Phone holders

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Phone holdersMade these phone holders as gifts this year. I made a prototype first out of a 2×4, and it immediately warped, so that gave me the idea of the curved front and back pieces – two points of contact in the front, one in the back – if it warps, it will always be stable.I also made a game-time decision to change the way the two pieces fit together. I originally had a horizontal slot, but with the hole for the phone charger, it made for a really weird looking cut, made the right-side of the phone rest a little flexible, and really sacrificed strength. So instead, I decided on a double notch and double tongue design. It worked great and it's nice and strong, but now the pieces tend to slip a bit. I don't think they'll fall apart, but they don't necessarily seat fully always after using it a few times.On one piece I tried the acetone toner transfer again to put a logo on the back side. This one was by far my first attempt – I think I'm figuring out the best method. Lots of pressure with a flat-tipped stick, and just the right amount of acetone does the trick for me.Finish is a few coats of spray shellac.I made 6 of these in total, 2 maple, 2 cherry, and 2 red oak. The oak ones are my favorite; IMO they have the most character.

Air Filter/Outfeed Table/Sanding Station

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Air Filter/Outfeed Table/Sanding StationShop Air Filter/Sanding Station/Outfeed Table with adjustable height rollers. It has a 4 speed HVAC squirrel cage blower, with a 1 reusable filter in front of a 4 Merv 12 pleated filter. The rollers are adjustable so that it can be used as an out-feed table for my table saw, band saw, or planer. The right side of the roller is also micro adjustable to adjust for any variance in floor levels.
Next step is to make the top a torsion box with perforations to have it more readily evacuate the dust from the sanding operation.The blower motor can turn over the air in my shop in less than five minutes. It is amazing how well it clears out the dust from the air.

snowstorm cutting boards

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


snowstorm cutting boardswhat do you do when it snowed 10 inches and the wind is blowing 30 mph plus? i fire up the saws and sanders and finish some cutting boards that i started a month ago. the big boards are 12×16 x 1.5 inches thick made from leftover maple butcherblock countertop that the boss was going to throw out. they have router around the outside for easier lifting. finished with butcherblock oil. the one closest is made from purple heart and a mystery wood i got off a pallet at work. i like the color and grain of the boards i had to take them home and make something of them. the far one is walnut and mystery pallet wood also. these two will get handles on the ends and be used as serving boards. i willl post a picture of these complete when i can get somewhere after this storm is over and find some handles.Happy New Year to all the lumberjock people. i have a great time seeing what others are making and learning new things everyday.

A Mitre-BOO

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


A Mitre-BOOBoys and Girls,On the bandwagon of my Woodpeckers aircraft grade aluminium love fest, I was hesitant to review these mitre clamp sets and thought I'd just brag about the box I made for them.As always, ho-hum, designed in SketchUp
and battling the urge to laser cut, I decided to try out my finger-joint jig and the proverbial PVC/clamp glue-up
Finding my fingers in joint, I carved a box out of 10mm pine now that is a feat in itself. growing 10mm pine trees!
Well it worked and I got a reasonable pine box. I have always had issues joining top box half to the bottom, I put a contrasting merbau rim around the join
which I thought looked flash… and so did the termites… hey just gagging… personally, I hated it!Why A Mitre-Boo, rc may ask rc, Why a Mitre-Boo? pretending I heard him when I designed the engraving for the box top I intended to call it A Mitre-BOX, however, the effigy of the mitre jig looked like a ghost image to me add 2 + 2 together and even for large values of 2 you still get 4 DOH!
Finished…. and then put 3 lathers of tung oil on it… after removing the jigs.How do you use it? You don't unless you have a set, however, this is how I use it/them
Now I shall attempt not to condone my extravagance towards these jigs, however, another alternate in my arsenal are these end clamps by WP,
though not the pretty, pretty aluminium, but rather boring plastic!File this under another one of the duck's fantasies and save yourself the trouble of reading it!PS. I posted this to prove that there is life for a box after MDF.

Lidded BowlI'm finishing up the two mesquite slabs that I got from john at the saw mill and these pieces said they wanted to be a candy dish so I turned them into a lidded bowl that can be used as a candy dish.
It is 6 1/2” and 3” high and finished with Danish oil and buffed and waxed for a natural look. I could not get away from the sap wood without really turning it a lot smaller so I planned it into the bottom.Cheers, Jim

Hickory & Walnut Trestle-Style Dining Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Hickory & Walnut Trestle-Style Dining TableI finished my dining room table that has been in the works for several years now!
My goal was to complete the table in time to celebrate Christmas with my family gather around it, and that goal was met. We hauled in the table on Christmas day and some of us (I have a larger family) were able to gather around it. I'm pleased with the results overall, even though there are a few minor flaws. My family likes it a lot, and that is worth more than my opinion!Some of the details of the table:-Hickory construction with Walnut slats and pegs for accent
-German metal equalizer table slides (Pottker brand)
-Table is 6' without leaves, and 8' with the two leaves added in
-From the first drafting of plans to completion was 3+ years
-Finish schedule is 1 coat of danish oil, followed by 3 coats of wiped on Arm R Seal poly (4 coats on the top surface)
-6 dining room chairs will need to be built next! See the design they will follow in this project: https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/254274For more details of my table build, I did a blog series:
https://www.lumberjocks.com/PPK/blog/129606And finally, here are a few more (very non-professional and messy house) photos of the finished table:

