small side table with dovetailed legsMade a little table for my lounge chair: 6/4 legs dovetailed into a 6/4 top. Fun, easy project and super strong. Was looking for a fairly minimalist table and this fit the bill. All hand tools.

Table for office

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Table for officeHi, I made this table for the office.The top is two pieces of baltic birch, which I pocket hole jointed together (I just bought a kreg pocket hole joint jig, and am a fan!). And, I attached a strip of red oak on either side – using pocket hold jig.The legs are just 2×4's, which I tapered on my table saw – first time tapering legs, and I really like how they look.Then I also added a little hanging shelf for a computer to sit.Finally, I finished it with danish oil which is my “go to” finishActually, I was wondering, is there a rub on oil finish that produces a lighter, closer to the original wood color finish?Thanks for your advice!

Olivewood and Resin wine caddy

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Olivewood and Resin wine caddyI've been trying out casting resin and wood together with small projects. I had a silicone mold for wine caddies I bought to see if I could turn out a bunch for craft fairs. Used two pieces of scrap olive wood that came off a slab project laying around followed by resin mixed some mica powders from a sample pack.Planed down what came out of the mold to a uniform thickness and then smoothed out the bulges caused by the pieces being slightly bigger than the mold. I rounded overall the edges on with a 1/8” roundover bit in my router table. This was then followed by sanding at 120, 150, 240, 320, 400, 500, 1000, and 2000. The 500-1000 was wet sanding and the 2000 Abralon pad had polarshine on it. I went back and scuffed up the wood with 320 to open the wood up a bit. Finished everything with a coat of Totalboat's wood honey which I applied, let sit for about 20 minutes, and buffed off with a cloth.Overall I think it came out well and I learned a few things of what not to do when casting epoxy with wood and where I could improve. The end product looks a lot better and much different than what came out of the mold.
