As a member of the Southern Woodworkers i am taking part in the annual Makers Swap, i was chosen to build a piece for the shop: A Glimpse Inside.

The Makers Swap is a great way to grow camaraderie with fellow woodworkers by crafting a piece that another shop can either use or proudly display. A Glimpse Inside has a great shop set up so i figured a piece that he can proudly display in his shop or home would be the best bet. I decided to build him a custom, one of a kind Rusted Nail push stick with box made with genuine Reclaimed American Chestnut.

If you haven’t already check out the A Glimpse Inside Youtube channel and Instagram, you won’t be disappointed.

A glimpse inside

To get an alternate Voice Over with more of a “How To” approach where i talk about what i am doing and what i am thinking while building this piece, become my patron at

Clamp Stand/Rack http://woodworkingformeremortals.com/clamp-standrack/ Fri, 18 May 2018 13:19:19 +0000 https://woodworking.formeremortals.net/?p=10496 Posted by Han Hartung

My name is Hans, and I’m a novice. So far I’ve mastered saw dust, and that’s an accomplishment. Being retired military, I didn’t get much woodworking experience. However in the years following my military retirement, I got into woodworking and accumulated lots of clamps and things. I was storing all my clamps on my Little Giant ladder and so I needed to get organized.

Caleb again. This week I’d like to share my narrow cherry side table. I’d been wanting to make another side table and saw different variations of these narrow ones and really liked them. I have a video for it as well. Thank you to those who watch.

Coffee Table for Mothers Day http://woodworkingformeremortals.com/coffee-table-for-mothers-day/ Fri, 11 May 2018 17:06:22 +0000 https://woodworking.formeremortals.net/?p=10477 Posted by Jeffrey Burke

This is my submission for the Rockler Plywood Challenge hosted and judged by the guys at the Modern Maker Podcast. The challenge is to design and build a piece of furniture using a single piece of plywood. Other material can be added but the single sheet of plywood should remain the main material. I decided to get 2 birds with 1 stone with this project. My submission is a Coffee Table for my mother for Mothers Day. The design is built with a 3/4″ sheet maple plywood with reclaimed barn wood edge banding and inlays. The drawers open to both the front and the back for easy access. Let me know what you guys think of the project or ask any questions you may have in the comments and visit the guys of The Modern Maker Podcast and let them know what you think.

Kitchen Utensil Holder http://woodworkingformeremortals.com/kitchen-utensil-holder/ Fri, 11 May 2018 10:04:23 +0000 https://woodworking.formeremortals.net/?p=10474 Posted by Caleb Noth

Hey, everyone. This is a kitchen utensil holder I made for my wife. It’s made using walnut and cherry, it’s base is plywood, just because it’s inset and will never be seen. I have a YouTube video for it as well. I’ve made beer mugs and it’s pretty much the same method.

I’m so happy with this! I followed Steve’s plans – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciSmliVhVZA
but adjusted them slightly to make it a queen size. Thanks for the easy-to-follow plans, and for all your videos making woodworking easy for mere mortals like myself.

The Valet Book http://woodworkingformeremortals.com/the-valet-book/ Mon, 07 May 2018 10:04:32 +0000 https://woodworking.formeremortals.net/?p=10468 Posted by Donald Richmond

My name is Donald Richmond, and I saw a youtube video of a Wooden Book by Woodworking For Mere Mortals a few months ago for this project. And said I can do that. My mother loves John Grisham’s books so said I’ll make it a Mothers day gift. She needs somewhere to put her keys.
So its a Valet tray that her pets cant steal her keys from. Sorry I do not have the equipment to record my projects at the moment, nor am I on Youtube. I am merely starting out and more of a hobbyist. Maybe in the future.

Replica of Dorium Maldovars Headless Box from Doctor Who http://woodworkingformeremortals.com/replica-of-dorium-maldovars-headless-box-from-doctor-who/ Sat, 05 May 2018 11:28:08 +0000 https://woodworking.formeremortals.net/?p=10465 Posted by Roger Saiger

My name is Roger, I’m originally from the UK but I now live in Canada. I built this for a friend who travels round comic cons in the USA with a mobile Doctor Who museum, she has actual screen used props as well as replicas. Been a fan of WWMM for a long time and it’s definitely been an inspiration to have a go!
