  1. Norm's Router Table

    Here's my version of Norm's router table. Its not the best I've seen on here, but I think it will get the job done. The biggest challenge was routing out the top for the plate insert. I spent several hours screwing around with bushings and stuff, only to eventually have the light come on that...
  2. Firstborn Furniture-Rocking Chair

    Completed in 1988. I cranked out this rocking chair shortly after my first child was born. I didn't have many tools back then, but I was still able to make some pretty nice furniture. The rocking chair is solid cherry and was made from a blueprint called the "Bates Gentleman's Rocker." I...
  3. Mini Greenhouse

    I had to quickly make these mini greenhouses to protect some raspberry plants that have budded from an upcoming frost. Although they're not too pretty, they serve their purpose, and I was able to build them very quickly from mostly scraps. It is simply a bottom board with a hole cut in so it...
  4. A chair from a tree

    This is a greenwood chair, following John Alexander's plans (Make a Chair from a Tree). Made from a maple log I got in September. Split with wedges and froe, worked with drawknife. The rungs get kiln dried (I used my oven as a lightbulb kiln and then used the furnace room once it got cold) and...
  5. Little Toy Car

    I built this little guy back in Grade 8 in Woodworking class. That was the best class I ever got to take at school. I did it for three years from Grade 7-9, and then the school I was at from 10-12 didn't have a shop unfortunately. I believe it's all just spruce from some 2×4s. We were...
  6. Spalted Sweetgum Hand Carved Bowl

    Hand carved oblong bowl from spalted sweetgum wood. Carved while green and finished with mineral oil. Sweetgum, which is common in the south eastern United States, is surprisingly easy and fun to carve. I am currently drying out some of the wood from this tree for future projects. So if anyone...
  7. 3D Texas Star (Pecan)

    This star was made as a wedding present for a friend of mine. I've been wanting to make one of these for a long time, but didn't know where to start so I must give a big thanks to Aggie69 and his angle calculating spreadsheet. Once I knew what the pieces needed to look like, I didn't have much...
  8. My style of Band Saw Boxes

    I have been making band saw boxes for just over a month now and I started out copying everyone elses designs. Well, I think I have decided to go with the DR. Seuss theme for my boxes. Or, a furniture design. I think that I am addicted to these little guys. The green one is a Buckeye burl cast in...
  9. Mushroom

    Here are some mushrooms I made awhile back. Everything I had made to that point was given away, but I figured no one would want these so I could hang on to them. These were turned from some green branches we havested from my friends land. Wish I could remember what type of wood they are. I...
  10. Murphy bed (Distressed in Green) | Custom

    This is a Murphy bed that was built in February 2013. It is a style I call the Hudson Bay. It a plain murphy bed with some added moldings. I take some picture frame type molding and miter it into 8 door like boxes. I then add some crown and base. I used oak wood under the green lacquer...
  11. Workbench drawers/storage

    I finally after years of thinking about it, added some drawers/storage under my workbench.
  12. Cherry Bowl

    I turned this little bowl a while back out of Cherry. It was green when I turned it. It came off the (mini) lathe at just under 8". It dried a bit warped, just as green bowl should. I think I like the form it's taken…time will tell. May end up in the woodstove! I didn't have all the...

  14. Cedar Jewelry Box

    A little project I put together for my wife's birthday. Cedar sides with the grain flowing continuously around the miter joints. Maple for the top, bottom, and decorative dovetails. The drawer fronts were cut out with a scroll saw to keep the clearances to a minimum. There are small neodymium...

  16. strap iron ski table

    English walnut on strap iron and skis.
  17. Green Man

    I did this pyrography/wood burning of a Green Man on basswood. I then tried my hand at some low relief carving and really enjoyed doing it. I think the relief made the Green Man stand out. Here is a little information about a Green Man…. A Green Man is a sculpture, drawing or other...
  18. Team Jacob

    after seeing the video and some of the other jocks doing of these I had to do it myself. I thought I would be fun to add the TEAM JACOB thing at the end. This is a 2X4 piece of pine I had lying around. there's a knot that runs right through it and that pretty cool looking. thanks for...

    Bob Wanted # 3 for his Sister so…..... Cherry with Waco Cherry stain and Semi Gloss lacquer on top…except the top was gloss…
  20. Using the garbage for...well....garbage. Challenge 09

    When I read the challenge09 contest description and saw the part about reducing your footprint for earth day, I knew I had the perfect project at the end of the driveway. I recently completed a project with TREX composite and had some left over. Now TREX is pretty green in itself as it uses all...
