    Weird planer shavings

    Is a 15″ planer supposed to produce tight little tube shavings?


    My Lathe

    I wanted to take a better picture of my lathe. General 260, with fill block and 4″ risers. It also has a 60″ extension.


    Cellphone base

    We received cellphones at work to replace out desk phones and landlines in an effort to save the country money so I have this little thing laying flat on my desk all day. I decided to take some scrap material and make a stand for it.

    Wood Shrinkage

    Posted By on March 1, 2014

    Here’s a photo now in February of how much my walnut kitchen table has shrunk within the floating breadboard ends. Good thing they’re able to move around or the ends would have cracked the joint.
    I expect in the summer they will either come back or even expand past the end caps.

    Square mallets

    Posted By on January 12, 2014

    I finished two shop mallets for chisels, joinery and for using workbench holdfasts, one large and one smaller.
    Material used was maple with walnut accents. The mortise in the head is angled to match the tapered handle so it can slip out backwards but will tighten when swung.

    Today I turned this wooden mallet for chisels and carving made of a solid maple blank.

    End grain cutting boards

    I made these as gifts this Christmas, one to my wife.
    Maple/walnut end grain, finished with mineral oil and beeswax.

    Shot glass case

    Posted By on December 20, 2013

    I had this done for a customer who wanted a case for her collection of shot glasses. Each cell had to be 4″w x 4d” but the height was designed to have variable heights based on a sketch up. It’s actually 5 feet long.
    The 1″ thick case sides were made of maple, the inside was 1/2″ thick plywood with maple edge banding. Back panel was 1/4″ birch plywood.
    I have to say I underestimated the work involved with this one. One small error in any dimension through each cell off exponentially and it’s easy to see these lines stray off square.
    I had to redo it a couple times before I found a solid work flow.
    I took it as a learning experience.
