I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...
So, I decided to build an out feed table for my table saw to make it easier to handle larger pieces of material. Because I am working with limited space – like so many others out there – decided to make it a fold away support. I had some old/new door hinges stored away so they are the basis of the geometry for folding the table down. This is the frame design: Of course – some changes were made once I got rolling. I really didn’t like the thought of having to r...
Has anyone made a poker table with a rustic log look?
Well hello everyone. We have moved into our new home, and living alone at last. I have my own garage, where I have made me a desk where I can wood burn more pictures, I have done a few more and will postthem in a few days.

Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area. I’m going to make my own hinges instead of purchasing them; just brackets with dowels for the pins. Then, probably 8...
My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #6: Keeping Above Water and Learning to Tread... And Product Photos!
Hello Readers, Some people get busy just doing what they do, some people get busy learning how to do it, others get busy because they allowed themselves to get that way. Right now I’d say my process for “Product Handling Time” is working, if a customer orders a product, it is then processed and shipped normally within 3 to 6 business days of the original order. Question: “Why not 3-5, or 1-3 days instead?” Answer: “Because you never know how muc...

I’m making a small table for my wife’s TV room. All my lumberjocks friends have given me the courage and some knowhow for me to once again stretch the envelope and try the hardest project to this point. Thank you my friends! The room is very small and needs very small end tables and a small cocktail table. I figured that since the room is next to the entryway with the dodecahedron pendant light, I might as well push the theme. On top of that, I own the lumber already which h...
