Coming soon “Madison’s Dresser”

January 5, 20153 Comments

Now that I don’t have the holidays to use as an excuse for why I’m not in the shop I guess I should just get off my fat butt and start working on some new projects and content for the show? I don’t want to come across as this being a chore, or something I’m […]

536 “I love lamp” the veneer lampshade

December 22, 20143 Comments

During the long, cold winter nights I like to cozy up with a hot cup of cider and sit down to watch a movie or read a good book, and to help set the mood (because who DOESN’T take the time to set a mood?) I’ll turn on a nice accent light and let it […]

535 Wood body coffee scoop

December 12, 20146 Comments

Mornings can be rough for me, but a good cup of coffee can make all the difference. Over the years we’ve tried several different coffee makers, including the K-cups, but in the end we always come back to our good old Mr. Coffee coffee maker. As a result it’s important to make sure I get […]

534 Sharp as a Razor

November 24, 20143 Comments

The end of Movember is rapidly approaching, and that means soon there’s going to be a run on razor blades as some men return to their clean shaven ways. I’m not quite sure why anyone would want to do that, but to each their own I guess? So in today’s episode we’re making a stylish, […]

533 Hickory Beard Comb

November 7, 20144 Comments

In today’s episode we’re making a fun little project from more scrap wood lying around my shop, specifically we’re building a beard comb. Why a beard comb? Given it’s the beginning of November, that means it’s also the beginning of “Movember.” So I thought it would be a fun little project for some of my […]

532 H.O. Studley Tool Chest

October 24, 20144 Comments

The H.O. Studley Tool Chest is considered by many to be THE “Iconic Tool Chest,” the very tool chest that all others are compared to, and the envy of every woodworker who set their eyes upon it. On the outside it’s constructed of a gorgeous Cuban Mahogany, but it’s the meticulousness of the organization on […]

531 Desktop Album Rack

October 10, 20140 Comments

No one will ever be able to say the Vanderlist family vinyl collection is overwhelming. It’s diverse to say the least, but that has more to do with them being picked up solely for use in a photo shoot by my wife versus played. Actually, we don’t even own a turntable, so even if we […]

Become a Patron of Matt’s Basement Workshop Podcast

October 3, 20148 Comments

For a long time now I’ve been trying to find a way to take Matt’s Basement Workshop Podcast to the next level. So what exactly is the “next level?” Well I have an idea, but it’s never been worth talking about because I never had the time to create a plan to get there. That […]

Woodworking in America 2014 picture album

September 16, 20142 Comments

Another Woodworking in America is in the history books, and once again it was an experience I’m thankful to have had. The friends, the classes, and especially the market place all combined to make it worth every minute of my visit. As you’ve heard by now, my trip wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t […]

530 Small turned mallet or “My first turning project!”

August 28, 201415 Comments

I knew it was eventually going to happen, the temptation is far too great to avoid. Don’t worry, I’m not talking about turning to the darkside and taking up knitting (although I wouldn’t mind making my own matching wool scarf and woobie set for winter, especially if it’s as cold as last year.) Instead, I’m […]
