Welcome to Woodworker++

This blog is intended to be a journal of my progress as a woodworker. Grab a drink, maybe some popcorn, sit back and enjoy a glimpse into my woodworking projects, both failed and successful. Why should you care what I do, or what I have to say? You shouldn't, but just maybe I can keep you from making the same mistakes that I had to learn the hard way.

Quilt rack...

I bought a new poplar board instead of trying to fix the warp.  Yesterday afternoon I milled up the sides.  This morning I milled up the rails.  I have the rails milled and tenoned.  I ganged the rails and cut the tenons on the table saw.  I also have one side mortised and roughed out on the bandsaw.


I'll have to take a trip out to the base to use the spindle and belt sanders to clean it up.  Once I get the side sanded and finished out I can trace it to the other side and cut that one out.  I did make a mistake when cutting the tenons.  I made a mis-cut when cutting the tenon on the table saw.  Just the width of the saw kerf, on one side of one tenon.  So I glued a little repair on there and will whittle it down somehow.

While waiting on the glue to dry and to just do some dovetail practice I started making a simple walnut pen holder for my desk at work.  Here's 2 sides dovetailed.  The other two sides will be pins only.
