  1. Getting ready for another Wisconsin winter...

    I've been putting a lot of thought into how to heat my shop the last couple of years. Previously I've used a kerosene salamander (torpedo) heater. However, there were three things I really did not like about this system, the smell, the noise and the open flame. I spent a lot of time researching...
  2. Basement Sewing Area with a Cold Bar

    I did this for the same client as the entertainment center / bookshelves and did it at the same time. It was a really big project for me and they are very happy with the end product. It is made of Birch plywood and poplar solid wood. The countertop is just a standard square edge laminate piece...
  3. Maple Jewelry Box

    My first small box construction. I wanted to try it without any plans and just wing it. This poses some interesting developments and it's own set of problems to overcome. A lot of fun figuring them out but I think I prefer using a set of plans and customizing it from there. That'll be next...
  4. JEWELRY BOX

    This is a jewelry box I made for a client. The box is made of walnut and cherry. I went a little "crazy" with the top and added some gum. The two trays are also cherry and walnut. I just noticed that the circles i drilled in the top tray are not centered. Dang it!

  5. Introduction & Project: Walnut and Ebony Keepsake Wedding Box

    I've been a long time lurker and learner on LJ and figured it was time to start contributing. I'm an engineer by training and profession, and general tinkerer by nature. My background to wood working comes from many fronts from construction grade builds (cabinets, decks, barns, etc.), antique...
  6. Japanese lamp

    I had a few leftover scraps of decorative polycarbonate wall panels which were used for a bath enclosure. Combined with some scrap oak from a previous project, I combined them into a Japanese lamp design that I had seen from previous posts on Lumberjocks. Only thing I had to purchase was rice...
  7. Peppermills

    Here are some of the peppermills that I have produced. Some of these have already found loving homes. I have some pictures posted behind my lathe and look at them when I start but I really don't have a clue what the finished product will be until it is finished. The 2nd pic in is a prime...
  8. A carving of the famous picture, Grace

    I purchased a print of this picture, & one day I decided to do a relief carving of it. I carved it using Red Oak, & the overall dimensions of it including the frame are 11 1/2" X 15 1/2". I finished it with Watco Danish Oil . It's also one of our favorite carvings, & it hangs near our kitchen...
  9. Sliding Chairs

    This is a project that I saw on a TV woodworking show and thought - hey, I can make one of those. This chair is made of cypress and finished with a light stain.

  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey Everyone, Right now it get fairly cold in my region, and with very little heat in my shop, my current air hoses are not nice and flexible. I believe I have PVC. What air hose material stays the most pliable in cold temperatures? What type do you use, and why? Thank you in advance for...
  12. Focus on the Workspace
    Hey All, Winter will be here before we know it and I unfortunately live in Ohio where it can get rather cold. I been looking online for a heater to get my garage at a comfortable working temperature when it gets into the single digits outside. I have a 2 car garage with insulated walls but a...
  13. Focus on the Workspace
    Well, I think it would not happen here in sunny Arizona, but I did not work in the shop this morning because it was too cold. Normally I don't work when it is above 105 degrees in the shop during the summer, but today, it was a cold 22 degrees (17 with windchill) when I went outside to go to...
  14. Focus on the Workspace
    Ok, unheated garage is just too cold to work in this week. Moving ops to the basement with very limited suite of tools (yes, I'm a power tool guy).
  15. Finishing
    I've made a small side table for my mother in law and we're driving about 8 hours to her place for a Christmas. The finish will be dry for a day or two before we leave but won't be fully cured and it will be below freezing for the drive. Anyone have any experience with this? Will the cold...
  16. Focus on the Workspace
    I took a few months off as I acquired some new tools including a used 220v delta unisaw, dust collection system, and a few other things. Now that I have my shop layout situated, I am running into a much different issue. Heat and humidity. I living in the Raleigh NC area and it gets kind of warm...

    Design ideas, need some feedback OK, so yeah - another blog about a router table, but since I'm going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I've had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2...

    The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can Well first I must thank Todd A. Clipper for the new title. After reading his comments I just could not resist using the suggested title for my blog. Along with the new title I will do my best to try to do things like record temperature differences between...
