    Hi there! First-time poster, long time reader :) I'm working on a butcher block countertop island. When it is finished it will be 8ft by about 5ft. There is an 8"x16" post and a sink in the middle of the island. (I know that butcher block is not ideal for a sink placement, but our budget is...

    I've got a teeny tiny little shop and am in the early days of kitting it out. We've got a table saw, a mitre saw, an orbital sander, and some hand tools. I don't know that we're ever going to have room for a jointer, and while I'd love a benchtop planer we don't have that at the moment either...

    Greetings to all! My name is Alex, I want to show you my work. Working on wood is my hobby, so do not judge strictly, I am often not happy with the result of my work. Look at my gift to my sons. I did this work at the end of last year. What do you say? Have a nice day

    I'm making an octogon frame for an antique mirror, so it is heavy. I'm considering just using splines but like challenging joints and would like to try something new. What would you use?

    Hi All, I'm planning to build a round 'butcher block' style dining room table. It will be 5 feet in diameter, and just to make life interesting I plan to join the staves radially instead of the standard parallel assembly you see on counter-tops. I've attached a sketch of the assembly. The...

    Hello all I have received an antique rocking chair for repair. The owner of the chair has children that accidentally broke the of this chair while using it. She says that she used it as a child, her mother had it as a child and the grandmother before that. The grandmothers childhood was...

    Hey Guys, I'm having an issue with ridges forming along my joinery lines after I have completed a glued up table top. My boards are square edged and glued up flat with no filling. These ridges form between a month or 2 months after I have completely finished the project. So I end with a...

    This DIY dog feeding station plan can be a great way to spoil your dog. It's actually a fairly complex build for something as seemingly simple as a stand for a couple of dog bowls. On the other hand, this piece can be a great introduction for you to cabinetry-making...

    I am designing a bed frame with some Japanese style joinery and dovetails, I want to make the slats for the bed and connect them to the bed using dovetail T-Halving joints and I wonder whether that will support the weight of the bed and two people without a brace down the center. Picture for...

    I recently glued up a walnut, 3/4" thick table top roughly 5' x 32". I used Titebond III and biscuits to join the boards together. I finished it with ArmRSeal on all sides and everything turned out great. I have a metal pedestal base that I will be mounting the table top onto. The metal base...

    I'm making a replica restoration hardware balustrade coffee table for the wife. I've seen a number of DIY blogs that show the process, however I find most to take cheap shortcuts (like using all pocket screws to attach join the panels) which don't account for wood movement, etc. Here's an...

    Hi everyone, I'm about to build something like this (http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/joystyle-interior/item/common-120l-na/) per the wife's request. I'd typically do this with veneered plywood, but I have a lot of solid cherry in my shop that I'd like to use. My question to you all is this...

    Hello All, I thought I would take the opportunity to practice some joinery that I haven't tried before while building this band saw table. Okay, I confess, I've only ever jointed using nails and screws :crying2: I'd like to use a method of joinery that holds up to the expansion and...

    I'm just getting into woodworking and consider myself a novice. I would like to have the tools (not to mention the expertise) to create box, dado, and maybe a few other types of joints for boxes and drawers. To get my woodworking hobby of the ground, I bought a Dewalt 745 table saw. It's a great...

    I purchased a second hand china cabinet and I'm attempting to transform the top section with glass doors into a bookcase. I've attached feet and am staining a new wood panel to attach to the top. The current top is a crown moulding trim on the front and sides with an unfinished area behind that...

    Not that M&T joints are bad (I love them), they're just very time consuming even with a jig. For attaching a breadboard end to a table top for a typical 4 legged table with aprons I was thinking of an alternative and wanted to get everyone's opinion. What if I just attached the breadboard with...
