  1. Projects Knife set for 2022 knife swap

    This swap was a knife swap, and I wanted to make a folding knife. I got the mechanism from Santa Fe Stoneworks and dug out some stabilized birch I have left from Minnesota. It originally came from some wind-downed trees at Timber Bay Lodge, where we stayed on vacation back when we lived in...
  2. Winter 2013/14 Tool Swap: Plumb Level and Center Marker

    The plumb level is a modernized reproduction of the plumb level as drawn in Peter Nicholson's The Mechanics Companion, 1831. My version replaces the string and lead weight with a brass rod, axle, and roller bearing. Made from cherry (frame), walnut (axle & plumb bob), and holly (center mark)...
  3. Mallet made for WoodWorkJosh (Surprise Swap)

    I made this mallet for WoodWorkJosh as part of the Winter 2017 Tool Swap. The woods used were maple and purple heart and the handle is walnut.

  4. Dove Tail Tool Set for the 2017 Summer Swap

    To start with let me say that I have never cut a dove tail in my life. I love the look of them, but they are too much like work to make. I joined the 2017 LJ summer tool swap, for my first swap attempt and hope I didn't disappoint the poor guy that got my tools, ki7hy, Dave. I built a set of...
  5. Adjustable Drawer Bottom Grooving Plane for Summer Swap 2017

    This is an adjustable grooving plane for drawer bottoms or wherever you need a groove. The cutter is 1/4 inch. So it cuts a 1/4 inch groove up to 1/2 inch deep. I made this tool for GR8HUNTER, in the Summer 2017 Surprise tool Swap. It was really fun.
  6. Winding Sticks for Summer 2017 Suprise Swap

    This is a pair of Winding Sticks that I made for the Summer 2017 Suprise tool Swap. They are made out of Bolivian rosewood with hard maple inlay. I also used maple dowel to connect them together when not in use. These were made for GR8HUNTER in the swap.
  7. Wood tools used for Antler carving

    This isn't truly woodworking but I did use the same tool set for these knife handles as for my wood carvings.

  9. Artist Box

    I saw this idea on Lumberjocks and thought it would be a great project to make for a friend. Something that is fairly compact that she can take around and setup to paint when she feels inspired. The box is actually made of poplar. I chose poplar simply because I like the look of it, its easy...

    This is a veneer hammer I made for Bondo in the "Surprise Tool Swap" Here is the letter I sent with it: Bondogaposis, A while back I did a project at work that utilized some 5/8"x 3-1/2" x ¼" (approx. measures) brass pieces as decorative elements in a floor at Crystals Mall - City Center, Las...

  12. Box swap - Marquetry Box for jeffswildwood

    Here's the box that I made jeffswildwood for the box swap. I used a photo that I found online of Patos Island up in the San Juan Islands as the basis for this box.

  13. 2018 Mallet Swap

    My recipient this year was Dave Kelley (LJ: KelleyCrafts). The design is from an old issue of Wood Magazine. There is a name for this type of glue up but I can't remember it. Lines were burned with pieces of Formica which I prefer over wire. I made a matching awl for a bonus project. Materials...

  16. Marking Gauge for Swap

    Posting this early because I will be out of town for a couple weeks. This is the gauge I made for JordanP, padauk and poplar. Iron is made from a hex key. If I were to do anything different, I would cut the round mortise then glue on the padauk with just a small hole for the iron but live and...
  17. Oddball Marking Gauge for the Swap

    I had a blast designing and executing this tool. These swaps are are good way to make you gear up to do good work. For this swap I thought the durability of purpleheart would be a boon…it was, once the infernal thing was done. I have issues making a perfect "showpiece" tool…I can never bring...

    This is a gauge that I made for Tim, as my contribution to the swap. Very old rosewood, that's been waiting about 50 years for a project, and brass. The blade was made from a worn out disposable planer blade. It gave me an opportunity to put my new to me milling machine to work.

    I made three gauges for the swap. I sent a Walnut one to Matt (Only Just Me). The design is based off the ones at Hamiltontools.com. The blades were bought from there as well. The other inserts, screws and bits all came from McMaster Carr. These are my first attempts at gauges, so I wanted...
  20. Inlaid Jewelry Box and Marking Gauge for 2020 Surprise Swap

    The 2020 Surprise Swap was amazing - some true works of art came out of it. This one feels a little light weight, and if I participate again I'll need to up my game. My contributions went to George (Woodmaster1), a master craftsman with an incredible gallery of projects. I made a jewelry box...
