I recently completed this proof of concept and soon will be making this design in some Maple Burl. I just need to a few more tools… LOL

Fish Out of Water – Intarsia Woodworking Most everything that I do, I do with someone in mind and/or for some reason. I very rarely make something just to make it. I found a picture a while back that I really liked of a fish jumping up out of the water to catch a dragon-fly. What drew me to this design was the way the water seemed to splash right out of the frame over a log. I had it printed and held on to it until now. My brother-in-law had a band saw that he never used and it seem...
Here was an easy project that I did recently; a Marble Tic-Tac-Toe Game. You only need one board for this project and it’s something you can build in an afternoon. 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.

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.

Not so long ago I blew my brains out on Christmas building. Starting in mid September then I made 21 different things, for a bunch of real different people. It was worth it yes, but I was mentally finished by the end. This year is wiser, lazier and lighter with only 5 types, some 9 pcs. but good ones, mostly culled from my favourites at LJ. Here are three. As is my custom I make something for my boss each year, by way of saying thank you for letting me have free access to our shop t...
Cut the last 4 foot piece three times. Cut two one foot legs first, then measure and cut the top piece. It should be about 22.5” or so. Put the legs in the leg slot. Make sure to leave enough room for the legs to slide in and out even after they are painted. Predrill, countersink and screw two screws per side. These are the legs. I find that it’s best to simply sand down the edges instead of using a round over router bit. I’ll cover sanding and routing i...
This lesson will complete the frame of the boards. Measure the distance between the two side frames. This will be the measurement of the end pieces. Make sure you measure this correctly, too large can be trimmed down, but too short will be waste. I use 4×4’s to hold the boards up. Make sure to flush up the end piece with the plywood and not the side piece. It’s common that the sides can be longer but these will be trimmed down with a router or sander later. Predr...
In this section I’m going to cover the tools and materials needed and the first step in making the boards. Here are a few examples of boards I’ve built. If you’ve never played cornhole before, it’s essentially horseshoes. You toss bean bags on to the boards and you get three points for making it in the hole, and one point for making it on the board. You play in teams and throw against the other team. I’ll include rules in the last post. Tools: Power DrillPower DriverJig Saw or ...
Hello Everyone. I have been enjoying lots of posts and classes on this website and I wanted to contribute something as well. I have built many cornhole sets over the past 7 years since my father, sister and I built our first. I believe our current design is great for a portable, regulation sized set. I know there are many tutorials on the web for building sets but this is mine. They are easy to build and when you get the hang of it, you can turn out a two boards in about an hour. I...
