  1. Simple Shopsmith storage shelf

    This shelf and second shelf are part of my continued attempts of a 20 year owner to make storage under the Shopsmith. I have made the accessory shelf in the extra picture from a 2×10 planed to an inch and mounted to a 2×2 bolted to the side. I planed the accessory order to suit my use and...
  2. 1st Wine Bottle Balancer

    I had a piece of walnut from an attempt at a box that was already cut at 45 on both ends. I have been wanting to give this a shot, so here it is. Took a me a few test cuts to get the balance, but as you can see, it works! Used the router table to round over the edges, got a little carried away...
  3. Dovetail Jig Workcenter

    I recently purchased a Porter-Cable 4212 dovetail jig and checked out a great video at woodworkingonline.com when considering various dovetail jig choices (http://www.woodworkingonline.com/2007/04/30/podcast-20-machine-cut-dovetails/ ). Not only did I select the 4212 as a purchase but also...
  4. Scrap Wood Cutting Boards

    Having too much scrap wood can be a good thing, the result of my small hoarding wood problem is a few cutting boards for friends. The wood is a mix of domestic and exotic hardwoods with a several coats of Howards cutting Boards finish. There is small finger holds routed on the sides, I glued...
  5. Shopsmith Router Table

    In the small workshop my Shopsmith has been great. I made years ago a regular router table and it has done many projects. I made this idea for many reasons…first down the road I see moving again and an even smaller workshop so a router table like a Shopsmiith power tool will be needed. Next...
  6. Maple cherry cutting board

    Yes I finally made one for the Wife and Myself. This is number 3. The final size of this came out to 12×15 x 1. The juice grooves were my own plan after we had one from a gift many years ago and really liked them. I really want to give shout outs to 2 sources…#1 Bob Flexner Book...
  7. V Drum Sander Trial

    I have been wanting to build a V Drum Sander and liked the idea that Shipwright had of using a Shopsmith. I built this one as really a trial at finding out how to do some of the things and the problems that I would run into with it. The drum is made of 3/4" plywood that were cut using a hole...
  8. Shopsmith Router Table#2

    Try again to make a compact Router Table. I had the full size router table and that is the green top in the photo and the 2 hp Sears attached to insert about 10×10. Now in my blog and future I will need to give up my router station, so my quest for another table. This is a version from...
  9. Shopsmith Router Table #3

    This should be the easy version to make. Remove your router table top to reuse for this table. I use number 4 electric clips to mount over the rails on the front of the Shopsmith. I found a comfortable height and cut a 2×2 for a front support and it will be clamped in place. one pic shows a...
  10. Osage Orange Walking Sticks

    In 2002, I made these walking sticks and a few others of Osage Orange. While they are finished in lacquer, I was able to produce a very nice shine polishing them with a clean cotton cloth on the lathe. I had hoped the lacquer would prevent the color change but it did not. The handles are made...
  11. sliding dovetail or french dovetail jig

    i was asked to make a shadow box for a friend and after thinking about the design she wanted i thought to myself why not use a sliding dovetail to assemble the frame of it? i will post pictures later on of the shadow box, i have some stuff in front of it to get done like this sliding dovetail...
  12. UnderShopSmith Storage #5

    I am a Shopsmith Owner since 1996 and started with my basement 11 by 20 shop. Now in Shop #5 I am condensing again and have looked at the plans from Hands On for the Under the Shopsmith cabinet. I have the lift assist on the right end and that changes some details also the new 3 inch wheels so...
  13. Maloof Rocker from Claro Walnut

    Early 2018, I looked at making a Maloof Style Rocker as it was one of the things on my bucket list of projects. I looked at pictures and posts on LJ along with the web and at plans. I found two woodworkers who offered both Instruction Manuals and Classes. One was Hal Taylor and the other was...
  14. Cinderella’s Coach Bed | Custom

    This is a bed that was completed in December 2004. The customer wanted a Cinderella theme bed and here is what we came up with. I cut the ribs form sheet stock. I could only get 3 of the ribs out of a sheet of material and the base used a couple sheets there. This project had a lot of waste...
  15. Stand-Up Desk

    Solid oak stand-up desk I built for my home office.
  16. New Shopsmith Tool Shelf 2021

    And here we go again. I was tired of my undercabinet Storage…see in my projects…and went back to the traditional Shopsmith Tool Shelf. I had made one before for my first Shopsmith and planned my tool arrangement not like the company had set up theirs. I use a 2×2 bolted to the holes in the...
  17. Farm Table

    A large oak tree limb fell on our farm during a storm 4 years ago. At the time I used my Alaskan attachment to mill it into boards and this past year I finally made a small kitchen table from it as a Christmas gift for my wife. My first table top with breadboard ends, my first turned table...
  18. New Shopsmith Router Table..again..

    Shopsmith owners are often practical and working in small spaces. I took my recent router table build and added 1 inch dowels to the bottom…by sanding a flat spot and 3 screws. I am using the extension table as a stand and a 3/4 in dowel as an extra leg..Anything could be the leg since the...
  19. Button Box

    My wife wanted a button box. Made it out of Hickory, with an accent of purple heart. I dovetailed the corners using a Porter Cable dovetail through dovetail jig.
  20. picture frame

    My wife wanted a rustic picture frame, I used some of the pallet wood that I had, ran it through the planer and used my Shopsmith 510 to cut the joints. The black marks are nail holes from the pallet. I believe the wood is oak.
