  3. Pot Rack

    My kitchen has limited cupboard space, and my wife had been asking for me to build some sort of pot rack, so when this plan came out in a recent woodworking mag. I had no choice but to make it. I got the chance to learn a couple new skills along the way; it was the first time that I really...
  4. Shaker Benches

    I've made 6 of these shaker benches in my 9 years of woodworking. I love creating these benches. Four of them are made of maple and two are cherry with simple joinery no nails or screws.
  5. Woodcarving
    A rough out is not always necessary for carving. I began this project with a photograph of what my customer wanted and a block of basswood 12×6 x 3 inches. I copied the photo to the block front with carbon paper and the side views were my best guess as to what they should look like, as I only...

    Design ideas, need some feedback OK, so yeah - another blog about a router table, but since I'm going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I've had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2...

    Learning Experiences Once upon a time . . . in a far away land . . . no wait . . it wasn't really that far. It was our basement actually. There was a place FILLED with books. (How does this relate to a garbage can holder? Read on.) The culmination of Peggy and I's households made for a...

    Introduction Hello fellow Lumber Jocks! I'm starting a little blog series on my work-in-progress DIY lathe. In short, I want to build a lathe to turn a few pens, without spending ~$60 some on specifically pen turning materials and ~$200 on a lathe. So, I want to try turning. I've always...

    Starting Out The Bible study I am a part of is having a party for Christmas. Each person is supposed to bring one gift, spending no more than $5.00. I saw this as a challenge. $5.00 isn't much and I wanted to offer something of higher value. Lucky for me, my wife recently brought home...

    How it began I tend to make strange things. Often my inspiration comes from allowing my mind to wander freely, going whereever it seems to want to go. Part of this process is to allow, or even encourage, free association with dis-similar things. So it was when Prometheus Transformed began...

    The Beginning So the other day I got a wild hair to try hand cut dovetails. Up until now I have always machine cut ally my dovetails. Typically, my thought is, if there is a tool/machine that will let me do something more quickly and accurately, why wouldn't I use it. However, now I'm fully...

    Getting Ready.......... So, My wife and I visited a "Kitschy Artsy" shop in Havre' De Grace, Maryland a few weeks back and started talking to one of the owners about a really nice Stained Glass Portrait of John Lennon. My wife mentioned that it looked a lot like one of my scroll-work pieces...

    TOE the Trickle Outward Effect On my walk this morning I paused to admire the Willamette River. It is wide and this morning it was quiet, peaceful and full. As always it was flowing past me, underneath my footbridge. The body split apart and came back together again with grace and ease...
