Initially I thought a wine rack would be a finicky project to create, with the necessity of holding the bottles at a certain angle, etc. However, this ended up being a quick, easy and fun build. The shape of the bottles lets them rest on the rack at the correct angle (which is really only important when you are going to let your wine age). The simplicity of the design also allows you to see the labels on the bottles. 

In episode 10 of our series, Getting Started in Woodworking, we complete our first season with a demonstration on how to apply an oil-and-wax wood finish. This finishing recipe is extremely simple and very effective. It will work for about 95 percent of the projects most woodworkers build; the only exceptions are surfaces that need to take a lot of abuse, such as a dining table tabletop.

I few years ago I made a build plan for Remodelaholic for a super adorable House Frame Bed. The build plan was inspired by this darling room shared by an Australian magazine, Home Life.  Over the years a few requests have been made for a full size mattress version. Here it is --> How to Build a House Frame Bed - Full Size This bed is designed to fit a full mattress 53" x … [Read more...]
This wooden sofa side table can also be made in different sizes and shapes as you can find on the internet. Some of the items you will need for this project are wooden pieces, cutter, screws, etc. We have included a video tutorial here that illustrates the process of building a wooden sofa side table. This is not the exact one that you see in the image above, but it can be modified to build any shape or design you want. The video tutorial also has English subtitles to make it easy for anyone to understand and follow the steps.

Build your own furniture, a dream of many but a reality for few. In this video I show you how I make farm tables. This is one made for a customer for a new house. It's 10 feet long and made from red oak, sawn from a dead standing tree. The base is made from spruce and yellow pine. It is constructed with mortise and tenon joints, using a hollow chisel mortiser and a tenon jig I made for the table saw.
When you move to California, Sam Maloof and James Krenov will still be alive. You will delay plans to visit both of them, and they will die within a few months of one another and you will never get the chance to meet them in person. Go, go, go. Meet these rare gems of woodworkers while you can - and view all of your elder woodworkers this way. People don't live forever. This also applies to your grandparents.

If you are searching any gift for your loved one this decoration piece is the ideal one. You can decorate it on the wall and with its good look your lounge would look great. If you are giving a gift to your family members they would surely admire you and like this gift very much. This running deer is creating an outstanding impression on the people and they tend to have it on the wall of their lounge. It would fit best in the lobby too. I am sharing some of the pictures of this dear; just have a look at these pictures.
In my project section I wrote an article about small boxes made with a router. The article was written years ago and the boxes were made several years before that. Thus, I had to use one of those old boxes to write this article as I couldn't exactly remember how I made them. The initial construction process came from that great Canadian TV show, The Router Workshop, but the jig I use was born of necessity. One year I decided to build a pile of these boxes and enter a craft fair. After two or three, I decided there had to be a faster way to set up for the cuts, so I used a discarded table saw sled to fashion the jig in this article.
Block planes range in quality and price from hardware-store versions that cost around $35 to high-end brass planes that cost as much as $250. While the higher-priced models are likely to perform better out of the box and include higher-quality machining and parts, low-cost block planes can perform well if tuned up properly using the techniques detailed in this episode.

If you don’t have a large space for dining, you can check this plan. This design from Instructables is very basic to make and can easily fit in your small space. However, it has the capacity for six people to sit together at the table. The cost depends on the type of lumber you are using; construction grade pine wood might cost around $50, and if you are using furniture grade lumber, it might cost approximately $120.
There are different grades of tools available at different prices. Salesmen will probably tell you to get good quality tools that last a lifetime. But the price difference between a cheap tool and a good quality tool can easily be a factor of four. My advice is to get cheap tools first and use them until they break. Once they break, it's time to consider getting something better. But unless you are a professional who uses the tools every day, even a cheap tool is likely to last a long time.
A wooden cutting board can be used in the kitchen for cutting purposes. You can see one in the image above. This wooden cutting board can be built by using wooden pallets from your house. You need only a few items to build this beautiful wooden cutting board. I suggest you to make more than one as they can be used anywhere in the house for many purposes. You can easily make it at home and use it for cutting different things in the kitchen. In addition, it adds a nice visual appeal to your kitchen. Make sure to use only high quality items for any woodworking project.
*Please NOTE: While my table has held up well and had only a small amount of movement after 2 1/2 years, there are certainly things I would do differently with more experience under my belt. For beginners, I'd recommend using biscuits and glue for the top planks. Dowels or floating tenons/dominos are another option. Do make sure to let the wood properly dry.
Making a garden arched footbridge out of some wood boards can be fun, hard working plan and also it’s quite rewarding. We are providing the project tutorial for how to build an arched footbridge without rails or having rails. If you take your hands of work and have some basic woodworking skills you can easily build this type of bridge. While this garden bridge is too small to walk over but it can make a really stunning addition to your lush yard or garden.
It was murderously hot here in the Charm City suburbs last weekend. The heat index topped a full 115 degrees on Saturday. But fear not, the heat didn’t deter us from tackling our long-awaited shed storage shelves project. We’re excited about this project because we’ve been looking forward to sharing a plywood shelving article for some time now, and this article gives us the perfect avenue for that. In case you’ve forgotten (or more likely if you’ve just started reading here), here’s the new shed. It looks great on the outside, but without some shelving and storage hooks for tools inside, most of the interior space would go to waste.
