Well I’m back home in Canada and after getting a bunch of household maintenance jobs out of the way and spending a very long time getting the surfaces perfectly filled, I have finally started on the finishing. It won’t be long now! Here are a few shots and a couple of videos I made today. At this point there are only two or three bodying sessions in the polish but it is coming up really well. This is the first trial fit of the burgundy pig suede that will...
In this video I will show you how you can clean up the macro that we recorded in part 2. Then add some code to speed it up dramatically. I will also show you how you can create some message boxes that will ask you if you wish to hide the edge banding and inset carvings columns. If you click yes then it will hide that column.Here is the link. https://youtu.be/6BP_ds9oVzM
Jay Bates is another one of those people who knows how to build something. I don’t recall how I originally found him, but his habit of using recycled materials sure doesn’t hurt in the realm of why I watch his videos. He’s also known for a series of videos he made about using Sketchup. (I’ll likely be accessing those since a recent computer crash left me without AutoCAD. It was an old version and likely won’t work on my Windows 8 machine.) Jays current vi...
I’m starting to restore an older logging saw. The handles were extremely dried out and the blade is of course rusty. I took both handles off and gave them a good inspection for cracks or anything else that would make them break. With nothing found wrong I moved on to the next step and that was a basic and quick cleaning. I used 320 grit sand paper to clean any rough edges off and get a smooth finish. Using boiled linseed oil I coated the handles heavily and let the oil soak it. what a d...
Well in part 1 I went over cutting a tenon. Part 2 included how to chop the mortise. This time grab your drills and a few dowels as we pin the mortise and tenon joint together. This is as easy as eating cake, without all the calories. View on YouTube
Join me for another walk through the wood shop. This time showing progress being made during the build your own chair course. Rocking chairs from Curly Maple + Wenge & Walnut + Curly Maple. Also a few prototype tables I’ve designed, which are oh so close to assembly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1gyDhW1Ghw
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJA-xOp61yQ This week, I got some work done mounting the hardware, and getting the back panel worked on for the Victorian Desktop. I also got my Stanley #55 out and sharpened a few of the molding irons. I did a couple of practice pieces in each size. I used the large molding iron to cut some longer pieces that I plan to use for a poster frame.

We had some nice weather today so the shop door was opened and sanding and finishing of the second door commenced. Once that was done they both got a good waxing along with the channels. Then the back was glued in place and with some accidental interior squeeze out issues cleaned up I now have a functional saw till with two tambour access doors. So easy a toddler can use ‘em lol. He spent the next 10 minutes opening and closing them. He even moved his saw into the ...
