  1. Stacking Jewelry Box

    As a Valentine's present this year, I decided to try out a new design that I had been brewing on for a while - a 3-part stacking jewelry box. I decided to have the design coordinate with a previous jewelry box - http://lumberjocks.com/projects/44426 - I had made so they would look nice next to...

    Build Instructions and additional pictures: http://www.instructables.com/id/Rustic-Pumpkin-Lantern/ This triangular pumpkin lantern could be a nice addition to your Halloween décor. To give the lantern an aged timeworn look, the rustic finish uses multiple layers of paint, rough sanding and...
  3. Modern Shoe Bench

    Design This was designed to fit a space by our back door, sized just right so the door doesn't touch it when opened. With a toddler in the house and another on the way, having a place to store shoes and a bench to make it easier to help the kids put them on is key. The main feature of the...

  5. Wooden Crate

    Take a look at my YouTube Video on how I made this wooden crate. I split the video up into two sections ( 1 and 2). In the video I start with a 4×4 reclaimed pine and turn it into this lovely crate. Video - Part 1 - Video - Part 2 - My channel -...
  6. Stackable File Cabinets

    A set of file cabinets I built as a Christmas gift for a friend at work. Made with red oak and stained using Minwax Jacobean, finished using a homemade wipe-on poly. They are actually three separate boxes with 100lb capacity full extension drawer slides. They fit into one another using small...

    I've read the other posts on lumber storage, but didn't seem to find a satisfying answer to the issue of whether to store lumber vertically or horizontally. My lumber supplier does both, but they expect to get rid of the wood pretty fast. I buy the wood and may not use it for a few years...
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I recently purchased an Irwin Marples dado stack from a big box store for $100. I love it's performance so far and I am very happy that I chose this one over the less expensive options. It leaves nice crisp edges when used with a zero clearance insert and the storage case is plenty sturdy. This...

    There can never be too much It seems like everytime someone says that he has "extra" lumber, or "more than enough" people jump to say that there can never be too much, as someone said: "there is no such thing is just enough, and too much is just right". I came upon a shop that closed, and they...

    New Year...New Hobby I have been known to take up a hobby or 37. At 42, on the cusp of 43, and well into the 'balding' years, I have decided that, in lieu of a midlife crisis, I would take up woodworking. Don't get me wrong, a new car and a 27 year old with huge, firm, hands would be wonderful...

    Hi All, my buddy and i are slabbing some beech and the slabs will mostly be between 3 and 4 inches thick. my question is once we get this stuff stacked and stickered, do we need to run ratcheting straps over it to insure that it won't bow or crown? or will it naturally remain fairly stable...

    How effective is a shop vac at collecting the small particles from a miter saw? I'm thinking of building a dust hood to contain the bigger stuff and wondering if a shop vac is going to do much for the small stuff.
