OK, I turned a bunch of slimline pens as gifts for my coworkers. Now I am moving on to something more complicated. I know it’s a bit soon but I love learing new woodworking skills and the challenge of delving into the unkown. I will blog about my adventure of making a “Dovetail” pen here. The first thing that I learned is how to do end on end dovetailing. More complicated than it looks to join two boards, end on end, flat. Not the usual 90 deg angle like in box const...

Here it is. My next video… finally! I feel like I got over a lot of learning curves on this one. I found this a particularly challenging subject to present because router inlay can get involved and there are often several ways to go about the different steps. Trying to cram all that into a video, however, is more likely to discourage folks from trying router inlay. My goal in this video was to present the essential knowledge and skills that one can start building on, thereby remo...
I often look over all the new projects displayed here on LumberJocks and think how lucky all of you really are to have the talent to be able to make so many and beautiful peices of ART.

Many of you have seen many of my peices of work but several have not been posted. I have produce over 300 pictures in the last couple of years, and try and do alittle m...

Hi everyone, well, this is my first blog, at least I think it’s a blog. I have been making toy boxes for about the last month and Believe it or not, I can’t keep up with the demand. I have made 5 toy boxes and have 3 more to do before Xmas. And my next customer wants it painted. I don’t want to buy 4 or 5 cans of spray paint, which brings me to my Question. I am looking for a spray gun to buy but don’t know much about spray guns. Of course I want it to do everything, Paint, Stain, and ...
This blog post is from my Cottage Workshop blog. to see my previous entries you can visit that site. I will try to upload to both sites in the future. I am about a quarter of the way into building a six drawer dresser for my youngest son, Ryan. I have decided to favor hand tools for most of the joinery for my own education as well as, hopefully, the education of anyone else interested in using hand tools. Enjoy! Moving onward, I come to yet another opportunity to connect with the Luddi...
