  1. Pecky Cypress Goodness

    I needed some storage space for tools and such that I don't use that often. So I decided to build some cabinets. I'm a poor bastard so I salvaged some plywood, drawers, and slides from some old cabinets that were demo'd, and thrown in a trash pile on a job I worked on. Brought it home. So I...
  2. Custom XL Sliding Barn Door

    Here's a massive sliding barn door I recently made for a customer. This thing weighs about 400-500 lbs. and is made of steel, birch plywood, and grey hemlock siding from our lot. It measures 64" wide and 105" tall and slides over into a recess the customer had built into the room. We sprayed the...
  3. Toy Box from pallets

    A friend wanted a Toy Box for his son and asked me to make one. This is made of reclaimed pallet wood slimmed to 3 inch slats and sanded for a while using my random orbital. The basic dimensions are W 24in x H 17 x D 12 in. Since this was for a little one any rough nail holes I used a...
  4. Fireplace February 2007

    My apartment had a fireplace that was simply boxed out in drywall. The fireplace was really undersized, which I loved because it actually heated the entire apartment, but a small amount of soot would travel up the wall and leave a pretty nasty stain. My landlord gave me a rotten mantle that...
  5. Reclaimed Cedar Lifeguard Chairs

    I found this lumber on craigslist. The house was built with cedar fascia boards and when they rebuilt the house the owner didn't want to toss the wood. Thank God.. Some of the wood has tunnels from carpenter bees which looks awesome. I epoxied the feet and water sealed the chairs. Believe...
  6. Reclaimed pallet wood cutting board (mostly white and red oak)

    The series for this project - here is quite in-depth, so I won't recreate it here. I'll just sum up… I got a stack of slats from a pallet from a local bearing shop all cut up nicely in a stack of 14"-16" pieces. Sorting them, I found many that appeared to be kinds of oak. I ran these over the...
  7. Black and White Ebony Pistol Grips

    I havent made anything in the shop for a while so I went out and whipped these pistol grips up. They are cut from a turning blank, I book matched them so they look the same on both sides. They are pretty simple, I first cut the outline on the band saw, then drilled the holes which turned out to...
  8. book shelf from a small 1931 hobby lathe

    We sort of have a Wood-Craft/Bohemian/Bookworm thing going for our home decor - see in background of pics above. I recently made a bookshelf from a small 1931 cast-iron hobby lathe and a hunk of reclaimed barn/house beam from here in Toulouse. I cleaned both the beam section and lathe up a...
  9. 35 Degree Trestle Table, Pine & Oak Pier/Pallet Reclaim

    First things first, this was never going to be a table. I saw a rifle display on LJ a few months back. The top of this table was going to be just that. I started that in Sept '13. It was going to be a Christmas gift for a friend who retired from the Navy the same time I did, but his wife...
  10. Recylced wood projects, Bench Swing, Arbor, Draw Knife Sheaths

    Here are some projects where I used recycled cedar. The lumber came from my kids playground that I have built about 13 years ago. It has been moved once when we moved to our new house. I think I have pay about $700 at the time for the new timber from the hardware store. Now my boy is 17 and...
  11. Violin display stand

    I've had thoughts of making one of these for some time, probably since I made the guitar stand for my wife. The stand could be used to simply display a violin or to keep one handy for frequent practice sessions. Regardless, a fiddle is safest when ensconced in its case. The wood I used may be...
  12. Vintage pad saw back to life (fanatic...)

    Vintage pad saw back to life Yes you are allowed to call me fanatic… I have had the luck to become the owner of some old pad saws, but could not get some blades, and would like to use one in my 'out the house' toolbox, so I would love to give it more than one type of blade… For those who do...
  13. Reclaimed Red Oak Countertop

    Here's a project where we wanted to make the old wood look new. We have a pile of red oak I've been making countertops and tables from. Here I laminated a bunch of 3/4×2" strips together to create a long grain butcher block countertop. It sure is nice having a widebelt sander for projects like...
  14. Pinch an Inch - Puzzle Box

    I just can't resist the urge to utilize a couple of Yardsticks and turn them into an awesome little puzzle box! To allow for adhesion between parts the back side of the ruler has been planned to a clean and glueable surface. This one is the first in a series of 10 Yardstick designs. This is...
  15. Recycled desk.

    New from Eternal. The client just renovated their home, but wanted something built out of salvaged wood. The desk was designed and built to bring back some of the original character into the new contemporary home. These pictures show the project from start to finish. The main panel that makes...
  16. Push Block with ... sole

    Offered up for your review is a push block I am making for my brother. I first saw a version of this in "Woodsmith eTips", an e-mail I get from Woodsmith Magazine. http://www.woodsmithtips.com/2011/10/20/?utm_source=WoodsmithTips&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=5224 In picture one you will see...
  17. Broken Molding Plane into key holder

    Before you all start collecting scrap so you can roast me alive for desecrating a beautiful tool, the molding plane pictured here was split and has warped at the split beyond repair. It was/is a 1860s-ish Gleave #8 round. There was no bringing it back from the dead, so I cleaned it up, applied...
  18. Kingsized Headboard from re-purposed materials

    My wife asked me to build a headboard for our king size bed as part of her Christmas list. We love shopping at our local Habitat For Humanity Resale shop and it was there that I found a stack of small (approximately 9" x 12") cabinet doors. I was only able to find 21 total panels that were in...
  19. Reclaimed Cutting Board #4 (January 2013)

    What started out as a box mattress is now a cutting board. If you have nothing better to do for the next 25 minutes you can watch the entire build here on my LumberJocks blog.
  20. Reclaimed Oak Dining Table

    It's reclaimed oak from a tobacco barn in North Carolina. Purchased by a guy who took it apart and brought it down to Jacksonville, FL. He sold the lumber years later to a guy who sold it to me. haha It's the hardest oak I've ever worked with and I made the huge mistake of trying to plane it...
