  1. Hanging ChalkBoard

    Browsing in some magazines I came across the concept of a blackboard. The picture that I saw had one embedding into a door. I thought long and hard about tearing up a door and then mounting a chalkboard inside. It seemed like a lot of work and something that could go terribly wrong, so I came...
  2. 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"...
  3. Pelican Lamp

    We found this pelican at a nautical gifts shop and decided to make it a lamp. Made the base with a thick piece of wood and used a crackle finsh to give it an antique looking appearance.
  4. "Walden" desk project

    After reading the Henry David Thoreau classic "Walden-life in the woods" i looked up his cabin at Walden pond in Mass. and saw his desk and decided to make something similar. I didn't take pictures of the construction because it was very basic (boring). This was my first project where i tried...
  5. Display case

    A display case/going away gift for a a unit at Keesler AFB. They wanted something different. The mirrored back was a last minute modification. I think it really adds to the overall appearance. Their motto is "With pride, worldwide", hence the globe and they do electronics installation so the...
  6. Blogs
    Beginning this Blog I recently was referred to this site by Steve Good, who has a wonderful, comprehensive scroll saw forum and blog page. Although I have been doing woodworking for almost fifteen years, I have finally reached a point in my life where I am able to make it the main focus of my...

  7. Wood & Lumber
    Hi all. I'm getting ready to start building some bookcases. I'm going to use 3/4'' birch plywood from my hardwood supplier. Should I acclimate these sheets to my shop? If so, for how long? Also, I will probably have my lumber yard cut the panels into managable dimensions for transportation...
