  4. Steamer Trunk ~ for traveling the High Seas ~ back in the day

    This style of trunk was used back in the days before airplane travel was common and people traveled on cruise ships such as the Queen Mary (and the Titanic) for their vacations that could last up to 6 months or more. So they carried everything neatly packed in large wooden trunks. The...
  5. Traveling Plate Rack v1

    This is a traveling plate rack made from oak for wet plate photography. After the plate is fixed, it needs a place to dry before a protective varnish coating. During this drying process the silver coating is very delicate. Version one of this holder was mostly a prototype and I learned a few...
  6. Custom Guitar Case for Telecaster

    A special guitar build required a special guitar travel case. The guitar I just recently finished has some extra electronics that will travel with it. I figured a custom travel case to keep everything together made sense. The case needs to hold the guitar, MIDI pedal board, power cord, and...
  7. Travel Tic-Tac-Toe Game

    I just realized that I have mentioned that one of my patterns was features on Steve Good's blog, but that I never actually posted it as a project. Well here it is :) This simple tic-tac-toe game is 5 1/2" x 5 3/4", 3/4" thick (with the lid on), and features a simple sliding dovetail lid. The...

  13. Maple Butcher Block Table

    Well this project is now complete. All in all it turned out alright I think. Ran into a few snags here and there but its a learning experience sometimes. I really enjoyed making this butcher block table and have already started on some other butcher block and cutting board projects as well. As...
  14. Reclaimed Barn Wood Bar Clamp Tables

    These tables are pieces of 4/4 reclaimed American Chestnut siding that we got from a barn we tore down in PA. It's an original design of mine for a customer who wanted a reclaimed table they could break down easily for trade shows. It's welded galvanized pipe with bar clamp heads and caster...
  15. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Hey everybody. I've got the good fortune to spend 9 weeks in Europe this summer, and rather than just tourist it up, I'd like to expand the scope of my woodworking awareness. Whether it's a museum, a magnificent structure, or just a friendly craftsman with a desire to share, I'm into it. I'm...

    Hi folks, So I finally pulled the trigger and started work on a home-made bandsaw, courtesy of Matthias Wandel over at www.woodgears.ca. I haven't gotten terribly far yet, but was just wondering if anybody else is working on one of these at the moment? So far I have the wheel blanks glued up...

  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    OK, I'm new to this. I'm making a new workbench. My job is such that I move often and I'm not able to always have a large enough garage to ensure I have a space for a work bench. I'm making a work bench that's on wheels, collapsible, and somewhat lightweight. I looked heavily into the Paulk...
  19. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I have a question for all you LJers out there. Might seem a strange one, but my curiousity is up there. I have been thinking about how nice it would be to take a trip for a couple days or a week once or twice a year to different parts of my country and our world and visiting some of the LJ...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey guys! I'm getting ready for my first trip to Woodworking in America and trying to figure out what all I should take as well as how to take it.
