  1. Planner Stand and Rigid Sander Cart with Dust Collection

    I just finished another workshop project. I took apart one of the first cabinets I built and replaced it with this cart/cabinet. For anyone that owns a Rigid Sander they know the dust it creates so I wanted to design something that would help control the dust. I'm surprise how well this works. I...
  2. Sandpaper Storage Chest

    Well I had two problems in my shop, I had this piece of 1/2" plywood that was just constantly in the way, and I had a really crappy way of storing my sandpaper. All of it was piled into one rectangular plastic bin. I finally decided on something that would help relieve me of both issues. I've...
  3. Screw Organiser

    I saw this idea on Pinterest and I figured it was a great way of organizing screw boxes.. I adapted the design to my screw box size. It's basically a 11"x 21.5" x 3/4" plywood stock I had lying around the shop .. I placed a series of dados every 2" . Then cut 2 sides at 2.25" for the sides...
  4. The cookie cutter

    It started good, then…Dad tried to put it on the tennen a little too hard… I yelled at him, mom thought someone stepped on the cat when i when inside! He fixed it with some glue though(as you can see, the glue line doesn't look very pretty inside it).
  5. Whiskey Barrel Flag

    After finishing up my barrel table I had some staves left so I decided to make a flag. The stars section is made from some old white oak flooring I had and then I traced out the stars and went to work with a chisel. The stars didn't come out great but I guess it's a learning process. :)...
  6. Floating Shelves

    The design for these shelves came from a Chris Schwarz article in Woodworking Magazine (spring 2009). My shelves are made of poplar. These were quick and easy to build, although the miters in the front corners can be a little tricky, for me anyway. Thanks for looking. Questions and comments...

    When my daughter was born, I made a hope chest for her 1st birthday so she would have something she could grow with her whole life, storing toys in the beginning and maybe blankets or something as an adult. Now we have another on the way and I'm thinking of what I'll make. If it's a girl, I'll...

  10. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking

    Evening everyone, I have myself a dilema, the good sort I reckon. I need to make some sort of piece out of these slabs to put in a auction for our school later this month. I had originally thought about turquoise epoxy to full the small holes but turns out after drying the rotted wood just...

    Can any one give me advice on the best way of going about making teak grating for a yacht? I have a table saw, but will not take a dado. I have a 1/4'' 1000w router and am toying with buying the 1/2'' Triton TRA001 router which has much more power, but of course is a pretty heavy cost for what...

Days go by, weeks still nothing. Even a plan can't help cuz you don't want to coppy anyone's stuff even if...

    My wife owns a horse, which she keeps at a barn/stable near us. As part of her fees, she gets a small cupboard/closet, which consists of a space about 6 feet high, 2 feet wide and 2 feet deep. It has two shelves, one about a foot off the bottom and one about a foot down from the top. There is...
