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 ...

12-21-2020 08:34 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This is a desk I built. The legs are store bought and biscuited into the frame. The trim on top prevents things from falling off and adds a nice visua; touhc. The open slots are big enough to hold 8-1/2” x 11” sheets. Its built from cheap pine stained with … some dark color stain. Slant top opens with piano hinge. Top detail shows pencil groove. Apron bead is sorta my style mark. I put it on lots of projects just because. Picture stand to left is another pr...

My ex got it in the divorce. The brass ornaments at the top of the legs cover a botched slot. This is joined with biscuits. Notice the odd leg design. I was trying for something different. Entry hall table The picture doesn’t do it justice. Detail showing sunburst riser

Shop stuff #200: Part 10 of the potato bin series...finally

12-05-2020 12:28 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Yes, I actually took the time to get back at editing and putting together a video. It is not my best performing series, but this episode uses some pretty special wood that really makes the unit pop! Thanks for tuning in and commenting. Oh, and I’ve given up on how to figure out how to embed video. Lumberjocks just seems to want to make it impossible.

Small Projects #33: Metric Box - It's full of METERS!

11-19-2020 01:57 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Just got a couple of toys for myself as a belated b’day gift. An outlet tester and an induction probe to go along with my DVM. One of my complaints about DVM’s is that the leads seldom store neatly. As electrical tools in a wood shop the things collect lots of dust and debris. I came up with this four compartment lexan lidded box: It’s a metric box ‘cause its full of meters! I used 30” of oak 1×6 resawn on the TS to 5/16” and planed down to...

Planer Sled/Ramp/Slide(r)

11-08-2020 08:12 PM by whope | 6 comments »

I often get boards that are wider than my 8” joiner. The planer sled that I made a few years ago is heavy and unwieldily for just one person. So I made a jig with Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene and 3/4 plywood for my planer. It’s 8” wide to match the joiner. As long as the board is under 12”, this jig works well. Video on building and using is at:
