Kid-sized tools from Amazon. Decent quality and real, tools. If you have any suggestions on making this better, let me know.
Should i oil it ? tips are welcome!
-the wood is called "bilinga"
-you can fold the chair
-it still needs a litle sanding and a varnish or oil
here i got the idea from
i know it's not perfect but i try to learn from mistakes.
thanks for all the comments!
This is just great. I know as both a cannabis consumer and a box enthusiast I would love to receive something like this as a gift.
If you wanna add something additional that would be super special and add to functionality, once you make the rolling tray , build a small frame that sits inside of it and purchase some 120 micron mesh screen > Here < and stretch it tightly over the frame and attach. Now when he rolls with it it will collect fallen keif . :)
My shop is very small (10' x 16') so I decided to ditch my crummy bench top router table and get this cast iron table saw extension. I found an Amazon warehouse deal for about $50 off that said the product was 100%, only the box was damaged. Instead of the cast iron table what I received was a couple pieces of plywood screwed together and painted silver. Whoever did this even took the time to cut dados for the miter gauge slots. Oddly enough the fence was still in the package but the sliding MDF pieces were also replaced with plywood.
Luckily Amazon is great and immediately refunded/shipped another, but just thought I'd rant/share -- I was so excited to use this table yesterday!
This looks identical to the one they sell on Amazon
Edit: this wasn't meant as a slam of any sort. He's got pictures of it without finish, so it's obviously not just bought off of Amazon. I meant more of a, "hey I've seen an item like this before"
This kit is pretty good. Give that a try.
Woke up to a lot of love! Thanks everyone for making me even more excited to show it to her. She’s definitely annoyed I haven’t asked yet so she might just grab the ring from the box and put it on herself at this point :P
To those curious about the wiring: I cannibalized this cheap amazon box and saved all the parts as buying them separate would have cost way more (it was $9). It came with two watch batteries wired to a resistor and a spring loaded pressure switch.
The hinges are 10mm barrel hinges that are installed using a 10mm forstner drill bit. They are really difficult to drill perfectly so practice first or buy a jig.
The carving on top is two elephants separated by a heart. That was really hard and would look way better with a cnc laser or engraver but hopefully she can tell.
Thanks again everyone for the compliments. You’re a great community!
Dad of a 1.5 year old here, definitely listen to the guy above. This stuff was a lifesaver during teething and I believe it is removable with a hairdryer: https://www.amazon.com/Kidkusion-Extra-Gummi-Cover-Clear/dp/B001KXGIAC
Use a pop up like this one that’s a wireless charger when hidden, USB if slightly up (and hey that covers 99% of use cases for couchlets right?) and then 110V all the way up. Vertically mounted to avoid spilling.
3M WorkTunes Connect Hearing Protector with Bluetooth technology, $35 shipped on Amazon. I got some recently and really like them, makes me want to keep them on when they have music.
I’ve been using these cork coaster backers:
Blisstime 36 PCS Self-Adhesive Cork Sheets 4"x 4" for DIY Coasters, Cork Board Squares, Cork Tiles, Cork Mat, Mini Wall Cork Board with Strong Adhesive-Backed https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KBZCH23/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabc_H7vSFbN2X6XBV
They are easy to cut to whatever size, self adhesive, and super thin so they don’t change the profile much. The adhesive doesn’t stick as well to finished feet but I had to scrape them off with a scraper on a set of unfinished feet when I had made a mistake.
Also, $9.98 gets you a million of them and I’ve barely made a dent several projects in
Yup, user is selling these statues (made in China) on Amazon. This is another of their listings: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08PYWSMN4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_DVWP0Z6RKA7SA3QYNVYY
That said, someone did make the original design. It can still move you, but these are being mass produced already.
also...if you just wanted to keep the cabinet there, but vent the cabinet, ive had success with something like this...I keep all my wifi stuff in a cabinet and just vent it out with these.
I’m really bad at the internet let me try
I put my sandpaper in an expanding file folder like this. Works well for me.
Well crap, this is serious! I did a search on the UPC and it is listed as "SPRI Wooden Plyo Jumping Box".
Here is the website for it: http://www.spri.com/plyoboxes/ They list it as ~$150, but a bunch of ebay sellers are very much near $200. Here it is on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/SPRI-Wooden-Plyo-Jumping-Box/dp/B017ELSJWS

This is good advice. Better advice is to remove the human and add a seal in or magnetic switch. If the power goes out, the tool will stop and not restart until you press start again.
I'd venture a guess at Amazon, only because I have the same latch on a project and I recognize the feet from my browsing. The latch.

