Kid Friendly Project- A Garden Tote

260 days ago 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.

Great way to reuse materials. I’m doing this with a standard pallet.

Trash to Treasure - Headboard

450 days ago by JSB | 2 comments »

From now on I think it will be easier to update the original post instead of making multiple posts in series. Video 1 is done and I will update as the project continues. Click the green “watch” button above this post if you would like to be updated as the project concludes. Thanks for watching! I found some great maple hidden in this headboard. Maple from this salvage, GREEN poplar from the mattress salvage, and some walnut from an old sofa salvage will turn into some cool look...

Bread Cutting Board

506 days ago by David Craig | 14 comments »

The rumors are true. Occasionally, I actually do some woodworking. Many times I just have a limited amount of time and don’t post. I still need to get a digital camera to make the process easier. I was asked if I could make a dozen small bread cutting boards to be used for sending loaves out, along with jam, as Christmas gifts. As luck would have it, the same person also wanted me to help get rid of an old red oak hutch for her. So I am killing two birds with one stone here. The h...

This Week In the Shop #8: Tool Box

901 days ago by WhiskeyWaters | 2 comments »

The new tool box at work. It’s not a pretty thing, but the design has a long gestation. Chris Schwarz has been promoting his conversion to hand tools for years now – and he finally documents the slow spiral in “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest”. He’s got a book, I guess I have a blog. Either way, I decided on a 24″ by 18″ by 18″ dovetailed box. The moldings and bottoms were nailed and glued on, while the top has a split piano hinge as it’s method of movement. Most of the dovetails are ...

Homemade powertools #2: pen turning lathe prototype

977 days ago 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 ...

Sand-Lot 2: The Question

1195 days ago by WhiskeyWaters | 6 comments »

A reprint from www.woodshopcowboy.com Returned to school last week with so much to do and catch up on (I did make it to Boston and missed a long day full of meetings and schedule-making). I had several gorgeous “woodworking-as-the-way” moments, only one of which I’ll share. One of my neurologically different students asked to meet the teacher he was making a clock-face for. A huge step for a young man that struggles to hold simple conversations for longer than 5 minutes and finds connect...
