  1. My Cutoffs & Sheets Cart

    I've seen a few variations of this idea on the website. I decided to combine a few design ideas that I've seen and make my own. It holds quite a bit of stock. This project actually gave me a headache. I didn't draw it up very well, so I kind of designed it as I went. Guess how many sheets of ply...
  2. American Girl Doll Bunk Bed

    I built a bunk bed specifically for an American Girl Doll collection. It was made with hand tools from scraps and cutoffs that were lying around the shop. The finish is one coat of stain and one coat of varnish.
  3. Small Scrap Lumber Cart

    I just finished building this small cart to hold my ever-growing collection of scrap lumber. It's a modified version of a Fine Woodworking design. It also incorporates some ideas (pocket hole joinery instead of dadoes and blunt divider ends instead of bevels) fellow LJer YesHaveSome presented in...
  4. Swing out plywood/cut off storage

    Got this plan from the Woodwhisperer, episode 144 "Racking my Brain". There are plans for this on his site. Was a perfect way to organize the shop! I went with cheaper plywood than he recommends, but I did select the flattest stuff Lowe's had, and used it the same day to get decent results...
  5. Not what I was supposed to be doing.

    Ok, so I have another 2 or three Christmas Gifts to finish for those we will see later this month. Don't have all of the bits I need for the project, so decided to clean up a bit in the shop yesterday. Found several pen blanks I made back in November, whit cleaning the shop and generated more...
  6. Sheet Goods & Cutoffs Trolley/Rack

    Inspired by a model that I've seen in a magazine or on the web, I built myself this sheet goods and cutoffs trolley, or mobile rack. About 15 years ago I built a narrower sheet goods mobile rack (kind of tippy) and about two years ago a mobile cutoffs bin, but this new one combines both, meaning...
  7. Oak Pie Safe

    I live in an old farm house which does not have a lot of cabinet space. We needed more space to store kitchen stuff in so I designed this solid oak pie safe. It has 2 adjustable shelves in it. It was a lot of fun to design and build
  8. Another Large 7' Madrone Burl 8000 lbs

    One more Madrona burl I am still processing into craft wood. The last piece is going to be a table top. Any one want the first cut. It is the 3 trunks with a nice burl face. Flip it over and have a nice 1500 lbs table.
  9. Lumber Storage Carts

    Made with scrap pieces of poplar, put together with pocket holes and peg board. Perfect for organizing cutoffs.
  10. Salt Cellar

    This is a salt cellar based on the wood whisperer's video. this was a fun and easy project. I had a stack of 4/4 cherry cutoffs all 10" long so I glued them together in a big stack. I used a 3-1/8" forstner bit to drill the holes, much easier than all the routing. I glued a dowel in the bottom...
  11. #1 on the Honey Do List Complete

    The wife has been after me about building her a new side table for the foyer so I surprised her with this. She found a pic of one similar online so I just had some specs to draw and a little building. It's 33" tall x 17.5" deep x 53" long, and took about 30 bf of 8/4 walnut. The finish is 1...
  12. Beer Tote and Small Box

    Made this beer/drink tote for my brother in law for Christmas, and used some of the cutoffs to make a little jewelry box for his wife. I used aspen for the tote and aspen with some leftover sapele for the box, both finished with wipe on poly. I didn't get very good pictures of them before I gave...
  13. Marketplace Classifieds
    Hello, Last year my organization held our annual Poker Tournament (fund raiser). It was the first year we commissioned a wooden poker box (on LumberJocks) as the Grand raffle prize for our event. We received quite a few interested comments from many of you on this site, and, we were very happy...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    Over the past 6 to 8 weeks I have been cleaning up my shop and pulling things out of storage. Last night I was surprised when I realized that I filled a 31 gal Rubbermaid tote with pieces of wood 8 inches or less in length (the widths also varied) and there are scraps of plywood in there as...
  15. Focus on the Workspace
    Having lots of craps is something I never thought about before getting into woodworking. My garage is a mess with this stuff. I've got a giant trash can full of them and that's nowhere near enough storage. Maybe I'm keeping too much, maybe I don't know how to organize, maybe both. How do you...
  16. Wood & Lumber
    Ok LJ's. I trust this place more than the store reviews. Has anyone on here bought this. Is this a good buy or no? I have zero hardwood planks on hand. Do not a band saw yet, so resawing my own stuff for small pieces is out of the question. (I have maple and some oak and some pine branches here...
  17. Wood & Lumber
    Hi guys, I'm new here but have been trolling the forum for a while. I'm trying to figure out the price for what appears to be cut offs. Here's the situation; A nice lady I recently met lost her husband a few years ago, who as just starting to get into hobby woodworking. She is just now thinking...

    SketchUp Plans - Sheet Goods & Cutoff Rack edit - I actually did this before the workbench, but since I'm adding it to this series after the fact, it winds up as #2. I designed this partly to learn more about using SketchUp, and partly because its something I'd like to make to keep organized...
  19. Blogs
    Finally got some of this lingering idea together I have redesigned this thing several times, waaay overdesigned it in SketchUp while briefly mad with visions of increasingly elaborate designs in even the most utilitarian of shop storage solutions, and tried to build it 3 times previously...
