Small Projects #53: Walnut Air Filter Stand

08-25-2021 02:01 AM by Madmark2 | 7 comments »

We have pets and with pets comes pet dander and allergies. We bought a Grizzly G0738 two stage (5um & 1um) filter. Grizzly G0738 two stage, three speed air filter w/ remote. It really makes a difference but it’s not the most attractive box in the bedroom. It’s been sitting on a faux walnut MDF stand that’s falling apart. I decided, and SWMBO agreed, that something better was needed. Completed top is gorgeous! I came up with a design for a real walnut (& ...

Small Projects #51: Lacewood Box with Brazilian Rosewood Tray

08-01-2021 03:36 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

SWMBO had a friend visiting us in Fla from TGWN (The Great White North) and I made this box. SWMBO put the final finish on it. Ready to ship. Waiting on final finished coat of poly. The box is from a 15/16” x 5” x 18” piece of S2S lace wood. The tray is from a 13/16” x 2” x 24” piece of Brazilian rosewood with a big worm trail about 6” from one end. There were only two pieces of scrap from the lace wood, both from trimming the bottom to...

Small Projects #50: Perfect Mitered Cube Crystal Display Case

07-19-2021 03:00 AM by Madmark2 | 12 comments »

SWMBO is a Yankees fan and for Valentines day I got her a Waterford crystal baseball engraved with the Yankees logo. It’s about 2-1/2” dia and leaded crystal. Waterford Crystal Baseball. There was a thread here recently about how to build a cubical bin. The OP already had a joinery method in mind but I suggested a mitered panel box. This box is made from 12 identical pieces all cut on the TS. Each piece needs to have a 3/32” dado in two sides for the lexan panel ins...

Small Projects #36: Caliper Storage box

01-26-2021 12:23 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Have a nice 8” digital caliper for 8 or so years. After much use the plastic clamshell case’s hinge started to fail and the case was cracking after a drop or two (oopsies). With nothing much else on my plate while waiting on router toys, I built this little replacement case for my caliper. Caliper Storage box Lid lock requires thin kerf blade for .093” lexan. The box is 12-1/2” x 4-3/8” x 1-1/2” with a 1” interior clearance. I used a ni...

Small Projects #34: Cat Can Corral

01-08-2021 11:36 PM by Madmark2 | 4 comments »

The better half asked for a corral for the cat food cans on the kitchen counter. The design was to be as simple as possible and leave no hiding spots for any potential miniature livestock. Because of the size of the cans the corner support space was limited. To maximize both internal space and strength the side slats are dado’d into the 45° corner posts instead of overlaying as in a normal crate. The carton the cans come in is 7”x14” and allows 1-7/8” vertical space...

Drill Press Cabinet Build #1: Main Cabinet Dovetails and Stopped Dado

11-20-2020 12:37 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

In this video I’m working through some knots to create dovetails and stopped dadoes. I chose to use some scrap plywood I had on hand to not waste good lumber. I may go back eventually and make a good looking cabinet from hardwood, but not sure if that is worth the money for shop storage. Do you guys spend decent money to have good a nice looking shop? Check out the build so far here.

Crib for Granddaughter #2: Ship Lap Day

10-24-2020 09:53 PM by GrumpyCub | 4 comments »

Well today was all about ship lap.The first step to adding the ship lap to the headboard is to cut a dado into each of the headboard legs. The dado will not go all the way to the bottom so we have to create a stopped dado. I used my table saw to cut the dados, but as you can see, the curve of the table saw blade does not leave a clean, square stop to the dado. In the past I have used a chisel to square up the end of a stopped dado, and I did that here to remove the bulk of the w...

Small Projects #31: Rolling Printer Stand

05-08-2020 05:06 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Most of the “stands” I create are simple 2X4 & ply creations and this is no exception. However this is one is for our home office and needed to be a little less Spartan. Its the exact height of the computer table – and rolls! The printer is an hp all-in-one with scanner and such. Because of this it needs a minimum 18” height when the scan lid is open. I mad the shelf 20” to give some clearance. The raw 2×4s were planed down to 1-1/4 to remove th...

Dado Jig for the Router

07-20-2019 02:38 PM by Rich | 3 comments »

I built one of these a couple of years back and unfortunately didn’t make it long enough for 24” panels. It was based on this one. While it did the job exactly as it should, I never liked the fact that the knobs to adjust it were underneath. It required the jig and the board both to be elevated when you cut the dado. I need to route dadoes for shelves in the sides of an upright pantry for a client. The sides are 90” tall, so wrestling them over a dado set on my saw is...
