  1. tinder box

    this is a tinder box made from spalted oak. its an odd shaped piece that required three legs to level it out, the three legs are mahogany that are attached with maple pegs, the top rotates off to either side to reveal three compartments , that will hold a few piecies of jewelry of any small item...
  2. Shop dustpan

    I've been needing a dust pan for my shop for a while. I have a cheap one, but in order to sweep up, I end up having to bend down, and with my bad back, that's no fun. So when I saw the one in Popular Woodworking by The Schwarz, I added that to my to-do list. I cut a couple pieces of elm for the...
  3. Captain's beds

    I made two of these captains beds for our twin daughters. That was years ago and the girls are in college now. The problem is neither girl will allow us to get rid of the beds so we are stuck storing them until "someday" when they want to use them with their own kids. Each bed has 14 drawers...
  4. Wooden Smoothing Veritas Bench Plane with Depth Skids/Gauges

    VIDEO: PLANS: See step-by-step instructions on Shaper Hub to make this project with Shaper Origin DavePolaschek saw me tweeting about hand planes on Twitter. Said, "hey, check out lumberjocks.com" (or something to that effect) and I started posting projects. Then he said "hey, check out this...
  5. Plane Rack

    I finally got around to building a plane rack to go with the chisel rack I built earlier in the year. It doesn't hold all of my planes, just the ones I use most. I say that but like most people, I don't use all of the Stanley bench planes. They look cool though. I'm still in the process of...
  6. Kids art desk/easel thing

    Made this little desk and chair a few months ago for my 3 year old daughter, it was one of those 'make it up as you go along' projects. She needed somewhere to keep all her art supplies (she loves painting and drawing) and it made sense to incorporate it into a little easel. It's pretty much a...
  7. M&M Dispenser

    Just a fun little project done between the bigger ones. Walnut sides, oak base, oak ply back, plexi front, mystery wood dowel, all with natural danish oil finish
  8. James' 50th B-day Winestopper

    Well…sorry about the pictures…I was madly shining this one up and forgot to take pictures because I was in a hurry to get to the surprise party…wasnt going to post it until I realized the pictures from the Party turned out pretty good… Meet my colleague James…a fellow history teacher and a...
  9. The Vic-Tern

    Just about exactly a year ago, I posted a project called the Vic-tar. That project was a gift for our musically gifted student pastor who was leaving us after a year of "student preaching". Well it's that time a year again, and I might have set precedence for myself, with the endeavor to...
  10. Bailey Bench Plane #4 Restoration

    First, I was unsure as to the best place to post this "project". The handles are made of wood, right? They were sanded and refinished with a couple coats of tung oil. The plane was cleaned and repainted. The iron sharpened and the back flattened. I am a hand plane beginner. I have recently...
  11. First Fountain Pens

    Here are my first two fountain pens from "Classic" kits from PennState. Top is Rosewood and turned beautifully. It's got great whirls and figuring in the cap that didn't quite make it to the photograph. Middle is White and Black Ebony with very little white grain, but good figuring and a...

  12. #5 Antique Bench Plane

    Ok, so the project is a little more involved than just the woodworking, but I couldn't show the work I did on the 2 Totes without them being mounted on the tool. I found this Plane in a bucket in an open shed. It had a missing handle and wasn't in very good condition. i suppose I could have...
  13. Small Bench Plane

    I made this plane from a Hock Tools plan. It is 6" long and has a 1 1/4" Hock blade set. The core is Yellow Poplar, sides are Red Oak, the wedge is Walnut. The cross pin is Cherry drilled through to accept the handle from a discarded foam brush as the tenon. The sole plate is Bois d' Arc and...
  14. World's Smallest Vase

    I was goofing off on the lathe today, and with nothing more to turn than a few small pieces of redwood I popped this thing out. I have a desire to make a full size hollow form sometime, so this was a bit of practice… I custom ground a tool just to hollow this bad boy out. I would say the...
  15. Easy to build Entry Table from Scrap Wood

    Hey Guys, So I started this project, because I had built in the past a coffee table and Side Table. I had wood left over from those projects (small sticks of Ash, that I was given), so I had been itching to get it off my lumber rack. My wife has been bugging me for a shoe rack, so I came up...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Cleaning out the old storage room in the shop and came across some brand new Stanley Number 5 planes. We are a "Normite" shop and basically use power tools. I have 2- Stanley 12-205 Bench planes, 2-Stanley 12-005L Bench Planes and 2-Craftsman 37065 Jack Planes. One of the Craftsman has been...
  17. Hand Tools
    Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know I picked up a Kobalt Bench plane from lowes about 2 weeks ago. It's not the best smoother. Although after you flatten the sole and tune up the blade and frog it did take pretty decent shavings. However, I have better planes for smoothing, but I do not have...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Folks I need a nice storage for my bench planes, I'm looking for something to hang it to the wall, it needs to hold all this + 4 more planes and several chisels, saws, mallets, etc… all kind of hand tools… Any idea/ suggestion? Thanks
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi All, I am looking to buy my first plane. I want to start the set with a general purpose plane that can be used for several jobs. So my question is: If you could buy just one plane for under $200, which would you choose? Eventually I will add to the set but don't want to drop $500+ all at...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am trying to decide whether to buy the LN #4 bronze or the LN #4 1/2. I don't really know what the difference would be so I was wanting to see if anyone had either or had an idea which would be a better all around smoother. I mainly want it to finish leveling my boards after all machining and...
