  1. Knock Down Assembly Platform

    I needed an assembly platform for the shop but space, as always, was at a premium. There was not enough real estate for a fixed unit so I devised one that knocks down for easy storage. The platform is 36" x 36" and sits 18" high. It will be used for assembling chairs and casework. The top...
  2. Bookcase

    My second wood project and my first serious attempt at furniture design and construction is finally (sort of) complete. This bookcase (system) is the result of six months of effort on my part as well as my father, wife, sister-in-law, and especially my father-in-law who aided greatly in the...
  3. New bed

    My wife and I have been wanting to get a different bed for years, but could never agree on what we wanted. We both found a bed that we loved (Nelson bed from an Italian designer), but the problem was it cost $7000. I modified the height of the bed to be lower so that our older dog with bad hips...
  4. Arts & Crafts Pipe Cabinet

    Fumed QS White Oak Pipe Cabinet with vented doors.
  5. $200 Knockdown Workbench

    Finally finished a dedicated woodworking bench. I had looked at several different designs for benches to base mine on and wasn't enamored with any of them. Then I saw Christopher Schwarz's Knockdown Holtzapffel and knew what style to build for my needs. The bench is mostly construction...
  6. 4 in 1 Knock Down Workstation

    So I came across this in Shopnotes Magazine a while back and it has been on my to do list for too long. Well I can finally cross it off. I even made a video of the build if your interested: It's made from a single sheet of plywood and a couple 2×4's and can be made in a single weekend. Next...
  7. Coffee Table

    My very first woodworking project. My wife (then fiancee) was required to build a piece of furniture for her set-building class in college. Instead of just building a prop, we decided to build a table that we could continue to use. The unique aspect of this design is that the legs are not...
  8. Plywood Cutting Table

    This is a knock down plywood cutting station I made. It is a design I found in a woodworking magazine from several years ago, not sure which one. I adapted the design to fit on the shop dog saw horses I made about a month ago. Here is the project posting for that...
  9. Keyed Tenon Shelf

    I made this shelf to hold part of my sister's Pez dispensers collection. I wanted to try my hand at tenons and made it knock down to make it easier to transport for Christmas.
  10. K-D Mission Desk

    My latest big build is this knock-down Mission style desk. I modified plans I found in a book from 1910. I made it deeper (from 12" to 16") to make it more stable and so it fits a 17" laptop inside. It can be taken apart, shipped flat and re-assembled without tools. Simply pull the back up and...
  11. Cherry and Figured Maple Blanket Chest

    The joinery on this project was extremely challenging but fun. Plans are in the April 1998 Fine Woodworking #129 article-"A Blanket Chest with Legs" by John Mcalevey. Top and bottom rails of the front/back are joined with double through mortise and tenons (pegged with maple). Rails of the...
  12. Focus on the Workspace
    I have been working on the design of a workbench made of palet planks and knock down. I have made a model of it on sketchup, and a video about the model. I would love to get some feedback before i start building it. Thanks
  13. Woodworking Skill Share
    I've been working on a miter jig for the table saw and I'm having some trouble with screws in magnolia. The wood is dense, but I wouldn't think any more so than oak. I have 1/4" brass screw inserts that I can't get to seat nicely into this wood. I've increased the whole diameter in 32nds and...
  14. Site Help and Suggestions
    My problem is simple. For some reason when I am typing an entry (like now) I have no spell check and the font is only about size 8. It hasn't always been this way, but it is now. What did I do wrong? When I post the entry it is a larger size again.
  15. Focus on the Workspace
    hey! im new in the forum. im not a proffessional carpenter, i studied building engineering for some years (didnt finish it) and still keep a feeling for structures. I love wood and working with hand powered tools. I live in Sweden and use the metric sistem ;p. And the way i use english is a bit...
