At Cottage Home, we know purchasing custom furniture and décor on the Internet can raise some concerns and questions. Our business is dedicated to pioneering a new process for providing high-quality made-to-order furniture on the Internet. We strive to make it as easy as possible for our customers to have access to custom bench-built products for their homes.
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.
This is really easy and simple project. The person who is entry level in wood working can easily do this by following some steps. You can use this as a decoration piece in your home.The main thing is that you need a full command for using wooden tools and machine.It depends on your taste that what style you are presenting in making alphabets. Visit this link if you want to make this project by yourself. In this link you can see how to make alphabet signs.

I recently came across this beautiful wooden hanging swing, which was made in the square shape. The very first look was enough for me to start loving it. Although I haven’t yet tried building one myself, I am definitely going to. You can also make one for elders and put it in your garden or terrace or anywhere in the house. Elders can use it to relax and the kids can use it to play or sleep. Although this is a really beautiful piece of woodwork, it is not that easy to make. Only someone with good woodworking skill can think of making this swing set.


All of our tables are available in the color and finish of your choice.  Our existing color pallet includes 90 paint colors,  multiple stain color options in each workshop collection and several wax color options for our reclaimed woods.  Please feel free to explore all of our paint and stain options to help guide your design plans.  All of paint and stain finishes include a durable water based clear top coat.  This makes it easier to keep the table top clean with a damp sponge (no chemicals!) and provides protection from water rings.

Have you ever seen wooden slippers? These are the slippers which you can gift someone and they are very comfortable. You can make them very easily. While giving the gift you always want something unique. These are the unique slippers and you can wear these slippers in your home too. You can use them as a decoration piece and while going into the lawn you can have them. Have a look at the pictures which I am sharing with you, I hope you would like these pictures.
Build this handy stool in one hour and park it in your closet. You can also use it as a step to reach the high shelf. All you need is a 4 x 4-ft. sheet of 3/4-in. plywood, wood glue and a handful of 8d finish nails. Cut the plywood pieces according to the illustration. Spread wood glue on the joints, then nail them together with 8d finish nails. First nail through the sides into the back. Then nail through the top into the sides and back. Finally, mark the location of the two shelves and nail through the sides into the shelves. Don’t have floor space to spare? Build these super simple wall-mounted shoe organizers instead!
No doubt many of us would love to have a huge, 2000 square foot building devoted to woodcraft, on a wooded acreage somewhere. But there is a reality that goes with a hobby shared by numerous ordinary people: very few really have the means to set up such palatial workshops. We have our lives to lead, and engaging in such a venture is out of the reach for most, myself included. This article is dedicated to workshops for "the rest of us."
Drill four 5/8-in.-dia. 1/2-in.-deep holes on the large disc?inside the traced circle?then use 5/8-in. dowel centers to transfer the hole locations to the underside of the small disc. Drill four 1/2-in.-deep holes on the underside of the small disc and a 1/2-in.-deep hole in the center of the top for the dowel handle. Glue in the dowels to join the discs, and glue in the handle. We drilled a wood ball for a handle knob, but a screw-on ceramic knob also provides a comfortable, attractive grip.
This table is a little narrower than I would have liked for it's length (34x72), but it's perfectly sized for the space we are using it in.  At 72" long, I would have preferred something closer to 40" wide but this works for us.  The top is made from 16" wide soffet boards from a house I helped tear down when I was 10 yrs old (no, it wasn't the house we were living in).  The old boards have been in the barn for 40 years and needed to be used.  The center painted board is also from the same house.  

Cut the 6-1/2-in. x 3-in. lid from the leftover board, and slice the remaining piece into 1/4-in.-thick pieces for the sides and end of the box. Glue them around the plywood floor. Cut a rabbet on three sides of the lid so it fits snugly on the box and drill a 5/8-in. hole for a finger pull. Then just add a finish and you’ve got a beautiful, useful gift. If you don’t have time to make a gift this year, consider offering to do something for the person. You could offer to sharpen their knives! Here’s how.


