Wood Shop Projects





Introduction: Wood Shop Projects

Here are just a few things I have made over the past 4 years in my woods class at school. A lot of the projects were made in under 2 hours. Unfortunately, our school uses very old machines that don't work so well so I spend most of my time on the lathe. Since its the end of school for me (graduation June 7th, 08) I have just been making whistles =]

There are about 8 or 9 other small projects that I gave out as gifts but I don't have pictures of those, sorry.

Also, most of the projects shown are made from wood I retrieved from the scrap box.

On the oak goblet with the natural finish, I think the wobble makes the whole piece more interesting, because it gives it a better than perfect, handmade look.

Wow, nicely done! I loved shop class when I was in school, I even went out and bought myself an old Powermatic Lathe, unfortunately I just don't find the time to turn anything any more. Keep up the good work!
