  1. The Baristas' Valentine Knife

    A couple weeks ago I went to the drive thru coffee shop and the barista ordered a knife-I didn't get coffee!!! All's good. She gave this knife to a friend on Valentine's Day. The materials used: 1) water buffalo horn, 2) acrylic liners, 3) brass, and 4) sapele wood. Plus, hours of assembly...
  2. Scraper Shaves (from ShopNotes issue 112)

    Ok I just have way too much time on my hands, What a great thing! JasonD and Karson posted their versions of the scraper shaves from ShopNotes issue #112 and being the copycat that I am decided that I needed to make some of my own. I used oak for the insert and some mystery wood for the handles...
  3. A custom keychain I made as a gift for a client with his initials inlayed with brass

    A quick and simple project I made, mostly relying on the skills of my CNC mill. BUT my customer was happy to get this as a gift ! I detailed the whole process in a video that you can see here : The keychain is made of walnut with brass inlays (customers initials on one side, my brand on the...
  4. Dovetail Saw and Bit Driver for the Winter 2017 Tool Swap

    This is the swap tool set I made for ki7hy for the Fall/Winter 2016 Lumberjock's surprise swap. It is a 9-inch dovetail saw with about 2-inch depth of cut. The saw plate is .020-inch spring steel, 15 points per inch, filed rip cut. There is about a 1/8-inch to 3/16-inch taper to the plate. The...

  6. Finished Birdhouse

    this is a birdhouse that I made for my dad for Christmas. It is made of cypress, it has a brass rustic keyhole plate with a little skeleton key for the perch so the bird can enter the birdhouse. I used some 3M spray glue to glue the dried moss onto the roof. The keyhole i cut out with a...
  7. Ships wheel coffee table

    I bought this solid brass ship's wheel in Wakkanai Japan in 1970 from a scrap dealer for about $10.00. I have been moving it all around with me for the last 39 years. Finally, I decided to make it into a usable piece of furniture. The crossed feet are some kind of mahogany from wooden boat plank...
  8. Small Shoulder Plane

    Hi Folks This is a plane a customer requested - a shoulder plane with a 10mm width. The timber is Santos Rosewood and it has a solid brass sole. This plane is tiny, measuring 140mm long and 45mm tall. It is a little delicate but works perfectly. I found working on such a small scale quite...
  9. Sanding Blocks for 2017 Summer Swap

    For one of my swap items I made a simple yet elegant set of dedicated grit sanding blocks. They are made from Walnut and Oak that I milled up myself. The brass knob came from Rockler. The concept is pretty simple but I wanted to make items that most of us could use but never actually take the...
  10. Ebb Tide

    Another box with subtle shaping trying to convey a sense of calm. I love how the surf shapes the sand at the edge of the beach and was hoping to express that in the top. I gently shaped the body to invite touching but not distract from the top. Details: The body is wenge and the top is Oregon...

  12. Surprise Swap scraper plane

    As part of the spring 2017 surprise swap, I decided to make a scraper plane. But rather than a 112-style scraper, I prefer the Stanley #80. I use spokeshaves in a lot of places where normal people use planes. I started by cutting some handles from some 8/4 red oak I have on hand. For the front...
  13. Surprise swap beading plane with adjustable fence

    After I had wrapped up my scraper plane for the spring 2017 surprise swap it felt like the pressure was off a little. I had drawn Mark Kornell as a recipient and Mark makes planes. Well, I'd made a plane I didn't feel bad about sending to him, but I wanted to make something else to sweeten the...
  14. Mahogany Marking Gauge

    My Father had found an old mahogany lamp I had made in high school shop class, while cleaning out his garage. The lamp was made more than 25 years ago and wasn't done very well. The glue joints had all begun to separate, the finish was flaking off and lamp head kept falling off because I...
  15. Ship's Wheel Clock

    Here's a project for people that like to do spindle turning and segmented turning. I'd say, though, that there's more woodworking than woodturning in this project. The photo shows the prototype that I recently finished which is 15-1/2" diameter. The The clock in this version is a 5-1/2" brass...

  17. Music

    I was asked to make a box for a friend ( Ardel ) to hold her new hearing aids and this is what I came up with. It needed to be small enough to fit in a purse, but still managable for elderly hands. The lid split @ the hinge location on the first one, so I started over after salvaging the body. I...
  18. Addington Hammer

    I need a veneer hammer in the near future and remembered Luke Addington's version (it was in 'My Favorites' since day one). I decided to try my hand at copying his, except with walnut instead of ebony. I kept the handle on the lathe as long as possible throughout the finishing process, paste...

  20. Small Hacksaw a la Jack Houweling

    The other day someone in the craft hall was looking to borrow a hack saw to cut a bolt. I didn't have one, but I can foresee that I may need one one day. There are some metal parts on cellos and double basses. I remember this video [link] from Jack Houweling from a while ago and decided go...
