  1. Side Table - Reclaimed Porch Post

    The wife wanted a small side table, that would match my great grandmothers table. She found the end of an old porch column, and asked if I could figure something out. We tried to keep the worn and weathered paint look of the column, so I weathered the rest of it too.
  2. DVD Tower

    This is an extremely time consuming variation of a dvd storage rack.
  3. Great Bookcase

    This a bookcase made of solid Walnut and Walnut veneer. Custom was the understatement here. The client has great taste and wanted something unique for their great room. When we first saw the drawings we did not know how we were going to make the solid dome in the top section. We have done many...
  4. Screened Porch Duplication

    I have been working on this project off and on all summer. A contractor friend of mine was unable to do the job so he introduced me to the home owner. This house was built in 1923 and the home owner wanted me to reproduce the archways and pillars because the originals were rotten and falling...
  5. Veneering a column, restoration of an english regency rosewood center table.

    We received a restoration at the workshop, Antique Refinishers, San Diego, and the column had been re-veneered with contact cement and the wrong wood. As it was a neat project and it is the second time we are veneering columns (see my post on our Biedermeier table project) in the last 2...
  6. The Whole Tree Rocker

    Building this rocker was a pleasure, lots of bandsaw work, and lots of wood. Extra heavy.
  7. The quintessential cover-up

    While doing an extension to a upstairs room in my previous house here in Sweden a few years ago, I had mis-measured the framing for the even alignment of the walls and was a tad bit off. As I had always wanted to build a classical (or neo-) styled column I thought this was a good opportunity...
  8. THE TWISTED SISTERS

    I was given the opportunity to bid on the fabrication of two BIG variable pitch columns that were to be 13.35" dia X 96" high. The architectural firm that asked for the quote told me that they had found only two other wood turners in the United States that could (or would!) fabricate a varied...
  9. Tripod Table

    Tripod table. Made from Mahogany, finished with shellac and wax. See more work at my website and my blog.
  10. Column Hideaway

    This is a column i built when i did my kitchen about 12 years ago. It has a hard to detect flush door on the end with a touchlatch. The whole inside is hollow and lined with adjustable shelves. Mostly it collects a lot of junk that wont fit in my junk drawers. Luckily, i did all the fluting on...
  11. Front post

    I built this front porch post to replace one that was rotted out at the bottom. I used four pieces of pine that I mitered and biscuit joined together after using my router to create the grooves. To help insure that this post would not rot out, I vented it. The second picture is of the vented top...
  12. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hi everyone, I am going to attempt my first mantel/fireplace surround soon and want to have solid columns up the sides. I want to attach these with blind French cleats. I am stumped as to how to cut out the notches while keeping the angle consistent. I have thought about drilling and chiseling...
  13. Joinery
    Hello all, I was asked to do some column wraps for a barndominium type residence that has 4" steel porch columns all the way around the house. I'm more of a furniture guy and want to make sure I do it right. They want 2×10 rough cedar to wrap the steel columns. My question is, would mitering...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi, all - I've got an issue right now that's driving me nuts. I cannot for the life of me properly adjust the fence (or what the manufacturer calls the "stop" for my miter saw. The saw is a Bosch 4212L. Here's a pic of the part in question (p/n 26): It's held down to the saw by 4 bolts. When...

    I've decided to try reproducing this table. It's mostly made with veneered MDF and uses 4" PVC columns wrapped in veneer as the supports. I've never used PVC with wood veneer before, and can't find too many resources here or anywhere else online as to how to glue the veneer to the PVC. The...

    Woodtreks video on Hide glue, featuring W Patrick Edwards I really like those 3 videos Christopher Schwartz came to do at the workshop a while ago. They are pretty good in my opinion let me know what you think! Hide (& Animal Protein) Glues: Background, Selection and How to Prepare Hammer...

    I recently finished building Matthias Wandel's 16" bandsaw. I've been using it some with an underpowered washing machine motor, and I'm ready to put a better motor on. But I don't want to spend $150+ on a motor. Can anyone point me to a motor for less money? Needs to be AT LEAST 1/2 hp…more if...
  18. Jigs & Fixtures
    Hi all! I have been contemplating this custom boring machine for some years now, and the time has come to get serious. I am really looking to make this a community project and would really appreciate your thoughts and continued help in designing this tool. The amount of brain power on this...
