  1. Shop Safety -- Magnetic Feather Boards

    I picked up a couple of feather boards ($2 each) at a weekend Estate Sale, among several other tool finds. Time to retire an old feather board that has served me well all these years - with a zero kickback record. To install the Mag-Jig® Magnetic Clamps, I needed to elongate the holes a little...
  2. Oyster Sloop

    This was a glued-lapstrake plans built 17' sloop designed by John Leather I built in 1994. The strakes are marine plywood (Okume) and the thwarts, coaming, risers, rails and sole are sassafras. The mast, boom and yard are spf from the lumberyard; and the tabernacle is SYP. This was the seventh...
  3. Push Block with ... sole

  4. Heavenwood box

    I love this box. I might hold it in my recliner and rub on it all night long. I guess there are lots of things as fine as the feel of well worked wood, but not too many. I know what you're thinking. Ya got me there. I made this from some pieces laying around the shop. Not sure where I got...
  5. Return To Sender or Pau Pow

    Here is a simple bible box I made for a friend from work. He was a consultant from Brazil. We spent a lot of time working together during the project we worked on and we exchanged a lot of information about our respective countries. I asked him about wood since his country is one huge rain...
  6. The last in the set of guitar pick tables

    I started off this set with only one coffee table in mind which I called a guitar pick coffee table. Then I decided to add a couple of side tables based on the same design for a couple of triangular open spots in the living room. After I was done with that there was only one couch left that...
  7. Curved Side Blanket Box

    This blanket box is made with red oak and walnut, with unfinished aromatic cedar interior. The legs have a routed slot to accommodate 1/4" red oak plywood, kerf-cut on the back to allow it to follow the curve in the leg slots. The top is red oak cut at 45 degree angles in four sections to make...
  8. School Fundraising Project

    School Fundraiser Project Conquering the world… one keychain at a time. I was contacted back in October by Mr. Toy, at Westborough Middle School in South San Francisco, about perhaps working with him and his students on a Christmastime fundraiser, to raise money for a class trip to the...
  9. Metal Sculpture Frame

    The frame is made of poplar. I used black lacquer overall and red lacquer for pin striping on the sides. It is an accent that really looks good when viewing it in person. The whole thing was clear coated with Sherwin Williams T77 F57 clear precat lacquer. The over all size is 44" wide by 66"...

  12. Lego Box

    I made this box to store the legos that my kids and now grand kids play with. They have been in our family for 30 years and will probably be around another 30 years. So I thought they deserved something better than a cardboard box to stay in. It is made of 1/4 inch sand ply, walnut and oak. It...

  15. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I am brand new to real woodworking, and I had my first scare in the shop yesterday. I consider myself educated, I spent months reading every book/DVD/website I could get my hands on before setting up my shop and buying tools. With that being said here is what happened…... I was ripping about 8...
  16. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Hi All I am new so first of all hello. Not sure if this belongs in this category so if not please feel free to move it. In general I am new to woodworking and have only recently bought a cheap and nasty band saw (300mm x 300mm x 80mm capacity 350w). Now I know in theory kickback shouldn't be...
  17. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    So there I was…Don't all good stories start that way? I always think so. But this isn't really a good story. So there I was (oops, already said that), first project with my new tools. Thinking I knew what I was doing, I started ripping some wood (sawdust is our friend)! Now, before I go too...

  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have an Incra 1000SD Miter Gauge that I almost cut the end off of the other day. I installed my Miter Gauge and zeroed it out according to the instructions: However when I pivoted it over to 45 degrees to make a cut I nearly sliced the end off of my Gauge (and ruined a blade in the...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi everyone, Happy New Year! Well, I need help deciding what to do. I've had a Dewalt 7480 for a few years now and I love it. Wanting something bigger, I bought a used Craftsman 221140 for about $200 on CL about a year ago. The saw runs great, but the stock fence leaves more to be desired...
