  1. Another cutting board

    Another cutting board, but this time for my brother's birthday. Made from walnut and maple with a salad bowl finish. And yet another shameless plug for my cutting board program. :) http://lumberjocks.com/projects/11372
  2. a Layout Square With Maple and Walnut

    The layout square is the predecessor tot he carpenter's square as we know it today and this simple design goes back pre-history. They are found in every culture and time. almost all built the same way just different decorations and sizes to match the culture and use. we decided to make this out...

  4. L-Square Stop & Depth Gauge

    L-square Stop - Depth Gauge - Table Saw Setup Tool I designed and built my L-square edge stop around 1984, when I became frustrated with using stops for setting up stair steps for the process. I wanted one which was quick to install and easy to use (e.g., moved smoothly along the edge). The...
  5. Wooden Shop Squares

    Squares of all kinds are an important shop tool. but sometimes just the exercise of building your own tool helps you better understand that tool on a deeper level. A couple months ago Chris Schwarz over at Pop Wood Magazine got my attention when he started blogging about a square Patrick Leach...
  6. Another new box for another square

    So, I have a Starrett six inch double square. And any of you who have a Starrett square know they are great squares but they come in a card board box. Always seemed kind of cheap so I decided to make a new one. It matches the case for my combo square set I built a few weeks back. It's made from...
  7. Ice Cream Scoop

    I actually found some time to turn some Christmas presents before it was to late!! Main wood is paduk. Inlay is 1/16" maple sandwiched between two 1/32" black dyed veneers. The ellipse is cut on a table saw sled at 25 degrees. I don't cut all the way through the blank so I have some alignment...
  8. First Coffee Table - Recycled wood

    Made from wood of an abused (and well used) futon. Just needed a little something for my little house at the time.
  9. Tools - Sliding Square

    Walnut and brass sliding square, Made a couple of these but forgot to keep one for myself. The wingut loosens the rule allowing it to slide back and forth in the stock. Lock it back down and it is actually pretty square - not square enough for NASA, but good enough for me. Fun project that is...
  10. Scroll saw projects

    Here are a few of my scroll saw projects. I really love my dewalt scroll saw. I tried a few others, but I was sold on the ease of sawing inside cuts.
  11. New 'Diamond' clocks

    A few new clocks all in the 'diamond' shape, all out of maple primarily. Some dots are made from walnut, the rest are from wood from a cigar box by Acid cigars. That's also waht the circle in the third one is made from.
  12. A square from a brass ruler

    Another use for the brass rulers I've been getting cheaply. I wanted a medium size square and this fit the bill. I simply cut a scrap piece of mahogany and carefully cut a kerf just less than the width of the ruler with my band saw. Then I widened the kerf with my toolbox saw. The ruler was...
  13. English Layout Square

    I saw this square at the Woodworking in America Conference this past fall and thought it was a beautiful tool. I took several photos with the intention of making one of my own but managed to lose them. Fortunately Christopher Schwarz wrote up this square as a project in the December 2010...
  14. T-square

    i made this one over at my dad's shop. it is made from jatoba,the wood for the blade was resawed thin on the band saw and evened out by running it through the drum sander, and the dado was done on the table saw very carefully so the joint was a tight press fit that is also held together with...
  15. Dragon

    I took a scroll saw class at WoodCraft a while back. In the class we all made this dragon.
  16. Lath Console Table

    I was commissioned to make this table after the client saw another table I built out of lath strips for a design contest (a pic is in the Reader's Gallery of the October issue of Fine Woodworking). Along with the table, he wanted the sort of write-up a gallery would do explaining how the table...
  17. Crosscut sled

    I don't know why I didn't make this years earlier. I always made due trying to line up a straightedge on a pencil line and using a circular saw, but it never, and I mean NEVER worked out to be square enough. After trolling the web for ideas I finally settled on this design. I can crosscut up...
  18. Wooden Hair Clips

    First, I started by re-sawing some cutoffs and turning blocks I had around the shop. This was mulberry, walnut, sycamore, pine and some dogwood. I passed each piece through the planer to give it a good gluing surface. Then arranged the pieces and glued them together. After the glue dried I...
  19. Squares everywhere 2020 Surprise Swap

    Had some fun making squares. I'm not real artsy like a lot of guys here so straight lines work for me. I stumbled across several squares and variations and I've been wanting to try some precision work. The two wooden squares are interpretations of 16th century Melencolia (Honduran Rosewood &...
  20. Shop Made Try Square

    Just a simple project for this morning that I made it from scrap 1/2" BB Ply. I got the idea from an article in one of the woodworking mags, I believe it was FWW. In that article, the author used acrylic for his squares but I didn't want to go through all of that hence the BB Ply. Also, I...
