  1. Big Green Egg Table - Cedar

    We built an outdoor pavilion and decided to add a Big Green Egg. Of course, I couldn't buy a table, had to make my own. I used cedar, legs from left over saw mill logs, and the other from rough cut cedar boards I bought. All in all, turned out pretty well and decided to leave unfinished and...
  2. Reclaimed pallet wood cutting board (mostly white and red oak)

    The series for this project - here is quite in-depth, so I won't recreate it here. I'll just sum up… I got a stack of slats from a pallet from a local bearing shop all cut up nicely in a stack of 14"-16" pieces. Sorting them, I found many that appeared to be kinds of oak. I ran these over the...
  3. Brand

    I recently designed a custom brand and had it made through Terry Desilets (www.branding-irons.biz). Considering how few woodworking projects I've actually completed, this may be putting the cart before the horse. No matter-I had fun with it anyway, and I'm sure I'll stick with the hobby for the...

  5. Cowboy

    The owner of this Marlin 30-30 is also a ranch owner. I engraved a cowboy silluoute with a skull of a long horn bull and added other details specific to his ranch such as the horse shoes and his "flying A" brand. He to wanted his brand engraved on the other side of the butt stock.
  6. Let's get ready to brand!

    Finally! My woodbrand with my custom logo arrived today - right before the big east coast storm! I used a simple 3/4" square design with back-to-back R's on top of overlapped W's. Stands for "Robert Rhoades Wood Works". It is nice to have matching initials sometimes! ;-) I tried it out a...
  7. Copper on Box

    I've wanted to combine minerals with wood in some manner for several years and finally decided the time was right. I searched online and found plans for a duplicator that used a trim router. The web site said the total cost of the project should be under $200, $500 latter I had my duplicator...

    toy
  9. A couple of boxes

    The first one is obviously an Andy art box, Wenge and figured maple, many thanks to Andy for his blog. The maple band around the top was a "design change" after I cut the channel for the bottom on the wrong side of the back piece. I really wanted to have the grain of the Wenge to continue around...

  11. USAF Security Forces Challenge Coin Stand

    To represent Security Police in the Air Force, thought I'd design a coin stand with a skull and the new AF logo. Defenders of the Force can display up to 35 variously sized Challenge coins in this rack made of red oak and cherry wood.
  12. Phone Stand / Speaker Horn

    Playing around with Dustin Penner's design. I changed the size and curves a little. Made from 3/4" birch ply and recycled drawer bottoms (1/4" mahogany ply). I hope to make more and play around with curve shapes and sizes. edit, direct link to video
  13. Trying out my new branding iron

    My parents got me a branding iron for Christmas, and I finally got the head in the mail a few days ago. I was just itching to try it out on a few different woods, so I had some half finished projects that I was able to get done rather quickly, and this is the result. It definitely requires...
  14. Amazing

    Amazing the smiles a simple piece of Cherry brings when your niece asks you for a 5 hook Coat Rack. Sand it down real good, apply a nice beaded edge, and finish in Linseed Oil, Shellac and a top coat of wax. And they always like when you brand the back. Some projects are hard and bring smiles...

  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello All, I have a question for all you festool users. I am planning on buying a festool rotex 125 sander and I was curious about where to get replacement sanding discs. Due to the unique design of festools dust collection I am wondering if I would be stuck buying ALL replacement sanding...
  20. Hand Tools
    I want to get a hand plane that's decent in order to flatten rough sawn boards and could be used for other general purposes. I'd like to get a 5 1/2 jack plane for this. I was looking at Wood River because it seems to be a decent brand, but much less expensive than either Veritas or Lie Nielsen...
