    Walnut and oak with a natural Danish oil finish. The tracks are a lot a work and the blade will keep your attention on high till it's done but a really nice project to build. Here's the build blog.

  3. Han Solo Blaster

    My girlfriend went as Han Solo for Halloween this year so naturally I had to make her the blaster. I started by finding a design I liked online and imported the image into SolidWorks. I scaled it to a size I thought appropriate and from there created all the separate parts and made the assembly...
  4. R-11 Refuel Truck

    This is my first attempt at a scale model. I was asked if I could make one for a retirement gift, so I went out and measured the real truck and scaled it down. It isn't perfect, but I am quite happy with how it turned out, being my first project like this.

  8. 12" TARDIS LED nightlight

    My son is a huge Dr. Who fan, so for his birthday I decided to build him a TARDIS model that would double as a nightlight. It is built out of birch plywood with scrap wood for the few other pieces (corners, roof, and the base). The LED light comes with a remote and can be set to many different...
  9. Model biplane

    Just a few hours in the workshop and endless smiles from my son as he played with his wooden model biplane that he helped me build. I used a bit of curtain rail, 8 dowels, 4 washers, a Lego man pilot, a few screws and some plywood - all of which I had in my workshop already. I researched a few...
  10. Mini Strat

    Built to mimic my full size stratocaster, this little guy took shape slowly. I started with a single piece of basswood that I carved to shape. The biggest challenge was stringing the mini strat. Eventually I settled on the strands from a small braided wire. These were wound and glued to the...
  11. P51 and Spitfire

    These are my *********************************** sander carving projects, they are out of pine and painted. My Aunt for some reason wanted me to make her a couple planes for her husband. They are toys so I hope she likes them or I guess he likes them anyway they are here in all their glory.
  12. Trebuchet "Mammoth"

    A home-school project encompassing understanding many things- history, engineering, physics, ballistics and yes, wood working. Also some fun. :) Our projectiles are typically marbles. They seem to combine the best combination of size and weight. We have broken the 100' distance a couple times...
  13. Prime Mover

    Except for my lay up through health problems you may have noticed the lack of projects from me well this is what I have been working on. This has been built for a woodworking magazine article. This took longer than expected due to the health problems, but I was not going to give in. I had a...
  14. Miniature walnut chair

    Got my camera back and took some pictures of the chair that so many of you helped me out with. I learned a lot in this exercise. Namely, that I hope to never have to cut tiny triangles with weird angles and bevels ever again! But I'm pretty happy with the way it finally turned out. It would be...

  17. Half track

    I have not posted much in the way of any woodworking/woodturning as I have been occupied with this little build. I do not keep a record of how long it takes but all I do know is that there are a load of bits that required making some on the small size. The finished model measures 19 1/2" long 7...
  18. kitchen island

    Here's my new kitchen island. Made from red oak if anyone couldn't tell. It is made of 4 separate cabinets and the base is one separate piece as well. I ran power into the base and on one side where I had room. I even made the countertop myself-first time for that. That was the easiest part but...
