  1. Art deco Tv Armoire with Zeppelin leg with original shop drawing

    Made this for an interesting fellow that happens to deal in vintage guitars. (Notice the guitars hanging on my shop wall) He saw my website piece that I have on my home page and wanted a similar yet unique cabinet. We toyed around with some different sides and legs and settled on this "Zeppelin"...
  2. small box

    I dropped my miter gage and wanted to check it to make sure it was still square. After I checked it I decided to go ahead and use the pieces of wood I used to check it with to make a small box as I hadn't made one in awhile. With no idea as to what this box was going to look like I re cut the...

    I'm building an oddly shape table that will be used as a kitchen bar. 8 ft long, 36 in tall, 16 in wide. The legs are 5/4" birch panels that span the width of the table top (also 5/4") for a design of clean lines. To keep a clean boxy look I'd like to join the legs to the table top with miter...
  4. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I am writing a report on box joints and I have been unable to find some of the information that I am looking for. I was hoping to include; various names, general information, purposes, description of the anatomy and the structural integrity, history, step-by-step execution with both hand and...
  5. Designing Woodworking Projects
    While in the shower, letting the sawdust sluice off me, I had a couple of thoughts. I'm making the Rodel chairs for our dining room, and yesterday, I made the template for routing out the back leg. http://lumberjocks.com/CaptainSkully/blog/13364 My first thought that a CNC router would make...
  6. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Every now and then it seems we run into some conflicts with members who are at odds for one reason or another. Some members are die hard craftsman who only want to see WOOD used in each post, others ask questions, share experiences and give out priceless information. Of course there are also the...

    My grandson has some purple heart with what looks to be an oak strip down the middle. He started it in 9th grade woodshop. It was going to be the bottom of a wagon, but now he wants to make a table out of it. It is about full 4/4×18" x 26" +/-, I didn't have a tape with me. It looks strong...
  8. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hello all, I am building a desk and had a question about leg stability. My desk is going to be about 20 inches wide, 37 inches long and 27 inches high. I wanted to build legs that were essentially two rectangles, flush with either end of the desk. See Picture attached. The leg rectangle would...
  9. Woodturning
    Hello everyone, I'm about to start a new project and I need some advice from our experienced turners. The table has these turned pedestals that I would like to build. I have the capabilities on my lathe to turn a 5 " radius circle so I should be able to handle the center turn. However my...

    I am designing a kitchen table that will seat 6. There will be four legs, one in each corner. To attach the legs to the skirt, there seem to be two general techniques. (1) Permanently attach the legs to the skirt (e.g., mortise and tenon) and attach the top the skirt with clips or another means...

    I recently got this 50-60 year old oak office desk for which I have in mind to restore the finish and put it into service. Its a great cool beast of a thing, very heavy and solid feeling. The right hand side has a neat spring loaded mechanism which was used to raise up a typewriter to normal...

    Showing my hand... One of three ideas I'm currently pondering involves this natural edged slab-o-pine in some way… approx 6' x 8-10" x 3" That's all I've got to say. (And nothing else to show. Really.)

    Test Drive The first installment of this blog is here due to LJ blogging technical issues… To make sure the dimensions are correct for our new table, we decided to do a little test drive. It didn't hurt that we're having eight people over for a Fourth of July BBQ. We ran over to the big box...

    The Design In response to Hank Gilpin's advice on my Jewelry Armoire in the October 2010 issue of Fine Woodworking, I decided to, instead of fixing the Jewelry Armoire, to design a new cabinet that implements Hank's suggestions. This "Asian Cabinet", as I am tentatively calling it, is smaller...

    80% Complete I was fortunate enough to be able to take off Christmas week and get a good start on my workbench. I've had the idea to build one in my head for a few months now, and have been slowly accumulating the parts and hardware necessary. My intention was to make it possible to take the...

    Moving South for the winter.... Admittedly I have lived in Ohio my entire life….and there are much colder places to live. Experiencing temps in the single digits with wind chills between -30 and -40 listening to the furnace barely kick off and being extremely thankful that the windows had been...

    The plans are in! Entry on 1/15/2016: Hi everyone! I am an avid steelhead fisherman in Southeast Michigan. The rivers down here are a little difficult to drift a float like I would prefer. It's hard to get into a good hole due to lots of overgrowth on the banks and the majority of the river...
