Bookshelf Here is a decorative yet rugged bookshelf. The design gets you into some lap joinery backed up by glue and fasteners. Perhaps this is a good project to start the interior collection in your own home. It’ll be a fun one to show off to guests, especially if it is well stocked. As built it is 30″ tall, 11″ deep and 40″ long. Download now for $5.

Coat Rack This rack has some Shaker qualities in my eyes. The big trick to work on with this project is the tapered post. A little research and some attention to detail will yield you a very nice product. The joinery is simple and rugged. Most the hardwoods will do you well, especially if you make them shine with some well applied varnish. Every home and office need one, make it special by building your own starting with $5 bucks for the plans.

Trestle Dog Feeder I’d put a wager down that this is one you haven’t seen before. I pulled some tips from a trestle table Norm built and turned it into a dog feeder. Your pup will love it for taking a little strain off the neck while he/she’s chowin’ down. I use one bowl for food and one for water. The size as built is appropriate for the dog in the 50 pound range. What’s a few more bucks spent on the pup? $5 download.

Book Crate Got kids? Know someone who does? This is a must have in the house. Toss in the toys and books to clean up, and it’s like Christmas everyday when the tots get to dig through the crate. We’ve also had great luck donating these with the support of American Pride Woodworking to young children entering the local school system with challenging backgrounds.

Farmers Table Expand your Shaker skills with this glorious table. Top dimensions are 51″ x 26″. Beautiful tapered legs and rugged mortise and tenon joinery. If it’s time to burn that Ikea table you’ve been dining on, this is a great replacement. Five bucks gets you started.

Trestle Bench This is a very decorative interior bench, great for an entry way to kick off the boots, or in the living room for some backup seating. The chamfered seat slats, trestle pins and leg curvature make this a very pretty build in a less than fancy shot. The detailed plans make this a straightforward build, like the rest, $5.

Bike Rack

The origin came from something I saw from Lowe’s. If you have the space this is a great organizing solution. However, in the spirit of Charitable Woodworking, this also makes an outstanding donation to your church, school, or park. Easy weekend build. $5
