Small Projects #48: Jatoba Strong Box (almost there ...)

06-14-2021 05:25 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Friend asked me to build a cash box. Something small enough to fit under a bed but still capable of holding significant amounts of cash in a neat and orderly fashion. Strong boxes have a long history. They are often metal banded and reinforced and are designed to resist attack. Being wood, fire can breach the structure. However, being a paper money storage strong box, fire will destroy the contents, defeating the purpose. I tried to think of every potential attack, sawing, smashing, pry...

Build a Keyboard Tray, Office Organization Solutions, Zoom Video Conference Setup Tips

02-13-2021 07:56 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I packed a lot into the video I just published today about office organization. I made a keyboard tray and shared some woodworking tips to help viewers learn about woodworking. This keyboard tray really frees up a lot of desk space. I also mounted my monitor and laptop on a stand to free up more space and get my video camera set at the right height for Zoom calls. I included some tips on how to setup your video and lighting for Zoom calls as well. I hope you find this useful and I ask th...

Old Projects #12: Build a Tile Topped End Table Tutorial

12-22-2020 01:08 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

I made several variants of this table, all with the same tiles. If you think the oak prototype is nice you should see it in jatoba (I’m still looking for more pics) Oh yeah, its been 20 years since this original build post and that table is still going strong. One of the bottom slats got trod upon years ago but otherwise it is holding up well. Its been used so much that the pattern on the edges of the tiles has begun to wear off. It’s had no end of spills and slop on it with li...

This is a four foot diameter folding top game table. Table in Up Position The top is red oak, while the base is white ash. The popsicle base is half lapped with bandsawed bun feet. Table in Down Position The hard part was the pivot mechanism without any metal parts. A piece of closet rod acts as the pivot with a dowel acting as the locking pin. Sold it in a consignment shop for $600.

Old Projects #6: Slant Top Desk

12-21-2020 08:34 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This is a desk I built. The legs are store bought and biscuited into the frame. The trim on top prevents things from falling off and adds a nice visua; touhc. The open slots are big enough to hold 8-1/2” x 11” sheets. Its built from cheap pine stained with … some dark color stain. Slant top opens with piano hinge. Top detail shows pencil groove. Apron bead is sorta my style mark. I put it on lots of projects just because. Picture stand to left is another pr...
