I was asked by several newbies if I would take some time to do a blog on building cutting boards that will cover the basics that may not get covered in the blogs/forums that detail how to do the real fancy boards that we all aspire to. So I’m going to try my best to hit the simple things that a novice trying to learn on their own may not think about or not realize until after they’ve made the mistake. It’s been a very long time since I’ve taken on a task like this – so please feel free to hel...

Recently there have been articles discussing tape measure maintenance, selection and how to use them in the shop. My opinion is to use them at the cutoff table for large crosscuts with a radial arm or chop saw, and leave them there. There should not be a dedicated place in your woodworking tool cabinet for a tape measure. The closest I would come would be a fabric tape to measure curved work. I worked in construction for a while and used a tape for everything, I just don’t see their pla...
[Above] This was my last log of elm in which I hoped to find some more spalted wood. The first thing I did was to grab my Australian Bowie knife and strip off the bark. It came off very easily as the log (2 feet long, 4 inch diameter ) had been sitting on the ground under leaves for several years. [Above] Then I put the log in its most stable position on its side and attached a 1×4 to each flank, making sure it was fairly stable and trying to have the boards parallel to the b...
Sometimes in woodworking you need a shape that just won’t work because of short grain issues, stock availability, design concerns etc. It comes to a choice of steam bending or bent lamination. When choosing bent lamination there are some concerns to consider. The First consideration is the form you wish to use to use for the glue-up process. I normally hate MDF with a passion, but for this application it works well. I have used cdx and a/c plywood, solid wood, and phenolic plastic t...
After I take the rails of the bending forms, I true up one edge and then rip them to size. I layout for the angled cuts on the curved ends, and then cut them with the miter saw. All the joinery for the curved rails are then cut with the Festool Domino. I also go through my clamping strategy for when I’m ready for glue up. As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

Adjustable Bench Hook Bench hooks are a very nice addition to a workbench. Sometimes for carving a small piece, a bench hook can be a bit too deep. Using a woodtek router bit (bit #942858I 14” shank) had for making jigs I routed two slots in a bench hook and drilled some holes for the hardware to slip in. I had thought about using a T-track inlayed in the hook for the adjustment, but I thought ...
