Post a pic... Anything is ok.

Here's mine... Fine woodworking it ain't but doing a favor for a friend. It's going to be a little free lending library when done.

and after meeting with ChrisC yesterday, I received this lovely batch of saw blades. After I work through cleaning these and workout the particulars I foresee the potential for some frame saw workshops. i find this to be really exciting!

Finally finishing house to sell.

Porch ceiling after raising the original roof, rebuilding the walls and installing the windows. Ignore the hanging lights—I was checking to make sure electrical worked before
Richard I love those handles. That's my favorite pattern to make. Well done

I really wanted to build my own cabinets like the refrigerator wall, but it’s time to sell the old house since we moved into the new and I learned my current job ends in two weeks.

And painting original upstairs doors instead of building new. I did build new for the first floor though! Ceiling is finished now, the photo shows where I ran out of primer.

I still have to finish the trim, the hand rail (after pricing decided to make my own for a 14’ piece of hickory), and paint. Looking forward to getting back to woodworking, but I also have to build a shop at the new house.

Well I will explain more in a separate post - but I am making a 'location specific' table, using reclaimed church pew pieces. This is for the church that the pews came from.

Pic 2 - panel to be incorporated
Pic 3 - panel in un-stained table base
Pic 4 - Panels in stained table base
Pic 5 - Router template for the curve in the table top

I'm in the minor leagues compared to most of you guys. One small reason is because my workbench/assembly table/outfeed table has consisted of a piece of OSB on top of sawhorses for many years. It's made me not want to go out to the garage to make things because half my time is spent setting up and taking down instead of actually woodworking. Now that I'm retired I intend to change that.

I drew up this design which is a hybrid of the Ron Paulk work station and Dennis's workbench from Hooked on Wood on YT.
1634405880236.png


The top has two lateral boards and one longitudinal board internally for strengthening. It divides the table into six 18"x20" compartments for easy access to tools you want to keep handy but don't want cluttering up the table top. Overall, it's 60"x36", which is about all that will fit into my one-bay "workshop."

It'll have a shelf on the bottom and eventually 3 or 4 drawers off to one side plus cubbies for systainers.

Here is the dry fit.
1634406384630.jpeg

The frame is made up mostly of oak and some mystery wood (looks like poplar, but heavier and harder like soft maple) and joined with dominoes. The top will be made up entirely of Valchromat and will be able to be unbolted from the frame.

This is Dennis's bench. The top is essentially a torsion box which seems to waste space.

My side apron won't go down as far as that. I'm thinking three rows of dog holes and one T-track.

Just finished up a worship aid holder that goes between presider's and altar server's chair. Oak from old pews in previous church.
Also just built a new outfeed table that incorporates a lift for the chop saw (one of those kitchen appliance lifts - will support 80 lbs) and a built in router table. I have a relatively small shop, so need to use every inch efficiently. The top will be done tomorrow.

Cool idea!

Wow 6 or so posts in this thread, and 2 are about re-purposing church pews! Mine are maple (I think).
Who-da thunk?

LOML wants a table in the laundry for folding clothes, etc. I made a trip to Gibsonville a while back and came home with some nice 5/4 spalted maple, which she quickly claimed. Sigh... The original plan was for a base cabinet, but fast forward through some rethinking of storage needs, and we ended up with a base like you see in the first pic. It's a basic frame in the corner using batter boards for the back and one end. I'll attach the one "wild" leg to the floor for stability, and the others to the walls. The base is SYP to match the rest of the trim in the laundry. Yep... the maple may look out of place, but, happy wife... happy life. The top is sitting in the shop ready for final finish, GF High Performance Satin Poly. I hope to get everything complete by next weekend. I've taken the opportunity to try some new techniques in construction and finish. So far, so good.

Started building the kitchen cabinets, vanities, and laundry room cabinets for our new house this week. Took a break yesterday from large things and knocked out some hickory wall plates for the island.

Agree that is some pretty wood - but I think it is ambrosia maple, not spalted.
This year I’m making some kumiko lamps formChristmas presents. These are the panels.
oooo, I hope we get to hear more details eventually! Looks fascinating.

No pics yet, but I am working on a simple project, a couple of blanket ladders for a new mom in our family. One will be white oak, cherry for the other

Agree. It is Ambrosia, but there is some spalting as well. It was also marked as such by the folks at the Hardwood Store. Hard to tell from the pic.
