Saw a cool idea on Stumpy Nubs YouTube. A downdraft table imbedded into another table. I think that will make a great addition to my assembly table. I think I can cut out a section to add the downdraft table and a piece of Masonite to cover the holds when not needed to make a flush surface. Floated the idea with Drew (Rock-n-H Woodshop) we’ll see what he has to say. He built a better version assembly bench not tool long ago. Already working on how-to build a new fixture to inser...
It’s that time of year again and it seems the question of how to deal with rust on the iron tops of machinery come up in all the forums about now. In response to this I make a quick video of how I deal with it. This is not the only way to do it, but it is inexpensive and works. I hope this is helpful, it is a pretty quick process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4RoSUaPPx0
The Pallets in my shop tend to stack up as materials for projects arrive. So to get rid of them I decided to build a few farm crates which after I was done I took down to the Local craft shows and farmers markets. They are an easy sell. It seems everybody loves a good farm crate.

My wife would like a new mirror in our bathroom over the vanity. She want’s better lighting so she can put her make-up on. I have an idea I want to use but, I’m not sure on the lighting issue. I’ve thought about putting can lights in the valance over the mirror. Will the lights get too hot in the valance encasement? Should I use low wattage lights such as LED’s? If I do, will the LED’s be sufficient lighting for her? Should I scrap the whole Idea and just ...
I wanted to take a picture of my wife’s new kitchen bureau, spice rack, and utensil hanger so that I colud post the finished work here on my blog. I wanted people to see what I was talking about. When she caught me taking pictures of her kitchen, however, my wife stopped me. She refused to let me post pictures that included the crummy cabinets above the counter. At the very least, she wanted to replace the forty five year old formica veneered cabinet doors. Wanting both to please my...
This is a Stanley #29 Fore plane that I converted into a chute plane. Since I am on a tight budget, I couldnt afford a LV or LN chute plane, so I decided to make a chute plane from a transitional plane after seeing what poopiekat came up with. Bought the 29 off the bay for less than 20 bucks. When I got it it needed a little work to flatten the sole and square the right side to the sole. I then needed to come up with a way to get the tote to a comfortable position, so I fitted a block to fit ...
Right after she loaded all of her things into her new kitchen bureau, my wife was cleaning the sawdust off of her Jars of things that I had borrowed and putting them in her new spice rack. She glanced at the side of the refrigerator, which is just right of her new bureau, which sits between that and and her stove, and decided that she needed a utensil hanger there. What she described like a piece of plywood nailed to a 2x that extended out from the end of the cabinet where it came up agains...
I saw this as I was trying to understand routers and the myriad bits and bobs that go along with them. I thought it a clever idea and wanted to keep track of it, and I reckoned some of you might think so too, so here it is. A Jig for Precision Trimming by Nick EnglerFrom The Ultimate Router Guide: Jigs, Joinery, Projects & More from Popular Woodworking, David Thiel (ed.) http://bookzz.org/md5/cac43aff6807bd5e1f0b967890121057 Once upon a time I had the brilliant idea to use a strip...
Somewhere recently I was watching a video where Bench Cookies were mentioned. I then ran down into my shop and poured out the contents of my ‘wood wheels’ which are mainly the plugs I save from my hole saw. I had 4 plugs about 2 inches in diameter and close to 1 inch thick. I pulled out a place mat that I saved from the trash. It’s made from shelf liner material. I glued the plugs onto the placemat with contact cement and trimmed them out. Now I have 4 bench cookies...