Octopus Automata

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Octopus AutomataThis is a simple, very easy to make Octopus Automata that I made for my daughter this Christmas.The wood for the octopus came from a wine crate and is 3/8” thick.
The dowels are 1/4” and the cams were cut from 1/4 poplar using a whole saw.
(I plugged the center hole and then drilled a new 1/4” hole off centered to create the cam.The action is really smooth since the tentacles naturally want to ride along the cams because of their angle.Painted with craft store acrylics and then finished with a clear gloss acrylic spray coat.You can see in one of the pictures that his body is hollow. Originally he was going to have eyes that blink but that will be in version 2.0Here is a short video of him (her?) in action

Wright Style Table LampI came across a table lamp plan by David Thiel where he made his version of a Frank Lloyd Wright lamp he saw in the waterfall house. His instructions were excellent. I changed the base a bit but otherwise stayed true to his plan.Resawed a walnut plank to 1/4” then joined the two sides with a miter joint. Base is maple. Finished with shellac.

Workbench LED lamp - let there be light. (post)Workbench LED lamp
let there be light.This project is about getting a good light over the workbench.I had already thought up the project in my head when I started, as I wanted a work light, that would be super slim and fit in over my workbench, that meant a colour that was woody and a simple shape - again it was less is plenty, that was mixed with recycle.This post is from the following blogs:
Workbench LED lamp: https://www.lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/130457

2. Routing for the LED strip.
3. We got a lamp shade…
4. Making the arm / wall holder.
5. Bonus material, French cleat stuff. Smiles.
6. – and there was light…

Hope it can be to some inspiration, or at least spread some light.Best thoughts,MaFe

Anybody else glue together all their scraps this Christmas and call it a gift?

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Anybody else glue together all their scraps this Christmas and call it a gift? I save all the scrap I generate from cutting board appropriate woods, and usually once a year make done end grain cutting boards if I haven't found a better use for the stuff. This year I made a maple workbench top, and a walnut dresser with maple drawer sides, so lots of good scrap!Not having a decent router or router table my preferred edge treatment has been a simple under bevel, which I still really like! Accomplished on the bandsaw and cleaned up with a handplaneAs always these are “triple sanded” – wet and knock back the raised grain a few times with 1k grit until the grain doesn't raise anymore. This technique is the secret to making good kitchen implements, in my opinion.

Tap Handles

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Tap HandlesMaking a large batch of something really teaches you a lot about your process and how to make sure everything is set up to just so. I used my laser printer and acetone to transfer the ink to the wood. After making a lot of bad transfers I finally figured out the technique that worked best for me. Now I feel like I can use this method for just about anything. And given the amount of sanding to get the messed up ink off I say these should hold a long time with the three or four layers of poly added.

Merry 'Clock'mas?Like many other Lumberjocks before me, I finally got around to making this clock for my daughter. The Wood magazine, Issue 198 (July 2010), and the clock kit has been on my shelf for 7 years.Used quarter-sawn sycamore. Sanded to 220. Finished with clear satin lacquer. Sanded after first coat with 320.Judging by my daughter's reaction, time spent in the wood shop was worth it!

Chippendale stool

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Chippendale stoolWe needed a stool to match an old Chippendale wingback chair that was to be reupholstered for the bedroom in the new basement. It looked like an easy project, and I had some cherry on hand, so here I went. Construction took an afternoon; the mortise and tenon joints took the most tmie, as they were cut buy hand.After staining and the first coat of finish on the base came the dilemma – how to get the small spatters of black on it to match the chair. Finally clipped 4 or 5 straws from the plastic broom in the shop. Taped them together , dipped them in black enamel and flipped droplets on the base – worked perfectly.The result matches the chair quite well (and a lot cheaper than buying one!).

My first cutting board

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


My first cutting board So this is my first cutting board. It's also the first time using a jointer, planer, and first time using my new to me unisaw. I have to say, i love the unisaw as it's a huge upgrade from my 1950s craftsman table saw. No more checking for square everytime i move the fence. The unifence is a great fence. It's also my first panel glue up. I used a cherry board and a few scraps of maple for the inlay. It's approximately 18x12. Sanded with 80, 120, 150, 180, and 220. finished with tried and true original wood finish. I wanted as a good food safe finish. I think the linseed oil and beeswax is perfect since it doesn't contain any solvents or petroleum based products. I almost dropped it when moving it after finish and made a small dent in it. So I used the wet towel and iron trick to swell up the wood to remove the dent. Worked like a charm and I was nervous because it's a present for me wife Christmas morning, only 12hours away. I then gave it a rub down with 0000 steel wool and another light coat of finish. I'm happy with it. I learned a lot. I wish I didn't have the knots but it will do. Can't wait to make more things now.

Christmas Cookie (table)This table project was for a family member for Christmas have a few small items left to iron out but it is close to completion. The tree section is about 38 at its widest point and I discovered it is not easy to move this around. The (5j walnut bow ties were installed to provide extra strength at some cracks and one of the larger cracks I decided to install some dryed branch segments for accent.I sanded and sanded and them used epoxy for fill and finish coat. The (4) legs are Ambrosia maple which I turned from some 4×4 sections to get them to 3.5 for the table.

It's so nice to work on something that fits in the palm of my hand instead of something I need two people to move around to work on it!
I will have to wait till spring to fish with them but It will be fun to see if they catch anything.This bait is very green. It's about 3” long and made of pine.I have a short youtube video of the build here should you care to view it.

