  1. Plant/Display Stand from Scraps

    I have ton of scraps, mostly small pieces, but I refuse to throw anything away. I know I can just build some small shelves, spice racks, etc., but I really wanted to do something more unique. I'm always researching and reviewing ideas and OPP (other people's projects). Simply copying other...
  2. Salt and pepper shakers

    I decided a while back to try my hand at a craft show next Christmas. I thought that I could do small production runs of various small items that can be bought inexpensively. These salt and pepper shakers (7 sets), bottle balancers (12), and bookmarks (over 40 so far) are the first projects that...
  3. The Silent Projects

    About a month ago now, my wife and I welcomed home our new house-guest. We locked him into a sweetheart 18-yr lease: food, clothes and roof provided free-of-charge & taxi service included. He's just sticking around for eighteen years, at which point, if we did our job right, he'll move out for...

  8. Small Projects

    Here are a few small projects I completed a while ago. I couldn't see posting these individually so I just through them all in the same gallery. First is a simple pencil holder from, you guessed it, the Wood Whisperer site. Tiger maple with a padauk base. For the second pic I'm sorry, but...
  9. "JEWELED" Walnut Bookends with Brass Inlaid PB Bunnies

    June 13, 2012 I thought I'd share one of my old projects made back in the late 1960's. It was done in one of my shop classes for a project. Back then Playboy Bunnies were cute. These looked better back then when the brass inlays were bright and shiny. They tarnished even with a coat of spray...
  10. Fish Shaped Trivets

    I made some figured trivets out of scrape wood (walnut, ash, cherry, paduak) that I was getting ready to burn. A thanks goes out to Andy for his post on this little project. While not as nice as his, it is a good start on some Christmas presents. The trivets are finished with two coats of...

  15. Site Help and Suggestions
    Y'know, I have no problem with the political or religious discussions here, as long as the writers are willing to get as they give. Let the readers decide when a member goes off the rails, or reacts to an opinion with disorganized thoughts or irrational responses, it's fun to watch the...
