    This is the table that goes with the chairs I posted a week ago.I had a lot of fun making these.I designed them but they are I would say a shaker-craftman style,if there is such a thing.I hope you all like them.
  2. Taller Bed

    My son wanted a new bed for this room. The first one I made him was a loft bed so that way he could do his home work under it and sleep on top of it. The draw back was when he started to grow he would wake up and hit his head on the ceiling. So when we moved into this place I made him a new...

  3. Manzanita Cafe Table

    This table is a two to three person Cafe Table, designed to accommodate 30 inch bar stools. The table top is 35" by 25" and made of alligator juniper. The base is a really unique piece of manzanita which I (for lack of a better word) "mined" out of the earth with its complete root ball intact...
  4. Cheese Board

    This is an order from a co-worker as a present to his wife on their 25th Anniversary. He was very specific in the size, thickness and style of the board - which made my job pretty easy! I wanted to give him a nice sample of different types of wood that I work with all the time. The wood used...
  5. Family Crest Raised Panel Doors

    I have been working on a set of doors that will have four panels in each of two doors. One door will have four panels that displays the husband's lineage and the second door displays his wife's lineage. Only one panel is shown here, I was testing the fit of the frame parts and the fit of the...

  7. Ship's Wheel - Navy retirement shadow box

    This is a shadow box that I made for a retiring Navy chief in 2004. It's a combination of maple and walnut wood with some brass decoration.
  8. A Modern Handscrew Clamp

    Last week, I posted a super simple handscrew clamp made from hardware store parts. It is fully functional and performs its job perfectly, though it is difficult to clamp things when the jaws are not closely parallel. I put some play in the shafts to allow for it to clamp when slightly out of...
  9. master bath

    Here's a master bath I did in Newport. It has a "hers" and a "his" wall. Her wall is the longer wall with the vanity prep area. His wall is the side with the custom arched doors I made. The uppers are beaded framed with inset doors. The base cabinets are frameless. All the arched mouldings...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    This is an open call to all tech-savvy woodworkers: What kind, if any, cutlist software do you or have you used? Did you like it? Would you recommend it? The reason I ask is that a long time ago (in a woodshop far, far away) I used Bridgewood's Cutlist Plus. It worked great for what I...
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am looking for input on which cutlist/layout program is good to get. I am looking for something rather cheep and if there is an adequate one out there for free that someone could recommend that would be even better.

    I've been using Sketchup and Cutlist and Materials 3.3 to layout the walls for the houses built by Habitat for Humanity here in Louisville, Kentucky. You wouldn't believe how fantastic Cutlist is - we can pre-cut all of the parts for an entire house with no waste! However, the reason that I'm...
  13. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hi, I've switched from CutList 3 to CutList 4 (both are awesome!), and I generally use the Compact List option for output. In CutList 3 the web output was sorted by component name. In CutList 4 the web output is listed by component ID - C-1, C-2, C-3. Is there a way to sort by name when...
  14. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm new to this, so I'm sure I've done something wrong. I have a sketchup with Cedar Rails 1×6x48 (Part B)and Cedar Posts 4×4x6 (Part A) to make a raised planter bed. When I run Cut List 4.0.7, using the auto-select all, it only gives me the cur list for the posts. My question is how do I get...
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hello I am brand new to SketchUp but as a web & graphic designer by trade I am getting the hang of it fairly quickly for the most part only been at it for about 5 hours now. I have made a simple card table in SketchUp using mortise and tenons for the joints so consisting of 9 parts combined...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a buddy that is looking for some software that he can put all his cabinet door sizes in and prints a list out for all the pieces and parts. Do any of you have any experience with this? I used cabinet vision years ago to do all my cutlists, but some people don't need all this, they just...
  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have just upgraded my computer and installed the 2017 Sketchup. I have used Sketchup for years, and really become a fan of the 'Cutlist plugin. It will lay your parts out on lumber and calculate board feet. If you name a part with the word "sheet" in it, it will be able to lay those out on...

    My Cutlist plugin for sketchup, which allows you to create materials lists and an optimized material layout directly from a sketchup project has enjoyed good success since the many upgrades and the release of the latest version 4.1.1 here on LJ about 6 months ago. I track all the downloads of...

    Getting started So after looking at all the options I decided to just go ahead and build a bench. I really liked the look of Chris Schwarz's Holtzapffel bench So that's what I'm going to build, ordered the "24 Veritas Twin Screw vise from Lee Valley for the front and like Chris' the large...
