Just watched a video using what he calls Green and Green style which uses screws hidden with plugs.. Interesting stuff..
It's basically box joints with an Asian twist which I like by the way.. I might just make a jewelry box for my granddaughter with the style and lock in place with pegs instead of screws..
I love a more old style construction especially for furniture.

Is anything more disappointing than a nice looking piece of furniture that upon closer inspection is particle board and pocket screws?
To be honest there probably is like nuclear war, but crappy furniture is right up there with nuclear war..

I have scars across three fingers to attest to that being a bad idea.

It's an old Wattaburger mug, about 50 years old..all glass. I like it..I try to avoid washing it. Coffee mugs shouldn't be washed unless something really nasty lands in it..

So I've gotten pretty good at cutting slices of cow bone I once had a plan to use it for, but that didn't work out so now I have a small collection of bone slices I need to find a use for. Just put it in a vise and cut with a hand saw..  Thinking about a line of jewelry called Bad to the bone...

If you're thinking of buying a dremel roto tool for $100 save your money and go to Harbor Freight and spend $30 for one of these handy doohickies.. It has more power and has a variable speed control  plus a nice 3" grinding wheel..

It fits any 1/8 inch shaft and if I'm not mistaken you can probably use other chucks with it though I haven't tried yet..

Why not use a drill motor that you've clamped down?

That'll work too.. For 30 bucks though it's nice to have the grinder.. Harbor freight also has a hanging flex shaft machine that's actually rated very well even though most of their stuff is crap..

Made a snazzy tenon jig just because I'm kind of lazy when it comes to getting tenons square..
It ain't pretty, but it works..

Joinery isn't great as the wood was badly cupped and twisted, but it gives me somewhere to put mail besides all over the dining room table..
To bad it's so badly cupped because it's a nice looking bit of western cedar.. Maybe some time with the plane someday and I can make 3/4 inch into some half decent 1/2 inch..
Western cedar is like working with balsa wood it's so soft,but nice looking grain..

Well you got me beat. Just 6 stitches in my left thumb and cut a slot in my right index finger.
