  1. Miniature Birdhouse

    This is my submission for the birdhouse contest. I decided to do something different and miniaturize it. I had been thinking about trying to build a miniature bandsaw box around the same size, and also wanted to build a birdhouse for the contest. The bandsaw box fell by the wayside, but I...
  2. Hammer pulling a wooden nail

    When I showed my middle school students the original hammer, they insisted it needed to be pulling a nail. Like them I am unable to leave well enough alone and this is the result. dimensions are approximate: 1.3" high by 1.5" wide by .75 deep
  3. miniature Beckwith pump organ

    This is a project from about ten years ago. It is a replica of a pump organ that has been in the family for almost 100 years. My sister had it for several years, but got one that was in better playing condition. I got the old one so it would stay in the family, but wanted my sister to have...
  4. Sorry to be away so long... Been making Babies!

    Well, I have not been on LumberJocks much lately. I have been saving up my strength for some marathon baby making sessions. Sometimes I'm too tired, but it feels really good to crank them out. They are so smooth and smell good too. Here are a few of my babies /> This one is Zebrawood. It...
  5. Outhouse for little people

    My Mother has a nice back yard, but it has an ugly old well casing sticking up in the middle of it. I couldn't stand it any more. I browsed the internet for ideas, squished them all together and came up with this. It is 14" square at the base and about four feet tall. My plans consisted of a...
  6. Cherry piano music box

    This is a cherry piano that I made for the wife's birthday. Plan was from an old copy of scrollsaw and woodworking magazine. First time really using cherry. Other than the mild scorching on the scrollsaw, it is really nice to work with. Also my first time using shellac. Many thanks to...
  7. Gnome was busy getting ready for winter

    Remember the Gnome door I built a while back? Well over the summer one moved in and made himself to home (yes, he's a lonely bachelor). I heard some activity out there today and the wife discovered that he had a fireplace chimney installed, has a bundle of chopped firewood and a snow shovel on...

  9. Mission Library Table Easy Refinish

    We got this tired old table in January 2012. I did not want to face another stripping job and had heard about a technique involving a solvent and steel wool that cleans and revitalizes lacquer finishes. Well, it does a good job of cleaning anyway. I may have used the wrong chemical or the...
  10. Fox Terrier Necklace

    ERGH! Fail. Between chronic pain and the flu I missed the wooden wearables by mere hours! Oh well. Hope you all enjoy the necklace anyhow! I made this for my aunt for Christmas this year. I wear my own schnauzer one daily. It's just my style, simple, easy, and goes with everything, dressed up...

  15. Laser cut replica dresser

    I completed this project in December 2013, long before I got into "Toys and Joys" model making and my introduction to LumberJocks. I have been requested for a sample of my laser builds and though this article is not a "how to do" procedure, I managed to salvage some old photos to put together...
  16. Little Bess Ring Box

    This box was a personal challenge. I was enjoying reading about and seeing what other LJ's had made out of scrap. After the Kaleidascope box I had a scrap of Ebony 38×36x27mm in size which I kept rolling around in my fingers. That was it. Along with a random selection of oddments in my scrap box...
