  1. Journal Danish Adirondack Chair?

    With most of the router mortising jigs done, I put them to work, cutting the mortises in the side assemblies and the stretchers. With one side done, I discovered that the middle mortise on back riser was too large. I had cut it out at 7/8" wide instead of 3/4" wide. I repaired both...
  2. Mahogany Carved Twin Bed

    Ladies and gentlemen, This project was born somewhere at the local IKEA. I realized there that I wanted a simple and practical bed with the feel of beautiful real wood, chopped, carved, and finished myself. Here it is: Honduras mahogany - I didn't want to spend time working on a cheap...
  3. Finally, some shop time

    Finally got some shop time between the freak snow storms, rain and cold weather in south Louisiana. I had a flag inlay kit for some time that I picked up at Woodcraft and some inlay kits that I wanted to do. The inlay kits are really nice but you can't get in a hurry with them. And the blank...

  4. China Hutches

    These are a few of the china hutches I have made over the years. The first three cabintes are made of red oak. The corner cabinets are made of birch with a walnut stain. Face frames, side frames, doors and drawer fronts are of 4/4 solid stock. All other parts are cut from sheet stock. All my...
  5. I CAN READ THIS -IT'S BIG !

    Just a sliding block I made to hold 2 framing squares together to act as a large caliper . I made this from 7/16" oak flooring scrap and some jatoba offcuts . To lock the squares together I use a simple quick clamp which provides a good lock and lets me move the caliper without loosing my...

    This was an exciting project.a lot of learning was done along the way..first I had to flatten and remove the twists from the lumber so I built a very simple planing sled.The top was then assembled using biscuit joinery and breadboard ends..the carcass is held together with pocket hole screws.I...
  7. Winecellar

    This project I used heat treated spruce for looking rustic. Door is made without clue and nails its holding up together only with two routed wood backside this is the way they used long time ago, I wanted to try this technicue and its working. I also made these metal parts (from semifinished...
  8. Small bowl

    This was my first attempt at bowl turning. The inside is pretty rough, I have since bought a bowl gouge, so hopefully the next one will be smoother on the inside. The other thing that I have to admit is this is about 3 inches high and wide, and I start out with a 6 inch piece of cherry. The...
  9. Kitchen Cabinets

    These are maple cabinets with granite counter tops. I used prefinished plywood for the interiors with raised panel ends and doors. It was stained with a custom red/brown mixture, sealed with two coats of sanding sealer, sanded between each coat, and sprayed two coats with semi-gloss lacquer...
  10. Such a Waste

    Rick was in the building mood this weekend and so I put my wish list in and we made a couple waste bins out of the pine boards we got a couple weeks ago. The bins are nothing fancy, just the way I like it, and will probably get all distorted because they are fresh boards, but that will just add...
  11. Cocobolo jar with suction fit lid

    This is a Cocobolo jar with suction fit lid that I turned the other day. The grain match came out perfect on one side, but just missed the mark on the other side. The lid fit is the best I have been able to produce so far for a suction style, doesn't fall off but not so tight you have to fight...
  12. Kitchen cabinet

    Our kitchen remodel is finally nearing 90% completion. The first photo shows the completed cabinets and counter tops. The drawer units are custom order from Lowes. As you can see in the second photo, the upper section of the red cabinet is serving several functions. The vertical logs are the...
  13. Difficulties with a cutting board design

    Hello everyone, Have you ever started down a path and put so many steps in down that path that when you hear the path screaming at you that it is the WRONG PATH you just ignore the screams??? Witness the photos above. I wanted to try a "pin wheel" variation cutting board and knew right away the...
  14. Drill press table

    My version of a useful accessory for your DP. Just a couple pieces of plywood glued together, with some T-track set into it. There is a sacrificial 4" x 4" square of plywood in the middle to make tearout a thing of the past. I've found it very handy and I don't know why more manufacturers...
  15. Scrollsaw Blade Holder

    Just a quick weekend project - I needed a new blade holder for the scroll saw. I found a source online where I could buy poly-acrylic test tubes fairly cheap so I ordered a couple dozen. Once they arrived I searched the scrap pile until I found some pretty nice pieces - nothing fancy though...
  16. Another cutting board

    Another cutting board, but this time for my brother's birthday. Made from walnut and maple with a salad bowl finish. And yet another shameless plug for my cutting board program. :) http://lumberjocks.com/projects/11372
  17. Last minute easy gift: Step Stools

    I build a lot of step stools benches, stools, and shelves are easy builds and great gifts for the family. These take about 3 hours each to make after the wood is milled and ripped. I have one in the garage, and one in the house. I've found that freinds with high sitting pick up trucks really...
  18. WORLD'S SMALLEST END GRAIN CUTTING BOARD!

    You might remember when I exploded my first attempt at making a cutting board. I ran it through the planer once, no problem, second time BOOM! It was a poor clue up and I learned from the lesson. Tonight I was doing some cleaning of my shop and found the pieces in a trash bin. I hate to throw...
  19. Table Saw Accessory Cabinet

    Recently bought a miter sled for my table saw. Where to store it???? Could put it on the wall, or on a shelf…. I first had it to the right side of the fence on my table saw but it seemed like I was constantly relocating it. There is never enough storage or open surfaces in my shop. I built...
  20. Ridgid R4512 Tablesaw Outfeed Table

    Finished this outfeed table for my Ridgid R4512 tablesaw based on ideas from other projects and designs from lumberjacks postings. I designed the support knee brace to come off the rear axle of the casters so it is always set at the right height regardless of the shop floor. No leveling of...
