Pulled a couple boards from a stack that's been stickered in a closed shed for 12 years. Mind you, this is AZ where the humidity is near nothing.
Got enough of it rough cut to length, planed to thickness and ripped jointed to width. Several hours of labor.
Laid them out on the assembly bench to arrange the pattern and left them overnight. The next morning, Monday of course, every one of the walnut pieces had bowed. Some by as much as 1/4".
I've tried to use air-dried wood several times here in Mississippi where our relative humidity hovers around 60%. Had bad results every time. I just won't invest my time in anything that hasn't been kiln-dried except for outdoor furniture.

I'm building a couple of flag cases for the families of deceased Veterans. Discovered Ribbon Striped Sapele at my local wood store. Beautiful wood and not too expensive. I'll post some pictures when finished.

Finishing up a screen door for my porch.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I'm making urns for deceased cats, of all things. I've made quite a few urns for deceased Veterans (photo attached), but this is the first time for cats.

They are similar in design, but smaller at only about 5" square. These are mahogany with mitered and splined corners. The top is pocket screwed on, with four screws (one in the center of each side) from the inside. The bottom is attached with 4 screws countersunk (one into each side with two offset to prevent incorrect re-assembly). All of the screws are round head stainless (Kreg doesn't offer #7 pocket screws in stainless). The urn is designed so that the bottom can easily be removed to insert the cremains. They should be suitable for placing on a shelf, or if buried, they should hold together for many years. This is a batch of four.

Two of these urns are planned for immediate use. The other two are speculation, or possibly display samples.

They are in the finishing stages now - 2 coats of Watco Red Mahogany Dainish Oil, followed by 3-5 coats of polyurethane. All surfaces, both inside and out, are being finished. Photos will follow when completed.

I'm also building a few more tool boxes from BB plywood with box jointed corners similar to the one attached.

I am almost finished painting my new garden shed. Bought a kit from the big orange and I regret it. I should have built it from scratch. when that is done, I will be setting up my new shop. I moved mid-June and the garage was packed with all my stuff. So now with the shed built I was able to move much stuff into it. I cleared a space last night to build my lumber rack. I have so much wood now that I bought all that Walnut I shared pictures with you guts a while back. There is much more than I thought so I got a really good deal. Here are a few pics of the shed before painting and of the garage before moving day.

I just finished this chest of drawers to support my drill press. The steel table that came with the drill wasted too much space. I love drawers. They are much more efficient users of space than doors. For the carcass, I used 3/4 Oak ply that was left over from another project. I wouldn't have expected the weight of the drill press to bow the 3/4 top, but it made the top drawer-front drag a little; hence, the aluminum angles to carry the weight to the edges.

Hi, guys.
Right now I am working in two woodworking projects. The first one is a angular cabinet for the stereo sound equipment and the other is a rack for shoes.
From time to time I work on a modification for my homemade milling machine and gathering ideas to increase my chinese lathe´s bed.

We, woodworkers are everywhere!!!
