  1. Name Plate & Challenge Coin Rack

    Built this for a guy I worked with for his going away present. The 3 channels cut in the base are to display challenge coins (which are a traditional gift exchanged between military folks, usually with a unit's logo on one side of the coin). Used a Milescraft router pantograph to do the...
  2. Yoga Boards/Platforms (for doing yoga on carpet)

    My wife has been taking yoga classes for a few years, but she has been doing more of it at home recently. Until now, she had been doing it in our kitchen, but it's not a great environment. She and a friend had also talked about practicing together, and our kitchen won't accommodate that. Now...
  3. Live Edge Bookshelf

    Book shelf made out of solid walnut with zebra wood back accent panels. Shelves have sapwood toward the front edges and the middle shelf still has a "live edge" on it. Zebra wood back panels are book matched. Finished with hand rubbed Tried and True oil finish, a thin layer of seal coat shellac...
  4. Modular Dog Gate

    We call it the Schnauzer Area Denial System. Keeps Cooper out of the dining room and, more importantly, off the nice rug in there. I've got a couple others in the house made with different numbers of panels to deny doggy access to selected areas. Cheap Menards Pine with Minwax Water-Borne...
  5. Laundry Room Storage Shelf (Making a Useless Corner Useful)

    Our laundry room is small, so my wife and I try to maximize our use of the available space. There's about 17" of space between the dryer and the nearby side wall, but the back 8" of that corner was unusable because of the dryer vent duct and a large electrical box there. I built this simple...
  6. Cribbage box

    I made this box as a wedding present for a friend of mine. The box is 5" x 8." (I tried to get close to Fibonacci sizing). The top is Bubinga, the long side is Paduak and the ends are spalted maple. The bottom is alder. The top is chamfered into the sides giving a tight fit and allowing for...

  8. Reception Desk for Doctors Office

    This is a reception desk I just finished for our friend's office, she was moving to a bigger office and needed a counter to fit her space. She was very happy with it. It turned out much better than I expected. The desk and bar tops are southern yellow pine. The base and planking are all pine...
  9. Ring Box

    I wanted to make something for my wedding to hold our rings. The thought of using a pillow, like everyone else does, seemed lame to me. In addition, a wooden box will probably live longer than me and maybe my family will appreciate it someday in the distant future. Materials for this project...

    Barrel Head Trays $40/$75 The barrel head trays are crafted from recycled wine barrels from Napa and Sonoma Country Wineries. They are available with or without a lazy susan option. The tray has a minimum of three coats of polyurethane gloss finish. Satin finish or unfinished models are...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    Hey everyone! I need some help. I am brand new to woodworking so I need advice on how to preserve the burnt bard on a redwood slab. I am going to make a coffee table out of this beautiful slab and mount it on iron legs. This slab is from Coffee Park in Santa Rosa and it has a story so I want to...
  12. Finishing
    I have a quart of MW polycrylic. It has been stored for awhile and never opened. After I opened it, noticed it had a square lump in the can slightly larger than a golf ball. Some of the components of it must have congealed. It is not completely hard. Could the lump be heated a little...
  13. Finishing
    I'm trying to decide on the best finish for flag I've made which is impregnated with water based stain. I can't quite decide which would be the best choice. I'm trying to avoid any yellowing, so I know urethanes are inherently inferior in that department, but would seem to be the most durable...
  14. Finishing
    I have sprayed about a half can of straight-from-the-can Minwaxy Polycrylic with no problems (with an Earlex 5500). Today I decied to tint the Polycrylic with Transtint. I used .25 oz of Transtint per 8 oz of Polycrylic. I poured it the cup, started spraying, and the gun kept clogging...
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Started a simple project of building a set of cornhole boards for my nephew. Built the boards, 2 coats of white primer. 3 coats of paint, and 3 coats of Polyurethane. I purchased 2 Ohio State emblems to afix to the boards, and then I was going to cover with another 2 coats of polyurethane. I now...
