  1. Yesterday, Friday, we picked up around 70 BF of mesquite, a few BF of pistachio and several 5” bowl blanks of differing species to haul to IL on 11/6. Will bring back a load off walnut, cherry and maple. My back is sore. Now, relaxing in the beautiful sun in Tucson. Gonna get to 85 glorious degrees, today. Monday, we head back to the mesa, where it'll be 67°. Not bad....yet.
  2. My son approached me last month and asked if we could build a desk for his bedroom for this upcoming school year, he is planning on a ton of homework and being in 10th grade and all, the work is going to get harder and harder. He asked me to help him build the desk just before I went into the hospital back in early June, I was in bad shape for the first few weeks coming out of the hospital and meanwhile he was asking me when we can start the desk, bless his little soul and heart, as crappy as I was feeling, he felt that ol Dad could get up and go and power through it all with a desk build. I had to put it off, with the way I was feeling, it wasn't even safe for me to be out there in the shop, and the fact that he asked me during that time period, and asked a few more times, indicates I was putting on a pretty positive attitude show for the family, despite how I was feeling. So, now that I am feeling pretty ok, much better than before, me and the boy went to the lumber yard and picked up a few cherry boards. The desk will be cherry, with walnut legs, he wanted two tone. Actually he wanted a Walnut desk, but once we got to the yard, the walnut was just too expensive, so he came around to cherry. We have a budget and we needed to stay within. And it so happens that I had some left over walnut so we'll incorporate the walnut into the mainly cherry desk somehow, thinking possibly the legs will be walnut. I had my boy rip down the boards on the Shopsmith, he did pretty good, burned the cherry on one edge and I then I took the second board and showed him how to use moderate steady feed rate and also keeping it against the fence. Once we had the boards sized, we chose one edge to join, the boards will be cut in half, and folded against each-other and glued edge to edge. I showed my son Jeroid how to handle the big No. 8C, he knows how mostly as he worked with me often years ago, but many years have gone by since he's been by my side in the shop, so picking up the plane again took some practice, fortunately we left the board wide by an 1/8" because I knew Jeroid was going to need practice room to get the edge right. Jeroid took a few passes on the edge and did pretty good, he had a few issues keeping the plane in constant contact with the edge, but he figured it out, I just stood back and let him error, and figure it out. He did. He really got the hang of it, and started to enjoy the process. By the last couple passes he had some shavings singing from the plane, I could tell he felt really good about what he was doing. The edge did get a little off, so I showed him how to get back to 90 with a little lateral adjustment of the plane iron, and he brought it back to square in about 4 or 5 passes. After he joined the boards, we cut them down and glued them up, that is where we are at right now, we have two desk ends, next we'll get the inner dividers joined and glued up. Thanks for reading along, seeya all next time!
  3. Local habitat store had some dowel rods for a buck a piece. Got these Maple and Cherry ones in my stash now.
  4. Today I made a band saw box out of a piece of domestic cherry fire wood. Herb
  5. My wife and a good friend have a birthday coming soon and I wanted to make them something different/special. The 3/8” thick tray sides are splayed 20 degrees with box joints. The splayed box joints are inspired from a project in a 2009 Woodsmith magazine. The woods are walnut and cherry. The finish is (1) coat BLO and (2) coats clear shellac. Thanks for looking. Danl

    Clamping this thing together took some effort due to size and angles. I made this jigs to help pull the thing together.
  11. I had sooo much fun with the project, for Colonial Wall Box Part 1 click on the proceeding link. After the getting the parts cut out in the Part 1 post, I sanded the pieces that were going to be on the inside portion of the box area to 400. I like to sand before assembly anything that may be hard to sand after assembly. Once I got the parts sanded, I glued them up and let sit over night. Once it was all set up, I went ahead and constructed the base and routed a recessed 1/4 round profile around the front and sides, and glued and screwed the base to the box. I used dark colored straight slot number 6 screws. countersunk flush so in case the recipient wants to set the box on a table instead of hanging it on a wall, the screws wouldn't hit the surface. I like using straight slot screws in woodworking, it just seems correct to me, and classy. Before I assembled the base on the box, I took to sculpting the edges and the upper neck. The upper neck was done with a round file and cleaned up with a half round and then sanded. If I had a cigar shave I would have used it, someday I want to get one, Veritas has some wonderful cigar shaves. I love the way the lines turned out on the neck, The black knob I sawed off a tiny piece of ebony, and I took a chisel and rounded the portion that was inserted into a hole in the drawer face. The knob is far from being round, but I love it because it's faceted by my chisel and has flats all over it showing that it was truly done by hand. I wish I had a nice close up of the knob. The tiny drawer bottom is even raised a bit. So that's it, it was fun, and it's classy looking I think. I'll do more for sure.
