  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. Mobile Assembly Table - Doors and Retractable Casters!

    Once again, something mobile… nothing special, but useful in my garage shop. A couple of weeks ago, I visited one of our local commercial lumber yards that sells cabinetry, doors, flooring, etc. to contractors. They have a door mill where they make all kinds of doors under special order as well...
  3. My "Pain in the Butt!" Pallet Bed Project

    As many of you woodworkers can attest to - if your significant other asks, your significant other gets! That was the case with this project - a first for me working with pallets. The girlfriend wanted a rustic pallet bed frame, so I was off to the races planning and sourcing my materials. Now...
  4. Garage wall cabinets

    Just finished these garage wall cabinets. Face frame construction (painted black). Tongue and groove doors. Floating panel painted red. Lots of pocket holes. Nothing real complicated but it's really satisfying to finish the project. Nice to free up some floor space in the garage.
  5. Small Coffee Table or Step Stool

    I made this out of poplar, its a small coffee table used to sit next to my bean bag, it could also be used as a stepping stool i jumped on it a few times to make sure it was strong. This is a nice simple project you can make in an afternoon. The legs are cut with a 10 degree bevel on the table...
  6. TV Table

    This is my first foray into pocket hole joinery. I was a bit skeptical about the whole thing, but figured since it seemed to be so popular, I'd give it a whirl. I got the Kreg mini jig, which is just a single hole jig and the pocket hole drill. You supply your own clamps. Anyway, I built this...
  7. Kitchen Drawer

    Our house was built in 1972. The kitchen cabinets are original to the house and were these tacky looking English Tudor sort of things in a style popular back then. They were covered in this sort of "industrial grade" contact paper that was bubbling and peeling. The kitchen drawers are these...

Materials ( Pressure Treated Wood) (13) 2×4x8 ( frame and seating ) (1) 2×6 ( top piece where I put the name) Overall dimensions are 60" w x 36" H x 27" deep I just needed a place to sit while I grill the dinner in the summer and have a...
  9. More uses from my Bessey assembly blocks

    To maximize my Bessey assembly blocks, I cut hardwood strips so they would slip into the upper grooves, up to the top of the blocks. I also made a bracket to hang them from, on the wall french cleats cut at 45°. As shown, they are useful when crosscuting with my portable circular saw without...
  10. 7 Drawer Dresser

    This is a dresser for my first Granddaughter. I used the plans from Build Basic. I made it 6" narrower to better fit the room. The upper drawer fronts are made a little different from the plans and the drawer boxes have 1/4" plywood bases installed in a dado. One other change, the sides and...

  12. Writing Desk

    This is a small writing desk I made for my mother-in law. She needed a small desk in her assisted living space. I made its out of oak, and put it together with pocket hole screws. I cut it out and put it together in one afternoon.
  13. Recycling Closet Revamp

    Over the Christmas period our recycling closet basically fell apart so my wife paid for me to remake a better functional design and easy to use.. I was limited by the fact that the closet was only 14" wide if useable space because I needed to put the mop and broom in there and need to set space...
  14. Wood Benches

    I built these from plans I found at this very Orange big box store. I modified the plans to make the benches 6 ft long and used 2×6 for the seat instead of 2×4. The legs are pressure treated but the seats are plain construction grade wood. They are intended for outdoor use.
  15. Charging Station/Tool Storage

    This is my version of the charging station probably just about everyone has a version of in their shop. My problem is, since I don't have a shop or a garage, and all i have is an open carport and a storage room, I need to utilize every inch of the small space I have. I wanted my drills and...

    At long last I have finished the shoe storage bench for the hallway in our house. Here are a few pictures of it. The top is stained pecan with at least 6 coats of polyurethane - General Finishes High Performance Top Coat - water based. The rest was painted with a flat brick/barn red paint and...
  17. Storage Bin for Scrap Metal

    Scrap metal storage bin - I built for the barn. I know I could have made this from many different types of material, but I chose wood (2×4 split). I could have put it together make different ways, but I chose pocket holes screws with glue and it came out very strong and square, better than some...
  18. For the Dogs!

    Neighbor asked if I could build her a couple of training platforms so she could train her Service Dogs. Apparently they need a starting / return point they can reference from. Little did I know. Probably took the project a little to far but I thought they needed to know which platform was...
  19. Outfeed/Clamping Table

    Quick post, made this the other day. I've been debating moving my shop around and started making some moves towards that. First, I decided I wanted to have a more dedicated assembly table. Previously had it positioned as outfeed and ran into some frustrations. When I was building the dresser it...

    This is my 3rd and best set of cornhole boards to date…lol. They are made out of 1/2 inch birch plywood and 1×4 Poplar. They are assembled using pocket screws and glue. Then coated with 3 coats of an oil based polyurethane and gel stain for the designs. The "steal your face" logo over the holes...
