  1. African Cherry and "Gold"

    African Cherry and "Gold" Box. This was a fun experiment….I had occasion to visit a local picture framer, and in talking about my woodworking, he asked if I would have any use for random cutoffs of framing materials. I, of course, was interested and got a whole arm load of unusual pieces. For...

  3. Adire 281 and LCC Speakers

    I built these in 2005. They are Adire 281 towers and LCC (Large Center Channel). Unfortunately, Adire isn't around anymore. They put out a great design and kit built around their 8" woofers and I couldn't be happier with the sound. The boxes are MDF veneered with paperbacked quartersawn Makore...

  7. Nautical Napkin Holder

    Nautical Napkin Holder - A boating friend asked if I could come up with a holder that would keep the napkins from flying around in the wind while he is boating. I wanted something simple, but with a "nautical" stamp on it. The hold-down arm features a carved maple anchor and is heavy enough to...
  8. Dresser trays

    Dresser Trays...Three fun little lathe projects for gift giving, ideal for keys, change, wallet, etc. I see the round one as being a bit more feminine, but….... The lower and left trays are made of bloodwood, and the upper right one, from African cherry....accent stripes are maple. I learned...
  9. Hickory /African Cherry Box

    I wanted to make a little box that had a mechanical-looking lift. The lift actually does nothing but stop the pin-hinged lid from rotating into the box, but I think it is a good look. The box is Hickory and African Cherry and is about 5.5×3.25 inches and finished in spray poly; and the bottom...
  10. Sleigh Cradle

    The Journey Begins: The future grandchild, I have been informed, must have for all of five months a sleigh cradle to reside in. Since I have a long lead time of nine months the process begins with locating a sleigh cradle picture, and I found one. I start all my projects with the least...

    I did a quick search and didn't see anything so I'll ask here. When you have a flat project ie. cutting board, tray, lazy susan, etc., how much attention do you pay to the bottoms? For a long while I was making the bottoms look almost as good as the tops. Plane then sand to 180. Now I'm having...

I was fooling around making some practice cutting boards but can't quite get the joints EXACTLY dead on. there is always a gap...

    I've got a Stanley #5 that a friend gave to me. I've been woodworking for many years but am just starting to explore hand tools. I want to get this Stanley into good shape and I know that one of the main tasks is lapping the base. I've been working on that and noticed a bit of a low spot (a bit...

    I've been getting more into using hand planes and decided to try jointing some rectangular mahogany stock I'm using to make some picture frames. The pieces are about 29" in length. All the pieces had twisted and warped when they were sliced out and I lack a jointer so I tried the stanley no.5...
  15. Hand Tools
    I know virtually nothing about hand planes. Has anyone found a good tutorial for a beginner? Something beyond what the parts are - like how to set the depth of the iron, different planes for uses, irons what are flat vs curved and why you would use one or the other, grain direction concerns...
  16. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    hi there fellow wood workers I am trying to figure out what it is that I can do with all of my saw dust. Generally most of the saw dust and shavings that I produce is western red cedar. There is a fair amount of doug fir and some mahogany dust in there as well. I am wondering if anyone has...
