  1. Another Shop Project..Clamp racks

    My garage is more organized now than it's ever been but I'm still working on it. This was my latest project. I originally had my pipe clamps mounted horizontally on the wall but it wasn't convenient so I found this pipe clamp rack idea. It's was so easy to make with a 2 X 4 and 1/2" steel rod...
  2. Benchtop Workbench

    I need a traditional woodworking bench with all the bells and whistles but cant afford it at this moment in time perhaps the lottery can help out at some point in the near future. LOL What I do need is a clamping solution other than the Jay Bates inspired Moxon Vise that I made a little while...

    Took a 1×6 x 12' Ash plank, and a 2×4 x10' Ash board, and a piece of 1/4" Luann plywood… Tapered legs, with a double bead on the outside corner, and a cove on the other two corners that show.. Mortise and tenon to join things together…Top is a 3 board glue-up..with a couple details. Finish is...
  4. Small Dresser

    My wife's grandparents moved into an assisted living facility, which was really just a small two-bedroom apartment. They had been living in a typical bungalow on the south side of Chicago for 60 years. They did not have too much in the way of furniture, as they were always saving their money...
  5. A Living Room Table

    It's as much metalwork as it is woodwork, but I've been here for so long and looking at all of your posts that I had to add something of value. My wife asked me for a distressed living room table and showed me a few pictures of what she wanted. I was able to get really close and she is very...
  6. Wedding Ring Box

    My wife and I were married on July 16th. I made this wedding ring box for her and gave it to her with the ring in it. After a great Italian Honeymoon we are getting into the married groove and I am attempting to catch up on my project uploads. I wanted to attempt it without any metal...
  7. Build a light box!!! Great for the shop and craft room!

    I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! I needed a light box for my office. I use it when I do decal work and trace things for the office or workshop. The build consists of red oak, glue, plexi glass, white paint, electrical items. Primary construction method was box...
  8. Archeological Sifters

    A friend of mine recently purchased the James Smith house. Smith was an American Revolutionary War patriot and lived only a few miles from here. The house was about to be destroyed to make room for a parking lot. It has now been dismantled and will be reassembled on another site. Included in the...
  9. Space Saving Parallel Clamp Rack

    Hey, guys! I just finished up a parallel clamp rack for the shop and I love this thing! I used a stacked approach vs. the typical side by side approach and it offers some massive space savings (I got the idea from Dyami from Penultimate Woodshop). The rack is 38-3/4" wide and will fit 24...
  10. The NEw Fangled Bench

    Well, It seems to be a trend. I've looked at benches for a long time and for the price, size and utility, I'm looking towards a 6' version of John White's New Fangled Bench (Fine Wood Working, 1999). I'm not sure why, but no one posts the Sketchup drawing files on the net, so I've had to...
  11. Pipe Clamp Rack - Bessey Pipe Clamps

    Trying to take more pictures while I work so I can start to add projects to my profile. Been a member over a year, but most projects are crunched for time, so.. here we go. This is a simple pipe clamp rack to get my pile of pipe clamps off the floor. Knocked it out during my lunch break on a...
  12. Mobile Clamp Rack

    Christmas, Holidays, and birthdays over the years have brought me lots of clamps for woodworking, and after a while, they now seem to overrun my shop… So, I decided to consolidate ALL my clamps onto a mobile clamp rack, that I can wheel around where and when needed. This rack has 2 swivel...

    I have pipes for, obviously, pipe clamping jobs. Some of these pipes are older than Moses and have seen better days but are still sound. But what I've been finding lately is that some of the pipes have so many little nicks from the clamp mechanisms that they are almost a ratchet clamp. So my...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi You All, I have bougt some Bessey pipeclamps type H 3/4. So I can use 3/4 galvanized pipe (inner diameter). How do I connect the pipe to the clamp (the one with the crankshaft). Do I need to thread the pipe and what measure threading is needed? Or do I force the pipe in by hand and turn it...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have many pipe clamps, use them frequently, and am happy with them. I know, they are heavy. That doesn't bother me too much, but what I was wondering is if there were a way to increase the "face" size, the clamping face of pipe clamps. I know, it would have been done, but the weight becomes...

    I am a beginner. I am about to start a simple computer desk. On a tight budget. This video "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FWnPRRT5JU" & my new gig working from home inspired me to take this on. I am sure there will be several questions that come up. Here are some I already have, please...

    rough cut framing lumber The sketchup plans for the bench originally came to me from Jeff, and I modified the dimensions to make the final bench 8' long x 28" deep x 34" tall (although I rough cut the leg pieces a bit longer, since I'm debating whether to bring up the height an inch or so)...

    Newfangled Freebie I started work this weekend on a newfangled workbench. Thanks to those who have posted their previous projects (Nedb,Jeff, Ben and others) - they were all a big help in trying to piece together the bench from the kinda vague fww article. All the information in the world...

    Cake squares - not cookies I've had a set of bench cookies for a while and just recently used them for the first time. I also had a set of risers and realized that called for a second set of cookies so I made a set of "cake squares". I realized how helpful these would be for drilling and using...
