Dealing with a blank wall #1: A plan is needed..

02-07-2021 03:25 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Just put in a brand new toilet in the bathroom…..and still need some sort of storage spaces….there is the wall right behind the new “pot”..... Yeah, I don’t like that green paint, either….anyway….I thought about hanging a cabinet above the pot….like where those red lines are. I’d have to leave access to that light switch….and the corner is… Not the best place….however…I could leave a little space between the...

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”...

Box for a Combo Plane #3: Feeling groovy

01-31-2021 02:51 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Have 2 combo planes…might as well use both of them…. Had to get the Nickel Plated one out of it’s case… It got set up with a #12, 1/4” straight cutter, the Type 3 plane was set up with a 1/2” wide cutter. Once the grooves for the bottom panel were milled…I could cut the 1/4” plywood panel to size..roughly….and cut the 1/2” wide by 1/4” deep dado….while dry fitting the panel, found it to be 1/8” too long...

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. - – - – - – - – - - ...

Old Projects #15: Bathroom Medicine Chest

01-26-2021 11:57 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

One of life’s little peeves is fumbling in the dark for an aspirin or other item at night in the bathroom. This medicine chest is split into his & hers sections, each with an automatic LED lamp and clear shelves to keep you from brushing with Brylcreme! His & Hers lighted medicine chest. 1/2” × 3-1/2” S4S oak was used from the local (over priced) big box store. Each door was made with a captive metal insert. I chose this pattern & color, but many variations are a...

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...

Table saw trunnion check

01-25-2021 03:43 PM by Doug | 5 comments »

Hello everyone, I pray that you are doing well and staying healthy. The other day I decide to check the trunnion of my table saw. Like many of you, I have an old Craftsman 10” TS. I bought this saw in the summer of 2019. After buying it I did all the usual cleaning and inspection stuff including checking the TS blade alignment. At the time I adjusted the trunnion as best I could. Well, now it’s time to see if it’s moved. The first thing to do was get things set up. ...

Secret Door

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. To open the door, simply turn the plane clockwise. The whole wall has its own atmosphere and looks very nice. Watch the full video tutorial:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGxXnATCbWU&feature=youtu.be Thanks for looking.-BIY

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 #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...
