  1. Slightly different woven board

    This board has a background and accent stripe of New Guinea Rosewood with the main weave of Tasmanian Blackwood and the other accent is Purpleheart. I hope the pics are big enough and there is a bit more detail.
  2. Screed (not a straight edge)

    My wife is an elementary age (grades 3-5) science teacher at a private school in Massachusetts. This summer she was able to get an augmented reality sandbox for the school. Last weekend while helping her get it set up and calibrated I realized that it would be helpful for her to have a screed...
  3. First Live Edge Shelf

    This is my first stab at making a live edge shelf. We needed a shelf for our junk for the TV so, I thought this might be a great time to make a shelf. The top is obvious with the live edge showing on top of the shelf. But, I thought I'd continue the theme by making the skirt of the shelf with...
  4. Ode to Tools of Yesteryear

    Mounted on rough-sawn barn cedar is my ode to old tools. This is a collection handed down from my father and grandfather that I am pretty proud of. Included are two spoke shaves, a hand plane, a tin box for auger bits, and a brace and bit. This hangs above my workshop to remind me of the way...
  5. Wooden spoke shave rack

    Completed this spoke shave rack, inspired by Pinterest post, that guy doesn't have enough spoke shaves! All from pallet and scraps. CTMike
  6. Guitar Stand

    well here is my new guitar stand, its made of cherry and walnut with just a splash of maple. I carved this by hand, in pic 2 you can see the ankle, which I carved from one piece. I made 4 of them before I got one I liked. the angle had to be just right to support the guitar neck and belly...
  7. FWW Mid-Century Coffee Table

    So a friend of mine was flipping through a FWW furniture catalog I had given him, and Mario Rodriguez' Mid-Century modern coffee table design caught his eye. This had caught mine as well and I always said, "man I'd love to make that." But I didn't really have a place for it in my home...
  8. Tiger Maple Spoon

    A maple came down this past winter across the path to our summer camp in Maine. I cut it up for firewood and started splitting it when I found it was Tiger Maple. I could not just burn it so I saved a few sections. This spoon is made from that tree. I roughed it out with an ax and shaped it...
  9. Joiners mallet made from dead tree

    Woods used: dead tree branch for the head (no idea of the species), cedar for the handle, walnut for the wedge. I watch too many YouTube videos of people, who are much better than I am, make beautiful things. This came from another Paul Sellers video I saw of him making a joiners mallet...
  10. New sole on old wood spoke shave

    New sole on old wood spoke shave Should it stay or should it go? Here's a quick one, from this summer. I'm sure I'm not the only one, who have some old tools you just like a lot… Once in a while you have to admit, they are simply worn out… I got tired of using this again and again out of love...
  11. There is no spoon

    I think it must have been nearly two years ago at a Sonoma County Woodworkers Association meeting. There were a couple of presentations that evening, there was a presentation about a router lathe that was used to mill spindles for a spectacular cherry cradle in that year's Artistry in Wood...
  12. Dave's Shaves

    Hello All, For all you hand tool lovers out there here we have some of the finest hand tools money can buy. These spokeshaves are made by one incredible artist, Dave Wachnicki of North Conway,NH. Dave makes a spokeshave look like a work of art rather than a tool that you would use to shape...
  13. Walking stick

    I made this walking stick for my father for Christmas. It is made from white oak and walnut. Most of the work was done with handtools. Mostly done with planes, rasps and spokeshaves. The two pieces are joined with a dowel screw and epoxy. The finish is BLO and shellac. thanks for...
  14. Smooth Plane

    This is a smoothing plane I recently finished. The plane is 10 inches long, made with Bubinga cheeks and an Ash body/wedge. Overall build time was roughly 6 hours not including glue up time. It took just under 3 hours to shape the plane and just under two to make and fit the wedge. The plane...
  15. Oak garden bench

    A completed project in situ in the garden. There will be a shed on the rest of the hard standing that you can see. Although not exactly as per the plan, this bench has turned out ok with a few bodges and disappointments - in other words just like all my other projects. Several of the back slats...
  16. Liggy Block Plane

    Weighing in at 1lb 10oz's is the block plane made for the 2015 Hand Plane and Spoke Shave Swap. Its body is Lignum Vita and sloe is Brazilian Cherry. I used the Veritas Norris style adjuster with a 0-1 iron. I like that kit. Great instructions. A good friend gave me some boards and after the...
  17. Cherry Spoke Shave

    This little Cherry Shave is 9 1/2" long by 7/8" wide with a 1 3/4" iron taken from an old broken shave I picked up off Ebay for a couple bucks. I use cocobolo for the bearing plate in front of the iron to make up for the softness of the cherry. I figure it will hold up a lot longer under the...
  18. Walking staff

    Hello, I made this walking staff for a priest. The Christogram called Chi Rho is one of the oldest Greek symbols of Christianity. It took about 3 weeks from when I cut the tree to the finish. You can see the process on my instrucables. Thank you for looking.
  19. My New Shop Stool

    I built this stool in a total of about 16 hours. It was my entry in the "Shop Stool Build Off" started by Chris Wong over at FlairWoodworks. Here are the specs: Seat is a Maple Burl slab approx. 18" wide, 16" front to back, 2" thick. Purchased in California approx. 30 yrs ago, and sat in my...
  20. Boy Scout Cross-over Bridge

    My son crossed over from cub scouts to boy scouts a week ago. At the previous yearly cross over ceremonies the "bridge" used was basically a pallet with hand rails. It was very uninspiring. I volunteered, well over a year ago to build something a little more symbolic. Of course I waited until...
