  1. Tea Boxes

    When I first got into woodworking (that is, when my wife talked me into trying it 6 years ago). I asked her what I can make her. She said that tea boxes to organize her tea would be nice. So on 12/26/2015, I decided I should finally get to making her the tea boxes as the 2015 Christmas present...
  2. Night Stands

    I built these two night stands for my brother as a wedding gift. He is getting married Labor Day weekend and I still have to finish two dressers by then. These are made from ambrosia maple stained with GF water based stain (rosewood.) Top coat is Arm-R-Seal satin. All mortise and tenon joints...
  3. Shaker Tables experiment

    My daughter asked me to build her a small table to fit in her dorm room and to make it "simple" but "nice." "Now that's a charge!" I thought, and got to work on a Shaker table. The "simple" part was easy, but the "nice" part was a problem. What makes one Shaker table nicer than another? Why...
  4. Ambrosia and Walnut Clock

    A little clock I made for one of the kids. Just an initial test to see how posting project pictures works.
  5. Natural Edge Center Piece

    Little side project I just finished. Created a nice little center piece that holds little succulent plants with a piece of ambrosia maple. Still need to find 3 more succulents to fill out the other glasses. I may mount it to the wall in the future as a little shelf for holding plants.

  7. Hollow "Faux-rm"

    This is close as I can get to a hollow form with my current tools so I am calling it a "Faux-rm". I found some 1"x4" flat bottomed test tubes at a surplus store so I created this bud vase with a hole to accept the tube.
  8. These toys are the tops

    My kids were beta-testing these presents for their cousins when they informed me that Santa has a lathe. How have a lived 38 years on this planet without knowing that? :-) Left to right that are cherry, cherry, oak, maple, ash and maple. All but the cherry was from trees in the neighborhood...
  9. Ambrosia and Walnut Box

    A little (6"x6") box to hold some Christmas goodies we are shipping to one of our daughters and her hubby. He is in the Navy, which makes it difficult to send larger presents, so I made this to fill with chocolate and gift cards and send their way. The box is made with an Ambrosia lid and a...
  10. Ambrosia Maple Pedestal Table

    My wife asked me to build her a new dinning room table that was only 36" wide, she wanted it oval. The finished table is 36" x 45" with two 12" leaves. The pedestal is made from 12/4 soft maple. The top and leaves are made from 4/4 Ambrosia Maple. I chose boards that were very lite with...
  11. Awl This Could Have Been Yours...

    ...If you had participated in the Summer 2016 Tool Swap. These were the marking tools that I made for the 2016 Marking and Layout tool swap. Both the awl and the Japanese marking knife and handle were inspired by articles from the now defunct Shopnotes magazine. Instead of buying a Japanese...

    Hello fellow LJ's! I need your input, ideas, suggestions on how I would go about fixing this little debacle I'm in…I'm currently creating a Flip-top cart where the bottom cavity you see in the photo will be for a drawer. Well, when I clamped everything up, it was square, but when I came back...
  13. Finishing
    I am making a Nakashima style coffee table with my dad over Thanksgiving. I don't think we've done a project like this for 15 years… :( I am debating between a slab of claro burled walnut or a piece of ambrosia maple. I have a set of four brushed brass hairpin legs, but can't decide on the best...

  15. Wood & Lumber
    I'm trying to get a little further out of my skill set lately and I would love to do some fine work with exotic species. I've been to Crosscut and Compton in Seattle. Both places are great but they either don't have what I need, or maybe it's just not there when I'm looking. I'm currently...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a Delta 12" bench top drill press. My chuck has started to become difficult to tighten up. I've opened it up as far as it will go and have used compressed air to blow out any crud that may have been there, that didn't help any. I've sprayed it with some dry lube - that didn't help. It...

    Wood Gloat of the day Last thursday I stopped by the local Sawmill. I wasn't looking for anything, just a social visit. I think that he's running into finincial problems. The reason I say that is the lack of logs in the lot and the lack of piles of sawn wood in the yard. He is not usually at...
