  1. Fluid Time

    Time as they say is fluid. You can't stop it or control it, all you can do is measure it and try not to let it get away from you. When Martin proposed the challenge to "create a project that portrays fluidity and/or movement" I didn't want to just portray it, I wanted to have actual fluid...
  2. Woods I Project- challenge-14

    This is not my project, it is one of my students, Gerrit. My Woods I class had the task to make abstract art after learning how to use machines and square up a board. I thought his project would make a good example of balance for this contest. Especially since there is not much abstract art in...

  4. Santa's Workshop - Tea Box Puzzle

    Happy New Year Everyone, My Granny first introduced me into puzzles, ...most likely in an attempt to get me to sit still for more than 5 minutes, haha. Though she is no longer on this plane of existance I have chose to remember and honour her with a 10 design series of puzzle boxes that use...
  5. ladder/chair

    This is from an old magazine. Made of cherry. Each project step was a challenge. I made a plywood template for the leg patterns, roughed them out and then gang sanded them so they match. For the two rear leg assemblies a little rail is required, which is angled differently on each end. The...
  6. Imitation Cedar 2x4 Challenge Shoe Bench

    My last time trying to do real woodworking with construction lumber in a long while. Entry for the current Reddit woodworking 2×4 challenge. Huge exercise in frustration trying to make the wood do stuff it just didn't want to, but the end result is sturdy enough for 250 pounds on top and for...
  7. Precision Rule Sheath

    I wanted more protection for my rules than the paper envelopes they came with. I had some scrap mahogany strips from ripping some table legs. I ripped the maple strips from some 1/8th stock bought at Rockler. The "tenon caps" were done with the table saw and auxiliary fence. I got lucky with a...
  8. Angled Coin Display

    My first project using my table saw. The board is angled at 30 degrees and the coin slots were made at 45 degrees. It can hold roughly 20-25 standard challenge coins and some bigger coins if needed. Item was given to a retired Gunnery Sergeant as a token of appreciation for being a amazing mentor.
  9. Autumn Rush

    I certainly am grateful for that cool fall day long ago as a 16 year old when my Dad first showed me a bit of woodworking in our basement. He didn't hardly have much but a milk crate of tools and yet there was this pile of raw lumber that was somehow magically transfixed into a beautiful corner...
  10. Take THAT, Stevinmarin!!! :D (WSBB entry)

    I am going to dedicate this project to Stevemarin. In his recent project, he kind of challenged me to make a band saw type box that was smaller than his "World's Smallest" box. (ha!) As a matter of fact, in honor of his 'inspiration' I am going to call this box "The Steve." Look closely in...
  11. Early 1960's Ford Thames Trader Recovery Vehicle - Tow Truck

    Early 1960's Ford Thames Trader Recovery Vehicle - Tow Truck… Firstly let me say a HUGE AUSSIE THANK YOU to Ralph who has inspired this build with his Tow Trucks https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/409046 It was through his generosity of sharing his "how I built it photos" that I found a...
  12. Challenge Coin Display

    I was asked by a retired Navy Commander to make two Challenge Coin Displays for his coin collection. The display is made from solid walnut and is finished with clear lacquer. Each measures 4.25" x 18" and holds 50 coins.
  13. Stubby Awl Challenge

    I'm hosting a challenge where I've asked people to make their own awls, send me a picture and I'll send then an awl that I made (I'm giving away about 100 of them). To make it easier, I showed a couple ways to make an awl using a 6D nail. I made the promise that if you use exotic woods and...
  14. The “Checker Madness” Awl

    This awl is part of my #100AwlGiveAway contest that I started a few weeks ago. I paired walnut, cherry and redheart with a 6D nail. Both the cherry and walnut were cut into 1/8th inch strips, glued together, sliced again and then glued front to back to create a checkerboard pattern. This is...
  15. My Thorsen Table interpretation

    Ok, so I have spent the last few weeks working on my interpretation of the Thorsen Table. It does not compare to all of the wonderful works I have seen on here lately. I am almost embarrassed to show it, let alone call it a Thorsen Table. But, here it is at last. My take on the Thorsen Table...
  16. Thorsen Side Table Challenge- I had to...challenge01

    Between the moving into the new shop, having to do all the business cr^p, get all the utilities hooked up, work on the Church cabinets, get all the tools in a semi-respectable place, my router died, so I had to order a new one which arrived yesterday and broke as soon as I took it out of the...
  17. Green and Green Thorsen Table Challenge

    I never thought I'd get it done, but luckily I was able to finish on time. Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and support. I made this project slightly different by taking Green and Green's Asian influence and making it literal using Japanese symbols, one wheat symbol (for life) and...
  18. Plow horse relief carving

    This is my first relief carving. I was inspired by the power and motion of a drawing in an old art book. The carving itself is about 3" x 7" and is in a scrap of red alder. I apologize for the quality of the photography. I have been trying to improve the photos of all of my projects. This...
  19. Saw Vise

    This is a saw vise based on the Lie Nielsen Saw Vise shown here. I made it from Poplar from Home Depot, as it was cheaper than plywood in the same size. It consists of two 24"x12"x3/4" panels and four 24"x1-3/4"x1/2" strips, two at the top and two at the bottom. I didn't see any need for the...
  20. Shadowbox 2

    Shadow box I made for a retiring USMC Major. It's a walnut frame with a maple bottom. And installed led lights for better match for his bar. Last I made an oak leaf to fit in the bottom to break up the coins a bit.
