Kitchen Island Cart #11: Towel Rack

09-27-2017 05:52 AM by EdsCustomWoodCrafts | 0 comments »

To be honest I planned on just buying a towel rack but couldn’t find one that really fit what I was looking for so here I go again ” a project within a project” I used some of the 2×2 I had leftover from the legs.. then I used my palm router to to chamfer both ends of the 6” piece Next I drill a 1” hole so I could slide my 18” dowel through .. and then I needed to drill another hole in the actual 1” dowel so as that I could add a 3/8”...

maintenance time

10-03-2017 01:34 AM by emart | 2 comments »

Welp I finally bit the bullet and took on my sagging foundation. The building I am using was a kit from Lowes which 18 year old me built to exactly what the instructions said. the major flaw in the design is it didnt come with sill plates (I made sure the new half has them.) This caused water to seep in where the siding meets the floor and rotted everything out but the studs and siding. Eventually I got tired of machinery falling through the floor. After several good Seattle storms I thi...

Hints and Tips #5: A 'Quick' Way to Store Nails, Screws, Etc.

02-05-2015 04:26 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

I’m always trying to figure out how to use the many things we throw out in our day to day lives. In no way can I be considered a fanatic about this, but I try to consider any containers we put out for recycling. I use our Nestle Quick canisters to store the standard screws and finish nails in my shop. They are a good size, they are sturdy plastic and they are oblong, which allows the smaller of the two available sizes to be carried in a normal cloth nail apron! Originally the ...

Floor Drill Press Cabinet #2: Drawers Fitted and Made for Drill Press Cabinet

10-19-2017 03:59 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I followed the Woodsmith plan to use metal drawer slides. I bought Liberty slides from in order to get the cheapest pricing. I guess their quality is fine. I just do not have enough experience placing metal slides to make a good judgement. They work. I ordered 18 inch slides. The depth I had to work in the cabinet was 18 3/4 inches. The plan set the false drawer fronts to be inset and flush to the cabinet’s frame. I decided late in the game to set my false drawer front...

Cookbook Stand #3: Cookbook Lip

02-08-2015 01:56 AM by EdsCustomWoodCrafts | 2 comments »

The next part of my stand was something to actually hold the Ipad or cookbook….. I used a 2.5” wide x 9.25”long x .5” (thick) piece for the bottom part and in essence formed a “L” shape by completing the front by placing a 1.5” high piece in front. See below im making it sound complicated but its not.. I sued 1” panel pins and glue to keep the right angle… .. That’s it for the lip very easy!!!!!!

The Quest for a Better Bench #2: The best bench so far...

10-26-2017 12:22 AM by PlanBWoodworks | 4 comments »

After building the last iteration of Workbench 2.0 (technically, I guess I should call it Workbench 2.1), it did not take long for me to decide that I was still less than thrilled with the final outcome. In addition, I had delved further intro the land of woodworking, and had also acquired a jointer and planer. YouTube was filled with videos of people making workbenches with laminated tops. Thick and heavy, it seemed clear to me that this was the type of bench that I wanted to build. Ja...

Finishing up the workbench cabs

02-09-2015 09:56 PM by John Lowell | 1 comment »

Finally got a few coats of poly on, and mounted the cab in the workbench. Now need some more stuff to fill the drawers. Put some hardboard on to keep dust out of the drawers. Mixed material when you use what is already on hand.

A little time off #2: Back to work, a box from Poplar scraps

11-03-2017 05:24 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, had a few scraps of Poplar, just sitting around, getting in the way Trimmed a few down, to see IF I could make a box out of them… Laid out some tools, to make a few dovetails.. Just the Usual Suspects….Laid out some pins, since I do pins first.. Went to set up the Shop Stool, so I could sit while I work… This is where it normally sits at, when I am running a saw.. This time, the welds on the stool decided to gave way…..had to saw the first set sta...
