  1. Saloon Bird Feeder

    I made this saloon-style bird feeder from two 6-foot fence boards that were 5.5" wide. I read that pressure-treated boards might be harmful to our feathered friends, so I used untreated boards. It has three bar stools and wooden bottles on the bar. The top has a hinge so you can open it to...
  2. Dust collector

    Thien dust collector This thing works great! The goal was to have it function well but also look like it belongs on top of the trash can. I mainly mill foams like eps and urethanes with my cnc. With that material being so light I was a little worried about a lot of it going directly into the...
  3. My First Flag Box

    Here's the first Flag Box I ever built. A couple of mistakes along the way, but hopefully the next one will be better. I learned a few things at least. Thanks go to Rod for both design considerations as well as donations of the plexiglass and the backing. I do like that backing. I'll be ordering...
  4. Kid Shavers!

    Well, you don't actually shave a kid with them but kids can shave with them! I've been on a razor/shaving kick lately and the kids have been getting involved too. I decided that we all need our own razor to play shaving with. About an hour in the shop with some dowels, screws, and acrylic...
  5. Zodiac Table

    Hello All, This is my first posting. And this is the first table I've ever made. I used maple plywood to make the legs and the border, I CNC machined the Zodiac carving into the 1" thick Plexiglass. Then I installed the red LED lights with a 9V battery and a switch to turn it on and off.
  6. Candy Dispenser

    Once again, another project that the scouts put together. These were pre-cut in kit form with some drilling and cuttting needed to finish the project. The candy would sit above the dowel rod and when the dowel rod is spun, it would drop a candy down the "sliding boards" and out the hole in the...
  7. Router Table Guard/Fulcrum/Vac

    One of my router table has a safety guard and another has a fulcrum pin. My twin mini router tables have nothing but emptiness (think naked). With this new versatile shop-made addition all my router tables will feature everything I need for accuracy, safety as well as dust collection. (I hope I...
  8. Picture Frame #2

    This picture frame is made to fit a standard poster, it is made from oak and has mitered corners with dowels through them at a 45 degree angle. I used the dowels because my ceiling is too low to put this frame in my spline jig on the table saw. It has chamfered edges and the oak has some old...
  9. Information Sign Board w/ Magnetic Frames

    This is another project for the summer camp I work at. It is a sign board that displays the pictures/cell phone numbers of our 3 staff hosts on duty, it has two 8.5×11 frames for general group information/schedule, and it has a weatherproof literature box to hold our camp maps. This is one of...
  10. New CNC enclosure

    Having moved this past winter the shop went from a dedicated building detached from the living space to an area in the basement. While the room is isolated from the rest of the house HVAC, noise and dust mitigation was mandatory by spousal decree. The frame is 3/4" Baltic birch and the plex is...
  11. Shoe Cupboard

    This project was for a client to store an extensive shoe collection. It fits inside an existing alcove next to a very similar built in cupboard. This was designed to look like an extension of the existing cupboard. I made the shelving unit first from 18mm mdf just using two side pieces with...
  12. Garage Murphy bed | Custom

    This is a murphy bed that the customer wanted it to look like a garage display at their favorite race car museum. They send me some pictures and I came up with this design for them. The wood was oak to give the bed more if a siding feel to it. The windows were Plexiglas mirrors. This was a...
  13. Red Oak Sand Paper Disc Storage Cabinet

    This is a pretty simple cabinet I made to hold the various grits of sanding discs for my new porter cable low profile sander. it is approx. 17"T x 7 1/2" wide x 6" deep. Made from Red Oak with 1/4" luan shelves and 1/4" birch ply tabs. The clear door panel is Plexi not glass. Being that this...
  14. Shop Cabinet

    It doesn't really get much more basic than this: a simple wall mounted cabinet. I've made a few small projects now (cutting board, box, toy excavator, workbench, etc…), but this is my first piece of "furniture". This was a project my brother and I worked on together over a weekend. We are...
  15. King Bedroom Suit- Bed, Nightstands, Dresser

    This is my most recent major project-a bedroom suit for our new king-size mattress. I'm not sure what to call the style (maybe you can help), but it's simple and classic, and will certainly last a lot longer than our last discount furniture store set. All the pieces are made from solid poplar...
  16. A Bright Gift Idea

    This is my rendition of lamps I saw on Lj's made by Asher, Yokel and Jackmoony (links to their projects below) I tweaked the design slightly, eliminating the arches at the base and beads to opt for a simpler more "modern" appearance. I also changed the design so that in order to change the light...
  17. Hole in One Shadow Box

    With the exception of a pen I made for myself after I had already made them for my son and his girlfriend and I liked it so much I wanted one too (https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/243786), I don't make projects just for me…making them for family and friends is so much more fulfilling. But...
  18. Acrylic Barrier

    Here's the acrylic barrier I recently built. It's basically a plastic shield to help block the spread of germs and viruses. Many businesses are adding them to their counters to keep their workers safe during the pandemic. I'm sure this could be a useful project for people to make and sell this...
  19. Bird Feeder: Cedar and Plexiglass

    Cedar and plexiglass bird feeder, no finish: I made this bird feeder as a gift for my father in-law. He will likely feed more squirrels with it than birds as its open design will not keep them out. I used biscuits to join the 8 sides and rabbited in the floor. I used a combination of...
  20. Walnut & Plexiglass LED

    I get a little geeky here… This build was full of trouble. First off my 3/16 bandsaw blade was completely dull, I ended up really pushing it and broke the blade. (and scared myself pretty good too!) Then I broke the first two pieces of plexiglass I cut out! Finally I had to re-think the...
