  1. 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. The first step of the process is taking the spiling off the boat. The spiling is what you see in the...
  2. ARRR The Pirate Ship | Custom

    This is a pirate ship bed that was custom made for an Interior Designer. Their client for this bed is a PGA golfer. It is a full size and I built another one similar to this one back in 2007. This one the designer made some modifications. We added a mast with crows nest, steering wheel...
  3. PLANK

    I have been wanting to do this "project" for a while now so I could have my own "Buddy" hanging around the shop. You know, someone I could carry on a general conversation with, bounce ideas off of, or get expert advice from (he is a piece of wood after all). I had true concerns about getting his...
  4. Valentines for my wife

    Very simply, I hate buying cards. Buying chocolate is always a catch twenty two where my wife both loves it and hates it. Blah, Blah, Blah, It makes me fat, Blah, Blah Blah. I think you have all heard something like this. So, I made one this year. It's a little early but by some standards...
  5. My entry in the Cutting Board Makers Club

    This is my third attempt making a 3D cutting board. First two I didn't get the angle right. It's made out of maple, cherry, and walnut. I used the plans that SPalm and RetiredCoastie have but changed it a little. I made a jig on my miter gauge with a toggle clamp to get the angle just right. I...
  6. Aromatic Cedar Goblet

    A couple of months ago, I was given a PSI Mini Lathe by a co-worker of mine. While I've been working with wood my entire life, woodturning is a totally new experience for me! I started with the basics - learning each tool in an inexpensive set I purchased. I cranked out a bunch of tops and a...
  7. Sapele and Madrona Skate Deck

    Finally I was able to make a longboard for myself. Sapele and Madrona finished with polyeurathane and wax. My own design. Just a simple plank with wheels.
  8. Planktop Workbench

    A coworker asked I help him build a workbench for his garage. I, of course, jumped at the opportunity to get more time in the shop. It's especially fun when it's somebody else's project and materials and they are learning alongside you. The workbench is very simplistic and from a plan in...
  9. The Pirate Ship | Custom

    This is a bed that was completed on 10-16-2007. It was designed by a customer. They liked our original boat bed, but wanted one that looked more like a pirate ship. We came up with this design. It has a flat black finish with Red Mahogany accents. In the place of the trundle is a large toy...
  10. Walnut plank headboard

    Walnut Headboard for the wifey. I made this big enough for a full or queen. It has a plank style back with mortise and tenon jointery. The posts are 5×5 sq posts with cedar 3×3 centers (since walnut is too expensive for something that big, plus it helps with keeping the weight down. My wife...
  11. Walnut Nightstand/endtable

    Walnut end table/nightstand to match the head board I made years ago. The sides mimic the headboard with chamfered planks. The top has a lot of sap grain contrast while the inside has adjustable shelving. The drawers are made with locking jointery with five panel doors and drawers. finished...
  12. 10 wood cheese plank

    I thought I was making a cheese board until it was all done. When I gave it to my just-engaged daughter she informed me it was a cheese plank. When my wife chimed in "well of course, duh" I learned a new term :) Simple 1" thick glued up plank, 12" x 30", with salad bowl finish for food contact.
  13. Woodturning
    Just "learned" how to use a lathe. Spent the week end practicing by making wine bottle stoppers. ( have a long way to go ) Does anyone know of a source for the tips? I can't afford WC retail prices. The list of "I want one" is growing.
  14. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am installing engineered wood laminate flooring (that I will staple down) in multiple rooms, and need advice on how to do it while minimizing transition pieces and direction changes. A rough layout plan follows, and in the large room the planks will run left to right (vs. top to bottom) of...

    At last, a resawing jig! I got 2 1" Timberwolf blades from Suffolk Machinery Corp. - 2TPI and 3TI - several months ago, and have been dying to try them out ever since. In that time I had several more projects, mom's 10-day long yearly visit, my best friends' wedding, a project I built for that...

    Milling Walnut, Silver Maple, and some mystery logs! Hey all, Thanks for checking out my first blog post! I've been collecting logs for the past year or so with the intention of milling and drying them, but only recently got around to it. Most of it is from jobs I've done for people cleaning...

    USA olympic clothes all made in China. Right or wrong?
  18. Wood & Lumber
    Hi everyone.. My family has purchased just above 1000 sq. feet of rough sawn pine boards of varying lengths (10-16 ft) and widths (10-12" or so I've been told) to put down for our cottage floor. The main debate is whether to butt it or tongue and groove it. My Dad and I re-tongued and grooved...
  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am looking for any helpful advise anyone may have for the installation of plank flooring. I own a house that was built in the 1800's with gorgeous center chimney. It was renovated in the 60's but still need a lot of work. Right now I have plywood for flooring which my girlfriend says in not...
  20. Wood & Lumber
    Hey everybody. Name's Brinkley. Thanks for having me. So out here in New Mexico I have access to a bunch of huge, green pinon. Has anyone milled pinon before? I'll be up there soon and wanted to know if it would be worth my time. Bench seats and posts are my interests.
