  1. Table Saw Knee Switch

    The magnetic on/off switch that came on my table saw is so small that it is a safety hazzard to turn it off. The last thing I need while cutting a large sheet of plywood or whatever…..is to divert my attention from the blade to fumble around with the on/off switch…..oops! there goes a finger! I...

  5. Magnets & Secret Compartment for my Handgun!

    I had two goals for this project. First, upgrade our keychain holder that hangs by our front door. Second was to store and hide my handgun when it isn't in my pocket. Goal #1 was accomplished by building a 12×18 x 5" keychain holder made of cherry. It is finished in a couple coats of Deft...
  6. Plane Till Storage and Expansion

    As my planes have been multiplying, I've finally gotten around to upgrading the plane till I put together for them. The first thing, as you see in the first picture, is that I had to expand over. I grabbed a No 5 1/2, 4 1/2 and 8 off of ebay in the last few months, and I still hold hope for a...
  7. Oak Lined Leadwood Ring

    This is a wearable wooden ring made from a solid piece of Leadwood lined with Oak. The tricky thing with these rings is getting them the right size. My method is to wrap the thin strip of lining around a stepped ring mandrel and measure that diameter with calipers. I then bore out (using the...
  8. Tops, Tops, and More Tops

    I bought Michael Cullen's book "Tops: Making the Universal Toy" a few months (years?) ago, and have wanted to turn a bunch of them ever since. Opportunity knocked in the form of a demo request from my wood turning club. The first request was to turn the parts for one of the Model T cars I've...

  11. KT's Box - My first real project

    This is the 'jewelry' box I was working on and made reference to in my blog about neighbors that don't like woodworking. Unfortunately, it is still not complete because I'm debating a do-over of the lid. In my ignorance, I executed an ill-conceived design. That said, it's square in the...
  12. Closet Storage Unit

    I created this out of necessity because the old brownstone we live in is lacking sufficient closets. KT and I have a good deal of open-air space and high ceilings but we sacrifice storage space. The loft has a small 5 foot wide (only 22" deep) closet augmented by an unfortunate particle board...
  13. Wooden Finger

    Broke my finger and have to wear a splint for 4-6 weeks. Quickly tired of the clunky metal splint digging into my palm and bumping the "enter" key on my keyboard all day. So a scrap of cherry and an enjoyable hour in the shop made a big improvement. Does a wooden finger qualify me for Pirate...

  15. Mesquite Finger Splint

    Made a finger splint when I broke my finger couple years ago, worked great, so when I sliced a finger deep working on a car last week and needed to keep it straight to not open the cut while it healed, I made another splint sized for this finger and the wound location. The reason I made a...

All the boxes were made out of cherry wood. 3/8" sides and 1/2" top and bottom. There were ten people...

  18. China Cabinet

    A few years ago, my wife asked me for a curio cabinet for her tea cup collection. A week before Christmas I asked her to come out in the shop and see what I had made. She shook her head and said "Curio cabinet, not china cabinet!". Needless to say, I also had the curio cabinet done by Christmas...
