Template Copier

Monday, October 13th, 2014

The idea for this mortiser add-on has been running through my head for a few weeks now. I wasn’t sure how well it would work and I couldn’t resist trying out the idea any longer.

The templates are secured by the two bolts pictured above.  An aluminum stylus rides against the template as the mortiser is moved forward and back.  So far I am pleased with the results and I can see several practical uses for this add-on.  The add-on will not get in the way when I need to use it for a standard mortiser.  Yippeee!

A Birdhouse from Cedar

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

My wife gave me the idea of making a birdhouse several days ago. After looking for inspiration online, I settled on a design and started thinking about how I wanted to present the build on video. Originally, I was going to use a more realistic looking bird, but I felt that a cartoon’ish looking bird would be funnier. I hope you enjoy watching. Want the Sketchup file? Here it is.
