I started to build a sample – first of the kitchen cabinets. It’s one over the microwave and is a standalone. I wanted to check out my techniques. Gluing on edge banding on the front edge of the plywood. 1 cabinet 21 X 24 X 12 and takes lost of clamps to glue on an edge band 1/8” thick on the front edge.(Note: I’m doing European style cabinets and not face frame style.) So I started to think about my options. At the toy workshop we sometimes use rubber ...
This is why its been awhile since my last post. One of the problems with shaping wood to this extent is any flaws show up. Figured Bigleaf Maple, aka Western Maple, Oregon Maple, Acer macrophyllum, can have pits, bark inclusions, etc… Well, I found a few during the final shaping. I knew I was getting pretty close to maximum depth in one corner, but I couldnt leave that little black spot glaring at me. Then I was all the way through and exposing the bloodwood below, nothing ...
Was working in the shop when I came across this wonderful opportunity to make this video! Check it out and you will know what I mean….. Thanks for watching and keep some super glue handy!
An Opportunity to Share While creating some detail mouldings for cabinet doors and drawers, I realized this would be a great opportunity to share how I handle these smaller pieces. Simple But Safe The methods that I use are very simple but create safe handling in a small production setting. My work table is not a traditional style woodworking bench, it has a solid laminate top without bench dog holes. I like the clean solid surface for the type of work that I do. This would...
If you haven’t seen the show yet, this may be the episode to start with. It’s fast moving, introduces a great project, and features the twisted sense of humor that makes Stumpy Nubs videos unique. This week the workshop finds itself designing a clamp rack that will hold 48 clamps in just 3X2’ of wall space. Then Stumpy reviews “stretchy tape” (whatever that is…) And finally (my favorite part) Stumpy tries to figure out how to get out of trouble wit...

I know I am opening a can of worms :) A big can of fat squirmy ones :) Power tools buffs before you throw the first rock or board let me explain, and hand tool galoots don’t get too happy I still love my motorized friends (although I still am fond of hand tools ). There are points in our modern power tool shops that hand tools are just plain better one such example was the other day a friend stopped by and wanted me to chamfer some small boards for him, as I reached for my block plane h...

The top and bottom spoons are Myrtlewood from Oregon, and the center one is Mahogany. Each took about 1.5 hours.The handle of the top spoon is a twist, but didnt photograph very well.I noticed the recent contest posted by Osageman and was impressed with both his skill and his big heart.Be sure and take a look at his page and make a guess on that wood.I couldnt identify that wood, but it got my attention.It got me interested in making a few spoons this last weekend and I wanted to share my...