DIY Mancala Board Game

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


DIY Mancala Board GameSimilar to my previous project were I used scrap wood to build it, this DIY Mancala Board Game was also built form leftover scrap wood. Mancala game history can be traced back as far as CE 500 and 700. There are hundreds of variants around the world, but we will build only one of many variations of this game. This Mancala game is played by two players, and one game can take about 15 minutes.Rules of Mancala Game: You can use rocks, beans, seeds or anything else. The game is divided into two parts: Your side with six holes and a mancala to the right, and your opponent's side and a mancala.To set up, place four marbles in each hole, except mancalas, a total of 48 marble. The point of this game to get the most marbles in your mancala cup. The first player grabs all marbles in any of their holes and drops, one by one, in succeeding holes in counter-clockwise direction. Including their mancala, but skipping their opponent's mancala cup. Ones your hand is empty, it's your opponent's turn. If the last marble in your hand happens to go into your mancala, you go again. Also, if the last marble in your hand happens to fall into an empty hole that is yours, you grab that marble and all the marbles in a hole across from your opponent's hole. Add them to your mancala cup. This continues until one player has all their holes empty. The player that still has marbles left in their holes adds them to their opponent's mancala cup. The person with the most marbles in their cup wins. Have fun. Find the full plans at
TheDIYPlan.

Shaker Moon Bed

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Shaker Moon BedA few years ago, I spotted this Shaker Moon Bed made by Vermont Wood studios. I knew I wanted to make one some day.
When we moved to Georgia 20 months ago, I had my chance. I started by making a Sketchup model. I used this to my dimensions. I was very concerned about how to build a platform bed that had this simple Shaker look, so I oversized all the parts. The headboard and footboard are 1” thick, the side rails are 1 1/4” thick, and the legs are 2 1/2 square.
I really liked the look in Cherry, but the rest of our bedroom is Mahogany, so I had to go that way. Genuine Mahogany is really expense, and I don't like to work with the so-called African Magogany. I learned that Sweetwater lumber in Austell carries a boatload of of Sapele. While most of their Sapele is quartersawn (ribbon), they carry a fair amount that is flat sawn. Flat sawn Sapele looks pretty dang close to mahogany. I wanted 8/4 for my oversized parts, and all they had in stock of 8/4 flat sawn was in 16' lengths. I took my new cordless circular saw with me and ended up transportable boards. It was expensive, but about 50% of the cost of real mahogany.
In fairly short order I had the head and foot boards planed and glued up. I made the legs out of two pieces, picking out rigt sawn sections of boards. I laid out and then cut several mortises in the legs using a router and a 3/4” bit.
I usually taper legs with the jointer method, but these legs were so heavy and the taper so short that I knew that would not work well at all, so I tapered the legs with my hand plane.
I laid out the curve naturally with a center pivot stop and anchored at both ends. I made a template and cleaned up the jig saw cut wit the rother.
For the tenons on the head and foot boards, I established the shoulders with the router, cut our the sides of the tenons with a hand saw, and then sized the tenons with a shoulder plane, cleaning up with chisels.
When cleaning up the curve on the footboard, something went wrong with the template leading to a 1/8” gouge. A sharp spokeshave to the rescue.
I had chosed to use bed bolts to hold the bed together. I was pretty nervous about drilling these out, but it torned out that my best jig was the leg itself. I drilled the access holes on the side rails oversized, because I knew I would be precise enough for a close fitting hole. I was quite surprised to see how well they turned out:

The biggest engineering question was how to make a platform bed where the slats didn't have center support but wouldn't bend unnecessarily. I bought SYP floor joists, planed them down to 1 1/4”, and then glued/screwed a 1 1/4” square strip in the bottom, forming a T. I dovetailed the ends with corresponding mortises (?) attached to the rails. I cannot believe how strong these are. They're mounted 2” apart to allow the mattress to breath at least a little.
I assembled it in our den and fitted the supports to the slats. I simply could not believe it all worked!
Sapele is an open pore wood, and I didn't want to mess with something like Timbermate all over this thing. I decided to use the finishing method of using Danish Oil where you wet sand it to fill the pores. This is a great finishing method for an ultra smooth finish without a lot of fuss. I didn't want it too red, so I used one coat of red magoany, a 2nd coat of original, and a then a third coat of red again to get it to my ideal color. I have no idea if I could have changed this order up a bit, but when I it worked, I stayed with it.Here's the assembled bed in the bedroom.
I did not want to use brass bed bolts on a Shaker bed. In surfing the web, I read somewhere about someone suggesting using wood covers with rare earth magnets. This is a great solution.
It took about a week short of a year, with other commitments and projects in the midst, but we're pretty happy.

I learned a great lesson though in making sure I have enough of a wall all around the project – even if I am just practicing.

Gun Stock Carving

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Gun Stock CarvingI picked up this cap and ball shooter at a gun store cheap for $50. It's a kit gun and would make a nice toy to try my carving on. I designed all the details myself using reference pics from architectural carving magazines. (I already do architectural carvings so I had the ref mags already.) But I looked at the lines on the gun and tried to fit designs that would highlight the shape of the gun. I was able to fill in surfaces with nice designs but not everywhere.I got to a point where it sat for many months while I had paying jobs to do. Plus it had to sit for a spell while I figured out more details to fill in the blank spots. I picked it back up tonight thinking that if I keep it where I can see it everyday, some new details will come to me. Well at dinner tonight the ideas came and I took it to the shop and finished it off. The carving is done and a stain was applied. I believe the wood is elm and I put on a coat of Minwax English Chestnut. It looks real nice now.The next question is how to finish the finish. I searched on line and all they use is boiled linseed oils and similar. But I can't use that stuff because that oil will get into all those tiny crevices and never dry. I'm also thinking I should antique it some with a quick 'apply and wipe off' application of a dark walnut stain.I think I gotta think some more.

