  1. Welsh dresser in pine and beech

    I have not posted for a while because I have been working on this. The project, on and off has taken two years, but it's been the main thing since Christmas 2010. All has been hand made, apart from a bit of routing and the trusty band saw. i didn't turn the columns as I have no lathe. Timber is...
  2. Welsh Love Spoon

    There is a tradition in Wales where men carve a wooden spoon for their sweetheart as a token of their love. The designs often include symbols like locks, keys, hearts, etc. Do a image search on "Welsh Love Spoons" to see examples. This is a basswood spoon I carved after a visit to Wales. The...
  3. Kids Stick Chairs

    I just finished these Stick Chairs I made for two boys. They are made out of SYP and Oak. One set of legs was made from white oak firewood, the other oak parts are red oak. They were inspired by pictures of Welsh Sick Chairs I've found online. The finish is amber shellac which I'm not happy...
  4. First attemp at hand carving

    My first attempt at hand carving. I made this Welsh Love Spoon for my wife as an anniversary gift a couple of years ago. I used my scroll saw to cut the pattern out of a piece of 1/2" material.

  7. Three Welsh-Style Love Spoons

    I had almost forgotten about these Spoons, but then I ran onto the photo this morning while going through the computer. Love Spoons have a rich heritage in both Love and Family bonds, two things that I hold dear. For Mother's Day, I carved a spoon for my Wife, my Mom, and my Mom-in-Law. These...
  8. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Just finished watching the latest episode of "Rough Cut" and it reminded me of something I still haven't grasped fully. I don't understand why you need a haunched tenon. Why not just have a tenon with four shoulders? seems like it would make for easier machine setup. Can someone enlighten me?

  10. Jigs & Fixtures
    Hey! Many of us have made or purchased zero-clearance throat plates for table saws and even miter saws. I certainly have made those items for those particular tools that I own. A tight throat plate reduces tear out with miter crosscutting and also keeps large items from falling down into the...
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    Lets play a game: Name that lumber. I got this lumber from a pallet at work and I have no idea what kind of wood it is. I have looked through my encyclopedia of wood and came up with Australian Blackwood or Australian Silky Oak but am still uncertain. It could also be a mahogany, but it looks...
