    Shop expansion started

    Finally getting started on the shop expansion this week, hope the weather holds. Long story but since I live in the Historic District my options were limited by the zoning authorities. Size kept being whittled down so I have ended up with a 16x20 addition to the existing 12x30 building. The same...

    Wood Magazine Subscription Started

    I got my first issue of “Wood” magazine today with the special deal they ran back in January. I was late to the party and got it for $4.99 a year for four years but still a great deal. Just glancing through it and it seems like a very nice magazine. I like the trebuchet they show. Could be a fun...

    Dupont6480 Workshop started!!

    Background: Started to modify my 2 stall barn (no footings or slab) into a workshop. Received a lot of great advice recommending otherwise as I would end up with severe moisture and building structure issues in the future. I was advised to consult inspectors, contractors, builders, termite...

    Who or what started your WWing bug

    Who or what started your wood working bug, for me it was my my first daughter. We needed a crib for her. The cribs that I thought worthy of holding my child, was simply out of my price range. So off to sears we go. Skill saw and a square and a lot of sand paper and many hours of hard labor she...

    Very little dresser (PART 2)

    I have offically started construction! Scroll down to see the progress. I am looking for a good reason to build this dresser. I found it at a refinishers business about 12 years ago and fell in love with it. The guy said it had about 7 coats of paint on it and had no idea what he would...

    New Shop Started

    Well, after several delays, the new shop build finally got started on Friday, June, 25th. Because the road behind our house is designated as a 'collector' road (collecting for what, I can't say), we could not build where we (LOML) wanted to. Johnston County has decided that they 'may' want to...

    It started as one.....

    Last week the wife and I were at Lowes and she found a cedar planter she liked. There was no way I was going to pay $43 for this thing so I bought some cedar there. Next thing you know, she wants 3 more. My neighbor asked me to help him make some so we made 4, Now the in-laws want a couple...

    started whistles, but daughter had other plans...

    I am finally starting to catch on how to make these things... The top 2 are inspired by medieval artifacts. Still some fine tuning and finishing to be done, but they play scales (and songs in the right hands). The wide bore limits the range a bit (upper register is tough) but gives them...