I love everything about this except the straps and screws. I would abandon them entirely, I think they detract from the piece. The poor screws don't fit and certainly don't deserve the time and effort you've put into this. I would either plug the holes or use a different fastener, like maybe these
Flooring guy here. We use some pretty nasty industrial stuff sometimes. Everything from TSP (which isn't made any more I don't think) to muratic acid. The average homeowner does not want to mess with those as they can easily damage stuff when used improperly. We use them for time constraints (people who hire us tend to not want to pay for us to wait around on things, time is money).
Far better is to use stuff made for homeowners. It is slower and less powerful, but it still gets the job done. Something like this:
Bleach will also work but hydrogen peroxide (milder type of bleach) should be used first before going full on with regular chlorine bleach. And everything should be used with windows open and ventilation going on. Even stuff that doesn't seem that bad, can cause headaches or stuff like that.
And the area needs cleared before cleaning. No wood anywere near where water or cleaner can be splashed on. If it is something like wall studs, covering them with visqueen and stapling it on will suffice for keeping splashes off them.
Get yourself one of these AccuRemote Digital Electronic Magnetic Angle Gage Level / Protractor / Bevel Gauge. Literally takes the guess work out of it. Set on the bed, zero it, stick to blade and set angle. It's great for miter saws, tables saws, etc.
False. As Merriam-Webster explains, it is indeed a word. "Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead."

This isn't the exact one OP used, but outlets like this are indeed UL listed for face-up installation, and are specifically marked as a "furniture power distribution unit" to satisfy code. So what OP did is perfectly legal as far as NFPA is concerned.
Your concerns are valid, but your assertion about legality is incorrect...assuming the specific device OP used is properly marked and listed.
Beautiful work. I've made several clipboards myself and know what a pain it can be to do the glue ups on thin stock.
A friend of mine is a quilt designer, and had the same problem. I made hers a lot longer than standard so it would hold the longer paper she used for her work. I made a stand for it as well so she could look at it for reference, and keep her hands free.
Based on my experience, I'd recommend rounding over the corners a bit more to protect it from damage if dropped, or using corner protectors.
For those of you who didnt like the big clip, flat low profile ones are available. I cant for the life of me find my link for the ones I used, I preferred the antique look. Here are some from Amazon that are modern ones. flat clips.
Edit: Found one of my supplier links! Vintage clips. This is a great company for all kinds of small, hard to find hardware.
This was a modification of plans that I bought from woodcraft by U-Bild. I found them on Amazon here: U-Bild 797 Storage Bins Project Plan https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0051N7DPQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_wzbiBb5PTY9Q0
I came into a maple workbench that was cut out of an art school. After removing all the paint / clay, and some re-lamination, it ended up being an amazing dumpster find!

To be honest, WoodPecker doesn't really invent anything, they just iterate on existing designs and charge 5x-10x more than the original.
For example, their latest offering is the EZ Edge Corner Plane which costs $150, or $500 for a set of four, each with a different blade.
Now jump over to Amazon and search for "Chamfer Plane". The first page of results are Chinese knockoffs of the Woodpecker model that popped up within the past two weeks. Click the "Prime Only" box to limit your search to only products that Amazon warehouses and you'll find the Woodstock W1100 Slickplane
The SlickPlane costs $22, has replaceable blades with various profiles available at $16 for two blades, and has been sold on Amazon since 2003.
And for what it's worth, both Japanese chamfering pull-planes and concave spokeshaves have been around for centuries.
Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of Woodpecker.
This is the problem with the antique Stanley cult: it convinces newbies that their only realistic options for planes are rusty garbage or million-dollar Lie-Nielsens. It's complete bullshit, especially for things with as few moving parts as block planes. There is very nearly no such thing as a block plane that's complete crap.
My main block plane, and the block plane we've used to teach well over a hundred new cabinetmakers, is $19 new on Amazon, and the only work it needs out of the box is a quick sharpen. You can spend five times that on a new Veritas or ten times that on a Lie-Nielsen, or even just twice that on an ancient piece of junk you'll need a three days to get functional (and that probably won't even have a lateral adjustment lever), but there's absolutely no reason to.
Yes, the Silverline won't get your dick hard and isn't the kind of plane you can conspicuously leave in the frame of your Youtube videos to let viewers know you're better than them, but if you're about using planes instead of jerking off to them, it's a perfectly good choice.
Cut off some of the excess thread, and put a vinyl bolt cap on what is left. That is going to hurt when someone's leg eventually catches it.

