  1. Roubo Workbench (Hand tools Only)

    In my attempt to move over to a hand tool lifestyle, I decided to upgrade my workbench to a Roubo, since they are all the rage. This is Roy Underhill's version. I don't have his book, so I had to redesign it to fit what I remember it as, keeping his basic vision as a base to work off of. I biult...
  2. Joint Stool from a Tree

    In July of 2013, I attended the "Make a Joint Stool from a Tree" class taught by Peter Follansbee at Roy Underhill's Woodwright's School in Pittsboro, North Carolina. I am perfectly aware … this is not a nice looking or, even a good example of craftsmanship. I won't show you any close ups of...

    Made from Walnut finished with Danish oil, For a friend
  4. Mathildes greasebox / jewelbox (LJ project no. 100)

    Mathildes grease box This is my LJ project post no 100, serious I need professional help! Imagine a daughter that say to you; 'daddy I have only one wish this Christmas, a little box like the one you have made for yourself, the one with the dovetail in the end!'. This is my daughter!!! So I...
  5. Mitre gauge handle

    Well, I got this new saw, after I got my new saw (long story) and in the process of getting my new saws the mitre gauge handle had some intimate contact with the floor, the result being a broken handle. After some swearing I started to process some ideas for a new handle. I got these short...
  6. Wooden gluts

    A pair of wooden gluts made from Australian Blackwood. Used for splitting trees or splitting planks out of a tree. Basically a big wooden wedge. I describe in a bit more detail on how it was made in my blog http://lumberjocks.com/daltxguy/blog/27573
  7. Pinch Rods

    My first completed project in a long time. I'm focusing on getting my workshop up and running and I'm starting off by making some marking and measuring equipment. These were originally inspired many years ago by an episode of The Woodwrights Shop where Roy makes "pinch pods" and "squeeze...
  8. Tool Tote

    Tool tote made similar to Roy Underhill's infamous tote. Since I don't have Roy's book "The Woodwrights Apprentice" this tote is a bit different than the original. The main difference is the size. I made mine 20" long x 10" wide x 5" tall as a smaller size to carry around misc. tools while doing...
  9. Roubo bookstand made in Roy Underhill's class

    This was a one day class in Pittsboro NC with Roy Underhill. It was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it. Plus you can go upstairs and shop for old tools in Ed's store. Roy said the wood is Peruvian walnut. It is fairly soft and easy to work.
  10. Roy Underhill Tool Tote

    I've been watching the Woodwrights shop as long as I can remember and have always been a fan. I thought it would be fun to try and make the tool tote Roy carries with him during the start of the show. This project interested me mostly because of the joinery and the fact that it is a fixture on...
  11. A Ladylike Grease Box

    My wife often gets left out of my gift-making because my time is limited, she is selfless and doesn't really need/want anything that I make most of the time. So this year, I've been making it a point to make her little things that I hope she'll like and use for special occasions. She has a...
  12. My Very Own Copy of the Mystery Mallet

    When I first got into woodworking I didn't have the money to buy a mallet (sad, I know). So I made one out of maple that has served me well. But I always wanted one like this. Fast forward several years and Popular Woodworking started the buzz on this Mystery Mallet by Roy Underhill. When I...
  13. Midnight Snacker"

    "Midnight snacker" was designed by Robert J. Hlavacek. I have made alot of his designs,I really like them,they are fun and imaginative. These are just two racoons from the original pattern, and the bottom is the whole pattern. They are made out of cedar, walnut, black walnut and maple, green...
  14. Rising Dovetail Mallet (Roy Underhill's Mystery Mallet)

    Scott (lysdexic) and I took a class at the Woodright School on Saturday and made Roy Underhill's "mystery mallet." The class was a lot of fun and Roy is great teacher and one of the most animated people you'll ever meet. With respect to joinery, this was probably the most difficult piece I've...
  15. quick and dirty thein seperator

    I used PVC pipe for the connection to the table saw and a port that came out of the harbor freight dust collector accessory kit for the connection to the dust collector. I used hot glue to secure them to the trash can. Being lazy I just used 3 wires to hang the baffle. It works great...
  16. Underhill Portable Workbench

    This is my folding portable bench. It's one that Roy Underhill built on 'The Woodwright's Shop". There are plans for it in one of his books, but I followed a build that Steve Branam did on his blog. From seeing his build photos and descriptions and watching the episode of Woodwright's Shop I...
  17. Mallet day

    Made these after watching Roy Underhills "Big Ash Mallet" about three times. The heads are Osage orange and the handles are red oak and walnut. I finished them with bees wax, which makes great for gripping. I had everything laying around the shop. I'm giving 3 away as Christmas gifts to aspiring...
  18. Oak coffee table

    Red and white oak coffee table. I had fun with the band saw on this one!
  19. Triplets

    My horses had triplet ponies! The design is from Roy Underhill's 21st season in 2001. There are probably hundreds of different styles and varieties of sawhorses, each with its own advantages and disadvantages, but I've never seen any that are more elegant, light, and strong for the materials...
  20. MaFe Overkill grease box (the ABDEL version) [Roy Underhill]

    MaFe Overkill grease box Had to try and make a Roy Underhill version… Ok I admit it, Roy Underhills version are really cool, like a little Pandoras box! But - it's too big and not really so easy in use in the shop, my other versions are better for this. Or the old English I also made. So - I...
