Hey everybody, after a few personal messages here is my version of a how to on a Drunken Checker Board. I of coarse bow to the Chairman of the Board and pay tribute with beer.

I am using Hard Maple and Walnut both are surfaced flat and cut 1” x 9” x 14&...
No glue. Long story short – no glue joint…pretty cool.
In this episode I setup the stand to my new skil tablesaw. Most people start off with one of these saws because they are about $120 and theywork ok.

I have a full review of this saw on my website at www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com

Most of the highest quality pieces of furniture had veneer glued to the legs & aprons, which were...
Hey readers, my apologies for that last post being published twice. This post will show the construction of the sides: Because the maple ply that I bought is not a rotary-sliced veneer but a Pivot slice, it appears as if its glued up boards, each one being around 6”. So a 24” inch wide piece looks like 4 boards glued up. To make this work to my advantage, I laid out the pieces and used the track saw to make the first cut in a way that would make my sides look like the ...
