  1. Hand Held Mirrors Using My 3D Pantograph

    For years my wife has used a little mirror from her compact to see the back of her head while doing her hair. While pondering what to make for her this Christmas I decided she needed a mirror upgrade. I made two, one for her, and one for the wife of my glass guy who made me a dozen mirrors in...
  2. Small Craft Items

    I've been busy for a few weeks making up some small craft items to launch a new venture on a website. Some are fun, some are too much work for what you get (the salt/pepper shakers) and some don't 'turn' out as you'd expect. I think some of my bottle stoppers are just too big! Have to make...

    My client needed a custom pharmacy to match her vanity. These shop photos show the result and also the interior structure. The curved door from the vanity, shows how close I was able to match the stain (shop recipe«). I designed it as a his & hers with 2 doors with reference to a single door...
  4. Mirrors for my Grand daughters

    I made these mirrors for my grand daughters as a Christmas Present. One is Walnut with a traditional handle and the other is Maple with a an attempt at an ergonomic handle. I find it interesting that it took me more time to make the forms than it did to do the two mirrors, with the exception...

  8. Pocket Mirrors

    Today I was experimenting with my new chatter tool, using it to decorate the backs of these little 2" mirrors. They're done on silver maple, and I have yet to wax and buff them up to a shine. This tool is Fun. Now that I know how it works, I'll start adding V-grooves to divide sections of...

  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    My Akeda BC24 arrived last week. I was just waiting for the accessory C-kit, with all the bits and guide pins, to get started. That finally came yesterday. I had the new 24 inch PC Omnijig, but was frustrated with the time to set-up and having to make multiple test cuts to get it dialed in. I...
  12. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I have completely redone my bathroom, including tearing down a wall and making a new one. My dilemma is this. I now want to hang quite heavy mirrors up. I have them up now with those plastic UGLY mirror holders to the studs. We hate this. We would like to find out if there is a product that we...
  13. Focus on the Workspace
    So I got a pile of oak 4×4s basically for free. I'm planning on building a workbench, they're currently acclimatizing to my shop. My issue is that they all have pith(the reason the are free). I don't want to be talked out of using them as I'll never be able to afford a solid hardwood bench...

  15. Finishing
    Hello all. I have installed two 30"x30" 1/4"-thick mirrors over my bathroom vanity. I'm going to frame them with rabbeted oak 1"x3"s and want to know if I need to seal the mirrors to their frames with caulk. The mirrors are already secured with mounts and Loctite mirror glue so the frames do...

    The Plan This project is something a little different. It is a bedroom wall unit, not a murphy wall bed, but one with piers, headboard, mirrors and a light bar. The kind where the bed just sits in front of it. The twist on this one is I will be adding a canopy to it. This will be a canopy...

    Simple Precision Arc Inlay Jig I had the need this afternoon for a way to cut a curved groove for a veneer inlay. It needed to be absolutely accurate and easy enough that even I couldn't screw it up. A half hour later I had this little jig. I thought someone else may find it useful. The first...

    I just won an auction sight unseen for 2 Table Saws and a Radial arm saw for a little under three bills. It looks like they are in rough but repairable shape, if not the scrap cost and motors should cover my money. I'll find out when I pick them up later this week. I'd like some opinions about...
