  1. Barnwood Island Top

    Built an island top for a customer. She contacted me after I posted a picture of a truckload of circular sawn oak from a barn that was been turn down. The boards were originally about 8 inches wide. I ripped the boards in half because they had a cup in them. I did this to minimize the effect of...
  2. Walnut cheese and cracker board

    Absolutely love this cheese and cracker board! This is being donated to the saint Martha fair on Nov 17 and 18 with the wine caddy that I previously posted. The only thing is the walnut is an expensive wood to work with. Made from solid walnut with hard maple accent stripes and small circle...
  3. Cylinder - 1/8 inch wall with wooden hinge.

    This is actually my first experimental cylinder box… (much better to call it cylinder). My second one earlier done and posted. I used skewers on that second one. I do like the first one because this was the original plan. To make the wall of the cylinder, I have to glue strips of wood 1/2...
  4. Some picture frames

    Had some extra purpleheart and bloodwood laying around so punched out some frames for uniquely shaped pieces of art. The circular frames are made of the bloodwood with ebony accents. The purpleheart frame is reinforced with mitered splines.
  5. Sliding Carriage Panel Saw

    Being fairly new to woodworking I was told that I should start off small. After building a couple wall sconces for the wife I decided that doing the smaller sized projects were certainly fun, but I wanted to go bigger…to me it was time to start building furniture. I didn't have a power jointer...
  6. Rolling Clamp Rack

    Clamp Rack made of Aspen with a white pine base. All joinery done by hand. Cross members are dovetailed and the A-frame is done with mortise and tenon.
  7. Red Oak Mobile Workbench

    This is my mobile workbench i made last year. Most of the materials came from scrap lumber from machine crates. It didn't cost an arm and a leg, just a little portion of my finger. Actually, 25% of my right thumb. I made the bench to my height. This means there is no bending over to work off of...
  8. Circular saw straight cut jig

    Hey Guys, This isn't my original idea, I seen it in a FWW mag or something along the way. I do not own a table saw yet so ripping sheet goods was quite challenging with my circular saw. This is the result. I bought two 3/4" x 15" wide panels of MDF at HD for $3.99 each. The only other...
  9. Dining Table Scale Model

    This is actually a 1/4 scale model of what will soon be a dining table made of wood, steel, glass and a Calcite ball. The client had approved an initial idea sketch, so this was my next step. I was having trouble visualizing what I was going to do and there was a lot of material involved, so I...
  10. Table that motion

    A few days ago, an elderly neighbor approached me in my garage shop, and asked if i knew where he could get pre-turned legs for a small table he wanted to build. I mentioned he might find some turned spindles at "CasaDePot", but he replied that he used to buy legs with bolts set in them, ready...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I came across this method of skidding a circular saw a few years back and have used a 50" and a 98" jig since then for knocking down sheet stock without too much trouble. One day I was faced with a nasty cut on an angle that had to be relatively accurate and I decided to use this slider again...

  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Greetings and salutations Lumberjocks! The greatest neighbor in the world just completed the construction of his shop, and had some redundancy of tools. He gave me his beautiful Craftsman radial arm saw, the aftermarket rolling base with drawers, and both drawers full of goodies and accessories...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Today I was in the Blue Box. I noticed Dewalt 24 tooth carbide blades priced at $9+. What looked to be the same thing in Skil was $5+. Is there any reason to chose one over the other? Dewalt worth nearly 2x?
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have the SkilSaw 5150 10Amp Circular saw.. I just acquired the rip guide attachment… at first I thought it's function was something else but I realized what's it's purpose was… and noticed my SkilSaw had slots/screw hole for such a guide. I even went online and someone had the same question I...

    Flat Edge from Wonky Boards I have a few pieces of oak that are roughly 3×4" and 5' long. The are well seasoned and have lots of twist and bend in them. I wanted to cut them down and use them as trim in some upcoming projects. My method for doing this was to clamp a straight edge to them and...
