Well, I am making some modifications to the original crown moulding profile for the case. I dont have all the bits, and my wood is all thicknessed to 3/4 and I dont have the time(only 5 more days till XMAS!!!!) to get it done. So I am modifying it to use what I have. This is what I am looking at doing. Ill try and post some actual photos today later too.
I just posted my first project: a rather long-winded story about my 19 year old deck and recovering from storm damage. The rest of the story is that my 80 year old tree gave me a lumber opportunity. First, those big limbs were 16 inches in diameter where they joined the trunk. Several feet of each limb is now in the possession of a good friend who is a wood turner. Second, the trunk was 23 inches in diameter at the base and 18 inches at a height of about 45 feet. It was hauled away i...

Well, After much thought and input from everyone. I decided to make 2 of these boards into Angel wings, My wife and I have an couple that are very special to us and they collect Angels.

Here is a picture of the woods I will be useing. The wings are the white oak crotch that I started this post ...
Some scroll work requires you to tilt the table. I accomplish this by allowing the table to pivot on the tower end and created a trundle on the opposite end. The thing to remember is the top of the table is 5” off the base. With the table width at 12” I created a curve so that the radius is 4 1/2” . The trundle is 2” wide 1/2” ply with a 3/4” slot in the middle. The slot can be smaller it just needs to be able to pass the lag bolt through it. The su...
Awhile back i cut down some oak trees for a friend. I took the firewood for myself and we loaded up the trunks on a 2 ton truck and hauled them to a mill for his personal use. When I recently started my own little woodshop he gave me some of that lumber to get started with. Since we are all natural born tightwads around here he gave me the worst bottom of the barrel lumber out of the whole bunch. But I’m not complaining about free material. Today I decided to see what I could get o...
WE had a 60 year old oak tree in the back yard that died – DRATS!!! Anyway we had to have it taken down because of it’s size. I was smart enough to save some branches to use on furture. I have enough for several projects. One picture shows two branches that I have cut into strips 3/8 inchs wide. NOw I need to plane and sand them to size. The real story behind the tree is that when my daughter was about 5 or 6 we played ball under the tree in the evenings. I am sure ...
This is the “Salzburg”....from www.wildwooddesigns.com. These are pics of the finished project from the weebsite and pics of what I’;ve completed so far.This is by far the most complicated and challenging project I have undertaken. For others, I’m sure it’s a walk in the park. For a project like, this I have to be in the “mood”. So this pattern is 5 stories, that means it is cut and assembled one story at a time. As of right now I just finishe...

I had just finished a pastryboard to my wife. and had nothing to do. I looked around the shop to see if there was something i could build. A few months ago i bought some pieces of oak to my kitchen project but i saved one of the pieces for special occations/projects. The grain was tighter and the weight was heavier than the other pieces. I saved it wanted to make something nice and useful of it. I decided to make a hand plane, Krenov style. I realize that oak is not the optimal wood for...
