  1. Reclaimed Wood Bedroom Set

    This was my "great white buffalo", the one project that got me hooked on woodworking. I was required to take a sculpture class in college as part of my art/graphic design major. This was the first time I was exposed to working with wood and woodworking tools. My wife and I were getting married...
  2. curved, straight, wiggly, and different kind of box

    This actually evolved into something better than I had envisioned in my first concept. Hadn't even thought about an expandable tray until well into the project. It was challenging since I had no drawings or plans. Went through more than one pair of templates full of holes and pieces of bent...
  3. Maple and Corian Side Table

    Maple frame with shaker style legs and beaded aprons. Finished with black satin lacquer. Top is witchhazel Corian.
  4. 2 Handed Sword

    Christmas gift for my son, 2 handed sword made from laminated salvaged Walnut and scrap aluminum. The blade is 1/8" thick aluminum, sanded to 120 grit for texture and to help hide future scratches, while the blade is not sharp, it is beveled to give the appearance. The pins are solid aluminum...
  5. Teak and Cypress Ice Chest

    I built two of these chests for the golf course I work at to replace the existing ones which were made of green synthetic material and falling apart. The original idea was to find a couple of pre-made coolers and build the chests around them, but my uncle recently built a platform bed with an...
  6. Butterfly keys make a kite-flying portrait

    Not sure about the wood species of the board (from a pallet). A sharp card scraper seems to work on soft wood, too.
  7. Rigid TS3650 router extension wing

    I was working in my shop and noticed that my Bosch RA1181 table top router was the same as the width as my table saw. So to gain a few feet of space wasted between the table saw fence rails I mounted the router table to the saw, it fit like it was made to my saw, worked out really nice and only...
  8. Tiny Trailer house - framed

    For those without Facebook access, here are a few pictures of my latest project. The framing phase has been completed, as you can see in the first picture. The second picture is the starting point, just a trailer. The third picture is the framing for the floor, along with insulation added...
  9. Maple Footstool

    I found a beautiful piece of figured Maple with some wild pattern and decided to make a foot stool! I used mortise and tenons for the legs and stretchers, with Wenge wedges on the leg stretchers. It was my first attempt at through-tenons - they weren't perfect, but overall I was happy with it...
  10. Sliding Chairs

    This is a project that I saw on a TV woodworking show and thought - hey, I can make one of those. This chair is made of cypress and finished with a light stain.
  11. Segmented Dried Flower Vase

    Hey Folks, JUst finished this vase a few days ago and thought I would post it and see if you all have any complaints. Let me know. 12" tall 7 1/2" dia. 253 pieces. Red Oak and Walnut. Thanks
  12. Fold-up table and ...

    ...and a whole new workshop! Well, not entirely new but moving from a 19'x16' shop to a 16'x9' small single car garage has had some impact on the layout… :-D Hmm where to start… I'd been fed up with the management of the old place. The la(te)st issue came (Long story short I had to pay more than...
  13. Focus on the Workspace
    This is my first post but I've been lurking for quite some time and have gained a lot of helpful tips from you all, so thank you! A few facts first: I live in Michigan, in a manufactured home that has a one car 14×24, attached garage with a sloped roof…ceiling height is about 7'6" on the low...
  14. Focus on the Workspace
    Hey all, just joined and was hoping for some help in finding a solution to my exes heat problem I'm having. Just had a shed built about a year and a half ago. Its 16ft x 15ft x 7ft and is just studs and T1-11 siding. The height i listed does not take into account the roof space. The shed is not...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey All!! About a week ago, I had a tree crash into my shop. It messed up the roof and crushed some pearlings. The overall structure was OK, but now the entire thing leaks like a screen. I'm doing a mass Exodus of tools and wood at the moment. I'm ordering new metal and I'm going to redo...
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Alright let me first say i have never done any structure work to a house besides putting up vinyl siding…, that is why i am asking you all this to better inform me on the steps i should take. I recently bought a house 3 or 4 months ago with a detached garage that is pretty much my shop. It...
  17. Focus on the Workspace
    We just moved to a new house and I am lucky enough to have a 25' x 30' metal shop building. There is an 8' garage door on it and 4 sky lights in the roof. The walls are 11' high and each roof section is approx 14' from the top plate to the roof ridge. It doesn't get SUPER cold here in North...
  18. Focus on the Workspace
    Santa was kind to me in regards to employment bonus. Tomorrow, going to insulate garage door with 1.5" R-Max rigid insulation with foil. Next, I might actually tackle blown in insulation for the walls. But first, a question: I have 2×4 spacing between outside structure and inside drywall. I...
  19. Focus on the Workspace
    I have an older home in Central Pa with a brick carriage house that I use as my wood shop. In the shop I have several massive antique woodworking tools which have large heavy metal components. As the seasons transition, it is not uncommon to be very cold one day and warm with extremely high...
