  1. Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander

    Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander My drill press is a small inexpensive bench top type, and until I get a good floor type one I am trying to get the best out of it. One of the first things I did was to change its old pole with a stainless steel one. Why stainless steel...
  2. "Dive-In Movie" Screen - Made from Douglas Fir Scraps and Cardboard Sheets.

    Here's a creative way to use up some scrap wood, cardboard, and extra white paint. It only took about ten minutes to build. We hosted a pool party on Saturday night for my daughter's 12th birthday. We decided to have the pool party in the evening as the temperature is over 100 degrees every...
  3. Mahogany TV stand

    I finally finished my African Mahogany TV stand. I designed it myself. I'm waiting for the knobs, they are on order. If you interested in the design and making of this project I created a blog or you can visit my website which will have the construction in more detail. Angela
  4. Bandsaw inserts holder

    Hi guys, Quick tip here, this is the solution I came up with to keep my bandsaw inserts at hand. Just an MDF box with slots, bolted to the back of the saw. Very handy. If you've been looking for a way to store your blank inserts, well, this is the solution I came up with. Feel free to...
  5. Pine Entertainment Center

    Last year I got tired of having my plasma sitting precariously on a stool and my A/V equipment stacked on the floor. This was my own design built from clear pine from Home Depot. I built this using only a circular saw, a router, a hand saw, and a few sanders, and I built it (unwisely) on the...
  6. My poor excuse for a height adjustable work table

    I have had a height adjustable bench for years, though I will admit mine doesn't have the ease of one recently shown here. Pluses for the $$$$ encumbered is it is a smallish outlay for the stands, but in less than 5 seconds they can be used as stands again, so you are really not out a lot of...
  7. Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

    Here's my completed SawStop and Router Cabinet. I've added foldaway outfeed and infeed tables for safety and versatility. This is based on an amazing similar table by Tedth66, who graciously provided me continual assistance as I built the project. This is a modification of his design, adding a...
  8. Free Disk Sander

    Some time ago I had the opportunity to use a disk sander, I was surprised how useful it could be, but had neither the money nor the space for one, so I had the idea of making a shop built Disk Sander on my lathe; the table is attached to tapped holes in the lathe bed-frame using thumb-screws in...
  9. Overhead Press/Clamp (MACPRESS)

    I made this from an old rusty (but very strong) clamp and a piece of wood from a demolition. My studio has a concrete roof and this is braced against it, so the pressure exerted is considerable, While great as a press for gluing up, I find it invaluable for general clamping as it acts far from...
  10. Simplest small clamp rack - Router bit holder

    Well I am starting organise myself… (Thats a scary thing on its own) Anyway this is just a very simple small clamp rack. Attached to the side of a cupboard, and easy access… (considering everything else.) The router bit holder is on a hinge and swings out for easier access, and so you can see...
  11. Hand cut dovetail and groove experiment

    This is a simple hand cut dovetail box. Usually when we need to make a groove in the boards for slotting in the box bottom and lid, the piece that holds the corner has to have a stopped groove to hide it from showing. To cut it with hand, you have to chisel it out rough and then use a router...
  12. A New Type Of Scrollsaw (MACSCROLL)

    I recently started some projects which I carried out using a router, but I soon realized I needed something like a scrollsaw to clean up the rounded corners etc. However I didnt have one and I wasn't sure if they could cut through 1/2" Walnut easily so I came up with this solution. It cosists...
  13. Knock-Together Portable Trail Camera Mount

    I thought some readers might be interested in this simple little knock-together apparatus which does its job surprisingly well, and cost almost nothing. The pictures should be self-explanatory. If not, just ask and I'll explain in the comments. I have a motioned-triggered 'Trail Camera' to play...
  14. Cigarette box

    Made this the other night. The box is made from oak, the lid is from a scrap of walnut. I found a log about three years ago. The log has been in the basement "drying". I cut a section about six inches long and then took a hatchet to it to get the rough shape for the box. Ran that through the...
  15. Cherry Toy Chest

    This was my grandson's Christmas present and my first project. The wood is Cherry with shellac finish and the design is similar to one I found on the web. This was my first mortise and tennon joinery and resawing and, with a little finessing, it actually came out square. :D
  16. American Flag - End Grain Cutting Board

    This was my first attempt at making an end-grain cutting board, and my fist use of a router. I used the free Cutting Board Designer program recommended on the Woodworking for Mere Mortals site to design and lay out the flag and its dimensions. After watching several cutting board videos (the...

  20. Firewood Rack out of Scrap

    I made this rack out of leftover maple and walnut from a previous project as well as some leftover 1/2" square rod. I put the bottom of the rack about 2 or 3 inches up from the bottom so that i can vacuum under the wood or remove an water from melting ice. The finish is just a natural minwax...
