  1. Greene and Greene Motawi Tile Frame

    We visited the Gamble House in Pasadena. As a woodworker, I was so moved by the craftsmanship that when my girlfriend showed me the Motawi tiles she really liked, I told her I would make a commemorative frame for them in the Greene and Greene style. It was extremely difficult for such a small...

    A set of wenge and resin necklaces for my wife's boutique clothing store.

  5. Indoor Planter via WWGOA

    Woodworkers Guild of America powered by Wood Magazine posted this project by George Vondriska. I've upscaled my planter to be 6' long and 2' wide (it holds 4 cubic feet of soil easily). I'm actually making 2 but after about 8 hours in the shop on Sunday I only finished one (the other is 60%...
  6. Park benches made from reclaimed fenceboards and posts

    Sorry about the bad pictures - my camera doesn't take great photos in bad light. Hopefully you can see what I was doing…. We had a need for several park-style benches to be used around the farm, for customers to sit on when watching their kids ride horses, etc. We didn't want to buy a lot of...
  7. A Geeseebo for my MIL

    This is a small Geesebo that I made for my Mother-In-Law. She has three concrete Geese that were on her porch. But people couldn't see them, so I built her a Geesebo for them. It comes apart into 3 pieces. The base splits the body in 2, and the top comes off. It's all made with...

  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Has anybody had experience or know anything about pressure treated cabinet grade plywood. I am quoting a job in Hawaii and the specs call for all wood to be pressure treated for termites. My suppliers don't know much about it. I was about to start searching on the net, but thought maybe some...
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    I was reading in one of the woodworking magazines that too much clamping pressure can cause a glue starved joint. I read through the article twice and it gave no tips on how much pressure should be applied. I have been noticing that some of my cutting boards are lacking a solid glue line. I...
  11. Finishing
    Hi. I am running my Sanborn HVLP sprayer. Cup on the bottom. The big one from Menards. Getting intermittent spray out of the tip. Its even as clockwork. ON OFF ON OFF ON OFF like it was set to a metronome. Problem remains when I dial the air pressure down or up. Though it seems to get more...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm making a sign for my sister's hair shop. Since it will be out in the weather I used pressure treated wood. I was wondering what paint would best suit the situation. I made it T and G, filled the cracks, and plan to route the lettering. It can't be stain it has to be bright paint it is for a...

    How much clamping pressure is called for when clamping a glue-up? Tight or barely enough to keep the pieces from moving until the glue sets? Or somewhere in between? Thanks
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've been working with my hands, and my brain, since I was 14, and worked in several fields. Started carpentry in high school, rough for residential and commercial though I was trained in fine cabinet making. In my early twenties I worked in finish carpentry, fine cabinetry and high-end...
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am looking to design a project that will need a steam chamber and a pressure chamber to remove the bubbles from 2-3 inches of epoxy. My issue is that the project will be long 8-10 feet and 8-10 inches wide. Any suggestions on how to make a chamber that will do both steam/pressure that will...

    Awaiting a manger I was commissioned to build a creche for one of my Dad's customers (Well, Dad was commissioned, but I'm "subcontracting" At any rate I'm getting paid to do woodworking, and not resorting to family to supply the cash!) Before meeting my client, I whipped up a bunch of rough...

    What was your first experience with handplanes? Mine was about 7 years ago, I still wasn't doing anything woodworking like, and we had moved to a new apartment where the bathroom door wouldn't close since it was too tall and would hit the jamb (well- actually we mounted one of those...
