  1. Biplane bookshelf

    Made this bookshelf at the request of my oldest daughter for her son who will be born in January. She wouldn't let me put much color in it. It's colored to her specifications. Pretty easy project. Just pine except propeller is maple. To make the rotary engine, I drilled dowel holes at 45...
  2. Unique Going Away Gift

    This being my first post on the site… Hello and thank you for taking an interest. As is tradition in the military, when a member of your unit moves on, it is customary to give them something from the unit… a challenge coin, a litho, a shadow box or something like that. But, every now and again...
  3. P-3 propeller clock

    I had seen a really cool looking propeller on the dawghousewoodworking website a while back. (I'm not sure if that guy still has his page up, but it is some of the best work I have ever seen in my life.) It had 3D looking parts and all the pieces moved like a real prop does. This is my...
  4. Airplane propeller rework

    Been a while since I've been here, too many other projects to do much woodworking, but some might find this interesting. I've owned my Hatz biplane for about a year and a half now. It originally came with a metal propeller, but it wasn't quite matched to the plane and for various reasons I...
  5. Navy Machinist Mate Logo in Wood

    Here is a logo for the Navy Machinist Mate, that I made out of Brazilian cherry, for a friend's retirement shadow box. The first two images show the piece in it's "natural" form, with no engraving and a coin in the center, but it can be made with nothing, or anything in the center, as long as it...
  6. Oak credenza with propeller shaped drawer fronts (from single board)

    I found this design by Soren Rose Studio, and made my own interpretation for our living room. Found this great piece of oak, which I used to make all the drawers with a continuous grain pattern. The drawers are 600 mm, 500 mm and 450 mm wide, and as the top and bottom row are different heights...
  7. SW/AW Machinist Mate Wood Propeller

    Another wooden propeller resembling the Navy Machinist Mate rating symbol. This one was for a customer in San Diego who is both Surface and Air Warfare Qualified. I sure do enjoy making these! :)
  8. US Navy P-3 Rotating Prop Plaque

    This is the second plaque that I have made like this. This one is painted vice using different flavors of wood. It's about 30 inches tip to tip. Made of Sapele and Maple. I planed down to ¾" and shaped the blades using mostly a belt sander as seen in the last two pictures. It rotates using...

  10. Blogs
    Shaping an asymmetrical "propeller" drawer front I'm making a credenza based on a design ("Reflect storage") by Soren Rose Studio I saw on a website (http://www.finnishdesignshop.fi/huonekalut-kirjahyllyt-reflect-lipasto-p-5098.html). The drawer fronts are like propellers. I have never done...
  11. Finishing
    Hey LJ's! I found out a few weeks ago that my wife and I are expecting a child in June. I immediately had a hair-brained idea to build a pull toy…I call it the Duck Train: Note that the above pic is only half the train…2 more little ducks are in progress. I would like to paint the duck...
  12. Finishing
    I need a little help…...truth be told A LOT of help. I'm new to the site and apologize if this has been asked previously. I just finished a nice pine bed and finished with a combination of minwax oil based stains. We really like the look of the unfinished wood so we used a minwax finishing...
