  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. Scrap Wood Butcher Block Hanging Shelf

    I've been looking for projects to clear out the scrap bins lately, and here's one of them. Made a panel with all sorts of scraps, but it wasn't thick enough for the back of this piece. Made another panel with pine and used the cutoffs from the ends of the scrap wood panel to create a backer...
  4. Mag-Bars

    I made these a few months ago as gifts. Now that they've all been given, I can post about them. I got the idea after seeing Benchcrafted "Mag-Bloks" and decided to try to make some myself. I picked up some random offcuts from a local wood place for a good price-cherry, walnut, red-oak, QS...
  5. Argyle drop catch

    I really liked how my previous argyle cutting board turned out so I decided to make some drop catch bottle openers. made with curly maple, yellow heart and bubinga (I think). Tree rare earth magnets used to hold up the opener to the surface (CMS Magnetics® N50 Disc Neodymium Magnet Dia 1×1/8"...
  6. Walking Stick or Poor Man's Meteorite Detector

    I made an order for several rare earth magnets [from KJ Magnetics] in the one hundred pound pull range for use in securing switch boxes, mounted on ten foot cords, to my dust collectors. I had one left over,a 2×6 laying around and was inspired by a friend's conversation about metal detecting...
  7. Magnetic Key Holder

    This one is a magnetic key holder. I made it out of spalted maple. The piece was extremely fragile and I had to fill some gaping holes so I used epoxy mixed with some red pearl dust (all the red spots). I then used Wenge for accent inlays. Since the maple was so fragile I didnt want to hang it...
  8. ND Cribbage board

    Haven't posted in a long time (or even been on here). I did this back in June. I've started school again and am frantically trying to finish my oak desk, which is where I'll be sanding/oiling this morning after this post. This was made as a wedding gift for my cousin. It's yellow birch with, I...

  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    I added a little pantry to the many projects tied to a kitchen remodel. However, because my house has low ceilings and a curtain rod for door curtains interfered with a full upper door, I had to either install a permanent filler pieces or leave the area above the door open, which would have...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    I remember when I moved out on my own and got married and we started buying furniture for our home. I always liked the solid wood pieces and could not stand the particle board stuff. It seems that I always gravitated toward oak. I loved oak! Interesting enough… I did not like anything cherry. I...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    A few years ago I designed an adjustable height workbench. I also incorporated a mobile base into the design. People who saw my bench REALLY liked it and I started offering plans for it on line. But, I have no idea how much people are interested in having a mobile base in their workbench! I...
