Current Project #13: So much for the faux live edge.

10-13-2014 07:16 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

Well, I know I was considering creating a live edge on the old stair tread, but it didn’t work out. As I got to know the piece of wood, I came to realize it would just look like a badly curved edge, as if I couldn’t cut straight. So I ripped the board to width (5 in.) and sent it through my planer. I was left with a 3 foot long, 7/8 in. thick board with knots in it. So I centered the shelf (15 in) on the knots and used the rest for supports.The photo shows the pieces unsand...

Current Project #12: Don't tread on me (anymore)

10-08-2014 06:07 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

A while ago I found an appropriately sized piece of wood along the road to replace a stair tread on our basement stairs (safety police need not apply). Before I had time to seriously consider if I should just chuck it, or re-use it my daughter spirited it up into her room. The tread has about 5 coats of paint on it and I was weighing if I wanted to strip it or chuck it. So she’s asked if I could make a little shelf for her room out of it. Of course I will. I think I̵...

How to Cut a Dado Joint with Hand Tools

08-22-2014 12:58 AM by WoodAndShop | 1 comment »

In my above video I show how to cut a simple dado joint with basic woodworking hand tools. What is a dado joint used for? A dado joint is used for securing shelves inside cabinets or book shelves. (View the original blog post here). TOOLS THAT YOU’LL NEEDEven though I have a nice tool buying guide (here), I’m still often asked for links to the tools that I use in my videos, so here is a list of tools that I used in this video: WORKBENCH:-Sjoberg Elite 2500 Beech Workbench (with o...

Traditional Woodworking Tours #7: 1600′s English Furniture & Timber Frame Farmhouse

06-11-2014 09:45 PM by WoodAndShop | 7 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) View the original article here. In the above video you’ll see the amazing 17th Century English timber frame farmhouse that I visited recently. I was absolutely taken back by this immaculately reconstructed farmhouse and it’s gorgeous reproduction furniture from the 1600′s. So, of course, I had to share it with y’all! The farm was moved from England to the Frontier Culture Museum in historical Staunton, Virginia (thank yo...

Simple Builds #1: Easy (Ugly) Shelving Brackets

06-03-2014 11:58 AM by SalvageCraft | 3 comments »

I needed some shelves in my office area, and wanted to challenge myself to come up with a super simple yet still strong design using random scraps. They’re basically 2×2 chunks with a dado cut to accept a bit of plywood. They’ve actually got the potential to not be very ugly, but I call these ones ugly for sure on account of the smudged paint, uneven bracket sizes and scrap planks thrown on top :) I used a stack of 3 circular saw blades as my dado set. The blades alon...

How to Make a Woodworking Hand Tool Storage Board

06-02-2014 07:36 PM by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In my above video I show the woodworking “hand tool storage board” & shelf that I just designed and built to store & display some of my most used hand tools, including my chisels, marking gauges, back saws, try squares, dividers, and molding planes. In addition to using scrap to build this simple storage board (which hangs on wall studs) I built a shelf for my molding planes using simple 2×10 pine boards. The mo...

Kitchen Shelf: Step By Step #1: The support units

03-19-2014 08:15 PM by Greg Guarino | 2 comments »

We have more kitchen stuff than fits in our cabinets. We decided that a really large shelf could serve to hold some of the nicer-looking pieces, opening up room for the more utilitarian stuff behind closed doors. This started as a simple, innocent slab of wood on some store-bought brackets, but got waylaid in the design process. :) Here’s the design It’s big, about 94” long by 12” deep. It also incorporates two techniques I haven’t tried before (I’...

Book Shelf - Portable Bookshelf - for Tabletop

12-31-2013 12:24 AM by Joe Lyddon | 18 comments »

Book Shelf – Portable Bookshelf – for Tabletop Wood Magazine – May 2003 – for Plans I used a Sliding Dovetail to attach the shelf to the Ends instead of what the plans called for. I found a Bed Headboard on the street on Trash day… was solid wood! That’s what I used. I could have / should have sanded the wood a little more, but I thought it would some character to it the way I did. A little wood burning was done for a Unicorn on each End. ...

A Little Something "Extra"

11-16-2013 03:29 AM by shoutingpickel | 0 comments »

So a week or so ago I built a crown molding shelf for my soon to be born daughters room. Well I only built one and after looking at it on the wall I decided that it looked a little lonely there hanging all by itself so I did what any self respecting woodworker would do …......... I gave myself another reason to build something. I went to the store and bought the materials I would need and a little extra, you know just in case. Well my wife was with me so I couldn’t buy a much e...
