  1. Surprise Swap scraper plane

    As part of the spring 2017 surprise swap, I decided to make a scraper plane. But rather than a 112-style scraper, I prefer the Stanley #80. I use spokeshaves in a lot of places where normal people use planes. I started by cutting some handles from some 8/4 red oak I have on hand. For the front...
  2. Surprise swap beading plane with adjustable fence

    After I had wrapped up my scraper plane for the spring 2017 surprise swap it felt like the pressure was off a little. I had drawn Mark Kornell as a recipient and Mark makes planes. Well, I'd made a plane I didn't feel bad about sending to him, but I wanted to make something else to sweeten the...
  3. Art Box #3

    Here is another Art Box for a auction for the High School. The first art box I made was for a auction for the grade school and sold so good that I was asked immediately for another one for the High School. I used walnut and maple with walnut splines. You may notice that I use walnut a lot...

  5. Cheap Laser Etcher Trails

    So, I decided that since I have a graphics background prior to and after my military life I should try out a cheap laser etcher with some of my wood projects. For my birthday my wife said I could go ahead and buy one. So I found this cheap/fairly well-rated etcher I found on gearbest...

  7. Wood Grain Alcohol

    So I have been having fun with my laser engraver (see previous posts). Every year at work we do a white elephant gift exchange. I work with Marines so some years half of the gifts are some form of alcohol. SO I thought it would be fun to slip a dummy round in the bunch. I started doing it a...
  8. Cabbage board

    A heart shaped cribbage board I made for a friend. Made from the top of an old sewing machine cabnet they had. The outside of the heart and the hole layout was all done in Corel draw and marked on my Epilog laser. On the bottom of the heart I incorporated a little drawer for storing the pins...
  9. Shut the Box (2 sided)

    Made this game for my mom for Christmas. I k ow it's early to post, but I don't think she's snooping around on LJs to see what I post haha. I had never played this game before finishing the entire project, so I got to learn how to play on my own set. It's pretty fun and there are a variety of...
  10. Laser Projects..

    My son decided he needed a laser engraver and today, we got to play with it. I was amazed by the quality and size of the machine. I thought it couldn't possibly do as well as it did. The LaserPecker Pro cost in the $450 range and came with everything needed to get right at it, We tested it on an...

  14. Sherry's Urn

    I made this Urn for a friend's final resting place. Her husband was an avid outdoorsman and she wanted me to make something that would portray him in some way.

  19. 21st Century Workbench

    I recently finished building out a whole new workshop in my basement, and made a good sized investment in some new power tools, all new electrical, and central DC. However, the one item that was an absolute build versus buy nightmare for me was the workbench. After much deliberation, reading...
  20. Box to hold some Jeff Beck

    I made another box for my buddy that moved to North Carolina. He recently asked me for some Jeff Beck music so I made him 10 Cd's. He will copy them to his MP3 player for the beach but he still uses CD's in the car. When I got done making the CD's, I figured I might as well make a dedicated case...