You bet, ha. To clarify (hopefully) - it reminds me of a modern road bike frame, with the springy lines and the blended joins - where you can visualize the energy in tension and compression. Like this for example:

Ballpark $200.. I bought the wood about two years ago and believe it was ~ $80-$100 2x6x8 walnut. The epoxy, tyvek tape, mica powder and a few other things I didn’t have were about $110. Here’s the epoxy and mica powder in case anyone is interested.

I have had mine for 5 years. Replace the handle about once a year. Got tired of paying 30 bucks for a handle so I started making them. Imgur has an issue right now but I'll edit with a pic of one of the handles i made. Yours is way better and now I'm inspired.
Edit: Made the one on the left. https://imgur.com/a/c0QOz

I made my own handle from bloodwood with the same kit, definitely a fun small project!
I picked up the kit in a local wood shop, who also sold small blanks of wood for small projects just like this.
Like I said above pour in 3 inches of gravel at a time and compact it. You can use a 4x4 or the end of a sledge hammer if you want as your compaction tool.
Just use two 16 footers. 2 on the ends and 3 12 footers. A block every 4ft is plenty
here's a quick little drawing I made. It's true there is 6 ft spans but with 16" OC joists and 1 inch plywood it should be plenty strong.
3M Rugged Comfort Respirator 12$ at amazon. This is my go-to respirator, I have about 5-6 of them, and I believe the lowest ever price on this item.
When this was posted a couple weeks ago I modeled it in Sketchup and put it on thingiverse so you can download the files and 3D print it if you happen to have one. Somebody from Germany went crazy and turned it into a whole system.
It wouldn't make it any less crappy or more accurate, but it's cheap and easy to replace the on/off switch on a table saw, bandsaw, jointer, drill press etc. with a beefy recessed run/paddle stop switch:
Screw on (and ground) a handy box, a couple cord grip for the old rubber cord (or buy a new 25' extension cord and chop the end off if the previous cord was one of those pathetically short ones that come on new tools sometimes), and your main operator contact point will be far more pleasant to use.
I bought hydraulic lifts here:
I got the legs at this website and painted them black to match the lifts:
You should give EL lighting a try as well in future projects. Gives it a really cool neon affect. I did some stuff and routed out a little trench for the lighting to set in. Looked super sweet.
Something like THIS (I have never used this particular wire, it was just the first hit in my Amazon search and similar to ones I have used.) You can power via battery pack or any USB power adapter. Low cost and super flexible.
Even cheaper on amazon + clamp
plus $35 floater
I threw something together in Sketchup based on the bottle size. The .skp file is here.
I haven't made any fancy joinery on the model, so you'll have to imagine the awesomeness of the dovetails or whatever you think is best.

I am new to Reddit so forgive my ignorance. I will try to upload more pics. I bought this light fixture from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HHF6J4M/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
and did minor rewiring. Basically I cut all of the wires far shorter and used one of the remaining pieces to go back up to the ceiling box that was there from the previous light. I also chiseled out about 4" from the top of the beam to drop weight and give me a place to hide all of the wires. Will try to add pics now.
Thank you! I bought hardware from amazon. I'm using some pretty heavy duty floating shelf brackets. (Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MYWHRUS)
Edit: to expand on that - the shelves themselves are basically boxes that are open on the back and slide onto the brackets. The shelves are reinforced on the inside with ribbing.
I would use biscuit joints on the side panels and dowels for all the cross braces. I did a quick sketchup (I didn't measure or take any angles I just did a real quick match of the picture)
I could break it out if someone really wanted.

