  1. Corner Entertainment Center

    This is a two piece unit. It stands 89 inches tall and is 38" wide by 38" deep. This project took me a year and a half to complete, not because it was difficult, but because I couldn't devote the time to working in the freezing cold temperaters of a Minnesota winter in my unheated garage. In...
  2. Simple Bulletin Board

    This bulletin/cork board is made up of pine & redwood. Dimensions: 3/4" thick by 39"x27"
  3. Just a Box

    Bob #2 and I were fiddling in my shop on Thursday night. Well, I was fiddling and Bob #2 was on the shop cam and voice communications from my workshop page. While Bob was waxing poetic about some topic of the moment, I decided to make a box. I haven't spoken much about the Akeda Dovetail jig...
  4. Reclaimed Wide Plank Heart Pine Barn Wood Flooring

    I milled this floor from our reclaimed "Granary Boards". Most of this wood came from barns in Pennsylvania that were 150-300 years old. I ran the rough boards through the planer and wide belt sander, then ripped it to the correct widths. Then I ran them all through the shaper with a flooring...
  5. My Son's Mini-Bat

    My 14 year old who has been turning pens for a couple years had an interesting class yesterday. The teacher brought in a Wood Bat and the discussion/questions started going toward how is a bat made? Josh tended to have his hand up most of the time and was the only one who knew what the machine...
  6. 2017 Christmas gifts for the Families

    Getting an early start on all the 2017 Christmas gifts. We decided to do a mass production run to cover three generations of our two families. The females will receive music boxes while the males will receive storage boxes. The difference between the two groups is the storage boxes have no...
  7. Walnut Urn holder

    My wood buddies are looking, hopefully to the distant future, for urn holders. They had to be large enough so family members could place mementos in with the actual urn. The urn holders would be on display for a short service and they wanted to demonstrate their woodworking and artistic talent...
  8. Toy Chest

    Toy chest built in the Wood Buddies shop for my sisters three year old grandson. The plans have been around for years and were purchased before Woodcraft took over selling them. Our R-tist in residence chose the fabric and painted the laser cut letters. My wood buddy has done upholstery...
  9. From my woods to my basement

    There is something special about dropping a tree from my woods and milling it to finish my basement
  10. Hope or Blanket Chest

  12. Sofa Table

    The basic router class that I was teaching that day had just finished and I was perusing a pallet of maple boards at Johnson's Lumber. http://www.theworkbench.com/ The lumber was setting off to one side of the warehouse, waiting to be loaded into the storage rack. I thought that this would be...
  13. Zen Boxes

    Just a couple of simple boxes with stone knobs. One is curly maple and the other is ambrosia maple. Both have cherry lids. They are about 4" square and 5" tall. The sides have a 3 degree taper starting about the middle and the top has a 5 degree bevel. I drilled a 1/8" hole in the stone with a...
  14. Captain's Writing Desk

    An old looking captain's (ships pirate) writing desk was built in the Wood Buddies Shop for my nephew's four year old son who is apprenticing as a future pirate. To make sure the lid would not fall on his fingers or other body parts when reaching into the desk, curved friction lid supports were...
  15. Oseberg Viking Bed

    I built this recreation of one of the Viking beds found in the Oseberg ship burial mound in Norway out of African Mahogany for the senior flight engineer in our unit who is nuts about the subject. I worked pretty hard to make it almost identical to the original with a few modifications: the...
  16. Solid Cedar Raised Panel Blanket Chest

    20×40x20 solid cedar, including the floor with raised panel sides. 4 coats of sprayed on lacquer. Inside is not finished to retain the natural cedar smell.
  17. Bray Soft Maple Bowl

    In February of 2010 my grandfather, Donald Bray, passed away. Among his many professions, he restored furniture, and I've always known woodworking as part of our family history. In the summer when preparing for the estate auction, we cut down a maple tree in the from yard that my grandparents...
  18. Another Wood Barbecue Scraper

    Another Custom Wood B-B-Q scraper. It's made of red oak for Sid, who is hosting the July 4th barbecue. I can now knock one off in about an hour, including cutting the shape (using a TS55, a Carvex, and an MFT/3), routing the roundover (using an OF1400), cutting the beveled end (using a SawStop)...
  19. Cube in a cube thingy

    I had a few chunks of cedar on the saw from the deck we're building and decided to try one of these cube in a cube gizmos. Surprisingly fast and easy. I probably have 15 minutes in it. Cedar is not the ideal material because the center cube got a little beat up. Very easy to sand and needs no...
  20. Shaper Dust Collection (fence & spindle)

    So when I originally setup a 6"-ducted dust collection system, I built an MDF box that attaches to the back of the stock Grizzly fence housing. The 6" duct that entered the top of the hood split into a fence opening (~5" duct equivalent) and a 4" PVC line that was pointed at the spindle. When...
