  1. Projects Coasters from scrap

    Nothing fancy, no amazing laminations or etc. Just pure wood. I have a bucket of scraps that would fit the bill (the bucket that is not for the wood stove). It has been on my "todo" list for some time to knock out some of these. Various woods (Maple, Ash, Cherry, White Oak, Sapele, Walnut...
  2. Very simple, very plan, very basic baseball holder

    OK, I know … this hardly constitutes a "project," but honestly, along with sharing ideas, I'm using LJ to document my progress and growth in the hobby. That said, I finally caved in and bought a router (the Craftsman Fixed/Plunge duo with the table; total price-$80. Thanks, Surprise Points)...
  3. Scrap wood beer tote with bottle opener and fish engraving.

    Hi, here is the beer tote which I made from scrap wood with small fish pattern made by power engraving tool. Fish pattern found in the internet and it's not my project.
  4. walnut coasters

    These coasters are made from walnut and maple. They are finished with a spar varnish. This was a quick and fun scrap wood project. I made matching cheese boards too.
  5. Now we are cookin'

    at the beginning of December i decided to raid the scrap wooc pile and make some useful items as gifts. Fjnnh thkng is i forgot to make any for our kitchen
  6. Purpleheart Bracelet

    A small bracelet made of some scrap purpleheart. Finished with a quick coat of BLO, followed immediately by a coat of 2 lb. cut shellac and about 2 more coats of shellac afterwards. Then a couple coats of General Finishes arm-r-seal, follow by some beeswax to give it some shine.
  7. shop storage box/silica

    In the continuing story of using my scrap buy and my shopsmith shelf was a fail. I bought a craftsman tool chest for the accessories. Tool chests need silica bags to prevent rust has been my policy for years. So after Christmas I have been a collector of more silica bags from boxes and gifts...
  8. Blade Box Redux

    Ten years ago, I was fretting over the state of my tablesaw blade storage, er, uh, there was none! I had them in a flat file drawer with sheets of cardboard to separate them. As I would swap one for a sharp one or one of a different use, I'd have to do a blade shuffle and be careful not to...
  9. Cutting Board

    I made a 10" X 7" cutting board from scrap wood. It is made with oak, cherry, walnut and other various hard woods. I created the pattern by flipping the pieces back and forth. The design is from the end grains and I think it added quite a bit of character. I completely sanded it and finished...
  10. #45 Combination Plane Storage Box

    Well, eBay coughed up a very nice Wards Mastercraft 45. This is a Stanley #45 but sold through Monkey-Wards. This is a complete set, right down to the original box, instruction pamphlet and what I believe is the original purchase receipt fro $12.65. :) For me a bit more but still well under...
  11. Pocket watches from scraps

    This is a good use for those ends and pieces from box making. I do a lot of contrasting wood boxes, clocks, etc. and it kills me to throw away the scrap. So…. I just keeping gluing up and cutting the leftovers, cut them out with a hole saw and drill a hole to fit a small insert. On the back I...
  12. Simple saw till - slot type with glue sticks

    Simple saw till as per tyvekboy. Simple approach for an eclectic collection of saws and saw like tools. The bow saw blade on the right shows that it can not accommodate all saw types. Easy to make, easy to mount, easy to move.
  13. Rolling Room Divider - recycled wood

    This is a giant storage unit I just finished. I made it because I needed a place to put vanity items like hairdryer and lotions etc. I had a big seven foot bookcase and thought that I could mount a full length mirror on the back of it. Then I imagined the whole thing built on top of a heavy...
  14. Pallett end table for carport

    Ok, everybody else is doing it, so now it's my turn. Here's a little end table I made from a pallet so that when we sit under the carport we'll have a place to set drinks and such rather then put stuff on the concrete floor. About 6 months ago (when I was still working) we started getting some...
  15. Sink Bridge / Sharpening Station

    Not long ago I was looking for new ways to make sharpening my handtools easier, and after a long time I discovered pictures of metal sink bridges for water stones, soon after I decided to make my own. I basicaly grabed two scrap pieces from old projects and figured a way to merge them together...
  16. box for scisor lift at work

    It's been a while since I have posted any projects. I really haven't had any energy for projects now that I am back to work installing fire sprinklers. But I built this box and a print table that sits on a rolling cart. I didn't think of this as a project really but Ibbuilt it so why mot post...
  17. Scrap wood end table

    Another table made out of scraps. Put the legs on at 2 different heights just for fun.
  18. Candy Dispenser [Kids Project]

    During a random trip to the library with my daughter, we picked up the book Build it with Dad for her to "read". While she was perusing it, I suggested she pick a project we can make together. She picked the candy dispenser. So this Sunday afternoon, I helped the kids build their candy...
  19. Tool Organizers, Lathe, Chisels, Drill Bits

    Some miscellaneous organizers I made out of scraps to help me find things better. I have the assortment of lathe tail pieces and plunger behind my lathe within easy reach. Organized hand chisels to protect them better than rolling around in a drawer. Put together 2, 3/4" pieces of MDF. Cut...
  20. Wine Glass Shelf

    I saw one of these at an antique store and since my wife and I needed a stemware storage location, I thought it would do good to fill the need. Also, it was an excuse to use my new Delta 12 1/2 inch planer. The shelf is made of scrap pallet wood that I had. After several runs through the...
