  1. Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench

    Hello my friends !, after finishing this work, I present here my project of a Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench. It was built using only hand tools at all steps. The entire project was documented with specific details, in three entries here in my blog with explanations and pictures, and in turn these...
  2. Imitation Cedar 2x4 Challenge Shoe Bench

    My last time trying to do real woodworking with construction lumber in a long while. Entry for the current Reddit woodworking 2×4 challenge. Huge exercise in frustration trying to make the wood do stuff it just didn't want to, but the end result is sturdy enough for 250 pounds on top and for...
  3. Mag-Bars

    I made these a few months ago as gifts. Now that they've all been given, I can post about them. I got the idea after seeing Benchcrafted "Mag-Bloks" and decided to try to make some myself. I picked up some random offcuts from a local wood place for a good price-cherry, walnut, red-oak, QS...
  4. Reclaimed AHP Side Table

    Some time ago, I posted about a home near ours which was being taken down for reconstruction. The owner allowed us to take the old wood and I filled the bed of my pickup three times and had timbers sticking out the back nearly 7 feet beyond the tailgate. Good thing I was only driving about 6...
  5. Stickley Tom Jones Drink Stand

    Here is my version of a Stickley drink stand. It is constructed out of African Mahogany and finished with spar varnish in a wiping recipe. Now that it's completed I see that it really needs to be sitting beside a Morris chair. Hmmmmm
  6. My Bench

    Introducing my new workbench that I just finished. I Love It! This is my version of the Weekend Workbench from The WoodSmith Shop. I followed the design pretty closely - I only made my top a bit smaller and added the drawer case instead of a shelf. Here's the specs: Top: 77"x32"x3" 4 layers...
  7. A Simple Broom Rack

    This project is pretty simple and utilitarian - just a few pegs to hold brooms and mops in the laundry room. But since I wanted to make it (almost) entirely from materials I had on had, I got to experiment with a few new techniques. I decided to make it from walnut. The only scrap I had was a...
  8. Dinning table

    This is the first project I've done in six years. We need a new table so I thought I'd give it a try. Man I'm hooked all over again. I've always liked Woodworking but after jumping in and building this table, I fell in love. I think it turned out pretty good. There's a few things I'd do...
  9. Universal Knife Blocks

    I saw some knife blocks like this on the internet so thought Id try my hand at making some, they are actually really simple to to. The hard part was finding all of the skewers to go inside at a reasonable price! There are over 2000 in each block so buying them 100 at a time would have left a...
  10. Jewlery Box

    Mahogany and oak. Style courtesy of andy "art box" from oregon. I have a lot of problems making boxes. Not sure why….perhaps the lack of patience on smaller detail projects. Either way, I struggled on this one. I tried hinges but failed. The screws kept breaking despite pre-drilling. In...
  11. Nigh Stand

    This is a night stand I built as a gift for my niece. It was completed in June 2015. The whole table is built out of solid wood (poplar and pine), including the drawer bottom. The finish is a thinned down coat of black milk paint and 3 coats of wiping varnish. I don't have the dimensions...
  12. MICROWAVE CART

    We've lived in this old house for 8 year, and still have our microwave sitting atop a small dresser in the kitchen, not exactly a Southern Living image. NOT ANY MORE! My wife and commander wanted it moved and I came up with an idea based on a teacart. With constant and continuous direction, I...

  14. Finishing
    Hi - First time post from someone fairly new to woodworking. I'm building a desk and I'm in the process of finishing the top. The top is solid wood - cherry, walnut and soft maple. I sanded down to 220 and began applying a homemade oil varnish with the standard 1/3 (satin) poly, 1/3 100% tung...
  15. Finishing
    So I have an ash hardwood floor we installed ourselves that has had 3 coats applied so far of an oil/varnish blend (We mixed 1 part Tung Oil, 1 part Citrus solvent (instead of mineral spirits) and 1 part McCloskeys Spar urethane). This went down with each coat being rubbed out and allowed 3+...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    need to know: 1. Dose Leecraft make in ZCI for this saw? 2. Can some one tell me who makes a after market guard for this saw? 3. What sort of aftermarket splitters are available for this saw? Thanks. also need an 8" dado set that will be used every day. and the set need to make the cleanest...
  17. Wood & Lumber
    Hello my friend got vegetable oil on a bare wood flooring does anybody know how to get it off Eco safely?
  18. Finishing
    This is actually a two-part question. I'm making a chess board with drawer, and noticed dark smudges on several of the walnut pieces which have been sanded to 180 (see photo). I'm guessing that these are fingerprints, although I'm surprised my fingers are that oily! If I use an oil-based finish...
  19. Blogs
    The Wood I mentioned recently that I felt like actually making something before working on my bench. What better project for my beginner skills than a simple dovetail box? I haven't waded through the loads of plans online for boxes, so this plan of mine might not work. Let me know what you...

    Step 1 - the top Decided to totally re-vamp the garage into a full on woodworking shop. Have misc. crap cluttering the place up, including a bunch of "almost" worthless wood. So, in the interest of clearing some space & finally starting to build my first real workbench, I decided to start...
