Clamp fittings, I found the system easy to use. After I adjusted the rails and rods for the first side panel, I could simply transfer the set-up to the opposite panel without readjusting or measuring. Best of all, when I assembled the cabinet, it was perfectly square and had no gaps. The Veritas System is well-made and well-conceived. After 25 years of working with 32mm cabinetry, I'm glad to sec a company provide a simple, affordable 32mm drilling jig. Because you can only drill one hole at a...

Last fall, when we dccidcd to host Thanksgiving dinner at our house, I found the perfect excuse to build the dining room table I've always wanted. Because our dining room is small, the table had to be something I could easily fold up between meals. And 1 wanted a piece that would lit with the general Early-American style my wife and I like. I finally decided to adapt a Shaker drop-leaf design to produce a table that would seat eight comfort ably, yet stand neatly against a wall when the leaves...

I'm always looking for a way to make machines more efficient. And if I can save money too, so much the better. With this shop-made oscillating sander I've achieved both goals. It costs less than 30, takes up no extra space, and makes my drill press a more versatile machine. Best of all, switching from drilling to sanding takes less than a minute. an auxiliary motor connects by an eccentric to a push rod assembly, and that drives one of the drill press spokes back and...

A few weeks ago I got a call from Pat Huxta, a teacher at the day-care center that Kodak Press runs for employees children. It seems the school-age kids wanted to build a birdhouse. The center had a pile of scrap wood and a few old hand tools, but they needed a proper bench to work on. Pat showed me a picture of a flimsy-looking child's workbench in a mail-order catalog. I knew 1 could do better, so I designed this one. It's sturdier, costs less and only took me a weekend to build. right for...

British furniture designer Rupert Senior says he and his partner, Charles Wheclcr-Carmichael conceived this expanding dining table because, we find so often furniture is a static thing and we wanted to make some change to that. The table seats six when the leaves are closed, but the pie-shaped parts of the top rotate on roller bearings to expand the table into a 12-seater. The rectangular leaves and removable candlesticks store in a leaf carousel that doubles as a candle stand. The table took...
