  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Last year, the county cut down a tree near my house and the guys were nice enough to leave me a few sections of the trunk. I'm pretty sure it was a birch tree, if that has anything to do with this. Last weekend, I chainsawwed it up into sections that can fit through my bandsaw. I ended up with...
  2. Journal Paul Sellers Box, Rounded Sides, Maple

    Lumber Run...had a 1 x 6 x 6'5" plank to make a Project from. Paul Sellers' Masterclasses provided a downloadable set of plans ( to go with a video series of How-to build it) Lid will be sawn off after the box has been glued up. There is also a plan on how to join the curved corners.. But...
  3. Blogs
    Lumber Run had a couple Maple 1 x 6 planks....about 8bft worth...thought about building a box project from Paul Sellers Masterclasses series...there was even a video how-to by him. The box in the Project? Is this one. I downloaded the 3 page set of plans a while back...even made one out of...
  4. Bridle kerfing plane

    This is a kerfing plane which is used to cut a kerf around the perimeter of a board which then makes a nice guide for resawing with my frame saw I used my old plow plane as a model, see the last photo. It had decoration on the arms, fence and arm supports so I tried to duplicate that on my...
  5. FW Garden Chair -- MOVED TO BLOG, NOT A FINISHED PROJECT

    After a couple other projects, finally getting around to building 8 of the Garden Chair's from FW magazine. They will be the matching set around the fire table I built earlier. Same wood, African Mahogany I just love this chair! Getting the forms built was pretty straight forward. I...
  6. Shaker Side Table in Black Walnut

    This is a shaker-inspired side table that I made using plans from WoodWorker's Journal April '07. This is my second wood project. There are some techniques from the first project that I'd like to work on as well as trying out new tools and techniques that I've seen along the way. New...
  7. *********************************** RESAW RIG

    *********************************** Resaw This is my '*********************************** Resaw' rig. I sometimes need stock wider than my bandsaw can produce by resawing for things like intarsia work, I came up with this rig. It is a sort of bow saw, except the blade is set at 90 degrees to the frame. Using it is a little labor intensive, but it...
  8. Pocket & Desk Business Card Case (Part 2) - Removing marks & holding methods

    I resaw boards whenever I can and whenever it's safe to do so on the tablesaw. Sometimes, machine (burn) marks are left and need to be removed. The best tool to do it is not the sander but the handplane (I usually use a LAJ, followed by a smoother where needed). The shop was warm today; I spent...
  9. Large Frame Saw

    I build a frame saw using the 48"x4" kit from Blackburn Tools. The frame is made from a chunk of storm-fell maple. I left the bridle joints on the frame unglued, the tension in the blade will hold it together. The handles and stretchers are still rough because I wanted to make a few test cuts...
  10. Quarter sawn cedar planter & bench

    Here's the challenge: Run of the mill materials. I decided to build this project entirely from big-box store construction lumber. Every stick comes from the local Lowe's (not my usual supplier). I choose cedar for its outdoor durability, but I sought an upscale appearance. After an intense...
  11. ReSaw Sled for Bandsaw

    Well, after 4yr in WW I finally got talked into building a resaw sled for my 14in Rikon 10-325 bandsaw. I don't know why I took so long and/or avoided going this route…hmm… All I can say is that the jig is very easy to build and mine took less than two 4ft sticks of T-track and two T-track...
  12. Wooden Hair Clips

    First, I started by re-sawing some cutoffs and turning blocks I had around the shop. This was mulberry, walnut, sycamore, pine and some dogwood. I passed each piece through the planer to give it a good gluing surface. Then arranged the pieces and glued them together. After the glue dried I...
  13. Winch for Bandsaw Lumbermill Sled

    This manual winch provides the ability to slowly and carefully feed the log on the bandsaw lumbermill sled into the blade. Each revolution of the winch moves the sled approximately 3". The winch, when combined with a 4 pulley block and tackle setup cuts the workload by a factor of about 12...
  14. Old desk becomes kitchen table

    My brother-in-law came across this old desk and wondered if I could turn it into a kitchen table for him. I got rid of the old top and added a nice QSWO top with breadboard ends. I made two benches in the design he was looking for to match. Pretty happy with how it turned out!
  15. Adjustable Bandsaw Lumbermill Sled

    This band saw sled has 7' infeed and outfeed tables that slide out from the bandsaw to accommodate wider logs. The glides are simple sliding dovetail joints made out of 3/4" plywood with one side fastened to the bandsaw and the other piece fastened to the feed tables. The sled adjusts to any...
  16. Butcher block cabinet

    I completed this butcher block cabinet about 2 weeks ago, and got the inspiration from 2 sources - the wood whisperer (end grain cutting boards) and David Marks' butcher block table featured in one of his DIY woodworks episodes. The top is larger than David's design; it's about 3 feet wide by 2...
  17. Gancalo Alves/Walnut Nesting Tables

    Here are a couple of nesting tables with floating tops (at least my version of floating tops). I got the idea for the frames from EternalDesign . Incidentally, these tables are a Christmas present for my wife. We recently moved into a new home and don't have much in the way of furniture for...
  18. Butterfly Mesquite

    This is a butterfly I made out of a piece of Mesquite wood. The butterfly wings are about 8-9 inches long. The wood was about the size of a fireplace log so I put it on the bandsaw and started slicing to see what I might find. After a few slices I could see what looked like a butterfly wing...
  19. Keepsake Box, Maple & Walnut

    Another box from the book, "Box-Making Basics" by David Freedman. I liked this box from the first moment I saw it but it took me a while to feel comfortable with my level of box-making to tackle it. The body is maple and the top is a nicely figured walnut which you really can't see from the...
  20. Bandsaw featherboards

    Just a quick featherboard based on one I saw that James E McIntyre made. The flexible bit is a squeegee from Amazon that someone recommended to me. That's 4 inches long, but there are 6 inch ones if you're resawing bigger stuff. Pretty quick build. I cut the groove on the table saw (1/4 and...
