  1. Horizontal Mortising Sled

    Finally got around to building a sliding table for making horizontal mortises this past Saturday. I came real close to pulling the trigger on the MLCS horizontal router table with mortising attachment but decided to give this a try first. I actually copied a lot about the MLCS design. I was...
  2. Together Forever

    I made this for this years woodcarving shows. This abstract heart within a heart is made of walnut with a bloodwood stand. It stands 14" tall x 9" wide and 2" deep. The hearts color are more brown than the pictures show. Not a camera kind of guy! Plenty of sanding on this piece! Open to any...
  3. A&C Computer Lap Tray

    A&C style lap tray / desk for my laptop. My laptop would get pretty hot and make my legs ache and I'm pretty sure it was hard on the computer too. I went with the A&C style to get some practice with m&t joinery, I also figured the slats would let the air circulate better. It seems to work well...
  4. another card holder

    This is similar to the business card holders I have posted before except that it is larger. The card it holds is about 3"x 5". The posts are attached with M&T joints. I made this for my desk at work. These cards are usually just piled on there and they get knocked around. Maybe this will clean...
  5. Contemporary Crib

    I rushed to finish this project before the birth of our first child - but it turns out that he decided to come 2 weeks late so I had plenty of time after all! For the design I wanted the crib to look robust yet clean with all straight, crisp lines. I tapered the legs down towards the bottom...
  6. Tricked out miter gauge for my table saw

    I decided to move to Germany about 6 months before I actually left. My partner is German and we just finished building a new house that was actually planned to have a room in the basement for my workshop. From numerous trips to Germany I knew that things like T-track and parts for jigs, etc...
  7. Mortiser Stand

    This is my new mortiser stand. It's pretty basic, just a standard cabinet with some reinforcement built in to support the weight of the mortiser. I made the cabinet so the machine table height is the same as my assembly table height. It has double locking casters on the bottom which makes it...
  8. Tool Box made from Reclaimed Barn wood

    My Son has started dismantaling delapitated barns and I made this tool box for him to use for his prybars and hammers etc. It is made from some small pieces of the fist barn that he took down. The tool box is red oak, I did not stain the wood just used Minwax Helmsman poly. 32in long, 8 1/2in...
  9. Barn Wood Bench

    This bench was built using old barnwood that makes up an interesting combination of redwood, fir, and oak. I used pegged mortise and tenon joints through. It turned into a fairly stout bench (the 4×4 legs added a lot of weight). For more photos and a more descriptive explanation of the build...
  10. Rustic Mantel

    I recently realized that I had forgotten to post this project. I think I did it last winter. It is made of pine, mitered at the corners to hide the end grain. Surfaced with a scrub plane first for texture, beat up with miscellaneous tools for distressing. Dyed with Transtint I had left over...
  11. Cherry headboard

    Cherry Headboard 54" x 54" Shellac sealer followed by tung oil The main challenges I faced with this headboard was to be sure the boards were flat during glue up. I glued up in three phases to make it easier to control. Also, I needed to allow for wood movement when fastening the boards to the...
  12. second dragon walking stick

    a doctor friend of mine gave me the idea for this one its a 2 piece walking stick the horns were the hardest part cause they would keep breaking
  13. Simple, functional dust collector stand / table.

    Just wanted to show off more of the shop organization than a real woodworking project per se… I needed to straighten out the line from my dust collector, to my separator, and as always, maximize floor space. I did both tonight using scrap lumber, and simple metal L brackets. Does this count as...
  14. Stoneware Rack

    This is a rack I made for my wife's pampered chef stoneware. It took me a few times to get the design to come out the way I wanted. When it was done I was pretty pleased. And more important my wife loved it. She was determined to have all her stoneware in one cabinet and easy to get at. Also...
  15. Modern/Rustic Oak Rocker

    This rocker is based on a set of plans I bought. It was supposed to be made of maple but I'm fond of oak and that's what I used, some of it up to 8/4's. The slats you see in the back and all the way to the knees are only glued on one end and the ends alternate to give a spring effect...
  16. Bubinga Conference Table

    Somehow I always manage to try to learn to swim by diving into the deep end. This table is a perfect example. One of my poker buddies is in the process of opening a new law firm nearby and wanted a showpiece conference table made from solid wood. As we play on the poker tables that I build, he...
  17. Sleigh Cradle

    The Journey Begins: The future grandchild, I have been informed, must have for all of five months a sleigh cradle to reside in. Since I have a long lead time of nine months the process begins with locating a sleigh cradle picture, and I found one. I start all my projects with the least...
  18. Turned Cherry Coffee Scoop

    I saw a couple of dare-devils turning a one-piece scoop online and decided to give it a whirl. WARNING: This is NOT for the faint-of-heart! The process requires some "innovative" turning methods that are not recommended for everyone. I'll let whomever is interested in learning this look up...
  19. Dana's Box

    Hello all and thanks for the warm welcome! I'm a beginning woodworker, and this is my first post. This box in my second attempt at box joints (uneven numbers just don't look right). The box has many flaws, and I learned alot. The wood is poplar, with a mahogany lid, and a walnut pull. It is...
  20. Mortiser Mod

    I picked up a harbor freight mortiser at an estate auction. Asked my wife for and x/y vice and thought I would be set. Well she got me a bloody huge vice that does not work even if the mortiser is elevated. SO I played around with it for a couple of nights and figured out if I placed the vice...
