It’s another early morning today. I suppose I am excited about all that is ahead of me today. It is a new day and a new week is beginning and I can’t wait to see what is in store. There are good things happening all around and allowing them to unfold before me fills me with anticipation. I am not as anxious as I have been in the past. After years of doubt and being unsure of so many things, I think that we have built a sturdy foundation for the business that is diverse enough...
Hi There! I for one, really like the way brass looks with a rich background of mahogany or dark oak. I also love engraved brasswork. This morning as I drank my morning six-pack of diet coke, I was checking my regulars and came across a link to a person who does steampunk stuff and had a procedure to do brass etchings of anything you can photocopy. It’s relatively simple, and can be done with materials you can get at the borgs. Below is the photocopy “negative” (le...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #518: Trial and Error and Finally Success
First of all, I want to thank everyone for all the nice comments and personal messages you sent me regarding these ornaments. Nothing makes the extra hours and effort spent more worth it than knowing that others enjoy what you made. Anyone who creates can attest to that. The long hours at the saw spent working on these (as well as my sore back!) are now just a faded memory, replaced by a sense of accomplishment and achievement. It really does me good to see how much everyone likes these, ...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1144: Finishing Up Drawing my New Designs
It’s funny how those appointments (no matter how early they are) can mess up the entire day. Yesterday I had an early eye appointment, and even though it only lasted for an hour or so, it took quite a while to get back on track. My eyes have been giving me minor problems lately and it was time anyway for my annual checkup. I find that I am having a bit of trouble reading the computer screen – even with my glasses or contacts and as a result, in the past weeks I have been send...
We built this project the first part of 2007. The house was built in the late 1800’s and is on the National Historical Registry. Its was kitchen, pantry, butlery and small office combined. The case’s were out of UV Maple with poplar frames and doors. All the drawers are dovetailed hard maple finished clear with Blum under mount slides. The crown was in three pieces, the reeded lower portion had X’s that were routed in with a jig. Pieces were then glued in and then carved...

In this episode I show you all of the ins and outs on using hardwood edge banding. I had to pick up a new trim router so once I make the new base I will show that to everyone.
I should have done this Blog before I did my last one.It would have been in order that way. I hope you still like it. Thank you Lumberjocks and Happy woodworking.
Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...
One of the people that my dad works with in my company has asked me to make for him a Pen complete with a leather case + a wooden box for his boss. I guess that he thinks that a good gift will improve his chances of keeping his job. Either way, i have to make it really good. He has given me pretty much free reign on what wood to use etc. So this will be an important project for me because it is one where i can really see if i’m any good at designing, etc. I ca...
