  1. Recycle Bin

    Along similar lines as my Beer Koozie Box, this project was to replace the unsightly white plastic trash can in our kitchen used to hold the recycling. Quick project but definitely looks better and not to mention holds a lot more recycling items. The construction was out of D/Fur 2×4 from, my...
  2. Gun Cabinet Dream

    ========================================================== This project has been moved to the "Blogs". Please post all comments there. Thank you all. ========================================================== Woodworking is like nothing I have ever been interested in. There is something...
  3. Hanging Lamp

    Saw this online and decided to give it a shot. I can't take credit for the idea but I think it turned out well. Cost me $60 as I had all the wood from previous projects and the bicycle wheels were given to me. I turned the mounting plate on my lathe.
  4. Repair of epic failure

    I made this hammer several years ago, Pic 1 and using it hard I had an epic failure. Pic 2. Not want to throw it out I cut some threads on a 1 1/4" oak dowel and the corresponding threads tapped into the mallet head. After same shaping and sanding a new mallet was born. I just love the smell...
  5. Workbench - Gym floor top

    I had a workbench, but it functioned pretty much as an assembly table only, no clamping options, just an mdf torsion box top. I kept the base, made it a bit smaller and built a new top for it. Bought a large section of old gym floor for the main area, encased it with some jatoba flooring, added...
  6. DIY Simple Tennessee shaped pallet sign

    I made a simple pallet sign in the shape of my home state, Tennessee. Using Jigsaw, Tablesaw, Titebond II glue, some old pallet boards and clamps. I downloaded a picture from the Internet, imported it into Inkscape and printed out a pattern. Glued pattern to pallet boards and cutout with a...
  7. Laptop lift

    Tired of hunching over your laptop on your desk, jack it up! I used scraps to build this lift, including an old oak rocker. To help it run cooler, I put a rail on the back so that there is an air space underneath the laptop. Also, the rail puts the keyboard at an angle which makes for more...
  8. Bench fit for a Cabin

    Well, it's going somewhere but it's not going anywhere…. My SIL asked me to make a bench for my BIL; stating that he has always wanted one for their mountain cabin in New Mexico. She knew I dabbled in woodworking and trusted me enough to come up with something after showing me a couple ideas...
  9. Custom XL Sliding Barn Door

    Here's a massive sliding barn door I recently made for a customer. This thing weighs about 400-500 lbs. and is made of steel, birch plywood, and grey hemlock siding from our lot. It measures 64" wide and 105" tall and slides over into a recess the customer had built into the room. We sprayed the...
  10. Wood Shop Cart recycled, Project #2

    A year ago I built a large A frame wood cart for my garage shop. It just took up too much room, so I totally dismantled it last week and put all my lumber on the wall on brackets. I had a bunch of 3/4 baltic birch plywood from the cart, so I decided to do two projects. This is #2, a folding...
  11. Nicks Sticks - Mechanical Puzzle

    This was going to be a fun and challenging puzzle box right from the start, especially since I know a guy named Nick that just loves puzzles! There were two objectives on this one. I wanted to qualify this piece to being something that would fit into my 'Stem to Stern' category, which simply...
  12. iPad Pulpit

    Here's an interesting project. This is a pulpit (podium) for iPad. It's made of reclaimed American Chestnut barn wood, steel, aluminum, and calf skin leather. The chestnut came from a barn we call our "Chestnut Barn" that we tore down in Pennsylvania. The patina on the surface was so nice and...
  13. Bookmark

    This is my latest bookmark. These are much like cutting boards, you make one and suddenly you have an idea of how you can use your odds and bobs that are lying around the shop, to make another, then another, then… They're easy to make, don't use a lot of lumber and people fall all over...
  14. spalted local and recycled woods box + sumac bandsaw box

    This is a box I had started a few months ago, originally to make a music box for my sweetheart. But having found a better alternative in a crafts shop, I had left this one on the workbench for future use. I brought it back home this time, and covered it with a locally found spalted wood (will...
  15. Santa's Workshop - Tea Box Puzzle

    Happy New Year Everyone, My Granny first introduced me into puzzles, ...most likely in an attempt to get me to sit still for more than 5 minutes, haha. Though she is no longer on this plane of existance I have chose to remember and honour her with a 10 design series of puzzle boxes that use...
  16. Reclaimed Wide Plank Heart Pine Barn Wood Flooring

    I milled this floor from our reclaimed "Granary Boards". Most of this wood came from barns in Pennsylvania that were 150-300 years old. I ran the rough boards through the planer and wide belt sander, then ripped it to the correct widths. Then I ran them all through the shaper with a flooring...
  17. Contemporary Reclaimed Barn Wood Side Table

    This contemporary table was one I built for fun. It's made from a reclaimed white oak "door buck" (threshold) from a stack we have at the yard. It's 3" thick and 24"x24". The cube is a 24"x24"x24" steel frame I welded and then had chrome dipped. It's a very simple design. I like having all the...
  18. Wood Storage

    In my small shop, floor space is at a premium so I built this wall system. Storage brackets start at 56" off the ground so that I can store sheet goods below the dimensional lumber. Electrical outlets were installed to be above the sheet goods and below the brackets. The system is lighter than...
  19. House warming gift

    My friend who is a contractor just moved into a new apartment and didn't have anywhere to put his garbage and recycling, so I decided to make him a little island for his kitchen with two garbage roll outs. It was a nice quick project and I had most of the materials left over from other projects...
  20. Super Simple Coat Rack

    Hi Guys, This is a super simple one and I hope you don't mind me sharing. We needed a coat rack at home and "we" wanted something rustic with simple lines. Made from a single piece of Oak, a reclaimed floor board, and using only hand tools. Finished with 3-4 coats of beeswax, buffed in...
