Popular Woodworking magazine put up my new post: The Complete Guide to Building the Blacker Entry Mirror today. Here’s a link to the post. The guide is a 54-page version of my article that appeared in the June 2018 print issue. If you’re going to build a Blacker Mirror, this new free Ebook version will really help. You can download it and the extras from Popular Woodworking, or if you just can’t wait just click here. Let me know if you build one and send me a pic.
I confess. I sometimes have a problem with self-induced volunteerism. Throughout my adult life, I’ve been consumed many times by a project, cause or group in need of something I could contribute. One of my latest adventures was to design and build 9 workbenches for a community woodworking group. Good folks. Happy to help. But, like a lot of things, I’ve taken it way over the top.
So, besides a new bench design each one got their own unique vise chop. Designed in Rhino3D, programmed in RhinoCAM and machined on my CNCs. I’ve been writing about this project over several blog posts at Popular Woodworking’s online site. Here’s a link if you missed it. And, here’s a link to photos of the vise chops.
