  1. Changing Attachment on Custom Dresser

    Built in our Wood Buddies shop at the request of the son and daughter-in-law of my wood buddy. The unit had to have certain dimensions and a set number of drawers. They requested we design it so in the future it could be used as a dresser with a mirror. The last picture shows how we attached...
  2. Toy Chest

    Toy chest built in the Wood Buddies shop for my sisters three year old grandson. The plans have been around for years and were purchased before Woodcraft took over selling them. Our R-tist in residence chose the fabric and painted the laser cut letters. My wood buddy has done upholstery...
  3. Hope or Blanket Chest

    This is an African Cherry (Makore) Hope / Blanket chest lined with 5/16" thick Tongue & Groove Aromatic Cedar closet liner. Plans came from Woodcraft #FD-162 item #151551. Makore was purchased from now closed exotic lumber dealer in N.E. Alabama. Closet liner came from Home Depot. Hardware...
  4. Captain's Writing Desk

    An old looking captain's (ships pirate) writing desk was built in the Wood Buddies Shop for my nephew's four year old son who is apprenticing as a future pirate. To make sure the lid would not fall on his fingers or other body parts when reaching into the desk, curved friction lid supports were...
  5. Toys and Joys “Green” tractor

    This tractor is another Toys and Joys plan. This is made of northern white hard maple. The front wheels are purchased along with misc dowels that are then fabricated for various parts. I gifted this to my brother in law. His father had recently passed away and they still have a John Deere B in...
  6. Toys and Joys UTV

    Here are a pair of Gators using yet another Toys and Joys plan. I started these way too late this spring. The weather turned to summer in Minnesota early this year. I will still do shop projects in the summer, but I like to have the models wrapped up in March. These were completed in mid May and...
  7. Trundle Bed

    My wood buddy and I designed and built a trundle bed for his grand kids when they visit. The design is our interpretation of the Greene & Greene style. The side aprons and bottoms are Birch plywood while Alder is used for the head and foot sections. The construction joinery consisted of dowels...
  8. Improved adapters for BELT SANDING UNIT, to vertical and edge sanding.

    I wan't going to post this project as I presented the idea in my last post half way through the day, but since I went back and totally rebuilt the adapters, and many may not have seen it earlier in the day. I have pretty well beat this sander unit idea to death, but someone still may be want to...
  9. Cherry End Tables with Granite Tops

    I built these at the same time as the Cherry Nesting Tables, since they followed the same design. They reside beside the chairs we sit in in the evening, as we read or watch television. They're solid cherry, with ply side and back panels. Joinery is loose tenon (and grooves for the panels)...
  10. High track dozer

    Here is the high track dozer I built from a Toys and Joys plan. I used northern white hard maple in this build. I used black walnut for the seat and makore for the track pads. Generally I use cherry for the tracks but I had some thin makore so I decided to go with that for this one. I finish my...
  11. Inlays on 3 Jewelry Box Lids

    These are the inlays I built on three jewelry box lids. The inlay kits were provided by EZInlays.com. The power tools I used to make the inlays included a plunge router, RO sander, and a Dremel. I also used a fair amount of double sided duct tape for the builds. Nothing better for preparing...

  12. Dining Room Table & Bench

    My wood buddy and I are back on the road to better health after several years. His daughter-in-law wanted a table for her dining room with a bench. She requested the table top look similar to the conference room table seen in the TV series Scandal. This is our interpretation with me taking the...
  13. Anybody got a pen?

    ...and to think I have been warning my kids about obsessive/ compulsive behavior associated with "World of Warcraft"! But hey, this is different….right? I found it kind of amusing that I spent a fair stack of cash on finishes and ended liking the clear "Pledge" floor sealer/finish about as well...

  14. Pine and tile fireplace surround

    This was part of an addition job I did years ago. I built a 20 by 30 addition on the back of a house from the ground up. The customer bought this stove for the space and asked what I could do to spruce up the area. When he came home from work this is what was there.
  15. Chip and Dip Tray

    I made this tray for my mother in law for Christmas one year. Its made from maple and some cherry scraps. I posted a few picture so you can see the steps. Its not hard at all to do with a template and a top bearing flush trim bit. Not necessary, but helpful to speed up the process, I used a...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a Delta Edge Sander that runs nicely and does a reasonable job. Unfortunately it doesn't oscillate, nor does it have spindle capability other than the drive drums. It does have pattern sanding capability on one side but I've used that very little. I'm thinking of selling this machine...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I just bought the two of these for $250.00. A guy, who owned a box making factory, gave these and a 38" thickness sander to the local junk yard. A friend beat me to the thickness sander [and that's how I learned about these (now I have to help him install a 240 outlet for his sander)]. The...
  18. Jigs & Fixtures
    Looking for a recent project where a guy made a carriage for a HF disk/belt sander that tillts it to sand edges. Should have favorited it, but didn't. It was fairly recent and I think on this site. It was a nice piece of work worth attempting. Thanks all.
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi folks, I'm new to the forum and woodwork in general so apologies in advance for my ignorance on the topic. Having just purchased our first home, my partner and I are looking to restore the original wooden floor in the reception and living room. I've been watching a few videos on youtube and...