  12. See Part 2 of this build and completed project. Yesterday I was wrapping up some work for a customer, and I had sometime in between waiting for the paint to dry so I thought, man I'd sure love to do something fun right now. And I have always wanted to build one of the Colonial Wall Boxes we have here on our site at the Downloads department. So I came in and printed out the plan, took it out to the shop and commenced to ripping down a 10/4 chunk of cherry to build the box. First photo is my block of Cherry that I cross cut off 18" from a 10 foot length of it I had laying around, you can see our colonial box plan to the right of it. Then it took me about an hour to get the pieces roughed out of that 10/4 Cherry, I had to re-saw it on the TS, take one pass then flip it and another pass. But we got the parts roughed out, or some of the parts, we still need the base and the drawer parts, but the body of it is roughed out pretty good. Then a dry fit to make sure it resembles the image in the plan. I band-sawed the back and sides out about 1/16th up to the layout line, and I used a rasp to fair the curves and bring the shape into the pencil lines. I still have a couple hours to go on this lil project, but it is fun! These are very cool looking. Once together I'll be smoothing the edges, sculpting the outline and beveling, to give it some character and to get away from the boxy look it has now.
  13. Just to put what I had so far on the Cherry Blanket chest in one post. The Picture below is the sytle I am building this chest like. The sides and ends of this chest will have the boards vertical instead of horizontal. In order to keep them as flat as possible and not have so much sanding to to at the end I have been putting them together in sections. First I laid them out on the table after they were cut and run across the jointer and and through the planer to get close to finish size. This let me look at the grain and try to match it so it looks like a seamless piece as much as possible. Then I biscuit jointed each of the sections. I put two boards together at a time, but first I ran them through the table saw with the glue edge blade to get a good square edge. The photo above shows the gaps before run through the table saw. Now they are glued into to two board sections. Then the two board sections were flattened in the planer and then two of the two board sections were glued. So now I only had to smooth out this joint but from here on it is done with the belt sander since they are too wide to run through the planer. There are nine pieces to make up the sides panels so I had to glue three in one of the sections. So then I put the sections together to check and see before the final two pieces got put together. So it was cut biscuit joints here and put them into the 50" Bessey Clamps. And let me just tell you I really like the Bessey Clamps for gluing these type of panels. They are expensive, but do a great job. So both the front and back panels glued and standing on my work bench in the 50" clamps. And here they are with the two end pieces standing in front of them. So I will start working on the skirt for the bottom and the trim around the top and I got in my stain samples so I will take some extra boards I cut out and get me color matches done. This has taken a good bit more time putting these panels together but I am liking the end results. Well I will post some more on it later. Let me know what you think.
  14. Put these stairs in about 2 months ago, the painter finally got them stained and varnished, we put the ballusters in this week. Did the stairs and all the balcony rail, foundation was dug 2 years ago, will be about 6 more months before the basement gets drywalled, and then we can put the 2 basement stairs in. The basket ball court is above the 6 car garage!
