  1. Freehand Router Fun..

    Here's my 3 attempts at making signs. The first one is for a friend's shop. The second is one I made for my house. The third is for another friend who has just completed a "sitting area" behind his house which he calls "Serenity". These were all done with a down spiral 1/4" bit and a 2 1/4 hp...

  3. Red Cedar Freehand router signs

    I tried a new edge design on this batch and I think I like it. These are done freehand with a 1 1/2 horse router and a 60 degree v-groove bit on red cedar with a polyurathane finish. The humming bird sign is about 30 inches long. The 'Be Nice' signs are 8"x16".

  7. Custom red cedar sign orders

    I love it when they give me creative license, when they say "just make me a sign, I know I'll like it". Then I can have fun with it and try something I haven't tried before.

  13. iPhone dock

    Iphone dock made of oak. I free handed it on the bandsaw so I have no demensions. The bottom needs to be a little bigger to fit the charger in with out bending it to much. But it works good to FaceTime while doing school work or just to keep your phone in sight.
  14. Picture frame

    An oak picture frame I made out of an junk lamp I had laying around. Glued the picture in it then glued two pieces of wood across the top. In the back I cut a dado in the back piece and goued the stand into it. And attached them on. Works good for a small project. And can be sized to any...
  15. Plateau Freehand Pipe

    This is my first time working Plateau briar. It's actually much easier because you don't really have to be precise in anything when you are doing a freehand pipe. I tried to utilize the skin of the burl as much as possible; I think it came out nicely. I used a wedge stem made from ebonite. I...
  16. Simple bandsaw boxes

    Over a year ago I posted a bandsaw box project in which I said it was the first of a set of four bandsaw boxes that I did at the same time, assembly-line style. I finally finished the last two yesterday. My problem was handles. I didn't know of a way to make them look good made out of wood...
  17. Cube Within A Cube

    I posted a blog on a project made on a metal lathe. A 'Cube Within A Cube' I since found out there were plenty of examples of it being done in wood. This is the blog; http://lumberjocks.com/Grumpy/blog/57026 I had to make one and as I commented in the blog; "I could not believe how easy it was...
  18. Exotic Mix Samplers

    These are crafted by hand with a different exotic wood "cap" for each letter. Fine hardwoods like Cocobolo, Rosewood, Pau Amarello, Madrone, Zebrawood, Purpleheart, Bloodwood, etc. are bonded to a Maple substrate. It is a great way (though time consuming) to use up precious little bits I cannot...

  20. Hummingbird & morninglory carved cedar signs

    This hummingbird and morninglory design is my most requested design. It is done freehand with a router and large and small v-groove bits. I try to keep it big enough to not drive me nuts on the smaller parts of the design. I love the way it looks when it is done but have do a lot of talking to...
