Here are a few plans I have drawn.

The plans are really only dimension drawings and leave the actual cutting and construction detail to the user.

They are all in PDF file format and so you will require Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print them. All are free and I hope you are able to get some use out of them. Help yourself and enjoy.

Check back often as I will be adding many more as I get them in order. I would be pleased to hear from you with any suggestions or ideas for this section.

Six Shelf Tall Bookcase

Uprights and shelves are made of 3/4" Birch plywood. Back is of 1/4" Birch plywood which is set into a dado and gives the unit strength and stability. Holes are drilled in the uprights along the inside face to insert 1/4" shelf pins making all the shelves adjustable. As you can see, this baby holds a lot of books.

Computer Desk

A large surface area gives this desk excellent work space. The lower rear panel is set in from the back edge by six inches giving a place to hide all the wires. Material is 3/4" Birch plywood and the drawer is 1/2" Birch plywood. Exposed edges are edge banded with Birch banding and the edging around the top is solid Birch. The work surface is Formica. Position of the shelf can be altered to fit a particular computer. I used pocket hole screws in the construction.

Small Kitchen Table

Small Kitchen Table

This was a project where I wanted to make a small table using only odds and ends of materials I had in the shop. Scrap wood pieces tend to build up fast and I was running out of room. It came out so well I gave it to my daughter who has been using it ever since. Materials and construction notes are in the plan.

Drill Press Cabinet ClosedDrill Press Cabinet Open

Drill Press Cabinet

A cabinet to store all my drill bits and other drilling paraphernalia. It is mounted on 3" casters which allow it to be rolled out of the way when I need to drill something tall. The two front casters are locking so that the whole cabinet doesn't roll forward when you try to open a drawer.

It's designed to fit around the drill press column and roll right over the base. You may have to alter some of the dimensions to accommodate your drill press. I've used this one on two different presses with no problem.
