  1. Apartment Privacy Fence

    I have been living in an apartment for the past 2 years and shortly after I moved in this became my first apartment built project. Its nothing fancy just some treated 1" X 6" X 5' and a couple of 2" X 4" X 8'. I had the 1" X 6" cut at the store to size and screwed every thing together in the...
  2. Oval Three-Wood Band Saw Boxes

    March, 2010-These are fun to make, and there is very little scrap. First is a glue up of some wood. The top is poplar, but I can't tell you what the other two are. They are from the cut-off pile at an exotic wood store I go to. The smaller box is made out of the core left over from the...
  3. Two-Wood Band Saw Boxes

    March, 2010-More fun boxes, with very little waste. The exotic wood in the middle came from the cut-off pile from Anderson Lumber Company in St. Petersburg, Florida. The oak came from an old book rack I picked up at a thrift shop for $1. These are sanded to 600-grit and finished with Watco...
  4. Hanging Wall Cabinet with some Blues

    My first hanging wall cabinet - that isn't shop furniture. I emulated a couple different plans I found from FWW. Here's some specs: 23.5"h, 11"w, 7"d - knotty cherry, walnut pulls, beetle kill pine for back and drawer bottoms - federal blue milk paint with dewaxed shellac on top - Watco Danish...
  5. Oak Wine Boxes

    These boxes are made of red oak for the sides and black walnut for the bottom. The finish is Watco Danish Oil - Natural. This looks perfect on a simple box and is super easy to apply. These were donated to a charity fundraiser auction as part of a wine package that my wife wanted to put...
  6. Router Table

    The Table Base I wanted an inexpensive router table so I decided to make one. This was my first mortise and tenon attempt, so I made a few rookie mistakes, but not anything that couldn't be fixed. The table went together very easily and glued up nice and square. I used construction pine and...
  7. Hard Wood Splenda Box

    April, 2010-This is basically a rectangular box with a lid, but with a couple of variations. I saw some expensive band saw boxes for sale in an up-scale store recently. That inspired me to try rounding the four sides of this box. Since I have the Carter Guide on my band saw (which I love!)...
  8. Small Band Saw Boxes from Branches

    April, 2010-Just for fun I decided to make some small boxes out of some bushes I cut way back. The darker one is from a pink trumpet bush from the back yard, and the lighter one is from an unknown bush in the front yard. The darker one was made using traditional band saw box techniques. On...
  9. Saw Station

    I finally decided to get things more organized and build a miter saw bench and storage. I incorporated the bench into the wood rack I built earlier. The outside is maple with just Arm-a-seal to protect it. I got the counter top from Lowe's for $46, and made the fence out of maple with t-slots...
  10. Walnut 4-Pot Herb Tray

    Fairly straightforward project here. One piece of walnut, routered out, chiseled, sanded, and finished. Never having made anything with a router before, this is my first project using one. I love my new Bosch 1617-variable speed router! I purchased the combo. and used the plunge router base...
  11. Cherry Slab Kitchen Table with Steel Crafted Legs

    UPDATED - Final table is 3rd image. Last image is the slab when I received the raw wood. I haven't posted in a while but I have been busy. This is my latest project. An 8 foot 1.5" Cherry Slab, walnut and cocobolo butterfly inlays to check the cracks. The slab will be mounted to a solid steel...
  12. My First Picture Frame

    Being new to woodworking, everything takes me a loooooong time. This frame was certainly no exception. I spent probably 40+hours on it, from designing it, to getting materials, to replanning, reworking, working, and finishing. I learned quite a few things along the way though, including what did...
  13. Salt Cellar - bubinga

    I saw this design on TWW and decided to try it. We really like using sea salt flakes at the table, and taking a pinch out of a salt cellar makes a lot more sense than a salt grinder. I cut a solid bubinga bowl blank on the bandsaw with the table tilted at an angle. Then after slicing the lid...
  14. It's Not What You Use, But How You Use It

    This bench was constructed using only pockethole joinery. I thought I'd use a fairly basic joinery technique here that quite a few either have access to, or can easily learn to use. Sometimes it's not what you use, but how you use it! With this project, I tried to take something...
  15. 3 Drawer Cherry Jewelry Box

    This is a jewelry box I saw on some other member's project pages that I decided to make. The box is made out of some leftover cherry and 1/8 hardboard. The hinges are Brusso stop hinges. The finish is Watco Danish Oil and Watco Satin Finishing wax. I plan to make some more of these using...
  16. Jewelry box from scrapwood.

    One of the very first project by a woodworker, who has been woodworking for only better part of 4 months. Entire box is made form different scrapwood pieces and only modern tool used is a router. Table saw is also used but that is from 1940-s. Sides are made from old drawer material, dont know...
  17. TJ Cross Inspired Clock

    I saw one of TJ CROSS's many beautiful clocks and liked it so much I wanted to attempt it myself. I made the clock looking at TJ's pictures from a wood called Panga Panga. If you have not, check out TJ's work its phenomenal.
  18. Tsunami Band Saw Box in Four Woods

    October, 2009-This is my rendition of the band saw box on the cover of "Building Beautiful Boxes with Your Band Saw" by Lois Keener Ventura. I had fun making this box, and it was not as difficult as it may look to beginners. It is four woods glued up to make the carcass. And the handles are a...
  19. Three Wood Wave-Style Band Saw Box with Two Drawers

    December, 2009 - The contrasting woods made this box interesting. The center is pine, and the two thin layers are aspen. The dark wood is a hard wood purchased from the scrap pile at a lumber yard in St. Petersburg (Florida). Each draw is cut so that it has a divider, and so there are 4...
  20. Shower Seat Top

    Third project was this shower seat top. The teak one we bought rotted (?!) in less than 3 months. I built a duplicate out of Western Cedar and it lasted twice as long but eventually cracked (it was too thin of stock). I built this one after out of poplar as a backup which we are now using. I...
