  1. Toybox # 2

    This is a toybox for my young friend Kayleigh's boy, Vincent. The construction is 1x pine frames, 1/2 mdf panels, and 1/4 mdf scroll work. Lots of fun to build and for a great young family! Most of the joinery is pocket holes.
  2. Simple End Tables

    I built these two tables from Oak to fill the narrow gap at the ends of my couch. They are a simple design and I made all of the cuts using a Miter Saw and a Table Saw. I sanded the Oak with 220 grit on my random orbital and then applied Special Walnut Minwax Stain. I finished off by applying...
  3. Kreg Pocket Hole Jig Workstation

    I am building the last section of a 75" by 11' bookcase entertainment center for my daughter. I am primarily using pocket joinery. I have been using a simple jig I made a while ago to drill the pocket holes. Problem is I have amassed a number of Kreg jig options, including their mini jig for...
  4. BBQ shelter

    This isn't something I would normally post, but it came out so cool that I had to share. I made the shelter this week while my kids (1 & 3) were napping. Five days worth of naps and this is the end product. I'm looking forward to avoiding some rain this winter. 90% of this material was sitting...
  5. cull pack projects - sawing stools

    another successful cull pack project, this time sawing stools! sized perfectly for hand sawing at my knee level and joined using pocket hole screws. i really like the pocket hole screws for shop projects. if something should happen i could easily reclaim the screws or repair the piece simply by...
  6. School House Loft Bed

    My mother wanted something special to give my niece for Christmas last year. Since she was getting too old for her little bed we decided to give her a big one. My mom found a free plan online for a school house loft bed. It looked good since is fits a twin mattress and there is enough room...
  7. Additional Shop Storage

    Some time spent in the shop this week helped me to straighten up a bit more. The first 3 pics are of my lathe work area or formally lack there of, the lathe bench was just piled with stuff. The lumber rack below the cabinet was made several months ago and also became very cluttered. The new...
  8. Pocket Hole Station

    I recently bought a Kreg pocket hole jig thinking it would be useful for some future projects for which sheet goods would be involved (ie. bookcase or shelving). After receiving the jig I decided to make a workstation and found that "ShopNotes" No. 1237 had published plans for such a...
  9. Humidor

    Humidor I built for myself. Maple top, front, back. Mahogany base. Hickory sides. Mahogany inner dovetails. Spanish cedar lining.
  10. Entertainment center, tv cabinet, oak

    I built this TV cabinent a few years ago. It is made from the red oak lumber that I got from a local tree that was cut down and processed. It has a pull-out, rotating platform. With the current direction toward flat screens, it may be a relic soon. But it is still downstairs with a TV in it.
  11. Chest of Drawers out of Country Maple

    This is the project that got me into woodworking as a therapeutic respite from the stresses of life! My step-son needed a new dresser for his bedroom, I, unlike my fiancee, absolutely HATE Walmart and Ikea, so I decided to take on woodworking to see if I like it. I have 2 Traumatic Brain...
  12. Garden Bench

    Here is an bench I made last week. I got the plans from Chief's Shop. His plans called for 2×6 boards, but I decided to use some pallet wood I had collected. Here is a link to Chief's Shop plans: http://chiefs-shop.com/html/garden_bench.html
  13. Plug Cutting Jig

    Been doing a lot of Cabinet, Bookcase and Entertainment Center projects lately using Kreg joinery. That meant I was using a lot of plugs to fill the holes. I bought a box of plug and quickly found I used a lot and had to go back to Home Depot and buy more. This got me to thinking there had to be...
  14. Dado Sled and rabbet fence

    Sorry, but I love making sleds. This is the first dado sled I have made. Comments and suggestions welcomed! This one is quite a bit smaller than the cross cut sled(s) I made. It's 24" by 24" square. I was always a little hesitant to cut dadoes on the table saw, but I think this makes it a lot...
  15. A step up (or Happy Birthday Mom)

    Now that it is my mom's birthday I can unveil the gift I hinted to in my blog. A folding two-step step stool. Happy Birthday Mom! We'll get it to you shortly :) The finish is up to you. The stool itself is all pine and put together with pocket hole joinery. In the last two pics my daughter...
  16. Walnut Valance

    I tried my hand again at making a live edge shelf but, this time I made it into a Valance. I had some Walnut laying around and my wife requested a shelf for her Cookie Jar collection. So, here it is. The Walnut looks pretty good. I started out using some Shelac but soon found out I didn't...
  17. Paint Booth - Finishing Table & Drying Rack

    Paint Booth, Finishing Table & Drying Rack Over my workshop there's a small Mezzanine (second level) split in two rooms, big enough to be used for finishing and drying. As I had very low budget for this project I tried to made the best I could for now, using inexpensive 18mm (3/4) OSB and...
  18. Drill Press Fence Upgrade

    When I first purchased my Delta Drill Press in January 2018, I was very ambitious to get it up and running. I built a very simplistic fence made out of a piece of jointed and planed cherry (3/4" tall x 2-1/4" deep x 20" wide) and two T-bolts and 5 star knobs. It served it's purpose until now...

    Hello all, Here is my miter saw station with lots of wood storage. I have been planning and going over lots of pictures and plans and gathering ideas from this one and that one to make it fit my space and needs. I am very happy with it Any questions let me know Thanks John
  20. Pine 4 Drawer Coffee Table

    My wife saw a coffee table like this one and strongly suggested that she would like one. She doesn't ask for much, and I enjoy working with wood, so I dove right in. When I was finished, my wife was surprised that I could build drawers! The next project is a pair of matching end tables and...
