  1. Projects 2 x 72 grinder orange beast

This is a kit in that I ordered from Brian House of HousemadeUS, He had the flat work CNC'd as well the raw square tube available as well. He has recommended vendors for...
  2. Wood Magazine Grinder stand

    As part of cleaning and organizing my shop I built a stand for my bench grinder. I used the plans from the May 2011 issue of Wood magazine as a starting point. I altered the design a little by moving the center support back and added a couple shelves. The top is a little bigger than the plans. I...
  3. Homemade Vari-grind Jig

    The Oneway Wolverine Grinding jig is a must for grinding your bowl gouges but I didn't want to pay $55 for one. When I was at the Baltimore Woodworking show, I took pictures and measurements of the one they had one display and tried to replicate the parts/dimensions. It holds my gouges tightly...
  4. Grinder Stand

    Just finished this stand for my slow-speed grinder and Oneway sharpening jig. The stand is on wheels and is very stable.
  5. Buffing Station

    I built this pedestal for my old General grinding arbor from plans from the November 1971 issue of Popular Mechanics (found it here). Arbor and motor were acquired at a tag sale, the wheels came off an old grill, wiring came from my supplies. Purchased electrical conduit and brackets for the...

  8. Juniper Log Burl Floor Lamp, Turquoise Inlay

    Burled Juniper Floor Lamp we wanted to share with you. This was a very fun project. I really enjoy the inlay process although it is time consuming and you need patience. I like to sit in the quiet with my tweezers and inlay away. Very relaxing,,,,,, until you stand up and all your muscles are...
  9. #2 Pine & Cottonwood End Table with Turquoise Inlay

    This is the matching end table to the other pine end table. The sizes are close to the same. The table tops have been sealed with Bullseye Sanding Sealer and Satin Polyurethane. And the bases were finished with Satin polycrylic

  11. New Dual Grinder Stand

    O.K., so it's not ALL wood . . but mostly!! I have had an issue with my bench grinder taking up too much space on my smallish work bench. And, any time I needed a de-burring wheel or flap disc, I had to pull that machine out of a cabinet and put it on the workbench too, taking up even more...
  12. Grinder tool rest

    A shop made tool rest to replace the tiny metal thing that came with the grinder. It's an adjustable version of one i found in one of Krenov's books. Tilts and moves forward and back as needed. Locks into place with hex keys. Both the tool rest and the grinder are attached to a small board...
  13. Musical Chair

    So here is my sculpted "Musical Chair". I have really been drawn to the asymmetrical, organic line of Art Nouveau lately and have applied some of what I've learned into a number of recent pieces. This chair is a large studio chair made from ribbon mahogany and tulip poplar. Note that the tulip...
  14. the only thing saving this project is the beauty of the wood itself

    We cut this lovely hunk of walnut off of the log we use to sit on by the fire outside (not to be confused with the one we sit on by the fire inside It is hurried and full of mistakes and fillers like all of this year's Christmas projects, but… (better photos would be nice, but i didn't get a...
  15. Shelf for Shop Grinder

    The stand from Northern Tool wasn't making it for my older than the hills Craftsman grinder. Because it was not bolted down, it would vibrate around when used. I made this wall unit so I could sweep under it. I would like to add a drawer later on under the shelf for misc. tools. The shelf...
  16. Auction Table

    We have a friend that is in auctioneer, this table would not sell at one of his auctions, and he purchased it and asked us if we would give it a little care. Susie and I have been working on it in her spare time. We try to help pieces like this resell, but we can not always put the devoted...
  17. Shop Made Grinder Tool Rest

    I finally got tired of the wimpy little tool rests that came with my grinder, and made this thing. It's much better. Check my blog for more information and a set of detailed drawings for building your own. -Russ
  18. Poor man's "Tormak" sharpener

    Being too cheap to pay the money for a Tormak sharpener I came up with my own version using a Harbor Freight water wheel grinder-sharpener and some junk I had in the shop. The junk was a piece of medical equipment with numerous horizontal and vertical adjustments that I found back in the 1970's...

  20. Angle Grinder Storage

    I usually start each year off by trying to figure out how to become a bit more organized in the shop. I am starting this year off with my angle grinder. I had some left over 1×6, 1×2, and sheet metal and got start. This was meant to be a somewhat permanent fixture that was going to get screwed...
