  2. wall sconces

    I just made 5 of these for our living room. Mahogany with mulberry paper lamp shades. The construction went very smoothly - pieces were finish planes to thickness using a homemade thickness planing jig.

  6. Shop-made Cutting Gauge-Hamilton Style

    If you're like me, you picked up a vintage marking gauge at some point in your woodworking life only to tear the wood fibers with the pin head. Maybe, like me, you did some research on refining the pin…then filed it to the shape of a half-moon profile. That worked ok but the tool still didn't...

  10. Marking/Cutting Gauge

    One of the habits I've developed over the years is to stay focused on one project at a time. This is the only way that I don't end up with a shop full of half finished projects. With ADD like mine I can easily get distracted by new exciting project ideas. This past year I spent a lot of time...

    I am in the process of building a fishing net, and needed to make a groove around the hoop of the net for the string with which I will be attaching the net.

    I have a Crown cutting gauge, not a pin, but a knife with a brass wedge that holds the knife in place. The dang brass wedge keeps coming out. It's not a heavy piece, so I don't want to pound on it with a mallet or some such. How do you keep your brass wedge secure?
