  1. Another Sandpaper Box

    I was inspired by the sandpaper storage boxes. I have been thinking about this for a while. I just started finishing a cherry table using waterproof paper for finishing. I have a bunch of that paper and regular sheets and it was a mess on the shelf where it lives. So after seeing several...
  2. Sandpaper Organizer

    I just got back from vacation a few days ago and I felt like messing around in the shop today. I decided to build a sandpaper organizer that I've been meaning to build for some time now. I started designing it in sketchup around noon today, and 10 hours later I have it completed. You can see...
  3. Snadpaper box

    This was a quick put together sandpaper box. It is made of basswood and was finger jointed at the corners. I do a lot of hand sanding and I found a lot of quartered sheets of sandpaper just laying a little of everywhere so That's the reason for this box. Of course if I have a box I have to carve...
  4. Belt sander / sharpening jig

    This was in the latest issue of Woodturning Design magazine. What I did differently was to adapt the Wolverine base to it. It's made from an old waterbed frame from many years ago, just glued and screwed together. The sander is set at a 45 degree angle. I did play around with making the base...
  5. Box Elder Claw Hammer

    Made this as a gift for a fellow wood-worker friend who has helped me a lot. It started out as one piece but broke so I strengthened the whole thing with CA glue and then started fabbing it. The head is secured to the handle with a 2" long 1/2" dowel…inch in each piece. Lot of shaping and...
  6. Sandpaper Holder

    This is made of 1/2" ply MDO. The shelves are made of 1/8" expanded PVC. The stops in the back are cedar .75" x .75" but it could be whatever. It is all leftover sign supplies. I had sandpaper all over the place and needed a good way to store it. I sort of copied another project I saw here on...
  7. Oak shaver and brush hanger

    Nothing too fancy. I needed a hanger for my razor and shaving brush in my spare bathroom. Had a scrap of white oak that's a pretty close match to the wood trim in the bathroom. Cut two pieces, drilled a few holes, chamfered a few edges, glued things together with a couple dowels to be extra...
  8. 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...
  9. Elm, walnut & sassafras butter dish

    While making my shop stool I cut off a couple corners. Those pieces had some real nice patterns to the spalting and grain, and I decided that one of them would make a nice butter dish. I started by hollowing it out with a router plane. Then smoothed things out a little. I had some tear-out due...
  10. Never-Again Hammer

    Made this out of spalted maple that was right on the edge of workability. Had it about 2/3 the way done--sanding/shaping--and it BLEW apart while I was using a file on it. I took a pic, closed the shop, and went inside for the night! LOL This morning, I glued it back together and finished it...
  11. OAK BLANKET CHEST

    A run of the mill blanket chest raised panels and stub tenon construction. Here's and example of being in the woodworking business. I suggested a number of the details should be different like better hinges, much nicer lid supports and a nice lock all vetoed buy the customer. So it makes a...
  12. My old trusty block sander

    this is probally the most used tool in my shop next to my table saw. its is really useful in tight corners. just thought id share.
  13. Holder for "glass beads making" mandrels

    Made out of Willow, Pine and Meranti. No powertools used. Glass beads are made on a stainless steel mandrel and are used in different sizes. I made this for a local artist, in line with her workshop.
  14. Sandpaper caddy - a measure here, a measure there ...

    A few days ago I wrote a little about this project in my blog and was encouraged to post in the projects list about it as well. My first attempt was , in a word, weak. After looking at it for just a little bit, I destroyed it and determined that I would do better. My first thought - don't try...
  15. Ballet Bows - Diane and Acteon

    Made these for a friend for their ballet company. These are wooden bows made from Ash, 14" long and 1" in diameter at the handle, tapering to the ends. They are painted gold and finished with spar urethane. It was fun to watch these bows being put to good use on a stage, and also to see them...
  16. Knife block

    My sweetie had her kitchen knives just rattling around loose in a drawer. Drove me a little nuts, and they were always dull. So I made her a block that will hold them in the drawer in front of the silverware tray. Nothing too fancy. Just 11 strips of cherry sandwiching ten strips of maple, glue...
  17. Sand Paper Organizer

    Finally cleared out and organized the sandpaper drawer!!!!! I found this project in Fine Woodworking AUG 2017 (No. 262), pg 16. I make mine bigger (22"L X 7"W X 6.5" H) to hold 18 slots worth of sandpaper. I know a lot of people have a drawer full and it's a pain to find what you need when you...
  18. Preppin' Weapon Sanding Station

    Picked up a Preppin' Weapon sanding block about a week ago and it's been amazing so far, I cut up some sand paper to size (60, 150, and 220 grit) and afterwards I decided I needed a place to store the sanding block as well as the sized sandpaper. This is what I came up with, made with some scrap...
  19. Carved cherry fish

    This was a scrap of cherry. While looking at it trying to decide how to carve it, there was no way I could figure to make it into a bird, so it ended up being a fish. I thought about an orca, but the tail goes the wrong way for a mammal, so that's right out. There was a big knot on the right...
  20. Small table or foot-stool ?

    I've had this old twisted branch laying around the shop for a couple years. I'm not sure what kind of wood it is and I can't remember where I found it but I just knew when I saw it that it would be something one day. This morning, it screamed....I am a small table base or foot stool! I...
