Sine Wave Box
If you have a new idea or just want to test out something build a box. I came up with this design for a sine wave pattern. The challenge was to create the sine wave cut with out a CNC machine. Box building is perfect for new ideas and your “I never done this before” test. Material for a box build is minimal and not that expensive. Plus you get a great looking box, if things work to your favor. Continue reading “Sine Wave Box”
Retractable Green Screen
I have had a green screen for a few years now. I never use it, because of light issues and didn’t have any where to hang it. I have fixed both those problems. The first was the lighting. I have added three 4′ lights to the shop that greatly improves the over all brightness. To fix the hanging of the green screen I have came up with a way the make it retract up to the ceiling. The screen is 5′ X 10′ and I get plenty of coverage. lets take a look at the design for the retractable Green Screen. Any and all links for materials will be below.

I know, i cant be the only one that gets tired of wrapping up the cords to the tools every time its in the way or when your ready to clean up for the day.

Drill Bit Storage Cabinet
I needed to get all my drill bits in one place. This cabinet is going to fit under the drill press and store all the drill bit in my shop. Including the Kiss Drill Bit System from FastCap. This can also be used for a bench top drill press stand. Add some wheels maybe go a bit higher with the cabinet this could be a good solution for those bench top drill presses.
Hickory box with Gorilla glue finish
I set out to accomplish two things with this build. One I wanted to try this new finish method I learned from “Ask This Old House” The showed a method of using Gorilla Glue for a finish and it turn out awesome. It looked easy enough so I wanted to do it. Second, I never build a box using grain matching techniques before. I wanted the grain to wrap around the box, also book match the lid panel. That was the whole plan behind this build.
Did you know I have started making plan? Although this is a new process for me I do offer several set of plans for some of my recent builds. I will be adding more and more plans to my inventory over the next several months. Most of the time I’ll be doing plan for the project I do a video on. From time to time I will be doing them on past projects that I’ve done to build up inventory and to catch my self up to date. Leave me a comment if there is a pass video you would like a set up plans for. Check back regularly for updates. Continue reading “Woodworking Plans”
Now that the miter station is pretty much done. I have room and a need for an assembly table. This is one of those projects that has been way over due. I have use the out feed table as an assembly table for years. This works, but you end up having to move a lot of stuff to make the next cut. A dedicated assembly table is the answer. Plans are available for this build.
