French Cleat Hooks - Repurpose Project

09-27-2014 12:37 PM by iamcliff | 2 comments »

We’ve had this old coat/key rack hanging in our garage collecting dust and whatever else didn’t have a spot. It’s basically falling apart. I also needed a dedicated spot to hang my shop apron. So, while deciding what to do, I noticed the old coat rack and came up with this. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VOvrG4Qz2w

Kid Friendly Project- A Garden Tote

08-02-2013 12:40 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

This project is a great way to get the kids involved. They can do most of the machining, definitely the sanding, and then they can get creative with the painting. This is made with 2 used fence pickets/panels that are 5’ long. They sell new ones for $1.50 at the big box stores. This take only a couple hours to make (including paint drying time). Please like, share, and subscribe to my YouTube Channel.

Miter saw station/router table...on wheels!

11-28-2012 11:56 PM by RaggedKerf | 3 comments »

For a while now (since June when my wife and I ripped out the powder bath vanity and put in the garage) I’ve been kicking around the idea of making a miter saw station. I had planned to put it on wheels to allow me to move it around the garage and out of the way when not in use. Then my father-in-law gave me his router table….and the idea got a little more complicated and took a nagging position at the back of my mind for months. I kept coming back to it and kept coming up em...

Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... #7: Breathing easier, as I save the world!!! (UPDATE! 2/26/13)

UPDATE: 2/26/13Install pictures in POST # 21Additional Filter relocation info/pictures in BLOG # 21, of this series! Greetings All, Welcome to my WORKSHOP! I CAN say that now, as I am able to work in it. I haven’t really made progress toward organization or efficiency, which makes the work I do do that much more difficult (hee hee, I said do do, in my best Butthead voice ). In my previous two blog entries, I had cut the 3/4” ply for my air cleaner (A. C.) & relocated ...

Homemade powertools #2: pen turning lathe prototype

08-16-2011 02:54 AM by Sodabowski | 19 comments »

Hey guys! Back from the mountains (alas, too soon). First this quickie blog post about what happens when you order a pen turning mandrel without owning a lathe. Being a cheap skate, and a long-time reuse-recycle-minded guy, I of course built myself a wee lathe with all recycled parts: motor from an old printer (or photocopier, can’t really remember, I dismantled so many of both…), pulleys and timing belt also from reclaimed hardware, so for the bearings (hidden in the block ...

Floating shelves

01-27-2011 05:06 PM by jbschutz | 2 comments »

Another family project…..Son wants “floating shelves” on the TV wall in their family room. After a bit of research, I happened upon a plan for using hollow core doors. Just so happens, that a neighbor threw out a couple of them a few days ago…...I grabbed them. After sawing the long way down the middle, I was left with two 8.75 inch slabs. I cut one to 6 ft and the other to 2 ft lengths. After cutting out some of the cardboard webbing, I placed a filler piece in t...
