  1. Japanese Toolbox w/Built in Tool Wall

    If you prefer not to read, the video is here View on YouTube This project is one that I've done before, mostly I've made these for friends/other woodworkers who were either just starting out or wanting to get into Japanese woodworking. This one will be used to store my growing collection of...
  2. Sharpening Stones Box

    Sharpening Stones Box, it was made out of wood scraps mostly mahogany and plywood, basically, I cuted a big piece of mahogany in two and add a sheet of plywood on the bottom and a piece of pine on the top. I left I litle grove when I glued the pine so that I can sit a stone on top, in case I...
  3. Open Top Bookshelf

    Been a while since my last project! About 4 years ago, I moved across the country into a tiny apartment and had to downsize my whole shop to just what would fit in a single, small tool box in the closet. A few years later, we're back into a house with room for a shop and I'm starting to build up...
  4. Restoration - "Rockaway" Rocking Chair

    A few weeks back, some friends told me about a treasured rocking chair that someone had tipped a bit too far back. One of the rockers split right where the rear post connects. This is, of course, the point of most when rocking backwards, so I worried it would be a difficult repair. It was...
  5. Cutting Board with Inlayed Aluminium Nails

    I made this cutting board as a wedding present with the couples initials inlayed into the wood with aluminium nails. I got the idea from Peter Sandback in this video http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/48470/peter-sandback-nails-his-designs . The Board is made from birch and walnut scraps and...
  6. Odds and Ends Cubbies

    Nothing ground-breaking here, but I needed to organize! I took the opportunity to use some scrap shop birch and practice dado-ing. Some came out nice and tight, but others were a little gappy. The bins came from Grainger at $1.42 apiece. A STEAL!
  7. Slowdown Stool: A Poplar Pallet Adventure

    I checked out a local dump and found some great huge pallets of what I later discovered to be poplar. They were a gray color when I found them. They belonged to a stage manufacturing company, and they let me take some. Perhaps I will visit again. They sat for a while in the garage and...
  8. Storage box for Milwaukee M18 ROS

    Another "Schektainer" as Lazy Nathan calls them. This one for my Milwaukee M18 Random Orbital Sander, bought for handling some of the large surfaces on my Laundry Hamper (which is stalled until I no longer have to worry about my ten pound lifting restriction). Pine sides (half inch), poplar...
  9. Plane-making tools box

    I built a box to hold my plane-making tools (floats, brace and bits, and circle templates). It holds all the tools securely, including the box of my gimlet drill bits and nothing rattles around. It's built of 3/4 pine which my sweetie salvaged from some shelves she no longer needed, plus some...
  10. BEER CASES!

    OK so this is by no means 'fine' woodworking, but it was a quick, fun little project to help out a friend who brews beer. he wanted to make some wooden cases to store bottles and bottled beer. 24 per case, 10 cases. So we grabbed some plywood crate tops from work. These crates come from China...
  11. Another Nail Balancing Puzzle

    I needed some Christmas presents, so I check on LJ for ideas and found some of you guys with great looking nail balancing puzzles (thanks you guys!!!). My daughter brought home a long time ago, an old Windsor chair not worth the repair it would take to get it back to a dining table. I could not...
  12. Step stool

    I made this step tool In my high school woods class. It is made out of white oak and is finished with antique cherry formbys tung oil. I used a special kind of router for the top piece of the wood, and I used pocket hole joints to join them. I made this project in the fall semester of my...
  13. Build a giant shoe box! (VIDEO!)

    I documented the video on my YouTube Channel. I encourage you to check it out! This week I built a giant shoe box! It is a copy of an Air Jordan shoe box, complete with product tag! This build is for a client who collects Air Jordan shoes. He wanted a dedicated place to store them and show...
  14. Shaker Style Step Stool

    This stepstool was requested by a co-worker who wanted to be able to reach the top shelves in our supply cabinets. It took me a while, but this was the result. I altered the design in Ejner Handberg's book because I didn't have a single board to make the sides from, but was edge joining three...
  15. Bird house

    So I decided to remake the bird house that was demolished over the winter and Kay in a heap on the grass… This was made in a couple of hours with one 8' length of 1×6… It tuned out awesome and I had to add the mounting piece of wood and added some perched on it… I hope you like it….
  16. Planter Box - Reclaimed Oregon / Douglas Fir

    Here is a cheap and cheerful planter box I put together in a few hours. Simple 20mm horizontal frames top and bottom then 12mm reclaimed Oregon planks nailed to the frames all round. I put a little detail into each joint with the table saw to break up the sides, my friend Ted thought it would...
  17. Board Chest - Pine and Iron

    This is a blanket chest I just built on commission. It started out as three immaculately clear pine boards, a pile of wrought/cut nails, and some hardware from Horton Brasses. There are no knots in the chest - it is entirely clear. Amazing material. I decided early on that it would be...
  18. wheelbarrow

    Got tired of dragging yard waste, mulch etc around on an old tarp, and too cheap to buy a wheelbarrow, so the pile of pine 1×4s in the basement got turned into this. The wheel was cut from a bit of scrap plywood. Maybe if the thing holds up I'll make a wheel out of pine boards just to keep with...
  19. Slant Sided Cherry Tray Bronze Nails

    I used a 10 degree slant and some nice marine bronze nails. The bottom has the same angle as the rest and stays put with or without nails. I nailed one side and put one nail in the center of the other side to allow for expansion and contraction. Its seems like a simple project but the...
  20. Double Eagle Wall Clock

    I try and collect pieces of wood that I feel will make a great piece to work with. After looking over this on e I decided to wood burn eagles on it. While burning I decided to make a clock out if it. It is not completly finished yet and here os the piece while working on it. I haven't done...
