  1. Sawstop dado throat plate with replaceable insert

    When I purchased my saw, I purchased the dado cartridge and Sawstop throat plate. Honestly, I haven't even used it yet since I didn't want to use the throat plate for one size dado and then have to purchase another the next time I needed a dado (I like the idea of zero clearance for dadoes :) )...
  2. Desktop Bag Toss

    This mini indoor version of Baggo or Bean Bag Toss is designed to sit on a desktop or tabletop and well sized for a typical office cube. It is a fairly simple project - easy to build. The free plans are available on our web page here . We also made three videos giving a blow-by-blow account of...
  3. Gallery Pedestal

    There are a group of us that show some of our work at a gallery and we have pedestals that we built and use. I was asked by a friend if I could build him one for a bronze statue with a marble base. Most of these are built as a simple 2×2 frame, screwed together. Then hardboard(masonite) is used...
  4. My First Flag Box

    Here's the first Flag Box I ever built. A couple of mistakes along the way, but hopefully the next one will be better. I learned a few things at least. Thanks go to Rod for both design considerations as well as donations of the plexiglass and the backing. I do like that backing. I'll be ordering...
  5. ZCI from a ZCI

    A couple years back I picked up one of the Leecraft ZCI's and have loved it ever since. It fits my tablesaw perfectly and the adjustment screens make sure I get it dead level. However, at ~$25 a pop it would get expensive to have one for each blade, especially if you think about a dado stack...
  6. Drill Press Table

    Inspired by the way Serge did clamps, and Steve Ramsey did inserts, here's my drill press table. Hardboard laminated onto MDF, 20"x12". Forstner bits and jigsaw to make the slots, as I was too lazy to remove my router from the router table. My hardboard inserts aren't beveled like Steve's...
  7. Bandsaw blade holder

    I bought a bench top bandsaw for Black Friday a couple of years ago (on sale and free shipping). Last year I bought a Grizzly 17 inch bandsaw for resawing etc. I have noticed that all my extra blades end up hanging here, there and everywhere. I usually find them as I am reaching for...
  8. Airbrush Paints Storage

    Necessity is the mother of invention/motivation! I had a problem; too many airbrush paint jars and not enough storage area to effectively use them. I came up with this idea. I used 4 10' PVC pipes cut into 3-1/4" and 2-5/8" lengths. I carefully used PVC pipe cement to attached to each other...
  9. In the round..

    These are a few round cheese boards using the multi generation lamination scheme… The first is sapelle mahogany with a hoop pine accent.. Second is virgin hoop pin with purple heart and narra stripes and narra edges… Third is narra with purple heart and hoop pine… Fourth is same as the third but...
  10. Poor Man Winding Sticks

    Here's a great tool to improve my woodworking skills and results - winding sticks, for free. Since MDF and hardboard are very stable et long lasting materials, I came up with the idea of using them as winding sticks. They require only two 24"-long 3/4"-thick X 1-1/2"-wide MDF and two 24"-long...
  11. Cabinet Space Saver

    Well I guess it's actually a space user. It uses previously unused air space. Cabinets were getting a little crowded so I made a mini shelf for the dessert plates to live over the dinner plates. Sides are 1/4" tempered hardboard, shelf is 1/2' pine. Pin nails and glue join the two sides at...
  12. Stamp Shelves

    So my wife and daughter are into some crafts one of which involves stamps. They had them stored in bins and drawers which held them but it really didn't help them find the stamp or type of stamps they were looking for in the moment. So I came up with the idea of these shelves. First I...
  13. Fairy Doors for J3 Foundation Fundraiser

    Made 5 "Fairy Doors" for the J3 Foundations 2018 Fund Raiser (J3 promotes reading for high risk, under served 4th and 5th graders in Los Angeles - https://www.j3foundationla.org). Each door was the entrance to a different "world" that reading can take someone to. While the doors themselves are...
  14. Finished Work Sink for the New Mud Room

    Southern Yellow pine, Doug Fir, Travertine tile top, fiberglass sink, to be installed soon, wall or cabinet will be on either end so they will not show, stain is golden oak, final finish Danish oil. Rustic construction and look, heavily built (and heavy!) See previous post for construction...
  15. First shop project, other than finishing the shop of course!

    Basic workbench that will, after I make a proper woodworking bench, become my general use bench near my automotive tools. Got the design from a book I purchased & I really like it. Constructed with 2X4's, 3/4 plywood & hardboard, glued & screwed together, with the top being replaceable and...
  16. My Tilting Router Jig + Straight Bit = Raised Panels & More

    I'd like to share my tilting router jig which allows to mill unique edge profiles using simple standard router bits. I believe the only limit is the user's imagination ! The tilting base pivots inwards on a piano hinge to mill edge profiles and outwards to mill inboard edge profiles (two...
  17. Sandpaper Storage Rack

    I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! Please like, share, and if you enjoyed the video subscribe! My solution to storing my sandpaper was not ideal. As you can see in the pictures, the paper has curled from the previous storage method. I make a simple tray style rack...
  18. Cottonwood Bark Fish Key Hook

    Here are some photos of a cottonwood bark carving I did today. It was a Christmas gift for a friend. She was over today baking with The Wife. I carved most of it with her watching. She even carved some of it. She had no idea it was for her until we gave it to her. The board it is mounted...
  19. Storage Shelves

    Weekend project I made with my father. It was originally designed to hold old Tapes and DVDs along with my entertainment centers sub woofer. That's why there is a cutout near the bottom of the unit. Recently, these shelves have been repurposed for shop storage. Can't just throw quality work...
  20. Library Table / Office Table

    These were a for my insurance agent, I moved all my house/auto/shop insurance to a local office in my home town. a few months later he called and asked about some desks. I asked him to come by to discuss these. His original thought was barn wood / reclaimed lumber. i showed him a piece of Qt...
