  1. The Wayne: a frog flat device

    In honor of Wayne, that frog flat of your dreams.
  2. Work Sharp Station

    I decided I needed a better way to sharpen plane irons and chisels. It also had to sharpen all the knives and tools from the saddle shop. I decided to give the Work Sharp a go. When it got here from Rockler, I immediately knew it had to have a better support than sitting on the bench. I...
  3. Sharpening Station

    Here is my chisel and plane blade sharpening station. It holds a water stone and my diamond stone along with this, it has two stops for plane blades 25 and 30 degree and three stops for my chisels 25, 30 and 35. I use these in conjunction with a sharpening guide. I got this idea i think from...
  4. Sharpening station

    My basement shop doesn't have running water so I built this station for sharpening. The stones sit in a plastic container that is recessed into the countertop. An oak bridge over the pond provides a stable base for the stones and a wedge keeps them locked in place. It is covered in several very...
  5. Cherry tall case clock.

    Second grandfather clock.
  6. Guitar Footrest

    This is my latest weekend project. I was borrowing a footstand from a friend for a few weeks, but then had do give it back to him. I was now left without a footstand, and had to make my own! I sketched up some quick plans and then started in on cutting the wood to all the right lengths and...
  7. Custom Fancy Cane #053: (Extra Large) Manzanita Burl & Black Walnut

    The client wanted a fancy wood version of a cane she currently uses that has a very fat handle that projects a good 7 inches. I tried to match the length and girth of the old cane handle and then proceeded to add more to the size for strength and style. She wanted to place the entire width of...
  8. Roorkhee Chair

    I finally finished my Roorkhee Chair. The chair frame is African mahogany and the seat, back, and arms are leather. The leather is joined together with brass rivets. The conical mortise and tenons were difficult to get precise, but the chair is fairly forgiving. This project required so many...
  9. Arts and Crafts table lamp

    This is one lamp of a twin set that I just finished building. The lamps are made of QSWO and the tree appliqués are 3/16 resawn walnut. The lamps are finished in dark walnut Danish oil with a glaze coat of dark walnut gel stain and finishing coats of garnet shellac from flake. I have seen lamps...
  10. Walnut Nightstands

    This project has been a work in progress for quite sometime! All while this project was going on I also got engaged and married and now we both get to enjoy these nightstands in our bedroom. These were designed between my now wife and I did all the design drawings on sketchup. She has very good...
  11. Something from nothing.

    Old worn out beat up oak crate boards given some love and turned into a very comfortable studio/tall folding chair. Thank you Andy, Randy & Jeff for the tips and design. I made two of these but I see more in the future. I wanted to finish this chair off in a deep reddish stained color but was...
  12. Library for trophy, Manu Ginobili

    Frame made by MDF, finishing semi matte black polyurethane
  13. Planer knife sharpening jig.

    I like to think of this jig as Tim Taylor's(from the tv show Home Improvement) take on the Scary Sharp Method. I made my jig out of plywood to help prevent warp. Glue and clamp together. Make two 45 degree rip cuts with an 1/8" thick blade, rotating the jig 180 degrees after the first cut...
  14. Tasai Tsuki Kumi Nomi

    I just thought I'd share my pride and joy with my fellow LumberJocks who I take it have a deep passion for woodworking and great tools, like myself. And as I hope many of you know there is nothing better than Japanese woodworking tools. They are the absolute best in performance and beauty and...
  15. Two Knives I made for fun

    So I have been playing with the idea of making some knives for some time. I had made two from an old table saw blade, but they weren't really what I wanted since I had to stay confined to the blade dimensions. I picked up some cold rolled steel from one of the big box stores, made a template...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    Working on practicing two things before I take my novice handtool skills to a project that I intend to keep off the firewood pile. First I need to practice my sharpening skills. To do this you need a system and you need dull tools. My tools were oookkkk - not the best but they cut. So I decided...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    OK guys so I got the side clamping honing guide from woodcraft a few months ago, I never need it until now that I'm on the plane restoration process, can anyone explain me how to set the iron blade properly to get the right angle? I do see some information on the side of the guide but what does...
  18. Hand Tools
    I have my self setup to sharpen these items. But I have some that have been used and abused. They need to be completely reground from scratch. I do not own a bench grinder anymore, and I don't think the cost and storage space justify a one time fix on my irons. Anyone offer this type of...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Personally, I think my garage is built over the site of an ancient power tool burial ground. Or perhaps I have an infestation of workshop gremlins. I've advanced both of these theories to my friends at the local Rockler, and they say it's more likely to be "operator error." Whatever the cause, I...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've got all the gear, I've watched the videos, read the books etc.. but when it comes down to sharpening it never seems to go as advertised. I'm trying to flatten the back of a new Lie Nielsen 3/4" socket chisel. I started on 400 grit sandpaper on a block of granite. This part seems easy, I...
