  2. Making a Plinko Bottle Opener - Drinko

    My sister wanted me to make a Drinko game for her for a charity gold tournament. I had never done one before and I didn't consult any plans but it seemed easy enough. She sent me a pinterest picture with 3" spacing of the nails and some dimensions to work off of and I had at it. Word to the...
  3. Modern Coat Rack I Made In Just A Few Hours

    Simple DIY Coatrack Build I built this simple DIY coatrack in less than one day, using just a 2×4 and a hardwood dowel. I happened to have a drill press on my Shopsmith so I used that, but a drill with a drill guide (about $20 from Harbor Freight) can do the job just about as well. This...

  7. Super Easy Workbench

    I built this workbench and made a video and article about it. When I first started out (even before woodworking…just working on home and auto projects), everything out there was so darned complicated, I quickly become frustrated and thrown something very rickety together just to make due...
  8. Pseudobook Bookends

    Made this out of some scrap oak, walnut, mahogany, and cherry. Various woods used for inlay. Of course, once the family saw it, had to make a few more. Fun little project. Finished with a couple of coats of poly and hand rubbed wax. If you build these and they slide on the surface you place...

    Ben and I made this fish trivet from red oak. Yesterday we cut all the parts and glued up the assembly. After the glue was hard, we sanded it. This morning we cut out the outline, drilled the eye-hole, and did final sanding. We applied mineral oil as a protective finish. Ben will give this...

    Reclaimed Wood Desk Organizer Recently, I saw some pieces of wood with holes cut into them for sale online. The asking price was $70. This seemed totally outrageous to me.
