  1. Never-Again Hammer

    Made this out of spalted maple that was right on the edge of workability. Had it about 2/3 the way done--sanding/shaping--and it BLEW apart while I was using a file on it. I took a pic, closed the shop, and went inside for the night! LOL This morning, I glued it back together and finished it...
  2. Orchid #1 Miter and Splined Shaped Box

    This is a mitered and splined box of poplar, cedar and mesquite. It is number 17 in my 2019 Box Build. This one is a bit of a hodge podge of a box. I originally did the intarsia orchid for box number 16, my Soft Dovetail Box, but I didn't plan it out well and the orchid was orginally...
  3. Some Chisel Handles

    I must admit a sickness to my fellow woodworkers, I'm addicted to rescuing socket chisels, refurbishing them and putting them back to work as their are meant to be. There is a second hand tool store here in Tucson that calls to me during my waking hours as well as I sleep. I must visit and...
  4. Beer tankard

    For the beer swap this year, I had decided to build a tankard. I'd seen tankards in Woodworking in Estonia and thought "how hard could it be?" That usually leads to an interesting build. I had a chunk of crab apple from a tree from my yard. It came down four years ago, and a friend had...
  5. Saw cabinet

    I've needed a place to store my saws for a while now. After wrapping up the box swap, I got out some pine I had and started building another box, this one a little bigger. I've gotten quicker at preparing lumber with hand tools. The pine had a little cup to it, so some quick traversing with the...
  6. Four Footed & Lidded Ash and Sapele Vessel

    Almost another piece in the Three Legged Dog Series but this ash vessel has four feet. It is turned from ash and also has three piths/branches running through it. It is a very straight forward piece and the ash cut very easily. The sapele lid is topped with a small cap of spalted ash which in...
  7. Bandsaw box #15

    New design, tough to spray the lacquer in some spots.
  8. It's that time of year again

    These boxes were requested by my wife. I made some last year and she really liked them, so here they are again. the one on the left is curly maple and cherry, and the one on the right in the first pic is cherry and pallet wood. I don't have any idea what kind of wood it is, but I know what it...
  9. Some turning projects...

    The first one: a mallet made out of purpleheart and hard maple. The second: Some new handles for two rasps of Smoked Oak. And the third: a baseball batt made out of Hornbean. All of the projects are finished with a couple of layers Danish Oil. Greetings!

    New? Used? You decide. Have you ever gotten the feeling that if only you'd known more at the start of something, you'd have saved yourself a whole lot of time, effort, and money? Maybe it's just the learning process, but there are a few things I wish I'd known ahead of time before I began...

    History, Templates and the Initial Leg Shaping http://blip.tv/play/h%2BIrgvyZCQA.html?p=1http://a.blip.tv/api.swf#h+IrgvyZCQA After all of the support I received during our recent website troubles, I knew I had to come up with a special way of saying thank you. I considered sending out cards...

    Dovetail Stool: Joinery and Leg Detail In this second part of the dovetail stool I go over how I assemble the cross braces, touch on the dovetails attaching the legs and tops (lost some footage) and also go over making the leg detail using files and rasps. Hit that thumbs up, comment, and...

  14. Hand Tools
    I plan on making some wooden hinges and want to round over the edges of the hinge. I think I need needle files or needle rasps. I know that I need a flat curved skinny file of some sort. I've been looking all over but can't find the answer. Can someone just give me the quick version of the...
