Woodworking Projects, Videos, Tips, and More

Years ago I saw a video that Marc Spagnuolo filmed while he was taking a class the William Ng School of Fine Woodworking in Anaheim, CA.  William was demonstrating how he tuned up a card scraper.  At his bench there was a really fancy “sink” with a bamboo faucet pumping water over a sharpening stone.  I thought that was the best looking sharpening station I ever saw, and at that time it was.  A few years later I saw Guy Dunlap make one on his YouTube channel and he referenced Matthew Morris’ lesson and plans.  Matthew has a great 13 episode series on making a complete station including a shelf to store the pond and t-track to clamp it to the cabinet top so it can’t potentially slip off while in use.  Both Guy’s and Matthew’s videos are great resources and you should check them out if you haven’t already.

If your like me a home owner you quickly realize your weekends are now working weekends. If something isn’t broken you have a honey duelist that both myself and my wife make (mostly me).  But in this case it was the garbage disposal that started to leak at  about 9 at night
