I gotta take a pause on the tool chest build because…well….spring! I wanted to get this out as it is seasonally appropriate. Winter is over and it’s time to get ready for the warmer weather and undo some of the things that go with winter. A whole slew of handy tips and things that will make life just a little easier. I gotta say, this is pretty much my favourite time of the year. View on YouTube
Hey guys i just thought I’d talk about the importance of networking with each other in the woodworking/maker community. Social media is a HUGE platform to show your work and meet other woodworkers all over the world( i think we all know this) but i just wanted to share my usernames for my platforms in hopes you guys could give me a follow and ill return the favor. Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...
I was recently invited to join Gallery Calapooia in Albany, OR. Today I put my work in the Gallery. About a week ago when I first got admitted, a reporter from the local press, the Mid-Valley media group, came out and shot a bunch of video of me working in the shop and did an interview. Then a reporter from another local paper came out and did an interview and took a bunch of pictures. At the end of May Albany holds its’ annual “Wine Walk”, my work will be in the front...

Hello Lumberjocks,I have been working on some projects that I plan on selling to help pay for my family vacation this summer. Today, I had to pull out my Craftsman Planer. It is model number 351233731. The date stamp on it shows that it was built in 1995 but it works. I have a set a brand new knives for it and I even have the alignment tool for it. The rollers leave a bit to be desired though. They are nicked and cut and really need to be replaced. Some preliminary research online has ...
Many times when I’m designing in sketchup, either following a project design, idea or measurements from a video that are in inches, it’s quite confusing for us who did not learn into the imperial system but in metric to get the measurements accurate and loosing a mm there and there that ads up to a significant number.Watching many videos either tutorial or projects etc. when they give dimensions some say i.e. 1/2 inch and transform this to 13mm… well we all know that an inch...
I built these two storage shelving units for my basement. They were super easy to build. Check out my video and if you’re looking for the measurements look here.View on YouTube
While working on my current project of a TV Credenza, I had the need to clamp for the planing of molding on the front edge of my bench. As mentioned by many others on this site, my end vise was wracking, and I tried the usual solutions – wedge, spare pieces of wood, shims, etc., but found these to be somewhat of a pain in the neck. Thinking about it, I decided to use the far runner in some form of clamping procedure. I went to Lowe’s, secured a 7/8” dowel (the diameter of...
