  1. One Square Foot Truck, Challenge-15

    Well I took the challenge to make something from 1 board foot of lumber. Since most of my projects are about trucks and equipment I thought that a simple truck of my own design would be appropriate. I started with a block of Poplar that was 12×12x1 after sizing it with a plainer and table saw...
  2. 1-Board Chisel Chisel Rack

    Several months ago, I bought a bunch of old chisels I found on CraigsList. I sharpened them and cleaned them up a little. I have been wanting to make some sort of rack so that these chisels would always be handy when I'm working at my bench. The 1-board challenge was just what I needed to...
  3. 1 Board 1 Project "bench sander" tape dispenser

    I needed a packaging tape dispenser and was all set to make a plain utilitarian one when I ran across the 1 Board 1 Project Spring Challenge, so I got inspired to get a little more creative. I suppose ChuckV's chisel rack got me thinking about relating my dispenser to the shop, and started...
  4. Challenge 15

    Challenge - 15 is a requirement to convert a blank piece of wood (maximum size 12" X 12" X 1") into something of use. The first criteria was a photo of the Project prior to commencement. Fortunately my scrap bin had a small piece of Jetulong that was suitable. The measurements were 8.5" X 7" X...
  5. Six Pack / challenge-15

    I gotta admit, This has been a real challenge. Not only squeezing this project out of a small piece of wood, but coming up with something to build to begin with. Just when I was about to throw in the towel on this one, the idea came to me over a couple of beers. So here it is. 1×4x36 rough cut...
  6. 144 Cubic Inches of Light LJ Challenge #15

    The virtual T-shirt that I was awarded in the last challenge (3D printed out & perfect for our Ken doll) is in the wash yet again- worn, torn and aniline dye stained. The resident Barbies are thrilled at this bare chested development but I find it somewhat unseemly, unsafe in the shop as well -...
  7. 1x12x12 Box Challenge-15

    Yes, another box! I got to thinking… this is really very close to the 2×4x96 build… I have been wanting to build another box anyway… I really liked the others… and I wanted another one… a little bigger this time… Overall: 9" x 11-7/8" x 5" Before Shots: I forgot to take the...
  8. .0234375 Board Foot Challenge.

    OK, first off … Gene wins! However upon looking at the small number entries I thought I should see if I could add to the number a bit, just for fun and in the spirit of participation. This is a study I did recently experimenting with dying and marquetry. I think it fits the spirit of the...
  9. Candle holder, Challenge-15

    Original dimension, 3/4×3 1/2×36 with a nice warp and twist. Glued, ripped in three, stained the middle chunk and reglued. Sprayed w poly, should get a sanding and another coat but seeing as I am out of time, it's what I got. Didn't think I would do this since i was on travel all week, but...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm afraid I'm suffering from a bit of information overload on this subject so thought I might ask a couple of clarifying (hopefully) questions. I was fortunate enough to receive 3 LN planes for Xmas and have been doing a lot of reading on setup, sharpening and use, as you would imagine. I...

  12. Woodworking Skill Share
    Any of you guys tried mechanical pencils? I've been looking for a couple of them that are of good quality and I've found that they're either too expensive or just junk. It seems that the only lead size available around my parts is 0.7mm. I'm sure that most of you know that if you're using the...
