    Turned pens : Tjbaum
    As far as I know Ryobi does not make a lathe, there are several good ones on the market and pens are a great intro into turning.

    • That's a great-looking table, @Tjbaum! Beautiful dual-purpose design - love those tapered legs too.

    • were you able to do this with a Ryobi lathe?  I have been toying with the idea of working on pens recently.

    New kitchen island : Tjbaum
    We did but it was two levels. We also won the pipe challenge way back for the chairs.

    Butternut Dining Table : Tjbaum
    I kind of have an amazing hookup with a retired guy that has a big slabber bandsaw and a logger friend and likes to mill wood so I get amazing slabs at ridiculously low prices... today I picked up seven 19" wide black locust slabs and three more 33" wide butternut slabs.

    • Absolutely beautiful! We just love that hairpin legs and that grain!!

    • Love the beautiful wood.  Your use of butterflies sets it off.  Great work!  You just had Butternut slabs laying around in your shop?  Seriously that's awesome.  I'm throughly jealous.

    Walnut Dining Table and Coffee Table : Tjbaum
    A fellow maker friend helped me put with the legs and we fabricated them locally specifically for the dimensions of this table. If your close to stl we could probably help you out. I would also highly recommend rubio monocoat 2c for hardwood finishing, its amazing stuff.

    Walnut Dining Table and Coffee Table : Tjbaum
    Thanks, this table is one of my favorites we've done so far and I cant wait to do the next with the other two slabs from this log. I think we are going to go with copper colored legs and epoxy.

    • Wow! These look fantastic.  Each of the style pieces you chose look great together.  The table leg design is super cool.

    • We're diggin' those legs!
      By RYOBI NATION, on July 5, 2018

    • The dinning table looks amazing.  No that the coffee table doesn't but I love the bow ties.  I have a couple boards that I have been saying I'm gonna do something with for too long now.  Mine are maple but I love your walnut.  Also, really like the legs.  Did you buy them locally or on-line?  I saw ones on Amazon that I was thinking of getting.

    Wooden Comb Experiment : Tjbaum
    Yes I made a box joint jig for the table saw and created a first cut template. I got an old 1x42" sander to sand between the teeth and shape the points. I used the ryobi benchtop sander to shape the curves.

    • They're awesome! Almost too beautiful to use! 
      By RYOBI NATION, on June 5, 2018

    • These are absolutely top quality! These would be perfect to use up some of my scrap hardwoods. I assume you used a box joint jig for table saw? But did you just sand in the points by hand?

    Circle Farmhouse Table : Tjbaum
    Thanks! It was not our first table, we've done a few dozen by now. It was our first round dining table, before this we had only done smaller round tables.

    Oak Barnwood Truss Table Sets : Tjbaum
    I really enjoyed seeing the oak transform from what looked like wood destined for a burn pile to beautiful tabletops. Most of all I enjoyed seeing the excitement and smiles when we delivered them to their new home.

    Walnut Live Edge Table Set : Tjbaum
    I really enjoyed cutting and putting in the butterflies, but my favorite was right at the end, spreading the oil on and seeing the walnut transform.
