  1. Wooden Shop Squares

    Squares of all kinds are an important shop tool. but sometimes just the exercise of building your own tool helps you better understand that tool on a deeper level. A couple months ago Chris Schwarz over at Pop Wood Magazine got my attention when he started blogging about a square Patrick Leach...
  2. Dutch Tool Chest

    This is my completed dutch tool chest. It was built mostly according to Schwarz's plans in Popular Woodwoorking though I added a little drawer to the side for my oily rag in a can (a la Paul Sellers). Need to complete the tool holding components yet but the box itself is finished. Held together...
  3. Schwarz style three leg stool

    Finally wrapped up my Chris Schwarz stool. Lots of mistakes but it's finished and solid but not pretty. I need to try again. The second one is a Steve Carmichael type with joint mods.
  4. Baby anarchists tool chest

    My version of Chris Schwarz's tool chest. I replicated certain aspects of it by just viewing others chests , the exact dimensions however are my own. It is made of pine and has a cedar panel for the lid. I made this chest around a year and half ago so my tools have been upgrades significantly...
  5. Folding book/tablet stand

    The stand is made following Christopher Schwarz's description in Popular Woodworking June 2018. Walnut with Danish oil finish. Not too difficult but I did have issues with not being careful enough with radiuses on the ends of pieces. I was not being precise enough and the holes were not the...
  6. Knockdown Chris Schwarz Cherry Desk with Inlay

    This one took a while, but mostly because some of the smaller projects got interwoven into the project stream. This is a modification of Christopher Schwarz' staked worktable from the Anarchist's Design Book at Lost Art Press. I HIGHLY recommend supporting Lost Art Press. If you don't want...
  7. School Box / Sewing Box

    The school box / sewing box build is finished. I built it for my oldest daughter's 16th birthday present and she was very tickled with it. It is made from Curly Red Oak with a White Pine bottom (so it will have that wonderful pine scent when you open it) and air dried Black Walnut mouldings. The...
  8. Holtzapffel-inspired Workbench (on a budget)

    This is a workbench project that was based on Christopher Schwarz's design for the Holtzapffel Workbench. I followed it loosely, making the following more major changes to it: -Made the stretchers closer to the floor. They are about 3" away from the floor. In another of Schwarz's designs, he...
  9. Sawbench: Inspired by Chris Schwarz

    This Sawbench was inspired by the many excellent Chris Schwarz blogs on Lost Art Press. Since I have two young children (ages 8 and 6), the majority of my woodworking occurs after their bedtime. And power tools really aren't an option at that hour. I'm not complaining in the least. There's...
  10. The weekend bench

    Okay, unveiling the bench here in completed project land. Now that it has the finish on it I can call it complete (not sure a bench ever is, so this is as good a land mark as I can get). For those who visit the blog section the bench is nothing new…...
  11. Dining table with wane edge book matched spalted figured maple top

    The better part of thirty years ago, a group of local woodworkers organized a bulk purchase of figured maple. When I arrived (late) to help unload the trailer, I found these two book matched/spalted boards discarded in a snow bank ! They were in pretty poor shape but I thought I could make use...
  12. Craftsman Bed

    Hey Guys, I made this Craftsman style bed for my wife and I last winter. It was a big step up from a matress on the floor! I use plainsawn red oak for my Craftsman projects because white oak doesn't grow in my part of the world. (Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada) I suppose I could order it...
  13. 6 Board Chest

    This is a six board chest I made based on a Schwarz article in PW. All made with 1×12's from HD. It took two of them to make this chest. Pretty much all done with hand tools: cross cuts, joinery, and surfacing. I used a cambered jack to leave the surface undulations and plenty of tear out...
  14. Saw Bench

    Sawhorse built from an 8' construction grade douglas fir 2"x12" loosely following one of Chris Schwarz's plans/articles. I ran out of lumber so I used a piece of scrap 2"x6", which is noticeably lighter. I guess I should have purchase a 12' board - oh well. Leg-top joints are reinforced with...
  15. Japanese Tool Chest for my dominos

    My wife got tired of the little tin box that our domino set came in - the lid didn't latch down, so she had to wrap a large rubber band around it when we took it on travel. She asked me to make a wooden box for them with a "secure lid". At the time, I was reading Christopher Schwarz' posts...
  16. Staked Sawbenches

    This is from the Schwarz's new book. http://lostartpress.com/collections/books/products/the-anarchists-design-book. Top is Ash and legs are soft maple. One set has square and one set has octagon. They don't really look it but they are pretty sturdy. I really like the method of making tapered...
  17. Sawbench

    For Christmas I received the "Build a Sawbench" DVD and this is the result. One is made from a SPF 2×10 that had been well acclimatized to the shop, the other was from rough sawn pine, fir and an unidentified wood that I think was red elm. These were a great learning experience for me, and was...
  18. My first "real" project - Roubo Workbench

    As a hobbyist woodworker, I try learn one new thing with each project. My "new thing" can be learning to use a new tool, or a new technique. This project had a few firsts for me. - First time using mortise and tenon joinery (first time building anything without screws or nails actually). - First...
  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    All, I am brand new here. I have been reading for some time and have gained great knowledge from you all. I have searched for this specific question but I haven't had any luck in finding any thing. I am getting ready to build builtin's for my new home. We have moved in and this is one of...
  20. Marketplace Classifieds
    Hello all, A friend of mine called and asked if I could help him sell his new never used bandsaw. It is a Laguna LT24 17. He is also including a new Laguna Resaw King carbide blade with it. He bought it a couple of years ago intending to expand his type of woodworking and has since changed his...
