  1. Projects Craftsman style small part tool sled

    I make a lot of Craftsman style inlays (or mosaics) with lots of little pieces. A small parts sled will make cutting the little pieces much easier and safer. This started out as a basic build of Woodsmith's Small Parts Sled project that I mad a bit more Craftsman style with oak, walnut, wood...
  2. Side Table - Special Height

    This project is pretty late, made back in mid-summer right after we had our baby, Lily. We were in the hospital for a full week, all went well in the end, mama and baby are perfect. When we got back though I was itching to do something after a week of sitting in a hospital. Our first night at...
  3. Taper Jig

    Some time ago I decided to make adjustable taper jig for table saw. I used simple project Woodsmith plans Taper jig.The base and fence are made from 3/4 plywood, stop block from sapele. For the making jig needed 64" T-trak, two aluminium Hold-downs. Ranner made from cherry. I think that in...
  4. Oak Coffee Table

    I have just completed what is definitely my favorite project to date: a simple coffee table of red oak. The whole construction phase was very enjoyable and only took about a week (though finishing took much longer). I am very proud of how well all the little details turned out in this piece; I...
  5. Mahogany Mission Style Desk

    I needed a desk and the ones I saw on display at Target had broken hinges and the MDF was chipping off. So I did the math in my head and said to myself, "Self, I could probably buy the wood to make the desk and still have money left over." I think I made the right choice. It was an excuse to...
  6. Taper Jig

    While building the 3-in-1 crib/bed for my newest Grandson, instead of using the bandsaw to cut the tapers, I opted to build a taper jig. After doing many searches here on LJ's, and out there in cyberspace, I came to the conclusion to build this one (with a few of my own additions), from August...
  7. Flip-Top Toolbench

    Based largely on the Shopnotes article, supporting a miter saw and a planer. I learned an important lesson in reading instructions thoroughly: I didn't cut the slots for the side-locks or drill the holes for the axle before assembly, so I had to kludge them in later (I cut the slots with a few...
  8. Tapering Jig

    My new tapering jig! Made from 3/4" plywood and walnut scraps for the fence and the runner underneath. Used it to cut some tapers on these table legs and it worked out very well. Hope you enjoy and comments/questions are always welcome.
  9. Mediocre Solid Oak end tables

    Please excuse my crappy pictures. The lighting is awful and I spend money on tools instead of cameras Here are a pair of end tables I made for our bedroom. My wife insisted again, they be without drawers. I get the feeling maybe one of her many siblings locked her in a drawer at a young age :)...
  10. Walnut & Padauk Side Table – “Defiance”

    Yay!!! I am beyond thrilled with how this Walnut & Padauk side table turned out! I painstakingly chiseled every joint by hand and ALMOST enjoyed every second of it! ;) This was my first time working with Padauk and I must say, for a flatboarder, it was extremely workable. My only complaint would...
  11. Black Cherry Dresser

    This is my first woodworking project. My wife and I are expecting our first child within the next month, so I thought I would make use of all the tools I've been buying since we moved into our first home together (and perhaps somewhat, maybe just a little bit, justify my purchase of these tools...
  12. My second Mitred box

    This wasn't done with the EZ Mitre method. One of the reasons I make the smaller items is to improve my techniques. Small items really show the imperfections. So you have to get very good at finishing. That being said, I didn't do very well on my finishing on this. I believe I have learned from...
  13. Outdoor Table in Jatoba

    Jatoba, loose tenons, and Teak oil finish. I wanted a small table to go by the steamer chairs at the pool, and logged into LJ for some insperation. What a resource! In minutes I had found Dorje's table: and I knew I wanted a smaller version. I had some Jatoba in the shop, and Dorje said I...
  14. Jig Box

    I wanted to try something new and the top of this box is the result. I was experimenting with tapers figuring I could make a clock face out of contrasting woods and it would look kinda spiffy. To do this I needed to cut a bunch of pieces at a 30 degree angle. So I made a jig and grabbed a...
  15. Taper Jig

    I made the taper jig from woodsmith plans. The hold down clamps are made from cherry. The miter slot slide is 3/8 X 3/4 X 32 oak. The t-track is from kreg. The stop at the end is poplar screwed into a 1/4-20 insert.
  16. Table saw tapering jig (why I needed a circle jig)

    Table saw tapering jig why I needed a circle jig… One morning my daughter said to me she needed a wedge to hold the door when she took out her bicycle, so I went to the work shop to make her one, only this time I decided to do it safe… So I made a jig for tapering cuts - no more freehand...
  17. Rolling Pins

    I set out to make some rolling pins for family members as Christmas gifts, and just finished the last one today! Oh well, better late than never. On the first couple, I simply did my best to drill a perfectly straight 12 inch long hole, but even with a drill press it never came out in the...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello All, I've read through review after review, thought about what I will be doing with it and now find myself in a (as my son Paul would say) a 'pickle'. I have saved up my pennies and will be buying a table saw (probably tomorrow if I can figure out which one)! I've narrowed it down to 5...
  19. Jigs & Fixtures
    Over the weekend I needed a tapering jig. I ususally purchase stuff like this because I want to spend time building other things but this was too easy not to make. I will be adding a lip on the end of the left leg. The end of the board, which is being tapered, will rest on this piece. The extra...
  20. Jigs & Fixtures
    I have need of 2×4s tapered to provide a level frame for installing a Screen-tight system on an existing porch. The porch has 2×4 bases in each of 7 sections, installed horizontally with the 4" dimension being vertical. At the ends of each section are vertical 2×4s extending from the floor to...
