  1. 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...
  2. Maple Pencil Holder

    This is the last maple pencil holder that I finished up last week. I built a set of 10 pencil holders over the last few months. I put out a video episode on these pencil holders back in April.
  3. 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...
  4. Texas Pendants - Gorilla Glue finish

    Mesquite, 1/8" thick, 1" tall by 1" wide. Gorilla polyurethane glue finish buffed with steel wool. Made my daughter a Texas necklace pendant a couple years ago which she wore a lot but unfortunately lost. Preparing for a vacation she asked for a replacement so she could show her state loyalty...
  5. From Pallet to Coffee Table

    This project was dual purpose, 1-make a coffee table for my grandma-in-law, 2-enter in the glue only contest. I also like to reuse wood, so I found a nice pine pallet up the road (about a 5'x12' pallet). There was a lot of work and some new trial and errors I had to go through. Every piece of...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. Our Gorilla "Great Outdoor" coffee table / stair board

    This coffee table was designed for our motor home. It stores nicely next to the bench during travel. It covers the hole of the stairs during the night, so none of the children will fall into this cavity. And when we are set up at a campground we use it as coffee or dining table. The NON-wood...
  9. Oak and Italian tile Bird House

    This is a contender as an entry in the Gorilla Glue contest. I've got another birdhouse in progress in the basement and another, rather ambitious one on the back burner, inspired by a (I don't even know what to call it… a mini brick and mortar wall in a tree at the Roger Williams Zoo in Rhode...
  10. Circular Balcony-Gorilla Glue

    This is a circular balcony I built for our home. The facia board was made by re-sawing a 2X8 cedar board into 3/8" thick pieces and re-gluing them using Gorilla Glue on a temporary form. All pieces of the railing were CAD drawn then transferred to the actual workpieces. The top railing was...
  11. Wind-Works

    Hopefully the judges will go ape over these gorilla gadgets..a couple whirly toys for the outside. First up is a new creation of mine, at least I've never seen one…A new style of weathervane. There is a little of the summer contest left on this one too as it is all recycled. Some leftover...
  12. Lowboy and excavator

    The semi and lowboy were constructed a few years ago with the intent of building a dozer or excavator to pair with it. This past January I started fabricating the track section for the Toys and Joys excavator. The track pads are cherry with the rest of the excavator being white hard maple. My 60...
  13. Wood Scroll Saw Sign

    I made a wood sign for my workshop using a scroll saw. The pieces are cut from a single 1/2" pine board and glued onto a backer board with Titebond II wood glue. The backer board is a regular piece of 1/4" plywood that is painted with flat black spray paint. I used blue tape to mask off a...
  14. Clyde

    Elm hollow form measures approximately 9 inches tall by 4.5 inches wide. All comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
  15. From Legos to Wood

    Legos are great for prototypes. Although I did use the Lego version for 2.5 years; not sure if it still qualifies as a "prototype". Cell phone holder, maple and walnut. "No, actually it's a highly sophisticated inter-locking brick system" - The Lego Movie
  16. New to me Air Filter, NNBTG

    Here is my entry in the nothing new but the glue Challenge, an air filter. I have had the pallet for about 9 months ( it came to me as a bonus, under my new lathe), and a friend gave me the squirrel cage fan about 2 months ago. This challenge was just what I needed to get off my butt and put...

    This is a desk i built for my parents christmas present to replace the crappy glue and sawdust one haha. 36"x20" cherry center biscuited from a single 10" wide board. with a 1"x2" walnut border and walnut legs. everything is a 1/2" round over. General finish water based varnish gloss 7 coats...
  18. Outdoors Bench Woodworking Contest

    I made a brace (Couple of these) benches for use outdoors. They are both the same, its just that the first bench has been outside weathering for about 12 months. It is darker than the pictures show. The arms because of the end grain have darkened the most. The plans came from Wood Magazine...
  19. Queen Headboard of Recycled Pallets

    I had been looking for a headboard for some time, and after looking around and noticing the prices I figured I would go ahead and carry out a project that I'd seen online for some time: a headboard made of reused wooden pallets! The thumbnail obviously shows the finished project, and the second...
  20. Wind Chimes

    Here is my entry into the Gorilla Glue Challenge. For some time DW has wanted a set of Wind Chimes and this was the perfect time to build them. I searched the web and found these plans online at Lowes - http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=howTo&p=HomeDecor/WindChimes.html Materials: Birch...
