Designing a Jig

Hello All,

With my new found love of using a hand plane, has come the realization that a jig might be helpful in holding the wood. So tonight I designed one. The picture is a little bit hard to see, as the scan is only fair, but tomorrow I hope to be able to put the whole thing together and then it will make more sense.

Brian, It looks promising. I look forward to your updates.
Dennis, you got a pic or link to what you are talking about?

Tonight I felt Clever

Hello All,

Tonight I had the tiniest of triumphs. I love it when I am able to come up with a clever clamping solution. I am not sure why, but each time I do, I feel great about it. That is all that happened tonight, I figured something out and then had to write about it.

A small success tonight, which made me feel very clever. http://su.pr/6YPgV9

Sorry Brian, but I don't see the idea you are trying to get across. I can't tell which one is the sawhorse, or the jig, or your work. And for the life of me I can't see any triangles that you mention. I'm sure its just me, hopefully just a brain fart.

Thanks Brian, it makes sense now. :)

Hello Long Lost Friends

Hello LJs,

I have not posted in a long long time. I used to post every night, but eventually my blog was no longer about woodworking, just additional chapters of my Henry Wood Detective novels.

Back in October I got a job which required leaving my home. The long commute really shortened my days and I lost my 'Woodworking Time'. I had only enough time to write every day.

On Monday I went to the Woodsmith store and picked up a couple of magazines and a nice piece of cherry. I intend to make a few more tiny boxes to give away to promote the release of my first novel. 'The Henry Wood Detective Agency' got its start right here on Lumberjocks and now I am about to finish up the 3rd in the series. (All three should be released this summer, with at least the 1st one having a print edition.)

I wanted to thank everyone who encouraged me and followed Henry on his adventures. So Thanks. Tonight I wrote a blog post with some of the details about how Henry Wood came about and where he is now, if anyone is interested.

Thanks,

Brian

p.s. I will however keep posting anything with woodworking foibles. :) Monday I start my new tiny boxes!
Brian, welcome back. I have enjoyed some of your recent boxes. However, I'm wondering what business a novel has on a site focused on woodworking. I'm sure it is a good read, but wouldn't there be a better place to talk about it and promote it? Just a thought. :)
