I live in an old somewhat of a bungalow style house.It had been “updated” over the years (read in poorly remodeled” before we bought it.I have been working on it for years fixing past “updates” We enjoy the Arts & Crafts style and are trying to finish the house to the degree. I redid the living room years ago and it has served us well.Now it is time to start adding the details we desire. Where we were…............... I started off with ...
Our house has a large empty loft with a dormer. We don’t use this space as of now. The loft will one day be a play room for our children. This is a sketch of what I have planned for the dormer. This is a day bed with shelves on either side and a trundle drawer pull out. It will be a great space for kids to sit and read, take naps and have sleep overs. Below is a sketch of a mural that will be painted on the underside of the arch. I want this to have a very whimsical but ti...

I currently have an old craftsman table saw. The saw itself works fine, it’s the table that is not very good. The center table seems ok, the “extensions” on either side are bent, and I’m afraid that the fence might not be straight either. Here’s what I want to do: tear the saw down to just the mechanics and the center table. Build a cabinet for it, with dust collection (which is absent on the current one), bigger surface for ripping sheets, and a longer fence. An...
I am going to attempt to build a box for my father in law to store coins in. The criteria is fairly simple. ( in theory ) The box must be small enough to fit inside a floor safe, yet big enough to be able to carry multiple coins to a show. Box size will be approx. 8.5” x 8.5” x 12” deep, with three flush mounted drawers in the front, with 3 storage compartments running the length of each drawer that will be used to store coin display cards that are 2” square. I ...
For those of you who know Chris Schwarz and the quaint little magazine he’s been producing for a number of years now, you’ll be excited to know that Woodworking Magazine is now available via subscription. They have no advertisements and are packed full with expert technique, plans, and editorials. I couldn’t find the magazine locally, so I bought electronic editions online. Now I’ll be getting one of the better magazines known to the craft 4 times a year. I shoul...

One of my assignments, when allowing students to pick their own projects, is for them to make an idea book. What is required of them is to come up with a general project, hopefully on they plan on building, and find at least 20 examples of that type of project. Example: Nightstand or Medicine Cabinet, etc. Each example is worth a total of 5 points equaling 100. They get 2 points for the photo of the project, one point for the manufacturer or the builder of the project, and 2 points for th...
