  1. Bench fit for a Cabin

    Well, it's going somewhere but it's not going anywhere…. My SIL asked me to make a bench for my BIL; stating that he has always wanted one for their mountain cabin in New Mexico. She knew I dabbled in woodworking and trusted me enough to come up with something after showing me a couple ideas...
  2. will the real Wizzardofwood please stand up

    This was carved by me at age 11 it has long since inspired me to move on to better things but it is also my company LOGO and the real wizzardofwood
  3. Swiss Cowbell Tower

    Swiss Cowbell Stand.... Number 4 in the series. This is a commissioned piece, constructed of walnut and sized to fit the clients special family bell. I have done three others in oak, and the last three have all featured a sort of bridle joint, allowing the saddle to be lifted off the uprights to...
  4. Coffee ceremony shrine - Kōhī gishiki kokumotsu kibako.

    Coffee ceremony shrine Kōhī gishiki kokumotsu kibako. Finally I can upload this as a finished project, it ended up taking a long time, before I got to do the finish, du to the fact I have moved to my allotment house (summerhouse) for the summer and have plenty to do here. This post is from a...
  5. Foyer Bench with live edge seat and bit of Danish Modern

    This is my version of a bench by Nigel Alcorn that he posted pictures of on pinterest. I changed up the joinery and the seat but stayed with his lines and leg/arm design. I bought two very rough 4/4 big leaf maple slabs 7 years ago on kjiji and have been trying to find the right project for...
  6. Luggage racks

    With three adult children and grandchildren coming to visit, my Dad decided that since he felt like he was running a hotel it should be provisioned like a hotel and asked me to make some luggage holders for the guest bedrooms to make life a little easier for all concerned… and here is the...
  7. Bedside Tables with Floating Top

    I built these two small tables for our bedroom going for an asian feel. I like the floating top idea, and wanted to use the bridle joints at the top of the legs as well as the open shelf on the lower portion to keep the feeling of simplicity throughout. Pine and Red Oak, so they're small and light.
  8. Greene & Greene Style Side Table

    I promised my wonderful wife, Helen, that I would build her a reading table to place alongside our rocking chair in our upstairs bedroom. She fantasizes about sitting alone, gently rocking, and quietly reading while having a comfortable place to set her drink and reading lamp. Nevermind that...
  9. Jayne's Rowboat Rocker

    So this is the completed boat rocker. It took me way too long to complete, but Jayne finally got her boat on her birthday in June. The details of the build can be found in my blog.
  10. Rustic Bean Bag Game

    My version of a "rustic" bean bag toss game. I wanted it to have the look of being well used (it's going to a log cabin lake home). Finished with 6 coats of rattle can lacquer and sanded between coats (it is glass smooth). It is regulation size, 24"x48", height is 3" in front and 12" in back.
  11. My version of the Parallel Clamp

    This is my version of a parallel clamp design from one of the Lumber Jock members. After purchasing the plans for reasonable price (really a steal) I adjusted the materials list to accommodate the wood I had laying around. Instead of using electrical pipe I use left over galvanized pipe from an...
  12. Walnut & Padauk Side Table – “Defiance”

    Yay!!! I am beyond thrilled with how this Walnut & Padauk side table turned out! I painstakingly chiseled every joint by hand and ALMOST enjoyed every second of it! ;) This was my first time working with Padauk and I must say, for a flatboarder, it was extremely workable. My only complaint would...
  13. Shaker Cherry Wall Cabinet

    This is a Shaker wall cabinet built out of Cherry from the December 2005 issue of Fine Woodworking by Matthew Teague. I've wanted to build this project for a while given some of the new joinery in it like sliding dovetails, bridle joints and through dovetails. Those parts were pretty...
  14. Joinery
    I'm repairing a spindle back chair with a bentwood outer rail. The spindles are ok, but when the chair failed, the tenons on the bottoms of the bentwood rail that fit into mortises (drilled holes) in the chair seat were both broken off. While there might be better ways to make the repair, I've...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi All, I have been looking around at different woodworking machinery lately. It appears some brands of machinery are very similar looking, but with different names on them. I live in New Zealand, so the brands that we see are different to those often discussed here on LJ's (mostly US stuff)...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    Ok, stupid question. What is lacquer stain and how is it different than regular oil-based stain? Does it mean that you don't need a poly topcoat after applying the lacquer stain?
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I been developing a good bit of burn on my stock here lately after ripping them with my Hitachi C10FL 10" Stationary Table Saw. After adjusting the blade back true to the table top I went to get my fence in specs as well. After a long period of time, quite a few choice words, and possibly one...
  18. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hi, this is my first post here, I am excited to be a part of the community! I am making a coffee table from a dry, flat, 45" diameter maple cookie (the long axis is about 55"). It's 2" thick and about 80 lbs if I had to guess. This is my first large scale woodworking project (I have mostly...
  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hi, I'm starting to build a dining table along the lines of Nakashima'a Frenchman's Cove design, like this . I say along the lines, but actually I mean a blatant copy :-) My problem is the joints between the legs and feet. I presume these are bridle joints, but I've bever cut one before so...
