Signing my work and making grooves – Bedside table

I used a Paul Seller’s work holding method and a Rockler clamp to hold the board while I plowed the groove.  I was pretty happy with how well it worked.  I clamped the edges of the piece in the clamp and then clamped the clamp in my vise.

  1. Marilyn,

    What do you use to make the signature? Some sort of hammer stamp.

    Looking great. I’m jealous of the shop time. I haven’t been in mine for about a month. Sad!

  2. Marilyn, your project looks great! The plowed groove came out perfect, I always get tearout on the sides from letting the plane tip. More practice. The last time I did it I couldn’t get the plane to take a decent cut at all — and I’d just sharpened it. Then I realized I put the blade back in upside down 🙂
