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...

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.

Old Projects #7: Super Strong Bookcase

12-21-2020 09:20 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This was a bookcase that was to support heavy loads without sagging. The front of the shelves was trimmed with a piece of 1×2 that acts both as a decoration and a stiffener. The back shelf support is hidden. Each shelf has a tongue milled into the back edge. The back (1/4” ply) is made in consecutive pieces so the back looks like one piece but is really three. The tongue and the separate pieces form a stressed web structure to support the back side. End View of Shelf Support ...
