  1. Shop Project - Organizer Cabinet

    I have wanted to do this project for awhile. I try to be organized by having these Stanley 10-Compartment Professional Deep Organizers for screws, bolts, hinges, etc… The problem is they all stacked on top of each other and I always seemed a need a part or screw in the organizer stacked on the...
  2. Basket Lid

    My mother-in-law wanted a lid to use as a table topper for a very large basket that she has in her living room. The top is 3' in diameter. It was cut from plywood using a router, straight bit and a homemade circle cutter. I applied edge banding and finished with a natural stain and polyurethane...
  3. sliding spice rack

    The final touch on my mom's kitchen work. This spice rack was supposed to be finished in July, but now is. this vertical (spice drawer) is held in place with aspen runners mounted on center of birch edge banded 1/2" ply and 3/4" ply with solid oak. The face board was profiled with an roman ogee...
  4. My first bookshelf--lessons learned

    This was my first major piece of furniture. The only power tools I had were a circular saw, a cordless drill, and a palm sander. It lived in my office unfinished for several months because I ran out of time before finishing it. I wanted to post it only because it reminds me how much I have...
  5. Christmas corner shelves

    Anybody ever see one of these before? They are in the general shape of a Christmas tree, go into a corner and people decorate them with garland etc and put on the shelves scenes of people in a town in winter, including what I would assume is dolls and doll house furniture. A young lady put an ad...
  6. Floating Vanity

    I've been going through a major remodel over the past few months that included a brand new powder room. The bathroom is pretty narrow so I wanted a small custom wall hung vanity to fit with my vessel sink and wall faucet. What looks like a simple box turned out to be quite an interesting...
  7. Paper Roll Unit & Organiser

    Since I had a few panels of oak MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) I decided to use that, I usually don't like using MDF because its not a very strong material and its as bad or worse than plywood with the exposed edges. That is why I also decided to use solid oak edge banding on all exposed edges...
  8. Sanding Station

    This is a sanding station I made specifically to create a co-planer space for my Flat Master v-sander and my oscillating sander to sit on that allowed out feet onto my assembly table. The carcass is 3/4 ply, held together with pocket hole screws. I banded all the edges with walnut for color...
  9. Modern credenza

    This one isn't our usual quality but it was built to the designers plans. I like the style, just not the edge banded mdf. 3/4" white oak throughout. Finished with GF black wood stain and 3 coats of GF high performance in flat. 120 degree soft close euro hinges (inset and full overlay). The...
  10. RAS Table and Fence

    Bought a Delta 33-890 12" Radial Arm Saw, came without a table. I despise MDF, but that is the ideal material for the table, so I went with it, and then edge banded to make it more acceptable. :) Glued 3/4" walnut and oak dowels through the MDF where the hardware mounts, since MDF tears...

    lion burned on a maple slab. dab of color on eyes. tiger on maple slab colored with colored pencil litehouse is carved in basswood. painted with acrylics hope you like them. have more new ones up soon.
  12. Hungarian Shelves

    I inherited a large number of books this winter, so I needed more shelf space. I built another set of shelves like this one on the opposite wall several years ago, so the process went pretty smoothly. Differences on this set were one less shelf so taller books would fit, and I used oak edge...
  13. Edge Band Sanding Block

    Problem: I have some project pieces on my current project that have edge banding on the plywood. These need final sanding before I can stain them. Resolution: I hope this is the resolution. I saw this sanding tip on an episode of The Woodsmith Shop. I have some pieces with 5/16 inch edges...
  14. Lap Top for a Lap Top

    My wife likes to use her lap top computer while she's in her recliner. But, quite often she keeps readjusting the computer on her legs because it gets uncomfortable after a few minutes. So, I thought I would make her this collapsible lap top desk for her lap top. It's made of 3/4" Birch...
  15. Live Edge Sells Great for me

    I have had great luck with my live edge work this year so far. Everyone seems to really like the live edge. So on this board I desided to use some. The Board is 18 1/2" x 12 1/2 at it wides point. The woods are Padauk / Maple Walnut and Purple heart center. I think this is my favoret board I...
  16. A Pair of Walnut Bedside Tables

    This is my first piece of furniture made out of walnut and I really like the color (without having to stain it!). I'm also a fan of the modern/contemporary style furniture that have lots of clean, straight edges with almost a minimalist touch. I had to buy 3/4" walnut plywood which was pretty...
  17. edge bander

    Here is a how i built it on youtube: WARNING! heat guns get very hot!! there is a definite fire danger because of the materials used in this project!! I used a bed caster wheel for the roller which is probably not the best material because of the direct heat. A piece of 1" steel round stock...
  18. shop made edge banding machine

    This is my shop made edge banding machine its made of scrap plywood,a small spindal roller and a cheap heat gun it works very well. I am working on a new one that is going to be better, my plan is to add two heat gun so I can feed the plywood faster thank you and hope you guys like it
  19. Pergola

    Most of my projects are a bit larger than last weekend's mini cutting boards. Here is a pergola I built a few years ago to provide a little shade on the back patio. It was based on a pergola/archway in Fine Homebuilding. I have done several decks before, but this was my first pergola. This...
  20. Pantry Shelves

    First project here. My wife thought a functional pantry closet would be a wonderful thing. I set about designing the shelving in SolidWorks (I work at an engineering firm) and after a few iterations we chose this design. The construction is quite simple but I think it's an approach that works...
