  6. My first project - Bed Headboard and footboard

    Well, this was my first project. I guess I didn't buy into the start small theory.

I didn't know really anything about woodworking going into this project, just what I had...

    This was an interesting build. My client had already purchased the screens, which are thin sheet steel, laser cut, 6' x 3'. My task was to design a roof deck and privacy wall using those screens. One early challenge was that the back corner of the existing fence is not 90°. We wanted to give...

  11. Custom Wooden Pistol Handle for Taurus Judge

    A coworker of mine heard about my woodworking addiction and asked if I would be interesting in creating a custom wooden handle for a pistol he had. When I started thinking about it I thought that maybe it was a Colt 1911 and I could simply make some custom grips that screwed into the metal...

  15. Mobile vertical sheet goods cart

    Sorry about the sideways photo. Can't figure out how to fix this. I made this sheet goods cart after a post by another lumber jock. I wanted to store my 4×8 sheets "standing up" to save space. I modified the cart sides to 60" (from 48") and widened the base to 37" so cart would not tip. I...

  17. A Perfect Circle Every Time!

    This is the band saw circle cutting jig I just built, an overdue jig for my shop. Only a 16'' X 26'' and 16'' X 18'' pieces of 1/2'' birch plywood were required to build the jig, as well as a hardwood runner for it to register in the miter slot. It was straight forward to build using only the...

  19. Sea Urchin Ornaments

    Made up a batch of ornaments … sea urchins with walnut finials. The bases on the upper and lower finials are connected with a piece of a bamboo skewer … that way, there is no glue on the sea urchin shells. These shells range in diameter from 2" to 3" apiece … the top finials are about 1 1/4"...
  20. Frankenstein Feathered Hard Fishing Lure

    Time to kill. I thought about making a hard bait that incorporated feathers into the body. It was a strange assembly but in the end I came out with something. The next one will be better. I don't know if anyone else does this. The thing is made out of white pine, finished with feathers, an...
