  1. Cedar Gate with Arc Top

    This is a gate made of clear grade western red cedar. It is a first for me as it was my first non-friend/relative client. It was quite a learning and growing experience for me. If only it were as simple as woodworking. The Gate went together beautifully, all M&T joints on the frame and T&G on...
  2. Long Radius Template Jig

    THIS project is making a router jig and and using it to make a template for both a 15 foot and 28 foot radius. The template will be used to sand curved braces for guitars or ukes, and eventually to make radius dishes. The following is confusing, so I will make every effort to answer...
  3. Circle Template

    I find that I draw a lot of circles and arcs in the shop. Every time I need a circle, I scurry around looking for the can or jar or bottle or washer or something that is just the right diameter. Usually, I settle for something close that, if I angle my pencil just right, will allow me to...
  4. Radius Dish - 28 Feet

    Finished first radius dish. Used the radius template from the last project to make the 28 foot radius guide rails for the router sled. 3/4" plywood rails were capped with 1/8" plywood to provide a smoother running surface for the sled. The attempt to make a dust collector attachment didn't...
  5. Large Radius Arc Jig

    I'm working on a Bed frame project for my oldest daughter, and wanted to draw a really large arc across the top piece. Normally, I am able to plot out a few points and draw it freehand, but this piece required a 70" long arc that would only take off 1.5" at its highest point, so I knew I needed...
  6. Arc top footstool

    This is my 4th footstool and my style is evolving. I am moving away from the natural edge design and into the arc style. I made an arc style walnut bench earlier. It's just a natural evolution. This one is made from cherry, the top is 2 1/2" thick by 18" wide. It stands 13" high. After...
  7. Bowl

    I will name this one HEARTBREAK so befoer you make a positive comment take a closer look. I thought I would finish turning this bowl even though it had a couple stress cracks from drying. It was a 12 inch diameter so maybe I left a little too much shell. I hated to throw it away so filled the...
  8. Bridge Inspired Coffee Table

    This table was initially inspired by a bridge on the 15 fwy on the way to San Diego Ca. I was consumed to build something with an arc intersecting the table top. I didn't really have a definitive plan beyond that and began to build, redesigning as I went. The table consists mostly of Walnut...
  9. Arc-Fenced Shelf Side Table

    Alright this is my second side table out of the stack of my original designs. I ended up building this one for my best friend that he's putting in his first apartment. Like my other table its an Espresso oil stain made from 1 coat of mourish teak and 2 coats of ebony and finished with a poly...
  10. Arc Leg Box

    Yet another box. This one was built as a proof of concept to test out my idea on cutting the large cove on the lid. It is made of some scrap Mahogany and Poplar. The first thing I did was cut the legs to rough size and then using a jig to hold them in place I used the table saw to cut the...
  11. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have some objects that contain arcs that I would like to duplicate. Let me clarify, it is the arcs, the gentle, sweeping curves, that I would like to duplicate. My problem is that I don't know of a way to determine the radius of the existing arc other than make a tracing then break out a...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hello everyone! I have another question concerning the Western Red Cedar Garden Swing I'm working on. The backrest is crowned with an arc and sunbeam. The sun and rays will be inset 3/16" from the face of the arc like the backrest slats below it. The arc is already attached permanently (not the...

    Design Sketchup Hello jocks and jockettes… it has been awhile since my last project, still I've been keeping busy. This is the first entry in a new series on the Arched Bed. If you've seen the copper patina gates you know where I got the idea, or as my brother said, "you're turning your gate...
