  1. Sand Speeder Toy

    Have you ever watched those Christmas specials with all the elves sitting around making wooden toys. Then on Christmas morning, kids all over the world start opening plastic toys that require batteries. What gives? When my son was born, I decided that every year Santa would be giving him a...
  2. First Try with Dremel Router

    Here is my first try at router woodworking. Used an old Dremel 400 XPR that I have used around the garage for grinding, cutting, and polishing. Thought I would give routering a try. The old raised grain weathered wood was quite the challenge for the 1/8" router bit. But, I think the jagged...
  3. Ohio University Bobcat Sign

    I upgraded from a Dremel router setup to a Bosch Colt Palm Router. Had to use the Dremel for some of the fine detail work. Love my first try with the Bosch Colt. GREAT TOOL! Thanks to JimmyHack for sharing his design. He did this as well with scroll saw. I envy his skills. Here is the...
  4. co7&8 Carved spindles

    I had to make the head larger due to excessive barking and to support the carved swirls. I wonder if I can get it more in balance with the rest of the spindle next time I am able to turn a spindle. It spins well, but it is taking longer for me to like the look of the 'big head' The same time it...
  5. Battle shots

    A few months ago my brother approached me to build him a drinking game for an upcoming Jack and Jill party we were attending. While it wasn't the most elegant build, it gave me an opportunity to get used to my craftsman contractor saw, and the work flow of my new basement shop. Others on this...
  6. Police & Fire Flags

    I picked up a real steal, 78 - 4.5" x 8' pieces of mystery lumber at our local Home Depot for $5.00. The lumber was returned from some job site in pretty poor shape and was going to be crushed. I told the lumber manager I would take it and got charged the whopping $5.00. When I found out the...
  7. cherry globe lamp

    This still did not come out right. I've been piddling with it for a long time, shelving it & waiting to find the right root stand, but i am still not happy. The root doesn't match; i probably should have stained it to match…oh, well, it is kindof fun anyways. The cherry globe is a branch hole...
  8. Harmonica microphone`s

    I started making these now after i got a request from a friend that he needed a harmonic mic but wanted something alittle unique. Well i figured since i never saw one made out of bone before that should fit his request..lol. The second mic i added a volume control to it which seems to be a nice...
  9. Guitar Pick Box

    I have a friend who builds and plays guitars and lives in Nova Scotia , he ask me to create him a pick box. This is what I came up with. It`s made from 4 different kinds of exotic woods with a cow bone insert. I tried my hand at skrimshaw. Not exactly the way the pro`s do it, but it came out...
  10. Exotic woods Guitar Bridges

    Besides building stringed instruments I also make custom guitar bridges, here is just a few of those. They all have either a piezo disc or a piezo rod inside for the pickup. I think the piezo rod produces a more fuller sound then the piezo disc. The 6 square 2" bridges that are grouped together...
  11. Another wood Dremel storage case

    After years of struggling to get the cord wrapped just right, so my Dremel would fit back into its original plastic storage case, I finally bit the bullet and designed/built my own wood storage case. I made my case from common 3/4" thick pine planed down to 1/2". For the corner joints, I glued...
  12. Rotary tool Cabinet

    This project was taken from SHOPNOTES Vol 21 Issue 124. I have finally finished the man cave/workshop reno with just a few minor touch ups. Took me a year or more but it was worth it. So now I get to cut stuff up and make stuff. One of the first projects I have completed is this Cabinet for my...
  13. Antiqued Dog

    Rush order for Antiqued Dog
  14. A little history.. First projects...

    Two years ago this Christmas, I decided I wanted to take a step back from commercialism and make some toys for my sons, Gabe and Sam. Gabe was 8 and Sam was 11 at the time. I was not exactly armed for the challenge, I had a hand drill, a large miter saw, a jigsaw, and a dremel with a new plunge...
  15. Dremel Cut Test Sign

    I bought a number of different carbide Dremel cutters at Kent's Tools in Tucson and wanted to try them out on a sign so I cut this sign for the neighbors. It is made from some mesquite slab wood ( all sap wood) but too pretty to throw away. I put some turquoise inlay in the saguaro cactus and...

  18. Sanding Blocks

    This is a pair of sanding blocks I made this weekend, out of scrap ash and maple, with a pair of knurled brass knobs and nuts. I blogged the entire process here.
  19. Snake Walking Cane

    I make a lot of different walking canes but this is probably my most unusual. A friend gave me this piece of wood and said I could have it if I thought I could make something from it. It is a piece of box elder where a honeysuckle vine had wrapped around it. Over time, the wood grew out and...
  20. Camping knife

    This is another knife blade from woodcraft. I made this one for my brother-in law. He does some hunting and camping, i figured it would help him out. Overall i believe it is just over 7 inches. The handle is cocobolo with a stripe of red oak in the middle. The leather sheath is made of some...
