New Tool SNAFU

Well, my new DadoMax jig did show up on Monday, but I'm nearly through a 2 week long preparation for my next cancer treatment and my energy is low. I did look at the stuff on Monday and thought: "Hey, there really ought to be some instructions in here..."



It was too late to call Woodline, so I had to wait till Tuesday morning. On Tuesday, I called and talked to Wayne Suttor (Now I think I'm spelling it right) and he immediately knew I was calling looking for instructions (that he… Continue

Another New Tool

Recently I saw a video shot by Woodworker's Journal at the 2009 AWFS Fair showing Wayne Suitor (I'm probably spelling his name wrong) from Woodline USA giving a sneak peak at their new DadoMax Router Jig.



Here it is:





Well, the DadoMax was not yet… Continue

Drawer Front and Flat Wood

Last Thursday I cut my drawer fronts all to Length (25 3/8") and drilled pocket holes in 8 of the pieces in preparation for putting 16 of the pieces togehter in pairs to make 8 panels I could cut to size for the bottom 8 drawers (my stock is wide enough for the top drawers).



Last night (Tuesday) I went in to glue up the panels and found that over the long weekend the pieces I had cut had all cupped, so none of them were flat. Luckly, I now have a 10" Jointer / Planer and I spend the… Continue

I love a new Tool (even if it's not made by Kreg).

About the only thing missing from my shop was a thickness planer and decent jointer. I saw a video review of the RIKON 12" Combo Jointer / Planer and thought it would be a great idea for my shop (and its rapidly vanishing floor space) to get a combo set-up. That way I would get rid of the old (nearly broken) 4" jointer I have and replace it with a combo.



Now the RIKON is supposed to be about $1600.00 and that was a lot of money for me drop on any tool (combination or not). I did some… Continue

Hope Chest

Remember a while back when I made that Treasure Box for my roommate's daughter? That was a precursor for a hope chest I wanted to build for friends of mine getting married on Labor Day weekend. Well, that day is almost here. This Friday, in fact. I'm almost done with my project, but here's how it all started.



My brother Dan used to build these things as toy boxes for our nieces when they were turning one year old. Dan used a dovetail joiner to make his sides and lid frame. While I… Continue
