  1. Student Desk

    Built this desk for my youngest daughter a few years back when she was in high school. Wanted the wood and finish to match the dresser/hutch piece built a few years before. Construction is out of solid oak, dovetail drawers (hand cut), and finished with Minwax Golden Pecan, and three coats of...
  2. Bar Stool

    This wood was under a river in Honduras for over 100 years they call it "Soaker Logs". We picked it up locally in Crystal River Florida. The place has since gone out of business. Last year my husband Frank went to Chidwick School of Fine Woodworking in Stevensville, Montana...
  3. Firewood Mallet

    These Mallet Dreamers got me motivated. So heres what I came up with. It is hedge, (Osage Orange). 9" L, 2-3/8" D and 12.1 oz W.
  4. Off cut end table.

    This weekend I wanted to clear out some off-cuts. I made some into boxes which I will post here later. I started off by cutting short left over 1/2" walnut, bubinga, cherry and maple into 2"squares. Had no idea what they were going to be. Once cut I glued them to a piece of 1/2" maple. At this...
  5. Parallel clamp racks

    These are two clamp racks that I built to replace a rolling floor unit that was taking up too much floor space. I had made a clamp rack of a similar concept four years ago (check it out here). One difference is that I made this one mount on a french cleat, which is nice because I don't need a...
  6. A couple humidors

    I built two of these with the hope that at least one would turn out good. Both are veneered Spanish Cedar. The first is Pommele Sapele with Wenge, and the second is Waterfall Bubinga with Purpleheart. Finishing for me was, as usual, a painful process. I'd give just about anything to be able...
  7. Cedar Porch Swing

    The untreated pine porch swing that I made 8 years ago had finally deteriorated to the point that it could no longer support people. I decided to replace it with one made of Eastern Red Cedar with some improvements. I copied the seat and back curves from my original swing as they were very...
  8. Large Redwood Burl Slab Coffee Table W/turquoise inlay on a pine burl base

    We just completed this large coffee table. The redwood top measures 65×46… it has turquoise inlay through out and we used several coats of Seal A Cell The base is a solid pine burl that we found setting on top of the ground but connected by tree roots. It is solid and very very heavy. We ended...
  9. My Mother's Urn

    This urn was built by my brother Roy, my son Tom and myself for my mother's ashes. It is made from curly koa with a maple inlay and finished in a satin finish. This project was completed in 2 days. The urn is about 14" on a side and about 7" tall with a volume of 220 cubic inches.
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    I was just at Lowes this evening and they had their about once a year special on their Quick Grip clamps 4 for $20. I remember mentioning this somewhere on this site and someone thought I was making a mistake. They are usually 2 for $20. These are great single hand clamps for light clamping...
  11. Hand Tools
    I recently cleaned out my father's basement and came across a few gems to add to my toolbox: 1. Miller Falls Eggbeater Hand Drill (possibly 2B or 2D model 1922) 2. Stanley No. 78 8IN Bit Brace 3. Rapier 10 (Gateshead England) Sliding Bevel Gauge. Looks exactly like the Stanley No. 18...

  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello WW Bargain Hunters, I happened to see a display in the Blue Box (aka Lowe's) today. The display box has packages of 4 Irwin Quick Grips, the 6" capacity size, with a sign saying 19.99.
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I recently purchased an Irwin Marples dado stack from a big box store for $100. I love it's performance so far and I am very happy that I chose this one over the less expensive options. It leaves nice crisp edges when used with a zero clearance insert and the storage case is plenty sturdy. This...

    Just got an email from Peachtree on Irwin adjustable wrenches. Looks like a pretty kick butt deal on these guys. I have been looking for a good set at a reasonable price and it looks like this is it. It's a 4 pack deal for $28! Heres a link. http://www.ptreeusa.com/edirect_070511.htm...
  16. Hand Tools
    Ladies and Gents - anyone out there have drawings, sketches, dimensions for a Jennings 13(?) Bit box? I have 19 bits that need a home and I've been thinking about building one but I haven't found any dimensions. And it doesn't necessarily have to be a Jennings box. Maybe an Irwin Swing out? Or...
  17. Hand Tools
    I am about to purchase a new chisel set. I am a hybrid woodworker who primarily uses power tools. I have been getting by with a cheap set of Harbor Freight chisels. They must be sharpened after nearly every use, but have got the job done (mostly). I have narrowed my choices down to a 4 piece...

    What I have and What's Next! Hello and welcome to my first Blog! The intent of this blog is to track my entrance into the world of woodworking. There seems to be a gap between the people who are just getting into woodworking, and those who have been enjoying the hobby for ten years. So, this...

    Mini Block Plane I'm starting a new series with this post, figuring that I'll want to talk more about old and new tools in the future. I was in a random hardware store today when I saw a couple of these little guys sitting on the shelf. I thought, for $9, why not? Rosewood body, with a small...

    Walnut Wood - I just need to know... Does anyone else - when working with black walnut - think it smells delicious? I just want to eat it whenever I'm cutting it. I was recently cutting out a ball blank from a glue-up of walnut, maple, and wenge, the latter two of which don't really have a...
