  1. New legs... new lift... Ambrosia Maple?

    Ambrosia Maple, walnut splines, and a top that might be oak… not absolutely sure. I have been spending a lot of time in the workshop. I am the kind of guy that is easily bored, so I try new things quite a bit. I wanted a different kind of lift for my box and found an oriental (?) design...
  2. Pecan night stand

    First attempt at making a live edge, bark on small table from a tree on my property. Made 2 for my daughter.
  3. Wooden dumbbell

    A deeply silly woodworking project here. I'm not much for gyms, but wanted to try some weight training, while watching TV or whatnot. But good dumbbells are hard to find/expensive. So I made one out of wood, using scraps from around my garage shop. It's about 9.5 pounds, and the heads are...
  4. New Foreman On The Job

    I haven't posted in a while and this may very well be "overkill" but I wanted a semi-permanent spot for my Kreg Foreman pocket hole machine. There are also times when I wanted more bench surface. This seemed to fit both purposes. The center of the bench will accommodate the Foreman and it can be...

    I'm building 5 cabinets for behind a bar in a restaurant. The largest will be around 33" wide total, and 17" deep, for a counter that is 18" deep in total. There will be quartz on top with a 1/2" subtop questions: 1) is the 1/2 subtop for the quarts enough? 2) if I use baltic birch plywood...

    Im not sure if this is the correct forum, but this is the just of it. I got a condo that had no cabinet doors… I dont have the money to buy custom doors (well over 1000$), so i was thinking of just getting plywood cut to size for each door add edge banding and paint them white. I have a couple...

    Just bought 1989 Delta Unisaw 34-806 type 2 with Biesemeyer, new Leeson 3HP single phase motor, magnetic starter assy, two wings, no extension on right- looks pretty original. Has sawed off 52" rails (probably 40")- or I may get it with 24" rails. Found PDF's online of owner's manual and parts...

    Please forgive the discursive ramble. I tend to think better "out loud". So, I have a monster of a dining room table that has been in the family for generations. It's a solid wood table with a beautiful persimmon wood veneer. When it's polished up and not covered in all the random crap that...

    HUGE Eucalyptus score Sheesh. Good thing I have a truck now. I saw a note on craigslist today (online classifieds) that a guy had put "10 to 15 more" eucalyptus logs out in the alleyway behind his house. LA is all blocks split in half by access alleys big enough to drive 2 cars through...

    Gearing up As some here know, I enjoy entering my woodworking projects in the local Fair Competitions. This year is no exception. Last year I entered a Wooden geared clock at the Orange County Fair in Southern California. This year I will be entering the same clock in the Puyallup Fair in...

    80% Complete I was fortunate enough to be able to take off Christmas week and get a good start on my workbench. I've had the idea to build one in my head for a few months now, and have been slowly accumulating the parts and hardware necessary. My intention was to make it possible to take the...

    Design v1: Walled Sides - Feedback welcome (weight bearing, cross bracing, design) I'm awaiting a benchtop milling machine which weighs about 500lbs, and with the expense of the machine + additional tooling that would probably follow (vises, cutters, tool holders, etc) I wanted to be able to...

    Hello everyone. I am planning to build a pergola like I said on the title but I have no idea how to attach the posts on the deck, that will support the pergola itself. Will the post brackets work? or would I have to make holes on the deck and concrete it in? I plan to build this on the corner of...

    I have an 8' x 40 inch dining table. It is a bookmatched 2 inch thick walnut. It has a terrible cupping problem. Since this picture was taken, I have since got the cupping out. I wet it down and put buckets of sand on top. I also, put a pot of water on a hot plate burner under it. Then I covered...

    I may have an affordable way to get 220V power to my garage. Will see in a week or so when I get the estimate from the electrician. If so, I was considering changing my plans for a floor standing jointer to get an 8" instead of a 6". However I saw that they 8" models from grizzly weigh over...

    Hello All, Anyone know of a good source of information on the strength to weight ratio of woods. I'm really interested in making more paddles and would like a number of woods to choose from while still keeping them as light as possible.
