Quick Look: Kreg Automaxx Face Clamp


My quick look at the Kreg Automaxx face clamp. The 3″ reach model goes for $29.99, $7 more than their standard 3″ face clamp.

Sketch of the Day: Fantasy Side Table


I call this a fantasy side table because I felt like something you might see as a prop on a movie set for something like The Hobbit series. It might be as elaborate, but as a concept it’s heading in that direction.

Sketch of the Day: Keeping Room Ottoman


I might have to make this ottoman concept for my home. Our keeping room has a couch that really needs something on which to prop up my feet and provide a little storage. I divided the cushion areas to add a little visual interest and to make sure that when one person moves his or her feet on a cushion, it doesn’t affect another person.

Plan of the Week: Garden Throne Side Table


The Chief’s Shop Garden Throne Side Table is a companion project for the garden throne. This outdoor side table could also work as a standalone piece on a deck or patio. A miter saw, drill/driver, and Kreg Jig® are all you need to build it.

Sketch of the Day: Narrow Hall Table


This hall table concept is just 11 1/4 inches deep (the width of a 1×12). It’s certainly an experimental design, as you’ll notice in the video below.
