Mark Chryst How-To woodworking projects & videos with lumber grown & harvested on the family farm. 👇 🎥 Spline & Bevel Jig for Table Saw 🎥 👇

I’ve been trying out a new poly for my kitchen project and so far I’m pretty impressed. Fast drying and easy to brush on. Once I start making doors, I’m going to see how it does through a sprayer.

I’d call that square!
Test the fence on the new @powermatic.woodworking 60HH jointer ☑️ #newtool #shopupgrade #precisionequipment @woodpeckers_tools

This thing is a beast! First pass over the new jointer and I made it a deep one. It hacked through that walnut like it was nothing and left an amazing finish.
I didn’t have the dust collection hooked up for lack of an adapter, so the dust found its way out of every nook and cranny it could find. I expect things will stay a lot neater when I hook up DC.

I would say that fence is square! No adjustment needed straight out of the crate.

I called in the big guns to lift my new jointer into place. Then the big guns brought a hoist with him and made the ordeal almost too easy. No pulled muscles or hurt backs. There wasn’t even any manly grunting to speak of.

I’m finally getting around to adding a smattering of stickers to my sticker door. Most of these are from @workbenchconference, but a few have been showing up in the mail too. Thanks to everybody that gave me one!

I’ve been working on updating an old project and stumbled on this clip of my little helper giving me a hand in testing out the weight capacity of some drawer slides.
If it’s in the budget, I highly recommend you get yourself a little helper!

New over the stove microwave and new oak cabinet with slide-out spice rack is installed and ready to go. The rest of the kitchen is in the works soon. New face frames, new doors and new counters are all coming up.

I needed a jig to help me bevel some drawer faces, then made it pull double duty by adding a spline jig to the opposite side. Link to the full video on YouTube in my bio.

I’ve never been a #handtool guy, but I’m learning!
Turns out there’s very little more satisfying than watching a card scraper with a good edge pull ribbons off a piece of wood.

I’m getting to be a pretty big fan of #throwbackthursday because it forces me to go look for something that I haven’t seen in a long time. Today I stumbled into this quick-cut of the biggest picture frame I’ve made to date.
This frame and the beautiful picture in it hang next to the door to our house, so I get to stop and look at it every time I go outside.

@brudaddy and @fishersshop and I recorded an episode of #webuiltathing at the hotel during #workbenchcon2019. It was the first time all 3 of us recorded the podcast from the same time zone, let alone the same room! We had a good size audience watching us make fools of ourselves too. It was great!

Check it out on your favorite podcast app, look for episode 16!
