This time about some project updates, looking back at the easter video with the bunny and the pole lathe. About a new workshop made tool and….. a safety tip! As always, at the Não Só Serradura workshop, it’s about using reclaimed materials and working on a zero budget. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pC8OOLjGKUI Highlighted Youtube Channel: Harry Rogers at Mr.Windsor chair
There are the strips for the latest two end grain boards I’ve been working on. Craft show season is upon us again, and my wife and I are tooling up for a big push now that the weather is nice enough that I can get out in the shop without frostbite setting in. I’ve been cranking out a bunch of smaller boards, plus a few of what I consider average size… roughly 10×12x1.25” or so… I’ve done ‘enough’ simple boards now that it has ...
Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...
I went to visit Taylor Design Group, the manufacturers of Incra tools. They are located in Carrolton, Texas. I must say, I was somewhat surprised. I expected to see something of a showroom. Various implements or tools set up on display ready to be inspected, played with and perhaps drooled on. Not so…. Entering the door, I stepped into a small foyer To the right was a room full of parts and a man sitting there working on an assembly. I was toled to go down the hall to ...
I missed out on the book end party a couple weeks ago. I have had this project on my list for a while now so in light of the recent book end day I made these. Incorporates and unusual item and some dovetail joinery. Thanks for watching! Video link:http://youtu.be/3tDugk9aq0E Thank You Chris
How do you install a grid work inside a tea box so it looks like this? Here is what the lift-out grill work looks like inside the tea box. This is what the lift-out grill work looks like outside of the box. The small compartment to the left makes a chain pocket so the stop chain doesn’t get tangled with the teabags... Why use Venetian blinds for lift-out dividers? By the time you plane, sand, and finish slats to make dividers inside boxes you have a lot of time and ...
Shopsmith Jointer A few months ago I decided to change my Garage Setup due to space constrains and because IWas very interested in trying the Shopsmith At a decent price I got a Mark V with Band Saw and Jointer. The Table Saw Blade was still in a working ShapeBut a lot of corrosion on the Bed of the Jointer I try it once but the fence had an issue…missing parts or broken damage so I decided n to use itAnd due to my priorities the use of the jointer was not the #1 Im working in th...
Delta Biesemeyer table saw fence (guide tube and rails only) – new without packaging – never used delta fence guide tube and rails. An individual can add their own fence to this setup such as very super cool tools askwoodman t-fence or a delta fence for much less than purchasing the entire set by buying this new guide rail and rails.

I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...
Howdy, Joe asked me to create a little Blog about how I created my chess board. I’m happy to do so. I’ll just remind everyone that when you are seated at the board, the corner square to your right is white. I’ll edit this post this week to add illustrations. Truth being told, the cutting board and box makers are far better at this than I. This design is just a basic cutting board without using end grain. I didn’t allow for expansion so the whole thing may just explode on me one day. Us...
