    Hi A recently completed bandsawn box - the Roll Top. Australian Red Cedar, it is 14.5 cm (5 3/4") long. The insert is Birch. Good Health
  5. Inverted Top

    An experiment in inverted tops. The point protrudes just a tad so you have to be very precise when spinning by hand but it goes for a long time and is fun to watch. Maple with shellac, BLO & wax. Next time I will make it in two pieces. I wanted to hollow it deeper but don't have the proper tools...
  6. Restored Tilt Top Table

    Restored tilt top table for a friend. All three legs had to reattached, which led to some creative clamping (second picture). There were also many bits that had simply broken off over time. Each of the three tripod legs had snapped off at some point in the life of this table, and blocks had to...
  7. Green flip-top planer stand

    I built this stand for reasons similar to most people who build these… saving floor space. I did not elect to use it for two tools though. My primary purpose was to be able to put my planer under the extension table without having to lift it off the floor every time I wanted to use it. I...
  8. Flip Top Tool Stand For Planer And Drill Press

    Made this for my planer and drill press. I needed a stand for my planer and I don't use my drill press a lot, so it works great to have it out of the way when not in use. It also holds some drill bits and a chuck on the side. The base is mobile. It pivots on a 3/4" piece of conduit.
  9. Penny Table

    I took a trashed wine table and turned it into a beautiful piece of furniture that is sure to be valued as a family heirloom. A little bit of finish work, pennies, and glazing does the trick. Years ago I acquired this table from my grandmother. At one time it had a leather top. My first...
  10. Tops with handles

    These are some tops made (more or less) from the book "America Folk Toys" by John Nelson. (http://www.amazon.com/American-Folk-Toys-Easy-Build/dp/1561582212/ref=sr12?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1269915343&sr=8-2) We're making several toys for easter give-aways for the kids. I have to admit that these...
  11. newest teapot of sorts

    I guess I will stop at eight teapots for the shelf is full. The handle and spout is BB plywood and the body is Aspen which is way too soft to work with. I used a number of colors. I told someone this is an exact replica of a 2000 year old teapot. One I have never seen before so no telling if...
  12. First Box in the New Shop

    This is my first box project in the new shop. It is made from maple with simple miter joints and walnut splines. The top is beveled padauk. I was pleased to see that I could cut nearly perfect miters on the Proxxon table saw. It had no problem cutting crisp lines on 1/2" stock. Now that the...
  13. Hat Making Tool Custom Shape Crown Hat Block Set Long Oval Shape Cowboy Western Hats

    Custom Shaping of Long Oval Shaped Crown Blocks This is a project I did for a custom hat making shop in Texas. This is a "Crown Block", used to do the preliminary shaping of the felt hat body into the shape of a head. I make several other tools that are used for the shaping and cutting, etc...
  14. Flip top planer cabinet with offset pivot

    I built a flip top planer cabinet as part of a larger shop reorganization project. The criteria were that when stored, the top of the cabinet would be the same elevation as the rest of the tables so as to serve as infeed and outfeed for other tools; and that the planer itself would swing out...
  15. Tops for Christmas

    Turned a few Christmas gifts recently. Each top is different and were all made from beautiful walnut. They also each have different spinning characteristics. The 2 single tops pictured are the best spinners of the lot. I am also turning yoyo's but have not got them finished yet, I will update...
  16. Crotch Walnut Occasional Table

    Here is a small table I have finished up recently. It was destined to go to Tu Gallery here in town, but they just shut down. Now, I may keep it or still may sell it. Not sure yet. It is made of walnut crotch, and the base is figured birch from 60 yr old boards. I stole the general design from...

  18. Solid Oak -End Table (Arts & Crafts Style)

    I have been wanting to make a Arts & Crafts piece of furniture for my living room and I have been researching this project for a couple of months, as usual scouring my usual sites and magazines for some inspiration when I came across this project by Chris Marshall. To be honest this looks more...
  19. Bench with Storage

    This is the first indoor bench I ever made. I used 2×12's for most of the construction and the 1/4" plywood for the bottom. I pegged the corners with two dowels each to help prevent racking, the dowels are actually old sponge brush handles (use what you got!). The lid is a simple lift off style...
  20. Third turning attempt

    Hey Jocks. I have a Smithy ShopSmith that my grandfather gave me. I finally fired up the lathe function a couple of days ago. I'm hooked. This is my third turning attempt. I've never had a lesson, I just watched some guys on YouTube and decided to go at it. So any advice you want to offer...
