  1. Sanding Blocks

    I know sand papers are not expensive but I was getting tired of wasting half of the sand paper every time I use my old sanding blocks. So I decided to make a few sanding blocks that will allow me to use my sand papers more efficiently. I made four of these blocks using some scrap oak pieces in...
  2. Sanding block

    The idea was to come up with a sanding block design which was tool less and easy to change between grits. I think I accomplished that but it ended up being slightly over complicated for a sanding block;)
  3. Sandpaper storage cabinet

    I just finished making my wall cabinet for my sandpaper. I designed this myself for my needs. It holds 6 different belt grits, 10 different sheets of sandpaper, my sandpaper rolls, 3 sanding pads, painter's tape, and 2 sanding blocks. I also wanted to add a door because dust always seems like it...

    This is a 3 inch oak wood feather. I used my pattern and glue spray to put on the wood I made for this feather. tools are drill press to drill a hole in the center. Scroll saw to cut out the center. band saw with 1/8th inch blade to get tight cuts done. white masking tape to help hold the...
  5. One of a Kind ! Butterfly Bush Spoon

    This wood is from a very mature Butterfly Bush I recently trimmed down. The grain is beautiful and the blackness is IN the wood. This stuff is easy to work with and shapes and sands up nice and smooth. Spoon measures 5" long and has cutting board oil applied to it. Thanks for the looks and...
  6. salad tongs, Alderwood

    Wife requested a pare of Salad tongs, so I designed a compound cut band saw pattern then applied the pattern to the hard alder wood and made my compound cuts on the band saw. I used a mop sander that I made my self to get the in between parts of the forks smooth. I sanded the rest down with a...
  7. Sanding 'plane'

    Sanding 'Plane' Wanted a bigger block for sanding straight with sandpaper. A piece of strong good quality plywood (for straightness). A extra plane handle I had in a a drawer, a old knob was used first, but then I turned a Stanley 4 copy on my new lathe, and two fasteners from a cheap plasic...
  8. Wearble Wooden Ring - Canary, Maple, and Walnut

    This is a wearable wooden ring made up of layers of Canary, Maple, and Walnut. The wood was joined such that the grain orientation of each layer compliments the neighboring layer in terms of strength. The ring was cut out, hand-shaped (no lathe involved), and sanded using increasingly finer...
  9. Wearable bentwood ring - Oak

    This wooden ring began with a thin strips of oak that was steamed and bent into a circle, so that the grain runs around the circumference of the ring. The piece was glued with a waterproof poly adhesive, and the stip ends were fine sanded, to conceal the seam as much as possible. The result...
  10. TRAIN WOODEN PUZZLE, HANDMADE WITH SCROLL SAW

This puzzle measures 7"h x 9 1/2"L x ¾" thick and made of poplar wood. A child safe mineral oil finish also...
  11. Why yes, I made a knife scale from a seed pod :p

    I found a seed pod on a trip to Hawaii and with a little epoxy made it into a knife scale :) video here:
  12. Marketplace Classifieds
    I have a gigantic slab of Madrone I'd like to sell part of (perhaps all, but it'd be nice to keep some of it). It's 12/4×14.5" x 108", straight and dry (for years). I tossed it on Craig's List today at $8.50/bf, but thought I'd post it here too. I also have some Teak (originally bought in...
  13. Finishing
    The more I delve into finishing, the more I learn that there is A LOT more to learn. From my previous forums posts, I'm new to the finishing arena. Bought "Understanding Wood Finishing" by Bob Flexner, read it all in a 5 hour period, which really opened my eyes to the not often spoke of...
  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    6/12/11 Responses to a question about sanding, posted on our LumberJocks' Facebook page, received responses that showed the general starting grit for sanding to be around the 100 mark, with one response being as low as 36. A great comment, by Timothy Dorcas, pointed out that the grits used...
  15. Hand Tools
    Lets keeping this simple. ;-) I've got one and looking to use it in the making of a saw bench for the legs. For the most part I get how it works just not clear on how to adjust the cutting blade on the Hollow auger. I did some googling but really didn't find much on usage. If anyone has...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Not sure exactly what happened here, guessing I ran some boards through before the glue fully dried or its just part of sanding hard maple. The question is, can sanding belts be cleaned? Thinking this is way past gum eraser cleaning stick. I thought about tossing it in a bucket with some...
  17. Blogs
    Scary Sharp Method so just like every other woodworker at one point (what's up with the other every other woodworkers is beyond me…) I was researching and learning about ways to sharpen my chisels, planes, and other blade tools in the shop. Since I am the weekend warrior at this point, and I...
