  1. Slightly modified New Fangled Workbench

    The bench is only slightly modified from the original. I made it six feet instead of eight to fit in the space I had available. Pretty much as soon as I was done my wife said I could have both bays of the garage, so now it's just shorter for no reason, but that doesn't mean I'm going to...
  2. Second church cb makeover

    This is the second cutting board I found at the church fair. I cut up the walnut and added european beech, hard maple, purpleheart, paduck, white oak and yellowheart to the aged walnut. I think it jazzed it up a bit.
  3. Fly Fishing Fret Work

    Here is a fret work piece I did for my Dad for his birthday. He is an avid fly fisherman who turned 73. I took the easy way out and had it professionally framed and put under glass. Made of Baltic Birch and finished with BLO and clear Poly. Happy Birthday Dad!
  4. First Wooden Plane

    I have thought about building my own plane after seeing them pop up as other peoples projects. I figured it would be a difficult build but after reading DonW's how-to a few days ago I figured I would give it a shot. I dug into my scrap pile and came up with some white oak, walnut, and hickory...
  5. Jewelry Box

    This box is a design from WOOD magazine. It's made with walnut and cherry. This was a very fun project to build as even though its relatively simple in nature, the curves add a nice flair and the construction requires most tools in the shop. I typically build from rough plans I designed...
  6. First End grain cutting board

    After getting my first real saw, the Grizzly G0715P, I wanted a project to get used to the saw. I figured a cutting board will be a fairly good project, not to mention it'll give me some practice with my glueups. Sadly I don't have a picture of the initial glue-up, it looked quite ugly and after...
  7. Hickory Bread Box

    After viewing MoTad's bread box from New Zealand, I thought I'd add one of my own. I used ½" hickory to build this box as it matches our kitchen cabinets and hickory is a very reasonably priced wood, less than $5.00/ board ft. I built a ¼" wide track on the inside and mounted ¼" dowels on the...

  8. Signs for Marriage

    I got a CNC router this spring and began a long learning process filled with several errors. We have had 3 weddings this year and that gave me the good chance to practice. I definitely am pleased with the results now that I have gotten the hang of the design, cutting, and finishing process...

    These napkin rings are a fun, quick carve! I've got the patterns if you'd like to give them a try. There is a video lesson showing you the technique as well. Shoot me an email or reply with your comments if you'd like.
  10. Christmas Ornament

    Here is the first of a run of ornaments for some local craft fairs that start next month. The top and bottom finials are Walnut and the bulb is Redwood Burl from Mendocino CA. The bulb is hollowed to roughly 1/8". The finials are attached to the bulb with titebond 3 and a small tennon that fits...
  11. First piece of furniture

    My wife was getting a little sick of the olive drab harris storage locker that i had been using as a coffee table since my days in the barracks, so i promised her I would make her a new table. This is the first piece of furniture Ive made so i am quite open to some criticism here. I do not...
  12. Curly Maple and Walnut Watch box.

    This box is made to house a collection of watches, commissioned by the collectors partner. I came up with some initial sketches and was given fairly free reign with the design, it just had to hold at least ten watches. The Timber is American black Walnut with the Lid, Drawer front and feet made...
  13. Step Stool

    A step stool compliments of plans on Ana White's website: http://ana-white.com/2010/09/some-more-stairs.html Made from pine and varathaned with a few coats. Had to adjust the hinges to make sure they don't dent the bathroom cupboard doors the stool is against. Also put some rubber bumpers on to...
  14. Small box with scraps

    After I finished my recent burl box- I needed to use the scraps. Worked them into the legs and top of this 5"x 5"x 6" tea box. I will be making a bunch more for christmas. Better then burning the small pieces. Big leaf maple burl and wood.

  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    While perusing the Grizzly site I came across the 8.5" 1/2hp H0625 and 13", 3/4hp H0626 oscillating drill presses. I was wondering if any LJs have any experience with either of these lil' guys? I like the oscillating feature for sanding (I don't think I'd have enough use for a spindle sander...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I know I saw someone talking about replacing the casters on their Shop Fox mobile base to get it to move a little easier but now I can't find the thread. I would like to know which casters are the best to use and also sould I replace the fixed casters with swivel casters?
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    The saw came with a Shop Fox fence. I'm would like to add extension legs and rails. I would also like a more accurate fence. I've read some very positive reviews about the Vega system but I'm unable to tell if it would work on my Grizzly Table Saw. The Vega Utility 50 was designed for...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi all, I'm looking for a decent jointer and having a hard time on which to buy. Found someone selling a 6" Shop Fox W1745W for 425$ said he'd take less, cash talks. Also found a Delta X5 for 300$ waiting on a call back..it's quite further than the Shop Fox but not a problem. Thanks for...
