  1. Shop Made Traditional Froe and Mallet (Riving axe)

    I made a froe (riving axe) and mallet for myself using wood from a tree that fell in our yard, and an old lawnmower blade. I used my angle grinder to shape the blade, which took a while because a lawnmower blade is not perfectly straight. After much sweat and grinding, I bolted it to a handle...
  2. Wooden kitchen utensils

    I found this site through another member, so I thought I would register and share what I make. I will add more wooden utensils later. If anyone is interested in how to make wooden utensils or the tecniques I use, or anything that has to do with the spoon making proccess, I will be happy to...
  3. Mescalbean-Red Resin

    Designer pen kit with a really cool blank from my favorite supplier. Curtis at Turntex.com has the neatest blanks that he makes and you can't beat the service. No, I don't get a kick back, but I do shop there more often than I should. When my next shipment comes in, I'll post more of his...
  4. Red Bud Carver's Mallet

    I don't really do any carving but I couldn't resist making one of these. It's pretty beefy at 11" long and right at 16 ounces. I'm sure I'll find lots of uses for it and if not it'll look cool sitting on the workbench.
  5. Outdoor OctoGrill™ Table - Please HELP!!

    Hi all! New guy here. I've undertaken a fairly (for me, anyway!) ambitious project of building a 6' octagon which houses a center Weber Grill for on-the-fly grilling and imbibing. It's built 100% out of Cypress which I've read to be a great choice for outdoor furniture. I've covered it in 5...
  6. Table Saw Twig Jig

    video Link: This is a cool little way to split twigs, small branches,and dowels quickly and safely on a table saw! For most of my career I have designed and built rustic furniture, and need to find a way to cut twigs in half that was fast efficient and safe this fun little project has served...
  7. Padauk Turned Box

    I turned this box for my daughter's 7th birthday to hold all her new earrings. It is padauk about 3-1/2" tall.
  8. Wooden platter made from old kitchen worktop

    learning to turn by practicing using an old oak kitchen worktop. This platter is 46cm accross, which is as big as my lather would do. It was a bit adventurours for an early piece and the face of the disc is not as even as I would like, but I learned a lot during the process.
  9. Lanee's Shelf

    Well there isn't much to this pine shelf. My wife needed some more storage over the changing table, so here we are. I normally don't go with paint, but white goes with the rest of the room.
  10. Salt&Pepper

    Curves and straight lines, walnut and maple, far east meets Crafstman style. Contradiction is my creative goal.
  11. Joinery
    Hi All, I've been lurking here for a bit, then hit a heck of a roadblock last week on a project… Let me preface this with full disclosure: I've committed nearly every embarrassing woodworking sin imaginable in this situation, so feel free to let me have it, but also know I'm trying to make...
  12. Woodcarving
    Hello there! I am brand new to the site and so far it has been very useful to read all of the stuff and check out the amazing projects! I did have a question that I hope someone could help me with though. I recently carved some spoons for the kitchen out of various kinds of wood. They are...
  13. Wood & Lumber
    Greetings all! I'm new here and must confess it was my search for answers that brought me. I have a redbud tree suffering from some large, inch-long white bore worm. It excretes the little pellets just like termites do. I need to drop the tree anyways as it hangs over our neighbor's wood...
  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hey everybody, I have been talked into trying to sell some of my bowls at our local "Green Market" next weekend and have a question for you. I have a fairly decent amount of "inventory" but I also have a couple of, "still wet", blanks that I would love to turn and have at the market. My...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I posted a hall table project a year ago. I was particularly pleased with the way the top is attached using sliding dovetails as it allows for seasonal wood movement without any hardware. In fact, it seemed to work very well, as you can see from the pictures. In the winter, the dovetails poke...
  16. Wood & Lumber
    I'm making a bench (like to sit on) and my design calls for 6/4 thick legs, about 10" wide x 18" high. I'm using something that is sentimental to me that is made out of wood for the stretcher. I've already cut notches into this item and my plan is to cut the legs down the middle vertically, cut...
  17. Jigs & Fixtures
    I think I remember seeing an article about drawing arches using straight pieces of wood. Does anyone know anything about this?
  18. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm using this picture I found online to build a murphy table. From what I've read, I should be concerned about the boards under the table top that run perpendicular to the boards on the top. See illustration. I like the look of this murphy table, but will the table top split if I build it as...
  19. Blogs
    The rules of the day So I'm calling this the slowest shop, because thanks to the "econemy" (misspelled deliberately because it's more enemy than economy) and other life issues, just as many/most of us on here are, I'm unable to do most of the things I'd really like to do. In an earlier blog I...
