Simple radiator covers made out of off the shelf 4/4 pine from HD for a friends home. First experience using pocket holes and I’m very impressed with the ease of use. Might not be the preferred woodworkers method but it sure saves a lot of time, especially for projects that aren’t necessarily furniture quality. Sure makes those nasty radiators look better.

Very Nice. Pocket holes are not my favorite but they do work well and quick. I still have a pocket hole jig though.

They look great.

I like these very much. Nice work. My wife seen these and wants me to use the design for a window seat. I may have to give it a try. I too am a fan of the kreg jig. Very handy for a lot of projects but many times I leave my kreg alone so I can learn new joinery. I have a coffee table built in the early 1960’s and reconditioned by my Mom in the late 70’s. Under it I found pocket holes so this joinery has been around for some time. Thanks for sharing!

Nicely done. That’s furniture for the radiators.

Holy crap Tom, I didn’t know we were blessed with being in the company of the Rockefellers. Is that a Shopsmith in the pic – as well as your Delta? And I must say that I never knew anyone before that had their own private soccer field in their backyard.

Pretty work Tom

Thanks Terry, yup that’s a Shopsmith alright. I’ve had it for over 30 years and its pretty much been my entire workshop until I got the Delta. Love the tool but the TS operation has always been a limitation so after reading some good reviews about the Delta (can’t remember who wrote them – haha), I decided it was time to pull the trigger and purchase it. Yard isn’t exactly a soccer field but it sure feels like it when its time to do the mowing
