  1. Obligatory First Bookshelf

    From the few things I've read, it almost seems like a right of passage to build a set of bookshelves as one of, if not the, first project as a woodworker. The cliche wasn't enough to dissuade me. It didn't hurt that we had boxes and piles of books strewn across the house, either. I was feeling...
  2. Doll chest

    This is a doll chest that i built for my 9 year old daughter's birthday. It holds her two American girl dolls. I now have built something for three of my children and have three more to go. This doll chest does have a couple secret compartments. One drawer has a false bottom. The shelf on the...
  3. Kitchen Occasional Table

    This table was commissioned by a co-worker for his mother. All the dimensions were determined by the the client including the unusual height. When designing this table, I decided to use long tapers on the inside edges of the legs to give the table less of a blocky look and feel. The table is...
  4. Rabbet Plane

    Slowly crawling out of my offline cave back to online life… This here is my most recent project that I finished couple of days ago: wooden rabbet plane. Beech, some little brass and steel. Finish is two coats of BLO. 200 mm / 8" long, 40 mm / 1-5/8" wide, cutting angle 55 deg. Will see how...
  5. Christmas Gift Boxes

    My wife has recently fallen in love with decorative and specialty soaps that she has found on Etsy. She has ordered a BUNCH of them to give as Christmas gifts this year. She asked me to build some boxes that she could use to hold all of the various soaps for her mother and sisters in law. I...
  6. Using up scraps

    This is an exercise in using up scraps in the shop. I had the four western cedar sides of the box assembled and sitting around from prototyping a shut-the-box game. My first test was too tall, so cutting one of my boxes in half vertically gave me the two I needed to make the games. The base is...
  7. Anniversary Gift Box

    My wife and I just celebrated 15 years of wedded bliss. As this was a Milestone Anniversery, it seemed fitting to splurge and really let her know how much she truly means to me. I spent many restless nights thinking of the perfect gift. I wanted this to mean a great deal to her. I finally...
  8. Chechen and Sycamore Box with Gilded Sycamore Knob

    This is the second box I've made and I've had the same problems with both of them. While I like the design a lot, I had some trouble with the hinges. As a result, the lid is on a little cock-eyed. I'm sure I can fix it, but I haven't had time yet. The woods went together very nicely, though...
  9. Tea Tray Ornamented by Hand

    Wood: Sapele & mahogany ply for bottom Joinery: Dowelled rabbet Reeding & beading tool: Veritas Combo Plane Shaping tools: Coping saw and rasps For a different stylish (also hand-made) tray, check this out: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/393857
  10. Hand cut dovetail and groove experiment

    This is a simple hand cut dovetail box. Usually when we need to make a groove in the boards for slotting in the box bottom and lid, the piece that holds the corner has to have a stopped groove to hide it from showing. To cut it with hand, you have to chisel it out rough and then use a router...
  11. planes, planes, and more planes

    He last few weeks I've been on sort of a plane rush. It started with moulding planes and has moved extensively to rabbet planes. I have a no.6 hollow and round, a no.16 round, and 4 or 5 rabbet planes. So far all of my planes use blades hacksawed out of old table saw blades. They work quite...
  12. Couple of wooden planes

    Here's the story: my main project is a workbench build. Almost done. You know, "almost" may last longer than you want it to. So to finish it I need a router plane (have couple of ideas, but they're still cooking…). And to make a router plane I needed couple of other planes: round moulding...
  13. Rabbeting Block Plane--Left hand, Krenov style

    Frustrated with not having the perfect tool when trying to do some hand tool work on a couple recent projects, I was wanting/needing a plane that could do flush trimming, but on the opposite side of my #78. Looking at purchase options, it was either spending a couple hundred for a new Veritas...
  14. Maple/Mahogany Bookends

    yet another request for a project- this time from my sister made from maple and mahogany, just used a rabbet joint sanded to 320 and finished with 3 coats of satin brush on polyurethane very simple and quick to make, and a great project to use up some scraps Thanks for looking, Mark
  15. moving fillister plane

    I made this plane from some beautiful quarter sawn cherry with bubinga accents. It works like a champ and I have maybe $50 invested in it. Sure is a lot cheaper then a decent vintage one. Check out my blog to see how I made it, the build process is a bit long to describe here ;). The blade is a...
  16. Lathe chuck and jaws boxes

    When I bought the Nova chuck for my lathe, I ended up getting three different sets of jaws for it. Since I can only use one at a time, I built little boxes to hold the jaws that aren't being used. They're very simple: a 3/4" thick pine offcut from my bookshelves, with a groove to hold the jaws...
  17. Beercase 2022

    For this year's BeerBBQ swap I decided to make a briefcase for holding beer or BBQ fixings or whatever. But since I had already done a BBQ Briefcase back in 2020, I wanted to make this one more beer specific, as well as upping my game a bit. I started with some butternut I had on hand, resawing...
  18. Carving tools till

    Quick and dirty. Scrap pine from the bookcase project, mitered dovetails, with a board rabbeted into the back for the magnets, plus holes drilled into the bottom with a 1" spoon bit. Fits all of my most-used carving tools but the 25mm wide #1 sweep, which is about 3mm too long. Cleat and spacer...
  19. Home for the #45

    New home for the #45. Had to make a Box Joint jig to do this. Here's a link to the Blog
  20. Mobile Tool Carts (for my vintage radial arm saws)

    I made two mobile cabinets/carts that will be used as stands for my vintage DeWalt radial arm saws. The cabinets were made from maple and plywood. These were built heavy duty to support the weight of these cast-iron saws. Here's a video that shows more photos and construction details:
