  2. challenge 09, TREE

    Pruned our trees last Nov. The branches have been laying in a pile , corner of yard. Waiting for SOMEONE (Me ) to haul them away. Last Dec my wife wanted decorations for front step. I was in shop sharpening my old tennon cutters, I went to my pile and started cutting. Then I started drilling...
  3. Business card and Brochure Holder

    Well this all started out as a Blackberry holder for my desk, after making the larger fixture I thought it was a bit too big for a phone so now it is a brochure holder lol. I had some more scrap left from the original scrap I had started with (last picture) so I decided to make a business card...
  4. Bar for Mama's Deck

    Hey everyone, This is my latest project. I was told by mama that this was to be done before pool season. It is a bar that i''m sure i will be the one tending when she needs a fruity drink by the pool.(yeah ruff life she's got huh.) Any way i got to get in the shop for a couple days guilt free...
  5. because my wife says so

    Bear season just opened here in bc and my wife says "you cant leave the house without a huge knife" what if your attacked. at this point my mind started working over drive. I remembered that I had began to make a bowie style knife a few years back and it had gathered some hefty dust. at the same...
  6. 2 x 4 jam chuck

    Nothing new, but the glue. I started with 12 scraps 2 x 4 x 7 & 1/2", and 1 2×2 x 10". The 2×2 gives me a good way to mark center, and a hold for initial turning. Using the 2×2 as the center, I made 5 glue ups, joining the pieces pieces on the sides. The 5 are glued into 1 piece, keeping...
  7. Broom stems or mop handles

    I have long been fed up with these broom stem breakages , so I decided to make one unbreakable mop stick by myself. I have a lot of wood and veneer scraps to choose from. More pictures from making process can be seen on my blog: WoodWorker blog
  8. Nothing New But The Glue Project Challenge09

    Nothing New Except The Glue Well here is my entry into this challenge. It really isn't a difficult wood working project but it does use OLD stuff. The second photo shows the primary materials used to make the picture frame. First the wood. It is definitely less than 1 bdft. It also has an...

  10. Barn Wood Frame

    Another present for my wife. A simple frame for an old tin plate ceiling tile from the Empress Hotel in MooseJaw Sask. The hotel burned down a while ago and the tiles were saved. Apparently Al Capone or his cronies used to hang out here in the prohibition days. The fire did two things I...
  11. A trio of hickory mallets made from leftover drawer fronts

    This is my entry for the Nothing New Except the Glue contest. When my parents had new hickory cabinets put in their kitchen recently, two of the drawers were the wrong size and had to be rebuilt; the cabinet shop just left the wrong ones there instead of taking them back. My parents kept the...
  12. Doll Furniture for Nothing New Except The Glue

    Here is my entry for Nothing New Except The Glue. I used a scrap 1/8×15 x 9.5 inch piece of plywood and an old pallet board to make some furniture fit for a Barbie Doll. I got the design ideas from some old furniture pictures and drew them up to fit a 12-inch fashion doll. The dresser and the...
  13. Segmented Bowl from Leftovers

    You can't see the bowl in the first picture? Check out the other pictures. This is my third such bowl. A great way to use leftover (or miscut) pieces of nice woods. This one has six different woods. The leftovers were glued up into a roughly 12" square. This was cut in half. Concentric...
  14. Father/Daughter Box

    This is a box my daughter and I made together over the weekend. She read the "Nothing New But the Glue" contest rules and got excited, so we built this. The top is made from an old hand plow handle my father-in-law gave me as a template when I recently made some new handles for him. (FYI, it's...

  16. Recycling Redwood

    I was searching for lumber to use for a new garden project this spring when I ran across a local manufacturer's dumpster. This business produces large amounts of redwood scrap. After making a couple of raised beds, to see how it would work out, I read the notice about the Gorilla Glue...
  17. Bloodwood and Maple Ring

    So, here's my entry for the "Nothing New But the Glue" challenge. I've turned a wood ring before, but this was the first time I tried the inlay. Starting with a piece of Bloodwood I had, I drilled a 1" plug out of it as a blank and attached it to a face plate to turn. After getting the shape...
  18. Box From An Old Log

    Here is my entry for the Gorilla Glue contest. I don't take credit for this idea because I have seen it many times. I spent a lot of time trying to come up with something to make out of old materials. Finally one day I was in y backyard and found an old log, then the idea came to me. The log was...
  19. Wine and Cheese Checker Set

    Nothing New but the Glue challenge09 entry. Here is my entry for the contest. In the last pic you can see the 8 pieces of pallet wood that I started with. 4 Walnut and 4 Birch (I think) Also the corkscrew, cork and knife. (Forgot to take pic of the wine glasses before I cut the stem off. Sorry)...
  20. Cubismo

    We were up at the museums of art in NY once and thought….man if this blue canvas is art then we can do it too. This thought really sunk in when we saw the white canvas!....that is it…some guy put his name on a white canvas and he got to be in a museum. Go figure! Anyway and all dreams of...
