I don’t often find myself in the shop twiddling my thumbs on what to make next, but sometimes I need a little inspiration, a quick gift, or a time filler while I’m waiting for a finish to dry. I have a great Pinterest board for woodworking ideas, but I don’t often have my iPad out in the shop, so I simply printed my pins onto paper and hung it on the bulletin board. The first couple pages were portrait, but the rest are landscape which works better because the projects get c...
Plane Storage on slanting board . . Plane Storage on slanting board I got to thinking about my planes scattered all over the shop… on shelves, in drawers, & here & there. I could consolidate their storage, get them all together, and make more overall storage space for other things! So, I grabbed some scraps and started out Mapping Out where the various planes would fit on the board. I screwed 1/4” ply 1/2” strips for separators, drew more ...
So maybe this isn’t a butcher block glue-up in the traditional sense, but it is a very close relative with similar construction, design, and look. See how Scott has assembled butcher-block to be used to make bar stool seats! If the video doesn’t appear, CLICK HERE to watch it now!

I’m working on this coffee table as a wedding gift for my cousin and his wife-to-be. I’m a log furniture maker so there are a lot of techniques I haven’t been introduced to until I started working with fellow Lumber Jock, Kris Williams. Kris makes fine rustic furniture so I’ve been quite fascinated by some of the ways he does things and decided to start playing around with some of it. Of course, I don’t have all the machines Kris has so I require his help for a f...
Here was an easy project that I did recently; a marble board game. I used an old board game that I had as a template. Here is my attempt at making a video of how I made it, and as always you can check out my website at: www.woodlogger.com to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop.I also put up a listing of free project plans that you might find useful.

One of the pleasant things about moving from a beginner to a more intermediate stage in woodworking is that you start paying attention to things you didn’t really focus on before. My work tonight, for example, involves a little more thought about grain orientation in glue-ups. I am still working on cutting boards, I have to have a dozen made in the next week or so. As I am moving along, I have had to give some more concentrated thought in regards to the wood pieces I salvaged and how...
