  1. My second turnings

    'Ello again! These are my second turnings, created using my second late 'design'. Check out my blog for details, or if you're feeling lazy here's a pic. Click to enlarge! The first two are quickies I did just to test out my new 'design' and have some fun. The third is my pride and joy so...
  2. My First Pens

    I made all of these pens in my shop class, and all of them except for the zebrawood one (which I made for my mom for mother's day) are for my sister. In the first picture, from right to left, the woods are zebrawood, maple, lacewood with a mysterious brown burl on top, and purpleheart. I decided...
  3. Impossible mallet

    Hello everyone. This is a long overdue project. Two years ago I decided to try and make Roy Underhill's Mystery/Impossible mallet. I cut and planed the parts to size but before I attempted the joinery operations and possibly waste good walnut and maple, I decided to first try my hand on a mockup...
  4. 1st Scroll Saw project in 42 years

    About a year and i/2 ago I saw a project that I thought my boss would like on LJ. (You can see the original idea at http://lumberjocks.com/projects/13337 ) I thought I'd make it for him for Christmas but time slipped away and he is now leaving our organization. Aside from him being a big Star...
  5. Mystery Wood Box with Poplar Splines

    This box was another step in the process of reducing my ever-growing pile of cutoffs. I have no idea what kind of wood the sides of the box are, feel free to comment if you do. It was the last piece of a large board that my dad was throwing out when cleaning his garage, and I've since milled it...
  6. Teepee - Kel Snake

    Teepee was a fun puzzle box to make using a found cigar box that has an extreme slope to the top. I also liked that the cigar box has its ornamental labels on all sides. The box itself was made from 5/16" thick mahogany and nice to work with. Seen on front are something I call 'lollipop"...
  7. Mistery Mallet by Geferson

    This is the first project that I show here in this house I hope you enjoy. Thanks. Geferson.
  8. Rotten Stump

    Driving home I see this big stump of some kind of mystery tree…. at least a 4 foot cube of half rotten perfection… so i picked up a smaller piece and brought it home. The pictures pretty much speak for themselves. Hopefully this weekend I will be able to go back and rescue the big chunk. The...
  9. Aromatic Cedar Twist Pull Box

    I recently got a hold of some scrap aromatic cedar T&G closet lining so I figured I would make a little box out of it. Smells great! My wife designed the twisty knob on top, also made of cedar. Finish is 2 coats of wipe on poly; the inside is left unfinished for that great cedar aroma...
  10. Lidded Box

    I got bored last weekend so I decided to break out the Jet lathe and turn a lidded box. I had some scraps hanging around so I laminated some purple heart to maple to goncalo alves. Not the best but every now and then you just need to start and finish a quick project to kickstart you into...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I bought this in York market last week but really don't have a clue as to what it's for. You know you're a Lumber jock when you buy…... It's around 9" long overall. Any ideas gentlejocks?
  12. Woodturning
    Hello, I'm finally ready for a lathe. I'll want to learn everything buy pen making. I REFUSE TO MAKE PENS and have made a pact with a buddy to never, EVER do that. ;) Bowls, spindles, whatever. I've read a lot of previous threads, but 99% of them seem to be about current models, sales and...
  13. Hand Tools
    Found this gizmo at a flea market the other day. Approx 3×2x1/2" in size and of metal construction. Front Back The front is clearly marked Millers Falls with more printing I could not make out. The two pins or posts do not rotate but do slide in and out and are secured by knurled set...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hadn't done any research when the opportunity to buy a used Grizzly 1/2" bore shaper (G510z) came up and I jumped at it. Heard shapers were the way to go with things like rails, stiles, raised panels. So now I see Grizzly doesn't even sell 1/2" bore cutters to use on raised panel doors. And...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I was introduced to them by Steve, who brought his bench to the recent swap meet at Anderson Plywood. It's a simple device, often on the outside end of a leg vise into which you can wedge the end of a variety of widths of board. The more you plane toward the board end (and this hook), the more...
  16. Hand Tools
    egg-beater crank style slotted "business end" cast iron crank & shaft, but cast brass handle/housing? **here's the big mystery- -3 sets of teeth on main gear -each set with a different amount of teeth (5, 6 & 7) 2 turning gears (top & bottom) alternate the direction of the shaft…back and...
  17. Hand Tools
    I refurbished a vintage chisel for my brother-in-law for Christmas. It's a Witte Hardware 1XL paring chisel 1.25" wide. When I polished it, I noticed a change in the metal about half-way down the blade. The line is on both sides of the blade. It looks like the blade is two pieces of metal welded...
  18. Hand Tools
    I bought a 2 5/8" Stanley No 8 (type 11; "V" logo) blade on eBay for my Stanley No 8 (also type 11). However, there is something unique about it that I have never seen before. Did you see it? What? What is that "H" on the blade? I know that there were some "H" planes sold in other...
  19. Wood & Lumber
    A tree died between the sidewalk and street and the township crew came out this morning to cut it down. They were nice enough to cut the trunk up into 3 pieces and leave them for me. The tree had a few leaves last year, but none this year. This pic was taken back in June (we also had to cut...
