  1. Wood Veneer Business Cards With My Bandsaw

    Wanted to try cutting my own veneers to print my business cards on. They aren't exact size but I'm happy with the outcome. I leave a natural edge when I print on cedar and of course they smell great. Softer woods work extremely well, hardwoods brake apart.
  2. New and Improved Shop Dust Pan

    Well, I had to improve my shop dust pan design and add a woodworking theme to it. What else but a hand saw? and a rip saw to boot. Check my previous project for more detail.
  3. 14" Backsaw

    Here is my new 14" crosscut saw. It is filed at about 14tpi. The handle is made from a piece of walnut crotch. All of the metal components (saw plates, folded brass back and brass saw nuts) are from Two Guys In A Garage. The saw template is from Blackburn Tools This was a fun little project...
  4. My first sawhorses.

    Some sawhorses. The first wood working project I have undertaken independently. I needed something simple and straight forward that I could build with the tools I have right now-a framing hammer, and an inexpensive handsaw. Enter the 14 Minute Sawhorses. When I saw these plans I swooned...
  5. Not so successful bench

    I just thought I would post this project in response to a blog about inviting criticisms of our piece ( What did you say about my project??? ) and my suggestion that perhaps we ought to post some of less than ideal projects so we can discuss things that didn't work , mistakes and their recovery...
  6. more saws and a smoother

    As you can see from the pics I have been pretty busy lately. A few of these saws went to LJ's and a few are for me ;) From first to last the handles are sapele, bubinga, padauk, and sapele again. I've been working hard to develop my handle templates and improve my quality and speed of...
  7. Hall Table

    I recently completed this table loosely based on a design called a "library desk" and the hidden drawer idea came from a design on the cover of Popular Woodworking a few months back. The total build time was roughly 8 hours. Finished with minwax 225 and two coats of a gloss poly.
  8. Handful of Shop-Made Tools

    This last week, I made a handful of homemade shop tools. Starting at the the top left and going clockwise: a marking gauge [walnut], a couple magnetic dovetail saw guides (1:8 and 1:6) [cherry and oak], and a 90 degree magnetic saw guide [walnut and oak].
  9. Orchid Green house for my wife

    what happens when an orchid hobby grows too big to keep it inside? ????: "Honey, can you make me a green house for my orchids?" And what do we do? Of course we build it! Because that's what we do and that's what we like to do. Ready and closed. Strict no-entry policy for iguanas At the time...
  10. Holder for "glass beads making" mandrels

    Made out of Willow, Pine and Meranti. No powertools used. Glass beads are made on a stainless steel mandrel and are used in different sizes. I made this for a local artist, in line with her workshop.
  11. Frame Saw

    Blade is 18" long, came from a Butcher's meat saw. Wood was left over Maple. Tension is via a 5/16" all-thread, one end sits in a mortise, after it had been bent over. Rest of the ends are by wing nuts. Saw is a 9ppi crosscut. Had to buy the all-thread, a washer and a wing nut….rest...
  12. New batch of handsaws

    I have been quite busy lately making saws among other things. Two of these saws are going to BigRedKnothead and one of them went to JordanP The panel saw is a 24 inch 8 ppi crosscut saw with a padauk handle modeled after a Disston No. 7. The plate is .032in 1095 spring steel. After that is the...
  13. Handsaw Handle Repair

    I have a Disston D8 that was needing to get restored and put back to use. This saw took the normal work, clean the blade and sharpen, but when it came to the handle I found myself holding back on replacing the handle due to a broken horn. The D8 handles are different than others due to no slot...
  14. Cigar Box Guitar

    Hey, fellow woodworkers! I recently completed my first cigar box guitar. The process was very enjoyable, and I hope to make several more! (It's addicting!) Parts: - Cigar box Picked up a handful from a cigar shop for a few bucks each. They come in various shapes and sizes, which is...
  15. Backless Poplar Bookcase

    About 3+ years ago, I decided to build a bookcase for my daughter's 10th birthday. At that time, I didn't have a planer and didn't know any better, so after making a little sketch plan, I went to the store (either HD or Lowes) and bought some poplar. As I recall, I paid about $220 for it...
  16. Sycamore handled RIP saw

    I bought a $2 Rustie of a saw. checked the Medallion. Some company called WS & M Co. Hmmm, not a Disston. It had some of the biggest, non-pruning saw, teeth i have ever seen. I COULD refurbish it into a user of a rip saw, except for the old handle. In another time, someone had...
  17. Handsaw Rack

    My handsaws where scattered all over the garage, it was a bummer every time I needed to cut something, so why not make a handsaw rack? Its basicaly three pieces joined together, the joinery wasnt my best but I sanded all down at the end. I opened two holes at my new workbench, which was made...
  18. 9" Dovetail Saw for the 2014 LumberJock Saw Swap

    This was my entry for the 2014 LumberJock Saw Swap (ErikF had inspired me to build a saw even before the saw swap began. You should check out his blog tutorial on the tools for making your own saw from scratch.) I quickly discovered that building a handsaw almost entirely from scratch was...
  19. 20-inch Panel Saw

    It has been a little while since I have posted a project, so here is a recently completed saw build. 20-inch panel saw, filed cross cut, with a curly maple handle patterned after a Disston D-7 panel saw. I have wanted a Lie-Nielsen panel saw for some time (actually a pair of them in rip and...
  20. A Bed For Dexter

    Our little big dog Dexter - Part Great Dane, part Boxer, needed a place to sleep as his old floor mattress was just not cutting it. We had to replace the sofa in the living room so I decided to keep the cushions for Dex. Laid them on the floor floor, when he jumped on them to lay down, they...
