Simple process for making shelf pins using a router and table saw.

I was in a hurry, and as every woodworker knows, being in a hurry leads to creative new features. If you ever want to make your own shelf pins, this video shows one way to do it. If you don’t have a router table, you could probably rig up a jig to do the same thing with a hand saw, bandsaw, or whatever you have available.

The final product shown at the end was made from ambrosia maple I milled years ago from a tree that came down during a hurricane, and the contrasting details on the front of the door were from plum trees that likewise got knocked over in strong winds. The hinge was a cut-off from an old piano hinge. Other than the finishing materials, this project cost me almost nothing to build and was made only from things I already had in the workshop. You can see more pictures on my Instagram page.

This is a video of me sawing plum logs on the bandsaw:

Here’s me sawing some bigger logs using an Alaskan sawmill:

This is the dowel-making jig I mention in this video:
