  1. DO NOT BURN

    Well, I can give a joke, I can take a joke, and I can poke fun at myself, too. This isn't a hugely creative project, but a fun one that tells a tale on me! I went to visit my daughter and her family (Monte & 3 Grandkids, too) up in Indiana in May - a long way from VA - too far! My Son-In-Law...

  3. Shelving Unit with Storage Bench

    I am in a big reorganization mode in the shop for the past few weeks and I decided to take down an old wall cabinet and put a shelving unit in there instead.. you can see what it looked like before below After deciding on what I want to achieve I set out some very basic plans and built the...
  4. Outdoor/Indoor Plant Stand

    One of my daughters sent me a picture of a plant stand early this Spring and said "Can you make this for me"? She had found it on Amazon. As you can see it's pretty straight forward, made of 2×4's, planed and cut to size, 14" wide, about 48" long. Put together with deck screws. The problem is I...
  5. Basement Workshop Shelving

    I recently started school for horology and upon arriving there I found that our basement workshop was a mess. Being the organized person that I am and having built things like this in the past I set to work designing shelves to hold the clock pieces that we are working on. Before the new...
  6. 8-Bit Final Fantasy Pixel Art

    I made a small dent in my scrap wood pile by making this 8-Bit Final Fantasy Black Mage from scrap 2×4s. I love making wooden pixel art and this was my first time creating something with this textured look. I was largely inspired by abstract art pieces I saw on Pinterest. I documented the...
  7. Giant Jenga Yard Game

    Hi All Lumberjocks, I decided with Summer just around the corner I wanted to add to my expanding yard game collection by making this Giant Jenga set. My son has loved playing the small version of this game over the winter period and when we played with it last year on Summer vacation I made a...
  8. DIY Compost Bin - Video!

    Video here: I build this compost bin to utilize the spring dead grass and fallen leaves. I pick these up with my lawn sweeper and my golf cart. Previously, these items would go into a trash bag and be thrown away. As my wife and I were getting a bit more into gardening, I thought it would be a...
  9. A Scrap Wood Flag

    I had a bunch of warped and bowed 2×4s just hanging around so I made this simple flag. :) Hope everybody has a safe and happy 4th! Build Video Written Tutorial
  10. Radial Arm Saw Upgrades and Work Station

    Currently in my shop I am limited on my number of larger tools. I have a miter saw that I have been using for all of my cross-cuts and a circular saw for ripping down sheet goods. However, after watching many videos on Youtube of the capabilities of a radial arm saw, and hearing Jay Bates say he...
  11. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I remember years ago, I read that box store 3/4" plywood was not actually 3/4" or 0.750", but more 45/64th or 18mil 0.703". I use SketchUp to create things just to see what the end result kinda looks like. For some mystical old man reason, I've been inputting 3/4" and not 45/64th and noticed...

    HUGE Eucalyptus score Sheesh. Good thing I have a truck now. I saw a note on craigslist today (online classifieds) that a guy had put "10 to 15 more" eucalyptus logs out in the alleyway behind his house. LA is all blocks split in half by access alleys big enough to drive 2 cars through...

    box frames, wheels, and a height change In early December, a little more than a week before I flew home, I decided to make mom a cutting board. However, the garage was a mess. I spent some time figuring out what I could attack, cleaning off the back table to use for flattening the board after...

    Workbench 101 Over the past several years I have been needing and wanting to buy or maybe just make a workbench. I have gone to five woodworking shows in three states over the past two years. At these shows and in several magazines or catalogs I have noticed many of these really nice...

    My new work bench When my darling wife allowed me to use our family room as my wood shop I needed to make a bench. living on a fixed income causes me to be very creative in acquiring tools and materials. I have posted about Freecycle before so I won't rehash that again unless anyone has any...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Just saw a CL posting for a small delta jointer. It has a variable speed knob on it. Don't think I ever saw this as a feature before. When would you ever get better performance from a jointer at a lower speed?
