Better Shop-made Dowels

Furnished content.
(from Popularwoodworking.com)


I have to admit that I'm not very fond of dowel joinery. I've repaired too many old dowel joints over the years to trust them. Part of the problem is that a dowel hole in face grain offers only about …Source

Generic owl

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Generic owlA generic owl, loosely based on the colouring of a barn owl.
Carved from Meranti and painted with Jo Sonjas, coated with satin (would of preferred matt) water based varnish to stop any yellowing of the paint.Decided to try and do a more carved look with the feathers being noticeably carved. I thought that it would lessen the painting time, which it did.
It wasn't hard but took a lot of thinking that I didn't have at the time.
This project took far longer than anticipated as I had a major flare up and was out of action for a number if weeks. Thankfully it's off to its new home being well received.Generic owl

Wooden Block Sets for my Kids Preschool

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Wooden Block Sets for my Kids Preschool I made these basic 5 Piece wood blocks sets (4 rectangles and 1 square) out of A leftover board of tiger maple. They fit perfectly in a sandwich bag, and I am working on a printout to put in it.My wife thinks it would be tacky to say they can contact me to get custum wood toys, and direct them to my online shop. I was planning on putting in a set of those cheap crayons, and mainly use the (pitch book) to have a few little patterns, and other color the building blocks with your kids kinda things.I make everything out of hardwoods that are sustainable, I was thinking to highlight that. I make a lot of toys and would like to break into selling them.

Hot Rod

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Hot RodA 1934 Ford chop-top coupe, sort of. This project went well until it didn't. For one, I learned that my 1/4” forstner bit makes a bigger hole than my 1/4” drill bit (both employed on a drill press). The forstner bit did something I've ever seen before – it pushed a segment of grain out of place (see photo of the front end). Didn't pay attention and used a segment of 2×4 that has a runny sap deposit in it. May have to apply aerosol shellac and just keep this one as a demo. Mostly pine of course, with walnut wheels and oak axles.
