Though I was traveling on business most of the month of May and only had a couple hours to spend in my shop, I had psyched myself up to participate in the 3rd Annual Summers Woodworking 2X4 contest and for the most part am happy that I did. I bet that I almost spent as much time sorting through 2X4’s at the several local Lowes and Home Depots and purchases a half dozen of them before locating my “White Whale”. It was an absolutely perfect specimen and will be the 2X4 ...
So I scarfed this “New Old Stock” item on eBay for $89.00. It’s a 24” Incra Ultra Positioner. I made a mounting bracket and attached it to the back of my home made router table. I am really stoked about this improvement.
Tonight I’m replacing my weekly shop update with a Live stream at 4:30pm Pacific Time from my shop with an update on the Gamble House Rocking Chair and a live Q&A Session. You can tune here on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Sjx0VWKRYI
For years I’ve wanted to build the Gamble House Living Room’s Rocking Chair. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Gamble House and get an up-close-and-personal view of the rocker as part of my research. Since the beginning of this year I’ve been working on the sketchup plans and testing out various templates to see if the shapes I’ve come up with are in proportion and true to the original chair. I start this project in mid May and created a Playlist of all ...
For my entry in the Summers Woodworking Third Annual Creative 2 X 4 Contest I chose to make a plant stand which has the form of a plant!

Thanks for looking in and have a wonderful day all you Lumber Jocks.

This is the blog describing how i made this chair. For a long time I have had this corner of my garden that have a place for a bonfire. We use it a lot and the favorite is making pancakes using a pan on a long stick. My son loves it! But the place itself could use some help. Especially the chairs are a bit annoying. I keep them because they were a gift from a friend and have a fun story to them (they are made by the inmates of a local prison that houses long term prisoners): The ...
I milled the leg and spacers/support block out of the same chunk of oak. The screw and nut are the remnants of what I bought for my end vise. A cove cut on the table saw and an 3/8” round over gave me the basic profile. I smoothed it out of with a whatever rasp and file I had on hand. Then marked and mortised for the nut. I’ll probably put a dab of epoxy on final assembly of the nut to make sure to hold it captive. It’s damn good fit if I say so myself. ...
