  1. Such a Waste

    Rick was in the building mood this weekend and so I put my wish list in and we made a couple waste bins out of the pine boards we got a couple weeks ago. The bins are nothing fancy, just the way I like it, and will probably get all distorted because they are fresh boards, but that will just add...
  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. Trash Can Bin

    Built this to keep the neighborhood cats out. Made from pressure treated wood. We just recoat every year with Thompsons and it still looks good.

  4. potato and onion bin

    after being married 14 year only my wife would want something from my shop! so she wished for a potato and onion bin but she wanted a spot for garlic to so that is why the top opens.
  5. Compost Bin

    While I'm not much of a gardener, my girl is pretty good at it. Unfortunately, the soil around our new house was lacking basically every type of nutrient known to man. I bought a test kit a while back and every single test (Nitrogen, Potassium, etc…) came up as deficient. So, we decided to...
  6. Compost Bin on the cheap

    Ok… So cheap is a relative term here. I had some left over 4' fencing that I tool down when my dog died. So not to waste, I used those materials to create this compost bin that , I think, has a nice look. A few rules that I learned about composting.. It has to be turned. It needs air flow. It...

    16W x 24H x 30L made out of knotty pine not going to put a back on it, so I get the max air flow stained it with BEHR oil wood stain 611 colonial maple
  8. Potato and onion bin

    Here is the latest project which came out of the basement workshop. I made it out of pine, and it is painted white to match the rest of the kitchen cabinets. THe frames are put together with pocket screws. I did use a lot of plywood to minimize how much wood I would otherwise have had to edge...
  9. Steamer Trunk ~ for traveling the High Seas ~ back in the day

    This style of trunk was used back in the days before airplane travel was common and people traveled on cruise ships such as the Queen Mary (and the Titanic) for their vacations that could last up to 6 months or more. So they carried everything neatly packed in large wooden trunks. The...
  10. Christmas Gifts: Shoji style newspaper collector bin

    A good exercise in mortise/tenon (36 joints) and half-lap joinery. This is version 2 of a Xmas gift. The first version was bigger than it had to be. It will replace an ugly metal newspaper collector in the living room. Uses a fair amount of lumber, maple and walnut in this case. The 2 rosewood...
  11. Tater + Onion Dispenser System

    Okay, not exactly fine woodworking this time. Still, a dispenser system like this is very useful addition to your root cellar. Full step-by-step instructions available here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Tater-onion-dispenser-system/ Also, this is on my project blog, here...
  12. Practical Winter Workshop Finland

    Being an English man in Finland the winter has come as a bit of a challenge to me. Where my tools are the temperatures as cold as -20 which means all the wood glues, oils, painds and varnishes will be moved in doors next winter as a lot of them froze quite solid. I could not do fine accurate...
  13. Tator Bin

    This is an oldie that I thought I'd share while I'm rebuilding my shop after moving. I made this about 9 years ago when I had not more than a cheap Craftsman [death machine] contractors table saw and a belt sander. All the wood (maple?) was planed (not sure you can really call it that…) from...
  14. Wine Barrel Old Glory with mounted F/A-18 Hornet

    I love making flags from old wine or whiskey barrels but I needed something to amp this one up a little. I added a Sapele F/A-18 Hornet and seems to be a nice finishing touch. Fly Navy.
  15. Twin Bins!

    Two garbage bins I was commissioned to make for a friend's cottage. The tops lift off so you can install your bag, then when put back on, they cover the bag to hide it as well as hold it in place. The bag in the photo is over-sized, so it is a tad large, but I think a standard size bag should...
  16. Cake Pop Stands

    Hello everyone. This is my first official project on LJs (and first non-shop project that I've ever done since starting woodworking in October 2011). My sister-in-law is a baker and she makes cake pops, basically lollipops made of cake for those that aren't aware. She was making some for a...
  17. Scrap Cutoff Storage Cart

    Another LONG OVERDUE project. I was starting to lose a lot of floor space along the back wall, so I couldn't put it off any longer. I looked at a hundred other bins before settling on this design. The two litter buckets on the left bottom are my burn bucket (for which my New Year's Resolution it...
  18. Felder saw outfeed table + scrap bin

    I waited too long to do this, the stock table is too short to support full panels when you cut them length wise, so the panels tip over and sometimes get damaged. My previous saw had a narrower table that worked well, but scraps and sawdust would still fall behind the saw and get everything...
  19. Kid's Room Shelves

    I finally completed my first big furniture project. My daughter wanted me to make her some shelves for her room when she moved into it, and I did. The design was largely custom to what she wanted. It's all pine (her request) from Home Depot. It has shelves for books and other stuff, and a bin at...
