  1. Beall Storage

    I wanted a place to store my Beall buffing system that keeps the wheels from being contaminated by the other compounds. I had a plastic bin that was not wide enough for the entire mandrel so my husband added wood rings to support the mandrel. One side has a bigger hole for the morse taper which...
  2. Pen Wizard organizer

    A few weeks ago I got the Beall Pen Wizard. And I decided to try to organize one area of my shop just for pen making. And for me that means trying to keep things associated with one task close at hand. For those of you who have not seen the Pen Wizard I suggest that you go to Beall's website...
  3. Another Mitre Sled, Thanks LJ's and WWMM!

    Well, as Steve Marin noted, when people know you start woodworking, they seem to all need a picture frame. I got just that request, and based on the quality of the work I was framing, I didn't think that my CMS would do a good enough job, so here, finally, is my first project to be displayed on...
  4. Cane handles

    At our Christmas craft show a gentleman took my card who was interested in getting a set of custom handles made for one of my dunnage canes. He brought a slab of curly maple to the shop and we discussed the types of handles, one long grip and one ball end. He wanted a military challenge coin...
  5. Sapele & Pecan Urn

    This is urn #2 in my recent builds. I have a few lidded hollow forms that I am not calling urns though I suppose they could be used as urns. I am calling this one an urn because it has a 16 t.p.i. threaded lid. This urn has a pecan body, a threaded ash collar, a threaded oak post, sapele lid...
  6. 3 Tier Coin Display

    A customer at one of the craft shows asked if I could do a 3 level coin holder. She didn't want anything fancy, so I made three standard 2 slot holders and epoxied them together. Indian Don't know wood. Sanded to 320 grit, sealed with 2# shellac, polished on the Beall buff system. I think the...
  7. Christmas Present... Past (wooden thread).

    Boys and Girls, majuvla's (aka. Ivan, probably through the compliments of the Hrvatska policija) project of some paper draped, upright erections reminded me of this little bereft project… thanks maj'. Who says I don't make Christmas presents for friends... which by the way were never...
  8. Poker table

    Poker table and garage. Both get alot of use! But not for parking cars. LOL The cpl of other pic's are the garage. Not to brag, but all men should have a urinal in their garage>.... Cool huh? Wife and I did the remodel. She is a great partner, until she tells me how I'm doing it wrong! LOL...
  9. Knife family

    Tried my hand at some scale making. Species used were claro walnut, peruvian walnut, maple burl, padauk, and maple/walnut veneer. Used brass pins and 30 minute epoxy to set the scales onto the blades. Finished with multiple coats of Tru Oil and buffed out on the Beall lathe system. Not flawless...
  10. Knitting hook handles

    A customer had a set of hooks just for making socks on a loom. However the handles were too small (1/2 inch diameter) and hurt her hands. These handles are 1 inch at the small end and about 1 1/2 inches at the largest diameter. They are 5 inches total length including the hooks. The wood is...
  11. Bathroom Projects (Floating Shelves and Medicine Cabinet)

    I renovated my bathroom and I took the opportunity to make a couple custom fixtures for it. Floating Shelves: Since the studs were in non-ideal areas (and I wasn't about to attach them to drywall alone), I decided to attach the shelves to pieces of plywood that span the studs, and attach those...
  12. Ash Vase

    I recently turned this small vase out of Ash. It is about 5″ tall, 3 1/2″ in diameter at its widest and an 1 3/4″ at its base. As I finished it with the Beall Buffing System and noticed that the red Tripoli gave the grain a pinkish hue. No doubt a concern when using this system but on this...
  13. Pack of Howling Dogs

    For our daughter's 1st birthday, I decided to draft up a party favor toy for the babies coming to celebrate. The baby's been copying our dog howling so thought it'd be fun to capture that moment in the toys! The rolling dog toys are made out of poplar, unfinished. Not sure if our dog approves...

  14. Cigar Humidor

    I made a small desktop humidor for my cigars. I don't smoke often at all, but being a woodworker it was hard to resist making one. The purpose of a humidor is to keep cigars at the proper humidity (65-70%) and temperature (70deg). CONSTRUCTION: Dovetail joints for the sides. Lid and bottom...
  15. Padouk and Maple Box

    Grandson Ian was over, and he wanted to build a box, so we went into my shop and found some maple and padouk scraps, then designed and sized the box to fit the material. I also had a few pairs of small hinges and some scraps of refinished maple plywood for the bottom (cutoffs from drawer bottoms...
  16. Cigar Humidor #2

    This humidor is nearly identicle to the one I posted yesterday. CONSTRUCTION: Dovetail joints for the sides. Lid and bottom tongue and groove. Walnut sides and bottom. Birdseye Maple lid. The insides are lined with 1/4" spanish cedar. The sides of the bottom stick up into the lid 1/4" to...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi, I am considering to get a Beall buffing system in the future. I cannot use my grinder for it, it's too small and too weak. I then need a motor. I am a hobbyist and the system won't see a continuous use so I do not need something that will run for hours on. Room being utterly limited I am...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I just saw in the Lee Valley pre Christmas catalog that Beall makes a magnetic angle degree digital checker similar to the one by Wixey. Anyone used the Beall model? Advantages?

    Intro Greetings Lumberjocks, Two years ago I finally got a space for my own. The basement of MY own house! Later I will explain how the shop has grown, but for now, I will just say, how great it is to have a space to express my creative side. Financial limitations (child support - love and...
