  1. Firestarters from Old Candle Wax and Sawdust

    I posted a blog entry on making these and naturally someone asked for pics. I decided to post this as a project with instructions and pics. Hope this is useful to someone! SUPPLIES LIST: Wax (old candles work great) Sawdust Something to melt wax in (double-boiler method is best and...
  2. Coffee table

    This is one of those "quick 'n dirty"- projects, but it turned out pretty nice so I thought I'd post it here. A few birch dowels and a couple of screws to secure the top, and hey presto, you got yourself a coffee table. It's made from birch and measures about 860mm wide, 550mm deep and 440mm...
  3. Lidded Box...second attempt

    We lost some limbs off a tree in the back yard and being a woodcarver of sorts I saved some pieces for a wood spirit or two. Years past and the spousal unit gave me a lathe last Christmas and since then I have been trying to learn the skills. Here is my second attempt at a lidded box (we won't...
  4. Kitchen Table

    We have a rather small kitchen with storage that just didn't quite meet my wifes needs. After some diliberation on what she wanted, an arguement with the kitchen as to why it couldn't expand on it's own and make more room, this is what I came up with. (Shhhh, don't tell anyone but I had...

  6. Bowl

    I will name this one HEARTBREAK so befoer you make a positive comment take a closer look. I thought I would finish turning this bowl even though it had a couple stress cracks from drying. It was a 12 inch diameter so maybe I left a little too much shell. I hated to throw it away so filled the...
  7. Farm Style Table

    This is another Farm Style Table. My lesson is to show simple joints here and a assemble reassemble point for moving and a table top reuse. The legs for this are from 2 by 3 stock which are cheaper but measure 2 and a half so a little less bulky leg still with the character of construction...

    Today I was at Lowes looking for some small sheets of plywood for a few scroll saw projects that I'd like to create. The projects that I'd like to start working on call for 1/8" thick birch plywood, which Lowes does carry in small sheets (2'x2', 2'x4', etc.) The problem I noticed was that most...
  11. Marketplace Classifieds
    At the end of June, Sawtooth Ideas, who had been selling my plans online for me, closed up shop. Since then, I have been working to get my own shopping cart set up. I finally got it all live over the weekend, and my PDF plans are once again available for instant purchase and download! I have...

  15. Focus on the Workspace
    A few years ago a few LumberJocks convinced me to give Baltic Birch, butt joints, glue, and staples a try. I've built 33 of these drawers that are between 3 and 5 years old, and all have held up perfectly well. Most surprisingly, dust on the slides has not been an issue. Anyway, I did a video...
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects

    I built a solid, vertical grain fir table top in my shop a couple of weeks ago. It was 7' x 42" wide so it was quite large. 3×3" legs with a short 1 1/2" apron and a 1 1/2" thick top as per the customers requests. They wanted a parsons-styled table. I secured the top to the frame/apron by...