Old World Santa

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Old World SantaHere's an Old World Santa with his “Good List”carved in basswood with acrylic paints for a finish. But the paints were highly diluted so the wood grain would still show through. Too much paint and it will look like something at the Christmas tree shops for $3.99. The wood grain has to show. It's 9 1/2 inches high including the base. The base has lines and nail holes to look like a pine board wood floor. The designs on the robe, hood, and list, were wood burned in before painting.

Step-stool

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Step-stool This step-stool was created over the course of a semester. It's made out of cedar wood meant for decking. The top is 16”x9”x3/4”, sides are 12 1/2” x 4” x 3/4”, and the legs are 7 1/4” x 10” x 3/4”. An important note is the leg are cut at a 10 degree angle using a table saw. The top pattern is a corn-man surrounded by a field of hexagonal corn! This pattern was made possible by using a CNC router and I hand painted each routed indents with acrylic paint. The use of a planer was used on each piece to grind the thickness down to 3/4”. A rounding bit was used for the top and the legs. Mr. Cornman's project was drilled with screws after using pocket hole joints, 2 on each leg and each side. BE CAREFUL SCREWING IN THE SCREWS, IT CAN GO THROUGH THE TOP. The final project was coated with three coats of tung oil. Let dry and enjoy!

Marine Shadow Box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Marine Shadow BoxCome May I''l have a new son in-law Kyle. He served 6 years in the Marines and accumulated a few remembrances. He keeps them on his dresser so I couldn't get them from my daughter without him knowing so she took a couple pictures and got some sizes for me. I made the box big enough (I hope) to hold them so when I give it to him for Christmas he can add them or I can add them for him. My daughter says he's very proud of them so I think he will like it. I added the flag, a small plague and a couple rounds I had. I can't wait to give it to him.
Oak with glass top and maple splines. 9 1/2'' x 11'' x 2 1/2''. Finished with Danish oil. I used 4 earth magnets to keep it shut. I think it was a bit too much but it's not going to open by accident.

Business Card Holders

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Business Card HoldersMade these business card holders for a local business. I used some scrap red-oak trim wood from a remodel of the office space above them – they are a sustainability focused business so it fit well.I cut the bottom pieces concave in the front and convex in the back, partly for a little styling, but also partly because I made a prototype out of pine and it warped on me, making it really unstable. This way, there are always 3 points of contact and it'll always be stable regardless of what the wood does.As far as woodworking projects go, this one was pretty simple. First I ripped the trim boards to width and resawed to thickness, then sanded flat. Then I set up some stops on my crosscut sled and made all the length cuts. I kept the sled out and made the slots with my new flat grind rip blade. Worked great and avoided the bat ears my dado stack leaves. Again, a couple stops on the sled made quick work of the slots. Then cut the contours on the bandsaw and finished at the oscillating edge/spindle sander. Hand-sanded the last grit to break all the edges.I tried the acetone printer toner image transfer to put the company logo on the backs. It worked to varying degrees. Check out my blog post for my best method. I still might try a different method all together next time.Then I setup a small spray booth in my bathroom and finished with a couple coats of spray shellac.This is my first project in a long time. It felt great to get back out in the shop. Any C&C welcome :) Thanks.

Table saw Lathe jig (Better than expected)

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Table saw Lathe jig  (Better than expected)I have had more than one occasion where I needed something like this but with my recent project I had no option to make some round table legs. It took me a week to build and I admit there are a few changes I would make in my design but it worked very well. Keeping the centers lined up and ensuring the anchor holes in. Your work piece are sized for a snug fit.
This doesn't look safe but while using if taking your time the process works quite well.Example video online by Izzy Swan :

More copper etching and patina

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


More copper etching and patinaIt's me again, I made similar crosses a few months ago with wood borders and patinated copper centers.They sold well and I got a few suggestions on other designs people wanted. These crosses are in response to that request.I made nine total, three wood varieties with three center etchings each. They are about 10-3/4” tall by 7-1/4” wide, 1-3/4” wide arms.The patina was all done with ammonia and salt this time. I really like the blue color producedThe center medallions are done with the same FR4 copper plated circuit board material (black fiberglass). The last jar of the mysterious blue goop from China I used as a resist would never dry. This was motivation to switch to the dry resist film and I am now sold on it!I had to purchase a $10 clothes iron from WallyWorld to laminate the film, but it works fine. If you want to get an idea of what the heck I'm talking about, check out my previous blog on the process or do a search for “dry photoresist how-to”You can see more details into the construction from my previous project.The “IHS” scripts were some of what people asked for, I added more Celtic knots just because….The three wood types were:Maple
Cherryand fumed white oak with Russian olive end capsThe olive end caps are simply because I forgot to cut them from WO and get them into the fumes with the other pieces 8^)These were finished with the spray can version of Minwhack satin polyurethane. This stuff is my favorite poly for small projects. The spray nozzle on these cans is absolutely superb! I get a glass smooth finish. It costs about double over buying by the standard brush on can, but for the convenience it can't be matched.Thanks for looking!