How beautiful!!!! Your dining room looks so warm and inviting, the table is gorgeous! And I LOVE how you all signed it, it’s sweet little things like that that make a house a home! Thanks so much for the tutorial, we’ve been thinking about building a dining table too, I ant wait to show my husband your awesome tutorial! Hope there are lots of fun times and delicious meals in your dining room’s future 🙂

We have a small dining room area in our farmhouse that is separate from the living room and kitchen. The area is much smaller in space than our last house. I was little confused that our typical rectangular farmhouse table was not going to cut it. So, I walked in I came to know that we needed to build a round dining table. So, I searched for a plan design idea and build a very own round farmhouse dining table. I was an amazing DIY plan, I just love it!


Another classic game! (Are you picking up on a trend?). A cribbage board is really just a piece of wood with 240-plus holes drilled in it. This project includes files necessary to program a CNC machine to drill all the holes, but it also includes a template for boring the holes with a drill. There are endless opportunities for customizing this project with different species of wood. All this adds up to the fact that cribbage boards make great gifts. 

This woodshop photo is the outdoor Florida woodshop of Woodworking Guide Chris Baylor. This woodshop photo shows a portable miter saw stand, temporary shop table consisting of a pair of sawhorses with plywood as a table top, a contractor table saw and band saw on portable bases, and an Adirondack loveseat glider rocker that is a current woodworking project in progress.
For the legs, we purchased black steel gas pipes which had to be measured and cut to size.  After the steel pipes were cut they had to be manually threaded with a pipe threader.  Gas fittings were used to connect the piping. This step resulted in a few choice bad words, it seems you can actually get them already threaded. But why should we take the easy route, when we can make ourselves crazy instead.
Easygoing style Kitchen Farm Table Cultivate tables, otherwise called reap tables, once utilized as durable work surfaces for agriculturists. Today, their straightforward wooden plan settles on them magnificent decisions for the lounge area and kitchen. In the principal room, a provincial ranch table replaces a focal island in the kitchen, giving a spot to easygoing suppers.
I love this barnwood reclaimed table-your husband did a beautiful job! We have a coffee table and two end tables (hand-me-downs) that remind me a little of this table. They each have metal legs that have criss-cross metal bars that make shelves below, and are great for holding baskets. The tops of each were pretty rough when we inherited the tables, and lately I’ve been thinking about either sanding and then white-washing the wood, and now after seeing your pictures I’m thinking more about just sanding the tops and see how they look and maybe finishing them like you did your table!? (I think I like your idea better! How many coats of Varathane did you folks use?) Thank you so much for sharing!
Hardware stores are full of big compound sliding miter saws. But before you buy one, ask yourself, how often do you need to cut miters on stock wider than a non sliding miter saw can handle? For the few times you have to do that, it's probably better to use a circular saw. The complicated mechanism of a compound sliding miter saw makes them bulky and less rigid. Which means an expensive compound miter saw may not make as clean a cut as you can with a table saw sled.
These attractive gifts look like mini treasure chests. Here are the free woodworking plans, and assembly instructions to make these nice looking wooden boxes (Children's Mini Desktop Treasure Chest) from scratch.

This tutorial shows the making of stylish wooden wall hangings which is one of the easiest ways by using basic tools like wood cutters, hammer, drill and measuring tape. I made it at home for my creativity in easy steps. You can also make by cutting, assembling, add mesh and plastic, then attach to boundary and fill with your favorite light to flowers.
Fancy miter gauges sure look nice, with all the coloured bits of anodized aluminium and brass knobs. But are those really something you need? Do you really think that an Incra brand miter gauge made out of bent sheet metal is more trustworthy than the more solid cast aluminium one that came with your saw? Sorry, but those are some of my pet peeves. Build yourself a good table saw sled instead, and you won't need to second guess it. If you cut a lot of 45-degree miters, make another sled with a 45 degree angle.
Nothing could be easier to accomplish than these rustic, personalized wood slice tree ornaments. After slicing a log into discs, screw in an eye hook, and thread with some jute twine for a hanger.

