    This is the table that goes with the chairs I posted a week ago.I had a lot of fun making these.I designed them but they are I would say a shaker-craftman style,if there is such a thing.I hope you all like them.
  2. Stabilized birch painted shot glass (bowl 43)

    Another shot glass made from black-dyed stabilized birch. Textured, then carved and painted with red enamel, and finished with Tried and True Varnish Oil. Not my favorite, but I learned something from making it, so I'll call it a success. 2½ inches (65mm) high and 1⅞ inches (48mm) in diameter...
  3. Shop Air Filter

    As I have slowly matured and gotten older, I have been starting to become more aware of setting up woodworking as a hobby that will keep me busy post-career. One of the things that I think about is the quality of air in my shop. When you work with wood occasionally, I don't think you notice as...
  4. Giraffe Bookcase

    Our daughter has always liked giraffes. About three years ago, either I or my wife (neither of us can remember) discovered a commercially available (but apparently now-discontinued) giraffe-shaped bookcase, and I saved some photos of it, thinking that a replica would be a good gift for our...

    A pair of bookcases made of poplar with laurel (Nectandra spp.) burl veneer. The back panel is plywood and finish is polyurethane. All joints are hidden or sliding dovetails. Shelves are adjustable. Dimensions: 30×60x143 cm (tall case), 30×60x90 cm (short case). The short case has 1.5 shelf...

  8. Garden Arbor/Gate

    I'm still in process of designing this one. My wife and I are dividing up the back yard between a garden for her and a habitat place for the dog. We already have up some fencing which may or may not be temporary. The main gate between the two yards is something that we wanted to be relatively...
  9. Golf Club Cabinet

    I finished this project earlier this year. It was my first project that was not a fixture for my shop so it was very much a learning project. I have been an avid golfer for a long time. Whenever I purchased a new set of clubs I kept my old set. I have been keeping them in golf bags in my...
  10. Blue Pine and Barnwood Memory Table

    A modified version of my interlocking joinery coffee tables, this one replaces the center panel with a box made of old pine barn boards, and a piece of tempered glass that lifts off. It is designed to hold anything you want to display on your coffee table without it getting in the way.

  13. Focus on the Workspace
    Several months ago I set up dust collection in my shop. Purchased a Laguna 1.5hp Cyclone DC from rockler during the Black Friday sale. I did lots of research to rearrange and set up my shop properly for dust collection. After a lot of work and finally working DC system I did one project. The...

    Hey all, My name is Dan and I am just starting out with woodworking. I have my shop set up now where I feel like I could confidently build something decent and structurally sound (I have built a few small projects for my shop). I decided to build an entryway bench that will also incorporate a...
  15. Focus on the Workspace
    I am about to start the process of building the 21st Century workbench and while in the planning phase, I have also been thinking a lot about my shop and how it is set up. You can see its current state in my workshop pics and here is a Sketchup model that pretty accurately shows the placement...

  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I didn't get this memo! Yesterday I stumbled across a way to calculate in fractions (of an inch) in Excel. In each cell, separate the whole number of inches from the fractions of an inch with a space. Like this-> 5 3/16 (5<space>3/16) Excel automatically formats the cell as a fraction and...
