  1. #4 frame

    Made this for my wife's boss. They are "Team 4" so she asked me to make a frame that incorporated the number 4. This is what I came up with. I made it in a rush so I didnt lacquer it, but I wish I had.
  2. Business card holder

    This is a business card holder for a vendor's display booth. The lady sells Gold Canyon candles and this is "GC" is part of one of their logos. I made it out of some Makore that I had laying around. I used dark walnut stain and 3 coats of lacquer. The wood is an inch think, so I had quite a few...
  3. Spalted Pecan Keepsake Box

    This is a keepsake box made of spalted pecan with spalted maple splines. The walls on this box are right at 3/8" which really lends itself to the display quality of the box, from the top of the box disappears and the contents take center stage. The wood has enough character to take center stage...
  4. Router Guide for the Wood lathe

    This is a router guide box for use in the wood lathe to slot/flute wood projects in the chuck or between centers. It is to be used in conjunction with a plunge router with a 5/8" bushing on the bottom. It is adjustable up and down to accommodate a 10" max diameter piece. The top plate is also...
  5. Desk Name Plate/segmentation

    Nameplate made for a coworker. She said she loved butterflies, so I just ran with it. Getting alot better with using a spray gun and lacquer. Just takes practice I think. First time I have tried to bend Lexan. Pretty easy to work with actually.
  6. Tool Bit Packages

    I made these packs to hold the tool bits I got from our scrap metal drive at church. It is a real shame to throw all these away but someone saw no value in them. These are like cigarette packs only 10 to a pack instead of 20. I don't think I'll every have to grind another bit from a new blank...
  7. Last of my Christmas boxes

    Well, not a box in the typical sense…A very good friend of mine collects knives and wanted a case to display them in. He does leatherwork and created saddle bags, a sissy bar bag, and a tank bra for my motorcycle, so I guess you could say that I owed him big time. The display case is made out...
  8. Aphgan Display case

    Mother asked for a case she could display and store her crochet work in. Built this display case. Made out of oak, lined with cedar veneer, top, back and bottom. The sides and front of the case are 1/4" lexan in a routed groove except for the top which just rests in a slot. I wanted to make it...
  9. South African Cat House

    I married a cat lady so built her a cat house…...unlike any that I am familiar with ;) Surprisingly, this turned into quite an engineering challenge. The top ladder actually gives stability to the entire structure. The cats seem to approve and the all black beauty on the perch has assumed the...
  10. Marquetry Art (Italian Method)

    A member of my woodworkers guild is a highly accomplished Marquetry Artist. He was kind enough to put on a class for us, and this is what I made. Marquetry is a very beautiful way to express wood grain, pattern and color. It was also very difficult for an old fumble fingers like me to manipulate...
  11. "With a Twist" old fashion card table

    This is the top from my circle cutter router table jig. We have some walnut, asian mahogany, and even a little piece of alder that found it's way into the composition. I wrapped it all up with some bubinga and four maple feet. It's finished with some good ole tough oil (best finish there is)...
  12. Basic Cross Cut Sled with Guard

    Pretty simple, not much to share except: Lexan beats the pants off acrylic/plexiglass as far as toolability goes. Large scrap pieces can be purchased on ebay for a fraction of retail The thick hard maple fences rock my socks off and are still perfectly square after being dropped off...
  13. Scrap walnut bit box

    Got a set of self centering pilot drills in the other day. They were a good value but just came in a blister pack. Rather than let them rattle around and get damaged / dull / lost I decided to make a little 1-1/2" x 2-3/4" x 5" box to store them in. In my shop about all we discard is sawdust! I...
  14. Two Very Different Name Plates

    They both let you know who's sitting at the desk, but in very different ways! The wooden one is mine - made from a piece of very knotty two inch thick cedar. This was done on my scrollsaw and took a weekend of work. I dipped it in a poly-oil mix to seal it. The other I did for my co-worker...

  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a Delta contractor table saw. If you spin the blade by hand you can hear the arbor making a click sound each time as it goes around. It sounds normal when running, probably because the clicks are so close together and it's going much faster. I looked under there and can't see anything...
  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I posted a gloat about a freebie score I made on enough plexi and acrylic it made my truck squat a little getting it home ( http://lumberjocks.com/topics/217610#reply-3641802 ). The pieces range from four inches square to sixteen inches square, a few inches long to four feet long, 1/8" wide to...
  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    Polycarbonates are great for making things. Lexan, a GE product, was specifically created for bend-ability in a good sheet metal brake. I've made lots of brackets, hangers and fixtures, it sure solves a lot of problems. However, I've never had much success with forming Lexan with the use of...

  20. Blogs
    Plexiglass Jigs I was thinking whether or not to make this a continuation of the veneering bog, however many items here have more to do with vacuum systems, than veneering. Hence a new Blog! Photo one is a Demilune Hall Table top jig. Photo two is a 30 inch long tee square...
