  1. egg box

    I built a box for carrying egg cartons for a couple friends with 16 chickens, using oak I got from their property.The structure is based on this tool box http://lumberjocks.com/projects/154370, but with dovetails. I put dovetails on everything. They refer to the flock as veloci-chickens so I put...
  2. Raised garden bed from Cedar slabs I milled

    These are some raised garden beds I made for the wife. Pretty simple design, there is (4) 8'x4' boxes around a small octagon herb garden in the middle. It is all made of 8/4 cedar planks with one live edge for looks. It is nice to have a Woodmizer LT40 to cut my own slabs to do this kind of...
  3. Appreciating Grandma's Cooking - Recipe Box

    Just before my grandfather died I was able to write him a letter to try to capture some of what he had meant to me. This box is a non-verbal attempt to express some of the same thoughts for my grandmother. I will be adding a verbal attempt too, but this was the first step. The wood is walnut...
  4. Art and Crafts / Mission Style Table Lamp

    I built this lamp to replace the log lamp (see previous project). My wife never liked the previous lamp, so I thought I'd build her a new one for her birthday. I call this "arts and crafts" and/or "mission style" although I'm using a non-traditional wood for the lamp: jatoba finished with...
  5. Who doesn't love Christmas Story & little Ralphie?

    I made this leg lamp for my brother a few years ago. Will admit that I felt like a pervert when I had to put my hand up this great trophy and turned it on. My only regret is that I had to use a shoe with such a bulky heel to drill and snake the cord through. Besides, they were the least...
  6. Chest of Drawers

    This was a really fun project to make. The lumber was taken from trees I cut down, milled on a homemade bandsaw mill and air dried for several years. The primary wood is walnut with the secondary being poplar from a tree taken down by a storm alongside a local roadway. There is so much wood...
  7. Black Walnut Jewelry Box

    Well, Its been a while but here is my latest. This box was made for a customer out of Black Walnut. I milled the wood myself so as to cut down on some of the cost. This was a lot of fun as I did all that by hand. No power tools for that process. In fact, my power tools kind of died on me so most...
  8. Rough milled red cedar as deck skirting.

    I cut quite a bit of cedar from around my property and rough milled it leaving the bark intact. I cut pieces and set them vertically as skirting for a couple of decks I've worked on recently. I framed them in treated 2×6 on one and left them fully exposed on the other. I like them both petty...
  9. Finishing
    Hey Guys, I took up woodworking this past year as a hobby. I've found some success, selling a few pieces for just enough to start some new projects. Of course, being fairly new to this trade sometimes I have no idea what I'm doing! I scroll through the posts here on LJ, reading others questions...
  10. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    We all want to build custom furniture. It's not always easy though, well not for me anyway. I'm not talking technical side. I'm talking numbers; the cost, the labor, the profit, calculating the price. Working out the cost of materials is still OK, but how do you figure the time it will take to...

    Calling All Texas Lumberjocks... Hey Guys, I told a friend I'd try and sell some of his black walnut so here's the offer. I'm trying to put together a package deal since he wants to sell all 7000 bf of it in one fell swoop, of course it doesn't have to be all one buyer. Anyway the wood is...
  12. Wood & Lumber
    I am helping a "retired" woodworking parent with removing unused raw materials from his woodshop and thought of LumberJocks as a possible venue to post the hardwood lumber material we have to see if there is an interested buyer in the active woodworking community in Long Island, New York. I am...
  13. Wood & Lumber
    What's up jocks! I scored some pretty hefty pecan logs and am planning on having them cut into slabs to make tables and what not. I'm going to have them milled pretty thick and the only thing I'm a little bit worried about is the drying process. I don't on a kiln nor do I have access to one so...
