Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #37: Fruit & Veggie Bin

03-22-2015 03:17 PM by Paul Bucalo | 4 comments »

I decided to rough sketch the fruit and veggie bin I plan on making for a corner of the kitchen. Currently we are using a two-bin round steel thingie that works, but is too small for our needs. This will be about twice the height and wider than the steel unit in place. Exact dimensions will be determined when I get around to drafting up plans. I have plenty of pallet wood and reclaimed lumber to make this with. The only change to the drawing I may still make is to replace the bottom bin sl...

Dovetail Toolchest

03-19-2015 08:23 PM by Gbluee | 1 comment »

I needed an upgrade in my shop for my Lutherie tools and I didn’t want to get those pricy steel tool box to go in my woodworking environment. So I sat down at my drawing table and tried to come up with something to accommodate my need, at a reasonable price, and made of wood. I made this tool chest with only 4 boards of 8’x6”x1” of black Walnut. I always love the Idea of not using screws and/or nails, therefore I made a Dovetail construction. The entire construction was completed in 4 mont...

Combine #1: Chassis

03-10-2015 08:53 PM by Dutchy | 8 comments »

I started building a wooden combine. Below a set of pictures of the building proces of the chassis. I made this chassis out of 6 pieces. On the construction drawing it is one piece. I like to use more pieces. I have no pretensions to say that this is the right way, It is only my way. It is quite possible making the chassis out of one piece. Thanks for watching

So I am very new to this. My first ever blog on any site, not to mention my first day as a member of this site. Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking about my next project, along with creating a lot of plans using sketchup. I have been torn to either remodel my shop to make it more of and efficient work space, which leads me to the money aspect of it. I don’t have a ton of extra cash to fund the project, so my thought was to us some of my project plans I have been working on ...

The first hurdl...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #66: American Girl Furniture patterns

03-03-2015 02:18 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

Hello woodworkers I have a question. I have turned a lot of my attention to creating furniture for 18 inch dolls, like American Girl. I have the book by Dennis Simmons, “Making Furniture and Dollhouses … ” and it seems to be the only printed resource for patterns. I have every copy of ScrollSaw Woodworking mag that contains a pattern for this. I have searched the internet and “YES” I have seen all of the suggestions about using ratios to change patterns to fit...

Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest #1: The beginning

02-27-2015 04:27 PM by johnstoneb | 3 comments »

I have always wanted to build a Gerstner style wooden tool box but the drawers were designed more for a machinist than woodworking. The project has stayed on the backburner for a long time. A few months ago i saw a picture and downloaded an article from FWW on the Essential Toolbox by Mike Pekovich. I had built a wall cabinet based on his design earlier and found that the design lent itself very well to personalizing it. The toolchest design seemed to be the same way. I really wanted a th...

How to Plans at Matt’s Basement Workshop

02-17-2015 07:24 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

For years I have watch the working podfather Matt Vanderlist, build things in his basement workshop. Many times as he is building a project some of his viewers ask him if he would provide plans of his projects. I can understand the hurtle he faced in providing plans, sitting down and drawing a complete set of how to plans is a huge time commitment, on top of his video editing schedule. As I was drawing some concepts drawings for a client, it hit me. Why don’t I offer to draw plans for h...
