    Hi All This was a specially made small batch of five boxes, commissioned by the Designyard in Dublin, for one of their clients.

  5. Fix it or trash it?

    I learned a lesson this week. It takes no longer to work with good wood than it does to work with flawed wood. I had a piece of what I thought was nice walnut. After assembly and during sanding I realized it was brittle. There are several spots where the wood chipped out while being sanded...
  6. Flight trays

    Made up some whisky flight trays to sell for Christmas at a local artisan decor shop. It's wonderful to see how much the figure comes out from a piece with a light swipe of oil before the finish coats. These were about 18" long and 5" wide. Made the depressions for the glasses with my CNC...
  7. Chess Table

    I've always wanted to build a chess table and the pandemic has allowed me the time to finally get it done. The main makeup of the table is maple/mahogany for the game board and oak for the table. I had originally planned on maple/walnut for the game board, but I came across a mahogany board at...

  10. 1/4 Sheet Sandpaper Cutting Jig

    Here is a real simple jig that makes cutting sandpaper for 1/4 sheet sanders a breeze. It is simply a 8 1/2" X 11" piece of 1/2" MDF that is mounted on some scrap plywood and surrounded by 1X stock. (You really don't need to miter the corners, just butt up the two pieces of wood.) Then...

  14. My Monstre!

    So…. after making the pencil box for our oldest boy, his brother drew up this and requested that I make it for him. I thought that was just so cute, and so off to the shop I went :) I tried to stay to the look of what he drew. And although it's not woodworking genius, he loves it! Sometimes...
  15. Outdoor OctoGrill™ Table - Please HELP!!

    Hi all! New guy here. I've undertaken a fairly (for me, anyway!) ambitious project of building a 6' octagon which houses a center Weber Grill for on-the-fly grilling and imbibing. It's built 100% out of Cypress which I've read to be a great choice for outdoor furniture. I've covered it in 5...

  17. Reproduction Antique Rocking Chair

    I bought this hardwood rocker from the local junk dealer for $10 and faux finished it to give it an aged, well worn look, then put a price tag of $175 on it. I didn't skimp on details on this project. It took hours of hand work to get this look. The varnished maple was sanded to give the faux...

  19. Saw extension table

    Like most of you, my shop consists of sharing my workspace with the wife's car. In other words, I get to work in the garage when the wife's car is not there. As a result, all of my work tools are on wheels so they can be put up at the end of each work session. This made it difficult to have...
  20. Two Burl Bowls

    These are two burls I turned, my first experience with them. The first is a Red Morrell Burl that I turned for my wife's anniversary present. I know she holds her breath now at birthdays and Christmas, not sure what to expect, but she seemed pleased. Burl was 10" at it's widest point (max for...
