Easter Egg Hunt Open

Saturday, April 19th, 2014



The Easter Egg Hunt is open!   Get your basket and have fun.  I painstakingly hid Easter eggs all over my website (excluding the forum and Blog).

When you find an egg, click on it, and then keep looking until you’ve found all five.   If you find all five of the eggs you will be prompted to enter your name and e-mail address. The first person to find all of the eggs, and submits their contact info in time, wins.

Some of the eggs are easy to find and a few might take you a while.  Have fun!

The winner gets a T-shirt of their choosing from my cafepress store OR one of my plans from my website.  If you are outside of the USA, I can only offer one of the plans as a prize.



Design Change (Organizer)

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

I made a design modification by moving the shelf up.  The original design had the shelf going into a dado all the way around the inside.  After more thought, It became apparent that the glue up was going to be complicated because of this.  Moving the shelf up will make the construction much easier and doesn’t take away from the look of the piece.

The right side of the shelf is now sticking above the right side which is angled.  I haven’t decided yet if I’m happy with this or not.  I might make the sides have a stepped profile instead.  What do you think?


Drawer Rail and a Mistake (Desk Organizer)

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Not a good day for me in the shop. I was laying out my mortises for the front drawer rail and forgot that they are not symmetrical on each side. One side is suppose to get a continuous mortise, and the other side where the drawer is, gets two smaller length mortises.  After a moment of disbelief, I patched the mortise and moved on.  The mistake will be partly inside and covered by the drawer. The only way you’d ever see it is if you completely removed the drawer (or if I tell you). Oops.
