Greetings & Salutations, Well it has taken about 4 days to make all of the first glue ups. Each row had 26 pieces in it and there were 17 rows and I wantedeach glue up to be in the clamps at least 2 1/2 – 3 hours before I took them out. I made 4 cauls out of 3/4 ply left over from another project and cut them just short of the over all length on one I screwed a piece to use as an alignment piece so the all of the final glue ups would be prettyeven on one edge. I put ...
Greetings & Salutations, I just got the news a little while back that my youngest nephew is getting marriedthis December. I am looking forward to that as it will be a good excuse to go toFlorida for some good times with some of the family. I wanted to come up with a different kind of gift but also wanted something thatI would not have to carry in my pickup. Being kind of practical since the P/U gets18 mpg and my Prius gets 51 mpg that would take a big dent out of the travel budget. ...
My youngest a while back accidentally knocked a lamp of the table and the ceramic lamp broke of course leaving me with just some hardware. I remake a wood lamp around the surviving hardware. Please watch and tell me what you think of the results. Thanks!
This week I decided to do some turning. I made 3 mallets on the new lathe. The mallets were made from Spalted Hickory, Walnut & Ash, and Walnut and Red Oak. I made thse mallets to give away to two great friends who have helped me every step of the way while I begin my Turning Journey. Robert Blanford & Richard Morley are New to the YouTube Scene and I strongly recommend you check out their channels and subscribe. Their videos are informative and helpful. And they are two great guys...
Yup. had a pair of legs already tapered on two sides. Got the other two legs done by noonish. Tapered with handplanes only, mind you. Set up a “work space” such as i have. A washer & dryer served as a staging area And laid out a few toys, er tools. That little piece of paper? THAT is all the “plans” I had, just the measurements for the aprons. Made tenons on one of the short aprons ( 24-1/2” long 1×4) so I would have a pattern...
I show the process of how I made a large toy top out of wood on my lathe. Come along and watch. These tops are a lot of fun and can have a great spin time. The first one I made went over two minutes. This simple project is sure to please any little ones you may know and they are a lot of fun for the older ones like us as well. The Big Top.
Hi gang, I know some of you have thought I fell over the edge of the world… Not at all. I simply haven’t had much blog time, or if I did have time, I didn’t have a lot of progress to report. That is what I’ve been ‘up to’, and who really needed to see yet another set of end grain boards in progress here on LJ’s? the LOML booked me into a show this coming weekend, and I’ve been out in the shop going through all of the necessary ...
This modular bookshelf is a great project for beginning woodworkers and you veteran woodworkers as well. Requiring only 2 boards to build and a limited amount of tools, this project can be made in a day or a weekend. the design can be modified by building more cubes or changing the orientation of the unit itself. Add some color and it makes a great display and shelving unit for a kids room. Give it a try.

The Type 17 Stanley #4 rehab is, for now, complete. For those with short memories, this is how it looked when we started this journey: The more I worked on this plane, the more two little sayings kept coming into my head:1. Like putting lipstick on a pig. – Every time I shined some part up the rest of it just looked uglier and uglier.2. Beauty is skin-deep but ugly goes to the bone. – I found pits inside pits. If I kept grinding away until every bit of ugly was off this pla...
