Bringing this back to the top. My buddies inlaws decided to back into their porch last weekend, breaking part of the railing in half. So new 2x4 runners with a custom routed edge(part table saw/part router) and dadoes on the underside of the top rail to flush hide the top of the posts. I was able to reuse all of the posts thankfully which kept my cost down. It's all sanded and ready to be installed and then paint. Fun little profitable project

It may be garbage but the reviews seemed good. I went by Lowe's yesterday and they have a 30 piece router bit set for $109 (regularly). They had it marked down to $69 (giggity) so I went online to look at the reviews. Come to find out it was $49 online. I went to the register to ask and it rang up $49 even though it wasn't marked as such. Just a heads up.

edit: for the pro-woodworker I'd say these probably aren't professional grade but for the small amount of projects and stuff I do, I feel like it'll fit the bill.

I picked it up on Black Friday for $39.99. The bits work well and are sharp. Router bits can get very $$$

Bought the XR Brushless Dewalt combo(hammer drill/impact) last Friday. Made this out of 1/2" blondewood. Top is sloped at 10 degrees. This will eventually be hanging on a french cleat system.

Started working on the wife's christmas present. Purpleheart bowl. First turning project and so far its going well. Still need to finish digging out the inside and build a box for it out of spalted pear.

I wouldn't quite call the easel "woodwork" but the drawer/shelf unit is. I built the easel in 5 minutes, the changing table I built back when Sage was born (2010). It's held up well. It doesn't have drawer slides. Just hardwood runners that get a coat of wax every now and again. It's salvage flooded red oak flooring and sanded sheathing.

Wifey complained less than I did about the work quality on the easel (and dirty vise prints from using the sawzall to cut it cause I built it at the shop and forgot circular saw at home.. oh well. She's plenty happy with it to do her paintings, that's what counts)

Changing table was built and finished while she was in the hospital recovering from Sage. Poor woman didn't get an epidural, b!tched at me for not getting one, and didn't regret it for one second after delivery.. but in the meantime I was the asshole. Always am.

Finished the wife's Christmas projects and she got to open them on Christmas morning.

The box is made out of spalted pear with walnut keys. It measures 7" square and about 5" tall. I mitered cut the box edges, used a 1/2" dado to set the keys and then dadoed the corners for a rounded look. The bottom and top of the box have a 3/8" rabbet so they are inset. The handle was cut out of walnut on the CNC router. The bowl was turned out of purpleheart square stock on the lathe(first bowl ever). It fits nicely in the box.

All in all it was a fun project that forced me to really slow down and plan out my steps. This was not the original design or plan for the box but I made a few mis calculations and this was the easiest way to fix it. I think it turned out great and the wife loves it.

Also managed to throw together a mobile bench with my tablesaw. This has been a long time coming. It measures 4'x7' and has plenty of room for storage, assembly, cutting, etc

I think my next project will be to either finish the table on the bench now or start working on building a cigar humidor.

All in all it was a fun project that forced me to really slow down and plan out my steps. This was not the original design or plan for the box but I made a few mis calculations and this was the easiest way to fix it. I think it turned out great and the wife loves it.

Also managed to throw together a mobile bench with my tablesaw. This has been a long time coming. It measures 4'x7' and has plenty of room for storage, assembly, cutting, etc

I think my next project will be to either finish the table on the bench now or start working on building a cigar humidor.

I'm sorry, did you just say "CNC router"?

Plenty of drinking at a oyster roast but ain't lost a knife yet. if I knew what I was doing I could crank one out in about an hour or so. Plus the blank wasn't very expensive so if it gets gone its not the end of the world

I’ve been playing around in my shop a little lately. Did the flat pack chair just to see how it worked. Came out pretty cool but it’s not as sturdy as I was hoping. Wedding sign is made from an old shelf board that I think is walnut. The euro mount plaques are walnut as well. They’re for a taxidermist friend in SC. A pic of the deer goes in the opening.

@Rnuovrcj5 now thats a CNC Router! :eek: Thats awesome. I wish we had enough space in the woodshop for one that size.

Thanks. It’s a 4’x8’ ShopBot that is lucked into with a blown controller. Got it fixed up with an open builds blackbox control and it’s been pretty nice. Only real downside is that everything in my shop is covered in sawdust now. Haha.

you know the difference between a good Carpenter and a bad Carpenter? A good Carpenter can hide his mistakes.

Which is why I am not a builder/contractor. I am too much of a perfectionist, and don't know when to stop and cover/hide/let it slide and move on. All the profits would go into making something as good as can be, that paint is going to cover up anyway.

No one is perfect. I've never seen or done a perfect job. I will say that every job I do is better than the last one but that's it. And remember, puddy and paint make it what it ain't!

Another project done. A friend of mine has quite an extensive scotch collection and wanted a new liquor cabinet. He designed it, brought me the materials and I built it. 3/4" maple plywood and red oak for the trim. I think it came out very nice and its solid as hell. He's going to stain it and then hang some barn doors on it.

Made a crude trundle bed for moms attic room so all the grand kids can pile up at her house. Locust/oak barn wood from my place, some old door jambs I tore outta my house for the rails, and some chinesium Lowes plywood and 1x's for the panels. I used some bed rails brackets off Amazon that actually work really nice. All the painted pieces were sprayed with Sherwin William PreCatalyzed lacquer. I found a box of decorative headed cut nails hiding on grandpas old store so they got used to attach the caps on the headboard and footboard.
