  1. Pepper Mill/Salt Shaker Combination

    Here is another Pepper Mill/Salt Shaker combination. These are proving to be very popular and are fun to make. This one is made from some 2 1/2×2 1/2" Poplar from Lowes. Turning is pretty easy, you only need two drill bits, a 1 1/2" and a 1 1/16" Forestner bits. I get the kits from Penn...
  2. Desk Caddy/Monitor Stand

    I don't like looking down at a computer monitor, so I seem to always need to put my monitor on top of something. This desk caddy is all pine, except for the drawer pulls, which are an unidentified wood I had a few scraps of. The board the monitor is sitting on top of swivels, thanks to a 4" lazy...
  3. L-Square Stop & Depth Gauge

    L-square Stop - Depth Gauge - Table Saw Setup Tool I designed and built my L-square edge stop around 1984, when I became frustrated with using stops for setting up stair steps for the process. I wanted one which was quick to install and easy to use (e.g., moved smoothly along the edge). The...
  4. Wooden Shop Squares

    Squares of all kinds are an important shop tool. but sometimes just the exercise of building your own tool helps you better understand that tool on a deeper level. A couple months ago Chris Schwarz over at Pop Wood Magazine got my attention when he started blogging about a square Patrick Leach...
  5. Damascus marking knife

    I haven't posted any projects in a while, because I have been busy making, & going to school. But Im still on LJ daily checking out everyone else's pieces. I will start posting them soon as I Get all my pictures rounded up. This marking knife was a collaboration between my friend ryan and I...
  6. My Homemade Point2Point Layout Tool

    My store bought Point2Point equidistant layout tool being too small (top) (max stretch 24"), I made my own. It stretches up to 56"! I used ash wood because of its straight grain. For all construction details and more photos, check these two page of blog. And be sure to read the bottom part...
  7. Stickley #72 Magazine Cabinet

    Stickley #72 I completed back in June 12'. Made of clear pine 4/4, 5/4, 6/4. Took around 15 hours to complete. Made with dado/rabbet/tongue and groove and mortise and tenon joinery. Finished with minwax 225. I've made much of the furniture in our living room and dining room which is why I use...
  8. English Layout Square

    I saw this square at the Woodworking in America Conference this past fall and thought it was a beautiful tool. I took several photos with the intention of making one of my own but managed to lose them. Fortunately Christopher Schwarz wrote up this square as a project in the December 2010...
  9. The Dutch Tool Chest

    In the October issue of Popular Woodworking are the plans for the Dutch Tool Chest. When Chris Schwarz first began write about this bad boy via the Lost Art Press blog, I was instantly intrigued. I was considering building the Anarchrist's Tool Chest but the cost and labor kept putting me off to...
  10. Height gauge

    This height gauge is made from maple & purpleheart. The design is from Jack Houweling YouTube channel , a thanks to him! My first try at some inlay, was very fun & will be a useful tool in my garage shop. Sorry about the pics, LJ will not allow me. to turn themThanks to all LJ's !
  11. Rosewood Butt Gauge

    I was inspired by the butt gauge EarlS made for the recent layout tool swap. It's a really simple tool but it's also a really useful tool and I had never really seen anything quite like it for some reason. So, per my usual MO, I shamelessly ripped Earl's design off ;-) I did make a couple of...
  12. Wooden Hair Clips

    First, I started by re-sawing some cutoffs and turning blocks I had around the shop. This was mulberry, walnut, sycamore, pine and some dogwood. I passed each piece through the planer to give it a good gluing surface. Then arranged the pieces and glued them together. After the glue dried I...
  13. table and chairs

    This is the table that goes with the chairs I posted a week ago.I had a lot of fun making these.I designed them but they are I would say a shaker-craftman style,if there is such a thing.I hope you all like them.
  14. Bar Gauge - 2018 Layout and Marking Tool Swap

    For my swap item I made a bar gauge inspired by the WoodPeckers OneTimeTool bar gauge. I used 303 stainless 3/8" solid round bar for the rods, there are 6 at 12", 2 at 8" and 1 at. 6" plus the two fixed 6" bars. Each end of the bars was locked into a collet on my lathe, faced, chamfered, center...
  15. 2018 Layout and Marking Tool Swap

    So these were my entries. They all came from the same chunk of Satinwood Burl. At first I was hoping to go with all damascus for the metals, but then I saw the prices and decided against it. While looking for the Damascus though, I had the burl cut in to rough sizes and threw it in the vacuum...
  16. French Cleat Measurement Tool Storage

    A few years ago, I installed a pair of French cleat rails in our garage. At the time, I had grand plans to build all sorts of handy little storage racks and the like. Aside from some clamp racks and a crosscut sled holder, I never built any of those things. Now that I can't easily go out and buy...
  17. POWER LIFT FOR COMPUTER STAND

    Here it is, the power computer lift for my original stand finished. It works great. In the one photo you can see the little box with the control switch. It is powered by a 9v. power supply. The drive is a small surplus DC gear head motor. I never liked moving the lid on the hinge that much so...
  18. Proportinal Dividers

    I needed a way to scale up a recent small project, so made these proportional dividers. The pictures are self-explanatory I think. These are simple and relatively easy to make using this simple method for layout. This method works for any sized dividers you may need - i.e., ratio or overall...
  19. Circle Template

    I find that I draw a lot of circles and arcs in the shop. Every time I need a circle, I scurry around looking for the can or jar or bottle or washer or something that is just the right diameter. Usually, I settle for something close that, if I angle my pencil just right, will allow me to...
  20. Holly / Turquoise Bolo Tie

    Made from holly wood, turquoise colored stones, and a shoe string. I'd been wanting to make one of these for a while now and finally did so today. Took a LOT of tedious sanding and shaping and I think it turned out well. Finished with wipe-on-poly, then wax, then buffed real niiiice. The 3rd...
