  1. Loose Tenon Mortise Jig

    used up a bunch of old plywood cutoffs, purchased some t-track, borrowed the toggle clamps from the drill press table and now have a loose tenon mortise jig that will do vertical pieces, horizontal pieces (complete with removable extension wings, 4th photo) and compund angle pieces. Made...
  2. Mortising Jig - Max Version

    TPro Mortising Jig: I decided to build a custom mortising jig recently. I really like loose tenon joinery as its strong and to me easier than traditional mortise and tenons. As always, money for WW (at my place) is in short supply. So, buying a Festool Domino is not in my foreseeable future...
  3. Loose Tenon Mortising Jig - Tested and Improved

    This is the Loose Tenon Mortising Jig I posted earlier. I did test it and made a few improvements. The major improvement was the addition of a "rabbeted" piece in the back of the jig (see the second photo) to keep the plastic sled from tipping forward during the cut. I made the rabbet shallow...
  4. Wooden Toy Car, Hot Rod, 32 Ford Sedan, Green, Version 2 Flat

    This version is pretty much the same as my previously posted green 32 Ford Sedan. The big difference is the top coat. This one has Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic Flat sprayed as the last coat. There is a very big diffrence inthe the way they look but in a photo I have to look very hard to tel...
  5. Mortising Jig - My Version

    I always wanted to a jig for making loose or slip-tenon mortises and I didn't have $800 laying around for one, so like true a Lumberjock, I set out to make one. I wanted a jig for production work so I tried to make the jig easy to use and incorporate features that make repeatable cuts. I didn't...
  6. A Simple Pine Bench

    Made out of a couple of 2×6s. This was not a complicated build but it represents a couple "firsts" for me in my woodworking journey. 1. My first time laminating boards to make the top and legs 2. My first time making curves (for the aprons) 3. My first time using loose tenon joinery I used a...
  7. Barrister bookcase

    My mom has been wanting a barrister bookcase for several years, but was always hesitant to buy one because of the price. I built this one to give to her as a Christmas gift last year. The style of the bookcase matches her broyhill attic heirloom furniture. When her and my dad got married, they...
  8. Bathroom vanity and matching laundry room cabinet

    We built our house back in 2012, but recently got around to completely finishing the basement. I decided to build a bathroom vanity and matching cabinet for the laundry room. Also, I decided to do the rest of the work in the bathroom as well (tile, floor, etc…) This was one of those projects...
  9. Greene and Greene Style Tile Frame in Quartersawn Sycamore

    We purchased a pair of tiles made by artist John Beasley of Medicine Bluff Studios at Nest & Company in New Jersey. The tiles (measuring 4"w x 8" h) are titled "Mother to Be" and "Leaving the Nest". The frame is Greene and Greene style made from quartersawn sycamore with ebony accents. The...
  10. Danish cord entry bench

    This is a two-sitter entry bench with a seat made of Danish cord. I borrowed the idea from projects posted here on LJ, mostly this one. The weaving technique, materials, tools and patterns are explained in this great video by Ed Hammond. His tutorial seems to be the only one that covers the...
  11. Mission Style Bench

    Just finished yesterday, a mission style (I think) bench. My wife wants a new dining table and chairs similar to one posted here by Pintodelux (as I recall it was by Willie Landry Designs), but she also wanted a bench to go with it. Before I just did into chair making, I figured I would do...
  12. Simple Bed Design

    So I had this idea of making a bed (queen sized) for my son. I wanted to do something interesting with the design, so I had this idea of making a splayed leg (like a spider). The problem is that in order to get the grain direction to go in the right directions at the right places, I couldn't...
  13. Doggie Dish Holder

    Our dog Mowgli likes it, and I like not having food and water bowls pushed all over the kitchen (and, having water spilled all over my freshly refinished hardwood floors! grrr!) Win-win! I need to take more photos as I go…but it's pretty simple. Made of pine because I have a lot of it here...
  14. Skinny Sofa Table

    This table measures 56×5 1/2×21 1/2 inches. Yes, only five and a half inches wide. It is a little "tippy" but is made to fit between a sofa and a window. These measurements were specifically requested by my son and the obvious limitation was known in advance. Construction is simple and...
  15. Jatoba Pub Table and Chairs

    A long but extremely fun journey. The table is shown in my other project/blog. Chairs now completed and delivered. Wood is Jatoba with ebony inlays and an olive wood burl veneer on the top of the table cabinet. All loose tenon joinery. Thanks for looking. Enjoy.
  16. CANVASBACK (Lifesize)

    This duck is carved from basswood, in two pieces…... the head and the body. He is a very powerful swift flyer. He measures about 16" long to tip of bill x 6 3/4" wide x 6" high. He is sought after mainly because of his taste. They say he makes a good meal. Too bad for him. THANKS FOR VIEWING MY...
  17. White oak doll bed

    Just a simple project - A doll bed for 18" dolls that I built for an auction. Made from quarter sawn white oak with loose tenon joinery and solid walnut panels. Finish is sprayed lacquer. The piece did well at the auction and raised some $ for a good cause. The real magic here is the beautiful...
  18. Workshop Doors

    When I built my workshop I didn't have necessary experience and machines to make doors that I could be proud. Started with some scraps of wood, nailed together just to keep the workshop surrounded and where they are until today. This temporary doors began dragging, bending, don't closing well...
  19. Wood & Lumber
    Question 1: For the purposes of making occasional patio tables, If I cut cedar lumber into smaller pieces (I need to do that eventually anyway) will they dry faster? And/or will they be more inclined not to warp or check because of being smaller, shorter? I'm in an area of higher humidity...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi All, So I have two Festool Domino 500s. I purchased one off of CL and the other online. The previous owner of the used one has used it quite a bit but other than saw dust, it's well kept. When comparing the sound of the old one to the new one, the new one is louder and higher pitched. It...
