Hi there, I have been doing bits,n pieces of woodworking for years now and after recently finding this site was inspired by ‘Don’ to have a go at making a box.

I joined my local woodworkers club ‘Hawkesbury Woodcraft Co-operative’ and the guys there have been really helpful and supportive, there is also a really good array of equipment and materials to use at the club. I h...

Also the bandsaw and I had a disagreement and the bandsaw won the day. Thankfully no major damage was done and in a few more weeks I’ll be as right as rain. I have finally finished the poplar mockup and tommorrow the “real thing” begins in earnest. I made all of the changes that I not...
My wife wanted a bigger refrigerator with a bottom freezer. I agreed (he who doesn’t agree with his wife is a fool) because, I was also tired of bending down to get things off the bottom shelf, not having enough freezer room, and low efficiency of the current unit.

Since the refrigerators were white, the backgrou...

I made this simple veneer press in preparation for a project. The veneer press is similar to a couple I saw posted here on L.J. I don’t have any spare room left in the garage so I wanted a veneer press that could be easily disassembled and stored away and would not take up any floor space.
