  1. Projects THREAD STAND

    Order from lady who is skilled with threads, which needed tidy workspace when making her projects. 35x20x3cm moon shape thread stand, made of 10mm birch plywood and 25mm walnut. First I cut moon shape on bandsaw, write holes, drilled them and finished with srollsaw. Then, glued plywood on walnut...
  2. Embroidery Thread Storage Cabinet

    Just finished the wife's new cabinet to store embroidery thread spools. She's been waiting fairly patiently as I tackle this on weekends here and there. She's very happy with the finished product. Inspired by some searching on the internet, but highly modified by myself using SketchUp...
  3. Moxon Vise Bench-on-Bench

    I have had one of these for a little while and love using it, so for this surprise swap I decided to make one with some improvements for John McClure! Mine is 12" tall which can be a bit much depending on the task at hand so I made this one 6" and it can always be clamped to a spacer if desired...
  4. Hand-Cranked wood model of Scissors Lift Platform

    I like to convert mechanisms to hand-cranked wood models for kids to learn and play with. Before the virus, I would take my 50+ wood models to public shows several times a year and often the adults had as much fun as the kids. The challenge for me on this project was making the wood threads on...
  5. Thread spool/bobbin rack

    I've been working on this off and on for 6 months. I finally decided that I'd give to to my wife for Christmas so that I'd finish it. It's inspired by this project and I originally planned to not have the backing board. I didn't think through the strength of the joints and after it fell apart...
  6. Thread Holder/Rack

    My wife just recently completed her sewing class and she has since amassed lots of supplies. She came home one night with an IKEA book shelf and I almost died. I told her anything else she needs I WILL MAKE IT. So she needed a place to store all of her thread. 1/4" dowels glued into rails...
  7. Sewing/Cutting Table

    "How come you never make anything for me?" asked my wife. 4 months later, in mid-February, I finally finished her Christmas present. Happy Valentine's Day I guess :) This is 95% her design, 5% my suggestions throw in along the way ("this is how it's usually done," or "I only have this much of...

    I have been looking for something to do with the other end of my RAS motor besides just a drill chuck. I always thought that the speed would be a little much and it is only one speed. I just found WM berg.com. They will drill and tap a pulley to my specifications so now I can use my RAS to turn...

    Hi guys, i just bought a very expensive table saw and after setting it up i realized it has a very unacceptable issue. I was trying to allign the blade to the miter slots when i noticed that as i raised the blade the back part of the blade would shift to the right out of parralel with the slots...
  10. Hand Tools
    I picked up an old Stanley-Bailey #7 off of E-Bay a couple of weeks ago. It was very rusty and took a lot of WD-40 to get everything apart. In the process of restoring it, I found that the threads on the lever cap screw and the adjusting nut screw were all boogered up. Normally, I would chase...

    Starting my fly rod - finding materials including birch bark I am setting off to make my first fly rod (sorry, graphite not a bamboo rod - one thing at a time) with the goal of leveraging my years of woodworking by turning a unique grip. I am also making a rod for my older brother as well. I...
