  1. My Easter Gift To Everyone

    A while ago I promised I'd give everybody an Easter Present so here you go everyone, Happy Easter. That one big black one is for Dick Cain, Happy Easter Dick. This took me about 2 weeks to complete all these eggs. Most are naturally colored with some poly wipe on them. I got a bunch of exotic...
  2. Nintendo Entertainment System #2

    I took an old Nintendo Entertainment System top loader design and gutted the parts. I then built and replicated the old classic front loader design and installed it so this thing is 100% functional. This is my 2nd iteration of building one of these and I ironed out a lot of the little stuff that...
  3. Nintendo Entertainment System #3 and #4

    I took an old Nintendo Entertainment System top loader design and gutted the parts. I then built and replicated the old classic front loader design and installed it so this thing is 100% functional. This is my 3rd iteration of these consoles. I have now added the little wood dust covers that sit...
  4. Nintendo Entertainment System

    This one took me a surprising amount of time but I am so happy to have it done! I took an old Nintendo Entertainment System top loader design and gutted the parts. I then built and replicated the old classic front loader design and installed it so this thing is 100% functional. I put hinges and...
  5. Wine Barrel End Table with Wine Rack

    This is a very simple end table buillt with a wine barrel head for the top. The legs are made from barrel staves. The shelf is also from barrel staves and it functions as a wine rack or it can hold other items. I cut a round piece of plywood and attached to the underside of the barrel head...
  6. Christmas gifts

    Well here are some of the Christmas projects I made this year. The green cabinet is for my son who is going to college next year, the matching bookshelves, (only 1 in the photos) were for my girlfriends daughters and the toy box is for my grandson. Pictures yet to come of the full length mirror...
  7. Worksharp Sharpening System Work Station

    Worksharp station modified from the plans I bought from Stumpy Nubs at: http://www.stumpynubs.com/ Mostly made of MDF and a few plywood scraps, I reversed the plan layout, made the top a little longer to accommodate my set up since I already have the work tool bar I paid $60 for. Unless you...
  8. Demilune Tables - Part One

    I love working with veneer! The possibilities are endless, and the material is relatively easy to work with. One project I make often is Hall or Demilune tables. Photo one is a table I gave to a client. Unfortunately, I didn't bother to get a better shot of it, as it's pretty nice. This one is...
  9. A 'heritage' box for my cousin

    This is big enough for most documents & photograph albums - memorabilia of sentimental / historical value - Clutter? Main structure is oak; mostly from ex school laboratory workbenches (you can see two filled screwholes on the inside!) and the lid panel in zebrano that retains its sapwood...
  10. Chinese Checker Board

    I made a Chinese Checker Board that can hang on the wall while storing marbles in the board. It's made of Maple and Redheart. Check out the YouTube video if you want to see how I did it… I also provided a drill template for anyone that wants to make one themselves...
  11. Well, It's Underway

    Inspite of the rain and thunderstorms, we are making headway. As you can see, it is a mess but there are 6" dust pipes sticking out of the ground. Some on the end may not be visable as we ran out of glue for the extension to raise it above where the cement floor will be. The crew will finish...
  12. One more sea turtle,

    Carved out of cherry wood,the eyes are wormholes that just happen to be.
  13. Cement Work (almost) Done

    Hello 'Jocks, Well, after a good nights rest, I'm ready to start another day which will be mostly cleanup after the full day yesterday of watching the cement men do their work. It is surprising just how tired I get just watching ! The cement work is pretty much complete. There is a little...
  14. My Brand New Shop is Here (laying in the driveway) !

    It has been a thankful day of rest in between the delivery of the shop materials which were put in front of the garage until tomorrow morning when the construction crew arrives. The General Contractor (Dave) said that the crew would move all of the wood, etc. so that I can use my garage. Just...
  15. It Won't Be Long Now

    The builders started bright and early and raised all four walls. They didn't have the necessary stock to frame the front door so that will get done next week. The "unloading dock" will be an 8' sliding door at the end of the driveway. In one of the pictures you can see the nice view I will...
  16. Getting There.....

    The builders started putting the roof sheathing on just before they called it quits for the day, so I expect tomorrow I'll have a roof over my head. Yesterday a fellow from the Gen'l Contractors office came out and we picked the roof shingles (to match the garage) and we picked the color of the...
  17. Ready for the Shingles

    Well, I just awoke from a "nap" and feel much invigorated. Watching this building go up is really exhausting! I went to the BORG today and got an attic ladder which the builders said that they would install for me. With that ladder, I can add storage space for all kinds of goodies that are...
  18. Big Progress Today

    Got some Hardiboard up and it looks like a real shop now (from two sides). Plans change daily and now the electrician will be here either Sat. or Mon. The painters will be here Monday, but I have decided to paint the garage myself so that I can take my time preparing it. The previous owner...
  19. The Shingles are on the Roof

    Well, the shingles are not exactly on the roof in the normal sense, however, they will be tomorrow. The skylight openings are cut and the lights themselves are ready except for the one that cracked when four of them came sliding off of the roof where the delivery men had stacked them. We have...
  20. Can't Move In Yet

    I say, running a computer cable thru conduit is a job for the young! My back is killing me! Working in a 3' trench, worming pvc around bends and under all the other pipes and cables is hard work. What I want to know is who put all that stuff under my lawn? Not to mention laying on your belly...
