https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4BlNiZCJQY I needed a way to access higher shelves in my workshop, so I made myself a step stool out of some pallet wood! I hope you enjoy!
First of all I want to thank many of you for the friendly welcom you have given me. And then I will be brief because actually it is a very small and simple project, but perhaps it can be useful for someone. You can watch the building process on this video: https://youtu.be/5gfi6SDOa3c I still need a large stationary belt sander but is a future project for me. For now, this is a very simple solution to do and that has helped me a lot at time to work. The main thing this stand is that it ...
From what I have spent this entire week working on was acquiring and perfecting my measurements. I plan on making the length up to 48 inches, the height up to 32 inches, and the width to 16 inches. I also had to measure my consoles and TV box but the way the plywood is cut they all fall into perfect increments. I haven’t actually gotten to start cutting or physically get a feel for what I’m gonna do because I have to gather the money so I can get the wood, which I plan on doing n...
Something that caught my eye while working with this piece of wood. Reminds me of a Halloween face
This entry is going to explain my plans and design. I am obviously working on making a TV stand that’s arts and crats type style. It is going to be in my room but it has to be a good size so it’s not too big or too small for my 42 inch TV. I also plan on it being able to hold my cable box, Xbox 360, games, movies, etc. I have to get more exact measurements but have a good feel of what I plan on using, stay tuned.
I forgot to take pictures of the plans they drew up for their boxes, so I’ll post those in awhile. Here the boys are… Hard at work.
I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...
We’ll its finally finished. I’ve been busy since my last entry, but I kept pecking away at it. I had some issue with the finishing. I had the top all done, and decided to add one more coat. I had wet sanded it down with 400, and wiped on the final coat. The coat did not cover like when I was brushing it on, so I let it dry for 6 hour and brushed on what I thought would be the final coat. When I came back, the finish had bubbled in several spots. So, back to sanding. I...
My son asked me to make him a chess set. I used his request as a long awaited excuse to buy a lathe and learn to turn wood. This chess set was my first experiment. There are 7 videos so far in the series.

My wife and I loved the nightstands from Pintodeluxe we found on his blog, and I decided to try and replicate them. I decided to use oak, though it is not quartersawn, and Kreg joinery where possible. I have not nearly reached the skill level that Pinto has, but thought I would give it a shot anyway. Looking at his blog, we realized that the set he made would be a little large for our taste, so I sized them down a bit. Thanks for sharing your project Pinto! The Kreg joinery makes it a ...
