  1. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hi, LJs… I'm just beginning construction on a couple serving trays for Mummy Dearest's birthday. The trays will be mainly cherry, with walnut and tiger maple accent strips. I'd like the finish to be natural (no stain but some gloss). However, the trays will probably be used for dinners...

  7. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I've started to cut wood for a wooden briefcase. My original plan was to miter/bevel all six sides, glue them together to make a 'solid block' and then cut the top off. All sides would be smoothed with a 1/8" roundover bit for a 'seamless' look on the edges. Splines would be cut into the...

    The woodworking show is in town this weekend (Saint Louis, Missouri, USA, Earth). I have been going long enough that I recognize various vendors and they remember me. If they are not too busy, and today was not a busy day, I stop by and talk with them. I picked up various "rumors" that I...

  11. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I know that there is a cutting board design software for Windows machines. I looked last night for Mac-compatible software and didn't see anything other than to install a Windows OS on the Mac such as Parallels. That seems like a solution, but I'm not willing to invest that time, money and...

  13. Joinery
