  1. Small Wood Mallet

    Here is my first project, done completely by hand. I bought a ton of wood from an estate sale, and part of the lot was this extremely dense heavy wood block. I had no idea what to do with it or what kind of wood it is. I decided it was the right size for a small hammer, possibly for my chisel...
  2. Live Edge Sofa Arm Table

    Made this on a bit of sudden inspiration for what to do with a live edge cut off I got for free somewhere. Didn't know what wood it was, turned out to be aromatic cedar. Tiger Maple was actually from HD. I tried to keep as much of the live edge as possible, but the top shown is significantly...
  3. Dovetail Saw Holder

    This goes along with my Ryoba saw holder i posted recently Here This is my veritas "dovetail saw". Personally i think it is a horrible dovetail saw. if anyone uses that free hand let me know and also if you use wood thicker than like 3/8". With 22tpi it is not a fast cutting saw and with...
  4. not just any box its a breadbox

    this is my entry for the not just any box contest. Its a breadbox made from cherry 2×4. it measures 16" wide 13.5" deep and 14" tall.
  5. Xmas Saw Handle

    "Quick" Last minute christmas gift for my girlfriend's Uncle. He saw me using my Marples ryoba saw one day and said, "well that's neat". So naturally while stumbling last minute to come up with some gifts I remembered this and decided to make him a handle from some walnut he gave me a few months...
  6. A Japanese WWII Ammo/Storage Chest

    The build video is here View on YouTube So some news, I'm moving! Between my wife and I this time will make the 40th time we have moved either overseas or from one house to another (this is counting both our childhoods as missionary kids) This is NOT a highly refined project. I was looking...

    I have seen a few videos where they are using splines to either dress up or strengthen the joints. When it's done tastefully, I rather like the look of it, so I'm planning to try it out myself soon. One thing that I haven't quite figured out is the best orientation of the grain in the spline...
  8. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm just back from the 'shop, where I was cutting some finger joints using a Kataba that I bought a couple of years go. So impressed was I when I first bought it that I subsequently added a Ryoba, Dozuki and different sized Kataba. It would not be an overstatement to say that these saws have...
  9. Hand Tools
    I need to resaw some 4/4 lumber (Chechen), into several 1/4 (approximate) plates about 8"x10". I no longer have a jointer to flatten the face, so I'll have to jig it up and run it through the planer on a leveling sled. I'll be resawing with a ryoba following a scored line around the outside of...

    Mini Block Plane I'm starting a new series with this post, figuring that I'll want to talk more about old and new tools in the future. I was in a random hardware store today when I saw a couple of these little guys sitting on the shelf. I thought, for $9, why not? Rosewood body, with a small...

    Yeah. A Bandsaw Would Be Nice. Today I began a little reverse engineering project for a friend. He saved a sofa from the junk heap, but it was missing one cushion support frame. I told him it shouldn't be too hard to make a matching one. So here's what the original one looks like: The width...

    My Saw Bit Me. Three Times! In my video for Woodworking Safety Week 2008, I repeatedly reminded my viewers to keep fingers out of the path or potential path of the blade. Hmm, this gets tricky with a ryoba and two sides of the blade - thus two potential paths. For some reason, this weekend my...

    Learning to cut through dovetails and tenons If you read my earlier post on making my own Dowel Nuts then I think I figured out what I did. After reading my own post I think what happened was this… I tapped the threads in the brass while the brass was still warm from drilling the pilot holes...
  14. Joinery
    I've begun this attempt at the siren they call Woodworking about a year or so ago. So far its been a series of challenges I've loved to overcome. With every mistake I make, it's an opportunity to learn from. The past 16 months have been full of "Happy Little Clouds" as Bob Ross would say...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    The Best Things has ECE frame saws for sale, which seem like a good choice. http://www.thebestthings.com/newtools/saws_nt.htm I'm interested in a saw for ripping hardwood boards, typically for smaller projects such as boxes. Am I better off with a frame saw, a dedicated ripping hand saw...
  16. Focus on the Workspace
    Hey LJ's, Thanks for all the great responses to Part I! Got me thinking and I mentioned I asked my wife to make ne a knee length shop apron. The only material heavy enough was upholstery fabric. Yeah right! LOL! And that striped pillow fabric. I said I'll either get lost sitting in a...
