How to Build a Custom Built In Closet

I built this wonderful built in closet for my son.  It's great efficient use of space with lots of storage compared to what used to be here, a desk.

Simple Router Dado Jig Video

It seems I was in need of a dado jig for my router for some upcoming projects, so I decided to put one together and share it with other woodworkers.  I hope you enjoy my short and to the point video!

The Ultimate Shop Stool

Check out this easy to build shop stool!  Not only is it a great place to sit in the woodworking shop but it also can serve as an extra hand for great outfeed support.

These plans used to be free but now they charge for them!  How silly?!?! I'm so sorry everyone but maybe I can get another video out describing the dimensions and things in more detail? click here to go to American Woodworker's page on it.

How to build a Folding Stick Chair

This chair is a fairly simple build, although it does take a fair amount of time to cut the parts and drill the holes in all of them, but after that's done it's pretty simple.  The design sparked my interest and I figured I would make one or two of them, I'm glad I did, they turned out great!

IMG of Chair

There are plans for this chair in a few places online, some will cost you some will be free but are difficult to understand or navigate through due to ads and whatnot.  I hope to provide you with a straight forward and easy to follow how to guide!

Have a look at my short video to get the what all the project entails and understand how everything works.  You will find the details and dimensions of the pieces below the video.

All of the pieces are cut out of 2x4 stock, they are all 1 1/4" x 1 1/2".
All holes are drilled on the wider 1 1/2" side of each piece and also centered across the piece.

Easy Door Frame Rot Repair

My future father-in-law's back door was starting to rot at the bottom and he asked me about it. He said he wanted to know if he needed a whole new door.  I told him I could just patch it up with some epoxy putty and he looked at me a little funny. Once the job was done, he was pleasantly surprised at how good it looked and he was surely glad he didn't have to buy a new door.

I made a video on the method I used, maybe you could use it too!
