  1. Wood handle for table saw fence

    Hi again LJ! The plastic handle of my table saw broke so I decided to make a new one on the lathe using a scrap piece of Ash wood. I also decided to engrave my shop name with my new X-Carve. To add some contrast to this beatiful piece of wood I ebonized and finished it with a natural blended...
  2. Votive candlestick from firewood

    Little wood turning going on- firewood to a votive candle holder :) Details in the video on wood and my beginning lathe skills
  3. bottle stopper

    This Bottle Stopper was hand turned on a wood lathe and cut to shape then sanded to a smooth finish and polished to a brilliant shine. It is made out of King wood. The stopper is chrome with a rubber seal to fit most bottles. It is 4 ½" tall and 1 ½" round.
  4. Wands

    My Grandson, Bryan, came to visit for the week and wanted me to make a Harry Potter wand for him. The crooked wand is Crepe Myrtle. The straight wand is an old venetian blind rod. Details of the build with more photos are here.
  5. Finally a project with a plan, well almost...

    A good friend of mine has a son that is interested in metal forging because of the TV show "Forged In Fire". He started making small items by using a torch and tiny pieces of metal. When his dad showed them to me I was very impressed because he was only 12-13 years old. 3 years later he is...
  6. Walnut Wine Bottle Stoppers

    These are my first every bottle stoppers. I've turned a bunch of pens before (I really need to post them) and wanted to start tuning things I could hopefully use to help pay for the awesome new lathe I made these on. They are both cut from Walnut scraps given to me by Jim aka WoodArtbyJR and are...
  7. Farmhouse Table

    This was my first project but will definitely be the first of many. My wife wanted a farmhouse table for our dining room and after looking at how ridiculously expensive they can be I decided I was going to make one myself. All in all the cost of this table came out to around $150. I used cedar...
  8. Valerie's Nail Polish Shelf

    My wife requested that I make her a nail polish rack. I had a short 10/4 piece of mahogany that the entire project is made out of (with the exception of the front lip and french cleat, that was left over from a previous project). I re-sawed all of the parts from the one piece of mahogany...
  9. Endgrain cutting board

    So I haven't done any wood working since high school. I was quite into it and took it all four years but have since become interested in automotive and machining. When we moved back to my home town, my dad gave me a cheepy contractor table saw, and miter saw, and I had come by a decent old...
  10. Curved Drawer Front Night Stands

    This is a set of nightstands that I've just recently completed. This was the first attempt I've made at doing any curves on a project, and I achieved the look by cutting individual pieces of 3/4' pine and laminating them together. The process was actually less time consuming than I would have...
  11. Rocking horse

    This is a rocking horse I built for my 9 month old baby grand daughter Abby. It came out great and she loved it. It built it from a design I seen in wood magazine. The plans were great. The hardest part was getting two colores stains on one board. Next one I may cut the mane out of 1/4 inch...
  12. 18th Century Dressing Table

    This was a fun, yet challenging project. It was my first attempt at carving ball and claw feet. Built from Mahogany, using full width pieces, (22"wide boards), we closely followed the construction details found in the original 18th century Low Boy's. We did use compression methods to ensure the...
  13. Shop made tools #6: Ruler Stop

    Just a simple ruler stop. Made from beech and a modified brass nut. The magnet inside holds the ruler tight and ad some friction during precise setting. The last pic is a little tip: I added 2 magnets to my ruler. So I can pick up it very easily. Thanks for watching! Bas
  14. Rotating Vise Base. Not a good carving exercise.

    Next in the series, a fairly basic project that started out as an exercise in decorative carving. As you can see there isn't much carving. This vise is one of my all-time favorite ebay purchases and came with an interesting rounding up tool. (Yet another vise mounted tool that is laying on a...
  15. Computer Desk

    This is a floating top desk made of solid walnut with zebrawood drawers. The top is book matched and the base is all mortise and tennon Joinery. Fun project to make and was my first try at hand cut dovetails. Enjoy.
  16. First French Polish Project

    This is my first (and only, to date) French polished project. The box is made of curly walnut, padauk, and curly maple inlay. The box is about 11.5 inches wide, 9.5 inches deep, and 6 inches tall. The feet, clasp, and mortised hinges are brass. The interior is faux suede. Woodburned into the...
  17. Valentine's Day Custom Heart Jewelry for the Wife; Silver, Burled Walnut, Crushed Turquoise Inlay

    After many years of giving my wife woodworking gifts for presents for days like Valentine's Day, she's sort of tired of them. I can tell in the first "look" when she opens something whether it's a hit, or not. I have almost given up, to be honest, and between you and me. This year, on the...
  18. Cocobolo Hearing Aid Case

    Hey all, here's another little project I've just completed. My son was diagnosed with mild to moderate bilateral permanent hearing impairment at the age of 22 months. He got his first pair of hearing aids at that time and wears them everyday all day and will for the rest of his life. He and I...
  19. Second Persimmon Natural Edge Bowl

    This is the second natural edge persimmon bowl I've completed.
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I picked up a Handler unit off craigslist for a hundred bucks. I already had a Red Wing dental lathe I used frequently, but it was just the dental lathe with the after market left and right spirals I'd installed (for a total investment of twenty-one dollars). It was great for polishing...
