    Howdy everyone, I've been a lurker for a while but decided to make an account when I was trying to figure out how to best create this shelf (a request from the wife, so saying "no" isn't an option :) ) My biggest curiosity is how to make the "V" without it being super flimsy. Granted, this...

    I'm building this floor to ceiling bookcase 3.5x2.4meters (sorry about the metrics scale guys, I'm Swedish) (This is just a sketch, not a blueprint. ignore the details, like how the red dividers popping up on the top shelf) I'm planning on: 1. Building the outer box first, and dadoing slots...

    So I'm new to making mortise and tenon joints and recently attempted my first one. I'm doing these for breadboard ends on table tops with 1 1/2" thick doug fir. I used my fixed base router with a 3/4" x 1/2" deep straight cut bit for the tenon and a 1/2" x 2 1/2" straight cut bit for the...

    I was asked by a friend to make him a wooden pool cue case. Anyone have any suggestions on the best way to attach the wood? Not looking for any outside marks and it needs to be really solid. Thanks for the help ahead of time. Patrick

  7. Design & Plans
    Hi, So I'm new to this, started building some transforming tables and really have hit a brick wall. First I'll describe the tables. 4 tables consisting of a 12"square center with 4 triangular leafs, making it a 17"square when all are opened. When the 4 are combined, a 34" square dining...

    I am currently making plans for a miniture golf set and the current idea is to make it customizable so the player can lay out each 4' square either to the side or in front of the previous piece. After the panels are laid out the user would then be able to place 2x4's to frame the edges that are...

    I enjoy building boxes to display pistols, jewelry, etc. To this point, the only joints I commonly use are rabbit, miter, dovetail, spline and drawer box. I read numerous post on TS vs router for cutting the joints. Looks like a tossup on the preferred equipment. My daughter is buying a...
