A fancy box, a labor of love
After some fussing yesterday to get it to fit together properly without glue, decided to glue it up today after church, will let it cure all night and do more tomorrow.  need to cut the top off, and then add some horizontal corner splines out of wenge and cherry.  the vertical splines are of cherry, same wood as the rest of the box.  they will get cut off and sanded smooth.
This will be for my wife's, and later mine too, cremation remains.  have a plot purchased, and a marker stone ordered.

Goodell Pratt decal
I have acquired this old Goodell Pratt #7 breast drill.  Obviously it needs some restoration.  Problem is ... it still has a remnant of the original decal, and i would like to either retain it, or better ...  replace it.  I have searched the web, no luck, and i have posted the question on other forums.  Does anyone know where i can find a replacement decal?

Media stand - Cherry, Curly Koa, Curly Maple
This is a project I began about a year ago and recently completed so I figured a video was in order. Gotta' warn you this is a long video but it includes almost every step of the build process, including mistakes, midstream modifications, design changes, etc. Since the video is so long I have attached a few photos of the completed stand. Enjoy!

Table saw made dovetail joinery for a drawer
I thought I would try making TS cut dovetails.  I used a special grind (10-deg) TS blade, an Incra HD 1000 miter gauge, and a flush trim router bit.  I made a sled which attached to my miter gauge.  Using a marking gauge, I laid out the tail height on a sacrificial board a smidge higher than the material thickness, tilt my TS blade 10-deg, and raised the blade to the desired height.  I ganged my L/R drawer side boards and cut the tails simultaneous.

2022 W38 longleaf crafting
Typically I'll collect and mill / plane / scrape pieces until components are collected for several assemblies. Then lay out the table the night before. Tidy piles of parts. Glue. Clamps. Scrapers & chisels. Come first light, with hot fresh coffee, work until I'm out of clamps.After hearing my priorities are skewed, I reflected to resolution. And ordered more clamps.

American Woods by Romeyn B. Hough
I would normally install this topic in our "Woodworking Book Reviews" section of this forum, but since it's also a website I thought I'd share it here.

Adam Savage "first order retrievability":
20 some years ago, when I went out on my own as on-site service repair on furniture, I needed a tool kit for the van.
First try: I got a tool box with a lidded top, a couple of drawers and a tilt-out bin.  I estimated what tools I'd need for the job described, pull them out and carry them in.  I found in 5 minutes, I was back for something else, then another 5 minutes, for yet another tool.  Not very efficient.

Finally got to play...
Been trying to get some inventory built to go to a Thanksgiving weekend show. Initially started for last year's show but stuff kept getting in the way.
 
After spending most of the last two months commuting back and forth to Lost Wages to deal with parent health issues, I got these completed. Still need a bunch more but at least it's a start.

Maple decorative platter, a work in progress.
Did a few of these a while back but it's been a while. This is soft maple, turned to about 2.5mm or 3/32" and just over 12" diameter. It will get my version of a basket weave illusion done with piercing and pyrography.

Hand saws…
So the good thing that came out of my trip to Ohio was getting to poke around and find a few antique Disston saws.
Started working on the oldest of them today.  This is a 26”, 7 TPI Curved-Back saw.  The curve is similar to a D-8 but the blade isn’t as tall.
Saw is cleaned, straightened, and tensioned.  Waiting on files and a set tool to finish this up and put it back into use.
