  1. Tiger Maple Tenon Backsaw - Disston D-4

    Just finished this 12 inch tenon saw thanks to some down time during Christmas vacation. It is based on the Disston D-4 12-inch tenon saw, with an obvious modification being curly maple material and milled brass hardware. I have been tinkering on a few custom saws for a traveling tool chest. The...
  2. New batch of handsaws

    I have been quite busy lately making saws among other things. Two of these saws are going to BigRedKnothead and one of them went to JordanP The panel saw is a 24 inch 8 ppi crosscut saw with a padauk handle modeled after a Disston No. 7. The plate is .032in 1095 spring steel. After that is the...
  3. Handsaw Handle Repair

    I have a Disston D8 that was needing to get restored and put back to use. This saw took the normal work, clean the blade and sharpen, but when it came to the handle I found myself holding back on replacing the handle due to a broken horn. The D8 handles are different than others due to no slot...
  4. Wooden Ruler

    My lovely wife is a teacher and I wanted to make her a going back to school present. I drew A LOT of inspiration from http://lumberjocks.com/projects/98209 . Thanks to jordanp for the idea. I am not too confident with the woodburner so I decided to not include the numbers above the hashmarks...
  5. A few things, Summer 2011

    For a while there, all I was doing was foot stools of one sort or another, for sale. Sucked the fun right out of woodworking for me. Shifting gears now - back to the fun again, I'm hoping. Things I've done just recently… -Three stool orders. Milk painted pine and poplar, hardwoods tops, etc...
  6. 1940's Disston saw handle refurbished to 1888 model with added wheat carvings

    I bought this saw on ebay, and it had many initials carved in it. It is a 1940-1950 vintage saw, but I always liked the 1888 Disston saw with the elaborate profile and carvings. So I sculpted the handle as you can see in the first two photos. The original is shown in the next two photos. The...
  7. Library Table

    I made this in 2001 per plans purchased from The New Yankee Workshop. It was made from Cherry purchased from a local farmer from Utica, Ohio. The boards all came from the same tree and it was finished with Tung Oil (several coats I recall). The legs are tappered on the interior sides down to...
  8. Restored Disston panel saw's

    Two panel saw's restored. Based on their markings one of them is from 1942-53 and one is from the mid to late 50s. I also learned how to sharpen these saws thanks to my friend John W. I learned to sharpen using these newer saws so that I am ready to work on some older I just found at a garage...
  9. Toy Saw For Childs Toolbox

    This is the first of a few kids sized replica toy tools I am making for my son for Christmas this year to go with his new workbench. It started out as a small saw from the dollar store that I reshaped into a more vintage realistic looking saw. The handle is modeled after a Disston D7 and the...
  10. Mantel

    This is my current project; it's a Fir mantel with matching cabinets with bookcases. The mantel is done and now I have to finish the cabinets and the bookcases that go above them. The mantel, trim and front piece are all solid fir, while the sides and main piece above the mantel is 3/4 fir ply...
  11. “Limbert” Tabourets

    This is two versions of the same theme. Having seen several pictures of the small Limbert table and then seeing the plans in "Popular Woodworking's book "Arts & Crafts Furniture Projects", and I think seeing one as a child at a lakeside cottage, I was intrigued. First from pictures and memory...

  13. CnC Boards and a Zig Zag too

    Hey folks…. CnC board = Cheese n Crackers board. Bad enough I borrowed someone's idea for these (thanks Chris) so I thought I'd try to come up with a new tag for them. The CnC boards measure between 5 & 6" wide by 13" long and 1 1/2" thick. Woods used are Walnut, Bloodwood, Maple...
  14. Home Show Display Bar

    This is our home show display bar I built a few years ago. It's built out of solid cherry including the bar top. The top is attached at the columns with bolts and easily comes apart. It's still heavy and next time I will definitely consider building it in three sections instead of two. It...
  15. Jewelry hanger for my sister

    My Sister asked me to make a jewelry hanger. I decided to combine two techniques to make it. The first technique was to make a hanger with circles (using a circle jig for the router), the second technique was to make a wooden mold around a steel wire (cf. picture 2, 5 and 6: picture 2 is taken...
  16. Computer Armoire

    A year or more ago I received an issue of American Woodworker filled with projects and information. One article covered construction of a Computer Armoire. My wife saw it and it was all over. She was living with this...
  17. Switch Plate Covers

    One cover was made standard size and the other was made deliberately smaller in width to fit where the light switch is very close to a door jam.
  18. Repair/redesign/rebuild hallway oak mirror frame

    The missus brought home a used oak frame housing a mirror. It was in bad shape, structurally, so I took it down to component pieces, added some contrasting cocobolo splines in the miters, to strengthen them. Sorry about the bad pic, I will try to update with a better one later.
  19. Square table to seat 8

    Last year I made a table for eight… I did have an order for two but only managed to get one finished before Xmas… now the second one is finished and I will be delivering it today… This table is fairly large… at 1500 mm by 1500 mm and the legs are a full 100 mm square.. [5 feet by 5 feet and 4...
  20. Candle Center Piece

    The inspiration for this centerpiece was from Woodsmith magazine Vol. 29/No.173. Unlike the split version in the magazine I decided to try an inlay design. The woods are maple and walnut. I used linseed oil for the finish. I didn't want to use shellac or anything that would be affected by...
