    Photo 1: Chasing After the Wind: Whew. What a morning. It is windy a lot of the time in Kansas, and out on the open prairie where I live, it is almost always windy. But, when the weather forecast is for "windy", you know it is going to be terrible, and it is today. "Blustery," they call it...

    I was commissioned by my fellow instructors to build a plaque using a picture they chose to give as a farewell to our Site Chief. We teach Demolitions so the picture is quite fitting. The plaque is made of walnut with a birch plywood back. Mitered splines out of maple, a Roman Ogee routed...
  9. Roman plane replica

    Here is my blog showing the construction and historical details of this re-construction. The iron and wedge are purely conjectural as these parts did not survive being in the bog for nearly 2000 years. I had great difficulty over the location of the cross-pin with respect to the back ramp. No...
  10. Columns for Julius Caesar

    I was asked to build seven columns for a local community theater production of Julius Caesar. They are 13 feet tall, octagonal, and fluted on all sides. I used the bird's beak method to create the angles of the staves. I think they came together very well, much better than I thought 12 foot...

    A Roman Plane I just wanted to share this lovely Roman Plane with interested Lumberjocks & suddenly I'm confronted with BLOGs, scripted windows & HTMLs and other stuff that the Romans would never have dreamed of. I certainly don't know what I'm doing but I'll give it a go. This unique Roman...
