  1. Marking Awl

    Hey guys! This was a fun little lathe project i made. I was tired of using nails to mark the centres of my holes before drilling so i decided to make my own awl! I used African rosewood for the handle, a brass fitting that i then turned down on the lathe and a old masonry bit i had laying...
  2. Keyrings made from scrap

    I try to utilise as much material as I can and these keyrings made from scraps of Oak are the simplest and fastest items I've ever made :) I needed to test the home-made sanding belts for my 6" x 48" Linisher and ended up with these great little gifts. finished with Organic Boiled Linseed Oil...
  3. Ukulele/Guitar Stand

    My very first wood project, a stand for my ukulele :) The imperfection is so obvious, hopefully my skill will improve with time.
  4. First Commissioned Piece - A LVDT

    So, about a month ago I finished a cutting board (LVDT) for a house warming gift for my old neighbors who bought a house around the corner. I didn't get a chance to take any pictures cause I finished it last minute, but it was basically identical to this one. I took that board into work to...
  5. Daddy, Would You Help Me...

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] My daughter (15) is a BIG fan of the Minecraft icons, stampylongnose (Stampy Cat) and Squid (iBallisticSquid) from YouTube. She wanted to do an art project at home of the faces of the character's 'skins' out of wood, so she asked for my help. I cut a bunch of 1...
  6. Router Table

    This is a router table I finished two weeks ago. I got the idea from the new yankee dude. He had too many drawers for me so I thought I would modify it and combine some things I liked from other tables I've seen and this is what I came up with. The carcus is made of birch plywood with cherry...
  7. Bent Ply Photo Frame

    Bend an odd number of layers of thin bendy ply around a form (including a piece of veneer with marquetry as the front and back layer). Cut the formed piece to shape using a scroll saw. Secure the clear acrylic photo holder with hand made (and threaded) nuts and bolts made on the metal lathe.
  8. Kid Shavers!

    Well, you don't actually shave a kid with them but kids can shave with them! I've been on a razor/shaving kick lately and the kids have been getting involved too. I decided that we all need our own razor to play shaving with. About an hour in the shop with some dowels, screws, and acrylic...
  9. Coffee table/storage table

    This is a coffee table I built for my wife a while back. She enjoys crocheting and needed somewhere to store everything, so I built this with 4.5" deep storage and cut grooves on 3 sides for the yarn to pull through (and so our cats and dogs would quit taking off with it while she worked!). All...
  10. Native American Flutes

    I have been carving and playing Native American flutes for some time now. this one I carve from a salvaged piece of Douglas fir while I was recovering from back surgery. I like carving different bird heads on the ends of my flutes, but the eagle seems to be everyone favorite. I use cedar and...
  11. Bird feeder from a log

    This is a simple woodturning project for the garden. I turned it as I would when making a mushroom then continued as making a lidded box, then added a small dowel for a perch.
  12. Ebonized Walnut Frame with Half-lap miters

    About five years ago, my wife and I went on a trip to Savannah. Down by the river we had our portrait drawn by one of the street artists. That picture has sat on our dresser since then while we hemmed and hawwed about what frame to put it in. I finally decided to just make one. I knew that we...
  13. Mahogany TV stand

    I finally finished my African Mahogany TV stand. I designed it myself. I'm waiting for the knobs, they are on order. If you interested in the design and making of this project I created a blog or you can visit my website which will have the construction in more detail. Angela
  14. More on my Homebuilt Router Lathe

    So you may have seen the video last week demonstrating my homemade router lathe in action. This is just a follow up of that video to answer any questions people had and take a closer look at how it operates. I also look at the imporvment I would make next time. Enjoy! - also see my website
  15. Is this a Mallet? Good Question.

    Well here goes. Another project. (Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?) Early this spring I purchased a Jet 1236 Lathe from a friend. He hadn't used it in over 25 years. A bit of cleaning was definitely in order. Besides putting it back together, as it was stored in the upstairs...
  16. Reclaimed Old Growth 2x4 & Copper Pipe Waterfall Table

    My take on the classic waterfall table is made from reclaimed, old growth 2×4s (from Rebuilding Exchange in Chicago) and from commercial grade copper pipe. The 2×4s used in the table are probably more than 100 years old (as are a few of the nails that are still embedded). This piece functions as...
  17. Sunset Tray - Scrap Wood Project -build video AlmFab

    Hey everyone, I just found out about this forum and am excited to share some projects. In this project, I go through my scrap bin and make a serving tray. With the variety of wood scraps I had on hand, I was able to create this sunset design going from dark earthy tones of walnut, rosewood...
  18. My wood mallet

    I made these wood mallets from walnut ,maple , makorie ,and an solid oak Handel From scrap wood in the shop I drilled 1 1/2 inch holes in the makorie center pieces and glued one side on and after the glue dried I filled the two holes with bb's and glued the other side on. Then I shaped...
  19. Power tool bench

    Built this Power Tool Bench out of mostly free/cheap plywood. It has 54 drawers on wood runners. Its funny how fast the drawers fill up. I like that all of the tools are plugged in and ready to use. No more having to setup a tool, now I can just walk up and use it.
  20. New Entertainment Center

    Well, it's finished! Earlier this year, we had to replace our TV. It only made sense to get a flat screen model to replace the old CRT type. Mimi didn't like the old TV/stereo center (last picture). It didn't match the new furniture,was too hard to dust, etc, etc. The old center had also gone...
