  1. Another style stitching pony

    This stitching pony is for holding leather item while you sew them together. I have never seen one like this. I made it to hold items that might be a bit bulkier than what are normally stitched using a pony. It is made of pine, a 1/4-bolt and wing nut to operate it. The spring is to open and...
  2. Fabric Lamps

    This is an idea that I got when I worked at a furniture store. We always had a stack of discontinued fabric samples lying around and it seemed a shame to just toss 'em. So…. It's about as simple as could be - a chunk of wood wrapped with fabric and topped with oak or pine. I built a lot of...
  3. Thor's hammer!

    Behold, Mjölnir! A good friend of mine had a belated birthday party over the weekend. And unbeknownst to him but knownst to us, the theme for the party was none other than THOR, his favorite comic book hero when he was a kid. There were Thor paper plates, winged helmet party hats, a golden...

  5. Bow Arm Morris Chair

    My chair is finished, finally! It was about 6 months in the making, and many more months of dreaming it up and planning. Hickory and Walnut. Leather upholstery, which I did myself. 1 coat of danish oil, 3 coats of Arm R Seal wipe on poly, and then rub out with paste wax. The walnut was dyed to...
  6. Pepper the Biker Bitch

    A guy contacted me about wanting a special build. He wanted a seat for his dog on his motorcycle. He had looked online and found plenty of them for small dogs but nothing he could use. He has a big Yamaha bike with full dress saddlebags and all. His dog, Pepper, is a real sweetheart, but she is...
  7. Carved Finishing Mallet With Leather Faces

    I needed a mallet for finishing with a leather face and softer head. Much of this build is just like the last one with more carving and leather. Also, rather than building it out of firewood I am using a scrap of cherry that was perfect for this build. The handle is White oak and the leather was...
  8. Restored Pembroke drop-leaf Table

    This is a mid-1900's Pembroke table. It has a leather top. My shop cat had to get in the picture. It was really rough when I got it from my neighbor. Shellaced top with multiple water stains and dings. I used lots of TLC and denatured alcohol to remove all the old shellac, clean everything and...
  9. My First Flag Box

    Here's the first Flag Box I ever built. A couple of mistakes along the way, but hopefully the next one will be better. I learned a few things at least. Thanks go to Rod for both design considerations as well as donations of the plexiglass and the backing. I do like that backing. I'll be ordering...
  10. Thonged cherry bowl

    Cajunpen asked that I post a failure! This is one of many, but I recovered it. I'd turned the bowl in wet cherry, hoping for distortion rather than splitting. I hurled in on the firewood pile and then had another look at it some months later. The symmetry of the splits was appealing so I...
  11. Daddy's Chair

    This is my first chair designed and built. I learned many things through this process…..chairs are the hardest to build, comfort is paramount, and the design has to fit all shapes and sizes of people. That's a tall order. Chair was inspired by an antique Morris Chair that we purchased more...
  12. Super simple leather slicker for making a tool belt

    I made a tool belt out of scrap leather from the scrap exchange, but the edges are rough. A slicker is a device to smooth the rough edge of leather, so I used my treadle lathe to quickly make a cylinder with two grooves, a narrow groove for a single layer of leather and a wider groove for...

  14. Sycamore, Walnut, and LEATHER!

    Oklahoma sycamore, a thin slice of figured walnut, and a saddle fender I found in the trash at a local saddle shop are the components of this latest box. Half laps for the framed lid, walnut splined miters, and walnut Patron hinges. Finished with Tung Oil Finish and wax. Dimensions are 13×7x5"...
  15. Penny Table

    I took a trashed wine table and turned it into a beautiful piece of furniture that is sure to be valued as a family heirloom. A little bit of finish work, pennies, and glazing does the trick. Years ago I acquired this table from my grandmother. At one time it had a leather top. My first...
  16. A set of swingers for surprise swap

    Greetings all, Here is a set of mallets that I recently made for LJ clieb91 for the Shop Made SURPRISE Tool Swap - Fall/Winter 2016. All the handles are made out of some walnut that was a left over from my countertops, but the heads are all made of different materials. The small one -...
  17. Morris Chair

    I have finally built myself a Morris Chair. I have wanted one for a long time and finally got around to doing something about it. The chair was built out of quarter sawn white oak picked for flecks and rays. The wood is very difficult to find around here and it took me awhile to accumulate...
  18. THANKS GIVING BASKET

    I made this basket a little while ago and it turned out perfect as a Thanksgiving present to our friends that invited us for dinner on monday which is our Canadian Thanksgiving . Just thought I show and post it here and wish all Canadians a happy Thanksgiving . The basket is made from...
  19. Deadblow mallet

    I built this deadblow mallet with *********************************** for the head, and hickory for the handle, wedged with a little bit of walnut. I followed a plan that I had saved on my computer from a long time ago, from Shop Notes magazine? I can't find the original plan anymore, just the scan I have. The pockets...
  20. Carved Elk Button ,Diamond Willow Hiker

    The Mountian Lion was carved into a spur on the elk button [what's a elk button ?] . There wasn't enough of the little spur to carve both sides of the face but I think I like the way it turned out better . When you turn the the stick you kind of discover the mountain lion hiding there. The elk...
