  1. Inlay puzzle coasters

    This project has been sitting on a shelf, half finished, for some time. I finally got a breather from projects I had to do and decided to finish these up since during the last year I've been asked if we have any more coasters. These were actually made as an experiment in inlaying splines in wood...
  2. Frame for Beethoven's Grave

    My daughter wanted to give a meaingful gift to her high school band teacher. While on a recent trip to Europe with a local orchestra group, she had taken a photo of the grave of the great classical composer, Beethoven. Walmart printed the photo for us and I was assigned to make a frame. I...
  3. A box worthy of the gift from my daughter

    [Legebla en Esperanto] Some years ago my little daughter gave me a Christmas gift that she bought at school. It was a perfect present for me, and it demonstrated true thoughtfulness on her part. Somehow I knew that I was destined to make this project one day. Very recently that day arrived. I...
  4. Display rack

    Here are 3 of 6 display racks I made to show my projects at farmers markets and craft shows. Like all my projects all 6 are made of scrap materials and no 2 are alike. Each is built as a foldable A frame, so when closed for storage they only take up 2 inches of space.
  5. Scrap Oak Scrub Plane (Hand tools only)

    I am not a plane maker. This was my first venture into the land of plane making. And since I am trying to migrate over to using hand tools only, I made this with only hand tools. I needed a scrub plane that would do what I needed, the one I had before really bit the cheese for some reason. So I...
  6. Scrap Marking Gauges

    Needed new a marking gauge, and a mortise marking gauge, so I set out to build some out of scrap for a job that needed them. Scrap oak was used, and these were made using only hand tools. The screws were just old bolts that I had laying around. I ground a nail to a sharp point before driving it...
  7. Daddy, Would You Help Me...

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] My daughter (15) is a BIG fan of the Minecraft icons, stampylongnose (Stampy Cat) and Squid (iBallisticSquid) from YouTube. She wanted to do an art project at home of the faces of the character's 'skins' out of wood, so she asked for my help. I cut a bunch of 1...
  8. Protection for a Luthier Tool

    One of the tools that my boss strongly suggested I acquire was a little pricey for my tastes. I finally pulled the trigger and ordered it and then decided that something like this needed a nice safe wooden box to live in. As it turns out, the tool is a bit awkward to hold or even store, so...
  9. One of my favorite toys

    A dozer like this was one of my favorite toys when I was a kid. An older cousin made it. It is nothing more than a scrap of 2×4 and a little bit of scrap 1x plus a few nails. A kid can make miles of dirt road or piles of dirt a mile high with one of these in a day ;-) The blade pivots to...
  10. pallet coffee table

    I was inspired by a fellow lumberjock on here, unfortunately can't remember they're name, so I hope they don't mind me using they're design as inspiration! but apart from the legs (2×4) I made the whole top from a pallet, detailed, filled, planed, sanded, handcut and sanded some more… then some...
  11. Cantilever End Table

    This table is made 100% out of scrap wood that was destined to be burned. The boards that I decided to use were full of flaws and were so unique and colorful that the flaws had to be designed around. This End Table has so many flaws that it should have been thrown out; but the flaws make this...
  12. Curly Top Recycled End Table

    This table is made out of scrap wood. Found the pieces in a throw out pile at a hardwood lumber yard. Got the OK to take them. The top is burled Hickory…...I think. Used lap joints, biscuits, and screws for the construction. Even made homemade plugs for underneath the table top supports...
  13. 1st ever wood project! Toy shower 1:12 Scale

    I'm excited to show first project. A simple toy shower. It was cut as straight as I could with scroll saw- no pattern. Sanded. No stain/paint/little shower head etc as my 4 yr old refused to let it go! The tiny slits for curtain rod wire was a 1/16 hole then used the actual little scroll saw...
  14. Boxes - I'm No CharlieM1958

    I promised my brother I'd make him an entertainment center that looks kinda like a fireplace surround with a mantel. My first impression was that it would be pretty straightforward. It wasn't and I'm still thinking on how to provide the shelves he wants, the height he wants, that's not too...
  15. Picket fence and Trellis

    Built a trellis for the wife this weekend and finnaly got it put up today. That is her planting her new vines. Hopefully it will be covered before long. Stripped 1×2 into 3/4×3/8 strips, then glued and nailed together. ( titebond II waterproof glue) The Picket fence I had built last year and...
  16. Laptop lift

    Tired of hunching over your laptop on your desk, jack it up! I used scraps to build this lift, including an old oak rocker. To help it run cooler, I put a rail on the back so that there is an air space underneath the laptop. Also, the rail puts the keyboard at an angle which makes for more...
  17. Score!!!!!

    The owner of a local recycling center took a liking to me and gave me as much recycled wood as I need for free!!!!! These shipping crates are 3 feet by 4 1/2 feet plus the boards are 1 inch thick! There is so much wood at his place, he said I can come back anytime and get as much as I want. Then...
  18. Slab top table

    Just finished this table, made from wood liberated from my friends burn pile. It's pine with mahogany for the bowties and tenon pins. The stain is steel wool and vinegar. Any filler is wood glue, sawdust and coffee. The check in the top is filled with epoxy mixed with coffee. The spanner is a...
  19. Bamboo Zero Clearance Throat Plate for my New (to me) Unisaw

    I finally upgraded my saw to a Unisaw! It was long overdue and man-o-man is this thing a beast. I found it on CL about 15 miles from my house. It has very few hours on it, came will all the manuals, a mobile base, extension tables, and the Delta Tenoning jig. For $900 delivered! It's a 3hp 220...
