Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #8: Drawer Construction

09-21-2014 05:49 PM by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

We have had rain for several days as the remnants of the hurricane that hit the Baja has drifted over Texas and onto our heads! So I couldn’t go to the lumber yard. Instead, I went through my lumber rack and dug up all of the maple I could find and a few pieces of poplar. I managed to mill enough for the six top drawers. These drawers have 4 inch sides so there were a few pieces that got glued together and then milled. The drawer fronts have half blind dovetails. The rear of e...

Why buy it when you can make it! #14: Birthday Party Activity [Part 2] - Duck Duck, Goose?

09-21-2014 04:41 PM by paxorion | 1 comment »

With only a few more weekends to go, the time will undoubtedly fly by before my daughter’s birthday party. Knowing my track record, I opted to high tail it, so that I would be able to pre-prime the parts before the party. I managed to sneak some time in this weekend to: Trace out and rough cut the remaining 16 ducks – I tried to do as much work as I could at home before heading into the shop. I’ve decided I need a new jig saw. My Skil (older version of the 4290 one) i...

103.23900 Jointer #1: "Free" 103.23900 Craftsman Jointer

09-21-2014 04:27 PM by B4B | 5 comments »

You’ve probably heard the saying, “There’s no such thing as a free puppy”. In this case my “free puppy” is an older 6” craftsman jointer someone posted on Craigslist. I guess they were moving and didn’t have the time or desire to take it with them. Here’s the catch, it was partially dis-assembled. I don’t really know why, since it’s in overall good shape, with some minor surface rust. Here’s a picture of it from whe...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #2: Dollar Store Glue Applicators

09-21-2014 02:53 PM by technoslick | 12 comments »

A short time ago I found a tip on the Web that I had to follow-up on. Rockler sells a silicone bristled glue applicator brush for $4.99: When the white/yellow glue dries on the bristles, it peels and flakes off with little resistance. Nice. Buy the brush once and you won’t have to replace it any time soon. This tip I found was even better. Your local dollar store sells silicone basters for the kitchen for a fifth of the price of Rockler’s offering. Here’s what I pi...

Kitchen Cabinets in an OLD Home.

09-21-2014 06:15 AM by GotHardWood | 5 comments »

We bought a house that was built in the 1930’s from a Sears & Roebuck catalog. In keeping with the existing cabinets (which she decided we love), I had to build her some uppers to go above the stove. Of course.this meant remodeling the entire kitchen. The existing cabinets are pine everything. Chromed hinges and handles with glass knobs on the doors. After stripping out the old BX wiring and running more conventional electrics, and replacing all the 1/4 inch hardboard walls with 1/...

Craftsman/King Seeley 9x30 Lathe #6: Finally made a home + important trivia facts

09-21-2014 02:50 AM by Rick M. | 8 comments »

Been putting this off for bookoo long time.Gotta rip out this workbench to make a home for my lathe. Fun trivia: That paper tacked to the wall under the hammer is a plan I drew for a set of end tables I made in 1999, it’s been there since. Demo! Trivia: the plastic bag hanging askew left of the auger bits has been there about 16 years. It’s a clear mounting plate for a router table. I built a router table without using it. Hammerthumb, if you are watchi...
