  2. Gate for Japanese style fence

    Just installed a gate I designed and made for the Japanese style fence at our house in Kansas City. I am new to woodworking and very much a novice when it comes to using my table saw. I had some two by four fir lumber which I ripped to one by two for the frame. Used lap joints at the corners and...
  3. Ergonomic Sanding Block

    I got tired of just wraping sandpaper around a block of wood. Sometimes I would sand away part of my little finger. Ouch! And it just didn't fit my hand right. So I designed a quarter sheet sanding block. A machine screw provides the clamping force to hold the two pieces together. The bottom...
  4. Franklin chair or library chair

    Remember that last time that you tried to reach something on the top shelf that was just our of reach? Standing on your tiptoes still wasn't working so you started looking around for something to stand on. You don't want to stand on your nice dining room chairs with your filth encrusted boots or...
  5. CD Lamp

    After seeing several CD lamp designs on the web I knew what would become of my discarded CD pile and set out to make my own. The back support is hollowed out to house the lamp electronic ballast and on/off toggle switch. The CDs are held only by the two small notched rails, epoxied in place...

  9. Sandpaper storage cabinet

    I just finished making my wall cabinet for my sandpaper. I designed this myself for my needs. It holds 6 different belt grits, 10 different sheets of sandpaper, my sandpaper rolls, 3 sanding pads, painter's tape, and 2 sanding blocks. I also wanted to add a door because dust always seems like it...

  15. Pine Entertainment Center

    Last year I got tired of having my plasma sitting precariously on a stool and my A/V equipment stacked on the floor. This was my own design built from clear pine from Home Depot. I built this using only a circular saw, a router, a hand saw, and a few sanders, and I built it (unwisely) on the...
