  1. Business card and Smart phone holders from dunnage

    I had some scraps of wood left over and was trying to figure out what do make with them. The wife said she was going to go buy some business card holders for her cards at the craft shows we go to. BINGO!!! I made a few and they worked great…one more thing in the repertoire. We sold some so I...
  2. Business Card Holder

    Part of what I do, outside of LumberJocks.com, is consultant work for a day care in a Native community. Last week, they asked me for some more business cards and I thought it would be nice to have the cards displayed somewhere rather than being stuck in a drawer. My ideas went from a fully...
  3. Business Card Holder - Another Early Project

    I've been admiring all the wonderful business card holders that have been posted recently. So, with some trepidation I post these pictures of a card holder I made over twenty five years ago - I believe it was in my late teens. In those days of youth, I loved going to farm auctions almost every...

    I found the plans for this in one of Wood Magazines jigs,fixtures and storage plans. Works like a charm on anything long and inround. If it's out of round, forget it.

  7. Tea Lights

    After seeing the pictures, I think these things look like Orson Well's war of the worlds machines…LOL !! I find Bob Hamilton to be of great inspiration, in my adventure into wood turning. Both Bob's help articles and his videos on U-tube have been of great help to me. Bob's Tutorials can be...
  8. Jigs & Fixtures
    As I am getting more serious about building jigs for tasks to be accomplished I am confronted with a growing pile of plywood implements that I have to dig through every time I need something. What do you all do to store these (sometimes big) jigs in a small shop? Ideas?

  9. Woodworking Skill Share
    As I embark on my path to making woodworking more of a career and less of a hobby, I got to wondering what exactly makes a good woodworker. Is it the tools? the experience? the knowledge, the skills? is it technique and training? or is it the design skills, the mastery of the aesthetic? Is it...

    A good starting point is a brief overview of my experience as a bench mark to use as a gauge . I have been self employed in the woodworking trade for over twenty years working on and off for other contractors now and again. I don't do lots of large jobs but rather a wide variety of small...

    A while back I placed an ad on Kijiji for my radial arm saw. When I bought it I thought it would make more use of it than I did but one thing leads to another and it ended up having about five or six hours use in 20 years. It just won't fit in my new shop conveniently and with modern tools I...
