  1. First Ever Inlay - Wooden Dog Pendants with Gorilla Glue

    I had no idea what I wanted to do for this challenge when I first heard about it. I just knew that I wanted to start participating more in the community so I'd feel more connected and less like a young person cut off from all the usual wild young person activities. I'm pretty new in general to...
  2. Burl slab motorcycle stand; 1st commissioned piece

    Some good friends of ours had recently purchased a rustic steel nuts, bolts and gear piece of motorcycle artwork. They've seen some of my other work and commissioned me to build a nice base for it to sit on his desk. I immediately thought of a burl slab and got in touch with Greg Dahl over at...
  3. Wooden Crates

    Made crates for the daughter's "room remodel". Made about 8 out of cedar and used the steel wool in vinegar treatment to get the rustic look.
  4. Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair Recliner

    This is my Morris Chair. It is made from pine that I got for free from a friend of a friend's old bookshelf. When I got the wood some of it was badly warped, there were a few screw holes in a bunch of places that I had to plug, and it was discolored from years of use so I pre-sanded everything...
  5. CD Storage Cabinet

    Finally done, my CD Storage Cabinet, made out of pine that I stained with the famous homemade vinegar and steel wool recipe. It was fun to build from scratch without any plan. Thanks for looking and I hope you'll like it. Find more photos and all construction details from this page of my blog...
  6. Walnut 4-Pot Herb Tray

    Fairly straightforward project here. One piece of walnut, routered out, chiseled, sanded, and finished. Never having made anything with a router before, this is my first project using one. I love my new Bosch 1617-variable speed router! I purchased the combo. and used the plunge router base...
  7. Cutting Board & Serving Tray: Curly Maple, Walnut, Pink Lyptus

    I made this to be both a cutting board and a serving tray, taking the same care on both sides. The side with my personal brand on it is meant to be the "utilitarian" cutting board side. Board Details: Wood Species: curly maple/tiger maple, walnut, pink lyptus Dimensions: 15-15/16" long, by...
  8. 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. You get the home made stain made by soaking a steel wood pad in white vinager and a bit of balsamic vinager (to get it darker) for three weeks. On this particular project I added one...
  9. My First Picture Frame

    Being new to woodworking, everything takes me a loooooong time. This frame was certainly no exception. I spent probably 40+hours on it, from designing it, to getting materials, to replanning, reworking, working, and finishing. I learned quite a few things along the way though, including what did...
  10. Kentucky Derby Drink Serving Tray

    Mint Julep, anyone? Just finished attaching the handles to take this to a Kentucky Derby Party in a few minutes! This serving tray, or drink tray measures 12-inches x 16.5-inches (plus the handles) x 2.5-inches tall and is made of wood species that are all native to Kentucky: 4/4 Walnut, White...
  11. Treasure chest shadow box

    Was asked to build a shadow box to go with an already purchased reassure chest. They wanted it removable with storage below it for retirement certificates etc. Also needed to look like they were built together. I was really please with how this turned out and they were too. Definitely a fun...
  12. END TABLES AND TV STAND FOR THE COLLEGE STUDENT

    Well, here is the latest project out of the garage shop. These we made from native red oak with minwax red oak stain and poly. Two end table 18"x24"x24" the TV stand is 20"x48"x24". It's all pocket hole construction. To top it all off we used an opaque solid surface to protect the tops...
  13. First Coffee Table (japanese inspired)

    Hey Jocks, I'm a new woodworker. This is my first ever coffee table build. Built out of box store pine. The legs are laminated 2×4s, finish on top is pre-conditioner, then apple cider vinegar + steel wool coat (see underside of table) then Provincial stain and one coat of Poly. Legs are white...
  14. Growth chart #7

    Another growth chart done, this one was a little simpler. Started with a pine board and once the numbers were carved down and the writing was carved I stained it with tea and hit it with vinegar and steel wool to age it. It turned a nasty grey that I didn't like much so I sanded it back so it...
  15. Hand Carved Welcome Sign, Vinegar and Steel wool stain finish

    Here is my latest hand carved sign. This time I wanted to darken the pine, so I used a vinegar and steel wool stain that I had mixed up about 5-6 months ago. I did perform a test on a piece of scrap and it produced a wonderful brown colour. Here you see how the stain reacted with the white...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    I hope I got this into the right forum. OK… I realize that this question could potentially start safety vs. utility arguments so lets all promise to be kind. I'm asking for personal experiences about why one does or does not use steel wool for finishing at the lathe. I'm seeing conflicting...
  17. Finishing
    Hi y'all, I'm new to this site and forums in general. I've accidentally dyed my whole floor purple, I had it sanded professionally then I applied a steel wool and vinegar stain to the wood hoping for a light grey. I didn't test patch, I didn't water down, I should have, we all make mistakes...
  18. Finishing
    I am finishing my Hickory counter top with waterlox original and have run into an issue. The first and second coat I applied went on just fine. I followed all of the recommendations from Waterlox and made sure to sand down my countertop and clean up with Mineral spirits. I allowed the surface...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi All: I have a clinical case of the scratches on my table saw top. As a newbie with OCD and that new-tool romanticism, I've fallen in the pitfall in freaking out over its my tool's first battle wounds (a small staple holding a UPC code on the side of a panel of MDF that I didn't notice). I've...
