  5. First table from oak struck by lightening

    Been woodworking for a couple years now, this was my first big project. The wife and I recently built a house, in the land clearing process I spotted a big red oak. I was planning on building my workshop beside it to block the hot South Carolina summer sun and a play area for my 2 year old...
  6. Side Table, White Oak and Cherry

    I've long needed a side table for the recliner, and finally developed a design I was happy with.

  13. Round Military Shadow Box Table

    Hey Fellow Lumber Jocks and Guests. This is my latest creation I made for a SMSgt who is retiring. She contacted me through this site. It proved to be quite a challenge, but the time and effort was worth it. The top and shelf is made from birch plywood; the legs are made by 3×3 poplar...
  14. Jewellery box in cherry and walnut

    Yes, it's another box from that English bloke. I've pushed the boat out a bit with this one and fitted it with a quadrant hinge to hold the lid back and a lock. As stated, the main construction is in cherry with a walnut inset lid and plinth. The tray and interior dividers are mahogany from the...

I made the middle post 2 3/4" instead of 3" since my local lumberyard thickest...
  18. Inlay Chess Board

    Hi Everybody, this is my first post on LJ. I`ve made the chessboard a while ago with the plan, at the time, to just frame it with a nice wood and use it as a regular board to teach my children the game. I then later decided to add some legs so you can sit at the couch when playing, that's when...

  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I want to build a round table, small diameter 36 to 48 inches max. I planned on laminating, but I am open to any wood suggestions. What I can't find out, is how to combat cupping in the design stage, like how they use breadboard ends on a rectanglur farmers table. I imagine Z clips or the...
