  1. Mahogany Air Return Register

    And now for something completely different…........... I am in the process of replacing every single air register in my house with wooden ones, with every one of them being different from the others. I've knocked off pretty much of the ones on my first floor, so I took a look around upstairs...
  2. Radiator Cover

    Using 95% recycle materials I recently finished this radiator cover for my bathroom. The center panel is both punched tin and painted and has a Cast Iron replica of the Hatteras light house setting in front of it. The entire frame and top were made from boards recycled from a 1950's style...
  3. stove hood, and my lack of planning

    hood built for lighting cooking area, and to vent the stove. plywood construction, maple trim, ceramic tile inset to match stove back splash. comes out from wall 15 inches and is a bit over 3 feet wide. easy enough, except, ...... #1 i did not run the vent tubing when i had the walls open, and...
  4. Air Filter / Exhaust Fan

    I put this together a while ago and it works so well, I thought I should share it. I have a basement shop with not a lot of height so I really don't have room to hang a filter from the ceiling. I built this unit up against one of the windows so when I want to use it as a filter only, I keep the...
  5. School Daze Pen

    I have been inspired to try to work with some different mediums when it comes to pen turning. We one of them is/was colored pencils. So here is the end result! With some design ideas from my wife I came up with this pretty cool pen. I so have to say I have not seen one of these yet so I hope...
  6. Cocobola wood A/C air vent vanes for 73 Chevy El Camino

    Well here is something you don't see to often or ever. I made these vent vanes from cocobola wood that I sliced 1/8th. in thick. I then made a jig that took 1/8th in. teflon rod and formed a 1/16th in. pin on the end that I inserted into the ends of the vane. This makes up the hinging point and...
  7. Butterfly keys make a kite-flying portrait

    Not sure about the wood species of the board (from a pallet). A sharp card scraper seems to work on soft wood, too.
  8. Guess what this is for? Edit: RV Vent tool

    This is a prototype/ mockup. Glad I did it. Took 3 tries to get it to work. Should have been a little more careful with measurements and layout. The first was a fuzz too tight. The second almost too loose. Third time is the charm. Glad I just used pine instead of good hardwood. It is 18"...
  9. Salvaged Vent and Reclaimed Wood Media Cabinet

    This media cabinet was custom made for a customer that wanted a unique architectural element integrated into the piece that is to be placed directly below a wall mounted flat screen television. The wood is all reclaimed barn wood taken from North Georgia area barns. The centerpiece is a salvaged...

So if at all possible please try to attend, and don't forget the trip to the sawyers in Bath. Maybe we can pick up some wood at cheap prices, and...
  11. Focus on the Workspace
    Hey all, just joined and was hoping for some help in finding a solution to my exes heat problem I'm having. Just had a shed built about a year and a half ago. Its 16ft x 15ft x 7ft and is just studs and T1-11 siding. The height i listed does not take into account the roof space. The shed is not...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I just did a quick search, and couldn't find anything like this on the LumberJocks site. Anybody ever made … or … have any thoughts about making … heating/air conditioning floor vents ? Like …. OR I've wanted some (ours are the cheapest junk you could possibly buy … in an otherwise nice...
  13. Blogs
    Learning Hurts Beginner woodworker. At work tonight (x-ray tech), very slow, browsed, browsed, browsed LJ's. Have several scraps of hardwood from fellow wood workers I've recently met. Decided to make one of the several "wine bottle boards", so I grabbed a piece of Ambrosia Maple and some...
  14. Focus on the Workspace
    Hey All, I am in the middle of redesigning my shop. I'm drawing out the electric and studs, planning for insulation, etc. The shop will be heated and cooled. I'm writing this post in hopes to solve a potential condensation issue. The issue that I'm running into is the roof. I want a...
  15. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Totally off topic here but wanted to vent/share this with LJ as I know others may need a flower service in the future. In the past year I've attempted to send flowers for family members funeral services TWICE and they weren't delivered on time. Most recently, I had ordered some flowers for a...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    My fellow LJ's I am contemplating using mother of pearl laminate for the panel of a small box lid. The laminate is 0.006" thick (which I believe might be somewhat translucent) and I was thinking of applying it over a 1/4" baltic birch ply. My questions are: 1) should I paint the plywood...
