  1. Bookshelf with handy side cupboard in iroko laminated with other exciting timbers

    A number of people have told me that although my boxes are nice, they aren't actually much use (thanks for that), so I've made this. It's a small bookshelf suitable for a bedroom or study (I would say). The thing seems to have been around and rather in the way for aeons; this job has been...
  2. Round Ring Extension Dining Table

    Completed November 1993. This is an old Thos. Moser design called the round ring extension table. He no longer shows it on his web site. The most distinctive feature is the laminated apron rail that follows the radius of the top. I experimented with various finishes back in the day. The...
  3. Scraper Plane for Tool Swap

    We're wrapping up another fantastic LumberJocks Tool Swap. Reveals are going on right now in the swap thread so hop on over there and check out the tool porn! This was my entry that I made for LJ PoohBaah. It's based on a 112-style scraper plane. It's most akin to the Veritas version because...
  4. DIY Detail Scraper from Utility Knife Blade

    Hello, guys! Here is a video instruction (2min) how to make it: The blades can be used as is or you can use the used blades by dulling them more and turning the burr on them. The steel is soft enough for turning the burr just like you would do on the card scraper. I saw this idea in the Fine...
  5. Natures Gifts

    Well this is my first post on this site and I hope it is up to the standard. I am a retired army first sergeant that one day hopes I can make a living with my wood. My primary focus is wood turning however I do studio furniture. The style of this piece was deffinately Nakashima inspired with...
  6. Spokescraper

    For the past few months I've been playing around a lot with scrapers, beaders, scratch stocks, and whatnot. I got started when I read Kari's blog post on them. When Shannan came up to visit me a while back we even made some together. So, the creation of this baby was a bit fortuitous. A...
  7. Scrapers for dressing holes

    Two quick shop-made tools I made yesterday in order to make something else. When you have a blind hole, most drill bits won't leave a smooth bottom in the hole. Sometimes this matters, as when you drilled the central hole in a chunk of wood to make salt & pepper shakers. My solution was to take...
  8. Cabinet scraper and burnisher

    This weekend my funnest project was this cabinet scraper and burnisher. This first thing I made was the cabinet scraper. I use an old backsaw blade that I had laying around. I first cut it in half by using a cold chisel. Then I ground off all the teeth. I used the factory edge as the edge to...
  9. Card Scraper Holder

    Finally banged one out in a day :-) I took some scrap ply, marked out my kerf lines on 1/2" centers, and ran 'em through with the radial arm saw (neat !). Then, I did an inlay of Wenge, or something, at the front and at the back. Then … I used my dado router jig, and carved out about 1/3" of...
  10. DIY Gooseneck scraper + Metal Etching Logo

    Hi LJ! In this video I'll show how to make a gooseneck scraper from an old hand saw. I'm also explaining an effective method to etch metal by adding my logo into the scraper. As you already know, a gooseneck scraper are used on contourd surfaces to obtain a crisp result avoiding you sanding...

  12. Turned Bottle Openers

    I was having some fun on the lathe, and made a few different bottle openers to practice. Purpleheart, Padauk, and Marblewood. I ended up making another one out of maple similar to the Marblewood one, but didn't get a picture of that one. The padauk handle opener was the first one I made, and...
  13. Card Scraper Holder

    Card Scraper Holder Few years ago I did made another card scraper holder but still I was not satisfied with its performance as I have weak hands/fingers, so I needed a better design/solution to help me out. I find that this design it's much better and ergonomic and needs less effort to scrape...
  14. Dance Muse and 4 Different aspects of a Nebulous Thought

    Dance Muse and 4 Different aspects of a Nebulous Thought are by product of ³ism. By that I mean, I was sad to see all those nice shavings, scrapings, sawdust wasted, so I collected them by color not really knowing what I was gona do with them, just that I already used some on The Shacks. I just...
  15. Quick and Easy Card Scraper Holder

    Here's the card scraper I made using a 3/4" Baltic birch plywood scrap, a shop-made knob, a T-nut, four screws and four washers. Finally, a finger relief for long scraping sessions! Find more photos and details on this page of my blog. Thanks for looking. Best, Serge...
  16. Elm Box with Lid

    This piece was a joy to turn. Most pieces are until they aren't. This one was never not. I am calling this Elm because I am not sure what it actually is and I've already turned a few pieces from this tree and called it elm. Its so soft (and green) so it cuts like butter. It immediately turns...
  17. Red Cedar Bowl

    I started this project shortly after getting my worksharp 3000, and it served as a test/training for me on how to use it. With a soft wood like this cedar sharp tools are essential, so I quickly learned to use the worksharp which made all the difference, especially with all the knots in this...
  18. Stanley #4 plane and #80 scraper

    I got this #4 stanley plane off ebay for under $20 shipping included. It worked pretty good the way it came, but had a case of the uglies. Someone had painted the knob and part of the bed with gold paint, and the handle had black paint splattered on it. THe gold paint came off with a soaking...
  19. Large wooden serving tray

    This is the first project I made using hand tools, I dimensioned the wood with hand planes, reduced the thickness from 3/4" to 1/2" and cut the dovetails with my Japanese saw and chisels. Also made the raised panel bottom with a hand plane. The wood is poplar and is finished with a coat of...
  20. BBQ Scraper

    This is a simple oak Barbecue scraper that I made for a neighbor's 65th birthday. Engraving was done using my Shaper Origin. Yes his name is "Bob" and he's the neighbor I helped build the BGE table that I also posted.
