My son asked me to make him a chess set. I used his request as a long awaited excuse to buy a lathe and learn to turn wood. This chess set was my first experiment. There are 7 videos so far in the series.

Now that the carcass for the tables are just about complete, I set out to build the doors. First, I re-saw some cherry to 1/32” for the layers of the panel. I make a form and then using bendable plywood and the veneer, they go into the vacuum bag to make the curved doors. Then a skin of quilted cherry veneer goes on the front and back of the doors. This was a lot of fun, and I hope I don’t bore you by showing the whole process. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! ...
Here is my latest video on working with eCabinets cut list in excel.Formatting eCabinets Five Piece Door Breakdown with excel Part 4 In this video I will show you how I use the replace method as well as the advanced filter unique records only and the SumIfs functions with excel vba. With these three functions I will be able to reduce the door and drawer front part list from over 200 rows of data to less than 100. So be sure to watch the entire video.
This is the method I use whenever I have to sharpen my hand planes, chisels, and knives. View on YouTube
Butterfly Mortises I know it has been a while but I am finally back to my table build. The top of the table has 20 butterflies mortised into the top. In the original piece, these went all the way through the top and may have actually helped to hold the top together, but it is more likely that they were probably just decorative, as Barnsley has used them in several pieces. My friends all warned me that it would be much better to just rout a quarter inch deep or so, as going through ...
This is the start of a build for an end table. It will have curved front doors, a curved drawer, and the doors and drawer will have a book matched veneer. In this video, I start by pattern routing the front pieces, and then work on the case construction and the solid cherry book matched side panels. The case is put together with all mortise and tenon joinery, and even a few blind dovetails. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’ve got going on in...
View on YouTube This is an easy-to-build dust separator with a baffle. It works because the incoming air is forced around the outside wall, where the heavier dust and chips fall into the large trash can below. When driven with a blower like I use, the baffle removes the need for a standalone dust collection system (which not everyone has the money, space, or power to accommodate). When used with a shop-vac, this simple dust collector will greatly prolong the life of your filters and preve...
