  1. Wooden Knob Templates

    So I decided that I needed to make some wooden knobs for my router table (build in progress). The first picture is of my initial results. The four prong knobs came out reasonably well for someone who just eyeballed it, but the five-star knobs….....lets just say that my eyeball calibration is...
  2. Wahoo (aggravation) Board Game

    My in-laws are crazy about games, any kind of game. Last winter I was introduced to what they simply called "the board game", which turned out to be Wahoo, or Aggravation as most know it. I was hooked immediately. The board they used was an old sheet of T1-11 siding with holes drilled through...
  3. Wife's Christmas This Year

    Made bowls with the router for gifts this year and this is the only one I remembered to get pics of. Oh well, I made sure my wife got the nicest one anyway. Maple and walnut. Used the CMT bowl bit and extension. And my wife loves it!
  4. GaryK's design - My results

    Here is the link to GaryK's original post the same design. While I didn't have any snakewood (or have seen it for that matter), I thought it worked well with some other species. I'll be curious to see which holds an edge the best. These are quite simple to make and only require a bit more...
  5. Mule Head Boot Jack

    I've been a MIA Lumberjock for awhile now, so I'm jumping back in. I made about 40 "head" of mules last year for Christmas presents and sold a bunch to subsidize a new planer. I have mule loving friends around the world and many wanted one of these "jacks". The jack helps to remove boots or...
  6. Who Needs a CNC? Carving a Sign Free Hand with a Router..and FIRE

    Hey guys, I wanted my logo for my shop/website/channel to be something physical tangible while at the same time trying something fun. I used Ridgid's new trim router and one of the weed burner/baby flamethrowers to free hand carve a few signs out a walnut crotch and a maple burl I had laying...
  7. nutcracker for my niece

    I built this nutcracker for my niece who is on the Columbia Quad Squad roller derby team. To get the body diameter I wanted it took 4 3/4" boards glued up. The plan I used called for turning then cut the head off and bandsaw the slot in the center, I split one board on the bandsaw , cut the...
  8. First Shop Jig...of sorts

    I've been playing with boxes recently and was having trouble bringing my 1/4" plywood down to 1/8" to fit into slots. I went off to buy a zero clearance plate for my tablesaw but the local Woodcraft did not have what I needed. So I bought a piece of coated plywood (Green in the picture) and...
  9. Last Man Standing peg jumping game

    This was a very quick prototype build. Small piece of pine and a template. Z spray shellac to finish. Some of these builds tell you to use 1/8" bit, or 7/64" bit for golf tees. I have found this way too small, at least for the cheap tees I have found and use. 11/64" seems to be the right...
  10. Next Step.

    Well the Next Step in the Cheese Board Saga had to be a step.. logical once you think about it.. This board is made up of laminations of Camphor Laurel, Purple Heart and Tasmanian Blackwood. I then used the Incra Mitre Express to cut three pieces from the centre of the board at 30 degrees and...
  11. Oak Dining Chairs

    I built this set of six oak chairs as part of the new dining set I am making for our house. I steam bent the back splats to match the rear legs. The legs were trimmed to shape on a custom router template sled. You can watch the build in Episodes 5 and 6 of my Woodcademy show on Amazon Prime...
  12. Dovetail template

    Dovetail template for softwood, 1:6 slope. Adapted from previous work found on Lumberjocks and online.
  13. Bookshelf with Art Deco Pattern Carved in The Side

    This build was for a client earlier this year. She had this pattern on some wallpaper and loved it so we incorporated the pattern into the bookshelf sides and carved it out with a V bit If you are interested in its creation feel free to watch the video Thanks for watching Brian Benham
  14. Luxury Dog Beds

    I made 6 of these dog beds from birch plywood. I made mdf templates to run a flush-cut router bit against. Very simple construction just glued and screwed at the corners and along the base. The finish is hand painted water based paint as it will most likely be chewed by dogs. The customer wanted...
  15. Meat Shredders (set of 5)

    This is one of those projects. A fun idea that I wanted to share. If I had taken more pictures I could have put together a nice blog. If I had pictures of the finished project I could post a project. I finally dug out the one set we have and took some pictures of that. I'll never have all 5 at...
  16. Circle Template

    I find that I draw a lot of circles and arcs in the shop. Every time I need a circle, I scurry around looking for the can or jar or bottle or washer or something that is just the right diameter. Usually, I settle for something close that, if I angle my pencil just right, will allow me to...
  17. Bandsaw template follower

    My version of a pattern follower for my 14" Rikon bandsaw. Instead of just clamping the follower in place, I used the rip guide by laying it on the backside lip of the fence and attaching my follower. It allows minute adjustment to the blade depth from the template, by moving the fence. It makes...
  18. A car hauler for the Fleet

    After creating the fleet it seemed logical to tie it all together with a car hauler. The design for the hauler took a lot more effort. A child's toy needs several considerations: 1. Hold all the cars in any combination. That was pretty easy to do by making sure that the longest cars fit on...
  19. First serving tray

    I saw this Squirrel pattern in a woodworking catalog and I liked the contrasting colors of walnut and maple, so I bought the kit. Now I usually don't read the Instructions on anything, unless I get stuck and run into problems. There were no instructions available on how to make this squirrel...
  20. “Radian” Table Base

    This table base was custom designed from the ground up to be a curvy base for an upcoming live edge monkeypod dining table. The client wanted curves and something very sturdy. This design features both heavy style legs and the curves/angles to make them look great! The curvy leg profile and...
