Project Build Videos #1: Cherry Whiskey Cabinet

06-12-2020 02:41 AM by Eric | 0 comments »

This is a whiskey cabinet that I built out of cherry and pine. I got the inspiration for the design of this cabinet from the late James Krenov; who in my opinion is one of the best. Its the first dovetail project that I built and I’m pretty happy with the way it came out. I documented the build and created a video on youtube; so if you would like to check it out here is the link below. I hope you enjoy the video, and feel free to ask any questions, or make suggestions for other videos. ...

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...

Small Projects #30: Oak Tablet Case

05-04-2020 12:27 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

I made this last summer when I got the new Galaxy Tab. Up to now I hadn’t thought of taking a picture of itself in the mirror. Infinity mirror. The case is 1/2” oak and is 1-1/8” thick. 1/2” back, 3/8” dado and 1/4” lip. Each dado is 1/4” deep and have a couple of felt pads as shock absorbers. The fit is snug and the tablet doesn’t move in any way. The back is drilled and countersunk for the tablets camera. Countersink gets rid ...

Building a Custom Shelf To Display a train

04-26-2020 05:53 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

These floating shelves were a fun build. The client wanted to have one of the shelves equipped with a custom train tunnel for his 1950’s era model train.The overall shape of the design was inspired by part submarine, part star wars ship, made from walnut.⁠Train tunnel goes all the way through both upright supports. Trimmed it will a little walnut trim to kind of act like a row of bricks. This Maybe reminiscent of my childhood watching Mr Rogers trolley in the neighborhood of make believe. ...

Small Projects #28: Dual Bowl Twin Screw II

04-24-2020 08:20 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

The prototype being successful I made five more pipes, one with a special dual bowl design. Five pipes, one with a secret surprise! Starting with a board we progress to functioning pipe blanks. Lovely purpleheart is a full 1” thick The purpleheart was ripped at 3/4” and then recut to 3/4” leaving a 5/32” offcut with a TK blade. The 24” piece was cut at 3-7/8” and yielded six pipe blocks with about 1/4” left over. Talk about 100% yield! ...

Small Projects #27: Twin Screw Lidded Purpleheart Pipe Design

04-24-2020 01:37 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

My head shop customer asked me for some smaller lidded pipes. The pipes suffer from ng the same issue as most dugouts, the screw works loose, the lid opens and the (usually expensive) contents spills. The solution to this is the same as for the dugouts, twin screws. One acts as a pivot, the other a locking pin. Until the locking screw is removed the lid cannot open. Here is a collage of my latest prototype: Twin screws for no leaks On the original lid design the lid and body need ...

Its saw burned and 5-3/4” square and thickness varies all over the place around .200”.The middle slice of a double sided resaw. Lemme see if I’m I can make anything useful out of this I think, and so a project began.2-13/16” square and half of that high. Cut the big square into four smaller squares. Then ripped ...

Small Projects #24: Purpleheart "no leaks" Dugout

04-06-2020 05:43 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

My smoke shop client commissioned some “non swivel” dugouts last week. The problem, she explained, was that the tops come loose and they spill their contents. I made some sliding top dugouts that seemed to work well but the sliders also work loose and may spill (albeit less often). Turning my engineering brain loose on the need I came up with a solution, the two screw top. One screw acts as a pivot, the other is removable as a lock.Who knows what lurks inside? The top is...

Been burning thru my purpleheart inventory making pipes. So I just ordered more from Craftsmen Supply in Ybor City (Tampa) Fl. They have a great selection of exotics and are good folx to deal with. One of the pieces was calling to me to make a box out of it.