The idea of homestead to-table is being embraced by eateries, as well as being ingrained in more youthful eras. Homestead to-class or ranch to-cafeteria developments are becoming across the country. This backings little to-medium size neighborhood cultivates by giving them consistent business, and consequently, understudies get sound privately developed sustenance. Many schools likewise offer sustenance training that means to show kids where nourishment originates from and to be sound eaters.
This part is optional, but I like the little detail it adds.  I used a table saw to cut a line down the trimmed down 2×6.  I cut it about 1″ from the bottom.  I adjusted my table saw blade about 1/4″ high and ran it through, then adjusted slightly and ran it through again so that the groove was cut about 2 blade widths thick (slightly under 1/4″).  You could do this with a router instead if you wanted.

There was one crack which required stabilization to prevent further splitting.  On an old piece of wood there is nothing more beautiful than a contrasting butterfly inlay to lock the pieces together.  Alternatively you could glue and clamp the split, however it is hard to get enough glue into the crack and an inlay looks much better.  I used a piece of bloodwood and an inlay jig on my router for the butterfly.  This was the first time I've tried inlay and it was very easy.  While the butterfly is beautiful & interesting, it acts functionally as 2 opposing wedges to prevent the crack from widening.  The last pic shows the finished product.
I used a #00 Steel Wool and White Vinegar solution to patina the wood and give it an aged look. Put a good handful of steel wool in a jar and add white vinegar. Let the vinegar dilute the steel wool for at least 3 to 4 days. The mixture will get darker the longer you let it sit. I let mine sit for a full week. Once diluted, simply brush the mixture on your piece. Oxidation will occur as the mixture reacts with the tannins in the wood to give it variations in color. It changed the Fir wood to dark blues, greys, browns, and black. Do not use white Pine because it will not darken much at all. If you'd rather use a stain, Minwax has some great choices to choose from. A couple of my favorites are Special Walnut, Dark Walnut, Provincial, Weathered Grey, and Golden Oak.

All of our tables are available in the color and finish of your choice.  Our existing color pallet includes 90 paint colors,  multiple stain color options in each workshop collection and several wax color options for our reclaimed woods.  Please feel free to explore all of our paint and stain options to help guide your design plans.  All of paint and stain finishes include a durable water based clear top coat.  This makes it easier to keep the table top clean with a damp sponge (no chemicals!) and provides protection from water rings.

The free woodworking plans are sometimes very straightforward and easy, and sometimes only for someone with a high level of woodworking artistry. When you find something you'd like to build, print out the free project and instructions while they are still available. Make a point of checking the material lists before buying your building materials for accuracy.
*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.

Having swing in your own home, yard or garden can be so de-stressing and be relaxing a thing to enjoy, that doesn’t matter you have a big yard or patio, or vacant porch. Kids will surely fall in love with this swing porch and love playing on a breezy day. Even, adults also do relax and enjoy a quite morning coffee, or just being embraced by the sun in the swing.
There's no better way to give thanks than to gather family and friends around an enormous table to share a feast. A farmhouse table would be the perfect spot. You could make one out of construction lumber and ordinary hardware in a couple of days. We're not talking precision woodworking here. If you can handle a circular saw and a chisel, you can do this. Farmers used to build these tables themselves, not furniture makers or carpenters, so it's okay if it turns out a bit rustic. That's half the fun. The other half is sitting down to eat at a table you built yourself.

If you have a small space in your kitchen or living space but require a table for dining or if you are fascinated with roundtable designs, you can consider this free DIY plan form Lane Home Co. to be a great option. Not only this table looks nice but also it is very sturdy with layered centered cross base in a V-shape. You might feel the table is difficult to make, but if you have the right tools and carefully follow the instructions, you will be able to accomplish the task easily.
Use: With water-based wood stain, cleanup is easy and you will not have to contend with noxious odors. Minwax Water Based Wood Stain, American Walnut or Dark Mahogany, deepens the color of the wood and gives it the look of a century-old table. It is essential to begin with a wood pre-conditioner, as this helps the stain absorb more evenly, avoiding a blotchy look.
Here is a look at the completed table prior to staining and sealing the piece. I also created matching benches to fit this table. The plans can be found by clicking here. I modified the width so they are a total of 69″ wide. Instead of using a 2×10 for the breadboards I use 2×8's. Everything else was kept the same as Ana's plans. The inside span of my table where the benches fit in is 73″ so that left 2 inches of wiggle room on each side of the bench so it can easily slide in and out.
It might not be the easiest project in this list, but if you already have some experience with wood cutting and joinery, it won’t be any hassle at all. Thanks to the extremely detailed instructions it shouldn’t really be a problem even if you’re not very familiar with woodworking. This could actually be a great project for refining your woodworking skills as a beginner!
Per usual, I used pocket screws to fasten the table top together after applying glue to the edges.  Pic 3 shows the underside of the table.  A straight edge clamp and a circular saw were used to trim the ends of the top.  The blue masking tape helps limit splintering from the saw.  To see if the table was square, I compared the diagonal measurements across the table top.  Diagonal measurements on a square or rectangle should be equal if the piece is square on all corners.  It's not very critical on a rustic, distressed table since the table's charm comes from it's imperfections.

