  1. Kids Puzzle Stool, wedged tenon legs

    My wife and I are attending a baby shower this weekend, and as usual are bringing a homemade gift. I've posted these before so I'll spare the construction details. The top is 2 layers of 3/4 BB, legs are 1-1/4" oak dowels set at a 12 degree angle and wedged in. Finish is Minwax "natural" stain...
  2. Rebuilt lathe tool holder

    The original idea for this came from Gerry(TheDane) and is in another project. As I used my chucks and changed from one to another I would lay them on the lathe headstock, table to right of lathe, router table to the left of lathe or anywhere close. I didn't have a specific place to put them...
  3. Gettin a new grip

    When my friend's brother-in-law retired from the force he asked me to craft him a new handgrip for his personal firearm. i selected two goncalvo alves scales and crafted them to the plastic original equipment. Since they felt a bit small in my hand, The new grip is a tad wider, much smoother and...
  4. Custom Jigsaw Puzzle

    Kids have so many toys these days, it's very hard for a grandpa to know what to get for a five-year-old's birthday. My solution is to make something for my grandchildren, and give them a little cash along with that so they can buy whatever toy they might want. This year the gift is a jigsaw...
  5. Mates Bed - April '05

    This is actually my first wood working project completed back in April '05. Built from plans I received from Knotty Plans. Finish sanded to 220 with Minwax Golden Pecan. Lessons Learned: NEVER pull a full sheet of plywood off the rack by yourself (I know, common sense). The original...
  6. DIY Simple Tennessee shaped pallet sign

    I made a simple pallet sign in the shape of my home state, Tennessee. Using Jigsaw, Tablesaw, Titebond II glue, some old pallet boards and clamps. I downloaded a picture from the Internet, imported it into Inkscape and printed out a pattern. Glued pattern to pallet boards and cutout with a...
  7. Adirondack Chair w/Dowel Construction

    I decided to put a little different twist on Adirondack Chair design. I made this with Oak Plywood and Oak dowels glued in place for the seat. I only used wood screws to attach the armrests and the back. I'm NOT using exterior plywood for this chair, and I'm keeping it out of the rain under my...
  8. Flower Planter for Mother's day

    I made this for my Mom, it's her Mother's day present. It's made from common lumber and Whitepine from Lowes. I cut all the parts out, then stained them with Rustoluem Kona stain. Then carved out the Welcome and Humming birds on my CNC. All the parts are fasten together with pocket screws...
  9. Jigsaw Edge Cutting Support

    If you own and use a jigsaw, you know as I do that this tool is not stable went cutting close to edges, as for rounding over a corner or make a cut-out for a leg as example, and that because the base doesn't make full contact with the workpiece. Here's the support I came up with. It will change...
  10. Wood Shotgun Grip

    I had this ideia as soon as I bought the shotgun. I began by tracing the old handle on a piece of wood, I used a log from olive oil that was waiting for the winter in my fireplace. I started flatening the log and then traced the old piece, i had to use a jigsaw to make the cuts which wasnt easy...
  11. Scrolling Chair

    I'd been using a little director's chair style stool to sit on while working at my new scroll saw and had been having such severely aggravated SI joint dysfunction that I couldn't walk for a few days. The solution? No, not take more breaks from the scroll saw, build a better chair! This chair...
  12. Hang em High!

    Finally got the barn owl house in the trees. No broken bones and only a few bruises… Now we wait. ;0)
  13. Kid's Dress Up Station

    My wife found this somewhere online, probably Pinterest, a while back and asked if I could make it. It wasn't as hard to do as I thought it would be and she painted it up afterward. I think it turned out pretty well. It is made out of 1/2" plywood and a long dowel rod. I used pocket screws and...
  14. Jigsaw into Scroll saw / Bandsaw jig

    In the run up to the holidays SWMBO wanted a lot of card holders to display all of our christmas cards on the mantle above the fire. As a beginner woodworker I am often scarce a tool or too and I currently have no bandsaw or scroll saw to mass produce any shaped pieces such as these (they can be...
  15. Halloween Black Cat

    This week, with Halloween just around the corner. I wanted to make a simple DIY project. With me being a cat person, I had to make a Black cat decoration. I made the cat out of some old pallet boards glued up, but you could use plywood. Drew out a pattern and cut it out with a Jigsaw. Added some...
  16. Jigsaw Table (Keep it Simple)

    I made this simple jigsaw table so it would be quick and easy to be temporarily installed in a bench vise. The base is made out of MDF (about 12" square), as well as the support arm. The saw itself is held down with only 6 round head screws to be easily removed when required. You can't beat...
  17. JOY yard sign

    First time making a yard sign. Commissioned piece. 4' tall, 3/4" plywood. Used an old classroom projector to draw the patterns onto the plywood.
  18. Remanufactured Sewing Table

    So this was the first project on my new bench as a novice woodworker. Nothing spectacular really, just creative thinking in a pinch. You see, Cali had just received a really bitchin 1970's era Husqvarna Viking 2000 sewing machine that has like 1,000 stitches. Problem was she had no table to use...
  19. Arts and Crafts Bookcase

    I finished this in December 12'. It's a design of my own made using Birch plywood for the body and basic clear pine for the face frames. The shelves are also birch ply with a pine front stripped attached with glue. The top is a glue up of some 5/4 pine. The case is held together with simple...
  20. Christmas Tree Cutting Board

    I know we're past Christmas now, but thought I would share this cutting board design with you. I used bamboo for the main board and hardwood (rosewood & walnut) for the dowels. Anyone can get creative with this. If you have a lathe, you can make your own dowels of different sizes. I'm also...
