  1. Custom XL Sliding Barn Door

    Here's a massive sliding barn door I recently made for a customer. This thing weighs about 400-500 lbs. and is made of steel, birch plywood, and grey hemlock siding from our lot. It measures 64" wide and 105" tall and slides over into a recess the customer had built into the room. We sprayed the...
  2. Wine bottle stops

    Here are some of my favorite wine stops. These are so much fun to make and people really love them as gifts. I always keep some of the hardware around to turn one out for a quick gift. Much easier if you purchase or make a mandrel. I made mine by cutting the head off a bolt that had the same...
  3. Unique Spinning Stops for my New Tapering and Jointing Jig

    Lately I built and posted my new tapering and jointing jig. I wanted to add adjustable stops but my thought about sliding stops wasn't set as the most effective type be to used for identical repetitive cuts. As shown, my design started with a 3/4" MDF 5" disk. Two carriage bolts, two washers...
  4. Reclaimed Grey Barn Siding Sliding Door

    Here's a nice looking grey siding covered sliding barn door we did. This wood came from Iowa. This cool door covers the entry to a pantry and uses our 8″ v groove wheel hardware. I love this oversized hardware. It glides so smooth. I used the new style black phenolic door guide I recently...
  5. Getting wood from cutting logs.

    I've got a big cheesy grin from this project. I picked up my first bandsaw a couple months ago. So it wasn't long before the "thrifty" side of me decided that yeah, picking up old wood and pallets was fine… but you know… there's an awful lot of free wood in the form or trees hanging around. And...
  6. Bedside Table

    With over 12" of snow yesterday, my woodworking is done for the year! I did manage to squeak one more in though. This project was entirely of reclaimed wood from the dismantled loft bed project. All the wood is dimensional pine construction lumber, nominal 2×6. In all, there were two pieces...
  7. Mushroom Wood and Red/Grey Hemlock Siding Sliding Barn Door

    The sliding doors I make allow me to put multiple types of wood surfaces on each side of the door so it can blend with whatever motif the customer has in the room(s). On one side of this door is our reclaimed mushroom wood siding that we surfaced and lacquered. The other side is reclaimed...
  8. Calico Sliding Barn Door

    This door was featured in North Vally Magazine and East Valley Magazine as well as Scottsdale.org. It has reclaimed barn wood material from 3 different states. It's a huge door! Weighs a lot. It has a flat lacquer finish and the steel has a special rusty patina and lacquer on it. Custom...

    This Old Bench of Mine - New Bench Stops My Dad made this bench in about my last year of school, or perhaps shortly thereafter. It's made of some scrap pine that he got from somewhere. He made the vice too, complete. It is an interesting design. We didn't have enough wood for the full...
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    My first forum post! Need some assistance. Just put a riser on my 1 hp 14 inch grizzly and put the blade they included on the saw. Read that tension should be light on the blade. Did some practice cuts attempting to get the smoothest cut. Cutting 3/4 fir plywood and making a thein baffle...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've been thinking for a long time about making a V-drum sander. I've got a tiny shop, so space is a premium. I have a Delta bench grinder and rarely use it. I want to keep it for when I do actually need it, but the idea of giving it double duty really appeals to me. The motor speed at its...
  12. Focus on the Workspace
    My makita miter saw has a nice feature where I can flip a little stop near the big hinge of the saw and it prevents it from going down all the way when you cut. This allows me to nibble away wood to make a nice rabbit. I know there are a bunch of other ways to do this, but this one works for...

    I am having an issue with Centerline full extension drawer slides (like Accuride). Older versions of Centerline slides had black rubber stops to keep the drawer closed. They worked fine, but closed a little hard sometimes. The new stops are grey, and close softly. However, they don't keep...
