  1. Manly Japanese Inspired Work Mug

    If you prefer not to read, the video is here View on YouTube So I had recently acquired a full set of auger bits but the box I had for them wasn't really worth fixing and was pretty much done for. I wanted to do something different and totally overkill for the job of holding the bits and...
  2. Rroubo Style Frame Saw

    The Roubo Style Frame saw is a tool I made int he past, but I needed to remake it as I broke my old one. This in one hand tool that can completely change the way you work. My last one was dropped and it blew out one of the mortices, and there were a few small tweaks I wanted to make on this...
  3. Saloon Bird Feeder

    I made this saloon-style bird feeder from two 6-foot fence boards that were 5.5" wide. I read that pressure-treated boards might be harmful to our feathered friends, so I used untreated boards. It has three bar stools and wooden bottles on the bar. The top has a hinge so you can open it to...
  4. Quick file handles

    I needed a couple quick file handles. A couple pieces of scrap with a little shaping from a plane and raspe. I think that the rectangle shape helps to register which way is the flat side.
  5. File handle with brass ferrule

    Another file handle, this one a full inch in diameter. Bought some 1" ID brass tubing to go with my 1" diameter broom-stick. Hacksawed off a piece, bashed it around some with the 3# hand-maul, and then shined it up with the wire wheel on the bench grinder afterwards. Functional and prettier than...
  6. File Drawer Platform | Custom

    This is a platform that was completed in February 2010. Actually it was completed in both February and March. I had to rebuild it. It was for a local designer. I overlooked my notes that the drawer needed to hold hanging file folders. Normally I put three drawer across, but since the drawer...
  7. Oak File Cabinets

    Four two-drawer file cabinets from Rockler plan made with red oak plywood (case) and solid red oak (drawers and trim). Finished with Minwax Dark Walnut stain and two coats of wipe-on poly.
  8. Sharpening Stones Box

    Sharpening Stones Box, it was made out of wood scraps mostly mahogany and plywood, basically, I cuted a big piece of mahogany in two and add a sheet of plywood on the bottom and a piece of pine on the top. I left I litle grove when I glued the pine so that I can sit a stone on top, in case I...
  9. Tomahawk

    One of several Tomahawks I have made this past year. I just finished this one today. The haft is made of high quality Tiger Maple. Finger grooved to make for a better grip. Larger brass heads on the top row and smaller for the next two. I rounded out square stock on the lathe. I then run it...
  10. Executive desk | Custom

    This is another piece from my RSG project. This is an executive desk that is 72"w x 42"d x 30"h. The back and the two sides are a wainscot style panel. The front side had a file drawer and two box drawers on one side. The other side of the pedestal had two file drawers. It also had a pencil...
  11. Knife block

    My sweetie had her kitchen knives just rattling around loose in a drawer. Drove me a little nuts, and they were always dull. So I made her a block that will hold them in the drawer in front of the silverware tray. Nothing too fancy. Just 11 strips of cherry sandwiching ten strips of maple, glue...
  12. Mahogany & Pine Knife Handle

    This time I made a knife handle for a knife I had started long time ago of an old file, the knife hasnt much to it, it has just grinding and reshaping the file. The handle is made of two diferent pieces of wood, mahogany and pine wich gives it a nice contrast. The pieces were glued together...
  13. Get a handle on it!

    Often manufactured handles are flimsy or the connection is not very strong - usually cheap Chinese plastic. I hate to throw out an item that could still be used if it had a good handle on it. So…once in awhile I make a handle to get things back in service. They are wood, of course. And they...
  14. File Cabinet

    I have been keeping tool manuals and other shop information in a plastic file box on a bench top. In this project the idea was to build a two drawer file cabinet that would fit under the bench. For build details see http://workshopprojects.blogspot.com/2012/04/file-cabinet-for-hanging-folders.html
  15. Turned tool handles

    Just three simple tool handles that I turned on the lathe. The chuck key handle is oak. The lathe chisel handle and the file handle are both walnut. I will eventually make new handles for all my lathe chisels. Just wanted to try one to start with.
  16. Sandpaper Organizer, Think I Needed One?!

    LONG OVERDUE! Before I got into making things for other people this month, I decided it was time to make a few things for the shop. What an embarrassing sandpaper cabinet I had! Part of the motivation was that I bought a new Porter Cable R.O. Sander (which I love and will do a review on after I...
  17. Guitar Stand

    well here is my new guitar stand, its made of cherry and walnut with just a splash of maple. I carved this by hand, in pic 2 you can see the ankle, which I carved from one piece. I made 4 of them before I got one I liked. the angle had to be just right to support the guitar neck and belly...
  18. One hour hacksaw

    I have a little hobby hacksaw I use when cutting small pieces of metal. It takes the 6" (150mm) pinned blades. At some point, it got bent, so the blade was slightly twisted and slack. It didn't work very well that way. Rather than go to the hardware store and buy another, only to have it fall...
  19. Free Tool - MacFile

    After cutting out designs using a scrollsaw (or a MacScroll) there is almost always the necessity to smooth the saw marks. This can be a tedious process. This use of the jigsaw can speed up the process considerably. Also the filing must always be vertical to the workpiece to keep the edges sharp...
  20. First Segmented Lamp

    First segmented lamp I did. Crafted for my Grandfather for Fathers Day 2006. First real woodworking project other than the Boy Scout birdhouse type projects. Nice thing about this lamp, is that all the lumber that was used came from Grandpas farm. It was either wood that he'd had sawmilled...
