My free little library

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


My free little libraryI recently built this free little library. I am waiting to mount it and fill it until the COVID issue is better controlled. I'm looking forward to neighborhood kids getting books, but I don't want to cause further spreading of the virus. It's mostly made of cedar from an old broken cedar chest that my husband was going to throw out.

Maple Live Edge Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Maple Live Edge TableMy son and his girlfriend purchased their first home. I built this maple table for their dining area. The table is 36” wide and 72” long. The top is made from two live edge maple slabs (originally about 2 1/4 inches thick) Unfortunately each slab had quite a twist.To maximize the final thickness after flattening I had to cut them down and re-glue them. The top ended up at about 1 3/4” thick. The legs can be removed from the tabletop to facilitate transportation. The legs are attached to the tabletop using 1/4 20 threaded inserts and bolts. The holes in the top rail have been elongated to allow for movement of the tabletop. Each leg section is joined with a through mortise with a wedged tenon. I added the diagonal brace t p the bottom stretcher to prevent racking. It is also attached with threaded inserts and bolts. The table is finished with OSMO oil wax finish.

She Shed

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


She ShedTook a break from tea boxes and little cabinets and went on kind of an adventure, especially when factoring in heat and environment. I had to build something that justified use of my Milwaukee M18 driver, which is ridiculously over-powered and had been unusable for anything up until this. Five pounds of deck screws later, it was definitely the right tool for sticking 2×4s together. The other awesome tool was my ryobi 7” one+ miter saw. Doesn't take much for cutting 2×4s and it's so easy to flip around from spot to spot.I'd never built a structure, and if there is one thing I learned, it's to get straight 2×4s. I ordered a “big box” store to deliver, and I worried about this, and my worries were confirmed in spades when they delivered a load of warped wood. About half were okay enough, but I had to take many back and exchange, and “okay” still meant lots of time added dealing with stuff not quite right. Fortunately I learned the lesson early on, and so hand-picked extra-straight ones for the roof.It really dragged out custom making every window and shutter (and there are 2 sky windows) and the door, and it all has to fit right. All that stuff is pretty rough by woodworking standards but for a shed I'm happy with it. Now I know why there are building codes.Overall I have to say it was a lot of fun working with tools outside instead of in the shop.

Automata on Display.

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Automata on Display.Boys and Girls,I have no Idea what spurred me on to taking up this project's concept, as regrettably, I have never really made toys for children or had the opportunity to do so, as most of the toys I get involved with are more so considered big boy's toys... and I'm not referring to tools, but rather T & J (and like) models.This project emanated from an ”out of left field” reply I made to a project in the past, promising to post my limited experience (and lack of knowledge) about automata. I should stop here, but as the missus refers to me as a pig headed duck, I will press on (she keeps insisting I should have ducked when they handed out the heads)
I apologise, not for the head, but forgetting the member's name that the promise was made to.Just to set the mood Quite a few years ago, during an inane debate with a woodworking mate, for some uncanny reason he drew my attention to an article in a magazine regarding toy automation. If I remember his sales pitch, it was centred around this picture

which he reputed to be the ”answer” to all toy automation movements.
I am no authority on automata and don't want to get involved in theologian debates about mythical robotics… any form of contradictory opinions can be channeled towards that said friend who now refuses to be identified, and even if he was, he's training to be a Victorian politician (Australia) and is practicing the current political privilege of forgetfulness.Without upsetting the racobite viewers, I fired up SketchUp and started designing after my traditional preliminary ritual of a glass of ”...iarch…” ( insert appropriate racobite chagrin here) vinoInitially my intentions was to create a board that would activate all the automata actions as one with the use of an ingenious combination of gears driven by a single handle,
Unfortunately the ingenious quickly morphed into a genuine ass as I not so quickly realised that I'd need a bucket load of bearings, friction pads and other expensive hardware to permit such engineered motion with just one single knob.
Nevertheless, my friend was very impressed when presented with the SketchUp model and asked if I could laser cut the parts for him I was unimpressed by his impression, but for the sake of friendship I obliged then when he asked if I could assemble it I was further unimpressed and related my feelings accordingly.
I believe it was at this point that the venture stagnated.It wasn't till a few years later (circa 2020… C19 self-isolation… now-ish) that my buddy must have swatted up on Shakespeare and in a perfect Julius II impersonation, uttered the famous words of Duckangello, when will you make it end?.
The timing was coincidental as while disinfecting what pottzy calls my NASA laboratory, I came across a baggie of sized automata scraps (cut but un-assembled) and when I realised it wasn't a stash I got a fit of conscience not for my buddy, but to that LJ member I mentioned above and for some stupid reason at that time, promised I would make up the automata model and post it here at LJ (not in the mail) Well I can't remember who that member was, but I do remember my promise.Running out of excuses (not a cask of ”...iarch…” vino), a revisit with SketchUp (without further reading), and resulted in,
Apparently each assembly is responsible for a unique action, depending on where and how one secures an attachment to it with the intention that the appropriate movement is achieved by the rotation of a driving wheel, as in a cart, rolling toy or a handle.
I really haven't the foggiest of which does what, however, I planned to make a video highlighting the individual actions, that if you use your imagination, might find an animation for the action. I do recall my friend pointing to one of the mechanisms in the original picture stating that is what one would use to make a wood-chopping action toy but damned if I remember exactly which one he pointed at. Just remember that these are small models with no attachments. Even I can foresee a large model with appropriate attachments that could generate spectacular results.
Confused?... wait for the video… if it ever gets created… actors are hard to find with C19 restrictions… even I'm self isolating so currently unavailable.Processed the “cut” layouts

through the laser, (yaaay... finally… actual workshop and/or “wood” pictures)

and created a new baggie of goodies and snail mailed it to my buddy,

as I had little bit of trouble using email.Eager to beat my friend to the first working model, I tried a prototype with just two of the movements,

and got totally concerned about the difficulty of activating the new simplified geared movement,

only to realise rubber mats are not a great friction pad for MDF.Being winter, production stagnated again, but this time due to lack of springs (the above two movements didn't require springs)...
Fortunately during a pilgrimage to my local bottle shop, I ventured into the adjoining Mitre 10 hardware store and found these budget packets of miscellaneous springs,

