  1. Bowl from marblewood

    Bowl from marblewood. Difficult wood to work with! Very fragile and brittle, it broke and chipped frequently. An awful lot of work, beautiful result, but I won't be buying any more marblewood :)

  3. Boxes

    Here is my first attempt at making a box using box joints. I built a jig to use on my router table. This box is intended to hold napkins on the dinner table. I've made four so far a gave them away. I finished it with eight hand rubbed coats Formby's Tong oil and then about six coats of Briwax.

    Made this Ear Ring Holder for my Wife today. It's turned from some Birdseye Maple, with a Marblewood insert in the top tray, I'm not sure of the species of wood that I used for the column. It measurs 6" tall and 5" in diameter. I dished out both the upper and lower trays slightly so that it...

  8. Designing Woodworking Projects
    For my double double bed project, with the exception of the posts, I've not started to cut wood for the headboards. Here's what I have now: All wood is red oak. The posts are 3.5×3.5, the (curved) top rail is made from 6/4, and the top plate will be 1×5 or so. Here's the problem: It...
  9. Site Help and Suggestions
    I was wondering if there is a way to search for things (like projects) with pictures? When you search for a project you get a huge list of descriptions of each project, which means you have to click on each description to see what it is, what it looks like, etc, etc. Maybe I'm missing...

  12. Woodworking Skill Share
    I recently completed my first glider. I patterened it from a porch swing that I have been making for awhile. To turn it into a glider I purchased some 7.5 inch metal glides specifically for gliders from Rockler. I used some features from glider patterns in magazines and adapted to my swing. The...
  13. Woodturning
    So call me a sucker… but while making a "quick" run to Woodcraft to get a wine bottle stopper kit, I perused the turning blanks and was smitten by a 6×6x3 Marlblewood bowel blank, thinking it would make a very nice candy bowel for the Mrs. As is typical for Woodcraft, the blank is covered by...

    Hello, my first post and first band saw. I picked this up on CL for next to nothing, thought it would be a great first saw. It seems to work fine after a good cleaning. However the guides are chewed up and the thrust bearing is..well gone. Where can I get guides for this as Sears no longer...
  16. Scrollsawing
    Ok, Im relatively new to scrolling, I have a (cheap) Ryobi 16" scroll saw bought used off Craigslist(like 90% of my shop was). The saw came with a handful of blades which seem to work OK for now. However, Im always looking to upgrade and want to buy some Olson blades. I use Olson blades on my...

  18. Hand Tools
    I see many benches with dovetails joining an end cap to the front apron…are these mostly for show? Sometimes it looks like it is combined with a few bolts also holding the end cap on. Is this some form of breadboard? Is that how they account for wood movement? What's the general approach...
