  1. Kids Puzzle Stool, wedged tenon legs

    My wife and I are attending a baby shower this weekend, and as usual are bringing a homemade gift. I've posted these before so I'll spare the construction details. The top is 2 layers of 3/4 BB, legs are 1-1/4" oak dowels set at a 12 degree angle and wedged in. Finish is Minwax "natural" stain...
  2. Ash Slab Coffee Table

    This was my first log I took to the saw mill and had cut for myself. It was a fun project trying to work the crotch grain that changes direction every other inch. Split is keyed with english walnut and filled with black resin. Trying to develop my own style, square tapered legs with round...
  3. Split Top Hybrid Roubo

    The Back Story About a year ago I got into the hand tool thing. For me it was more of a personal choice so I posted all my power tools on craigslist and sold everything! I didn't really have a grasp on the methods and techniques but with the help of sources like The Hand Tool School, online...
  4. Cherry Stool

    This cherry stool was my first turning project. The legs have a bamboo look to them with a notch added at the widest points. The through tenons in the seat are wedged and it was finished with Deft Oil.
  5. Walnut Stool with inlaid Longhorn

    Hello fellow lumberjocks. This is another walnut stool I just completed. The longhorn is curly maple, and the tenon wedges are hard maple. Enjoy.
  6. Live Edge Sofa Arm Table

    Made this on a bit of sudden inspiration for what to do with a live edge cut off I got for free somewhere. Didn't know what wood it was, turned out to be aromatic cedar. Tiger Maple was actually from HD. I tried to keep as much of the live edge as possible, but the top shown is significantly...
  7. Bevel top bookcase/sofa table

    This is a bookcase/sofa table I made for myself. The first picture shows most of the features. This is my own design, which I first modeled in SketchUp. I'll mention right up front that there is something peculiar about the top row of through tenons. I reveal what it is at the end of this; maybe...
  8. Decorative Wedged-tenon Bench (Floating Tenon Joinery)

    Lumber - Walnut; Maple Grooving Tool: Veritas Rotary plunge base The wedges are "decorative" inlays, not real wedges.
  9. Timber Framing Sawhorses

    Made some solid timber framing sawhorses on the weekend. Made of 5" Cypress, mortise and tenon joints, draw-bored with 3/4" oak pegs. A little overkill in terms of bulk and strength but I had that cypress left over from another project. Going to start a small timber framing project soon so...
  10. Step Stool for My Kids

    My buddy found a mattress "pallet" (pine?) from an Ikea bed (see the pic here) discarded on the side of the road, and passed it on to me. I was happy to take the opportunity to make something out of a wood that wasn't a tropical hardwood (about all I can find here that's reasonably priced). The...
  11. Walnut Napkin Holder

    The lovely wife requested a napkin holder. I used a cheap Chinese version as an example, but it had screwed butt joints, which ruins the appearance underneath. In a hand tool class at Port Townsend, my favorite joint was a wedged through tenon. I made this mortise with my bench top mortiser...
  12. Maple Live Edge Table

    My son and his girlfriend purchased their first home. I built this maple table for their dining area. The table is 36" wide and 72" long. The top is made from two live edge maple slabs (originally about 2 1/4 inches thick) Unfortunately each slab had quite a twist. To maximize the...
  13. Redwood Screen Door

    I salvaged some redwood from a deck railing and put one of the boards to good use as a back porch screen door. First I squared the board and planed it down to fresh wood, then I re-sawed it into planks for the rails and stiles and cut the mortises and tenons. I was able to get all 6 pieces...
  14. Cypress Trestle Table

    I recently purchased some Cypress from a local couple who didnt have the time to design and build their table. I spent a couple days drawing the designs for the trestle legs to show off a unique idea that i like and that hasn't been mass produced. I used mortise and tenon joints for the whole...
  15. Walnut Stool

    This stool is based on a plan I found on FineWoodworking.com, "A Sturdy Footstool" by Mario Rodriguez. It is made out of some walnut I got from a lady I work with. Her grandparents cleared some land on their East Texas ranch and had all this walnut milled and dried. It is different than any...
  16. Kids Puzzle Stool

    Similar to my previous stool (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/264042), but for this one, the letters can be taken out and put back in. First I V-carved the outline of the letters on my CNC router in 1/2" baltic birch, then used the scroll saw to cut them out. I made the base the same way as the...
  17. Flip Back Step Stool

    Made this flip back step stool for my girls, and they're really enjoying it. Unfortunately my joinery was a lot gappier than I anticipated because I'm an idiot. This started out as 2 red oak boards I got at a garage sale, and a piece of what I'm thinking is sapele or african mahogany. I...
  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have to make (15) 6 1/2" X 6 1/2" post caps that contain a pyramid cut at the top. I have ripped the lumber that I work with creating two sides of the pyrmaid. Now I have to cut my stock down to 6 1/2" therefore I will have a 6 1/2" X 6 1/2" piece. My manager made one on a tablesaw but the...
  19. Joinery
    Hey everyone, I'm working on a trio of English Walnut cookies that will be coffee tables and I really want to try some though tenon joints for the base using some walnut dowels. I've got Veritas' reamer and tenon cutter and I think I've got the right idea but for a first timer I want to execute...
  20. Joinery
    Need some advice joining 3"x3" white oak stretchers with the four table legs made of the same 3×3 stock (made from glue-up). Legs are splayed out at 10 degrees. I want to do wedged through tenons, simply to make it look cool, otherwise, I think traditional drawbored M&T would be strong enough...