Christmas Bookends

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Christmas BookendsMy dad built a set of bookends for my brother and I over 30 years ago that resembled the outside of a house complete with a window, saw, axe, and chopped wood. Unfortunately, over the course of several military moves the set broke and about 10 years ago had to be thrown out. I have wanted to return the honor for my own kids for several years but could never decide what to use as a template. Then, after taking a scroll saw class at my local Woodcraft, I stumbled across Steve Good's Scrollsaw Workshop site and found the patterns I'm using here.Using larger curly red oak scrap pieces for the scroll work and a new red oak board for the bookends themselves, I finished these yesterday (still need to clean up some excess lacquer). I decided to also join the ends using dovetails (only my second time cutting them) instead of using butt joints with screws as his patterns show. There are mistakes in these related primarily to the dovetails but I still think the kids will be happy with them.21 yr old daughter – Motorcycle; she owns a 1981 Suzuki GS550L and rides with me often (the white is actually silver paint – still learning how to compose good pictures)
19 yr old step-son – Dragons (I made his bookends lighter than the others to set the coloring off some)
18 yr old daughter – Fairies
15 yr old step-son – Dog

Triangle Peg Game

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Triangle Peg GameFew months ago we went on a road trip to visit my sister in Lincoln, Nebraska. When we were there, we went to a restaurant called Cracker Barrel; each dining table had a small peg game. While waiting for our food, I noticed that people around us were playing the peg game. Seemed intriguing, so I tried. Long story short we passed the peg game around the table and everyone enjoyed playing it, even my children! So I decided to make this DIY Triangle Peg Game board. I purposely made the pegs much larger than the original game so that it would be easier to find if kids throw them into a toy storage or somewhere else.This DIY brain teaser game is a perfect gift for this upcoming Christmas holiday. Is there a better way to improve your brain health then have fun while playing a game? The rules for triangle peg game are simple; and played by one person. Fill in all the holes with pegs except one that's on top of the triangle. Later you can try different variations, leaving an empty hole in a different place, for a greater challenge. The player is supposed to jump pegs like in checkers, removing each one from the game, until there are no more moves left. The less the pegs left in the end the better. If you have only one peg left, you're a genius!If you end up with:One Peg = You're a Genius
Two Pegs = You're Pretty Smart
Three Pegs = You're Just AverageYou also might be interested in my other game projects that I've built: DIY Pucket Game, DIY Mancala Board Game, and Cornhole Boards with Scoreboard. Also check out other awesome projects at TheDIYPlan.

Cheese Slicers

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Cheese SlicersI had never made any cheese slicers until I saw Dick's (recycle 1943 on LJ's) and he told me where to get the parts. Of course my first ones were small rectangular ones but I wanted a bigger board so the next ones I just made the rectangle longer but still wanted it bigger so I made them wider with a cut out so the handle would still operate. The mahogany and cherry one with the walnut heart inlay is 8”x12” and the walnut and cherry one with the cherry bowtie inlays is 8”x14”. The bowtie inlay template I bought because it was on sale but the heart inlay template I made myself, Saved $14.95 plus tax and shipping HAHA I'm going to make more inlay templates in various shapes soon and I'll post them. I'm stepping up the design game on these Dick so I expect to see different ones from you too HAHA I know you were planning on making some with a wider board.

That old CRAFTSMAN set still comes in handy .The parts are all cut on the miter saw and the roof is just plywood scraps and some resawn yellow cedar and a chimney made from MDF .A fun little project and a good morning in the shop .Well now I wish all of you a MERRY CHRISTMAS and Happy New Year *and good health !Klaus / Kiefer

Nesting Chair

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Nesting ChairJust as I was starting to plan on building some outdoor chairs Jay Bates released his plans for this nesting chair, which was a perfect fit for my needs. After purchasing the chair template, I followed Jays plans for the most part with the main difference being the use of trim head screws, instead of flat head like Jay used. The wood is from old treated pine 1X6 that I had previously used in a privacy fence. The set slates had to be milled to 5/8 thickness to be flat, but the chair legs are thick. The chair is finished with boiled linseed oil.Over all the chair is comfy and light weight, storing away neatly. I would highly recommend his template and plans. Here is a link to his web site if you're interested: Jay Bates Nesting ChairThanks for stopping by,Matthew Stillwell

How To Make A Handsaw Caddy

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


How To Make A Handsaw CaddyIt's been quite a while since I've been able to post anything on here. It's good to be back.This is a shop project that's been a long time coming. I wanted all of my handsaws to be in one place so I made this handsaw caddy. I based the design on some plans I downloaded from somewhere. I'm sure they're easy enough to find online.The material is just some cut-offs that I scrounged from a construction site. I want people to know that they don't have to spend a lot of money on materials and equipment to make things. They can use whatever material they can come up with and just some basic tools.Check out the video of how I made it on my new You Tube channel Just Throwin' It Together This is the channel that I will be using to post my “How to” videos. Be sure to like and subscribe.

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Long Overdue Watch BoxGreetings fellow LJ friends. It's been awhile since I have last posted anything. Back issues/surgeries have kept me out of the shop, however I pushed through ongoing issues and prevailed. I have a buddy that is more of a brother than buddy. He asked me quite awhile ago if I could make hime a watch-box and this is what I built for him for his birthday. I cannot the credit for the box design, I used The Wood Whisperer's knife box as the inspiration, changed the dimensions and added the cubbies. I used Bubinga because of its beautiful color and grains and walnut as accents. Brusso hinges and a mortise and tenon type lock from Woodcraft.Yes, you may notice a missing screw head in the right hinge, I snapped it off (hate tightening brass screws) and need to go get a screw extractor to fix my mistake. I wanted to post this before surgery tomorrow but will get the repair done. Thanks for looking!