With a new spring in my steps (and hands), it was back to the workshop. The base was built and the movements constructed,

The base was buffed to provide a slicker turning surface,

(shiny)It was at this stage that I realised that the original dowel handle

was a bit cranky, and designed a hollow dowel handle with a tenon

to compensate for the 3mm spacers.
While this was workable, I soon decided that a moving picture would better demonstrate the functionality of each movement and in anticipation of a future video, with some trial and error, I redesigned the handle,

and was happy with the result,
Now I'm no expert in automata and certainly don't plan to be, however, since I took the trouble of making up this display board I should at least demonstrate its functionality. While there may be other movements, and I think some on the board are far too similar, I have been assured that these are a good sample.
So again I ask, don't shoot the messenger, even in duck season. Following this, eventually there will be a link to a video I'm planning to make, however, as I haven't made it yet, I can't discuss it any further.Talking about videos… like in a movie… big print…..... 2 DAYS LATER .....The video was made and published. There is also a link to the SketchUp animation.For any budding toy makers who might be tempted to experiment., here is a link to the SketchUp, original and layout PDF's. When it comes to the layout, exact dimensions are not critical, unless you want to print and make the meshing gears

Table for my sister

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Table for my sisterAll wood from branches we've had to trim or trees we've had to take down at work. This is the second time I've tried sliding dovetails to put legs on like this. I've gotten better but definitely room for improvement. The pedestal is a piece of apple that was a bit wormy and split a lot while drying so I filled in the splits and worm tracks with blue wood filler. The sided of the top are sycamore with just a bit of spalting, the middle is ash wihch being nice and white worked well to take the blue stain without making it look green. The blue leg is also ash, and the other two legs are jut oak, probably pin oak, just because I already had some little pieces milled up.

Roughsawn Shaker Pine Wall CabinetBought some very pretty, circular cut roughsawn Pine and hated to plane off the velvety detailed surface. So, I used a Shaker cabinet design too create a very rustic piece that accepts the lack of cabinetry skills I have. Hand planed the bevel on the milled inset panel to add some contrast. The interior is also all planed for a finished look. Need to make more of this one..

Frame to match

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Frame to matchFinished up a little poplar frame for the hallway bathroom that was remodeled this summer. Used the same edge profile as I did on the mirror frame and then the same paint as well. Did a primer coat and then did some “artistic” brushstrokes with the black on top of the grey primer. Husband liked it so left it with that one coat.
(Picture may be changed…view of an Oregon coast sunset from the view of my dog, as noted by the ears and top of her head :))

Making an adaptor to change a felt bag dust collector to use a cartridge

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Making an adaptor to change a felt bag dust collector to use a cartridgeAs a result of envying Keith Brown's new dust collector https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nC7_fgojpy4&t=0s because it has a cartridge – which besides collecting even smaller dust particles also has internal paddles for shaking off the accumulated dust (I have to whack my felt bag with a stick whilst wearing breathing apparatus) – I searched once more for a cartridge to fit my Scheppach HD12, but again could not find one that was the right size. I wondered if it would be feasible to make an adaptor ring for a larger cartridge, but it seemed that it might be an expensive experiment if it did not work. However, during my cartridge searches I stumbled across and article by Stephen Finch – http://www.stephenfinch.co.uk/workshop-blog/2020/6/27/upgrading-an-axminster-ade1200-with-a-cartridge-filter – which covered exactly what I envisaged, for a DC which has an even smaller bag. I sent my thanks to Stephen, and ordered the Charnwood CF159 cartridge.As usual, I forgot to take photo's during construction, but there are plenty in Stephen's article. I glued up a sandwich of some odd 19mm MDF and plywood boards, with a thinner sheet of plywood in the middle to thicken up the result slightly, and laid out the circles for my machine (300 mm) and the internal diameter of the cartridge (370mm). I thought of using a router jig set up, but ended up machining carefully on my bandsaw – cutting through at an angle to get to the inner diameter as with bandsaw boxes. Just as well I took that route as I had to enlarge the 300mm hole to get the ring to fit, so there would have been no centre location hole available for a recut with a router jig. The picture shown above displays the left-over pieces – the ring itself being hidden inside the finished machine because I didn't want to disassemble it for photo's.It was necessary to cut notches in the ring to accommodate the ends of the cross plate in which the paddle axle rotates, and I found that an oscillating multi tool provided the simplest and most effective solution to this sort of cutting. I also sprayed the ring all over with sanding sealer just in case this would help.When I first tested the fitted cartridge, as expected a little air and dust blew out at the bottom of the assembly, because my amended inner 300mm hole did not fit tightly to the lip where the felt bag was previously attached. This was easily corrected by the application of some mastic sealant to fill the gaps, which, even before it was allowed to harden, remained stable throughout testing. The external circle had not needed adjustment and fitted in the rubber outer sleeve well, so was completely sealed by the supplied spring-loaded retaining band.Although I am delighted with the result, I do not apologise for plagarising Stephen's article as I think it deserves the wider audience that Lumberjocks might bring as there may be others who would like to do make a similar adaptor to improve their own dust collector.

