  1. Router table build with lift, plunge feature and clear top

    This is my latest creation. It is long past due. I have been using a real crude router table I threw together a few years ago. As in many of my projects I wait for the parts to come together to avoid high costs. The top on this is 1.25" thick clear lexan bullet resistant glass. It was salvaged...
  2. Quick & Easy - Crosscut Sled

    The trick here is to use your existing mitre gauge to quickly make your sled square to the blade. This project is assuming you already have your table saw blade and mitre gauge properly aligned. I made my sled with lumber I already had laying around. With this sled I am able to produce...
  3. One last chisel mallet

    Only one picture. The head is some kind of black plastic and measures 2×2 x 4 ", I turned the handle this afternoon. It is maple. Overall length is 14". I just needed something to set wedge pins in wood that wouldn't damage the wood. The faces on the head are absolutely flat, no crowning. I was...
  4. Wood Cookie Sander Stand

    Created a two drawer stand for wood cookie sander. This is a bench model random orbital sander attached to a two drawer mobile stand. The stand has two full extension drawers that hold eight different grit hook and loop 9" abrasive disks. The abrasives are kept from curling using a sheet of...
  5. new bowl

    Wild Cherry Salad Bowl. 9 3/4" by 3 1/2" Finished with 3 coats of General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish. This is a blank I got about 6 months ago and have been wondering how it would "turn out". Robert
  6. Crib for Deacon w/ built in night light

    This crib is for my son, Deacon. It was finished 2 days before his birth. I told my wife I wouldn't be late, but I never promised I would be early, either. Anyway, the crib design is a mash up of 2 different designs we both liked at Babies R Us. It was made to compliment the dresser for the...
  7. Acrylic Barrier

    Here's the acrylic barrier I recently built. It's basically a plastic shield to help block the spread of germs and viruses. Many businesses are adding them to their counters to keep their workers safe during the pandemic. I'm sure this could be a useful project for people to make and sell this...
  8. Tiny Push Block

    The smallest push block I have ever created. Made from cell cast acrylic (Chemcast) with a silicone drawer liner glued to the bottom and an acrylic drawer handle welded to the top (using WeldOn/SciGrip #3 solvent). This helps me route super small objects on the router table. NOTE: Clear...
  9. Speaker Stands

    My second real woodworking projects … speaker stands built from padauk and finished with Tung Oil/Vanish blend. This wood is beautiful to look at but the red dust gets everywhere. Also needs to be finished quickly or it ages into a very ugly grey/brown color. Loose mortise and tenon joinery...
  10. old looking barrel top chest

    I just recently made this chest back in November for a co-worker/friend's wife for her birthday. She loved it! I did a little extra on the hardware as you can see. I don't have old hardware readily available so I put my artisitc talent to work and made my own with what I had and will continue to...
  11. First Resin Pen

    So this is my first resin pen. The blank was made as a test from a friend all the way across the world in Australia who makes resin jewelry and bowls. He had never heard of resin being used to make pens and decided to make me three blanks and send them over the pond so I could see if they...
  12. Handles for a marking knife and two violin knives

    I ordered a Ron Hock spear point marking knife and two single-beveled violin knife blades. These are the handles I made for them. I picked up an odd-sized cherry board from the bin at Rockler. I cut off a chunk long enough to make a handle and ripped that into three handle-sized blanks using...
  13. green wood, adze, ax and knife

    Here are some carving projects I've been working on over the last little while. They're all from white birch except the large bowl, which is sugar maple. The first photo is of a shrink box - I took a whole birch log, turned it round on my springpole lathe (it was crazy the way that large piece...

  15. Contemporary mailbox

    My winter project, finally mounted last week to replace an aging black steel box. Cedar with a General Finishes oil stain, grooved construction. Front is a piece of plexiglass bought online. Routed out the house number from a font found online and transferred. I decided to hang it using two...
  16. Contemporary Toy Chest

    This toychest was inspired by an arts-and-crafts chest on the cover of Fine Woodworking (I think that was the magazine). It's soft curly maple and purpleheart. It's finished with a sealer coat of blonde shellac and then water-based poly. I used the poly because it's supposed to have some...
  17. Turned “Classic” Style Purple Swirl Acrylic Fountain Pen

    I have moved on to higher level pen turning already and this is one of the first Classic Fountain Pens that I turned out. A friend was visiting the shop (garage) and I was showing off my new toy (mini lathe). I was running through the explanation for the pen making process and of course showed...
  18. Zero Clearance Inserts From Cheap Cutting Board

    This was a long awaited project. I have needed to replace the Zero Clearance Insert that I bought the saw with for years now. I guess learning the table saw and what I wanted out of it was more important that the insert. Well, I have built some skills now and have been slowly improving the...
  19. CMS Workstand

    Hi all, First Project, more or less successful for a beginner - This CMS bench was born of necessity, see second picture. It was also an opportunity to learn more about my new Craftsman table saw (more about that later). Anyway, it's not fine furniture, sort of a hybrid of other much nicer...