Toboggan from years past

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Toboggan from years past24 years ago, on a weekend away from my new career as an air traffic controller, I purchased an inexpensive Craftsman 10 contractors saw. I made a couple of finger boards out of scrap 2×4. I found a local lumberyard and bought some 8/4 ash. Using the saw and finger boards to hold the ash to the fence and table I ripped off 16 7/16 thick 10' strips. Using a belt sander, I rounded the sides of each strip and removed the saw marks.I capped off a 3' section of old 4 PVC and filled it with hot water and fabric softener. Soaking the ash strips for about an hour, I bent them in a jig make of scrap 3/4 ply and 1 dowels tying each tip back to hold the curve while they dried. 12 survived.The next day I stained a few and began assembling the toboggan with scraps of oak as cleats. Countersinking brass screw into the ash from underneath and securing each runner to the oak. Some brass eye screws and chain to hold the curve nose. 3 coats of poly. I sewed the cushion filling it with an old closed cell sleeping pad.Over then next 10 years my kids and I wore out the ol' toboggan sliding many miles in the snow. I think of this as my first real woodworking project but then recall cutting up an old waterbed with a handsaw to make a bookcase. Building a truck bed insert out of plywood and old carpet. Probably others. Somewhere along the way I stumbled into enough skills to make my kids happy with a toboggan. No, I'm not a woodworker, but I can glue together some scrap and occasionally have a good time.

Lamp made from floor drain cover and reclaimed hardwoodWhile Buying materials for my studio at the local hardware store, the cast iron floor drain cover came to my attention. I was attracted to the vertical slots of the drain. I feel that there is something that can be done with them and the wood. Well here it is. I design and build a lamp out of them. The legs are from 10mm round brass, and i used led light. Finished in oil. Hope you like it.

Story Book Box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Story Book BoxI told my wife, Luann, I wanted to make a box that looked like a book. She jumped on that idea and we came up with a story that we wanted. I told Luann I had enough room for seven pairs of pages in the book. She chose what she wanted on each pair and did the artwork. She also wrote out the songs, but just imported the scriptures. She was afraid that she would make too many mistakes and have to start over too often. When some others saw what I was working on they wanted one too. I ended up making thirteen of them. We decided that we would give this book to her dad who is a retired pastor. Only two were gifts, the others were sold. The boxes were fairly simple to make, but the pages took a half hour to laser each one. I think that I had twice the time with the laser than I had in building.Thanks for looking.

Coasters and HoldersThought I would take some of my scrap shop wood and do something with it. I made a form out of some 1/2 plywood where I could make up to eight coasters at a time. I cut some dark walnut and made the holder and put a piece of walnut in each coaster, all different.
I finished the holder with lacquer.

Dust Collection for the Miter Station

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Dust Collection for the Miter StationA few months back, I built a simple modular 2×4 miter saw station. I finally got around to adding much needed dust collection.First, I made a dust hood with sliding adjustable doors which makes it easy to open up for mitered cuts, and second, I added a dust cyclone to my shop vac on an automated switch.I tested the air quality every step of the way to see how effective each of the components was, and what an improvement! Can't believe I waited this long to make this upgrade.You can watch the build video HERE.

Atomic Bombe Jewelry Box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Atomic Bombe Jewelry BoxBox number 21 in my recent box series. This is number 7 in my Adventures into Shape.This box is built from pine and poplar and the splines and beads are mesquite and pine. There are also walnut and cedar in the feet, the lid and the pull.I used machines to mill the wood and to cut the angles and dimensions and used chisels and gouges to carve the basic form. Hand sanded most of the form and tried a die grinder with 3m roloc 1 inch discs. The bands of the poplar on this box run horizontally along the bottom of the triangular form. These were carved away to reveal the exaggerated rounded bottom of the main piece.The jewelry box core has a pull that makes it easy to lift out of the larger box This five tray felt lined box has a brass rod axle which allows each tray to swivel open. There are magnets also embedded in the walls of the trays that keep the different trays aligned.
Dimensions are as follows…
Outside dimensions of the Atomic Bombe are 11 at the widest on each side x 17 1/2 tall.
The inner core ring tray box is 4 on each side x 8 tall and each tray is 1 deep.During the build I wanted the bottom of the box to extend lower than it actually was so I added some more wood and created a secret compartment on the bottom. The box must be emptied and then flipped over to access the compartment. The bottom lid swivels on a brass screw and has two rare earth magnets that help keep it closed in the right position.


Finish is an oil based fruitwood stain and a wipe on mixture of oil based poly and mineral spirits. Followed with Johnson's Paste Wax. I skipped using shellac on this one and the overall finish is a little clearer and more of a satin sheen.I felt like this box was very similar to the last one Rocket Bombe Ring Box but I wanted to post a couple of pics of both for comparison.
The inner tray box on this one is much larger and the actual curvature of the outer box is much more extreme. I seem to do a couple of versions of each of the last few boxes with some changes. They are definitely related and they also have some major differences.Any thoughts on the actual finish without the shellac? The matte finish is a little more natural but I am not sure what to think.Thanks for looking.
As always, comments and suggestions are welcome.
Jon

Breakfast TableThis small sturdy Breakfast Table is a great option for a dining/breakfast area. A place where you can create memories with your family, while enjoying a nice meal. I built this table using just 2×6s and 4×4s costing me about $70 of material. Farmhouse furniture is so in style right now, and you can build your own for a great price. Also, another plus to DIY is you can stain or paint it whatever color you like. Enjoy building. Find the free plans at TheDIYPlan.

