  1. Projects Knife Swap 2022 Project

    My entry for the Knife Swap consisted of a Draw Knife. I used O1 Tool Steel for the blade, cutting it with a angle grinder then shaping it over at the grinder. The Handles were turned from Maple, then made a jig to hold the handle to cut a kerf to hold the blade in place. The blade has a...
  2. General Woodworking Discussions
    I am attempting to make my first axe handle. The axe head I have is tapered from the back at 7/8in to 0.34in in the eye. The handle that was previously on it was 36 in long. I’m looking for pictures and advice on how to made an axe handle. It’s all greatly appreciated.

  4. Log Deer

    I was bored with boards so I decided to make a log deer. I saw a picture on LJ projects. The body is pecan, the head cherry and legs, ears, tail, neck are oak. I shaped the tenons on a shave horse with a draw knife. It about 4 foot tall. I think she's lonely I should make mate to go with her. My...
  5. Shave pony add on

    I built a Stumpy Nubs saw bench and it has been great! Make sawing a lot easier so I did more of it which led me to try and make a Three legged stool. Trying to shave taper tenons made me realize the value of a shave horse but no way could I squeeze one in to my "shop". All this led me to make...
  6. Live Edge Sofa Arm Table

    Made this on a bit of sudden inspiration for what to do with a live edge cut off I got for free somewhere. Didn't know what wood it was, turned out to be aromatic cedar. Tiger Maple was actually from HD. I tried to keep as much of the live edge as possible, but the top shown is significantly...
  7. Ash Live Edge Shelf

    The last shelf in a series of 3 shelves to make for my bride. This one is made out of Ash that I had laying around. I wanted to make this one different than the others, so I made it a "Shaker Style" shelf. The shaker pegs hide the screws that hold it to the wall. Some photo's show it in...
  8. Recylced wood projects, Bench Swing, Arbor, Draw Knife Sheaths

    Here are some projects where I used recycled cedar. The lumber came from my kids playground that I have built about 13 years ago. It has been moved once when we moved to our new house. I think I have pay about $700 at the time for the new timber from the hardware store. Now my boy is 17 and...
  9. Copy of 18th Century Chair

    This is a chair that I made in a class at Annapolis Woodworks in Davidsonville, MD. The chair is a copy of a chair from the late 1700's, and was made mostly using techniques, tools, and materials from that era. I learned a lot during the class. For example, I did not know that craftsman from...
  10. Shave horse

    I have been saying I am going to build a shave horse for a few years now. Today was the day. I had some old oak lumber that was stored outdoors for a number of years, but was still pretty solid, so I figured it would work for what I wanted. Everything is glued and pinned with hardwood dowels.
  11. First Live Edge Shelf

    This is my first stab at making a live edge shelf. We needed a shelf for our junk for the TV so, I thought this might be a great time to make a shelf. The top is obvious with the live edge showing on top of the shelf. But, I thought I'd continue the theme by making the skirt of the shelf with...
  12. ADB Staked High Stool

    I never thought I could build a chair until I read the ADB several years ago. It took a while to get all the other projects completed for everyone else, now I could move onto trying chair making for me. My goal for making this stool was to learn new techniques to help me in making chairs. My...
  13. Shave Horse

    I've put it off for a loooong time. I wanted to make it out of a log … out of greenwood. But, that material isn't readily accessible. Combined with work schedule … blah, blah, blah. I know … I know … excuses, excuses. Well, I finally just grabbed some store bought, kiln dried lumber and made...

  18. Making a large axe head and handle

    In this project I make a large axe in the folded axe style. I took a 10mm (3/8'') steel plate and folded it after which I inserted a piece of high - carbon steel and forge welded it altogether. I made the handle out of ash which had a nice figure on it. To test the axe I chopped down an old...
  19. Draw Knife Build

    Continuing on with my previous post about making myself some bowl carving tools, here is the draw knife I recently built. I made it from a lawn mower blade I picked up at a local thrift store for $5. Unlike the hook knife, I didn't bother heat treating this blade. I simply straightened out the...
  20. The Twisted Table

    Created this in my furniture class this last semester to be a nice table against the wall in a living room or dining room. This side table is made out of a maple top and bottom shelf and cherry legs and apron. This was a fun project to see progress because of the idea with the curves in...
