  2. Timberframe Mobile Toolchest

    My brother in law was considering building a small shed in the side of his sloped acre in Alaska. I had enough spare tools that I decided to make him a timbrerframe tool chest in case he wanted to go a more old timey route on the build. It is poplar, about 24×16 x 14. I made a mechanism that...

  6. Faux Timberframing

    I wanted something to go with the deck in my back yard and this is what I came up with. It's all cedar finished with Penofin. The joints are splined. The 45 degree supports are mortised into the 4×4s. The center rafter is a half lap joint fastened with screws and the holes covered with wooden...
  7. Pallet to Shelves

    Nothing like being a in your housefor 2 years and not fully unpacking. The Mrs. needed shelf space for her volumes of Romance novels. The forklift company my father works for had a scrubber delivered on an 8'x5' pallet. I didn't get a shot of that in one piece, but she was heavy and rough sawn...
  8. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Hey everyone- Some years back I ran across a blog that documented a man and his wife's journey of building a timber frame home from scratch, and largely by themselves. The blog thoroughly documented most of the stages-designing, fabricating the timbers, excavating and pouring the foundation...

    Scarf Joint Log Table I was able to grab a log off the side of the road that was about 3 feet long and 13 inches across. I wanted to make something out of it. I had seen a scarf joint bench made by a person who had taken the Timberframing course at The College of the Rockies a session or two...

    Wood Hoarder I admit it. I am a wood hoarder. My garage has plenty of untapped talent in it. Tables, chairs, shelves, car ramps… Now just the time to do something with it all. One of my earliest gets was a brace that was rejected at the timberframe shop I worked for. I was able to locate a...