another batch of A&C styled lamps

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


another batch of A&C styled lampsGreetings!This is what I've been spending weekends over the summer working on.They are very similar to the previous lamps I built with a few exceptions so I won't deep dive into the details as much (see the previous project post for more gritty detail)I've changed a few of my jig designs and added several more, but this will be the last of this inlay design I make for a while as I dream up new and more painful challenges 8^)Glam photos follow below.I made four this time since they are good sellers and with the sometimes complex tool and jig setups, it just made sense to batch them out.
I certainly saved some time, but OMG, cutting all these parts was mentally draining!Here are some numbers:Total wood parts per lamp
shade: 32
stem: 21
base: 21
total: 74That's almost 300 parts to cut, shape, glue, sand, route etc. Ugh!
I keep fairly careful records and the material costs for everything runs about $120 per lamp
The mica, lamp cluster, and fabric wrapped “vintage” power cord make up nearly 1/2 of this.Anyhoo, enough complaining.
The two inlay wood types are birdseye maple and Bolivian rosewood. Lamp body is walnut, mostly rift sawn.
Poplar makes the stem core and a plug for the base just to save some coin on expensive walnut.A difference this time is I saved many hours by not applying a top coat finish, everything was oiled and waxed. This has convinced me to give some of those “hardwax oils” a try in the future. This was just plain Watco and Minwhacks “special” dark. I went through some pains to avoid getting any oil on the inlays since the oil would really darken and obscure the woods, especially the rosewood.I used splines to reinforce the base sections, probably overkill but since I want these to last a long time and the base is all mitered sections, splines it would be.They are made from the same wood as the inlays, serendipity!The above photo really shows how the light angle changes the woods appearance, it was all cut from the same board.The shade hold down is super solid and the top finial nut was actually easy to make. A tip o' the hat to Dave Polaschek. and Pete (PPK) for suggesting the finial style last time 8^)I've experimented with different stay designs on each iteration, knowing full well that the style I used here is really what I should have used all along:Even though they are effectively hidden under the shade, these “class up” the exposed edges better than a bead of silicone or hot melt. They are made from 1/4” walnut with a chamfer along the face so the brads used to retain them penetrate the frame at a useful angle.I drilled 176 total pilot holes through all 64 stays (three brads per stay, two on the top) using the drill press and a very tiny bit. The 5/8” brads were pressed into the pilot holes and with some grunt work, pushed into place with a small nail set (no hammering required).Thanks for looking and any comments!

Walnut Cantilever DeskBuilt this desktop in 2012 from some sweet Walnut slabs I found on a vegetable farm where the family also serve as sawyers. Had the pieces joined and planed at a local mill works and brought out the remarkable wood color with no stain and Waterlox as the finish. It is mounted to the wall with two 1,000-lb. rated brackets for a clear opening under the full 8-ft length.

Beer Caddy - 2020 Beer Swap

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Beer Caddy - 2020 Beer SwapFor the 2020 LJ Beer Swab, I was given Keeble1's name. I looked around for some inspiration without success until my wife asked if I was planning on saving some scrap 2×4's I was pulling out from a small remodel. She said they just looked nicer than usual and assumed that was why I was pulling all the nails. In fact, there just wasn't enough room in the trash so they needed to be stacked a little nicer until the kids could haul them out. She was right, they were unusually straight grained. I ended saving 3 full-length cedar 2×4, and several shorts. After cleaving off the split bits, I used a couple of the shorts to make some thin strips to make the most of the grain.
Next, I tried soaking them for a few hours. The strips showed a lot of splotchy staining, almost like an iron acetate ebonizing solution and they didn't really get more flexible, same issue with splitting. I did let the panel dry and then sanded the splotches off, but it wasn't great looking. I then applied a sanding coat of shellac and realized I would need to disassemble to properly sand it. I also tried ebonizing a whole set of strips, but I didn't really like it.I started playing around with the strips and got to making a woven pattern. Once I had that idea, I figured I wouldn't be making a tankard out of it, so I settled on a tote.The weaving was about as simple as you can imagine. The strips were around 1/16in thick and 5/8in wide. I had enough for a few practice attempts and I first tried a dry assembly from the middle out, just to see if they were flexible enough. It worked, but I split a few ends if I wasn't careful to hold the entire width of the strip. I thought about a dab of glue at each cross, but never did since the panel was fairly rigid and I planned to put a frame around it anyway. I'm guessing it would have been a messI ended up making another batch of longer strips and pre-sanded and pre-finished those, just regular shellac. Some of the strips are not quite as pretty as the originals, so that is something to think about next time as well. Assembly was dry and I started from one corner so that I was only manipulating the edge with long tails which helped with the cracking. After the panel was assembled, I cut the strips to length with a sharp chisel. Spacing was done by eye.I cut a thin dado, 1/8in, in the surrounding frame and inserted the edges. The fit was snug since it was two layers of the weaving, but not tight. I did add a little wood glue to the dado to add rigidity to the panel. I don't think expansion will be an issue at that small scale.The sides and rails of the caddy are walnut milled to about 3/8in thick. I wanted to keep it as light as possible. The bottom is a panel I glued up from the remaining cedar strips that were getting too small to run through the table saw safely and a little walnut to accentuate the straight grain of the cedar.There is also a cedar accent strip set in the top of the walnut handle. Once that had dried, the handle blank was cove milled on the table saw, then the finger holes were drilled and the ends were shaped with the drill press, pull saw, and lots of sanding.


The overall design reminded me of one of those beer adds from the late 60's early 70's. Once assembled, everything got a coat of Howard's Feed'n'wax and buffed.As an extra gift, I took a cutoff of the bottom panel and epoxy'd it to a bottle opener blank to make a matching bottle opener. Thanks to Keebler for sending me the finished pics, since I managed to box it up before remembering to get some for this post. I had a great time with the group and I hope more of you can join us in the next one.

Some EcoPoxy Fun

Some EcoPoxy FunJust been having some fun with Epoxy for a while. The Walnut table was massive and wound up weighing in over 550#s when all said & done. But clients loved it and wound up with the biggest tip ever received on a piece of furniture!The hollow crosscut Teak flower pot for the wife was an experiment on getting the epoxy used as support for the dirt.
(and yes, drain holes were added after cured)The top for 10th Mountain was all epoxy: Just carved out each section and mixed colors accordingly.The vanity top was a gamble going with SnowWhite, but think it paid off well and the Client fell in love with it as they had no idea what they were getting until it was installed ;-)The new Stoll, well that's what I came up with when I truly screwed up the mix calc for the vanity top….I hate throwing stuff away so scrambled to figure out what to do with left over…One expensive ass stoll for my shop now & a work in process ;-)

Serving TableFirst of all, I couldn't get the pictures turned.
If you look back in my projects, you will see the two vanities that I built for our new Cowboy Church.
We have a 10' opening between the sanctuary and the kitchen. I needed a big enough countertop to cover the 24 base cabinets and around 12 over into sanctuary.
It's been fun, I love working with Epoxy.
Enjoy

Cat Cremains UrnAn aromatic cremation urn for a cat. This is a replica of an urn that is no longer manufactured. My customer has several and needed another one. It's made of aromatic cedar, about 5/16” thick. Size is 5” Long X 3-1/2” Wide X 4” Tall. The hinges are 5mm barrel hinges. The original had a latch (not pictured). I thought it odd that an urn would be hinged and latched. Previous urns that I've made had removable bottoms.

