  1. White Oak Desk organizer

    A friend of mine gave me a load of 8/4 White Oak that had been felled from a friend of a friends family estate. It is beautiful and covered in wood worm holes. I made this as a thank you modeled after the Cedar Desk organizer he had admired. The box is dovetailed with rabbets for the inset...
  2. New saw till

    Hi guys! I wanted to share one of my latest projects. My new saw till. I gave myself a couple of challenges on this project. First I could only use the material I had " rescued " from the curb in my neighborhood. Therefore nothing but the glue and finish were bought for this project. Second...
  3. Anarchist's Traveling Tool Chest

    My primary hand tool storage area had been the lower shelf under my workbench. As my meager hand tool collection began to grow slowly, I felt the tools needed a better home. I read Christopher Schwarz's "The Anarchist's Tool Chest" about a year ago, and loved the philosophy presented, as well...
  4. Heart Shaped Box

    Just a heart shaped box for Valentines day to give to my wife, along with a necklace. Because I'm such an amazing procrastinator, this was finished on the 14th about 1 AM…should have planned ahead a little better since the linseed oil finish isn't…well…finished! I'm quite ashamed of my lid...
  5. Oak Ring

    This is a small wood ring I made a little while ago for a friend. I made the ring with all hand tools, cutting out the hole with a coping saw and sanding down to the correct size. I wanted to make something that wasn't just a round ring but also a simple design. I used some scrap Oak wood that I...
  6. Kitchen island table thingy

    This tall table, kitchen island unit thingy was made mostly by hand, including ripping the 2" thick legs by hand. It's made from recycled oak (old church pews), which meant lots of planing to take the original varnish off. I learnt a couple of valuable lessons during this project (my first...
  7. Bathroom Projects (Floating Shelves and Medicine Cabinet)

    I renovated my bathroom and I took the opportunity to make a couple custom fixtures for it. Floating Shelves: Since the studs were in non-ideal areas (and I wasn't about to attach them to drywall alone), I decided to attach the shelves to pieces of plywood that span the studs, and attach those...
  8. Dovetail Saw

    The starting point for this saw was a cheap Two Cherries saw. Then handle I made is from some very old (decades most likely) Cherry. Resources I used: - Paul Sellers blog post about the Two Cherries dovetail saw. - Blackburn tools handle template What I did: 1) Use two hammers to reduce the...
  9. Dowel Cutter

    I decided to try to come up with a way to make dowels (mainly for drawboring) without buying any more tools (!), and of course using only the few hand tools I have so far. A quick search turned this up: https://woodgears.ca/dowel/making.html I decided to try something similar, minus the power...
  10. Laundry Table

    For my first attempt at fine woodworking I decided to make a table for next to our washing machine. It would be hidden away in the basement and really didn't need to be particularly high quality, so even if I did a horrible job it would still serve its purpose just fine. It proved a great...
  11. Some shop made marking tools

    I've found marking gauges to be akin to clamps. Sometimes I can never have too many. I decided to try and make a wedge lock gauge instead of my usual cam lock gauges. I like these a lot more. Easy to set, even easier to micro-adjust. I also made a larger panel gauge in a similar style The...
  12. Anchor Necklace Pendants

    These are some necklaces that I recently made for a coworker of mine. She asked me to make 4 anchors for her and her friends. I'm not sure what type of wood it is since I got it from a scrap box of cutoffs. I cut and shaped the pieces by hand and used a drill for the holes where the leather is...
  13. Reclaimed Woodworking Buoy Art an Easy Woodworking Art Project with Hand Tools

    Here is the build video: Here is an art piece I made from some wood I found at an estate sale and a buoy that was found on the beach. The wood is mahogany. I used all hand tools for the joinery and milling. I used a stanley #3, grizzly #5, and stanley #6. The finishing was done with a card...
  14. A Roubo workbench

    This bench has been a long time in the making. A combination of LJ bench projects and Christopher Schwarz books gave me the information and motivation to take this on. I tried to use mostly hand tools. I did use a power planer for stock dimensioning but after that it was exclusively hand tools...
  15. Cedar Box

    I created this box at the request of a coworker. I was given specifications for size and a "natural" design, the rest was up to me. This box will serve as an urn so I kept the design simple and chose cedar for the warm tones. I also chose simple rabbited joinery. The top and bottom are book...
  16. Star Wars Wall Clock

    After cutting to length and gluing it up, I also passed it thru the planer. Just to get a nice flat panel. This was my first time cutting this much detail at the band saw. I didn't get very smooth cuts… If there is a bright center to woodworking, this is the process furthest from… And 2+...
  17. The New Traditional Woodworker-Project #4-Winding Sticks

    Lately, I've had my nickers in a twist. That's English for having a hissy fit. And fit I had, when I resawed some quarter-sawn oak-lovely rays and all-only to "flatten" it. But not really, because it had some wicked twist. Crap. Guess I'm going to have to make some winding sticks. Oh yeah. And...
  18. Tool Box

    I finished this box about 6 months ago, I had realized that if you give me an empty shoebox, I will fill it with tools, If you give me an empty warehouse, I will fill it with tools. This got frustrating when I went to do an install and had to bring six different shoe-boxes just to be sure i...
  19. Step Stool and Toddler Bench

    There were a few things I wanted to accomplish with this project and I found a perfect design in an old Popular Woodworking book by Glen Huey. My daughter is just about 18 months old now and loves to 'help' out in the kitchen, but isn't quite tall enough to reach the sink or counter, so she was...
  20. Reimagined handle for flush cut saw

    If you've caught other things I've posted here recently you'll know I've been replacing the crap plastic handles on my hand saws with good wooden ones. This one I'm kinda hot and cold about, I love the handle, shaped to fit my hand perfectly. However my weakness is hand riveting and one of the...
