  1. Very Basic Construction Lumber TV Stand From Douglas Fir 2X

    This was my first attempt at getting commissioned. I don't think I will do it again because I don't think the appreciation is out there for the amount of work it takes to build something like this. I know this for sure based on the low ball request that I must have been out of my mind to agree...
  2. Clamp Rack, Catch All? Maybe both...

    And yet ANOTHER "A" Frame Mobile clamp rack! Maybe it is, but I also started this thing about midnight last night and finished it off before I crawled into bed around 6am. Definitely a project that can be completed in an afternoon, regardless of when your afternoon might be! I also included a...
  3. Office Shelving

    Needed some shelving for the office. Made this in 2 days using some 2×10s. Had some inspiration at a coffee shop, so we went home and promptly designed and built it.
  4. Firstborn Furniture-Rocking Chair

    Completed in 1988. I cranked out this rocking chair shortly after my first child was born. I didn't have many tools back then, but I was still able to make some pretty nice furniture. The rocking chair is solid cherry and was made from a blueprint called the "Bates Gentleman's Rocker." I...
  5. Rustic Construction Lumber Coffee Table

    I am very excited about how this project turned out. I bought 5 SPF 2×6 from the big box store. They were very white in color so not exactly sure what they were. I started by ripping the lumber down to 2.5" strips and being very picky on which parts of the lumber made it in the top. I then...
  6. Designing Woodworking Projects
    On a Nicholson style bench, made with dimensional/construction lumber… how do you keep the tops and aprons from 'Pringle-ing' aka cupping/bowing? It's not like you can really cut out just quarter-sawn area, not unless you want to rip and edge-glue a lot of thin strips? Very frustrating to have...
  7. Wood & Lumber
    Hi everyone, Our company is looking to find somewhere in the continental US that is supplying lumber at better than market prices. I know some other companies would find this information of value as well since in most places were experiencing shortages as well as an immense inflation of prices...

    Gearing up As some here know, I enjoy entering my woodworking projects in the local Fair Competitions. This year is no exception. Last year I entered a Wooden geared clock at the Orange County Fair in Southern California. This year I will be entering the same clock in the Puyallup Fair in...

    HHWW: Wheatgrass Trellis A while back I saw this video about growing wheat grass fodder. View on YouTube It took my fancy as we need additional fodder for the chickens. I worked up a design in SketchUp a couple of months ago: With the plastic garden trays in: I decided to half lap the...

    Google Sketchup and Design Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 is going to be a follow on to the review I posted around this time last year. It seems to have been fairly liked considering it now shows up on Google within the first page of search results. Just type in "Chainsaw Mill" into Google and...

    Why dimensional lumber is wrong for woodworking The girlfriend and I have been getting into the gardening spirit lately and planting anything and everything that will grow here in the NorthWest. With not a lot of places to plant things I decided to move to the patio for options, some planter...
  12. Wood & Lumber
    Any problems with using Elm in place of SPF dimensional lumber? The hardness seems to be up there and it seems like it should be stable enough once dried.

    I am looking for anyone in West Michigan interested in trading lumber and veneer. I have access to great lumber like soft maple, hard maple, walnut, mahagony, cherry, oak, etc. And I have a huge stock of figured veneers in long and wide sheets. BUT, I do not have any source for birdseye...
