  1. Projects More Tool Totes

    I made tool totes for my in-laws this year. As usual I started late, so only two got made for Christmas day. This is number three for the one that missed out on the day. A bit more elaborate since I was not chasing the clock. All the timber is recycled pine. Some is very old, some not so...
  2. Projects Many Christmas giveaways

    I have been busy making LOTS of giveaways - some for our Christmas parties, and some as gifts for friends. First I made 12 napkin boxes (Mahogany); 12 tissue covers (Poplar then stained) and about 50 of the little tea candle holders. A few small boxes for some of the grandkids. Also made some...
  3. Projects Wooden carving Grome

    This year, I came across a Christmas Grome in Woodcarving Illustrated and decided to make one for my wife, my niece, and my grandchildren. Last week, I finished the third version of this carving, and am happy with it. Hope you are making something for your family. Just recognize that any...

  5. Little Trucks for under the Christmas Tree

    Little Trucks for under the Christmas Tree… They'll be filled with a small load of lollies [candies] for the grandsons [approx 4" x 4" x 1"]. I laminated a piece of Red Gum between 2 pieces of Spotted Gum to create the body. Four of the trays are Tassie Oak with Blackheart Sassafras sides...
  6. Recipe Stands

    I batched up a set of six recipe stands to match the cutting boards I gave as Christmas presents last year. They started as a glue-up of maple and walnut with some sapwood. As with the cutting boards, I alternated the walnut boards in the glue-up to maximize the contrast between adjacent boards...

  8. Holiday Gifts You Can Make

    Every year I make a few handmade gifts for family, and every year I try to come up with new and exciting ideas. Not always easy! - The first year I tried to keep them very basic; things that can be made fairly quickly and easily (watch the 2019 holiday gifts here) - The second year I went with...
  9. Trivets

    I was gathering up some of the smaller pieces of wood to make room for some wood I just purchased when I remembered I need to go ahead and get started making up some of these. These decorative trivets are one of the most requested items for Christmas I have ever made. People like to get them...
  10. The Original Woodwork Gateway Drug

    I'm pretty sure the humble cutting board project is responsible for fostering interest in woodworking more than any other other project. I say humble, but to be perfectly frank, some of the work people have done on this site are works of art and engineering marvels. Nothing humble about them...
  11. Wood Whisperer Pencil Holders

    Not much time to start any big projects over the Holidays so I thought I would dig thru the shorts box and try some of those pencil holders Spagnolo was showing how to build last month. I thought using tape to assemble instead of clamps was a neat idea that worked better than expected...
  12. Two Cutting Boards for Christmas

    I made these cutting boards for Christmas gifts this year. They represent a couple of design variations. The board with the knife and apple is the largest board I've ever made measuring 16 1/2" x 11 1/2" x 1 1/2". I make all of my boards 1 1/2" thick now. I feel that it gives the boards a more...

  14. Table Saw Snowflakes Christmas Gifts

    My first batch of table saw snowflakes. I love the way they turned out. Great gifts for everyone. In the matter of a few hours I turned out about 20 of each from start to finish. Thank you for the project idea Steve Ramsey!
  15. Beer Tote Christmas Gifts

    I made three of these for Christmas Gifts for some friends, I am very pleased with how they turned out. The totes were easy enough but trying to gather everyones favorite beer bottle to cut into glasses was a long process. I needed to have a few drinks of my own to help them along :) If you...
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hello, I've decided that I'd like to make some end grain cutting boards for christmas gifts (using the Wood Whisperer's method) but before I head out to the wood store, I have two questions. Before I ask them, I must confess that I am fairly new at working with hardwoods. 1. In his videos...

  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hey all, I'm bidding on a restoration that has clear and white lacquer (according to the client). My questions are; 1) What would you recommend to strip the old lacquer? Any special post removal cleanup required? 2) What type of Lacquer should I look for in clear and white and where can I...

    Lidded Box Practice I have made Christmas gifts in my woodshop the past two years. This year I intend to turn gifts on my small lathe which itself was a gift from my neighbor James Warner. His wife Susan told me that he would have wanted me to have it. So I will be turning small bowls and small...
