  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I’ve got a project where I’d like to do a bunch (dozens) of small rosettes in the surface of a board. I can carve them by hand, but given how many I need to do, and having seen the large rosette router bits in the latest Infinity Tools catalog, my brain started working… I was wondering if...
  2. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I got this crazy idea. I'm thinking of using a router to drill 55 dog holes in a piece of 2' X 4' X 3/4" thick MDF. I'd be using a 3/4" straight bit and the lowest speed my Festool 1400 will allow. Stupid? Asking for trouble? Has anyone done this? I know if I use a Forstner bit & portable drill...
  3. Veneer class project

    8 piece match veneer project for class at Palomar college. It is amazing the designs that some figured wood can produce. My first piece to be sold at a fund raising auction.
  4. Bookcase/Gate for Wide Opening Between Rooms

    We have a wide opening between the kitchen area and family room in our home. Sometimes we want our dogs to stay in one of those areas. When we moved in a few years ago we put in a wide baby gate but the dogs finally wiped it out trying to go through the narrow opening side by side too many...
  5. Industrial Modern Table - Sweet Gum w/ Brass Accents

    Hey Guys, I recently finished this Industrial Modern table with a Sweetgum top and Modern Brass/Gold accents on the steel table frame. I used the Festool Domino to do "Cheater" breadboard ends. The finish is General Finishes Arm R Seal Oil and Poly, love that stuff. I am also going to be...
  6. Sofa Table

    The basic router class that I was teaching that day had just finished and I was perusing a pallet of maple boards at Johnson's Lumber. http://www.theworkbench.com/ The lumber was setting off to one side of the warehouse, waiting to be loaded into the storage rack. I thought that this would be...
  7. Upgraded Router Table

    Since in small shops like mine storage and work surfaces are always an issue, I came up with a great solution to store my growing collection of router bits, to organize workpieces while milling them at the router table and to get more surface area when changing cutters. As shown on the...
  8. Finished Router Bit Box

    Hello Everyone. I've been really wanting to use up a last little piece of this birdseye maple I had but it was really small. I decided to make this small router but box that would hold the 11 bits I use most. I posted this box after I stained it looking for advise/help and several people...
  9. Router Bit Storage

    This is my first project in my new shop. I have always loved woodworking, and I have FINALLY been able to aquire some basic used tools (tablesaw, bandsaw, jointer, benchtop router table, and a drill press) that I've refurbished into an efficient shop. Funny thing is though, after I aquired the...
  10. Bathroom Cabinet

    Wanted a cabinet in the bathroom that sat above the tank of the toilet…..Got a stash of Ash wood, made some fancy Raised Panel door…..Frames for the doors are a mitered half lap. 2 small wooden knobs serve as the door handles…magnetic catches inside hold the door shut ( so I won't bang my...
  11. Saw blade/Table saw stand

    This is a new stand I made for my table saw. The casters on the old one didn't work anymore so I made a new out of 3/4" Particle board that I got from my local store (Menards) for $2 and casters to move more easily. The Saw blade cabinet was made out of scrap 3/4" oak plywood and scrap 1/4"...
  12. Retirement Shadow Box with case

    I started this project months before I retired. It was supposed to be a retirement gift to another retiring naval officer. Let's just say he didn't earn my respect so, I kept the box and made it my own! It's Walnut and has Maple trim that I salvaged from Ike's HQ in London (I was stationed at...
  13. Speaker Stands

    My second real woodworking projects … speaker stands built from padauk and finished with Tung Oil/Vanish blend. This wood is beautiful to look at but the red dust gets everywhere. Also needs to be finished quickly or it ages into a very ugly grey/brown color. Loose mortise and tenon joinery...
  14. Golf Ball in Post

    Ok, I admit that I like to make unique items, so here's another one. The wood is from a section of a cedar post, and that is a real golf ball (not a sponge fake). I have tried to show all sides of the "cube" as close up as my camera will permit for the photos. Enjoy. p.s. - I see that there...
  15. Router Cradle - Bit Changes Made EASY!

    First, I must give Kudos to Jawhorse for this idea. He said that he borrowed it from somewhere else, but this was the first time I had seen this; and if it weren't for his post, I'd still be struggling with bit changes. Thanks for the Idea! See Jawhorse 's router cradle here...
  16. Antigua

    My wife absolutely fell in love with this piece. When I told her I named it "Antigua", she informed me I had better not sell this one. I am pleased with the coloration; it brings back fond memories of the Caribbean waters of Antigua where we honeymooned. The hollow form vase is turned from end...
  17. Pizza Peel - Groomsman/Matron of Honor Wedding Present

    Backstory: This year, my entire family had the honor of being in the wedding party of two of our closest friends. I was a groomsman for someone who was in a bible study I led for many years, my wife the matron of honor for one of her closest friends in our church, and our 1.5 year old daughter...
  18. B-52 Tail flash plaque

    Made a B-52 Tail flash for a going away plaque. I laser etched the tail marking and filled in with water color paint then two coats of poly.
  19. Router bit storage idea

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who has thought of using foam to store router bits. Decided I'd share just in case some didn't know. I built an addition to my Kreg router table a while back adding lower cabinets and drawers. Basically it's the plan found on Kreg's website. The four small drawers...
