  3. Precision Rule Sheath

    I wanted more protection for my rules than the paper envelopes they came with. I had some scrap mahogany strips from ripping some table legs. I ripped the maple strips from some 1/8th stock bought at Rockler. The "tenon caps" were done with the table saw and auxiliary fence. I got lucky with a...

    This was a quick project I built this week, commissioned by my grandparents for their small church. It's made from 1/2"x6 Oak, and the cross is made from Black Walnut. The lock and hinges are stock from Lowe's, and the sign holder is a modified (cut-off) brass index/door card holder I found at...
  5. Router Table circle/ring cutting jig (simple and quick)

    A neighbor stopped over and asked me to cut some rings in some 1/2" thick clear acrylic blanks. The inside edge of the rings will be lined with strip LED lights and then inserted behind the speakers on his boat. Accuracy was paramount as he wanted the outer edge of the rings to be flush with...

    I made this for my wife for Mother's Day. My stepson burned in the words. I used walnut for the handles and wormy maple for the board. I used 2 coats of mineral oil for the finish, and followed that with two more coats of a mineral oil/beeswax finish.

    Not one of my best works by far, but it was a quick and easy project that only took about 30min to accomplish. Pretty fun game if you've never played before. My next game project will be some corn hole boards!
  10. Firewood Rack out of Scrap

    I made this rack out of leftover maple and walnut from a previous project as well as some leftover 1/2" square rod. I put the bottom of the rack about 2 or 3 inches up from the bottom so that i can vacuum under the wood or remove an water from melting ice. The finish is just a natural minwax...

  13. Site Help and Suggestions
    just an idea - I think it would be a good feature to implement to show images when searching through projects. example: I just searched for coffee tables as I'm trying to come up with a design that will work for me. I wanted to see what's out there, so I searched "coffee tables" in the search...

    Hi Martin, Another thought for "All LumberJocks" page. There are lists by "most recent", "most active", and "online now" how about: "distance from my location" and/or "Online and on my buddies list"
  15. Site Help and Suggestions
    I mentioned this in a few places (I think). I would like another page on "my home" page where I (we) can keep a list of projects that I want to do in the near future. Almost like a honey-do list :) Encompassed (and added) to this functionality would be a button on the other Jock's projects...

    First, nice job with LJ. I'm definitely envious. Got any part-time paying positions on staff? <lol> Actually, this would be an enhancement to the standard formatting commands that are available. Currently, you have ! src(alt)!: href In order to make things like Blog posts more...

    The way the pulse page is today is great. I find the organization and filters are great. I would also be helpful to have a field for "Date opened" or "Date of first posting" (however you want to flag it) so that we can tell if something is very fresh, or something is coming back into cycle...
  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    So I woke up this morning with an idea. Yep, I actually had a thought in my tiny brain. I think it cost me some brain cells, but here I am and here it is. I was thinking how great it would be, and maybe this has been thought of before so sorry if it has, if several lumberjocks (however many...

    There seems to be an up-tick in spam postings on the website. I suggest a function to flag a posting as spam/inappropriate. Enough flags would either remove the listing or send it to Martin (or other moderator) for review.
