  1. Jigs & Fixtures
    After making one of 2 planned workbenches I was frustrated ripping sheets of plywood to dimension. I certainly can't afford a commercial track saw system so I made my own. I was inspired by TTF I was given a free Craftsman circular saw, nice and heavy. I JB welded a plank of 1/2" ply to the...
  2. Airsoft GoPro mount

    Not long ago I bought an airsoft shotgun, to play a few battles with friends and shot them down, but I didnt had a way to film the actual batle, like and first person shoter game. So I searched for some sort of mount to secure my gopro to the weapon.. Unfortunately I only found mount to smg and...
  3. How to make an Up-Cycled Pallet wood Sliding Barn Door

    My kids are avid gamers, and since we moved in to our house they have had their gaming rigs setup in a finished portion of our basement. The problem was that the basement had be modestly finished with simulated wood (read ugly) paneling and the bi-fold door that separated the space from the...
  4. Home made Disc Sander

    I wanted a way to sand outside corners smoothly and quickly. Looking through one of Danny Proulx's books I came across his plans for this DIY version. Went scrounging at my local machine repair shop for a used motor with the right RPM and found one for a bargain price. Everything else is 3/4"...
  5. A (very) poor man's temporary "sawhorse workbench"

    One never seems to have enough tools to build the tools that build the tools etc… The workbench is no exception. Infact not having one is a pain in the behind. So far I've done most of my work on rickety constructions. But I've just finished a small afternoon project that makes building a...
  6. Birdhouse Kit

    So nothing special here, but a friend of mine has a daughter who was expressing interest in making a bird house. My friend has no tools or place to work and felt bad he could not help her. So today I dropped off a bag of everyhting they need to build the house together. I cut and included all...
  7. Violin bow re-hairing vise

    Rather than needlessly spend money, I decided to build a vise with which to learn how to re-hair violin bows. Believe it or not, the horse hair which causes the violin to make sound wears out after some time and must be replaced. It's a lot easier to work on such an object when it is held still...
  8. Friction Fit Wooden Jewellery Box

    In this video I will be making this beautiful Jewellery Box, designed for some Cuff Links. This is a simple build and can be made very easily with limited tools!

  9. Budget Friendly DIY Router Table With Dust Collection

    I've been needing a router table. I've been torn between buying and making one. I recently came across a lot of scraps from a friend's move. Then the making juices started swirling. As a lot of us probably do, I went to Youtube from some ideas. I looked a Jay Bates most Recent router video...
  10. Home made lathe - solid attempt

    So… I wanted a lathe, but did not want to buy one. Too cheap… So what does a person do? Make your own. I reviewed Matthias Wandel's and Ryan Nodwell's lathe designs on their respective YouTube channels and based on their approach I crafted my version in sketchup. Initially, I designed it as...
  11. New Life for an Old Dresser

    My Fiance asked me to transform with dresser into something she saw on pinterest. I believe it is from the late 70s to early 80s during the mass production of this style oak dressers. Figuring out the bracing support for the seat was the hardest part for me. Sanding off the old varnish took the...
  12. My Wooden Table Saw Fence

    As a hobbyist on a very tight budget, I have to look for bargains in used tools. So when I got the opportunity to pick up a vintage Craftsman saw for $35 to replace my el cheapo jobsite saw, I jumped. Of course the downside of most of these old saws is the frustrating fence (if it's even still...
  13. Kokeshi Doll Salt & Pepper Grinders

    These stylized salt & pepper grinders were made for a relative that decorates in the Japanese style & has a sizable Kokeshi Doll Collection. The bodies of the grinders are just simple straight tubes. The head & shoulder turnings make the grinders knobs. I chose to make them of mahogany, a wood...
  14. DIY Manual Pick And Place Machine

    This is a bit of an unusual project for Lumberjocks.com. One of my other hobbies is electronics. Assembling printed circuit boards using extremely tiny surface mount components is very difficult because of my big fingers and shaking hands. The slightest twitch can be disastrous. This device...
  15. Ohio University Bobcat Sign

    I upgraded from a Dremel router setup to a Bosch Colt Palm Router. Had to use the Dremel for some of the fine detail work. Love my first try with the Bosch Colt. GREAT TOOL! Thanks to JimmyHack for sharing his design. He did this as well with scroll saw. I envy his skills. Here is the...
  16. Portable Mini Smoke Extractor

    Im currently studing electrical engineering, because of that I have to weld wires almost everyday, so yesterday I decided it was time to build a smoke extractor. I grabbed an old small pc fan, a 12v batery, and a switch. I made a small box to mount all the hardware and add some cotton on a net...

  19. Rustic Cabin

    I am not sure if this falls under the woodworking projects umbrella but… it involved a ton of wood and it was definitely work. My Dad and I have been building this hunting cabin for quite some time. The pine trees that were used for the porch columns, rafters, ridge poles and main beam were...