Be really careful when mounting a router directly into particle board/MDF. That’s how I did my first table, one day the router pulled the board apart, router went down and fell towards my feet/legs. It missed, but would’ve been ugly. At the very least use a mounting plate like this
That way the pressure/vibration is distributed over a big area.
I think most sedans, compacts, and some SUVs would be near their load capacity with 4 people near 200 pounds.

If that's an autonomous desk, the feet use M8 threaded bolts. I replaced the included feet with these wheels. It works well, but the bolts are longer than the holes are deep. I'll likely take a dremel to the bolts at some point in the future.
This things are great at 20 bucks a pop. They can drive huge speakers to they are 50Watts per channel. I used hot glue and the included plastic feet to mount it to the back.
Found it on Amazon for $20
Works well, but a bit more novel then useful, because my old eyes can't really see the display very well when I'm using the saw. But at least it kind of gives me a general idea of how much current each piece of equipment uses.
I bought an identical one on amazon for Christmas.
It’s got a raspberry pi running retropie. He’s an 80s guy, so mostly Atari 2600, and late 70s/early 80s arcade games like Dig dug, Donkey Kong. It has about 1,000 games on it now, and can play up to ps1 era games.
That's something you have to make yourself. I used this default branding iron from u/wilkraft and removed the letter and added my design on top of it. Once I receive my branding iron I will have to go but an awl or maybe use an ice pick.
If you are going to paint, don't use oak. The open grain shows through the paint and will not look smooth. Birch, maple or poplar are better choices for painting.
There is no single right way to build things, but it is a good idea to standardize your construction as much as practical. But don't try to make everything the same way if the end product needs something different. A combination of books, YouTube videos and looking cabinets others built is the way to go.

This stuff is called "linear rail" for anyone trying to find it. Not sure if this is the exact product OP used but should do the trick:
I can definitely imagine selling these at festivals or other night-time events. You could probably get a lot of mileage out of a cricuit cutter to “print” out these stickers. That would cut down on (long term) costs and def reduce the time-per-piece. Here’s one, but there are probably cheaper ones out there: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08FCW2LH8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_H5A37N0YA5NCH9154RT8?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
1000->3000 5" 8 hole sandpaper.
My guess would be something like Z-clips. The clip is screwed into the table top, and the other end of the clip slots into a groove in the apron (but not ALL the way in). This allows the tabletop to expand/contract over time without breaking the lower frame.
here’s an example of the clips I’m talking about
Harbor Freight - Clamps. Maybe some nitrile gloves. The wood handled 2.5 mini sledge hammer is a must have unless you are one of those that think chisels explode and kill 3 generations of your family when hit with metal.
Rockler - See if they sell Lee Valley gift cards. Otherwise it's an amazon showroom.The markup is so high it's almost comical
Also, can we trade Lee Valley for Rockler?

