  1. Small table top bookshelf

    Got the idea for this from one of those weekend project type books. Didn't like the radius'd ends they showed so I made the ends into the profiles of two mountains I see almost every day, Mt Rainier and Mt Baker. For fun I added the elevations to each side. Australian blackwood and I forget what...
  2. Raised Herb Garden

    This is a raised herb garden I built for a friend (actually built two). Made it out of cedar, and used pocket screws as well as deck screws. It measures 60" long x 18" deep x 40" tall.
  3. Dolphin

    A stylized leaping dolphin in walnut. This is 12 inches tall, roughly 1.5 times the size of the original pattern. Pattern is from "The Art of Stylized Wood Carving" by Charles Solomon and David Hamilton.
  4. How to make a wooden flower.

    You need a decorative element on a present? I made this flower as decoration for a present. Tools and Materials: A plane. For example a Stanley No.4. A glue gun with glue sticks. A pair of scissors. A piece of wood. Instructions: Set your plane up for creating relative thick...
  5. "Rough Cut" Wall Cabinet

    I can't believe it's been almost 600 days since I posted a project so I thought I'd toss this one out there. This is my version of Tommy Mac's wall cabinet. I used cherry wood and through dovetails instead of the half- blind Tommy uses. This was fun to build and learned a few things. Next...
  6. Oriental Barnwood Mirror

    Needed a mirror frame so my wife suggested an oriental one. This one is made out of Douglas fir barn wood. No fancy joinery, just screws on the back with some plywood to reinforce the mirror. Our barn cat was helping with the pictures.
  7. Massive cherry stump table

    This piece is 22 tall with a 20X24 top. I had to remove some material from the inside of the bottom to get it under 150lbs so it wouldnt have to go freight. The black discoloration is from metal, a few strands of fence.
  8. Tripod Table

    Tripod table. Made from Mahogany, finished with shellac and wax. See more work at my website and my blog.

  10. Bandsaw/Drill Press Work Table

    This is my bandsaw/drill press table. I like to use this smaller bandsaw for doing smaller projects because I like to leave my bigger bandsaw with a resaw blade installed at all times. I put a vice on the work table and I made it so I can pull the bandsaw in and out of the table by using 2...
  11. Handtool Cart

    It has been a long time since I posted anything. In the past 6 months we moved so I have been working on setting up my shop again. In the new place I don't have as many work tops as before so my workbench has been littered with my tools and boards and chips. I decided to make this because I...
  12. Quartersawn White Oak Arts and Crafts Tabletop Sliding Bookrack Stickley Reproduction

    About 6 years ago while surfing eBay I stumbled upon a cool bookrack auction. It was a marked Gustav Stickley bookrack. I saved it to my favorites and watched it sell. It closed at $800. Saving the pictures and dimensions from ebay for a later project, I sketched it in Autocad. About 2 months...
  13. Mesquite Bowl

    This chunk of mesquite was cut just above the root. As a result,it has quite a bit of burl grain in it. There was a limb that had grown out very low on the tree and it gave the piece a very interesting crotch grain effect to part of it. The last two pics show the piece as I got it. As with all...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    I'm building a desk top out of Brazilian leopardwood and wanted to know how resistant it is to sun fading.
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hey All, visual in link below to assist… I am working on the design of a table and am going to use some pretty thick lumber for the base of it but am looking for a way to make the table top appear thicker than it really is at the edges. I am not exactly sure on the best way to go about doing...
  16. Finishing
    Hi, I'm attempting my first DIY project. I decided to restain my table top and I'm stuck. I'm not sure of the type of wood. It's an old table and after sanding down it was a very light colored wood. I used an orbital sander to sand it down starting with 100 grit and working my way to 220. I used...
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    My daughter and son in law would like me to build a kitchen table similar to the one pictured below. They like the farmhouse look with the grooves between the boards and the rough sawn look. They also like the wood which I can't identify. I have made large tabletops before but spent hours making...
  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    When I made my Cubicle cutting boards, the hardest part was clamping for the glue up. I tried making various jigs, making the boards in sections, even tried rub joints, but no matter what, everything did a lot of slip-sliding when I applied pressure to the clamps on the final glue up. I have...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    After having my tools in limbo for oh so many years, I moved to a farm where I have a large workspace and I'm setting up my man-cave once again. But the storage time was not easy on the iron table tops. I was pleasantly surprised how really easy it was to merely hand sand off the rust and...
  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am a software engineer by profession and work from home. At present my workdesk consists of a GeekDesk frame which can be raised and lowered at will (which I do rarely). The top is just three pieces from an old Ikea kitchen table (veneered MDF). Crappy. Been meaning to make a new nice top...