If you are looking to make a large table for dining or celebrating ceremonies with many guests, the J-pedestal dining table can be a great choice. The design was inspired by a Pottery Barn. This gorgeous table adds class to your space which your guests will also praise. Though the materials can be purchased at affordable prices (costing around $125), you need to have good carpentry skills to make it and also the process is time-consuming. Southern Yellow Pine is recommended to use for the top because not only it is inexpensive but also it is strong and durable.


9. Support the spindle with one hand as you cut icicle shapes. First turn a tenon at the tailstock end to fit the lower hole in the ball. Undercut the tenon’s shoulders so the icicle fits tight on the rounded bottom of the ball (Fig.A).Then turn the larger diameter cove, beads and fillets. Move downhill towards the headstock to cut the smallest diameters last. Apply a finish.
Chances are in any woodworking project, you’re going to have to connect two pieces of material. Screws are ideal for this – much better than nails – but there are hundreds of different types and sizes, all for different applications. We will review the most common types and applications so that you can quickly determine what type you will need for your project and how to use it.
Hey I love this article,Thanks. 4 months ago, I started looking for woodworking. The industry is extremely interesting but I have problems with how I can do it.My uncle who has been doing more than me in this industry, has suggested to me to follow Teds plans, Do you think it’s a good move to follow these plans? ? I keep reading good reviews about Teds Plans but I am unsure if it will still work on me.At this time I can purchase these plans at a very low price,so if possible can you leave me feedback on wether I should do it or not. It would mean a lot coming from an expert in this field.
Often when working with wood, after cutting it up and drilling holes the surface will be unfinished with unsightly burs and splinters. This is a simple fix with a quick sanding, but with a seemingly endless amount of types and grits of sandpaper and sanding equipment this can get confusing. The main types of sanders we’ll cover are belt sanders, orbit sanders, and hand sanders.
This farmhouse table can actually be built with a budget of $65. It is one of the most beautiful furniture you can make which you are sure to love in your kitchen or living space and is extremely sturdy with all the supports. You can boast of this great design if you are celebrating parties with a lot of guests. Just follow the instructions carefully and tools required to make this table.

This is another basic farmhouse table design which you can easily build. However, the table is large with a seating capacity of at least ten people. This table is also a great addition to be in your home as it serves many purposes including storage apart from dining. The instructions are provided in two separate parts; first part includes the construction process and the second part includes the finishing touches.

Actually, you're going to have the opposite problem because you'll meet people who DO cheap out on tools and find they don't work all that well, wear down quickly, and don't last that long. You will want the best of best but not be able to afford them all the time. You will find, more often than not, that some very good tools are available in the mid-priced ranges: not the least expensive but not the most, either. For example, these two sets of chisels are not terribly expensive but well made and a great quality for the price: Marples and the beginner's set I got from Woodcraft that's Made in the USA. You can ask for the nicer ones for Christmas when people ask for ideas. It's good to think of tools as things that you buy once, where possible, but there are some deals to be had.
This may be my longest post to date. But also the largest project, and I have to admit that the work itself was done by my husband and I was merely his helper.  We decided to build a farm table using reclaimed barn wood from scratch. Our first stop was to an awesome secret spot, secret because I’ve been forbidden from sharing its location, to pick out the wood. It’s really no secret, its located in New Jersey. Go ahead and google, it’s easy to find *wink* This place had a huge selection of slabs, doors, and everything wood.  Most of the wood comes from salvaged barns in Ohio!

