  1. six sided box

    This is a box that just about ended up in the trash, first of all i srarted out to make a box that had only 3 sides, i soon found out that the pieces did not fit together, i come to realize that my saw when i read 30 degrees that was the outside angle & not the inside one to give me my triangle...
  2. Mother's Day Gift for my Mother-in-law

    This is a spin-off of the simple cell phone stand I did last year. I started to make a recipe card holder for my wife and didn't like how it was turning out (she still thought it was fantastic) and she suggested that I make one for her mom. I put it off at Christmas and decided to actually...
  3. Kitchen Table

    We have a rather small kitchen with storage that just didn't quite meet my wifes needs. After some diliberation on what she wanted, an arguement with the kitchen as to why it couldn't expand on it's own and make more room, this is what I came up with. (Shhhh, don't tell anyone but I had...
  4. Blue Collar Bread Board

    Don't know about you, but, this is how us blue collar crusty carpenters like makin bread boards. . . Yes sir, you can use it. ... go ahead, slice somethin on it. . . You won't find no mortised handmade miters, baltic bamboo butterflies or a slidin sassafrass slip fit. No swirlin CNC...
  5. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am currently designing a Bunk bed and would like to know opinions of what wood to use for slats and how to keep the side rails from bowing over time. I have decided on 1.5" x 6" side rails on top and bottom bunks with dowels set into a cleat and slots at the end of each slat to prevent them...
  6. Woodworking Skill Share
    Something went weird with the original post. Let me try this again… I have built some doors for a small (4ft tall) bookcase. They will have frames, faux muntins and a single piece of glass in each door, when complete. The wood used to make the door frames (frame around the glass in the doors...

    Lumber for the Top One of the hardest things about building anything here is finding nice wood. It seems that if you want anything better than standard construction lumber, you're up the creek. That's bizarre in a country that does so much logging and has so much nice exotic wood (I guess...
  8. Woodworking Skill Share
    I built a solid, vertical grain fir table top in my shop a couple of weeks ago. It was 7' x 42" wide so it was quite large. 3×3" legs with a short 1 1/2" apron and a 1 1/2" thick top as per the customers requests. They wanted a parsons-styled table. I secured the top to the frame/apron by...
  9. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm thinking about putting together a custom bar-height table for group projects. I really like the look of butcher block, and I'm thinking about getting a piece of beech 25" wide x 96" long (and 1.5" thick). I'm going to order 40" tall hairpin legs ('three-rod' style) made of 1/2" steel. The...
  10. Wood & Lumber
    I have an 8' x 40 inch dining table. It is a bookmatched 2 inch thick walnut. It has a terrible cupping problem. Since this picture was taken, I have since got the cupping out. I wet it down and put buckets of sand on top. I also, put a pot of water on a hot plate burner under it. Then I covered...
