  1. Shop Organization - Materials Cart

    There seems to be a lot of LJs getting starting spring cleaning early, particularly getting their lumber and sheet goods piles under control. About a month ago, I too jumped on the band wagon and finally built the materials cart that I had shared in my blog on SketchUp models for shop...
  2. Cutting Board Season!

    This is my second commissioned project, and was obviously a much bigger project! It is funny how it grew and grew. I made one for my wife who showed it of a few months ago and a neighbor showed up with an order for 10. She was so happy with the results on delivery she ordered one more! Along...
  3. 30 inch hand carved solid oak shelf

    this is a couple of solid oak 30 inch long shelves I made, one in wheat pattern carving and one in country flower pattern put pegs in one
  4. Cutting Board w/ a Twist

    I have found that the friends that I have given these cutting boards too will not use them they say "Oh they are two pretty to cut on". So why make cutting boards if they will not use them? So I decided to use hard maple on the back with an accent to add a little flare. That side they can cut...
  5. Cav Hat Rack

    This is actually my third attempt at making a Stetson Hat Rack, with each time changing the router template. The other two had some flaws which were covered up. I used "premium pine" and wenge. I used oak on my first attempt and proved difficult. I thought at the time it was because oak was...
  6. Dad's Nut House

    Here's another project from my (recent) pre-woodworking days. I've always been into making stuff, and before I "knew" how to work wood (or had the proper tools to do so) I work with what I had or could find. This is actually inspired from a cedar peanut "basket" Rob (my BIL) made one Christmas...
  7. New Wood Rack

    I have suddenly developed a need for more and larger wood racks. My existing racks are limited to 7 ft by location.and are about 3 ft deep. This rack is 96" high and 96" deep (duh) and 9 ft long. Between the stall on the right and the compressor on the left it will easily manage lengths of 15'...
  8. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hi all, I am building an entryway bench/hall tree for someone and this is my first time doing any kind of built-in type project for a home (mostly do small furniture/crafty type stuff and I am even new to that). I'm planning on building the bench out of Baltic Birch, but am trying to figure...
  9. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm taking a tig welding course over the summer in the hopes of using steel (and maybe aluminum) for components in some mostly wood furniture. So far, all I can find locally is structural steel tubing, which has a larger radius than you see on furniture tubing. Any ideas on particular suppliers...
  10. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hello, I am designing a Corner Shoe Cubby that enables storage of shoes and small bags as well as seating. The design should match our existing decor. The basic plan is to have a stained Douglas Fir Top and white painted bottom. This will match cabinets and new farmhouse bench that I made...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    Thoughts on breaking down used furniture for the lumber? For example, I saw a solid oak bookcase on Facebook for $50 and $100-150 solid oak church pews for sale. Could the wood from these be salvaged or even desirable? More hassle than it's worth when you consider the milling involved to plane...

    Planning Makes Perfect? Ok-as I learned on the garbage can holder, I think I need a bit more planning on my next project. I've in the past at least drawn out some sketches and worked from that . . . which is what I did to a certain degree on the trash holder but I didn't flesh out all the...

    Mobile Shelves, Expandable Assembly Table and Materials Cart I have a small shop, about 200SF. It's not as small as it once was, about 90SF, and it's not as big as what I hope to have some day, about 600SF. To keep from climbing over things and make it easier to move things around to...

    A little here, a little there Have you ever felt like you have gotten so much done, then you look around scratching your head and it just doesn't look like any progress has been made? In the last week or so I have cleaned out the shed a bit more, as well as bring in a bunch of free wood I...

    Thanks Grizzman, a1jim and David, Awhile back Grizzman was kind enough to send me a few table saw cut off or as some would call it Scrapes, well these wern't really that small to be scrapes, they were more or less small planks cut down into small boards for Scroll Sawing. Grizzman sent me a...

    Why Are You So Expensive? This is the question that I run into all the time when I bid jobs. Today I picked up materials for a small job and I mulled over this question as I stood staring at the cargo in my truck. Three boards of cherry and one sheet of 1/4" mdf core cherry… $217. Well, at...

    Wavering Confidence I recently began a project for my parents, they commisssioned me to build them a dvd rack from PureBond birch plywood. It is $45 a sheet, by far the most expensive material I have used, and I must admit that it cut be a little unnerving when trying to make sure I am making...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So, I gave my knives to a life-long sharpening service and they are not straight. I also found out one of them is significantly shorter than the other two so not sure if there is any vibration being created (Grizzly G1182 Jointer). Knives are 6" x 1" x 1/8" thick. I'm now researching...
