  1. CD Shelves

    My neighbor is a huge music fan, and lately she has been going totally retro, buying a turntable, and bunches of records. Along with this revelation she wanted to dust off her CD collection, and bring it out of the closet and on the wall. They asked me to come up with a design for some shelves...
  2. A Fun & Easy Project

    After a recent difficult project which took longer to build and was harder then expected, I needed an easy fun project to build. And, with Christmas coming right around the corner, I thought some game boards were in order. They always make nice, small presents. So, I happened to get Woodsmith...
  3. Plane Till

    This is my plane till (much needed) made from blue-stained pine. It included my first hand cut box joints. I did not remember to take a pic before I had it filled! There is a tiny rare-earth magnet that sticks to the plane soles. Works pretty good. I really love the look of the blue-stained...
  4. Information Sign Board w/ Magnetic Frames

    This is another project for the summer camp I work at. It is a sign board that displays the pictures/cell phone numbers of our 3 staff hosts on duty, it has two 8.5×11 frames for general group information/schedule, and it has a weatherproof literature box to hold our camp maps. This is one of...
  5. Golf Ball Marker Plaques

    When my wife finally decided to take up golf four years ago, I was excited about the opportunity to play together not only in the area, but when we take vacations. She's hooked and actually plays more than I do now! At the time she started playing I started to collect golf ball markers from...
  6. Spline cutting jig modified to fit Delta Unifence and question for you physics pros out there

    After researching LJ and Youtube for spline jigs, I found a simple model from The Homestead Craftsman on Youtube and modified that version to fit the Delta Unifence weird profile. I added some knobs, threaded inserts and threaded rods for functionality. Nothing too complicated or fancy about...
  7. Kineti-Go Magnetic Shuffleboard - Magnetic Propulsion technology

    Kineti-Go Magnetic Shuffleboard is a game I invented in 2003. (for those of you familiar with my Kinetic Magnetic Sculptures- the concept for those came from my quest to make a magnetic "trophy" to award at a Kineti-Go tournament in 2004). Though I am a lot busier than I used to be, I still...
  8. Tile Top Box in QS Sycamore

    This is a small tile top box made from quartersawn Sycamore with Arts and Crafts detailing (photo 1 & 3). The box is similar to one that I saw on the internet (unfortunately I can't remember where to give credit). The top (photo 2) measures 6.75" wide x 7" high and is made from 0.75" thick...
  9. New Z-Stiks Completed!

    Working with wood is so fun! Some of these are finished with Lacquer and others a 2 part Auto clear coat paint. I do like how they turned out. We are discovering how the different woods give different tones. So far my favorate tone is Myrtle wood and my favorate look is Spalted Maple burl. To...
  10. A little Shop helper............

    In a perfect woodworking world I would have only wood oriented vises. But my shop is used for a lot more than just my wood working addiction. I have to sharpen lawn mower blades, cut metal pipe, wrestle with stuck nuts and bolts and fix whatever the grandkids manage to break. So a metal...
  11. Lathe turning tool tray (for mount on lathe)

    Lathe turning tool tray For my new lathe I have seen something like this here on our beloved LJ, and found out fast, that I needed to make me one. So now the tools are where I need them, when I need them. (Just have to buy some proper tools now…). Materials are scrap - MDF and some pine. NOW...
  12. bracelet

    This bracelet design came from The Drunken Woodworker. It's a cool design. The wood is canary wood and purple heart, finished with wipe on poly and paste wax. The two halves hold together with rare earth magnets.
  13. Woodworking Skill Share
    I've meant to do do work with rare earth magnets before, but never really had a reason until now. I've attached metal items to wood before, and had good luck with silicone adhesive and poly glue. But I've tried both the silicone and the poly, and neither seems to stick to the magnets. I...

    New Year...New Hobby I have been known to take up a hobby or 37. At 42, on the cusp of 43, and well into the 'balding' years, I have decided that, in lieu of a midlife crisis, I would take up woodworking. Don't get me wrong, a new car and a 27 year old with huge, firm, hands would be wonderful...

    Fitting Tormek profiled leather wheels on a Scheppac (for dummies) Fitting Tormek profiled leather wheels on a Scheppac TIGER200S watersharpener. And preparing them for use. Ok some will ask why! And the answer are simple I could not get hold of a Scheppac wheel… So if others are having the...

    The Basics For my castle bookcase project, I needed to make a series of 1" holes in a long strip of 1/4" plywood. I figured the easiest way was to use the drill press. To do so efficiently, though, required a fence and table. I've been meaning to make one of these for a while, so I figured...

    Rare Earth Magnets Around The Shop I find handy uses for rare earth magnets all over my shop. I just thought I would share this as a tip. Here are some of the places I use them: My table saw fence has a magnet embedded in the plywood top I made and it keeps a ruler handy: These magnets...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a project to do for work and I am planning to use small 1/4" dia 1/8" thick rare earth magnets or neodymium magnets. I need a lot of them, 192 to be exact. I would appreciate any suggestions for a reasonable priced source. I am afraid rockler and woodcraft will be too expensive.
