  1. Knitting Crochet Cedar Bowl and Tools

    My wife loves to knit, so for Christmas I made her a cedar bowl and some tools. Large bamboo needle, small African black wood needle (yes the eye is a little rough) and a small padauk, steel, and copper hook I modelled after the turning tools I make. I plan on adding to, and replacing all her...
  2. Shamrock gift

    Created this for my wife in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Just big enough to hold a set of her crochet needles.
  3. Some small things

    I was bored at work the other and traveled into the woods. I'm not sure what kind of wood this is, but it made some for some nice small pieces. pic 1-walking stick pic 2- XL crochet hook pic 3-8" crochet hook pic 4- both hooks pic 5- knitting needles Nothing special for a finish, just super...
  4. Knitting Box / Chest / Basket

    A project for my wife. She wanted something to store her crotchet projects and supplies in. I could not find any examples that suited her so she described what she wanted. It needed to be light and have handles so she could move it to wherever she was working, she wanted a split lid for easy...
  5. Crescent moon cradle

    This is the third cradle I've built in a year, but the first of this design. When my wife and I started planning the nursery for our son, due July 14, we decided on a moon and stars theme for the layout. The two prior cradles I built were of the pendulum style available from Wood magazine...
  6. Yarn Winding Tool - Nostpinne

    Another ball winder, perfect for the yarn spinner, knitter, or crocheter. This one crafted from a single piece of purpleheart. I am producing these for my wife's Etsy Online Store.
  7. Yarn Winding Tool - Nostpinne

    I've posted three of these so far, and they've all been of solid blocks of wood, so I thought I'd try my hand at a laminated piece or two. This was the first of the laminated pieces. My experience with wood glue in the 7th and 8th grades (due to going to a poor school) was not so positive. We...
  8. Yarn Winding Tool - Nostpinne

    This is the last ball winder I was able to create in the last few days. It's too cold in the garage/shop to do any real work out there for the moment. Hoping I can bundle up tonight, and get a couple more turned out. This one is purpleheart on the outsides, with walnut in the center. Each...
  9. Cherry Crochet Hook Box

    This box is a Birthday gift for my Mom, she does a lot of Crochet Amigurumi (crochet figures) and wanted a good way to store her hooks. She has all kinds of hooks, metal ones, metal ones with handles and I make her some "fancy" wood ones (as she calls them). So I wanted to make her a nice box...
  10. My Valentine's Gift

    I created this crotchet needle holder for my wife. It is made of Mahogany with a Danish oil finish.
  11. Yarn Bowl for Christmas

    My wife has been busy this year crocheting. She's done many beanies for family and friends, as well as dozens to donate to the babies at the local hospital. (She believes everyone deserves to get a gift for their new born and not everyone has the support and/or the funds to do this) That's...
  12. Crochet Hooks

    Well Debbie asked for them, so I am posting some I randomly grabbed off the pile. Now that I am looking at them, I think I will go back out to the shop today, and do some turning… Anyway, here are some pictures (some are a little blurry, sorry). These are made from cherry, walnut, maple, and...
  13. Bench

    Had to add this to my projects (sorry for those of you that have seen this already). I started this bench in 2008 and finished adding the end vise in 2012. This bench only cost around $300 in materials to build, wood is pine throughout. The only parts that aren't pine are the front vise and...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So I've finally done it…I pulled the trigger on a new Festool domino. Now I'm looking at the domino cutter/tenon assortments and just realized there are two version of the kit-a 4 cutter kit that goes down to 5mm and a 5 cutter kit down to 4mm. Because I don't see myself joining pieces with...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I've started on "the bathroom project". I've told myself that I'm not undertaking any major new projects 'til I get my new shop designed and built, but there are all of these several hour little projects that are so much fun I can't put 'em off and… One of those projects is replacing the...
  16. Focus on the Workspace
    To start, I live in Woodstock, Illinois. I have a two car garage and a full, unfinished basement. I have done some projects, but haven't established my "home" for my shop. I need some help with narrowing down which one should be the better choice. If you can, add any missed points, or enhance...
  17. Hand Tools
    Does anybody use a crochet in combination with a leg vise on their workbench? I'm building a Roubo style bench and see that Chris Schwarz's plans in his 2007 book call for both, but his later bench only has the leg vise. I don't really see the advantage of having both a leg vise and a crochet...
  18. Wood & Lumber
    I believe these pallet slats are Jatoba. Any other opinions? I'm worried about bringing this wood into my shop. One of the planks has played host to a bunch of critters. Should I just wave this wood on it's merry way to the fire pit? Any advice would be appreciated. I'd kind of...
