  1. Bar Stool

    This wood was under a river in Honduras for over 100 years they call it "Soaker Logs". We picked it up locally in Crystal River Florida. The place has since gone out of business. Last year my husband Frank went to Chidwick School of Fine Woodworking in Stevensville, Montana...
  2. Mancala Board

    This was a birthday present for my brother who is a Game Fiend. I had this Sapeli sitting around and thought I could make it out of that. It turned out beautiful. I found that the grain really stands out when I stained it with a Red Mahogany stain. I didn't like the typical piano hinge idea...
  3. Duke Checker Set

    My son-in-law is a Duke basketball fan so I made him this Duke checker set for his birthday.
  4. Prototype Wine & Glasses Rack

    I just finished a prototype build of a wine bottle and glasses rack. The incentive for my design came from an Instructables build by foradoescritorio: http://www.instructables.com/id/Wine-rack-for-a-bottle-and-2-cups-out-of-pallet/ Lumber used started out as ~ 5/8" pallet wood run through the...
  5. A couple of Pendants, made WITHOUT a Jig.

    Here's a couple of pendants I've made, without having a jig. The 1st is Oak, and the 2nd is Yew. I bought in the wooden beads, chord, clasps & boxes. The finish is 2 coats of Cellulose Sanding Sealer, & 2 coats of paste wax.
  6. Cremation Urns

    Was asked by a local funeral home to come up with a simple and plain urn box. I have done a number of these and have started to have the tops/sides lasered with different requests. Nothing fancy but seem to server the need.
  7. Maple and Walnut Chess Board

    So i made this chess board, never made one before and had some extra wood laying around so i thought i'd give it a shot.

  9. My New House!!!!!

    Howdy, What can I do with scraps, garbage and pallets? LOL! I had no idea myself! This Dog house is made from all of the above. I had some off cut pieces of particle board, some narrow rip strips, left over flooring, hunks of construction ply, some horrendous utility oak flooring and a few...
  10. Hand Tools
    Hello fellow woodworkers, I recently acquired an eggbeater hand drill and would like your help identifying it. I think it could be a 1922 Miller Falls 2B or a 2D (Based on this site http://oldtoolheaven.com/hand_drills/drill2.htm). I have not found any markings on it thus far. It is missing its...
  11. Hand Tools
    I recently cleaned out my father's basement and came across a few gems to add to my toolbox: 1. Miller Falls Eggbeater Hand Drill (possibly 2B or 2D model 1922) 2. Stanley No. 78 8IN Bit Brace 3. Rapier 10 (Gateshead England) Sliding Bevel Gauge. Looks exactly like the Stanley No. 18...
  12. Hand Tools
    This one has me stumped. I can barely-but not quite-read the logo on the blade, but the configuration of the blade in the frog and the straps on it should be enough to enable someone out there in Lumberjacksland to give me a brand on this thing, It's 14-1/2" long. Thanks in advance! Al
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I just bought a vintage Stanley Bailey plane off of craigslist. Previous owner said it was circa 1907 but won't know how to verify. Regardless, the only thing wrong with it other than needing a good base lapping was part of the frog was broken. The plane will still work because enough of the...
  14. Hand Tools
    I recently acquired an antique Stanley Bailey No. 5 1/2 Jack Plane. I am trying to figure out if it is a type 12, type 13 or a "frankenplane" with parts form different planes mixed together. According to the type study found here type 13 planes are distinguished from type 12 by the appearance of...
  15. Hand Tools
    I'm trying to restore a type 20 Stanley No.5 jack plane that I've had lying around for a while to good working condition. Everything seems to be in fairly decent shape except for one crucial component: the y-adjustment lever, AKA the "yoke", which of course in the type 20's is a cheesy assembly...
  16. Hand Tools
    Greetings! I am visiting the Central California area and was looking around at various antique shops for antique or vintage tools. At one of the shops the owner mentioned that I should contact Richard Purdy, who lives nearby in Carmel Valley, and who has an enormous vintage tool collection...
  17. Hand Tools
    I know there are a lot of people on LJs who like to go rust hunting for old tools and then like to try and find out as much as they can about them. I do too. I'm also sure that like me you've felt frustrated when you can't find anything online about the item you're researching. We owe a great...

    Hoping the experienced brain trust can help debug our jointer wiring. Just set up a whole new garage shop, finally got all the electrical up to code. All is working great, except our jointer trips the 20 amp GFCI outlet upon being plugged in. Doesn't even get as far as switching on. Outlet is...
  19. Hand Tools
    One this I should make clear: I salvaged that medallion from another saw. This saw's medallion was missing. Let me know if you need any other photos. I'm more or less just going off of the carved handle and the keystone etched saw plate. It was found alongside a nice D7 I plan to re-file...
  20. Hand Tools
    I have a hand plane that was my grandfathers and I would love to restore it to its old glory, but I have no idea what brand it is. It is 9 1/4" long, 2 3/16" wide. The only identifiable stamps are behind the frog: a "U" in a circle and a number 2 below a "MADE IN USA" stamp. There is no...
