  1. Pasta Drying Rack

    So this was my first official build for another person. My wife and I have some close older friends (twice our age actually) who we get together often with and cook and drink wine. One of the things we've started liking to do lately is make a lot of homemade pasta to go along with various...
  2. Pallet Bed for Christmas

    My daughter asked me to build a bed for her out of pallets for Christmas. This is where the fun began. I waited a couple of weeks before I started and built the foot of the bed with some cubbies (Picture 1). I brought it in the carport where I primed and painted it (Picture 2). I didn't try...
  3. Gifts for new parents, Rocking Horses

    One toy that every kid I've ever met loves playing with is a rocking horse. It's easy to see why; they get to ride and rock on it, it's brightly painted, and it's an animal they can pretend play with, great for imaginative play. I've made a few of these now, mainly for friends children. This...
  4. Yoyos (Christmas Presents)

    It is that time again; time to make Christmas gifts for the kids. These are made from a kit that features a bering on the axle. It takes a little practice, but the bering make it much easier to to tricks. In addition to getting Christmas gifts out of the way, I found this to be a great skill...
  5. Photo Display Blocks with Instructional Video

    I wanted a creative way to display a bunch of pictures that didn't require plugging in a memory card or battery powered digital frame, and I remembered the clear plastic photo cubes my grandmother had when I was a kid. This woodworkers take on that theme involves gluing pictures to a block of...
  6. Broken "Purple" Heart

    My Fiance's favorite color is purple and she picked out a chunk of wood from Woodcraft one day and left it with me to suprize her…Suprize!!! I broke it! One of the times when you wish you were wearing your face shield when you feel a bowl graze against your cheek as it flies by your head...
  7. Trey

    Made this tray for a card playing friend of mine. I make lots of these trays in different sizes for wedding presents, etc. The small narrow ones make nice cracker treys to go along with the cheese boards we all make. Actually kind of easy to make. The angle of the sides are 38 degrees just like...
  8. Simple Walnut Gift Box for Earrings

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] One of the few requested items for my wife's upcoming birthday was a pair of 'dangly cross earrings'. The store suggested to me did not have any, so I found a pair online. They arrived without a box, so, having recently broken down a branch from a nearby walnut...
  9. Mortar (without pestle)

    New products to be launched on website next week as still awaiting pestles. Larger mortar made using a solid lump of European Oak. Smaller (still 130mm2) ones made using 22mm oak flooring offcuts laminated and worked. Already have preorders for these so it's back to the cellar Monday morning...
  10. Jewelry Box for my Bride

    I haven't had much time or space to do any woodworking while the Navy has me working hard in South Carolina and living in an apartment, but I made a friend with a small shop and used all of my available time towards the end of this past summer to build this jewelry box for my wife to give to her...
  11. Vanity for Christmas

    Our neighbor mentioned to my wife that her 9 year old daughter really needed a little vanity to start putting her girlie stuff, and seeing as its Christmas, and seeing as how I have this nifty wood shop, wouldn't it be nice if we could build something for her. I went out to the shop Saturday...
  12. Dos Tortilla Presses

    As a lover of all Latin cuisines, I decided I needed a tortilla press and why buy one when I thought I could make one. The first one I made was made out of Red Oak and Maple from my local BORG. I was happy with how it came out but as with all new projects, there were a lot of things that I...
  13. Christmas Present: Walnut Cork Board

    I began this project a couple of years ago, and decided to finish it for a Christmas gift this year. This was built to fit a specific location in a family member's house, just above her desk area, above the counter she uses as a desk and below the cabinets. I decided to take the first couple of...
  14. Timing Gear Lamp

    I made this Lamp for my Dad for his birthday. For my wedding he restored my 1971 Dodge Dart, So since I cannot afford to get or build him a car I figured I would make this lamp with the Original Timing Gear from the dart. Now I just need to figure out how to make a lampshade with the old...
  15. Happy Holidays Fellow LumberJocks!

    My wife actually is the artist here. She patiently allows me to spend countless hours in the woodshop, then beautifully finishes whatever I bring her. This time it is her project. Oh I cut the shapes, but she planned and created these great Santas. Cut out with band saw, edges sanded with a...
  16. Mahogany Presents

    A quick and easy project for my girlfriend. I made a little box, a pair of earrings, and a bracelet. All of these are made of mahogany and finished with General Finishes arm-r-seal.
  17. Letter Openers

    I made around a half dozen of these for presents; some with handles others just from walnut. The original shape was the drawer cut out from my walnut bandsaw box. The scrap from the bandsaw box was sliced into "knife blanks" and the rest of the shaping was on a belt sander. They turned out much...
  18. Bottle opener (+ metalworking)

    Hi BJ! I'm glad to present my latest project. This week I came with the idea of trying another approach to creating a bottle opener. As you will know, some months ago I made another one for a friend of my who is living in Germany, with very different design (check it out here...
  19. You for nephews 1st birthday
