  1. Side table inspired by a picture.

    In October while we were in Myrtle Beach I got a text from my wife and sister - in - law who were out shopping. The text had a picture of a table they saw at a store and they were sure I could I make my sister - in - law one for Christmas. The picture they sent is the 3rd one attached to this...
  2. Table Saw Miter Sled

    After viewing several video's on making the miter sled I finally decided to make one myself. I ended up using a small combo square I had to set the the initial guide at 45 degrees to the kerf, as it fit into the kerf rather nicely. After the glue had dried I rechecked it with a speed square it...
  3. Quick and Dirty Clamp Rack

    I was sick of the way my clamps were being stored (basically they were all clamped down on a cleat on the wall) and finally decided do to something about it. I had a piece of 3/4" laminated particle board in the scrap pile, so I ripped it into two long pieces, cut 1/2" slots partway into one...
  4. First Box from the Lathe

    My grill is right outside the door the my shop, so I can get 4 to 12 minutes of un-interrupted shop time depending on what I'm cooking and how long it needs to hang out before being turned over. This box was done almost completely while cooking and its made up of some glued up scrap of Maple...
  5. Curved Corner Serving Tray

    I got the plans for this tray from my Woodsmith/TimeLife Books collection. The tray measures (roughly) 11 1/2" x 17 1/4". The tray is made from air dried pine (about 10 years) and the splines are made out of purple heart. This is a nice materials light project (you get all you need from just...
  6. Snowman Bandsaw Box

    My wife loves snowmen, so I put this together for her for Christmas last year. He is about 9" wide at the base and almost about 20 inches tall. I bought two small bottles of craft paint (black and orange) and finished him off. For something so simple, it's of her favorite things of the stuff...
  7. KREG 2 x 4 Workbench / Outfeed Table

    Using the Kreg plans their 2×4 workbench I modified them slightly to create this Workbench / Outfeed table. I had to shorten the bench to match it to my tablesaw, and actually shortened it quite a bit so I could install some leveling feet to tweek it perfectly for outfeed duties. I did end up...
  8. Wheel Chair Accessible Picnic Table

    My work has a back patio with a couple of picnic tables for employees to use. They are over 10 years old and are in really sad shape. I was going to replace the top of both tables, but as I was taking the first one apart it literally fell apart. New plan was to replace one of the tables with...
  9. Teenie Little Bud Vase

    Last time I was in Rockler, I took a look at some of the turning blanks they had and picked up a little piece of Lignum Vitae that was about 4" long and 2" square (for the princely sum of $1.99 US). I just wanted something a little different to try in the lathe and this wood turned like a dream...
  10. Indoor Planter via WWGOA

    Woodworkers Guild of America powered by Wood Magazine posted this project by George Vondriska. I've upscaled my planter to be 6' long and 2' wide (it holds 4 cubic feet of soil easily). I'm actually making 2 but after about 8 hours in the shop on Sunday I only finished one (the other is 60%...
  11. Speakers Podium for Work

    Here is the finished product. If you look carefully you will see a small slot on the side of the front frame where we can slide different placards in and out depending on who is using the podium. If I was going to do another one, I would make it 3" taller and 6" less deep, but overall it works...
  12. There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)

    I just recently celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary, and as part of the celebration my wife and I took a private wood turning class together (neither of us having ever turned anything before). I was able to set this up at McLaughlin Woods, where I had recently taken a joinery class. We had...
  13. Built In - Finished Top Installed

    The top is made of 3 110 1/2" long cherry boards that have been milled down to 15/16" thickness and glued up with biscuits and pocket screws. One coat of Watco Danish oil (that one coat taking 45 minutes to apply), and 2 coats of wipe on poly.
  14. Hey, the floor IS made of wood....

    Two weeks ago my wife and I emptied our 10×9 office, painted the walls, laid a new Bamboo floor, new baseboard. Last weekend I started staining a new built in piece of plywood … um I mean desk, and trim. Today I got the new desktop installed and the computer stuff all hooked back up again...
  15. Vanity for Christmas

    Our neighbor mentioned to my wife that her 9 year old daughter really needed a little vanity to start putting her girlie stuff, and seeing as its Christmas, and seeing as how I have this nifty wood shop, wouldn't it be nice if we could build something for her. I went out to the shop Saturday...
  16. Built in Bureau

    About 5 years ago we added a 2 story 600 sq ft addition to the end of the house. The new master bedroom ended up in the addition and I designed it to have a space for a built in bureau. Probably 2 years ago the framing for the bureau went in and basig crawer boxes installed. A month or so ago...
  17. Don't put my heart on a shelf ... or in a box.

    All has been pretty quite on the blogging front for the last few weeks. I've been working on a little project for my wife's birthday (I won't say which birthday) and she is one of the few people who read my blog so I had to keep mum about what I was really doing. So without further ado, my...
  18. Lazy Susan (no offense to you Susan's out there).

    After making my first 2 cutting boards my Sister-In-Law made a comment that she didn't have anything that I had made, but she didn't really want a cutting board…. I am very familiar with her house and decided to make a lazy susan for her eat-in kitchen table. I used some Zebra Wood and...
  19. Bowling for Charity

    I have just completed my latest turning. It is an Osage Orange bowl, by far the largest bowl I have yet turned. It measures 7 3/8″ in diameter and is 2 3/4″ tall (it is 2 3/8″ deep). My wife's work is having a Charity Auction this Friday and I am giving them this to put in the auction. I'm...
  20. Marketplace Classifieds
    Hi all, I'm looking for a copy of shopnotes # 55. I know, I know, it's from 2001. There wew plans for a mobile sheet goods and lumber rack in it. I found this link in my search and this rack would be ideal. However the PDF included online is only for a cut plan. If anyone knows where I could...
