I’m getting my workshop into shape, and I need a bench. I’m going to use the general plan of Bob and Dave's Good Fast and Cheap (link to .pdf) bench because it looks like a good beginners project for me, I can adjust it easily to fit my space, and I’ll be able to afford to do it in a reasonable time frame. The bench is built all out of laminated 2x stock, so I’ll get practice gluing up as well as the carpentry. Mortise and tenon joints on the legs, also somet...
Hello again! This time, I give dimensions and most important drawings of the components.I have a strip of plywood in my previous project (15×20mm) so I use this.All dimensions are in millimeters. here is the drawing for fitting the side of the box Next time, cut out parts:)
OK, so the original plan has hit some bumps and our DR has moved our due date up to this Sunday so we need a changing table and we need one yesterday. I was at HD this morning picking up a small piece of plywood to fix a glider footstool with and I saw in their bargain bin some “Espresso” particle board shelves which are the same color as our crib and this gave me some ideas. I grabbed 5 of those and some culled lumber and today it will somehow become a changing table that wil...
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...

The drawing my woodworking buddy did for me.
In my last blog entry I mentioned that I was going to be busy the rest of the month of April and it’s been worse than I even imagined. I have been stealing away time to work on the bed that realistically should have been finished two weeks ago. So here is an update on the queen size A&C style bed I’ve been building. I stained everything this week as well as putting on the coat of glaze and then a coat of wipe on poly. Today I put about four hour into assembling the head and foot boards...
So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...
