...is my treasure and my wife’s entertainment. Part of my day job is doing service calls on a variety of issues relating to locks and doors. As such I meet a lot of people. Today I had the fortune of meeting Bill. Bill was a navy man in WWII and had his ear drums blown out by a deck gun. We were chit chatting as I did my thing and an antique work bench sitting in the corner came up. He asked if I wanted to buy it, I did and got it for cheap complete with a fair number of tools. I...
Over the last couple of days before and after work I have had an assembly line of sorts going on in the shop for the glue up of the side, top and bottom panels of the cabinet case. I am up to 3 done and one more in clamps as we speak. As each one came out of the clamps and a new one went in I went about cleaning up and flattening the faces with a myriad of hand planes and my scraper. I purposely made each panel slightly oversized just in case I needed to rip a glue joint and re-joi...

With the release of my latest article in WOOD magazine on design, it prompted more requests for a video on designing and how I find inspiration. In this video I share the lifestyle habits I have that allow me to keep finding inspiration, recording those ideas, and developing the designs. For an example, I share how I turned a Japanese torii gate into a stairwell barrier, bucking the standard design of newell posts, balusters, and handrail. While the subject of designing can get pretty d...
I saw a description of a double screw Moxon vise made from a pair of handscrew clamps in a recent issue of Popular Woodworking and thought it would be a useful addition to my shop. I had some seldom used handscrew clamps and a 4’ Oak 3/4” x 5 1/2”, so off I went. My first bad decision came when I considered how to remove one of the handscrews from the clamps. The clamps are designed so that the handles on the screws stop the opening of the clamp before the screw...
In the past I have received many of compliments from a lot of my friends here on LUMBERJOCKS.

At first I thought I was doing really good with ALL YOUR COMPLIMENTS AND THE WAY MY FAMILY carried on. well I thought that maybe I had something going. THANK YOU!!!!!!!.

Are you interested in taking the pain out of using pipe clamps when laminating large blocks?No problem, as long as you have a piece of 2” x 4” to spare (and who doesn’t?).1. Cut the piece of 2” x 4” to a length of 6 to 8 inches longer than the maximum length of any lamination that you will be producing.2. Mark off a centerline down the 4” face of the 2” x 4”.3. Using a spade bit of the same diameter as your clamp pipes, drill holes at 2” or 3” intervals along the centerline marked i...
