    A christmas present for the FIL

    Well awhile back, I was able to pick up a mini-lathe used for one of Tom's reviews. I just could not resist the opportunity to get the FIL started down the turning path. Knowing that he would need to keep the lathe in the garage (and his garage is cleaner than my kitchen) I decided to make a...

    Bedroom finished

    You may remember the bed I finished a few weeks ago. And the dresser I have now completed the nightstands and actually finished the set. I do still have a computer desk to complete, but I will wait a bit for that. I'm not sure what you would call its construction since it incorporates...

    Bedroom continued....

    You may remember the bed I finished a few weeks ago. This is the continuation of that theme. I'm not sure what you would call its construction since it incorporates both faceframe and what I would call furniture elements. All I know is it is very sturdy. I have not done the drawers or...

    For the want of a few pages

    A couple weeks ago I bought the December 2006 issue of Popular Woodworking magazine. I typically don't grab that one, but the cover mentioned building a solar kiln which I have been reading up on. I set the magazine aside and picked it back up last Friday and began searching for the kiln...

    A new box

    I made this box for my son's girlfriend. The wood is walnut and cherry and while I think it turned out decent, I sure learned a few more things. One being that solid brass hardware is very costly. I wish I had a better camera set-up so you could see it better, but alas I can't ever seem to...

    Pen/Pencil and a question.

    I bought a bag of pen blanks from Woodcraft the other day and got some wood that I do not recognize. I went ahead and turned a couple and really liked how it turned, it was like butter it cut so smooth. The wood seems a bit oily also which may explain it. So would anyone care to enlighten me ...

    What would you suggest ?

    Pretty much all my woodworking has been using power tools, but I have seen where a good hand plane could have really helped. I really have no idea where to start. What I'm asking is....If you were going to buy 2 or 3 planes, what would they be ? (not necessarily bargain basement, but no...

    Found this DeWalt Planer on the Columbia SC Craig's list. At 150.00 asking it seemed in good shape and a very good deal. This is not mine. I just saw it there.

    Tenoning jig

    I was able to take advantage of Woodcraft's sale of this jig. And while I had not read much about it, I have to say I am impressed. The directions seemed well written and the unit is very solid. I was able to get it set up for my unusual saw in hardly any time. It sure added alot to my...

    Pen/Pencil set

    My first attempt at this and while it seemed easier than I had thought it would be, I still had some issues. I had problems estimating how close to stop the turning to the barrell's to allow it to be exactly the correct size after sanding. Is there a general rule to this ? I was using several...

    China hutch (finished)

    You may remember me asking about this.... Well I started with my representation of it. I had to alter it's original diminsions to fit my spot, but I hope I have kept the overall look of the piece. It's still a work in progress, but here is where I'm at. As usual please look past my paltry...

    How would I do this ?

    This looks to me my next project. But as it will be my first time with something like this, I was wanting to get some thoughts from you guys. I intend to do a frameless construction (a first for me) and pretty much all of it looks reasonable except the sides appear to be a framed panel...
