Woodworking for Everyone: Window Seat
 
01:01
A window seat will create a new living space in your home for relaxation and laughter. Reading a good book and enjoying a mug of coffee next to a window with sunshinestreaming through it can do wonders for the soul. The passage in our home features a nook area in front of a large window which was perfectly suited to this project. Building this custom-made window seat in front of it virtually created an extra room in the house and a focal point for the whole family. We had two foam cushions cut to size and covered, which we put on top of the seat to create a comfortable and stylish space in our home. The storage facility beneath the seat is also very practical and it is easy to open the seat panels and pack away large toys, board games and books.

Woodworking for Everyone: Toy Shelf
 
00:52
The eight compartments are square and deep enough for mediumsized toys and books. To calculate the size of the compartments I divided the space between our children's beds into four equal sections and made the overall height twice the size of the section. The backing is Masonite, which is nailed on with the smooth side facing inwards. All other corners are made with butt joints fastened with simple right-angle brackets and short wood screws. Halved joints are used between the middle shelf and vertical partitions which add rigidity to the shelf but these joints are difficult to cut accurately so the assembly usually requires some wood filler and painting to produce an adequate finish. You may wish to adjust the dimensions to accommodate larger toys or different size containers, or vary the design by merging adjoining compartments. A larger variation of this design that is suitable for a playroom could have additional rows, additional columns or even be made in a L-shape for a very contemporary feel.

Woodworking for Everyone: Bunk Beds Ladder
 
02:39
The most important design feature of bunk beds is safety and ensuring that the children who use them do so within strict guidelines. You can find clear regulations for making and using bunk beds on relevant consumer and home safety websites, and I would recommend consulting this information before attempting this project. Such requirements include size and positioning of guardrails, flush and smooth fastenings, sturdy and secure joints and maximum gap size between parts. The overall construction of these bunk beds consists of two child's beds, two bunk ends and one ladder. All of which are assembled with nuts and bolts to allow for quick dismantling and storage. The fully assembled bunk beds are sturdy and strong without looking bulky and over-engineered. Children can easily clamber up and down the ladder or jump into the bottom bunk as needed.

Woodworking for Everyone: Toy Box High Speed Construction
 
02:49
Pocket hole joinery is a technique that produces a more advanced right-angle joint between two pieces of wood and requires a special jig and accessories. My family had given me a set of this equipment for my birthday and I used to fasten the main corners on the toy box. The angled holes that feature in this process can be filled afterwards with pre-cut fillers while the unique wood screws are completely submerged within the two adjoining pieces of wood. The height of the boxes, including the wheels, could not exceed the lowest edge of the front of the children's beds, with additional clearance for fingers to allow the box to be rolled out. I determined the width by assuming two toy boxes would be used under one bed with sufficient clearance between them. A simple plywood base and four caster wheels on each corner completed the very simple yet sturdy construction.

Woodworking for Everyone: School Desk Animation
 
00:54
This traditional desk is a classic schoolhouse design with a footrest and a storage shelf underneath the work surface. It features runners along the base, which connect the seat with the work surface and sides. There are also aesthetic runners underneath either side of the desktop, which feature a 45-degree tapering that matches the base runners. The desk and bench legs also feature quarter-circle cutouts at the top and bottom, which ensures the design balances form with function -- it is a very solid construction without looking too bulky. All material is 20mm thick pine and ergonomically the desk is suitable for children aged 3 to 10 years. Cutting, gluing and colouring in also means the surface will take wear and tear so it needs to be practical enough to be repainted when needed. Wood screws were used as fasteners, ensuring the length of the screws were selected according to the overall thickness of pieces being joined. Only the screws fastening the top work surface need to be countersunk so that when it is sanded and finished, the screw heads are not visible

Woodworking For Everyone: Booster Step Animation (Half Lap Joints)
 
00:46
The step is made from 20mm solid pine, consisting of a flat piece on top that is fastened to a rigid base with a crosspiece connected to the two legs. In the first version of the design this crosspiece is connected to the legs with half-lap joints while the alternative design features a simple butt joint between the end of the crosspiece and the inside top surface of each leg. To ensure the step does not rock on a flat surface, each leg features a cutout along its base which can be straight or curved. In the alternative design the crosspiece also features a matching curved cutout. The construction is very sturdy and can withstand a significant amount of wear and tear. You can finish it with varnish or apply wood primer and then paint it a colour of your choice. I painted each twin's step a different colour and they decorated them with their favourite stickers.

