  1. Measure Nonce Cut Once

    I've been turning for three years and I figured that it was time I learned how to do other things. But-I'm more of an artist rather than a mathematician and found that I could measure three times and still get it wrong. Since my husband put up French cleats in our new-ish workshop, I thought...
  2. Fundraiser Item: Serving/Drink Tray

    I made this serving tray/drink tray for a fundraiser that we are having tonight for my wife, Lisa. She will be walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure, in San Diego, in the middle of November. It is a 3-day walk that spans 60-miles (20-miles/day). She has participated in the Susan...
  3. Church Organ Grill Repair

    We have an old wooden church that was moved to the current church grounds that dates from the 1860's. We now use it for a wedding chapel and morning mass. Inside is this very old walnut case foot-pump organ that is still used for services. I was asked to repair the sound grill if possible...
  4. New Box Clamps (Many Thanks Klaus and Alex /Tyvekboy )

    Thank you Klaus for posting your clamps and the plans from Alex /Tyvekboy. I finally got around to making a set for my self. Your plans are easy to follow. I also used your video to help with the build. All I have to do now is pick up a clamp that I can work with one hand while holding the...
  5. My winter, self inflicted project.

    Before associating with this great assemblage, (LJ's) I had thought that building a 'real' bench was only a final project upon graduating from cabinetmakers school.This is, without a doubt, the largest and most challenging project that I have ever attempted.Various details of construction and l...

    These are the last of the fundraiser items I made for the fundraiser we held for my wife last night, who is walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, 60-mile walk in San Diego this November 19th. Her story about why she is participating in the walk is here...
  7. Homemade clamps from wood

    Inspired by lumberjock Dave Rutan. Thanks Dave! I made these clamps from scrap pine and plywood. I also made the handles a bit over-sized for a better grip and added a nut to the end for a wrench during the times I need some extra clamping pressure.
  8. Clamp rack wall

    This is my new clamp wall and the racks I made to accommodate the not so abundant collection of clamps. Each on of these are modular and are 25" in length. They are mounted to the studs and to each other to make one continuous rack that has many different styles of clamps to be held in them...
  9. Another Shop Project..Clamp racks

    My garage is more organized now than it's ever been but I'm still working on it. This was my latest project. I originally had my pipe clamps mounted horizontally on the wall but it wasn't convenient so I found this pipe clamp rack idea. It's was so easy to make with a 2 X 4 and 1/2" steel rod...
  10. Mobile Clamp & Finish Accessories Cabinet

    It's always fun to take someone's great idea and fit it to your needs. In this case we felt we could add to "Rockler's Pack Rack" and their "Rockler Pack Rack Top Cap". Problem: Not enough storage space for our needs on the Top Cap for Glue and other accessories. Besides the glue, adhesives...
  11. Ultimate Clamp Rack

    Hey, guys! I built the Ultimate Clamp Rack for JET & Powermatic Woodworking. I live in Nashville and the JET/Powermatic training facility is just 30 minutes east in Lavergne, TN. I made this clamp rack to hold 36 JET parallel clamps for their shop and it only takes up 43" of wall space. The...
  12. Pocket Hole Joinery Assembly Fixture

    Holding pocket hole joinery components on edge has always been an issue, therefore a new jig. And here is mine. I've used Melamine because glue won't stick to it, and I had everything in my scrap bins. As shown, I've taken advantage of a groove already milled on the back by adding a cleat so it...

  15. Clamp Rack

    After building my hanging wall tool cabinet and saw till, the only thing left to organize was my clamps. Previously they had been teetering on a 3/8 inch dowel which worked fine for awhile, until the weight started to load up and it sagged badly. Anyways, here's my simple solution to that...
  16. Brass Mallet / Carvers mallet (Journeyman) mafe versions

    Brass Mallet / Carvers mallet, MaFe versions Three sizes of DIY Journeyman mallets Intro: I have for a long time had a sweet eye to the little Journeyman brass mallets, so one day where I was at the local scrap iron place I bought a 12 kilo rod of brass (the same price as one mallet). Next...
  17. Walnut and Maple Tealight Candleholder

    This 5-tealight candleholder was made from hard maple and walnut. The strips of wood were crosscut and ripped on the tablesaw before glue-up with Titebond III and 5-clamps. The maple was 5/4 and the walnut was only 4/4, so I ended up cutting a strip of the walnut to set it on edge so as to be...
  18. Clamp rack

    It all started with, what to do with a stack of clamps standing in a corner, and other clamps laying everywhere. Found a lot of ideas here on LJ's. Looked at what the great wood workers like Kent Shepherd had done. Then it hit me that I was over thinking this. Get the same brackets that I used...
  19. clamp storage solution

    This project has taken my garage from being extremely cluttered to just simply cluttered. I was going to work on a project today and i became frustrated at the disorganization of my clamps so i dropped what i was doing and worked on this. Its nothing fancy. I used some scrap mdf that was also...
  20. New landing, stairs and clamp storage

    I replaced my very old and rickety landing and stairs going into my garage/wood shop. After the initial build, I noticed all the potential for storage and got to work. All my clamps are now in one place and easy to access. I plan to add another board under the first one when I buy more long...
