  2. Another Crown Gents Saw Re-Handle.....

    This has been on the back burner for a while. Last spring I replaced the gents handle on an 8" Crown gents saw http://lumberjocks.com/projects/83969 and very soon after I wanted to do the same for a 10" saw. The 8" works great and is still a keeper but I wanted a slightly larger stroke when...
  3. Framed Flag

    I was asked to frame this guidon (flag) as a going away gift for my departing commander at a squadron I belonged to some years ago. While she was commander, we stood down one group and stood up another in its place, so the flag was hers for the taking. She was probably the most even-keeled and...

  7. Walnut Curio Cabinet

    This is my first extensive woodworking project and it really challenged my skills. The walnut for the project was given to me by my dad. He had it stored in a shed for the last 25 years. The wood was pretty rough looking and dirty when I got it but, it planed up nicely. I didn't show the rough...

  11. Red Murphy bed (w/bld. pics) | Custom

    This is a Murphy bed that we built in the Smithsonian style, but without a desk. One of the biggest changes we did was to add fluted molding to the bookcases. We added it as a build up and not just as part of the face frame. This gave the crown and base moldings a flared out look. We...
