  1. Dining room piano windows

    These are two piano windows from my dining room. Last summer I had the exterior windows replaced while I was getting new stucco on my house, and I thought that I should clean up the interior windows too. I started by stripping the majority of the paint off the windows and inspecting them...
  2. Diamond Willow + Antler Tee Handle Cane #2

    I don't think this is really a true tee handle cane. I left enough antler at the rear of the handle so the whole hand can grasp the handle without needing to hook the index finger in front of the shaft. But I was hoping to keep the option open to still use this cane as a tee handle by leaving a...
  3. Pecan Slab Table with Steel Powder Coated Base

    Here is a slab table commissioned by a restaurant in Fort Worth Texas. It was a challenge to say the least. For the size table they spec'ed the slabs were running around $6,000 (that's with my discount) for the slab alone. The owner didn't have it in the budget so I found a small saw mill...

  5. Cane w/ Carved Leaves

    I hand carved the leaves onto this cane while on a camping trip up north. I try to use found wood in my canes and walking sticks. With any luck the wood has been dead for some time, saving me the trouble of having to wait around for the wood to dry. This was a back alley find [some of the best...
  6. Shopsmith 10ER After

  9. Heart Filigree Designs

    I order and received this packet from Keith Fenton at Shelia Landry Designs last night. I wanted to try out my new say. The instructions said that some people might want to enlarge the pattern for ease of cutting. I just love a challenge. So I made on normal size and on half-size of the original...

  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey guys, I am hunting down a very specific band saw that I don't believe is in production any more, but in order to find it I need to know if it even exists and how long it has been out of production. I am looking for a bandsaw that takes an 82" blade, I am under the impression that it is was...

    Hey all! I've been struggling with a dilemma for a few weeks now and would really appreciate suggestions and thoughts from other woodworkers. I'm building another workbench out of cedar that is going to be permanently outdoors. I live in a northern climate, so I expect to protect the bench as...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    Hello all. I am doing a large car port (30×30) for a customer and they do not want copper treated lumber. The structure will not be touching the ground. Steel footings in concrete keep it up 12 inches off the ground. The vertical posts and rafters (glued composite beams made from 4×4 or 2×4 or...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    About a year ago, Stephanie cut down a small tree with somekind of vine wrapped around it. The plan was to make it into a cat tree, but I ended up using it to make business card holders and wine balancers…and I may use a longer piece to do repairs to the front porch (more about in a moment). My...
  16. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Hi guys - I realize this isn't exactly what most of us think of when we think of woodworking, but I've always gotten good advice here, so I figured I'd ask. I moved into a home about a year ago, and have been doing all the obligatory fix-ups. Next on the list is fixing some minor rot at the...
  17. Wood & Lumber
    I purchased some air-dried lumber from a local lumber guy, walnut slabs. I noticed that the sapwood on the edge (1 or so inches thick) was dry rotted. I can break off a bit by hand, with some force. I planed a bit of the heartwood and it looks great. In contrast, I've purchased kiln dried lumber...
  18. Wood & Lumber
    This board of hard maple seems to have a brown-colored core, judging by the annual rings. Is this bark inclusion or rot? The face grain of the brown patch has cracks along the grain visible on the second photo. If this is rot then some stabilization and extra sealng might be necessary. Thank, h.
