  1. US Navy Fleet Map Going away gift

    This is a wooden map 4'x2' with the continents cut out of cork so once hung it's functional art. I think it came out nicely.
  2. Weekend projects

    I made a mushroom hot plate to put your favorite hot dish on the dinner table with. I used press board to make it with. I used the table saw to make the cuts on the front and back then my scroll saw to cut out the shape . I made a meat cutting platter 18" with 6 routed out wells to keep the...
  3. Ghosts of Christmas Present #1 - Getting in the Christmas Spirits

    Shortly after Thanksgiving my wife decided that we should make a (literal) cork board for her mom. Great idea, I thought, something we've been meaning to make for a while. I was happier still when she said by we, she didn't mean me, it was something that she intended to (mostly) tackle on her...
  4. Alder Framed Corkboards

    Had some scrap cork board laying around so I made these quick little corkboards and gave them as Christmas gifts with a gift certificate pinned to it :)
  5. Murphy Beds | Chalkboard | Custom

  6. Christmas Present: Walnut Cork Board

    I began this project a couple of years ago, and decided to finish it for a Christmas gift this year. This was built to fit a specific location in a family member's house, just above her desk area, above the counter she uses as a desk and below the cabinets. I decided to take the first couple of...

  8. Cork board, message board Primitive Rustic made from Repurposed Shutter

    These cork/message/bulletin boards are made from repurposed shutters- donated to me by a neighbor. The frames were made to accept a fabric curtain and did not have a center raised panel installed which made them perfect candidates for bulletin boards. The dimensions are approximately 9 inches...
  9. State Cork Boards

    Ever have someone ask "Hey can you make me two cork boards? One of New Jersey and one of the mitten of Michigan." Well I did. Found some suitable images, traced them onto the cork board, then sawed away with a 1/4" bandsaw blade. It was interesting and pretty challenging to try and follow...
  10. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Here in SE Tennessee it gets reasonably cold in the winter. I think it was mid 20s this morning here. My shop is in a walk-out basement with 2 garage doors so when it gets real cold outside it only gets down to about 50 or so. i really only need to bring the temp up about 15+/- degrees as I...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    A friend of mine has a store that is going out of business. The floor in his store is old 4/4 solid oak planks and he was wondering if they had enough value that it would be worth selling them. The planks are between 6" and 12" in width and anywhere from 4 to 10 feet in length. He has about...
