  1. Shop Made Drum Sander

    Here is a project I've been working on for a couple of weekends. I have to thank a couple of fellow Lumber Jocks for the idea and the links to loads of online info. Thank you to "Yorkshirestewart" and to "blake" for your earlier project posts. This site had the most info...
  2. Family Crest

    The design for this project was extracted from various generic family crests, whose design elements (in my opinion) were crude at best. I improved on the various elements, and created my own. I used a particularly beautiful piece of black walnut (~8" x 11") which was very dense. It took a year...
  3. Ryobi sander conversion to Hook and Loop

    Someone posted their making a thickness sander and putting hook and loop sandpaper on the drum. That got me to thinking that I'd like to convert my sander to hook and loop. He recommended Woodmaster in Kansas City for the parts. I checked with the supplier where I buy sandpaper and I could get...

    Hi this is a redo of a shaving horse I built in the early 80's. I customized it so I could use it to make Windsor chair spindles (for the backs of chairs). I purchased some rawhide and laminated it to a grooved platform and then made a cylindrical top member that is also laminated with...

  12. A different kind of Oneida Dust Deputy Cart/Caddy with a Fein Vacuum

    I previously built one of the Shop Notes style Dust Deputy Carts however I didn't care for it for several reasons so I decided to build this one with a smaller footprint, more capacity (15 gallons) and some other features I wanted (my daughter says it looks like some kind of Robot!). The vacuum...

This was a whole new set of challenges. normally when I make frames I buy the 8′ molding already to go, all I have to do is cut the miters. And...

    This is another "single-sheet of plywood" shop cart that I built, this time with no shelf below the top. I can store some larger items, and help with the clutter in the shop.
  15. Sharpening Stones Case with Wooden Latches

    Long time ago in the galaxy far far away… Well, it's good to be back to woodworking. No need to repeat importance of sharpening. The easier access to your sharpening stuff, the more often you hit your cutting edges on the stones, the better from any point of view. In my case of very limited...
  16. WW2 Helmet Display Pedestal

    As I continue to build projects for my WW2 themed room, I've added this pedestal display for an original GI helmet which came from Normandy. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It's the first time I've used Cherry Veneer Plywood, and it was really easy to use, came out great, and was a...
  17. Shopmade thickness sander

    I'm gearing up to try making ukuleles. One of the challenges is getting the stock for the soundboard, back, and sides thin enough. My planer goes down to 1/8" (about 3mm) - the stock needs to be around 1.5-2mm (~3/64ths). I did a couple of test soundboards by hand, with planes, scrapers, and...
  18. Maple Bowl (Suprise)

    I had some maple logs that I got locally from neighbor that was having a tree cut down. As I was taking the logs I was trying to think about where I would put them. I have a very limited space to store raw logs. I usually place them on a skid in my yard but I knew that it was full but I...
