  1. Projects A well earned thank-you

    A little over a week ago I met with a group of retired shipyard workers for a monthly breakfast. One of the group had shared in the past about his once held desire to work with wood. Life’s circumstances had prevented him from doing so unfortunately. Although he had told me that he had an...
  2. Christmas Presents 2 - Wine Bottle Balancers

    I decided to make a few of the popular wine bottle balancers as Christmas gifts. Once I had the dimensions figured out, I realized it would be easy to make a large batch of these at once, so I made 12 total. I started from dimensions I found online, then tweaked it until I was satisfied. The...
  3. Expanding squares

    This board was a bit tricky. The most important step is to make your miter cuts right at 45 degrees. It's an end grain board made with maple cherry and walnut. The pattern gives it a 3-D effect. Enjoy
  4. 3-D Cross

    Forgot to take pictures during the making of this cross. Made this for my daughter's church, which is just now being finished "in the hills" in Tennessee. Back and bottom are 3/4" oak. The 6, 3-D portions of the cross were cut from 1/8" oak plywood in descending order of size of approx 1/4"...
  5. Insulated Barn Style Wood Door

    We wanted to do something special for our dad's birthday so we decided to convert their 10'x20' Tuff Shed pool house into a home office for him. While in the planning phase one of our road blocks was the door. It was an odd size and did not seal. So we decided to re-frame the rough opening and...

  7. Angle Jig for 3D & Other Angles

    After seeing what others had done using three different colors of wood to make 3-D patterns out of wood, I thought I'd try my hand at it. To aid in the process, I made this simple jig for my band saw. Of course, one could vary it a bit for the table saw. I extended the miter slot guide about...
  8. Making 3-D Stars

    I've always had a fascination with 3 dimensional stars. Not being able to find a computer program that would allow me to calculate the angles and cuts that I needed, I wrote my own. I also needed to build a jig that would keep my hands safe and hold down the small pieces to cut at the various...
  9. Diamond Challenge

    It took me roughly two hours to scroll this Douglas fir puzzle. There are 65 pieces that comprise the 2-4 layers. Many cuts are tapered so they may be assembled on from one direction. This means that you can be almost done the puzzle only to find that it won't go together. So you have to...
  10. EOD Badge Plaque

    I haven't posted in a while, been busy in the shop gearing up for summertime Retirement gifts. This is my 3-D representation of our Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) badge. Made from Walnut, Cherry & Maple, finished in the spray booth w/ Lacquer. Added a coin for each of the 4 Military services

    Program for Calculating Dimensions and Angles for 3D Stars Have you ever seen a 3 Dimensional star that you really thought was pretty - perhaps on the side of a barn, in someone's house, or even a Christmas decoration? As a woodworker you may have thought "I'd like to try making one like...
  13. Hand Tools
    This video has been presented before, but indeed you can fabricate any tool you can imagine simply by entering design data, or presenting a tool you wish to be copied in 3-D. Imagine…. You need a table trunnion for your Delta clone bandsaw… no problem! Make it in minutes… Here's the video with...
