  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. Slowdown Stool: A Poplar Pallet Adventure

    I checked out a local dump and found some great huge pallets of what I later discovered to be poplar. They were a gray color when I found them. They belonged to a stage manufacturing company, and they let me take some. Perhaps I will visit again. They sat for a while in the garage and...
  3. Pallet to Planters

    My first pallet wood project! I've had the pallet sitting in the pole barn for about six months. Wood is maple, very splitty and splintery. I needed a few cheap planter boxes to temporarily hold divisions from my raspberry patch. Since the maple was split at the nails and impossible to easily...
  4. "Jaws" the jig

    OK, this one took three tries before I got what I wanted. And…it has turned out to be well worth the effort! I have a problem with many sled type jigs, because tightening the clamps often distorts the jig, thereby compromizing accuracy and consistency. I like the idea of a push clamp because...
  5. Oh How I Love Benches!

    Oh How I Love Benches! Who doesn't like a solid bench? Here are a few pics of some interesting designs I have made over the years. Mostly, these benches have been made from recycled/reclaimed materials. I actually use a large barnboard bench for my coffee table, very versitile. And, if you...
  6. Ink Pen

    Turned a pen on my lathe. Fifth Pen I've turned. Black acrylic and gun metal hardware. Wife says it looks weird with the fat lower part and the thinner top.

  8. Finishing
    I have a couple of projects I'm putting SBF on, and would really like to speed up the wait time between coats. I have the ability to put a shelf in my clothes dryer, and run it on low heat, or no heat at all (just circulates air). Would this help? Is there any downside to doing this? Thoughts?

    Direct link HERE Looking for a jig to cut dovetails on a router table. Looked at the Leigh LDJ400 and it looks great but is too big for the space I have. Used to have (20+ yrs ago) a PC dovetail jig that took a lot of space and time to set up. I want something that I can easily set up and dial...

    Zoom-Zoom (and Keeping it dialed in) I see a lot of great Sketchup tutorials online (here and there), and while they do discuss different techniques, tools and what not - you really have to follow through from start to end, and go along a somewhat complex path to get the hang of things. one...

    The plans are in! Entry on 1/15/2016: Hi everyone! I am an avid steelhead fisherman in Southeast Michigan. The rivers down here are a little difficult to drift a float like I would prefer. It's hard to get into a good hole due to lots of overgrowth on the banks and the majority of the river...

    Vape pen stand As an amputee I have intense phantom pain that only a relief vape can stop. If you lay them on their side all the juice pools on the side instead of at the base of the wick. The vape pens themselves have a small, tippy, footprint that easily falls over even if your hand is steady...

    Got a Delta 34-670 table saw from a neighbor who said it runs great…just needs a blade. Started it up the other day and indeed it does need a blade, but am thinking it is running way too fast. Sounded to me like a jet engine ready to take off. The saw indicates it should run at 5500 RPM. Is...
