536 “I love lamp” the veneer lampshade

December 22, 20143 Comments

During the long, cold winter nights I like to cozy up with a hot cup of cider and sit down to watch a movie or read a good book, and to help set the mood (because who DOESN’T take the time to set a mood?) I’ll turn on a nice accent light and let it […]

535 Wood body coffee scoop

December 12, 20146 Comments

Mornings can be rough for me, but a good cup of coffee can make all the difference. Over the years we’ve tried several different coffee makers, including the K-cups, but in the end we always come back to our good old Mr. Coffee coffee maker. As a result it’s important to make sure I get […]

534 Sharp as a Razor

November 24, 20143 Comments

The end of Movember is rapidly approaching, and that means soon there’s going to be a run on razor blades as some men return to their clean shaven ways. I’m not quite sure why anyone would want to do that, but to each their own I guess? So in today’s episode we’re making a stylish, […]

533 Hickory Beard Comb

November 7, 20144 Comments

In today’s episode we’re making a fun little project from more scrap wood lying around my shop, specifically we’re building a beard comb. Why a beard comb? Given it’s the beginning of November, that means it’s also the beginning of “Movember.” So I thought it would be a fun little project for some of my […]

531 Desktop Album Rack

October 10, 20140 Comments

No one will ever be able to say the Vanderlist family vinyl collection is overwhelming. It’s diverse to say the least, but that has more to do with them being picked up solely for use in a photo shoot by my wife versus played. Actually, we don’t even own a turntable, so even if we […]

530 Small turned mallet or “My first turning project!”

August 28, 201415 Comments

I knew it was eventually going to happen, the temptation is far too great to avoid. Don’t worry, I’m not talking about turning to the darkside and taking up knitting (although I wouldn’t mind making my own matching wool scarf and woobie set for winter, especially if it’s as cold as last year.) Instead, I’m […]

It’s “Scrap wood projects!” Continuing along with the last couple of episodes this one is no different. For today’s project all you need are some Metal Hinge Clips, Magnet Discs, and scrap wood. What […]

528 Hip photo clipboards

July 26, 20147 Comments

In the never-ending quest to answer the timeless woodworker question “what do you do with your scraps?” I have yet another answer, photo clipboards! Actually, this one came directly from my beautiful and amazing wife Samantha, who was looking for something new to present to her wedding photography clients. The concept is simple. Take a […]

527 Another bottle opener?

July 11, 20144 Comments

Short of having a bottle opener in every room of the house I don’t really have a need for another one. But when inspiration strikes, who am I to stand in its way? So on today’s episode we’re making another bottle opener. Except this time, I know for a fact you can easily find this […]

526 A bottle opener’s wooden makeover

June 29, 20142 Comments

For sure the warm days of summer are upon us in the Northern hemisphere, and as I mentioned in a recent post, that means it’s time for me to start spending more time out of the shop. I’d love to say all that time outdoors is devoted to hanging with the family; swimming in the […]
