  1. Cake Holder : looking forward to see it in use !

    My wife asked me to build this cake holder for a friend anniversary at the end of the month. The plates are 1/4" plywood rough cutted with a jigsaw and routed on my router table with a simple jig : a scrap of 3/4" runner with a pin in my miter slot. The pole is 4/4 cherry laminated pieces and...
  2. Another small project : camelbag dryer

    Everyone that has used a camelbag knows how hard it is to clean it and if you don't you water quickly gets a bad taste. Having say that, I feel ashamed to call a project a piece of reclaimed cherry (finish test board from a previous project) with a 3/8" dowel in it…. But the wife seems to find...
  3. Small projects : tools handles

    I have completed some tools and handles for my shop, from left to right on the first picture : Marking knife : I cut my old planer blades (DW735) and resharpened the blade. Then rough cut two pieces of maple left from a previous project. I've inserted two steel dowels in the original blade...
  4. Ice Cream Scoop with Celtic Knot inlay, knurled and burned

    My first prototypes of this project went to relatives for Christmas gifts. I hadn't used the lathe in 15 or 20 years and started with some avocado "firewood". I kept refining techniques and learned to use glue liberally and patiently on the inlay. I used yellow heart and purple heart on this one...
  5. First project for LJ business card holder

    Well pretty simple but thought it was about time I shared something. Made this for the pro at my favorite course, the base is a beautiful piece of maple and the holder itself is walnut.
  6. Wave Mail Holder

    This was a small project I designed as a bandsaw exercise, and I'm very pleased with how it came out. The "wave" is made of red oak with gloss poly and the bottom is poplar, stained with Minwax red oak and finished with gloss poly. Using 1/4" plywood, I created patterns for each piece of the...
  7. small box for mothers day

    I wanted to make a nice, homemade present for my mom for mothers day. I got some nice ideas from this website and decided to make a box with splines. The box was made from 1/2" pine with walnut splines. I used a honey stain (A Minwax product) that gave this project some extra flavor. I used...
  8. Writing Desk

    Did this quick writing desk with my son. It's based on a design by Thomas Moser. Just some poplar with stain.
  9. Texas Wooden Flag

    I had a couple of extra fence pickets I wanted to use and made this guy. After painting, I beat the crap out of it with various tools and sanded some of it off to give it a stressed look. A great simple and quick project for gifts to friends and family.
  10. First duck call - Quack

    This is my first attempt at turning a duck call. Wanted to create a quick prototype to get a feel for the overall shape, the tenon work and getting the call insert to fit properly. It's tough to see from the photo, but there is a seam where the two parts meet towards the back of the call. For...
  11. Hexagon Coasters

    I've been wanting to incorporate epoxy resin to a project, so I figured epoxy coasters would be a good place to start. Wanting to add a little flare, I decided to make hexagon coasters, using a hexagon cutting jig I made a while back (you can see the hexagon jig video here). To make the...
  12. Crib Mobile

    We were in need of a crib mobile and my wife was on the hunt at local stores, while I was on the hunt for ideas on how I could build it myself. Once I had the concept down I showed my wife and she liked the idea of me building one vs. buying one. It uses old scrap walnut material and is more...
  13. Minature picnic table

    I first saw a similar design of these made from pressed cardboard from China. I thought that they where pretty cute. I started them this winter and finally finished them today. I used some scrap oak but had to buy the shakers and condiment holders. I hope to get a lot of use from them this...
  14. Bottle opener that's better than a nail in a stick

    Found this idea on a vacation awhile back. 3/4 inch copper pipe and a cool piece of wood. Another thing for the smaller scraps. Also can be used as a phone holder while your enjoying the beverage. https://www.etsy.com/shop/ShortBenchWoodWorks
  15. A couple of tops for fun

    When I first got my lathe I was anxious to turn something. I saw some basic top projects and thought I could do those easy enough. I had also seen some projects that I loved on Woodturners Workshop where he combined different species of wood in a single turning. So I combined the ideas and came...
  16. Child's Bench

    Just a little bench to use up some of the scraps building a pile in the corner, I can't hardly stand to throw any wood away. More of a garden accent than anything, size is not very practical and way out of proportion but much nicer looking this way than in a heap in the corner!
  17. Crib Board

    The plans for these were in an issue of Canadian Home Workshop a few years ago and I made one as a gift for my grandmother (the only one who can consistently remember the rules for cribbage). The game board is birdseye maple and the base is walnut. She loved it and has gotten a lot of use out...
  18. Wood & Lumber
    Hi there, I'm working on a project where the goal is to match some existing cabinetry from the 60s and 70s (some type of mahogany plywood). I will need about 3 sheets of 4'x8' 3/4" to finish the project, but I don't want to start ordering sheets without seeing them in person to ensure a good...

    Vape pen stand As an amputee I have intense phantom pain that only a relief vape can stop. If you lay them on their side all the juice pools on the side instead of at the base of the wick. The vape pens themselves have a small, tippy, footprint that easily falls over even if your hand is steady...

    Side projects and stuff I'm still waiting for my mini kanna to arrive, and I'm kind of in-between big projects. I've really got nothing noteworthy going on. It's been a slow period for my woodworking, consisting of nothing more than a sharpening day last week. My wife kept dropping a deck of...
