So my 3 sheets of veneer arrive and I open them to inspect them. I opted to use 2 ply 4×8 sheets to save time vs. laying up my own veneer. Out of the 3 sheets I rejected two, one walnut sheet which was supposed to be flat cut and the maple sheet which I paid a premium for to have wider leaves. The walnut piece didn’t have any cathedraling in it at all and was made up entirely of the quartered portion of a flat cut piece of veneer. The supplier worked with me to get me repla...

A good friend of mine and local Accordion player of note, Tom Pearce, has ask me to collaborate on the refurb/ upgrading of an old instrument He’s done the initial separation of the parts He has asked if I can make a new carcass for it. This could be expensive and time consuming in solid wood (the first idea) but looking at it the plywood body is in good condition with some work needed on the plastic coating (green bit). Tommy is after a natural wood finish instead so I...
It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. Charles Darwin…(1809 -1948) English Naturalist Sometimes as woodworkers we face a variety of situations that require some versatility and a little thought.

There are times that I feel quite comfortable making crosscuts on the 10 inch table saw using one of my cross cut sleds. Howe...

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...
No it was not an offer of free wood. A posting on one of my blogs last night was a offer of most immense proportions. The offer was to allow me to use his shop and his time to work on a project for my wife. Here was his offer I immediately responded yes. The LumberJock was none other than our respected Lee Jesberger I mean here was a LumberJock that built 36 kitchens for one customer. Here was a LumberJock that built a $100,000 kitchen for another customer. He was allowing me to be h...
The next box in the series Oops!, A Llittle Cabinetree, and now Facets is on the build. It had to be started because I’ve been obsessing too much on the finish of Cabinetree and in order to amuse myself between coats I had been so bored I had started making micro plywood and then micro boxes and banding. It had to stop.So the other day I started to think about what the next logical step would be keeping the theme and some of the aspects of the others but going a very different direction...
