This is a great gift for that special quilter that you know.Admit it… someone, somewhere has given you or someone that you know a quilt.They put a lot of hard work and pride into it, now it is your turn to make that someone special a quilt square to hang on their wall.It really isn’t that hard and all it takes if a single 2×4.You can even make it easier by using a plywood backing.So go on… you know that you want to… get in your workshop and start cutting some wood...
Since 2×4’s are one of the most common and cheapest woods out there, I want to build a few projects using nothing but them.This is my first one in the new year.I have been using cardboard boxes for years and now I can replace them with simple wooden storage bins. You can click here to watch the video on my YouTube channel. Please let me know what you think about it. Thank youPaul Pomerleau
My sister-in-law sent a picture of a bench and asked if I could make one to go in her entryway. The legs on it would’ve required compound angles, which I didn’t really want to deal with so I looked for other similar benches online and found one by Pottery Barn in which the legs were only angled in one direction, not two. So I set about to make it using the pictures from the Pottery Barn website as reference. I used only 2×4’s since I can’t afford to pay for a...
A simple 2×4 and plywood work table. Easy to build. http://youtu.be/aujUjjXDPKA
I bought my old Craftsman bandsaw off of Craigslist a sometime ago and it came with a metal stand with some nice retractable wheels. You see it here in an old shop picture. It has done a great job but I was constantly tightening the screws holding it on the stand and when I moved it into place next to my new lathe I soon was tripping over the splayed legs or killing my ankle on the wheel locks. So I finally took some time to get a new stand built for it. the best part is that I...
I built this table for Summers Woodworking contest. I used an old ratty 2×4 stud from a demolition project. I milled enough pieces from the one 2×4 for 2 of these tables, but have only had time to complete the first so far. I have been thinking about my design tendencies lately and wanted to break out of the mold a bit with this one. I usually build tables with a structural apron that secures the top, but I decided to try to make the top structural in this case instead. I lik...
My entry for the Summer’s Woodworking 2×4 Contest. Carl Jacobson joked about making a rocket ship from a 2×4 so I took up the challenge. Hope you enjoy the video, bonus footage at the end of my daughter and I “flying” the rocket.
Putting the finish on my Nautilus Shell project today. Jullie helped to design the base for the shell to sit on. Should be able to post pictures of my first Lumberjocks project later this week.
I was able to almost entirely complete the printer stand today. I say almost as I have to cut two shelves for it that will be adjustable. I am saving that for later in the week as I have a large sheet of plywood I will have to cut for a table top and I will cut the shelves at the same time. This unit is made from 2×4s, and 1/2” plywood. The adjustable shelves I wan to be a little sturdier since they will be holding paper and such so they will be 3/4” plywood. All of th...
Believe it or not I am finally making headway on the last pieces of furniture for my office. I worked today on the Printer Stand. It is ready for staining tomorrow and while it is drying I am planning to cut the parts down for either the table or the small storage cabinet. The printer stand and table have always been in my plan the small cabinet is a newer item. After I inherited my Grandfather’s toolbox I realized there are a number of tools that I either have no idea what they ...
