  2. Baby hammers

    I had first internet order (by Facebook, in my country) to make baby hammers of wood. The main term was to make them of one piece of wood, but I couldn't resist to make things a little complicated. I made them with stripes of apple and beech. I used bandsaw to cut them. Finish- food frendly...
  3. Walnut & Maple Wedding Time Capsule Box

    Hey All, I took a bit of hiatus over the hot summer because it was just too humid and sweaty in my garage to be in there for too long. About a year ago, a few months after we got engaged, my wife informed me that she wanted to do a Time Capsule thing for part of the ceremony. "Great! I can...

  5. Good Neighbor Tom's Valet box. Now with big ole finishing screed!

    I made this box for my neighbor Tom as a reward for the "too-many-to-count" times he has saved my bacon. The backstory is this. Tom has a background in engineering, with an immense technical knowledge. He is about my age (50-ish). Since moving into our neighborhood he and his wife Jeannie (who I...

    It's been a little while since I last posted pictures of wooden rings, so here's an update. These are some of the more recent wood combinations I've been experimenting with. There are so many possibilities with these things! :) Hawaiian Koa (shimmer feature) ring with offset Ziricote inlay...
  7. Cherry Crochet Hook Box

    This box is a Birthday gift for my Mom, she does a lot of Crochet Amigurumi (crochet figures) and wanted a good way to store her hooks. She has all kinds of hooks, metal ones, metal ones with handles and I make her some "fancy" wood ones (as she calls them). So I wanted to make her a nice box...
  8. Build a Better Box, Box.

    Inspired by the many great LJs boxmakers, recent FWW Magazine articles, and FWW's latest video series by Matt Kenney, I decided to explore this aspect of woodworking. I've made some artist's pastel boxes and a couple others a few years ago, but this time around I want to try to learn more about...

  10. Mountain Ash Wood Wedding Rings

    These wooden wedding rings were made from a Mountain Ash tree limb, which was sent to us by a very nice Montana couple. Contrast was achieved by using the Ash heartwood for the base and the lighter sapwood for the lining and inlay. We received the following from the customer: "It's a mountain...

My question is does anyone know if there is some kind of foam i can put into the bottom that will form to the shape of the pieces when the are pressed into the foam. If anyone has other ideas i...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have just purchased a spokeshave kit to build my own beauty. I am just starting out and want to make most of my hand-tools. There are some amazing shop-made tools on this site. I would like to make all (or most) of my tools/handles from the same species of wood/metal. BRASS seems to be a...
  13. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I read the "bandsaw box: felt or flock" topic posted by johnjoiner but still have some questions, and a request. I'm just finishing up a jewelry box for my daughter. The compartments are all rectangles, nothing tricky. Doug Stowe recommends flocking for irregular shaped, e.g.., bandsaw boxes...

My mom is doing some amazing bead work. one time when I went with her to the beads store, I saw a small box/cabinet that the store used to store (no pun intended) the beads in, and thought it would make for a great way for my my to have all her...

    How to flock a box without flocking. Got an empty box that needs some kind of lining. How about fabric? I have never used flocking to line the inside of a box before so I can tell you if it's any easier the my method. I do know that my method gives you an unlimited choice of colors and...

  17. Hand Tools
    Well today I finished rehabbing my old Bailey #5 planner. It only took me 2 days to complete. This was handed down to me by 3 generations of wood workers in my family, one to the next with my Dad handing it off to me. It looked terrible, here is what I started with. You can see I had my...
  18. Wood & Lumber
    I believe these pallet slats are Jatoba. Any other opinions? I'm worried about bringing this wood into my shop. One of the planks has played host to a bunch of critters. Should I just wave this wood on it's merry way to the fire pit? Any advice would be appreciated. I'd kind of...
