  1. Pullout Writing desktop

    The other sister now needed something also! So I removed the busted keyboard pullout and replaced it with some hefty slides and supersized it for a writing / project surface. The old pullout was on cheap slides and made from particle board like the rest of the desk, so it pretty quickly fell...

  4. Cedar Bench

    This one's for JockMike. Also made from cedar I use the pic from the catalog here as my plan. It gave me the dimensions in the product description which were 29-1/2" H by 60" W by 19" D. Theirs weighs in at 60 jbs. Mine is 1/3 heavier. I sanded the seat and the arms to simulate wear and tear...

  6. Rolling Toy

    I made this rolling toy using the plan from issue 66 of Woodworker's Journal (Nov/Dec 87). The roller disks were made by laminating 1/2" thick oak and 7/16" thick spalted sycamore. Finished with several coats of Behlen gloss lacquer. I actually made three of these, so a couple of friend's...
  7. Jewelry Box

    Here are a couple of jewelry boxes I made for two granddaughters. They are Sycamore with cherry on the frame of the lid. The sycamore turned dark when I put the finish on which did not exactly please me but the girls should be happy with them. I shaped the sides using molding cutters on the...
  8. Shaker Boxes

    My 13-year-old daughter and I made some Shaker Oval Boxes as presents before Christmas. Most are cherry or maple, but I experimented with walnut too. These are very easy to make with some simple equipment. If you're interested in information or supplies contact John Wilson. I have no...

  10. Greene and Greene bed

    I built this walnut bed as a wedding gift for a couple of friends. Since they live out in Oregon and I'm here in Kansas City I had to ship it freight. Boxing it up took some planning and the cost for the shipping ended up running about $250, but it was worth it. The project itself took about a...
  11. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I took my first trip into a Menard's this past weekend and I was truly impressed with their lumber and tool selection. I only have Lowe's and Home Depot around me and by comparison, they're terrible. Menard's had actual Baltic birch plywood in 4×8 sheets in 1/4", 1/2", and 3/4". They also had...

    I stopped by the my local Lowes at lunch and noticed that the Dewalt DW735 planer is now $549.00 marked down from $649.00 (which is the most common price i have seen everywhere)..... Also the replacement knives for the DW734 are marked down (dont remember the price…maybe $8 or so) Just a FYI...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am ready to get started on a project and went to my local Lowes web site to get some prices on hardwood plywood. First point, 3/4" 4×8 sheets of birch plywood and oak plywood had the exact same prices - $48.97. I decided I probably wouldn't need a full sheet, so I started looking at the prices...

    Hello WW Bargain Hunters, I happened to see a display in the Blue Box (aka Lowe's) today. The display box has packages of 4 Irwin Quick Grips, the 6" capacity size, with a sign saying 19.99.

    Found this in my local Lowes today. Not "professional grade" quality moisture meter but a pretty good price if you're in the market for a moisture meter. Free in-store pickup as well: Moisture Meter More reviews found at Amazon
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I was in Lowes today and looked at the Skil 1830 2 1/4HP router. Interestingly, it was sitting right next to the Bosch 1617EVSPK display model - and (at least from a features/controls standpoint) it looks pretty much identical. On the surface it's pretty impressive… Fixed and plunge bases that...

    I was at Lowes today and learned they are running their occasional 11% rebate, today through March 2.
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    First post. - Hello! So, this is not about me. I'm more of an electronics hobbyist than woodworker…that got a 3D Printer…wanted to build a cabinet for it… and got carried away down the following rabbit hole… I got a Craftsman CMEW020 6in Variable Speed Jointer from a big box store. I read the...

    measuring the model and planning any modifications So as part of a Murphy bed build, I wanted to incorporate a fold up (or hide away) ironing board. I have seen these at Lowes and Home Deport starting off about $168. They don't look that hard to build and I sure think I could save some money...
