  1. Sawstop dado throat plate with replaceable insert

    When I purchased my saw, I purchased the dado cartridge and Sawstop throat plate. Honestly, I haven't even used it yet since I didn't want to use the throat plate for one size dado and then have to purchase another the next time I needed a dado (I like the idea of zero clearance for dadoes :) )...
  2. Hanging Wall Shelf ala Paul Sellers

    My Wife has been wanting a hanging shelf for the bathroom for a while now and I've been wanting to build the Paul Sellers Wall Shelf, soooo I bought some Cherry, planed it down and built it all by hand using Paul Seller's methods. Project has hand cut housing dadoes and stub and through mortise...
  3. Wine Rack

    This is the first of many styles that I will be building in the future. Supports are dadoed into the uprights. I thought this would look better then just nailing them on.
  4. Another kerfmaker

    I finish this kerfmaker earlier today, since its been pretty slow at work lately, the company decided to give us Fridays off too and well basically I was pretty bored and decided to make on of these little jigs, wooohh I can't believe how easy it is to make dado's that fit really tight. I don't...
  5. 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...
  6. White Storage Seat Box

    This is a white storage box I made for one of my neighbors. It is made out of white 3/4 melamine with white band edging. When the seat is the lid and when it is lifted you can see the rails giving the seat support. I originally made it for her to be a toy box but it has been turned into a toy...
  7. Cherry Shaker Style Bookcase

    My first lumberjocks project. This case is pictured with the final coat(hopefully) of poly. It took a little over a month to complete and that was working everyday in the morning for a few hours before work at 2 pm. This is also my first comissioned piece. I guess i could be considered a pro now...
  8. Hidden Dado, Sturdy Cart

    Combining matching stop dados on the top and bottom with notches in the sides and back makes the cart easy to assemble and very strong. 3/4" MDF with a 1" top. I used a simple guide on the router to match the distance from the edges to match the top and bottom. I got lucky on the back in that...
  9. Greene & Greene Inspired Pedalboard

    This pedalboard was commissioned for a guitarist friend of mine. It is constructed of walnut, with a 1/2 birch plywood surface that is captured via stopped dadoes. The pyramid walnut plugs were added for decoration along with the custom logo. The outside is 2" thick at the front and 1" thick...
  10. Dado sizer

    A jig I made for making my Mission table lamps. I received a very nice dado set for Christmas and just now had the opportunity to use it. The idea of combining the right number of blades and size to fit a two pieces of wood together was overwhelming to me. I came up with a plan: on each blade...
  11. Barn board kitchen cabinets

    Made some kitchen cabinets out of floor boards from a haymow. Most boards are elm, with some birch, red oak, white oak and maple. The boards were in the haymow as floor boards for around 80 years. The carcasses are made with 3/4" birch plywood. The drawers are maple with finger, dadoes, and...
  12. a couple more

    Made a couple more this weekend. The darker one is a grab bag wood(don't know species) the lighter one is out of the wood shown (Bradford pear tree that fell this winter). I love the graining inside the pear Thanks for looking
  13. Collecters Plate Rack

    built this plate rack, as I was building a two shelf plate rack for a customer, this one is for my loving wife, Tannia
  14. vine trellis for neighbors

    This is a redwood trellis for our neighbors to support their passion flower vine which has recently collapsed. The size: 6'6" tall, 40" wide. It's finished with one coat of redwood color penetrating oil; I considered marine spar varnish for finish, but the redwood is very soft. I thought the...
  15. Obligatory First Bookshelf

    From the few things I've read, it almost seems like a right of passage to build a set of bookshelves as one of, if not the, first project as a woodworker. The cliche wasn't enough to dissuade me. It didn't hurt that we had boxes and piles of books strewn across the house, either. I was feeling...
  16. Decorative Bench

    My first real woodworking project (besides a birdhouse I made that birds refuse to live in). It's a decorative bench that sits outside my front door. I made it out of pine, fir, or whatever softwood planks they had at Home Depot. It was my first attempt at using dados. I didn't have a table saw...
  17. Burl Pine End Table Turquoise Inlay

    Burl Pine end table, Sits on a burl cottonwood base and has a burl cottonwood top. We inlayed a piece of burl pine in the top and laced turquoise though the pine veins. It is 23" tall and the top measure 17"x22" We finished the top with tongue oil and the burl pin pedestal was sprayed with...
  18. ZCI from a ZCI

    A couple years back I picked up one of the Leecraft ZCI's and have loved it ever since. It fits my tablesaw perfectly and the adjustment screens make sure I get it dead level. However, at ~$25 a pop it would get expensive to have one for each blade, especially if you think about a dado stack...
  19. Oak Tool Tote for Nephew

    This is a late Christmas Present for my 7 year old nephew who spends just as much time in the garage trying to build things as I do. I filled it with a basic starter woodworking set per Paul Seller's recommendations. The tool tote is simple housing dado joints all done by hand made with...
  20. Super Quick and Ugly Dado Stack Box

    OK, so normally I wouldn't post something of this…utilitarian nature, but I was pretty proud of how fast I was able to complete it and how it was just what i needed. Anyway, I had my dado stack mounted for another project I was finishing up (i'll post that one soon), and as i was taking it off...
