    I made this wine rack out of Mahogany for my nieces wedding at the end of February 2015. I saw a picture on pinterest of a similar one and thought I would try to recreate it from the picture. OK.. I made lots of mistakes.. lots. but I think it turned out well and I like the way it looks. The...
  5. quirky bench

    Someone gave us a nice glass top table and some crappy chairs. I got rid of the crappy chairs so we needed something else to sit on.

  6. Maple Shelving - conquering maple!

    I have been experimenting with finishing maple for at least 4 weekends or more. I am so happy with the current results that I consider this a finished project - a project in learning how to finish. I owe it all to lumberjocks. Because of this website, I have started to venture into hardwoods...

  10. Home Made Stain From Steel Wool and Vinegar

    Here I want to share the dirt cheap home-made stain I used on the two country kitchen credenzas I just finished.

  15. The Standard Issue Candle Holder

    Here's where it all started. Three years ago I was reading an article in Woodworker's Journal about building candle holders and this design popped into my head.

  17. Marking knife with a couple of twists

    Hi LJs, I wanted to share a couple little tricks I incorporated into my favorite marking knife. First, humor me and shape your hand as if you are holding a pen or (duh) a marking knife. If you look at the place between your fingers where the knife/pen would go, it is anything but the shape we...
