    This project was built with a round top from a broken table and two 2×4's. The top in this project is 30 inches in diameter. However, the designed can be scaled up or down based on your top diameter and/or desired table height. See video and build instructions below. Video of build: Build...
  2. LxWxH - Vintage Puzzle Upgrade

    Hey Guys, I found another in the files, maybe this one you can make out more detail. This box was a souvenir box from somewhere tropical that has a sliding front panel that unlocks the lid when retracted. I saw an opportunity to build on what was existing. Basically, there is a draw bolt...
  3. Pliers, Snips, & Vise-Grip Storage Solution for French Cleat

    I'm pretty happy with this one, guys. I had some old unused shelving from my shop renovation. I cut it half, turned it on its side and violin! A made-to-order pliers, snips, and vise-grips storage solution. The build: I cut a backer board which spans two of the french cleats. I then simply...
  4. Mobile Drill Press Stand From Old Filing Cabinet

    During my shop renovation, I decided I wanted to get every machine possible on a mobile cart or stand. This is my solution for my Drill Press. I "up-cycled" an old filing cabinet by popping the drill press on top and bolting it down. My neighbor graciously gave me this drill press, gratis...
  5. Upcycled Bowling Alley Table for World Champion Boxer

    I was honored to build a table to support Mike Evgen (world famous "Rice Street Rocker" and former Welterweight champion of the world) and his vision to provide a positive environment for local youth of the Rice Street area of St. Paul where I grew up. Mike is converting an old bowling alley...

  7. Upcycled Mondrian dining table

    I finally finished my table. It has been a blast in more ways than one. Working with colour has been an absolute blast that i hope will continue to inspire me in my future projects. Thank you Mr Mondrian :)
  8. Funeral urn

    My brother-in-law died last year and I made the urn on the left for him of Hickory and Ebony. Last week my mother-in-law died and I made the one on the right from curly Maple and Padauk. They are glue ups of 1" stock that I then shaped on the bandsaw and 6" belt sander. Finished with Minwax...

  9. Scrap Wood Patio Table

    The idea began based on a patio bench that I previously made. We wanted something to match that. I also wanted to get rid of some of the hoard of cut-offs and scraps that I can never seem to throw out. The base and top frame are all pressure treated wood leftovers from old or abandoned projects...
  10. Prestige Design: Pallet Bed Design (built with only pallet wood)

    Prestige Designs: I had a new client as me if i design beds… he wanted it queen size, contemporary/modern, and sets the tone when someone steps in the room. I told him "no problem give me a week." So Here it is… and 8'6" x 7' Pallet Bed Frame. Sanded, Oiled, and glossed… Once i build it i do...
  11. Pallet Cabinet.

    This was built about one year ago with the intent of using up some old pallets I had in the shed. After a few hours I had the first piece I had ever built completed. This sparked a maddening excitement for me and since then I dove headfirst into a small wood working frenzy. I wanted to post...
  12. Drill Press Stand from Old Desk Upcycle

    After making my Assembly/Outfeed table using the desktop from a cheap old desk (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/108805), I decided to re-purpose most of the remaining pieces of the desk for a drill press stand. My Shop Fox bench top drill had been sitting on my defunct table saw which made the...
  13. 1917 Piano turned bar

    Hello LJ's! This was quite a fun project for me to tackle over the past few months! I got a free piano from Craigslist and decided - after much deliberation - to turn it into a bar! The piano was manufactured in Boston in or around 1917 by Poole Piano, a well-known American piano maker. The...
  14. Alberta Springs Puzzle Box Retrofit

    The Alberta Springs Puzzle Box is a 5 moves to open puzzle box that has been retrofit into a vintage wood Alberta Springs Whiskey gift box. The design is not my original one this time, but a design that is from a vintage Chinese Document Box found in the rural markets of China. The design was...
  15. Bench Reborn

    An old bench had been left to die a slow death, but I rescued it. My son and I removed all the old wood, he polished the brass bolts, we cut oak slats from a recycled pallet to match the size and sanded everything down, drilled the holes and rebuilt the bench. My twins had to try it out as soon...
  16. Raised Garden Beds

    Raised garden beds made from upcycled wooden pallets. My son and I made these three beds in an afternoon. Each is lined with cardboard to help smother the grass and weeds from growing up inside. Lining up someone to deliver topsoil is proving to be most difficult part of this project so far...
  17. The Red Door - Kel Snake

    Its been awhile sine I have posted anything, ...this was a fun weekend project you guys might enjoy. I had this old red door from a cabinet I bought at a yard sale many, many years ago and has been moved around too many times to mention. I finally decided to take a weekend and build a cabinet...
  18. Christmas Tree Log Boxes

    Made these simple boxes for the nieces from their 2011 Christmas tree. I left the tree trunk in the attic of our garage to dry for a couple of years, worked pretty well. They got a kick out of it, since the oldest is a bit of a nature lover.
  19. Christmas Gifts 2013

    The company I work for moved offices this last October. Some of the furniture was destined for the landfill. I convinced the office manager to let me purchase the solid cherry built in cabinetry and desks for a small fee. In return I made her one of these stools for her young son. I made 5...
  20. Oyster knives from scrap

    Here are a few of the oyster shuckers I've been working on. The blades are made from old saw blades and the handles are wood scraps from a woodworking shop. It is so much fun to take things from the "burn pile" and make something usable. I know the shape is not conventional, but I like it :)...
