This article was originally posted on the Little Good Pieces blog on Oct 10, 2010. When we left our bin, it was being overrun by a horde of shop cats (well, two anyway). Since that time, I added three dividers placed to give four pockets of varying sizes. The unit was then spackled, primed, and painted (yes, white). The bin, together with its pivot blocks, was worked into position. The gap was a little wider than I wanted, so I added a piece of 1/4” plywood as a shim on the le...
This blog starts half way through my journey. The story goes like this… I took the plunge and offered to take on renovating my in-laws’ 42 year old kitchen last spring. I say ‘starting’ last summer because I am now, as of Feb 2011, in the middle of what appears to be a 12-16 month project. The good news is that my wife’s folks are very flexible in allowing me to work at my own pace fitting nicely with the fact we have a busy life with kids, jobs, etc… ...
This article was first posted on the Little Good Pieces blog on September 29, 2010. While I was starting my planning for the toilet cabinet, it occurred to me that I first needed to build an outfeed table for the new tablesaw. As I was shifting gears to start on THAT, my wife reminded me that we needed some way to organize the sauce flavoring packets that were trying to take over the pantry. Sigh The need should be apparent from the above photo. What I envisioned was some sort ...
I’ve made some (7) cutting boards for this year’s Christmas gifts, but I am not completely happy with them. The boards are fairly flat, which I did with my ROS, but I wasn’t able to get rid of some of the glue squeeze out. I think it probably absorbed somewhat in the end grain as these things tend to do. Is anyone else running into these problems? Every board I see on here looks perfect. Of course I know pictures don’t always show a lot. Just haven’t he...
Ok, so first post—— I’ve just finished building what could (charitably) be called my third project. Have yet to finish it. The impetus for this is a need for somewhere to keep recycling (bottles, cans, etc) in our new house. We have entirely renovated our kitchen recently, so this is one of the final pieces of that project. It’s pine from local HD. Held together with pocket holes—no fancy joinery here. Cutting was all done on my (new!) table saw, which ...

Here’s a simple shelf that I built and installed in about an hour one morning. I needed some additional space in the kitchen to store spices. I live and work in an old two story farm house and there just wasn’t a good place to store some things. So… I built this shelf from some black walnut in my cutoff bin. I make custom gunstocks so I end up with a lot of great looking wood that’s too short, too narrow, or has some other defect that won’t make a good looking g...
There are a lot of means to cut squared ravioli. Todays plastic and Teflon gadgets are worldwide cheaply widespread by Chinese industry. However I found this piece fun to make, and got good practice for future grating pieces. And yes, I put my helmet on to compete with the excellent pieces already submitted on the CS1 !!!!! WOWWell, at least we have a ticket for LJ T shirt. This is the final piece, to mark ravioli Measure 6×6 ”, and each square is 30mm Started with a p...
