In any given day 50 ideas cross my mind quick as a flash and I make myself a note with each one. The mental ones usually get lost in the milieu of an overactive mind. Where they go from there depends on memory recall. Not all design concepts come to pass beyond the note, sketch…

I’ve never really liked up and over garage doors, mostly because they hang well below the door frame and take off valuable head room where I need it, which is above my workbench. I am always finding myself ducking as I pass through. I don’t know how people above six foot go on. So my…

The Q&As on spokeshaves “Tell me this. Which spokeshave should someone buy and is one spokeshave better than another?” Another, “Should I buy a round-bottomed one for concave work and a flat-bottomed one for convex?” And, “How would I know which way to put the blade in, bevel up or bevel down?” “Is there a…

The Q&A on the spokeshave results from almost a hundred questions you sent in and it’s just up on YouTube now. I’m really hoping that our efforts will answer many of the common and not so common questions you sent in. I hope to that as a result you will never consider this tool an…

I milled my wood on Thursday last week, oak. It’s a new design with a drawer built in, tapered legs and such. It’s something I have made by machine in the past, not something done purely with hand methods so I am looking forward to it. Actually, I doubt anyone has seen this done before.…

A spatula is a first project with shape. It’s an escape from straight lines and the guarantees of the machine so many machinists rely on. Whereas you could jump through the hoops to create jigs or just use a bandsaw for the bulk of the work, the experience you gain from coping cuts, sawing, chopping,…

I recently glued up a plywood workbench using a Titebond PVA and left the glue to dry in the bottom of the tray as this seems to me the best way to remove the glue in a single piece once you have drained off the excess back into the jug. Lifting of the skin from…

I know a man who owns five houses. He thinks he worked hard and as result of that hard work he is now rich. Truth is he just worked a steady and regular forty hour week, never risked anything ever and was fortunate to be born in the right era for prospering, the late 1940s.…

Texas was so lovely. Mesquites gently jostling their frond-like leaves of light green seem innocent at first sight, unique, but hide the spear-point thorns the rancher mostly hates. Moving along serpentine back roads interconnecting on my route from Llano to Fredericksburg via The Willow City Loop was as stunning as ever. Fredericksburg’s Main Street is…

It’s the close of Easter week where I’m just finishing up an Easter break from the UK to spend time with family in my second-home state of Texas. It’s been a good week seeing the tornadic storms come in and then dissipate over 24 hours. I’d been missing the hard rains and the ditches filled…