Drill four 5/8-in.-dia. 1/2-in.-deep holes on the large disc?inside the traced circle?then use 5/8-in. dowel centers to transfer the hole locations to the underside of the small disc. Drill four 1/2-in.-deep holes on the underside of the small disc and a 1/2-in.-deep hole in the center of the top for the dowel handle. Glue in the dowels to join the discs, and glue in the handle. We drilled a wood ball for a handle knob, but a screw-on ceramic knob also provides a comfortable, attractive grip.

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.

You can modify this table to be trendy or rustic as you prefer and as this design is simple, it is very easy to make. The table is large with the top measuring 51 3/4″ in width and 8’5″ in length. Also, the table is taller than a standard farmhouse table measuring 31″ from the ground.

The shop you see in the layout is my current setup and has evolved over many years to accommodate most importantly the acquisition of newer equipment but also better work flow. It is a free standing two story traditional barn style with office and storage space on the second level. Lumber and supplies are moved in and out of the shop through the front overhead door. To the left of the door are the lumber and plywood storage racks. Across from the lumber rack and to the right of the overhead door is the radial arm saw, miter saw and mortise utilizing a single fence system for all operations. Below and above these are cabinets and storage for misc. power hand tools.

I used a #00 Steel Wool and White Vinegar solution to patina the wood and give it an aged look. Put a good handful of steel wool in a jar and add white vinegar. Let the vinegar dilute the steel wool for at least 3 to 4 days. The mixture will get darker the longer you let it sit. I let mine sit for a full week. Once diluted, simply brush the mixture on your piece. Oxidation will occur as the mixture reacts with the tannins in the wood to give it variations in color. It changed the Fir wood to dark blues, greys, browns, and black. Do not use white Pine because it will not darken much at all. If you'd rather use a stain, Minwax has some great choices to choose from. A couple of my favorites are Special Walnut, Dark Walnut, Provincial, Weathered Grey, and Golden Oak.
I love this barnwood reclaimed table-your husband did a beautiful job! We have a coffee table and two end tables (hand-me-downs) that remind me a little of this table. They each have metal legs that have criss-cross metal bars that make shelves below, and are great for holding baskets. The tops of each were pretty rough when we inherited the tables, and lately I’ve been thinking about either sanding and then white-washing the wood, and now after seeing your pictures I’m thinking more about just sanding the tops and see how they look and maybe finishing them like you did your table!? (I think I like your idea better! How many coats of Varathane did you folks use?) Thank you so much for sharing!
I keep looking for a printable version of both your table and benches. I can’t seem to find them. I am hoping that you can email them to me – I want my brother-in-law to help me make the table and benches. If you don’t have the plans do you recommend I just copy and paste your information off into word or something. Thanks so much for your help – this is exactly what I have been looking for!
We will suggest you select the simple Birdhouse if you are new at woodworking but be sure to select its design with respect to the place where you are going to hang/place it. One of our simple Birdhouse tutorials will help you building one. We have managed to include a source tutorial below that will help you to understand illustrates and the instruction to building a simple Birdhouse.
To finish the table, I first sanded then added a little bit of distressing. Okay… A LOT of distressing. This step was probably the boys’ favorite, because I handed them each a large rock and let them go to town banging the heck out of the table. I wanted the table to look like it’s been around for generations, and all the little nicks and dings add SO much character to the wood.
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.

No doubt many of us would love to have a huge, 2000 square foot building devoted to woodcraft, on a wooded acreage somewhere. But there is a reality that goes with a hobby shared by numerous ordinary people: very few really have the means to set up such palatial workshops. We have our lives to lead, and engaging in such a venture is out of the reach for most, myself included. This article is dedicated to workshops for "the rest of us."

Cut the 6-1/2-in. x 3-in. lid from the leftover board, and slice the remaining piece into 1/4-in.-thick pieces for the sides and end of the box. Glue them around the plywood floor. Cut a rabbet on three sides of the lid so it fits snugly on the box and drill a 5/8-in. hole for a finger pull. Then just add a finish and you’ve got a beautiful, useful gift. If you don’t have time to make a gift this year, consider offering to do something for the person. You could offer to sharpen their knives! Here’s how.


