Time to cover my mistakes with corbels. I cut the tenons first. It is easier to hold onto a longer workpiece. Below I’ve laid out the desired curves. Here is how they are cut out on the band saw. Here is how the will be positioned. The pieces are too small to try to use a pattern and flush bit on the router table. So I use a drum sander kit on the drill press. This worked better and faster than I expected. Here is a quick look at how the upper corbels will be positioned....
I made a simple framed tray to hold some glass candle holders. Click here to see my video. Let me know what you think. Thank you Paul Pomerleau
- Making a Slab Coffee Table I have a very nice walnut slab that I plan to make into a coffee table. I am happy to say that flattening a slab of wood with a router in my shop was even easier that I thought it would be! Not only was it easy, but the results were great! This is one of those tasks where an adjustable height workbench came in very handy because setting it to a very low height made it easier to move the router across the slab. The slab is a slice out of a tree, some p...
Here is a video I just finished on Center Keyed Box Joints. One of the harder things about box joints is getting an equal sized key on both the top and the bottom. Here I show how to get equal sized keys regardless of the height of your board or the width of your dado stack. It is a really cool way to do the joints and the result is as decorative as it is functional.

Hi, I’m a Swedish part time cabinetmaker. This is the first time I can present a “proper” documentation of a project. Enjoy :) https://youtu.be/-RKHqrMsfjY
I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...
We’ll its finally finished. I’ve been busy since my last entry, but I kept pecking away at it. I had some issue with the finishing. I had the top all done, and decided to add one more coat. I had wet sanded it down with 400, and wiped on the final coat. The coat did not cover like when I was brushing it on, so I let it dry for 6 hour and brushed on what I thought would be the final coat. When I came back, the finish had bubbled in several spots. So, back to sanding. I...
My son asked me to make him a chess set. I used his request as a long awaited excuse to buy a lathe and learn to turn wood. This chess set was my first experiment. There are 7 videos so far in the series.

This blog entry is a continuation of an earlier blog post titled Making Two Sets of Heirloom Saws: The Gent's Saw and The Table Saw. The making of these saws is an ideal topic for a blog series, but I unfortunately didn’t think of that when I made the original post. I’ve now turned this into a series, but there is no way to go back and incorporate the original post into the series. That is why this post shows as #1 of the series even though it is about the third saws in the sets....
