  1. Centennial Vise Restoration

    I bought and restored this honey of an antique vise to use on the workbench I'm working on, other than many many hours of patiently degreasing, derusting, and otherwise fiddling with this big heavy lady there's not much to tell. The end result slides smoothly, engages when it ought to, and...
  2. 45mm End Grain Chopping Board / Butchers Block

    Most wooden chopping boards are made from long grain timbers. Whilst species dependent, long grain tends to be hard and close knit. The surface is subject to marking and scoring and will quickly blunt the keenest knife edge. End grain, on the other hand, will open to allow the knife to penetrate...
  3. 3 tiered plant holder thing

    Not a lot of pictures for this one as I am sure everyone has made something similar. Basically it's a modified version of the plant stand published in issue #177 of Wood Magazine others on this forum have followed. The structural frame is made of cedar 2×4's which I sanded and sealed, the shelf...
  4. Glue bottle box!

    I bought a new glue bottle, the one with all the different tips and I just had to have a nice place to keep those tips. Of course I had to decorate it. Enjoy!

    For a 4th of July present to my best friend I made him his own set of cornhole boards and score board It's very simple to make only requires (2) 2'x4' plywood (4) 2"x4" wood Some screws I used pocket hole screws so as that you don't see the screws Glue It came awesome and with a little help...
  6. Candy Cart

    Sometimes you just feel the need to make something just because you want to. And that's OK. There used to be a lady at work who would keep the office stocked up on candy. Kelly the Candy Lady, I would call her. I even made up a candy sign to keep at her desk. I then thought it would be neat to...
  7. Bar Clamp Holder Extension

    I bought some new Bessey clamps from Rockler and the first thing I had to do was to find a place to store them. My first thought was to build a new hanger somewhere in my small 2 car garage workshop, but I did not want the clamps to be stored at multi places so I finally decided to extend the...
  8. guitar bridge acoustic

    this was an attempt to salvage a good necked guitar from a damaged splintered bridge and internal rib missing. it sort of humms when played with vigor. good to practice on needs refining though i have kinda given up the idea of screws in the bridge. you can see the glue risidual is unsanded and...
  9. Press - to flatten edge glue ups

    I've got to thank RunningDan for this. He couldn't have posted that at a better time because I was going to need these very soon. I made 4 of them each 2 feet long and 18 inches wide. I made up some squares to help with spacing and alignment during glue up.
  10. Storage Bin for Scrap Metal

    Scrap metal storage bin - I built for the barn. I know I could have made this from many different types of material, but I chose wood (2×4 split). I could have put it together make different ways, but I chose pocket holes screws with glue and it came out very strong and square, better than some...
  11. Imitation Cedar 2x4 Challenge Shoe Bench

    My last time trying to do real woodworking with construction lumber in a long while. Entry for the current Reddit woodworking 2×4 challenge. Huge exercise in frustration trying to make the wood do stuff it just didn't want to, but the end result is sturdy enough for 250 pounds on top and for...
  12. Glue/Paper Towel Station

    Another project for my wall cleat system. This plan came from Wood Magazine's Idea Shop #5. It is made from 1/2" plywood for the sides and dividers, 1/4" plywood for the bottom, and 3/4" hardwood for the front and back. The plan called for 1/2" front and back and 3/4" dowel. I used a 9/16"...
  13. Knoty pine computer desk

    Good pine furniture is hard to find, and my daughter wanted a computer desk for their Lake Tahoe home. I built it in two peices to make it easier to move.
  14. Glue Bottle Stand

    I was fighting with some cold glue yesterday (I turn back the t-stat to about 50 when I'm not in the shop) and decided to turn my cursing into creativity. I had a cutoff from an old glue up, cut it to shape, and bored a two step hole in the top to perfectly fit the cap of my glue bottle. I have...
  15. Military Coin Display

    This is a coin display made for a friend. His boss was recently promoted and this is to be a promotion gift. I chose European beech and American black walnut for a nice contrast. Under florescent light, the beech is not as reddish orange color you see in the first picture. Natural light...
  16. Knife block

    My sweetie had her kitchen knives just rattling around loose in a drawer. Drove me a little nuts, and they were always dull. So I made her a block that will hold them in the drawer in front of the silverware tray. Nothing too fancy. Just 11 strips of cherry sandwiching ten strips of maple, glue...
  17. Glue Tool Holder Thing

    I picked up this silicone pad and some glue tools from Rockler a few months back and they have been such an amazing addition to my glueup workflow. Since getting them I've used them on every project I've made and don't see myself ever not using them so I wanted to make a little caddy type thing...
  18. Wooden Hair Clips

    First, I started by re-sawing some cutoffs and turning blocks I had around the shop. This was mulberry, walnut, sycamore, pine and some dogwood. I passed each piece through the planer to give it a good gluing surface. Then arranged the pieces and glued them together. After the glue dried I...
  19. Scrappy End Table

    What do you do with all those leftover scraps of 3/4 inch wood from a summers worth of projects? You glue them all together and make an end table that looks like it took days of planning and work. Even with the 100 pieces and tapered legs, this project took me less then 10 hours. The center...
  20. Information Sign Board w/ Magnetic Frames

    This is another project for the summer camp I work at. It is a sign board that displays the pictures/cell phone numbers of our 3 staff hosts on duty, it has two 8.5×11 frames for general group information/schedule, and it has a weatherproof literature box to hold our camp maps. This is one of...
