The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I decided that easiest alternative was to cut the desk board. One of the questions was how to make the holes for the axes in such a small space. I found only one solution: to tear off the central piece for drilling, so that after glueing, the piece could looked like before manipu...
Day number two feels good. You made so much progress last night, and it’s almost done. So you jump right in, and decided to put your trunions on and figure this thing out. 3 long screws hold them on. ...well, easier to put them on first, then flip the whole show onto the table top I think. Bam. You got this. ...That’s supposed to be behind that. (swear a lot) Rent a bearing puller. Hooray. Just like day number two feels so good, so does doing things twice. Ho...
Here is a tip for some jocks who have to do a lot of routing on smaller and quick projects, especially if they are making small signs. This tip can be used on larger projects as well with a little adaptation. I learned of this from a little old sign maker about 30 years ago. I met him at a craft show…. I was carving and he was making signs. He was routing signs on the table top without using any clamps. I thought, “Boy is that cool or what? ” What he did was take two strips...

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

What Type of finish do you use? Finishing is a common question among woodworkers. I know for me when I first started finishing it was almost dreadful. I loved to build things but when it came to finishing I almost wanted to leave it bare wood. I built a oak dart board, I guess you could call it a case several years back and when it came time to finish it I ruined it. I applied two many coats two fast and didn’t take the propper steps to apply a quality finish. When it was done I thr...
Didn’t find any related content so thought I’d throw this out.I keep a lot of my tools and hardware (o.k. and old magazine issues, and reference books, and sandpaper, and…well you get it) in filing cabinets.I don’t use the cheap ones, if they aren’t commercial grade, full extension, heavy duty slides I won’t get them.I don’t pay retail, it seems the new paperless business has a lot of companies getting rid of thiers. I get them at thrift stores, garag...
