  1. New Member Introductions
    A long time ago (maybe 20+ years) I covered a wall in my shop with eight 4x8 sheets of wood grained pegboard. I now need to replace two of those sheets, but I’ve been unable to locate anyone who sells, or even makes, them now. I believe the original ones came from Home Depot, but neither they...
  2. Workshop Rhybeka's SheShop(tm pending)

    in the process of being built!
  3. Mobile Power/Light Stand

    I found this idea in "501 Best Shop Tips for Woodworkers" by Robert J. Settich. I slapped this together really quickly with only leftovers in the shop. This is really useful and helps keep stuff, including a little extra light and my ear protection nearby. Mark (BTW, sorry for the fuzzy...
  4. lumber cart

    A simple LJ inspired lumber cart. The base is a torsion box to give it strength. So glad this project got done. It has made my shop so much cleaner and neater. Not to mention it's now a lot easier to see what I have and be able to get to it. Thanks for the inspiration guys.
  5. Measure Nonce Cut Once

    I've been turning for three years and I figured that it was time I learned how to do other things. But-I'm more of an artist rather than a mathematician and found that I could measure three times and still get it wrong. Since my husband put up French cleats in our new-ish workshop, I thought...
  6. Woodsmith Router Mortising Jig

    I decided that I needed a mortise jig before I started my next piece of furniture. This should make mortising quick and clean. I took the plans from Woodsmith #147. First picture was before I installed the T-track. Photo 2 shows the 4 adjustment blocks that you use to size the mortises. Photo...
  7. Workshop Cabinets

    These are the cabinets I built for my garage converted to a workshop. There is a bath on the other side of this wall that I was able to plumb a sink into. Cases are pre-finished birch plywood. Doors and drawers fronts are 3/4" Melamine. Cases were pocket screwed together. I used leg levers for...
  8. Hitting the Wall

    this is another tool to use as a Life Guide but this time I adapted it somewhat to focus on the barriers that my daughter's students use in the classroom. On the one side of the walls are some of the excuses that are used as to why something can't be achieved or completed. With these thoughts...
  9. Shop Organization - Materials Cart

    There seems to be a lot of LJs getting starting spring cleaning early, particularly getting their lumber and sheet goods piles under control. About a month ago, I too jumped on the band wagon and finally built the materials cart that I had shared in my blog on SketchUp models for shop...
  10. Taper Jig - Yet Another

    As part of building my materials cart, I need to taper the partitions for the lumber side of the cart. If this was the only taper requirement I had, it would have bee easier to create a one-time jig. But, since I have a few other projects coming up that will need taper cuts too, I decided to...
  11. Handle for Japanese Pull Saw Blade

    A while ago, I ordered my first Japanese Dozuki Saw to realise I had bought a replacement blade only. Today, I took a piece of scrap Oak and made a simple handle to suit my hand. I cut a 2cm section of Galvanised Sheet Steel that I folded to form a spine and fitted it to the blade. I roughly...
  12. DANCE LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING - And shop progress picture

    This is the first tree and bear carving that I have done since the second shop fire. I've got everything I need to make sawdust. The new shop is coming along. Waiting on the electrician and the siding. Then drywall, paint and set the shop up! I've included an update on the shop progress. I call...
  13. Table Saw Router Extension

    Since I have a small shop, I had to optimize my space and take advantage of the Biesemeyer fence's accuracy and make it do double duty. My girlfriend's dad helped me route out the plate recess in his big shop. It was quite the bonding experience. We made a template so that I can make...
  14. The Simplest Tenon Jig

    You don't need a complex jig to make a simple task. I've come up with a jig that requires only three pieces. It works in conjunction with a crosscut sled (photo #2) or a miter gauge outfitted with an auxiliary fence (photo #6). My shown homemade micro-setting jig is a plus to fine tune the...
  15. Drill Press Table

    Well it's been a while since i've posted but rest assured, I have not been idle. I have slowly been acquiring used tools, restoring them and then selling them again slowly increasing efficiency in my shop and increasing my level of enjoyment. I found this Delta drill press for under $100 with a...
  16. Oh NO! Not another one!

    Yes, another router table. Nothing really fancy about this RT. It was made from Oak ply that I bought from HD. It has some rabbit joineries and edge banded with Oak of course. The fence is made of Birch Ply with an UHMW face. The top is from an old solid core door. I ran out of material, that's...
  17. Corner Computer Desk

    This was the first project I built after getting my Steel City tablesaw. It is made from damaged Birch plywood from this discount bin, but being a corner desk I was able to cut around the damaged corner saved big. I just used pine for the trim, and finished with 3 coats Minwax gloss polyurethane.
  18. Pecky Cypress Goodness

    I needed some storage space for tools and such that I don't use that often. So I decided to build some cabinets. I'm a poor bastard so I salvaged some plywood, drawers, and slides from some old cabinets that were demo'd, and thrown in a trash pile on a job I worked on. Brought it home. So I...
  19. New and Improved Shop Dust Pan

    Well, I had to improve my shop dust pan design and add a woodworking theme to it. What else but a hand saw? and a rip saw to boot. Check my previous project for more detail.
  20. Indestructible Dovetailed Shop Trays

    Instead of using plastic containers to gather small stuff around the shop and to free the countertops, I gathered few scraps and made those indestructible trays. Sliding dovetails secure the corners and the bottoms are glued and nailed 1/4" plywood and MDF (no grooves for shop trays). My...
