  1. Planer Cabinet

    I recently bought a Dewalt 735 planer and needed a rolling cabinet for it. At 90 lbs, the planer was just too hard and dangerous to move around. Nothing fancy. Case is made from 3/4" Baltic birch plywood. Back is also 3/4" just because it avoided buying more plywood. Case is just a bit...
  2. foam cutter

    I made this foam cutter for work (got paid to woodwork in my garage for a day :). I build weather balloon instruments that require lots of foam insulation to keep things warm at 30 km (100k feet) altitudes. We used to hack out foam parts by hand with a knife, and also had a kludged-together...
  3. Workshop Cabinets

    These are the cabinets I built for my garage converted to a workshop. There is a bath on the other side of this wall that I was able to plumb a sink into. Cases are pre-finished birch plywood. Doors and drawers fronts are 3/4" Melamine. Cases were pocket screwed together. I used leg levers for...
  4. Dust Free Router Table w/ Free Lift

  5. Vanity & linen cabinets with matching mirror frame

    These units were part of a gut and redo bathroom project. The cabinet dimensions are exactly the same as the old nasty built-ins I tore out. The client wanted to be able to put everything back into the cabinets in the same orientation as before the renovation. The frame of the mirror is the...
  6. White Storage Seat Box

    This is a white storage box I made for one of my neighbors. It is made out of white 3/4 melamine with white band edging. When the seat is the lid and when it is lifted you can see the rails giving the seat support. I originally made it for her to be a toy box but it has been turned into a toy...
  7. Shop Project - Organizer Cabinet

    I have wanted to do this project for awhile. I try to be organized by having these Stanley 10-Compartment Professional Deep Organizers for screws, bolts, hinges, etc… The problem is they all stacked on top of each other and I always seemed a need a part or screw in the organizer stacked on the...
  8. Pocket Hole Joinery Assembly Fixture

    Holding pocket hole joinery components on edge has always been an issue, therefore a new jig. And here is mine. I've used Melamine because glue won't stick to it, and I had everything in my scrap bins. As shown, I've taken advantage of a groove already milled on the back by adding a cleat so it...
  9. Bath Cabinet

    Just another melamine bath cabinet with PVC wrapped doors and drawer fronts. Ball bearing slides installed for smooth drawer action.
  10. Kid's Bed

    Its been a while since my last project. Let's just say moving and then then installing a drainage system 9 months in at the new house has kept me busy. Here is a project that's been on the to-do list for a while. My 12 year old son no longer has a make-shift bed frame. This design was...
  11. My daughter's BIG bed

    About a couple weeks ago my wife and I were looking for a new bed for our 4 year old daughter and we found one online with build-in storage below it. But it cost close to $2,000 bucks. So I designed one in Auto CAD 3D and the second picture shows what I came up with and the first picture is how...
  12. Garage attic bookshelves and storage cabinets

    A friend wanted to maximize the use of her garage attic space. She had a load of books and storage items so wanted a combination book shelf / storage cabinet unit. I built this unit using melamine cases and doors. The doors open directly to storage behind the cabinets.
  13. Bamboo desk

    Previous project was a bamboo desk for the kids, this is the adult version. I used two bamboo counter tops and melamine, I like the contrast of texture and colors.
  14. Router Table and Fence | DIY build

    I got my hands on a router lift a while back and I've been wanting to make a router table for it ever since. I finally finished the build of this 36×24 inch table. It's top is melamine, laminated with 3/4 plywood to help keep it dead flat. I also made a custom fence using the same lamination...
  15. Cutting Board Glue-up Jig

    My jig for building cutting boards…. Pretty simple, a piece of melamine with three "fences". Everything trimmed out in some walnut that I got from a scrap pile, which keeps the melamine from chipping out on the edges. It has some pine strips on the bottom to elevate it and the fences are...

    Hello all! This was the second project i have completed! This shoe holder i made per the request of a local community center. I got the design idea while searching the web although i cant remember where at the moment. It was constructed of birch plywood, melamine, and maple for the face...
  17. Closet Organizer

    Built two closet organizers, one for each of my son's closets. The material used is a melamine product purchased at Menards, the finish is Hard Rock Maple. Each organizer required 3 sheets. A matching PVC edge band is available, but it had to be attached with contact cement. The drawers are...
  18. Cheap Yet Very Effective Router Bit Storage Drawers

    To fill empty spaces under two wall benches I made those cheap narrow drawers from scraps. Since I couldn't use any type of slides, I made them out of slippery materials, Melamine and HDF laminated floor boards. I made two boxes to be secured under the benches with screws and then two drawers to...
  19. Floating Vanity

    I've been going through a major remodel over the past few months that included a brand new powder room. The bathroom is pretty narrow so I wanted a small custom wall hung vanity to fit with my vessel sink and wall faucet. What looks like a simple box turned out to be quite an interesting...
