Restoring an Antique Window Transom (#015) w/ Lil Jimmy Diresta: I picked up this antique (1900) window transom in Arkansas a couple years ago. The transom is from England. It sat in my shop for the past two years and I finally got a chance to refurbish it. Took all the white (possibly) lead paint off of it then stained in Dark Walnut Danish Oil and some wipe-on Poly. Placed LED lights on the back side and made it a wall hanging.


PUPPETS, SPACE, WOOD ART!!: For perhaps the first time, I combined puppets, space and wood art in one place! A beautiful piece of Bolivian Rosewood was found at my local Rockler. Too nice to cut up, it resembled a galaxy, so I went with that theme and made a piece of wood art.


VLOG 1 – River City Marketplace Craft Fair: My 1st video blog of our day at the River City MarketPlace craft fair (14 May) in Sacramento. Fantastic day to get together with other artists and craftsmen. Always think about buying locally made items – you support an artist and a community. We did pretty well, a great crowd of shoppers.


Making Dice Drink Coasters: A quick and easy weekend project to make some dice drink coasters to protect your surfaces and better enjoy that beverage! Made from red oak and walnut dowels, finished in Rustoleum Natural Danish Oil and MANY coats of spray lacquer.


Using Danish Oil and Lacquer: A quick comparison of using lacquer and danish oil. I am a believer of using danish oil on certain hardwoods like walnut, cherry and curly maple as it brings out the grain something awesome. I still finish off with lacquer, but rarely use lacquer alone. They go nicely together. Have a watch and enjoy. Give us a thumbs up and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE!


Making Plaques for the Coast Guard: Have the honor of making a number of presentation plaques for a friend in the Coast Guard. These are made from solid cherry and finished in natural danish oil and then a few coats of spray lacquer.


You’ve Got Sticker Mail: Sticker swapping is happening around the woodworking world. Better than trading cards!! Thanks to Steve Ramsey of Wood Working for Mere Mortals for the sticker.


7 Seas Coin Display: In honor of the 7 Seas Coin Series by Anchor Up 1893 Coins, I began building these coin displays. They proved popular. This is a bit more than woodworking, but is a unique project.


SHAPEOKO 3 Build and Run: Received my Shapeoko 3 CNC Machine, did the build and a few test runs. Still have a few bugs to work out, but it is up and running. Looking forward to many projects and providing some videos of them. Give a a LIKE, share and have a great day!!


Challenge Coin History and Rack Build: Taking my hobby and my woodworking and putting them together. Some history of the challenge coin and also showing how I build a new display rack.


Maple Walnut Box: I made a couple curly maple and walnut keepsake boxes. They are finished in natural danish oil and spray lacquer. The grain really comes out well with this wood. The fitted lid is done with 45 degree angles which I am really getting into. Enjoy and Thanks for Watching!
