  1. The snake cube

    Finally, I finished my first real project! It is a puzzle composed of 27 cubes of oak and beech. They are linked together by a sandow which crosses them through and through. The oak cubes were tinted with walnut stain. Then, they were varnished with spray lacqueer. It was made for a Christmas...
  2. Wood Robot Cube & Box

    I saw a cube robot like this in a department store in London for £300- . My fiancee wanted one so I decided to make her one for her birthday last month. The challenging part was designing it such that the cuts and cube sizes allowed it to fold neatly into a cube. Got a little confusing at...
  3. Wine storage rack

    Here is a project I have been wanting to do in our basement. It's a wine cube storage rack. It measures 20" x 20". It holds two cases a wine per cube. Now I need 8 cases to fill it. This made from sande plywood which is a nice smooth plywood. We are keeping ours Unfinished.
  4. Turner's cubes

    Saw some pictures of these on the web and was procrastinating. Figured I could make them. Wood is hickory that fell on my shop and salvaged from the firewood pile. I did not use a lathe or a mill - used a drillpress and Forstner bits. Used a scalpel with a #11 balde to free up the inner cubes...
  5. Reclaimed pine as vases for cactus

    This is my first "project" here, inspired by some photos I've seen online. Using a 75mm (3") square pine block, made 3 cubes and drilled a 45mm hole to fit the cactus. Finished with 2 layers of varnish with hardener to protect the wood from water.
  6. Cube in a cube thingy

    I had a few chunks of cedar on the saw from the deck we're building and decided to try one of these cube in a cube gizmos. Surprisingly fast and easy. I probably have 15 minutes in it. Cedar is not the ideal material because the center cube got a little beat up. Very easy to sand and needs no...
  7. Cube In a Cube - Puzzler

    Recently, I saw a video that someone posted from a local woodworking club that I belong to in Indiana . It showed how to make a cube in a cube. At first glance I thought how the heck did someone do that? It must have been whittled. Turns out, it's a really simple trick with a drill press and...
  8. stained glass and wood night light

    I really like the look of stained glass and wood together so I decided to combine them! This is just a rough test project using pine wood and a sheet of green wavy stained glass that i cut into 4squares, each 6×6 inch. The front, sides and top have glass in them while the back and bottom is...
  9. 3 cornered cube bowl

    Hi All, This is a three cornered bowl I made after watching Bob Hamilton's videos on the same subject. It's Spalted Beech, about 6-7" diameter and unfinished at the moment as I need it to settle down a bit before I finish turn it. Hope you like.
  10. A Turned Cube (and some Scraps)

    Its hip to be a square. Well, its actually a cube. A square would look more like this. Most turners are aware that a cube can be turned on the lathe. I'm speculating here, but I'll bet this was probably initiated with the metalworkers. I've always wanted to try one for myself. I had half of a...
  11. On Golden Feet

    After long silence and too many unfinished projects, I've finally managed to wrap up a few to post. I'm starting off with one of my favorites so far. It's been sitting around for ages and really just needed another layer of metal leaf to go over the parts that had oxidized in all that time. On...
  12. Solid Mesquite Sculpture Stands

    A client/friend of mine wanted to make two new bases for some sculptures he recently purchased. He wanted to make a mesquite base that had "cracks and natural flaws" but also had very smooth squared surfaces that would show off the grain. I took on the job not only because it tested the limits...
  13. Cube in a Cube

    This was my first project, the cube in a cube. Quick and Easy!
  14. Minimum waste sliding top cubical 2-5/8 box

    Was casting aroud the shop and found a 9-1/2" piece of poplar 1×3 and decided to make a perfect cube box. Sliding top boxes are simple to make and from a piece of random 'one by' I try to make a 'zero waste' project. Zero waste isnt possible, but I think I come close. The box sides are all 1/4"...
  15. Suspended Cube

    Just a quick, fun project to rest while studying for a chemistry exam. I used 1 3/4" cherry for this piece, and the suspended cube in the middle was actually a mistake, but I decided I liked it and made a few more! I have a couple other projects that I might move over here soon at this site.
  16. Entertainment Storage Cubicle

    Well this is my first attempt at making something nice to bring in the house (basically my first wood working project with limited tools)... We had a REALLY cheap oak veneer 80's entertainment center and it wouldn't fit our new flat screen tv. So I decided to build this stand to hold our tv and...
  17. Bottle in a cube

    My latest turning off the lathe. My version of "David Springett's Shpere in a cube". Wood is Sapele, and Spalted Maple. Cube is approximately 3 1/4" sq. And is turned from one piece of wood! Sphere wall is 1/4" thick. Finish is Mahoney walnut oil. Comments and critiques welcomed! Paul
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hadn't done any research when the opportunity to buy a used Grizzly 1/2" bore shaper (G510z) came up and I jumped at it. Heard shapers were the way to go with things like rails, stiles, raised panels. So now I see Grizzly doesn't even sell 1/2" bore cutters to use on raised panel doors. And...
  19. Wood & Lumber
    Hi all. I just stopped at a church fair and saw these two cutting boards begging to be recycled ($1 each). I am at a loss as to what kind of wood they are. The Small board (1-3/4×10 x 10) weighs 4 lbs and could be butternut??? I have never used butternut, so I'm guessing. The Large board...
  20. Wood & Lumber
    There are so many of them… wood parquet (NARRA) 2 X 6 inches and 3/8 thick. These came from the floor of our office. I told the workers to be careful and as much not to break them into pieces. Here they are in photo: After cleaning I glued 3 pieces to create squares of 6×6 and here how...
