  1. 12 Volt Floor Lamp

    Here is a unique project that I came up with. I took a 12 volt landscape lighting fixture, ordered a longer stem that matched the original (48") and built a wooden base for a floor lamp. I housed a 120 to 12 volt mini transformer in the base. I have it plugged in to a timer so that it turns...
  2. Candle Holders

    Here are a couple of candle holders that were made from some old oak boards that were almost used for firewood. Not too fancy, but functional.
  3. Plant Hangers

    These plant hangers make great giveaways…especially during Spring season. I copied this pattern from my neighbors plant hanger and made a couple of spare templates from 1/4" hardboard. Now their a snap to make. They hold 4 6" clay pots perfectly.
  4. Ring Box

    I made several of these for a couple of upcoming craft shows. Made from some old oak true 2×4's. Finish is three coats of homemade wipe-on poly. Used Minwax polyurethane thinned with mineral spirits.
  5. Cards & Dice Box

    I made a cards & dice box to give to my brother-in-law when I visit CT in August. I used red oak with walnut splines. Left it natural except for three coats of brushed on polyurethane and a shot of paste wax. I added a California quarter to the lid. Thanks for looking.
  6. Teak Swim Steps

    Teak Swim Steps for the back of a boat. Finish is teak Oil. The owners were very happy. Keep 'em smilin'
  7. Bass Speaker Cabinet

    I made this bass speaker cabinet at the request of a friend. Most of my projects don't require plans and a cut list but I was able to use them in this case. There are 45 biscuits, so I cut 90 slots hoping that everything would line up correctly. Started with a 5×5 sheet of 1/2" Baltic Birch so...
  8. 2 Pot Plant Hanger

    I made these to add to my craft fair selection. They went over really well. I also make the 4 pot version.
  9. First Bandsaw Box

    Made this for a birthday gift, used Redwood with Golden Pecan stain and brushed on Spar varnish. I made the heart w/arrow template in Microsoft Word. I learned some things while cutting out this first one, but I think it will still be appreciated.
  10. Shot Glass Display Case

    My coworker asked if I can make a shot glass display case. Naturally I said "Yes". Well better late than never. I milled everything down from 3/4 stock that was from cabinet shop cutoffs. Finished it tonight. It actually looks better than my photography shows.
  11. Sander Cart

    This rolling sander cart is handy in a small shop. Added locking casters for portability. Joined with Pocket hole screws, wood screws and biscuits for the drawer. Wood was free and some from the scrap bin. Drawer face is laminate flooring.
  12. Replacement Doors

    Made a couple of replacement cabinet doors for a work friends rental apt. First doors so I wanted to post them so that they are in my list of gallery projects. Take care.
  13. bench

    Another outdoor bench i made of treated wood.
  14. Clock Restoration

    Here is a clock that I made for a friend to restore an original that fell from the wall and broke into pieces. The original had a plastic housing. Fortunately the glass, clock mechanism and decorative columns all stayed in tact. I used Poplar for the top, bottom and sides; Birch ply for the...
  15. Odds n Ends

    Just a few things I made for family and friends at Christmas. The second picture is a simple version of candle holders degoose posted a while back. The third pic is an idea from Houtje using up small scraps and cutoffs. The clock was made for my nephew's girlfriend's parents. As normal, that...
  16. Wine Cork Trivet

    It's great to know people who enjoy a glass of wine now and then…It makes this project really economical. I made this trivet using wine corks, pine trim, 1/4" plywood and felt feet. With some minor router work to give it some form. I have several more in the making.
  17. Cigar Ashtray

    Made a quick cigar ashtray for personal use a while back. Wanted to add it to my project page. Oak with poly.
  18. Plant Stand

    I made this plant stand out of pine and stained it with Minwax Cherry stain. This was my one and only attempt up to this point for mounting a tile into a solid table top. Also my first shot at the taper jig. I used pocket hole joinery for a speedy assembly.
  19. Turn Table Dust Cover

    Made a quick dust cover for a turn table upon request. Used Oak Ply approx. 3/16" thick. Finished with clear spray paint due to time constraints. The clear paint turned out a lot better than expected.
  20. BBQ Grill Handle

    Here's a specialty project that came about when a friends BBQ grill blew over in a heavy wind. The original plastic handle broke so I made a replacement out of Redwood. Added a light coat of Cherry stain and some Spar Urethane. Good as new!
