  1. Woodsmith Router Mortising Jig

    I decided that I needed a mortise jig before I started my next piece of furniture. This should make mortising quick and clean. I took the plans from Woodsmith #147. First picture was before I installed the T-track. Photo 2 shows the 4 adjustment blocks that you use to size the mortises. Photo...

  3. Kitchen part 5

  5. Trestle Bench

    This trestle bench was a piece I built at a local college woodworking course. The course was four full days so I took the time off work and spent the entire week working on this bench.

  6. Leigh dovetail jig

    Well, I did it I bought a Leigh Dovetail Jig. You know it's one of those items that you think you just can't do without.

    Walnut live edge slab with quartersawn oak base and bowties. 40+ mortises and tenons. I was trying to glue up on my own and quickly desperation set in. Luckily a friend showed up at my shop and my look of horror required no words. He promptly grabbed a glue brush and we got it glued up...

  11. Maple Sink Base

    Here's a maple sink base I made based on homeowner sketches (yikes!). All material was rough cut to begin so all the milling too me quite a while. He wanted 4 inch thick legs so i ended up using 10/4 and gluiong up two pieces after carefully jointing them. My years in a handmade furinture...

These "tiles" are actually color prints of tiles that I found...
  16. new lathe and bench

    I picked this Jet 10" lathe out of the classifieds for $200. It's nearly new, the guy threw in a pen mandrel and around 10 pen and key chain kits. I built the bench from left over or salvaged materials, the only cost outlay on it was I had to buy some screws as I ran out half way through the...
