Cherry Daybed

09-01-2009 04:44 AM by Ryan Brown | 6 comments »

My wife wanted a daybed that we could put in one of our spare bedrooms for when we have more than one couple stay the night. We searched high and low, but couldn’t find anything that we liked. So, I downloaded Google SketchUp and started playing around. My wife and I both like the arts and crafts and shaker styles, so that’s more or less what I based it on. It’s not true to form, since I had a tight deadline on getting it done, so no mortise and tenon joints. I ...

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...

Video: French Cleat Finishing Supply Rack + Free Plans

02-11-2014 02:25 PM by JSB | 3 comments »

Hello lumberjocks. I’m in the process of getting more organized with the use of a French cleat system in my shop. My latest addition is a finishing supply rack. It holds 32 cans of spray paint, 15 quart size cans, and some more finishing supplies. The benefit is that you can always see what you have at first glance. For those who are interested here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXc5jk2Do1s

Hanging Shorts Storage

04-05-2009 04:10 AM by sIKE | 12 comments »

Well get this done, despite my best efforts. The design I posted works well. I did make a couple of changes though. It is deeper than originally planed. The other is on the back inside bottom I used my pocket hole jig to make a couple of 1”x1” runners for the plywood to screw into. I also used the same thing up front to create a lip. It is working as planned, I have freed up an entire shelf on my Rack that is on my wall.

Storage Beds #1: First Project in a Long Time

02-24-2012 10:58 PM by gubawatts | 0 comments »

I found some great ideas for building storage beds for our two boys on the internet, at Ana White Homemaker. After studying these plans for a bit, I decided I wanted to make some changes, mainly to upgrade the joinery methods and make the base cabinets deeper, so they met in the middle under the box spring. So, here’s what I came up with after learning google sketchup, and going through a few design revisions. This bed is basically made up of several box cabinets that will be bolted ...

Videos by HuckD #16: Edge Guide for the Kreg Mini Pocket Hole Jig

01-05-2016 03:38 AM by HuckD | 0 comments »

DIY solution to using the mini Kreg pocket hole jig on 1.5” thick lumber. It’s simple and easy to build. It’s made from shop cutoffs and a little common hardware. It even makes the mini jig easier to use on 3/4 stock. Sometimes the simple things work well. https://youtu.be/mr1jDFCXHt8

Entertainment Center #4: Base, Shelves, and Top

05-24-2011 05:20 AM by Marc | 1 comment »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. As promised, I completed the base of the entertainment center this time, along with a couple of other little details. The base is just made up of four corner blocks and four rails screwed together with some pocket screws. The corner blocks were actually pretty easy to make although…

Garage Tool Cabinets #1: Size and Materials Planning

07-31-2013 03:05 PM by Parsimonia | 3 comments »

So after making a large workshop upper cabinet, and then a glass door cabinet, I decided to start making more cabinets to store garden tools in the garage. While I’m at it, I decided to make two, one for long handled tools, and another with shelves for smaller stuff. I made the previous cabinets with maple, and it seems like a waste of money to make a garden tool cabinet out of relatively expensive wood, but hey, if I’m going to all the trouble, it might as well look good. I al...
