  1. Hard Curly Maple Desk and Shelves

    About 4 months ago it was decided that our old (9 years) target desk needed to be replaced, and this wall in the office would be perfect for a long desk and a couple of shelves, with light wood being requested for both. About 2 months ago I finished and hung the shelves and milled the wood for...
  2. Crib for Deacon w/ built in night light

    This crib is for my son, Deacon. It was finished 2 days before his birth. I told my wife I wouldn't be late, but I never promised I would be early, either. Anyway, the crib design is a mash up of 2 different designs we both liked at Babies R Us. It was made to compliment the dresser for the...
  3. TV stand and end tables

    These 3 piece took me the whole month of January to complete. But now the wife is happy and I can move on to other projects. Ambrosia Maple top door hardware was from some shop on Amazon. Finished the tops with a few coats of Deft satin clear
  4. Crosses

    These are Christmas presents for my son's teachers at school. The best part of the project was how excited my 5 year old son was to help. He glued and clamped everything together (the banding and then the main pieces) and also sanded on the oil/varnish finish. They are curly maple and walnut...

  6. Cherry end table

    This is my second or third woodworking project, the first that I'm not too embarrassed to post. It was made during the advanced woodworking course at my local community college. It consists of all cherry, except the drawer bottom may be mahogany plywood, I can't remember. The joinery is mortise...
  7. Curly Maple & Walnut Cribbage Board

    My brother and I have been talking about making some cribbage boards ever since I bought a template at Rockler last summer. Well, a week before we left on our Christmas vacation my brother calls me up and says "Hey, can we get a cribbage board made before you leave?" It was for a girl, so I...
  8. Arrow of Light awards for Pack 29

    Seems it is that time of year - also bitter sweet as now my youngest has finished cub scouts and crossed over to boy scouts. Got to make the 3 plaques for the boys in Pack 29 Looking forward for him to do activities with his older brother, who is a life scout, working on the last few eagle...

  10. Black walnut and maple accent table

    I picked up a slice of black walnut burl last spring while at a woodworking show in Iowa. I stared at it for nine months before deciding what to do with it. The board was 13" X 30" X 3/4" but one end of it was warped. So, after long deliberation I decided to make a small accent table and use...

  12. First Cajon Drums (Awesome Veneer)

    I have heard these cajon (pronounced ku - hone) drums played on a couple occasions. They sound neat when played amongst other acoustic instruments. And hey, it's only a box, so I thought I would give it a try! I followed the measurements and construction techniques of Joe Cruz as outlined by a...
  13. A dresser with secret(s)…

    My wife is pregnant with our first child. I wanted to make a dresser and crib for the nursery. After looking at different designs on the market, we decided on an overall line of furniture from Babies R Us. Of course, we customized the number of drawers and overall size and the finish. I...
  14. Simple Display Easel

    I used to work in a picture frame shop many years ago. We had these simple, but stable display easels. I always seem to have the need for a display easel at church or some other event.. so it was time to make one! The beauty in this design is how it folds up flat for easy storage. The easel...
  15. Cantilevered Bookcase

    This bookcase was built for a friend as a Christmas gift for his daughter. It is built using 3/4" oak plywood with oak facing and finished with Deft polyurethane. It was inspired by Konquest's walnut cantilevered bookcase/room divider.
  16. Cigar Humidor

    I made a small desktop humidor for my cigars. I don't smoke often at all, but being a woodworker it was hard to resist making one. The purpose of a humidor is to keep cigars at the proper humidity (65-70%) and temperature (70deg). CONSTRUCTION: Dovetail joints for the sides. Lid and bottom...
  17. Cigar Humidor #2

    This humidor is nearly identicle to the one I posted yesterday. CONSTRUCTION: Dovetail joints for the sides. Lid and bottom tongue and groove. Walnut sides and bottom. Birdseye Maple lid. The insides are lined with 1/4" spanish cedar. The sides of the bottom stick up into the lid 1/4" to...

    I need to turn some 2" dowle, I want to use my router and guide to cut the stock as the lathe turns. Anyone ever do this before. I was thinking of building something to hold my router, a box for lack of a better word and mounting my router to this box. then slide it along the bed of lathe while...

  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    Two brief questions for those of you experienced with Renaissance wax (or maybe wax in general). I am applying this to walnut finished with Deft Danish Oil. I can't seem to find a good answer to what you apply the wax with. One person mentioned synthetic steel wool (0000?) and then buffing with...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have just purchased a spokeshave kit to build my own beauty. I am just starting out and want to make most of my hand-tools. There are some amazing shop-made tools on this site. I would like to make all (or most) of my tools/handles from the same species of wood/metal. BRASS seems to be a...
