  1. Projects In Progress
    I was recently asked if I could restore this table that had sentimental value. The table is approximately 40 years old. It was one of those you don’t want to say no, but …can it really be saved? After taking pictures and marking everything with tape I completely took it apart and saved...
  2. Rustic Cabin

    I am not sure if this falls under the woodworking projects umbrella but… it involved a ton of wood and it was definitely work. My Dad and I have been building this hunting cabin for quite some time. The pine trees that were used for the porch columns, rafters, ridge poles and main beam were...
  3. Millers Falls 77 -Hand Drill Refurbish

    I refurbished this Millers Falls No 77 Hand Drill that used to belong to my Dad. This one dates back to 1927-31. I've had it for years, but only started using it within the past few years as I've gone more and more unplugged. It's handle was too small and wobbled. Aside from a good cleaning...
  4. Grizzly 1023 Switch Relocate and Safety Stop

    About a year ago I purchased a used Grizzly 1023 tablesaw which had been poorly maintained. The previous owner had sawed mostly pine and must never have cleaned it. All the parts were caked hard with pitch and sawdust and the entire base was packed full of sawdust. I spent many hours cleaning...
  5. Improv Fir Step Stool

    This project is an attempt to use up material (fir) and supplies (Minwax Polyshades) I have on hand. At my wife's request, I made a project that has some use around the house; a step stool. The step stool also doubles as a sitting bench for my daughter's activity table, which is our old coffee...
  6. Old Arn Drill Press

    I'd been looking to upgrade my dill press for a while now. I had a cheap Chiwanese benchtop unit that drilled holes, that's about all I can say for it. This unit came up on CL. I called on a Saturday morning and went to look at it that afternoon. The motor bearings sounded perfect but the quill...
  7. Refurbished Desk

    July, 2018 - This project was more involved than I thought it would be when a friend dropped it off for a little restoration work. This started in May and finished in July. Glad it's done! LOL 1) First challenge was the discovery of two missing toes on the feet (photo 2). So I carved two...
  8. Cedar Chest

    I found an old cedar chest that was sitting in my great, great grandfather's garage when we were cleaning his house after he passed away. From what history my family knew of it, it was at least 100 years old, and may have come across the ocean when some of the family migrated from over seas. It...
  9. Wooden Ruler

    My lovely wife is a teacher and I wanted to make her a going back to school present. I drew A LOT of inspiration from http://lumberjocks.com/projects/98209 . Thanks to jordanp for the idea. I am not too confident with the woodburner so I decided to not include the numbers above the hashmarks...
  10. New axe handle for daughter

    Well our daughter called me one day and said " Daddy can you make me an axe? Or clean up an old one for me?" She had joined several campfires / been camping and ended up helping the boys build the fires. One boy even commented how she had bested another boy in a kindling splitting...
  11. Hickory Knob to keep Porter-Cable Scroll saw running

    I bought my Porter-Cable scroll saw model PDB370SS back in 2012 and have put quite a few hours on it. A few months ago, I noticed the plastic knob you turn to hold the tilting table in place no longer worked. It was irritating because if you slightly push on the right hand side of the table...
  12. "Goodnite, Sweetheart, Goodnite"

    I had received an email from my best friend containing some sad news about his father-in-law and a special request. Gene, or as we knew him Geno, had passed on and the family wanted to know if I would design his final resting place. Since this is a family who I love, and Geno was a man who I...
  13. Brace refurbish

    There's a long-term project I've been working on for a while now - workbench But some minor stuff goes on too, and I used time of this short project to rethink some details of my workbench build. First things first: I already have two braces. First is the "classic" one: two-jaw chuck...
  14. Novelty Picture Frames

    I made these a couple of years ago for a friend. He needed some 11×11 inch picture frames to put these funny calendar pics into and told me not to make them too "fancy". They're made of pine scraps that I distressed before staining and finishing with poly. I used dark walnut on the first one...
  15. Refurbed Computer Desk

    I got this typical office computer desk 10 years ago from my brother-in-law - his company was buying new equipment and giving away the old. I used it that way several years, but when my son took wood shop in high school about 3 years ago, I had him make the wood panels to replace the formica...
  16. Grand Prizes for Running Event

    A few weeks ago I was approached by an ex-coworker of mine who is also in charge of a rather large running event held locally in Howard County, Maryland. He was kind of depressed with the standard awards that were given out at these events and asked me if we could work together to come up with...

  19. Oak School Desk

    This is an old oak school desk that my wife picked up for a couple bucks at a consignment sale. It was painted and had a piece of formica on the desk part. I scraped away all the paint and sanded it up to 600 grit sand paper. Then it was stained with English Chestnut stain and sealed with...
