Here is a video showing how to make a simple Adirondack Style chair from a single pallet using just a few screws and a jigsaw. This is the second chair like this that I have made. This project took less than 20 minutes to complete https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-Tkty5E_2c
These make a great gift and also can easily be batch made for craft shows. Total cost for this build was $20. Check it out, share, and subscribe!
My filming stuff has been laying all over. Batteries in one box, camera in another, tripod somewhere else. I figured it was time to make a box to hold all my stuff. I was able to cut everything on my Ridgid bandsaw and then cut all the rabbets and dadoes on my router table. Very simple yet strong construction. Click here to view on YouTube.

The outdoor table has finally been finished and now ready for use. Check out all this past weeks Vlogs for build steps and please subscribe for daily videos!
Our church has a pair of 12 foot long pews in the narthex (foyer). They are breaking apart and cannot be easily repaired. For a while I’ve been trying to think of a bench design that would be simple, sturdy and good for the indoors. I know I can’t build a 12 foot long bench. I just don’t have the ability to transport the wood, nor the finished bench. I figure I could build 6 foot benches, but the big question is what to make them look like? Anyone out there have ideas? ...
Sometimes motivation behind building something as opposed to buying has to do with availability. Sometimes it has to do with cost. Sometimes it has to do with quality. In this case it has to do with all three. I set out to build blast gates with scrap material I had laying around. Mainly I did this because I didn’t want to have to order blast gates and deal with the shipping, and the cheap ones seemed a little….flimsy? There are high quality ones out there, but why pay for th...
I don’t like the idea of breathing in dust while running my machinery any more than the next guy (er, woodworker.) A few years ago, when we finally stopped using our last box fan, I hid it away, having an idea to re-purpose it down the road. So a few weeks ago, I decided to take another step towards a safer shop. I dug out the fan and cleaned it up. After checking that it still ran OK, I went out and bought one of those filters for forced hot air heating systems and installed it on...
[Below] The brackets are held on by glue alone. This is still working fine for the shelf I made for my daughter last year. Here you can see my fancy tape clamps holding things together. [Below] A few coats of spray lacquer and I call the shelf done. The installed shelf can be seen on the [project page].
[Below] I stuck the two brackets together with double sided tape and sanded the rough band sawed edge. [Below] Then I set my router to add some decoration to the outside edges. In this photo I’m setting the guide bearing of a Roman ogee bit to the halfway point of the thickness of the wood. [Below] Only the top portion of the bit is used, giving the edge a concave groove. [Below] The brackets get this treatment on both sides. It not only fancies it up, but also make...
[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] My daughter asked for another shelf in her room. Here’s how I made it. [Below] I had an old pine board which had previously been employed in a bookshelf at our church. I planed it both sides to remove the dark stain and correct a slight cupping. (I wish I had photographed that as a tip. Basically you support the concavity with a strip of wood, then plane it off.) I ripped the board down on the table saw and cut out the length of shelf I needed. You c...
