  1. Play kitchen

    I made this play kitchen out of an old filing cabinet on wheels (mdf), a plywood board, a plastic panel, tiles, a faucet and a dog food bowl.
  2. Frames from Hardwood Flooring Cutoffs

    I'm always looking for creative ways to use scraps and leftovers around the shop. When I bought my current home, a 1915 Craftsman Bungalow, I found a large stockpile of old growth figured maple hardwood flooring cutoffs. I can't believe they have stayed with this house for nearly 100 years! I...
  3. Reclaimed oak picture frame

    I made this to hold a painting of my Grandfather. The wood was reclaimed from a local house that was torn down last year. I was told the home was built in the 40's and all the framing was red oak or poplar except for a newer addition. I used a planer sled to get one side flat and a table saw...

    I am getting ready to buy a used bandsaw. I am fairly new to the world of woodworking but have been lurking around this site for awhile. I did some searching but haven't seen much in the realm of pointers from the experts on what to check out when buying used tools. The posting online shows a...
  5. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I recently got some leftover (about 4 square meters) laminate oak flooring and I'm currently devising what projects I can do with them (I won't be using them for flooring). Does anyone know if it is feasible to glue the undersides of the flooring (the laminated sides) together so that the oak...

    Stock Prep I ended up with a lot of footage, so I am going to split the video up as needed to the time manageable. In this video, I start my new project which is a tilt-out wastebasket cabinet. As usual, I start out with rough lumber, so much of this first video is about preparing the stock...

    Pallets....How to find them It seems like if you can upcycle, recycle, tricycle, or whatevercycle something nowadays it is a big hit. Everyone is getting creative with pallets from making wine racks, porch swings, garden benches, or an entire building. But what if you don't know where to get...

    Kid Friendly Project- A Garden Tote This project is a great way to get the kids involved. They can do most of the machining, definitely the sanding, and then they can get creative with the painting. This is made with 2 used fence pickets/panels that are 5' long. They sell new ones for $1.50 at...

    Hello all. My wood working activities at the moment are model ship building and pen turning. Can some of you post suggestions for a table saw appropriate for cutting pen blanks? Room and price have to be considered. I have my eyes set on a DeWalt DW745 but it probably will be overkill. I've...

    I have designed a router template in a graphics package. It is a mult-cut template in that it must be used multiple times to create the final product and thus uses an indexing pin in relation to one of the cuts. My concern is that this makes the accuracy of the original template of tantamount...
  15. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I don't want to post this in the gallery because its not a "woodworking project".... But… It kinda is. So I thought I'd just post it here instead. On one of my trips to get some free wood I was asked if I wanted some drawers. They were from a desk. The desk was trashed and he had salvaged as...
  16. Hand Tools
    Found some fire wood out back and really interested in figuring out how to craft from the raw state. I've learned that it is beneficial to split logs so that they break in there natural weak spots. This wood was cut (chain saw) for firewood and really not dried properly as they were just...

    I am trying to create a lake efffect for a Juniper coffee table as the piece I am using has several large voids. I want the colors to be darker on the bottom and become lighter as I fill the void to try and create the effect of looking into a deep blue lake. I have depth of about 2" to work...

During my research I found this site and have read a lot of the threads. I have...