End grain Chess Board I have been wondering for sometime on what style of chess board I would like to make. I stumbled on Mike M
( Would u make it ) videos and I thought I Would make it – with some features I would like just a few adjustments. Mine is close to 2 squares and I decided to trim the edge of the frame with my router – this would have been easier on my nerves before assembly.Walnut and maple were used with some Padauk in the frame for accent.
Finish is lacquerI was lucky to find some nice wood filled chess pieces which blend in with the board.

Shou Sugi Ban Desk With Through Mortise and Tenon and Tusk Wedges

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Shou Sugi Ban Desk With Through Mortise and Tenon and Tusk WedgesI had a chance to make something new to me. I love getting to try new techniques and processes and this was a build filled with them. I got to try through mortise and tenon with tusk wedges. This to me was a big step as it was the first build I have done with no glue or metal fasteners in the base. I also got to do a large size Shou Sugi Ban finish. I have done a ton of smaller burns like this but none this size. So I learned a lot about this process. I love how the finish came out. What do you guys think? I did do a video and article on how I made the desk go check it out and let me know what all i did wrong lol.Thank you guys.https://jpaynewoodworking.com/try-something-new-how-to-make-a-beautiful-shou-sugi-ban-burned-wood-desk/

Arizona makes me thirsty...

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Arizona makes me thirsty...I had the pleasure of drawing Dave Kelley for the 2020 Beer Swap and just thinking about the heat in Arizona makes me thirsty… Perfect solution for thirst? Beer! Lots and lots of cold beer! I envisioned a dried up well with the sun-bleached skull laying in the sand… OK, I'll admit it! I was thirsty and did a lot of pre-project beer tasting until I found something that I thought would make anyone happy!!! I designed what I thought fit my vision and carved the backdrop on my Stinger using some clear pine but then had to go in and try to age it a bit by adding a rough texture with the tip of a nail. (I usually inlay some aluminum hangers on the back but wasn't sure where Dave would put this thing and just how rustic he would be will to go so I left them off so he could make his own decision. Personally, I would hang it with exterior deck screws and hide them with rusty nail heads. (Let them lay outside in the rain and then cut the heads off and attach to hide the screws)).
The dried up well is part of a wishing well I used before, cut in the round on my recoil lathe (AKA The Sidewinder) out of a piece of core from a veneer mill (This is something they typically throw away when the diameter gets too small but is generally some kind of good quality hardwood).

I carved the little skull with my trusty #11 Exacto knife and glued it in place (though the USPS did some damage to the product and required a bit of loving care from Dave to make it right again).So the procedure here would be:I'm thirsty!
Pop a bottle open (cap falls in dry well)
Drink said bottle
Sigh deeply and Smile!Live is Good!Repeat as necessary…

Puzzle Box and Beer Chastity Belts for Bill Berklich

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Puzzle Box and Beer Chastity Belts for Bill BerklichWell, another swap down. A good one with many good projects out of this one for a beer swap especially.I was given the task to make something for Bill Berklich. A good dude. I don't know him well but I know he does work with the scouts. I respect that, it helps make independent youths to grow into real productive members of society. Can't stress enough the importance of this today. So right there, that's good in my book.I decided to make it fun. I've had fun games, pranks, jokes, etc. in a couple of my past swaps and I seem to get a kick out of it, that's all that matters right?I grabbed some plans awhile back for free for a puzzle box from woodsmith. Hadn't built it yet but thought it was a pretty cool concept. Modeled after Japanese puzzle boxes from long ago and some of those required over 100 moves to open it. This particular one only requires five moves. So it's fairly basic.I also printed up some can locks on the 3D printer. These things are surprisingly strong. I was shocked at the grip of these. I felt like I would be breaking the can or something when trying to pull them off without unlocking the lock. I then bought some cheap brass locks to secure the toppers on.Overall it was a fun build. The box was surprisingly complicated to make. I've made some fun fancy boxes in the past but this one was probably the toughest I've made in at least a couple years.Bill appeared to enjoy the game to get to his keys, that made me pleased. I also included some pen blanks I've poured. He should be able to make some cool stuff with those.How you all enjoy!Thanks

5 carved Australian birds

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


5 carved Australian birds These are the 5 birds that I have carved recently.
They ate all hand carved and painted to replicate the real life so a lot of the time the paint is mixed to get the right colouring.
Once I get the right template that carving is just a matter if looking carefully at the individual bird and carving the blank to resemble the bird.Each time I carve a bird I seem to find more details.
They have been painted with Jo Sonjas paint and a white wax to finish and protect.Five Aussie birds

Drop-front Cherry Secretary

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Drop-front Cherry SecretaryDrop front secretary made of cherry. We are waiting for the wood to darken and even out, hopefully. It is 44 tall, and 34 wide, and 16 deep when closed. Finished with Watco 'natural' Danish Oil.The mechanism to support the desk when opened is automated. The support bars are linked to the desk surface and come out when you open it. See post:
https://www.lumberjocks.com/topics/310740I wanted the mechanism to be stainless, but didn't want shiny, so I ended up using the Caswell stainless steel blackener. It worked well in my opinion.It is all mortise and tenon, and was quite difficult to plan the order of the glue up. I think I dry-assembled it about 100 times before the first drop of glue. Especially hard was the front angled corner, 5 different parts come together there, and it is also where the stress concentrates when you lean on the desk surface.I logged my time, and it took about 170 hours without the design time. My excuse: the only power tool I have is a table saw for ripping, everything else was done by pull saw, chisels, hand planes, etc. Nice and quiet. Oh yea, a random orbital sander (power tool?), not so quiet.