  15. Have a current order for honey dippers, this is the first batch of 20 finished. Some of the these have some really nice grain in the lids. Steve
  16. Hi All! I figgered instead of piggy-backing on my raised door thread I would start a new one for the Crosses. I have MLK Day off, so it’s a 3 day weekend. With the impending swirling vortex of doom forecast for tomorrow I got all my honey do list items done today. So when I did finally get down to the shop today, I had to clean and organize it. It was a mess LOLOL. I had started installing/assembling the Incra Miter Sled I bought with the Shopsmith, I finished that today, and had to figure out how to store it. I made some brackets that went on the inside of cabinet doors. Course I got too rambunctious with the impact driver and put a screw through the door , and I had to remove the two shelves and cut them back an inch so the miter sled would fit. Of course being the smart guy I am, thinking a step or two ahead, I took the inch off on the side that had the finished edge on it now leaving me with 4 bare wood (or substitute) edges. I also had bought a True Trac system when I bought the SS. The tracks had been being stored on top of some of the cabinets. Drove me crazy, didn’t like them up there, needed a ladder/stool to get to them, was keeping me up nights LOL. So I figured out that there was a 4 inch spec under the cabinets. The doors extended down 4 inches from the inside of the cabinet. I put up a shelf that would hold the trac system, and give me easy-peasy access. On my next shop day for the shop, I have an ibox to unbox and set-up, a hingecrafter to unbox and look at, and an Incra LS-TS fence positioned to unbox/set-up, figure out, and find a place to store it. Tomorrow all Crosses all day, until they’re cut/glued/assembled or I run out of day (plus the requisite snow removal as needed). On a serious note, I hope everyone stays safe during this storm.

    A wonderful project, I highly recommend anyone to build these chairs, suitable for most skill levels. The weaving in this seat was considerably more challenging than the square stools I weaved. The trapezoidal shape of the seat created some interesting challenges, but I got through them.

    Two front legs turned and ready for the rung holes. I turned these legs with my Easy Wood tools, a rougher and a finisher and my Laguna Lathe.
  19. Well for several weeks I have posted some pictures of this chest and I am happy to report to you that it is finished. Just a recap. Started with a visit to the Wood Stash and hand picked some of the best looking Cherry Boards from the stack. Cut them to size, ran them across the jointer and then through the planner. I then took the cherry boards and edge glued them together to make the panels for the front, back and both ends of the chest. Then I put two of these panels together to make a four board panel. Then I put the two four board panels together to make one large panel. Actually one of the panels had five boards.. Using my 50" Bessey clamps to hold the two panels together. So I had two long panels for the front and back and two short panels for the ends. Then I started working on a sample for the trim or molding to go around the top and bottom. After a few adjustments to the bits, I settled on the way I wanted to make the trim and started routing the pieces. First a couple of passes with the curved bit in the router and the with the round top bit and then a 1/2" round over bit. So I sanded the trim and then started on the feet for the chest. They are double boards so the chest actually sits on one board and the trim sits on the other board. There are blocks behind the feet to attach them to the plywood bottom. So everything is now trimmed up, miters cut and ready to put together. Now it is time to move it to the spray booth and put the water based dye on. I purchased an Antique Cherry dye and I really love the look it gave the chest. I sprayed it on and then took a damp paper towel and smoothed out the finish. If you get a bit much in a spot it is okay, you still have time to smooth it out. I put two coats on and then sprayed on five coats of General Finishes Enduro Var. It was them rubbed out with 0000 steel wool and Johnson's paste wax.. So there you have the Cherry Blanket Chest from start to finish.
  20. Another retirement gift for one of our Land Surveyors. Boy they are retiring quickly, much of the old guard had been leaving us, and more to come. The letters are routed with a template I made, then I simply paint the entire surface with several coats with rattle can, then let dry, and plane to expose the nice crisp lettering. This post is Cherry, with Ebony tapered plugs as the period punctuation. Just came off the planer, now final sanding and final touches. The base is clamped and glued too. So the question begs, who's making my retirement post!

    rustic cherry door
  22. Back at the end of April of this year, went to an estate Auction. Won a bundle of saws.....one was a bit strange looking... Finally got around to rehabbing it a bit.....Filed the teeth as rip. Got a couple pieces of Cherry to make a blank for a handle.. Metal frame was wire wheeled until it was shiny. Red handle holds the file I used to sharpen the blade. let this mess sit over night Clamps were removed, sander set up. Shaped to fit my hands. . Drilled a couple holes, and installed a pair of saw bolts. Steel frame, merits steel bolts, right Operator needs trained on a proper grip.... It starts easy, cuts fast, and IF I hold it just right, straight cuts occur, like magic. Shellac and the brush was still upstairs (yes, I am now cleared for stairs) so I took this up and added a Amber Shellac finish. IF the sun should happen to reappear, I can let the Cherry soak up some rays, and get a "tan". Might be a decent enough, little Tool Box Saw....it is not a "perfection" saw.... That's ok, I already have one....by Atkins.
