    I wanted to organize a closet. I saw a picture of an interlocking box design where the bottom of one box interlocks with the top of another box. I used 1/2" birch plywood, quality 1"x3" pine boards, 1/4" dowels, carpenter's glue, and right angle frame clamps to assemble the parts. I made a...

    Hello all! I'm a bit desperate for some advice, as I'm about to pounce on a miniatures project that's out of my ordinary. I'm a dollhouse person, and I'm at present looking to turn a baby cello into a wall-hanging miniature dollhouse. My conundrum is about hinges. I would like the cello case to...

    Hello, I have looked high and low online for this lid stay and would love to have your help. The guy in the video calls it a slide hinge but it also seems like it could be a lid stay which is what it is being used for. It has a thumb turn tension/friction adjustment. The goal is to have a lid...

    Dad wanted a dresser-top box for 'stuff' and sent me the specs. It's sort of a band saw box, sort of something else. The front middle and sides are palm wood, the interior is a mix of birch, walnut and plywood. The lid is made from the waste from the compartment underneath. Some over sanding...

    I am planning a bed/dresser combination w/ a bunch of birch plywood drawer boxes w/ 1" side lips and carved out front-scoops. I really want to use shellac, a finish I've never worked with before (I can hear the sighs from here!). I want shellac because its non-toxic, I can work with it inside w/...

    Hello, I'm trying to make a heart shaped box as a present. The dimensions are to be somewhere around 7" x 7" x 7". I figured that for the top and bottom faces I could just trace a heart on the wood and then use a jigsaw to cut out the shape. However, I'm a bit puzzled on how to make the sides...

    Hey guys, I'm currently producing a music video where the main focus of the video is a singer songwriter singing his song in a magicians box after the female assistant helps him in and closes it. I've thought of a few ways to build it (approximately) by having some sort of wooden frame and...
