  1. Plant Hanger for Topsy Turvey Containers

    I haven't posted in a while on either business or fun stuff, so I thought I'd share my Memorial Day project. We're not the best gardners, but like to grow fresh herbs (growing basil, mint, parsley, and rosemary in containers now). This year, we decided to try vegatables in those "Topsy Turvy...
  2. Pallet into Small desk

    I just recently picked up 2002 model Craftsman Jointer from a fellow woodworker in town. ($50, and it looked brand new!). I had been collecting reclaimed wood wherever I could and had picked up some pallets among other pieces. All of the wood for the table was taken from ONE pallet. The top is...
  3. Halloween Relief Sign

    Hey all, This was my first hand routed raised (Relief) sign. I drew up a quick pattern idea in photoshop this morning and went to work. The wood is 3/4 whitewood from HD. I glued on the pattern and routed out the detail with a 1/8 straight bit, and routed the rest with a 1/4 round nose bit for a...
  4. Laundry Drying Rack

    I recently built a drying rack for our laundry room. The frame is from 1×2 pre-primed stock. The back is leftover 1/4" paneling from a previous project. The rail section was drilled on a drill press to 3/8" depth and I believe the dowels are 3/8" set about 3" apart. The actual spacing was...
  5. Wheelbarrow

    This is what a woodworker builds when someone comes in her yard and steals the store bought one. I should be thanking the thief! Based on Spike Carlson's Family Handyman layout and directions, I took 1/2 inch plywood and made a slightly smaller version of his design. 1 Sheet of plywood and some...
  6. Cutting Boards of Christmas

    These are the finished cutting boards I made for Christmas gift this Christmas. I got them done in a nick of time, put the last coat of mineral oil on them Christmas morning. Nothing like waiting till the last minute. They are made from Maple with a touch of walnut.
  7. Small dovetailed postament or stool

    My latest weekend project. As our crassula ovata has grown too big to keep it on the window, then we needed to find a new place for it. A small and stable stool or postament was requested for this purpose. Glued up a few white oak boards in the middle of the week and finished the project on...
  8. Never win a award

    So always wanted to get into woodworking and have finally settled in a decent job for a year or two before I move again, so we'll not masterpieces by any opinion. Can't learn unless you mess up and make things that look well.. Like the above, although rather happy with my map! That's a trial for...
  9. Photo Display Blocks with Instructional Video

    I wanted a creative way to display a bunch of pictures that didn't require plugging in a memory card or battery powered digital frame, and I remembered the clear plastic photo cubes my grandmother had when I was a kid. This woodworkers take on that theme involves gluing pictures to a block of...
  10. Walnut Candle Holder

    This is a very simple project I made for my in-laws last Christmas. It is from a book on weekend woodworking projects Use a single scrap of wood and saw a series of L shapes. Drill candle holes in one end and through holes for the dowel in the other end. Make a knob. Glue in dowel. Finish...

  13. Blogs
    Introduction Well, I figured my first blog should be an introduction. I found Lumberjocks through the Wood Whisperer site. For the last couple of weeks I would check the site at work and home, starting to build what I can only now call an addiction. I finally signed-up because I felt that if I...
  14. Blogs
    It came to pass... The end of this past year saw the essential death of what was to have been a tiny shop/shed workshop. I went over ten months without completing or even beginning a single woodworking project and at the beginning of the year I was convinced it would be a VERY long time before...
