  1. Cutting board, Edge-grain

    I built this for my sister-in-law for Christmas. Finally had a Christmas that I got to build/make/cast/machine all of the gifts I gave! Although I admit, this is not the most beautiful board, I only had a week worth of lunch breaks to work on it. I made a jig to drill 45 degree angled holes...
  2. Child's Rocking Chair

    My father in law is a woodworker and would make little rocking chairs for his great grandchildren when they were around two. He is getting up in years and has finally decided to "pass the torch" to a younger generation. My daughter's baby needed a little rocker like her big brother and this is...

    A work entitled "The Lady". A single drawer, bandsawn box. The timber is Australian Red Cedar. Finished in pure Tung Oil, fine sanded to 1500 wet & dry. Fun to make. Tony Ward
  4. Counter Stools

    The wife requested a pair of "Counter Stools" for our kitchen. She found a couple of pictures online that she like so I got busy. I used Southern Yellow Pine cut from 2×12x12's from a local lumber yard. Their quality was so much better than from the Orange or Blue Boxes. Nice tight, straight...
  5. Entry Mirror

    Our first project, a red oak entry mirror for our anniversary. I etched the mirror as a suprise, a very simple but elegant project. (tavern mirror from The complete Book of Woodworking)
  6. Locking (liquor) jelly cabinet

    I rent my summer cabin 4 weeks a yr, so I wanted a way to not box up the liquor & drag it to basement every year. My table is oak & I had 750' of pretty Peruvian walnut flooring strips I paid for but never used. So I found a plan for jelly cabinet & modified it. I wanted the door to fit in a...

  9. Oak shaver and brush hanger

    Nothing too fancy. I needed a hanger for my razor and shaving brush in my spare bathroom. Had a scrap of white oak that's a pretty close match to the wood trim in the bathroom. Cut two pieces, drilled a few holes, chamfered a few edges, glued things together with a couple dowels to be extra...
  10. Crib

    I built this crib for my Granddaughter. It is constructed from pine. The back is a herringbone pattern "panel" that is installed in a dado framework. The slats were all cut from 3/8" pine 1 1/2" wide. Used a roundover bit to roundover the sides of the slats. It is built to be convertible...
  11. Porcupine of my dreams

    Or should I call it a Porcumaple? Three layers of figured maple. All done by hand - this was one of my hand tool projects. Various saws, chisels, planes, rasps and most of all my now beloved spokeshave! Oh, and lots and lots of sandpaper. About the time I thought I was ready to finish, I...
  12. Strapped 2 Birdhouse

    Yet another recycled pallet wood birdhouse. The roof was cut from heavy rusted straps found beside the railroad tracks on my way to work. The straps had been wrapped around cross ties they had replaced. I drilled holes through the back corners of the birdhouse and plugged with dowels. Added...
  13. Book holder

    My wife asked me for a book holder. An adjustable one no less. So this is what I came up with. This was built while taking a break from working on my harpsichord. The wood is Peruvian Walnut and it's constructed with visible dowel joints which are oak for contrast. Finish is oil poly. It's...
  14. Mr. Formal Tuxedo Cutting Boards

    The bowtie inlay and contrasting woods make these cutting boards look like a tuxedo with suspenders. The wood species are cherry and walnut. Splines, dowels, and inlays create some contrast. I sealed them with Howards Butcher Block Conditioner which works very well. It is a mix of food...
  15. Just Another Old Door, Or Not.

    I got my hands on a few old doors, some were antique, some were not. Based on the holes for the knobs, this one appears to be from the 40s or 50s. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do, so I took the top panel out and put some shelves in the hole. The rest was just trial and lots of...

    I wished to build a custom square coffee table to suit our new sectional couch. The design elements I was looking for were: rustic & sturdy with maximum storage. This is my first project with quarter-sawn white oak, as well as featuring a drawer. A rough prototype table was put together and...

  18. Console Table

    Since we decided to renovate one of the rooms in my house to a home office, we have been planning and researching the look of the room so we decided to do a minimalist look and my wife needed a table that was flush with the window sills in the room so as that we could put plants and a few...
  19. Gatling Rubber Band Machine Gun

    I made this fun rubber band gun in a weekend and made a video of the build along with an instructable (http://www.instructables.com/id/Gatling-Rubber-Band-Machine-Gun-Easy-Weekend-Proje/) with step by step instructions and free printable templates so others could make this fun project too. I had...
  20. Bench with Storage

    This is the first indoor bench I ever made. I used 2×12's for most of the construction and the 1/4" plywood for the bottom. I pegged the corners with two dowels each to help prevent racking, the dowels are actually old sponge brush handles (use what you got!). The lid is a simple lift off style...
