  1. Zero Clearance for Circular saw

    I lowered the base plate of the circular saw until the blade didn't stick through. I used heavy duty double sided tape to adhere a 3/16 inch scrap birch ply piece. I then turned on the saw and lowered it through the birch ply creating the zero clearance. As you can see in the last picture I...
  2. Trio of Bandsaw Boxes

    I threw these together a few weeks ago using some scrap lumber and plywood I had lying around the shop. The focus was to create some different shapes and play around with the bandsaw. Tung oil and paste wax was used for the finish.
  3. Drop down spray booth w/ exhaust fan for woodshop

    The spray booth is 11'x11' with 10'6" ceiling. I cut 3/4" plywood into 2" strips and made 4 sets of frames. Drilled holes in two of them, placed 3/8" tee-nuts in one of those and stacked it under a solid frame which gets attached to the ceiling. The second drilled frame gets 6" bolts and...
  4. Box of Roses

    These maple boxes came out of thr desk set zi built last week. I liked the idea of scroll sawing a pattern into the lid. There is a scrape of maple sized to fit inside the box as a backer to the rose patterns, Then I used a cherry dye to contrast the pattern, I suppost any pattern is eligable...
  5. Beer Glass??

    I'm not sure what this was supposed to be but it looked like a beer glass when I got done. It's turned from cherry branch & measures 6 1/2"H x 2 3/4" W at the top x 1/8" thick. Thanks for Looking. Lou
  6. Quarter Sawn White Oak Bunk Beds with Drawers

    I recently completed this bunk bed for my girls. It took me over a year from the time I started it to the time I finished (I have almost no free time). I designed this in sketch-up which was a challenge by itself. I wanted to be able to open and clean my tilt in windows so the width of the...
  7. 1 Board 1 Project "bench sander" tape dispenser

    I needed a packaging tape dispenser and was all set to make a plain utilitarian one when I ran across the 1 Board 1 Project Spring Challenge, so I got inspired to get a little more creative. I suppose ChuckV's chisel rack got me thinking about relating my dispenser to the shop, and started...
  8. My first project!

    Finally finished my first real woodworking project. I learned a lot making this and can't wait to make more stuff! I used only hand tools for this project, so it took a little longer than anticipated, but I'm pleased with the result. I weighted the dispenser by putting two scrap steel rods into...
  9. Sanding Storage

    Got tired of storing too much sandpaper in a drawer, having to dig for everything, and never being able to really see what I was about to run out of. I'd rather spend money making projects for outside the shop look nice, so the plan was to make this on the cheap. Had a quarter sheet of MDF I...
  10. Oak Entertainment Center

    I built this Oak Entertainment Center for a customer. It is made from solid Oak and Oak plywood. Each tower has multimedia storage, the left tower has storage for DVDs and VHS tapes, the right tower has storage for CDs and more VHS tapes. The spanner shelves are great for holding knick-knacks...
  11. Not only functional but a necessity.

    These are some surfboard racks that I made. I needed to organize the quiver a little bit, boards take up a lot of room when not stacked like so. When I was making them I decided to also make a rack to hold my booties, gloves, and wetsuit. They all work wonderfully, they really help with drying...
  12. Table saw tapering jig (why I needed a circle jig)

    Table saw tapering jig why I needed a circle jig… One morning my daughter said to me she needed a wedge to hold the door when she took out her bicycle, so I went to the work shop to make her one, only this time I decided to do it safe… So I made a jig for tapering cuts - no more freehand...
  13. Hand Tools
    So, Some shepherd infill hand planes (smoothing and shoulder) have come my way recently along with a collection of Lie-Nielsen and veritas planes. The Nielsen and veritas planes have found a happy home but I'm looking to part ways with the Shepherds to cover costs on the others. I know they...

  15. Jigs & Fixtures
    I'm trying to decide what tape to use for attaching templates to workpieces. I have a 1/2 wide Scotch brand. A roll of both permanent and a roll of removable. But there's got to be something better. What do you prefer?
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Is it just me that gets a bit frustrated with tape measures? If you want to make a small measurement with the ususal tape measure, say, 5/8s, you can't, because the dang hook at the beginning of the tape hides almost the whole first inch! The rivets that hold on the hook don't help either. I...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've got a question regarding glass in woodworking projects. I've been asked to make several more wine cork display cases for friends and coworkers, and each has a piece of 1/8" glass seated in a small dado in each side. The first couple I made, I just taped the glass with blue painters tape...

  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am planning to design a 4'H x3'W portable hutch for one of my worktables. I plan to attach it temporarily using clamps. The purpose is to house all the stuff that I use daily to be within easy reach. I am thinking of making a tape dispenser of some sort. My first idea is a one foot long dowel...
