Birthday Jointer's Mallet for Son-In-LawDuring our last visit to our daughter and son-in-law, he had recently completed a very nice side table for their living room. During our discussion of the table it was revealed that he had hand cut the mortises with a fine set of wood chisels, however it was also noted that he was using a rubber mallet with his chisels.Upon our return home I set about to make him a wooden Jointer's Mallet to complement his wood working. The mallet was completed in time to mail to him as a birthday present. The Mallet head is White Oak sandwiched between Cherry. The handle is hard maple. Finish is Danish oil. Thanks for looking.

Bathroom Vanity

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Bathroom VanityOur daughter has 3 daughters of her own including a teenager and a pre-teen. Her bathroom vanity was at least 20 years old and in rough shape. I made the casework and door panels from maple plywood, the face frame, rails, and stiles from soft maple. Finished with 3 coats of latex enamel. I wish I had a before and after pic. This was a fun build. Sorry for the picture quality – I'm not much of a photographer.

Tea Lights and Pencil Holders

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Tea Lights and Pencil HoldersThese were actually gifts for Christmas 2018 – (I am a little behind in my postings). We made eight sets of the Tea Light Holders. Each set contained a pair of the pictured holder each with three votives and candles. We also made two pencil holders. Nothing complicated, no fine joinery, but the gifts were well received. We have since visited homes of several recipients and saw the articles on display. The Tea Light holders are Cherry. The Pencil holders are Cherry and a slice of Maple. Finish is equal parts BLO, satin poly, and mineral spirits. Thanks for looking.
