    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...
  2. Office mailbox

    Particleboard with 1/8" mdf dividers,I had the big pieces cut to size at the hardware store and the dados for the dividers and construction were cut with a router running against a rafter square.There were over 150 dados just for the dividers, so I cut two spacers that gave me the distance...
  3. newest teapot of sorts

    I guess I will stop at eight teapots for the shelf is full. The handle and spout is BB plywood and the body is Aspen which is way too soft to work with. I used a number of colors. I told someone this is an exact replica of a 2000 year old teapot. One I have never seen before so no telling if...
  4. Corner Shelf for my Boys

    This is a corner shelf I made for my two older boys who share a room. They currently have a Wal-Mart shelf in there and it is leaning severely, shelves are bending, and the back is falling off. I made this one from scraps and mess-ups from another corner shelf project for my parents. I...
  5. Backless Poplar Bookcase

    About 3+ years ago, I decided to build a bookcase for my daughter's 10th birthday. At that time, I didn't have a planer and didn't know any better, so after making a little sketch plan, I went to the store (either HD or Lowes) and bought some poplar. As I recall, I paid about $220 for it...
  6. Rasp and file till

    In preparation for the box swap I've been trying to clean up my work bench. One of the things that have been taking up a lot of space are my rasps and files, so I decided to build a box for them. Since I've been practicing dovetails, I decided to dovetail the sides of the box together. While...
  7. Giant Bookshelf

    This is a 9 foot tall bookshelf I made for my wife, it is based on the Jay Bates plans. It is made from 2×12's and the shelves sit in dados, which I cut with a router (certainly a learning experience). The shelf was not stable enough sitting on the floor alone, so I was going to anchor it to the...
  8. More $0.51 cull lumber furniture

    For those of you that frequent lumberjocks, you might remember the chest of drawers that I built for my son from cull lumber purchased at home depot for $0.51 each. Well, I made this tv stand for my kids out of the leftover material. I used some very deformed 2×6s to make this project (I guess...
  9. Cabinet

    I wanted to build a cabinet with drawers so I found this project on Pinterest and thought I would try it. It used Dados and Rabbits which was new to me. I followed the plans and took my time. I'm very pleased with the outcome. All drawers work and it is just what I needed.
  10. Video game and controller station

    Video Game Station Video I was tired of seeing my kids room a mess with the controllers everywhere and sometimes lost. They also had a stack of games that would get knocked over at least once a week. I decided to make a station that would house all their controllers and what games they have...
  11. Battery Storage/Dispenser Unit (VIDEO)

    Video can be found here: Storing batteries can be very dangerous, especially 9 volts. 9 volts are particularly dangerous because they have both the + and - terminals right next to each other. This can cause these batteries to easily contact something conductive and heat up extremely fast. This...

    Here's a shelf I built a few years ago. Live edge beetle killed pine. Woodburned the names over the hooks. Sleepy, Whiny, Happy, Bitchy, & Grumpy. 84"w x 13" t x 9"d.
  13. Oak/ Mahogany Moasic Table

    I made this from oak lumber i fished out of a construction dump one day. These were the scraps from a spiral staircase they were building in the house. The inner frame is mahogany. The center is pieces of crushed 4"X4" tile. I mortared the pieces on top of a support underneath. Finished with...

    Got this branding iron at garage sale, it was a county tire branding iron. Took the EMS letters off and cut some new letters off of a brass hinge leaf . Silver soldered the letters on small brass plate and Install on iron . Works pretty well. Found another garage sale branding iron this...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have had the PCB270TS for nearly four years (maybe more) and generally it has been good for me. I have one issue that I cannot figure out a solution for. I find that the lift mechanism accumulates sawdust on the worm drive (not sure if it is from the worm gear or screw shaft). Anyway, this...
  17. Joinery
    Basic stuff. 90° corners. I'm personally making a small indoor shelf/cabinet/case. Roughly 18in W X 20in H X 4in D. Just down on my inventory of tools. Times were tough and I sold my complete Milwaukee 18v Power Set, n most my hand tools. Been accumulating lots more hand tools now though. Used...
  18. Joinery
    I am looking to build a bookshelf for my son and found a design in an old Woodsmith magazine (No. 123). My question on it is. Will it be strong enough using biscuits to join the shelves to the sides or would a dado be better suited. Also if a dado is used would that pose problems with wood...

    New Year...New Hobby I have been known to take up a hobby or 37. At 42, on the cusp of 43, and well into the 'balding' years, I have decided that, in lieu of a midlife crisis, I would take up woodworking. Don't get me wrong, a new car and a 27 year old with huge, firm, hands would be wonderful...

    The Torque Has Landed! Up until now, our friends "Down Under" have been having all the fun. Not any more. The Torque Work Centre is finally available in Lubbock, Texas. That may not excite you, but it certainly does me since I now have one of those fantastic tools. It is the first in the US...
