  1. Mobile Drill Guide Stand

    Mobile Drill Guide Stand. Many times I had the need to drill vertical holes with a drill bit, a forstner bit or a holesaw that the surface did not fit on my drill press. At first I designed a vertical drill guide stand based on dovetail slides, but been able to find a 30cm drawer guide that...
  2. THIN RIP JIG (Not woodpecker but it’s under $20)

    I've had a rip jig for a while now but that one was at its life cycle so I was looking around to see what was available. I stumbled on woodpecker thin rip jig and as anybody who has looked at their product would know, they are very expensive ($150 for their jig). Reusing some parts from the...
  3. Thorsen Table challenge entry

    My version of the project stays close to the inspiration project, relying on variations in the specified species as well as some rounding of the outer parts of the breadboard ends. I used African Mahogany for the top, aprons, stretchers, and shelf; Santos Mahogany for the legs and breadboards...
  4. Kinestrata, a wooden marble machine

    Kinestrata, whose roots translate to "motion layers" was a six month effort. The machine's 390 parts took roughly 400 hours to design and construct, and over 100 more to document. Kinestrata is fully mechanical, weight and escapement driven, contains four unique tracks, operates continuously for...

  6. Chair

    Chiropractic Cervical Chair. Made of pine (underneath fabric), BCX plywood, and oak legs and supports. The hinged mechanism on the back allows for the backrest to be set at different reclining angles, or to be completely lowered to the floor. All upholstery was done by me as well. Thanks for...
  7. Lazy Susan

    This is not an original idea, I picked it up in a magazine some time ago - It took me all of 30 minutes to make, but it will last and be used for a lot longer than that. The material is just compressed chip flooring I had left over, the ball bearing castors I got from Rockler, for a project...
  8. More Skateboards! (from 2x4's)

    Been making some skateboards lately! All of these decks are "planks" made from a single 2×4 each. You can see the way they are glued up in the first picture. The hardware (trucks, wheels, bearings) was purchased from Amazon. These longboards are for sidewalk cruising, not bombing down hills...
  9. Oven Stick

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] This is an oven 'safety' stick I made for my wife, or anyone who uses our oven. I figure if I use a push stick on the table saw then she deserves a push-pull stick for a hot oven. The project has been kicking around my shop for at least a month while I got other...
  10. 2013 Pinewood Derby Butcher Block

    The 2013 Pinewood Derby season was my best car - The Butcher Block. I talked a lot of smack with the Scouts and every kid wanted to race against me. We have a great Scout Hut where everyone gathers for a weekend and kids learn to cut wood, shape it, sand it, and treat various small wounds and...

Tumbling Blocks. One heading to the USA My take on Elegant Ellens Kaleidoscope meets Lazy Larry Pic...
  12. A Bunch of Wedding projects

    My Buddy's sister-in-law was got married yesterday (the reason for this project), and I finally got a chance to take pictures of all the projects that we did for the reception. She was having a "rustic" theme (as it was held in a barn), and thanks to Pinterest, gave us lots of project ideas...

    Maple desk and hutch I made for my wife about 3 years ago. Top is 2 layers of plywood banded on 3 sides with solid maple. Carcasss is plywood with solid maple face frames. Solid maple drawer fronts and frame & panel doors. Door on the left houses a file drawer; door on the right opens like a...
  14. Distressed Tool Chest

    This project was inspired by an antique craftsman style tool chest from a flea market. Another family member purchased one and I liked it so much that I decided to make one based loosely on the antique. My wife loves antique furniture so it was a fun challenge to make it look old and weather...
  15. Wow, that's some push block.

    This requires some explanation. Otherwise, it may just be seen as a violation of the lumberjocks' code. Many years ago (I think my children were in elementary school at the time), I found a big wooden plane at a flea market. I think I paid $5 or $10 for it, and even as a novice woodworker I...
  16. Cyndi's Bookcase - Quarter sawn red oak.

    Dec 2014 Here's a bookcase, similar to the one I posted earlier "Liam's Bookcase", made from quarter sawn red oak. My client wanted red oak, not my favorite, and when Woodcraft had a killer wood sale with QS red oak at less than $4/bf I couldn't resist. During my Sickley phase, a bedroom...
  17. Rustic Bird Feeders

    My step daughter shot me a picture of a rustic bird feeder made from a log and asked if I could make one similar and out of birch. The one on the right is my first attempt by drilling, milling and relieving the inside with a die grinder. I think it is pecan wood because it smelled sooo- good...
  18. Simple Walnut Box

    One of my first significant woodworking projects, this simple walnut box was my first ever use of a box joint. I constructed a simple jig for cutting the joints using plywood and scrap red oak. The jig was used in conjunction with a well-worn Makita contractor tablesaw. The cuts were made...
  19. Bookcase

    Small bookcase I did for an attorney in his newly remodeled office. Nothing fancy just a basic bookcase.
  20. Mushroom Wood and Red/Grey Hemlock Siding Sliding Barn Door

    The sliding doors I make allow me to put multiple types of wood surfaces on each side of the door so it can blend with whatever motif the customer has in the room(s). On one side of this door is our reclaimed mushroom wood siding that we surfaced and lacquered. The other side is reclaimed...
