  1. Antiqued Poker Sign

    This is a Poker sign I made for my uncle-in-law's poker house. On Saturday our family gathers there to visit and play poker. It's a real fun time for adults and kids alike and I wanted to make something to say thanks for allowing all of us to come over and eat and enjoy each other's company...
  2. media center with bookshelves

    Had some extra time around the shop, so we decided to build this. Its made out of poplar and mdf and finished it with some dunn edwards paint. The top is walnut and finished with polyurethane. Not really my style of cabinet but I think someone will like it. Thanks for looking!!!
  3. English Style Workbench - The Nicholson

    This is an English Style Workbench I just completed. I followed the plans in Christopher Schwarz's book Workbenches from Design & Theory to Construction & Use. I made a website which shows the construction steps I went through while building the bench. Just follow the link here: . My English...
  4. Walnut and Purpleheart Coffee Table

    The top is made of five 6" walnut boards with 8/4 bread boards. The profile on the breadboards were cut by a raised panel bit up top and a monster 3" diameter round-over bit on the bottom. The legs are tapered and mortised flush with the top. The hope was to have the leg top to sit a bit proud...
  5. Fix it or trash it?

    I learned a lesson this week. It takes no longer to work with good wood than it does to work with flawed wood. I had a piece of what I thought was nice walnut. After assembly and during sanding I realized it was brittle. There are several spots where the wood chipped out while being sanded...
  6. Dust Collection System

    I just moved to a new location and am setting up my shop in a detached garage. I converted my HF dust collector to a 2-stage unit using the Oneida Super Dust Deputy. I used 4" PVC along one wall with 5 drops and a total of 10 connections using a double wye branch. The PVC is mounted to the...
  7. Poker Chips and Card Box

    Going Away/Pre-Retirement gift requested at work for one of our guys who after 19 years is transferring within our organization to finish his final year before retirement. He goes to Las Vegas every year with his family on vacation, thus the poker chip and card box idea came about. The box is...
  8. Chip Clips!

    My wife said I was on kitchen cleanup duty tonight, fair enough since she cooked. As I went to put the chips away I realized that we didn't have any more chip clips, so I thought about the neatly patterned Ambrosia Maple scraps in the scrap bin. 15 minutes later, two more chip clips and much...
  9. My Son's workbench

    This is one of my first projects. I found the plans on the Skil website. I added a few of my own touches, like the sign on the top shelf. If you are interested in making the work bench, the plans are at http://www.skiltools.com/en/UseYourSkil/HowTo/ My four year old now has a better work...

  11. 100% Impractical WW2 Poker Chip Case

    So a few buddies and I started a poker game once a month so obviously I needed to get some good poker chips, right? But what fun is it buying an off the shelf chip case, when I have this lonely woodworking shop just sitting there waiting for me! I did some research and found some really nice...
  12. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Throughout the year, we have many pine cones that need to be removed, before we can mow the lawn. Rather than rake them, and if I get to them right after they fall, a shop vac can make short work of them. However, if they sit, they start to open and their increased size clogs the vac quickly...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a Powermatic 54A 6" joiner and I installed a Byrd spiral cutter head on it. The head runs & cuts fine but I have noticed a significant change in chip collection for the worse. I have a 1.5 JDS 4 inch vac hooked up to it with nothing else but the joiner on it. Chips come out of the back of...
  14. Blogs
    Introduction to where I am & what I'm doing Just got engaged a few months ago and promised my bride-to-be a hand-made captain's bed (you know, drawers underneath the mattress platform) with corner posts and a canopy with a mirror. Found out they don't use glass, but it's still reflective - so...
  15. Finishing
    Hey everyone, thanks for stopping in. I have a couple of questions… I am in the process of refinishing a pre/post WWII chest of drawers made of mahogany, it's a manufactured piece from Kling if anyone recognizes the name… I believe out of Michigan… Like a lot of other furniture. I salvaged...
