  1. Ultra small double rabbet boxes in 1/8" purpleheart

    My associate, Jim (aka RAM MAN) made these boxes on his new precision 4" model saw. The corners and bottom are double rabbeted on 1/8" stock. The top slides and locks with no hardware, just good joinery. The finish is hand rubbed paste wax. The box is about 1" x 1" x 3-1/4". And about 3 cubic...
  2. Fretwork Chair

    I just got my new Excalibur 21" scroll saw today. There's also a blog post about it. This is a free Steve Good pattern. It seemed like something nice I could do out of some scrap plywood I had laying about the garage. I LOVE my new saw. It's a tremendous difference to go from a Harbor Freight...
  3. Mulberry Miniatures

    I picked up a small piece of Mulberry (2"x8") at my local woodworking shop. I roughed it to a cylinder and started to make a small weed pot/vase from it. I had enough left over to do a small box as well. The vase is 2.5" high. The box is 1.5" high. Finished with micro mesh and boiled linseed...
  4. With the poor economy I've been doing some smaller projects ...

    There are small jobs, and then there are really small jobs! I repaired a small table (you can see it in the last picture) and the client asked me to build a 1:12 replica. Sawing, routing, shaping, and clamping are all very different at 1:12 scale! I tried to keep the details as authentic as...
  5. You've heard of turning on a dime... How about turnings on a dime?

    My wife says I have too much time on my hands… wine glass and ice bucket are walnut, not sure about the wine bottle.
  6. Miniature jewelry box

    Miniature jewelry box, made just for fun, out of red cedar scraps.
  7. Miniature Shaker Hutch

    My mom had a lot of little dishes left from a child's playset she had when she was a kid. She wanted me to build a miniature hutch similar to a Shaker style to display the different things. There's only 2 pictures, but there's not really much to see. This hutch looks rough, which was...
  8. Miniature Butcher Block and Knife

    This is my first project post on Lumber Jocks. It's a miniature butcher's block that I made for a friend as a house-warming gift, and is fashioned after what you might see in a butcher's shop. It's made of solid oak and measures 10"x10"x8.5". The butcher's knife that goes along with it measures...
  9. Focus on the Workspace
    What are some of the shop storage/organizing solutions you've found most useful in your shop? As my wife and I close on our new house this week, I'm looking forward to moving into a new shop space (an actual garage/shop space, for those who know my back story, I'm excited for that). Anyway, I...
  10. Woodcarving
    This man worked (played) almost all of his Life on this project! Everything is ONLY MADE from wooden matches & wooden match boxes! ... I wonder how much it cost per BFT! :) It's called a Matchbook Fleet...

    Just wondering what LJ'ers thought of this drum sander. It seems like a pretty good deal, but is a bit small perhaps. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150521689044&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT#ht_671wt_1141
  12. Woodworking Skill Share
    I don't think there is an easy answer to this one - I certainly can't find one… I am taking a chair apart and hit a snag. The cross-brace on the bottom of the chair goes into the chair rail (or stile?) with a mortise and tenon joint. The joint was re-enforced with a finishing nail that only...

    Hi Guys, I have been thinking of trying a pipe these past few months. I was wondering if any of you have made your own? I did see a few jocks here have made them and I will contact them for advice. But do you have any suggestions on wood types and tips?

    My Narex chisel set arrived from Lee Valley This is how they came in the box, bouncing around inside,one of the plastic protectors had came off I think they should have been packed better. What do you think ?
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have an old oil pump that was used in the gas stations in the 50's & 60's. I now want to make and end table lamp out of it setting on a round table. The only problem is I have to drill a 2" hole in the center of the table to secure the pump. All of the plans for a nice round table,not...

    Last night, I picked up a Grizzly G1538 (16" industrial band saw, 1.5 hp) and let me tell you.. It is a definite step up from my 1/3 hp 10" Craftsman. My question is-I plan on probably resawing 75% of the time (probably maple, walnut, and oak) and need a good blade. I've been looking at the...
  17. Woodturning
    This may sound a bit odd, but I need to cobble together a lathe in order to turn a miniature telescope. For a toy badger named RogerBadgerBaxter, no less. Roger sits on the windowsill in my study, his head upturned as if looking at the moon and stars, and one day I looked at him and thought...

    Miniature Plane Thanks to the likes of WayneC, Thos. Angle and Bob #2, I've been accumulating hand tools. One of the latest additions to the shop is a beautiful wooden plane. Made from Indonesian ebony and brass, it has an adjustable high-speed steel (Rc62-64) blade. I bought this plane for...

    Walnut Wood - I just need to know... Does anyone else - when working with black walnut - think it smells delicious? I just want to eat it whenever I'm cutting it. I was recently cutting out a ball blank from a glue-up of walnut, maple, and wenge, the latter two of which don't really have a...

    Building the new saw table Well the gauntlet has been thrown and being the foolhardy individual I am I have accepted the challenge. After a friend of mine saw the Barbie Doll sized furniture (1/6 scale) I made for the Nothing New Except The Glue challenge they said, "I'll bet you can't do that...
