  1. Restored Tilt Top Table

    Restored tilt top table for a friend. All three legs had to reattached, which led to some creative clamping (second picture). There were also many bits that had simply broken off over time. Each of the three tripod legs had snapped off at some point in the life of this table, and blocks had to...
  2. How I fixed my table saw (with video)

    I managed to break the two hand cranks on my Craftsman table saw. I couldn't bring myself to buying new ones and it was only the center section that needed repair so I came up with this. I designed the patch in Sketchup and cut it out on my CNC router. Turn the sound up! Thanks for looking!
  3. NASA SpecOps Shadow Box

    This was done for my SWAT team here at JSC. The patch was flown aboard the International Space Station by Astronaut Chris Cassidy on expedition 35/36. It measures 15×17x2 and is made from some 8/4 walnut I had laying around, and the splines are cherry. This is a first for me using the splines...
  4. Mini-Slab (Natural Edge)

    I have an Aunt that wants a centerpiece condiment tray for her dining room table that will hold the regular salt, pepper, condiments, spices, etc. The Olive Wood has a deep religious sentiment to her as she wants this to be the focal point for a meeting with her fellow clergymen and dinner...
  5. Yet Another Cutting Board (Walnut, Maple, Padouk)

    I made this edge grain cutting board for my Christmas for my new brother-in-law. Every time he comes over, he compliments our cutting boards that I made so I decided to make him his own for the holiday. It's made from Walnut, Maple, and a strip of Padouk. I hand chamfered the edges and routed...
  6. Disc Golf plaques

    I made 30 of these for a local disc golf tournament last week. The patch was ordered from a Boy Scout supplier. He donated them with embroidering for the event. The patch was a new embellishment to the disc golf trophies I've seen in the past. As you can see, I used oak, and cut the shape of...
  7. wood geode?

    My father fancies himself a rock hound, so during my daughters science fair on geode growing I came up with a very unusual idea. I inside out turned 4 blocks of redwood, before I glued them together to turn the outside shape, I epoxied in some crushed calcite (wanted to try to grow some alum...
  8. Sharpening Jig/workstation

    I built my own fingernail grind jig based on the King Heiple design on fine woodworking. It is a fingernail grind sharpening station, mounted under my grinder and installed on the wall in my shop.

  10. Daughter's Nightstand

    I made this nightstand for my daughter's room. I was bored one day and my girlfriend said I could tear down some shelves in the basement and use the wood. The shelves were made of pine most of which were rough on one side.The boards where all 1"x 12" though so other than one side being rough and...

    I bought this thinking I could use it on my saw but it won't fit over my Delta T2 fence. So what can I do with it? Any suggestions? Really don't need it on my miter saw. larry

    Over the past few years I have accumulated several used nailers. Some of my best finds were a Porter Cable 18g brad nailer for $5 at a garage sale and a 16g Bostitch finish nailer online for $36! Anyway, none of my nailers came with cases. How do you store your nailers outside of a case? Do...

    Design - Feedback Welcome I've seen machinist toolboxes here and elsewhere a couple of times, but never felt they would be useful for my woodworking needs as they seem to be aimed at organizing smaller items/tools/etc, so I never paid much attention to these boxes. With my recent interest in...

    Dulcimer Nut and Bridge Replacement Over the summer my wife came home after visiting a former colleague and brought in an oldish mountain dulcimer. It had hung on the wall at her friend's house and she was wondering if it could be made to play. I'm no expert, but I took a good look at it. It...

    My first dutchman I got it in my head to try and make one of those bow tie shaped inlays which are sometimes called a dutchmen. Put simply, I have some learning to do. [Above] I cut a bow tie from a piece of spalted, sanded it, and traced it's outline onto a scrap piece of pine. One possible...

    Getting started I have an old beat up rocker (should I name it Eddie Money?) It belonged to my mom, and she refinished the paint on it at some point. But the joints in the undercarriage have been falling apart for a decade, and it's finally time for me to fix it up. I started with the pot...
  17. Finishing
    Hi I'm new to this forum, just been browsing through the posts and was wondering if someone out there could offer me some assistance. My current project is a 3m x 1.2m Maple dining table. The top has been made with 32mm hard maple and has breadboard ends pinned in with brass pins. Its still...
  18. Finishing
    I have some small cracks that I am trying to repair. I've read that making a paste from sanding dust from the same wood + glue can do the trick. I've tried with both Titebond as well as CA glue, but in both cases (worse with the CA), the crack ends up much darker than the surrounding wood, even...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've been thinking of picking up a compact router- either the makita, or dewalt - $99, $129 (lowes). I have 2 decent plunge ones - craftsman 8 amp, and a B & D 9 amp, (one was given to me), but whenever I'm doing something I'm wondering- would this be a lot easier and faster with a little palm...
  20. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I have a right tilt TS (Uni). I need to [safely] cut what would end up being a block of stock (or several species) that can be sliced into individual butterfly patches. The stock starts out being roughly 7/8" x 3/4×6". If you know a butterfly patch, it's basically four 15° cuts around the block...
