  2. Record Cabinets

    A local businessman wanted some record cabinets made. They are mostly 3/4 import birch plywood. The fronts are mostly locally harvested stuff - poplar, butternut, cypress, and some rough weather oak. And the trim is walnut. Probably too much information here.. "...
  3. saw till

    I'm sorry for the bad images. I didn't think to take some before I installed it. I have a very small shop so I do my best to tuck things into places and make the most of the walls space I have. Recently I've learning how to properly use, repair and sharpen saws. I had a few from my grandfather...
  4. My windmill 10 blade 36 inch

    This windmill I made is made from exterior grade plywood and has a redwood body for it will last outdoors for many years. It took me a few days to make ,and it is finished with marine spar varnish. I painted the tips red and white. I put roller skate bearings in the hub so is rotates freely in...
  5. Play Ball Part II

    Nearly 100 days ago I posted this project thinking it was nearly completed. It is finally ready to hang on the basement wall, 3 1/2 months after her birthday. Around 20 years ago my wife & I were living south of Milwaukee & decided to drive to Minneapolis to see our home state Tigers play the...
  6. Coat Tree for daughters Christmas

    My daughter wanted a coat tree for she and her sorority house suite mates to share. She wanted the tree itself and the pegs to be different colors. I laminated 2 2×4's together to make the post, after jointing oe edge of each so there would not be a seam between them caused by the round corners...
  7. Saw cabinet

    I've needed a place to store my saws for a while now. After wrapping up the box swap, I got out some pine I had and started building another box, this one a little bigger. I've gotten quicker at preparing lumber with hand tools. The pine had a little cup to it, so some quick traversing with the...
  8. Dovetailed Saw Till

    Hello Lumberjocks, After utilizing the site for a lot of inspiration in the past, i decided to post a project. I just recently completed making a saw till. I enjoy refurbishing old tools and most recently hand saws so i needed a place to store them. I made the till out of 5/4 birch. All the...
  9. Little Staked Table

    I blogged about the building of this little staked table so if you want details of the construction, that's probably the best place to go. Briefly, the table consists of turned ash legs, staked into two pine battens, which are attached to the bottom of the pine top. Finish was three coats of...

  11. List Maker

    I made one of these way back in high school for my Mom. Somehow she lost it or it got broken and she really wanted another one for her birthday. I still have lots of Sapelli left overs from my uncle so I used some of the more visually appealing pieces for this. I used box joint construction...

    This is my "Medium with Hackberry" Lazy Susan. The measurements are 15 1/2" across (17" tip to tip) and 2" high. This lazy susan has 9 kinds of wood, all the natural colors. There are 464 pieces in the overlay, 136 diamonds and 328 triangles. The type of wood used is listed on the bottom from...
  13. Sewing stand

    Nothing fancy for most of you fine crasftmen but I enjoyed making it. A small back story. This old singer stand was our kitchen table as I was growing up. My dad had made a slate top for it and I can remember sitting at it for many a dinner. I found it in my mom's garage a few months back...
  14. Salt Cellar

    This is a salt cellar based on the wood whisperer's video. this was a fun and easy project. I had a stack of 4/4 cherry cutoffs all 10" long so I glued them together in a big stack. I used a 3-1/8" forstner bit to drill the holes, much easier than all the routing. I glued a dowel in the bottom...
  15. Wall Clock

    The sawmill owner that I used to visit in North West NJ, used to throw me pieces of wood that he likes but he knew that he'd never sell as part of his business. He cut mostly for farm buildings, trucks floors and other types of work. He did have a kiln so some furniture grade lumber was...
  16. WineCabinet

    First actual paying project…it was for a friend so they got a good deal. It was tough getting the stain as dark as they wanted without covering the grain. Learned alot doing this one and want to do another, but not anytime soon
  17. Router Dado Jig

    My first jig ever. I'm going to be building a massive closet storage system in our new house soon and I wanted to make clean, easy dados for many of the shelves. I got the idea from a publication I found on the web. The link is below. Mine isn't as pretty since I our local home store doesn't...
  18. Incence Holder

    With this years Christmas coming to an end and being on the verge of 2012….wow….hard to believe, I found a project that sets a positive tone for the upcoming year. This is my version of an incence holder made from maple stock and finished in oak colored stain. A bit rough here and there (oh...
  19. French Cleat Accessories

    After hanging my French Cleat wall and using it for a week or so, I started building all sort of other holders and organizers: ones for squares, chisel rolls, Mallets, cords, apron hooks, safety gear, aprons, saw horses, clamps, Japanese saws, boat paddles, etc… I ringed the garage with a single...
  20. shop made hand tools

    I have seen so many of the incredible planes and tools you all have, I thought I would risk your wrath and just share a couple of mine, The planes are pretty typical, I think the only unusual thing may be the corian throats I have put in a couple, other than that, just nice comfortable little...
