Table Saw Mobile Workstation #1: I love it when a plan comes together...

04-21-2008 11:00 PM by Greg Wurst | 21 comments »

Awhile back Wood Magazine had an article on building a mobile outfeed table that would fit over your table saw. Since I need all the space in my garage I can get, I went ahead and built one that would fit over my table saw to give me some much needed work space and a handy outfeed table. I thought this was pretty spiffy and a great use of space. As I always do I look at the latest project posts on Lumberjocks looking for inspiration for my next project. Whilst browsing I came ac...

Planning the Makeover #3: SketchUp Plans - Miter Saw & Router Mobile Workstation

02-19-2010 06:27 AM by Jeison | 14 comments »

I had some fun with this one, it still needs a bit of tweaking, need to add some details and adjust some dimensions, but I thought I’d throw it up to share until I have time to go back over it. I combined a pretty standard style Router cabinet from an issue of Wood magazine, with a Miter Saw cart from Fine Woodworking, and plopped them both onto a mobile base from another issue of Wood. The Miter Saw station has a flip up, extendable wing on the left side, and on the right side the ...

Building a MAME Arcade Cabinet

07-31-2008 03:42 AM by Greg Wurst | 36 comments »

MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) allows you to play old arcade games on your PC. While playing them with a keyboard and mouse is OK, to really get the experience you need an arcade cabinet. I could spend some time on just the PC setup, but I’m going to just concentrate on the cabinet construction here. I built this back in 2003 over the course of a week. If you’re interested in more info on MAME and where to get needed hardware you can check the project page here: ...

Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

10-19-2010 12:56 AM by zzzzdoc | 471 comments »

At the very start, let me give all the credit in the world to Tedth66, whose project this is totally based on, and who has been graciously providing guidance as I build this. This is a modification of his design, adding a few details, and making it work for my shop. I have a 2 car garage / workshop that is tremendously space challenged, so I need to be clever about every square inch. On top of that, I enjoy modifying designs and making them work custom for me. So when I saw Ted’s ...

Sketchup As A Woodworking Design Tool #1: Making Cabinet Doors With The Follow Me Tool

11-05-2007 07:04 AM by Brad_Nailor | 12 comments »

Hello everyone! Since I discovered Sketchup several years ago (I have been Skecthing since release 3..pre Google) I have spent a great deal of time watching tutorials and prowling through the forums trying to learn as much about this great software as I can! Since I have been a member here I have seen some great blogs by other members about Sketchup and how to use it, so I thought I would throw my hat in the ring! I see allot of people saying I wish I could use Sketchup better, or I gotta lea...

Entertainment Center #1: Built in Entertainment Center

01-18-2011 07:08 AM by Luke | 6 comments »

I took it upon myself to get back into woodworking by building an entertainment center in a TV nook that was in our house. Previously I had done some bookshelves from New Yankee Workshop and they came out nice, but this by far has been the biggest project. There are somethings that I like about it, but somethings were a learning process. I started the face frame by doing half-lap joints, with Thru-dowel pins holding it together. They came out nice, even though with paint you’d ne...

Virtual Pinball Machine #2: The Lower Cabinet Build

01-25-2012 08:39 PM by milbert | 4 comments »

The build of the virtual pinball machine is coming right around. The lower part of the machine is mostly done with the exception of some button and ventilation holes will need to be added. Here are some pictures of the assembly… The hardest part of this cabinet for me was the miter cuts where the sides meet the front. I did it this way for aesthetic purposes since the cabinet would have no trim I don’t want to see the plywood edges. Here is a picture of the final...

Hand Tools Cabinet #3: All aboard the Planes

02-17-2009 06:48 AM by PurpLev | 9 comments »

I saw this FWW Complete Illustrator Guide to Woodworking, and while I found most of the book to be mediocre (although a nice reference book when you’re starting woodworking) I did pick up a couple of cool ideas from it… then again, it might have been from a different book…lol so I finally mounted my (until now just laying there) hand planes in the cabinet. The shelves are shaped to the profile of each handplane for full support, the shelf has a small ‘step’ (1...

Pine Shaker Closet Dresser #3: Drawers, the "Fruit of the Loom", size matters

02-26-2012 08:44 PM by PaBull | 5 comments »

“Size matters on drawers” Time to get down to the drawers. It’s kinna like getting into the underwear (not in a dirty way) of the cabinet. Call it the “Fruit of the Loom?”.When making drawers, size matters, so I will work on getting every 1/8” I can (or mm for you, Europeans). The first step is making the face frame thin. Or in this case, no face frame, just 3/4” thick dividers. European style cabinets are a good way to do this, I just don’...

So my wife comes home....

02-14-2010 03:10 AM by clieb91 | 8 comments »

and says a friend has some cabinets that she needs to get rid of before she moves. 2 snowstorms later we are finally able to go pick them up. They were built by somebody they work with and built very sturdy. With some help I was able to load them both onto my truck and get them home. The problem was once they got home. After an attempt to get on of them upstairs to the sewing room. It was decided they were to large. So to the workshop for some tools. After about an hour or so. A...
