    New storage building

    Hello all; My "woodworking shop" is now 12' x 25' or so, which is half of my garage that I partitioned off some 14 years ago. It works well, but I have ran out of room, and feel like I'm trying to work in a shoebox at times. I've decided I need a storage building to move some items into, and...

    Building a table of sorts, need a bit of advice

    This isn't exactly for the wood shop, but it may wind up in it. I'm looking to build a reloading table. It might as well be a work bench because what I envision will basically be one. I'd like to have a place to store my ammo cans (military style) so it will have to have storage for heavy stuff...

    Part 13 - Building the Bench

    Hi all, Seeing as the shortest day of the year is approaching, I thought we’d end the year with the shortest post of the Harpsichord Project (please ..... hold your applause). Eventually this pile of sticks may actually make a sound. Whenever that day comes, the player will surely...

    Harpsichord Project Part 9 - Building the Registers

    Advice on building air dried kiln for pine

    IN the not too far future I am planning on building an air drying station to dry out some yellow pine boards that will have been freshly milled. Would an air dried kiln or solar kiln work better? If the air dried method is ok, does anyone have any suggestions in regards to the amount of...

    Building a cyclone

    I finally uploaded my early, pre-NCWW, DC and cyclone building pics into an album (Homemade Cyclone). Actually, the pics show it can be done. If you really want to build one look at the Plans and Construction sections of Bill Pentz's website. I haven't order-sorted the pics yet.

    Out building

    I am in serious need of a shed or some type of out-building for my lawn and garden equipment and for storage space. I am leaning towards building it myself (when/if the money becomes available). If I do build it, is there a particular size that makes the best use of 4x8 plywood sheets? 16x16...

    Fliptop cabinet part 1 Fliptop cabinet part 2 Making the platform parts Surprisingly, building the platform is the easy part in this project. Trim the platform shelves by 1/8” down to 20 7/8”. This will give you 1/16” of clearance on either side, enough for the washers that will be used as...