This woodshop photo is the outdoor Florida woodshop of Woodworking Guide Chris Baylor. This woodshop photo shows a portable miter saw stand, temporary shop table consisting of a pair of sawhorses with plywood as a table top, a contractor table saw and band saw on portable bases, and an Adirondack loveseat glider rocker that is a current woodworking project in progress.
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.
This rustic farmhouse table comes with an extension leaf making it extremely functional. When required, you can extend the two end pieces to add extension leaves for additional space on the table and when not in use, simply slide it in. It will cost you around $230-$300 based on the materials which you already have. Though it requires some carpentry skills to get the job done, you can also do it with attention to the detailed instructions provided if you are new to woodworking.
A few days back, I was searching for some cool DIY plans. So, I got to work and ended up coming up with some easy to follow project and an awesome new ice chest cooler to have out on the deck! It was going to be perfect for summer hangouts and barbecues. It was a fun and practical plan to work on and I know you will have fun tackling select a design from this plan and start building your own. Enjoy learning how you can build a rustic cooler also sing the video tutorial and source tutorial plan!
Don't believe the mainstream thinking that hand tools are irrelevant, too slow to be useful, or less effective than power tools. Ignore, or at least take with a grain of salt, the power tool devotees who will say "There's a reason they invented power tools, ya know!" Your "shop" is a bench attached to the inside of a coat-closet door in a one-room studio apartment right now. Power tools are going to bother that nice med student next door, and that closet shop doesn't have any ventilation for the amount of dust you'll produce. Hand tools can be more efficient (in speed, quick access, storage, and lack of set up), they're quieter, and the pleasure of silence afforded by quiet hand tools--just a few soft noises produced by your tools--is a pleasure not to be overlooked. They're portable and will move with you, you'll learn more about how different types of wood behave, and, when you run into one of those power tool zealots, just go over to Todd's house and watch a few episodes of The Woodwright's Shop to get your respect for hand tools back in check.
Getting started in woodworking can seem like a daunting task. From specialty woodworking tools to identifying and understanding the different types of wood, there is so much to know that even the old-timers are still developing. But learning and experimenting are what woodworking is all about. Get started on the right foot with some essential basics about safety, tools, lumber, and traditional layout and measuring techniques.
This is another simple table design provided by HGTV which you can make without prior woodworking experience. Though simple, it is gorgeous where you can add decorative chairs to make the look of the set even more attractive. Even if you are an expert in carpentry but want to bring that rustic appeal of a farmhouse table, consider this DIY plan. Solid pine wood is recommended because it adds more character to the looks of this farmhouse table. It measures 96 inches in length, 38 inches in width and 30 inches from the floor.
Hey I love this article,Thanks. 4 months ago, I started looking for woodworking. The industry is extremely interesting but I have problems with how I can do it.My uncle who has been doing more than me in this industry, has suggested to me to follow Teds plans, Do you think it’s a good move to follow these plans? ? I keep reading good reviews about Teds Plans but I am unsure if it will still work on me.At this time I can purchase these plans at a very low price,so if possible can you leave me feedback on wether I should do it or not. It would mean a lot coming from an expert in this field.

Fancy miter gauges sure look nice, with all the coloured bits of anodized aluminium and brass knobs. But are those really something you need? Do you really think that an Incra brand miter gauge made out of bent sheet metal is more trustworthy than the more solid cast aluminium one that came with your saw? Sorry, but those are some of my pet peeves. Build yourself a good table saw sled instead, and you won't need to second guess it. If you cut a lot of 45-degree miters, make another sled with a 45 degree angle.

It's nice to be on your site getting plans and building projects.  I was so inspired by you I went out and bought Ryobi tools, and have since built 3 projects all on http://www.Ana-White.com/ by you.  I loved building the Potting Table, and better yet my Mother loved it when I gave it to her as a gift.  I am now working on the Farm House style Table and Benches.  I can't wait to see how they turn out!  
I think you can see from all of these choices, the best solution is the one that works for YOU and your home. Just make sure you create an environment that makes you feel creative and excited to work. And while there are amazing workshops online for inspiration, don’t go crazy thinking your work area needs to be a renovation in and of itself! Use bits and pieces of inspiration, then get going on your projects!
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.
