  1. Old Round Table Restoration

    Old Round Table Restoration I was given the task to restore and paint an old round table and put a mirror on the top. 1. First I remove all the brass hardware - fix all broken and misaligned parts and sand the table to remove the old varnish 2. I cover the newly exposed wood with two coats of...
  2. Round Kitchen Table

    First attempt at a round tabletop & pedestal base. Glued and screwed the top with pocket holes. Cut out with a router attached to a circle cutting jig. I'd really like to try a round column for the pedestal once I get a lathe. This all built with pine from Home Depot. Tools used...
  3. Simple Weathered Grey Side Table

    So I am making a wine barrel table that required a large donut shape. The inner circle that was left over was about 21" in diameter, so I bought some hairpin legs and stained in weathered grey. People seem to love this stain, and this project was just some scrap I had, and the hairpin legs I...
  4. First Try with Dremel Router

    Here is my first try at router woodworking. Used an old Dremel 400 XPR that I have used around the garage for grinding, cutting, and polishing. Thought I would give routering a try. The old raised grain weathered wood was quite the challenge for the 1/8" router bit. But, I think the jagged...
  5. Walnut end table

    Black walnut, finished just with boiled linseed oil and paste wax. Big mistake - because walnut is open-pored, the wax residue sticks in the pores and makes the finish a foggy gray color! LOL. Had to go back and wipe it down with mineral spirits, then I re-oiled it. Still not delighted with...
  6. Walnut round dining table

    Wifey wanted a round table for our kitchen so she found the way overpriced pottery barn version. Used the design for inspiration since I thought it looked nice as well. First time making anything big and round but it came out decent. I glued and pocket hole screwed the top which after doing...
  7. Round Kitchen Breakfast Table

    I created a round kitchen breakfast table to fit into a nook in our kitchen to replace an older table that was unstable. It was a fun project and took about a week to complete. Woods Curly Cherry top with a Cocobolo base Cherry pegs for accents and increased stability Finish Shellac wash coat...
  8. Baby Rattle

    I got this idea from delturcious. Thank you! The great thing about this project is that it can be made out of scrap. I glued two pieces of scrap Russian Birch plywood together and then cut them into blocks. I planes the pieces before gluing them together so that it looked like one piece of...
  9. How do you trim a half round window?

    This was a fun one ….. The large window (there were two the other pics didn't make it through) was 8'9" inside to inside and the small one was 44" inside to inside…very fun project in the middle of nowhere N.C>
  10. Custom Wishing Well Design

    I built this for our 20th anniversary, my wife has wanted one for awhile. So while she was away, I got busy, This is built from scratch from the ground up. It stands just over 8 ft tall, and is about 5 ft to the outer most points. The base is made out of green 2×4's cut to about 12 in each...
  11. Pizza cutting boards from cutoffs

    My wife requested that I make some round cutting boards for cutting pizza's after they come out of the oven. We transfer the whole pizzas to these boards from the metal pizza pan. These boards are easier on the pizza knife. The first board is made of a cutoff of birds eye maple and roasted...
  12. Rustic Hickory Ring Boxes

    Here are some pictures of the small, rustic hickory ring boxes I've started making. These were made from hickory that had been sitting up for a few years now, so the pieces are quite dry. I like using hickory for these because it holds the bark extremely well. The lid swivels to open and can...
  13. Hat Making Tool Custom Shape Crown Hat Block Set Long Oval Shape Cowboy Western Hats

    Custom Shaping of Long Oval Shaped Crown Blocks This is a project I did for a custom hat making shop in Texas. This is a "Crown Block", used to do the preliminary shaping of the felt hat body into the shape of a head. I make several other tools that are used for the shaping and cutting, etc...
  14. Cedar Patio Table

    This was one of my first projects and may have been a little ambitious at the time, but hey, if you don't push yourself I guess you'll never learn. Made from Western Cedar, finished with helmsman spar urethane exterior grade. I won't use a film forming finish like that again; it peeled badly...
  15. Round Dining Table

    65" diameter dining table Hickory and Jatoba, 8/4 Lacquer finish I grew up in a large and loud family with a round dining table, and am convinced that its size and shape contributed greatly to our family life… With no table head, everyone can be equally involved in conversation and rowdiness...
  16. Flattening a round

    Here is a block of maple I squared up with a broad hatchet. I've always been curious about making timbers with a broad axe. I decided to try it with a round of firewood that was cut about 6 months ago. It is slightly checked on the ends, but nothing too serious. I just started by making a few...
  17. My Round Shelf Unit, an Etagere

    Shelves are easy, hoops, not so much. I think this is technically an etagere, but my daughter makes fun of me every time I try to pronounce that, so I'm just calling this my round shelf. It's red oak throughout. The hoops are laminated strips, with a total diameter of 65 inches or so. The...
  18. Curved Cabinet

    After many months (weekends mostly) I've finally finished this round cabinet for a customer. I have to thank Les Hastings for his help and expertise in curved cabinets. His blog series here on LJ on curved doors made making the cabinet doors and drawers a lot easier as well as answering...
  19. Lazy Susan Cheese board

    This project was so much fun since I learned a few new skills, like making a round cutting board, a homemade circle jig and how to install a swivel plate for a Lazy Susan. I used maple, cherry and walnut for the cutting board that I glued up in 2 parts so I could run them through my planer...
  20. planes, planes, and more planes

    He last few weeks I've been on sort of a plane rush. It started with moulding planes and has moved extensively to rabbet planes. I have a no.6 hollow and round, a no.16 round, and 4 or 5 rabbet planes. So far all of my planes use blades hacksawed out of old table saw blades. They work quite...
