  1. Simple straight edge cutting sled jig

    If you don't have enough large handscrews, you may want to make a couple deep reach clamps (shown in the last pic) first as the building of this jig requires the use of four or more deep reach clamps.
  2. Miter/Mitre Box

    As a rookie on woodworking cuting straight isnt one of my strong points, so the miter/mitre box was created!!! I made it from spares, its just two bigger pieces one on each side that I glued and screwed to the bottom, later I aded a piece of acrylic to make it more stable (I ended up changing...
  3. Andy-Style Box #3

    I made this Andy-style box for my boss' retirement next month. It's made of figured ash from the local saw mill, recycled padauk (from an old table off craigslist) for the medallion/handle, and bloodwood for the splines (not sure why I used both padauk and bloodwood here, as they look nearly...
  4. Maple & Walnut Cross

    This is a Hard Maple and Walnut cross I made for a friend of my brother. He called me up one day and told me his friend had inquired if I could make a cross. So I sketched up an idea and emailed it to him (last pic) and then built it from there. This was my first time out with my Incra Miter...
  5. Keepsake Box in Curly Maple & Padauk

    This is a loose lid keepsake box, made for a family member. Overall dimensions: 12" x 7¾" x 4⅝"
  6. Here's my booth at a Local Show (Last Dec.)

    This was a few pieces that I had in a Local Show. There was around 70 Juried Vendors I think. Fun Show. The gentleman trying out the chair in the first pic, took it home with him. ~Bill~
  7. Simple lift lid keepsake box with flush mounted magnetic catches

    This is just a simple little lift lid keepsake box for a gift. This was made in the style popularized by Doug Stowe. Box bottom is white ash with walnut keys and top is solid walnut. Top is rabbited into the bottom and held in place with two rare earth magnets inlet into the top and bottom...
  8. Hey, Wayne, I did it!!!

    I've been saying I needed a miter plane to use on a chute board if I had a chute board. After all the palavering with Wayne and Douglas over the weekend, I decided it was time. I started looking for material Sunday night and this morning I went to the shop at 6 AM. I found a piece of Ash and a...
  9. Miter Key Sled

    I am working on a mitered box project that I thought would look great with some paduak miter keys. The problem is that I had never done these keys before, I have never made my own jig/sled before. I and had some scrap wood lying around. The sled portion of this is red oak. The part that slides...
  10. First Frame

    This is one of the first frames I built. For this particular one, I found a nice "ivy" motif trim piece at the local home improvement store. The second photo is a close-up of the actual trim piece already attached to the underlying poplar board. In order to increase the strength of the frame...
  11. Ebonized Walnut Frame with Half-lap miters

    About five years ago, my wife and I went on a trip to Savannah. Down by the river we had our portrait drawn by one of the street artists. That picture has sat on our dresser since then while we hemmed and hawwed about what frame to put it in. I finally decided to just make one. I knew that we...
  12. Chunky Slab-Lid Boxes

    These were the second pair of boxes I have made this year (at least before the snow fell). They are made of walnut with bird's eye maple slab lids. The keys are actually dovetail keys made with some leftover bird's-eye maple. Once again, my joinery is improving but getting better. Finished in...
  13. Simple scrap wood jig

    This is a simple jig that you can make out of scrap wood and I end up using it all the time. It is a table saw sled, it is just not as cumbersome as the really large sleds. It rides along your miter slot. You can crosscut small stock and flip it over for a 45 degree cut. Quick and simple.
  14. Lacewood and walnut large box

    This box has easily been two years in the making. Sorry for the poor quality image. the corners are mitered and splined with maple. Lacewood has been a nightmare but overall i am happy with it.
  15. Miter Saw / Radial Arm Station

    Workshop progress update Miter saw / radial arm station. Moving along to the chop / cut off station. Again keeping the shop furniture simple yet functional. Built with spruce 2×4s milled down 1 ¼" x 3". 1x pine ripped down to 2 ½" for the top frame ¾" true-floor for the sub top with ¼"...
  16. Baby Crosscut Sled

    So saw another crosscut sled post this morning and I was prompted to post mine as a result… This sled model includes a cabinet door hinge hold-down clamp, some holes in the fence for clamps, a piece of scrap oak blade guard, an aluminum track cannibalized from the stock miter gauge, removable...
  17. "Fall" & "Winter" Star Tables

    I finished this pair of small side tables a couple weeks ago. They're made of a number of 45-degree cut diamond shaped pieces that are all the same size (about 2 inches from point to point on the long side). The regularity of each piece and 45-degree angle naturally creates the 8-sided star...
  18. Lie Nielsen-Style Shooting Board

    I decided to make a shooting board for about 3 reasons: 1) It looks fun to use one, and I really enjoy making jigs 2) It may be an excuse to buy a Lie Nielsen no. 62 Low Angle Jack. I've been eyeing it for some time… 3) I suck at making picture frames. Like really suck. It's my hope that this...
  19. Drink Cap on Stairs

    The is a Trex deck with aluminum railings and a drink cap also using Trex decking. The material is spiced rum which is a multi tone board giving a more convincing appearance of wood. The size of this deck is 8'x22'. The highlight of this project that makes it worth sharing is the continuous...
  20. Bubinga & Maple Trivet Set

    A bubinga and maple trivet set made as a gift for a social media supporter. The trivets are 6" square in contained in a mitered caddy. My Festool Kapex and 4mm Dominoes made quick work of this project. It was all finished off with a 220 grit sand and some mineral oil...
