  1. cubby hole desk

    We had some remodeling done and ended up with an empty stripped down closet in the dining room. My wife wanted the computer out of the bedroom so … ta dah … the remedy. Added the lights as an after thought. The whole unit slides right into the opening and I have it projecting into the room...
  2. Router Table / Outfeed Table

    This is a router table I built which also serves as an outfeed table for my table saw. I applied a lot of the same techniques that I used for the wall hanging cabinet I made however this was much more complicated with drawers, an access door to the router bay and a large table top. The hardest...
  3. Apple mermaid

    This curvacious lady was hidding in a MacInntosh orchard for many years.
  4. Shaker Boxes

    My 13-year-old daughter and I made some Shaker Oval Boxes as presents before Christmas. Most are cherry or maple, but I experimented with walnut too. These are very easy to make with some simple equipment. If you're interested in information or supplies contact John Wilson. I have no...
  5. Arch-Top Dutch Door

    A few "firsts" on this one. My first commissioned piece, my first time building a door, my first time working with white oak, and my first time having to deal with wood expansion. I've already had the doors taken down and returned to trim the edges. As I live in sunny, hot and humid Florida...
  6. Poker Case Box

    Last year, I posted a request for a wooden Poker Case Box for my non-profit organization's upcoming Poker Tournament (fundraiser-April 2015). Tim Haenisch (Command Performance Wood Design), designed, and, built this for the event. It's quite beautiful, made out of California Oak. It has room...
  7. First Plane Project, inspired by Mafe!

    This is the first plane I have attempted. I got inspiration from Mafe, and his wonderful work. I had an old and dry piece of oak batten in the store doing nothing, so I thought I would try this. I rushed it, so it is a bit rough around the edges, and elsewhere! I didn't spend enough time...
  8. Cecil's Stairs

    If the sliding-top box I built a few weeks ago was my "freshman effort," these pet steps qualify as my "sophomore effort" here on LJs. Being very new to woodworking, I decided to get some practice with dovetail and half-blind joinery. The opportunity was afforded by virtue of our nearly 15...
  9. Cherry Pig Cutting Board/Serving Board

    This is a project I cranked-out yesterday. We were going over to friends' house for dinner, and they were serving 24-hour roasted pork shoulder, so I thought this would be an appropriate gift to bring along. I free-handed the image onto the cherry, then cut it out on the bandsaw, sanded it...
  10. Craftsman Slate and Quarter Sawn Oak Coffee Tables

    Here is my craftsman style coffee table set. They feature 16×16" slate stone tops, and thick quarter sawn oak construction. Most of the stock is 5/4, except the lower rails which are 8/4. I kept the proportions fairly chunky, with five wide slats at each end. Through tenons and some inlayed...
  11. Red Oak Mobile Workbench

    This is my mobile workbench i made last year. Most of the materials came from scrap lumber from machine crates. It didn't cost an arm and a leg, just a little portion of my finger. Actually, 25% of my right thumb. I made the bench to my height. This means there is no bending over to work off of...
  12. 50 Caliber Coat Rack

    I have made a few of these now as gifts for guys transferring. This one I made from tiger maple and I trimmed it with wenge. I used TransTint orange, reddish brown and a few drops of dark vintage maple to get the color I was after. This was my first attempt at french polishing with shellac. That...
  13. LOML's Step Stool

    Well, after talking the project to death, I finally started and finished it. My wife and I are both "vertically" challenged and our age dictates that a dining room chair should no longer be an option for rummaging through the high cabinets and shelves in our closets. Our solution was gleaned...
  14. Stool for Mother

    Stool made for mother for sitting at mirror
  15. New Kitchen Cabinets

    I just replaced the kitchen in our home. The new cabinets are euro style with no face frames. They were constructed of paint grade birch plywood except for the doors which were made of solid poplar. The doors were assembled using biscuit joints and then rabbeted to accommodate glass on the top...
  16. First knitting bowl

    Shortly before Christmas I had the urge to turn something. My wife had wanted a knitting bowl for a while (one without the hole drilled into it) so I found some YouTube videos and gave it a shot. It's my first bowl on a lathe and I need to practice getting the inside smooth. My wife says good...
  17. Another Biscuit Joiner Jig

    This is my version (made it a couple of years ago) of the Biscuit Joiner Jig from Wood Magazine. Now that I have this made, it is very to clamp it to a table or bench and quickly cut biscuit slots. The only down side would be if you have to use the biscuit joiner freehand for some reson very...
  18. L-Shaped Computer Desk & Wall Unit

    This is an L-Shaped computer desk & wall unit I just completed. The box constructions, drawer and door panels are made of 3/4" birch plywood. The top trim, side trim, base trim, drawer cover trim and door trim are made of 4/4 solid birch. The top is made of 3/4" particle board covered with...
  19. Marketplace Classifieds
    I am selling my Akeda 1600 dovetail jig, along with the accessory package, and two Porter cable 690 routers. The routers are set up with the neccessary guide bushings. I used one with a straight bit and the other with a dovetail bit. It made it very convient. The jig is approx 3 years old but...
  20. Woodworking Skill Share
    I did my LJ research on this one with good results so I had no problem with bit depth, etc. from previous forums. But I have a problem centering the workpiece - it looks centered but has to measured out every time. Is there aneasier way to get proper spacing? I am using 3 1/4, 4 1/4, etc...
