  1. Homemade Router Guide Bushing Pin Wrench

    I don't know about you, but for me holding guide bushings while I thread the ring nut from under is a pain, particularly the smaller ones ! For my wrench I've chosen a HDF floor board for its density and its durability and drilled a 3/4" (18mm) hole using a spade bit at the drill press. Then...
  2. Tap Handles

    I made a set of tap handles for a friend of mine (pictured). I turned the first out of a chunk of white oak he gave me. It had a beautiful heartwood/sapwood split down the middle of it. The second one is a checkered-style handle, made of maple and mahogany. Each row consists of 24 pieces of...
  3. Wooden Bolt

    This project started as a desire to learn how to cut threads into wood. After practicing a bit and constructing a simple jig to hold round stock in my vise for threading, I was able to create a threaded wood rod. From there, I thought it would be fun to turn the threaded rod into a toy (or...
  4. Mmmm Beer (Coatracks)

    I had collected these local beer taps many years ago and one of my sons has asked me many times to make him something from them. Since I don't have a bar in the house, they sat unused all this time. I finally set about trying to design a project around them, in particular the Keith's IPA one...
  5. Gwiz Tap Handle

    This is the tap handle I made for my Dad's Christmas present. The Gwiz Family Tap handle. The lighter wood is Beach Wood, the darker wood is Mahogany and a Purple Heart collar. You can see the making of photos here: http://www.gwizphoto.com/woodworking/#/gwiz-tap-handle/
  6. Keg tap handles

    A buddy of mine brews his own beer (great beer btw) and mentioned that he was looking for some tap handles that he could write on to identify what brews he had on tap. I decided to help him out… Check out more details on my blog: http://www.woodworkingfourdummies.com/blog/keg-tap-handle-diy...
  7. Michigan U.P tap handle

    I recently had a coworker leave for a promotion. I had worked with him for several years and wanted to make him a going way gift. He does some home brewing & is a native of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. In the past I have seen him get a little perturbed when there would be a rendering of the...

  9. "Fairy Log" Xmas present fun with epoxy and old rotted oak stump

    Video here! I got a fresh jug of epoxy! This is basically me playing with it and some pearl pigments usually used for automotive paints. Quite a while ago I grabbed this oak log from the family farm. It has been sitting out for years after it was cut up from some fallen limbs for firewood. I...
  10. One down, two to go

    I finally got around to making a tap handle which was my excuse for buying a mini lathe in the first place. I had to get my skills up to where I felt I wouldn't ruin the piece of alligator juniper this handle is made of. I got the wood at World of Wood in Albuquerque NM when I was visiting...
  11. Pack of Howling Dogs

    For our daughter's 1st birthday, I decided to draft up a party favor toy for the babies coming to celebrate. The baby's been copying our dog howling so thought it'd be fun to capture that moment in the toys! The rolling dog toys are made out of poplar, unfinished. Not sure if our dog approves...

  12. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I haven't posted on LJ's in quite awhile for several reasons, none of which reflect badly on the site at all. I've been in a shop "transition" from one building on our property to another which is taking me a whole lot longer to get done than I thought it would (old bones can't do as much...

    Design ideas, need some feedback OK, so yeah - another blog about a router table, but since I'm going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I've had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2...

    Design Plans Hello. These are the plans I have for a new workbench. I think I have decided that now is the time to build a bench I won't need to remake. I have done lots of studing on workbench designs and could not decide between the German bench and the Roubo because of the leg vise. I had...

    Top&Legs Jointed, Starting to layout the Wooden Screws. A while black I posed a forum topic asking for folks advise on how to use this piece of wood for a workbench. A cabinet maker I bought my band saw from gave it to me for free. It was made from two slabs from a green oak tree so it...

    up to now First time blogging… But, the activity I'm on now seems like a good topic. I'm building two beds. I need to join angle irons to wood for bed rails and center beam re-enforcement. I need to join angle iron to angle iron to form a T beam. Now, I've drilled into metal more than a...

    Vape pen stand As an amputee I have intense phantom pain that only a relief vape can stop. If you lay them on their side all the juice pools on the side instead of at the base of the wick. The vape pens themselves have a small, tippy, footprint that easily falls over even if your hand is steady...

    I have a Craftsman 113.12171 Table Saw. The blade raises and lowers fine but I can not get the blade to go completely into the table. The lowest I can get the blade is 1/16 inch above the table. This is not a huge problem but is very frustrating. Does anyone have any ideas how I can try to...
  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hope I'm posting this in the right forum. Does anyone know where to purchase railroad spikes that have already been drilled and tapped for mounting on coat racks? I'd try to drill and tap them myself, but with my limited knowledge of this process I thought I'd start by looking for something...
