  1. Rosco and his pig carving

    This was my first carving (except for some ball and claw legs). Rosco and his pig. I know that one of the most Challanging parts of a carving can be the eyes, so I thought Rosco would be a good one to start with.

    It's still kind of rough around the edges, and I'm still tweaking it, but here's my version of a sliding table for my table saw. It gives me about 31" before the saw blade. There are three 28" full-extension drawer slides (mounted flat), that control the range of motion before the blade. And...

    Half blind dovetails combine the corners, and the cove was cut by crossing the tablesaw blade at an angle, same with the lid, plus a little hand carving for the finger lip As it turned out the lid was a different type of mahogany so I had to play around with some dyes to get the color where I...

  11. Inside-out Upside-down Printer Drawer

    To get our printer off the desktop, I mounted slides inside a drawer and flipped it over on top of this little file cabinet and set the printer on the drawer bottom. I even had room for a small pencil drawer. It turned out great with some careful measuring. Since it is an all-in-one printer...
