With each picture I see a progression in complexity and skill level. By the time you get as old as these other old folks you will be every bit as skilled as they are :)

Letting the little ones share your woodworking time turns it into quality time that can't be beat.

Of course it's a challenge sometimes to keep a hammer where you can use it when you have the "help" I have!  :D :D :D

You are truly blessed to get to spend quality time with that pair! They both look like they are having the time of their lives.

plowboyswr,
Your projects are really good. The utility and design are over the top. The finish on that bench is shining all the way down here in Texas. I really like seeing your projects, and the children. They are the future of this country, and will need to learn from the best, so keep teaching them.    :) :) :P :P 8)   Andy

Right on the color wrong on the company.
 

 

The lighter color on the microwave stand is a colonial maple I wasn't too impressed with it. But the red oak made the plywood look good.

Thanks for taking the time!  Your projects look very good to me.  They fit in perfectly on a farm.  I used to farm it and solid, nice looking furniture ruled the roost.  You did good!  As long as momma is happy, everyone is happy, right?

Pine and cherry have a habit of blotching when stained.  Pine is the cheapest most common used for lower cost projects at home.  The trick to staining these woods is to pre-condition the wood with a conditioner like Charles Neil's blotch control. 
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

yeah and now that we are looking at moving she's not looking forward to leaving the cabinets that I've built. Oh well, ya gotta roll with life's punches. And yeah my thoughts are that anything that I build the kids will have to get rid of when I'm gone so it's gotta last. ;D

I thought that it was a felony to stain cherry.

I think it varies by location and might only be a misdemeanor in some places.  :D

Okay, necessity has hit again and I need a little advice from the experts here. I am building a rocker of sorts and need to know how much eh... rise over run in the bow (I think is how I would put it) that a good rocker has. I have gotten to this point in my project and I'm stumped. This will be my first attempt at this and I really don't want to mess this part up. Normally I would consult my Dad but with him being gone... So I'm asking here.  ;)

Don't know if this will help but I just measured the rocker on our front porch.  The rocker bow is 35" long, 2" thick, has 15" from the back leg and has what you're call a rise  of 3" on each rocker tip.  I'd recommend you use a thin strip as a guide to make your bow.  BTW, the front tip is rounded and the back tip has a angular cut to it.  Try it on some scrap wood.  Also, I like your projects and that you included the kids in the action.

31, 1.5, 10.5, 3.5, 1 - That's inches of length, from front leg to end, from back leg to end, ends of the runner from the floor, width of runner.  This is on a very old and simple rocker that will hold and handle me and I'm 6'2" tall and around 290 lbs.  I know, I know.  They're stacking it higher and wider these days.....
