  1. Tailgate TV Console (on Truck Cargo Carrier)

    This is the first official 'woodworking' project that I have completed. I have been working with wood for a several years but mostly building decks and finishing the basement. This project came out of a need for a TV to watch while we tailgate in Athens at UGA games. It's essentially a 3/4"...
  2. Football and helmet routed bowls

    Hey football fans, here is something you all could use for those tailgate parties, Thanksgiving football and playoff, super bowl parties. As you can tell they are football and football helmet bowls. The football measure 10 1/2×18 and the helmet is 12×14. The football is made from sapele which...
  3. Tailgate Bench

    This was another luck of the find projects. I came across this Chevrolet pickup tailgate at the local salvage yard and couldn't resist getting it just to make it into a bench. It seats 4 and has a lot of character. Combined with some salvaged wood, it turned into the perfect county-chic...
  4. Ford Tailgate Bench

    Bench made from an old Ford pick-up truck tailgate and a cedar wood frame. The tailgate and the wood are both reclaimed. The tailgate has been lightly sanded to remove loose rust and then sealed to help prevent further rusting. The frame is all cedar that was reclaimed from a wall that was...
  5. Dodge Tailgate Bench

    This is a bench made from an old Dodge puck-up truck tailgate with a metal angle frame and pine wood seat and arms. The tailgate and the wood are both reclaimed; the tailgate obviously reclaimed from an old Dodge pickup, the metal from was part of an old garage door setup and the wood was...
  6. Truck Bed Extender

    I got tired of either having lumber shoot out the back of my truck because I didn't tie everything down right, or spending half an hour tying things down until my paranoia was satisfied, so I started looking into commercial tailgate guards and bed extenders (my truck bed is six feet, just over...
  7. Tailgate Bench

    I made this tailgate bench for my brother for his birthday. The tailgate is from a 1950 Chevy truck that he restored. The bench is made from pine and the seat is made of cypress. The license plate is an Indiana 1963 truck plate (1963 is his birth year).
  8. Mini Cornhole

    Mini cornhole game built as a wedding gift for friends. Their wedding was held at a resort in Mexico and we carried this down with us to play on the beach. What a blast! Its also great for the basement in the winter when you can't play the full size version outside. If you get inspired to...
  9. Early chevy truck front end and box

    I see a lot of tailgate benches and really like the concept and thought why not just build one. This project is loosely based on Chevy trucks from the 30s and 40s. I decided to take it a couple steps farther and make it look like the back of the box was cut off. After I did that I thought I need...
  10. Tailgate Bottle Tote

    Thanks to Kiefer. His recent tote inspired me to make this one. This was made out of 2 spalted oak boards that were sawn 2 ways….plain-sawn and quarter-sawn. The dividers are slightly oversized in length and width so that they stay in place but can also be removed to just have a carry box...

    I bought a Stanley #4, type 11 (I think) plane on a garage sale, I want to make it a user plane. I replace the handle with a later model, the japaning is at 90%. The cutter is a later model (after 1935). I need the chipbreaker and the levercap, or the little plate that goes behind the lever on...

    Walnut Wood - I just need to know... Does anyone else - when working with black walnut - think it smells delicious? I just want to eat it whenever I'm cutting it. I was recently cutting out a ball blank from a glue-up of walnut, maple, and wenge, the latter two of which don't really have a...

    Introduction Hello Everyone. I have been enjoying lots of posts and classes on this website and I wanted to contribute something as well. I have built many cornhole sets over the past 7 years since my father, sister and I built our first. I believe our current design is great for a portable...

    Cutting and Installing the leg slot Cut the last 4 foot piece three times. Cut two one foot legs first, then measure and cut the top piece. It should be about 22.5" or so. Put the legs in the leg slot. Make sure to leave enough room for the legs to slide in and out even after they are...

    I am new to this site and fairly new to wood working. I am looking at upgrading my current Dewalt Contractor style tablesaw to something a little more robust with a larger crosscut/rip capacity. I have been looking around craigslist for some used units hoping to find a bargain. Today I just...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    We are restoring our old '56 F-150 and my mechanic was lamenting the rusted out edges of the tailgate. I noticed that it was just the size for some 4/4 wood. The $64,000 question is…. What type of wood would be the best? The truck belongs to my wife, who would like a lighter wood, like our...
