  1. Bleach Arcade Stick

    This custom was inspired by the "Bleach" anime series. The case is made from Brazilian Ebony wood that has been rounded and chamfered on my router table. Oil varnished with MinWax wipe on poly. Most of the cases are made to the customers specifications, but for this build the customer was nice...
  2. Maple and walnut cutting board

    This is a cutting board to fit over a customers sink who did not like to see the dirty dishes. Not sure if the dampness from the sink will warp it, ,,, time will tell.

  4. Kitchen Table

    We have a rather small kitchen with storage that just didn't quite meet my wifes needs. After some diliberation on what she wanted, an arguement with the kitchen as to why it couldn't expand on it's own and make more room, this is what I came up with. (Shhhh, don't tell anyone but I had...

    Have always collected clocks and like to make simple ones. Tried my hand with lucite but it is not as forgiving as wood! The Nativity music box has rotating star background.

  7. Joiner's Mallet

    Shown here is a joiner's mallet I recently made out of hard maple. It follows the general style and design of the mallet presented by Paul Sellers in both his blog and YouTube channel. My original plan was to make a "fancier" mallet with contrasting woods …etc, but when I saw his completed...

  10. Large Cutting Board

    This cutting board was for a great friend of ours. She had seen some of my others and wanted something large. She requested 14×20x1.5, this was the first time I had built a cutting board this size so as anything the learning curve was impressive. I am very happy with the final product and the...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    Good Morning Lumberjock world, I have recently found a love for creating end grain cutting boards, I am very new to these but have turned out 4 so far, all becoming larger in size as I go. My question goes back to how to glue up these boards without creating a ton of warping. I should have...
  12. Wood & Lumber
    Hi all, I got some great walnut slabs from a friend and am working on them for some coffee tables. Pretty big stuff, maybe 60" long, 24" wide, and 2"+ thick. Some big checks and splits, but working around those with some bow-tie keys/epoxy/etc. I built a router flattening jig and got both...
  13. Woodworking Skill Share
    I do most of my work with 1/4" and thinner wood, which means that it's not exactly unusual for wood to cup between resawing and actually making the project. It's not usually too bad, but one particular piece of oak was cupped enough to interfere with cutting the joinery. I'm going away for the...
  14. Joinery
    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and am fairly new to working with rough cut lumber. I am building a 6' round dining table out of cherry. I bought the wood and let it acclimate to my garage for about a month before I started on it. I ripped the pieces to width and length before I jointed...
  15. Wood & Lumber
    Over the weekend I bought about 400 bf cherry. This was stored inside a barn for better then 25 years. The price was less then a 1.00 a bf and I'd say better then 3/4 of it is usable to some degree. Most of it is cupped some worse then others. 90% of it is right at 4/4 or just under and around...
  16. Joinery
    I've been working on a bathroom vanity counter top with my dad. We jointed the board(2×8) by running through the jointer, then cutting dados along with width of the boards, and gluing with a spline. All was well with that. Yesterday I was staining the counter before applying my sealer, and left...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Around 8 months ago I attempted to joint some eight foot boards on my 6" jointer and ended up with some serious cupping. Tried over and over without success. I eventually had given up and ordered a new Grizzly G0490x. I figured the parallelogram bed and spiral cutter would make my life...
  18. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I want to build a round table, small diameter 36 to 48 inches max. I planned on laminating, but I am open to any wood suggestions. What I can't find out, is how to combat cupping in the design stage, like how they use breadboard ends on a rectanglur farmers table. I imagine Z clips or the...
  19. Finishing
    Hello all! We are finishing a black walnut live edge slab to be used as a step into our whirlpool tub. We've used Ecopoxy UV on the top and side surfaces, but I'm wondering if we should also finish the underside with epoxy, both to protect the wood from water and to prevent cupping. Is this...
  20. Wood & Lumber
    Hey guys, have a quick question but first the backstory. I purchased a slab online that was preflattened prior to shipping and was cautious of it twisting or warping on me once I got it. Prior to getting it I got a humidity/temp reader to check the info for the room it will live then took it to...
