  1. Wooden Camera Holder (Macpod)

    When I joinrd FLICKR some months ago, and since joining Lumberjock I have become more aware of the inadequacy of my Photography. I decided, therefore, to take it more seriously, especially with regard to photographing my woodwork which is my main interest. One problem is how to hold the camera...

  3. Custom made digital frame system based on Apple TV

    As do many people, we have a ton of old digital photos that we never look at. I had the idea to design a system so that when the family is eating dinner we can look at all these old photos from time to time. After looking at the commercially available digital frames, I was unimpressed. I...
  4. Reclaimed Redwood Hexagonal Coffee Table set

    Trio of hexagonal tables (I call them "Hextables") made from reclaimed redwood from old buildings that were being demolished.

  5. Traveling Plate Rack v1

    This is a traveling plate rack made from oak for wet plate photography. After the plate is fixed, it needs a place to dry before a protective varnish coating. During this drying process the silver coating is very delicate. Version one of this holder was mostly a prototype and I learned a few...
  6. Darkbox Version 1

    This is version one of our traveling darkbox design from CAD to finished. It was really my first attempt at CNC cutting pieces and attaching them together. It's amazing looking at something in CAD and then comparing with the finished product. I learned a lot about fastening and finishing wood...
  7. Photographing our Projects

    A few have asked me about how I photograph my projects. I will give a simple run down on how I do it. It may not help everyone, as I have some equipment that most people don't. I'll post a few of my most recent boxes and tell you how I shot them. I like to "feather the light on my subjects...
  8. Photo studio lamp

    Two things drive this project. 1. I don't like buying things I can make. 2. I can't afford fancy factory made studio equipment. So, because I'm re-igniting my old profession, photography, and want to do perosnal portraiiture, I will be building most everything but the camera. This is the first...
  9. Gum printing on wood - an old photographic process

    I used the gum printing process to print a photograph onto a pine board. Gum printing is an old photographic process which was first done in the 1840's, and uses gum arabic and ammonium dichromate as the light sensitive emulsuion. First you print a photo onto a transparency, then spread the...

  15. Another poker table

    I was on a poker table kick for awhile as you may notice. A friend of mine liked my first table so much he asked me to make one for his bar. This is it. All made of pine. He requested it have chip holders built-in at each seat but since then regrets it cuz it takes to long to stack the the chips...
  16. Toddler Table & Chair (#2)

    So I made another toddler table and chair. I wasn't really happy with the painted top on the other one. I was really pleased with the way this one turned out. I cut down some 2×4's into 2×2's for the legs. Had some 1×3's for the stretchers and a 1×12 joined with the Kreg jig for the top. I...
  17. Leash & Treat

    Around Christmas time i was asked to make a Leash & Treat, not know what that was i did some research and found out that what they were and their function so i started working on one. All of the ones i saw pretty much looked similar but the one thing majority of them had in common was how the...
  18. Cherry Vases

    Here are a couple of recently turned hollow vases (or vessels) from a big limb of cherry. As you can see, some spalting made its presence known. These are some of my first attempts at creating a hollow form - but I'm hooked! The smaller one measures 3.75" in diameter by 4" high. The larger one...

  20. Mini Bench Condiment Holder (May 2013)

    The mini picnic table condiment holder was a fun build but wasn't really my design. So, I came up with this mini bench condiment holder. It holds a lot more. It will hold ketchup, mustard, salt, pepper, napkins, plates, and utensils. The entire build was less than one 8' 2×4 for the bench and I...
