    RWW 202 Artisanal Flyswatter

    RWW 202 Artisanal Flyswatter

    Yep you read it right.  I needed a flyswatter at the lumber yard so I went the typical woodworker route and split out some Hickory then shaved it for the perfect thing and flexible handle then cross laminated Maple, Oak, and Walnut veneers then finally created a fretwork rose pattern on the face.  Y'know like you do.

    RWW 201 Barron Dovetail Guides

    RWW 201 Barron Dovetail Guides

    If you have followed any of my blogs or podcasts for long you will know of my aversion to jigs and guides of any sort.  But I wanted to be fair in my assessment and make sure that I put in some time with these dovetail guides by David Barron before jumping to a conclusion.  I hope you will gain some insight from this review and find it to be a fair and balanced review.

    RWW 199 Pencil Boxes

    RWW 199 Pencil Boxes

    These simple to make pencil boxes are great to use up some scrap wood and use simple half lap joinery and a sliding lid.  I add a few other things to spice them up but mostly they should be simple and unadorned to match the aesthetic.
