  1. Every Long Bookcase | Custom

    This is an extra long bookcase that was build in June 2012. It measured 146". The first problem with that is it will not ship very easy. The second problem is it is not practicable to get 146" long material. What I did was to build that in section and have it to seam together after the...
  2. Not a box Oak icosahedron

    So I have been really wanting to build some geodetic domes to make light pendents and mostly for the heck of it. Now i got a few and cant bring my self to drill them for lights. Pretty easy build 15 equilateral triangles cut on the chop saw. Then I put a 20 degree bevel on the bench sander. It...
  3. Organizer

    Not the most elegant project but purpose-built. We had a nook between a wall and the brick fireplace that had become the dumping grounds for anything that didn't have a home - dog snacks, kid's homework, errant electronic devices, cords, etc. So, I built this organizer using really simple kreg...
  4. Shoe Bench with Cubbies

    Step one: buy canvas pull-out bins Step two: Build a box around them. Step three: Sit on the box, take off your shoes, and put them in a Bin. Step four: Post on Lumberjocks. (Made from Pine project panels from lowes…to avoid either panel glue-ups or plywood edging…early American minwax...
  5. Odds and Ends Cubbies

    Nothing ground-breaking here, but I needed to organize! I took the opportunity to use some scrap shop birch and practice dado-ing. Some came out nice and tight, but others were a little gappy. The bins came from Grainger at $1.42 apiece. A STEAL!
  6. locker - cubbies - hall tree - something like dat

    If I waited to post until it was painted, that could be forever… so here is what I got so far. Made 2 boxes, w/ cleats to create the middle locker. Pic 3 - The face frame was higher than the boxes, so I cut some spacers and used scrap plywood as the top, then trimmed w/ poplar so it looks like...
  7. Coat Rack Cubby

    I just finished this project today. It was all made with pine 1×12's reclaimed from my basement. It was all part of a partition wall for the old coal crib in my basement. My house was built in 1916 so it's at least that old. This was my first real furniture piece. Only hand tools were used...
  8. Kid’s Activities Cubby

    This is a very simple project to help us get organized. It now holds the kids coloring books and crayons and stuff like that. All of this stuff usually clutters the kitchen island so this was a much needed addition It only took me about 4 late evening to complete. It's made of birch ply and...
  9. Bench with Cubbies

    This is a really simple plan I got from Ana White. You can cut and assemble it in an afternoon. A 3/4" plywood carcass with hardwood (red oak) face frame for durability.
  10. Pallet Bed for Christmas

    My daughter asked me to build a bed for her out of pallets for Christmas. This is where the fun began. I waited a couple of weeks before I started and built the foot of the bed with some cubbies (Picture 1). I brought it in the carport where I primed and painted it (Picture 2). I didn't try...
  11. Toy Cabinet

    3/4" and 1/2" birch ply with poplar face. 3 coats of water-based enamel sprayed using a harbor freight HVLP gun (4 coats on the top, actually). My third time spraying anything. Eventually I got a pretty smooth glossy finish but there were still a few bubbles. It was hard to find a happy...
  12. Window Bunk with Cubby | Custom

    This bunk bed was designed and built for a Condo in Florida. The customer was limited with space so they wanted to do something slightly smaller then a standard twin (39" x 75"). I came up with 30" x 75". We could keep the needed length and cut some of the width. The design was based off...
  13. Live Edge Walnut Slab Console Table with Cubby & Hairpin Leg

    So, I've always wanted an entryway console table, a place to throw keys, change, sunglasses, etc. when I get home… but, it's a little hard when you don't have a formal foyer, lol! Despite that, I tried to create an official entryway in our home using this console table I built, shoe basket, a...
  14. Hall Tree

    After 10 years of kicking around back packs and shoes that are always in the way, my wife decided she would like a Hall Tree for our foyer. For the last year or so I have been gathering ideas from the internet and putting plans together in "Sketchup". I wanted to re-purpose some old doors and...
  15. Craft Paint Cubby Insert

    A while ago my daughter decided to remove her craft supplies from the cabinet we had relegated to that purpose in the kitchen and put them in her room. She cleared out a shelf that formerly held 'containers of stuff' and asked if I could build some sort of dividers for her paints. Since the...
  16. Clay Cubby

    Another installment in the saga of my daughter organizing her craft supplies. She asked me to build a cubby for her modeling clay. This time I received a rough drawing of what she wanted, so I knew exactly what to do. It's a basic shallow box made from 1/4 inch plywood. No fancy joinery. The...
  17. Desk Top Cubby

    This is a very unique solution to a desk problem I had. I sold my antique roll top desk and then had to use my flat top desk. The flat top had no cubbies or drawers for files and would sit 14" below a window . So I drew up this idea in sketchUp. There are plenty of cubbies and the top sits just...
  18. Power Tool Cubby

    I built this tool cubby as a trial of a way to store my power tools. It is based on Ron Paulk's design (see comments on the post for information about Ron): http://lumberjocks.com/topics/144162. The cubby is 2' wide x 1' high x 11 3/4" deep. the dividers are 1/4" hardboard and are removable. I...
  19. Coat rack with Cubbies

    This was the first piece I built for my new house (and wife). The only tools I had to do this with was a jigsaw, which is still easily my favorite tool and a 6V Black and Decker powered screwdriver with drill bit accessories and a whole bunch of sandpaper. Materials: Cheap solid pine boards from...
  20. Child's Toy Box Chest Seat

    This is a Child's Chest Seat that I made for my daughter's cubby house. It was a lesson in hand-cut mortise and tenon joints for me - 16 of them. Though I did use a cordless drill to remove most of the mortise material. The legs are made from an old pine post I found in the back shed, the...
