  2. 150 Gallon Aquariun Stand

    Here is another aquarium stand I built. It's for a friends 150 gallon tank. It is oak with mahogany trim. He wanted it stained the brightish reddish color.

    Hi All, New venture for me. I have been carving for several years and now I want to try a little turning. I just traded for a Jet 1014I with the extension bed although I may never use the extension. I thought I might make wheels for toy cars and trucks for the kids. I know I can buy wheels but I...

    So I happened to come into ownership of these cherry logs (or so I'm told) from a tree that had been cut down not too long ago. They had been sitting out without their ends sealed so there are cracks on the ends (see pictures). I don't have a whole lot of experience in woodworking (I don't even...

    Surface Preparation Ah… finally some woodworking at last. I don't really have any time or the mind space lately to focus on construction and creation much, and it felt like I was just collecting tools as of late. All with the preparation of 'one day' to be able to get to things. As it...

    Small beginnings These are the first couple of photos from my attempts to renovate my new garage. The previous owner didn't have it set up well so I'm filling in gaps, sanding, priming, painting, moving, removing, organising and eventually creating! But there's a long way to go before then...

    Turn for the Troops As I was tied up at a Craft Fair yesterday my wife and daughter went to the turn for the troops event at the local Woodcraft. They both turned a pen and added it to the package to be shipped. I am proud of both of, most especially my daughter. She is now 7 and has done...

    Introduction This is part one of ??? following my build of an oak storage bench. I chose oak because I am trying to match a client's cabinets. She needed a specific size and functionality, so in this video, I go over my Sketchup model and explain how I plan on building this project. Enjoy...

    Got a nice Maple log last weekend that I think can produce about six baseball bats? Questions: 1) Is one type of Maple better than another for baseball bats? 2) Is there a particular way I should "remove" the bats from the log? 3) How do I dry to prevent warping and twisting? Probably enough...
