  1. Barn Wood Clock

    Had this cool barn board that I wanted to display, but it's kinda weird to just place a board on the wall. So I made it into a clock! The board has been in the barn floor in the haymow for around 80 years. I just thought the grain on the board was good looking enough to be justified as a stand...
  2. Chalkboard Pallet Shelf

    Shelf is made from reclaimed pallet wood. Panels are painted with chalkboard paint. This was my first attempt using my Kreg Jig and I'm now sold on it! Always fun working with reclaimed wood!
  3. Pallet Wine Rack

    Yet another pallet project. Very easy to make.
  4. Refurbished bench using QS white oak

    Not a lot to say here, a neighbor down the road had a free sign next to this and one other similar bench. I stripped the paint, repainted, and used quarter-sawn white oak for the frame/slats. I've never made anything for the outdoors before, not sure how long it will last before it starts to...
  5. DIY Golfers Outfeed Roller

    ........I needed an outfeed roller to use with my dads hand-me-down Craftsman 103.22171 that I spruced-up a bit…... Being a dumpster diver, I snagged 3 ""Titleist Stowaway"" golf bag carts on the roadside. They have soft foam tires and are about 10" in diameter and 3" wide. They are simple...
  6. New handle for a broken hatchet

    Bought a new smith and Wesson hatchet about a year ago and the first time I used it on a camping trip the plastic handle broke and revealed a hollow plastic handle. Wasn't happy.. After sitting in my Alice pack for a year, I pulled it out chiseled away the remaining plastic and fit it with a...
  7. Barn beam band saw boxes (Twins)

    Found a little barn beam in my pile in the machine shed and decided to make some more bandsaw boxes for fun. This small beam was one that was in a pile of other beams that would hold up equipment when changing a tire. I wanted this small beam to have a new life as something useful and...
  8. Refurbished Brace

    Hello. This is a brace I got during the summer. I bought it from an antique store for probably $3. Like most braces, this one was covered in some dirt, rust, and grime. It wasn't until recently that I finally cleaned the brace up. I first used a wire wheel to clean most of the rust and dirt...
  9. Refurbished Drafting Table

    My mom picked up an old drafting table a few years ago at a flea market, and we used it as a beater table in our basement, but when I started to get into woodworking, she offered to send it to California with us to make a project out of it. I wish I had snapped some "before" pics, but it was...
  10. Refurbished Walnut and Oak Pulpit from 1879

    I pastor a church that is 214 years old, and we still have the pulpit from a previous sanctuary that was on the property that dates from 1879. It was made of walnut, but had been covered with some horrible reddish opaque stain back in the 1920's. So, a congregant and I decided to refurbish it...
  11. Barn Ladder Towel Holder

    My wife made a towel holder out of an old ladder that was sanded, stained, and polyed. Used sliding door hardware and big j hooks for the actual towel holders.
  12. Jigs & Fixtures
    First of all sorry if a vise is not classed as a fixture…. so feel free to move this post if it's in the wrong place. Some stage last year I purchased a very sorry looking rusted shut wood working vise from a local man's garage (Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK). I paid the equivalent of $20 US on...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    First, an apology for the length. Just want to be thorough enough. I just bought a Dewalt 717 from Home Depot. This is my first Big tool purchase. I'm building my own shop. I don't know what's acceptable in this circumstance. I'm trying to determine if my Newly priced & received saw is...
  14. Hand Tools
    I was gifted a circa 1907 Stanley 18 low angle block plane. It's missing the eccentric lever or the mouth adjustment lever. I was wondering if someone could help me track down one of these levers or one like the one in this picture. Stanley has discontinued them as a part to buy on there...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello everyone, I found what seems to be a pretty good deal on a powermatic 66 in my area. It's a 5hp 3ph so I will need to swap the motor and switch to single phase, but the top and fence rails concern me. For the table top, all I will need is wd40, sand paper and time right? I will need to...
  16. Scrollsawing
    I'm in the market for a scroll saw, mainly for cutting out bird feeder parts. I dont plan on doing anything intricate NOW, but will probably tinker around with it later of I have the option. I have been looking at Craigslist for a week or so off and on and saw a good deal on an old 4" homecraft...
