  1. Hexagonal Picnic Table

    I was at the cabin the other day, & thought, maybe I should show this on Lumberjocks. Although it's mostly made of steel, it has a little bit of wood on it. I seen a picture of one like this, so I kind of copied the design from the picture. The one I copied was round, but i'm crazy about...
  2. Hexagonal Coffee Table

    I call this my 5-year table. You see, back in 2003, just out college, a buddy of mine sent me a link to a Craigslist ad of a guy offering free cherry wood. The tree had been just cut down and anyone who could haul it away could take it; it was a pretty big tree. I drove down in my mom's minivan...
  3. hexagonal pedestal dish

    This was cut from alder and black walnut. I worked at it on and off for about 3 weeks. By far the hardest and most frustrating part was getting the bevels cut accurately, as this was done on the scroll saw, which is great for intricate cuts and curves, but not accurate straight lines. The edges...
  4. The Hexagon (remote control organizer)

    Apologies to Chuck Norris After seeing several hexagonal projects on LJ recently, I wanted to expand my comfort zone beyond rectangles. I've made several styles of desk/remote control organizers in the past and they have been popular sellers. Why not make a hexagonal organizer? The basics...
  5. Reclaimed Redwood Hexagonal Coffee Table set

    Trio of hexagonal tables (I call them "Hextables") made from reclaimed redwood from old buildings that were being demolished. I used a ShopBot and V-Carve Pro to cut the hexagons and spiral grooves. Then I used the router table to create edge molding. back to the table saw to cut the edges and...
  6. Hex straight Box

    A couple of months ago I started to make some mosaics. I watched http://lumberjocks.com/WoodMosaics Robin Tucker´s pedal saw with its fence in Youtube, and imitated in my sled. Didn´t know he posted a great tutorial in LJ, but I wasn´t aware of LJ at that time. A shame of me!! Made a bunch of...
  7. Compound Hex box ? Why not....

    Why not? After finishing the Hex Straight Box, I started to look into compound angles. How to calculate them is the challenge. So we started a competition among my wife Ines, my son Gonzalo, and myself. They will be trying to develop the formulae to calculate the angles while I be looking into...
  8. #29 candy box

    In this box, I noticed the problems of including mechanism in hexagonal pattern, so, the box haven´t any :-( In this box, I confirmed the problems of joinery in 30 degrees, especially when you´re not an expert woodworker. In this box, I made my last attempt to work inlaying veneer. I´ve seen...
  9. Hexagonal Plywood Box

    Box number 30 in my recent box series. This is number 13 in my Adventures into Shape. This box is an experiment built solely from plywood that I began in late June but set aside while making some commissioned pieces. Some of it was very successful and parts of it were a learning process. It is...
  10. Hexagonal Storage Unit

    I decided to try and build this for my 4 years old son, I really wanted to try building something that had some angles and looked different so I tried this. To be honest its not my best work as my miter saw and table saw didn't cut the angles exactly they were 1 to 2 degrees off every time, but...
  11. Jigs & Fixtures
    Over the weekend I picked up the Rockwell Jaw horse used as well as the the Jaw Stand for 100 for the both of them. Setting up the Jaw was a breeze, figuring out the plywood extension was a no brainer, but there seems to be an another piece and every where I looked online it doesn't show this...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I did a fair bit of searching, and I couldn't find this specific topic. I've been searching for a place to get small embossed metal logos to label my woodworking projects (like the ones the MTM Wood guy uses on his cutting boards as shown attached). I found some questionable websites that...
  13. Jigs & Fixtures
    I used to make all my jigs and in the process use almost all of my time making them. There is certainly a level of satisfaction in saying that is a jig well made. But, it certainly cuts down on the time to make projects. This is leading me more and more to buy a jig rather than build it...
