  1. Projects In Progress
    So my coffee table-top glueup didn’t come out as well as I was hoping. All the boards are even edge-to-edge, but I have a little crown here and a little cup there. And decent warp of ~1/4” from corner to corner. Sucks to be me. Or maybe not. On a hunch, I put my 24” straight edge on our kitchen...
  2. Desktop Bag Toss

    This mini indoor version of Baggo or Bean Bag Toss is designed to sit on a desktop or tabletop and well sized for a typical office cube. It is a fairly simple project - easy to build. The free plans are available on our web page here . We also made three videos giving a blow-by-blow account of...
  3. Adjustable tabletop book rack

    Few years ago, when I was looking for ideas for my hanging bookshelf project, I have stumbled upon two very interesting book racks - by RDR_82 and by Bob, both made as part of woodworking classes. I liked the idea, but it wasn't the right size for my needs at that time. Now, two years later, I...
  4. Bowtie splines

    Hey everybody, I got this piece of wood as a christmas gift, however after planing the surface down a bit of checking had become apparent. I decided instead of filling the cracks with resin as I was originally planning, I would try doing bowtie splines instead. These are my first attempt, so...
  5. DIY Wooden Game Board

    I made a wooden game board for one of my favorite 2-player board games: The Duke from Catalyst Game Labs. The Duke is a 2 player abstract strategy game. In some ways, it is similar to chess. For more details about The Duke visit the official website for the game where you can find the rules and...
  6. Wanut Table Top

    My father has a Singer sewing machine treadle base that had a glass table top and he wanted me to make him a new top out of Walnut. The Top is 36" x 22" x 3/4" My hardwood dealer had an 11" wide board of 4/4 Black Walnut with an interesting figure and sap wood combination that was perfect for...
  7. Walnut Tabletop

    We tore down a wall and installed a bookshelf base for this walnut tabletop. I overbuilt the base because I wanted to adequately support this massive top. Dimensions are 46" wide, 56" long and over 1.5" thick The walnut was air dried for two years. It worked very well with hand tools. After...
  8. Router Table and Fence | DIY build

    I got my hands on a router lift a while back and I've been wanting to make a router table for it ever since. I finally finished the build of this 36×24 inch table. It's top is melamine, laminated with 3/4 plywood to help keep it dead flat. I also made a custom fence using the same lamination...
  9. D&D Magnetic Dice Towers and Holders Made for Friends

    So a couple years ago, after about a 25 year Hiatus, I started playing D&D with some friends. A few were completely new to the game and a couple used to play in High School/College, like I did, so it's been a fun mix. I made a magnetic Dice Tower for myself patterned after the excellent design...
  10. Reclaimed Red Oak Countertop

    Here's a project where we wanted to make the old wood look new. We have a pile of red oak I've been making countertops and tables from. Here I laminated a bunch of 3/4×2" strips together to create a long grain butcher block countertop. It sure is nice having a widebelt sander for projects like...
  11. Mud room bench

    I recently made a custom mud room bench for someone. They required a top lid that acts as a bench and functional lid. I also created two functional doors. It's not something you see everyday but I enjoyed working on it. The unit also includes removable shelves for seasonal storage (bbq...
  12. Light_Box

    The goal of this project was to create a permeable shell around a light source. The shell would allow light to escape in specific voids in the shell. What remains is a horizontally oriented shell where the void and occupied space are dimensionally equal. The maple strips are joined on the...
  13. My 1st project - Dog Crate Furniture

    So I made the plunge to get into woodworking over the Christmas break. My son is getting a dog, and I thought I would make a furniture dog crate (something a little nicer than 2×4's). It's my first project, and I hoped the dog wouldn't mind if I messed it up a bit. I did a walnut top and oak...
  14. Family Crest

    The design for this project was extracted from various generic family crests, whose design elements (in my opinion) were crude at best. I improved on the various elements, and created my own. I used a particularly beautiful piece of black walnut (~8" x 11") which was very dense. It took a year...
  15. Tabletop Humidor

    So this was my first shot at making a "small" box and using "hard" wood. The exterior of the tabletop humidor is oak with a dark stain, and 3 coats of poly. The interior is Spanish Cedar, with the bottom Cedar pressure fit, and the top cedar glued to the lid. This project also was my first...
  16. Three projects

    These are 3 project for my granddaughters room. A headboard, a table and a vanity. The headboard was sitting in my shop, unpainted, when my granddaughter saw it and asked, "wheres the crown"? So I added the crown. The flower table has a secret compartment held closed by a magnet. The vanity now...
  17. Slotted Folding Chair

    Hello all, This was the second project I made in my high school shop class, it's been sitting for a year or two so I thought I'd bring it out and take pictures; it's made out of many pieces of ash. It is bound by metal wire which was the hardest part of the entire project as far as making a...
  18. walnut kitchen countertop

    Have finally installed recently completed kitchen countertop. It's made of two walnut glue-up panels, each with an extension which meet behind the oven range and are connected with a countertop connector. The seam is behind the oven and not really visible. The panels are 25" × 13" and 25" ×...
  19. Table top

    I've had this table for about 10 years. It used to have a glass top, but it mysteriously exploded by itself… I made this replacement from walnut, and finished with danish oil. When shaping the edge, I first rasped and sanded it to a hardline (to see if I could, free-hand…), but decided it would...
  20. Wheel Base for B&D Workmate

    That B&D Workmate is such a handy tool, but heavy to move about, especially when I have a tool on it. It is of a great height for things like my sander or planer. Lower than bench top height. I got this idea somewhere and finally got a round tuit. Just took a 3/4 plywood and cut to square...
