  1. Turned Off Center Door Stop

    For whatever reason, I decided to create a door stop. Perhaps it's a result of a subconscious longing for spring, when we can prop our doors open without getting snow in the house, or suffering flies that come with summer. Compound this with that I, like many, often find myself searching for...
  2. Off Center Turned Door Stops

    A while back, I turned a door stop off center to see what I got. I wanted something different than the hundreds of examples on the Net and I really liked the result. For that offset turning, I used a 2×6 of mahogany (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/298570). The other day, I was cleaning up and...
  3. Flip top planer cabinet with offset pivot

    I built a flip top planer cabinet as part of a larger shop reorganization project. The criteria were that when stored, the top of the cabinet would be the same elevation as the rest of the tables so as to serve as infeed and outfeed for other tools; and that the planer itself would swing out...
  4. Older project pics .. small bowls and cups

    A variety of older projects from when I first started a few years ago
  5. Multi-axial, off-center lidded box.

    Just playing around after a recent video from Captain Eddie ( ). This is a variation of the one Cap turned … this one had four axis, offset by 45 degrees from top to bottom (his had straight sides, this one is twisted). Originally, this box was not supposed to have a base, but I got carried...
  6. Bent Joiner's and Carver's Mallets - Mallet Swap 2019

    For the 2019 mallet swap, I was able to turn out a coupel mallets. Sorry, won't happen again… The carver's mallet was all turned out of one round blank, and I tried to contour the handle so that it was comfortable and easy to register when used in two positions (choked up and towards the end)...
  7. First large green bowl blank - for twice-turned bowl

    A neighbor had a large poplar taken down (at least I think it's poplar). This chunk of trunk decided it wanted to be a bowl instead of firewood. This is the largest diameter that my lathe can handle. Electric chainsaw for the cornering. Faceplate mounted and reverse turned offset with my 1/2"...
  8. Mobile Planing Station

    This is from a plan that I got from PlansNow. I have a small shop so I needed a way to store the planer that I just bought. The planer weighs 92 lbs. and is just barely "portable". This mobile planing station has wheels so that I can move it around and stow the entire thing by leaning it against...
  9. Cherry Pig Cutting Board/Serving Board

    This is a project I cranked-out yesterday. We were going over to friends' house for dinner, and they were serving 24-hour roasted pork shoulder, so I thought this would be an appropriate gift to bring along. I free-handed the image onto the cherry, then cut it out on the bandsaw, sanded it...
  10. More Bentwood Rings

    It's been a little while since I last posted pictures of wooden rings, so here's an update. These are some of the more recent wood combinations I've been experimenting with. There are so many possibilities with these things! :) Hawaiian Koa (shimmer feature) ring with offset Ziricote inlay...
  11. Zathura

    Figured it was about time I started putting some of my stuff up. This is Santos Mahogony, textured and then tinted with black trans tints. My first offset turning. I was a little intimidated at first. Now I can't wait to try again with a new idea I had while making this one.
  12. Incra Offset Router Table

    Many thanks to the other LJ's that provided all the inspiration for this project. This project represented a lot of first in my woodworking career. Definately my first way too big, over the top router table cabinet. 1st time using Sketchup. I can say that it's a great tool. Definately helped...
  13. Standing offset divider bookcase

    Paid piece for a lady needing a storage bookcase for her vinyl collection. Offset and slightly inset dividers…just ignore those wooden crates on top, that's another post.
  14. Blogs
    Zoom-Zoom (and Keeping it dialed in) I see a lot of great Sketchup tutorials online (here and there), and while they do discuss different techniques, tools and what not - you really have to follow through from start to end, and go along a somewhat complex path to get the hang of things. one...
  15. Blogs
    Layout, Design, and Building an Heirloom! So I've been playing with the idea of building a "real" router table for a few years now. Like many of you, I have drooled over the marvelous work and attention to detail of previous LJ's offset router tables for a few years now. Many thanks to Blake...
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    LJs: I'm designing the space beneath the sink in my new wet bar cabinets and would like to offset the tailpiece to put the p-trap in the back. This would give me space for an extra drawer. I've seen some expensive offset drain tailpieces, but I wonder if anybody has tried piecing something...
  17. Jigs & Fixtures
    I purchased a Porter Cable 4212 Dovetail jig for making drawers. the half blind template produced a flawless joint. The thru dovetail template however produced a joint where the front of the drawer was misaligned with the side by roughly 3/64". This may be acceptable, but for a machinist...