Whiskey Barrel Coffee Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Whiskey Barrel Coffee TableI was commissioned to build this coffee table and the buyer sent the barrel (never agree to this). It was in terrible shape. I ended up replacing it with a much better one. It is all oak with the exception of the base. Even a decent barrel is a pain in the butt to get together solidly.I screwed the bands to the barrel when it was complete, ground off the heads, and welded them to the bands for a cleaner look. The top is all oak joined with #20 biscuits and dowels. I opted for parallel hinges so his wife could store stuff in it and they could use it to eat on when they don't feel like leaving the couch. All-in-all, it was a fun project that taught me some things. One was that I hope to never have to do again.

Camp Blade

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Camp BladeI was looking for a hefty camping all around knife but couldn't find one I liked so figured I'll make one. For a long time I've wanted to get into knife making but do not have the metal forging setup. This time around I went with a blade kit from https://www.knifekits.com which overall is pretty nice. blade arrived pre-sharpened to scary sharp levels (unexpected) and a set of curly maple scales (no, I did not use it as I wanted a darker look). Looking at their website now, they do seem to offer all kind of scale options (but at the time it was “random scales of sellers choice”).For the scales I ended up slicing up a scrap rosewood I had laying around waiting to be put to a good use. sizing was perfect for this. Since I no longer have any of my power tools, I ended up ordering a ryoba and dozuki from https://www.katzmoseswoodworking.com/ which worked out great! It's been a while since I actively did any cutting, so was a good excuse to get back to it.Overall, many rooms for improvements, but this was more of a play around with type project and learning as I go along. overall pleased with how it came out, and know what to do better next time around.

Needing Ideas on White Oak BurlEarly spring of 2019, I happened onto a very large and heavy white oak burl. I have had it in my winter heated shop until this point. To load it I had to cut some of the sides off to get it loaded into the truck to transport. I decided to slice up one of the cutoff ends and I haven't decided what to do with it yet. Looking for suggestions.

Cedar Bowl

Furnished content.

Cedar BowlThis is a gift for Dick Versluis, from our woodworking guild, who acquired a lot of cedar from a 150 yr old pickle vat that was disassembled years ago and stored in his neighbor's barn . I got one plank and wanted to show Dick what it looked like turned.I stumbled across a You Tube video from Sprague Woodturning ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kv8RD9LvS0M ) where the guy was inlaying twisted copper wire in the rim of his bowl..so I just had to incorporate that into this one. I stripped the insulation off about 4 ft of 14 gauge solid copper wire and twisted it the my drill just as he did. He used soapstone and I used turquoise for the added fill inlay.This bowl is 7” x 2” high and finished with Danish Oil and buffed and waxed.Below are some of the process shots:Cheers, JimTwisting the wire:

Walnut & Rosewood / Secret compartment boxes SMade these for some friends and wanted to see if I could make a secret compartment using the tray with magnets,To get to the secret area just turn the upper tray 180 and the magnets will grip the magnets with the removable lower tray. The box is 11 tall and 8.5 deep and 12 wide. (See pictures 3 and 4 ) I decided to use some cedar for the tray which I had never used on a project. Each tray bottom is bookmatched to try to have some grain feature.The drawers I could have done better on as this is my second attempt at small drawer application….
I decided to use Enduro Var Satin with a few coats of wax.

Pandemic Sun Room

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Pandemic Sun RoomMy wife has some really awesome gardens and has always wanted a sun room in the main one. Since I'm always looking for the next project this looked like a good one to do this summer. I started it on June 1 and finished on Labor Day and worked on it almost daily. It has insulation, electricity, and Ipe(Brazilian Walnut ) flooring that I found on Craigslist for under a dollar a square foot. Most of the wood is Western Red Cedar that I either have been hoarding over the years or had a local sawmill cut for me. The ceiling is 1×12 old growth clear VG Cedar that I ship lapped that I salvaged from a former sawmill owner's house built in 1957. I made all the door and window jambs and trimwork and found all the doors and windows at local salvage stores and Craigslist and rehabbed before installing. A fun project but I have to admit I'm a little burned out.

Flea market find from the good old days.Wood jaws are the way to go when doing something like this. I think that I can hold most anything in wood jaws.3 rings of 32 segments each, glued assembled on the lathe.I used hot glue to attach the insulator. It set up quickly. I put it in the microwave to heat up so that I could set it level.4 & 3/4” at base x 4 & 1/2” tall. Mohawk Dead Flat lacquer

Screwdrivers for Christmas

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Screwdrivers for ChristmasI have had an idea for years to go back to traditional days and make a home made Christmas. I knew with a large family I would have to start early so I began back in August. Trying to decide what to make became the problem. Then I thought, what guy wouldn't want a hand made multi drive screw driver. I hit my wood stock and made the blanks, and with pretty weather, began turning. (I have to do lathe work outside). I got them to shape and finished the turning and installing the shaft inside. These will cover my Brothers, Brother in laws and Sons just fine.The woods are walnut, pear, maple, cherry, box elder and oak. In one of the walnut one's I got creative and cut in for a Virginia state quarter in the end. For a BIL that recently retired from the state. I have a mug made by hokieken and he put one on the top and I always wanted to try this. Thanks for the inspiration Ken! For a finish I sanded to 800 grit then wet sanded to 1000. I topped this off with shellac and used a rag to “burn in” the finish. They are dry after application and then waxed. Smooth as silk!I'm hoping my Idea works out and all my family enjoy my trip to nostalgia. Now to begin the projects for the ladies in my family! Thanks for lookingThe photography is my Son's work, and he don't even know one of these are his! :-)))

