  1. Elm spoon

    Had a scrap of elm that came off the edge of a piece I'm making into a stool, and decided it was big enough for a teaspoon. Knocked it out in about an hour and a half. Coping saw, spokeshave, hook knife and slojd, then some sandpaper and food-safe linseed oil.
  2. A Hopeless Romantic's 5th Anniversary Gift

    My 5th year anniversary is on June 2nd, but we decided to celebrate this weekend (memorial day and all). The traditional gift for the 5th year of marriage is something made of wood. This had me pretty excited so I set about back in December procuring wood on my extremely limited budget. I got...
  3. Spalted elm spoons

    Two spoons from scraps from the large slab of spalted elm that's going to be my new workbench and shop stool. The smaller one was a scrap I normally would have tossed, but I decided to try making a narrow spoon from it. It's almost all heartwood. The larger spoon is almost all sapwood. Both...
  4. Staked shop stool

    I needed a new stool for my shop. The one I mostly use is 18" high, which is too low for my new titanium knees (they'll get better), so I decided to make a new, taller stool. I took a piece of 3 inch wide 4/4 maple that was just under six feet long, ripped it in half, then crosscut it in half...
  5. Coping bowsaw

    This weekend I took a poor quality coping saw and turned it into a bowsaw. The original wouldn't keep the blade tight when cutting, so the bowsaw mechanism really helped. The crosspiece is maple from a piece of firewood from my father. The spinner is red oak and the handle is unknown (sycamore...
  6. Walnut Horse Boot Jack

    This is a boot jack inspired by skone. It helps you removed your boots without mucking up your hands. It was a last minute Christmas present for my in-laws made from walnut which came from a tree they had milled years ago. The wood has been sitting in their barn ever since. My wife's papa...
  7. Shop dustpan

    I've been needing a dust pan for my shop for a while. I have a cheap one, but in order to sweep up, I end up having to bend down, and with my bad back, that's no fun. So when I saw the one in Popular Woodworking by The Schwarz, I added that to my to-do list. I cut a couple pieces of elm for the...
  8. "Hapag Larawan" Console table

    This console table is part of a set commissioned by a client. I will be posting the dining table and chairs as soon as I get it finished. The whole set will find its home in Frankfurt, Germany by next month. The legs are stack laminated, steam bent Ipil and Molave. the locks are kamagong...
  9. Screed (not a straight edge)

    My wife is an elementary age (grades 3-5) science teacher at a private school in Massachusetts. This summer she was able to get an augmented reality sandbox for the school. Last weekend while helping her get it set up and calibrated I realized that it would be helpful for her to have a screed...
  10. A gingerbread man.

    A small collaborative gingerbread man cut from 1/4' plywood. I cut it with my coping saw, and then the Bee sanded it. She wanted a gingerbread man to paint, and I wanted to practice with my coping saw so we both got a good deal on this one.
  11. Beer tankard

    For the beer swap this year, I had decided to build a tankard. I'd seen tankards in Woodworking in Estonia and thought "how hard could it be?" That usually leads to an interesting build. I had a chunk of crab apple from a tree from my yard. It came down four years ago, and a friend had...
  12. Personal shop projects

    Made from some walnut and hickory I had laying around my shop. Inspired by John Wilson's book Making Wood Tools. Fun projects.
  13. Coping with the holidays

    Hey gang, hope all is well out there in LJ's land. I am still in the toy shop working on the turned tree ornaments for those who might wonder if they are painted….lol….they should be up in the next week or so. Here is an old school jig for those who enjoy cope sawing and would like try a...
  14. A Box of Firsts

    Yeah I know, it"s just a box. To me it means a great deal more than that. This is the first project I've completed where nothing but hand tools were used. Firsts for me include; -Planing everything to thickness using a scrub plane and my jack plane -Creating the dovetail joints -Creating the...
  15. Coping saw

    This is a coping saw I built from citrus wood I got from AZWoody a couple years ago. It's really a pretty striking yellow, and I think the contrast with the coffee used while kolrosing it makes for a good look. Construction details are in the blog I wrote while working on it. Pins came from...
  16. Globe Shelf

    Only a simple little project today. I got sick of the globe kicking around and made this quick shelf. Supports are maple. Outside shaped by bandsaw, inside by hand coping. The real innovation I wanted to try out is instead of driving the screws straight in (which never ends well) I ran them...
  17. Red grain-filled ash coping saw

    After building the black grain-filled ash coping saw for the swap, I had some ash left. I built another coping saw, slightly thinner, and then grain-filled it with red-dyed fill. It's maybe a little too thin, as it flexes a little in use, but I like the look of it, and will probably use it to...
  18. Piano Box - Willow Burl

    My wife is a pianist so I decided to make her a piano box for Valentine's Day. I again used the willow burl I salvaged from a stump the city cut, down the street from my house. The whole thing is carved/routed from a single solid piece of wood. The piano keys are made from moose antler and the...

    From a set of Paul Sellers Plans, a desktop organizer, in Red Oak..not counting the lid and the base panels (1/2" thick, each) sides are 4" tall…panels are 12" x 5-1/2"...ends of the box are 4-3/4" x 4" Drawer uses both half blind dovetails and through dovetail. A pair of 1" brass hinges for...
  20. 2 boxes, made from scraps

    Shop was getting way too many pieces of scrap wood, scattered around in the shop…sorted out the worst of the mess into the burn barrel, the remains? were sorted through, and all were resawn down a bit…at least they were close to the same thickness.. Plus a few "panels"... Figured I could...
