  1. Oak Half Door with Top Ledge

    This is a door I made for another of my neighbors. They said they had an idea about having a half door made to separate their laundry room and kitchen. They also have dogs and needed to keep them out so they didn't have to use their chairs to block the doorway. A top ledge was also needed to...
  2. Wooden Knob Templates

    So I decided that I needed to make some wooden knobs for my router table (build in progress). The first picture is of my initial results. The four prong knobs came out reasonably well for someone who just eyeballed it, but the five-star knobs….....lets just say that my eyeball calibration is...
  3. Zebrawood Tote & Knob Sets for Stanley No. 4

    I am in the process of restoring a bunch of old Stanley/Bailey planes, and many of them had broken or damaged totes/knobs. This was my first attempt at making my own tote/knob set. I chose Zebrawood, and I decided to make 2 knobs and 2 totes. Obviously, the knobs were turned on a lathe. The...
  4. Grandson's fair project for this year

    Well it's that time of the year for our local area youth fair entries are being turned in for judging. Along with animal projects my grandson likes entering the wood working category where he usually does well. This year he made a segmented bowl with lid. Wood used was maple, padauk and...
  5. CNC cut cherry hold downs and knobs.

    I got a little carried away with these. I was looking for a simple solution to hold things down on the drill press table and ended up with these. The cherry was salvaged from an old table top that had warped badly. The pivot is a maple dowel. I made a set of 8 to use for other jigs. The...
  6. Knob Handle Walking Cane

    Here is a Knob handled walking cane. It is made with a Lacewood top mounted on a White Ash and Sapele shank with a Blackwood spacer. It has been finished with several coats of Danish Oil and top coats of Shellac.
  7. Coat and Hat Racks

    These are four coat and hat racks I made for a craft show, much earlier on in my woodworking endeavor, none sold so I found uses for them around the house. The one with a variety of different knobs serves as my daughters headband/hair band, bracelet, and necklace storage area. They are made...
  8. Mikey's Shop Made Knobs

    There I was working on my table saw sled. I needed some knobs, but had none…so the MacGyver in me said "make some". I pulled out my jig hardware parts and started to figure out what all I would need and how to make the knobs. They aren't perfectly symmetrical, but they work just fine. I used...
  9. "Buick"

    July, 2011-This is oak sandwiched between pine, with poplar feet. Basically a band saw box made from scraps. It has one drawer with a large, chrome knob. It's an old knob from my junk box. This has a couple coats of rub-on satin poly. When I look at this, it reminds me of an old Buick from...
  10. Yin & Yang Knobs

    Just finished building new cabinetry to our bathroom/laundry. I wanted the knobs to not be similar but compliment each other. Tin & Yang seems to do the job (and hopefully contribute to the bathroom harmony :))
  11. Bentwood Rings

    Here's an assortment of bentwood rings I've made recently. - Walnut lined with birch - Mahogany - Red Oak - Bubinga - Rosewood - Tropical Olivewood These are finished with several coats of Arm-R-Seal and buffed with Black Bison. (Except for the last two, which have a natural oil finish applied.)
  12. Plane knob

    This is a small one, but I really liked how it turned out. I got a Stanley no 3 for cheap from an estate sale. It was missing the cap iron and front knob. I told myself if I managed to make a decent knob I would permit myself a hock blade and cap iron (which I got!). I don't have a lathe so...
  13. Shaker coffee table

    My second "introduction to furniture construction" project and my first try at making a drawer and using a dovetail jig. Walnut frame and legs, hard maple top and drawer front. Finish is three coats of satin wipe-on poly. Two sort of funny stories about this table. There are four students in my...
  14. Khaya knob for spice grinder

    I have a CrushGrind coffee grinder I bought way back when they did their Kickstarter. I use it for grinding spices. Yesterday I dropped it and the plastic knob that came with it broke, so today I decided to fix that. I had a piece of Khaya (African mahogany) about 2×2x4 inches, and I chucked it...
  15. Custom Tote & Knob for Stanley No 5 - 8 Hand Planes

    I refinished these handles from Michael K. Woodworks. They are provided to me with a shellac and paste wax finish and then I remove the paste wax with mineral spirits, remove the shellac with acetone, and then do some additional work to the knob before I refinish them. The wood is Bubinga and...
  16. KitchenAid mixer knob replacement

    I have a KitchenAid artisan mixer and after several years the small black plastic knob that secures attachments crumbled leaving only the metal screw. I turned this walnut knob as a replacement. It's much larger providing greater mechanical advantage and grip. It is finished with boiled linseed oil.
  17. Shopmade Knobs

    Being a thrifty woodworker, I like to save on everything. Here's how I save by making my own shopmade jig knobs with scrapwood and 1/4" T-nuts. Using a compass I roughly draw the shanks on a 3/4''-thick scrapwood then I drill 1/16"-deep recesses for the head of the T-nuts using a 3/4" spade...
  18. Replacement Turned Knobs

    I got a request the other day to turn a couple of knobs. One turned out to be a little interesting. Woodbutcher3 actually called me to see if I wanted this work. I told him Sure. After receiving the samples to be duplicated, closer inspection revealed these were face turnings, not spindle...
  19. Personalized Music Stand

    This was my first real project. I am in the process of building my daughter some furniture for her bedroom (crib and dresser) and building a chest of drawers and nightstands for my bedroom. They were taking so long that I was getting burned out. I just wanted to see something completed! I...
  20. Indian Chief scroll saw portrait

    This was actually my very first scrollsaw piece ever. I cut this on an old scroll saw I bought from a friend. It's still one of my favorites. Framed in a salvaged cabinet door.
