Navajo Rain Cross
My latest woven basket illusion, a ceremonial basket design that I call Navajo Rain Cross.  The cross symbol can also be found on Navajo rugs and pottery and is often used to represent Spider Woman, the first Navajo deity. The basket is twelve inches in diameter and the wood is maple. Beading, pyrography and ink were used to create the basket illusion.

Carport upgrade
With my deck refurb in the finishing painting stage I can now work on next outside project.  For whatever reason the rest of the house has vinyl siding and soffits, but he carport seems to have been left out.  For many years I have just painted it, but now I just want the vinyl soffit and be done with it.  Of course while I am at it a few upgrades are in order.

Ducts and blast gates
Now this may be getting the cart before the horse but lets call it collecting supplies you will need to connect your DC to machines. Thin wall PVC will work just fine . For the best you can order metal ducts any size you want but you will also have to buy expensive connections .

Guys, I have a rough slab to flatten and am making a router sled, to do the work I found an Whiteside 6220 router bit which looks like it would do a good job. Found some carbide insert ones that are not in the budget, ($100) any others I should look at?

How To Make an Adjustable Sawtooth Shelf Support System
For my latest project building some pine cabinets for a customer of mine, he has requested that the upper cabinet has a sawtooth shelf support system. He loves the old timey look it offers, and I like it too.

Library Table
Here is the pictures of a library table that my Dad's parents had. It used to be a mission style designed library table. Most of the wood was either split, broken or rotting away. I was able to only save the top and the 4 feet to the table which is the darker wood of the table. The rest I had to rebuild and I even turned the legs to just make the table our own style. We just got the table stained and varnished. We think the table turned out really nice and a usable table again.

Bronze or Iron?
My next plane will probably be a smoothing plane, not right away, but hopefully not too far in the future.  I was looking at the Lie-Nielsen web site, and I noticed that their No. 4 Smoothing Plane is offered in both a bronze and an iron body version.  The bronze was $50 more.  So is there any advantage to bronze?  And if so, is that advantage of any significance to a hobbyist like me?

Big Ash Mallet
I am on a quest to build some Appalachia style ladder back chairs, or shaker chairs as well, and one of the tools I have been in dire need of is a mallet to strike wood, and chisel with. So after a little bit of research, I came up with my own design, and I had a great time too!
Thanks for looking at my Big Ash Mallet, and no, the title is not original, it was from a Roy Underhill episode!

This is a wonderful project, from one of my favorite time periods, Colonial America. Just imagine making this project from maple, or better yet, curly maple and giving it a dark deep antique stain. As is with all these Workbench Magazine plans, they are more of a schematic than they are plans, giving you dimensions and scaled grids for your own templates.

an angel to be reproduced
Found her sitting on wife's dresser and she told me she wants a few twins if that's possible... funny how wooden angels can talk....Well I have all the ingredients here and there and I might throw in a real rock instead of the wood she stands on...So why not since I got to drink about 60 bottles of GA so this project will take a break while I get my tongue red four or five times a day for a few days so I can get started on these angels twins...
   I will turn on my Dremel tonight so it will be good and warm in the morning when I start slinging wood chips on my clean floor...I even just restocked my used up roll of bailing wire with a fresh new roll so hey....

North House Folk School
North House was founded in 1997 by a small handful of inspired locals passionate about traditional craft and cooperative learning. When we published the first catalog of 12 courses (including Inuit kayak building, Scandinavian bowl carving, and canoe paddle making), North House didn't yet have a home — or even a classroom. However, two old forest service buildings on the harbor serendipitously became available, and North House settled in and began building a campus.

Workbench Magazine November-December 1965 Modern Workbench
This schema is a very interesting version of a workbench. If you download and look at the schema, you'll not only have a great plan for a workbench, but you'll also see many parts that can be built separately for your own workbench, new or existing, there are quite a few great ideas in this schema. There are even details on building your own wooden vise, a very interesting vise at that.
Enjoy!
