  1. Small Shelf Hanging on the wall

    My daughter asked for a small set of shelves to hang on the wall near her door. She sketched something like what I made for her. A french cleat makes for a strong mount. 3/4" oak ply for the case; 1/4" oak ply back; red oak trim on the front; 1/2 white oak top; finished with a few coats of...
  2. 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...
  3. Hanging Wall Cabinet with some Blues

    My first hanging wall cabinet - that isn't shop furniture. I emulated a couple different plans I found from FWW. Here's some specs: 23.5"h, 11"w, 7"d - knotty cherry, walnut pulls, beetle kill pine for back and drawer bottoms - federal blue milk paint with dewaxed shellac on top - Watco Danish...
  4. Cordless Drill Charging Station

    This is my latest project for my workshop. The design is based off project by LJ HickoryHill found here. The design of the drill shelf was based on ShopNotes Issue 58 along with the design of the drawer. The case is made out of 3/4" plywood. The drawer is made out of 1/2" plywood with a 1/4"...
  5. Glue/Paper Towel Station

    Another project for my wall cleat system. This plan came from Wood Magazine's Idea Shop #5. It is made from 1/2" plywood for the sides and dividers, 1/4" plywood for the bottom, and 3/4" hardwood for the front and back. The plan called for 1/2" front and back and 3/4" dowel. I used a 9/16"...
  6. Cleat System for Bicycle and Kayak Hoists

    Originally, I used the "cleats" that came with the Rad Sportz Bicycle and Kayak hoists (which I believe are made in Germany), but they are really only cheap bent metal. Also, with only the one cleat and so much rope required to operate the system, it gets wrapped around the cleat and yet still...
  7. Day's End

    Day's End is a EZ Carve Christmas tree ornament. Carved from 3/8" thick basswood, painted with acrylics and finished with Deft spray lacquer.
  8. French Cleat Measurement Tool Storage

    A few years ago, I installed a pair of French cleat rails in our garage. At the time, I had grand plans to build all sorts of handy little storage racks and the like. Aside from some clamp racks and a crosscut sled holder, I never built any of those things. Now that I can't easily go out and buy...
  9. Diamantes De Madera

    Howdy, This is the one that kept giving me finishing fits as I tried an unfamiliar technique. I went back to my tried and true method and finally finished it. I had this project stuck in my head for a while. When I found a sweet sale at Rockler for a bunch of Peruvian Walnut, I grabbed it. All...
  10. French Cleat Tool Holders for 2 Jig Saws

    I recently completed making yards worth of French Cleats and now I get to fill them up, in a never ending effort to clean up my shop space. I was using the Jig Saws to cut out squares in the plywood French Cleat walls for the electrical outlets, so they were the first tool holders that I...
  11. Removable Wall Hanging Chisel Rack

    I recently built myself a rack to hang my chisels on the wall. It has a blade guard at the bottom to prevent me hitting the sharp edges by accident and it can unhook from the wall to carry it to my bench. The blade guard then provides quite a wide base to keep it upright. It hangs on the wall...
  12. Charger Station for Shop

    Quick and dirty charger station. I don't like to spend time on shop furniture. (Fun fact: that festool charger used to belong to the wood whisperer! I picked up his old Carvex.)
  13. Wall mounted laundry room table

    The table is a mishmash of lumber I had on hand. The apron, vertical supports, and cleats are all made from pine I had left over from other projects(and in the case of the apron I made it from some lumber the previous homeowner left in my garage). The angled supports are simple red oak from...
  14. French cleat, with a Danish accent...

    French cleat with a Danish accent… First of all I need to tell those who did not see it; 'I'm back in the shop'! Made a little blog with a shop tour: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/39554 Sorry put the wrong link first… This is the simple French cleat I put up on all the tool walls in the...
  15. carving mirror

    my first atempt to fixit and i think i do it enough well.
  16. Platform bed

    I came across this idea on an open source plan on some web site. They used it as an entertainment center. This seem like a logical choice for a platform bed. I like the simple modern/contemporary lines. The plan on the web used 1" euro-ply baltic birch. Not something that is stocked here...
  17. Bathroom Linen Cabinet

    A recently completed linen cabinet for our main bath that has no built in closet. Wife wanted something that would hold alot, but it turned out a little bigger than planned. Cabinet carcass is solid cherry, doors are curley cherry. Reeded half colums were done on Legacy Mill in three...
  18. Pastry Board for the Master Pie Maker

    Mom had a cheapo pastry board that she didn't really care for because it had a cleat on both surfaces but her rolling pin would hit the one on top at the back. It was starting to split and was a bit too small too. Lumberjock to the rescue with a new pastry board for Christmas. It's approximately...
  19. Router table Box Joint Jig

    After tons of research online and help from my LJ's buddies I designed my own box joint jig for a router table without a sliding mortise track.. This project took much longer than I thought because of the minute adjustments I had to make in the jigs final position and secure the cleat.. But...
  20. Clamp Rack v2

    I started switching over to a cleat system, and since my old clamp rack (last picture) was starting to overflow, I decided it was a good first choice to update. I finished the main rack, still need to do a second one for the aluminum bar clamps, and a third for hanging the small clamps. It was...
