  1. Cypress Quilt Rack

    I made this quilt rack for our den. My mom is a one-woman quilting factory and has given my wife, son, and I many gorgeous quilts that need to be displayed. I made a similar pine rack for my mother, but I made a few changes for this one. This was the first project I finished with my new...
  2. Worlds Best MOM

    Here is a plaque I made for my wife for mothers day. Not sure on the wood the detail is on 1/4 inch stock and the backer is 1/2 inch stock finished with Teak Oil. I had to much glue on there so if you look close you can see dried glue. Bummer for me that I couldn't make it look perfect. Let...
  3. Corner Radius Jig II: Now Adjustable

    Back when woodpecker made their one-time tool quick radius jigs, I knew this was something that would get a lot of use in my shop, so I made my own. There were two limitations I wanted to overcome with that design though; only two radii per jig could be used, and because of the required...
  4. Multi-function Table Saw Jig

    This is my multi-function table saw jig. I use it for cheek cuts on tenons, as a "tall fence" and a pattern jig. I can square an edge of a board, joint a really ragged edge that would take multiple passes on the jointer, cut spline slots in the end of a board both at 90 degrees and 45, (or any...
  5. Golf Ball in Post

    Ok, I admit that I like to make unique items, so here's another one. The wood is from a section of a cedar post, and that is a real golf ball (not a sponge fake). I have tried to show all sides of the "cube" as close up as my camera will permit for the photos. Enjoy. p.s. - I see that there...
  6. Flush trim hand plane - MaFe meets BricoFleur

    Flush trim hand plane MaFe meets BricoFleur Another project inspired from a LJ buddy, this time Bricofleur the father of jigs. Serge made a flush trim plane out of a standard block plane iron and now I was in my plane building mood, I had to make me one. Since I just finished a Krenov style...
  7. Das Canoe

    Here are pics a canoe that I built a couple of years ago. It was from a design purchased from CLCboats. It was built using Stitched Lap Strake construction. Stitched because of the twist ties used to temporarily hold it together. Lap because of the overlapping half lap rabbets. And strake...
  8. More Guitar Jigs/Templates - Neck Taper, Truss Rod Slot, Flush Trim

    This is a group of fixtures used to get the truss rod slot cut, fingerboard installed, and everything cut down to final taper (final with a little extra for sanding). There is a master template (third pic) that is used to flush trim the neck after is rough tapered with a simple jig (fourth...
  9. Toy Boxes for Christmas

    I just delivered 5 of these boxes to a fellow church member for his grandchildren and they are Mississippi State University fans if you haven't guessed it. I made these using 3/4" oak plywood with oak edge banding applied with iron. Four of them were finished with white Benjamin Moore Regal...
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have posted a new video to the Skill Building page of my website. The video shows how I use both top and bottom bearing bits for template routing to get clean edges and reduce tearout. Free to view and no signup required. Skill Building Hope this is helpful, Ralph
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hey folks, I have posted another Skill Building Video on my website. It is a short tutorial on template routing parts that are taller than your bit. Skill Building Hope this is helpful, Ralph
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm looking to cut lots (hundreds) of approximately 7×7" curvy shapes out of 3/4" plywood, and was wondering what the best way is. I was leaning towards making a pattern, trimming pieces on a band saw as close as possible, then using a flush trim bit on a router table. Was considering the...

  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey all, I haven't asked a question on here in some time, but I have something that I just can't seem to find the answer to. I've been using a flush trim router bit, the type with a bearing, to template route some curved pieces for a current project. The material I'm routing is maple, and as...
  15. Blogs
    Background This project is a few months old, but I'm just now getting around to writing this blog. I came up with a novel method of carving intricate shapes with a router, and I thought it was worth sharing. I'm probably not the first to come up with this technique, but I came up with it on my...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi all, I'm interested in getting a flush trim bit for a project in the near future and of course for others down the road. The problem is, even after some research I don't really understand which type of flush trim bit would be best overall. Straight bits are cheaper but seem to have some...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am in the market for one and I have seen bits with a top mounted bearing, bottom mounted bearing and top and bottom bearings. I am considering getting a top and bottom bearing bit as it appears it can do the same job as the other two . . . but in one bit. Or should I buy separate top bearing...
