  1. Mini Cutting Board

    This was a project I did by hand with a sanding block last night from pen blanks. I'm learning about cutting boards at the moment, so I started with a small onion or tomato cutting board. The last picture is before oiling. You can view my step-by-step on this from start to finish at...
  2. First box--a definite trial

    This was my second foray into woodworking after attempting a basic tray a little less than a year prior, and what started my new obsession. With limited access to tools, being that I was just starting, this is orange box store poplar and some walnut dowels in the corners, and I can't forget the...
  3. Recipe Boxes

    These are two recipe boxes I made for the granddaughters who are getting into cooking. They are made from 7/16" maple plywood and all six pieces are lock mitered together and then the box is cut on the band saw. They are finished with Boiled Linseed Oil. Cheers, Jim
  4. Learning/Activity Tower

    This learning/activity tower project has been incredibly rewarding to build for my grandkids. And now for some of the young families I work with. It all started when my son (pictured) asked me if I would build one for my grandson. Of course the answer was yes before I even saw the plans. As it...
  5. The Dining Table

    The dining table is project 12 from our furniture making course at Lethenty Mill Furniture; it is aimed at those with some experience of furniture making. The table pictured is made of home grown beech with a fairly featureless top. I have used the same design in elm where the top has been...
  6. Marking Gauge from Scrap Pine (A trial run)

    I had just installed my vise into my bench, and I was anxious to use it. Plus I need a marking guage so I jumped right into this little project. As I always do, I rushed it and am not satisfied with the result, but this is a trial run. If I used good wood, I'll never finish it because I'm...
  7. Lazy Dragon Intarsia Wall Hanging

    This one ended up being real challenge to finish. I have to admit I might have bit off more than I could chew on this one. It has 387 pieces and ranges from 3 in to ½ in depth. I have never been so ready to finish a project. All the pieces, spacers, and gluing all were very difficult on this...
  8. Curio boxes

    A collection of 5 curio boxes made for Christmas presents. Red Oak and Walnut. Finished with tung oil. Boxes & lids had walnut splines in the mitered corner joints, which was the most challenging part of the construction. From "Weekend Woodworking Projects," January '94
  9. 3x24 BELT SANDER

    Just a little hand sander made from scrap oak flooring and some left over cork . The angle of the tensioner piece and the dado are cut at 10 DEG. at the bottom and 90 DEG. at the top. Easy ten minute project and works great . Kiefer
  10. Trivets - Maple & Walnut

    Last years hand made Christmas present for EVERYONE! I made lots of these. I even made a bread basket similar to the trivets but I never got a picture taken.
  11. Shoe rack

    This is my first really worthwhile project. For years I've been struggling with motivation, not because I don't want to make things, but because I have the perfectionist's curse and don't have the skills to live up to my expectations. However, I decided that I needed a shoe rack and that it...
  12. Kids Lego Table

    I wanted to build a Lego table for my three grandkids, but didn't find anything on the internet that was quite what I wanted. So I designed a table that used a 3/4" X 24" X 48" piece of glued up pine from the lumber yard as the inner table insert. 3/4" plywood or MDF would have worked just as...
  13. Disable child rocking chair

    Hi from a newbie here. This is a custom build proto-type of a rocking chair for a blind, learning disabled, physically handicapped child. The seating is adjustable for leg length and recline angle. The foot stool and hand grips are height variable and non-rocking features that allow for both...
  14. Shaker Tree of Life

    I wanted to draw and make my own version of the Shaker Tree of Life using a scroll saw. This was my first try at doing any scroll saw work. With a lot of learning and some frustration, it turned out to be a really nice Christmas gift to give last year. The tree is walnut and the background is...
  15. Dovetail Jig

    This is a really basic dovetail jig I came up with to build a bunch of drawers for a dresser project. At the time I couldn't afford a proper dovetail jig, and this did just fine. 20 years later, and I'm finally trolling the lists for a used Leigh D4Pro to replace this jig! The jig only...
  16. another clock

    made this from a log that was in a dumpster.
  17. My take on a marble game

    Here is a fun little marble game made for my nephew. There's not much to it woodworking wise, but hopefully it inspires a little curiosity and bring a smile. Our kids loved it, and it's another thing that will need a version two on my to do list. :)
  18. LumberJocks Woodworking Sign

    I thought I'd do a "double duty" with this one-a sign for our picnic and a Summer Awards Project. I might try it again to see if I can do it better next time but until then, this will be adorning our backyard. Wood: cedar sign; walnut, pine, and something or other wood (stuff I had kicking...
  19. Heart shaped jewellery box

    What a success this project was, and right from the inception . I was sure I was doing something wrong because everything seemed to go so right. I even took my time to get the grain in the right direction for the lid!!!! Now that's a first ! I am extremely pleased with the outcome as this is...
  20. Articulated Dragon for Charity and Weyr, With Special Thanks to LJ John Hutchinson

    The main photograph is of a very special dragon that I built for a charity auction that the Humane Society of Southwest Missouri held back in March (yes, I know I'm late, but better late than never, besides I'd rather play in the shop than write up articles since my day job entails a lot of...
