    Hey everyone,

    Is their a list of upcoming projects I’m not aware of?  I see pics of a small storage box whic is probabaly next.  I know we will eventually get  to the rocking chair (can’t wait) :).  I see on a thread that a coffee table might be before the rocking chair.  Looking forward to learning and can’t wait till UPS brings my new plow plane.

    Thanks

    Hey Rodney. I haven’t seen one yet, but would like to know as well. Perhaps we could also get a list of how much and what thickness wood we’ll be using so I can make the 60 mile round trip to my wood supplier ahead of time? I’m guessing the box project is next, but I’m not sure if it’s 3/4″ or 1/2″ stock?

    Hey guys,

    Yes the next project(s) are a series on making small dovetail boxes with quite a few variations on a theme. We will start with very simple and then show some different, more advanced, ways of adding sliding and fitted lids and single dovetails and dovetails that accommodate those two lids. The wood requirements will be quite small. You will need only a few square feet of just about any hardwood or softwood 1/2″ thick and then some thinner 3/8″ (or thereabout) of the same or similar wood.

    I will get you a full cutting list soon.

    Have a great Christmas!

    Hi Joseph

    After looking at some of the things the guys are carving is there any chance Paul could include a carving project some time in the future

    Happy Christmas and Best Wishes to all

    Thanks a lot Joseph. That saved me a trip across town to the lumberyard during the work week.

    Merry Christmas.

    Any word on the cutlist, Joseph? I’m keen to get the wood milled before going back to work!

    Anyone in the UK know where I can get 1/2 inch timber? I can only get 3/4 inch at the local yards and thicknessing it by hand seems really wasteful. Wish I had a bandsaw for resawing 2×6!

    George.

    George,

    I have the same problem. B&Q have some but It’s only(32mm x 12mm) 🙁

    My local timber merchant will plane it down, but it really bumps the price up. As you said I think a band saw is the way to go.

    Tongue and Groove Cladding at 1/2″ x 5″ then plane the tung and groove off might be another option for now.

    Just rip the boards in half, after planing they will be near 3/8 inch which pretty close.   Maybe Paul will show us how to resaw boards in half In the upcoming videos.

    After reading that small dovetailed boxes were the next project, I thought I’d have bash at making one.  I did try and resaw a piece of pine board, which I did with a ripsaw (5tpi) and then, after smoothing, finally ended up with a piece about 1/4″ thick.  I started using it but it did not come out as precise as I’d liked, so I used some material I already had which was about 3/8″ or so after planing and made another box – which became a very late Xmas present!

    Attached is a pic.  Now to learn how to do this properly 🙂  I think I’ve managed to hide most of the mistakes I’d made…

    Happy New Year, everyone!
