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...

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...
In this video I show the inner workings for the drawers. Hope you get a few tips and most of all, enjoy it.Cheers,Andy.
In this video I made a custom jig for my router. Also there a a few tips a long the way. Thanks for watching.

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...

Rough – fitted the second set of stairs and ready to start patterning them for the rest them…sanding! everyting going together well, some minor adjusting/lineup will be needed for final fitting.
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...
So this project was fast and furious it took two days and is not my most amazing project but I let my 12 year old son do most of the work and it is square and level.
