  1. Wood Veneer Business Cards With My Bandsaw

    Wanted to try cutting my own veneers to print my business cards on. They aren't exact size but I'm happy with the outcome. I leave a natural edge when I print on cedar and of course they smell great. Softer woods work extremely well, hardwoods brake apart.
  2. Elm pie end table

    Got several pies from a very old elm tree that I will be making into tables for fun. The pie is Elm and the base is Hickory that I got from a pile of throwaways from a lumber mill. The pie is actually a branch from a 150+ tree. There are 70 growth rings in each side. It was cut down in 2012...
  3. Cracked bowl

    This bowl was made from the same tree trunk as the goblet I posted earlier. Since it is deep, it was hard to gauge the thickness of the wall. At the time I was not experienced enough with measuring using the fingers and the trick with looking both inside and outside the bowl did not work for the...
  4. Half Bowl

    While making this bowl, I noticed a large natural crack extending from the pith for 3" in each direction. I new this is not a good sign but I continued turning nevertheless with hope in my heart. When I was about done turning (working on the bottom), the bowl fell apart in two pieces that...
  5. Box with EOD badge

    This is my first comissioned project, it was a direct result of the Memorial project and I also used it as a test to check my costs as the first box I made took forever to get right. I tried a few new things with this box. First I laser cut the badge for inlay, this while easier may not be...
  6. Antique table refurb

    A friend of mine from work asked me if I could fix up an old table of theirs that had seen better days. The table was built by my friends wifes grandfather at least 40 years ago. The top was made up of 4 wide pine planks and edged all around with pine as well. The edging on the ends was glues...
  7. Another maple bowl.

    This another bowl from the same block of maple as the last one. But there was some pretty massive checking in the blank that I was concerned about. So, with very little plan in mind, I went ahead and started roughing out the blank. At this point I thought to myself, "Self, this crack is too...
  8. Outdoor OctoGrill™ Table - Please HELP!!

    Hi all! New guy here. I've undertaken a fairly (for me, anyway!) ambitious project of building a 6' octagon which houses a center Weber Grill for on-the-fly grilling and imbibing. It's built 100% out of Cypress which I've read to be a great choice for outdoor furniture. I've covered it in 5...
  9. Cracked Vase Repair

    Something a little different. Had purchased this piece of wood a couple of months ago. Did not get around to turning it right away. When I went to turn it, I noticed the crack running all the way from the top to the bottom. Apparently the HIGH temps ( a month of every day over 100+) Dried this...
  10. Cantilever box

    We made this box for a lady who wanted something to put her jewelry. i had some troubles trying to design the hinges and i tried in the pc in sketchup and did not work, then i tried some pen and paper and did not work either, i think i needed more eraser!. anyway, i saw some boxes that...

  11. Sometimes I Hate Woodworking...

    So I started getting into the lathe recently, and took a stab at turning a Bottle opener handle. Although I wouldn't consider myself "Advanced" by any means on the aggrevated apparatus known as a lathe, I really liked how the handle turned out, especially the finish. Then came the true bane of...
  12. Wooden Soccer Bowl

    A wooden soccer bowl that I made with my Dad. I did the cutting and glueing and he did the turning.
  13. Walnut Bowl - Turning Project

    I turned this bowl from a walnut log that was not properly dried as the original owner planned to use it for several small carving projects. I was wary of turning anything out of the heavily checked log; however, it stayed together long enough to become a bowl. The last two pictures are...
  14. Cracked, Antique Iron, Coat/Hat rack

    This idea occurred to my wife while we were browsing through an antique store and she saw a mixed bunch of old cast iron coat/hat hooks. She asked if we could make a coat rack, easy enough I said. She grabbed four mismatched hooks and so it began. It was a fun tag team project. I used a 1×6x36"...
  15. Slanted keepsake boxes

    Based on plans from Woodsmith.com (episode 605). I made 3 boxes as gifts, one cedar and cherry, one walnut, and one oak and walnut. Corner splines are also made from contrasting wood. I used solid panels for lids instead of veneered panels in the plans.

  16. Sharpening Jig/workstation

    I built my own fingernail grind jig based on the King Heiple design on fine woodworking. It is a fingernail grind sharpening station, mounted under my grinder and installed on the wall in my shop.
  17. Cutting gauge

    Hi everyone, Here's a pic of a nice little cutting gauge I made recently from Cocobolo and brass. It's primary purpose is cutting dovetail baselines (i.e. across the grain work) which it does extremely well. I made all the parts, including the knurled thumb screw and threaded insert that takes...
