  1. Circular Saw - Rip Cut Jig

    Been ripping plywood sheets for my shoe cabinet projects and this jig is a great help in cutting down plywoods into different widths. Made of 1/2" leftover plywoods, 3/8" bolt and a T-nut as the lock. A one peso coin is placed under the bolt to prevent marking or damage on the sliding t-square...
  2. Using up some of the "scrap" from the sawmill shed

    I took some "during" pictures of this little table made from a busted honeylocust crotch and a little walnut. I just doweled/glued the base to the top. Simple but sturdy lap joints on the stretcher/legs. A little closer look at the butterflies. A few coats of Tung oil and it is done.
  3. circular saw zero clearance insert and guide system

    i recently bought the woodriver guide rail system from woodcraft. i made a zero clearance plate for my circular saw and added a piece of oak on the side that i matched to the guide rail to act as a glide. it works really well i made a little cutting guide with a saw kerf to easily line up where...
  4. Desktop Bag Toss

    This mini indoor version of Baggo or Bean Bag Toss is designed to sit on a desktop or tabletop and well sized for a typical office cube. It is a fairly simple project - easy to build. The free plans are available on our web page here . We also made three videos giving a blow-by-blow account of...
  5. Shop made panel saw

    This is one of my favorite jigs in my shop, my version of a panel saw. The base is 3/4" MDF. Instead of using a full sheet as the base (which I thought would be too heavy and to hard to maneuver around the shop), I cut it into strips and laminated most of the grid to double thickness to make it...
  6. Versatile Benchtop Table

    Here's a benchtop table I had in mind for a long time. It's meant to be used in conjunction with different tools in the shop and around the house. I started with the idea of using such table with a jig saw and while building it I came up with more and more features and uses. And it's easy to...
  7. Kid's Dress Up Station

    My wife found this somewhere online, probably Pinterest, a while back and asked if I could make it. It wasn't as hard to do as I thought it would be and she painted it up afterward. I think it turned out pretty well. It is made out of 1/2" plywood and a long dowel rod. I used pocket screws and...
  8. Impossible! Wood Sphere Cut with a Circular Saw

    Using a little red neck ingenuity, I cut a perfect wood sphere with my Makita Circular Saw.. Not sure why but it was fun doing it! check out the video link below to see how it was done.. thanks
  9. Zero Clearance for Circular saw

    I lowered the base plate of the circular saw until the blade didn't stick through. I used heavy duty double sided tape to adhere a 3/16 inch scrap birch ply piece. I then turned on the saw and lowered it through the birch ply creating the zero clearance. As you can see in the last picture I...
  10. Solar Kiln

    I started with a need and an idea. I gathered up mostly reclaimed wood and built a small solar kiln. Started with a shipping crate and a few leftover 2×4s but did have to buy the plywood and plastic. It measures about 3' deep x5' wide x4' tall. It is now sitting by the fence facing south and...
  11. Window Seat

    The corridor in our home features a nook with a window which the previous owners had used as a computer study area. With 1 year old twins in the house we were keen to convert this into a kiddies corner. The first phase was to install a window seat featuring hinged panels that also offered extra...
  12. Plywood Tipi

    I had one of these as a kid and remember how we would climb all over it for hours. When my mom was out I asked her if she still had the plans. She said yes but, it just took 2 pieces of plywood cut corner to corner. Well after she left I thought about it, went out and bought 2 pieces of plywood...
  13. Home Office Cabinets

    A cabinet project I recently completed to convert a small third bedroom into a home office. Upper & Lower Cabinet Carcasses: 3/4" black melamine for most of the cabinet carcasses. Cabinet construction is frameless style with Titebond melamine glue and 7mm x 50mm confirmat screws. 7/8" maple...
  14. Butcher Block Kitchen Island Cart

    A few months ago my wife and I found an apartment we really liked, but had a small kitchen area. We love to spend time in the kitchen making food together, so this was kind of a downer. The place had enough perks for me to want it anyway, but my wife still wasn't sold. Without much prior...
  15. Homemade track saw

    One of the first jigs I ever made. Got the plans from an 2004 issue of "The Ultimate Jigs & Fixtures Handbook," published by August home publishing. The top strip of plywood joins together 2 pieces of track that span a little over 8' the single track measures about 60"
  16. Arts and Crafts Mantle Clock Prototype

    Working on designs for several Arts and Crafts mantle clocks. The pictures are of a prototype for the simpler design done to work through construction methods and form. The prototype is 9 inches tall, 9 inches wide at the top, and 5 inches deep constructed of quarter sawn red oak to...
  17. Farmhouse Table!! Pictures inside!

    I started this farmhouse table last weekend. I worked on it Saturday and Sunday then again today…so in all it took about 8-10 hours total each weekend to get to this point. I have stained it, as you can see, but not exactly sure how I am going to seal it yet. I am thinking of using wax...
  18. Bike Rack/Loft

    Howdy, I'm still battling with my Garage. No time for cool projects. I'm just building units to organize everything. The Bikes - The Poor Poor Bikes. Those guys need some TLC. At least I'll stop tripping over them. Materials (6) 2 X 4 Salvaged 2X3 scraps. Salvaged Plywood 24X8 Bike hooks...
  19. New Front porch

    Last picture shows what the old porch was like. Too hard for old knees to use, no handrail, either…even the Post Office complained about it. I covered over the old porch, added a new deck, railings, and new, easy to walk up stairs, with a handrail…took about 6 days, working around rain...
  20. Road trip map frame

    My sweetie and I have a map of all the road trips we've taken over the years. Until recently, I just had the map mounted on the wall with blu-tack, but about every six to eight months it would fall down and I would have to put it up again. I finally got to the point that I decided I needed to...
