Drill Press Bit Caddy
Keep commonly used bits and drilling accessories close at hand with this simple-to-build holder. We designed this one to fit a 3 1/8”-diameter column, but you can modify it to fit yours.
For the Kids: Simple Scrollsawn Gears
Turn the kids loose with a pile of these scrollsawn gears and let their imagination run through an infinite number of spinning setups and creative configurations. Each gear sits atop a movable gear based and mounted to perforated hardboard.
Full-size patterns for all gears included.
A weighted base and cantilevered shelves ensure that your collectibles sit on a secure foundation. And the simple joinery (made possible by an easy dado jig) makes this a weekend project that’s sure to please.
Great Gift: Business Card Holder
With a few exotic scraps and a marble, you can build this eye-catching desk accent. We used zebrawood and wenge on our holder, but any two contrasting species will make this holder stand out on a desktop.
Cover Project: Pub Table and Chairs
Inspired by the furnishings found in many neighborhood water holes, this cherry and ash set will serve well in a man cave or even on the patio if you bring it back inside when the party ends. The simple screw-and-dado joinery creates a solid, wobble-free table and chairs.
So easy to build, you’ll make one set for your man cave and another for the breakfast nook!
Construction-Grade Dump Truck
Gravel, sand, dirt, or debris—this tabletop truck is built to haul it all. Lift the box to dump a load and the tailgate swings open. A support drops down to hold the box up until the cargo empties or to simply prop it up for display.
