  1. Projects Embroidery frame (large)

    One of our friends is really into embroidery. She has taken classes all over the place, gotten certifications from international guilds, and all that fancy stuff. For larger-scale projects, she has acquired a couple of oak embroidery frames. These are great, but it turns out they are not big...
  2. Hand Tools
    Bought this off of an online auction site thinking it was something other than it was, but had I read I would have seen it being sold as a gouge wood working tool. I see no cutting edge on this tool, and the angle seems a bit odd for gouging like a chisel. Also on the end there is a big wide...
  3. Underwater World

    Hello all, it's been awhile since I posted a project because of my broken hand and then playing catch up to get some projects done. This one took AWHILE to finish because it was 341 pieces and a lot of them where very small. I spent a lot of time down on my hands and knees looking for a piece...
  4. I made Jay Bates' air filter cart.

    I've been wanting to build a air filter for my shop for quite some time now. Recently I found a working furnace fan and motor at a junk shop for $20. I looked around online for ideas and I liked Jay Bates' design. I liked his cart idea so you could wheel it to a tool. I had all the wood I needed...
  5. Chisel Handles

    I turned these Chisel Handles to create a uniform look and to replace my old plastic and broken wood handled Chisels. Most of these belonged to my Dad. I cleaned up the steel, sharpened and I use them almost daily. The handles are made from Ash from the wood burning pile :)
  6. Marking Awl

    Hey guys! This was a fun little lathe project i made. I was tired of using nails to mark the centres of my holes before drilling so i decided to make my own awl! I used African rosewood for the handle, a brass fitting that i then turned down on the lathe and a old masonry bit i had laying...
  7. Parting Tool Handle

    Shortly after starting here I made a parting tool from an old jointer knife. I used a spare handle that was here in the shop and it worked ok for a while, but the hole in the end was cracked and the tool would slip out of it very easily. So, I decided that it was time to make a new handle for...
  8. Wedge Marking Gauge

    Found the plan here: http://www.popularwoodworking.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/0612_Marking_Gauge.pdf I changed it to accept a blade instead of a pin. However, i made the mistake of putting the wedge on the wrong side of the blade so it can not mark less than 5/16" of an inch. I could...

  10. Hitting the Wall

    this is another tool to use as a Life Guide but this time I adapted it somewhat to focus on the barriers that my daughter's students use in the classroom. On the one side of the walls are some of the excuses that are used as to why something can't be achieved or completed. With these thoughts...

  12. Bow Saw

    Today, I needed a Bow Saw and could only find some that have a flimsy design, but I did find replacement blades and decided to make one. It only took around 1 hour using some left over Pine and it is much stronger than what I expected. Very pleased with it :)
  13. Gopro wood knuckles mount

    I wanted to think outside of the box, and make a go pro handle diferent than everyone else so after a while I came up with this design. Its easy to grab and has a nice feeling to it. Basically I pick up a piece of hard wood made a few holes with a dremel and give it the rough shape with a file...
  14. Band saw repair

    So a couple of weeks back I was working on something small on the band saw. The piece slipped and the blade caght, resulting in the shattering of the table insert. After much cursing I decided to do what any of us would do: waste tons of time making something I could order for 5 bucks! So...
  15. Czeck Edge Pilot marking knife

    This was my first completed woodturning project. The handle is olivewood; the metal parts (blade and ferrule) came from Czeck Edge. Overall length is about 5 1/2". The finish is Zinsser Bulls Eye shellac cut to 50% with denatured alcohol, plus about 20% boiled linseed oil. UPDATE 2009-06-25: I...
  16. A box worthy of the gift from my daughter

    [Legebla en Esperanto] Some years ago my little daughter gave me a Christmas gift that she bought at school. It was a perfect present for me, and it demonstrated true thoughtfulness on her part. Somehow I knew that I was destined to make this project one day. Very recently that day arrived. I...
  17. Hand Plane Thicknessing Jig with Micro Adjustment

    This is a jig I have designed for creating precise and repeatable thicknesses when hand planing small stock. It has undergone many design changes to optimise its function and ease of use. It uses a micro adjustment mechanism for setting the height. I have a video on Youtube to demonstrate it...
  18. Handy Cheap Small Awl

    I turned these small Awl handles from scrap Oak. I use a type of 4mm wall tie that seem to be stainless steel and very hard. I have a few of these Awl's about the workshop. They are really handy and cost almost no money to make :) I have a tutorial on how I made these at Instructables
  19. Large Carvers Chisel Mallet

    I turned this large Mallet from a piece of Hard Maple from my firewood pile. It was supposed to be a practice turning piece, but I've since used it a lot and really like the weight and size of it :) The Mallet is: 10" long overall (25.5cm) 5" across the head (12.7cm) The handle is 1 1/2" (3.8cm)...
