  1. Ship's Wheel Clock

    Here's a project for people that like to do spindle turning and segmented turning. I'd say, though, that there's more woodworking than woodturning in this project. The photo shows the prototype that I recently finished which is 15-1/2" diameter. The The clock in this version is a 5-1/2" brass...
  2. Wooden Push Bike

    This is a push bike that I built for my daughter. Having no pedals or training wheels encourages her to learn balance. The seat is 12 inches off the ground and from wheel hub to wheel hub it measures 26 inches. My daughter is almost 2 and can handle the size well. The seat also is adjustable...
  3. Ship's Wheel Shadow Box #2

    After making one of these for his grandfather a year and a half ago, my brother-in-law asked for one himself as well. Now, if I had only remembered more than a week ahead of time, it may have gone a little smoother ;-) It took a little creative adjusting after realizing my 15 degree miter cuts...
  4. 3. Wheel of fortune for Ema.

    Project assignment in school was easy - do a quiz, with random question selection. It could be a dice roll, draw the numbers written on paper from the bag, even app on mobile phone availabe for free… but wheeeeeel, real wooden wheel - that was a challenge for kids. Kids decided to have wheel on...
  5. the circus is coming

    a potential contender for the Gorilla Glue contest. This fits into the "outdoor entertainment" aspect of the contest, however since the glue is only used to bond wood to wood, and not wood to another material, I'm taking my chances with a mixed media birdhouse in the contest…. with so few...
  6. Wagon wheel for Tevye’s wagon in Fiddler on the Roof

    I make props each year for a High school summer musical program. This year was Fiddler on the Roof and we needed a cart for Tevye. I asked for a bit of geometry help from an architect friend (see the Furnicular project I posted earlier) for the exact measurements. Cutting 2×4's to 14 29/32"...
  7. Wheel Chair Accessible Picnic Table

    My work has a back patio with a couple of picnic tables for employees to use. They are over 10 years old and are in really sad shape. I was going to replace the top of both tables, but as I was taking the first one apart it literally fell apart. New plan was to replace one of the tables with...
  8. ARRR The Pirate Ship | Custom

    This is a pirate ship bed that was custom made for an Interior Designer. Their client for this bed is a PGA golfer. It is a full size and I built another one similar to this one back in 2007. This one the designer made some modifications. We added a mast with crows nest, steering wheel...
  9. Wheel table

    This wheel was part of an old elevator system in a mill building I work in and dates back to the 1850-1860's. I thought the wheel with it's combination of steel and wood might make a good project so I got permission to dismantle. It was a bit tricky to get down because of the sheer weight but it...
  10. Fly Fishing Clock #4

    Had the chance to make another fly fishing clock. I do have a couple fly shops getting back to me, so I suspect I'll land at least a couple of these where fly fishers might get their eyes on them. Went with a piece of "Kelley Burl" and I really like how the gold clock hands work with it. I'm...
  11. treasure chest

    walnut and hickory
  12. The Old West

    Work In Progress
  13. Jalopy

    First toy I have made for a while, this is for my new grandson. I used a plan out of an old English book (I have recently moved to California from the UK), I have previously made some of the other toys from the same book so know that the plans are reasonably trustworthy. I glued two 3/4 red oak...
  14. Shark jaws mounted on Cedar

    My boyfriend and I have been enjoying antique treasure hunting lately, and last week he found these shark jaws. They were mounted on what looked like a piece of split firewood. I knew I wanted to redo the mount and happen to have some cedar tree trunk chunks lying around to dry. So, I found my...
  15. Outdoor 'house' shadow box

    I made this yard art for a friend of mine. She just bought a house and this is her housewarming gift.
  16. Rocking horse

    This is a rocking horse I built for my 9 month old baby grand daughter Abby. It came out great and she loved it. It built it from a design I seen in wood magazine. The plans were great. The hardest part was getting two colores stains on one board. Next one I may cut the mane out of 1/4 inch...
  17. A Groovy, Seussy Gift!

    This was Kenny's anniversary present to me, which I am and always will be absolutely amazed by, every time I look at it! (It reminds me of something that wouldn't look out of place in a Dr. Seuss book.) I'm using it as a pencil holder now, although I did try it out with my woodburning pens and...
  18. Navy Ship's Wheel Shadow Box II

    Here's another Navy Ship's Wheel that I recently completed. The customer wanted to mount some of his coins and rating pins around the outside so I had to build it a bit larger to accommodate. Overall I feel it turned out really nice. Padauk is another naturally beautiful wood. The finish is...
  19. Rotating Vise Base. Not a good carving exercise.

    Next in the series, a fairly basic project that started out as an exercise in decorative carving. As you can see there isn't much carving. This vise is one of my all-time favorite ebay purchases and came with an interesting rounding up tool. (Yet another vise mounted tool that is laying on a...

    hope this gives some people ideas for a nice little project. it is 36in tall & 16in wide & functioning wheel. this is on a pond we have on the property but you can make this smaller & run it on a fountain pump as well..
