  1. Combination cutting board/chess board in case you want to knight your filet

  2. DIY Detail Scraper from Utility Knife Blade

    Hello, guys! Here is a video instruction (2min) how to make it: The blades can be used as is or you can use the used blades by dulling them more and turning the burr on them. The steel is soft enough for turning the burr just like you would do on the card scraper. I saw this idea in the Fine...

  7. Elm, walnut & sassafras butter dish

    While making my shop stool I cut off a couple corners. Those pieces had some real nice patterns to the spalting and grain, and I decided that one of them would make a nice butter dish.

  8. Card Scraper Holder

    Finally banged one out in a day :-) I took some scrap ply, marked out my kerf lines on 1/2" centers, and ran 'em through with the radial arm saw (neat !). Then, I did an inlay of Wenge, or something, at the front and at the back. Then … I used my dado router jig, and carved out about 1/3" of...
