  1. Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench

    Hello my friends !, after finishing this work, I present here my project of a Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench. It was built using only hand tools at all steps. The entire project was documented with specific details, in three entries here in my blog with explanations and pictures, and in turn these...
  2. Maloof Sculpted Table

    I finally got this thing started and complete. I was initially going to do it last fall but got busy getting some woodworking done for a gallery and then got busy on other projects. This is my first sculpted table and I am pleased with it. It was not too difficult and, as with all projects, I...
  3. Child Size Trestle Table & Bench

    Here's a project I just wrapped up for my good friend and business partners Daughter, Penelope & her new sister Violet. P has been the baby for some time now, so I wanted to do something special for her as I'm imagining this has to be quite the adjustment for her. In their basement there's a...
  4. Kreg Jig Mounting Board

    Upgrade from my old setup for my Kreg Jig. The last one (picture 6) was thrown together with scraps. This version is made from MDF as the base and pine for the extensions. Everything was given 2 coats of shellac and topped with a coat of paste wax. This combo has become my go to for shop fixture...
  5. Book cases.....with matching media center completed earlier

    A few months ago we completed a media center with an old vent cover placed in a door. After many delays we have finished the matching bookcases that complete the set and fit on either side of the cabinet. The pieces are made with reclaimed wood from old barns in the north Georgia area. The...
  6. Walnut & Maple Wedding Time Capsule Box

    Hey All, I took a bit of hiatus over the hot summer because it was just too humid and sweaty in my garage to be in there for too long. About a year ago, a few months after we got engaged, my wife informed me that she wanted to do a Time Capsule thing for part of the ceremony. "Great! I can...
  7. Simple cherry wall shelf

    A simple cherry wall shelf; I found the plans in an old magazine in a box. Blonde shellac and paste wax.
  8. Wooden Beard Combs

    One from Walnut and one from Blood wood, I made these combs for my cousin's husband for Father's Day. I sanded them to 320 grit and used Dutch Oil and then finished off with a paste wax. I almost wish I had kept one for myself honestly.
  9. Rosewood Floating Box

    Hey all, a little while ago a friend of mine contacted me and asked if I had time to build a special project for him to give to a close friend of his. My friend has been very kind to me over the years, giving me a whole bunch of wood for free at various times; from koa to teak, oak and some...
  10. Reclaimed Pine Telephone Table

    This table is 24" wide, 22"high and 11" deep. It was built for my parents, from the last remaining piece of lumber that I surfaced my workbench with: ~100 year old softwood boiler shipping crate parts, from England. The legs unfortunately are just construction grade pine, nothing special. The...
  11. Comfort Bird

    This is my first ever carving. My wife is having knee surgery soon so I figured I'd make her a comfort bird to help her recovery. She loves it. For those that may not be familiar, these are meant to be held and stroked with your fingers, thus there is no detailing needed. The act of stroking...
  12. Bedan for a buddy

    John McClure is building a lathe from scraps and I wanted to make sure he has something to work with when he gets it working, so I made a bedan for him. The handle is a sandwich of cherry and sycamore. I had enough of this sandwich for four handles for lathe tools. The ferrule is a piece of .50...
  13. Router Table Top

    I built a large (2' x 4') router table top for my Ryobi compact trim router that sits atop my WORX Pegasus. The top gets clamped offset so that the hole the router sits in is over the edge of the Pegasus. There is a miter slot for miter gauge. The hole the router sits in has both ledges for the...
  14. first bowl

    first bowl - done on shopsmith - sycamore finished with shellawax then johnsons paste wax both burnished in on the lathe found out that if i fill it with M&Ms the flaws become much less noticeable!
  15. Nested Spalted Maple Serving Trays

    These serving trays were made as a Christmas gift and are made entirely of Spalted Maple. They're made to…well…nest. I never worked with Spalted Maple and I'm amazed at the look of it. The sides are joined with compound mitered dovetails and the bases are screwed on with the screw holes...
  16. Cecil's Stairs

    If the sliding-top box I built a few weeks ago was my "freshman effort," these pet steps qualify as my "sophomore effort" here on LJs. Being very new to woodworking, I decided to get some practice with dovetail and half-blind joinery. The opportunity was afforded by virtue of our nearly 15...
  17. Walnut 4-Pot Herb Tray

    Fairly straightforward project here. One piece of walnut, routered out, chiseled, sanded, and finished. Never having made anything with a router before, this is my first project using one. I love my new Bosch 1617-variable speed router! I purchased the combo. and used the plunge router base...
  18. Handles on Skinner Knives

    Three small skinner knives I recently put handles on. The woods used from top to bottom are padauk, purpleheart and verawood. I made the pins out of brass tubing. And on the verawood knife I filled the pins with a turquoise/epoxy mix. I finished with a paste wax then buffed them out with a...
  19. Simple Weather Station

    Just a simple weather station I did for a family member. They bought me a digital one that tells you everything so I returned the favor old school.
  20. Pallet end table with receptacle

    I made this end table out of pallet wood for the top. The legs are Douglas fir 4×4s. This was my first project, so it's certainly not perfect. Life would have been so much easier if I had had a jointer. I didn't go by any specific plans or drawings, i just looked at a few pictures and came up...
