  1. Mountain Ash Walking Stick

    The found wood for this walking stick comes from a backyard mountian ash trimming. Often very usable wood is sitting close by but we don't always notice it. The handle is made from a elk antler , the first year elk grow straight antler , the antlers grow as 2 single spikes known locally as a '...
  2. Found Wood Spruce + Antler Cane

    This found wood cane uses spruce [no insects this time] with the outer bark removed down to the inner bark. I gentily warmed the bark to raise the sap in beads on the surface. Then with a rubber glove rubbed the sap onto the surface . I'd like to think this adds to the colour but I could just be...
  3. Carved Elk Button ,Diamond Willow Hiker

    The Mountian Lion was carved into a spur on the elk button [what's a elk button ?] . There wasn't enough of the little spur to carve both sides of the face but I think I like the way it turned out better . When you turn the the stick you kind of discover the mountain lion hiding there. The elk...
  4. Diamond Willow + Antler Tee Handle Cane #2

    I don't think this is really a true tee handle cane. I left enough antler at the rear of the handle so the whole hand can grasp the handle without needing to hook the index finger in front of the shaft. But I was hoping to keep the option open to still use this cane as a tee handle by leaving a...

  6. Berry Picking Stick W/ Antler + Diamond Willow

    Well have you ever been out picking Saskatoons berries or the like , and found a cluster of berries up high on a branch just out of reach ? You could make yourself a hiking stick along these these lines , that has a built in hook. Just take that hook and reach up and hook that branch, and bring...
  7. Right Side Up Spice mills

    Christmas 2006. Everyone of my poor relatives got stuck with Right Side Up Pepper and Salt mills - based on J.R. Beall's design. These feature the cool CrushGrind ceramic mills (you guessed it - www.crushgrind.com). This pair have black palm inlay around the shaker heads. Both the walnut and...
  8. Thorsen House Dining Room Cabinet

    Our kitchen needed a feature piece, and as always they benefit from a little more storage (if only decorative in this case). The Thorsen House dining room cabinet is a classic example of built-in furniture from the Greene & Greene canon. Unlike the original - which was deeply set into the wall -...
  9. Jewelry box - curved front

    This is Wood Magazine's Jewlery Box found in the Dec '09 / Jan '10 issue. I found the velvet shaped partitions for the drawers at Bed Bath and Beyond. Once I saw them, I knew my wife would enjoy the built-in organization. So I built the drawers around the partitions and the box around the...
  10. Home Made Stain From Steel Wool and Vinegar

    Here I want to share the dirt cheap home-made stain I used on the two country kitchen credenzas I just finished. You get the home made stain made by soaking a steel wood pad in white vinager and a bit of balsamic vinager (to get it darker) for three weeks. On this particular project I added one...
  11. Quarter-sawn Morado Cigar Pen and Box

    This pen was turned on an endgrain blank, crosscut across the width of the board, rather than ripped along the length. The box (from a Doug Stowe design) was made of Jatoba with Fishtail Oak end scales. 5mm barrel hinges. Finish is General Finishes Arm-R-Seal wipe on. Tray liner is the...
  12. figured maple tea box

    Decided to foray into the boxmakers' territory a while ago after seeing projects by Alan, Bob and Blake (and also test the table saw adjustment, the sharpness of the restored hand planes, and use up some nice cut-off pieces). The sides of the box are figured maple. The top and bottom are...
  13. Handstand blocks

    This is set of handstand blocks for my friend - she teaches yoga, and does some acrobatics. Apparently, blocks of different height need different muscles to get onto, so this set includes interchangeable pipes of 4", 8" and 12" length. Some people say that sloped blocks are easier on wrists, so...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I know there are a number of other post on this, but I thought I'd join in anyway. I made this track saw earlier this month. The 5' track is made of a 1/2" birch plywood base with 3/16" plywood attached. I could have routed a slot in a 3/4" piece as well - I just didn't have any. I wanted...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am looking for some advise on how to apply a wipe-on poly or varnish finish. Can you use any oil-based clear finish for this or does it have to be one labeled "wipe-on"? What is the best applicator? I am refinishing some kitchen cupboards and furniture with a lot of raised panels and such...
  16. Blogs
    Sketchup Plan We just adopted a boxer after having fostered a few of them and falling in love. Tyson is a great dog and I figured a dog like him needed a nice bed. I drew the design using Sketchup and it has been in the planning stages for quite a while. I bought a Kreg pocket hole jig and...

    Overview and Disclaimer I am in no way connected to Minwax. As a professional woodworker, I view their retail product line as not quite professional level, but quality nonetheless. I also allow that any retail product has the potential to be an effective coating to have around. I build...
  18. Finishing
    Hi LJ's, After seeing the Woodworking for Mere Mortals video on wooden neckties I had to make one. So got some thin stock at Woodcraft, Birds Eye Maple and Bolivian Rosewood. Everything was going fine til I was waiting for the third/final coat of Arm-R-Seal to dry that I realized most of the...
