  1. Journal Replacement Chest of Drawers

    LONG time ago, back when Norm Abram was still in his little shop...I cobbled up a pile of scraps from the shop...plywood, pine, pallet wood, and made a small 4 drawer Chest of Drawers.. yeah...I think I can do a wee bit better than this? Handles were glued and screwed in place...doubt IF I can...
  2. The Marble Roll

    THE MARBLE ROLL When I was teaching children's carpentry and science and a friend lent me a small wooden marble roll to use in class. It consisted of two upright 1 X 4's connected by sloping, grooved troughs. The marbles rolled down the troughs, reversing direction in a zigzag fashion, to the...
  3. The Mirror Steerer

    The Mirror Steeror Years ago a friend offered me a large pile of plexiglas mirror rejects. At the time I was teaching a science and carpentry class for kids, so I was always looking for interesting materials. While turning possibilities over in my mind, I took two pieces (8″ X 24″) and...
  4. Find a Home for an Intarsia Carousel Horse Wall Hanging

    I really had some fun making this piece and it was a real challenge. I saw a picture on the internet and made a pattern based on that with Inkskape. It ended up having 190 different pieces with 13 different kinds of woods. The pole was a real challenge to make out of a block of yellow heart...
  5. Cutting Board w/ handle slot

    I made nine of the birch and walnut cutting boards for gifts, while using up a bunch of scrap wood.
  6. Pizza Peels! <- yes I had to look up what they're called

    After some pizza making failures I finally got around to making the proper tool to solve my pizza problems. I had some old thin cherry that would work perfectly! (at least I was told it was cherry, I think it could be a close relative) The striping in one of them is just sapwood, not another...
  7. So here's a piece of my work

    This is a bowl I turned in '74 when I was in the US Navy and had some free time. It's made of mahogany, don't know which one. It's a little over 8.5" in diameter. The black lines i burned in with a wire. I have no clues on the finish. After all, it was 36 years ago. Sorry about the fuzziness of...
  8. First project

    I'm setting up my very first shop and noticed that I needed a few basic tools, one of which was a mallet, one tool I felt I could handle with the lack of any major power tools. So I grabbed a piece of 4/4 hard maple and began. It is not beautiful, but it's the first, and that has to be worth...
  9. Shut The Box

    I built three of these for a craft sale last month. I sold one there then the person who bought that one contacted us to buy the other two. Gifts she says. Thanks to LJ Stevemarin in one of his WWMM videos. If not for him I'd never heard of the game. http://lumberjocks.com/Stevinmarin It is...
  10. Child's Step Stool

    I made this step-stool for my nephew, Patricio, a few months back. He was dissapointed when he came over to our house and he couldn't reach the sink to wash his hands. My 5 year old nephew then requested/ordered me to build him a step-stool, so this is what I came up with from a few pieces of...

  13. a Cherry Tune

    A quick to make Whistle or two. Made out of cherry cut off, and a maple insert (just whatever I found at hand that would fit together). I made this in a couple of hours with my daughter (including waiting for the glue to dry). Was a fun project. Finished with PPP and beeswax as top coat...
  14. Wall-e toys

    My boys decided that they liked the Wall-e movie recently and so naturally they wanted the toys shortly afterwards. I figured it might be fun to make them each a Wall-e which they "helped" with (at the start). They are made of scrap pine I had in my bin. Nothing fancy, just a couple of rabbets...
  15. Squirrel Spinner

    When the squirrel tries to get to the piece of corn the whole arm will spin around because he weighs it down. This will "spin" the little guy right off the arm. Sometimes they fly, sometimes they just fall. They've successfully snagged one ear already and we're waiting to see on the other. My...
  16. Handmade Poplar Trivets

    So I needed a little project to keep me busy and I needed to use up some scrap wood that I had lying around. I was sitting at dinner one night and noticed that all the trivets looked terrible and some were even broken, so I went on YouTube and finally found an easy way to make them using a...

I had...
  18. Good ol' Fashioned Pizza Peel

    Finally decided to get around to making a pizza peel. It was a pretty fun project, i have yet to make a pizza yet and try it out. I started off with 1/2" maple and walnut, ripped them and glued them up. Shaped the front, the handle and the back just for looks. Then i finished it with a homemade...
  19. Quick little Fox cars...

    Over the last couple of years I have made probably a dozen of these, normally out of walnut or maple. I recenlty purchased some purple heart and cherry, and made 8 of these little buggers with the scraps I had left over from another project (okay, so I bought a little extra). I got a little...
  20. I almost lost my marbles!

    I like this box! I think it looks pretty good, and I've never seen one quite like it. It started with an idea… build a box for a brother in law that collects marbles. It's about 12' x 9" x 4" high. I made smallish compartments to hold some of his favorites. It doesn't really allow them...
