  1. Purpleheart, Roller blades, Dog Toy Oh My!

    I've been wanting an inertia sander for a while, so yesterday I decided to make this! I used left over Rollerblade parts from my steady rest, an old buffing pad I cut down, purple heart scraps, and one of the dogs old dense foam balls. Just being cut it will continue to become bright purple the...
  2. Oscillating Spindle Sander Cabinet

    This cabinet is mounted on a Mobile Machine Base and can be rolled to any work area in the shop as required. The mobile base has a foot operated control lever which makes raising and lowering the cabinet easy. The base foot lever is currently located in the back. I will be moving the lever to...
  3. Carved Walnut Elephant Phone Stand

    My wife wanted a new phone stand since she gave all of the other ones I've made her away. I found a piece of 12/4 walnut cut off and figured lets give this a try. Rough sketch on the wood after planing down the end to a flat surface, cut it out with a jig saw. When I went to smooth out the...
  4. Surprise swap items

    Fibonacci gauge made of figured maple and cased in brass. I wanted a high polish on the brass but I figured out it is near impossible to do without getting brass swarf embedded in the maple. The plates were already pinned in place so I couldn't do anything about it. If I ever do it it again I'll...
  5. Horizontal Belt Sander

    I've been wanting to get a horizontal belt sander for a while. I currently own a Delta shop master, which I hate. The motor is under powered and the disk sander never worked because the set screw flew out. I could never keep anything square and then finally a little while ago the switch...
  6. Plywood Starburst Table

    This is a table my wife wanted for the new sun room. It is 36" diameter, 29" high and a 31" base circle. I planned on 6 segments but it meant some pretty wide pieces. I did not want to laminate boards to get the width as that would be additional seams so I went with 1" Baltic Birch plywood...
  7. homemade bench top spindle sander

    After i purchased a Triton bench top spindle sander i was a little bit disappointed about its flimsy plastic housing and overall appearence. So dismantled the machine in just 30 minutes and build a new housing in Finnish birch plywood with a thick and sturdy melamine top. The solid construction...
  8. Yin and Yang Outside Calipers

    I had been meaning to buy a set of calipers like this for checking wall thickness among other things that they are good for. Well I got this bug to make one out of the scraps laying on the bench one day and I finally finished them. Bob, I had to bribe the elves to work overtime on this one...
  9. Weed Vase #4

    These are kind of fun to make so I made another one for a gift for my daughter. It is made from beech wood with a little spalting and an insert of walnut at the mouth on top and walnut for the base. It is 7" in diameter and 1 1/8" thick. The last shot is of the 1/8" drill I used for alignment...
  10. Vac Rack

    I bought this little cordless auto vac for little jobs around the house. So you get it and where do you keep it? Laying on the desk, on a shelf, in a closet ( and forget you have it)-out of sight out of mind !! So I decided to make dedicated place to store it in the computer room screwed to...
  11. Potty Chairs

    These two potty chairs are for McKinlee and Mylah, the two great granddaughters. They are made from 1/2" and 5/8" Baltic birch plywood. They measure 12" wide x 12' 1/2 front to back and 21" high. They are finished with white semi- gloss enamel I made one for our granddaughters back in '92 out...
  12. Trim Router Base

    I needed a better way to control my new trim router since my fingers hurt too much to wrap around it. I was watching a sign carver and he used a base like this and I thought I should make one to see how much better control I can get with it It is made from7/16" Lexan and 8 1/2" wide and 7" deep...
  13. Toy Tote

    My little guy is a hoarder when it comes to cars. He wants to carry as many as he can everywhere he goes. The problem is he is carrying them around in gift bags that hold way more than he can carry and they end up ripping and spilling everywhere. So in an effort to make something nice for him...
  14. Paper Towel holder

    This is a house warming gift for my sister. The house she just moved into has maple cabinets and she needed a paper towel holder. This one is maple and walnut and is finished with semi gloss lacquer. The sides are doweled and glued to the back plate so no screws are showing. The last show...
  15. Butterfly Jewelry Box

    This was a scroll saw project made for my Grand Daughter. The top is made of Cherry, Purpleheart, Yellowheart, Zebrawood, Cedar and Walnut. The bottom part of the box is red oak. The box was finished with Shellac.
  16. Otter Media Storage

    Yet another animal that resides in my living room. I use the otter to store my current CD and DVD favorites. The stone ball rolling down his stomach (from Pier 1) snaps everything to attention. I'm not trying to advertise for Popular Woodworking, but it did appear in the April 2001 issue.
  17. Dragon Pull Toy

    My recent entry into the wonderful world of LumberJocks started with a blog entry by A.J. Hamler. http://blog.woodshopnews.com/workbench/?p=1238" In it, he said that he was making a dragon pull toy for a grandchild, and gave me a nice shout-out as the designer. He said that he found the plans...
  18. Expand the use of your spindle sander sleeves

    Does the table ever get in the way when you want to do some freehand forming or rounding a corner. I barely had enough room to scallop my mallet handle. I have had this idea to put an extension shaft on a motor to secure the sleeves for some time. After a few hours of machineing I was ready to...
  19. Stained Glass Storage Box

    This one of 2 boxes my wife requested to put her larger pieces of stained glass in to keep the colors separated and also so she can retrieve them easily. I did not have enough of the 1/2" plywood to make them both at once . This box goes on a shelf in a small closet that I fitted with shelves...
  20. Small Mantle Clock

    Deb (the boss, and my better half) collects clocks, so last week she got a 1" clock insert at Woodcraft. I had just gotten a resaw blade for the craftsman bandsaw, so I made this. Lyptus wood, provincial stain in tung oil, then two coats of poly.
