    Shop Ideas

    My 2-car garage doubles as my shop and it does on occasion have a car in it....gasp. Every now and then I bring a car in to change the oil, clean the interior, etc. So one key thing for me is having everything on wheels so when i need to i can roll everything to the sides and open up the...

    Dog Food Bowl Stand

    So with finishing my dining room table ( Cross half lap joint with a mortise and tenon ) last week the wife asked if I could make a stand to hold the dog's food and water bowl, I thought to myself I have a perfect design as the dog's food bowl sits near the dining room table. So I made a dog...

    Tip: Pegboard standoff spacers on the cheap.

    I am 100% not opposed to planing on the dining table but the wife may have comments :p

    Cross half lap joint with a mortise and tenon

    Maybe I am not reading this correctly, but I don't hand plane on my dining table, typically. Everything is together now and am feeling no racking when i push on either side so hopefully all is well. All goes well i should be able to get it painted this weekend and the top attached. :)

    Cross half lap joint with a mortise and tenon

    I did a trial run with the screws last night and after putting 2 screws in each end I was able to stand on the stretcher with no issues. I doubt my table top weighs as much as I do and it wouldn't be supported by the stretcher anyway. Tonight i will glue the stretcher in place, screw it in and...

    Cross half lap joint with a mortise and tenon

    So here is where i am, drilled two 3/4" holes with the forstner bit then drill through for the 1/4" lag screws. Going to screw the lag screws into the stretcher (after pre drilling) and then plug the hole with a 3/4" dowel, fill any voids with wood filler sand and get ready to paint white. PS...

    Cross half lap joint with a mortise and tenon

    I agree, I decided since I like the proportion of the stretcher and didn't want to make is smaller I would use long screws to attach it to the X's and then plug the hole with a dowel. Since its going to be painted anyway I can do any filling around the dowel I need to and make them disappear...

    Cross half lap joint with a mortise and tenon

    Since the base is ultimately going to be painted white anyway would I be better off cutting the stretcher to the dimension of the inside of the base and screwing it into place and then plugging the holes? Never had the patience to learn SketchUp, but for some reason AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit...
