  1. Home made lathe - solid attempt

    So… I wanted a lathe, but did not want to buy one. Too cheap… So what does a person do? Make your own. I reviewed Matthias Wandel's and Ryan Nodwell's lathe designs on their respective YouTube channels and based on their approach I crafted my version in sketchup. Initially, I designed it as...
  2. Flight Equipment Plaque

    Just finished making this plaque for a retiring Flight Equipment technician who went on to become the State Command Chief for the CT Air National Guard. I cut the helmet in half freehanding it on a table saw. I couldn't find my laser level to put a straight line across it to mark it for...
  3. wooden pullies

    I've been itching to make some wooden pullies since I saw this video: These were made for hoisting a pair of kayaks up to the garage ceiling. The rollers are turned out of 3/4" hickory scraps and the blocks are cut from some maple pallet scraps. The axle is a 5/16" steel rod. The synthetic rope...
  4. Red Oak and slate craftsman style coffee table

    Using red oak, I made a frame for three pieces of slate, and then built the legs and skirt. I stained with a waterbased cherry stain/dye. I liberally used the stain, and rubbed it into the wood. It started to come alive. I finished it with a poly. The slate is uneven, but still works great...
  5. Name Sign

    Used a little of the fire wood on this. Also used some salvage scrap. Wood burned and flamed before spray finish.
  6. Ark Cabinet

    Recently my wife and I were invited to attend a dedication Shabbat for a local Jewish Synagogue's new building where the Ark cabinet that I designed and Woodleaf built was the centerpiece of the ceremony. The Ark cabinet for those of you that are not familiar with Judaism houses the Torahs for...
  7. Electric motor pulley puller in plywood

    The pulley on my old Craftsman band saw sheared in half, so it was stuck on the shaft so I made this pulley puller out of plywood and some bolts. You just turn the nut on the center bolt and hold the other end of that same bolt, which moves the apparatus away from the motor. You need a slot...
  8. Reproduction Antique Rocking Chair

    I bought this hardwood rocker from the local junk dealer for $10 and faux finished it to give it an aged, well worn look, then put a price tag of $175 on it. I didn't skimp on details on this project. It took hours of hand work to get this look. The varnished maple was sanded to give the faux...
  9. The Heidi Lamp

    This is The Heidi Lamp. I've been admiring all the wonderful lamps posted here on Lumberjocks and had to try and make one too. I built this Lamp for my cousin Heidi's birthday. I made the center portion using box joints, which were cut with my stack dado blade on the table saw. The biggest...
  10. From Termite Damage to Pergola

    Although I much prefer working on fine furniture, when you have the tools, have the skills, and own a home, you occasionally get pulled into home improvement projects. Add to that a wife than knows you have the tools, have the skills and you often get pulled into home improvement projects. LOL...

    JUST BEEN HAVING FUN MAKING STOCK

  12. Christmas Reindeer

    My daughter from my other projects is home from college for Thanksgiving and helped me make a set of Christmas Reindeer. We used White Oak with Early American stain and finished in Satin. Always love when my Daughter works with me in the wood shop. Happy Holidays to all my fellow wood workers.
  13. Flip Top Planer Cart

    I got tired of lifting my planer or kneeling on the ground. Time to build a cart. This is based on the Wood plan with a nod to the Woodsmith "small shops" cart. The case is made of two layers of 3/4" luan plywood, edged with redwood. I used all scraps for this project except for the steel rod...
  14. Reclaimed Grey Barn Siding Sliding Door

    Here's a nice looking grey siding covered sliding barn door we did. This wood came from Iowa. This cool door covers the entry to a pantry and uses our 8″ v groove wheel hardware. I love this oversized hardware. It glides so smooth. I used the new style black phenolic door guide I recently...
  15. Pulley Pendant

    This project didn't require much when it came to woodworking other than the wood mounted base. I have seen a few variations of pulley pendant lights on the web and thought it would be neat to build my own. I came across an old pulley and hanger at an antique mall. I bought the light hardware...
  16. Mushroom Wood and Red/Grey Hemlock Siding Sliding Barn Door

    The sliding doors I make allow me to put multiple types of wood surfaces on each side of the door so it can blend with whatever motif the customer has in the room(s). On one side of this door is our reclaimed mushroom wood siding that we surfaced and lacquered. The other side is reclaimed...
  17. Calico Sliding Barn Door

    This door was featured in North Vally Magazine and East Valley Magazine as well as Scottsdale.org. It has reclaimed barn wood material from 3 different states. It's a huge door! Weighs a lot. It has a flat lacquer finish and the steel has a special rusty patina and lacquer on it. Custom...
  18. SMALL PARTS HOLD DOWN (EDIT )

    A week ago SERGE/Bricofleur posted a hold down that I thought was a handy device . Thanks for the inspiration Serge ! Well this is my version which is different in several ways . I used wooden springs with sandpaper pads to hold the material being cut on both sides of the saw blade and also...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am trying to get to work my neighbor's bandsaw which hasn't been in use for about 10 years. I went through the manual, changed the blade and adjusted the tension, the guards and such things. The saw worked reasonably well for a few minutes until it started to vibrate with quite a noise and...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    My table saw belt recently broke. I bought a link belt to replace it, but I'm not sure if it will work with this particular table saw and if it doesn't should I replace the pulley's or get a different belt? Here is a picture of the table saw And here is a picture of the type of belt it had(the...
