  1. Lumber Cart

    I was starting to collect a lot of scrap wood and needed to find a better place to put it. I am sharing a two car garage with my wife so I need to allow for her car to get parked in. She has been saying that there was no more room for her to park. So I sat down and tried to figure out what I...
  2. Table saw mobile base - DIY version

    Here is my Craftsman table saw and its brand new-ish mobile base. The saw is badly in need of some upgrades. This is the first one completed. Total project cost. $10 and change for 4 door hinges. Everything else was scrap wood or were parts I had on hand. The release/lock for the foot lever is...
  3. Beer Stuff... for a Beer Fridge...

    Well, I have been working on building some stuff for my friends beer fridge. It is a modified chest freezer that is going to hold 6- 5 GALLON kegs of homebrew. He asked me to make a surround to attach the taps to and also raise the height of the fridge to hold more kegs. This is the surround. It...
  4. First Segmented Bowl

    This is my first segmented turning and first bowl ever. Learning to turn face grain was a challenge. I guess when you don't have a teacher on hand, you learn by trial and error! Made this bowl from walnut and maple. It's 6 7/8" across and 1 3/4" tall. Got it to about 5/16" thick in the base and...
  5. Cherry Walnut Maple Leaf Box

    Thank to the many LJs who turned me on to the world of box building. Since joining LJs several months ago I have seen so many wonderful and creative boxes and I had to give it a try myself. Its a great way to use up smaller pieces of wood that might be destined to the scrap pile or fireplace...
  6. Spoons

    The Reclining Nude spoon I pulled out of a brush pile last week. I think it is Live Oak. The second is Black Cherry Burl and I carved the bowl around the concentric circles. The squiggly one is cherry. On the Witch I left the bark attached on the bowl and the hat, hair and face. It was a...
  7. Aspen Vase

    This is a 12 inch Aspen Vase with a sculpted foot. Lots of aspen out here and great to work with. The foot is undercut 2 inches and then indexed on the lathe. A drum sander is built for the lathe and the sculpted feet are cut out. It is an end grain vase and the rim of a secondary wood in...
  8. Mobile Base for New Grizzly G1023RL

    OK So its not made of wood. But its my most recent finished project that is related. I designed and built it to hold my new Grizzly table saw which you can see in the background. My dad came over and welded it up for me this past weekend. Took us all day to make it. Its got a pivoting end to...
  9. Honey Pot

    Had a few hours to play in the shop today and I was yearning to turn, so I turned an urn. Oak from Will G's giant white oak tree that fell down during the NJ Halloween 2011 snow storm. This is about 9" tall. Bob 2 3 2012
  10. Poplar Box Turkey Call

    I learned a little from my first box call, and developed this one after. I cut four 1/8" wide grooves 1/16" deep down each side to improve sound. I also milled one side just a tad thinner to make each side produce a different sound. It has walnut end blocks, and is a 7" call. The other one I...
  11. Simple mobile base out of dimension lumber

    Helped a fellow woodworker, a little lady who builds toys for our Salvation Army toy drive, build a wooden mobile base for her new drill press. It is very simple. 2×6rails, 2×4 ledge and work bench casters she had on hand. Simple. All we had to purchase was a few bolts.
  12. First cutting board

    My first cutting board was a simple hard maple and walnut end grain board as a mothers day gift. It's 1.5" thick and finished with mineral oil. The second board is cherry, maple, and walnut and is also 1.5" thick and finished with mineral oil. Thanks for looking!
  13. time at an angle

    I found this style of clock on the internet and thought it was interesting. It is a pretty simple clock to build once the angle has been found. This angle is 30 degrees. I've been trying to make a clock that might be worthy to be placed on lbj. I think this is a good candidate.
  14. Shop Project: Mobile Base

    Just finished this a little bit ago, for my bandsaw. Made using the free plans from Woodsmith. Was a quick, easy project. The only problem I came across was that I do not have a 1 1/4" forstner bit for the handle, so I used a 1" spade bit to hog out the main hole, and then a 1 1/4" hole saw...
  15. Ridgid 4511 Mobile Base Mod

    I've never been impressed with the Herculift mobile base for the R4511. It never performed well over the brick paver floor I have, and occasionally the catch would slip, dropping the saw to the floor. I came up with this design to solve that problem. The base is constructed from 2x's that I...
  16. DeWALT 20" Scroll Saw MOBILE BASE •

    April 11, 2014 With so much interest in a scroll saw mobile bases, I thought Iʻd share the one I made for my DeWalt 20 inch scroll saw (( PIC #1)) several years ago. It has worked fine. It was designed to keep the scroll saw table about the same height from the floor by resessing the wheel...
  17. Arts and Crafts picture frames

    A couple picture frames for the in-laws. Plain sawn white oak, half lapped joints with faux pegs. The finish started with fuming, followed by a seal coat, a glaze and then several coats of clear shellac rubbed out with steel wool and a dark wax. All settled, Im not terribly pleased with...
  18. Walking Stick or Poor Man's Meteorite Detector

    I made an order for several rare earth magnets [from KJ Magnetics] in the one hundred pound pull range for use in securing switch boxes, mounted on ten foot cords, to my dust collectors. I had one left over,a 2×6 laying around and was inspired by a friend's conversation about metal detecting...
  19. Flip Top Tool Stand

    I've built a tilt top tool stand for my planer and chop saw: It's mounted on a metal mobile tool base. The bottom is two layers of 1/2" CD plywood from my scrap pile. The side supports are 2×4's cleaned up on the joiner and planer and joined with bridle joints. The top is a torsion box...
  20. Bosch Table Saw Custom Mobile Base

    Purchased the WoodRiver Retracting Casters for the Bosch GTS 1031Table Saw mounted on top of the Bosch GTA 500 Stand. As a retired Manufacturing Engineer, I knew when I purchased these casters that it would involve some major design issues. At first I thought it might be possible to build a...
