  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey everybody! Look at what my cousin just gifted me. The RAS I first learned on in…. 1985? Needs tuned, but still seems to work just fine. What’s everyone think? I’m pretty stoked myself!
  2. P-51 Pedal Plane

    This is the first woodworking project that I built in 2009, which I'm hoping fits into this website correctly, as this is also my first project post. I found out that year that I was becoming a father, and I had seen these in model airplane magazines growing up, and decided that when I had kids...
  3. Stick or Hobby Horse

    This project was started by accident. I was walking around the local big box store and I found a round furniture leg that screws into the bottom of a couch or sofa. The gears started spinning and I thought about the growing pile of scrap wood I had in my workshop. Then it hit me: A Hobby...
  4. Harmonica box with mini wood hinges

    This spalted mystery wood (maple?) was found on the bottom of a pallet. There wasn't much of the wood with the splated look, but I had the perfect small project for it. A little box. The sappy part of the story: Years ago my grandfather gave me a harmonica that belonged to his father. Not...
  5. Keepsake Box for my daughter's wedding

    This box was made for my wonderful daughter, Laura, as part of my wedding gift to her. It would be used at the wedding reception to receive cards from guests. It partners with a previous post on LJs http://lumberjocks.com/projects/68224. I wanted it to be something special and it came to me...
  6. Pendulum swinging cradle for Grandbaby

    When my step-daughter and son-in-law surprised us with the wonderful news, I just knew I had to create something special for our coming grand baby. Since they got married, I had thought of building a crib just to have ready for that special day but something better came to mind. I researched...
  7. Solid Cherry Changing Table - Dresser

    I built this changing table for my first grandson. I wanted to make a piece of furniture that would be a family heirloom. My mother loved solid Cherry and almost all of her furniture was built from this beautiful wood. I chose Cherry in honor of her. This was definitely a labor of love and I...
  8. Flexible Flyer - Decorative sled

    The Flexible Flyer..... This is my tribute to the sled that every kid on the block had or wanted when I was young. I started making these a few years ago, and usually the inscription reads "..family name…Flyer". A former colleague has ordered one for each of her grandchildren….I think 9 so...
  9. Solid Cherry Dresser

    I want to start by apologizing for this being a bit lengthy. I have been getting into woodworking over the last couple of years, accumulating tools and experience along the way. My interest has mostly been driven by my children. I wanted them to have nice furniture that they could hand down to...
  10. Grandson's Choo Choo "ALLABOARD" "mostlywhiteoak"

    *At birth our grandson has been obsessed with trains, so the pull-behind engine brings us great joy. He lights up every ride we take while I pull him around the yard with the mower. So in that sense, it's really like a caboose. He is 2 1/2 yrs old and he believes it's a real train engine while...
  11. Husband and Wife Shadowboxes

    I was recently asked to build matching style shadowboxes for a husband and wife retiring from the Coast Guard together. It is always nice to get return business but even better when you get to see continued success for the client. Back in 2014 I was asked to build a hatbox for a newly selected...
  12. Crib for my son - the beginning

    The crib building process started in May of 2007. My son was due the following month in June, but a full time job and at that time working on my Master's degree during the evenings and weekends left me little time to tackle any woodworking projects, let alone my first woodworking project since...
  13. Crib for my son - somewhere in the middle

    Okay… if you read my first post "Crib for my son - the beginning" you have an idea as to what I have and haven't been up to. My son was born in June and I was now consumed with being a father for the first time. Every waking hour I spent as much time as I could with him. At this time school...
  14. Crib for my son - the end

    Last entry for this project. Again, for those of you that have followed the other two posts "Crib for my son - the beginning and somewhere in the middle" I have finally finished crib… well I finished it after he turned six months old and just in time for the new year. I took the last 6 weeks...
  15. Kineti-Go Magnetic Shuffleboard - Magnetic Propulsion technology

    Kineti-Go Magnetic Shuffleboard is a game I invented in 2003. (for those of you familiar with my Kinetic Magnetic Sculptures- the concept for those came from my quest to make a magnetic "trophy" to award at a Kineti-Go tournament in 2004). Though I am a lot busier than I used to be, I still...
  16. Why I Work in Wood

    I'll give the project details first and then get into a little philosophy on this project and my woodworking in general. If the philosophy part doesn't interest you then just stop after the details. This is a toy chest/blanket chest I built for my grandson's first Christmas. He won't be old...
  17. Heirloom Rocking Cradle

    I made this solid beechwood cradle back in August 2011 for a grandchild. I'd never tackled a project like this before and consequently needed to boost my meager woodworking skills considerably to finish this. I learned a lot during the build process, gleaning lots of tips from this Lumberjocks...
  18. Walnut & Rosewood rocking chair

    This sculpted rocking chair is built from 2'' Canadian Black Walnut and Rosewood accented with Ebony plugs. This is a small version ( 5' 5'' - 5' 8'' ). The leg/headrest design borrows from the form of Sam Maloof design, with legs extending like horns and with a more stylized bottom curve to...
  19. Cradle

    I made this cradle for a co-worker and his wife whom were expecting their first child. The cradle is a small heirloom cradle that is RTA and can be stored in a decorative box that I also made for him and his wife. The cradle is mainly red oak but has two small mahogany decorative locking plugs...
  20. My Granddad's Walnut & Ambrosia Maple Twist Cane with Antler Handle, Abalone Inlay, w/ Scrimshaw Art

    This walking cane was made as a gift to my grandfather, so it is not for sale. Welcome Surfers: If you are surfing looking for a special walking cane on the internet, go toward the bottom of this posting where you'll find a list of canes that I have built that are ready to ship immediately...
