  2. Is this a Mallet? Good Question.

    Well here goes. Another project. (Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?) Early this spring I purchased a Jet 1236 Lathe from a friend. He hadn't used it in over 25 years. A bit of cleaning was definitely in order. Besides putting it back together, as it was stored in the upstairs...
  3. 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...
  4. My first grease box

    I'm finally getting to put the finishes on a few projects. This is my first grease box. It's tulip wood with three coats of clear. It has felt lined bottoms as it's for my wife to keep her wedding ring and friendship ring in. I plan to make another in the future and actually use it as a...
  5. Luca's Rocking Air Plane

    Three years ago my 1st grandson Santino was born and I built him a rocking horse. He is now big enough to ride it. My 2nd grandson Luca was born this past fall. So not wanting to miss building something for him to ride when he was big enough I decided to make a rocking airplane for him. I...
  6. Backgammon Cutlery Canteen Conversion

    My wife, Avril, and I got tired of lifting the heavy canteen of cutlery up for formal dinner parties and decided to put the contents (Pic 2) into the cutlery drawer of the chest of drawers adjacent to our dining table - having demoted the drawer's original contents to the kitchen cabinet. Much...

  8. Tulip Bandsaw Box

    My wife loves tulips which were a part of our wedding day. I decided to make her a bandsaw box, originally as an anniversary gift which turned in to a belated Christmas gift. I used black oak and walnut that I milled from our property and neighbor's tree. I used 7 coats of poly to finish it...
  9. Treasure Box I, II and III

    It has been a while since I posted anything. This is not a single project post but more of a series of projects, our Treasure Boxes. Each Treasure box series is composed of 4 boxes, I have finished and delivered the 1st of our 3rd series and I wanted to share with you our latest youtube video...

  12. Forever Fresh! Flower

    I drew inspiration for this non-wilting flower from Harry's projects, he has made many, I have made One; and I was graciously given a length of wood, which I used a piece of for the-Tulip from another fellow Lumberjock. PASs- when we met at a craft show almost 2 years ago. Species unknown; as...
  13. Beam Compass. One project leads to another.

    I did not set out to make one of these today, but lately it seems that one project leads to another. After struggling with a small compass and contemplating a hafass version of a beam compass, I decided to just make a nice one that will last. It's been a while since I posted a project anyway, so...
  14. Tulip side tables

    Here is another very basic woodworking mixed material project that came out fairly well. I always liked the simplicity and elegance of Saarinen' tulip tables, so when I needed some end tables I used them as an inspiration. The base is a Bose 901 speaker stand. You can get them on Ebay. If you...
  15. Self Portrait toy

    This is a self portrait I made for a school assignment. I did not really have any plan when I started this, I just started carving the head, and worked down from there. originally it was going to be many different materials, with just wood hands, but i wanted to challenge myself, and try to...
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am trying to design a display case to hold a baseball and bat. It will be about 3' long, 8" high and about 5" deep. The front of the display case will be hinged with glass captured in something like a rail/stile door frame. I am trying to decide how to capture the glass in the frame. One...
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    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...
  18. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    I'm trying to decide if I should sell tools. Here's my thought process. #1 I could use the Money #2 I'm not using the tools I'm selling #3 I need more room. With work being slow I decided to empty my storage unit to save the rent it adds up to $ 925 a year. After thinking about it most of what...
  19. Blogs
    A "Mini" Series - up to present I'm posting these pictures as a means to get bloggin'…and, because I'm interested in milling and drying lumber (on a scale that I can accommodate - in the backyard). I'm also brand new at it, so it's just fun to share! I would have liked to have photos or video...
