  1. Canoe paddles for a Scouting Adventure!

    Had a great time building paddles with some our our Boy Scouts in our Troop. I had to get a little creative with mine and add in some curves. The walnut and curly maple is my sons and the stack is all the other paddles that were built in my shop or in the past few years. 14 of us participated...
  2. Wood Tic Tac Toe Board

    This is a pretty easy project and makes a nice holiday gift. This version was made from a scrap piece of hardwood and a 5/8" dowel. As an extra touch, I added a compartment inside the board to store the pieces. The compartment panel is held on with magnets for a clean look. Build Instructions...
  3. Adirondack Chairs

    Wanted a couple adirondack chairs to relax in this summer, so found the popular mechanics plans on the web and chose to build them, along with the side table. I chose cedar and put 6 coats of spar urethane on them, so hopefully they will stand up to the years of weather on them. I also got a...
  4. (Another) Carpenter's Tool Box

    The first one went to my li'l step-grandbaby. This one's for my nephew, Alexander. His … Idunno … maybe 11th or 12th birthday comes up soon. Between that and … my nightmares about my less-than-perfect dovetails the last time around … I thought this would be a nice gift. It's beetle-kill...
  5. 2325 Log

    I received this Log from a friend's wife. My friend's wife requested that I inscribe their address on the wood. I have never done this before, and while it took a lot of time and required a bunch of chemicals, I was pretty happy with the end result. I was surprised how well I could stay...
  6. FLAG CASE

    Flag case, sides made of 15mm oak, 3mm plywood back, overal dimensions 40×40cm, finish wood oil, base 40mm thick, 3mm glass. Splines were made of wenge.
  7. Stool Sample......

    I built this still so I could see how well I like the design. So far, I line it pretty well, but I think I'll modify it with a deeper seat, making it more square, and I'll experiment with scooping the seat as well. Anyway, it's made of SYP, the legs are 32" long, and the stretchers are...
  8. Magazine Rack Cover

    So I've got this wire magazine rack, and I like to read in the comfy chair. I also like having a table or some such to put my drink and book down from time to time. Took a piece of curly maple, and came up with this. Two coats of spar urethane with a light sanding between them on the top, one...
  9. Walnut & Padauk Side Table – “Defiance”

    Yay!!! I am beyond thrilled with how this Walnut & Padauk side table turned out! I painstakingly chiseled every joint by hand and ALMOST enjoyed every second of it! ;) This was my first time working with Padauk and I must say, for a flatboarder, it was extremely workable. My only complaint would...
  10. Pine Photo Cabinet

    My neighbor commissioned me to build her this photo cabinet for her framed photography. Each door was built using a tongue and grove router bit set and all the joints are dados/rabbits. Should have bought a biscuit jointer…. The strips were made of masonite and wedged into saw kerfs. The trim is...
  11. Adirondack Chair, aka my 1st Project

    First off, sorry if the pics aren't oriented properly; couldn't figure out how to do that. They're correct on my phone!! Any advice on fixing this would be most appreciated. Not perfect, but I'm pleased with the outcome and I learned a lot. Used Fine Woodworking plans, 5/4 & 4/4 cypress and...
  12. Adirondack Chair

    Adirondack chair that took me forever to make, mainly because i cut my finger well enough to require 19 stitches (didn't lose it tho, that is a plus) made of cedar and coated with Spar Urethane. i think it turned out really well. I had intended on making 2 at the same time, however ran out of...
  13. Maple Lazy Susan

    I finished! The few posts in the brief series are here. I also put together a video of how the finish looks rotated around in some various lighting. I'd like to do that with write-ups on how I've finished things from now on to build up a helpful library of how particular finish schedules on...
  14. Finishing
    hello all, I think I might have screwed up. Working on an outdoor table for my covered deck. The top is a lovely and hard to come by (at least in my neck of the woods) 35" wide double live edge slab of dawn redwood. After flattening the slab and sanding I am up to 4 coats of Minwax spar...

    Howdy, Have a wonderful day of Thanking God for your blessings. Happy Thanksgiving! God Bless you, Joe Lyddon
  16. Finishing
    Hello community, I recently embarked on my first woodworking project: a simply farmhouse rustic style table from reclaimed coastal redwood. The great news, the table turned out exactly as I wanted. The bad news, I may have made a mistake with the finish. First I sanded the tabletop using 80...

    does anyone have any experience spraying Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane? i am not spraying a large area, just small signs. i use the Spar Urethane cause is leave a nice glossy finish and lasts in the weather. i know they have the spray cans of this, but it is expensive when you spray a lot of...
  18. Finishing
    I'm finishing up a farmhouse table for a client. She saw a previous table I did that I had used satin varnish on but wanted hers even less glossy than the satin so I chose some Minwax Pro Series Spar Urethane. I had used it on another project and knew it had a lot less sheen. My problem is I...
  19. Finishing
    I'm trying to decide on the best finish for flag I've made which is impregnated with water based stain. I can't quite decide which would be the best choice. I'm trying to avoid any yellowing, so I know urethanes are inherently inferior in that department, but would seem to be the most durable...
