When ideas come to mind, I find it imperative that I should try to work it out. The least I can do is to make a sketch or visualization of what that idea is all about, lest it goes to waste. The lowly saw horse is an example. There are many versions, from simple to complex. Some are easy to build the others require more advance skills. My version I would think is fairly easy. http://www.flickr.com/photos/edurink/sets/72157624855604149/detail/ The illustrations were done with “Wing...
So I started working on the first box tonight. I am working with 1/2” walnut that I ordered from WoodCraft. I had decided to take 1” off the front of the prototype and add 1” in width instead. Now the inside compartment can comfortably hold an iPhone or Droid. First I ripped the board to 2” wide then proceeded to cut it to 4 pieces each 6” long. Next I routed out a 1/2” dado for the dividing wall slot. After routing a dado for the box botto...
After posting my “Floor Dominoes” project, several readers expressed interest in how the dominoes were made. I wrote the following article and, with minor differences, it has now been posted on both Lumberjocks and on Rockler Woodworking’s “Buzz Saw” site...Set size: Mine is a double-nine rather than a double-six set, even though more than twice the work was involved. The additional work is because a double-six set has only 28 pieces and 168 pips, whereas a do...
I posted a few days ago the prototype design I came up with for a men’s valet station. These were to be prizes to be presented at an upcoming golf tournament in November. I asked you all for input and comments on the design and of course I can always count on you guys just for that. The feedback and suggestions were great and have allowed me to modify the design to make it even better. For those of you who have not seen my submission here is the prototype that I had you all comment o...

Paris toolbox (a Lumber Jerk in Paris)A simple tool box from recycle plywood Ok I admit I’m lucky! I found this old piece of plywood in the street.[Ohhh, yea, and also lucky to have had a patient French fiancé] And here we go home to the apartment (Martyn it’s your favorite hat…). First I cut the board in two, and mounted a pice of wood under to be able to fasten it to the new workbench.(Those of you who read my Wolfcraft 200 review, can scroll down a little). Then I painte...
In this episode I go over the installation of the drawer slides. It is very important to remember that the width of you drawer box is the key to a successful slide installation.
