  1. Small shelf or???

    Well I been kinda busy cleaning up the old vise I recently recieved from a friend, but in the midst of this I was also working on a small storage shelf for possibly drill bits? or something!!. The main problem is I always tend to wander around in circles when I get free time in the shop and...
  2. First ever bowl on the lathe (osage orange wood)

    Other than helping turn a few pens on a friends midi lathe- this is the first ever woodturned project I have made. I recently bought an older cheap lathe on a homebuilt stand to try my hand at doing this sort of stuff and so far I love it. I'm planning on practicing more with what I have then...
  3. Floating bookshelf

    This is a bookshelf I made for one of my sisters. It spans the 10' room from one wall to the other directly above her french doors in her office. She needed a place to stack her reference books for her landscaping design business. The "IVA" you see on the left hand side is really "DIVA" since...
  4. 1st ever wood project! Toy shower 1:12 Scale

    I'm excited to show first project. A simple toy shower. It was cut as straight as I could with scroll saw- no pattern. Sanded. No stain/paint/little shower head etc as my 4 yr old refused to let it go! The tiny slits for curtain rod wire was a 1/16 hole then used the actual little scroll saw...
  5. Simple Backyard TV Stand

    A quick project for a friend: a TV stand/table for his backyard patio, made to his specs. Used only a table saw, mitre and impact driver. Also a brad nailer for some minor trim work on the bottom shelf. And a router to soften up the corners of the legs.
  6. First box

    I'm pretty new to woodworking. This is my first attempt at a box - a keepsake box for my daughter. It is made of cherry and hard maple and finished with Danish Oil. Overall I'm fairly happy with it but I definitely think I could make limprovements in the next one. Oh well…my wife and daughter...
  7. Two-Step Step Stool

    This is my first project to post and first one I've completed! Just got some woodworking gear for Christmas and wanted to make a step stool for my daughter as she is about ready for a normal bed. My wife thought the WWMM template would be the best for this, and I was hoping to give one of...
  8. My first sawhorses.

    Some sawhorses. The first wood working project I have undertaken independently. I needed something simple and straight forward that I could build with the tools I have right now-a framing hammer, and an inexpensive handsaw. Enter the 14 Minute Sawhorses. When I saw these plans I swooned...
  9. Wood Notebooks

    Made these wooden notebooks and filmed my first woodworking video for my new Youtube. Looking to make more in the future. Video Link Below KevBotWorkshop - Wooden Notebook Build Notebooks were assembled like small cutting boards, book matched, finished with Arm R Seal Satin. Pupleheart and...
  10. My second knife with an unexpected stain for the wood

    This is my second knife. I made it mainly only to practice different technigues and see how the design works in real life. The knife turned out much better looking tahn expected and it fit my hand relly well. This was a budget build and I'm only using some scrap materials (pine and unknown...
  11. First Attempt at Handcut Through Dovetails

    I've been wanting to try out some of the more traditional joinery methods since I've been perusing this site daily and checking out more advanced skills here and elsewhere on the web. I've been reading a lot (and I mean a lot) about dovetails, box/finger joints, mortises & tenons, etc. online...
  12. Mahogany Tool Box w/Sliding & Locking Overhead Drawer Stop

    First real project from design to finish from rough sawn hardwood. Three hand cut dovetail drawers in a hand cut dovetailed carcass. The front frame and panel piece slides out and hinges down to keep the drawers in place while transporting. It locks via a half-mortised brass lock and features a...
  13. First Krenov Block Plane

    I was at Woodcraft yesterday and after a bit of work on some old wood hand planes i couldn't help but buy a Hock iron and build my own. I used some American Elm (I know, it's somewhat soft but it's free!). It's a bevel down Krenov style that cuts great and I couldn't be happier with my first...
  14. Baby cradle

    The cliché lumberjock builds workbenches, jigs and baby cradles - I line up perfectly. The shape of the cradle is inspired by bauhaus concepts, the front reminds of the trochoid runner of a wankel engine. The formality of the design is balanced by a crown on the head piece. This baby cradle is...
  15. Little Luke's Step Stool

    My sister asked if I could make a step stool for her new step grand-baby Luke. I had been wanting to try this plan out for some time. It was fun to make, tho next time I'll probably do a few things differently. I think the dowel for the back support is either too close to the back or the sides...
  16. Modern Coat Rack I Made In Just A Few Hours

    Simple DIY Coatrack Build I built this simple DIY coatrack in less than one day, using just a 2×4 and a hardwood dowel. I happened to have a drill press on my Shopsmith so I used that, but a drill with a drill guide (about $20 from Harbor Freight) can do the job just about as well. This...
  17. Simple Winding Sticks

    Proof that tools don't need to be complicated. I needed a pair of winding sticks to help with flattening stock. Looking around the house, I found package of paint stirring sticks from Home Depot. Already perfectly flat and aligned with each other, I just cut the shaped handles off, drilled...
  18. Orchid Green house for my wife

    what happens when an orchid hobby grows too big to keep it inside? ????: "Honey, can you make me a green house for my orchids?" And what do we do? Of course we build it! Because that's what we do and that's what we like to do. Ready and closed. Strict no-entry policy for iguanas At the time...
  19. Wave Mail Holder

    This was a small project I designed as a bandsaw exercise, and I'm very pleased with how it came out. The "wave" is made of red oak with gloss poly and the bottom is poplar, stained with Minwax red oak and finished with gloss poly. Using 1/4" plywood, I created patterns for each piece of the...
  20. Animal Train For Toddlers

    I am a total beginner at woodworking and toy making. This is a small animal train that I recently made and my wife painted. The plans came from a book. I cut it out via a combination of a scroll saw and bandsaw. They are from a pine 1×6, I made the wheels via a keyhole blade in the same 1×6...
