If you do a lot of woodworking projects, you likely have accumulated a lot of leftover lumber. After a while, all of that lumber can take up a lot of space, especially if you are already working in a small area. Having a good storage and organizing system will not only keep your space neat and tidy, but it will also keep the lumber in good shape and make your work zone more efficient. A good lumber cart is one of the first steps to taking back control of your workshop. Today’s project will show you how to build a lumber cart for small spaces.
Marble is a beautiful natural stone that adds a luxurious feel and a high-end look to any home. It lends a classic elegance that never goes out of style.

Fortunately, I know an easy way to make a marble accent table, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to do it.
Sometimes a person just doesn’t have enough space to fit all of their workshop tools. Maybe that is because your workshop is really small.

So this week, I am going to show you how to build my 3-way convertible workbench!
There are certain items in a DIYers toolkit that seem to become staples over time. One of those items for me is dowel rods.

If you are a professional woodworker, then yeah, I am probably talking about you. If you are a beginner, be warned! We are going to discuss when to NOT use pocket hole screws!
