I am in the process of building five different jewelry boxes as showcase pieces for a business I am trying to launch. All of the boxes are mirror images of each other except I used different types of wood on each one. This picture shows how the boxes looked a few days ago. Notice the one in the back with the TurtleSoup inlay??? Each box is getting its own decorative inlay built on it because that is what EZInlays.com sells, kits that will allow the average (and trust me on this my sk...
The one Project Video I get asked the most to make is how to build a crosscut sled for the Tablesaw. Well there are a lot of videos out there on making a Cross cut sled, so this is my take on it. I hope you can take something from this video and use it in your shop
Well I finally finished the Tablesaw Base, trying to film during rain storms is almost impossible with the ambient noise from the rain hitting the metal roof.. but I waited it out, and am very happy with the outcome.. Here is a look at the final steps of building this base
Recently I had a need to build a new table saw base for my saw. Rather than just building a simple replacement base, I opted to build one with lots of storage potential. This new base measures 6 feet long by 2 feet wide, which gave me good reason to move over to the new shop building. I haven’t yet finished the new shop set up ( haven’t even started) but this build is a great start giving me lots of options for storage potential… This build is a 2 part project. So be sure to...
In this video I show you how to make a simple yet elegant lift lid box. These little boxes can be made with with different woods to give them their own character, and due to the simplicity they can be made in batches.. They make a great gift to give someone. The boxes in the videos are made from Spalted Pecan, White Oak, & Mahogany. Each Box was finished with 2 coats of Danish Oil to bring out the natural beauty and color of the woods. Also in the video I talk about an upcoming project...
How in the world did over 200 days pass by since my last entry?! Wow. Yes – I’m still working on this project. Yes – the clients are still my very good friends (bless them!). Yes – I still look forward to Sundays in my “shop”. The carcasses are done and have been hanging out in my (still unfinished) master closet. The base cabinet has been the focal point of the wall, so I have been diligent and careful in the milling and assembly ...
Well this week was a busy week and I didn’t get to make a video project for this past Wednesday. So I thought I would Share this quick project video with you today. For a recent project I needed to make a larger version of an angle gauge to allow me to get the exact angle of an inside corner of a corner shower. After borrowing one from a fellow woodworker, I decided I needed one for the shop. Here is a look at making the simple but very useful over sized angle finder. These are commonly...
One of my favorite pass times is playing pool (Billiards) and I thought this would be a cool project to share with you. If you have a pool table in your house or man cave or if you know someone who owns a pool table this would be a great gift to give… Also be sure to check out and subscribe to my new Youtube Channel “The Rundown” to get follow ups on my main project videos, that are on my main channel, as well as the rundown on small easy to build projects, ...
