  1. Computer Desk and Table, via Pocket Holes and Plywood

    My small desk just didn't give me enough space to draw, edit videos, or play video games comfortably. So I decided it's time for a new one! I considered buying a computer desk, but couldn't find quite what I wanted, so I decided to make one. One that would have room for all my hobbies and be...
  2. This was my first attempt at cabinets

    We were having a house built and I told my wife that i would like to try to build the kitchen and bathroom cabinets to save money and she thought I was nuts. I signed up for a cabinet making class at Lee Valley Tools. And of course I had to buy some tools as well. My favorite tool so far is my...
  3. Mothers Day is coming up.... May 13th

    Here is a quick Mothers Day project that I saw some time ago on LJs made by Wooddiva for Christmas gifts. I made five of them for a fundraiser we had for our park improvement fund and they sold out quick @ $45 each and made another two for the wife as well. Very simple to make with a pocket hole...
  4. My First Coffee Table Build

    Good morning everyone! Wanted to share a project I built a little over a year ago! This was my first big project as a builder- as in - bigger than a "few cuts for shelves" kind of project! I think this was a tipping point for me finding a true hobby in woodworking. I found a cool yet simple...

  6. Kreg Jig Workcenter

    This project was in the March 2011 issue of Wood magazine. This is a great workcenter when working with longer material. No more balancing the wood on the jig, which wasn't a huge problem anyway. It's also a great storage organizer. I'm able to keep everything together, but separate. It's great...

  9. Shop Built Air Filter

    I scored a free 4 speed furnace blower the other day and decided to build a much needed Shop Air Filter system. I found some plans at http://www.woodworkingseminars.com/wp-content/ShopAirFilter.pdf All it cost me was $30 for the 3/4 Birch plywood and a few hours of my time. Note: Thanks to LJ...
  10. Pocket Hole Jig

    Most pocket hole jigs use some type of toggle clamp to hold the wood firmly against the drilling jig. Some use hardwood, and if you don't buy plans, it takes a lot of experimental time to get it right. Mine uses an old caulking gun. I used Dustin Rogers' design for the base. You can see his...
  11. Pine 4 Drawer Coffee Table

    My wife saw a coffee table like this one and strongly suggested that she would like one. She doesn't ask for much, and I enjoy working with wood, so I dove right in. When I was finished, my wife was surprised that I could build drawers! The next project is a pair of matching end tables and...

    You may think this is an ordinary step stool but what you don't realize is that as soon as the camera comes out to take pictures to post on Lumberjocks it INSTANTLY transforms into a child display stand. Children can pose and stand on display on this step stool in ALL SORTS of different...

  14. Cedar Grillin' Table

    Home Depot had a skid of Cedar 2×4s that I'm pretty sure were mis-labeled for around $2.50 a piece, so I bought 10 of them with no real purpose. While grilling out this weekend, I noticed I needed a table to sit dishes and grilling utensils on. This is what happened next :) I made the plan...
  15. Dining Table Using Pocket Hole Joinery

    My son, Adam,was home for spring break. When he got here he said he wanted to build a dining table for his apartment he shares with 3 other boys. THEY DON'T HAVE A TABLE TO EAT ON. However, he was in his car. No way to transport a piece of furniture that big. Then I thought about the pocket hole...
  16. Pocket Hole Workstation

    Pulled the plug and made one of these. From the current issue of Shopnotes. A couple of notes: plans are based on the new K5 model. If you have a K3 model like I do, the riser block height and spacing has to be adjusted the drawer width in the plans is a little to narrow for the opening...

  20. Coffee, End, Sofa Tables

    The original inspiration for this was an issue of Lowe's Creative Ideas magazine. My wife saw the coffee table and said she would like one similar. The End tables and Sofa Table (picture still to come) were then added to her wish list. Standard poplar stock from Lowe's along with some scrap 3/4"...