Solo Cup Holder

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Solo Cup HolderSo my wife was having a party on one of my shop days this week. She's always looking to have everything perfect. I noticed that she had many decor items (strategically placed things I've made for her) but the drink station looked rather blah. I had an ash cutoff and an idea…Hence, my version of the ever-handy solo cup holder. Solid ash, some oil to make it pop and no reason to ever swap backwash with fellow party guests ever again. So for those out there who are always losing the marker, you're welcome.Follow us on social media at @docsdesignsfurniture on Facebook and Instagram!Www.docsdesignsfurniture.com

Christmas Crafts

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Christmas Crafts I've been making all sorts of projects out of wood for 12 years and never made a dime, except for the time we made a Bear for our local funeral home. I figured I'd be resting on it one day so why not.
My wife and son have recently have gotten into laser engraving and cutting on an Epalog Laser owned by our public library. They made Christmas Ornaments along with college boxes cut out of 1/4” Birch Plywood to sell tomorrow at a church craft fair. The booth space is inexpensive and they drawn fairly large crowds. Along with my wife sisters they plan to become overnight millionaires. They asked if I wanted to make something so I could get rich too. I spent many hours making two items but decided to stay poor and donated them to their cause. At my age I'd be to old to enjoy all that money anyway.
I made the snow men out of scraps and turned them on my lathe. I'm not to good at making the hats look right on their heads so I cut them off with my bandsaw, sanded the top of the head flat and reattached the hat with a dowel. Painted, Polyed, drilled, and covered all my mistakes with glitter. It took forever it seemed till finally they were
done.
I turned the wand out of Cherry and sanded it to 3000 grit on the lathe, smooth as glass. Then used renaissance wax to protect and polish the wand. I used a wood-burner on the end to apply the initials HP. The base was made of scrap left over from a chess board I'm making.
I know this all sounds crazy but I have friends who pay for their tools and shop expenses doing Christmas Crafts Fairs starting around Thanksgiving up to the weekend before Christmas. They make a sizable amount of money. Hopefully my wife will become rich tomorrow and I can retire. Oh, I forget I'm already retired and love to play in my shop.
Thanks for Looking and Merry Christmas.

Entry Bench with Shoe Storage

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Entry Bench with Shoe StorageWe have been needing better shoe storage for our front hall for years (shoes are just stacked in bookcases now) and I finally decided to do something about it. After getting inspiration from projects on here and elsewhere I decided on a basic plan for a bench with 2 shelves for storage (1 adjustable) and went to planning the design. Little did I know at the time how long it would take me to tweak the design to something that I would want to build but at the same time be achievable with my limited woodworking skills (I started on my new hobby about 1 year ago). For example I had never done mortise and tenon before and cutting the mortises was more than I could handle no matter what technique I tried, so I hit on the idea of cutting a continuous groove in the legs and making the mortises by filling in the grooves with wood strips (walnut in this case) and leaving spaces where I wanted to mortises to be.The frame and shelves are made from red oak and the top from Peruvian walnut. I finished the frame using Watco Danish oil followed by 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal, and finished the walnut top using 6 coats of Arm-R-Seal.I think for a first furniture project it turned out rather well, and my wife loves it. I have thought about making a matching table for the other side of the entry hall (taller and shallower with more shelves) as a complementary piece and additional storage (we have WAY too many shoes!).Thanks so much to everybody on this forum that has helped by giving me tips and inspiration on this and other projects. I only hope that as I gain knowledge and skills that I can share the same with others like so many here have done for me.

Craftsman style clock

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Craftsman style clockI made this clock out of quarter sawn white oak. My daughter and I took a day trip to Motawi Tile in Ann Arbor to buy the tile. We also got to take a tour of the factory. The finish was achieved by fumigating with household ammonia for 2 days followed with Danish Oil and then a couple of coats of wipe on polyurethane. I tried the danish oil without fumigating and just didn't like the result as much.

Growth Ruler

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Growth RulerHi:This last week, at my dear wife's suggestion, I built a “Growth Ruler” as a Christmas gift for my eldest son's family. Keeping in mind that my son is 6' 3” and that kids these days are often taller than their parent, I scaled the ruler from 2 feet to 7 feet.The ruler is constructed like a row of puzzle pieces (see pattern) connected together with dowels. I used Baltic Birch plywood, which is really nice to work with, and oak dowels.After tracing the pattern onto the plywood, each of the puzzle pieces was first pre-drilled where the dowels would be located. Then I took the wood to the bandsaw and to cut the straight lines. A 1/4” bandsaw blade moved freely in the drill holes, and allowed me to turn the wood as needed.Each puzzle piece is 6” square on the edges, not including the tang. The triangular cutout on the right side are 1” apart. The notches on the left side are 6” apart.I built a measuring slide that glides up and down the ruler to aid in measuring height. The slide can be fixed in position with a wing-nut and screw.The finish is clear coat with a topcoat of paste was. The numbers and dots were cut out of sign makers vinyl. I generated the text for these letters on my computer.All in all, this was a very enjoyable pre-Christmas project.Bill

Cake Knives

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Cake KnivesWalnut and Maple cake knives I made for Christmas gifts. My wife asked me if I thought I could make them for a couple of friends, so my response was “challenge accepted!” I had never tried something like this before and I actually used an existing kitchen knife for a template. These are pretty easy to make, and an excellent use of small scraps if you're a wood hoarder like me.
A band sander and/or a spindle sander will make these almost effortless if you are so inclined. I made the walnut dowels for the handles using a piece of metal with a hole drilled in it and then running a square piece of stock through it. I saw the idea online somewhere and was a bit skeptical as to if this would work, but it does indeed!
finished with mineral oil and beeswax.

