  1. Trestle Bench

    This trestle bench was a piece I built at a local college woodworking course. The course was four full days so I took the time off work and spent the entire week working on this bench. That week has got me wondering if I can somehow take a few months off and get to the inside passage school of...
  2. Bench fit for a Cabin

    Well, it's going somewhere but it's not going anywhere…. My SIL asked me to make a bench for my BIL; stating that he has always wanted one for their mountain cabin in New Mexico. She knew I dabbled in woodworking and trusted me enough to come up with something after showing me a couple ideas...

  4. Deadblow mallet

    I built this deadblow mallet with *********************************** for the head, and hickory for the handle, wedged with a little bit of walnut. I followed a plan that I had saved on my computer from a long time ago, from Shop Notes magazine? I can't find the original plan anymore, just the scan I have. The pockets...
  5. Plough plane and blades

    In my quest to be completely flesh powered, I needed a plough plane to cut grooves. The plane and the blades were all made in house. The plane is made out of oak, and the blades were cut from a 3/16ths inch bar of O1 and then heat treated in my forge. As always, any questions or comments are...
  6. White Oak/Sapele chabudai table

    Buddy needed a small table and I had a scrap piece of oak barn wood and some 8/4 sapele scraps. When I ran the oak through the jointer i realized it was white oak, and it was fairly quartersawn/riftsawn. Super simple design, wedged through tenons that I cut with a plug cutter, and two small bow...
  7. 1st post! - Walnut Stool with Hollywood Wedges

    Long-time lurker, first time poster… Here's a little walnut footstool from a board that a friend was about to take to the thrift store, from some relative's farm's front yard. Rough-sawn, dried forever, and cupped as all get out. Maybe 6 feet long, 8" wide tapering to a couple inches. Wedges...
  8. Wood workout bench with TURNED joinery

    Friends: I thought you all might enjoy this workout bench I made for my wife. It's a sturdy piece and I got it done fast by turning round tenons on the lathe, fitting them into simple, drilled mortises and then wedging the joints for security. The whole thing was very fast to make and the...
  9. Wedged mortise and tenon bed frame

    First post on the site. Needed 2 new beds to replace old divan beds so this is the first of them. Wedged mortise and tenon bed frame with tapered legs made from unknown hardwood (originally 2 mantel boards that were stored in my late father in laws garage for around 30 years). Headboard and...

  12. Morris Inspired Chair

    I'm very happy to finally add this to the projects page. It seems like its been a blog forever. This is the 1st piece that I've made that could possibly be construed as fine furniture. I'm not sure it actually makes it, but I'm real happy with how she came out. Pretty comfortable too.
  13. exposition stand

    Exposition stand for long-handled prunning saws. I made it for our family business. We import and sell woodworking/gardening tools. It was a usefull practice for working out the joinery principles. All the joints were cut by hand. Surfaces were planed with a handplane and rubbed with beeswax. It...

  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I,ve just finished my first wooden handplane, a 28inch jointer, and would like opinions on a good finish to use to protect the wood from sweat etc. Wax, varnish or something else? I,m thinking something renewable is best. Any suggestions.
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am in the middle of refinishing an old rocking chair for our new nursery. It has a fairly thick layer of wax built up on it, and I know that it has to be removed before painting. I've used mineral spirits, steel wool and some elbow grease, but I'm feeling lazy and am looking for a quicker...
  17. Blogs
    Intro I've decided that I really need a workbench if I'm going to be doing any amount of 'real' woodworking. A board slapped on top of the tablesaw isn't really cutting it, and I could really use a vise. I'll be following the 'Getting Started in Woodworking' workbench design loosely with many...
  18. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have a 42×18 x 1 3/8" piece of Myrtlewood and a 52×14 x 1 1/8" piece of Walnut with live edges that I'd like to make into a coffee table that stands at 18" high to the top of the table. The Myrtlewood is to be the top. I was thinking two wide (14") Walnut legs. I will use all the live edges on...
  19. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I may have mentioned that I added a lot of machines to my shop last spring, summer, and fall with money saved on utility bills due to the extremely mild weather. For example, my September bill was $400 less than this January bill. Over seven months I bought a band saw, table saw, planer, cast...
