  1. Cooking utensils

    Some of the favourite kitchen utensils broke and there was a need to replace them. After a short session in the workshop I replicated the original items but also added my own touch. The utensils are made from birch and finished with food safe mineral oil.
  2. Well, My Christmas Shopping Is Done!!!!

    Just finished my Christmas "shopping" for this year!! Well, I still have to devise some sort of holders for these, yet. I was thinking of something along the lines of a flat piece with a cove cut along the length but because the rolling pins are tapered from the center, they would not lay flat...
  3. Mahogany Bread Board

    I built this Mahogany Bread Board for my mom as a easier way of taking things out of the oven (primarily cream cheese danishes). It is about 4 feet long and 8 inches wide. I used a belt sander with #50 grit to rough out the main body, then #100 to smooth it out. It is finished with Teak Oil.
  4. Coffee wand

    This is a simple project that I have done recently and started using. We recently got a french press and a wooden spoon just does not quite get into the corners, I needed a small project that I could take to work, I match made in heaven? I also needed a chance to practice knife work. What I...
  5. Roux Spoons

    These roux (pronounced "roo") spoons are for stirring roux. FYI, roux is a Cajun/Creole base for gumbo and other local dishes. It is made from equal parts of cooking oil and flour, put on a low fire and stirred constantly until it is the color of peanut butter or slightly darker. These are...
  6. Meat Mallet

    Hard Maple kitchen mallet. Kept it simple, three pieces of maple glued up to a 3" x 3" block. Didn't even turn a round handle, just rounded the corners on the router table. The tenderizing "bumps" were done on the router table with a V groove bit, you can see some burn marks where I didn't...
  7. Completed Rolling Pin- After the Lumberjocks Jig

    Well here is the rolling pin after all of the help everyone gave me. I am more pleased with the alignment of the ellipses. I also got input from a pastry chef who indicated he preferred a more flat center section to help keep the dough a consistent thickness. This has a couple of applications of...
  8. Can I join the CB Club ??

    This is my first cutting board so thought I would post it. Nothing special like some of the fantastic lazy larry boards and the tumbling block boards but I thought it turned out pretty nice. I have to tell the quick story as to how this came about. I have thought about making some of these...
  9. This is the first of its kind to come out of zlsboardworks

    I didn't know what I was going to make when I started this project. I had a small piece of mahogany and just started to sand it, I got bored with that, and didn't know what to do, so I went over to the band saw and started cutting. Sure enough the shape that I had ended up looking like a...
  10. Kitchen utensil box

    This here is a kitchen utensil box. I made it because one of our kitchen drawers is overcrowded. It actually started about two years ago when I made a couple such boxes (different design) as gifts. My wife really liked them, so I promised I would make her one. Well, now I've finally fulfilled...
  11. A New Rolling Pin

    Edit: This is my entry into the Yin Yang Contest. I think the dark Walnut and Sapele contrast with the Maple to further enhance the Yin Yang character of the overlapping Celtic Knot design. You may remember that Karson and David visited me last month and gave me a couple of pieces of really...
  12. Simple but as useful as it gets

    This is the first spoon that I have attempted. It turned out to be really easy to make. I even made a little blog post on the steps I took to get there. CHECK IT OUT if you like @http://zlsboardworks.blogspot.com/. I like how the spoon came out overall and cant wait to use it. Let me know what...
  13. Getting There.....

    The builders started putting the roof sheathing on just before they called it quits for the day, so I expect tomorrow I'll have a roof over my head. Yesterday a fellow from the Gen'l Contractors office came out and we picked the roof shingles (to match the garage) and we picked the color of the...
  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    When you are using a zci does it HAVE to be screwed down while using? I know this would be okay if it was under the fence like when you are raising the blade into it, but what I'm wondering about is while using the saw to make other cuts. Is it safe or okay to just have it sitting in the...
  15. Blogs
    Introduction Hello everyone, It's been a while since my last post regarding my mini hand tool cabinet, which is still under construction (truthfully, I haven't really made any progress since my last post at the link above). I became very busy at the end of last year defending my Ph. D. thesis...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey everyone! I was just looking at an ad for a 1978 Powermatic model 62 table saw and I am having trouble finding more information about it. I was hoping someone might be able to help me out with figuring some things out. First, I have no idea how big the motor is on this, but I know it is...
  17. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Hey, Hey, Hey!!! A first from Lew's Basement Workshop! Well it finally happened, after all these years of making and giving away "stuff" to family, relatives and friends (?) and donating items to school auctions and charities-someone actually ASKED me to make something for them and finished...
