  1. Spoon for Guy Fieri

    This is one of those projects that was just fun to do from the start. The spoon was designed and crafted for Guy Fieri. I have always liked watching his shows and thought it would be cool to make him his own personalized wooden spoon. I was about to start on a spoon for a friend and thought…why...
  2. Chair

    Inspired by the Selig Z chair, I tried to simplify the joinery and update the aesthetic to be a little chunkier. It was really just a prototype to work out the dimensions. The next version will probably be a bit lower and angled back a bit more. I also want to do something more interesting with...
  3. Ambrosia Maple Bowl

    My first try at turning ambrosia maple, and it turned really nice. The Bowl is about 8" wide and a lil more than 2 inches tall. Finished at 800 grit and treated with hot beeswax and mineral oil, and buffed out to what you see here. I left a few beetle tunnels near the rim of the bowl, to...
  4. Oak Arched Door Vanity

    My first job using arched doors. I think I did alright but the stain turned out a little blotchy because it had been sitting around for so long and I didn't mix it up well enough. All in all though I thought it looked pretty cool. Facing/Doors are red oak Blum hidden hinges Dovetailed drawers...
  5. Shop Made horizontal slot mortising machine

    Inspired by Mattias Wandels multi slot mortising macine (www.woodgears.ca) I decided to give it a go. Had some parts laying around from an old edge banding machine that we disassembled at work a couple of years ago, and thought I could make use of this. I had a dual, crossing, linear ball...
  6. Slot mortiser

    This is my version of a slot mortise that I spent a lot of time designing with quick setup time in mind. no measuring required can be used completely with reference marks. I got inspiration for this mortise from the festool domino, and also matthias wandel's slot mortise. the left and right...
  7. Dedicated Mortiser Stand

    I mentioned earlier that I would post a couple pictures of the stand I made for my dedicated mortiser. Here are a few shots of the stand. It has a flat area (with a 5' fence and table not shown) where one can make traditional moritises into flat boards (say less than 3-4 inches in height)...
  8. Garden Bench

    This is yet another Mother's day gift for my mom I just finished a couple weeks ago. This is the biggest and most complex thing I've built so far, I think it surpassed the purple martin house in hours clocked in. (Still don't think I have any birds nesting in that darn house yet) I scanned the...
  9. Slot Mortiser (Using Templates)

    My children will leave our house next year and so I am currently preparing myself and my small shop for the time when a whole floor needs new furniture ;-) One of these preparations concern a slot mortiser based on Matthias Wandels plans : with the lever at the side you move the router back and...
  10. Shadow Box

    In my retirement I decided to join the fire department. What red blooded young man never wanted to be a fireman? Anyhow, our assistand chief recently transferred and I was asked to build a memento shadow box. Once again I've never done that so felt completely qualified to complete the task...
  11. Desk

    I made this desk for my son, Gunner, as he needed one for his apartment for collage. I used old cull boards from a sawmill, and plained them out, and turned out pretty good.
  12. Adirondack Chairs

    I built the patio set, my wife painted the group then added the parrot, palm tree, flamingo, and gecko cut from vinyl. Recovered the table and brightened the patio up for those hot summer days here.
  13. Espy

    This turned out to be 2 projects instead of one, the second having sort of evolved out of the first. I'm glad to be done with both of them. The original idea was to glue up a block of wooden matches to create a 'black and white' image. The burnt end of the match sticks would provide the black...
  14. sculpture bases

    Other things have damped my wood working endeavors. But, #3 son is very fond of cats so we got him these ceramic cat figures. However, the bases were narrow and they were tall enough to be easily tipped so I decided to make and put them on some bases. I know this is no big deal for most of you...
  15. Raised Planter Box

    I built this cedar mortise and tenon planter box to replace the rusty nail butt joint box that came with the house. Total cost was around ~$150 including $33 for a truck full of top soil. The 2×4s and 4×4's are from lowes and it took about 25 minutes to find 1/2 way acceptable sticks. The rest...
  16. Dovetail Tool Swap

    My small effort for the 2015 Dovetail Tool Swap. This was my first tool swap but it won't be my last. Thanks to all the Lumberjocks for encouragement. The mallet is all maple with black walnut splines. I made one for myself which was maple and black walnut but the walnut turned out to be too...
  17. Just another Pizza Peel

    My first pizza peel I made with scraps I had laying around. Made out of maple and walnut and finished with Watco butcher block finish. It's big enough to handle a 16" pizza with the overall dimensions about 16" x 32" with the handle being about 12" long. I haven't used it yet, which is why...
  18. Pic of Wood & Acrylic Pens

    Greetings: I'm new to pen-making. Here are some pens I have made. From left to right they are: 1. Round Top European Pen-Gold in Red Dyed Maple Burl 2. Round Top European Pen-Gold in Olivewood (I think) 3. XLarge Twist Pen in Birds eye Maple 4. Ornate XL Twist Pen-Gold/Chrome in...
  19. Red Heart Bowl

    8" X 6" This has gorgeous grain throughout! It is finished with a Wipe on satin Polly then buffed!
  20. Benchtop Mortiser Table Extensions

    I recently purchased a Powermatic PM701 Benchtop Deluxe Mortiser. It's a sweet machine that sure beats making mortises by hand…but, the metal table is short for furniture/cabinet pieces. I saw an idea in the May 2012 Wood Magazine that I thought was the answer. It's basically two elevated...
