I made this chisel cabinet out of some old barn board that I had kicking around the shop. It hangs on my wall, and gives me a space to store my mortising chisels, marking knife, and engineer’s square. Each of the tools is affixed within the box with a neodymium magnet that keeps it from falling out or knocking against the other tools. The cabinet has two doors that are held closed with a hard drive magnet, and I engraved the doors using my desktop CNC machine.
Here’s a simple project that anybody can do – an oak live edge bench with black hairpin legs. The materials are reasonably priced, and it only requires the most basic tools to complete, so grab a saw, get to sanding, and put some polyeurethane on it!
My buddy Derek needed some new end tables for his man cave. We sourced some African hardwood called Black Limba and built two beautiful tables to fit the spot that he had in mind. The wood is absolutely gorgeous, and really pops with a couple of coats of polyurethane on it.

These basic tool stands are really easy to build, and make it easy to move heavy, formerly stationary tools around my workshop. I’ve got a small space, so the fact that they add to my organization options is also really helpful. They’re made out of 2x4s, 1/2″ plywood, 3/4″ plywood, and some cheap casters. The entire project cost around $100 for both. These are a great project for somebody just starting to build out their workshop.
Every year on St. Patrick’s Day, one street in our city turns into a giant party attended by thousands of drunk students. The lead up to the party always comes with a bunch of media coverage about the size of the party, the cost of policing it, and renewed promises to put an end to the festivities. Even so, year after year, the party rages on. This week on the show, Tyler, Derek, and Jon discuss the Ezra Street St. Patrick’s Day drink-up, how awesome prosthetic appendages have become, and giant asteroids that have a good chance of ending humanity.
My staircase is broken! One of the stairs seems to have cracked right half in two. In this video, I glue the crack shut, and add some support below the stair tread to stop it from happening again.
On this week’s show we talk about a recent almost-law that would have lowered the impaired driving threshold.
