    Hello All, This is the steam box that I use to bend the parts for the chairs that I am building. This box is quite a bit longer than it needs to be for my parts but I'm fine with that. I was just going from memory and pics of the steamer that was used at my classes which was shorter( 8') and...
  2. Hate loose tools (and accessories).

    Boys and Girls, just a quick dirty little project to ensure dust doesn't settle in the workshop… no long narratives (planned) nor videos taken (also not planned). C19 has coerced me into the purchase of another tool/jig that came "loosely" shoved into a tubular package. (Click on the link and...
  3. Stowable Router Table

    I am limited to a one car garage for my workshop so I make every attempt to make the best use of the space. A lot of this entails making my tools and accessories stowable. This was not only my first attempt at a router table but also my first attempt workshop project. My original plan was to...
  4. Spray Booth

    I used to spray my projects out doors but I was always annoyed by the wind/bugs/setup time. I finally became fed-up after spraying a painted project white and finding that a million bugs loved my project so much that they wanted to be a part of it forever! The booth is quite simple. Its a 12' x...
  5. Walnut and Maple End Table

    This is the first of 3 tables for the living room where the entertainment center is located. Construction is all solid wood except the top which is maple plywood. This was done to eliminate the wood movement problems with mitered frame of walnut. Drawer was made using dovetail construction...
  6. Claro Walnut Bowl With Wire

    Here is a Claro Walnut Bowl I did with a little something extra. I decided to try adding a second medium to this turning. Wire. This is my first attempt at any kind of carving in a LONG time. Tried to make this look like the wire was cinching the edge of the wood. Kinda like it was cloth? Wife...

    I have never been in love with choping mortises and hand cutting tenons, but after seeing the new price($929.00 + shipping) of the basic package of the original FMT jig, I think I just became a lot more comfortable with it. I was going to treat myself to the unit, (though the Domino users have...

    We built a desk, and it has 5 drawers that seem to work perfectly, and 1 that won't close unless you pick up slightly on the left side of the drawer above it. I tried to show a picture of the drawers all closed, and one where you can see how the middle one catches on the top one on the left...

    Starting with 4/4 cherry Thought I would share a bit of my day. My wife and kids are out of town for a short retreat and I had two days off work. Great combination for a woodworker!

    Adding long legs to the Leigh FMT From my blog: Sometimes a project calls for drastic action. This is exactly what I had to do, to allow me to cut integral tenons on very long rails for a project for a client. I normally work with the Leigh FMT on the workbench. But now I am using the...
  14. Hand Tools
    When it comes to dovetails, there are hand cut and there is everything else. The normal procedure for mortise and tenons is to use a mortiser/chisels and the tablesaw. I'm wondering about the perception of using the Leigh FMT Mortise and Tenon Jig.

    I hope this is the best place to post this answer to a question about the set up jig I made for my Leigh FMT Jig that I received from a prior post. The video should explain how I made the set-up jig and how to use it. Watch the Video

    I want to make my own Leigh FMT jig. It is very simply built so I am not going to re-invent the wheel and just make a duplicate from plywoods. I previously made a duplicate GRRipper and got flack for it because I was "Stealing money" away from an American company. As I will NEVER be spending...
