  1. Dust Collection
    I had a small,cheapy battery powered vac we used in the home and car occasionally, but it was sad. Given that we wanted something better for small house, car and shop tasks and I have gone into the Ryobi cordless system, I looked at online reviews and picked it up from Home Depot. I've had it...
  2. Battery Storage/Dispenser

    View on YouTube Are you tired of having your bateries laying around?? I was, thats why I made this dispenser, its fully made of plywood glued together and a piece of acrylic on the front also glued. Finally I gave the wood a dark stain to match the rest of the furniture in the kitchen.
  3. Charging Station with Timer

    Not a terribly exciting project, but after replacing two of my lithium ion batteries and a fried charger, I finally got around to making a charging station with an in-built timer. Replacement batteries are not inexpensive, and I'm told that leaving them on the charger for long periods of time...
  4. Jewelry Box

    This was my "scrapper" box. I always use scrap wood to make my joints first before cutting the actual project on hand. I had built a beautiful Lacewood fireplace mantle and had this wood left over from the job. So I set my blade and cut it up and proceeded to make the box I intended to make. At...
  5. 5-Board Benches

    My new neighbors are waiting for their furniture to arrive from Texas, and they said it might not be here for several months. They asked me to make a couple of five board benches for their dinning room table. They wanted simple. The benches are made from 1X pine, and are about as simple as...
  6. Quilt Cutting Board

    I had some scrap pieces of wood and decided to cut, plane, glue; repeat a few more times and this is what came out. It is 11" x 17" x 1-1/2 thk and made from Black Walnut, Sugar Maple, Shedua, Yellowheart, Macawood, Purpleheart, Paduck, Chestnut and Hickory. Thanks for viewing. -don
  7. Cherry Casket

    This casket (number 7) is made from cherry for the frames and cherry veneers for the panels. Thanks for looking, AKDave
  8. Battery Holders

    These are just simple battery holders that was in one of my woodworking magazines not too long ago. I pretty much went exactly by the plans. It's nothing too fancy, but it's nice to have all my batteries in one easy access holder. I made one for me and one for my father. I added more pictures...
  9. More Piggy Banks

    More piggy banks for the flee market, the last photo is of one I completed earlier. I sprayed a different finish on it. Hopeful thay all sell.
  10. Battery Storage/Dispenser Unit (VIDEO)

    Video can be found here: Storing batteries can be very dangerous, especially 9 volts. 9 volts are particularly dangerous because they have both the + and - terminals right next to each other. This can cause these batteries to easily contact something conductive and heat up extremely fast. This...
  11. Battery Organizer

    I found a free plan recently on the wood magazine site for a battery organizer. I also have a list of free project plan sites. This project is really simple and useful. After completing mine I hung it on a pegboard in my garage. You can make this is a few hours and it only requires a small...
  12. Cordless Drill Station

    Been needing one of these for a while. Meant to put drawers in, but now will probably just leave as is. I like being able to see inside the cubby. Drawers would hide too much. It's just banged together from scraps laying around , but sure does help keep the shop organized a bit better. At...
  13. Calico Maple Table w/ Wings

    I needed this one!!! It was cabinet job after cabinet job there for awhile. And don't get me wrong I'm thankful to be busy but there's something about a big ol dining table that scratches me where I itch. I milled this maple out of a little tree my landlord took down a few years ago and I've...
  14. Battery Box

    This is just a plain simple battery hold box I modified to hold extra AA & AAA batteries. I copied the plans from one of the wood magazines and made it just a bit bigger. I use a lot of batteries. I added the extra spaces for my rechargeable batteries but haven't put them in yet. Thanks for...
  15. Guess Room completed!

    Now that I know i can crank out these furniture pieces pretty quickly I'm gonna start focusing more on my craftsmanship. More dovetail joinery, less kreg tools, and more desirable woods(less poplar). I am still very excited about woodworking as I climb the experience ladder. Here's a full...
  16. Battery organizer with easy battery loading

    To try to coral the various batteries, we though of building a sort of dispenser that would organize the batteries and make it easy to find out which we were low on. Many such organizers are available in plastic but are not very pretty. I wanted an organizer that could be hung on the wall in...
  17. Pear wood fruit bowl

    14" pearwood fruit bowl with live edge. Made as a wedding present and now in hong Kong. Turned on a Charnwood lathe.
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Last night I went to Home Depot intending to buy the 18 Volt Compact Lithium-Ion Drill. However, they only had one left, and the box looked like it had rough time. The sales guy showed me a bundle that came with what seems to be the new 18V Lithium-Ion Max Compact Drill/Driver (R86007) and a...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm forever trying to figure out which of my cordless batteries are charged and which ones aren't. My flash of insight (I needed to post it, since I don't get too many)... Set them one way, and they are full, the other way they need a charge. And write on them which is which, so I don't get...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    ! Its finally coolong down here in North Florida, so I am able to start getting back into my shop and start working and solving some of the things that bug me in the shop. I love my wixey products, but i dont know if its just mine or what, but the readout for my table saw ate batteries. A...
