  1. Keyrings made from scrap

    I try to utilise as much material as I can and these keyrings made from scraps of Oak are the simplest and fastest items I've ever made :) I needed to test the home-made sanding belts for my 6" x 48" Linisher and ended up with these great little gifts. finished with Organic Boiled Linseed Oil...
  2. 12 year old Bird feeder

    My Sophia asked me to make bird feeder for her friend Sarah in 2006, unfortunately Sarah had already moved away. So we have been feeding the birds in our backyard ever since. Sophia and I built this together, so it's even more special. We often see projects that take a great deal of effort and...

  5. Just messing around in the shop

    Last week was stressful at my day job and this week looks like its going to be twice as bad, so being the good LJ I headed out to the shop. I have been trying to think of what I can do with some Walnut I picked up on TN the last time I was out there. I was given some Walnut and Cherry from my...
  6. 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...

  8. Jigsaw Table (Keep it Simple)

    I made this simple jigsaw table so it would be quick and easy to be temporarily installed in a bench vise. The base is made out of MDF (about 12" square), as well as the support arm. The saw itself is held down with only 6 round head screws to be easily removed when required. You can't beat...
  9. Candy Dispenser

    Once again, another project that the scouts put together. These were pre-cut in kit form with some drilling and cuttting needed to finish the project. The candy would sit above the dowel rod and when the dowel rod is spun, it would drop a candy down the "sliding boards" and out the hole in the...
  10. little row boat

    little row boat as a tender for my dad's 28 footer… I did draw it with a cad programm, so I could get developable, flat surfaces to print them for my sheet layout. It was just a test for accuracy and of course some fun building it… It is not as stable in the water as I wanted it to be, but...

  12. Sugar Pine Live Edge Table

    I like the rustic style of having the live edge on my furniture. This table has what I call a restaurant finish (envirotex).
  13. Laser-engraved Bottle Openers

    Trying to do a better job of posting more often. I did a few more laser-engraved projects as they seem to go pretty fast once you have the artwork done. One of my friends has a nano-brewery and calls upon me to do graphics work (in exchange for some of the magic elixir). Thought I'd make a few...
  14. Wall-e toys

    My boys decided that they liked the Wall-e movie recently and so naturally they wanted the toys shortly afterwards. I figured it might be fun to make them each a Wall-e which they "helped" with (at the start). They are made of scrap pine I had in my bin. Nothing fancy, just a couple of rabbets...
  15. Night Stand / Bed Stand - Mission Style (Pine)

    Alright. This was a night stand (Mission Style) I drew up and started WAY to fast. Didn't take the time to plan it all out right, especially not having done this kind of thing before or following any references. However, All was not lost. You can hide a lot of mistakes with paint (And a little...
  16. Blanket Chest / Butler's Chest (Pine)

    This was my first furniture project. And I did the whole thing in my apartment and a little on the patio. Not a recommended idea. I will be relocating my tools to my Father-in-law's garage very soon. That said, I think it came out nicely. Specs: Wood - CHEAP knotty pine from home depot (2×4s...

  19. Plant Hanger for Topsy Turvey Containers

    I haven't posted in a while on either business or fun stuff, so I thought I'd share my Memorial Day project. We're not the best gardners, but like to grow fresh herbs (growing basil, mint, parsley, and rosemary in containers now). This year, we decided to try vegatables in those "Topsy Turvy...
  20. Tequila serving tray

    This is a simple but singular gift I made for my Father. He loves Tequila so I made a particular Tequila Serving Tray (I named it) It's made out of 2×1 pine scraps I had at my shop. I cut them to about 40 cm (15 1/2 in) long and about 12 cm (10 1/2 in) wide. I joined them with simple wood...
