  2. Oak shelf

    My wife wanted an apple-motif shelf for a spot in our dining area, and saw one at a craft fair that she liked. In true woodworker fashion I said to her, "I can make one of those for you" A few short years later…I finally did. As you can see, it didn't take all that long to fill it with...

  4. Wooden Sunglasses

    As a result of the request of several viewers, a few weeks ago I began painstakingly crafting these solid wood sunglasses, out of what I believe is Australian Red Cedar, but I could be wrong. I used the lenses from a cheap pair of promotional sunglasses, which surprisingly offer a little bit...

  9. Cat Condos Too

    So far I've only posted workshop projects but recently I saw that someone posted their cat condos and thought I'd put mine up too. I've made about 4 different ones but these are my two favorites. If you go to buy them in the stores they cost a fortune so it's easier to find some left over wood...

  11. Making a Cool Looking Bottle Opener

    Hey all, I made this bottle opener last week to give as a gift to a friend. Check out the video bellow to see how I made it, it is very simple, it just took a while to cut the metal out! On that subject I think aluminium would be a good alternative, it wouldn't rust and will be much easier to...

[I got her a SCMS for Christmas] We had discussed the making a...
  13. Wine Bottle Stand

    I've seen a lot of these wine bottle stands, on some other sites. I've never made one till now because, well.. I don't really drink wine. My thought on that changed though recently when some friends of ours who drink wine recently bought a new house and I thought it might make a cool...

  16. Second project - Hallway mirror

    This is my second project but the 1st one for which I started with raw wood. The first time I made my own planks is an experience I will always remember. Ripped and (power) planed to thickness. It is quite a large mirror and is very heavy. The wood is Alder : not very known, not very used, not...