Fuck it, after working a giant motherfucking chunk of marble to glass-like smoothness it's probably a nice break.
As others have stated, continuous cleaning is a big part, and so is returning tools to their homes.
Vacuum ports on tools helps a lot.
Also…. It’s not the best but I have a 50$ cyclone trash can lid thing that definitely helps. Put the lid on a can and hook a shop vac to it. I also use some cheap dust filter bags meant for shop vacs on the inside. Unfortunately, this means my shop has two shopvacs, one for the can, one for the tools and it’s almost always loud in the shop. But it is consistently cleaner than before.
The Foredom is an excellent power carving tool. You can buy a hand piece with an adjustable chuck that will accept many size burrs. And, you can use very fine burrs all the way up to extremely coarse burrs. I've had this setup for years, and only had to replace the flex shaft when it go caught in my clothes and twisted it - the unit is pretty powerful.
End grain is really tough which is why it makes great cutting boards. I would use a hand plane with a sharp edge to smooth out those ridges.
This is a great tape measure: Fastcap Self-Adhesive 16'... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H2AFR3Q?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share used it on both sides of my miter saw station. Super nice because you should only have to buy one tape as on the reverse side is left handed.
Great work OP!
I can offer some guidance here. I just purchased a Medium Veritas shoulder plane and it is as great as you'd expect. Everything is flat and square as I have come to expect from LV. It also has a good feeling of heft to it as well.
If you don't want to dump $200 on one from LV, you should put serious consideration on this one from Stanley. It's listed as $63, but Amazon has a $10 off Stanley tools until the end of the year. Unlike their other planes on the market, it's actually pretty good. It even comes with a recommendation from /u/joelav which is very hard to come by. The back of the iron needs some flattening, but I've not heard a single bad thing come out of Joe's mouth about it.
I ADORE the Stanley Lever Lock ones. They are decent quality, but are way nicer to lock/unlock. They are ~$8 at home depot. Looks like 3.77 for the 12 footer on Amazon:
I love that you put the screws in from the top. For some reason, even after making three crosscut sleds, I've always told myself I have to put the screws in from the bottom, and have struggled every time to get it just right. Going in from the top just makes more sense.
As an easy aside though, instead of buying a cutting board then cutting that up, you can just by HDPE from Amazon for pretty cheap. Or if you want something better, you can buy UHMW HDPE, to go overboard if that's a thing for you.
no no. You could ruin the heat treating or mess up the edge. I would get a cheap wet stone personally:
Even sand paper is super aggressive, I'll use that if the edge has been damaged.
A leather strop and some polishing compound really finishes the job. This combo works great on chisels too
They’re DMT diamond stones. I found this set of three on Amazon for under $100. Coarse (325), fine (600), and extra fine ( 1200). They work really well. I think it’s a really good set for the price.
Byrd shelix cutterhead for DW735 planer on amazon right now for $207 - insane price!
It looks me way too long (3 hours) to install the vise, but now I can finally use it. Here some photos from the process. The vise is a cheap-o Irvin vise from Amazon. Is it perfect? No. Will it do for now? Yes.
Your cleanest solution would be a 60mm forstner bit (like this one): https://www.amazon.com/Roman-Carbide-DC1907-Forstner-60mm/dp/B00CCBHSIC
You could also cut a circular template for your router, but for cutting a perfectly circular template you'd need a circle-cutting arm for the router : )
Just a heads up, that "cutting board oil" is literally rebranded mineral oil. It is a lot cheaper to buy it from Walmart or CVS. Like literally a tenth of the cost.
Got this one from Costco: http://www.costco.com/TRINITY-48%22-Stainless-Steel-Rolling-Workbench.product.100161405.html
I was trying to find on on CL, but there aren't many in my area. I bit the bullet and bought the one from Costco since I needed the space and the table top was exactly what I was looking for. If you find them in-store, you don't have to pay the $100 for shipping.
Or you can buy it from Abebooks.com for a dollar plus a couple bucks shipping and help an independent book store rather than Amazon.
According to Camel, $399 is the normal price. Try looking on Craigslist. I got the DW733 (basically the same as the DW734) a few years ago used for $250.
actual 3D modeling is still a distant dream of tablets. It simply requires a mouse and keyboard to be viable IMO. But you might want to try out https://www.onshape.com/ . they are a cloud based free drafting software that does a very good job and "will" run on a tablet.
I wear a hybrid of glasses and goggles:
They're normal glasses, but with a rubber/foam (there's different models) gasket around the eyes like goggles have. It's meant to help prevent dust/dirt from getting into your eyes, but it'd work equally well for keeping stuff from flying up under them.
It's called a log tenon and you can get a cutter set here

Works great and automagiclly. Turn table saw on, vacuum turns on. Turn off table saw, vacuum turns off!
They're standard offset chest hinges. They're available anywhere including Amazon.
Amazon has the 8-piece set for $164, so this isn't really much of a deal.
If I had $160 to spend on chisels, I'd get some AI Mk2's instead. You should be able to get 5 chisels for around that number, which (in my book) is a lot better than having 8 Stanley 750s.
What kind of router did you get? And what is the collett size?
I bought this set from amazon and love it. It's got the basics you will need for starting out. And, as /u/snuffvieh said, get specialty bits as you need them. But get the quality ones, then.
As for a router table, I had a cabinet I made and put a router table top, Number 6 plan on this list on top of it. I took the drawer out of the top of the cabinet and put in a tip out. Not the best of plans, because shavings get caught in there really fast.
Woodcraft has a highly reviewed one on sale for $20 right now. Here are the Amazon reviews for it since it looks like the Woodcraft site doesn't have any reviews.
My local Woodcraft was out of them Saturday when I was there. So maybe call ahead if you're going to try to pick up locally.
