  1. Mallet

    Got bored and decided to turn some scrap into a new mallet. The handle is a little skinny, but the wood is pretty dense so it should be fine for light duty??? The handle goes a little over halfway through the head and is fastened with a dowel going through the head and into the handle.
  2. Microwave stand

    This project was more challenging than it looks. I made the front and back like a ladder which was pretty straight forward. The perimeter bars are glued to the legs and fastened with a screw through a pocket drilled hole. Prior to making these 'ladders' I dadoed 45 degree slots in the legs...
  3. My First Cabinet

    OK don't laugh but this is the first cabinet I built by myself when I was 12 or 13. I had built mostly tables until then and helped with some cabinets. Yeah I know the doors at the bottom are not straight. Cheap hinges bent when it was delivered, I replaced them and adjusted the doors.

  6. Team Jacob

    after seeing the video and some of the other jocks doing of these I had to do it myself. I thought I would be fun to add the TEAM JACOB thing at the end. This is a 2X4 piece of pine I had lying around. there's a knot that runs right through it and that pretty cool looking. thanks for...
  7. OTR Microwave Hood

    I took out some wall separating our alley kitchen from a hallway on the other side, then my wife decided we should get an OTR Microwave. I made this out of oak plywood and stained with Dark Walnut gel stain. I mounted up in the ceiling between 2 joists, then ran a couple 3/4" threaded rods...
  8. Shortening Kitchen Cabinet for Microwave

    My daughter Stacy had a range hood, with a cabinet above. She wants to install a microwave instead of the range hood. This required shortening the 30 inch tall cabinet by 10.5 inches. She wanted me to try to salvage the old cabinet versus buying or making a new one. I used a combination of...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm not sure where I might be supposed to post this so forgive me if it is in the wrong place. I have a 750 watt inverter and I want to use it on the microwave at the site below. It says it is a 700 watt microwave but when I look on the back of the unit it says 1025 watts. My question is...
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    I realize this isn't a wood-related question, but here goes … I've got a small microwave oven with a ~12" diameter glass turntable. It recently broke into two pieces, and I'd like to glue them back together. What kind of glue would hold up to microwave conditions? How about epoxy? Thanks in...
  11. Blogs
    Part 1 - A bit of a warning. I have noticed several enquiries and comments on Lumberjocks regarding the use of a microwave oven for the purpose of drying green wood, so I want to pass along a description of a recent event that happened to someone I know. For this posting, I will refer to this...

    Hollow Form Microwave Fun I turned a hollow form from green Ficus, 6"dia x 9" h more or less. If you are not familiar with Ficus, it's a very light, almost white wood, and holds a lot of water. Turning it is fun because it's all chips and curls. No dust. When done the finish turned piece is...

  14. Wood & Lumber
    hi i need to bend so 1/8" Italian Poplar just a little a bit further than it wants to. It always snaps right before I get the needed bend. As an experiment, I soaked it overnight in lukewarm water, and then i was able to bend it to the needed radius (and tighter). Anything that could be...
  15. Woodturning
    Well this is my first forum on Lumberjocks and I'm pretty excited about it. I am a junior at Clemson University, but in my free time I have been turning bowls for about a year now. I have some friends in the tree cutting business where I have gotten the majority of my bowl blanks from, but I...
  16. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Do you also sometimes do something in the shop that scares the heck out of you? I was busy with my router table and I started reaching my hand out to brush away some wood chips close to the spinning router bit! Fortunately I realised what I was doing and my hand did not go any further. The wood...
