Krenov-Style Hand Plane




My first shop-made plane. This was a fun project, and resulted in a tool that I will be able to enjoy using. The inspiration to get this done came from my friend Woodguy1975, who was holding a class on making these planes.

Draw Boring Technique




This is a little “mini-tutorial” about the technique of draw-boring. This technique uses dowels to reinforce mortise & tenon joinery. The only difference is, the holes in the tenon are “bored” slightly offset, so the tenon is “drawn” into the mortise as you drive the dowel into place (hence the name).

I used this on the workbench trestle bases that I made for Woodguy1975, and also for my own workbench project.

Turned Mallet




This is from an article in Wood magazine (issue 156). I’ve never done much spindle turning… never had much interest in it, or a good project to use it on. This is probably the first “real” spindle turning project I’ve completed.

Shop cabinets project




These are the cabinets I built for my shop. The plans are from the “Modular Shop Cabinets” article in American Woodworker, January 2005 issue.
