Apologies for the time gap. I had to find my pictures. I was happy with the way the ribs turned out on this piece. Specifically how parallel each of them were and the fit of the miters. I used bending plywood to form a spacer for the curved dr...

We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. T.S. Eliot
I am an amateur woodworker who's main reward is learning and stretching my design and creativity. Each project is used in my home or given away to family. In the future I plan to donate some fine furniture items for charity auctions.
Generally I alternate between completing a shop project or two and a finished project like the Jewelry Armoire. Between these two types of projects I keep my shop maintained and do some housekeeping and sharpening. I always try to have a project on the bench no matter how small.
I had a terrific shop teacher at Fountain Valley High School (Orange County California: Mr. Elwin Tingy). Great guy. He had a huge reservoir of patience, and was as enthusiastic for his students' projects as he was for his own.
The Unisaw was a surprise Christmas gift from my wife four years ago. She is an artist and did all the research herself and paid for it out of proceeds of art sales. What a woman.

This is yet another item that I had no experience for and no idea how to execute. I did a lot of research, lots of Googling and YouTube-ing hoping to find a nice two-point router jig to cut the curves. Sure there was an incredible amount of vide...
How do you open this darn thing? Well the handles are built in to the ribs. Or the ribs have built in handles. I guess it is just a leap of faith that if you reach for what looks like a handle or a pull there will be enough room underneath to f...
The top and bottom are mirror images of each other and can be cut at the same time just like the shelves. You just need to mark each one (this side up) so they stay in alignment to make up for any imperfections in the shape. To begin I made a te...
Sorry folks. Surgery, recovery, PT equals an unforgivable delay. One of the many critical items on this project are the shelves. They not only support the drawers, but also connect the cabinet parts and determine whether the sides are going to ...
