I want to build a drill press stand with lots of shallow drawers to hold drill bits, similar to the drawers at the Dandy Drawers site. Has anyone tried building drawers with the bottom extending out past the sides, so the bottom can be used as th...

I've been doing woodworking since I was a kid. My dad had lots of basic tools and I learned by watching him repair stuff and make things around the house. I always enjoy the planning and building process, but I really need to work at enjoying the sanding and finishing processes. I'm finding I'm not the only one in that regard.
When the Guitar Hero video game was at the height of its popularity, I sold lots of wood guitar stands for those on ebay under company name Measure Twice Products. You can see the video commercial I created here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCDPbAV9kfM . After making and selling a few hundred of those, the production style woodworking took all the fun out of it for me and I decided to take a long break.
When my father passed away in Jan '12, I inherited his tools and I'm once again enjoying building projects for fun. I feel a sense of responsibility to put his tools to good use by helping others like he always did. I hope to produce some great projects and entertaining videos that put smiles on people's faces and make my family proud.

I recently inherited my fathers tools and just moved his lathe to my workshop. My dilemma is that the lathe is about 6 feet long, and I really only want to make small things like pens, goblets, etc, so I don’t need such a long lathe. I wou...
