  1. Roubo Workbench (Hand tools Only)

    In my attempt to move over to a hand tool lifestyle, I decided to upgrade my workbench to a Roubo, since they are all the rage. This is Roy Underhill's version. I don't have his book, so I had to redesign it to fit what I remember it as, keeping his basic vision as a base to work off of. I biult...
  2. A few more canes

    Here are a couple more canes. After I made the one for my mother (posted here), my grandmother and my stepmother both wanted one as well. The one for my stepmom, Paulette, is made with a jatoba shaft, purpleheart and holly transition collar, and curly orchard cherry handle. My dad and stepmom...
  3. Oak Bed With A "TWIST"

    I made this oak bed frame to complete my bedroom set. The original design was from wood magazine Issue 187 November 2008: But I didn't really like the pencil-posts or canopy top, then I found a video from St Pierre Woodworking on how to make the spiral legs. To make the legs round, I made...
  4. Morris inspired chair

    This is my next project. My couch potato recliner is on its last legs (No more buying expensive yet cheaply made furniture for this boy….I'm gonna make some sawdust). I'm getting the wood for it this weekend so i should post completed photos in a couple of weeks. The great thing about...
  5. Picnic-Styled Coffee Table

    This piece is made with stock pine and was originally designed to fit a small apartment living room. It was my first piece I built, using a handsaw and a drill with alot of sandpaper, and as such has a special place in my heart. It has a picnic table look, and I have since designed and built...
  6. New Leg Vise

    I have waited for this for several months now. When I first built this Nicholson-style workbench, I installed a Veritas twin-screw as an end vise and that has worked fantastically. I had downloaded the measurements for a large maple vise screw and nut from Lake Erie Tool so I knew I could...
  7. ROUBO BENCH - DANTA WOOD - SELF ADJUSTING HOMEMADE VISE

    Hey guys! regards from Spain… after reading one million posts about roubo benches, buy and read the master book another million, and making space in my workshop I finally decided to go ahead and build it, traditional style, drawbore pins et all. Top wood is Danta, an african wood, hard as hell...
  8. Stool

    I made this stool and some benches in the same style for extra seats for a party. Not so hard to make, but I learned a lot about angles and I found out that I need better jigs next time.
  9. Replacing a Carved Walnut Steinway Piano Cabriole Leg

    Project Story: This was a challenging and stressful project. Now that it is behind me, I can add this project to my list of odd, unique, and crazy items that I have tried to build over the years. Why the stress? First off, I wasn't completely sure that I was up to the challenge. I went to...
  10. Table Leg

    A table leg I me and my dad made for a co-worker of mine. Tree pieces of mahogany glued together.
  11. 2 in 1 Tapering Jig for that Chair Project

    I made this dedicated jig to facilitate cutting the tapers on the legs for those 10 chairs I'll be making for the table which I made for my church. With this jig I can cut both the taper on each leg, plus the taper on the upper part of the back leg. It slides in the miter slot so the cut will...
  12. Maple Burl Cap Table

    I love maple burl caps. The grain and figure amazes me. Check out the second picture to get a load of the grain on the legs. As you can see in the last picture I don't care if it's barked off here and there. This is definately rustic for your hacienda.
  13. Table leg progress update

    Here is a table leg progress update: This is the main leg with the loosly fitted side legs, and a shot of the top-surface. (I only made the center main leg, the three side legs where done by a co-worker) Finished product to follow - Frank Boer
  14. First Posted Project.

    Hi All, Well as you can see by the title this is the first of a few projects I plan to post. The only reason I choose this one is it is current. My wife has wanted new living room furniture for a while. We went to Woodworkers Source and she looked over the entrance wall for the type of wood...
  15. Bubinga Waterfall Leg Coffee Table

    Finished this one back in December last year and forgot to post it. Coffee table I made by re-sawing and book-matching a very nice piece of quartersawn bubinga that has a hint of sapwood on the edges. Continuous waterfall style leg and a metal leg I welded up on the opposite end. Love this one...
  16. China Cabinet

    Clearly there is a conspiracy among digital cameras. I KNOW I took both these photos with the camera in the same position, then corrected the second one when it came out sideways by rotating it, and it STILL uploads sideways. Anyway, this started out as a bookcase. The carcase is 3/4 plywood...
  17. Jobillo Hallway Table with Waterfall Leg

    Jobillo hallway table with a continuous "waterfall" leg on one end. I hand made the complimentary steel U-leg out of some scrap metal I had and welded it up. The table had holes throughout with were caused by beetles boring through which I loved. I filled these with an epoxy mix and made a...
  18. Queen Anne Lowboy Dressing Table

    Queen Anne Dressing Table Here's my latest project. I got the idea and inspiration while visiting a local cabinetmaker with club members from the "New Jersey Woodturners Association" earlier this year. I joined the club in April and how been wow'ed by them. The guys at the club are one...
  19. Natural Edge End Table (Olive Wood)

    This is a natural edge end table I did for some commission work for a co-worker. It is made out of Olive Wood with waterfall style legs and continuous grain. Miter joints were made using a Festool Domino. 25 inches tall and 25 inches wide. Finished with 2 coats of SealCoat Shellac and 4 coats of...
  20. The Alley Workbench

    After a long day of cleaning and reorganizing the work space, I was able to fit my tool cabinet above my workbench, and setup a decent work area. although this workbench is not 100% complete (some details that needs to be finalized), it is in functional state, and I consider it a finished...
