  1. Projects Saw till

    Been organizing my shop, and I no longer needed my old chisel till so I knocked out the existing rack within it, added a bar at the bottom and a board at the top, et voilá. Some day I’ll clean up those square corners and get a coat of oil on the new parts, but for now, my dovetail saws are off...
  2. Reclaimed End Grain Pine and Oak Wall Art

    This was going to be a bar top. I measured the existing bar and it was 64". I repeated 64", 64", 64", 64" in my head all the way to the shop. I laid out all of the material, glued them down, clamped them, framed the piece, grouted it, and finished it. I brought it into the house and set it...

  4. what can $8 worth of solid lumber get you...

    Furniture with the markings of a past life… I got this lumber from a recycle lumber yard. They pulled it from an old bank building in Sacramento, built around the 1930's. I found one really weather beaten plank which I think might have been from the building's facade. I chose this plank to be...
  5. 3 tiered plant holder thing

    Not a lot of pictures for this one as I am sure everyone has made something similar. Basically it's a modified version of the plant stand published in issue #177 of Wood Magazine others on this forum have followed. The structural frame is made of cedar 2×4's which I sanded and sealed, the shelf...
  6. Repurposed end tables into kitchen cart

    Here's a project I just recently finished. My wife and I picked up some old beat-up end tables for $20 from an old antique furniture store. We were planning to just refurbish the end tables, but we never got around to it. We also had a space in our kitchen between the fridge and the stove...
  7. first bandsaw box

    I made this jewelry box for my mother-in-law partly as a gift for Christmas and partly as a thank-you for pitching in with all my other family members to make the purchase of my new bandsaw possible. This was my fist bandsaw box ever and one of my first projects in general on the machine. The...
  8. Reclaimed Brickwork End Tables

    Completely reclaimed rough-cut barn wood, old trailer decking, and structural beams. The brick pattern top and the skirt are barn wood, the surface frame came from the trailer decking, and the legs are the beam. I quartered the beam and planed the legs to true 2"X2" and added a taper. The...
  9. Dog food storage/stand

    A friend of mine had me make this for his two Great Danes. They had been having problems eating because their bowls were to low. Its stands 26" high, and 29" wide. It needed to fit in with the rest of his house, very rustic/cowboy style home, so i went with the reclaimed/weathered look. I was...
  10. His and Her Desks

    I recently made desks for my wife and I. My wife's is pretty simple. The base is from an old sewing machine and I removed everything but sides and back. The top is the side from an old entertainment center that I refinished and then attached. Mine is simple construction and made from cedar...
  11. Hurricane Candle Holder from Dunnage

    We buy the glass tops to lamps and candles at the second hand stores for me to make bases. This is my first attempt at a "Hurricane" Candle Holder. I think the top is actually from a Kerosene Lantern, but it worked great for this. The wood is more Indian dontknow dunnage. This particular piece...
  12. Flat bowl from Dunnage

    I was in the shop yesterday trying to figure out how to fit 1000 square feet of shop equipment into a 750 square foot shop. I needed a brain break and decided to relax and play around on the lathe. I have a bunch of bowl blanks I made for the Christmas show season but didn't get turned, so I...
  13. Console Table With Re-purposed Legs

    Steel packing material off of an atlas car lift as legs with a 2×4 edge grain top. Flame birch side shelves to cover metal flanges.
  14. Mahogany Coffee Table with Re-Purposed Base

    My parents replaced their 50 year old laundry sink. The stand was a perfect base for a coffee table after a lot of cleanup. The top is mahogany and boiled linseed oil.
  15. Small bowl (4 inches) from dunnage

    Yep, yet another bowl design from the dunnage pile. I made a lager "inverted" bowl a couple weeks before Christmas and thought I'd try it out on a smaller scale. Indian dontknow wood, sanded to 320 grit, one coat of 2# shellac buffed off while wet, then about 3 or 4 applications of superglue on...
  16. Yankee Candle holder from Dunnage

    Trying to kill off the bowl blanks from Christmas…Deb was throwing away some old Yankee candles… They're all the same diameter jar so as I was taking them to the shop (for the wax of course) I thought….why not. More dunnage (Indian dontknow) sanded to 320 with a single coat of 2# shellac buffed...
  17. Ice Cream Scoops from Dunnage.

    I made a couple of scoops for Christmas presents and posted them to Pinterest To my (pleasant) surprise it generated a request for more. I have the process down to 30 minutes from grabbing a handle blank to ready to glue the scoop on. Pinterest a pretty nice site, it lets you price items...
  18. modern style plywood table

    I had a lot of plywood scraps from my last project and decided to build this table. The top is made from left over veneer. It took about a pint of glue to put it together and a lot of shaping and sanding. http://designagainstthegrain.com
  19. Master-at-Arms Coin Display

    A gentleman approached me at a craft show and asked if I could do a custom coin display for a friend. He brought me the coins and I inset them into a piece of walnut flooring I got from an elderly woodworker who was closing his shop. I've never done a custom coin shape other than round so I did...
  20. Mallet / Table Leg from Dunnage

    I must have missed the email about the great mallet exchange. But I have to show my dual purpose mallet. I turned it as a practice for making some oak table legs for a customer. The wood is more of the Indian dontknow I use for most of my work. This particular piece is incredibly dense...
