  2. Tumbling block coasters

    These were made from extra pucks from my wife's cutting board (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/94418) where I was having trouble with gaps at glue up. So these extra pucks became coasters with curly Maple borders. The beauty of woodworking, what doesn't work out for one project works out for...
  3. Many Candles

    Made these as some small gifts for some co-workers. These are some very quick projects, and I'm happy with how they came out. I borrowed from a number of designs I've been seeing, so a "Thanks" is in order to all those who have posted before with something similar. Quick Rundown: 1 -...
  4. Artist Box

    I saw this idea on Lumberjocks and thought it would be a great project to make for a friend. Something that is fairly compact that she can take around and setup to paint when she feels inspired. The box is actually made of poplar. I chose poplar simply because I like the look of it, its easy...

    Here are some new stoppers for quickie Christmas presents. These sell pretty well. Still looking for the best shape. I like the one that looks like the old train smoke stack (far left) the best. The laminated ones come from Penn State Industries. Bob Nov 25 2009

  16. Wood Grain Alcohol

    So I have been having fun with my laser engraver (see previous posts). Every year at work we do a white elephant gift exchange. I work with Marines so some years half of the gifts are some form of alcohol. SO I thought it would be fun to slip a dummy round in the bunch. I started doing it a...

  20. Crafting with the Kids

    Disclaimer - there is not that much woodworking involved in this project, but I still want to post it to share the memories.
