Cherry and Walnut Router Table Wing

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Cherry and Walnut Router Table Wing After almost three years of having it in a box under my table saw, I finally installed a cast iron General router table wing on my SawStop table saw. It was not an exact fit and I had to make some serious modifications. Because of the difference in wing sizes, I decided to install a cherry and walnut cutting board tail-piece. I had the lumber as scraps from a recent paddle build and hutch repair. Everything was glued up, a coat of Silver Tip 2-part epoxy was applied, sanded, and then 3 coats of marine spar varnish topped it all off.SawStop now makes a router table wing and router lift that bolts right in, but they didn't when I bought both the saw and wing. That said, the do-it-yourself option with the General or similar wing and lift is less than 1/2 the cost of the SawStop option.I documented the whole overbuilt process in a 2-part YouTube Video series and in part 1, I went over the steps I took getting the wing installed and mounted correctly and the installation of the router lift, plus a few tips. For the second of two videos, I detailed the fence installation, the vacuum box and dust collection, and the steps I took in making and installing the over-built wooden tail piece.Part 1:

Birthday Box

Furnished content.

Birthday BoxMy wife asked me to build a small box to hold some scented votive candles to send to her sister for a birthday.
The box is made from Brazilian Koa flooring and Red Oak leftovers. Finish is spray lacquer.
The initial is pyrography.
Turned out pretty sweet.
Thanks for looking.

Bookshelf

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


BookshelfThis modern look bookshelf was assembled using just dowels and wood glue. I chose to use Dowelmax to drill the holes and connect boards with dowels because I didn't want to have visible screws or pocket holes. Find the free plans at TheDIYPlan

Desk for my daughter, Reclaimed Pine Heartwood and Maple

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Desk for my daughter, Reclaimed Pine Heartwood and MapleMy 8 year-old elder daughter requested that I make her a desk for her to do her homework on. I may have overdone it a bit—she'll grow into it, but at 5-feet long, it's quite a lot of desk for a little girl. Guess I should have scaled things down. Took me long enough too—I started back in April and just delivered last week…Very grateful to Brett for sharing the plans for his Walnut and Maple desk, with an honorary mention to BroncoBrian, whose Purpleheart and Maple rendition of Brett's plans I first stumbled across.The top and drawer fronts are ~100 year old pine heartwood, formerly floorboards from the kitchen of my ~100 year old house. For the top, although the boards started out around 13/16”, even with cauls I had to plane it to about 11/16” to get things flat, making for a relatively thin top. The many nail holes are filled with West System epoxy, colored with some black pigment that I had sitting around from an attempt at colored concrete many years ago. Body is all hard maple, nothing too exciting there.I'm really please with how this turned out. Made a lot of progress with my skills—the dovetails on the drawers are my best yet. Also during this project I finally figured out how reliably to get my chisels super sharp (thanks to a Paul Sellers video), which was a big help with chopping mortises in that hard-as-rock maple!
