  1. Mobile Drill Guide Stand

    Mobile Drill Guide Stand. Many times I had the need to drill vertical holes with a drill bit, a forstner bit or a holesaw that the surface did not fit on my drill press. At first I designed a vertical drill guide stand based on dovetail slides, but been able to find a 30cm drawer guide that...
  2. Pocket Hole Joinery Assembly Fixture

    Holding pocket hole joinery components on edge has always been an issue, therefore a new jig. And here is mine. I've used Melamine because glue won't stick to it, and I had everything in my scrap bins. As shown, I've taken advantage of a groove already milled on the back by adding a cleat so it...
  3. Maple Workbench

    I decided to build a workbench for my dad because he has never really had a nice surface to work off of. So I started this project which is built from hard white maple. The top is 1 3/4" thick hard maple face glued in 1 3/4" sections. It is 30" wide and 72" long. The skirts are 3 1/2" maple. I...
  4. Framed Mirror

    A framed project is just one of those projects that every woodworker has to do in their lifetime. Right up there with a workbench, cutting board(which I still haven't made) and an adirondack chair. This project came to me via a family member who had a large mirror and wanted to build a frame...
  5. Apple Bird Feeder

    These are 6 piece bird feeders that took about 30 minutes to make. Got the idea out of a scroll saw magazine. There is a peanut butter recipe that you can use also to feed the squirrels with. I think the apple is easier and less expensive though.
  6. Wood Boring Bee Trap

    wood boring bee traps from cedar & pine . They are chewing holes in my Log Home ! Again !
  7. Bandsägenbox

    Zum Geburtstag für meine Frau schnell angefertigt. :-)
  8. Fungus Box

    I love boxes with unique grains and features. This one is made with maple. It has eye catching designs throughout. The wood is referred to as "Ambrosia Maple." Now you might think ambrosia is a type of maple. Maybe even a type of wood… but it's not. Ambrosia is a beetle that burrows into...
  9. Serving Tray

    I designed this tray for a couple as a gift. It's made of cherry, birdseye maple with a bubinga trim.
  10. Fireplace Mantle Entertainment Center

    Hello All, When we moved into this house the living room fireplace kind of stuck out into the room not lending itself to any sort of "Traditional" entertainment center. We initially had two cheap cabinets on either side to hold our electronics and the TV just sat on top of the mantle but that...
  11. Lumberjock Bee Trap

    I don't mind carpenters hanging around my shop drinking my beer, but when they start chewing holes in my deck, I get annoyed. To prevent Carpenter Bees from digging holes in my new screened in porch made primarily of cedar, I found a few references online to this type of trap. The concept is...
  12. Honey Dippers

    Just a couple of honey dippers that I made for my wife. She liked the padauk one too much to use it, so I made one out of maple. The soft red maple really had a hard time with the skew, and I had to redo the head of the dipper because of gouges. Thanks for looking!
  13. Small Oak Bookcase

    Oak bookcase made with oak plywood for sides and shelves (with solid facings). I used solid oak for top and trim. This was my first project using a Kreg pocket hole jig which really speeded up the construction and was nice to use. It was finished with poly. I wanted a bookcase that would fit in...
  14. A Distressed Wall | Entertainment Center

    This is a custom wall system. It is built similar to an entertainment center, but this one will be used for just storage. A few thing to note that I did on this project. The first is the pocket doors and adjustable shelves combination. Normally the recess movement pocket doors interfere...
  15. Turner's Cart

    As you can see from my shop picture (see shot #4), I am cramped into one bay of a three car garage. Since I keep purchasing tools, I have resorted to rolling carts that I can pull in and out of the second car port. This project is my turning tools cart. I have a Rikon midi lathe, a slow speed...
  16. Segmented Wine Bottle Stopper #23 - Patchwork

    Visit my Etsy store to see the available wine bottle stoppers Project Description This segemented stopper is my fifteenth completed project in my June 2009 "30 Projects in 30 Days" challenge. Building these stoppers has been a lot of fun for me. Each design element allows for a number of...
  17. Ball Drilling Jig

    When I was making my radial wave lamp, I needed to come up with a way to drill accurate holes through wooden balls. So I came up with this "clothespin" solution. I mounted a short board with a slot to a longer board and then drilled a hole with my variable-diameter hole saw. The hole saw's...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey all, I'm looking for a drill press, but don't want to sink a ton of money into it. Woodworking is getting expensive! Looking at this cheap drill press from HF: http://www.harborfreight.com/8-in-5-speed-bench-drill-press-60238.html I don't see many other options under the $100 range. Most...
  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have a large "cookie" cross section of a Siberian Elm tree that I am prepping to become a coffee table. There are some areas in the slab, however, that have holes clear through to the other side. Not sure what caused them-rot, insects, wind shake, etc. But some of them are large enough to...
  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    As much as I've learned about SU, alignment of holes has seemed to elude me until now. Imagine trying to place these two parts on one another while aligning these two different size holes. I came up with a technique to aid me with this problem. Maybe others have used this technique, but I've...
