    New Year...New Hobby I have been known to take up a hobby or 37. At 42, on the cusp of 43, and well into the 'balding' years, I have decided that, in lieu of a midlife crisis, I would take up woodworking. Don't get me wrong, a new car and a 27 year old with huge, firm, hands would be wonderful...

    New Saw My new tenon saw arrived the day before Thanksgiving… just in time to try out on the tenons for my sister's table. Never had I hand-cut tenons before - I always did them on my tablesaw with a dado blade - but these stretchers were really too long to do that easily for me. So I dived...

    Design Plans Hello. These are the plans I have for a new workbench. I think I have decided that now is the time to build a bench I won't need to remake. I have done lots of studing on workbench designs and could not decide between the German bench and the Roubo because of the leg vise. I had...

    Introduction At the beginning of August, with the discovery of mold in my kitchen, I began building new countertops. The wood for this work all came from my inlaws barnwood. After getting the countertops glued up, I was interupted by life (teaching, UPS, kids, divorce, and more). Where I...

    Day 1 After debating with myself for the past 6 months or so, I finallly decided on a design and got the nod from my CFO to go buy the lumber (it helps that my local Menards had a sale on everything in the store, including lumber). I won't go into all the details and back story on the blog...

    Milling 6/4 Rough Sawn Lumber Parts After several days of study and analysis, I decided I would make a trestle table for my granddaughter Torrence. It boiled down between this relatively small trestle table or a shaker style writing desk with two drawers under the table top. Each would be...

    Dovetails! I am finally starting a new project. Lately, I have been doing more home maintenance, painting walls which is kind of boring. I want a cabinet to store various office supplies and that matches the style of my existing office furniture. This will be a cabinet that sits on the floor...

    Thoughts on the Hollow Chisel Mortising Machine (updated 11-14-2007) In a recent Blog by Obi, he discussed using a router to cut mortises, and this started up a discussion, in which Don cautioned against getting a Hollow Chisel Mortiser. I think there are good thoughts on both sides of this...

    I may have mentioned that I added a lot of machines to my shop last spring, summer, and fall with money saved on utility bills due to the extremely mild weather. For example, my September bill was $400 less than this January bill. Over seven months I bought a band saw, table saw, planer, cast...
