  1. Zebrawood knife handles

    This was a fun project that I did for a gift. I bought the blade from an online supplier and fit the handles to it with epoxy and brass rod. The biggest challenge was getting the holes drilled precisely through the handles. Everything else was done with hand files, which took some time but...
  2. Freecycled Kids Easel

    This one goes under the honey-do projects list. My wife picked up a kids easel off freecycle.org year ago. The previous owner had broken both plastic trays and wanted to get rid of it. She figured I could easily make replacement trays for the easel. Fast forward 1 year, and having moved...
  3. 12" Maple Burl

    I've had this piece of burl in my shop for years waiting until I had a lathe large enough to work it. I've had the lathe for 7 months but the wood had gotten lost in the piles of "someday" wood. It isn't anything like what I was thinking of making when I first put it on the lathe, but all in...
  4. 1st project ever

    Please…..............be nice. This is the very first wood project I've ever done. I like the rustic/natural look of wood and its shapes and I've tried to do as little as possible to the wood itself except for sanding. This slab is black walnut? given to me by a friend. I have 3 more slabs of...

  7. Pinewood Derby Trophies!

    I am the Cubmaster for a Cubscout Pack in northeast Georgia. When it came time to deliver some trophies to our kids' pinewood derby racing champs, I knew plastic tokens weren't going to cut it! This project wasn't complicated, and I used scrap wood to build them. The smaller "Den" trophies are...

    I've finally got around to making two wooden Jeeps for my nephews who asked for them ages ago. Thankfully I found a book with plans for a monster truck, but a 1948 Ford. I'm using the plans for the bottom half of the truck but have to come up with the "Jeep" part on my own. After searching...
  9. Woodworking Skill Share
    I need some help from fellow woodworkers. I found a table edge profile that I really like, it's called an underlayment. Anybody got dimensions for the edge that would work with 3/4" and 1.0" tabletops ? What is the angle (router bit) as the edge turns under ? I have several tables waiting for...

    I am building a bathroom vanity because I cannot find a store-bought one to fit. I have done this once before. The doors and drawers will be overlay, and not flush with the face frame. Vanity tops are 22" deep, and are supposed to overhang 1". My question is if that is measuring from the...

    Hey all, Hope everyone is having a wonderful day. I am looking for some help. I've recently purchased a new home and it needs some remodeling. I will be able to build the cabinets myself, but I've only ever built one or two at a time. It would be easier to have a layout and cut list. I've been...

It's missing the the 3-piece table top and I need the dimensions, including mounting hole locations in the front piece (4 for attaching and 4 more for height adjusting screws), so I can fabricate a new one. I have owners guide, but that info isn't in it...

    I just recieved a old craftsman jointer model 113.20680. Upon cleaning it up and preparing to tune it up i noticed the fence slide bracket sears part # 21237 was missing. From what i can assume, it must have been broken and replaced with a piece of flat bar with a hole in it. This current...

    Hello there :) I only just joined this forum so sorry if I make any mistakes I was wanting to build a mid century Z chair by Poul Jensen but there is hardly any information on the exact dimensions, and the tiny bit of information that's out there is very conflicting. I've managed to make a...

    I am feeling tech-illiterate, because for the life of me, I cannot find reasonable assembled dimensions of the 36-725T2 table saw. The only place I have found where someone gives a straight answer is in the Amazon product Q&A, but the numbers he give seems too large. (63"x41") Is that right...

    Standard Way to Give Dimensions Maybe i'm just being the picky sort. But i believe wood, possessing a directional grain, pretty much demands its dimensions be given in a standardized way. I can't count the number of times i've run into problems with people giving wood dimensions in every way...
