  3. Coasters

    These coasters were made for my brother for his 60th birthday. The wood is kwila. The lathe made it easy to turn the corners down & create the rings. The table saw and linisher were used to shape & thickness them using a sled for the safety aspect. Finished with 6 coats of wipe on poly & buffed...

    This is the matching Bedframe that goes with my son's bedroom furniture in his first apartment. I posted the nightstand and dresser here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/145322 The frame is solid cherry from some beautiful figured boards I found. The headboard is cherry with veneered panels...
  5. Freecycled Kids Easel

    This one goes under the honey-do projects list. My wife picked up a kids easel off freecycle.org year ago. The previous owner had broken both plastic trays and wanted to get rid of it. She figured I could easily make replacement trays for the easel. Fast forward 1 year, and having moved...
  6. Picture frame and jigs

    I made a set of eight picture frames for a friend of mine. He had some family treasures a relative had brought over from Okinawa. They were framed in some hand made beautiful frames, but they wanted to redecorate and needed a new color scheme. Long and skinny about 5" x 18" he would have needed...
  7. Site Help and Suggestions
    Hello, I am brand new here so I have not had time to sift through all the forum entries. I recently purchase a Stanley 45, and was wondering if there was a good way of sprucing up the nickel plating? I tried steel wool, which got off the .5 percent of rust that was on it. It has about 85...

  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am finally getting around to evaluating a Model 45 (4 pulley) lathe I bought and disassembled to get out of the sellers basement. It ran OK in his basement- the journey up the stairs required me to take it apart. I have now put it back together which required me to remount the 3/4 HP Dayton...

    The Sketchup Plans Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to...

    Designing and materials We finished building our house in 2008, but there are all those little projects that you have to set yourself to get done or it will never happen. In addition to getting side tracked, the shop (garage) or what ever you call it, starts to fill as storage. The amount of...

    First Estate Sale attempt So, I have just recently gotten into woodworking and have developed an infatuation with hand planes and other old tools. The past few months I have been going to some garage sales here and there to try and find some old tools. I was referred to a website that lists...

    Mitered Dovetails Anyone? Every project's layout phase, for me, is like spring training - what happened last season is a foundation to build upon; all things are possible when starting fresh. And it's also an opportunity to set goals that, upon further review, seem almost unattainable. I find...

    Stanley No. 45 Boxes Reproduction Graphics I bought a No. 45, but the cutters did not come with the boxes that were included at the original purchase, all those decades ago. Not wanting to spend a large amount of money for real boxes, I've opted to make my own reproductions. However, I wanted...

I contemplating buying them but after going to pottery barn kids and seeing pine bunk beds for $1,400 I talked the ol' lady into letting me make them. I mean...

    Introduction First off, I'd be remiss if I didn't thank fellow LumberJock Dave Polaschek for inviting me to his shop making this direct comparison possible for us. I do not own the Veritas plane, so I wouldn't have been able to compare them without his generosity letting me play with his new...

    A new pretty :-) Recently I decided it would be beneficial to have a rabbet plane in the shop. I don't generally buy tools unless I know they'll get used. I've had several times recently I've had to set up the router table or a dado stack in the table saw to cut a single rabbet and thought...
