Never-Lost Push Stick

Furnished content.
(from Popularwoodworking.com)


I really got tired of digging around to find my tablesaw's push stick each time I needed it, so I figured out a way to attach it to the fence using a rare-earth magnet. I drilled a 1/2″ counterbore in …Source

Burl/Ambrosia Maple Wall Clock

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Burl/Ambrosia Maple Wall ClockTried out a new 10” by 10” wall clock design. It's a new variation. Short of the L-shaped board that holds the clock face board in place, there is no pine in this clock. It's an Ambrosia maple outer frame atop a stained Ambrosia maple main frame.The center board is two 1.5” Ambrosia maple boards glued together. Tried something new and cut out a burl center piece that the clock movement is inserted through. I also played with paint a bit. The red background behind the burl is a little hard to see, but I also painted the center board red on either side.This design was not the design I started to do when I cut out the clock frame but, man, I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out.Thanks for looking!

Dining Room Cabinet

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Dining Room CabinetI made this addition to previously built dining room furniture for my daughter, to match the buffet prior posted.Wood is maple, color is Weather Wash OAKED wood stain, and the finish is Weather Wash varnish. Both are water based, easy to apply and clean up.As usual, I try to use hand tools as much as possible, as shown in the pictures above: define rabbet shoulder with my home made kerfing saw, then cutting it with a moving fillister plane, and cutting shelf dados via wooden dado plane.Because this is made from solid lumber, I incorporate jointing methods that permit seasonal movement, such as:Corner blocks where cross members are glued into the rabbets, behind the drawer and bottom shelf, which adds strength.A cross brace dovetailed into the sides, along with traditional “buttons” held down by short blocks glued & screwed to the sides;I use the glue blocks for the hold down buttons, glued & screwed in place, for extra strength (should someone lift the cabinet by the top overhang) versus the traditional 1/4” mortise into the sides, and because it is faster than mortising the side members.The two shelves, the bottom of the storage area & the drawer support member, are only glued at the front of the cabinet, and are free to move in the side dadoes, and have a short support block glued & screwed to the sides similar to the short button blocks.Thanks for viewing.
