  2. Radiator Cover

    Using 95% recycle materials I recently finished this radiator cover for my bathroom. The center panel is both punched tin and painted and has a Cast Iron replica of the Hatteras light house setting in front of it. The entire frame and top were made from boards recycled from a 1950's style...

  4. Rolling Room Divider - recycled wood

    This is a giant storage unit I just finished. I made it because I needed a place to put vanity items like hairdryer and lotions etc. I had a big seven foot bookcase and thought that I could mount a full length mirror on the back of it. Then I imagined the whole thing built on top of a heavy...
  5. Shelf for my Daughter

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] After replacing a broken stair tread in our house which we had lived with for around 20 years, my daughter grabbed the old tread before I could even decide if I wanted to re-use it somewhere or throw it away. A few moths later she asked if I could make a small shelf...
  6. Diy Picture Frames Made From Reclaimed Pallet Wood

    I chose to build these frames from pallet wood to finish my Mini-Series on using reclaimed wood from pallets. Pallets can be an excellent source of free materials for woodworkers at any skill level! I've done several different types of projects from pallets and this is just one example of the...
  7. Wrap-around Box - My First Veneering Torture

    The original name: POINT TO POINT as in my blog series on how I designed and up to final work. Take a time to back track on it if you have not followed it. Quite interesting because the posts were fresh from the time I made it till I finished. This is made of veneers that are leftovers and I...
  8. Leaf Dining Chair

    Sorry but have not been posting for awhile. Have taken up golf and find that it is taking most of my time. Here in the Philippines, I can play all year round. Sorry to hear about the brutally cold weather in the US and extremely hot weather in Australia. I think I will stay here. This is my...

  11. Ian's box

    A friend and his wife helped us with our baby's naming ceremony. I made them this box as a thank you. It was also a good try out for the then new Record 71 router plane that I'd bought from e-bay; this is now one of my favourite tools - really satisfying to use. The sides are some rather nice...
  12. V-drum Sander

    V-Drum Sander I received some recycled wood from my father in law …these were pre casting forms from Caterpillar Tractor Co. _ I disassembled a couple of sets then went about finding a project for them. Somewhere along the way I saw a need for a home made sander, after lots of web research I...
  13. Driveway fence and gate

    Wanted a fence across my driveway for privacy, with a person size gate, and the ability to use the whole width of the driveway if needed. Came up an idea to build a couple of sections on plastic furniture dollies so they could be moved when needed. To ensure that the sections don't tip over, I...
  14. Small miter box bench

    I bought a miter box from another LJ a while back, and needed a place to set it up, since my main workbench is a bit… chaotic most of the time. I also had scored four 92 inch long 4×6s from a neighbor, who had planned to use them as the corners of a pergola he never got started on. First step...

  16. Cowboy Cooler

    I built this "Cowboy Cooler" for my sister and her husband for Christmas 2009. I first saw one of these as a mass produced unit at a local sporting good store. I thought it was a really neat item, but way overpriced. After that, I started seeing them pop up at road-side vendors and flea...
  17. Military medals Display Case

    My dad is a Vietnam veteran who never misses an opportunity to let other soldiers know they are appreciated. I wanted to return that and let him know that he and his service was appreciated.

    These are pictures of a table I made using North American Cherry (Prunus serotina). The top is a single wide slab with "live" edges. The table also incorporates a "running board" which serves as a sort of low shelf about 5 inches off the ground on which to pile books and other junk on...
  19. Garden Bench

    I rebuilt my deck this summer and couldn't stand the thought of trashing the redwood railing. this bench was the result. I chose this project so as to give me more practice with mortice and tenons. The bench is finished with Superdeck Natural deck stain. The last picture shows the material I...
  20. Birdhouse - Inspired by extreme birdhouse

    After looking at the birdhouses on extreme birdhouses I thought I would give it a try. The wood came from a pallet that was in the garbage. My son and I spent an afternoon salvaging the wood. There seems to be alot of those around so we won't have a shortage. This was fun to build now I have...
