New project in the works. Care to guess what it is?

I'll give you guys a couple clues.

1. It's for shop use.

2. It's made of wood. 😃

3. I'm overbuilding this like anything else I build.

Have fun guessing!

That's easy. It's going to be an overbuilt wooden shop utilitarian gadget.

Nope. But there will be another one of them in a few days (hopefully!).

or possibly designer firewood.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Bill is getting close with guess number 1, but not quite (although there was some firewood created during the test fitting process...). It's not for my forstener bits either.

Paul, I had mine done right about the time you started yours. I'm not making another one anytime soon either. Short of my biscuit router, I'm pretty well set now for tool storage, unless I go on a buying spree again!

Nope. Keep guessing. I'll post pictures (hopefully completed pictures...) at 2200 my time zone.

I wish I were completely done ( ran into a couple snags with the hardware...), but here it is:

That's really neat. I am just getting into dowels, just bought my first self centering jig, http://www.woodcraft.com/product/200...eling-jig.aspx and a 1/4" drill bit and dowel centers. You have a pretty nice selection of dowel jigs there. I was looking at that rotating one today at lowes. I might have to steal your idea if I really get into using dowels.

Thanks for your help

My best guess is a storage box for your doweling jigs and things.

What do I win?

You're a little late. But, I suppose I could send you some sawdust. Or a couple 3/4" plywood scraps!


Oddly, I only bought one package with the drill bit and dowels, and the jig in the center. All the rest was inherited. Some of the little pointed caps I have aren't even in it yet. I'm going to put some blocks to stabilize the jigs, kinda like form fitting them to the box. Of course, I still need to figure out where I'm going to put the box now that it's all (mostly) together.

Now you're gonna have to buy a fork lift to move your doweling equipment into position.
