• spice caddy #7........
    #7 is almost ready for a finish and I'll start on #8 tomorrow. As of this writing, my wife hasn't said she wanted anymore than 4 I am giving to her. I'll have 4 for me, one is toast, one is painted and the other two will be natural.  I only need one and I'll pick between #7 and #8 as to which one I'll give as the birthday present. The other two will held in reserve for last minute... Read more

  • chest of drawers, some background & history
      More about the chest of drawers. The above photo shows how far I got this week. There’s a staggering number of pieces of wood in this thing, and several dozen more to come. Trent got me thinking about it in these terms, and I wasted a lot of time counting the individual bits – … Continue reading chest of drawers, some background & history... Read more

  • Dark Chocolate and Sponge Cake (33)
    The build has been continuing steadily. The past month has been characterized by thinking I am nearly at the final assembly stage, but then finding yet more details to attend to first. Time just gets eaten up in the most amazing ways. A month ago I confidently told the client that the cabinet would be … Continue reading Dark Chocolate and Sponge Cake (33) →... Read more

  • got a wee bit cold.......
    Last night was so cold I had to shut the bedroom window. When I got up at oh dark 15 it was 45°F (7.2°C). It was brisk walking out to the truck to go to work. I briefly thought of getting a jacket but said no. It was supposed to get up to 70° (21.1°C) and I didn't want to carry it home. Tonight it is forecasted to be as cold as it was last night. The rest of week... Read more

  • A Rant And A Confession For My Conscience...
    Not what I sat down to write this morning...this round's been in the chamber a while, I guess it finally triggered.Sponsorships, or the illusion or assumption of them is a weird stigma inside this smallish hand tool community. There is a general distaste for them, especially for someone at my level of exposure. Yet everyone can still love Nick Offerman no matter how many Sling TV commercials he makes. I realize there are differences, of course there are differences. The... Read more

  • Making A Three-Tiered Auger Bit Box - Part 2
    After having made the trays that would cradle the bits, I started on the box.  The plan was to make a single box that I would cut into three levels after glue-up.  It started with some careful layout.  On the box ends, I laid out two 1/8" grooves that would house the shelves and two 1/8" cut lines that would guide my cutting the box apart.Box end layout on its inside faceThe two grooves cut - I should have made...

  • Another use for the sash fillister
    I don't usually need anything more than a gauge line to work to for bringing a board to thickness but, on jobs that require abnormal precision, sometimes a more distinct visual reference is called for. One technique that I have used in the past is to bring a board to width and rough length, flatten a reference face then use a sash fillister plane to cut a rabbet into the opposite side... Read more

  • A Means To An End
    I’ve been building this bench for so long that I’m a little sad to see it come to an end. It strange, usually projects tend to drag towards the end but this one really accelerated, so apologies for cramming a lot into this last update. It’s been a challenging build but also a rewarding one. What i’ve liked most is that some elements have just fallen into place. The asymmetry in the top was dictated by the size of stock... Read more
