  1. Table Saw Sleds

    I wanted to make a box. After reading a few books on the subject, Doug Stowe had given a good description of how to build a table saw sled for accuracy, safety, and whatnot. So I built these. A large sled (MDF/rock maple) with a toggle clamp for a holddown was the major one, and also one to...
  2. Cherry and Purpleheart Picture Frame

    My first big picture frame. I used cherry with purpleheart inlays (roughly 1/4" deep). I also decided to insert a cherry spline that ran parallel to the miter joints to make them stronger (see the third picture). The first picture shows the completed frame. I designed the frame for a facsimile...
  3. Red Cedar Bowl

    This is a bowl I made a few months ago. Started with bowls, and moved on to pens. I'll be posting some of them soon.
  4. TV Stand

    My freind, Sheldon, bought a new TV for the bedroom and wanted a simple stand so he could put the DVD player and cable box under it. It was made with poplar. I used a miter joint at the edges to hide the end grain. A little bit of stain and some polyurethane finish and there you have it...
  5. network player

    The first project using newly made shooting boards I posted. All boards are fine tuned using shooting boards and at the same time I adjusted the shooting boards itself. A quite satisfactory result I could get BLO and Poly Urethane mixture is used as the finishing
  6. Six-sided Box

    For quite sometime, I've been intrigued by miter cuts other than 90 degrees. The question that lingered in my mind was how to determine the miter angle. One website gave a formula which goes like: divide 360 degrees by the number of sides you plan to make. Then divide that angle by two. For six...
  7. Reel storage as the result

    As for the reel storage, I decided to make with a sort of "Nature " flagrance . You may notice that there are several flaws of the design and execution. During the process, I made some very severe mistakes. To cover up these, I changed the original design and finally came up with this. Curly...
  8. Jewelry Box #1

    This my first ever attempt at making anything remotely decent to give to someone. Created and finished for Valentines Day 2012 Materials: (1/4") Curly Honduras Mahogany (Lid, Body) (3/4") African Mahogany (Bottom) Clasp and Hinges off a cheap store box Premium Black Velvet The entire box was...
  9. 45 degree shooting board

    I'm happy with how it came out and I can now cut 45 degrees with at least good enough accuracy for my wood working level:) But, somehow, when I glued two 45 degree pieces together as a test (wood glue & crazy glue without clamp), it came to be about 91 degrees… If I properly clamp the joint...
  10. Trainee's Shadowbox

    This shadowbox was built on request for one of the Airman who arrived at the Air Force base the same time I hired on as a DoD civilian. I have spent a lot of time over the past four years training and mentoring this young man and was honored when he asked me to build him a shadowbox for his...
  11. 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...
  12. Horse and Carriage

    This Horse and Carriage was made at the request of my granddaughter and scaled to fit her Barbie Dolls . They are made of 1/4" birch plywood and pine and spray painted. I later added some gold decorations applied with a paint pen.
  13. Miter key / spline jig (Black MDF)

    Here are my attemt on the miter key jig. It runs extremely smooth on my Festool sled, just attaced to the fence with two clamps, and off we go. The black MDF are just because it was some I had left, and even it might color a little, it was free, so… I made also a movable fence or clamp on holder...
  14. Custom Frame for Master Bath Mirror

    This project began as a relatively simple exercise in choosing the wood, cutting precise miters, finding a way to do the joinery, finishing the project, and finally installing (hanging) the finished result. I wanted to have the same color, grain, and character of wood for the project. The...
  15. Arc Leg Box

    Yet another box. This one was built as a proof of concept to test out my idea on cutting the large cove on the lid. It is made of some scrap Mahogany and Poplar. The first thing I did was cut the legs to rough size and then using a jig to hold them in place I used the table saw to cut the...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am making a small jewelry box out of cocobola. Here is the rub: The sides are angled 30 degrees. That of course is making glue up difficult. I have not started to glue yet, but my dry runs show me it is going to be difficult to get the proper "pressure" in the right places, for the right...

If so, now may be the perfect time to give it a try! Thanks to...
  18. Joinery
    I have a friend that wants me to make her a 8 ft dining room table. Base in Walnut, top in ash with a walnut inlay. I have some 6/4 dry ash (6 to 7%) and walnut. I had planned on glueing the interior ash to 27 inches wide, probably 5 boards. Then use a 6/4 inch walnut board and glue this to...

  20. Joinery
    Can I tap the expertise of the group? I'm making a decorative box about 11 inches deep and want to reinforce it with splines and also add a bit of a decorative touch to the corners. I never know how many splines to use per joint. In smaller boxes, say 3-4 inches deep, I use two. But for a...
