Remember that liking, subscribing, or sharing free content goes a long way in helping produce more free content. If you like that creator’s work, share it! Also, thank you to those who send me links through the week when you find something really interesting.

One Board Challenge

The next four projects (there are more than what I’m showing!) are each from a one board challenge build. The challenge was to use a single 8′ 1×8 board of any species and just make something out of it. Click on each image to view each project. The first is a modern wall shelf by

The second is a kids step stool from

The third is a beautiful walnut folding laptop desk from

And the fourth is another step stool but this time from

Brian Boggs Chairmakers

Here’s a very beautiful chair. I wish more of the process was shown in video but I suppose pictures will do. Some beautiful wood as well.

Mike and Lauren

The beginning stages of an adjustable height workbench. Maybe you can incorporate this design into something.

Paul Sellers

It’s hard to skip through Paul’s videos. He’s one of those people where when he talks I shut up and listen. Full of practical woodworking knowledge. Sharpening and setting the bench plane.


A hand tool made drawer for the hand tool folks :)

Jenkins Custom Homes

Maybe more of a WOW factor than anything. But it is interesting.


David shows a process for making a guitar. I believe he said he will be making another one without the use of a CNC soon. It’s a really nice project regardless of the method.


This isn’t woodworking but it’s an interesting concept. Making a beautiful set of steak knives from second-hand knives.


  1. Thanks Jay, I really dig your “Interesting things around the web” Series,. You find great content and essentially hand me more time to browse even more DIY vids.

  2. They say sitting is the new smoking. A desk that will allow you to stand and work is a very good idea for the health conscious. Thanks for sharing that mechanism. Coming soon: no sitting in the workplace.
