  1. Contemporary Reclaimed Barn Wood Side Table

    This contemporary table was one I built for fun. It's made from a reclaimed white oak "door buck" (threshold) from a stack we have at the yard. It's 3" thick and 24"x24". The cube is a 24"x24"x24" steel frame I welded and then had chrome dipped. It's a very simple design. I like having all the...
  2. pens

    I thought I would try pen turning. Not being sure if I would like it, I bought one of those Penn State drill press attachments. I figured if I didn't like it, I would only be out $20. Not only did it work, it was a lot of fun. The downside is, now I'm a bit poorer as I ordered a 12" mini...
  3. Replacing 1858 thresh-hold in Historic House

    I am a member of local historical society for Livingston County, Illinois. We manage and give tours of 3 local historic houses. In one of the houses built in 1858, the upstairs thresh-hold was damaged so badly, that I recommended we replace it with a new piece …........with the same dimensions...
  4. Simple Reclaimed Beam Mantle

    This is one of the h4s (hand-hewn four sides) softwood beams from our barn wood lot. The customer picked it out and gave us the dimensions. They wanted it natural (unfinished). It's held up by a red oak french cleat. The cleat sits in a routed out pocket in the back of the beam and is 3/4"...
  5. Logo Carving in Black Walnut Frame

    Since I began designing what I call "Badges", 3D looking logos for my website, carving a real 3D logo has been on my mind. I recieved a sample of SignFoam to try and carved this design with three distinct carving levels on my CarveWright machine. It required absolutely no touch up sanding...
  6. Router table that fits on a workmate

    I found this idea on the internet and adjusted a bit to my needs. Super simple to use and small enough to store away. Just what i needed.
  7. Endgrain Butcher Block Cutting & Cheese Boards

    I used the Wood Whisperer's design to make these end grain cheese and cutting boards. They make great presents and are fairly easy to make. So Wood Whisperer, if you happen to see this, know that your end grain cutting boards are being made in and circulated throughout South Africa. The...
  8. The New Front Porch...

    I completed this just over a year ago. It's weathering in fine. The deck/floor is made of ipe decking and was put down five (5) years prior and shows no signs of wear other than a slight graying which I'm kinda partial to. The missus power washes it and makes me teak oil it once a year to...

    Hello everyone, I picked up this job recently, replacing a bunch of thresholds around a home. All of these pieces are interior, but are subject to very high traffic. They had a "Home Cheapo" floor installed three years ago. The real touch series by dupont. Finding material isn't a problem...

    HI all, I have to install a new threshold and the door will need to be cut off. I thought I would use a wedge pushed under the door when it is nearly closed to find it's existing height; then, level from the elevation of the new threshold to the same floor surface. The difference between...

    Quick and Easy Drawer Pulls This is one of my earliest videos. I had built some shop cabinets and I needed some drawer pulls, so I figured I would make some using an old plastic cabinet handle as a template. A year later and they still work, but I have a different, more comfortable design...
  12. Woodworking Skill Share
    Looking for some good advice. I installed a long oak saddle (aka threshold) a few years back between my living room and kitchen, so it does see some high traffic. Every few months some of the nails holding it down creep up a little bit and snag your sock. Anyone have any good tricks for...
  13. Focus on the Workspace
    I have a 3" rise into my shop area. It's concrete on top of concrete. I would like to repair it and make a smooth slope threshold. It's a little difficult to roll my tool stands in and out. I also have a tripping hazard that has gotten me more than once. Any suggestions?
  14. Wood & Lumber
    I'm making a threshold for a 6-foot-long opening between two rooms in my daughter's house. The opening itself is about 3"-4" wide, and is filled w/ a mixture of 2×4's, 4×4's, old masonry, etc. In short, it's really ugly! I bought an oak 1×8 and planed it down to 5/8" thick (which may have been...
