  2. Pens for a Craft Show

  3. Garage Cabinets

    I just needed some extra garage storage for all those random items that go with owning a house such as; paint cans. God, the paint cans. I wanted something simple, without frames, and easy on the pocketbook of course. I managed to build all three of these cabinets, including the center yard...
  4. Bookcase/TV stand

    So we moved into a new home that has a bar in the basement complete with an entertainment area. Lots of boxes filled with books and nowhere to put the TV.

  7. Cherry L-Shaped Computer Desk

    Completed November 2002. I saw simple designs in high-end computer desks while stationed in Germany. I knew that I could adapt the concept in my favorite modern Shaker style. Here's the design. The L-shape really defines the boundaries of a work space and does a great job of splitting up a...

  10. zero clearance "inset" for a slider

    the original inset of my slider was getting worn out as you can see on the pics, cutoffs had a tendency to be pulled in between the blade and they would at best clog up the DC or at worst jam the blade. on these panelsaws with sliders that slide next to the blade, there is no real inset, just a...
