    It's not my dad. Just something I came across surfing… Has anyone else seen this video? It's an amazing tour of a 75' spiral staircase that goes up a tree and is topped with a platform. I'm not comfortable with heights and seeing this flimsy looking construction that high up made my heart...

    I'm wondering how many LJs have ever been on "Easy Street"? I have been on it a few times and could be again but I'd have to go to Port Angles, WA to get there. How many more "Easy Streets" are there in towns and cities scattered around the world? Goggle doesn't seem to know, so I doubt...

    OK, I have wanted to do this for a long time. Just for fun. Let's see what kind of responses I get. Question: Give me a one word answer on what you consider a virtue of woodworking. Examples: Skill, patience. Come on people, give it a try!

    I have been toying with a design for a platform bed for a couple weeks. I finally went from thinking to drawing and wanted to see where I'm going wrong here. I wanted a design that was entirely knockdown, and fairly simple. All of the pieces are 1" wide. All of the inner joints are sliding...

    I am trying to find a decent dovetail jig for around $50-$75. I don't need anything fancy and only plan on using it for hobby purposes. I don't foresee needing anything larger than a 12 incher for what it do currently. I am looking at the WoodRiver Half-Blind Dovetail Jig. Anyone have any...

    Hey ya'll, I received a left hand Dubby sled yesterday. I unpacked it, did the inventory, and inspected the platform for flatness. I could already see it wasn't quite flat. I hoped that perhaps the miter slot bar would help… So following the instruction manual, I loosely assembled it, and...

    The Plan I will be making two platform beds for a single client. One will have a very large headboard and the other will not. Both will have a set of cabinets lining the side. This is what's not so ordinary for platform bed. These cabinets will set on top of the platform. So for a full...

    Inspiration and Requirements Soon I'll be delving into the design of my next project, a queen-size platform bed for my wife and myself to share. These first two images are the best examples of the overall look I'll be going for. I love the low set of these beds coupled with the overhang of the...

    Getting started I'll use this to help keep track and to motivate me to get this project done. I'm making a platform-style arts and crafts bed with cherry and three maple plywood inserts. I started with rough cut boards purchased at a specialty lumber yard (side note: maybe I don't understand...

    Time to get back to it! So it's been a few years since my last blog post. Since then I've gained a son, but lost a lot of free time. This year, though, it's time to get back to it. I have plans to built up my garage shop in anticipation of heating/cooling and insulating it next year. My...

    Initial framing Bedroom and bathroom done. I'll start the living room/kitchen remodel in the spring. What to do in the meantime? Make a bed of course. In my mind… which is where these things always are, the bed will be maple with two large drawers on one side. The head ends will have 3 small...

    Vape pen stand As an amputee I have intense phantom pain that only a relief vape can stop. If you lay them on their side all the juice pools on the side instead of at the base of the wick. The vape pens themselves have a small, tippy, footprint that easily falls over even if your hand is steady...

    Local CL listing http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/tls/4383148673.html Looks big, fixed 90 degree blade. If priced right I might take a stab but 3 phase 1 hp worries me. Any ideas? thank, Paul

    Do you guys think this platform bed will work once covered in a top of 3/4 plywood? Joinery is straight forward dados, some biscuits, glue, and brads. I'm concerned that the plywood will droop too much over the drawer spaces. Would two layers of plywood be better? Tell me what you think...

    Hello, Greetings from Mexico. I have my carpenter making me a custom cherry wood desk. I want the desk to me assembled and reassembled multiple times like if I ever move. When you buy prefabricated desks they normally have pre-threaded inserts. Because they don't sell that stuff here I would...

    Hi Folks, First off I've never done any woodworking before so please forgive any dumb questions or mistakes. The bed I'm sleeping on right now is a very cheap, full-size, platform style bed and I really want to have something more robust and aesthetically pleasing. I've been playing around in...

    Since some of you have read my blogs you know that I am new to LJ but I have been a self-taught woodworker for twenty plus years now. Recently I purchased a 3/4 HP Jet Dust Collector for a steal off of CL and considering its size, it fits into my corner of the garage a lot better than some of...
