    LONG time ago, back when Norm Abram was still in his little shop...I cobbled up a pile of scraps from the shop...plywood, pine, pallet wood, and made a small 4 drawer Chest of Drawers.. yeah...I think I can do a wee bit better than this? Handles were glued and screwed in place...doubt IF I can...
  3. Texas Pendants - Gorilla Glue finish

    Mesquite, 1/8" thick, 1" tall by 1" wide. Gorilla polyurethane glue finish buffed with steel wool. Made my daughter a Texas necklace pendant a couple years ago which she wore a lot but unfortunately lost. Preparing for a vacation she asked for a replacement so she could show her state loyalty...

  6. Texas Bandsaw Box

    My Mom is from Texas and has a good deal of decor related to that state. I was trying to come up with an idea of something to make her for Christmas this year and I ran across this from LJ Blackie. Well, I've made a couple of bandsaw boxes for gifts this year that were very well recieved and I...
  7. Texas Star 2

    Here's a walnut and maple star I whipped out yesterday morning with my table saw. These are fun to make. No special tools just template and table saw. Took about 30 - 45 minutes after glue up.
  8. Hold'em Table

    This table uses a micro-fiber playing surface whis will not pile up like felt and is scotch treated to resist stains from probable spills of "adult beverages". Folding banquet table legs make it convienient to stow away.
  9. Texas Mesquite Pens

    I made one of these pens back in my 30 days challenge last November, and I think it was the first pen I sold. This is one of the few that I really didn't want to see go, so I decided to turn another one for myself. Funny thing is that I've turned a few projects out of this mesquite, and every...
  10. Return of the (Teeny Tiny Osage) Ring

    Now this tops the scale… or rather whatever the reverse of that is, as the smallest ring made to date. Smaller in diameter than a dime, (barely larger than the power button on my Powerbook) (something like 17mm outside diameter, 15mm inside) This asymmetrical ring design has two outside bands...
  11. Texas Flag

    I was asked to make a Texas flag for a customer, so I figured out the dimensions I wanted and respectively worked out the ratio to be correct. I found this beautiful piece of 1"x12"x7' Ambrosia Maple at my local Woodcraft marked down because it had a big knot hole in it about 2/3 the way thru...
  12. Texas Wooden Flag

    I had a couple of extra fence pickets I wanted to use and made this guy. After painting, I beat the crap out of it with various tools and sanded some of it off to give it a stressed look. A great simple and quick project for gifts to friends and family.
  13. Corn Hole Boards

    Texas A&M vs Texas Doesn't get any better that this!! Matching team bags Created a storage compartment for storing bags on the back side.
  14. Lone Star

    Just a fun project from the old fence.
  15. Pen and Pencil Holders

    Bee-ing all they can bee. I stumbled across a dried up cedar tree with several branches still attached. Thinking I might bee able to use the trunk for some salvageable wood, I started to saw off the branches. Bee-lieve it or not this is what I found. Carpenter bees had tunneled nests all...

  17. crosscut sled with guard and dust collection

    Thought I'd share my design for a crosscut sled that works with the dust hood in place. There are a lot of designs out there but they mostly require the dust shroud to be off. I like the dust collection (and safety) with the sawstop shield and came up with this. Very little dust made it out...
  18. Herringbone Tables

    This is a project that I started in October 2013 and finally finished June 2014. I was half way finished and didn't know what I wanted the bottom shelves and bottom legs to look like. So I put them on a shelf for about 3 months and worked on some other projects until I finally pictured the...
  19. Torsion Box Work Bench, Mobile and Stowable, for Small Shops

    This project is for a mobile, stowable, and flexible bench system, particularly adapted to smaller shops. In my La Conner vacation home I have a modest stationary bench that sits against the wall. However, it is only accessible from the front, for all practical purposes. Like most woodworkers...
  20. 3D Texas Star (Pecan)

    This star was made as a wedding present for a friend of mine. I've been wanting to make one of these for a long time, but didn't know where to start so I must give a big thanks to Aggie69 and his angle calculating spreadsheet. Once I knew what the pieces needed to look like, I didn't have much...