my First ( and only ) box made to date

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


my First ( and only ) box made to dateHi all, As the title says, this is ( so far) the only box I have made. I actually made this a couple years ago. I hope that's ok for posting. I love making smaller projects, but my honey do list is mostly for larger projects ( book cases, bedroom furniture, things like that ) so I was thrilled when the Mrs. asked for a keepsake box. I looked at tons of pictures and kind of picked out the details I liked. The wood was black walnut, a couple of boards I picked up locally and for the top insert a cutoff of a piece of air dried black walnut I had bought years ago for another project. So, to the build. There are four main components, the lid, main body, feet and tray. The lid is mortise and floating tenon with a groove cut around and the insert floating.
The main body is mitered with square ” maple keys” for alignment and as a detail. Unlike most I do most of my miter work on the chop saw.

I finished the inside prier to assembly.
The feet ( bottom) are mitered together with hidden splines then routered to leave the ” feet” proud of the rest of the bottom.
The tray is maple and black walnut
The hinges were brusso. All told I loved making it and my wife was ecstatic. My only disappointment was the walnut board I picked up did not have the ” snap” of the air dried insert. I have since heard the colors of air dried walnut are much more vivid.
Thanks for looking

You Name It

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


You Name ItThis is a ??? kitchen thing.About 14 inches long, 3-1/4 wide and varies on thickness of flat part from relatively sharp on the front and right side to 3/8 thick on the left side.Made from pallet oak. Used a lot of different tools, even the scrollsaw and a lot of sanding,- even using a flap-wheel on the drillpress for some of it. The sharpening was all done with sanders. 2 hand sanders and 2 different belt sanders were used. The oscillating 4” grizzly carried the heavy load, with the 6” Jet doing the sharpening part.As I do not have a band saw the angle cuts were done with hand saws. the handle part was curt on the scrollsaw.Finish is many (probably 15+ ) coats of walnut oil-food grade.Design was a T & E special again.

Hickory and Walnut End Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Hickory and Walnut End TableI finally finished the end table that I've been picking away at. It matches my other living room furniture. I tried a couple new things with it – 1) inlays, 2) Epoxy filling. Both worked out pretty well.One lesson I learned is that if you use slow-setting epoxy and have something suspended in it, the stuff settles to the bottom before the epoxy sets up. I ended up chiseling out some of the epoxy and refilling it. Ya live and learn. I had better luck with doing the epoxy in two “lifts”. The color comes from some turquoise colored sand I got at a hobby shop.All the joints are mortise and tenon. (Drawer has lap joints I guess)Finish is Danish oil, followed by 3 to 4 coats of Arm R Seal poly.It stands about 25” tall. Will reside by our couch.I'm really liking the chunk of hickory that's got all the mineral streaking in it. Can't beat the contrasting colors of hickory.Some additional build photos below:Some Parts cut out.
One of the side gluing up.
Dry fitting some joints.
Lots of mortises cut out.
I tried out my new tenoning jig. It worked well, except that I had a triple chip grind blade, and it left a little funky cut on the shoulders. I've since procured a square tooth blade that will fix that problem.
Final fit up and gluing.

Business card holder-When lumberjocks work together

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Business card holder-When lumberjocks work togetherWhen lumberjocks work together, anything is possible! Awhile back, my Son printed some cards for me to set out during my craft shows. Now I knew I needed something to put them in. I wanted something original and shows my wood work. I thought of what has become my signature item for these sales, my post office door banks. I've made and sold over 60 of these over the last couple years. I had no idea how to make one small enough for cards but I thought maybe some of my friends might have an idea. So during the last swap I posted if any of the CNC users could do one the size of a card. I posted an example.The response was overwhelming. The conversation quickly turned to how to make one and I had offers to help me get one done. John McClure was the the first to offer to make one. I think it became a challenge for him. Before he could get started, Mikeacg had already figured out the vectors and sent them to him.John said with these he had all he needed to get started, except what size I wanted it. Gosh, I didn't know what size or how the project should be made. I sized it up as if it would be a drawer, with the cards inside. John posted this graphic to see what I thought. With that and a quick phone, he was off and running posting progress pics along the way.Getting ready to cut,we chose maple as the material with intention to paint it gold.When he finished, he posted the final results.I was amazed when I got them in the mail. It was also decided that the door needed a knob inside the letters. This was when HokieKen joined the build party. I sent him the size, very small and he had brass knobs on the way in no time. So small I have no idea how he was able to turn them.Now it was my turn. I chose walnut for the wood for the body and decided to make a holder in the top instead of a drawer. I cut rabbets in the front to recess the door into and also for the back. On the top I made a holder from maple to match the door and cut out for it to fit into. A bit tough with coping saw and chisel but I got a good fit. I cut a block for the inside that fills the box, adds weight and keeps the holder, the front and back in place and all is glued together. I added some trim around the maple to give a step raised look and to fill the window, I used antique copper mirror. For a finish I used danish oil. I chose not to paint, the natural wood look just seemed so much better to me.I have been more excited about this project then I have in a long time. I want to thank everyone that helped. This would not have happened without each of you.Mikeacg-for the vectors and renderingsJohn McClure-for making that beautiful doorHokieKen-for the knobsMike (my Son)-for the walnut pallet he found for the wood and the photography
