If I realized I needed a shop I would have gone right to the layout I have now instead of evolving it Also I would have bought the best tools at once instead of upgrading little by little When I buy a lathe its going to be my last lathe

This versatile table with a removable worksurface allows Jeff additional space to assemble projects when aligned with his outfeed table. Continuous hinges allow the rectangular sides and folding end assemblies to collapse for easy storage. The tabletop leaves each consist of two plywood skins over lattice frames, covered with plastic laminate. "I can't do heavy hand-planing on it," Jeff says, "but it holds nice and secure, keeps the base corners at 90°, and leg levelers allow me to adjust the height to match the slope of my garage floor."

This quartersawn oak cabinet stores gloves, boots, and other winter gear. To match the grain pattern as much as possible on the legs, Jeff used a router-table-mounted lock-miter bit. The four-part finish starts with aniline dye, followed by stain, coated with shellac, then sealed with polyurethane.

woodworker's profile he woodworking magazines Jeff Tobert liked to read all emphasized how easy their projects were to build. So Jeff built them.

"Dad and I had been making small projects for my daughters with a scrollsaw and hand tools, but I also subscribed to a bunch of magazines, including WOODJeff says. "So I started building the nightstands and bookshelves they featured. They really weren't hard. My woodworking more or less took off from there."

Jeff, who coaches high school football, has developed a coach's game plan to most projects. First, he does a scale drawing of the project. If that doesn't answer all his questions, he builds a mock-up of the complicated elements, or even the entire project, using rough-grade plywood. Then, if it looks good, he graduates to constructing the actual project.

Mistakes don't bother him. "At the end of the day, it's just a piece of wood," he says. "You can always start again."