Quarantine teaching break

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Quarantine teaching break I needed a desk to hold a second monitor for teaching during this school year but I didn't want something that was going to be sitting around and open and be a one hit wonder. I was able to use pieces I had (including a messed up epoxy piece) to make this. It has a hinged front that folds down and opens up to be a desk revealing the second monitor.
After this school year, and this Covid craziness, is over I will take out the monitor and put a shelf inside. The space inside is about 4,25 wide, which is just big enough for most bottles of liquor. This will become a post quarantine liquor bar for parties and get togethers!
The desk is walnut, spalted maple, chill epoxy and black diamond pigments, and a spray lacquer

Super Mario themed rock climbing wall

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Super Mario themed rock climbing wallOver the last couple months my boys and I have been working on a Super Mario themed rock climbing wall. They helped build, paint, lay out, and assemble almost every piece in some way or another. I'm not sure who's having more fun, me or them!It features a question block that lights up and makes a coin “bling” when you hit the bottom as incentive to reach the top, and a plush 1-up mushroom for an extra life in case you fall. The cushion on the bottom is a Nugget and serves as its own source of creativity, like the time when Bowser stole the 1-up and put it atop his castle!My materials list with links, costs, and quantities is all in a google doc here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1n_e-vXi3dOUHtWXetfCcmWgYUEp4fcEYVf6ocFY3y1o/edit?usp=sharingI made a few blog posts about the progress here that have way more detail:

(from Lumberjocks.com)


Sapele C-TableI made this C-Table to go with my wife's favorite chair. I paired 3/4 Sapele boards with a tropical walnut accent piece. I mitered the edge and reinforced with splines of the tropical hardwood (my first time using angled splines). The second upright piece made it plenty strong and allowed a little storage spot, which you don't usually get with a C-Table. I cut out some space on the foot so that the table could go around a chair leg if necessary. Very fun project.

Segmented walking bait

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Segmented walking baitYet another bait made while I'm in a pandemic mood. This is a segmented walking bait. The paint pattern is a chub, which is a common north American bait fish found all over. It started out as a small piece of 40 yr old pine I had around and ended up a fish. As usual I made everything except the hooks The video below shows the build from block of wood to getting it wet. The video also shows how I make eyes.
This pandemic will last through the winter. The experts pretty much say so. At this rate I'll be in more baits than I can fling by the time it ends. Like I always say, “Everybody has to have a hobby.”

