live edge oak coffee table: I came across an oak log and cut it into slabs with the help of my brother-in-law and his Alaska Mill chainsaw slab cutter. I think it has a very primitive feel to it

Cigarette box 2.0: My old cigarette box has been dropped, dunked and sprayed in salt water, left out in the rain, snow and summer sun. It was used and abused. A well loved piece of functional art that I carried with me literally everywhere I went for the past 18 months. But it is showing it’s age, and has fallen apart and been repaired on several occasions. I decided it’s time to retire the old girl. She will forevermore sit on a shelf in a place of pride and live out her retirement in relative glory. So for the new box, some valuable lessons were learned from the old and applied here. 1) gorilla glue (polyurethane) is amazing and super durable. The mitres on the old girl held up amazingly. 2) wood movement is a serious issue. These super thin sides (1/8" thick) simply do not provide enough edge surface to hold together. This time, I used single piece panels instead of the glued together panels. So no racing stripes. :-( 3) to make sure the mitres don’t come apart, I added key splines. I think the keys are the key to ultimate durability. Even though I didn’t really have issues with the mitres, this will really protect it against seasonal movement (or the occasional sea spray while fishing). The old box is in the last picture. She’ll be in use for the next couple of weeks until the finish gasses out completely (I don’t like to smoke Danish oil). I think the new one should be pretty much as durable as can be and maintenance free for a very long time.

Oak dining table with benches: the table is a trestle style made from oak that extends from 6’6" long to 9’6" and it is 51" wide. the two benches were made from the table of an old dining set by cutting the top in half and reworking it with some of the old embellishments of the table.

Tablesaw Accessories Cart: I just joined this forum and this is my first post , I love some of the work and projects that are on display on this site, I think I found another site that can provide more inspiration. Thanks for having me Ed I have been working on my workshop to-do list for a while and next on my list was a Table saw Accessories cart, something that I can place directly under the right side of my table saw so as that I didn’t have to keep walking out of my way every time I needed to use an accessory for the saw, ie Dado stack, push stick or a million other tools I use with this machine.

Use of wine box = Free wood.: I have found a new source for free wood. Your local grocery store. The wine department has many of these boxes.that they throw away. If you don’t mind the logos, which i do not, then you can make some fun stuff. Different anyway. Here I made a mail organizer. —Madts.

Dogwood Pen: So a co-worker of mine has a dogwood tree that her daughter really likes. She asked me to make a box with a picture of dogwood blooms on it. Inside the box she wanted me to put a pen made out of the tree. She brought me a limb from the tree and it had a knot from an old branch. I believe this is the prettiest pen I’ve made to date!
