  1. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    I got myself in quite a predicament business wise. This is my second year and business and things have been going really well, happy customers, no call backs, fun projects. However, this last week I took quite the hit to my confidence and schedule. I had two projects that had major setbacks. One...
  2. Wood Veneer Business Cards With My Bandsaw

    Wanted to try cutting my own veneers to print my business cards on. They aren't exact size but I'm happy with the outcome. I leave a natural edge when I print on cedar and of course they smell great. Softer woods work extremely well, hardwoods brake apart.
  3. Business Card Holders

    Some of my students in my Woods I class decided to make business card holders as a community service project. Simple design and build. The sanding and finishing took them the most time. Finished with natural stain and gloss polyurethane. All wood oak and maple donated from Dorchester...
  4. Business Card Holder

    I wanted a business card holder for my desk at work. I had some scrap cherry in the shop that I used to make it. I thought of making this style after seeing JayT's Business card holder and Rance's business card holder. I finished it off with some clear gloss Minwax whip on Poly. It was a...
  5. TV and Hi-Fi Unit

    When we swapped our old CRT TV for a modern slimline version, my wife decided that the old cabinet had to be replaced, by something in oak to match other lounge furniture, and this is the result. I struggled with Sketchup to produce the design, but since watching...

  7. Mushrooms are growing

    My mushroom patch is growing. The one on the left grew from a green cherry log yesterday. The one on the right grew about 4 months ago. Its also cherry, hope one more grows this summer.
  8. TV Stand

    My freind, Sheldon, bought a new TV for the bedroom and wanted a simple stand so he could put the DVD player and cable box under it. It was made with poplar. I used a miter joint at the edges to hide the end grain. A little bit of stain and some polyurethane finish and there you have it...
  9. My Simplicity Clock

    I made this from Clayton Boyer plans. The wheels, pulleys, hands and pendulum bob are made from baltic birch ply. The frame, pendulum rod and clock face are made from poplar. The hour markings are pieces of 1/8" poplar dowels that I sanded flush with the face then stained then glued in place...
  10. The truck fleet

    Henry Ford might of had a faster assembly line, but he had more employees. None the less, I managed to get the trucks built. I opted to go with a clear coat finish and let the wood speak for itself. I still managed to get that worn look just from the wood. Each truck has a personalized...
  11. Business Card Holders

    Have you ever had an idea that seemed excellent in your mind, but not so great when brought to reality. This is one of those. It seemed like a great idea to get rid of some old copper wire I had laying around. I was planning on making a bunch of these, but the wire (even when soldered) is...
  12. Potting Bench

    This was made from recycled tongue and groove cedar planks, even the lattice was made from it as well. The legs started out as 4×4 pressure treated recycled fence posts. They were cut down to 3" square and planed, I added a small block of pvc trim to the feet since I thought it was going to...
  13. Table before restoration

    This is a table that I just restored for a customer. As you can see from the pictures there was a lot of damage to this 70+ year old table. -The table top had tons of woodfiller in all the worm holes and the woodgrain -Between the sheeting underneath the table top there was a lot of mold...
  14. Drill Press Table with shop made t-tracks

    I recently acquired an excellent used Delta 12" drill press from CL for $50. Having looked at many shop made drill press tables here on LJ, I decided to build one. Not having ready access to t-tracks, I made my own using 3/4" x 3/4" x 1/16" angle aluminum from Lowes. The table itself is 10" x...
  15. Pointer Dog Clock

    Original Design by Paula ~ Tupperware Stencil This one made of Walnut. I used to make it out of Pine, along with the Walnut, and call them Black and Yellow Lab dogs. I can't get the pine anymore, so I make them out of Walnut and Oak. Do they make a PURPLE dog?? :)
  16. Business Card Holder

    I finally got around to making a wooden business card holder. I have seen so many different styles out there and came up with this. My wife took one look at it and stole it for herself so I will just have to make the next one even nicer for myself. You can store 26 business cards in it and it...

  19. More Business Card Holders

    I had some extra stock from the last set of business card holders using the copper wire (which didn't work out so well). I used it making four more holders. I used a 1/4 inch dowel this time instead of the wire. The base is a little thinner as well, and without the purpleheart (suggestion...
