Let’s see, I had a couple scraps of Black Walnut sitting around the shop. Also had what was left from a Black Cherry floor joist ( From an old barn tear down) Both were being abused by every new-to-me handplane that came into the shop. Decided to try and make SOMETHING out of them, before they wound up as just a pile of shavings. Edges were planed square and ready for glue-ups. Didn’t have a way to make slimmer pieces, so I just used the scraps as is. Got a slab out o...
Having a shortage of bench space, I decided that I needed to create a space for the bench grinder, and not wanting to damage any walls in the apartment, I decided a dedicated Grinder Stand was called for, but not away floor storage space. After hunting for a while, I found what I was looking for on Woodstore.net it hardly reduced the floor space at all. To make this you only need half a sheet of 3/4” plywood, I used pine, as it was cheaper, and some scraps of birch ply for the top...
Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...
With the weather krummy, I stayed indoors and worked on the table top. I laid out the dog holes and clamp slots. Then I drilled the holes with a 7/8 inch Forstner bit. For the clamping slots, I drilled each end with a 1 1/4 inch Forstner bit. Next I drew the lines in between the holes and cut out the slots with a jig saw leaving a little waste inside the line. All that is left is to set up my router with a straight edge and trim the slots to final size with a flush trim bit. Here are a few...
Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.
Today I am going to start building a mobile workstation/cart or whatever you want to call it. No doubt mine will be similar to carts others have built, but customized to fit my needs. So, here are my ideas. The Plan Table use: I plan to use the table for things like: a sanding area surface for mounting the PC dovetail jig mount for the pocket hole jig area for clamping glue ups. other uses where work piece needs to be held in position via clamps. Construction Detail...

The 7th in the series about building a Allan Little designed ultimate work table with multifunctional top. In this video I layout and drill the holes for the Festool clamping elements. http://youtu.be/s-EsJzpOF9U
It has been a struggle, but I finally managed to get the drawers built. I made drawer stock by gluing up discounted (50% off) lumber purchased at the lumber yard. They sell “shorts” – boards that are less than 48 inches in length in various widths. I made the drawers out of poplar with the exception of the pull out tray. It is maple. With the boards glued up, I then planed them to just over 5/8 inch. Then I switched to the drum sander and sanded them to 5/8 inch th...
