  1. This table really sucks...downdraft sucking that is!

    Wanting to build a downdraft/outfeed table for a while now since I do a lot of sanding/shaping/carving with my intarsia, I searched LJ and the internet for ideas. I was happy with a style that I found through Clint Wenthur, the link to his project blog is here...
  2. Wooden Vase Sanding Fixture

    Using Pine wood for the prototypes I glued an extra pine board to one of the vase blanks. After band sawing this piece from the vase it was then used for the nest of the sanding fixture. This nest was reduced in size by about 1/8 inch on the sides and top to allow some relief for the sanding...
  3. Lathe Motor Conversion to Variable Speed DC.

    I recemtly turned a bunch of bowls on my lathe and I was having a lot of vibration problems. My lathe has only 5 speeds. To change speeds, I have to turn the lathe off, set my tool down, wait for it to stop spinning, open up the door, change belt, close door… (In other words it takes a while.)...
  4. PM66 restore

    I bought a Powermatic 66 at an online auction web site. I paid $350 plus $135 processing. After rental of a truck I drove 158 miles to York PA to pick up the saw. Upon my arrival back, I set up the mobile base, slid the saw onto the lift and moved it into the shop. My friend, Camron & I pulled...
  5. This years high volume lower profit boards

    These are my less expensive boards for my first show in August. I usually make about 35 - 40 total in 7 different styles for each show and generally sell all but a handful for $25 - $40 each. Where I make my money is they are made entirely from scraps and shorts. I'll run the both sides through...
  6. carbide insert roughing tool

    Here's a few pictures of a roughing tool I made for myself using a carbide insert. It'll really hog off the wood!
  7. White pine slab bench

    I'm still practicing with wedges. I find it pleasing to the eye, simple and very strong. No glue or screws. The legs are 1 1/2" sq. and shaped a 1" round tenon to fit the bore thru the slab. I used a 1" box wrench as a die. I then shaped the shoulder to fit with the curve of the slab. Overall...
  8. Finished Workbench

    Just finished up my workbench Finally finished my workbench this weekend. Wagon Vise (Veritas Shoulder Vise Screw) on the right end, Wilton on the left, and a 7"x8"x1/2" A36 Steel Anvil Plate inset. The front working section is 12" deep 6' long. The back is 10"x6' Undercarriage is Red Cedar...
  9. The Noah Owl Toy Box

    I just finished a new toy box called the Noah Owl Box. Being the Mom-of-the-Year that I am, I quickly realized that my poor first born has gotten left out of the naming of furniture process since I ditched making the Noah Building Blocks table about a year ago. So he's back and very happy to...
  10. Butterfly box

    Hi All This was a specially made small batch of five boxes, commissioned by the Designyard in Dublin, for one of their clients. They liked our Oak Furnace trinket boxes that are on display at the gallery, and wanted to incorporate a butterfly theme, so what could be more fitting for butterfly...
  11. Decoration for V-Bert

    When we've purchased our 32' sailboat named "Lindisfarne" several years ago, it needed some work, both interior and exterior. A front sleeping compartment(known as V-Bert on sailing vessels) needed to be re-finished. Afterwards I noticed some emptiness around mirror on the back wall and carved...
  12. Band saw upgrade...

    This is the second upgrade on this old 197? Rockwell Band saw. The first was to lower it to my new stature. When I was trying to make through M&T for the screen door, I found that my 5 inch cedar practice piece bogged it down. I had this 2hp 110/220v motor from an old compressor I got at a yard...
  13. 2011 Wedding Plate

    This is a challenging pattern. The results are worth it but it does take some skill and patience.
  14. Hidden/Secret Compartment in Wall Cabinet

    This cabinet is located in my 5'x5' bathroom. The cabinet is pretty boring on the outside. It's the surprise on the inside that most find cool. Inserting a shelf pin into the topmost rear hole runs a motor that raises a sliding panel. Insert the shelf pin into the next lowest pin position...
  15. Another Mitre Sled, Thanks LJ's and WWMM!

    Well, as Steve Marin noted, when people know you start woodworking, they seem to all need a picture frame. I got just that request, and based on the quality of the work I was framing, I didn't think that my CMS would do a good enough job, so here, finally, is my first project to be displayed on...
  16. Twisted juniper display table pedestal for 3 head taxidermy mount

    This particular piece of juniper is actually a root that we had dug up. We used burled pine for the "tables". It took 65 hours to sandblast, sand and oil….. www.rmtwist.com
  17. Red Oak and slate craftsman style coffee table

    Using red oak, I made a frame for three pieces of slate, and then built the legs and skirt. I stained with a waterbased cherry stain/dye. I liberally used the stain, and rubbed it into the wood. It started to come alive. I finished it with a poly. The slate is uneven, but still works great...
  18. More Screwdrivers

    More Screwdrivers. Unable to repair the broken mahogany screwdriver I made last Dec., I was able to salvage all the metal components and refabricate a new screwdriver (three actually). One out of maple (from the neighbors Civil-war era Maple), and two out of cherry, (right off the firewood...
  19. Recipe Boxes

    These are two recipe boxes I made for the granddaughters who are getting into cooking. They are made from 7/16" maple plywood and all six pieces are lock mitered together and then the box is cut on the band saw. They are finished with Boiled Linseed Oil. Cheers, Jim
