Plywood Lifting Jig System

I’m more excited about this project than any I’ve designed and/or built in a long time! As a one man show in my shop, I often have to move full sheets of plywood around. Enter, the complete plywood lift system.

There’s a handle to move the plywood around and it will stand freely with a full sheet of plywood sitting on it. And then, there’s the lift arm. Mount it to your work table and use the handle to place plywood sheets on the lift arm and easily lift them onto your table.

Board & Batten Shutters

These shutters will instantly improve your home’s curb appeal and they’re easy to build. Make them as simple or intricate as you want. Use dimensional lumber from the hardware store and you don’t even need a table saw….just something to cross cut wood to length (miter saw, hand saw, jigsaw, etc).

Spice Rack Shelves

These shelves are made to fit a standard one door cabinet, but can be adapted to fit any cabinet with the right measurements. There are two shelves that sit on shelf pins and a stand for the bottom that has space for storage underneath, as well.

This is an easy beginner woodworking project that I built with only a jigsaw, but you can use any tool that will crosscut wood.

Circular Saw Bevel jig

You probably won’t need this jig very often, but when you do, it’s a lifesaver. This jig is essentially a track for your circular saw that sets the workpiece at 45 degrees. This allows you to cut a bevel greater than 45 degrees on long and wide workpieces by tilting the circular saw to add to the existing 45 degree angle.
