  1. Doll bunk beds.

    Doll bunk beds I made for my daughter. They fit the American Girl doll sized dolls Poplar and 1/4" plywood, stained and finished with shellac. Magnets in the top and bottom of the posts hold them together when used as bunk beds. Pocket screws hold the rails to the posts. Edit: I did not make...
  2. Walnut Dresser/Changing Table

    Walnut version of Changing table/Dresser previously built with white oak, this one for our second grandchild. Minor design differences as compared to previous build. Design from WoodCrafter magazine. Views show as changing table (with out pad) and as dresser. Drawer pulls are miss mitched in...
  3. I can do that bookcase

    I was looking around for an easy all-hand-tool project that would allow me to get my feet back in the water. After searching, I found a simple bookcase I thought would be easy enough to do. I ran by Boulter Plywood over in Somerville and got a decent price on some beautifully figured walnut to...
  4. Coffee table from 2x4s and 2x6s

    Made a coffee table for my living room - initially tried pocket holes but did not like the way it felt under light/intermediate pressure (I sit on my coffee tables, sometimes, top was attached with pocket holes and glue and still is) So I rebuilt using lap joints and 7/8 dowels, no screws - Top...
  5. Shoe rack

    When I needed to make a rack to store shoes and place a few things that I take in and out of my pockets every day (keys, wallet, etc.), I found a few projects on this site that looked like they would work nicely. Namely: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27531 (which I followed more closely) and...
  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...
  7. Dining Room Molding/Trim

    After many months, I finally installed the last piece of molding in our dining room today. For anyone that wants to see the entire transformation from living room to dining room, which included knocking down exterior walls, I started a blog on the home refurbers site...
  8. Poor Man's Pocket Hole Drilling Jig

    This simple jig works great for drilling pocket holes. It took me roughly 15 minutes to construct so it is a very economical solution for drilling pocket holes. To use the jig, simply clamp it to the workpiece and drill to the appropriate depth. In my case, I cut it such that the approprate...
  9. Quick and Dirty Clamp Rack

    I was sick of the way my clamps were being stored (basically they were all clamped down on a cleat on the wall) and finally decided do to something about it. I had a piece of 3/4" laminated particle board in the scrap pile, so I ripped it into two long pieces, cut 1/2" slots partway into one...
  10. Outfeed Table

    This outfeed table was designed and built to complement my new tablesaw. It is constructed of 3/4" maple and BC exterior plywood, and assembled primarily with pocket screws and glue. This was my first pocket screw project, and I must say that in certain situations they are definitely...
  11. Hall Table with options

    This is a hall table that we built out of poplar and used pocket screw construction. We wanted it to be black when done so thats why we used the poplar. It has a 3/8'' thick peice of glass and a "shadow box" under it with an led strip to add some light from inside. At the time we put all the...
  12. Cabinet/Assembly Table

    I needed/wanted an assembly table for the garage shop and originally used SketchUp to design one. Then I measured the space I had and found that I didn't have the room for it! I decided to pare it down a bit and this is what I ended up with: A rolling cabinet with a back that folds up and sets...
  13. Old barn wood harvest table

    Wood taken from a 40 to 50 year old 24 stall horse barn in middle Tennessee. Table top is maple and white oak (white oak is center board), which were the hay loft floor boards, side skirts and braces are red oak, hosre stall braces, and the legs are white oak, taken from the ceiling rafters of...
  14. Closet Organizer

    Built two closet organizers, one for each of my son's closets. The material used is a melamine product purchased at Menards, the finish is Hard Rock Maple. Each organizer required 3 sheets. A matching PVC edge band is available, but it had to be attached with contact cement. The drawers are...
  15. 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...
  16. c table

    Here is a c table or sofa table, a friend of my wife asked me to make. I am not overtly pleased with it but it is supposed to look rustic. I did not get to finish it as she had stain she wants to use to match her other furniture ( not to bummed about that actually ). She was happy with it...
  17. Cabinet Building Jigs

    I'm building some shop carts/cabinets so decided to make a few jigs to help with alignment. These are intended to be used in conjunction with the assembly table I recently made for this purpose. More details are shown in this video:
  18. LEGO table

    Built this for my friend's grandsons. Used 6 lego plates to make the top and surrounded that with bays for pieces. Since I had 4 sons of my own I built a drawer to keep the plans for the LEGO sets so they don't get lost. Spray painted LEGO yellow.
  19. Maple Quilt Rack and Shelf

    My wife requested a Quilt Rack for our son's room, and this is the result. In designing this, I considered the following: 1. I wanted it to look nice with Maple shelves I had previously made for his room. 2. It needed to be large enough to accomodate a 51" wide quilt. 3. I wanted it attach...
  20. Toy Box

    This project was an experiment that turned out… just ok. I copied the Land of Nod Toy Box for this project but built to fit space I wanted. I Used cheap materials by ripping a 2×4 for the legs to make 2×2's (dont sell them where I live - have to make my own), Finished one-side plywood (3/4)...
