  1. Kreg Jig Portable Workstation

    The Kreg Jig is mounted to a small board which nests in the workstation. This workstation gives support to your wood as you work. It contains five storage compartments behind three sliding doors. These compartment store screws, bits, drills, clamps, and the jig itself. It can also house the Kreg...
  2. Jewelry Boxes

    1. My first adult project, based on plans in woodsmith 47. Walnut. 2., 3., 4. Three others of the same design, where the top marquetry was replaced by the girls names scrolled in matching or contrasting woods. 2 is Maple, 3 is Cherry, 4 is bloodwood and Ebony (shown). 5. A different design...
  3. Cell phone tripod mount

    With the lock down in South Africa to prevent the spread of the Covid19 Corona virus we had to think about innovating ways to carry on with Sunday services without gathering people together in a church building. Given that the resources of a small congregation is limited with no budget to buy...
  4. Simple Reclaimed Beam Mantle

    This is one of the h4s (hand-hewn four sides) softwood beams from our barn wood lot. The customer picked it out and gave us the dimensions. They wanted it natural (unfinished). It's held up by a red oak french cleat. The cleat sits in a routed out pocket in the back of the beam and is 3/4"...
  5. My Little Girl's Dresser

    This is a dresser that I just finished building for my little girl coming in November. The frame is poplar and all of the facing along with the top is maple. I decided to leave the top live. Really happy with the way that it turned out. Enjoy!
  6. Pantry Drawers

    These are the kind of projects that aren't glamorous, but do get you brownie points with your significant other. We had a closet pantry with shelves that made it impossible to find things towards the back. You know, like that can of condensed milk that has made 3 moves with you and outdated 6...
  7. "Nang Nakalabit" (pregnant torso) Amboyna burl

    Dimension: Ht 43" W 16" D 8" I did this sculpture in 2007 out of narra ( Amboyna) burl. I had the burl lying around in my studio for around 4 years before the image of the pregnant lady revealed itself to me out of the thin undulating crusts of burl. It was quite a challenge as a sculptural...
  8. Asian Inspired Box

    Hello fellow LJ's, Here is a rather quick project I decided to do after finding out that a former boss was leaving for our company. I was under the gun to finish this by Thursday of last week, but there really just wasn't enough time in the day during the week to get it done, so I spent...
  9. New Foreman On The Job

    I haven't posted in a while and this may very well be "overkill" but I wanted a semi-permanent spot for my Kreg Foreman pocket hole machine. There are also times when I wanted more bench surface. This seemed to fit both purposes. The center of the bench will accommodate the Foreman and it can be...
  10. "Fairy Log" Xmas present fun with epoxy and old rotted oak stump

    Video here! I got a fresh jug of epoxy! This is basically me playing with it and some pearl pigments usually used for automotive paints. Quite a while ago I grabbed this oak log from the family farm. It has been sitting out for years after it was cut up from some fallen limbs for firewood. I...
  11. Jointing issues due to blade height misalignment

    I always seem to struggle with scalloping or gouging on my jointer, especially after new/newly sharpened blades. I came across an article in where the author showed off a way to create wooden alignment jigs. After making mkne, I just wasnt having much luck due to the lifting that occurs when...

    Hi, I'm at the point where I am about to mount my router to the router table top. The top is 1 3/8" solid phenolic. I am currently favoring mounting the router directly to the top. this means routing a circle recess on the underside of the top to house the router and keep it ~3/8" from the top...
  13. Wood & Lumber
    So what I think I'm going to do is buy a butcher block maple top that is 120×30" and 1-3/4" thick. I'm also going to buy a set of 4 Hafele table E-Legs (28" height) to attach to each corner of the top. I just have three questions. 1. It says the butcher block top is 174 lbs and the legs I'm...

    I made this Wrist watch rack and i want to mount it flush against the wall without showing tape/nails…etc. It is only 3/4 inch wide. Thanks for the help!!!
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am helping a friend build a shadow box for his captain's retirement. He will be using the box to display two flags and a (replica) Civil War naval pistol. We are trying to figure out an attractive way to hold the gun in place. This box may be placed flat on a table or upright, so it will need...
  16. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    A client of mine wanted me to build a barn door for them so they could install a sliding barn door to cover the closet in their bedroom. They had previously said that the condos they live in had are the products of some shady construction habits and that they did not think there were many studs...

    Being fairly new to turning, I sometimes discover that my set-up strategies fail me. I have a few projects put aside because of errors, because I lacked the proper chuck to mount them. Though my 3-jaw scroll chuck is quite versatile, it cannot be used in every woodturning situation. So I...
  18. Joinery
    I'm getting ready to start my first journey into making doors. I haven't settled on the design of the door as of yet, leaning more towards a 3 panel square, no arch. Or whatever my wife decides. The rails and styles will be made from 2×6 pine. The styles will be cut down to 5" wide and the...
  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Please forgive the discursive ramble. I tend to think better "out loud". So, I have a monster of a dining room table that has been in the family for generations. It's a solid wood table with a beautiful persimmon wood veneer. When it's polished up and not covered in all the random crap that...
  20. Jigs & Fixtures
    I am building a vanity and have already installed the face frame. I will be using full extension side mount slides for the drawers. I am using the Rockler universal drawer mounting jig. When I seat the jig against the face frame I noticed the slides are not level. Is it more important to level...
