  3. Gettin a new grip

    When my friend's brother-in-law retired from the force he asked me to craft him a new handgrip for his personal firearm. i selected two goncalvo alves scales and crafted them to the plastic original equipment. Since they felt a bit small in my hand, The new grip is a tad wider, much smoother and...
  4. The cutting edge

    After a friend treated me to a nice Cuban stogie, I reciprocated by creating this tabletop cigar clipper. The laminated wood was carved out to accept a standard plastic guillotine clipper and then glued-up. When you're going to smoke a special "ceegar," why prep it on a mass-produced clipper.
  5. Kids Step Stools

    My daughter uses her plastic step stool all the time and constantly drags is from room to room. So I decided to make a few of these to keep in the other rooms. I found the plans on Ana White's website. She does good work. Really this was just good practice for me since I'm still getting my feet...

  7. Mobile Drill Guide Stand

    Mobile Drill Guide Stand. Many times I had the need to drill vertical holes with a drill bit, a forstner bit or a holesaw that the surface did not fit on my drill press. At first I designed a vertical drill guide stand based on dovetail slides, but been able to find a 30cm drawer guide that...
  8. DO NOT BURN

    Well, I can give a joke, I can take a joke, and I can poke fun at myself, too. This isn't a hugely creative project, but a fun one that tells a tale on me! I went to visit my daughter and her family (Monte & 3 Grandkids, too) up in Indiana in May - a long way from VA - too far! My Son-In-Law...

    I made this for my neighbor for Christmas.
  10. Baby crib mobile holder

    Sometimes the simplest projects are the most rewarding. My wife and I wanted a nice mobile holder for our new baby's crib. They are surprisingly hard to come by, and surprisingly expensive. I toyed with the idea of making one myself, but I couldn't find a nice design in my head (plus I don't...
  11. carving or marking knife

    Here are some knives that I made from some reciprocating and jig saw blades. I drilled out the handles and put epoxy in the holes then put a pin though just to be safe. These are just general purpose knives that I use in my shop not to pretty, but get the job done.
  12. Drill press table with dust collection

    Drill press table based on Shop Notes #94. The tracks was made with hard wood, we don't have aluminum t-track available here. Great design, for clamping pieces, nice dust collection and solid double layer MDF platform. I also made some additional inserts depend on drilling/sanding job.
  13. No large drill press :(

    I have a piece of curly maple sitting around and thought I would try to make my first lamp. I have been needing one in a spare room for a while. The piece is 2×4 1/8 and 35 inches long. My problem is that I don't have a large drill press so I just started shimming, grabbing scrap wood and...
  14. A kit box for the hand made drill

    In my previous project post [link] I made a hand drill ala Izzy Swan to use at work when I need to drill a hole in new tuning pegs. This time I made a little kit box to hold the drill and some extra drills plus a few screwdriver bits. I don't expect to need this very often, so keeping it in a...
  15. First Scroll Saw Project: Demon Light Box

    My first scroll saw project since shop class 35 years ago. About 25% the way through this project I was kicking myself. What was I thinking doing something with all these inside cuts for my first try at scrolling? Argh! It paid off though as I am happy with the project and my daughter...
  16. 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...
  17. Homemade Drill Press from a Handheld Drill!

    THIS PROJECT ALSO CONTAINS METAL. If I'm not supposed to post it here (a forum topic/blog?), please let me know, and I'll move it! I've come to the point where can't build more advanced woodworking projects, due to the lack of a drill press, and they're too expensive. After many hours of...
  18. Scrolling Chair

    I'd been using a little director's chair style stool to sit on while working at my new scroll saw and had been having such severely aggravated SI joint dysfunction that I couldn't walk for a few days. The solution? No, not take more breaks from the scroll saw, build a better chair! This chair...
