing is soooo loud. So I thought it would be a great project to put my new Domino through some paces. As I was trying to understand some things on this machine I plunged into the face of some scrap 3/4” plywood I would be using to make the carcass. Well I created a through Domino, so back to the instruction...
I have been back full time on our boxes for over a week now so I have some progress to report. I have been selecting veneer out of our veneer cellar for the ebony background. From the experience of the previous series I paperbacked the ebony as it is a very brittle wood. Better be safe than sorry Then built the packs in 4 layers without forgetting the grease paper, one of my specialty in the mistake department. Teaching marquetry has been a great help as by reminding the stud...

(View the original blog post here). TOOLS THAT YOU’LL NEEDEven though I have a nice tool buying guide (here), I’m still often asked for links to the tools that I use in my videos, so here is a list of tools that I used in this video: WORKBENCH:-Sjoberg Elite 2500 Beech Workbench (with o...
In my above video I share a eureka moment that I had when trying to apply reverse clamping pressure against the walls of my dovetailed tool chest. The original blog post is here. I discovered that I could simply reverse my small Bessey clamp’s jaw and it would push outward instead of inward! It’s kind of hard to explain in words, so just watch the video! I’m not sure if any other clamps can be reversed like this, but I hope it helps. Here is where you can buy these clamps: -Besse...
Here is part one of my attempt at Tag Frids three legged stool. We begin by cutting the mortise and tenon and an angled dovetail. http://youtu.be/WeYBQMULTm8?list=UUoiFVDvzJX8tXXF5GsUPc_Q
