Knot Hole 1 by James

Thought I’d pass along a link to a video I did for  some accidental art I was a part of. I was building a maple guitar neck and working around a knot hole that eventually took over my time for a few days and became the KH1 (knot hole 1…… creatively cheesy, eh?). The video format was done in response to a challenge by a friend of mine who is a video art teacher, he’s mentoring me as I am not a movie guy by any means.

Kitchen Island by Ben

The frame is dimensional lumber, glued and pegged  together, with half blind pockets for the frame rails to seat into. The top is Maple plywood wrapped with Aspen. Everything is finished with Danish Oil and the top has two coats of lacquer.

Pencil Holder by Philipp

My name is Philipp and I am a 18 year old woodworker from Germany. Some weeks ago a made a small video from my project and i just was so happy with how this turned out although my Box-joint Jig was not that accurate at this moment.  Know I finished the jig and it is super accurate 🙂  This pencil holder was just a small test of what I can do.

Dovetailed Keepsake Box by Brian

My first project with hand cut dovetails. Walnut and maple keepsake box. Nothing special, just a fun exercise in hand cut joinery.
