I did some work on mom recipe box today! I try resawing on the table saw then I finish the cut by hand, I am doing a lot of hand work on this project! Note I dont remend resawing on the table saw it’s not the best method.
I have used the glue and sawdust and made my own fillers. I read about using epoxy and sawdust and gave it shot and this is what I came up with. Enjoy—http://blip.tv/file/3705398
A quick little video about a new finish I stumbled upon and I truly think this is a great product. I can not say enough about the way this thing finished. Check it out-http://blip.tv/file/3702906
I had a great and satisfying day. One box I wasnt totaly pleased with I left in my shop so I saw it everytime I entered so I could assess what I wanted to do with it and I finaly end up taking a hammer and knocking the feet off it and now Im super pleased with it! Go’s to show design can come in wierd ways!I also fixed two problem drawers on one of my cabinets which In turn led to some new tricks I have for fitting my drawers!All of this just getting ready for my craft show this weekend...
I had a couple decent walnut logs dropped off a few months ago in a mixed load. They were butt logs that had grown together at the very base. The guy was smart enough to bring the base too. I have looked at this chunk of wood off and on, knowing I wanted to cut table top slabs from it. I could have done that with a big chainsaw, but that really sucks. I wanted to stand it on the mill and slice cookies…but it was just too big for that diameter wise. Over 3’ x 4’...my mill ...
Hello again. The glue-up went well. So did the cleanup and sizing of the smaller squares. So I decided to try a dry run of a patch of the snakes pattern. Sawed up 1/6th of my stock netting 15 large squares and 14 small (7 x walnut, 7 x maple). Played around a bit and this is the result.Some of the maple wasn’t the lightest in the world and I hope the contrast holds when its finished.Patterns in the layout have emerged which should make things easier come glue-up time, such as every larg...
The Commission About the beginning of May, I met with a friend of a friend at their new photography studio in Fairbanks, Alaska. Heath and his wife Audrey worked the last several months to establish their business in a new location and they had a need for some specialized woodworking. Between the two, it’s obvious that they have a complimentary advanced sense of design and spacial relation. On entering the new studio and office of Focus Unbound Photography, it’s immediately apparen...

Howdy fellow sawdust makers, I just completed my new video, “Building a Maloof Inspired Low-back Chair”, and thought you might enjoy seeing the introduction sequence (filmed just outside my workshop). Enjoy! Video>
Ok so I have heard a lot of people talk about making end grain cutting boards, and most of them have horror stories relating to disastrous results from running them through a planer. I myself have made no less than 14-15 end grain cutting boards and I ran every single one through my Delta portable thickness planer with very little issue. Of course the last edge that comes out will be “flaking” off but that could be solved by adding an extra piece of sacrificial stock during the ...
