    Arm Rests DISCLAIMER: Before I start this blog, I want to make sure everyone knows that I am NOT a professional sofa/furniture builder. I just took on this project because 1) I needed a sofa and 2) because I thought it'd be really fun and satisfying if I built my own sofa. This is all my own...

    In the Beginning... This is my most ambitious project to date. I'm going to make a Greene & Greene sofa table that closely follows the design of premier G&G LJ Darrell Peart. I pinged him the other day, and he sent me to American Furniture Design Co. to buy plans. As you can see, they're not...

    Design and tools Well, let me start by saying this is my very first post. I love designing new furniture (Dressers, Couches, Tables, Cribs, Shelves, Beds, Etc.) and have found it a real joy building what I design. I unfortunately do not have any professional tools or many tools in fact, but...

    Windows and Doors by Hand With so many places to post, I've decided to do my "main" blogging on my own site, http://dcwwoodworks.com. So this LJ's "blog" will be a place for me to crosspost HERE for those of you (ok, almost all of you) who aren't going over THERE. Thanks. My latest is a post...

    Vape pen stand As an amputee I have intense phantom pain that only a relief vape can stop. If you lay them on their side all the juice pools on the side instead of at the base of the wick. The vape pens themselves have a small, tippy, footprint that easily falls over even if your hand is steady...

    Sofa Frustrated For several months now, I have been admiring a couch I found in a local furniture store. I absolutely LOVE the design and the way the pieces fit together. I like that it is deep enough to be good for cuddling, which also means it has enough depth to handle long legs...

    Calling all turners! I'm looking for a good home made formula for a food safe finish for salad bowls. I know the old stand by is veggy oil but I'm looking for something that has a little better protection and a nice sheen.

    Hi there. I recently bought a second hand craftsman table saw model #113.298761. The stock rip fence leaves a lot to be desired in my book. I have heard that the Delta T2 fence will fit this saw. If so what kind of mods are required? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I am debating between a couple biscuit joiners (Porter-Cable 557 and Makita 3901) and am wondering if anyone who uses either or both of these brands can give me some feedback to tip the scales one way or the other. I've never used a biscuit joiner and do not have access to a store that carries...

I recently purchased a Jet 10" jointer/planer combo and I don't want to mess up the knives on it. Can I go ahead and start...
