I need help finding an article/plan to make a US flag that holds the 50 state quarters. I saw the article/plan somewhere recently (in the last couple months) don’t remember what magazine or web site I saw it in/on. I’ve looked thru probably 100 magazine back issues, searched in LJ’s, and Googled it, no luck. I do remember one thing about it for sure, it said to buy the wooden stars at a craft store. The flag it’s self was waved like it would be blowing in the wind ...
In this day and age there are many tools in the woodworking world. New tools are coming out on almost a daily basis. Now with this comes the good and the bad.

instead of putting tension on the arm itself, the Davinci catapult uses the flexibility of two wooden pilars called flex rods. I will used the mortise machine to create the cradle for them then I will attach them directly to the catapult.

I need to do this on the cheap side as I spent alot of money on the shop, but on the other hand I don’t want i...
The present dictates of fashion require that every bed these days be covered in a multitude of pillows; God forbid there not be sufficient padding for one to lie their head upon. However, we men are simple creatures. One pillow, or two at the most, does it for us. This of course presents a quandary: where do we put all the stupid little throw pillows that get in the way of the useful pillows? The good people of Pottery Barn of Ethan Allen would have you buy a $600 blanket chest to stash these...
Were moving along here, this time I’ll be mitering, and this will be done with a jig on the shooting board. Like this: Two edges mitered… Outside of mitered joint, not perfectly aligned in this dry fit test. inside of joint: Now to the BIG Question… Which wood do you think I should use for the top and bottom… the choices are: Maple: Cocobolo: Purpleheart: Wenge: I also have some bubinga, but it’s a little bit to thin for the look ...
I got tired of making due with my current router table (a single sheet of MDF for a top sitting on an old HTC folding bench, rudimentary fence held on with clamps and adjusted with a hammer) and decided to build a new one. Of course, I’ve started about 3 different designs in Sketchup, and I keep finding something on this site to make me revisit it. I did settle on an overall size, so I figured I’d let the cabinet design age a bit and work on the top. I decided to make the top a to...
