  1. Gravity Wine Bottle Holders

    Just some quick and easy Christmas gifts for the family. Saw variations of these on LJ's and thought I'd try it. Found the 45 degree angle many specified was a little too slanted for my taste, plus the bottle came out almost horizontal when I've been told by some of my wine loving in-laws the...
  2. Juniper Bowl

    Started out like this: Went through a series of different carving shaping tools to get to this: And, finally, to get to this: The measurements are approximate: Length = 18 inches Width = 12 inches Height on the highest side = 6 inches It was finished using a new process (new to me, at...
  3. Rock Salt Lamp Stand

    It's been awhile since I last posted mainly because I've been laid up with back and knee issues thanks to my 130 lb puppy that took me for a ride while I was holding his leash to keep him from jumping up on and knocking over a friend he was very happy to see. Anyway, my sister asked me to make...
  4. Three Juniper Bowls

    Once upon a time, I had a log….a juniper log, to be exact. Slicing out the center on a bandsaw sawmill for a fireplace mantle left a lot of waste, or at least what I thought was going to be waste. The log was 11 feet long. That left two slices off the top and bottom of the center piece that...
  5. Beetle Kill Pine Bowl with Resin Root Stand

    This one took me a lot longer to finish than I thought it would. Even though I'm really liking the way this one turned out, beetle kill pine isn't necessarily the easiest wood to work with sometimes. It can be both too dry and too wet (for those who've worked with this kind of wood, you know...
  6. Another slab of bacon

    I was recently asked to make a bowl for the lady in the photo like the one I'd made for my wife. It's so fascinating to me to see how pieces from two different trees of the same species can have such different color even when finished the same way. Anyway, this "slab of bacon" as a fellow LJ'er...
  7. Plane with a router

    I recently purchased a 3 in thick maple butcher block table at auction. The table is 30" wide over 6' long and way too heavy for my drum sander and too wide for my planer. My solution was to scab on a couple of 2×4s to my router planer sled I built to surface cutting boards (before I built a...
  8. Curly cherry live edge dining table - AllWoodJoinery

    A slide show about the build: I've shared my story and my concept in my bed post. This table is the second piece. As I see I rather build a piece of furniture around a beautiful piece of wood… This time no choco locust but a majestic piece of curly cherry. 18-20 inches wide and 12 feet long...
  9. Router Sled

    This project came to a head after I realized the importance of using a Table Saw vs a Miter Saw to make an end grain cutting board. I was set out to create my first end grain cutting board after seeing everyone's awesome creations and after a monumental failure cutting my first glue up into 1...
  10. Rock Salt Lamp Stand

    Y'know those Himalayan salt lamps that are not only popular, but also are purported to have healing/restorative qualities? Most of the ones I've seen are just the rock salt without a stand. As usual, my thoughts went almost immediately to how they might be "enhanced". This is just one result...
  11. Did I Overthink It?

    That is a sketch of a router planer base that finally put it's self together in my head. And after today, it sits in prototype on my bench. I have 3 needs this thing had to meet, and I couldn't find anything online that met all 3 in one device. 1) I have the worlds most unlevel floor in my...
  12. Offerman Router Thickness Planer

    After making some smaller projects out of live-edge walnut that I had (see past projects), I got the live-edge "bug". Found a guy that saws slabs of wood, visited last week and picked up a slab that would fit in my car. A 20 - 22" wide x 3" thick x 5' long peice of white oak. A cheap practice...
  13. Focus on the Workspace
    What were the tools, accessories, techniques etc. that you waited to acquire or learn and once you finally got them, asked how you had ever done without? You know, the stuff you might obtain on a whim but end up using everyday…or the technique you put off learning and now it's your new best...
  14. Focus on the Workspace
    I've got my shop basically layed out but not all the way. I would love any comments and help anyone is willing to give! Especially with organization and layout. THANKS!!!! Jason…....
