  2. Spills

    I guess technically this is a project … after all it is made of wood! Having recently completed my spill plane ... I've been enjoying the creation of spills … lots of spills!

  7. 1750's Dressing Table

    This is an 18th Century Style Dressing Table. This was built using the same tools, techniques and finish that would have been used in the Year 1750. That means NO power tools, sandpaper or Polyurethane. It does mean hand planes, scrapers and home made varnish topped with Beeswax. Oh, and...

    Does anyone know if this: http://www.rockler.com/wixey-remote-digital-readout is compatible with this: http://www.rockler.com/triton-3-1-4-hp-dual-mode-plunge-router? I really like my TRA001, because it's a beast and its original base is a good facsimile of a router lift. I'd like to attach...
  9. Hand Tools
    In keeping with the "unplugged" motif, I want to build a hand crank drill press like the one reportedly depicted in Siever's 'Il Pianoforte…' 1868. This is most likely a late 18th or very early 19th century design given the fact that steam power was available way before 1868. I'm trying to...

    Some Joinery Pictures There seemed to be a lot of interest in my 18th century French joinery post so I thought I'd throw out some progress pics. They are fairly self explanatory if you have watched the video so I won't add a lot of words but feel free to ask if you have questions. Trial...

    Hi all, I'm in the market for a Grizzly Bandsaw. I am looking at the Grizzly G0513ANV (the anniversary model) and the Grizz G0513X2. The anniversary model is the exact same saw as the GO513. Im not sure if another 300 dollars is worth the extra cast iron trunions and wheels and other add ons...
