Small Projects #42: Indoor Car Stereo

03-14-2021 03:22 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Have had this idea about building a home stereo (glorified AM/FM) out of a “one DIN” car stereo. Saw someone make a beautiful zebrawood case for an old Marantz receiver and got the bug to make a wooden stereo of my own. Continue reading for build details … I’ve got a beautiful piece of wenge that I’m going to use for the front and top. The plan was to use cherry for the ends but things change. The wenge is very dark and the cherry was to be a light contrast...

Small Projects #40: Easter Shrine

02-28-2021 03:31 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Friend of SWMBO is nice older lady who is quite devout. Thought this would make a nice gift for Easter. Bought a nice 9” tall statue of Jesus and wanted to put it in a fancy box suitable for table display. I just got the Fast-Joint Mini set up and dialed in. This was going to be a test of the jig. 9” H x 3” W x 2” D statuette with customized engraved plate. Easter colors are purple and yellow and it just so happens I just got some yellow heart and I inventory ...

Small Projects #39: Zebrawood wall clock with Valentines hearts joints

02-13-2021 02:51 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

SWMBO requested a new wall clock, “Honey can’t you make me a clock?” and the answer is “Yes. Dear.” (I’ve been married a lot of years.) As things worked out all the needed pieces arrived just in time for St. Valentines day. Got a nice shipment of wood in today, some wenge, yellow heart, walnut, cherry and zebrawood. Being well versed in how to try to help marital bliss, I told her to pick and zebrawood it is! This seemed like a great project to use t...

Small Projects #37: First Fast-Joint Mini - jig storage box.

02-07-2021 04:04 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

I got the Fast-Joint Mini jig (review HERE ) in and working the other day and thought what better first project than a storage box for all of the jigs bits and bobs? The complete, assembled jig consists of the following: Lots of oddly shaped bits. By stacking I was able to reduce the interior space required down to 8-1/4” L x 4-5/8” W x 4-1/8” H. With the sides 1/2” thick and the ends 3/4” the outside dimensions for the sides is 9-3/4” and 5-5/8”...

Old Projects #16: Self Centering Bits Storage Box

01-30-2021 11:41 PM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Got a set of self centering pilot drills in the other day. They were a good value but just came in a blister pack. Rather than let them rattle around and get damaged / dull / lost I decided to make a little 1-1/2” x 2-3/4” x 5” box to store them in. In my shop about all we discard is sawdust! I gathered some walnut and cherry scraps and came up with this: Nothing like a quick little project to give me a sawdust fix for the day. - – - – - – - – - - ...

Hello Metamorphosis of my workshop. Today we are making a secret door to the second workshop. The door is invisible against the whole wall made of old boards.

Small Projects #35: Bill Press

01-10-2021 10:12 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

SWMBO ask for place to keep monies flat and orderly ahead of bank day. Had a chunk of purpleheart kicking around and made this box. Purpleheart cash keeper The box is 1/4” stock except for the weight which is full 15/16”. The full width stock was sanded to make the finger curve so both sides would be exact copies after resawing. I have about a 5/32” thick center cut with an odd semicircle cutout. The half moon grip was cut from a piece of scrap mahogany using my pla...

Small Projects #32: Lexan Lidded Smaller Drawer

10-21-2020 07:17 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Smaller drawers are handy, but they can be dust collectors. Here in Florida there is no end of small critters that would find a dark seldom used drawer as a good home. I have several cases holding several drawers the get carried around – not always right side up. To solve all of the above I’ve built a set of lidded drawers. I built two each of three sizes and added internal lexan dividers on the smallest for added storage variants. The drawer is essentially sealed with...
