  1. Journal Fireplace Surround/Mantel Details: Building the Facade and Outer Shell

    Return to Contents The center portions of the legs and header are frames with inset panels. I resawed and planed a board to yield roughly 3/8" thick stock for the panels. Then I used my router table and a 1/4" straight bit to cut the grooves for the frames in two passes, shifting the fence...
  2. Blogs
    Here's a video I made to teach how to repair outdoor furniture and what glues to use. Outdoor furniture takes a lot of punishment and it's built differently than indoor furniture. I've included 10 tips as well. What are your thoughts or questions? I hope you find this helpful.
  3. Eagle Intarsia

    This project is an instarsia piece called "A Furious Lady!" The pattern is by Annja Starett and is featured in the March 2010 Creative Woodworks & Crafts magazine. The pieces were cut on a scroll saw. The woods are: aspen, balsa, western red cedar, sycamore, lacewood, ebony, yellow heart...
  4. Cherry End Table

    Completed May 2001. This is a Woodsmith project. My Dad and I each made one together in my shop when he came for a visit from out of state. The frames between the drawers are double beaded. There is plenty of storage with two tall drawers. The drawer fronts are curved. The bottom edge...
  5. Bu Do

    This is the newest addition to my custom jewelry boxes. Bu-Do continues this series of sculptures that ties the medallion on top with the drawers. In this piece the drawer fronts and the inlay on top are all cut from a single slab of Spalted Maple lumber. The Honduran Mahogany case and maple...
  6. Curley Maple frame from broken mirror

    Resurecting an old project that I had set aside due to frustration of the frame being twisted, 2 years ago :s got it straigtened and finished, really happy with how it turned out in the end Video:
  7. Go-Rilla Ring

    Well, the contest stated that Gorilla glue must be used. I kinda took it to an extreme. Other than the glue itself, the only other ingredient is different kinds of sawdust. Yeah, sawdust. I had three flavors to choose from. a) Very fine walnut dust from the sander. b) Table saw rip curls of...
  8. recipe box

    This was a recipe box that my wife and I made for our daughter's wedding shower. She laminated all of our favorite family recipies and I made the box for them. The picture on the inside was of the couple when they were engaged and a New York City rooftop view. It was decoapauged from a...
  9. New Saw Handle

    So this was my first saw. I really didn't like the handle, and after ripping the first leg for my cabinet I was less than enchanted with the blade. I resharpened the blade but still didn't like the handle. After scouring the web / YouTube, I decided to update the saw with my own handle...
  10. Mobile Clamp & Finish Accessories Cabinet

    It's always fun to take someone's great idea and fit it to your needs. In this case we felt we could add to "Rockler's Pack Rack" and their "Rockler Pack Rack Top Cap". Problem: Not enough storage space for our needs on the Top Cap for Glue and other accessories. Besides the glue, adhesives...
  11. Very Basic Construction Lumber TV Stand From Douglas Fir 2X

    This was my first attempt at getting commissioned. I don't think I will do it again because I don't think the appreciation is out there for the amount of work it takes to build something like this. I know this for sure based on the low ball request that I must have been out of my mind to agree...
  12. Cutting board

    I made this outta wood and stuffs, wiff ma hans and yah…
  13. Gorilla glue bit rack

    Little things can make a big difference. I didn't have a good system for storing bits for my Dremel tool. This is made from red oak scraps. An hour and a half well spent. I rough cut the blank on the bandsaw, and cleaned it up with a plane. Drill presses are made for jobs like this. I...
  14. Is this a Mallet? Good Question.

    Well here goes. Another project. (Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?) Early this spring I purchased a Jet 1236 Lathe from a friend. He hadn't used it in over 25 years. A bit of cleaning was definitely in order. Besides putting it back together, as it was stored in the upstairs...
  15. First Ever Inlay - Wooden Dog Pendants with Gorilla Glue

    I had no idea what I wanted to do for this challenge when I first heard about it. I just knew that I wanted to start participating more in the community so I'd feel more connected and less like a young person cut off from all the usual wild young person activities. I'm pretty new in general to...
  16. Penny Table

    I took a trashed wine table and turned it into a beautiful piece of furniture that is sure to be valued as a family heirloom. A little bit of finish work, pennies, and glazing does the trick. Years ago I acquired this table from my grandmother. At one time it had a leather top. My first...
  17. Scrolling Chair

    I'd been using a little director's chair style stool to sit on while working at my new scroll saw and had been having such severely aggravated SI joint dysfunction that I couldn't walk for a few days. The solution? No, not take more breaks from the scroll saw, build a better chair! This chair...

  19. Another Hexagonal Shelving Unit

    My mother-in-law love the one I made for my son so she said hey will you make me one as well It's basically the same construction as my original project using 2×4 and using biscuit joints and glue to secure the joint This is a super cheap project but it is challenging if your saws and you're...
  20. Recycled Oak Flooring End Grain Mosaic Butchers Block

    Having an ongoing supply of 1" oak flooring offcuts from a local business, I set about making something truly tactile and special. There are over 16 different processes from start to finish with this project. There is careful selection of timber required to ensure there are no knots in the...
