  1. Wooden TV Remote

    This is one of my favorite projects yet! I flip a boring plastic TV remote into a two-toned wooden beef stick. And what did I use for a battery cover? Another remote of course! It's two remotes in one held together with magnets! Watch the video of me making it here!
  2. Contractor TableSaw conversion to Cabinet Saw

    When I first got started I purchased what I thought would be more tablesaw than I would need, given I thought I'd only be building some simple carpentry work. For several years that seemed enough. Then the projects got bigger and I decided to get a sliding table attachment from Excalibur...
  3. butcher block

    I love all those cutting boards everyone has posted so I had to try. It is all maple, end grain up, did run through planer with only light cuts with only a little tearout at end. I have questions. In all my research, the only wood approved for cutting boards- butcher blocks approved by FDA, is...
  4. Stabilized birch painted shot glass (bowl 43)

    Another shot glass made from black-dyed stabilized birch. Textured, then carved and painted with red enamel, and finished with Tried and True Varnish Oil. Not my favorite, but I learned something from making it, so I'll call it a success. 2½ inches (65mm) high and 1⅞ inches (48mm) in diameter...
  5. 3 days: 1 project; 2 days: 2 projects

    So, last week we had a "SNOWMEGEDON!!!!" (roughly translated to about 8 inches of snow…). But, since I work for the Fed Governemt, I got a week off (way to dangerouse to drive to work!). This afforded me the opportunity to get some shop time in…Whoo-Hoo! The first project was really an...
  6. Making a $50 or less Band Saw Fence

    I don't know about you but having a fence on my band saw is one of those must have accessories. I recently got a Porter Cable 14 inch band saw and to be honest I love the saw but was very frustrated that it did not come with a fence from the factory. Yes there are options like the Kreg fence...
  7. Table Saw Dust Collection Improvement

    So I have a Craftsman zipcode saw. My main complaint is it has very poor dust collection. The cabinet is full of nooks and crannies and openings that trap sawdust or allow it to leak out. A few years ago I built a large work bench that integrated the table saw. I ditched the saws legs and...
  8. Table Saw Auxiliary (Multi Function) Fence

    Upgrading the workshop never ends! This weekend I remade my Aux fence for my tablesaw, to make cuts safer and easier. It's a simple project that delivers great results. My actual table saw fence has issues…but one is a real problem in particular. It isn't square to the table! To deal with...
  9. Miter Station Storage Upgrades

    I built a simple 2×4 modular miter saw station last year with an extension wing and an integrated T-track for a sliding stop block. I left the underside of the station open at the time, until I could figure out what type of storage I wanted underneath. In my latest video, I added a few storage...
  10. Breakfast Nook and dispaly cabinet.

    This project started as an natural stain grade oak kitchen with a drywall stub wall . I was asked to replace the stub wall with a design of mine for a curio cabinet with lighting and top ,and a L-shaped breakfast nook on the other side , Then i changed hardware and hinges out to new softclose...
  11. Ridgid Table Saw Motor Upgrade-unbelievable!

    I really like my Ridgid tabel saw. I have the accuracy to within .002" but it is severely underpowered :-( I have the knowledge and resources to help the underpower problem :-) These saws come with a 1.5hp motor. I got a 3hp, 230vac motor and the power improvement is 5 times what it used to be...
  12. Yard Basket holder

    Center post and arms are in a rope twist pattern, top is capped with a copper cap, arms have a brass hook for hanging whatever the owner desires to hang from it. This post is made from a 4"x4"x8' pressure treated post. I left 18" at the bottom square, since it will be planted in the ground...
  13. Disc sander 'upgrade'...

    Disc sander 'upgrade'... 'Or simply a new fence for my disc sander' I was tired of the little plastic fence that came with the sander, most of all because it was not all straight, and not all vertical, and not high enough… So plenty of reasons. Simply build the new of plywood, and made it...
  14. Japanese Lamp

    I made this lamp for my wife. The plans were on the Internet, Materials used: pine, rice paper, lamp kit.
  15. Table Saw Upgrade

    I've blogged about the restoration of a 40-year-old Craftsman table saw. After restoration and tune-up, it has been an excellent addition to my shop. Buuut… The switch always bothered me. Craftsman put a tiny rocker-switch on the bottom of the table. Reaching under the table and feeling for the...
  16. book cases

    These are my first try at building book cases for my mom, they are made of pine and are 6ft tall,14in deep and 3 feet wide. was thinking of selling them for around $150, depending on size and type of wood customer wanted to use, i would like to make ones with ajustble shelves but have not...
  17. Sanding Belts Life Stretcher

    To maximize my benchtop oscillating sander belts, I added sub-tables so I'd be able to use the full width of the belts, which most are not reversible. The upgrade requires only a base, two slick sub-tables (think Melamine), one runner, a bolt, a nut, four short dowels and a cardboard template...
  18. Tv Shelf and Fish tank Stand

    I built this fish tank stand and TV shelf to be used in my master bedroom. I built both using some reclaimed Oak wood and Oak plywood and stained it all with red mahogany and top coated with oil based poly. I weigh 250 and the shelf can support me so no worries of the TV ending up in the tank...
  19. Simple Saw Upgrade - Take 2

    Many of you might remember me posting "Simple Saw Upgrade" about a year ago. Here's a shot of that version of a hand's free safety stop: As you can see, the stop is long, but not wide. While the stop was positioned well for most applications, there have been many cuts and jigs that require...
  20. USCG Sheild shadow box

    Made this USCG shadow box out of red oak and walnut, one of my favorite's I had done in a while.
