    Building furniture and other odds and ends
  1. Being unemployed this year things were a little slim but had a lot of family over including daughter from Alabama and I got a Kreg pocket hole jig. I would have been happy with just the family.
  2. Simply amazing what some people can get out of a block of wood. Great pics.
  3. Glad to hear from everyone I'm in Fort Wayne. And John, I consider I'm still learning so I don't have much advice to pass on. I just regret I didn't get to learn some of my grandfathers tricks and techniques.
  4. I've been lurking for a bit and even had a question answered for me so I figured it was time for me to introduce myself. Both of my grandfathers were loggers or had their own sawmill and one of them was also a cabinet maker so I think it's safe to say I have sawdust in my blood. Have been building furniture in my garage for 25 years on and off. Glad there are willing people out there to answer questions. Marvin
  5. That's exactly what I was looking for, thank you very much. It looks a lot better now. I might even post some pics when I get it built.
  6. How do you draw a tapered chamfer in sketchup? I have drawn in the lines on the center parts of this door but don't know how to make them chamfered. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
  7. I do have to say that I learned a lot from Norm is years gone by.
  8. Both look great. In spite of what people say, it's the finished product that counts.
  9. Hand planing or by machine, just be careful to watch the grain pattern. Cherry chips real easy.
  10. Cherry color has a tendency to even out over time as the wood darkens.
  11. You might also check if someone in your area does have a woodmizer mill, ask if he would saw it for some of the lumber. My brother does that with his.