The Schumann Resonance Anomaly Mallet Result

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


The Schumann Resonance Anomaly Mallet ResultDISCLAIMER: I, like you, have some opinions that lean one way or the other from straight riding the rail. I know that's not okay these days, but I also speak my mind so it doesn't consume my spirit. If you don't like things that don't jive with your world views, congratulations. We all feel that way. If, however, those poopy old opposing perspectives offend you to a power level over five thousand, or if a paradigm shift is too much for your fragile temperament, my name is Mike and I'll be your cognitive dissonance instructor for the semester. Please turn your cellular devices on silent and save your questions until the end. But seriously, if you can't take a joke you're in the wrong place… You've been warned.AAAAAHHHHHH! It's “current year” bros, and also the end of the world!!!!! Noooooooo! Heckerinos!! The HUMANITY?! Or something like that.No, just the end of this wood. And by that I mean the remaining bits of curled maple I had been saving. Which to me might as well be the end of the world. That wood is my JAM, Holmes. Word to your mother.Okay, to say I embellished there a scoach would be wildly under selling it. My apologies. That being said, I don't recall witnessing the fundamental understanding of physics as we know it being uprooted and bent over in the blink of an eye quite like this.Since 1952, Schumann's theory and findings on resonance (continual vibrations of Hz frequencies in our planet's ionosphere generated by anything electromagnetic we experience on earth, from solar flares and lightning all the way down to human brain activity) might not “ring a bell” to you. Yet that is… Yes, pun intended. I don't care if it was corny…, quit trying to unwind or to enjoy your free time this instant, and get force fed some heavy reading guys. New normal time. I know because every radio commercial that was made since March keeps telling me so. Over, and over, and over…You know you love the song your antique rip saw sings when you send it gracefully through that high Janka rated board you've been waiting to transform into literal perfection. Admit it. It's not my personal bias or anything. Using only hand tools to build since day one has nothing to do with this, I assure you. That song though? That is the stuff geniuses such as Tesla and Einstein simply LIVED for! The hum of excellence, if you will.This week for the first time in recent history post 1950's (that we're aware of anyway, thanks to the infallibility of the public school system) we've had the metric for measuring the “heartbeat of mother earth”. A few of us conspiratorial nerds around the globe woke to behold something that scattered the pillar our universe stands upon to the winds.That's right. Tin foil hats for every man woman and child. On what was supposed to be a relaxing holiday weekend. Love me yet?Long story short, the only other community I'd care to be a part of on the internet lost its collective sheeeit!! Most believed (and some still do) that this anomaly set in motion, if not outright was, the end for humanity. After all, it basically meant our magnetic shield went bye bye. Along with all the cool things it does for us. Such as the tiny task of protecting us from the absolute nightmare that you probably refer to as “space”. Doesn't sound big to you? Good. It wasn't. Well, kinda.Tell that to every compass on the planet as it helplessly read wrong. Or the US stock market while the Dow reportedly plummeted 800+ points in the time it took me to eat two McDoubles. Or Mexico who immediately noticed the loss of 100% of it's radar capabilities. Or the people in Jamaica who had never seen hail before. Looking back I feel outdone. Being beaten by Jamaica at anything sucks, and I was shocked. They were TERRIFIED! Imagine what that must have sounded like to those poor people down there. I mean, yikes! These are but a mere few of dozens if not hundreds of peculiar occurrences to follow suit. For the rest of the good stuff, search Twitter. It's still aflame with Schumann posts. And will be until we can figure out wtf that was. I lived my adult life believing that was not only impossible, but that the Hokey Pokey was what “it” was all about. Not some crazy Cosmic shenanigans. I now know better. The Macarena was way better anyway. In my humble opinion that is.For nearly 48 hours the lack of data upon which lame assed guys like me fall face first to after a long day of BS was more than ominous. The dark half of the planet saw many, many people with no real common denominator bolt out of bed washed in fear, anxious or aggressively sickened, around 4 am. Who gets up at 4 am? If that doesn't display how odd it was, go watch Black Mirror or something… That's too early for anyone with a pulse.Being a lover of data I was compelled to relentlessly prod everyone I knew about their unknowing collective experiences while lacking what's known as the healing frequency. Of course, everyone I know has a life and therefore had no idea what that crap was. All they knew was they were in no mood for my excitement or barrage of questions that morning. I got btfo'd in many creative and unique ways, but I got my test sample to take back to the boys.What I found was enough to make me go hide in the shop for a second and unpucker my coinpurse. The world wasn't gonna ass out on ol' Mikey without one last nearly mediocre build. Not on my watch. Or bench. Or whatever.After work I had no choice but to provide my solar wind bitch-slapping pal an offering; wood that looks like coco mix when you do stuff to it that makes it tiny wood. You probably call it curled maple though, because you're not an idiot. Don't be jealous. It's hard work surviving with an iq that couldn't match Shaquille O'Neal's shoe size on its best day. I just make it look easy. Trust me.I decided to test my luck with a turn of the century knockdown carpenter style mallet. The other turn of the century kids. Those of you under 40 are likely thinking of the now obscure pager 90's cool guys used to proudly display on their blue jean's front pocket. Cool look, I agree.You bet your smart face I went with the easiest one I could force my scattered and reluctant mind to draw up. No time for a real woodworker's mortice. Ergonomic grip? Huh uh. No sir, what with the Death Star theme subconsciously filling the void I was feeling and all. I laugh in the face of death, then he does too when he sees my finished product. Giving me a chance to go on writing long drawn out sentences in order to see my “work” was a win for him too. Grim got a sensible chuckle out of the deal, and I hope you will too.I quickly miter cut a contrasting centerpiece to wedge a handle, beveled the sides as close to accurate as I could, and sanded down a taper on the non-business end of that bad boy like there was no tomorrow. Admittedly I believed it to be a possibility at the time. Incoming nothingburger. 2020 Deja Vu anyone? Everyone? I thought so…Before you judge me, I beg you to broaden your perspectives for a second. I, as well as you, exist now in a society where anyone could kill you with their self centered and pesky need to breathe. Half of us or sadly more are still terrified of a world ending economy murdering and most of all deadly virus that's so menacingly spooky and obvious that one has to take a test to know if one may actually have it. Assuming one wasn't given a faulty test, like over a third are now openly admitted to have been. A scary virus which by absolutely NO coincidences has the symptoms of anyone that ever lived, on any given day, at any time. One that would absolutely not be used for political or financial gain. C'mon, this doesn't sound like snake oil. You quit that! Worst of all, it was coming for anyone you knew who had two or more life threatening illnesses. Provided, of course, they were over the age of 86. I myself lost my co-worker's buddy's girlfriend's Gramparino. Long, long distance gramps, I was told with no proof, was merely resting peacefully in a medically induced coma, recovering (again, kinda) I guess from a triple bypass heart surgery. Only 98 years young from what my buddy's buddy's former roommate's attorney told that list of people I don't know. Yes sir, far too soon. He had almost but not really avoided the onset complications of becoming septic from an infection from the surgery. As well as a lifetime of drinking/smoking/being morbidly obese. Nobody saw it coming when that nasty virus took him away. The virus that up until now of course had never been able to infect humans and had neither a reason nor a precedent to, but now decided it needed to. That's how evolution of viruses work and all. That's what the privately owned, non government regulated WHO (which just so happens to own the patents for numerous infectious diseases) president (currently accused of covering up multiple malaria outbreaks in his own country and allegedly holds no medical license or training but a mysterious yet convenient work history as a career politician in its place) told me. Forget all of that though please, and pay no attention to the man behind the curtain… Sorry. I hate the way the coof is getting the credit here, if you couldn't tell by my ham fisted sarcasm. It's not as if I lost much. My savings. A ton personal freedoms. I gained the right to look like a Mortal Kombat character in public though. I always did love Scorpion…There you have it. The opposing world view I was talking about. Scorpion, from Mortal Kombat… I know some of you were Sub Zero fans, and I'm prepared to get drug across the comment section for saying it. The guy said “get over here”. Really, really cool I might add. Sue me. I tried to warn you.Long story short? Crap. I did put that in there. Okay. Look guys, I made a wooden mallet instead of panicking and losing my mind, like the majority of my peers watching space for our imminent demise were sadly but predictably unable to avoid. Boom… Ended that one on a high note. None of this will be on the test by the way. Final score?PlumberMike: 01
As if it wasn't already far fetched enough without the other poorly doctored official narrative: 00And the crowd goes wild!!

Octagon Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Octagon TableI made this octagon shaped table for our breakfast room. The table top and base (under the milk can pedestal) are walnut and spalted maple. The top is glued up in kind of a segmented fashion and the base is truly segmented. I started out with a rusted old milk can for the pedestal and sanded it up real smooth then painted it. Then I glued up and turned a base for the can to sit in. We have a small dairy and the can was in the old milk parlor that dates back to the 1940's. The lettering on the can, Lutheridge Farm is the name of our farm. I hope these pictures aren't sideways in the final posting. They are not in my picture gallery but when I upload them they are sideways and I don't know how to change it. If they are, please excuse.

DIY Cherry End Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


DIY Cherry End Table So i got a load of Cherry from a local sawyer. I thought about this project for a while and wanted to make something that would push myself in designing an original piece of furniture. I knew i wanted to make the top of the table float and it went from there. I used elements of mid century furniture as well as a live edge top, i like to say this piece is Eames meets Nakashima….. I like how the piece turned out even though it would be out of place in most people's homes. It was a fun build and I am glad i decided to push myself out of my comfort zone and came up with this one of a kind piece. If you want to see the whole build process, you can check it out here:https://youtu.be/Fs6cEAckXRI

Modern TV ConsoleA cool tv console I made from walnut that the client had brought and laid out for me. We used the live edge for the pulls, but unlike my last post we covered up the gap with hot rolled steel. The top is solid walnut that waterfalls into the sides. The box is edge banded play with GF black Enduro Poly. The walnut is all finished with GF Enduro-var.

