In this video I make a simple, easy to build crosscut sled.
In the last video, I began making screen doors for a set of exterior french doors. Today I started to make the grils. The owner wanted vertical slats that rose at least 24” as he has a medium sized dog that wil punch the sceen out without them. I’ve decided that a dog needs to go in and out so I’ll put the grills on both sides of the doors.Cutting the slats, About a dozen per grill was a long tedious task with sanding and all. Below is a short slideshow video with narrated e...
Shelving, drawer fronts, utility cabinet tops. These are typical items that get built with plywood or other sheet goods such as melamine. The convenience of using sheet goods is great, but one downside is that quite often one or more of the edges must be covered. In this post I explain the process that I follow to apply hardwood edging to sheet goods. In this case I am covering the edges of melamine drawer fronts with poplar. This video shows me going through the process described here...

I just finished making some drawers for two vanities that I am building and I figured I would make a video of the easy method I use to make them. I noticed that there wasn’t a video on Youtube of how to make “easy” drawers with simple joinery so I thought I’d throw mine on there. I don’t use the best joinery I know, but it’s simple and can be done by pretty much anyone with limited tools. I have several drawers in my shop that were built this way and...
This journey started out with me asking a question about what I could do (woodworking related) with a blender motor I salvaged. See the forum topic here. Cranesgonewild (an LJ member) gave me a link to a project another LJ member had posted. Here is that project by Filinvested. The project is like a rock tumbler (for polishing rocks), but instead of rocks it takes cubes of wood and turns them into beads of wood. Pretty ingenious idea. So I decided to make one. My mother and stepmother ...
I had hoped to leave this announcement until the relevant issue of Wood Magazine came out. However people have started to recognise my Zee box as being in the next (October) issue (I am told its due to be on the newsstands 11th October) along with an article on how to make it. Strangely they (Wood Magazine) in the person of Lucas Peters approached me about featuring it. I thought it was the other way around, you submit stuff to them!. Oh well. This was way back in February as they have to ...
Hey LJ! Sorry to anyone who got the wrong video first time they viewed, I embeded the wrong video but that has now been rectified. I am by no means what you would call an experienced hand tool user and I tend to use them in conjunction with my powertools. Nevertheless following a hand tool project where I made some bookends which I did a few weeks ago… you can check that out by clicking on the link… Here! Anyway after that video I was asked about cutting dovetails so here...
