  1. 2x4 3x5 Box 1 Post Contest

    This is Post Contest 2×4 3×5 Box 1 of 2 Finished with Mineral Oil, and Deft spray can Lacquer Gloss. The center divider was removed because it's not going to be used for 3×5 cards. This is for my wife, Deanne, who likes Unicorns. I placed a Unicorn on the Top… then Wood Burned it.
  2. Recycle Bin

    Along similar lines as my Beer Koozie Box, this project was to replace the unsightly white plastic trash can in our kitchen used to hold the recycling. Quick project but definitely looks better and not to mention holds a lot more recycling items. The construction was out of D/Fur 2×4 from, my...
  3. Bench for the Conservation Club

    Had some spare 2X4's & 2X6's, so I decided to build a bench for our Conservation Club. Turned out fairly good. It is very comfortable. Put it in the club house and now they want them in all the shooting bays. Going to have to step up to some better wood.
  4. 2x4 3x5 Box 2 Post Contest

    This is Post Stumpy 2×4 Contest Box 2 from a 2×4x8' stud The Stumpy contest ended about a month ago… this box was short by about 3 hours of meeting the contest deadline. Finishing: BLO, Garnet dewaxed shellac, Deft spray can Lacquer Gloss… I will use this box for 3×5 cards & other misc...
  5. Shoe Shelf

    Shoe shelf I made for my wife for her birthday. The concept, I think, was sound. The implementation, not so much. Was on a tight budget for materials, and the thing had to fit into a very narrow space. It's made from re-sawn 2/4's in a sort of "crate" style. The shelves are adjustable using...
  6. End Table

    My wife found this site that had a copy of a Pottery Barn table. They want $200 for the crazy thing, so I built it out SYP 2×4's for like $30 bucks. I used a chisel and bag of screws to distress the top. Used a little Dark Walnut stain and there you have it.
  7. drums set

    My drums were at a building at which I could only practice 2 times a week. There was a show coming up (3 man drum off) I needed to practice so I designed and built a drumset. At first I was just going to use old heads and just throw it together to have something to hit. Im happy with it's tone...
  8. workbench from construction lumber

    I got started with hand tools after getting my grandfather's stanley #5 and #6, but lightweight workbench were not up to the job. I used construction lumber to save money on my first try. Laminated 2×4's make up the two top sections, which came out roughly 12"x3.5"x6'. I used a power planner for...
  9. How about a game?

    No idea what is up with the pics. Tried several things to get them the proper orientation. But besides that, last weekend was our annual cul-de-sac party and I have been wanting to make an oversized jenga game for a while now. Seemed like the perfect time. Started out with 8 of the straightest...
  10. Kayak rack

    After having our two kayaks stacked on top of some tubs in the basement for a year, I decided I should build a rolling kayak rack. I figured it would let me get them up out of the way, plus it would let me roll them out to the car instead of toting them in and out of the garage. I also hoped to...
  11. Quick crayon holder....boat

    So I hit a wall with trying to figure out how to make something in the shop the other day. And I needed something easy to have fun with. I had made these crayon trucks as gifts before (like the blue one pictured), but had some wishes with them. One- that it could hold more crayons, Two- that...
  12. some more carvings

    a bison carving relief carving in white pine, finished dimension is 5 1/2"x 7" the other one is a tea light holder made of a fir 2×4, the first useful carving project ive done, besides spoons. Thanks for looking Mark
  13. Tablesaw Stand for Vintage Craftsman Saw

    This saw lives at my dad's ranch now, but when it was in my shop, I couldn't have a stationary saw. I work in a 2-car garage, but my wife needs a place to park when I'm not working. So I made a mobile stand. This is it. (Except the second photo. That's a "before" picture.) I made it out of...
  14. Shaker Lap Desk

    This is Christian Becksvoort's lap desk that was in Fine Woodworking a year or two ago. I built it from a pine 2×4 and a 2×6. The breadboards are cherry and the pins and knob or walnut. Everything was done by hand with the exception of a drill pressed used to waste out the 3/16" x 16" mortise on...
  15. Constructions vehicles

    This has been on my mind for months now. Ever since I saw a fellow LJ's post on the bulldozer. I have been making these smaller version of my 2×4 cars for Christmas gifts (I'll post after Saturday), and REALLY wanted to try one. I am very infatuated with this size of car, and my head is...
  16. Corn Hole Boards

    I made these boards out of some crappy looking ply wood. But I used some beautiful 2×4's. Simply put, I did good on them and they're a lot better than my friend's. His are crappy.
  17. Pallet wood end table

    Just a quickie end table-rough around the edges but functional. This was my first project using loose mortise and tenon joinery. Top is cherry pallet slats lightly skip planed with a #5 jack plane to knock off some of the highest points and add contrast. The border is ash, also from pallets...
  18. Reclaimed Old Growth 2x4 & Copper Pipe Waterfall Table

    My take on the classic waterfall table is made from reclaimed, old growth 2×4s (from Rebuilding Exchange in Chicago) and from commercial grade copper pipe. The 2×4s used in the table are probably more than 100 years old (as are a few of the nails that are still embedded). This piece functions as...
  19. Make A Horse Themed Bench

    You can make this horse themed bench in a weekend. It is based on the frame from my previous 2x4 bench but with an added horse theme. I have a full plan as well for anyone who is interested. The link to that is in the YouTube description. Happy new year folks!
  20. Lathe Table

    Somehow over the past couple months I've ended up with as many mini lathes. Not that I'm complaining at all, but they needed a place to live. I'd rather rapidly taken over the entire table top in guy pal's garage. Given that my tools and I will be moving to our own garage in a few months, I...
