  2. Poplar Plugs & Tusks in Walnut

    A good friend wanted a gift for his brother whom he just stayed with for a visit. He suggested using traditional joinery because the brother is into woodworking. I find miters to be much easier than mortise and tenons. It seems I am always getting something out of square or to big or too small...

  4. Makore Hogscraper Candlestick

    This is a candlestick I turned from makore. Makore is sometimes called African Cherry. Is is ok to turn but it is kind of soft like butternut. I learned a lesson while turning it. I am hypersensitive to the dust from it and darn near choked to death. It took a good 15 minutes to get my breath...

  7. Outdoor Dining Table

    I had these two Alaska Yellow cedar slabs taking up room in my shop. So, I dreamt up this trestle table design for them. I cut a slight convex on the sides and ends which gives the top a slight barrel shape. The top is 2" thick 84" long, 37" wide. I filled the dead knot in the center of the top...
  8. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am currently working out of a one car garage and am looking to make a rolling workbench/table saw combo. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas as to how I can make this better. I've started with a variation of the Ultimate Tool Stand by Dave Munkittrick. My main requirement is that it can...
  9. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hello fellow lumberjocks, a few years ago I bought a wood-slab coffee table. While the wood (teak) is really beautiful, the craftsmanship is rather sloppy. Over time the t-join that was used at the base of the table became very loose, and the table just wiggles around like crazy. I was...

    Frame components and tabletop I wanted to design an arts and crafts dining table that included arched rails and twin keyed tenons. I like several of the Stickley tables, but wanted something original. I like the feel of Keven Rodel's Talesien desk, which served as inspiration for this table...
  13. Wood & Lumber
    I've only been doing woodworking for about 1.5 years, but thought I'd tackle a big dream of mine: MY BED. I plan to post more of this project later, but for now, how do I keep these pesky tusk tenon wedges from coming loose?! I used an angle of 10 degrees for the mortise/wedge. I think one of my...
