  1. Greenwood candle stick holder

    Made this out of some random green wood I found. Sealed it with a golden oak stain. I dried it in the microwave, multiple 30 second intervals. It worked out pretty well.
  2. Fibonacci Gauge & Coping Sled

    After browsing LJ's archives and watching TheWoodWhisperer's "Gadget Station" series, I decided to build a couple of things for the shop. As a Mechanical Engineer, I'm fascinated by Fibonacci and am in the process of designing our dining room table according to the Golden Mean. Did I mention...
  3. Hand Crafted Cow Horn Powder Horns Teaching a class at John Campbell Folk school Scrimshaw Art

    Project: Powder Horns Materials: Wood, Cow Horn, Fine Silver, Brass, Steel, Ink, Wax The four horns shown in the first 6 profile photos are ones I built, three before the class, and a fourth during the class as a demonstration piece. FOR SALE: These three powder horns are for sale, you can...
  4. Long Outdoor Knife

    This is a knife that I made using a metal ruler, wood (obviously), hot glue, a metal wire, and 550 paracord. I cut the metal using my dads chop saw and carved the handle myself. I then drilled through the metal and wood so I could put metal wire to hold it in place and then used glue between the...
  5. Pooch Planter

    Here is another of my 'Heck, Gimme that picture; I'll build it' projects. My wife showed me a catalog and into the shop I went. Using simple pine and no better picture than you have here, out came a Golden Retriever planter. Here is 'Goldie' next to his favorite hydrant. He takes in water but...
  6. Ryczka/Golden Ratio Stool made from reclaimed wood

    Today I decided to build a Ryczka Stool using the wood I'd salvaged from a pallet the other day. First off, I needed to work out how big it should be. I'd recently read about the "Golden Selection" ratio, a ratio of sides that together form, what is considered visually most pleasing. The ratios...
  7. Paint Stir Stick Fibonacci Gage

    I was inspired by David's blog posting titled Furniture Designs #1: Fibonacci gauge. I did a few a^2+b^2=c^2 calculations, and created an image in Sketchup. I figured the quickest and cheapest way to construct this would be with paint stir sticks. I placed my printout over the sticks, and...
  8. Golden Mean (Fibonacci) Gauges for the Future

    I built one of these for myself a couple years ago, and it seems like I'm always reaching for it. Whether planning the dimensions of a box, a bowl, where to locate dividers or door handles, this gauge takes the guesswork out and gives you the answer without having to do the math. I recently...
  9. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have been looking into and learning more about the Fibonacci Sequence to incorporate into my project designs. I typically use sketchup to make scale drawings of my projects and to provide my wife with a little "visual" so she can either approve…or not… I got to wondering and looking around...
  10. Blogs
    48 years ago... I changed... ... from being a single man to a Married man! Spent most of the day trimming trees (wood) and Ivy… Tonight, we are going to a restaurant called The Red Lobster… ... I will probably have Snow Crab Legs… she will probably have Lobster (my guess)... It sure...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey guys, I am looking at getting the below machines from Grizzly. They are giving me a little static right now about pricing and discounts, and before I pull the trigger I was just wondering if anyone has had any very recent purchases with Grizzly and what that experience was like. I read a...
  12. Scrollsawing
    I picked up a delta ss250 scroll saw on a whim yesterday. It just jumped in my car, I swear. I've never even touched a scroll saw until I picked it up. I think I read somewhere on here about some pointers and advice specific to this saw… Is FD the consensus for blades? Pretty sure the ss250...
