  1. Class of 2017 Graduate Picture Frame and Tassel Holder

    I designed this Class of 2017 Graduate Picture Frame and Tassel Holder for my son who is graduating from high school this year. It's an easy weekend project. The frame is cut from maple. The mitered frame around the picture is Western Red Cedar, and this creates a rabbet to hold in the 5"x7"...
  2. Live Edge Coat Rack

    I made this live edge coat rack using a red cedar board. It's amazing how dull cedar looks until you put a finish on it. I tilted my bandsaw table at an angle to cut the ends so they would blend in with the natural edge. I also concealed the mounting holes underneath the coat hooks. Click...
  3. Sawdust Art

    You've probably seen Sand Art before, but I thought I would try Sawdust Art. I bought a vase from the dollar store and filled it with sawdust from different types of wood. I placed a pizza box lid under my table saw to catch the saw dust, then dumped it in the vase. It took about 10-15 cuts...
  4. Picture Frame with Wooden Signatures

    This Mother's Day picture frame is made from Western Red Cedar. I had our kids' sign their names on a sheet of paper and I cut them out of Eastern Cedar on the scroll saw and glued them to the frame. This was a fun project and I think my wife will like having the kids' signatures in wood. The...
  5. Whac-A-Woodworker Whirligig

    I made this Whac-A-Woodworker Whirligig for the Whirligig Wars 2014 contest hosted by Laney Shaughnessy and Steve Ramsey. It's based on the Whac-A-Mole arcade game. It has 5 propellers that turn independently in the wind, which makes the woodworkers pop up randomly. It thought it would be...
  6. DIY Bluetooth Speaker

    I made this Bluetooth Speaker out of walnut and maple using a speaker kit. I cut the box joints with the scroll saw and glued the four sides together. The top is glued on, but the bottom is screwed onto the enclosure by using longer screws through the rubber feet. The only tricky part was...
  7. Patience Clock

    I built this Patience Clock to remind myself that "Only those who have the patience to do simple things perfectly ever acquire the skill to do difficult things easily." Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1805), dramatist, essayist and poet. The symbol is a Kanji character that represents patience...
  8. 2x4 Acoustic Telecaster Guitar

    I made this Acoustic Telecaster Guitar from a single 8-foot 2×4 for the Summers Woodworking 2×4 contest. I used telecaster templates to make the body and neck. The body consists of glued up blocks for sides and thin resawn pieces of 2×4 to cover the top and back. I cut cotter pins for the...
  9. Intarsia Santa Picture Box

    I built this Intarsia Santa Picture Box for the Christmas Box Build-Off Contest over at A Simple Design of Ocala. It was my first attempt at doing intarsia which is a lot of fun. It measures about 6"x9"x4" and is made from a single cedar board and some pine. It will be used to store my...
  10. Toy Box

    I built this toy box for my great nephew. It's made from 3/4" pine and plywood. The sides are basic frame and panel construction using stub tenons on the rails, which I have never tried before but they fit nicely. The plywood panels used to be the drawer bottoms in my old workbench that I...
  11. Drumset Birdhouse

    I made this drumset birdhouse for a contest held at our Gwinnett Woodworkers Association meeting last Saturday. I've been wanting to make a stave snare drum, so this was a good opportunity to try that process out on a smaller scale. The bass drum is made up of 8 boards with 22.5 degree bevels...
  12. Pocket Hole Lamp

    I bought a Kreg pocket hole jig over a year ago and this idea has been in my head ever since, but I kept putting it on the back burner. It's a pocket hole lamp made from a nicely figured cedar 1×8. It's 16" tall and has 30 degree miters in the corners. I used this Portfolio Candelabra Base...
  13. Faux Side Table

    Here's a quick and easy project to kick off the month of April, a Faux Side Table! Click here to watch my video of this project!
  14. R2-D2 Birdhouse

    I made this R2-D2 Birdhouse for Star Wars Day! It's made from pine and I used lots of paints and pens to decorate it. Click here to watch my youtube video of this project. Click here to read my blog article and get my free PDF cutting templates. Thanks for checking out my project! May the...
  15. Coffee Mug Rack

    I made this Coffee Mug Rack for my wife to help free up some cabinet space. It's a pretty easy project and you can keep adding sections to it for more cups and mugs. I built this one to see how she likes it and now she wants a few more. In our house, it would be easier to find places to hang...
  16. Fold Up Work Table

    This Fold Up Work Table is going to be a real space-saver in my small shop. It measures 48"x48"x36" when folded down. I made it for a large Inventables X-Carve CNC machine, but it would be great for any work surface. I will be mounting the CNC to the table top with proper gantry supports that...
  17. Wooden Sunglasses

    I've been experimenting with making wooden sunglasses and these are the ones I've made so far. I use a bent lamination technique with clamping forms to make the frames. The featured pair is made from cherry. The last picture also shows others I made from purpleheart/maple, curly maple, and...
  18. Kreg Jig Screen Door

    Our back door is on one side of a bay window, so it requires a custom screen door. I used kreg Jig pocket holes to put it together. It's made from 1" thick Southern Yellow Pine from Lowe's and the door measures 24-13/16" x 80-1/4". I salvaged the hinges, door closer, and latch/handle from our...
  19. Airplane Hand Plane

    I made this Airplane Hand Plane for Steve Ramsey's MakersCare.org fundraiser that benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It's made from mahogany and curly maple. I borrowed the blade from an old hand plane. It actually makes some shavings, but would probably work better with a higher quality...
  20. Workshop Sawblade Bookends

    I built this set of Workshop Bookends from scrap 3/4" plywood and an old saw blade. The boards are 6" x 7.25" and I rounded off two corners of each board. It is assembled with glue and screws, and the saw blade is set in a groove with epoxy. I attached non-skid shelf liner to the bottom with...
