Barnwood Countertops #1: Introduction

936 days ago by spunwood | 2 comments »

At the beginning of August, with the discovery of mold in my kitchen, I began building new countertops. The wood for this work all came from my inlaws barnwood. After getting the countertops glued up, I was interupted by life (teaching, UPS, kids, divorce, and more). Where I left off, I had just gotten the sections back from a local cabinetshop where it was run through a drum sander….. Well, FOUR MONTHS LATER, what a thrill to get back into the shop three days ago. I am tryi...

shop bench with lots of storage #10: fabricating the risers and getting the beast off of my bench...

735 days ago by Mainiac Matt | 2 comments »

tweeked the riser design back to the four riser layout in the original plan…. this will decrease the unsupported span on the top and create a solid load path from the bench top to the floor. I didn’t have as many hard wood 3×5’s kicking around as I thought (and the two I found had deep checks) ... so I’m also going back to dimensional lumber for the risers and will double up the outboard pair. Rather than making a HD run and picking the 2×6 pileR...

Prairie Settle Sectional #3: Linking Stretchers - Advice Please!!

2158 days ago by James Early | 2 comments »

Ok. One of the things I’ve asked myself when designing this project is, “How are stretchers linked together?” In particular, I wondered how to handle intersections of three and four stretchers. I didn’t include this in the initial drawings, because I expected to add the details later. We call this “hand waving” in computer science. Anyway, the time has come to nail this down, so to speak. I have an idea that I think will work, but I would appreciate hear...

Penguin Tool Chest #8: Finishing the Carcass and Starting the Drawers

981 days ago by bobasaurus | 2 comments »

I finally managed to finish the last part of the carcass assembly by gluing in the vertical divider. It’s looking pretty awesome with everything together (except for the cheap pine plywood, which I’ll cover with some material after finishing): This weekend, I’ve been spending my time flattening and cutting up a ridiculously twisted and bowed elm board: This will become the drawer sides. After spending hours and hours with a combination of hand planes, the joi...
