  2. Toboggan from years past

    24 years ago, on a weekend away from my new career as an air traffic controller, I purchased an inexpensive Craftsman 10" contractors saw. I made a couple of finger boards out of scrap 2×4. I found a local lumberyard and bought some 8/4 ash. Using the saw and finger boards to hold the ash to the...

  4. Live Edge Cherry and Walnut Foyer Table

    This project is a retirement present for my wife. The curved legs posed a real learning curve for me. I lost two in the process. Lessons learned: 1. Watch the grain pattern. It can break very easily if you try to fight it and it is too acute. 2. Make the form a tighter radius than the...
  5. Contemporary Shelving

    This project was quite an undertaking. I had no idea what I was getting in to when I started it, but it turned out great and I'm glad I got to do it. It taught me a lot about a number of techniques. As you'll see from the pictures, these shelves were made to hold up a pair of 90 lb. vases. The...

    First off, let me give full credit to fellow Lumberjock "Heavy" (http://lumberjocks.com/Heavy) and his post on how to make your own bentwood ring (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/91767). I don't know how to "tag" him in the project, if anyone else could, I would love for him to see my first...

  10. Cherry Cello Stand

    I recently completed this piece for my boss' daughter's Christmas present. She has always played the cello and has recently gotten back into it. Previously it was awkwardly leaning in a corner of the room. This was an interesting project in that I had a difficult time coming up with a...

  13. Bent Wood Ring #1

    First a big thanks goes out to Mišo Hlavati for posting a very good video of how he makes a bent wood ring. Mišo talks about using veneer which is what i did but I didn't purchase mine. To make this I used a dead broken limb from a Formosa tree in my parents back yard that had apparently dried...
  14. Bowl

    I will name this one HEARTBREAK so befoer you make a positive comment take a closer look. I thought I would finish turning this bowl even though it had a couple stress cracks from drying. It was a 12 inch diameter so maybe I left a little too much shell. I hated to throw it away so filled the...
  15. longboard 1.0 : loyal dean style

    my first real woodworking project, and I was quite ambitious. I didn't want to make a longboard with just plywood, so I decided to make one with a plywood core and outer layers composed of oak and some other types of wood. The bending process was difficult, since I don't have all the right...
  16. Farm Style Table

    This is another Farm Style Table. My lesson is to show simple joints here and a assemble reassemble point for moving and a table top reuse. The legs for this are from 2 by 3 stock which are cheaper but measure 2 and a half so a little less bulky leg still with the character of construction...
  17. Help! How do I bend this?

    Hello fellow lumberjocks! I have a student who is making a table and wants to add this fancy trim to the feet. Trouble is the trim is straight and his feet are most decidedly curved. Here is a the student's project. http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/McCrafter/projects Anyone know how to bend...
  18. Batch of Shaker Boxes

    Latest batch of boxes sized 0, 1 and 2. Hard Maple boxes with various woods for the tops. I resaw all the wood for the banding, maple is pretty forgiving as far as face vs. quarter sawn grain. Two have walnut top bands in this batch and look forward to working some more walnut for full boxes...
  19. Boat bed | Red

    This project was built for a customer that had a bad experiance with another online furniture store. They never received their furniture. At the customers request we took lots of pictures for them to put in a scrape book, so I have lots of them. I'll put some in this post, but more is...
  20. Bentwood Ring - Rosewood with Guitar String Inlay

    Bentwood Ring - Rosewood with Guitar String Inlay These are tricky. Guitar string is stubborn and bending them to stay in place is tough. Those suckers like to stay straight but inlaying guitar string have taught me patience. :) I am always looking for new and unique ideas to inlay but was...
