  1. Japanese Toolbox w/Built in Tool Wall

    If you prefer not to read, the video is here View on YouTube This project is one that I've done before, mostly I've made these for friends/other woodworkers who were either just starting out or wanting to get into Japanese woodworking. This one will be used to store my growing collection of...
  2. Box

    Just to prove that I haven't been sitting on my hands, here's a box I made out of re-purposed lumber. I built a modular desk for an interior designer and didn't use the corner support(before that it was shelving). I showed up before it could be tossed and took it back to the shop. This is...
  3. Storage box for Milwaukee Compact Router

    I recently bought a Milwaukee M18 Compact Router, and since it's a tool I won't be using often, I decided to build it a storage box right away, so I wouldn't lose any parts before I have a chance to use it. Pine sides, about 1/2 inch thick, dovetailed, with 1/4 inch Baltic birch plywood...
  4. Dutch Tool Chest

    I built my Dutch Tool Chest pretty faithfully to Chris Schwarz's plans. It was built entirely by hand tools. I used 1×12" Radiata Pine from the BORG. It got four coats of Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co.'s Marigold Yellow, then a couple coats of Danish Oil. The interior got two coats of blonde...
  5. Box from re-purposed mahogany flooring

    The June 2013 Issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine has a small chest design that caught my eye. This project was really outside the realm of my current woodworking skills. I have cut less than 50 hand-cut dovetails, and they were not pretty looking enough for this type of project. I also...
  6. Smaller 6 Board Chest

    I made another one of these chests. I like the proportions better than my first one since it is twice as wide as it is deep. 24"x12". Made of pine boards from HD and the case is joined with cut nails which are pretty fun to use. Makes construction much faster than drilling and plugging screws...
  7. Six Board Chest

    This is a six board chest I've been working on with traditional hand tools. The hinges came in yesterday from Nathan's Forge and it is now all together and in my daughters room. Its a nailed chest of 5/4 eastern white pine. The moldings were cut with hand planes. The end grain and some of...
  8. Rolling pin

    Oak and walnut accents. Thanks for the tutorial. Ten more to go. The finish is mineral oil and bees wax from my own hives.
  9. Dutch Tool Box

    Over the summer of 2013 I built a Dutch style tool chest for my hand tools. I found that while I loved the design, the chest I made was just too big, so I built a smaller version of it. I used Aspen, which is nearly identical to Poplar. I went with Aspen because it was available in my area and...
  10. Flip Back Step Stool

    Made this flip back step stool for my girls, and they're really enjoying it. Unfortunately my joinery was a lot gappier than I anticipated because I'm an idiot. This started out as 2 red oak boards I got at a garage sale, and a piece of what I'm thinking is sapele or african mahogany. I...
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    I was able to obtain a 42"x84" x3" redwood slab from northern California that i want to use for a dining room table. It was shipped to southern California where it had 3 coats of tung oil and the top had a couple of preliminary coats of water based poly. The finishing attempt was aborted and...
  12. Wood & Lumber
    First of all this is a wood gloat. I have about 400 bf or more of lumber i just got milled after being asked to take down this 50ft tall tree. Initially the woman thought the tree was walnut. I jumped at the chance. When I got out there, I knew it was not walnut, but not sure what it was. After...

    Making a Rice Krispies Treats storage container I allow myself to indulge in eating Rice Krispies Treats every once in awhile. I decided that one of my favorite snacks needed a better box to store them. The container was made with a combination of power tools and hand tools, and was assembled...
  14. Finishing
    My goal it to create a Greene-Greene style piece using Cherry instead of Mohagany . I'm looking for a uniform orange-brown finish for the various pieces so I'm not fighting grain direction clashes and changes in tone (heartwood/sapwood ) . I frequently see commerical furniture done like...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have projects on the list of " Things to make " and would like to use cut nails. I have used some in the past to make wooden boxes but have not used them much. Does anyone have tricks or thoughts on using them? Also from where did you purchase them? TIA
