  1. Drill Charging Station

    This was one of my very first shop projects. The initial design was from Jay Bates Drill Charging Station. It grew from there and its sole purpose was to be a location for all of my Porter Cable 20v tools. It was fun to learn how to use pocket holes and some basic woodworking techniques. As my...
  2. Giant Bookshelf

    This is a 9 foot tall bookshelf I made for my wife, it is based on the Jay Bates plans. It is made from 2×12's and the shelves sit in dados, which I cut with a router (certainly a learning experience). The shelf was not stable enough sitting on the floor alone, so I was going to anchor it to the...
  3. Jay Bates 2x4 Barstools

    Three bar-stools from Jay Bates's plans. They are made from 2×4s and half-laps. Pretty simple design though I complicated it by cutting all the joinery by hand. Any excuse I can get to use my new Veritas router plane. These were made for a friend who has three boys (1 + twins) so they needed to...
  4. Jay Bates inspired stepping stool

    Just a quick stool made from some super inexpensive pine. They had a stack of #2 1×12"x2' boards for a buck a piece, so I picked out a few that were mostly straight. Built this for the boss here at work. It's pretty sturdy. Pocket hole joinery just like Jay did in his original video. Nothing to...
  5. Another Ron Paulk Workbench II

    My shop time for the last two weeks has been spent cleaning up, throwing out and rearranging my shop - and building a new workbench. The only tool that didn't get relocated was the router table. The inspiration for this was watching Ron Paulk's Youtube videos on his Workbench for about the...
  6. Chisel Sharpening Station

    Some time ago, Jay Bates shown us the way he sharpens chisels using a $9 set of Harbor Freight diamond sharpening plates. With the need to sharpen all of my chisels, I decided to make his jig and provide details how I made it. Thanks again to Jay for the great idea! Video, more photos, and...
  7. Jay Bates Lumber Rack

    Credit for this project goes to Jay Bates. Watch his video here: I've needed to have a way to organize all of my lumber. Most of it is long cut offs or pallet wood and even some scrap pieces that "maybe I'll use one day…" I can't afford to do most of the plans I've seen, but when I saw Jay...
  8. Focus on the Workspace
    I started building my Jay Bates inspired miter station. It's a work in progress. I need help with three things. First, I made the upper cabinets deep enough to receive 18" drawer slides. I'm looking at this monster growing in my basement and thinking I need to cut down the depth to...

    Alain Vaillancourt AKA The Woodpecker I decided to start a series about the video woodworkers that I enjoy. The vast majority of them are on YouTube, because that's what's available to me. They are put up in no particular order, so there are really no favorites. First up is Alain...

    Cabinet Refinish Earlier this spring, my dad brought over his old cabinets that he'd used for his shop workbench. He's had these longer than I can even remember and is finally upgrading his set up at his shop and offered them to me. I've been wanting to build a miter saw station and was...

    GREAT!! http://www.youtube.com/v//ScoH6VOcsTc&showsearch=0&fs=1&rel=0&autoplay=0 View on YouTube I had an amazing time at Woodworking in America. This was my first time there and I wasn't 100% sure what to expect. As always, one of my biggest concerns was meeting and hanging out with new...
  12. Wood & Lumber
    Hi All, I'm a beginner and this is my 2nd case good project, the first out of walnut. I wanted to chase the grain around the sides and front. I bought rough lumber and chose the 3 widest boards so I would ply have to use 3. But after milling, they look like 3 different wood species! I can't...
