  1. Repeating Curve Walking Sticks

    I try to do different projects to make sure I can justify my various tools. These are from 2×4's of cedar, redwood and fir. I simply draw out the pattern, cut it out with a jig saw, run up and down each side with a router and a 3/4" round over bit to make what, essentially, is just a very bent...
  2. Little Bridge for A Customer's Pond

    A lady asked me to replace her old "bridge" with a new one. The old one had a ridiculous arch in it that cause many people to slip and fall if it was even slightly wet. I wish I had taken a picture of it. I put three 2×4's underneath and tapered them at the ends to meet the ground. I am always...
  3. Wooden router plane

    Tool-making bug is itching me. Earlier I said that I needed router plane for my workbench build, but what the hell, I just wanted to own one. Honesty is the best policy :-) . . Here is my starting point: cutter with threaded rod and milled facets: Since I had no "real" cutters available here...
  4. Running Bib Display Board

    Nothing like combining two hobbies into one. This project was inspired by my wife (she also did the finishing work - great job with the colors and font) to display the family's growing collection of racing bibs and associated medals. Just a simple piece of MDF quick cut on the tablesaw...
  5. This Old Crack House First Master Bedroom

    This first Master Bedroom , one of two that "This Old Crack House" hosts is part of the new addition project. It features a walk in closet along with a walk in and walk threw 3/4 bath room with a over sized shower and other amenities. Besides the nine foot ceilings and lively colors, each...
  6. Walking Stick or Poor Man's Meteorite Detector

    I made an order for several rare earth magnets [from KJ Magnetics] in the one hundred pound pull range for use in securing switch boxes, mounted on ten foot cords, to my dust collectors. I had one left over,a 2×6 laying around and was inspired by a friend's conversation about metal detecting...
  7. Caragana Hiking Stick

    The found wood for this hiking stick comes from shelter belts here on the prairies. Farmers plant caragana around thier yard sites and fields to block the wind and trap winter snow. Caragana is a hardy bush that will withstand drought and the bitter prairie cold. But caragana was not a wood to...
  8. Bent Wood Arbor

    Nine layers of 3/4" x 6" wide boards; bent and glued with waterproof glue. Band sawed to form smaller radius on lower edge. Then do it all over again for a second one. I glued on a layer each day as it took quite a bit of force to do more than one and it was like wrestling a snake! It's held...
  9. My second paid project

    I built this for the same woman who had me build the train. She wanted a foot bridge that resembled a train. She supplied the wheels and left the rest to me. It is a total of 14 feet long and 3 feet wide. It is made from cedar.
  10. Woodcarving
    Just bought a Radar Carver off craigslist. It was set up for just doing gun stocks and was set on a 2" x 28" x 72" maple butcher block. With only twelve inches between the stylus and bit, I would have been limited for sign making and other carving. To grow the units capabilities, I could...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am going to look at a jet 6" jointer today. Asking $125. It is an older model, maybe early 90's. It has some rust, but the seller said that it is just surface. Want to know if this is a good deal or not? I am going to look at it later today, so any input would be appreciated ASAP.
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    A few years ago I designed an adjustable height workbench. I also incorporated a mobile base into the design. People who saw my bench REALLY liked it and I started offering plans for it on line. But, I have no idea how much people are interested in having a mobile base in their workbench! I...
