    Found a way I like to cut straight-end, non-through rip and crosscuts in plywood This is probably a common technique, with a name, but it only occurred to me today. I gave it a shot, and it worked out really well. I'm going to use it from now on for non-through cuts, and by that, I mean rips...

    The Design In response to Hank Gilpin's advice on my Jewelry Armoire in the October 2010 issue of Fine Woodworking, I decided to, instead of fixing the Jewelry Armoire, to design a new cabinet that implements Hank's suggestions. This "Asian Cabinet", as I am tentatively calling it, is smaller...

    Woodturning - Slim Vase Been awhile since I had shop time. The last three weeks have been pretty much on call and vacation with the kids so it feels good to get back to work on some things. As I progress on the lathe, I have been wanting to experiment with more delicate turnings. Much of my...

    How to Make an Inside-Out Ornament I have wanted to try to make one of these ornaments ever since I first saw them. They are so interesting, and everyone asks- "how did you do that"? I had trouble understanding a lot of the how-to descriptions, and even the videos were hard to follow. I found...

    I really want to know what you think about this! I just completed a video that shows How to Flatten Veneer using hot aluminum plates. This really is an amazing technique! I am very impressed by how well it works. My friend Tom Schrunk showed me this technique and he was nice enough to...

    White on brown I started learning kolrosing on my coping saw and am pretty happy with the way coffee grounds look against the pale yellow citrus. But I took a look at Del's color kolrosing page and decided I'd play with that a little. I found a little time this morning to experiment with a...

    I'm about to tackle my first inlay and wanted some suggestions. I've read up and watched several how-to videos on how to do it. I have no problem cutting the actual piece that is being inlayed into the project. I use that piece to trace the layout with an Xacto knife on the project. Most of...

    Testing Creative Commons Licensing code on LJ Blogs... Ok, so I'm not typically litigious, and I'm happy to share images of the things I work on, but lately, I'm finding that covering my @$$ legally makes more and more sense… (it hasn't been a friendly business year…) So, I'm going to start...

    Sharpening chisels-forget weaker micro bevels Sharpening chisels-forget weaker micro bevels Controversial though it may seem, and though adopting micro-bevel methods for sharpening chisels may seem to make sense, a freehand convex bevel actually gives exactly the same sharpness as any...

  15. Finishing
    My wife loves rustic furniture and I've picked up a couple of finishing techniques to give a shabby chic country sort of look but I've never been able to accomplish anything I'm "proud" of. How to you get a natural rustic antique look? Anyone have any suggestions on products they've used, or a...
  16. Hand Tools
    I'm new to using hand tools, and I just got my first block plane last month. Its a Wood river from woodcraft. I've been having difficulty setting it up, but finally got to where it appeared I was getting even shavings across the width of the blade, and they seemed to be translucent. I setup a...

    I have a quick question on technique that I'm sure is simple, but I haven't figured out how to do it safely yet. I have a bunch of 3/4" pine boards I ripped down to 2" wide to use for some quick trim on my old built-in workbenches in the garage. 3/4" is a little thick for my liking in this...

    I've been playing on the lathe with double chucking spindles. Was turning a piece of scrap pine (2×4) 1 1/2 inches square by 40 inches long seeing how thin I could make the spindle. I learned not to put too much pressure on the tailstock because that tends to bow the spindle which can increase...
