Project Ideas, Hmm... #6: They've rearranged the office

08-04-2016 08:07 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

A while ago I made a customized shelf/desk for my church’s office, and some time later I made this spine desk which is a knock off of a commercially available one. (You can click on the photos below to see the project page for each one.) But now they’ve rearranged the office and instead of the spine desk, that person wants a booster desk to go on her desktop. Plus the person I made the shelf/desk for wants something else as well. I don’t mind the changing needs i...

Shop Organization #2: Quick and Easy Lumber Storage Rack

05-20-2016 05:10 AM by ThomasLightle | 1 comment »

I sold my old lumber storage solution which was… inelegant, to put it lightly. I am purposely storing this set of lumber outside, half because I ran out of room in my indoor storage, but also to have a bit of weathered wood handy, should the need arise. I went simple with this, using some pallet runners, I bored some holes at a slight angle ever so slightly undersized for the conduit pieces I had prepared as shelf supports. I then attached the wood brackets to the wall and hammered in...

Cookbook Shelf Units #8: Biscuits, shelves, prefinishing, final assembly, HOORAY!

12-22-2014 03:49 AM by Greg Guarino | 0 comments »

I’m finally finished, but I’ve fallen behind in the blog description. Biscuits for the uprights:Each upright “leg” consists of a 1×3 and a 1×2 joined at a right angle with a small shadow line. Biscuits seemed like the right method: Then I did a dry fit: Everything went together well enough, so I decided to glue up the “ladder” sides. Although I tend to prefinish everything before gluing, I decided it would be too time-consuming to pr...

Staircase/Pantry Remodel...

11-06-2014 07:02 PM by JohnnyMike | 3 comments »

The pantry in our bush house needed some remodeling. The “staircase” inside was really more of a ladder. My wife uses it everyday to go to the loft and hang laundry to dry and has had some close calls when trying to come down. So we did a remodel and built a more legitimate staircase, which also meant moving all of my solar equipment. All the lumber used was from trees I cut down and slabbed. Hopefully this staircase will prove to be more safe (at least after I make a handrail.) ...

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...

Cookbook Shelf Units #3: Drilling the Dowel Holes

05-26-2014 04:01 AM by Greg Guarino | 2 comments »

They’re done. All 256 of them. I rethought and then reconfigured the jig a bit so I could keep the same reference surface when drilling both ends of the “rungs”. It went very quickly: That was the very first one and it took a little under a minute. 32 of them took a little under a half hour. Next I had to drill the mating holes in the stiles. I rebuilt the jig from the same parts, marked up the pieces, and started drilling: With some trepidation, I dry fit tw...

Boys Bedroom (cape cod) #1: Where I am so far

03-11-2014 02:58 AM by Questtut | 1 comment »

So, it is time for my boys to get their own room. They are getting too big for their cribs, and I need to finish that spare bedroom for them so they can have their own space. We have a small cape cod home, originally 4 bedrooms when we moved in, but we made it 3, creating a master bedroom downstairs by combining the 2 smaller rooms. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, shaped like a plus symbol, and a small half bath (currently unusable as well). The bath will be a project for another day...

Setting Up Shop #4: My Paradise

05-04-2013 02:15 AM by Rex B | 7 comments »

I moved into my house last May, and I think I can finally say that my shop is pretty well set up. For me, the perfect shop is one in which every tool has its own reserved place. That way I can put my tools up every day and easily find them the next time I need them. I guess you can say I’m a bit of a neat freak, but that’s just the way I am! I like to make custom hangers for a lot of my tools. They can be a good way to kill a little time in the shop between larger projects, and...

Getting Organized with recessed Shelf Units

01-23-2013 09:37 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 3 comments »

In my last video I showed you all the renovation of the old shop space, during that renovation, I made some recess cavities in one wall of the shop. In this video I walk you through the steps of making the recess shelf unit to go into those cavities. These recess shelves are not just for the shop, they can be used in the home as well! Add some glass shelves and you have a nice knick-knack display shelf, or use them around the home for any organizing needs.
