  1. The last project of 2013, and the First project of 2014!

    A few days before new years eve the door on my snowblower shed finally broke. Now I know what you're thinking "A shed just for a snow blower? Tha'ts just crazy… brilliant, but crazy!". At my old house I could drive the snowblower out of my garden shed door up to the driveway, but when we...
  2. A Suitcase Dog Car Ramp

    A Suitcase Dog Gar Ramp My niece's dog is getting a bit old and has difficulty jumping into the boot of the CRV, so she asked me if there's any way to make a ramp for him. Four hours later this is what I came up with… A Suitcase Dog Car Ramp idea that she can keep in her car or carry with her...
  3. First Commissioned Project

    When a friend of mine mentioned to her parents that I was a woodworker, they asked if they could hire me for a small job. When they told me it was building ramps for their barn, I thought it sounded way over my head (not to mention more of a construction job than a woodworking job), but, not...
  4. Roll away "over the stairs" ramp

    Roll away "over the stairs" ramp I made this ramp for my church. It's used for short periods to move chairs using a dolly. It has wheels so that it can easily be moved into position and put away when finished. A rope is used to raise and lower it. It stores in the upright position. It's...
  5. Kids HotWheels Ramp

    Other projects put on hold for me as of Dec 1st. This was a quick build (for me at least), being completed in 15 days. The little man is obscessed with racing cars, and this creates a big race-way with finish line for him and his buddies. Designed after the ones at LegoLand if anyone has ever...
  6. Dog Ramp

    This was a quick project built out of necessity for my in-laws. Their highly active pooch is aging quickly. Per the doctor's orders, she can no longer jump up and down from the back of the SUV. We threw this together in a couple of hours last Friday. It is made of 1/2" ply, 2 door hinges, glue...

  9. Pickup truck ramp for moving equipment or piano

    I made this ramp to load a piano into the truck. It is made from 2×10 SYP eight feet long with two aluminum brackets rated for 700 pounds each. I added two five foot sections underneath to add more rigidity, plus the two side rails. It worked fine with a 500 pound piano plus four people...

    This is my new tablesaw built from 5/8" MDF in a Torsion Box design. It is 72" x 72" x 4"and has built in cabinets for my DeWalt Planer and Delta Joiner for easy access. The table is covered in Formica for a nice smooth surface. The saw sits on a 3/4" plywood platform that has 4x jacking...
  11. Parents New Access Ramp

    With my parents both being up in their 80's, they have a hard time with stairs these days. This is the ramp I built for them, to access the front porch. Nothing fancy, just pt 2x's and 5/4 decking boards. Basic, but functional.
  12. Heavy duty Pick up truck ramps for removing really heavy stuff...

    This is a set of ramps that I built last weekend so that I could remove an 800# welder from my pickup truck. This ramp interfaces with the open tail gate of my truck and provides a flat surface so that heavy objects can be safely rolled down to the ground. In this case the ramp was used in...
  13. Tapering Jig v1

    The alcove in the back of my garage where I store the tablesaw sits on a 3" high concrete pad, so one of the first things I made after getting the saw was this tapering jig so I could cut up 2×4s to make a simple ramp to get it down onto the garage floor. I based it mostly on the Rockler jig as...
  14. A Wheelchair Ramp, Not a Moment To Soon

    A friend of mine recently retired (last week) has a 92 year old mom that needed to get up a few steps. So she asked me if my LJ bro and I would build a ramp. The result works very well. Covered the 3/4 inch c/dx plywood with green indoor outdoor. Had some some left over t-111 for the skirt...
  15. Radial Arm Saw Move

    Before building the hothouse, I bought the radial arm saw and used it on our front porch to cut the lumber for the hothouse. Here's how I moved the saw from the porch to the hothouse without having to lift it. 1. Built a pair of ramps. 2. Rolled it down from the porch onto my DR Powerwagon. 3...
  16. Router Table Extension Cabinet and top.

    So continuing in my "too fancy for a shop", or "over the top" shop furniture . . . I present my router table extension cabinet thing. I originally had a Rockler extension table that I didn't like for a couple reasons. But the main issue was that there was all that unused space underneath it...
  17. Charging Rhino

    Grandpa Santa saw this rhino and I just had to make one. It is fun to watch it walk down the ramp. Here is where I got the info: http://blog.dugnorth.com/2010/09/plans-to-make-ramp-walking-wooden-rhino.html
  18. Pet Ramp

    We have an aging Jack-Russell Terrier that was showing signs of difficulty on her pet stairs. As an alternative, I decided to build a ramp for her to climb up onto the bed with. The concept was simple enough, though I wanted to incorporate some elegance into it - as well as lighten the weight...
  19. Shed Ramp

    Build Instructions: http://www.instructables.com/id/Shed-Ramp/ My garage was starting to get cramped so I decided I needed a shed for the lawn/garden equipment. I thought about building one but bailed and decided to purchase a 10' x 14' shed with 6' wide doors from the nearby Amish community...
  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Howdy everyone, this is my first time posting, in fact it's my first time on this site, but I've been reading around and it seems like a nice community. So, I needed a new project and after much deliberation I've decided I'm going to construct my own Eames style lounge chair. But so far I only...
