Big cabinet for the new home #4: Big stuff is done, DIY bun feet.

06-22-2018 10:38 AM by Lalen | 0 comments »

All that remains is doors and drawer fronts! Here is the current status. Sorry its a bit dark, but its a black cabinet and I still need to get some lights added to the new house. I included my 8’ ladder for scale. Total storage capacity is about 96 cubic feet. The 3 cabinets were each 8’ high by 34” wide, 19.5” deep outside dimensions. I made the base 5.5” high and inset 3/4” to clear the baseboard then the crown molding added another coup...

Mission-style mahogany desk #3: Front apron mortises done, and an assembly of the frame

06-20-2018 02:41 AM by Woodbutchery | 5 comments »

The front apron mortises are complete, and then a fit of the whole frame. I have a few tenons to adjust, some research and eventual installation of drawer frames, and a lot of practice on dovetail joinery before I make the drawers. Really happy with the way this is coming together. Happy to hear comments, as always. Thanks for looking.

Drill Powered Table Crank for a Drill Press/Pillar Drill

06-08-2018 11:16 PM by Dan Thomas | 2 comments »

I wanted to build a new drill press table, but the crank on my drill press that raises and lowers the table gets in the way, and I end up having to cut out part of the table. Like this: So I made a crank extension with a right-angle adapter that allows me to use my drill to raise and lower the table: If you want to learn more, check out my YouTube video. Feel free to ask questions, or post comments! Or go directly to the video: https://youtu.be/9kY3fk6Q-kA

Split Top Roubo Bench From Southern Yellow Pine, Part 1

06-08-2018 06:36 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I built this Split top roubo style woodworking bench out of affordable lumber from the home center. The benchcrafted tail vise and leg vise were not so affordable but definitely worth the investment. This work bench is solid, heavy and great for hand tool woodworking. I used the benchcrafted plans as a guide but had to change some dimensions since i used dimensional southern yellow pine from the home center. I also used Popular woodworking magazine’s issue #191 for a guide to cut the do...

Dutchy Excavator Build #3: Tracks complete.. moving on..

06-03-2018 09:25 AM by darkmyble | 8 comments »

Hi folks… well I eventually got the tracks finished. I’ve not been doing so well with my health so had to take a few days ‘rest’ urghhhh.. The one thing I like about this plan is it’s easy to follow and concise. More so than any others. Despite being a relative newcomer to the world of model building I’ve amassed hundreds of plans. I have to say these plans are far superior in every way. Right so finishing up the tracks was a fairly straightforward pr...

2 Car Garage Wood Shop Tour

05-21-2018 10:26 PM by wrenchhead | 7 comments »

I recently looked at the pics of my shop from a few years ago and thought it would be fun to document the layout of my shop now. Here is a tour and layout of my 2 car garage woodshop. I go over my woodworking equipment, what i like, don’t like and what I want to upgrade to in the future. It’s a little long so there are time marks when I talk about each tool in the description. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdgtdxMRqok

Gift Projects #2: Making Cutting Boards Out Of a Single Peice of Solid Wood

05-17-2018 06:05 PM by ScottBelleri | 0 comments »

I made these paddle-style cutting boards out of solid 6/4” maple. This is thick enough that they shouldn’t warp, and they can be sanded down a number of times. It is called a paddle-style cutting board because its handle makes it look a bit like a paddle. The handle makes it easy to carry and hang, and also gives it a unique character. Sugar maple is an ideal wood for cutting boards because it is hard, but not so hard that it will dull your knives. Really, the only import...

Coffee table #1: Some pics of my daughters coffee table

05-13-2018 12:47 AM by icemanhank | 10 comments »

Hi all, I was asked by daughter #2 to build a coffee table of her and her partners design. I had some Tasmanian Blackwood floating around in the shed which I thought would be nice for the frame and had some beautiful 1/4 sawn tasmanian Oak at the wood club that was free (old church pews) which I thought I could use for the top. Although the original intension was a live edge piece. This can be changed easily at a later time if she still wants the slab top. The Oak for the top, while ...
