  1. Custom Fence Extension for Miter Saw

    June, 2012-On a recent project I needed to cross-cut multiple pieces to the exact same length. Measuring and cutting each piece individually got old fast. So I decided to build an extension fence for my DeWalt miter saw. The fence is on the left side of the saw. Two pieces are store-bought...
  2. Kreg Jig Portable Workstation

    The Kreg Jig is mounted to a small board which nests in the workstation. This workstation gives support to your wood as you work. It contains five storage compartments behind three sliding doors. These compartment store screws, bits, drills, clamps, and the jig itself. It can also house the Kreg...
  3. Wall-Mount Lumber Rack (Mullet-Style)

    How to Build a Wall-Mount Lumber Rack (on YouTube) My workshop will always need to be a garage first and woodworking shop second. To help with my lumber storage, I decided to build my own lumber rack. I scoured Pinterest for ideas, but I couldn't quite find a design that mounted to a wall while...
  4. How to build a cheap woodworking workbench using a Kreg HD jig - its an island stye workbench

    This is my first Youtube project, take a look and let me know what you think. Warren from One Wood Tools shows how to build a cheap and easy island woodworking workbench with dog holes, joints are made using the Kreg HD pocket hole jig. This project cost me a little over $100 and can be made...
  5. Dog Bench

    This is a bench that I made for our dog. It gives him a place to sleep and also allows him to look out the window. My wife is making a proper pad for the top of it. It is made of solid oak for the frame and oak plywood for the rest. I used the Kreg jig exclusively for joinery and loved it. The...
  6. Sofa Table

    May, 2009-My wife wanted a sofa table that would be as wide as our new sofa, and dark in color to match the other furniture pieces in the living room. I decided to use some of the engineered hardwood flooring that was left over from when we had flooring installed. The "engineered" flooring is...
  7. 3rd Bday Gifts

    Well as I mentioned in my previous post my daughter's 3rd birthday is coming up (in fact her party is tomorrow) Her mother and I both decided to make things for her. So here are my two contributions. The stool is made of standard pine and of course pu ttogether with Kreg joints. It is being...
  8. Kreg Jig Workcenter

    This project was in the March 2011 issue of Wood magazine. This is a great workcenter when working with longer material. No more balancing the wood on the jig, which wasn't a huge problem anyway. It's also a great storage organizer. I'm able to keep everything together, but separate. It's great...
  9. Drill Press Table

    So my old drill press from Harbor Press crapped out so I sold it for parts… I saw a Wen 10" benchtop drill press so I got it and I'm glad I did but the old table will not fit it now. I got the plans online you can see the plans and video here Materials Needed: (2) 3/4" plywood with dimensions...
  10. Kreg/DowelMax Router Table

    What, you don't have one of these? :) Storage galore, perfect for the, ahem, efficient workshop. I bought the Kreg table as a clearance floor model from the Woodcraft and had plenty left over for the DowelMax lift which I really like. The instructions are a bit cryptic and it and it takes a...
  11. Murphy bed and shelves - plywood behemoth

    I told my son last year that I'd build him a Murphy bed and I finished it yesterday. This project is more construction than craftsmanship without a doubt. The plans for the bed portion came with the hardware which I bought online from Lee Valley. I had no plans for the shelves and drawers...
  12. Night Stands with Kreg PHJ

    My first attempt at furniture. Nothing fancy, but turned out pretty good. Love the Kreg PHJ !!! All is solid red oak, except 1/4 oak plywood back and poplar drawer boxes. Designed to be used with or without the drawers. Made exclusively with the Kreg Pocket Hole Jig, even the drawer box. Only...
  13. Tile Top Patio End Table w/ Sketchup model

    This is a simple project I tackled last weekend. I recently built a Morris Chair for my patio. I needed a table to go with it. I found the plans for this little guy at Woodsmith Shop. I built this one out of the same batch of Cypress I used for the Morris Chair. I really like the Tile Top. Down...
  14. New Pantry and New Tool

    So Saturday night I hear my DW yelling something about come upstairs. Of course since I was in my shop it was a bit hard to understand. When I got there I found her in the pantry holding up the wire shelving racks which had decided to break loose from the wall. I quickly got all breakable items...
  15. Dimensional Furniture- The Side Table

    I present piece number 6 of my office suite, the side table. This piece has been in the works for a bit but I finally finished it up this week. Like the rest of my furniture it is all made from dimensional lumber and stained with General Finishes Antique Oak. This project was a challenge for me...
  16. Desktop Bookcase for work

    I needed a book case at work. Looked through many catalogs of office furniture, didn't see any that I liked. They all kind of had that dreary look to them (those that work in a cubicle might understand what I'm trying to say). I needed something that would fit on my desk and fit all the books...
  17. Learning Tower

    My sister asked me to build them a learning tower for my nephew to use in the kitchen. I hadn't heard of a learning tower before. Basically it's an enclosed stool and the platform on the inside can be raised or lowered based on the height of the child. The last photo is what she sent me to base...
  18. Wishing Well 100% made from 2x4's

    So i wanted to keep the cost down when my mother asked me for a lawn ornament, so this is 100% made from 2×4's. It is going to be outside so the whole thing is coated with thompsons water seal. Each piece was coated individually before assembly. For the grey-ish pieces I added blue dye added...
  19. Kreg Pocket Hole Jig/ Storage

    This is one of those 1 hour projects made with scrap materials! I decided to make a base to mount my Kreg Pocket Hole Jig that would help support wider boards while i am drilling. Plus i wanted to be able to hang it on the wall out of the way. So here is the result of my "Design on the Fly"...
  20. Outfeed/Clamping Table

    Quick post, made this the other day. I've been debating moving my shop around and started making some moves towards that. First, I decided I wanted to have a more dedicated assembly table. Previously had it positioned as outfeed and ran into some frustrations. When I was building the dresser it...
