    Closing up my garage shop

    Hi all. I was pretty active here around when the site was first turning into what it is today; I remember the discussions about membership and such. Especially around 11 or 12 years ago I was going on shop crawls, hosted my garage at one, brought my family to a big picnic meeting we had, and...

    Interior Door

    Hi guys. I have a formal living room that I have converted into a movie room - it has a 42" wide opening. My wife and I have wanted a custom door made for it for some time. I thought about doing it myself, but I don't feel I have the skill for it yet or the setup to do doors. My thought is...

    Hat rack / Umbrella stand (done w/ pics!)

    I finally finished my first interior furniture project. I've been working on this one for some time, and it took me a while to get to the point where I was willing to try something that I might actually put inside (as opposed to adirondack chairs, little outdoor tables, etc.). It's a combo...

    So, I have 4 legs made out of jatoba, and they are nice and flat and straight. They are ~1 3/4" thick, made of 2 pieces (about 1 3/4" x 7/8" each) glued together. I just realized that the sides are not square to each other. Does anyone have advice on the best way to fix this with hand tools...

    Router table safety

    Hi guys. I am pretty new to this stuff and still learning a lot of lessons. Today I was doing some flush trimming on my benchtop router table. I have some 1/4" ply templates and some cheap pine roughly cut to shape with a jigsaw. I've done this before, but haven't gotten the technique and...

    Hello everyone

    Hi there. I'm a new member and a new woodworker. About 6 months ago I needed to build a bench to do some reloading, and found I really enjoyed the experience. Since then I have made some outdoor furniture like tables and chairs and some shop furniture and cabinetry. I want to eventually...
