  1. "Table for two (or three), please" -- A sapele nook table

    Sapele nook table with a hexagonal-sided pedestal base (36" Dia. x 30" H) Major challenges for this project: - Cutting the hexagonal post dead-on, using a tablesaw - Cutting perfectly aligned mortises on the post and arms/legs for the Dominos Finish: 5 coats of hand-rubbed polyurethane...
  2. A Beaded Plane Rack

    In making this plane rack (out of sapele), I borrowed most of the moulding planes seen here from a good friend who is also a wooden plane expert to figure out the size of the rack. (I don't think I will have a collection of that many wooden planes at the end of the day.) The beading tool was...
  3. Poplar coffee table

    I built this table out of poplar mostly because it was for a friend on a very tight budget. But he didn't want to go to ikea and he needed a table so I told him I'd do it for him on the cheap. It's made from 5/4 lumber and planed down to one inch. The legs are laminated from scrap leftover from...
  4. Small ash table (not TEAK Doh!)

    After making a 'Horizontal' Magazine Rack - http://lumberjocks.com/projects/361361 - to go beside my wife's armchair, I decided to make a little table to go beside mine. It had to fit in quite a small space, so is rather taller than one with classic dimensions, being 18 in x 12 in x 15.5 in...
  5. Explorer 16' canoe

    I finished this canoe after finding the shell for sale locally. This is from a kit made by Waters Dancing Boat Kit Company out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. These kits are meant to be assembled using the stitch and glue method. The gentleman I bought the shell from made a strong-back and...
  6. Tansu-Styled Bookcase from Walnut and Sycamore

    My wife asked for a bookshelf for her 3 ring binders. She wanted to place it in our bedroom, straight ahead from where, if get night terrors, I'd see it. Realizing that looking at something really ugly was likely to cause the night terrors in the first place, I resolved to build a tansu-style...
  7. Heirloom Step Stool (A Hybrid Project)

    Cherry and hard maple stock. Overall dimensions (mm): Open - 510 (H) x 465 (D) x 360 (W) Folded - 510 (H) x 310 (D) x 360 (W) The top serves as a seat and the fold-out part as a step. Reeding and beading done with the Veritas Combo Plane...
  8. Louvered Shutters for the Entrance Door (Festool DF500 + Cradle Approach)

    The money you save from doing your own shutters with scrap lumber could be enough to pay for the cost of a DF500!
  9. Ladder Shelves (5 Steps) -- DF500

    Materials from Lowe's for 2 ladder shelves, one for my guest room, and one for a good neighbor. Shop time spent: About 8 hours over two days. Finish all the narrow mortises Then the wide ones Angled mortises Chamfered edges Signed
  10. How to mill exposed tenons for drawers with a Domino Joiner

    A dovetail alignment jig is used to transfer tails to pins in hand-cut dovetails. The same jig can be used to make dominoed drawers. Here are the basic steps: 1 - Secure mating boards to jig (for 6mm dominoes, set depth to 28mm for 3/4" stock)-pretend no mortises in the image 2 - Plunge to...
  11. Handle a silicone flipper with the aid of a Domino Joiner (DF500)

    The following steps were followed: 1. Pick color-matching wood 2. Cut a mortise 10mm deep on a handle blank with a DF500 (4mm cutter, set at 20mm depth) 3. Drill and chisel the mortise to final depth (about 35mm ) 4. Bandsaw and sand handle to desired shape 5. Sign work 6...
  12. Lee Valley Tools Inspired Sorting Trays (Made Out of 5mm Ply)

    Size about 1-1/2" x 9" x 9" (outside) 1/2" material which most trays are made of is too thick to me, so I used a scrap 5mm ply (and 4mm Dominoes). The corner blocks are made from a scrap triangular strip (10mm x 10mm). The trays are inspired by this LVT product...
  13. Three-way mitre joint made (a little) easier

    The best way to make three-way mitre joints is to use a mitre saw and a Domino joiner. If you have tried the joint with a tablesaw and a shop-made routing jig, you know how slow and unreliable the method is. You can cut the double mitres first, the Domino joiner will cut a mortise perpendicular...
  14. Make Your Own Mitre Jack (for both hand-tool and power-tool woodworkers)

    A mitre jack is a precision tool that has many uses: http://www.leevalley.com/us/newsletters/Woodworking/5/5/collection.htm It gives the kind of precision that power tools are hard to match. Build it and you can finetune your mitres, squares and angled pieces with (almost) perfection. I made...
  15. Head Stand

    Head Stand! A more unusual project for me…This is a custom base for a "European Mount" Alaskan Brown Bear skull that my husband took this spring. I freehanded it out of a couple of small Redwood Slabs…wanted it to show off the mount, but not be too overpowering and overshadow the skull. Also...
  16. Walnut Coffee Table (Angled Mortised Legs)

    Table size: 120 cm long x 70 cm wide (the widest end), about 45 cm high.
  17. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    So I am quite certain this is a stretch but here it goes, I am really in need of a festool domino joiner just for an afternoon, I am working on a decent commission and originally I was going to use pocket holes but I absolutely hate using pocket holes, not nearly as strong and does not look good...
  18. Hand Tools
    As of late, I have been collecting several old Stanleys, which are of course, made of cast iron. I am well aware that cast iron shatters when dropped, and I am a bit of a clumsy person. How do you protect your planes? Is there such thing as shock absorbing padding for the floors of the shop?
  19. Joinery
    I am building a dining room table. It is your basic 4 legs and a top. My question is, I've used domino's for attaching the aprons to the legs. One domino per leg/apron. Will this be strong enough? Won't most of the weight be on the legs themselves? It's too late to add another domino but I...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I was running a 230v circuit for my used (new to me) 3hp single phase 15amp Jet Table Saw. Unfortunately, I wired the initial breaker as single pole instead of double pole. When I went to test the saw the motor hummed (it was only getting half power), but didn't spin the blade at all. I hit...
