  1. Small wood mallet

    I decided to make a small wood mallet. I have a larger one I made 20 some years ago, but I needed one I could use for wooden planes until I find a piece of brass to make a regular plane hammer. The body is cherry. The handle is ash with white oak highlights. Finish is BLO.
  2. firewood creation

    I found a few pieces of spalted fiddle back maple in our firewood that we collected for heat last winter. The pieces were about 2' long, cuvred and frankly twisted looking. It was'nt untill I ran them thru my 17" bandsaw did I discover the treasure with in!!! The mahogany top,bottom and cabriole...
  3. Saved a chunk of firewood

    I'm not quite sure what it is but I saved it from getting burned for heat. This was a chunk of firewood that my friend and I cut from a wind-downed maple tree about 4 or 5 years ago. I had been sitting outside in the weather and I decided to trim it up a bit and stick it on the lathe. It isn't...
  4. Firewood II

    I've raided the wood pile again. The primary wood is Alder which was the firewood. I used some scrap Juniper for the liner and Black Walnut for the splines. It's finished with three coats of wipe on Poly.
  5. My yearly, or year long, major woodworking project

    I post a lot of my projects with pieces that are labeled "rescued from the woodpile" So here it is, the woodpile, my yearly major woodworking project, that, those who also make it know it's never complete. Made-up of Soft Maple, Beech, Birch and Cherry. This years haul is only half split and as...
  6. Outdoor Firewood Storage

    Pressure treated 2X4 construction. Corrugated plastic top
  7. shaker firewood bin

    Built this from the Popular Woodworking plans. I chose to use vertical grain for the front panel. I have no idea if this was a good idea, but time will tell. I also cut dadoes for the bottom of the kindling box and reduced the thickness of the kindling box front and back. The back is set in...
  8. Jewelry Box from Firewood, for Wife

    A pretty straightforward bandsaw box, with black flocking. The finish is BLO, then shellac, then wax. The thick build of shellac gives it a really deep gloss with a silky, not plasticy, feel. The wood came from firewood being discarded by my neighbors: The front and back seem to be Pin Oak or...
  9. Hand Plane (2018 Hand Tool Build off)

    I made a small hand plane out of a piece of Bradford pear firewood I had lying around. It is my entry for James Wright's 2018 hand tool build off. The iron is a little thin for it to be used for face planing. But it works really well for chamfering and small edge planing. Here is a link to more...
  10. Timber Frame Style Woodshed

    Earlier in the summer I finished a new timber frame style woodshed beside our house. I say "timber frame style" because I use metal fasteners and it is not built using pure timber frame techniques. But, there's some simple joinery and I'm very happy how it turned out. I used wood that was milled...
  11. Valentine Heart

    I finally was able to borrow my partner's camera, mine being kaput, to snap a couple of pics of a 'quickie' or rather a fast project with the axe, hatchet, carving knife, riffler file, and sandpaper…. out in the barn in sub-zero (Celsius) temperatures. This Valentine project besides maintaining...
  12. Firewood Bowls

    I've gotten where I cannot pass up a pile of tree trimmings waiting to be hauled to the dump without looking through it for some potential turning stock. I also have friends who bring me stuff that isn't available in my area. Each one has it's own story which makes it even more interesting (to...
  13. Firewood Picture Frame

    Picture frame I made with firewood that I got from my vacation to Outer Banks, NC. I actually grabbed the wood real quick as we were being evacuated because of hurricane earl back in 2010. The 3rd picture is the other firewood we got there and we had a nice fire on the beach. Not sure what...

  15. Firewood Salvage - Iphone Dock

    Dock for Iphone 5. I made this to allow for my phone to be docked with the case. Not very many docks allow for this. Works very well. Charging cable is held tightly in place by friction, that's it. Phone slides easily onto charger and off. No fidgiting with the cable. I have no idea what...
  16. Wood Shed

    I built this wood shed all out of pallet wood. After breaking down and milling many pallet boards. It's 3 by 4 feet and holds two rows of wood on the bottom part and has a shelf for kindling on the top part. It stands about 6 feet at the highest point. I even papered and shingled the roof. I...
  17. Dovetail Saw from Gent Saw and firewood

    I picked up an old Disston 68 saw at a garage sale a couple weeks ago for $5. It is considered a dovetail saw but has a gent style handle. There is currently a firewood challenge on Reddit r/woodworking, so I thought I would try modifying the saw to have a pistol grip handle. I found some...
  18. Wood Shelter

    This project is presented now (during the height of the Northern Hemisphere's summer) to give you enough time to build one and fill it before winter. :-) More detail and free plans are available on our web page here . Our back yard has enough trees to generate a fairly constant supply of...
  19. Three turned candle sticks

    Here are ones in oak, walnut, and honey locust (thorn). The oak is another one made from an old oak 4×4 I rescued from the scrap pile. It is about six inches tall. The walnut one was going to be a gavel head but i decided to to do this. The one on the right started out as a piece of firewood...
  20. "Pear" of shop mallets: From firewood to functional

    Needing a good mallet or two for the shop, instead of going to the lumberyard, I went to the firewood pile. The smaller mallet and the head of the larger are made from pear wood, and the handle of the large mallet is soft maple. Finished with BLO. The maple was from a tree that we had taken...
