    First project I'll claim. Walnut nightstand

    Well I'm 95% done with the nightstand for the wife. Learned quite a bit from this one as I had to do some real joinery. I took this from a plan in Fine woodworking and the sliding dovetails, haunched tenons and frame and panel construction, half blind dovetail drawer box. (leigh jig!) were...

    I would like to thank everyone on this forum for their suggestions, help and ideas over the last few months.

    First real project

    About 9 mos. ago, I got a piece of 3/8" scrap plywood and made a shifter plate for my '91 Mitsubishi beater truck (don't laugh, it works). And I felt a sense of accomplishment I hadn't in a while. One of my favorite pastimes is the game of cornhole. I bought myself a miter saw, a circular-saw...

    Three Firsts One Project

    Attempted my first wet turned, between centers, natural edge bowl this evening. Need to buy a chuck for the new lathe, but had to turn something with it. A very good learning curve with this. I was doing pretty well and making my last scraping cut in the bottom, as I was coming out I had a...

    My first turning project...

    Well I finally got the goodwill lathe out, thanks again everyone. I attempted turning a top, it turned out pretty well, not quite enough weight to it, I will probably try and make a bigger one next time or turn a pen. Here are a few pics.

    Fireplace Mantel Project

    So, in general I am slow as I attempt any finer WW'ing. Tackling this mantel for my daughter's fireplace was hard for me to visualize and keep straight, as it was built upside down and backwards, gee that sounds like most of my work!! Good part of the whole thing is that I got to learn a bit...

    Project Completed

    I got the last coat of finish on the dresser/changing table today. I moved it into the house as suggested by a couple of members here. It made a huge difference in keeping the dust out of the finish. Not perfect, but I am happy. Now on to the crib! View image in gallery View image...
