  1. Ukulele/Guitar Stand

    My very first wood project, a stand for my ukulele :) The imperfection is so obvious, hopefully my skill will improve with time.
  2. Cajon #1 is special

    Easily the one thing I've made more times than anything else is cajons. I've just never posted them here. When I started woodworking, it was because I wanted to make musical instruments. Then I fell down the rabbit hole of everything else you could make with wood (SOOOOO MUCH!) and the only...
  3. Letters for Teacher

    I made these letters for my mom because she is a teacher and she wanted to hang something above her door. She liked them a lot and other teachers even asked me to make them some :) The letters are made of fiber board because I painted them later and fiber board costs next to nothing.
  4. Versatile Benchtop Table

    Here's a benchtop table I had in mind for a long time. It's meant to be used in conjunction with different tools in the shop and around the house. I started with the idea of using such table with a jig saw and while building it I came up with more and more features and uses. And it's easy to...
  5. Ducky Stool

    I built this stool to help aid my daughter in reaching the potty for potty training. It is made of 3/4" of Southern Yellow Pine that I bought from the cut bin at Home Depot. My daughter loves ducks, so to me this had to be a duck. I traced the bottom of a bucket for the head shape. I pretty...
  6. My Scroll Saw – Jig-Saw Powered

    My Scroll Saw - Jig-Saw Powered So I decided to give a try and make my own scroll saw. Before I do that I made my own research watch lots of videos, learn a few things, look at my options and as always I first did my 3D design. The scroll saw was build entirely from Baltic Birch plywood, only...
  7. Magnetic Beer Tote

    Not the most original thing in the world but here's my take on a beer tote… Had some lightly figured maple and a bunch of aromatic cedar in the shop, so I figured I'd give one of these a try. Didn't have plans so I marked things out by using beers from the fridge. Sides are maple, bottom and...
  8. Carved Walnut Elephant Phone Stand

    My wife wanted a new phone stand since she gave all of the other ones I've made her away. I found a piece of 12/4 walnut cut off and figured lets give this a try. Rough sketch on the wood after planing down the end to a flat surface, cut it out with a jig saw. When I went to smooth out the...
  9. A simple chair, just to see if I could

    I had this as a blog series, but when I got back to the front page I saw myself featured there (I was the random lumberjock pick), so figured I should add this chair to my projects as well. In our longer term plans, we want to build chairs for our dining table. My sweety and I like to work in...
  10. Fish Art

    Here is a Custom fish I did for a Sushi Restaurant. Its made of bass wood. Its 24 inches by 36 inches and 4.5 inches thick. I was scared to make it because Im not very artistic but Im happy with the way it turned out. Burned up a Milwaukee Jig saw so I got a Festool Carvex. Wow did the Carvex...
  11. Keeper of the flame

    This tea light holder started as an experiment with the "string theory" design using a jigsaw (before I had my bandsaw). I wanted to see if I could do it, and it worked! After the second glue-up, I saw what could be a flame in the pattern, so I resawed the piece, then used Rit dyes in black...
  12. 220 gallon aquarium base

    It has been some time since I last posted a project. I have now completed a support base for a 220 gallon Aquarium. In the first photo you see the Aquarium in the back ground and you can see just how big it is. I used 2×6 ruff cut lumber and milled it flat and straight. In picture number 4 you...
  13. Gatling Rubber Band Machine Gun

    I made this fun rubber band gun in a weekend and made a video of the build along with an instructable (http://www.instructables.com/id/Gatling-Rubber-Band-Machine-Gun-Easy-Weekend-Proje/) with step by step instructions and free printable templates so others could make this fun project too. I had...
  14. Board Game Table Topper

    A friend asked for my help making a quick, inexpensive table topper for board gaming. We threw this together in a few hours for less than $100 (most of the cost was the drink holders and neoprene surface material). Table is 4ftx6ft. 1×4 pine glued right on top of 3/4" ACX. Sanding sealer...
  15. Cute Wooden Christmas Reindeer

    Hi everyone, well it's almost Christmas time, and I thought this year I would make a Cute Wooden Reindeer. This is a simple project to make, either using a Scroll saw or Jig saw. Get your kids involved, have them come up with different designs. I have included the pdf of the files, so you can...
  16. Building of a Skerry

    A boat called Wid Horses, almost finished and will post some pics in progress so everyone can see how it came to be. Thanks to CLCboats.com! Started in the spring of 07 and finishing it in the next month or so. Waiting for the snow to melt to get a better outside picture for everyone.
  17. Short Scale Music Stand

    A new music stand that I designed specifically for use while sitting down. I fell back on some design aspects that I have used for past stands, in particular the shape and design of the harp assembly (using a template that I had created in the past). The stand had 3 major construction...
  18. Plywood Tipi

    I had one of these as a kid and remember how we would climb all over it for hours. When my mom was out I asked her if she still had the plans. She said yes but, it just took 2 pieces of plywood cut corner to corner. Well after she left I thought about it, went out and bought 2 pieces of plywood...
  19. Dinosaur puzzle

    I made this puzzle for my little nephew for Christmas. Just adding to my projects so I can easily see everything I make this year. The build details are in my blog - https://www.lumberjocks.com/shawnSK/blog/130759
  20. Table Top Inverted Jig Saw

    Table Top Inverted Jig Saw So my daughter owns a small gift shop creating small wooden items for weddings, christening and mainly gifts for the kids and almost everything is hand grafted. From time to time she ask my help cutting wood for her, but I'm in a bit of a distance and is not always...
