  1. Router Sled on the table saw

    I'm working on a couple of end tables, and I glued up the table tops (16" x 16") a while ago. The tops started to move and warp a little and weren't so flat anymore. I decided to build a router sled the other day to get them perfectly flat. The flattest reference surface I have in my shop is...
  2. Purple Plum Wood Lamp

    I built this lamp from a plum tree that was in our backyard, and, after drying for about a year I built it and assembled it during a demonstration speech at school.
  3. Using them planes

    I don't like doing countertops in Pine for obvious reasons but this case was different. The look of the house is rustic; heavy timbers, hand tool finishes, you get the idea. I had milled some 80mm thick slabs of old growth Pine a while ago and one of these was perfect for the job. It was a...
  4. Tavern Table Renovation

    It was twenty years ago that the tavern table (poker table, card table, pocket table) shown in the picture above was pulled out of an alley shed set for destruction. Long (early part of this) story short, the top had come apart at the glue joints and was black from the ravages of time and...
  5. 2010 Travel box

    Here is the 2010 version of my yearly travel box. This one has seen a year of use. It is made of cherry with cocobolo miter keys and a bookmatched cocobolo panel for the top.

  6. Spokeshave

    I bought the large, low angle, spokeshave kit from Lee Valley a while back. Been setting on the counter long enough. Decided it was time to make the spoke shave. I picked out a chunk of hububalli (snakewood) and some rosewood to prep some blanks. Ended up making four blanks just in case I...
  7. Reclaimed Wide Plank Heart Pine Barn Wood Flooring

    I milled this floor from our reclaimed "Granary Boards". Most of this wood came from barns in Pennsylvania that were 150-300 years old. I ran the rough boards through the planer and wide belt sander, then ripped it to the correct widths. Then I ran them all through the shaper with a flooring...
  8. Putting on the Shutter Plank

    Working on the Shutter plank on the first year project at IYRS. There's a number of steps involved for putting on basically any plank on a boat. The shutter plank is the last plank on the boat.

  10. Japanese Saw Horses

    If you prefer not to read, the video is here View on YouTube I had wanted a pair of these style of horses for a while. Since I am very limited on space I wanted something to use in tandem with my planing beam that would let me work with wide panels for future projects. These are about...
  11. Paper Shredder in Disguise

    I saw this piece of furniture in a catalog and thought "I can make that". It's a small cabinet that hides my paper shredder. This piece started out as poplar since I had plenty left over from building my work shop. But I wanted it to match my existing office furniture which would best be...
  12. A Giant Japanese Planing Board

  14. A tribute to our vintage architect

    Yesterday Mafe posted a grease box with the hope that other LJ's will follow….. Here is my version - Mk I. I only had about an hour today to come up with something. The dark timber is Imbuia, the inlays, Forest Alder. After fitting the brass screw that forms the hinge, the lid looked odd to me...
  15. Traditional Oilstone Holder

    I decided to make a traditional holder for my Norton medium India stone (8"x2"x1") after watching Bill Carter talking about oilstones on YouTube. After searching the internet for other examples, I merged all the elements that I liked into my design. It features a pitched roof, opposing chamfers...
  16. My first "Re-claimed Pallet, Coffee Table"

    Although I have a bunch of leftover slats, it still took three pallets to make this. I am really happy with it and it is going to be my first piece too be sold in a legit furniture showroom. I'm getting stoked seeing what I can make with just a few hand tools in my apartment.

  18. The Bucket

    I recently picked up an edge trimming plane from Veritas and decided to use it to make a bucket. This first go at making one was going to be a simple as I could make it. It wouldn't have hoops nor did I expect it to hold water. Making the beveled side pieces was rather easy with the trimmer...
  19. Solid Wood Tool Cart Lid/Workbench

    I found this old tool cart and since I needed one I decided to load it up and see if I could fix it up. After I sanded it down and printed it and painted it and the drawers, I decided that I definitely needed a lid for it. Wwl I need a workbench to so I took a 1×6 and stripped it down into...
