  1. Walnut/QSWO/Cherry DT Box ... for Ronnie

    "Ronnie" is my wife's (female) cousin. Ronnie … is coming up on Month Six of Sobriety. I'd imagine that some of you know that …. this is a huge accomplishment-not only coming to that place where you recognize that alcohol is NOT doing you any favors, but … actually quitting the bottle, and …...
  2. Jordan's First Box

    A couple of years ago I had brought some pallets home from work. The intent was to salvage what lumber we could from them and build some bat houses. The pallets had some fiberglass and white gel coat overspray on them. After Jordan (my youngest son) and I started cutting them up one of the...
  3. Auction Table

    We have a friend that is in auctioneer, this table would not sell at one of his auctions, and he purchased it and asked us if we would give it a little care. Susie and I have been working on it in her spare time. We try to help pieces like this resell, but we can not always put the devoted...
  4. 2018 Box Swap Entry

    Here is the box I created for EarlS and sounds like more so Earl's family. It is quarter sawn sycamore and walnut. I created the contrasting checkered pattern on the corners by laminating the two types of wood together before cutting the box joints. I had seen a box in this style before and I...

  6. Arts & Crafts Coffered Ceiling & Trim

    Coffered Great Room Ceiling using 5/4 red oak finish milled on-site in my shop. Hides four sprinkler heads which were carefully positioned during original construction so coffering would be in the right place. Ceiling was finished with 5/8" drywall and then the millwork was added. Some...
  7. Rustic Quarter Sawn Construction Lumber Coffee Table

    Using knowledge gained from the previous build of this same coffee table I used a higher grade of construction lumber. I used the 2X12X12 boards from the BORG. I was very selective to find boards with the tightest grain patterns and most possible quarter sawn sections. I went into much...
  8. Mahogany Kitchen Island

    This is the last major project I'm doing in the current workshop, and it's the crowning piece in the kitchen update for showing the house. The cabinet at the bottom holds trash and recycling bins in slide-out drawers, and the middle three drawers are sized for silverware, kitchen rags and...
  9. What's the word for ill-advised? Oh, it's Dictionary stand

    About 25 years ago, I bought my wife a big (humungous, actually) unabridged dictionary for Christmas. Since I recently took up woodworking, it seemed that a small table-top stand might be a good first project using actual (read: expensive) wood. The only other piece I built had been with scraps...
  10. Mission End Tables

    I made a mission end table to match our coffee table. My good friend liked them so much he asked if I would help him make 2 stands for 2 pieces of granite he had left over from a counter top. So, he did all the work, while I coached on the 2 granite tables. For his first woodworking projects...
  11. Lathe Caddy

    This was my little project last weekend. It is loosely based on a tool stand I saw in a book awhile back. I haven't been turning for very long, but it is amazing how many small parts (chucks, centers, wrenches…) that I have accumulated. The eight drawers in my design hold all of that plus...
  12. Tailgate Bottle Tote

    Thanks to Kiefer. His recent tote inspired me to make this one. This was made out of 2 spalted oak boards that were sawn 2 ways….plain-sawn and quarter-sawn. The dividers are slightly oversized in length and width so that they stay in place but can also be removed to just have a carry box...
  13. 1 Jar Jelly Cabinet

    Made out of quarter-sawn sycamore. It holds one jar of jelly and is a gift for Christmas…along with the blackberry jelly. It measures 7" X 4" X 4" and the "tin" is heavy duty aluminum foil that I punched a simple design in. It was tedious to say the least. Finished with Howard's wax. Thanks...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I want to try and grind a bevel in a test chisel. Until now, I've used water stone. I have an old Cman 3450rpm grinder and bought a white wheel, but now I'm starting to believe 3450 rpm may be to fast, especially given the popularity of the tormak low speed grinder. So what speed grinder do...
  15. Wood & Lumber
    I have been in a rather heated argument with a person about the sale of Cocobolo, Rosewood and Ironwood pot pipes that he makes. I was hoping to get some outside points of view. First, I really don't care about the ethics of selling drug paraphernalia. I don't use drugs, I don't endorse drugs...
  16. Blogs
    Preparing the boards From my blog: Now I start the full-size conference table for a client. This table will be 2X the size of this one I shared here, and submitted to the Winter 2009 Woodworking Awards: But I will change the edge treatment as follows: I want to be able do preliminary...

    Has anyone had experience dyeing QS sycamore Has anyone had any experience using dyes (not stain) on quarter-sawn sycamore? I have some beautiful stock that I want to use in table tops. But with the wild grain and softness of the wood, I thought I'd ask before taking dye to wood. There's been a...
  18. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Hey guys My wife is trying to earn some extra spending cash so she can buy some equipment for her photography hobby. She started up an Etsy store and is selling custom prints. Check out the store here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/KremerPrintandDesign?ref=si_shop I told her to make a...
  19. Wood & Lumber
    So I found this the other day. I was researching some data on some alternative home designs, fiber reinforced concrete and some other things. Really interesting stuff on a ton of topics, heres the one on wood and the characteristics of wood movement, by graph and datasheet...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am new to this site and fairly new to wood working. I am looking at upgrading my current Dewalt Contractor style tablesaw to something a little more robust with a larger crosscut/rip capacity. I have been looking around craigslist for some used units hoping to find a bargain. Today I just...
