  1. Warping frame for restored Leclerck Loom

    My 14 year old daughter along with other members of the family are getting into a new hobby; weaving. We bought an old loom. It's a Leclerck from Canada. It is 50 to 75 years old and needed lots of help, refinish and parts. It is actually kind of fun, because it is all so mechanical. Here is...
  2. Quilt Block Keepsake Box

    I built this project from plans in a magazine. It's made of red oak, walnut and maple. Five or six thin layers of clear lacquer finish brought out incredibly rich color in the wood. The red oak is from a tree that lived in the back yard, but lost a battle with a snow storm four years ago...

  3. clocks....and a music box

    Have always collected clocks and like to make simple ones. Tried my hand with lucite but it is not as forgiving as wood! The Nativity music box has rotating star background.
  4. Long Grain Butcher Block

    I took all my leftovers from making end grain boards and made this nice little long grain block. I cant make them fast enough…people buy them on sight! Like (degoose) I love to watch the wood light up when I apply the oil and beeswax for sealing. I really do enjoy making these and knowing they...
  5. Redwood Deck

    I built this deck. It is an hour away so I was not going back to get more pictures, but it looks almost as good in the daylight. The deck boards, deck rails, and stair treads are garden grade redwood. The structural posts, deck rail posts, stair jacks, ledgers and beams are construction grade...

  7. 80 Foot Redwood Fence

    Well…this is really "woodworking" persay…but I was working with wood for 3 days to complete it…and there were some real "victories" for me in the process. As a "newbie" I had never put up a fence. This was a process that started 3 months ago for us, which is why I built the gate in April…and...
  8. Bed for my toddler - from construction lumber

    This is my first project that I feel is worthy of being seen, we are very happy with how it turned out. We needed a bed for my 2 year old that will eventually turn into a bunk bed. This is built as a twin, and will eventually stack on top of a full that is yet to be built for my older son. We...
  9. Handles for a marking knife and two violin knives

    I ordered a Ron Hock spear point marking knife and two single-beveled violin knife blades. These are the handles I made for them. I picked up an odd-sized cherry board from the bin at Rockler. I cut off a chunk long enough to make a handle and ripped that into three handle-sized blanks using...
  10. Segmented vase

    This is a segmented vase featured in Ray Allen's book which gives complete instructions on how to do it. It is made of maple, walnut and yellowheart, 11"D x 9"H. This vase requires alot of disc sander work.
  11. Shillelagh Walking stick

    This is a Shillelagh style walking stick I made for my friend who happens to be the local barber in the neighborhood I grew up in. He is in his 80's and still is out cutting fire wood on his property a few days a week. Over the years we have become good friends and when I started getting back...
  12. WILD TURKEYS

    This is a fun little weekend project. Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, these are fun for the kids at family gatherings or to give as a gift if you are going to someone elses house. My grandkids did the painting, and the good part is,they can be made with a minimum of tools. They are...

  15. Birthday Calendar (Revisited)

    Thanks to Steve Ramsey for this great idea a few years back. I just completed making 14 calendars for Christmas presents and sales. They all are about the same in appearance but I wanted to show this one. I took extra time and inlaid a thin mirror between the backing and scrolled out...
  16. Wood & Lumber
    Gentlemen - I am trying to make a decision on what moisture meter to purchase. I do a lot of large glue up projects for tables, wall hangings and the like and I have had slight issues with projects cracking and moving. I think the weak link in the process is not checking moisture content. What...
  17. Wood & Lumber
    Hey lumberjocks! I'm trying to cut wood strips about 1.75" x 0.4" x 48" long and wondering what method would be better. Mainly I'm unsure about how much sanding (?) is required off the bandsaw, and how much warp would typically be caused by both methods. Method 1: buy 8/4 or 10/4 lumber (if...
  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    I will soon embark on Spagnuolo's assembly table. I have one question regarding the full overlay plywood doors. When making a door with just ply (no frame and panel construction), will that plywood door warp over time? When finishing the project, should I seal the door on all sides? Would that...

    I'm working on a walnut coffee table top and have a question about keeping it flat. I have done some reading and talking to friends since I made the table top and now realize I should alternate the grain pattern so one board grain cups up, one cups down, etc. I will probably use bread boards in...
  20. Wood & Lumber
    Hello all. I am doing a large car port (30×30) for a customer and they do not want copper treated lumber. The structure will not be touching the ground. Steel footings in concrete keep it up 12 inches off the ground. The vertical posts and rafters (glued composite beams made from 4×4 or 2×4 or...
