  1. combination lock drawer box with spring mechanism

    well, in the drawer box mechanism I wanted to work with sliding dovetail in order to make less evident the mechanism. First of all I work with equal lumber than side. Then I made a box (sailing box, coming soon in Lj :-) ) where my ploy were put four sliding dovetails (one worked, the other were...
  2. wooden safe with working combo lock

    All the fun things I get to make come from scraps and typically don't have the option of being planned out. This little box is no exception, it was made with the tools I had with me and zero measuring involved. This was made for a proof of concept, but I think I will actually make one now out...
  3. Skull Cage

    Skull Cage Every once in awhile I see an opportunity to lock up something that is unusual and this Skull shaped vodka bottle seemed to be just the right thing. The vodka (if you haven't seen it) is special in that it was tripple filtered through crushed quartz crystals, and the glass bottle...
  4. Barn Beam Bench

    I have some barn beams and I bought a metal bender from Harbor Freight in the fall and I wanted to try something different. The bean itself comes from a barn built in the 1800's near Branchport, NY. It still has the original metal hardware embedded in it. I cleaned up the beam and put a wenge...
  5. Radiator Cover

    Our house has radiant heat from big cast-iron hot-water radiators. The heating is lovely, but they're kinda ugly. I built this cover for the radiator in our dining room, to give us a little sideboard. Body is ash, top is ash, walnut and mahogony. The whole thing is finished with several...
  6. Wooden Toy Safe

    I built these wooden toy safes as Christmas presents for the nieces and nephews. I was planning to paint them bold primary colors (red, green, yellow, blue, etc) but my bride asked me to leave the MDF naked because of the interesting contrast. The outside and all the parts are sealed with 2-3...
  7. Bookcase/TV stand

    So we moved into a new home that has a bar in the basement complete with an entertainment area. Lots of boxes filled with books and nowhere to put the TV. So the solution was to create a TV stand in the corner with a bookcase on both sides. Simple construction, 3 - 4'X4' sheets of 3/4" plywood...
  8. wooden safe

    So this is a safe that I made for a welder at my collage. It measures 11"x8"x6 3/4" with all wood hinges and bradd rod pivot. This was made after the welding instructor gave me some oak boards and teak, all about 2" thick and 6"wide. All that he wanted in return was some locks for his grandkids...

  10. Shadow Box

    In my retirement I decided to join the fire department. What red blooded young man never wanted to be a fireman? Anyhow, our assistand chief recently transferred and I was asked to build a memento shadow box. Once again I've never done that so felt completely qualified to complete the task...
  11. Dusting brush handle upgrade

    My "workbench" sits on top of a freezer (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/37979 ). The freezer metal body allows to me to "hang" all kinds of tools and accessories there from measuring tape to plane hammer to engineer's square, using magnets as long as they have a metal part. The dusting brush I...

    This I turned at JockMike2's shop last month. It is made from elm and is almost 7 inches high and just under 3 inches in diameter. The finish it Watco black walnut with a few coats of spar varnish on it. I absolutely love this one. Thanks Mike for showing me the way.

    I brand new here and I am very confused on posting but I read the request for a design for a bed, desk chair design for orphanges and so far this was the only way I could figure out how to post this1
  16. Wine holder, glass holder, cheese and craker cutting board combination

    I came up with this idea for a local wine store that sells wine related crafts. It is kind of a serving tray that holds the wine, glasses and has a cutting board for slicing cheese or whatever. it is all mortised together for strength. It is made out of scrap mahogany that I had from an old...
  17. Twenty Five Feet of a "Kinda" Fence

    My LJ brother and I were again busy putting together a fence that we thought would be fairly simple. When our old friend began explaining the look of the old fence we then needed a picture. The old fence was removed because of extensive termite damage. After seeing a picture of the old fence...

    I saw this machine for sale in Philadelphia and was wondering if it was a good deal. I'm starting a new shop up and the idea of getting all machines at once appealed to me. Thanks in advance. http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/tls/1566109866.html
  19. Marketplace Classifieds
    Hello everyone on lumberjocks. I'd like to plow simple grooves for drawer bottoms, but I don't want to use an electric router. I like using hand tools. I have a Stanley 45, but for some reason it is not great for this task. I'd like to know if anyone would like to trade me for a record 43 plow...

    Does anyone have any experience with or know of anyone who has had experience with either the Jet or Grizzly Jointer /Planer combo machines? I plan on purchasing a jointer and / or a planer in 2008 and was hoping someone has had some experience with these machines. I cannot afford the $4,000+...
