  2. Jewelry Box

    The first jewelry box I ever made. Milled palletwood, used box joints and chamfers. Handle from the local hardware store and felt from a fabric store.
  3. Pallet Made Desktop Organizer

    There are so many things that you can make from a pallet. I found one recently and it was in rough shape…..and I mean rough shape. After cleaning it up and making a few dados and rabbets I had a nice looking desktop organizer. It can hold regular sized computer paper, pens, pencils, and even...
  4. Sometimes I a maze myself

    I always wanted to make a wooden maze so I did. The material is lumber core that was salvaged from a Sylvania console stereo that my Dad bought in the early '60s. It's 7/8" thick with a poplar core and mahagony veneer on both sides. The side I cut was the better mahagony side. I cut the maze...
  5. My very first project

    This was my very first woodworking project just a few years ago. This was literally my first "step" into the craft. I had a jig saw, circular saw, and a hammer; that's about it! I made this step stool for my wife to be able to reach the top shelves in her closet. It's made from plywood and an...
  6. Yellawood Garden Bench

    Here is the garden bench I built for my wife on mothers day (yeah a little late on posting this). It is made of standard pressure treated home center lumber. I built it in a single day using nothing more than my miter saw and a cordless drill/driver. It went together very easily and is quite...
  7. My first bookshelf--lessons learned

    This was my first major piece of furniture. The only power tools I had were a circular saw, a cordless drill, and a palm sander. It lived in my office unfinished for several months because I ran out of time before finishing it. I wanted to post it only because it reminds me how much I have...
  8. Memorial Traveling Trophy

    I grew up as part of a German dance group. Was fortunate to make some great, life-long friends all over the country, including one young lady from our sister group in LA. Sadly, we lost her to a senseless act of violence a little more then ten years ago. To honor her, a congeniality prize she...
  9. Kids' toolbox template

    This little project saved my future in the hobby. Frustrated by a day of god-awful mistakes and errors on another project and with time running out before I had to put my tools into storage for the season, I woke up one morning and started cutting wood sitting around my deck and was reminded of...
  10. Litter Box Cabinet

    A very early project of mine was a litter box to match our bathroom cabinets (and bathroom for that matter). It was also my first set of raised panel doors. Lesson learned: don't use crappy raised panel router bits unless you like sanding. This piece was also made before I took into account...

    Got a surprise present the other day and I am looking forward to use these beautiful Sweet Heart chisels but before I will ,I thought I better make myself a nice little chisel mallet . The mallet is laminated hickory for the handle and filled in with lacewood and a walnut butt ,the head is wood...

  13. Skill Builder Box #1 - Pine valet

    This is a skill builder box. I'm obviously not much above a beginner and I decided that I had read enough and watched enough videos. It is time to start to build and make mistakes and learn from those. This is the first box in what I hope will be a series. Box goals: Build a valet for my...
  14. First Shed Shop project

    Shed Shop premier Astromech Pen Holder! I started this project when I first moved into our townhouse. My power tools consisted of my Makita drill set, and circular saw. I turned this using my drill in a jig to make it work like a lathe, and sandpaper. Yes, I said I turned this with sandpaper! I...
  15. New Tablesaw Outfeed/Assembly Table

    Moved into my new shop earlier this year and am now in the organization/outfitting phase. Since some of the first projects will involve building cabinets, I needed a new outfeed table that also doubled as an assembly/glue-up station. Want to give a "shout-out" here to Marie at DIY Montreal who...
  16. Tissue box with dove tails

    What do you do with scraps of pine that you were practicing dovetails with? Make a tissue box. I was practicing my dovetails and saw cuts on a few strips of 1×6 pine. I cut several pieces about an inch thick and glued it together to fit the dimensions of a Klenex box. Not pretty at all, and...

    Flag case, sides made of 15mm oak, 3mm plywood back, overal dimensions 40×40cm, finish wood oil, base 40mm thick, 3mm glass. Splines were made of wenge.
  18. Crib Mobile

    We were in need of a crib mobile and my wife was on the hunt at local stores, while I was on the hunt for ideas on how I could build it myself. Once I had the concept down I showed my wife and she liked the idea of me building one vs. buying one. It uses old scrap walnut material and is more...
  19. Office Desk build! (Video Link attached)

    I built an office desk for my girlfriend. Its a pretty simple design and was all done with minimal tools. It is incredibly sturdy and would recommend this to anyone that is looking to build their own desk. It was about $100 or less in materials if I remember correctly. Here's a link to the...
  20. Duck Call

    This is a duck call that I made out of Goncalo Alves (I believe). It has a walnut celtic knot in the barrel. The finish is just an oil finish as it was made to sit on my shelf for people to see. I make the whole tone board and tune it myself. This is my first celtic knot and it came out great...