Cherry craftsman style lamp w/ stained glass

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Cherry craftsman style lamp w/ stained glassThis arts and craft cherry lamp was a design i created for my study. The finish is currently only a shelac based on the heat generated from the light. So i am testing to see how long it holds up before i need to do additional top coat treatment. 6 month so far and seems to be holding up well. The top allows light to cut thourgh in a pattern that shows on the ceiling and adds interedting shadows at night. Next time i would make it taller and more slender i think. Takes up a fair amount of real estate on the desk.I am tool poor, although my wife doesn't hhink so. So no scroll saw to do something more fancy. Most of the top was hand planed. hand sanded and finished. Some band saw work was used for the legs.

intarsia giraffeMy daughter in law asked me if I could make an intarsia giraffe to hang in the bedroom of my soon to be born grandson. I don't have too much experience with intarsia but I thought I would give it a try. It is made from a plan by Judy Gale Roberts and is made from Cedar, Basswood and Walnut. There are 128 individual pieces. Thanks for looking.

Band Saw Cabinet

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Band Saw CabinetShort version: This is roughly a 24” x 24” x 16” cabinet I made with two drawers to put my Craftsman 12” band saw on. It is made of maple plywood with maple trim. The drawer faces are maple plywood with edge banding. The bottom drawer has dividers for blade storage and the top drawer is just a band saw spare parts crap catcher. The mobile base is a standard Rockler DIY kit.Longer version: I build this for two primary reasons.
1 – I absolutely hate x loathe the angled metal stands that come with many tools. They seriously drive me crazy with their odd shape and uselessness other than holding up a tool.
2 – I like to keep all the “stuff” for a tool at the tool so I'm not taking several trips around the shop for a blade change or fence setup.You may be wondering why this is made of expensive maple and maple ply. Well the answer to that is my dad is semi retired and runs a Home Depot tool rental department. A contractor brought back a damaged sheet of maple ply and a bunch of 1×4s that were twisted or had ugly grain. I guess they were doing a custom built something or other and none of the materials they returned passed muster. I got everything for about 30% of retail so figured why not use it all as practice pieces.The cabinet is basic 3/4 ply carcass and face frame with some extra top and side supports. I built 3 more face frames to trim out the sides and back. The top trip is a basic picture frame with some oak dowels to reinforce the corners. This was a rather challenging thing for no other reason than it was that one project that fights you the whole way.The full extension ball bearing slides were cheap ones I got off Amazon and had to wait for shipping from China. Like bonehead I didn't double check their measurements before building the drawer boxes. Well the slides are about 17/32” instead of a true 1/2” so I got to build drawer boxes twice. Good practice for me. Unfortunately I rushed the second set and the top drawer is not quite square now. After two sets of drawers and it being a shop piece I'm calling it good.I learned the hard way I don't like my battery powered trim router for some tasks. It's a little top heavy and i gouged the face frame. No big deal just make a trim piece and hide the ugly.
And while I was at it I never really liked the dust collection on this band saw so I used the factory metal bracket but built my own adapter. I epoxied one of those awkward crevice tools for a shop vac to the my custom braket.
Next step will be adding a 4” port to the bottom wheel cabinet opposite corner of the motor. I know its a lot of work for a 12” band saw but upgrading is out of the question for the time being so why not make what I have something I enjoy using.

I am NOT "Totally unhinged".

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


I am NOT "Totally unhinged".Boys and Girls,For those that are getting sick and tired of my posts, blame LRM (LeeRoyMan) and PM him your abuses.
He had the audacity to challenge my unused router bits in one of my previous posts which compelled me to investigate. I slowly recalled that my purchase of an Incra Hingecrafter jig

also made me invest into a set of Whiteside Half-round Bits

making some of my individual bits redundant.
Having terminated my forensic investigation on this Mandarin Countersink Box that I fabricated not that long ago,

I concluded that a quick write up on it may be in order.
No, it's not a box for mandarins and can be observed that its too small for a Chinese man, but rather a box that reads from right to left in Chinese hanzi tradition.A few years ago, out of desperation, I bought some cheap countersink bits from Bunnings ($30 or so a set of 5) that were simply a bucket of shit

I promptly ordered some TCT tipped countersinks with tapered drill bits from ToolsToday (a Yankee outlet) and when they arrived, I thought they'd be an ideal candidate for a box.A basic finger joint box was designed using SketchUp,

and Corel for the box engraving, using the PINEWOOD font,
Before it got off the drawing board, the Hingecrafter jig I impulsively ordered for no other reason than it might be handy some time in the future, arrived and the brain went into overdrive and considered a wooden hinged box for the new countersinks.With this change of tack, I RTFM'd and started the hinge making process at the router table taking full advantage of my Using my Incra LS positioner's features. The hinges were trimmed to specifications, the appropriate dia. Jig setup and the holes drilled using the long 1/8 drill bit that came with the kit.

Tried a test fit,
Unfortunately at the time, my camera was not an integral part of my woodworking progress so there are no pictures of the box making process and you'll just have to believe what I type that follows is the truth and nothing but the truthThe box was made out of pine with a construction revamp. As per the original SketchUp design, a rotating bit holder was made, engraved, white wood-putty filled and inserted,
Used a pair of rare-earth magnets to keep the box closed.
The frustrating part of this build was that these countersink bits are now also redundant once I upgraded my countersink set to these,
The box now just gets lost in the annals of the workshop and accumulates sawdust.

Summer BoxesHere are a few boxes i made this summer. I made 3 jewelry boxes with sliding trays. Picture #3 shows the inside of the box in picture #4. – The fourth picture is Mahogany with Maple splines and inlays. – The fifth picture is Aspen with Canary Wood inset in the lid and Mahogany splines. – Picture 6 is Cherry with Canary Wood inset in the lid and Maple splinesI made 4 small. open boxes out of scraps created when I practiced cutting miters. After I cut the miters , I used the scraps to practice resawing on my band saw. I did not want to toss the scraps so I made some open boxes out of them.
