A lathe is not the only equipment used to make bowls. In this video a scroll saw is used to make a layered bowl. Extreme patience coupled with detailed layout and precise glue up is all you need. I’ve seen a few simple scroll saw bowls but never anything with this kind of design. Definitely a way to impress some people if you’ve got the patience and neck muscles for a scroll saw.

Here’s a great video covering a parsons style table with an interesting epoxy twist. Working with reclaimed lumber sure does add to the complexity of any project. Lots of problem solving and tips along the way.

Another one from Jonny explaining a colorful approach to a Shou Sugi Ban finish.

There’s a twist to this project. Puns aside, it looks great. Sometimes less is more. And the work needed to complete it looked pretty fun. No hand carving tools just a chainsaw and an angle grinder, followed by 2 part epoxy to fill the crack and holes.

When a mortise and tenon joint fit’s but the joint isn’t quite square from piece to piece try this. This video will show you how to correct it with a micro adjustment while still keeping a tight joint.

This one is an entry to the Rockler Plywood Challenge. Thomas builds a traditional Japanese tool-box using mostly hand tools. Instead of using plywood in its normal state for the shelves he took a much more labor intensive approach that results in a much more eye-catching look. Great work, Thomas!

A nice simple jig from Steve to add interest to your doors. I can see other applications for this. Different blocks or templates for different interior shapes.

This hummingbird kinetic sculpture is a fusion of woodworking and engineering in producing artwork. So many moving parts. So much room for error. If I had one of these I’d make everyone who visits take a hyper-lapse or a time-lapse cell phone video of it. I’d probably build a small cell phone stand just for it. Incredible work.
