  1. Projects Shop Built Table Saw Mobile Base

    My neighbor brought over an 8’ 1x4 piece of fir the contractors left after working on his house and asked if I could find a use for it. Of course being a woodworker I knew I could and decided to make something I needed/could share for others who may need to move stuff around in their small...

    Build it for a friend that had only a shelf and a hanging rod in it.
  3. twin bed

    this is twin bed I have been build for my niece over the last 8 months. It started out as just a bed with the three large drawer in the base and then was decide it need a head board to look finished and then came the foot board with spice racks built in for her nail polish and the fold down...
  4. Scrollsaw Blade Holder

    Just a quick weekend project - I needed a new blade holder for the scroll saw. I found a source online where I could buy poly-acrylic test tubes fairly cheap so I ordered a couple dozen. Once they arrived I searched the scrap pile until I found some pretty nice pieces - nothing fancy though...
  5. Table Saw Dust Collector

    As I've posted before, I tend to take equipment, and materials work the best they can for my needs. I have gone to a whole new level now with permanent, "fixed"(I hope), dust collection. I have a "screamer" table saw that I built a massive rolling workbench for, with miter slots, and storage. I...
  6. Bench & Shoe Rack

    This is a simple piece that I made for use by our entry door. The purpose is to clear up the clutter and give a place to sit while putting on or taking off shoes. The wood is white ash. The finish is natural Danish Oil and polyurethane, to protect against water, mud, snow and such. This...

  8. Child's Dr. Suess Style Bookcase

    I built this bookcase about 13 years ago and it was the hardest project I had done at the time because of the crazy angles. It's made with MDF, red oak, .25" hardboard and .75" plywood. I designed this to fit the "Dr Suess" themed room my wife and I painted for our son.
  9. Scraper Shaves (from ShopNotes issue 112)

    Ok I just have way too much time on my hands, What a great thing! JasonD and Karson posted their versions of the scraper shaves from ShopNotes issue #112 and being the copycat that I am decided that I needed to make some of my own. I used oak for the insert and some mystery wood for the handles...
  10. Table Saw Knee Switch

    The magnetic on/off switch that came on my table saw is so small that it is a safety hazzard to turn it off. The last thing I need while cutting a large sheet of plywood or whatever…..is to divert my attention from the blade to fumble around with the on/off switch…..oops! there goes a finger! I...
  11. 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...
  12. Trash Can Cabinet

    Made from solid pine with polyurethane finish.
  13. Homemade toy for the child

    Hello, friends . Today my little son asked me to make a toy for him. I went to the workshop and performed it. He was very happy.

    EDIT: Holy cow we made it to the Daily Top 3! Thanks everyone - make sure you check out the full video build here: This community is truly amazing. I think a few of you saw my first post yesterday - a butcher block desk that I could have been more thrilled to share with the world and your...
  15. Thin-Strip Jig & Alignment Gauge Combo Prototype

    Peeling back the onion another layer. To build my taper jig, I needed to cut a runner to fit in the miter track and guide the taper jig. I started to pull out my thin-strip jig that I made some time ago but decided that I should first install the PALS Contractor Saw Alignment System and align...
  16. Bedroom furniture

    Childhood twin beds and dresser. After years of storing the twin beds in the basement, I decided to use the hard rock maple wood!! So, after six weeks, I had the two night stands done. Then used the remaining frame, cut to half the length for dog bed! Then, driving home I spotted a dresser on...
  17. Table Saw Storage

    Here is a solution I came up with for capturing the storage potential under my contractor saw… Dust collection comes to the cupboard under saw… the back up the saw needs to be sealed up to create more velocity and targeted DC. The far right bottom drawer will be used to store saw blades… a...
  18. 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...
  19. Cutting out for faceplate on table saw

    I knew eventually that this would have to be done so I took care of what I thought would be a difficult task. It turns out it wasn't that hard at all. With a few tips from the forums I quickly had a faceplate on my rebuilt table saw. Thanks guys! I simply put pieces of cedar strips left from...
  20. Sheet Music Shelf

    I built this for my daughter-in-law to her specifications. She's a concert violinist who needed a simple shelf to store her sheet music. The limited space in their small apartment made it necessary for me to go vertical rather than horizontal as she had first wanted. I managed to hold to the...
