  1. Assembly & Outfeed Table

    This is my new assembly and out-feed table. It's done, but I'll be adding a part 2 video to youtube once I complete underneath cabinetry and things like that. I've been using it for about a week, and I love it. I used to just use my table saw as a flat surface, and for obvious reasons that...
  2. Bookcase

    Bookcase is made of solid yellow pine (except the back panel which is plywood). No glue or hardware is used in the assembly. I like things to be structurally sound with no unnecessary parts. All joints are sliding dovetails. Parts are interlocking such that the bookcase can be assembled only in...
  3. Work in Progress (Horse's head in oval)

    I like to do 'em big. This one is a little over 2 1/2 feet tall by 21 inches wide. I decided to make the oval border thicker than shown in my original pattern.
  4. Ultimate Work Center

    Well ok maybe not the most ultimate workstation but real close for me:) I designed this work center to fulfill the need for a for a compact, functional and mobile work center. Complete with castors, an air compressor and vaccum so far it's really been a great addition to the shop. I...
  5. Yet another workbench (with chain and linear bearing)

    I decided I needed a good workbench for my "new to me" space and decided to customize some traditional designs. It has some features I have not seen before, so I thought I would share my "thinking and doing" in a forthcoming blog. My workspace is small. I could not fit a long bench. A short...
  6. Photographing Your Work

    I use this simple setup to take pictures of what I make. I enlarge spacing as suited for the project. Made of scraps about the shop. Also 3 spring clamps. 3ea 8" clamp on lights. 3 LED bulbs 65W equivalent daylight. If not 'daylight' bulbs you get a yellowish tint in the lighting, not true...
  7. Disable child rocking chair

    Hi from a newbie here. This is a custom build proto-type of a rocking chair for a blind, learning disabled, physically handicapped child. The seating is adjustable for leg length and recline angle. The foot stool and hand grips are height variable and non-rocking features that allow for both...
  8. Improving the Effectiveness of your Work Bench

    My work bench is not a home made beauty most of us wood workers would like to build. It's a nice, high quality teak bench, just not as pretty as some of them we've all seen. I bought mine from a woodworking store that was going out of business. The original price of the bench was $...
  9. Caleb's Tiger & Superman

    I posted else where that I would put up a few pics of my son's Scroll Saw work. Superman is 1/8" Baltic Birch ply and was done when he was 12yrs. The Tiger is Oak with a Walnut base. This was done about 8 months ago when he was 13yrs. He just turned 14 and hasn't touched the saw for a little...
  10. draft horse #1 of series

    this is burned on a maple cabinet door. and colored with acrylics, chalk and colored pencils. it is the first in my draft horse series. enjoy
  11. The Buffalo Bedroom Set

    This king-size bed with two night stands was originally built for a store in Boise. When it came time to delivery we heard " we're behind on the rent, etc. etc." We are now using it in our booth at Home Show Daily in Boise because we don't have a bedroom big enough. The head board, rails and...
  12. Torsion Box Out-Feed / Assembly Table

    So this is my first attempt at a torsion box design. I've seen them all over LJ and have been itching to build one. I am in my last 3 weeks of civilian carpentry employment before I go Active Duty with the Navy as a Nuke for at least six years, so I definitely don't need one for myself (yet)...
  13. All Is Vanity

    The idea and design came from a Charles Allen Gillbert painting from 1892. The "Vanity" is considered by many to be one of the finest optical illusions ever conceived. The painting is an ambiguous illusion with an allegorical theme. The two aspects become clear as you study the figure. It can...
  14. Really Large Cutting Board - Walnut, Hard Maple, Padauk, and Purpleheart

    This cutting board is approximately 17" x 23" x 1-3/4" and is made of Walnut, Hard Maple, Padauk, and Purpleheart. This is the largest cutting board that I have made so far and it comes in at a nice 16.9lbs! This is also my 25th cutting board and this is the first time I didn't have to fix any...
  15. First big project for the shop

    After a week of storing every tool on the floor these draws and work bench couldn't have come sooner. They are the first "real" project to come out of the shop…ever so even thought they aren't perfect (trust me they aren't), I am pretty happy with them. Plus we (my father and I) have learned...
  16. DIY Moxon vice. 32" long.

    Simple moxon vice for my newly made light duty workbench. It's made of the same very old oak barn wood as the bench. The only thing that was purchased was 5/8" threaded steal rod, and some 6 minute epoxy. I mortised and epoxied the bolts on the underside of the bench and for the handle cranks...
  17. Cherry writing desk

    This is a writing table/writing desk I made two months ago. The design is not mine and was found by a friend who wanted a table/desk (credit to http://www.degaspemfg.com/ for the design). Really liked it, so I made two and kept one of the two desks. The first photo is of my desk, where it sits...
  18. Falcon cane #2

    This is a combo walking stick, cane. Started out as a cane, but the round part the falcon stands on was too green and moved and separated from the shaft…. Repair, put in corner, move on…... Been wanting to try carving, so with a repair piece, I thought I'd give it a try. The separation did not...
