Pallet Craft #8: Bunk Bed Recycled Quick Fix!

07-20-2012 01:03 PM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

For more on this and other posts, visit: Pallet Craft! Hey all! Today I have something cool to share! So we just got a bunk bed (see my blog for type) second hand for my daughter to have in her room.As we were building it we were saying to ourselves that we wanted to put her stuffed animals on the bottom, but we did not have a second mattress yet and the bottom only had a metal wire support. It was safe to say we wanted to put something on it that would be better than bare metal! My wif...

Outdoor Furniture #12: Patio Planter Boxes - Finished!

06-26-2012 10:44 PM by Retsof | 1 comment »

I finished painting my patio planter boxes today. I like the way they came out. Thanks to the mortise and tenon, and panel construction, they are very sturdy. The were a lot of dadoes, mortises, tenons, and trim to cut for this project, but it was a lot of fun fitting all the pieces together. The colors are Martha Stewart’s “Monk’s Glove” and “Chianti” from Home Depot. Working on these in my garage attracted a lot of attention. As I was fi...

My Workbench Saga #1: Three tries to get a good bench.

06-16-2012 11:30 PM by Bob B. | 3 comments »

My Workbench Saga I am a relatively new woodworker. I had grand visions of building furniture when I started on this quest nearly five years ago but all I have managed to actually build are storage sheds, animal shelters, and a couple of amateur shelving units that I am embarrassed to show anyone with real skills. My journey toward building an actual piece of furniture I can be proud of has progressed in fits and starts. I have read countless books, magazines, web articles, and forum posts...

Out in the shop #1: Upper Shop Cabinets $36.70

05-28-2012 12:58 AM by MichaelAgate | 8 comments »

Matthew and I were going to do a video this weekend but got side tracked with the need for storage. Things are piling up and disorder is setting in. Time to get things in order a little. Last week I added a drawing for shop cabinets to the free plans section on www.thenewfoundlandwoodworker.com . They are very basic, and cheap. This is them :)Mind the doors, they are stuck on with double faced tape for now. Hinges Monday Cabinet Size14 1/4×33 1/4 Materials1 sheet 5/8 D grade pl...

Table Saw Workstation #1: A Beginning

05-15-2012 01:31 AM by scamp238 | 5 comments »

I have decided to build a table saw workstation. I am on a tight budget, so I am doing this with lumber that I have picked up from various places. I haven’t really paid for any of it save the gas I use to pick it up. Some of it was brought to me by coworkers and friends. I bought a Craftsman contractor table saw several months ago for $75.00. It had one of those metal stands below it with some small casters. It held the saw, but the space below the saw is basically wasted. Since my s...

2012 Bodega Bay Fish Fest Wooden Boat Challenge

05-10-2012 04:24 PM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

3 hours. 2 sheets of cheap CDX 3/8” plywood, 10 1×2s, 2 2×2s, a sheet of plastic, 2 tubes of caulk, a bunch of deck screws, a few nails, some rope, some ductape, a few other details. Hand tools only, except for battery powered drill/drivers. And then you race. An amazing day out at the end of April in Bodega Bay here in Sonoma County in Northern California, I highly recommend coming out for it, either as a contestant (and this two-year winner is thinking about ways to appro...

Homemade tools and hardware #3: Quickslap pen lathe update

05-02-2012 09:01 PM by Sodabowski | 7 comments »

Hi guys, On the “fast & furious” series, I had some nice time with the parents at our countryside home, and grabbed a mahogany cutoff in one of them bins, cut it to size and brought it back home (along with some goodies for someone here that will recognize himself ;) Just attached it to the pen lathe (drill press helped drill and countersink the holes), the previous part was a crappy plywood chunk which edge was quite worn off, resulting in less than linear motion fo...

Virtual Pinball Machine #4: The Finished Product

04-30-2012 06:03 PM by milbert | 2 comments »

I thought it would be cool to follow up and post the finished product of my Virtual Pinball Experience. It actually turned out so good that I got asked multiple times whether we gutted an actual pinball machine to build this. There’s also a short video so you can see it in action. Thanks for looking!

Don't have the money for a table saw, then Make your Own!!!!

04-29-2012 11:43 AM by Woodworker_Collins | 10 comments »

I started this project a while ago but only finished it now this idea has been done before but most people just cut a slot in some plywood and attach their circular saw, whereas i got a piece of MDF and attached it to a black and decker workmate, i cut a recess in it for my circular saw and screwed into place, i cut mitre slots in the top of the mdf so i can make jigs to attach to the saw (crosscut sled) then i made a custom clamp that tightens very hard to the table. Materials cost is ar...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #683: Monitor Project Complete - All Systems Go!

04-26-2012 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Well, as the title states, the monitor stand project is just about complete. We are both very happy with the results and feel like we made a great investment in purchasing these stands. We went from this: To this: The entire transformation was under a week, which included the delivery time for the monitor stands. We ordered them last Thursday and they were here by Monday and we were ready to start building then. My old stand was completely eliminated, freeing up valuable f...
