  1. Trestle Table Design for Patio

    This table is made of Alder and is my own design. The base is a trestle where I utilized twin stretchers that are assembled using a tapered mortise with a wedge made of Sapele. These are through tenons as you can see in one of the detail photos. My inspiration for this came from a table made...
  2. Arts and Crafts mirror

    First project using mortis and tenon. Made the tenons through tenons and wedged them with Ipe wedges. The primary wood is white oak. The corbels are a tracing from a LJ Stickley chair we have.
  3. Traditional Joinery Shoe Bench

    This bench uses traditional joinery wherever possible to lock the individual wood pieces together. The top and shelf slats are Ambrosia Maple, while the base is Cherry. The surfaces are left rough sawn to create an aged, rustic appearance, and lightly hand scraped to create a smoother texture...
  4. Toolbox of love

    Today is my Nephew's fourth birthday. My sister said he's been showing interest in tools lately so it only made sense for me to reinforce that interest with his very own tool tote. He has a plastic wrench that is 14" long so this tote is about 15" long. I think I should have put wheels on this...
  5. Two Cherries Trestle Table & Chairs

    This set had been rolling around in my head for about a year before I started building it. I knew I wanted to build a trestle table for our dining area and chairs that were simple and elegant. I chose American black cherry and Jatoba, commonly known as Brazilian cherry. The table top is cherry...
  6. Custom Kids Stool

    This project required use of my CNC router, router table, table saw, belt sander, and drill press. First I cut two 1×8 poplar blanks to about 15" long, and used my CNC router to put a 1.5" radius on the corners. That could have been done much more quickly with a scroll saw or bandsaw, but I...
  7. 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...
  8. Blogs
    Workbench Base Finished I am busy building a split top Roubo workbench and have recently finished the base. The base is built from some left-over African Rosewood I had, while the top will be Hard Maple. The vices and sliding deadman will be made from Leadwood. Next up is installing some...
  9. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Hi everyone - I'm looking for an educated response on the hazards (or lack thereof) of surface mount electrical boxes around sawdust. I have several outlets in my show (coughgaragecough) that are regularly exposed to sawdust. They have armoured cable running into them, and there are some holes...
  10. Woodturning
    Hello I am new to turning wood but so far I enjoy it! :) I bought an old lathe and I want to try and turn pens and smaller items. The lathe itself has a 3/4" shaft (male side) that is spun by the motor. The center pin or plate (for bowls) is attached by a set screw (female side). From what I...
