  1. crooked whimsical birdhouse

    The challenge: no straight lines and no plan! Just do it! Materials consisted of whatever i could find anywhere and everywhere.
  2. You think its crooked?

    Built for fun and donated to a friend for auction following a total loss of his home in a fire.
  3. Rustic red aromatic cedar log end tables

    Here are a pair of end tables someone ordered from me. I made sure to point out I was not going to make benches and that they would not be built to hold a great deal of weight. This afforded me much more artistic latitude. I only charged 50 a piece for them since the guy had no idea he was...
  4. Crooked Cedar Porch Swing

    My first Cedar porch swing can be seen in an earlier project posting. The lessons I learned from that first attempt are all incorporated here in this second one. This second swing was ordered from a woman who saw the first one but wanted a few changes. It was much easier to build and I didn't...
  5. Woodturning
    Today I bought a Nova modular 12" tool rest for my Rikon mini lathe. After installing it, I realized that it wasn't level, or aligned with the bed of the lathe or the axis of rotation of the turning stock. Reversing it gives the same result: it is about 1/8" lower on the headstock side. I am...

It was sitting on a pallet at my wholesale supply, and I asked what the price was, and since it was...
  7. Blogs
    Scary Sharp Method so just like every other woodworker at one point (what's up with the other every other woodworkers is beyond me…) I was researching and learning about ways to sharpen my chisels, planes, and other blade tools in the shop. Since I am the weekend warrior at this point, and I...
  8. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hey gang. Ultra new guy here. I searched for quite a while for the answers to my questions and didn't find them so I hope I am not repeating past questions. I have been building log (aromatic red cedar) furniture for a while now. Mostly large, unfinished, half log benches and straight(ish)...
  9. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I happen to work for a financial institution and I have heard it through the grape vine that there is a new policy coming for all Visa Check Card holders (what is hooked to a checking/savings account). I found out in an email that this is being sent out to our Visa Check Card customers...
