Dog stuff holder (excuse to use the "new" bandsaw)

Furnished content.

Dog stuff holder  (excuse to use the "new" bandsaw)Bandsaw purchased last spring but havent had opportunity to use it much. This is a silly project I finished last week. Holder for “dog stuff” by the garage door. Used the wood I played with on the bandsaw (walnut strip in poplar) for the front and then tried large finger joints on the bandsaw with questionable outcome. Added few screws so seems solid enough. Decided to add some interest to the back board so I cut some more rolling waves at the band saw. Used keyhole slots; so it is now home securely on the garage wall by our door. No more looking for dog combs and brushes. Teddee did not seem impressed

Simple Butcher Block Workbench

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Simple Butcher Block WorkbenchSimple workbench that took me 3 years to build…I have a carpenter's bench with end-vise in the middle of my shop so I can work all around it. This is a secondary “side bench” fixed to the wall for assembly work, fix-it projects, etc.Was going to glue up a pine top but found a 2” thick 2' x 6' maple butcher block for $50, so I picked that up and glued up stock for legs about 3 years ago. And there it sat until last week when I got back to it and finally finished it!Cutting the big stretcher mortises was interesting. In the past I've used a tablesaw stacked dado blade. Pain to set up and adjust, and still the cuts aren't that clean. This time I hogged out the mortises on the bandsaw to within 1/8” of final size, then set up the equivalent of a crosscut sled on my router table, set stop blocks, and routed the mortises to final dimension. Worked fantastic, it was quick, all 14 mortises are exactly identical size, and the stretchers snug in perfectly! I test assembled the whole thing dry with no glue/screws, and it stood up itself just fine and pretty stout.2' x 5' maple butcher block top
Pine legs, 3”x 3”, made by jointing two 2×4's, then gluing together
Pine stretchers, glued and screwed into half-lap mortises in the legs
No front stretcher at the top, so I have unhindered access for clamping.
3/4” maple plywood lower shelf. Later it'll get a drawer unit.-
