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...

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...
So I was surfing the net and found a video about a guy (a real woodworker) making a cart for his vacuum and accessories. This is of real interest to me as I have got to be real careful of breathing and the lungs. So I said, ” I have already got the cart so just build the rest. Started by rounding up all of my vacuum accessories (I think) and planning how to best store them. I came up with a system of three shelves. The first on has a cut out to fit the different size vacuum ...

I built this extended jaws fixture for holding bowls while finishing their bottoms a few months back. It has worked well for me when I had only eight of the tapered holding buttons. The problem was removing the extended jaws and the holding buttons and then screwing the buttons into the proper holes to use the jig with 8” and smaller bowls. To combat this time consuming configuration change picked up more buttons and 6mm mounting screws at Lowes. I can now leave the outer row of but...

Its been a a long few years in highschool and a solid maple workbench will be my final project. Ive been designing it for months and finally received the wood 90 BF of 8/4 hard maple. My portion being the 7 lighter colored boards on the left. Let the bench begin! Starting to shape up , i should mention the finish on these boards was fantastic , they had warped some but the faces were nearly flat and already smoothed making it much less work to joint flat surfaces. The smaller boards we...
I started by using 1/2” birch veneer ply to build the sides. I cut three 1/2” dados along each side 1/4” deep for the shelves and base and the cut the shelves to measure and glued the all in place. The top I lapped over 1/2” on each side and 1” to the front to accommodate the door and drawer fronts.
