  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a 7 yr. old DW 735 and about 8 weeks ago started getting snip on the leading end of boards. If I run narrow, 6" or less, through the center it works fine. If I run 4" or so down either side I get snip. If I run wide boards, over 10", I get snip clear across the leading end. The only...
  2. General Woodworking Discussions
    Hey all I recently bought an old Delta radial arm saw. It was in rough condition but I enjoy restoring old tools like this. It look like it had its motor rebuilt but no idea how long ago that was. And I’m waiting on a phase converter to start it. But I digress. I’m breaking it down and...
  3. Double Bed

    I have been a member of LJ's for around 10 months now, and it has become a regular call during my day. I came across a Maloof rocking chair browsing the internet, and that got me inspired to try and better my skills ( I think a Maloof chair has hooked a lot of people!). I have to echo several...

  4. Attitude

    I made this for my neighbor for Christmas.
  5. Surprise swap items

    Fibonacci gauge made of figured maple and cased in brass. I wanted a high polish on the brass but I figured out it is near impossible to do without getting brass swarf embedded in the maple. The plates were already pinned in place so I couldn't do anything about it. If I ever do it it again I'll...
  6. tables

    Saw the first one on fine woodworking magazine cover,I think.The second one is an idea of a member of Lumber jocks. Those who read my drill press forum,well i don't know how to load pictures there,I am trying though. Thanks for looking.
  7. Screwdrivers and Marking Tools

    As the title of the post suggests, the latest swap was screwdrivers and marking tools. Since I don't have a lathe to make handles for the obvious entries, I decided to make a trifold bit index that I came across in the Woodsmith plans. It holds both drill bits and the various driver bits. It...
  8. cutting board a la The Wood Whisperer

    Built this end grain cutting board from the Wood Whisperer tutorial. It's maple and purpleheart.
  9. Nightstand with Spalted Bookmatch panel

    I was without a project and decided to make some bedroom furniture for our guest room. I decided on a nightstand cabinet (seen here) and a large bookcase/display (in progress). Wife challenged me to build this as cheap as possible but still look nice (my projects for my own home usually go over...
  10. Luggage racks

    With three adult children and grandchildren coming to visit, my Dad decided that since he felt like he was running a hotel it should be provisioned like a hotel and asked me to make some luggage holders for the guest bedrooms to make life a little easier for all concerned… and here is the...
  11. A Recycled Chestnut Dining Table

    We just finished this chestnut table for a client in Connecticutt. It's a new version of one we built back in 2003. that one had a painted base and you can see it in the dining table section of my website here http://www.dorsetcustomfurniture.com/Items.aspx?mId=47&cId=65&pcId= . We wrote...
  12. First Dye Job

    Well here is my first attempt at dyeing. It is Figured Maple and I used the liquid Ritz dye. I put on a coat and it raised the grain. I let it dry and then took 4oo paper to it, cleaned with alcohol and then re-applyed the dye, same thing 4 times then took some 600 and 1500 grit to it and the...
  13. Hand Tool - Scratch Stock (Hardware-free Design)

    Using a wedge friction-fit design, I made a different scratch stock which can handle both flat and curved surfaces. This tool is chatter-free because of the full support given to the cutter. If you prefer to make a traditional scratch stock that requires the use of hardware, here's an example...
  14. Sapele Bench

    Here is a pretty basic but beefy bench I made for the foot of the bed. Solid sapele with walnut as the support/apron…. I picked up a great piece of 12/4 sapele from Hearne Hardwoods (only 30 min from my house!!!!) and cleaned up the rough milled board to find some beautiful grain and decided...
  15. Maritime Trash Can

    When we finished the office we had a metal trash can which really did not match so I came up with the idea of doing a bucket - you know swab the deck. Works perfectly as a trash can and adds to the overall theme of the office. It is 11 1/2" x 12".
  16. Another inlayed box

    Thought I would try my hand at inlay. The inlay is Walnut and the box is elmwood. I have so much Elmwood I may never use it all up. I wish I had got the grains lined up but this is my first inlay and only my second box. As with my first bowls this was bigger when I started. The plan was to make...
  17. Cedar Picture Frame #4

    This frame was comissioned to me by my wife for a picture she took of a storm rolling in at the cabin. The cedar was cut by a bandsawmill that we have set up at the cabin. Very handy to have around. I finished it with 4 coats of Teak oil . It turned out very nice I think.
  18. Xee

    Xee is the third in the Zee series of EZ mitred boxes. It is 92mm x 92mm x 58mm with a lift off lid. Materials are Holly and Ebony veneer over an MDF and Walnut base board, with Ebony lipping and a Birch ply base (to the finished box). Glue used was PVA, throughout. Finish is wax over sanding...
