  1. Ohio University Bobcat Sign

    I upgraded from a Dremel router setup to a Bosch Colt Palm Router. Had to use the Dremel for some of the fine detail work. Love my first try with the Bosch Colt. GREAT TOOL! Thanks to JimmyHack for sharing his design. He did this as well with scroll saw. I envy his skills. Here is the...
  2. Patriotic Ohio

    We live in Ohio. I asked my daughter if she wanted to make a project together for her bedroom. She said she wanted something Ohio, like with an American flag on it. So I start thinking and come up with the following design. I go to the big orange store and get a 1×6 poplar board. I use Mattias...
  3. Buckeye Boards - Ohio Cutting Boards - Just in Time For Mother's Day

    My wife received a bamboo Ohio cutting board at Christmas, and the my grandma mentioned how much she liked it…seven times. Taking the hint, the wife wanted to buy her one, but I chose to do one better. Using ours as a pattern I made 3 for Mother's day - one for mom, grandma, and mother-in-law...
  4. Mahogany Frame with Inlay

    This frame was made as a gift and features a photograph of Havana Harbor in 1904. FYI - I was able to find the hi-res file for this image on the Library of Congress' online digital archive. If you're ever in search of interesting vintage photographs, the LOC and the National Archives have...
  5. Tap-Hole Maple Podium

    This is my first commissioned piece. It is a podium constructed from 3/4 tap-hole maple. For those that are not familiar with the wood, it is usually a by-product from the saw-mill. Maple logs that have tap-holes, from tapping for sap in the production of maple syrup, are usually chipped into...
  6. Custom Hunting Skinning Knife Damascus Steel Atypical Deer Antler Elephant Ivory Scrimshaw Artwork

    This Custom Made Antler Handled Damascus Steel Knife was a bit of a challenge for me. The Atypical Antler set had a right handed, mostly normal looking deer antler, while the left side had a mostly straight tall "spike" antler. The customer on this shot the deer in Ohio in 2010, and found me...
  7. My moms Funeral Collage, Framed in maple and walnut.

    Hey guys, So my mom passed away pretty unexpectedly this past Summer. For her funeral my sister made these awesome collages to display for everyone to see. After the funeral we wanted to keep them around so i decided to frame them up for my dad. This is the first one of two, I'll probably get...
  8. 3D Texas Star (Pecan)

    This star was made as a wedding present for a friend of mine. I've been wanting to make one of these for a long time, but didn't know where to start so I must give a big thanks to Aggie69 and his angle calculating spreadsheet. Once I knew what the pieces needed to look like, I didn't have much...
  9. Single Board Side Table

    I saw this table that Michael Pekovic presented in Fine Woodworking magazine and was immediately taken with it's simple elegance and beauty. I was unsure whether I had the capacity to create such a fine piece of furniture, but did have the desire. Once I began to assemble it and found that all...
  10. Ohio University Bobcat Logo from Scroll Saw

    Made this for my father-in-law for Xmas. This got me on his good side for another year. Approximately 24" x 28", 35 pieces made of yellowheart, wenge and stained maple mounted to white-washed oak plywood with stained oak frame. In order to cut the bobcat I took a few liberties with the logo...
  11. Hand Tools
    I am drowning in collected hand tools. So many it is difficult to find places for them and to determine which gets restored first. So I ask what do you do? How do you manage your rusty acquisitions? How do you determine who gets treated first? Where do you store your admitted patients waiting...
  12. Wood & Lumber
    A friend of mine is starting some wood working projects. She does not want to buy lumber from big box stores and wants to support a local source . She lives near Powell Ohio. I am hoping my fellow Lumberjocks can help point her to a local sawmill or lumber source. thanks … Oldreddog
  13. Wood & Lumber
    Been woodworking as a hobby for a couple of years. I know of Hardwood Lumber and More in Milford. Does anyone out there get their lumber from another source. I grew up in rural Indiana and there were sawmills all around, but there don't seem to be any in the Greater Cincinnati area. Any help...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    Looking for some insight on what hardwood prices should be from independent dealers (craigslisters or similar) or from other places like Kencraft, Keim, Bell Forest, etc. I have attached current pricing from Woodcraft in CLE and I know they are high, but just how high, 20% higher than what is...

    The 2009 Columbus, Ohio Woodworking Show Ok, because I didn't quite get to it quickly enough for some of you LJ's here in Mass., I wanted to let the Ohio contingent know that I'll be exhibiting at The Woodworking Shows next weekend (January 16th,17th and 18th). If you are in the area, please...

    Exposure in Thrillist.com A Web Of Connections You never know the connections that might be made from being in a show, exhibition, or getting published. It seems like it is never is a straight line in arriving to that point nor where you may go from there. It is more like a spider web of...

    Wounded Soldier back on the battlefield - The Ohio Tool Co. #4-1/4 Restoration I'll preface this by stating that I'm no journalist, but I figure I might as well start a blog so I can ramble on a bit about what I've learned from the great community of people here on LJ's. Ever since my Pops...
