  1. foam cutter

    I made this foam cutter for work (got paid to woodwork in my garage for a day :). I build weather balloon instruments that require lots of foam insulation to keep things warm at 30 km (100k feet) altitudes. We used to hack out foam parts by hand with a knife, and also had a kludged-together...
  2. Waterfall

    Ok, not exactly woodworking but a lot of fun to make. A single use decoration for a formal dinner for a class of my son's. Plywood and 2×4 frame with cutout for a kiddie pool. I had a guy that insulated new houses spray it with expanding foam insulation. Set a water pump in the pool and ran PVC...
  3. Hypnotoad (formerly Soul Catcher)

    This is a patterened box approx 127×127 x 72mm (5" x 5" x 2 7/8") made from Purpleheart, Ebony and Maple with a foam lined Birch Ply base. The pattern consists of rectangles of Ebony and Maple from 1 to 10mm of in size and is 7mm deep on all faces. The finish is Wax over Sanding Sealer. I...
  4. Maple and Wenge

    Here is the most recent box that I made. This was made this past April for a very special friend. It was made from Birds Eye Maple and Wenge. Finished in Linseed Oil. Really fun and attractive project. Not my own design though.
  5. Gun Box -- Winter Contest Entry

    Well, I decided to get in on the winter contest action. I know my box making skills aren't up there with a lot of the LJs, so I decided to try something that I hadn't seen posted here yet. I enjoy shooting and I own a variety of different pistols. My "prized" pistol is a Kimber custom gold...
  6. Doll beds for my girls

    For Christmas this year, I have made 4 doll beds. First I made one walnut and one maple for my daughter and step-daughter that live with me, and then continued to make two more from walnut for my two oldest girls that live in Utah, these are those two beds. They are about 22 by 9 inches and...
  7. Workshop Sawblade Bookends

    I built this set of Workshop Bookends from scrap 3/4" plywood and an old saw blade. The boards are 6" x 7.25" and I rounded off two corners of each board. It is assembled with glue and screws, and the saw blade is set in a groove with epoxy. I attached non-skid shelf liner to the bottom with...
  8. Upholstered Headboard

    I originally wanted to buy one but they went for at least $300-$400 (crazy). After everything, this project cost only about $60 and took about 4 hours start to finish. The 40% off coupons at Joann Fabrics really came in handy! This project was a combination of woodworking and upholstery...
  9. Fairy door

    I've seen a few of these here and enjoyed them very much. This was a quick little fun piece I tried, and now I think I have to do more. It's carved in white pine, painted with goauche for color and coated with boiled linseed oil. I was inspired by the fun ones here in the projects posted...
  10. The $75 Eight Foot Steam Box

    This is my 8 foot steam box that I built for my Wooden Boat Project which is getting me into some new things like steam bending. I'm finding a lot of people happy with boxes built with insulation board. Other people are successful using wallpaper steamers as a steam source with wood, metal and...
  11. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Greetings and salutations fellow Lumberjocks! I build custom cases for guns, headphones, computers, etc. While Kaizen Foam is great for this application, the price is ridiculously high for a sheet of rubberized air pockets. I'm looking to find a foam that would work well for custom cases at a...
  12. Woodworking Skill Share
    I've been commissioned to make a gun box for a Valentine's present. (I'm not sure how romantic that is - but there it is.) The box is no problem, I can make a box. In fact, this box will actually be a fake jewlry box with a false bottom to hide the gun so that it does not look like a gun box...

    Does anyone have any experience forming or shaping foam inserts to fit specific items? I would like to nest small tools in a shaped foam insert in a box. I have tried using poly foam seal, various sizes of weather strip adhesive backed foam, and a few other messy methods that were all abysmal...

    Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project Well, here we go. I have been working on the design and preparation of this project for 3 years. The final prototype was just completed. This is my second prototype. The first one was a quick (that is a relative term) mock up to see if I had the size correct. I...

    Buying an RV is not for this Lumber Jock, I will build one! How about a retro teardrop travel trailer big enough for a queen size bed, AC, TV and exterior kitchen galley? Don't ask me how much time and money I have spent on this. It is a sore subject in the house ;) Or when it will be finished...

    Building the Lower Frame The Requirement I moved back to MN in June 2014, after nearly 30 years away, and my brother quickly introduced me to duck hunting. We're not on any of the major flyways here, so we need to put everything in our favor possible. We read about the advantages of layout...

    Quick and Easy Drawer Pulls This is one of my earliest videos. I had built some shop cabinets and I needed some drawer pulls, so I figured I would make some using an old plastic cabinet handle as a template. A year later and they still work, but I have a different, more comfortable design...

    Morris Chair Design and Cut out parts Here I'm going to outline the method I am taking to build myself a Morris Chair. I've been wanting to have one of these because I really like the look and the comfort, but also because I want to learn some new techniques, especially upholstery. I know...
