Retired wood boatbuilder. Hobby furniture maker. I love to think outside the box and I love to do things I've never tried before. Almost every project I start involves design as you go flexibility and at least a couple of things that I hope I can accomplish but that I'm not sure I can. I try to use local hardwoods when I can rather than commercial "store bought" material. I like that it gives a feeling of heritage to the piece.

Well the wind was blowing and I did go sailing but it was somewhat spoiled by having to look at those doors. Between the poor marquetry and the just plain wrong colors in my veneer choices I knew I couldn’t live with them for long. So off I ...
My spring shop project is supposed to be a set of marquetry panels of Friendship under sail for the upper doors of my desk. However I’ve had a couple of repair / renos on the real thing interrupt me, this hatch cover being one of them. Well ...
Today I was pressing some marquetry that was 26” long. That’s not necessarily a problem with hot hide glue unless your press is only 20” square like mine. Fortunately when I designed my press, I made accommodation for pressing mu...
I was doing a shop cleanup today and ran into some old friends that I thought some of you might like to meet. These are shop made tools that I used when I was building wooden boats and date back to the early seventies when I was working at North A...
