Take two speaker boxes that are worse for wear, and kind of water logged. Then say, “heck they aren’t exactly cheap speakers either. ummmmmmm” Mission speakers. Remove guts of both speakers. Put in plasted container and seal. Turn round and now say… “ummm now what?... followed by a gulp, ”...and he wants two… hmmmm “ Okay we first made a router jig so we can do some nice daedo to fit the speakers into and then finish the cross cut tab...
I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.http://airfieldmodels.com/information_source/how_to_articles_for_model_builders/tools/magnetic_building_board/variable_angle_fixtures.htm
After Thanksgivings #s two and three, after two days of painting our bedroom and cleaning up the mess that created, it was finally time to turn my attention to the keyholder. My dad was nice enough to give me his inherited router, which was the piece of equipment that lit a fire under my hobby-searching self. For some reason, the idea of rounding edges or being able to cut canals out of wood made the whole thing a lot more appealing. Here’s my makeshift workshop: That’...
creativity sparks creativity of a different sort.
So i was recently given a chance to make a coffee table for my local tattoo shop, and while they aren’t picky, i do have about a $300 limit, maybe more if I really impress. Today i started drawing up plans and looking up stuff online. so far the table top will be 62×34 inches with runners, stretchers and prefab legs. which brings me to my next question, where is the best place to look that has the biggest assortment of 12 to 16 inch turned/tapered legs? i did a google search but wa...

My first project that I have posted is a 24×6x24 pipe smoking cabinet that holds (36) pipes. As shown below: Now its time to start on the base unit. I need storage for my pipe tobacco which is stored in a number of different sized and shaped containers. Mason jars of different sizes, round or square metal tins, gasket-lid jars, etc… That can be accomplished rather easily, I would think, with standard fixed or adjustable shelving. I also need storage for pipe cleaners, li...
Finally finished up the first two: And just in time as it seems our friends are all having babies at once. So I’m trying some others and practicing on the lathe. The two dumbbell shaped ones below are similar to the above two. Still need to be sanded and finished. I read about painting / staining with food coloring so I think I will try that with the lighter one. I also bought some walnut and birch dowels, cut them and hollowed them out with the router. I then filled th...
I decided to make some last minute stocking fillers for family and friends, this year it was Cheese Boards, I bought some hardwood sheets from HomeCenter, unfortunately there was no description as to what wood was used to make up these sheets, but it had a nice grain.To make the process easier, I decided to make a another Spindle Sander which could be used on the Pillar Drill, or as is described in ‘The Family Handyman’, a drum sander. The idea being this is clamped on the ...
Design I’ll be posting most of the in-depth instructions and photos on my website WoodWorkersWebsite.com but I also wanted to mention a few things here regarding what I’ve learned while making this project. It’s the second indoor project, the first was a clock. I spend most of my time practicing my woodworking skills by making things for my garage. I designed this project myself which makes it very different from following a plan. I’ve designed almost everythin...
