  1. Panel Carrier & Dolly

    Panel Carrier & Dolly I have to admit that I'm not getting any younger so I need some helpers carrying sheet goods. Out of some old scrap cut offs of whatever I found in front of me I quickly made a Panel Carrier to bring the sheets from the car inside the shop and a Panel Dolly with a clamp at...
  2. This Little Dolly Didn't go to Market

    This little dolly is for my Travel Agent who i call number 1 as she has gone the extra yards for us on deals. I used Wenge & Huon Pine on this one, I think with good effect. I glued up with Tightbond 111 & used cable ties as clamps, very effective. 4 different ones in this sample I band sawed...
  3. These Little Dollys Didn't Stay at Home

    The striped dolly took a lot of gluing up, Titebond 111. the result was ok but the hat chipped out so I had to square off the edges. The other lesson learned was with the other dolly. The dress part only needed short blanks glued in that region to get the different coloured effect, rather than...
  4. Dolly & Dolly Gone Wrong

    I saw these on a website, I think it was 'Pinterest' & decided to have a go turning them up. Fairly simple turnings out of 60X60mm blocks. I glued 3X20mm blocks & zipped them up with cable ties, great for clamping & re-usable. . I cut the corners off to avoid chipout on the lathe. You learn...
  5. Make equipment/workbench/piano dollies using workbench casters

    These dollies are made like piano dollies which you can rent to move pianos. I had a piano to move but also wanted to move my equipment around the shop. You can lift up one end of the cargo to slip the dolly underneath, then do the other end, then wrap a strap around the bottom and press the...
  6. Picnic table for friends

    I decided to build a picnic table as a surprise for some friends last October. I partially assembled it at home then transported it to their house to finish the assembly. By the time I got it assembled it was too late to put the finish on so I decided to come back the next weekend to stain and...
  7. Shop-made dolly: A quick project you could finish in 10 mins - indoors

    My shop is too cold - 15C below zero outside. I didn't want to heat up the shop for a 10-minute project work, so I built this dolly indoors. Materials: Left-over casters, scrap wood, friction tape, 1" dry wall screws, glue, & bungee cord Tools: Power drill & spring clamps
  8. Hollywood to Dollywood

    So we are working on a special project with the Theme Park Dollywood in TN. So here is a replica gift for Dolly of the little childhood home her dad built the family of 12 kids, when she was a girl. I hope to hand it to her in Dollywood this weekend!

  10. Designing Woodworking Projects
    My wife and I have an antique bedroom set, with the bed and dresser. However we want some bed stands to match the dresser. I have a good idea how it's put together, and shouldn't have a problem, except for an unusual piece in the front. Could this have been done with a router, or pre...
  11. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Goodmorning Jocks: Over the weekend I was working on a basic cabinet for my mothers computer printers. While cutting 3/4 dadoes about 1/4 deep in plywood I had trouble with the cut drifting towards the end of the cut as the blade exited the plywood. The back corner of the plywood started...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am building a Air Compressor cart and am at the part of the project where I need to attach the casters and 2 larger wheels in the back of the dolly. I am going to use 2 60D nails as the axle for my wheels and was wondering if anyone has done this before. I was going to simply drill the holes...

    HUGE Eucalyptus score Sheesh. Good thing I have a truck now. I saw a note on craigslist today (online classifieds) that a guy had put "10 to 15 more" eucalyptus logs out in the alleyway behind his house. LA is all blocks split in half by access alleys big enough to drive 2 cars through...

    Walnut Wood - I just need to know... Does anyone else - when working with black walnut - think it smells delicious? I just want to eat it whenever I'm cutting it. I was recently cutting out a ball blank from a glue-up of walnut, maple, and wenge, the latter two of which don't really have a...
