As far as space. All I have is one of those sheds you see in Home Depot parking lots. Red barn looking, double doors, orignally bought to store lawn mower and lawn equipment. Now the home of my hand tools and dirt bike. The only other space I have is right outside the shed door, under my deck, unprotected from any elements. I need a garage.
Sounds like you have more space than me but yeah I keep mine in the store room and pull them out into the garage when I need them!

I make pens. Kits are cheap. They're easy to make - 3 or 4 hours start to finish. I give them away to friends and family.

I would love to be able to make some decent furniture. I really want to build my dad a nice wine rack for fathers day, or his birthday which is a week before fathers day. He has a huge has and has tons of room for small pieces of furniture. And he drinks a ton of wine. I need some decent plans though, and better tools. And some high quality lumber.

I've also been known to make an occasional drawer unit . . .

for 80 series Land Cruiser



for FJ Cruiser


durability testing of the FJ drawer


I plan to work up some standard drawers for 4Runners, Tacoma pickups and Jeep Wranglers sometime soon too.

Yes, I use baltic birch. It is slightly heavier than basic hardwood plywood but stiffer and better with screws. Joints are rabbeted, glued and screwed both on the drawer and the carcass.

Thank you. It's all 1x3 poplar boards, no plywood. The finish is early american stain with minwax satin poly. It's a pretty flat finish, it looks shinier than it is because of the flash on the camera. The ice maker on the left is on rails for easier access, and the doors have frosted glass now.


My next projects are a coffee table, and a series of hooks and narrow shelving for our mud room.

You wouldn't happen to have a set of plans for this would you? I'm sure you probably just built it off your head, but plans would be awesome. I would give something lke that a shot to build.

These will be a good start. I used them for general measurements to get started.
