  1. Designing the Dragon Pull Toy

    A number a LumberJocks sent me emails asking how I designed the dragon pull toy. For my articulated projects, I always sketch in CAD (because I don't have a pencil) and then animate the design to check the relationship of parts and the clearances. It's no fun looking at static pictures, so I...

  3. Pine Entertainment Center

    Last year I got tired of having my plasma sitting precariously on a stool and my A/V equipment stacked on the floor. This was my own design built from clear pine from Home Depot. I built this using only a circular saw, a router, a hand saw, and a few sanders, and I built it (unwisely) on the...
  4. Spalted butternut bowl

    This is a butternut bowl aka white walnut I turned from a piece of wood given to me by a co-worker. It was my first time turning this type of wood and it was very hard to get a clean cut on the end grain.

  7. Project #2 - Twin Bed for my Son

    This was my second Woodworking project with the tools I inherited from my Grandfather. It was made out of Pine, stained with three coats of Satin Poly. I spent about 20 hours building this one, but a lot of that time was spent sanding. My next project will definitely start with better wood...

  13. Pinewood Derby Trophies!

    I am the Cubmaster for a Cubscout Pack in northeast Georgia. When it came time to deliver some trophies to our kids' pinewood derby racing champs, I knew plastic tokens weren't going to cut it! This project wasn't complicated, and I used scrap wood to build them. The smaller "Den" trophies are...

    Hey everyone, I'm in the design and planning stage of making a 10' long miter / RAS bench for my workshop. I need some help with the majority of the design. I have two options, one is nicer, but more expensive, the other saves money, gets the job done, but leaves my drawer slides underneath...
  16. CNC Woodworking
    I'm interested in eventually getting a CNC. Likely a year away due to other projects/finances. I do woodworking professionally so this would be used in a low production environment. I've been trying out sketchup lately in order to be able to do some 3D modelling, but as I see myself going...

  18. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am wondering if anyone has heard of any CAD programs that are designed specifically for woodworking? I know there are a few programs out there for designing raised panel doors, or other specific applications, but I am looking for something that could be used to draw up any woodworking project...
  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am in the process of looking for a space to build in my new workshop. So most of my ideas I always CAD them in detail and fit them in the space. If it works in the 3D CAD design it will work in reality too, so it's like a safe factor for me. Here's what I came up with for plywood and MDF...
