  1. Blogs
    I have finished up one of a planned 2 workbenches. This one is made of maple 3/4" plywood (mostly) and I skinned the surface with formica. It's on casters and was built to be just under the height of my table saw. One end hold my measuring tools, the other will hold my glues, drill bits, and...
  2. Three Band Saw Boxes

    December, 2011-It was nice to have some free time over the holidays to do some woodworking. These are three different band saw boxes. Each has two drawers, and one has a secret drawer which you can see in the last three photos. All drawers are lined on their bottoms with felt. All boxes are...
  3. Curved moldings for Senior Center

    We were brought in to make all of the curved parts - crown molding, panel molding, and curved S4S for the entertainment room at a local senior center. The first two pictures show the some of the curved crown in place, as well as some of the panels. Some of the panel moldings are compound...
  4. Whimsical Band Saw Box From Scraps

    February, 2010-I still had some red T-shirt die left over, and of course some pine cut-offs to glue up into a band saw box blank, so here it is. This was my first time putting feet on my boxes. I think the feet are a little too big for this box, but maybe that adds to the whimsy of it. The...
  5. Larger Band Saw Box

    June, 2013-This one is "larger" because it's the largest I've made so far. I've made wider, and also taller, but this is the first that I have not been able to slice off the back under my 14-inch band saw (without a riser block, which I do not have). So to make it work I glued up some boards...
  6. Dovetail Boxes

    After being motivated by many LJs I decided to try my attempt at doing a double double dovetail box. Several attempts later and with some sage advise from LJ Odie, I was able to come up with a couple acceptable attempts. The box on the right is a double dovetail box. I had made one once...
  7. Another Christmas Gift

    This is a pen and letter opener set for my wife's other boss. I think she will like it. It is made using a Sculpted Arbor kit from Penn State Industries and a purple "Aquapearl" blank. This material cuts really easy and doesn't seem to chip as easy as some of the other synthetic blanks.
  8. Finally Completed: My First Cutting Booooarrrddddd!

    Wow, my first end grain cutting board (and first cutting board overall,) was much more of an endeavor than I thought it was going to be! I knew there were going to be several glue-ups, but there were several more than that, as I had to remove wind checks from the maple, and also rebalance the...
  9. Wooden Hair Clips

    First, I started by re-sawing some cutoffs and turning blocks I had around the shop. This was mulberry, walnut, sycamore, pine and some dogwood. I passed each piece through the planer to give it a good gluing surface. Then arranged the pieces and glued them together. After the glue dried I...
  10. Glass Bottle Bird Feeder

    It's not an overly complex project and I do think that it really adds to the look of the yard. You will need some rot resistant wood (Cypress in this case) and a glass bottle. You should pick out the bottle ahead of time, as it will dictate the dimensions of the feeder. Ours was $1 at the local...
  11. Glue Up Box

    I built this years ago but I thought I would share my glue up box with you. I was just learning how to use the Incra Fence system and these were some of my first half blind dove tails. Not sure who else even still uses these things. Made from some scrap 3/4" poplar that was glued up for the...
  12. Ash wood desk

    I've been working on this desk build for months now and I'm so happy to finally be done! First I built the 3 base cabinets from 3/4 ply finished with Polo Blue cabinet paint. Then I spent a few days cleaning out my home office and making space… And finally got to work on the desk top! This 7+...
  13. Set of oak craftsman influenced chairs

    My first chairs. My first chair commission. Delivered them to a client decided it's not what she wants and not the style she wants. So I will be remaking them(she was looking at the pretty 3D drawing not the blueprint with dimensions). On my behalf she should have given me they or intended...
  14. Scrap Wood Pole Lamp

    I was asked for some Scrap wood ideas. I had made this from Handy Man Magazine years ago. It is done in 3 parts and be patient with the glue up and read along. Adjust your tools and wood accordingly. this base is 12 in by 1.5 with 5 balls underneath for stability and room for the cord. There...
  15. A Living Room Table

    It's as much metalwork as it is woodwork, but I've been here for so long and looking at all of your posts that I had to add something of value. My wife asked me for a distressed living room table and showed me a few pictures of what she wanted. I was able to get really close and she is very...
  16. end grain cutting board

    Another design I've been mulling over for a while. Finally had time to see it through. 11.75"W x 15.5"L x 1.5" thick.
  17. Valet with Phone Charger Station

    Hi all, been some time since I last posted and this seemed like a good project to put up. This mens valet/ charging station has a dovetailed zebrawood/ mahogany carcass, and the two stash cubbies are made from a glue-up that was sitting around for a while. I bisected the glue-pu and mortise and...
  18. Santa Bottlestopper

    I came down with some type of mega-cold or something the past week and haven't done much carving or anything else! I've got some clay models ready for another project, but I missed just carving! So I made a Santa, to start getting stocked up for Christmas. This guy looked a little tipsy, so I...
  19. Decorative Bedroom Wall Shelf with Crown Molding

    January, 2010-Another job completed on the "honey-do" list. My wife saw a photo (insert in first picture) of a nice shelf over the bed and she asked me to make one. Although it is a basic project, there were a couple of choices and challenges. First challenge was the size. This shelf is...
  20. Weekend project: Wine glass holder

    My mother asked me to make these for her. They are being used as door prizes at a event, that my home towns volunteer fire department is having. They are made of curly maple and finished with shellac.
