Part 1: crown

11-04-2012 10:04 PM by BryanatWoodstock | 8 comments »

Clients drawing very similar to this one. Except no shelf above tv, doors on bottom of tall cabinets. He supplied 100 bd ft of 4/4 ash cut from his bush. Big item to build in my over crowded hobby shop! I’m making the cabinets from 3/4” poplar core oak veneer I got at HD. Had them slice them up to make it easier to handle in my small shop. Set up the Laguna scoring saw and cut the dadoes. Assembled the cabinets, made up face frames using pocket screws, then biscuits to hold to t...

Part 6: milling parts for doors, drawers , top, etc.

11-19-2012 11:52 AM by BryanatWoodstock | 0 comments »

I got a few hrs in the shop this weekend, milling lumber for the top of the drawer unit , drawer fronts, etc. from the best of the Ash lumber. Milled up the door rails and stiles. I still need to select from whats left of the Ash for a couple of raised panels for the lower doors. Doesn’t take long to chew threw 100 bd ft of log run stock. Trying to select parts between knots on lower grade lumber really creates a lot of waste.

Part 10: Making arched top glass doors

I made a jig to hold the stock and follow the curve for the arch. Used info from my door calculator program (Rockler) to calculate the radius for the arch.I placed a back stop 5” from the jigs front edge, trace the curve onto the 7/8” x 5” stock and bandsaw close to the pencil line.I have my cutter sets doubled stacked on the 3/4” spindle with a rub bearing on the bottom. The toggle clamps make good handles to steer the jig past the cutters.I cope the ends using a Shop...
