I have a couple of nicer(to make) pieces soon, a knee-hole desk with nine drawers, and a little shelf unit. Anyway here’s a few progress shots of the large sycamore […]

>Timber Store.

>I recently bought a house, and one of the things that got left behind was a 16’x8′ shed/garage. I’ve decided that it will make a good temporary timber store, and if it lasts me a couple of years I will be happy. I was going to buy a shipping container for this purpose, but when […]

>Drawer problem.

>I have a small problem on the ash wardrobes I’m making, both of the robes are being fitted into alcoves, but one of these alcoves is 250mm(10″) smaller than the other.

>Timber selection.

>OK I’ve been machining some European white ash today, and thought I would speak a little bit about how I select timber for doors.   When I look at timber for doors I want it to be straight and flat, with no twist or bow along its length, or cup through its width. I don’t use […]

>Dovetails for real.

>I’ve made a start on the six drawers, these will be hand-cut, or at least my version. First off the stock is cut to size, then marked out to where they are going. I’m using European Ash for all of my drawers for this project. Then I nail the sides together with a small veneer […]

>A Bit More On the Painted Robe.

>Got all the doors shot in and hung today, I used the little L/N 60 1/2 block plane for this, it performed brilliantly as you would expect. I just wish I’d took the plunge years ago. All hung and swinging nicely.                                                                                   There was just time to get all the drawer fronts fitted, before my father […]
