  1. Tea Box

    This is a tea box that I made for my wife a while back, over a year ago actually. It was the second box with splines that I made, it was also the last time I used splines, lol. I like splines, and they are easy to do, I just haven't had another use for them since this box. The wood is something...
  2. TV Cabinet with Reclaimed Barn Door Hardware

    This is a fun project I did for a customer that wanted to do a simple outdoor cabinet for their flat screen tv. The cabinet is made of MDF. I laminated 1/2" pieces together to give it the paneled look and to increase the strength. The hinges are Blum 170° Full Overlay euro hinges and I used 3...
  3. Small Chest

    Here is a recent box / small chest that I completed. It was my first time trying out the new Freud box joint blades I bought, and I used a home made box joint jig that is set up for very fine adjustments. The sides of the box are walnut and mahogany. The top and bottom panels are lacewood. The...
  4. Tippet Dispenser Fly Fishing Use

    These are the tippet dispenser as my second build. I built the first one before and posted here. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/34196 After I used the one for more than a year, I found it was a bit bulky to handle in a river while can hold four spools. So, I made these skinny version can hold...
  5. Baby Gate from White Ash

    I made this back in April when my son started moving around, and we wanted to make sure his movements are only horizontal and not vertical. I actually wanted to avoid having to build something, since I have more than enough projects that need to be done around the house. We looked at several...
  6. New legs... new lift... Ambrosia Maple?

    Ambrosia Maple, walnut splines, and a top that might be oak… not absolutely sure. I have been spending a lot of time in the workshop. I am the kind of guy that is easily bored, so I try new things quite a bit. I wanted a different kind of lift for my box and found an oriental (?) design...

  9. Nightstand w/ $3 secret drawer lock

    I recently built 2 floating nightstands that each have a secret magnetic locking mechanism for the top drawer. This lock is really what I want to share. It only costs $3 to build and is very simple to add to any existing piece of furniture with drawers. It only requires a hinge pin, a poker...
  10. Baby Gate

    Just a baby gate I whipped up to keep the little ones away from the stairs. stained to match the cabinets and trim in the house. Arch top was fun to build as it was the first arch top panel I have ever made. When the day comes to take it back down there will be two screw hole on each wall to...
  11. Router Accessory Cabinet

    I decided it was time to give my expensive router bits a place deserving of their value. I used a bunch of small pieces I had lying around, mostly hard Maple with a cedar back. I left some room for several more. A couple of drawers to throw the collets, guide bushings and wrenches into and I'm...
  12. Sharpening Stones Case with Wooden Latches

    Long time ago in the galaxy far far away… Well, it's good to be back to woodworking. No need to repeat importance of sharpening. The easier access to your sharpening stuff, the more often you hit your cutting edges on the stones, the better from any point of view. In my case of very limited...
  13. Carolina Cherry Burl Magnetic Net Releases

    I started making these in walnut and found that some of the pen blanks I can obtain make for great fly fishing magnetic latches. For those that don't know what this is, see my video. I imagine there are myriad uses for them. Greg<>< Sierra-Nets.com
  14. Black Cherry Beauty

    Cherry pie, cherry slushies, chocolate covered cherries, I love them all. But, I love cherry wood even more. I recently got my hands on a beautiful piece of wide, black cherry lumber. I decided to build a big, elegant box entirely of cherry. It is 12" long, x 8" wide, and 8 inches tall. The...
  15. primitive shed door

    I'm building a koi pond and I needed a filter house. This is the door I put on the filter house. Simple and works great. I used P.T. 2×12 biscuit joined and then lapped with 1×6s, glued and screwed. Door latch works by sliding the knob left/right. Silly wooden fish covers the slot. I...
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Have a project in the works. Will be using 1/4 MDF for slats and a middle shelf. What is better; to use the same stain as on the case or match a paint to the stain? Any help is appreciated.
  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Greetings. New to the forum, but have been making sawdust for decades. I'm hoping that someone can help me find a current source for the spring loaded catch shown in the image. The screen shot is from WoodWorkersSupply, but no longer available. I used this on a small instrument case years...
  18. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am building a cedar fence. I've looked at many, many gate latches and they all seem cheap and ugly. So, what do you guys think about using a magnet. Hollow out the gate and post, stick in a 150Lb? pull magnet and cover it with a thin slice of cedar. I know what you thinking- the gate would...
  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm trying to find latches like these. Note the long throw on the top of the crate with the 90-degree turn on the front. Amazon searches have me coming up empty.
  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Has anyone found a good resource for cabinet hardware? I am looking for a "swing latch" but I need one with a larger span than all I have found so far. The standard has about 7/8 span, I would need 1 1/4 or so maybe 1 1/2.
