Turns out that my little girl can rock a spokeshave. She asked me to help her make a mallet for her to use in the shop. I thought that was a dandy idea, so we set to it. We glued up a few pieces of cherry for the head of the mallet. Then I showed her how to use a spokeshave on rectilinear stock, in order to take off the hard corners and make it more hand-friendly. For those of you wanting to get your kids to spend time in the shop with you, let them use a spokeshave. It’s the ki...
I was in Lancaster, Pennsylvania a few weeks ago and came across this most unusual Wood Shop I’ve ever seen. For starters, have you ever seen anybody replacing an electric motor on their drill press with an air one?? :) At the same time, some of the tools he had were more modern than mine (generator powered), yet there was not a single electric light in his shop. It is a 4 min video (showing his woodworking machines and his furniture/works for sale). Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/wa...

I was asked to build two standup desks for two coworkers. They already have desks provided and therefore wanted something that could just be placed on top of what they currently have. I designed a two tier desk extension and they really liked it. Here is the build video for those who are interested: View on YouTube

It’s been a quite a long haul getting all the bugs worked out but the first CNC cut chevy was delivered yesterday and the next three are ready to go. The plan here was to give my students an affordable choice to custom made hardwood “fine furniture” or alternatively an easier home build. I am pleased with the results and I am sure that this will lead to more people experiencing this tool and the fine work that it can do. I have built in arm height adjustment over a range of ...
During the Winter of 2000, I worked at a cabinet shop while in college. My introduction to pocket hole joinery was using a Porter Cable Pocket Cutter. Since then, I have been spoiled and have hated using Kreg jigs due to the tear out on the hole and the angled pilot hole that makes it hard to keep the surface flush . So I decided to build my own pocket hole cutter based on what I remember of the Porter Cable version I used 15+ years ago. Here is a link to the video https://www.youtube.com/...
