This is not worthy of being called a project. Doing some fooling around with some scrap, I made a pair of similar napkin rings. One is 3/4 inch oak and the other is about 5/8 in ‘wedge’ wood pine. I cut these out using a hole saw with two rings installed on one arbor. Then I Sanded the faces and edges on a belt sander, creating bevels with the belt sander as well. Then I hand sanded and dunked them in boiled linseed oil. After that, I applied wax to them from a ca...
I’m doing some glue ups for a few small projects using all the wedges I cut from the chair legs.

Just in time for Halloween! Build this easy made candy dish in the shape of a coffin. after your base is in it’s final dimension (measurements included in video), there is no more measuring-even with the different angles. Check out the video and see how it is made. Please subscribe for more woodworking videos AND blacksmithing videos. And if you want to watch some nonprofessional welding, watch this video below as I create a skeleton out of some scrap metal around the shop.
[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto]Where do you find wood that isn’t plain pine boards and studs from the local lumberyard? If you don’t live near a furniture supply house or don’t want to pay for wood for small projects, do like I do. I live in a mid-sized town in the rural corner of New Jersey. When I’m out driving here and there I keep an eye out along the streets, mainly in my own town, for broken furniture. A lot of folks throw out broken chairs, but I don’t ha...
I needed some shelves in my office area, and wanted to challenge myself to come up with a super simple yet still strong design using random scraps. They’re basically 2×2 chunks with a dado cut to accept a bit of plywood. They’ve actually got the potential to not be very ugly, but I call these ones ugly for sure on account of the smudged paint, uneven bracket sizes and scrap planks thrown on top :) I used a stack of 3 circular saw blades as my dado set. The blades alon...
Every woodworker has a pile of lumber just sitting around. This weekend use some of it up to make a decorative pencil holder. Link to Video and Link to my Website
Well it has been a productive month in the shop for my daughter. She has tackled some pieces for her dollhouse that she wanted to make on her own. The first was a small easy chair and yesterday we worked on two beds. The chair was her idea and came straight from the scrap bin, at this point the miter box is the easiest way for her to work on cutting the scraps she has been using and she is happy to be using it, just working on those muscles. :) The chair consisted of just two pieces...
Sometimes I just want to make something. I get the woodworking bug so bad I just gotta do something and it doesn’t matter what. Am I alone in this? Luckily, I’ve been able to do a few woodworking things lately. I made lumber racks for my shop; I made a little platform that my lawnmower can fit underneath and that I can store my wheelbarrow on top of, thus making more room in the shop. I also just finished one of those pallet signs like you see on pinterest (for my sister-i...
