  1. TV and VCR Shelf for the bedroom

    Jackie wanted to be able to watch TV in the bedroom and I needed a convenient place to put the TV. So this is what I made. The curved lower portion of the sides was to keep it from being a head knocker.

  3. 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...
  4. Prayer box

    I was going through my pics and found this one. I made this last summer for a girl who was in our youth group. My wife and I lead a small group with the youth and this girl was in it. I've met very few people in my life, including adult, who have her faith and convictions. She and her family...
  5. Shop Made Scraper Planes

    I made these last September, at the end of my shop-made hand tools binge. (I am sure I will have more such binges.) I have not had a chance to post them since I was busy putting my website together. I am experimenting with showing off projects with video. Let me know what you think (both...

    I have been doing some research on topics for new videos, and I may need a reality check on one topic: card scrapers. I am under the impression that the reason many folks do not use card scrapers has nothing to to with the virtues of using scrapers, and has more to do with some barrier to using...
  7. Hand Tools
    Hi guys, First posting, but been reading the forum for a while now. Just been getting into using the card/cabinet scrapers…. Wow! I'm offically a convert. I have 5 of them from Lee Valley and Bahco. Over the past month I've watched every video on how to prepare the edge and burr. I've...

    I got some card scrapers for Christmas and I'm trying to figure out how to use them properly. I was looking around on here and I found a project that I liked that is a card scraper holder and my question is that in the comments ratchet says 'I am probably going to unscrew the two halves and...

    An introduction Since I already blog at my own domain I did not want to duplicate all of that content here at LumberJocks each time that I made a post. So, I asked Martin if it was appropriate for me to have blog entries here at LumberJocks that link to my own blog. The answer was a...

    The workbench project begins! NOTE All of my photos have been migrated to a new provider, and the links in my posts are likely out of date. You can find the photos here. I actually began this project around 6-9 months ago, when I got into woodworking, and I did some of the original work then...

    Working with Melamine This is a re-edit of the video that got me started doing videos. Unfortunately I knew very little about shooting and editing video at the time. In fact, I shot the video with a web cam, so the video quality is poor in parts. The re-edit gives it a nice face lift, but...

    The Problem The long and short of it can be presented in two words: Cracked Tabletop. But the table is old. Not a family heirloom of mine, maybe someone else's at one time, but I only came by said table a couple weeks ago with one easy payment of $60 cash at a local auction. I recognized it as...

    Finally some success I posted a while back in the forums about card scraping. Mainly my interest was driven by the reduction/elimination of sanding from my finishing routine. I bought some card scrapers and a burnisher from Woodcraft, set about sharpening them/creating a burr via several...

    Fein removes tub surround I had been holding off buying this tool for several years. Recently one of my customers in whose house I had installed a fiberglass tub surround had a crack appear in the soap dish of the unit. The company sent someone out to fix the crack as the surround was still...

    A bit of a scrape Yesterday I had a client walk in the shop with some clear Pine boards and the request to joint it up into an L-shaped kitchen countertop, 24" wide. Work is work and I told him to come and collect tomorrow. In between other work, I planed the boards and noticed they were...

    Free scrapers that work Ah ha! Got your interest right? This is a little video that introduces glass as a scraper. I use them all the time and prefer them in many instances to steel ones. Plus glass is free. It is you know, nearly everywhere and in quantity. Take a look and see, it only lasts a...

    Tombstone Doors, easier than I thought! When building my wife's new chest on chest cabinet, I decided to add a little something a little different than the plans that I had on hand, which would be new to me & adds a new challenge for me overcome. The basic plan for this storage cabinet came...

    Prep for Finishing the years I had many different methods and idea about how to get a project ready for finishing. Like any other part of woodworking we all have our own way of getting to the finishing stage. Some smooth every part and piece with a drum sander, others use a jointer to clean...
