  1. Arts and Crafts Mantel Clock

    This is the Mantel clock that i made for my woods class. I used Maple and Cherry for this project. I liked colors of the wood so all i did was put a thin layer of Clear gloss to give it some shine hope you like it.
  2. Wall Clock - chip carved

    10" x 10" Wall Clock Basswood, chip carved, nutmeg gel stain, textured background, sealer and lacquer finish I used to carve a lot of clocks but got away from them for quite a few years. I don't know why but I pleased to carve this clock. The textured background added some variety to the...
  3. Wooden Mallets

    Haven't posted anything in a while so I thought I would throw these to out there. Using some hard Maple and Red Oak made these to Mallets. The first I used a piece of scrap ABS plumbing pipe and Hard Maple. I turned the center post slightly larger than the ID of the pipe. Then I heated the...
  4. POTPOURRI BOXES

    I had been thinking of making these for quite some time. I did not like them at first but after they were finished, they kinda grew on me. They are made of my favorite woods, Walnut and cherry. Hope you guys like them.

  5. Chevy Bison Semi Truck

    This is the 1st of three trucks for a friend. At first he asked for two, but after seeing this truck, he asked for another. I decided to make something different ( the Bell 222) for the cargo that could also be played separately. I used mounting blocks with dowels to keep the helicopter in...
  6. 2-Sided Picture Frame

    I was searching the net for some Christmas gift ideas and found this on Fine Woodworking. Decided to make a couple for some friends of mine who are avid photographers. Photo mattes and glass are from dollar store frames. First try at hand cut tenons.
  7. Wedding box #2

    Spent 1 1/2 hrs tonite on her. Cut all the #0 biscuts for the miters. Glued and clamped. Waited a little for the glue to dry and started cutting the mitered key slots. If you do even just a few small boxes and like this detail- It's worth building the jig! After the keys are cut, just add...
  8. Stick Dulcimer

    http://thewoodknack.blogspot.com/2014/08/stick-dulcimer-or-cbg-strumstick.html Update: My daughter playing the dulcitar I don't play guitar but I love making things, especially noisemakers. The process for building cigar box guitar (CBG) type instruments is well known and covered extensively...
  9. Built in Bookcases

    This is a set of built in bookcases that I did for my daughter. On the right side there is a knee hole so she can use her laptop and have a writing surface. The face frames and doors were made with poplar and the case is MDF. There are no backs on these. She wanted her wall color to show...
  10. Holiday Pens 2010

    I made a ton of pens a couple years ago for the Holidays and got burnt out on them in the process. I did some pepper mills and cutting boards the following years and got the bug to go back to pens. I refused to do anymore 7mm kits other than the few I had on hand prior. I like them, just done...
  11. Ink Pen

    Turned a pen on my lathe. Fifth Pen I've turned. Black acrylic and gun metal hardware. Wife says it looks weird with the fat lower part and the thinner top.
  12. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I've had a Carba-Tac mini-lathe for years and it has, and still does, serve me well. But I see that a lot of the lathes now have variable speed motors on them. I've emailed Carba-Tec in AU but does anyone know of a supplier in the US of A where I can get a variable speed motor to bring my lathe...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I was in our local Lowes store yesterday and they had a bundle of five 7 1/4" Kobalt 24 tooth carbide blades in a hard plastic holder for $19.99. With my veteran discount that ended up less than $4 a blade including tax. I bought them thinking I could use them for certain cuts that I didn't...
  14. Woodturning
    I've been working on my first open segment bowl the last few days. All was going well. I five 24 piece layers glued up using the Seg Easy plate and the Stomper. This morning I rough turned the inside of the first three layers. I just brushed in the sanding sealer on the first four layers -...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Well I've pretty much convinced myself I want (see, I didn't say need, I'm learning) I want a Tormek wet grinder. I've sharpened everything from kitchen knives to woodworking tools to axes and everything in between by hand my whole life. It's to the point now it takes me at least a full...
  16. Woodturning
    I recently bought a Harbor Freight 14" x 40" lathe only to find that the slowest speed set by the pulleys is 800 rpm. I would like to slow this down to around 500 rpm. Is there a motor speed control that could be used on this or any some other suggestions on how to slow it down? This seems...
  17. Site Help and Suggestions
    Noticed a little glitch when I couldn't connect a couple hrs ago. Since then I can't keep up. Everything is instantaneous!! THanks Martin!! ;-))
  18. Woodturning
    I got a fair deal on a mini Jet a while back, so got to see what the hullabaloo about lathes was all about. At least some what. I've been enjoying it a lot. All my files have really nice handles and so do a those of a few of my friends, for example. Changing speed, by swapping the belt...
  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    I use my large disc sander and stationary belt sander to "sand to the line" after rough cutting a pattern. Too often I get burn marks. I know about taking light passes, and using a light touch, and using a coarser grit first if I have a lot to reduce, make quick passes, etc. I am also aware some...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Has anyone ever tried to DIY a slow speed grinder? I have an antique B&D benchtop. Would it be possible to hook it to one of those router speed controllers? Or have I taken leave of my good senses. I was just wondering if anybody had tried, or knew of such. Seems a shame to buy another...
