This video covers a few simple projects that any woodworker of any skill level can make. I show a prototype of two projects that I’m currently filming how to videos on. A band saw box and a woodworking mallet. Both are made out of simple and easy to acquire materials, Alder and pine. Cheap and no excuses here: These projects are designed to be able to go from start to finish in one to two days, simple weekend projects that can be made from left over or scrap woods. Excluding finish I am using...

If you’re like me you’ve probably looked in various woodworking magazines over time and have read articles on applying wood inlay. Sometimes the inlay can be rather simple and yet it becomes a nice accent. Other times the inlay can be somewhat complex and it can really grab your attention. I suppose that’s why inlay has been around for thousands of years. For example, the Egyptians, Chinese, Persians, and other cultures used inlay millenniums ago to embellish their works ...

My wife and I have been working with Turquoise a good bit in our wood turned works. The project titled “Blue Starburst Bowl” received some great feedback along with a couple requests for a blog on our process of inlaying with natural stone. Unfortunately we have never set out to formally document our process so we don’t have any photos of intermediate steps. Therefore, I’ll do my best to describe the steps in detail. Starting outFirst you need something to inla...

18 days, and more research Ive finally arrived at the time when its time to put blade to wood. In part 1 I uploaded my sketch up version I fashioned, only to change. Im sure this will change some more. Never followed instructions in school, so why should I follow my own here?Included in this marathon of woodworking, will be a saw bench. I downloaded some plans for one from Christopher Swartz blog, Lost Art Press. I’ve selected a bunch of Cherry that was given to me, yes sometimes even ...
Now that I have written about basic bases and finished ends, lets address corners. Insides corners to be exact. There are many options for what to do with this common situation, as well as many different ways to accomplish the task. The basic three solutions include a blind corner, an open corner and a 45 degree corner. Each of these have an impact on how functional a kitchen will be. They also each have impacts on budget, or time spent on the shop. Since there are alot of different a...
There are a lot of photos posted in LumberJocks that are barely passable for letting everyone see what you want everyone to see. I use Irfanview as my default photo editor. It is not Photoshop by any stretch, but with Irfanview (a free program) I can improve a dark picture in 10 seconds or less. I tested this last week by improving a project photo where I couldn’t see much detail and I emailed it to the LumberJock member that posted it. He agreed it was an improvement and replaced ...
