  1. WORLD'S SMALLEST END GRAIN CUTTING BOARD!

    You might remember when I exploded my first attempt at making a cutting board. I ran it through the planer once, no problem, second time BOOM! It was a poor clue up and I learned from the lesson. Tonight I was doing some cleaning of my shop and found the pieces in a trash bin. I hate to throw...
  2. Wormy MAPLE and CHERRY end grain cutting board

    This is a basic cutting board design I made. Filled in worm holes with super glue. Quick fun projects are important too!
  3. Stupid Me

    A while back I was placing an order from Penn State. I noticed that the bottle stopper chuck was on sale 30% off, so I figured what the heck. So I used the drill bit that came with it and prepared a blank, only to discover that the bit size was a wee bit too large. I found a slightly smaller...
  4. Picture frame - a mistake becomes a feature

    And the mistake was in cutting the wenge too short so that the glass did not fit in the fram. Fixed it by adding some maple strips between the mitre joint and it ended up looking quite good; IMHO of course. The best thing about the frame is the two little munchkins in it.
  5. a convex chess board

    Following in the footsteps of deltxguy, here is a new project of mine that did not work very well (hey! its meant for playing with convex chess pieces! exactly as I designed it! yeah, right). Anyway, not falling into the trap of making a glued mitred frame, I fell into another trap. Don't know...
  6. Slowdown Stool: A Poplar Pallet Adventure

    I checked out a local dump and found some great huge pallets of what I later discovered to be poplar. They were a gray color when I found them. They belonged to a stage manufacturing company, and they let me take some. Perhaps I will visit again. They sat for a while in the garage and...
  7. Walnut Vase

    Here is one of my latest pieces. Created from Black Walnut and poplar, this vase is entirely handmade "not turned", made with the ringmaster and scroll saw. Overall it measures 8 1/2'' high x 6 1/2" in diameter, finished in a satin sheen. Thanks for looking! Jeff.
  8. Fixed it :-)

    Thanks to everyone that commented or gave me advice on fixing or trashing this box. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/89595 I tried several things, and ended up doing several of the fixes. I mixed glue and sawdust, I used some walnut colored putty, and I used a sharpie to blend it in. Here are...
  9. Coloring Pyrography Opps...

    A few days ago I posted a forum topic, http://lumberjocks.com/topics/1657, on Coloring Pyrography and Thos. Angle gave me a good suggestion. However, given the scale at which I am working I thought I wanted more control over the point. So, dummy me decides to go with a water based marker...
  10. Chess Table

    I've always wanted to build a chess table and the pandemic has allowed me the time to finally get it done. The main makeup of the table is maple/mahogany for the game board and oak for the table. I had originally planned on maple/walnut for the game board, but I came across a mahogany board at...
  11. Quarantine Chess Set

    Chess set made of Cherry and Walnut. This is the second chess set I've made, and although this piece is a little bit fancier in the joinery, bottom, and magnetic closures, basically all the things a non woodworker wouldn't give a second thought about, or even care to look at, there is one...
  12. FLAG CASE

    Flag case, sides made of 15mm oak, 3mm plywood back, overal dimensions 40×40cm, finish wood oil, base 40mm thick, 3mm glass. Splines were made of wenge.
  13. Heavenwood box

    I love this box. I might hold it in my recliner and rub on it all night long. I guess there are lots of things as fine as the feel of well worked wood, but not too many. I know what you're thinking. Ya got me there. I made this from some pieces laying around the shop. Not sure where I got...
  14. Another Ulu

    I ended up with a bit of extra birds eye maple after making a full kitchen knife set for my parents, so to complete their set, I decided to use the scrap to make my mom a Mother's Day present - an ulu, which is a traditional Inuit skinning knife. I bought a couple of these blade blanks a while...
  15. The Box

    What could be so hard about a box? I'll tell what, getting the top and bottom to match up. I'm pretty sure I got something out of sequence, but I made the four sides and then sliced it to make a top and a bottom part. I used a lock miter bit to make the corners on the box and once it was set...
  16. Banging out Boxes!

    I'm having a good time, trying all sorts of boxes lately. I've completed a few more and thought I'd post. I don't really crank them out that fast. I can make most of a box in a day, complete the fabrication the next day, and then three days or so to finish. I have tried hinged lids, lift off...
  17. The "Oops" Box

    This is not a fancy box, but it does have quite a story. It all started with a piece of plywood that I was given. I noticed that it was about double the size of the cardboard box that my jig saw came in, so if I cut it in half it would make a good base and lid for a new wooden box for that...
  18. Site Help and Suggestions
    Maybe its just me being about blind but I haven't noticed this. I would like to see a "like" tab and a "reply" tab under each individual comment (sorta the way Facebook is set up. Each post being numbered helps some but it seems to me that this would be an easier way for members to reply on...
  19. Hand Tools
    So, let's say, hypothetically of course (who am I kidding, I messed up), that I was grinding a fresh bevel onto a Narex 1/2" mortising chisel, and I happened to lose focus and press down too hard for too long without dipping in water, overheated the cutting edge and ruined the temper of the...
  20. Woodworking Skill Share
    Sorry if this is the wrong area to post this, but I'm a bit stuck in the last stage of my current project. I just completed building a picture frame to fit a painting, but now I'm not sure how to actually mount the painting in the thing. It just has a single rabbet, almost the exact depth of...
