  1. Wall-Mount Lumber Rack (Mullet-Style)

    How to Build a Wall-Mount Lumber Rack (on YouTube) My workshop will always need to be a garage first and woodworking shop second. To help with my lumber storage, I decided to build my own lumber rack. I scoured Pinterest for ideas, but I couldn't quite find a design that mounted to a wall while...
  2. Saw Till

    Just finished a quick saw till to get them off the benchtop and make some room. Details on the blog.
  3. Storage box for glass

    A coworker of mine commissioned this box for glass storage for stained glass project prices. It's super simple 3/4 ply with dowel joints and thru dados for 1/4 ply dividers which were shaped to allow for easy access. The dividers are a snug fit, but are not glued if the need ever arises for...
  4. Another Shop Project...Homemade trash can cyclone

    This homemade trash can cyclone is designed from Thien's plans. A lot of you might have already heard and seen his homemade cyclone idea before. I'm here to say it's the best dust collection system for the price. I hope some large company doesn't come along and somehow steal his idea; he...
  5. How To Make A Handsaw Caddy

    It's been quite a while since I've been able to post anything on here. It's good to be back. This is a shop project that's been a long time coming. I wanted all of my handsaws to be in one place so I made this handsaw caddy. I based the design on some plans I downloaded from somewhere. I'm sure...
  6. tablesaw workbench

    Soooo…. this just happened. I have spent the past couple weeks optimizing and improving my table saw capacity. Creating a dedicated system for my saw was priority #1. Made out of 2×4's, plywood subbase top, with melamine top. had to split top due to rack/pinion fence track of the dewalt...
  7. Easy To Make Forstner Bit Stand

    Hello LJs! I've got a sweet and simple project this time. A Forstner bit stand. As usual, I made a super short video of how I did it. The whole thing is made from some scrap 1/2" plywood that was left over from another project. It can be made in less than an hour. Not much more to say than...
  8. Some shop upgrades

    First pic is my dust collector for the new Rigid shop vac I just bought. Thanks to everyone who built one before me. Mine is not pretty but it works very well. After sweeping up about 7 gallons of mainly MDF dust, the filter was still very clean. Number 2 is my new drill press table, Mdf...
  9. Hat Rack for My Son

    My first lumberjocks project. My three-year-old son likes hats and doesn't have a way to display them so I thought I'd make him a rustic hat rack. This is made entirely of cedar from my parents' farm. I had a little difficulty getting the pegs to sit flush with the board but I decided to just go...
  10. Cutoff Cart - Modular

    Function: This Cutoff Cart fits my work style. It has a convenient home under the TS extension, and next to the RAS. As you can see, each module can be picked up and brought to a comfortable height for choosing a piece of wood or culling them. Each module has a rod handle at the front so that...
  11. Radial Arm Saw Upgrades and Work Station

    Currently in my shop I am limited on my number of larger tools. I have a miter saw that I have been using for all of my cross-cuts and a circular saw for ripping down sheet goods. However, after watching many videos on Youtube of the capabilities of a radial arm saw, and hearing Jay Bates say he...
  12. Shop Projects

    I moved from a garage workshop to a dedicated basement room workshop. These are a few projects that I completed for the new shop area. I focused a lot more on dust collection. I modified a harbor freight dust collector so the fan sits on a new cabinet. The cabinet has a 2X2 frame on the...
  13. Hand Tools
    As some of you probably already know I am restoring a Stanley type 4 no 7. A couple of weeks ago I gave it a citric acid bath and removed all rust. I plan on doing touch ups with pontypool asphaltum and while I wait for that to arrive I decided to move on to the tote and knob. Both are in decent...
  14. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hello Lumberjocks, I have been lurking for years and have benefitted greatly from seeing your projects and watching your discussions. Thank you! I have been working on a new Sysport and before I start making dust I would like to see if you could improve on my ideas. An image from my SketchUp...

    Trying out a Try square I decided to make my own try square, in the spirit of the hand tool extravaganza I've been into lately. I saw an article by Adam Cherubini on making them, I think in popular woodworking. (If somebody has a link to the issue, let me know!) I don't have the article...

    Cart Carcass I bought a compressor last week; a PC 3 nailer combo pack. With the limited space I have in the shop, portability is a necessity. Wood magazine had a plan for a compressor station in a back issue that I had so I decided to build their model. I spent a few hours last night cutting...

    Lets get started Well… It just wouldn't be me if I didn't share pics of my first "workshop". Many of you have already seen it… But here it is again. Yep. that's where I got my start. Working outside on a stack of pallets and some plastic tables. Of course, when it was too hot outside I...

    Sanding Blocks I've had a kind of crappy blue plastic borg sanding block for some time, and I've been lazy and switched out the paper. I don't use it too often, but its finally given up the ghost and won't really stay closed any more. I decided to make myself some proper ones with a nice cork...

    Shop Project Efforts Hey Everyone, I hit a snag with my outfeed table last night and figured I'd write about it. A couple weeks ago I made a hinged outfeed table for my table saw. It worked out great and I have been using it with great success until now. What I realized last night was that I...

    Table Saw Router Station for SawStop Contractor Saw Taking inspiration from zzzzdoc, tedth66, Jeremy Greiner, and others (here, here, and here), I am setting out on a mission to create a Table Saw Station for my SawStop Contractor saw. The reasons for the project are similar to theirs: I...
