    Cathedral window

    Well, I cut this pattern at it's original size instead of following my instincts and enlarging it. There were definitely several prayer moments during this one! It is 4-7/8" wide with the thinnest walls about 1/16th" thick. The wood is cherry and I have not applied any finish yet.

    I just finished this mission style window table, for lack of a better name. It is made from red oak, has mortise and thru tennons; and a classic oak stain with two coats of satin wipe on poly on the top. I intend to go back later and remake the drawer boxes using dovetails. I don't know why...

    Do most bandsaws have a tracking window?

    I posted a link to a craigslist saw, and noticed the newwoodworker review it linked to said the Ryobi was the only bandsaw Tom knew of that had a window to let you track the blade from in line with the top wheel. My steel city saw has one, and I just assumed all saws did. It makes sighting...

    Window Stool molding

    I'm trimming out the windows in the shop and of course it's my first time and I don't know what I'm doing. I'm obviously going to have to mill something to make the 3 1/4" window stool molding work, but why is there a beveled rabbet at the back? Not so much the rabbet, but why the bevel...

    Window mullion

    I need to find a place to buy a bit of muntins strip for a window I'm repairing. It's what I call "three-step" muntins, but thats likely not the correct name, seeing as how I made that one up. I am not familiar enough with the area yet to even have a clue as to where to shop for something like...
