Mobile Torsion Box Workbench #3: Torsion Box Top

578 days ago by Ron Stewart | 6 comments »

The top of my workbench is a 4” thick torsion box: 3/4” birch plywood panels on either side of a frame of 2.5”x1.5” yellow pine members. When designing the top, these were my primary considerations: I wanted it to be flat and strong, and not too light. I wanted an array of dog holes. I decided that spacing them 6” center-to-center would be good enough for my surface vise. I wanted every dog hole to be in, or backed by, solid wood. That way, even if the h...

Bathroom Vanity #1: Plan and Started Building

782 days ago by Drifter | 2 comments »

Earlier this year we decided to remodel one of the bathrooms – meaning my lovely wife started demolishing the tile in the tub and it was my job to get it done. That seems to be the way our bigger projects start – she gets the ball rolling for me. Now that the tub is replaced with a 22” soaker and the tile has been sealed and the caulking is in place it is time to start on the rest of it. Because we haven’t decided if we are going to redo the floor I have started o...

French screen doors #3: Mounting grills and door reinforcement

867 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

This third installment includes a short narrated slideshow of the mounting of the grills made in the last installment and the continued reinforcement of the door. If you remember, I’m making a set of screen doors for set of Anderson french exterior doors. Anyone have any recommendations on a good outside finish for pine? I’m thinking spar or marine varnish.

Lauren's Bed #1: A Start to the Modified Captain's Bed for Lauren

1317 days ago by Jesse Schutt | 0 comments »

I’ve been slowly working on building a modified captain’s bed for my 3 year old daughter. I thought I’d document some of the progress here. It’s been a fun project so far and my wife is itching for me to get it completed. This is the initial concept that I came up with after seeing a similar bed in a local furniture store. Lauren’s room isn’t very large, so having some storage under the bed is really a bonus. Lauren outgrew her crib and small b...

Recycling Cabinet

1389 days ago by Dave S | 2 comments »

Ok, so first post—— I’ve just finished building what could (charitably) be called my third project. Have yet to finish it. The impetus for this is a need for somewhere to keep recycling (bottles, cans, etc) in our new house. We have entirely renovated our kitchen recently, so this is one of the final pieces of that project. It’s pine from local HD. Held together with pocket holes—no fancy joinery here. Cutting was all done on my (new!) table saw, which ...

Hallway seat with drawer storage

1445 days ago by jsquared | 2 comments »

I have undertaken my first solo project without having someone around watching that knows more about making stuff than me – the garage was empty except for me. My wife had requested, about 1 year ago, that I make this bench for the hallway leading to the laundry room that would be a place where we can sit, take off our shoes and have a place to store them. Since I was slow to act, she bought a wicker basket that shoes get thrown in. Finally, I started on this project over Labor day week...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: It's time for a cabinet meeting!

1460 days ago by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

The great cabinet build started in earnest on Thursday.  Before any cabinets got built, however, I had to wait for a little help to show up to cut the full sheets of plywood down.  While waiting I gave the shop a pretty good cleaning and even managed to organize my sheet good pile. I even manged to measure and label all of the partial sheets with their size, including thickness. With the layout of my shop, cleaning up this space was very important in order to have a clear path...

I Won 10,000 Kreg Screws!!!

1480 days ago by Mark Whitsitt | 11 comments »

Well, the decision has been made, and yours truly won the 10,000 screw grand prize in the Kreg User Community photo contest. I get to choose up to 3 styles of screw, and that’s no easy decision! I live in Iowa, about 30 minutes from the Kreg factory, so I’ve arranged with KregRep (on the User Community site) to drive to Huxley, IA to pick up the prize in person. I’ve also asked for a tour of the facility, and I’ll review my visit here in the next couple of weeks. ...
