KingPost TimberWorks

A bathtub made from wood, cedar to be specific. No fancy joinery just epoxy. Not only does it look great in the final shape he chose but I can definitely see someone taking it a step further and making one that looks like an old viking boat or something similar :) What a fun project.

Templeboy Turnings

The volume is a little low on this one so you will have to turn it up. Woodturning a cube inside a cube. It’s an interesting project to get some practice time on the lathe. GREAT wood selection for this one. It looks amazing.

This wooden “seashell” from Steve Garrison is a creative way to bring the beach home with you without getting sand in your shorts. His unique jig for creating wedges on the table saw is both efficient and functional.

This walnut chair from Anne of All Trades combines rustic elements with elegant lines that can really warm up a dining space. Great look at the entire process as well.

Carl Jacobson

Woodturning is for the birds, or penguins in this case. Carl Jacobson never disappoints when he steps up to the lathe, and this featured “off-center turning” is no exception. Smile and wave! :) <—Get it?

Katz-Moses Woodworking Shop

This video in Katz-Moses Woodworking Shop’s series for joint of the week is a 3 way locking miter (Kane Tsugi) and features an interesting method of joinery, if a little complicated.

  1. The Katz-Moses video is the best use of marking gage that I have seen. I intend to dig mine out of the drawer and use it instead of the electronic widgets for a while.
    Don’t have a Japanese saw yet, so duplicating the fancy joint must come later.

    The bath tub builder might have an easier time in future projects with epoxy if he buys from West Systems or people who supply boat shops. There are neat additives like Cab-o-Sil to make epoxies non dribbling and specialty fillers as well.
