Pine Armoire Entertainment Center Plan
BHP-05


Pine Entertainment Armoire


While it's true that many of us choose to fill our homes with all the latest entertainment equipment, it's also true that many of us prefer to hide the equipment when not in use.

Besides being a solid piece of furniture, this armoire offers flexibility. An adjustable shelf in the lower part of the cabinet, and an adjustable-rebuildable VCR rack in it's upper portion, allows for the accommodation of many different electronic toys.

This project was also designed to be built using a minimum of expensive power tools. By making use of standard No.2 pine, it's possible to construct your own version of the armoire without a jointer or planer. All that's required is a table saw, router, belt sander, and a jig saw.

The bottom photo shows the front exposure with the raised panel pocket doors in the closed position. The adjustable shelf in the lower section will allow the addition of CD racks.

The TV sits on a swivel, pull-out shelf to allow better viewing.

The plans show the unit being built as complete 72" tall side panels, but depending on the clearances in your shop, you may have to build separate top and bottom sections......believe me!...a friend of mine had to notch out the header beam in his century home, to get this project out of the basement!!!

Plans include step-by-step instructions, materials list with part numbers, and assembly drawings.

DIMENSIONS: 38 1/2"W x 20"D x 72"H

Garden Gate Planter Plan
BHP-07


Garden Gate Planter

This is an easy to build and versatile planter. It can be made with cedar fence boards, or 3/4" pine, painted and antiqued, like the picture. If you don't own a table saw, this project can be made of stock lumber from any building centre.
The back slats make it look like a gate, and you can change the pattern to suit the style of your home or match your picket fence.
Two planters look great on the deck on both sides of the patio door. The section at the top holds a plastic planter, to keep the wood protected. The tray and shelf have open slats for drainage.
The shelf at the bottom can hold a potted plant as shown , or a display of garden sculptures. We remove the plants for the winter, fill the top with pine branches and cones, and put Christmas decorations on the shelf.
A great weekend project for the beginner, or a very marketable item at craft shows. Plans include step-by-step instructions and a numbered diagram.

Child's Step Stool Plan
BHP-09


Child's Step Stool

Child's Step Stool This solid cherry and maple child's bathroom stool, is a straightforward project, but utilizes many angled cuts on the table saw and drill press.
The basic joinery is screw and plug, so that it has an interesting contrast and appeal to youngsters. The
angle of the legs and their outwardly tapered shape, makes it very sturdy and strong. An adult can stand on any edge of this stool, and it won't tip over.
Plans include instructions, a dimensional materials list and full page parts assembly diagram.


DIMENSIONS: 9" x 12" x 5 5/8"

Shaker Hall Table Plan
BHP-18


Shaker Hall Table

This historically accurate Shaker reproduction hall table will give you a valued piece of furniture without the high cost of an original antique.

If antiquing doesn't appeal to you, this table looks great in oak, cherry, or natural pine.

The construction techniques include dovetailed drawers, using a dovetail jig and router, tapered legs using a
tablesaw jig, and mortise and tenon joinery. The plans though, may be altered for more simpified construction.

Downloadable plans are in Adobe PDF format and include full colour photos and close-ups, distressing technique, layout diagram and dimensional parts list.

Mission Folding Chair Plan
BHP-30

Mission Folding Chair©

 
 Mission_Chair

 Mission_Chair

Unlike a regular folding directors chair, which uses metal braces, this design is completely made of wood except for two bolts. This chair utilizes a dowel ended cross support that runs in a dadoed slot in the legs.

In designing this chair, I felt it was important to keep the integrity of the
original chair, made by my Grandfather in the 1930's. I have refurbished the last 2 original chairs, but I find that they are too small for most people.The new design is 3" wider and 2" taller, so it can be used at a regular height dining table. I have changed the design by adding mission style side panels for strength, ease of assembly and material replacement when needed.

As seen in the pictures above, the chair folds to 5" wide for easy storage. Great for carrying in your trunk for the kids ball games, picnics, the beach or tucking away in a corner for extra seating when guests arrive.

The Adobe PDF plans include 38 colored,
step by step images, that you can zoom in on to get a closer look. There are also 4 pages of sized images with all dimensions shown. The only templates necessary are the arm supports and back dowel supports, that are supplied on 1/4"x1/4" graph paper for easy copying.

You will need a table saw, router and table, band saw, stationary sander, drill press and dado blade.

The
downloadable instructions are on Adobe Acrobat . Directions for building a Taper Sled, are also included. All plans are in standard and metric dimensions.

Washstand Plan
BHP-10

Wash Stand

This solid cherry and birds-eye maple washstand can be built with any other wood, but this design lends itself to the distinctive contrasts of these two hardwoods. The birds-eye maple door panels add interest and beauty, and the cherry will darken with age to accentuate the contrasting tones.

This is an intermediate-plus project involving mortise and tenon joinery, panel doors and basic cabinet construction. The doors open with European hinges and the drawer is friction fit.

After lots of careful sanding and four coats of antique oil finish, this will make a prized possession in your home. For accent pieces take a look at the complimenting plans for the dresser mirror and child's bathroom stool.

Plans include a dimensional materials list, instructions and full page assembly diagram.
