  1. Cello Stand

    As a follow-up on my last project post here is another music related project. My daughter sent me a photograph of a cello stand she found for sale on the net. Can you build one of these?? I had some 5/4 oak reclaimed from some large shipping crates, so here goes. I glued up three layers to...
  2. Laborious Lighthouse

    I was out in my woodshop looking at all of my scrap and decided I would build a lighthouse for beside the fireplace. It was an adventure. There were many angle calculations, bevel cuts, delicate details and a lot of patience involved. I built a jig to cut the base at about a 3 degree taper over...
  3. Tapered Display Tower - Beetle-Kill Pine

    Technically, it's just about' finished. May get one more coat of spar varnish. May get 600 grit wet-sanded. May get paste wax applied. May get nothing more, in the finishing department. AND … the 1/4" baltic birch ply that I used as backer did NOT take the stain well, so I'll either re-do...
  4. End tables a much need

    Darling wife needed a couple new simple end tables for the Florida room so I thought I'd knock these out in a couple weekends before i start tackling a long awaited dresser and bed side tables. Wanted to test a tapering jig for the legs and gel stain and poly over poplar tops. She wanted...
  5. Jupiter Side Table

    The design I saw for this table called it a Jupiter style table I don't know why but it sure was fun to make. It's not obvious but the top is book joined and the stretchers are lapped and mortised and tenoned to the legs. The woods are walnut and cherry with a boiled linseed finish...
  6. Curling trophies

    I made these silly little trophies for a curling get together my wife and I had with some friends. We brought a few of our couple friends out to try curling. Those of you in or near Canada probably know what curling is. If not, pay attention to the upcoming Winter Olympics. We had a brief...
  7. Federal Table

    My Federal table is complete except for the hardware! Big thanks to Tommy MacDonald for the inspiration to create this Federal table. In case you don't know, Tommy is a graduate of the North Bennett Street School and is a master of the Federal style. I learned a TON of new skills on this project...
  8. Hall Table

    Thought that I better make another post before I disappear for a few months. We are moving into our coldest months now, so it is time to hitch up the caravan(trailer) and head north to a warmer climate. Will return in time for Christmas. However, that is not what this post is about. A couple of...
  9. Side tables of beetle kill pine

    While browsing the pine stock at Menard's (my local big-box home center) I happened upon a nice stack of beetle kill pine. I picked through the pile and bought all the nicely colored stuff and waited for a project to come along. Shortly after that, the wife asked for a couple side tables for the...
  10. Tall side table

    Side table made of poplar with tapered legs
  11. Maple and Walnut Inlayed Hall Table

    My mother in law had asked me to repair an old table she picked up at a flea market. I was unable to repair it because the leg was broken, piece missing and it was turned. I felt bad I couldn't fix it so for Christmas I designed and made this maple and walnut hall table. It has tapered legs...
  12. Nesting Tables

    My wife had (notice the word "had") three Nesting Tables made of pine. One of the legs broke off the smallest one and she started acting like, well those of you who are married know… anyway I told her I'd make her a new one. And you can't make 1 oak table to replace 1 pine table, so I had to...
  13. Hall table

    This is a table I made from plans I bought at Woodcraft. Can't begin to tell you now who put the plans out. Solid walnut except for the drawer bottoms. I screwed up the drawers and ended up using pocket holes to build them instead of locking rabit joints. Otherwise I think I did ok with the...
  14. Sofa side table

    Here are a few pics of my sofa side table as it progressed through the build, and the finished piece. Hope you like it.
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    So my better half wants a new kitchen table and we both decided we like this style of table: However, I don't own a lathe and pricing the work locally to have four legs would be $280 after tax. Now I already have some nice, thick, clear pine that I could make tapered legs out of as an...
  16. Jigs & Fixtures
    After a lot of searching about tapered staves (like for buckets) and segmented rings for turning I began to realize that there is an overlooked common element that is very useful for cutting accuracy and simplicity of layout. Both types, staves and segments, are symmetric about a centerline. So...
  17. Blogs
    Lumber Rack I learned a long time ago that there are many ways to do just about anything imaginable. Some work better than others - but the main thing is that they do the job. I've decided to write a brief blog from time to time describing something that's 'worked for me' in my shop. If you...
  18. Blogs
    Templates So, between TreeFrogFurniture.BlogSpot.com and Robert Lang's book "More Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture", I decided that the corner of our dining room could stand an accent table. TreeFrog has built two different styles, so I "borrowed" the plans for the one I liked (he posted...

    The Beginning Good morning folks. I recently got a commission to build a harvest table for some of my fine relatives who are in the process of building a new home. They have the same affection for heart pine that I have so that's what we're going use for stock. They recently sold a beautiful...

    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...
