  7. Resawing Tulipwood Log

    So I normally only post actual projects, but I really got a kick out of the fact that I didn't screw this up. I got a hold of a tulipwood log, cut it in half, then jointed the exposed side. Took that flat side against my resaw fence and got 4 nice 4/4 pieces about 38" long and 6-7" wide...
  8. Resaw fence and table for Bandsaw

    Hello again! So here is another (not so exciting to look at but useful) shop upgrade. I recently came across some free cherry and walnut logs.

  9. My first handcut dovetails!

    Aren't they cute? I found a nice straight oak board, with just one ugly knot and otherwise pretty nice grain, at one of the local home improvement stores, which I intend to use for exercises and making tools. First exercise was to resaw a piece of it from 20mm to half that, to test if I'm...

  14. Cornhole Boards (again)

    I posted a set of boards I just finished and realized I never posted these ones before. Basically the same plans, but I used Sandi-ply Plywood as it is a little lighter, making it easier to carry. The "Gentlemen of Fortune" was the name of my friends bar who passed away 3 years ago now. in...

We did use compression methods to ensure the...
