  1. Rolling Toy

    I made this rolling toy using the plan from issue 66 of Woodworker's Journal (Nov/Dec 87). The roller disks were made by laminating 1/2" thick oak and 7/16" thick spalted sycamore. Finished with several coats of Behlen gloss lacquer. I actually made three of these, so a couple of friend's...
  2. My Shoe Shelf

    My wife wanted a shoe shelf to go next to our entryway door into the house from the garage. I thought about just putting a quick square shelf in there, but I thought I'd try something a little more exciting. Who says a shoe shelf can't be exciting? I copied this design directly from another LJ...
  3. Ornamental Bracket

    Brackets like these are very common in the New Orleans area. Typically a house would have 3-5 of them on the front facade. My team made eight of these for two separate houses. Each bracket has upwards of 30 or 40 separate pieces that we hand cut. The finial (the point on the end) for this...

    A question I get hit with a lot is how to keep a live edge slab from warping, or how to stop one after it has started warping. I decided to make a video explaining the wood science behind it and what you have to do. Heres the chart that tells you what the moisture content of your wood will be...

    I've decided to buy a moisture meter. I've never used/owned one. Which brand/model do you folks recommend? Do any of them come in combination with a metal detector?

    Selecting and drying Douglas Fir Though I am an aspiring woodworker, I seriously doubt the thrill of cutting into fresh boards will ever get old. Ripping through clear, tight-grained Douglas Fir is a thrill! Chris Schwarz's free ebook, The Anarchist's Workbench, couldn't have come at a better...

My first thought was to take a piece of wood measure the moisture content with the meter then weigh it (I have a pretty good balance here so I think I can get a good measure...

    Hello - I'm new here. I've been a professional restoration contractor for many years and have come across instances of plywood that is dried for extended periods of time through conventional means using dehumidification and air movement yet still tests "wet". I've come to know that slow leaks...
