  1. The Wizard of Oz

    Another strange one… I work with a our local Children's Hospital on a fundraising play. This particular show was The Wizard of Oz. In one scene, the wicked witch watches as here sisters' legs (under the house) disappear - and the ruby slippers are now on Dorothy's feet The set was rented...
  2. Music Theater with curved oak stage

    This was a project that was a wild ride to say the least. The owner already had a show booked before we started. Long days commenced right away. I didn't see my kids awake for almost 2 months. I think during that two months the owner hired and fired five guys that were supposed to be there to...
  3. Wells Fargo Wagon

    Over the last 20 years or so, I have had various woodworking projects related to my involvement with a local charitable group. The group puts on a play every year that brings in close to $200,000 for our local children's hospital. One of my recent projects involved a play called The Music Man...

  5. Puppet Theater Improvement

    One of the teachers at our church's preschool asked if I could do something with a small puppet theater which was barely on this side of being an LBP (see bottom). I accepted the challenge. [Below] The first issue was the rod for the curtain. It simply rested on two dowels and was easily...
  6. Custom Design Built Home Entertainment Room

    When I orginally bid this project it began as a small simple bar, a little platform for the chairs and a small component cabinet, 4 months and 23,000 change orders later we have a product to truly be proud of. All of the woodwork was designed and constructed onsite out of my trailer workshop...
  7. Entertainment Cabinets

    My friend recently added a large addition to his house, and included a large basement. He asked me to build several items including these cabinets for his entertainment section. He has a 120" theater system that he wanted oak cabinets around it all, with tall shelving systems on both sides for...
  8. 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...
  9. Puppet Theater

    So, I got a call from a local parochial school volunteer about building a puppet theater that she found on the WWW (she sent a pic and dimensions also). Wishing to know how much it might cost, I hard balled the negotiations and settled on a receipt of charitable donation from the school for tax...
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    Ok you butcher block finishing guys. I made a bunch of cutting boards and trivettes. I read someones blog or project where they mix Butcher block oil and mineral oil 50/50. I did this last night and put this mixture on the front sides of all my cutting boards and trivettes. This morning I went...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I own a 17yo Craftsman air compressor (model: 919167240). It operates perfectly. Owners of this compressor are supposed to drain accumulated water from the tank after each use to prevent internal rust. Rust potentially weakens the tank walls and that creates the very real risk of explosive...

    On different types of Carpentry or How I learned to stop worrying, and hit things with hammers When I was a kid, I thought that "carpenter" just meant someone who works with wood. A general term, you know? I always thought of my grandfather as a "carpenter", since he had a little shop in a...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I need to make some room in my shop for another large tool. (It's 26×24, shoulda built it 26×42) I've got a Jet cabinet saw with the 5-6 foot extension on the right. (Melamine wrapped in iron?) It's got a Jessem router lift in it. The only thing it's missing is a slot for a miter gauge down near...
