These planter boxes are made from Douglas Fir and are 12 inches tall, 24 inches wide. The longer one is 4 feet in length and the other is 3 feet in length.
The four earring case is made from purpleheart and maple. Dimensions are 4 1/4 inches wide, 2 1/2 inches tall and 2 inches deep.
The miter spline jig holds boxes and the like in place while cutting the slot for later insertion of the spline. miters joints are notoriously weak joints and a spline will greatly enhance its strength.
This jig was presented on King’s Fine Woodworking as a video and I bought the plans from their website.
Space in my garage is at a premium so I built this flip-top cart to hold my bench top planer and the combination belt and spindle sander. Actually, there’s a law that says you must have a flip top cart in your workspace if your shop is a garage. I rarely need to use these at the same time so I chose these two to utilize the same cart. The cart has 3 inch locking casters making the unit move around easily and can quickly move back out of the way when not in use.
Each unit is plugged into a multi-outlet power strip inside the cart top and one male plug routes out the side. The top comes apart so if I need to get to something inside it’s possible to do so by removing about 10 two-inch screws. Hopefully that will be far and few between.
This design was posted on Fishers Shop and I used his design. There are many examples of flip-carts out there and I like this one the best of those that I watched.
i will probably edge-band some the raw plywood edges and give everything a final sanding and several coats of lacquer or poly-urethane to protect the wood. It’s ready to use, let’s make something.
I was able to make this 9″ X 9″ trivet from leftover cut-offs of the cutting board that I made late last year. Feels good to use as much as possible the wood you buy. Even if it’s only remnants from other projects.
The woods used are, purple heart, walnut, maple, and mahogany.
