  1. Odd Corner Entertainment (Floating) Stand

    My mother wanted a place to put the TV on the fireplace wall and needed a custom piece. A little rough but I learned a lot in the process. It's anchored to the wall on the left side and uses the fireplace ledge for support on the right side. The height and width of the LCD threw a wrench in...
  2. Radial Arm Saw Dust Collection Solution

    This is a 1968 Sears Craftsman Radial Arm Saw. My father bought it new that year and converted the two car garage into an office and wood work shop with it. He had no table saw at the time. I can post more photos for those who are interested in the difference between years. Sometimes older is...
  3. Hall Bench

    This is a hall bench that I built from oak lumber I salvaged from a house fire. The wood was black from smoke and was left sitting outside in the elements for a year before I salvaged it. The wood came out of a 1903 house, and was one inch thick. I was able to plain it down to 3/4" and 1/2"...

  7. Jungle Chase

    This was my first relief carving done in 1991. I carved it for a woodworking magazine show in london. It was my first attempt at a show too… I know that this may sound stupid but I was so disappointed not to even get a 'recommended' card next to it , I took it that it wasnt up to standard. I...

  10. 1st attempt at Oak cabinet

    This unit was my first cabinet I ever made with solid wood of any kind. As is obvious, it was made with oak. As it progressed, it seemed to be looking O.K., so I saved the raised panel door challenge for another day. This one does not have the raised panel doors, but it does sit in my living...

    Just finished a set of 6 chairs. They are from a Fine Woodworking article, I also ordered the plans with full size templates to make construction easier. The design is similar to the original Stickley piece, but the back has more detail. I built the chairs from QS White Oak. After planing...
  13. A simple hook

    This crochet hook was one of my first and favorite projects. It is a simple hook made from walnut that I turned between centers on my lathe. The knot was not visible to me when I started the turning project, so this was one of those happy accidents that work out every once in a while. If you...

  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Tonight I turned on my table saw, and the motor just hummed. I removed the belt, and it still just hummed. I took it out of the brackets, and blew it out with compressed air, and it just hummed (and smoked a little). It is a 1 hp Sears motor and is about 30 years old. Should I take it down to...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have an old (1940s) Sears (Belsaw) 12" planer. It works and I've been using it regularly, but there are a few areas that could use some improvement. I'm looking for some advice for restoring/modifying to make it work a little better. Here's a list of the items I want to address. 1. Change...
