Image Uploading Suggestions

We appreciate your help in keeping our image gallery orderly and easy for others to research.

Please consider these suggestions while uploading your images.

 

  • Name your images before uploading to our gallery, the generic camera file names just look so messy. "Walnut Desk" looks so much better than "DSC19467je69.jpg". You can also name your images after you upload them to our gallery for your convenience.
  • After uploading your images, please consider adding a description so your viewers know what they are seeing and the wood used, the tools used, or even your inspiration for building the project.
  • Please consider tagging your images so our members and guests will be able to successfully search for your image and related images. Tags can be inserted into the "Tags" field. An example of tags and their names should be related to your project. If your project images are of a Walnut Desk with dovetail joinery, than tag the image with "Walnut", "Desk", "Dovetail" etc.

 

Thank you for your cooperation. :)

The Management

This is the General Woodworking gallery, for images that don't fit into the other categories available for uploading of your images. If you have an idea for a category, please contact us and make your suggestion, thank you.

  1. Just a Tool Chest Updated

    Was getting too much sitting around from Yard Sales....Since I did have a nice supply of Ash 1 x 6s Thought I could build a chest to hide all the stuff in, including any more that MIGHT wander in...goal was to have it done before the Labor Day Weekend gets here. 
     
    Lots of Dovetails were used...both to join the case, and build 5 drawers.   back of the case is 1/4" pine plywood.   I think there MIGHT be a Build-along thread somewhere?  Dark brown stain, due to it using an old Walnut Coffee Table as a base.  Coat of Amber Shellac followed that, then a coat of clear gloss poly.
     
    Bright hardware...as the clunky "Olde Brass" stuff got vetoed.   A locking bar was cobbled up, along with lockable latches for the lid....Padlocks (3) all use the same key..
    A length of black chain to keep the lid from tilting too far back...Lid uses a Piano type of hinge. 
     
    Just under a month of puttering around in the shop..

  3. Spokeshave case, from scrap wood Updated

    Still had some Ash leftovers from the last project...and a lot of 3/4" x 3/4" sticks...so I made a box, used a Frame & Panel design....with Tongue & Groove corner joints..
     
    Wasn't enough room for grooves for the bottom panel..so it is sitting on a mitered frame glued around the bottom of the box.  Then a rack was made from Pine scraps...to hold my 4 spokeshaves.  added what was left of that black chain to limit how far back the lid will lean.   Simple latch the close the lid, which has Brass hinges.
     
    No stain, just 3 coats of Amber Shellac, followed by 3 coats of clear gloss varnish.  stands 5-1/2" tall x 7-1/4" x 12-3/8"...even has a name brand on the lid..

  4. Cutting board of scraps Updated

    Decided to use up a bunch of scraps,  mainly strips that were ripped off to make a board the right width...cut them to about 12"...anything shorter was tossed into the burn pile can.....Then glue things up into a panel....clean it up, square it up, round the corners and edges....a couple of coats of mineral oilas a finish.    Scrap pile is smaller, and have a cutting board for the Kitchen...5/8" x 10-1/4" x 11".  No real pattern, just what seemed to look best....Thanks for looking in...

  7. Shoe Rack Updated

    Being my wife is from Ukraine we have adopted the method of removing shoes as we come into the house.  Great idea but it was a cluster with the 6 pairs we keep handy for everyday stuff.  Space was limited as I have a large cabinet to move from other side of room to sit next to this.  On the other side a door must have room to open.  Managed to squeeze 3 pairs per row despite this limitation.
     
    Wire shelves are the popular white ones found in many homes today.  Didn't like the white with my dark walnut stain so I painted them Hammered Copper.  Blends in much better.
     
    For this project I used traditional joinery and some well hidden screws.  No pin nails to fill.  Took some time but I am pleased with the results.

  9. Hand Plane Til Updated

    Needed a new til to store the hand planes in, and keep the dust and other things off of them..  1 x 8 pine boards made the main case.  through dovetails joined the corners.   Sliding dovetails for the shelves to sit in.  Doors have plexiglass panels.   Piano hinges for the doors.   3 drawers for block planes and spare parts.  Witch's Brew, with a "dash" of Gunstock stain added for the finish...back of the case is pine 5/16' thick plywood.   Holds quite a few planes, too

  22. Sam Maloof Site Visit 2019 Updated

    My wife completely surprised me, we just had our 28th marriage anniversary and she loaded me up in the car and we drove to my anniversary present, I had no idea where we were going until I drove us up the main street of the Maloof residence and saw the brown colored historical site street sign that clearly stated "Sam Maloof Foundation Historical Site" and I jumped with joy.
    We live within an hour of the Maloof residence and I have never been there, it just seems like there is always something more important to do with our money, it just kind of always get set by the side for a future visit.
    It was a wonderful tour, although we were not allowed to take pictures of the inside of the residence, I was able to get a few images of the woodshop, the barn full of walnut slabs and rough boards they still use today, and a fun trip through a couple onsite galleries.
