  1. Take the neck ache out of your day with these beautiful Laptop Risers!

    I have noticed that many people are having neck problems, ie. stiffness and soreness, and terrible posture using laptops. The screen is set too low and if lifted up the keyboard is way too high. This usually works out okay for temporary periods of time but some people actually work on their...
  2. Ergonomic Laptop Risers!

    This stand is made with English Beech and Purple Heart. I know I can use UVA prohibitors in the finish with lacquer and such, can I do anything about that with oil and or wax? I am trying to work out a finishing process that will keep the color the longest and feel wonderful to the touch and...
  3. Ergonomic Laptop Risers!

    This is a Low Ri-ser! That should be said in that very deep voice of Charles Miller from the band, WAR . . . "Low Ri-ser, get a little higher . . . ." Ha, ha! Hers' another one of my laptop risers with figured maple, and jatoba. I really like this design My buddie who is a computer engineer uses...
  4. Ergonomic Laptop Risers!

    This set comes with the high and low risers. This is the highest riser I have and is my preference to work with. I like things that are not symmetrical which this is, and isn't. Personally I like it but most people have lots of touble with asymmetry. That's okay, there's plenty out in the world...
  5. Barker Musical Instruments, Limited Edition: The Cherry Vat Basses

    Out of the dusty manuscripts come these images of a project inspired by what appeared to be junk wood: Timbers about 5 inches wide, 2 1/2 inches thick and 9 1/2 feet long (see the image of self and bass and "before" board). Turns out these were staves for giant vats wherein cherries are...
  6. Vase From Fir

    Vase From Fir.
  7. Pergola

    I have always been fascinated by timber frame buildings. A friend gave me some leftover lumber from her log house in exchange for some tables I built for her so I thought this would be a good use for it. It gave me a chance to try some timber framing and build something my wife wanted. I think...
  8. Emergency Vehicles

    This little set was a Christmas gift for my little nephew. He has a few other cars like this, and so I thought that he might need a little emergency response ability for his growing town. :) These were alot of fun to do, and I hope to make more of them in the future.
  9. Reception desk for the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art

    Made the reception desk for the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art in Wausau, WI. The top is made out of reclaimed Douglas fir beams that were holding up the old Rothschild pavilion. One of our many many late nights at the museum.
  10. Buffet table for the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art

    Made the buffet table for the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art in Wausau, WI. The top is the same beams we used for the reception desk which were reclaimed Douglas fir beams from the Rothschild pavilion. We decorated the front of the table with some old tractor bolts and washers. The legs are...
  11. His and Her Desks

    I recently made desks for my wife and I. My wife's is pretty simple. The base is from an old sewing machine and I removed everything but sides and back. The top is the side from an old entertainment center that I refinished and then attached. Mine is simple construction and made from cedar...
  12. Douglas Fir and Mahogany Canoe (15' Hiawatha)

    I started this project a couple of years ago and have since went back to college so it has been slow going but I am finally taking a summer off so I got it finished up just in time to launch on father's day. Hull is Douglas Fir with African mahogany gunwales, seats and thwart decks with wenge...
  13. Butcher Block Cart

    Butcher block cart. The top is walnut and end grain ash. The base is fir and pine.
  14. Shelf

    My mother-in-law wished for a shelf where she could display curiosities that have been found in the recently renovated wing building at their property. The property has been in the family since 1888 so there is a lot of old stuff stashed away. The shelf was made from a 3 m (about 10') long old...
  15. VCG fir tool board

    Here are the pictures of the new tool board that I made. This is a direct make from Dan Faia's FWW HANDTOOLS issue. I was in desperate need of a tool board when I saw his article, so made it. The material used is vertical grain Doug fir that I salvaged out of a single board for the sides and...
  16. Dustpan on a stick

    I've got a friend who's opening a new shop soon. She cuts hair, and I thought that a dustpan on a stick would make a nice shop-warming present. Hand-resawn poplar sides and back, dovetailed together. Mahogany? plywood top and bottom, a doug fir piece of molding on the back to tip the front down...
  17. Open and Shut case ... I mean boxes

    Shortly after I got my first router (a Craftsman 1/2hp) in 1976 I went on a box cutting binge! I made an adjustable template and a very crude 12"×12" router table, and started cutting out boxes! All these boxes have sliding dovetail tops and, as can be seen in the photo, were all plunge cut...
  18. Bandsaw blade holder

    I bought a bench top bandsaw for Black Friday a couple of years ago (on sale and free shipping). Last year I bought a Grizzly 17 inch bandsaw for resawing etc. I have noticed that all my extra blades end up hanging here, there and everywhere. I usually find them as I am reaching for...
  19. Farmhouse table of dyed construction lumber

    Per the trend these days, my wife requested I make a farmhouse table for our dining room. The table is made of framing 2×4s and 2×12s. All joints are hand cut mortise and tenons (never, ever again). There are also tongue and groove breadboards that were cut with the router. I had the entire top...
  20. FINISHED OUTFEED TABLE

    Well, here's the final product for my saw extension. There are just a couple of tune-ups required but this is essentially it; it just requires the slots routed into the table for the sled runners. It's not crooked like it looks; the camera perspective just makes it look that way.
