  1. Bent Ply Photo Frame

    Bend an odd number of layers of thin bendy ply around a form (including a piece of veneer with marquetry as the front and back layer). Cut the formed piece to shape using a scroll saw. Secure the clear acrylic photo holder with hand made (and threaded) nuts and bolts made on the metal lathe.
  2. 3" Wide Shelf

    My wife has a craft room and in that room are boxes filled with stamps and punches that she uses to make cards and such. She told me that she always has to dig in the boxes to try and find a certain stamp or punch and that she needs something better to organize. I mentioned that she has lots...
  3. Urchin Ornaments

    Merry Christmas fellow LumberJocks! I had a lot of fun making these ornaments. More precisely, I had a lot of fun figuring out how to make these ornaments. If you are interested in seeing how I went about it, you can check out the video below. I did expect the thin spindle to be challenging...
  4. Thin Strip Jig I built

    Back in 2019, I created a thin strip jig as a way to cut thinner stock in a repeatable fashion. Thin strips might not seem desirable until you need one. The one I originally made wasn't well documented, so I started a new one. I'm going to run through it here. First I created a base by...
  5. Thin Persimmon Bowl

    Venturing into thinner territory. Found a live larvae while turning this, filled the holes with malachite and continued. 10.25"x3.25" and 1/4 thick. Weighs 15 ounces.
  6. Thin Rip Jig with Feeler Gauges and Storage Box

    When I made my last project, the ultimate cutting board, it became apparent that I really needed a thin rip jig. I couldn't see spending money on such a simple piece, so I hit the cutoff bin and pulled out a piece of walnut that had some discoloration and was too small for anything else. The...
  7. Custom Fuel truck shadow box

    Custom R-11 fuel truck shadow box I did.
  8. Thin Strip Ripping Jig

    I built this out of SHOPNOTES and I love it. Very simple but very effective. I am not sure which issue it was from. Maybe you know? I modified it a little. I found that a steel rule cut to size works great for the gauge. Just scuff/scratch one side and epoxy it on. Get a scrap of clear packaging...
  9. Lathe tool : thin parting tool

    I got this idea from Captain Eddie Castelin (see ) for this great tool. Basically all you need is a hardened piece of steel and that's what edger blades are ! So scrap the paint of the blade, cut it with a grinder or a hacksaw, grind the tip to the profile you want, epoxy some wood for the...
  10. 17th Century Carved Box - a la Peter Follansbee my way

    I've been working on learning how to do this box for a at least a year. After about 3 test boards and a couple of extra gouges I was happy with the results and ready to make the box. I first saw Peter Follansbee make this box on the Woodwright Shop...
  11. Thin Walled Cedar Bowl

    Well the bark fell off in about 30 seconds but the natural shaped edge still looks pretty cool. The grain has some nice dark streaks and stuff. Managed to get the walls nice and thin though as you can see in the shots on my chandelier. This was made from a cedar log that a neighbor had from...
  12. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hey guys! Well, with more and more requests for wooden rings made from customer-supplied wood, I decided to purchase a bandsaw. Up until now, I've been getting by with splitting thin stock in some species (hickory, oaks… really easy) or carefully cutting by hand with a pullsaw and sanding down...

    I'm fairly new to working with cherry. I took on a project for a buddy of mine to make a TV stand. I just cant seem to get that old, red cherry look to come out just right. I cant set it outside right now for sun exposure as its cloudy and rainy here for the next few days. Ive heard you can...
  14. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Greetings and Salutations LumberJocks! I seem to have gotten myself into a bit of a predicament here… I designed these long shelves to go above the entry to the hall. I built them in to sections with a support in the center, both for strength and because in a shop my size anything over 5' is...
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm a little stumped on how to do this, though I like the style. My concerns include how to secure the materials inside the rabbet, attaching hardware for wall hanging, and of course strength of miters. Thanks for ANY help. Thinking of making a few for christmas. These are sold on crate and...

    Hi, I need to plane some 2 3/16" strips down to 1/8", the strips are about 18" long. In the past I have used double sided tape on mdf. I was wondering if there was another way of doing it. Thanks.
  18. Jigs & Fixtures
    Stole the idea from an advert selling this for $30, 3D print it for less! That'll teach 'em to spam ME! LOL Simple alignment guide for drilling 3 holes for splitter tab. Print the tool and the tab for pennies. Break a tab? Print another! Specifically for THIN KERF (0.093" - 3/32") If you need...

    Design ideas, need some feedback OK, so yeah - another blog about a router table, but since I'm going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I've had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2...
