  1. no finish vs mineral oil

    Getting comfortable turning bigger things and using my jaw chucks. The candle holder on left is completely unfinished, just well sanded (which is why my hand print showed up… sigh...). But hey, that's what Momma wanted! On the right I used mineral oil and I really like how it turned out. The...
  2. Another end grain cutting board (3 woods)

    Made these two for my sister while she was here visiting last summer. Woods are wenge, maple and jarrah. Design was a bit of a f*#& up. Finished with a combination of mineral oil and beeswax.
  3. Side Table - The light and the dark. Greene and Greene Side Table

    When I decided to build this table I had one purpose in mind, to break the misconception of making a table from Popular wood. Not that Popular would be a unique wood, but more that this particular piece of popular was breaking the mold on the conception of what this species of wood looked like...
  4. Mini Cutting Board

    This was a project I did by hand with a sanding block last night from pen blanks. I'm learning about cutting boards at the moment, so I started with a small onion or tomato cutting board. The last picture is before oiling. You can view my step-by-step on this from start to finish at...
  5. Olive Charcuterie Boards

    A neighborhood friend had an olive tree cut down in his yard several years ago. He had the trunk sliced into cookies and has been using them as stepping stones in his garden for years. He realized there may be nice grain in there so he asked me if I might be able to make a serving board or two...
  6. Cheap (there's a surprise) quick & easy ripsled

    I needed a quick way to true up some pallet boards that I wanted to use on a project (more on that later) and used a couple of hold downs (almost bought them at a woodworking store, but discovered some at Harbor Freight for about $3.50 each…have I ever mentioned that I was cheap?) I took 2...
  7. Pressure Treated Pine fence

    This is a fence that i built in the Historic part of town.The homeowner designed the fence and i took on the process of building it.It was one of the most time consuming fences that i had built up until that time.The Gate and the posts around it are 6×6 and the rest were made of 4×4.The rails...
  8. live edge bread board...with a question

    I decided to experiment with the live edge stuff. I had a black walnut log that was sitting outside for about 6 months. It's a small one, only 6" diameter. I split the log and then planed down both side. It has two cracks, one on each end. My question is…..Will the board continue to split if it...
  9. Bonnet Top Highboy in Genuine Mahogany

    Here is this years pride and joy! After I finished the Lowboy, I was ready for another challenge. I originally wanted to build another lowboy, in a different species, but started contemplating a Highboy. So I ordered the plan from New Yankee, and a set of legs, and here it is. Every aspect...

  11. Cedar Shot cups

    All natural cedar shot glasses (cups???). Nothing special here, cedar with mineral oil. It IS, however, the first thing to sell on my Etsy page!!! (well, first thing to sell to someone I DON'T know anyway…)
  12. Floating Cherry Dresser

    Just finished up a 6 drawer dresser I have been chipping away at for the last month. It is a modern/contemporary style piece that is attached to the wall studs to create the float look. The whole unit is made out of solid cherry wood that was gifted to me by my wonderful neighbor who had a...
  13. Long Grain Cutting Board

    This cutting board is made from maple and walnut. This was the first project that I was able to do because of my new Ridgid planer. It was so neat after gluing the pieces together, to plane it, and have it come out, like magic, all the same thickness and actually shiny. I gave it to my son who...
  14. Maple and Purpleheart Cutting Board

    I have been thinking of several ideas for smaller items to build, especially with Christmas coming soon. I decided to build a cutting board, and was excited to see all the different varieties online. I had a nice piece of Maple left over from one of my projects, and thought it would make a...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hello all, I am using a DeWalt planer and have a question for you knowledgeable folks…. The infeed and outfeed tables are about 1/8" below the flat table of the planer. I have both ends of the feed tables adjusted to the same height as the flat table, so when planing long boards this is not a...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hey all. My man and I recently finished reno'ing an old house, and our kitchen counter tops are old reclaimed wood from a Brazilian bridge. The grain is very tight, and the color is quite dark and red. We've had a few rounds of finishing it--the Mr. spent 6 hours on it and said "It's done!"...

    First Steps BEFORE I START, IF YOU READ THIS, AND CAN OFFER ADVICE ON IMPROVING THIS WITHOUT BUYING ANYTHING OVER $25, I'D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR ADVICE. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!! I bought some clearance pen blanks from Rockler (Pau Ferro, Indian Rosewood, and Cherry, I think). Not having any...

    Applying a Varnish In the process of refinishing my dining room table, I've learned that I am not very good at brush-on finishes. I should have known, as I hate painting too. The table itself wasn't an indicator as it was actually pretty easy. A broad, flat surface; it's hard to screw that...

    Very unique piece of Popular Wood The Mason Dixon Woodworkers bought some popular lumber from a local sawmill operator. We picked up the wood and it was stored in our material storage building. As we started to use it I noticed that a lot of the boards had spalting but even stranger it had...
