  1. Sofa computer table

    Because of my bad back, I have hard time sitting on chair. Made a small table which is going to be used exclusively for sofa. Table top and legs are sculptured. I didn't use template so the table is not symmetrical. Top is about 28" high, so it's best if used while sitting on sofa. I remember...
  2. Nightstand for my kids

    I'm a beginner woodworker. I thought nightstands would be easy enough first projects. It was also the first time I was using hardwoods and finishing products. Was too scared to add drawers (my first attempt w/ drawers on my router table was epic!). The bulky one is for my boy and the more...
  3. Night Stand / Bed Stand - Mission Style (Pine)

    Alright. This was a night stand (Mission Style) I drew up and started WAY to fast. Didn't take the time to plan it all out right, especially not having done this kind of thing before or following any references. However, All was not lost. You can hide a lot of mistakes with paint (And a little...
  4. Blanket Chest / Butler's Chest (Pine)

    This was my first furniture project. And I did the whole thing in my apartment and a little on the patio. Not a recommended idea. I will be relocating my tools to my Father-in-law's garage very soon. That said, I think it came out nicely. Specs: Wood - CHEAP knotty pine from home depot (2×4s...
  5. Beginner Classes Projects

    These are the result of three beginner classes in woodworking. Before that time, I had never touched a shop machine but always wanted to learn. Before I invested in such things, I wanted to be sure I could use them and feel comfortable. Unfortunately, our high school (way back when!!!) did...
  6. Beer botttle drain rack

    A friend of mine who also brew's his own beer saw the bottle drain rack that I made for myself. His wife contacted me and asked if I would build one for X-Mas for her husband. So I began working on it. About 2 weeks later I get a email from my friend and he asked me to build him one, well this...
  7. Plant Hanger for Topsy Turvey Containers

    I haven't posted in a while on either business or fun stuff, so I thought I'd share my Memorial Day project. We're not the best gardners, but like to grow fresh herbs (growing basil, mint, parsley, and rosemary in containers now). This year, we decided to try vegatables in those "Topsy Turvy...
  8. Bluebird cabin with dog trot

    Credit for this plan goes to a local lumberyard employee. I bought one of his as a prototype and copied his design (with his permission) to build them as gifts. The house is made from a single 1×12x8 cedar board. The basic design is cut "logs" glued and brad nailed with the help of a homemade...
  9. Mini Cutting Board

    This was a project I did by hand with a sanding block last night from pen blanks. I'm learning about cutting boards at the moment, so I started with a small onion or tomato cutting board. The last picture is before oiling. You can view my step-by-step on this from start to finish at...
  10. Router Table With 2 DROs

    Router table with router lift and Incra fence. I designed and built my own router lift then installed it in a portable table of my own design. My brother made the steel table top for me. The lift has a remote digital readout for height and the fence has a digital readout for position. The sides...
  11. Quick Hanging Drill Cabinet

    I recently bought my first impact driver and wanted a good way to hang it over my workbench. I saw some of these online and figured I could probably handle that. It was a full "winging it" style project that I made up the dimensions and plan for as I went, but it works perfectly for what I need...
  12. Primitive sunshine

    Rustic window sunshine shadow box
  13. cypress vegtable bin

    rustic (thanks Jim) vegtable bin. cypress.
  14. First wood turning project - purpleheart

    This is my first turning project - making a handle for a handmade leather punch. (My father in laws friend showed me how to use the lathe but he did the work.) A cabinet maker invited me to his shop, gave me a lesson and let me go for it. It was a blast! Just loved seeing the wood block...
  15. Pine Bathroom Vanity and built-in shelves - very few power tools

    This is the bathroom vanity I made about 4 years ago. First real project after my beginner classes. I was very sick of looking at the one that came with the house. At the time, I had a table saw and a plunge router…. and hand tools. Quite a challenge. I had the lumber source joint and...
  16. Tarp Rock Farm Sign

    This is an old project of mine. About four years ago, a friend gave me a small hobby-grade carving set for Christmas. At the time, we, and our small herd of goats, had just moved to my in-law's property. My wife and I were joking about naming the barn, and she came up with "Tarp Rock Farm"...
  17. My version of FWW's work bench.

    Here is my completed version of FWW magazine's work bench from the getting started in woodworking series. The legs and shelf were part of an old workbench I had since I was a teenager. The old bench had 1×4 pine for rails and the top was 1" particle board. The legs were 4" square posts which...
  18. Farmhouse table & benches

    This was my first woodworking project and to say that it was a learning experience would be a gross understatement. We recently bought our first home (and adopted our first dog) and realized that our Brooklyn-apartment-sized furniture looked pretty tiny in our new place. The table and benches...
  19. First coasters

    I started taking pallet wood and re-purposing it….made these coasters last year…
  20. Bookshelf/Nightstand

    This project started with my wife wanting something to replace the cheap plastic shelving she was using as a nightstand and the need to use the space behind the door for more than a place to pile things. This shelf was the result. It is made from a single sheet of oak plywood with shoe molding...
