  4. Gazebo Fly-Through Platform Bird Feeder

    I build these large fly-through bird feeders about 10 years ago. The first one I designed after I had patched up an old Amish-built one for a coworker. That bird feeder was quite large and had a copper roof on it. I really liked how practical it was - you simply toss bird seed inside and the...
  5. Wooden Block Sets for my Kids Preschool

    I made these basic 5 Piece wood blocks sets (4 rectangles and 1 square) out of A leftover board of tiger maple. They fit perfectly in a sandwich bag, and I am working on a printout to put in it. My wife thinks it would be tacky to say they can contact me to get custum wood toys, and direct them...

    This one-room, rustic bungalow offers a front porch, vented ceilings and floor, a frosted epoxy front door (because i don't know how to use the pen-flame thingy to torch out the bubbles!) and a couple of snacks slivering along the roof! Like RD, i came to make a birdhouse at all, and have a...

    I built this cutting board using the plans/instructions from the wood whisperer website. board plans I decided to use walnut instead of purpleheart for my cutting board. Other than that, I pretty much followed the instructions as-is...
  10. Maple Coffee Grinder

    I've been working on this guy for a little while, in between a million other things, but I'm finally done! I used 3 coats of tung oil for the finish, it shouldn't get much abuse and I think the oil really makes it look good. I took it for a test run tonight, 20gr of some Caveman White Gold...

  12. Oak Sitting Bench

    This project was a tough one, to say the least. It felt like nothing went right from start to finish… espically the finish. In fact I had to come here and post a forum to finish this dang thing. In the end, thing's came together good enough.
  13. 2x6 Bowl

    When I recently bought my house the former owner had left a pile of mostly unusable lumber in the basement. Some of it looked like it had been down there for decades. I found a short construction grade 2×6 in the pile that was pretty beat up. After examining it for a while, I thought I found...
  14. Dust cyclone - with house hold trash bags post

    Dust cyclone with house hold trash bags Yes I got tired of the mess each time I had to clean the shop vac when it was full. Also I was fascinated by these cyclones, have to admit I am a child. So when the prices for one of these finally hit the floor here in Europe I had to give it a try. Blog...
  15. Grape Press

    My neighbor brought me this grape press that had been in a fire. I wish I had taken a before picture of it in tack but I didn't. He promised me wine if I made it usable. I had a week before the grapes were ready. I tried cutting the compound angles on my table saw and 12" sliding miter saw...

    I gave my 7-year-old son a bunch of skateboard parts for Christmas last year after he said he wanted to build his own board from scratch. I finally got around to getting the skateboard veneers over the summer (parent epic fail), and we were off. I provided a guiding hand (or hands) throughout...
  17. Bubinga Dining Table

    The legs were a major lathe challenge for me as I do not have a computerized lathe. As we all know, it's easy to make the first one but a bear to get 4 that pretty well match. I added drawers for cutlery, serviettes and candles. I just used offcut hardwood for the drawer cases as they are not...
