  1. Wine cabinet...I finally finish a Christmas present for my son & family...only a little bit late

    This took a while longer to finish than I anticipated. I learned that it's one thing to know how to do a procedure, I.E. hand cutting a blind dovetail, and quite another to do it in practice and get a project done on time. This had it all…all the fun kinds of joinery, dados, mortise & tenons...
  2. Mud Room Locker cabinet

    My wife found a similar picture on Pinterest and asked me to build one to help organize our backpacks, school lunch boxes, and gym bags.

  4. Girls Twin Bed

    I made this twin bed for a friends daughter. It is made out of 2×4's, birch ply and some wainscot ply. It was relatively inexpensive and easy to build. The hardest part of the project was finding decent 2×4s that could be planed down flat and straight. She found her initial at a hobby store...
  5. How to make a fluted pillar

  8. 12" Disc Sander Accessory for Lathe

    I just completed my 12" disc sander accessory for my lathe. It's nothing fancy but I think it's going to work really well. The basic design is borrowed from James Vavra's project. Thanks, James! I made one disc from melamine (particle board) and mounted it to a faceplate. For the other...

  10. Spinning Queen Ann Tilt Top Tea Table in Black Walnut

    I started by purchasing a 3' diameter black walnut log from the late great Simmie Again of Lambertville, NJ.

    I have a serious humidity problem in my 400 sq. ft. shop. Right now it's about 70-75% RH, and the whole place smells like mold and mildew, which can't be good for my health. I've gone thru a series of dehumidifiers from Home Depot, usually in the $200 range. These work OK, but they die within 2...
