  1. Trio of Bandsaw Boxes

    I threw these together a few weeks ago using some scrap lumber and plywood I had lying around the shop. The focus was to create some different shapes and play around with the bandsaw. Tung oil and paste wax was used for the finish.
  2. Built-In Dresser Drawers

    Made a built-in dresser for my daughters room. Just a big plywood box leveled on the ground and screwed into the wall with drawers. Used slides and put some painted drawer fronts on it. Made the gray counter out of 3/4" baltic birch plywood. Attached a lip on the front to make it look chunkier...
  3. Mesquite Bowl with Walnut and Cherry Stripe

    Chatoyance from across the room, as Douglass would say. I so love the grain of the mesquite on this small bowl - for mise-en-place, or a little (very little) ice-cream. Measures 1" deep, by a hair over 2 across. I think I'm going to make more of these small bowls for the kitchen, in increasing...
  4. Custom Hardwood iPhone 4 Back Panel

    I went looking for a wooden back panel for my iPhone and was shocked to see the two companies selling them were charging $90-130. So, I decided I could easily make the same (maybe even better) for much less. Here are a couple of prototypes I've made so far. They are both walnut, and the second...
  5. Barnwood Mirror Frame

    Just a simple wall slat from an old barn in Ramona, Ca. I ripped it into strips and 45'd them. The mirror is from an old drawer-top mirror I salvaged from a clean out job I worked a few months back. Just a simple project that took all of 3 hrs.
  6. Federal Period Card Table

    For a challenge I decided to make a Federal Period card table. This has been my most challenging and intricate piece to date. My favorite part of the piece is the eagle inlays. There were many firsts for me in this project including my first attempt at marquetry, inlay, veneering, wood...
  7. Bedside Table Set

    I just completed the second table for my bedside table set. I decided to alter the first design slightly and add a raised panel cabinet door with knife hinges. I used Honduran Mahogany, Crotch Mahogany for the sides, and figured African Mahogany for the drawer. This is my first project using...

    Built-in bookcase in old upstate NY farm house.

    I see a lot of talk here on router and TS setups. My shop cuts to very tight standards on every cut. I don't measure errors in 1/32" range, more like +-.005". Here are some pictures of some very precise scraps. Can you cut two pieces this tight after resetting between cuts? When I say 6" I...

    I set up the fence system and zeroed out the fence to the blade. I made some cuts at under 10" and they came out dead on. But when I made a cut at 18" on the metal ruler it wouldn't center right on the mark like it was doing at the lower numbers. The cut came out way off. So I set it back to...

    Hi Guys, i'm new to this forum, for posting at least. I've been reading other posts here for a while now. Lots of good information and neat projects. I wanted to see if anybody had a similar experience as i did with my miter saw. I've noticed that if i have say a wider piece of plywood - 12"...

    Some good things I found on-line that I thought I'd pass along to all my buddies and anyone who happens upon this post. TIP #!: Fence transforms tablesaw into a real router table Free plans for those who want or have a router table extension on their table saw...

    I'm sure this topic has been beat to death but I have to ask. I'm in the market for a sliding miter saw. My budget is <$600. I've been looking at the Makita ls1016l as it can cut 4×4's but takes less room than a 12". I like the Bosch articulating arm but it's pricey and people seem scared of its...

    Hello, I've just kindly been given a whole bunch of woodworking machines by a man who has retired from the trade. One of those tools, a Dewalt DW 1201 has left me puzzled. I'm a cabinet makers apprentice of about 6 months so my knowledge is very limited on the setup of this machine although I...

    Hi All, I'm hoping somebody with a Grizzly 1022 contractor saw can help me understand how the blade height locking mechanism is supposed to work. I've gone through the mechanism and made sure all the collars are tight and everything seems to be in order. However, when I set the blade height...

    Hey all! I've just put together a Grizzly G0490W - 8" Jointer with Parallelogram Beds and started to check/ set up the beds before using it. How accurate do you guys set this up before it's acceptable to use? I'm using "this 50 straight edge and started by checking the individual beds with...

    So I recently put together a large crosscut sled (30" x 36") for my table saw. I made a smaller one (24" x 18") and find it indispensable for small work. I thought a large one would be a great addition. So I was trying to square it up tonight using the William Ng version of the five cut...

    I just got a 10" sliding miter saw that is a huge step up for cutting larger pieces, but I am baffled about something that it's doing and I'm hoping that someone here can help me pin it down. I aligned my fence to the blade so that the blade cuts square for the entire travel of the slide. When I...

    I just built my first table saw crosscut sled. Pretty happy with the results. This may be a pretty dumb question but I'm wondering about the fence accuracy. I used the 5 cut method(with lots of practice) and I'm getting an off millimeter reading of -.126. (Negative point 126). Is that ok or...
