  1. Office Suite

    I built this office set for the inglenook in our 100 year old farmhouse. The pieces are stained dark to match the trim in the house. I used pine lumber from home depot for its rustic appeal. There are a lot of imperfections in the wood and I didn't bother to fill or repair them. The main...
  2. Wire Bending Tool A 15 year project finished.

    A local tool collector of note had an 18th century lathe set up in a custom trailer, a nice mobile shop of tools from the mid 1700's. His "have lathe will travel" exhibit. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the lathe. We drove it to a local chapter meeting of clock and watch collectors...
  3. Apple Bird Feeder

    These are 6 piece bird feeders that took about 30 minutes to make. Got the idea out of a scroll saw magazine. There is a peanut butter recipe that you can use also to feed the squirrels with. I think the apple is easier and less expensive though.
  4. Pallet Skeleton Halloween Decoration

    Last weekend I did my second halloween decoration of the year and made this neat little skeleton from free pallet wood. I had some soft 3/4 pieces of old pallet wood lying around, after gluing on a pattern I made up on photoshop I cut all the pieces out on the scroll saw. Did some fine detailing...
  5. Business Card Holders

    Have you ever had an idea that seemed excellent in your mind, but not so great when brought to reality. This is one of those. It seemed like a great idea to get rid of some old copper wire I had laying around. I was planning on making a bunch of these, but the wire (even when soldered) is...

  8. Projects Mini Tetrahedral Tensegrity Table

    I've been fascinated by tensegrity structures, particularly tables, since I first encountered them on the web. I've also seen tensegrity projects here on LumberJocks. At first glance, they look impossible, but they make sense after you study them for awhile. In a nutshell, tensegrity tables are...

  12. Baby Changing Table

    I used a design, not my own. This is maple plywood and cherry trim. I like the two tone look.
  13. Table Lamp

    I made this lamp to replace the one we had on our side table in our dining room. It is made out of 3/4" solid oak and 3/4" solid purple heart. The shape is of an octagon. I made eight oak moldings 3/4" square x 9" long and gave one of the corners a 1/4 round cut on both sides so it was...
  14. Dragonfly

    My version of a dragonfly made from heart pine and hardware cloth. The pattern on his wings is from yellow and red telephone wire i salvaged and wove into the wire cloth. It's approx 24" long and 38" wingspan. PS: The wind machine in the background is one of many i've made from crazy found...
  15. Claro Walnut Bowl With Wire

    Here is a Claro Walnut Bowl I did with a little something extra. I decided to try adding a second medium to this turning. Wire. This is my first attempt at any kind of carving in a LONG time. Tried to make this look like the wire was cinching the edge of the wood. Kinda like it was cloth? Wife...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi All, A neighbor recently purchased a SS ICS 3hp. He asked me to help him set it up and put it together considering I used to own a SS PCS 3hp. When we went to plug it in, I realized that it didn't come with a power cord. Evidently, it's meant to be hardwired to the breaker or something...
  17. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Hey, Guys. I just bought a used Delta 50 - 850 roll around dust collector. LAST NIGHT. I got it to the shop this morning, immediately connected it up to my planer and went to work. After operating for less than two hours, smoke was pouring from the power switch. I immediately shut down the...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Seems this is a constant subject of debate here on LJ. I thought I would add a little to what I posted on a motor thread and post it with a lot of search tags. I have been doing mostly motor and control work for 43 years. I don't know much about plugs & lighting and really don't much care...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So I think that we have all run out of plugs in the woodshop or just needed to add a circuit breaker. I ran into this myself, but here is my deal, I rent! So I can run allot of extension cords and cause major no nos in electrical safety, second ask the land lord to pay for the electrician to...

    Glazing When framing anything using glass or acrylic as the glazing, there should be an air gap of at least 1/8" between the art or object being framed and the inside surface of the glass. This is to prevent moisture, from the condensation that will almost certainly occur, from transferring to...
