  1. Projects Workbench/track saw cutting table

    I wanted a portable bench that could be used as a cutting table with the track saw. Some of the things I wanted with the bench was clamping ability, a vertical sliding fence and, a track saw track hinge mounting and support. I started with two Kreg Track Horses and then built a frame for the...
  2. My "Pain in the Butt!" Pallet Bed Project

    As many of you woodworkers can attest to - if your significant other asks, your significant other gets! That was the case with this project - a first for me working with pallets. The girlfriend wanted a rustic pallet bed frame, so I was off to the races planning and sourcing my materials. Now...
  3. I <3 Oregon 7

    I had another request for my Oregon designed jewelry box, this one from my buddy who just recently celebrated his first year with his girlfriend. He said he wanted to get some kinda western themed design to it if I could, and this is what I had in mind! The majority of the box is douglas fir...

  5. Reclaimed douglas fir Table

    This table was built from reclaimed Douglas fir beams from an old torn down grain elevator up here in Alberta, Canada. The beams were massive 20"x20" by 18 feet. Luckily when I showed up, to pick them up, a portable saw mill was on-site and cut them into manageable sizes for me, however, the...

  7. "Dive-In Movie" Screen - Made from Douglas Fir Scraps and Cardboard Sheets.

    Here's a creative way to use up some scrap wood, cardboard, and extra white paint. It only took about ten minutes to build. We hosted a pool party on Saturday night for my daughter's 12th birthday. We decided to have the pool party in the evening as the temperature is over 100 degrees every...
  8. Patio Planter Boxes

    I built these planter boxes from plans in Woodsmith Magazine's Outdoor Furniture book. I like the way they turned out and apparently, so do my friends and neighbors who kept stopping by my garage to see my progress. I have already been hired buy one neighbor to build a toy box in the same...
  9. Cajon #1 is special

    Easily the one thing I've made more times than anything else is cajons. I've just never posted them here. When I started woodworking, it was because I wanted to make musical instruments. Then I fell down the rabbit hole of everything else you could make with wood (SOOOOO MUCH!) and the only...
  10. A Nice Down Sized Workbench

    I helped a friend of mine build this work bench for his 10×20 workshop. The bench is 18in wide and 72in long. Space was a necessity so only usable 18in top was good. Made of vertical grain Douglas Fir with a store bought top called rubber wood I know is best as Ramen. The vise was...
  11. Arts & Crafts Picture Frame

    Here is another water colour painting by my brother Matthew called 'Evening Sail Off Tsehum Harbour'. The frame is built of old growth Douglas Fir and Yellow Cedar with Sapele accents. I decided to cut the mat and install the glass myself, rather than taking it to another shop. I'm stoked with...

  14. Endgrain Floor in Bathroom

    NOTE TO THOSE WHO WANT TO DO THIS… Please don't use regular grout like me. The wood shrinks slightly and is allowed to move because of the urethane adhesive remaining pliable. There's tiny little cracks where the wood has separated on the outer tiles in the room. It's not going to weather well...
  15. Queen Jewelry Box

    This was a completely original design. I wanted to try a few things that I have seen, but hadn't attempted yet. The "hidden" drawer in the side of the top main drawer was a good learning experience and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Also, this was the first time I tried giving the...
  16. Mudroom bench

    I put together this bench for my familyroom that my family uses as a mudroom. They always dump their stuff in this corner near the door in from the Garage so i figured I'd make this bench to TRY and make things a bit more organized. I built this from two 2×10x8' pieces of Douglas Fir...
  17. Simple Tablet Stand from a 2x4

    I built a new desk! ( . . . which I'll post later) I needed something to hold my tablet while I enjoy some multi-screen goodness. This is a really simple solution I came up with: A really clean chunk of quarter-sawn douglas from a 2×4, a small hole, a dado on one side the width of a USB cable...
  18. Card Scraper till

    I guess you could say this is another installment in tills for the space challenged shop. ;-) I got the idea from a picture I found in a magazine shops, could have been fine woodworking. I had planed to put another shelf below it to hold my card scraper sharping jigs but decided to change the...

  20. Pallet coffee table

    This coffee table was made from a couple pallets I found. Usually there are gaps on pallets but I lucked out and found a couple that had no gaps for the most part except on the ends, no problem just took the skilsaw and cut those parts off. Then I trimmed out the sides with Douglas Fir 2×6 for...
