  1. Gil-Bilt 6"x48" Belt Sander

    A few months ago, a gentleman gave me a partially constructed Gil-Bilt 6"x48" belt sander kit he purchased from Gilliom Mfg. in 1976 and never got around to building. Although parts were fairly rusty and missing hardware from years stored in his barn, it did have complete plans, which made...
  2. Counter Top Wine Rack

    I found an old book that had quite a few projects inside. One that caught my interest was this counter top wine rack. This wine rack is made of Red Oak. It has three coats of semi gloss polyurethane finish. I attached the top shelf, bottom shelf and sides with the Festool Dominos, as well as...
  3. Greene & Greene Inspired Pedalboard

    This pedalboard was commissioned for a guitarist friend of mine. It is constructed of walnut, with a 1/2 birch plywood surface that is captured via stopped dadoes. The pyramid walnut plugs were added for decoration along with the custom logo. The outside is 2" thick at the front and 1" thick...

    Hi guys. I want to continue the theme of making decorations for the lawn. This time I made a small decorative house of the waste that remained in the studio. For the step I used scrap pine. I hope you liked my project on waste. video
  5. Bubinga & Maple Trivet Set

    A bubinga and maple trivet set made as a gift for a social media supporter. The trivets are 6" square in contained in a mitered caddy. My Festool Kapex and 4mm Dominoes made quick work of this project. It was all finished off with a 220 grit sand and some mineral oil...
  6. Simple router compass

    Here is my simple compass for a router. The wholes have a diameter of 30mm and a distance (center to center) of 50mm. It is made of multiplex (I hope it's not only in germany called like this…). To set up every radius I want, I made the center whole movable (the little aluminium profile). It has...
  7. Kitchen Occasional Table

    This table was commissioned by a co-worker for his mother. All the dimensions were determined by the the client including the unusual height. When designing this table, I decided to use long tapers on the inside edges of the legs to give the table less of a blocky look and feel. The table is...
  8. Musical Chair

    So here is my sculpted "Musical Chair". I have really been drawn to the asymmetrical, organic line of Art Nouveau lately and have applied some of what I've learned into a number of recent pieces. This chair is a large studio chair made from ribbon mahogany and tulip poplar. Note that the tulip...
  9. Ipe Shower Bench

    This project is off the Honey-Do list, my wife had requested a shower bench some time ago. About a year and a half ago, I set out to get this done for Valentines Day but it kept getting put off by other projects. It is now finally complete and she is very happy with it (not so happy with the...
  10. Rolling Miter Cart (aka "The Kapex Throne")

    In remodeling my shop, I was able to pick up some Mahogany cutoffs for a very good price. I was building this miter cart at the moment and figured, why not? Made an 8/4 top with 4/4 drawer fronts to contrast the 8/4 maple paneled frame, and threw it all on 3" casters. Even made a cutout on...

  12. Reclaimed pallet wood cutting board (mostly white and red oak)

    The series for this project - here is quite in-depth, so I won't recreate it here. I'll just sum up… I got a stack of slats from a pallet from a local bearing shop all cut up nicely in a stack of 14"-16" pieces. Sorting them, I found many that appeared to be kinds of oak. I ran these over the...
  13. My Version of Tim's MFTC

    Shortly after seeing Tim's MFTC video (on the Festool Users site), I proceeded to purchase a set of plans from him. While the build went relatively smoothly, I encountered problems with finding various items that he used. Specifically, I wound up having to change the adjustable feet on the...
  14. Folding MFT-style Bench with Router Table

    I wanted a portable MFT-style bench that would fit into my SUV but that was lighter than my existing Festool MFT/3 tables. I was about to make a somewhat modified version of Ron Paulk's workbench using plans that I had purchased from him, with the modifications involving making it shorter so...

  16. Pistachio and Spalted Maple Bowl

    Here is a Pistachio and Spalted Maple Lidded Bowl With an Ebony Finial. This turning started as a Hollow Form, (see last pic) Had a small catch on the inside while hollowing. As I was cleaning up the top, I blew a hole through it at the thin spot. So I cut the top off and turned it into a bowl...
  17. Waterfall Edge Bench

    Made a pair of these Waterfall edge Benches for a friend of mine. Made each one from a single board of 8/4 Spalted Hard Maple. Used Dominos for the Joinery and cut the Miters with a Festool TS 75 TS75 The Joinery was a breeze, and I'm glad I got the TS75 over the TS 55 as I basically used the...

  19. Home Brewed Router Table

    This is a router table which I designed following my purchase of an Incra LS17 Positioner. The problem which required the design is that the Incra LS17 requires a "deeper" table than any generally available. The top is simply a piece of melamine into which I routed a place for a Rockler lift...

    Recently Oneida (Dust Deputy company) came out with a custom Dust Deputy Systainer for the Festool Vacs. Already being fed up about buying those expensive Festool bags I was pretty excited about getting one and saving money but then I saw the cost; ~230 bucks. OUCH!! Here's my version of...