Woodworking for Everyone: Child's Bed
 
00:46
This three-quarter size child's bed is lightweight and space efficient, yet strong and sturdy. It is made from only two different widths of 19mm thick wood. The final assembly consists of three main parts: two end assemblies and the base. The latter consists of equally spaced slats mounted on supports with side and end rails. The two end assemblies feature two legs and an end guardrail, and these are joined by the side guardrail. Use a foam mattress that fits the inner dimensions of the base and has a thickness of 100mm, which is sufficient ergonomic support for sleeping toddlers. To allow for dismantling and storage, the bed could be constructed as three sub-assemblies that are made and painted separately, then bolted together when needed. The slats could also be left loose and connected along two parallel lengths of rope with the same spacing as in the design.

Woodworking for Everyone: Wendy House Windows
 
02:57
This Wendy house creates a stylish and roomy space in your garden for everyone to enjoy. The large windows can be opened fully to bring in fresh air, the two skylights allow for plenty of natural light during the day and the raised base ensures the flooring remains free from damp. The high-pitched roof and wide floor dimensions create plenty of room that you can fill with toys and children's furniture. There are two skylights in the roof and the interior allows for future modifications, such as stairs and a landing area. The wooden roof is waterproofed with bitumen and the exterior wall covering is tongue-and-groove stacked horizontally and cut out for the door and windows. The base is raised above the ground and is mounted on hardwood stakes with stairs leading up to the balcony in the front. The interior frame consists of joists joined together, against which the side walls and roof are mounted. We also installed an electrical plug point, lighting, window fixtures and a sliding bolt on the door. See also pages 8 and 9 for more information on the Wendy house

Woodworking for Everyone: Small Bookcase Animation
 
00:46
The large bookcase was painted white to match other furniture in our house and finished off with a routered edge around the front and sides of the top surface to add a stylish feature. All joints are simple butt joints fastened with right-angle brackets, which are positioned on the underside for aesthetic purposes. To determine the shelf heights I used different sized books, with the largest ones on the lowest shelf and progressively smaller sizes higher up. Of the two bookcases made with the wider design, one was varnished and the other was painted blue, but no edging was done on either. Should you wish to alter the design, additional vertical supports at the midpoint would be required for shelf lengths greater than 1,5m. This chapter explains the construction steps of the small bookcase; however, the principles apply equally to both or any other variation of the design. If you want a different size and configuration of shelves, then just the dimensions and shelf heights would vary according to your needs

Woodworking for Everyone: Gym Bench (Long)
 
00:50
Two different lengths were made -- 830mm and 1800mm -- each with a standard width of 93mm and a height of 324mm. The design is very solid and functional, using slightly thicker wood than for a more decorative garden bench. These benches are designed to take a significant amount of wear and tear, which usually takes place in gyms from excessive moving around. I put a chamfer around the edges to avoid a sharp corner underneath people's legs when they are sitting down, especially as they may be in shorts or loose gym wear. The longer version of the bench features an extra brace centred on the underside of the seat support assembly. The rest of the design is exactly the same for the two benches; only the length of the seat slats and seat supports vary according to the different overall length. Wood screws are used throughout, and there are six main components: four legs, the seat support and the seat.

Knowing what type of storage and display space we needed the second time around was very beneficial in putting together some initial drawings, which we refined based on our interior design. The width is the same as the compactum, as it is intended to go above it, and the height is in proportion to the available wall space. The eight internal square compartments are extremely useful and well sized, while the top shelf provides a wider space that can display taller items. We also added decorative hooks to the lower shelf, which provided quick hanging space when needed. The solid backing ensures a very sturdy construction and the joints are all dados without any metal fasteners. A routered edging on the side pieces of the shelf completed the stylish finish.

Woodworking for Everyone: Workbench

An important aspect of any work surface is ergonomics and how you will be positioned when you use it. Usually workbenches are for standing next to while desks are lower because we sit at them in one position for longer periods. To get the right height for my requirements, I built this workbench with a higher work surface than I needed and trimmed off the legs until it was comfortable to stand at for long periods of time. However, there are some tasks that will require sitting at the workbench, such as using the scroll saw, soldering and model work, in which case an ordinary stool will be useful to sit on while working. If you are sitting you can rest your feet on the lower surface of the workbench, which is also useful for storage of larger tools and materials. I mounted a bench vice on the left and installed a drawer on the right to hold a socket spanner set, but these are optional and can be omitted if preferred.
