  1. Eastward Bench

    Completed a pair of these benches in July 1998. This is a Thos. Moser Eastward Bench. Follow this link to see how I did at duplicating Moser's design. My parents came for a month-long visit while I was stationed in Germany. I was only able to take two weeks off while they were with us and...
  2. Shop Made Traditional Froe and Mallet (Riving axe)

    I made a froe (riving axe) and mallet for myself using wood from a tree that fell in our yard, and an old lawnmower blade. I used my angle grinder to shape the blade, which took a while because a lawnmower blade is not perfectly straight. After much sweat and grinding, I bolted it to a handle...
  3. My First Garden Bench

    A couple of years ago a guy at a garage sale gave me a couple of pine slabs. They were about 6' by 18" by 2" thick. We used them for around our fire pit and just put them on plastic crates. This worked fine for years. But not any more. My second daughter is getting married (I mentioned this...
  4. My Wooden Mallet

    Wooden mallet from oak with walnut mallets.
  5. Pine wood derby cars

    Derby cars for scouts from a couple years ago. The Star Destroyer was the cub-master's car. It looked really good painted (no pics) but it looks sweet bare wood too.
  6. Maple and Indian Laurel Mallet

    I got into woodworking about a month ago when I bought a dazuki saw and some chisels. Since then, I've made a couple of dovetail joints and some mortise and tenon joints. Those joints were made using a rubber mallet so I figured that my first real wood project should be a mallet that I can use...
  7. Walnut TV Stand

    Here's my walnut TV stand, just finished last week. I designed & built this for myself; I know that's against the rules! I was going for something with an appealing design, but also wanted it to be functional and allow lots of air flow for electronics, which is why I left the back completely...
  8. 2. Wedged-Base Workbench

    Inspired here I built my first workbench. I already had a machine laminated spruce slab with pretty raw uneven surface (1m x 2,4m), that served me for years as workbench on wobbly saw horses or scaffold stage. It was intended to be used as a framework slab for my concrete pillar creations, that...
  9. Picnic Challenge

    Every summer, the local woodworking club that I belong to, has a "picnic challenge". This year, each participant was to make something out of three pieces of wood provided by the club president. Each set of wood was as close to identical as possible. The three pieces of wood were: a wedge of...
  10. Too long without a vise.

    I build this bench last year. I have a woodworking vise, but wanted this to be all wood. The bench has no screws, glue or nails. All M&T and dovetails with dowels locking everything in place. One thing that prevents me from doing more is not having a convenient way to secure work. I looked at...
  11. "A Prayer for My Brother" Firefighter Wood Intarsia

    After I did the last piece to honor the military, I thought I would do the same for some other professions that deserve our thanks and remembrance. All of these men and woman that put their lives on the line to protect us deserve the upmost respect from all of us. I'm making the pattern for...
  12. Krenov Sawhorses

    I was getting sick of my black plastic sawhorses and had a pile of scrap wood laying around. Beats throwing the cut off pieces from previous projects into the fire pit. It is a standard krenov style sawhorse, but I added a few curves to lighten up the shape a bit. Everyone I have shown these to...

  15. Sampler Guitar

    SAMPLER This Strat style guitar body was constructed in three layers. The top layer is a sampling of reclaimed cherry, walnut, and mahogany woods. The center section was constructed using reclaimed oak. The bottom section features a three piece wedge design using reclaimed mahogany on...
  16. Japanese Sawhorses

    My first real woodworking project. I needed a pair of sawhorses that I can use around the shop, but I wanted to build something that would give me some practice in joinery and hand tool skills. I saw NikBrown's post here ... and decided to give it a shot. I made tons of mistakes on the first...
  17. Easy door stopper - made in Scotland by a Dane.

    Easy door stopper made in Scotland by a happy monkey On my visit in Scotland, I was in the mood for a little turning project one day. So I found some wood in the scrap bin at Jamies workshop, Oak to be precise. So I remembered seeing this type door stopper in a shop once and had them on my to...

  19. Yet Another Tapering Jig For Wedges

    Every now and then I needed some kind of tapered piece of wood in the past. I then used to devise some makeshift contraption to quickly perform the task at hand. Afterwards the jig usually went into the bin. Today I made some wedges for a couple of small planes I intend to make. And so I...
  20. Semi-chaise lounge with adjustable back

    With summer on the horizon, and most of us spending a lot of time at home right now, I wanted to design a patio chaise lounge with an adjustable back so I could lay in the sun or read a book out on my deck. That being said, I really wanted something compact that I could easily store away when...
